About

Our Goal at The Waterboy is to provide you with a wonderful dining experience. Taking inspiration from the cuisines of southern France and northern Italy, we feature a new menu every month to take full advantage of our local, seasonal ingredients. Our menu features naturally raised meats, local organic produce and freshly baked breads. Along with great service and a terrific, reasonably priced wine list, we think you will be quite pleased with a visit to The Waterboy.

This is my favorite restaurant in Sacramento. You can count on the quality and service. They also have excellent wine. Great desserts too. Very consistent. This is a great place for a long lunch or dinner. You do not want to rush this experience. Sophisticated.

Three of us had the halibut and it was perfectly cooked; the accompanying corn and tomato butter were tasty. The fourth person in our group had the "picnic special" and enjoyed that as well.

In Sacramento on business for a few days and discovered this gem. If we lived here, this would become our place. Engaging menu and all around special spot. The potato gratin is not to be missed. One of the best wine lists I've seen in quite awhile - including a nice selection of half bottles.

Everything was great except for the service that evening. Our server, Naomi was absent most of the time and rarely seen on the floor. Thankfully the manager delivered our meals and another server assist us with our bill.
We normally have exceptional service unfortunately on this particular evening we didn't have a memorable experience.
We will go back because we love the restaurant and its changing menu.
