Zinfandel Grille - Sacramento
We were very pleased with our reservation punctuality and the table service was excellent. Our meal was outstanding and we love coming to Zinfandel.
Ready for us promptly at our reservation time. Food was delicious...scallops for me and Kobe steak for husband. Service was great. Mgr came over to assist our waitress as we were redeeming Open Table points. Very pleasant!
The service was amazing. We had the best time and the food was delicious, the drinks from the bar were really fancy.
Overall, it was a very nice dinner for a birthday celebration. The service and food were fantastic. Our server was very attentive, polite, engaging and fun. The food was incredible. We brought in our own cake and the servers took care of everything regarding that. I really recommend this place.
Good American fare, well prepared. Not much for vegans to sample, FYI.
cindy being our waitperson always if we can have her is so wonderful and Greg the manager so nice to us too and manages the restaurant so well
Very nice restaurant. We took our parents there for their anniversary and they loved it. Food was very tasty and service was great. We definitely will be back.
Everything about our dinner there was perfect! We were seated as soon as we got there and we were not hurried in any way!
Disappointed that I didn’t get anything for my birthday! The table next to us did!
Then, no more music! That’s why we went there! They’ve always had great music! Has been a wonderful place for nice dinner music! So disappointed they’ve stopped this!
Not too many places in Sac that has live good music!!
Always a pleasure. Servers are pleasant and helpful.
Sigh. We have previously been big fans of Zinfandel. This time ... not so much. Food was great as always but service was terrible. We took guests and were embarrassed by the lack of attentiveness from the wait staff. I hope it was a fluke. This is not a “cheap” restaurant and so poor service stands out.
Emailed the manager and he did respond with an apologetic email. Appreciated that.
We had the special pasta prawn tagliatelle and it was amazing. This place never disappoints. And our server, Cynthia was fabulous as always.
My client and I both had the grilled salmon special. It was prepared perfectly. Service was impeccable and we even had a staff member race outside before I drove off to give me my credit card back. Would definitely go again.
Extremely slow service for beverage order and subsequent service of beverages. Clam chowder tasted like bacon chowder. Only minimal amount of dressing on Caesar salad - lacked flavor. Entrees served few minutes after soup service so entree cooled by the time eaten. Hamburger served with only one small piece of lettuce and pickle slice and two small slices of tomato - insufficient amount to cover and complement burger patty - similar to past experiences. Always pleased that we are seated per request for window table. Overall service and food continues to be poor compared to 10 - 25 years ago.
Our "go-to" place....always good food and pleasant service.
Great night out with friends to celebrate.
Zinfandel Grill is also consistent. I always have a good meal there and a good time. The service is excellent, too.
We had excellent service with our lunch party of 7. Everyone enjoyed her meal except me. The Cobb salad was a disappointment and this is a simple dish. The Gorgonzola dressing was lackluster in flavor and watery. The chicken was overcooked and dry. The romaine lettuce was enough for two lunches but that was unnecessary of course. I dine here often with my husband and am usually very satisfied. This dish, however, needs work.
We brought my 90 year old mother in law. The staff gave us a table where she didn't have to walk very far. Also, I'm on a vegan diet and our waiter was very helpful. He was able to check with the kitchen to make sure, with a few alterations, they could prepare a vegetable panini without cheese, to meet my dietary requirements.
I am always impressed with the environment, service, and food. The hostess and server’s along with the bussing Staff are always eager to please. The presentation and quality of food is a clear representation of the cooks pride in their work. I would highly recommend zinfandel Grille if you are a foodie for delicious, fresh, handmade food. This restaurant is a perfect choice for special occasions, date night or a weekly trip to yourself.
Great food and service! Our server Joe is a real pro who knows the menu and always makes wine recommdations that are spot on .
As always, both of our dinners were tasty and artfully presented. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive.
Business dinner. Always good
5-6:30 meal is a good time for customers with hearing issues.
We brought our friends here for their first visit and everything was wonderful as anticipated. We were greeted and taken to our requested booth promptly which was much appreciated! Servers were excellent. Food came quickly enough however my husbands plate was not hot enough. Our friend had ordered her filet butterflied and well done but she had to send it back. It was excellent when the second plate came back to her. Drinks were yummy. We will definitely be back many more times! Thanks for a lovely evening.
Zinfandel Grille should have made known when reservations were made being made for New Years that there would be a special menu that was double the price, yet half the value. The food was processed and undercooked. The prices were astronomical. We were put in a back room where there was very little ambiance. To say that it was a disappointment is an extreme understatement! Shame on the Zinfandel Grille. My dining there up to this point has been stellar and that is why I scheduled to come there on New Years. I won't be doing that again!
I experienced lovely New Year's Eve dinner with my niece. The food was good and the service was excellent. The only distracting factor was that we were seated very close to the bar, and people tended to lean on short wall next to us and stare down at us.
Family dinner for New Year's Eve. Everyone ordered a different salad and entree, and they were all excellent. Will go again.
Food was excellent. Our only complaint was it was super noisy on Friday night and we couldn’t hear the live music group very well.
Table was ready and service great. The menu has lower priced option food if you have children (pizza, calzones, hamburgers). We had a variety of dishes and all were good.
Our server was very good. The food was good. The dining room is lovely. We were taken care of immediately.
Our party of 9 with reservations and having traveled from various locations to get together waited for an honor and a half for entrees to be served. They “lost” our order and management did not offer to make amends. Very disappointing.
Our Christmas Eve experience at Zinfandel Grille was outstanding on every level. Service was outstanding, excellent food, a really good old fashioned, and sinful bread pudding. This place is high on our list in Sacramento.
The Women's bathroom was a mess, I sent my food back due to not liking how it was cooked and it was not cooked any longer they just added more hot sauce.
My bro and sis-in-law took our dad for Christmas Lunch and it was great because it was quiet (he can't hear well) and the food was to his liking! Dad had the braised short ribs and ate every bite! Sis and I had salads--she the beet and me the Asian chicken. Both were great. No cocktails (it was lunch) and the bill was very reasonable. We will return.
Zinfandel continues to be solid. We had a nice Christmas Eve lunch. Great server and food was perfect!
We arrived at the restaurant and were properly seated. The bus boy was very prompt and our glasses were always full and plates and cutlery were promptly replaced. As for the waiter.. we didn't see him for at least 15 minutes after we were seated. The 2 main entrees on the menu that we were planning on ordering were not available, it was 6:30pm!! So we ordered the special and it took over 45min to receive our meal. The fish was so dry that it crumbled when you cut it, and the potatoes were cold. Not once did the waiter return to our table once the food was served to ask how our food was, or if we needed anything else. The only other time we saw him was at the end when the check was being given. It was our first and last time we will ever come to your restaurant.
We were there for a family birthday. Loved our food and had excellent service..
Nice ambiance, not too noisy, excellent service and very good food. The Kobe beef was amazing. The environment is casual overall, but the decor is moderately elegant. A nice combination. The bread was served as we were being seated, and the rest of the service was just as timely. We will definitely return.
Zinfandel Grille has been a favorite restaurant of mine and my family for many years. The food is always excellent, and the staff are friendly and accommodating.
