Same great waiter as last time--same poor facility (uncomfortable seating- loud area with co-diners. BUT- the FOOD was worth all the discomfort! The entire experience, together with slightly painful prices , was totally worth it. We will return for any 'special" occasion.

We don’t even travel to the city anymore for fine dining. It can be found right here, and better than any of the places we’ve tried in Sacramento. Don’t miss the heirloom tomato salad in the summer. SO good!
