Loud place. Crazy busy but great service. Good food. Wonderful selection, even for vegetarians! Nice portions, generous drinks. Very young crowd.

This is a good place to go if you're just looking for quick eats next to the Broadway show or convention center. Like most people, once you park your car downtown you don't want to have to try to move when it comes time to eat. This is where Capitol Garage comes in handy. Being right around the corner from...

Had a family dinner here with 12 people on a Sunday night so we probably taxed the kitchen but the food was great, the drinks were honest and the service was great. The waitress was very patient and helped us sort through our various eating preferences. Overall I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a new place to... More

I had an excellent breakfast with a business colleague at this restaurant in Sacramento. The service was good and the omelette i had was excellent. Lots of fresh veggies. They were also quite quick which we really appreciated. Lastly, the vibe of the restaurant was urban hip. Although I am neither of those, i felt completely at home!

We stopped for dinner before the theater. The meals were solid but unremarkable. I would venture to find other restaurants. I doubt I will return.

When you look at the decor and the name you think you are going to get comfort food. Unfortunately, the beef is grass fed and everything is too fru fru e.g., the dry hamburger had a funny sauce and mystery greens -- what ever happened to a good greasy, grain fed beef burger with the usual toppings.

Just down the street from the Marriott. The food was really good. Had a burger that was quite tasty. Would eat there again next time in Sac.

Found a groupon for this downtown restaurant and gave it a try... I saw some of the bad reviews but kept an open mind... The place has some nice lunch options... We tried some sandwiches and tacos.. Both were pretty good . Our waiter was nice... This place is a little pricey... Twenty bucks for a burger is a little... More

Love the food once it arrives at your table but the business model seems to work on the principle that Good food is worth the wait. The pork chop dinner was incredibly delicious but it seemed so long between order and delivery that many drinks could have been consumed....The wait staff was knowledgeable, personable and good with their recommendations without...
