Nice place to go for great food. Great ambiance with lots of creative and delicious dishes. I went for a happy hour/dinner, we ordered several appetizers from the happy hour menu ( which extends till 8.00 pm) and couple of entrees for the table and shared, which worked out perfectly.

I have been to House Kitchen & Bar several times. Great location and food and drinks. The Happy Hour menu is perfect. They offer HH until 8pm. Plenty of food and drinks at Happy Hour prices. I usually eat inside but the patio was comfortable. Sitting outside it seemed like I was in another large town other than Sacramento. Great... More

Excellent location, great attending staff but the menu is poor. Very little choices at a very high price for the lunch crowd. It doesn't offer any specials for lunch. The food is exquisite but the portions are on the small side for the price. They are served in big plates but still small amount. I'd recommend to expand their menu... More

Had a rough day on the road. Took a walk and found this place completely by accident. Had a really good dinner (beer can chicken!) and a nice cocktail. Seems happy hour goes until 8 during the week! Prices were really reasonable, especially being right on Capitol Mall, and service was great. Gem, and I'll be back next time I'm... More

Chris, the owner, makes each visit so very special. The food is creative, healthy, fun, unique, varied and delicious. Chris has a great outlook and, wanting his place to be warm and welcoming, kind of like visiting a friend's house, he does not charge a corkage fee. His bar is quite lovely and offers fun and interesting cocktails. We live... More

This restaurant was a real delight, and unexpectedly so. The staff was friendly and fun. The food was varied and very reasonable. There were four of us and the comments were all about how fresh and well presented the food was, then how it was well prepared and delicious. Fantastic. Even though the restaurant is very out of the way... More

Had a $25 certificate so decided to try for HH. They have a fairly large selection of specialty cocktails for $5 and beer/wine for $2-$5. Tried the spicy chicken pieces. The chicken was fine but was served with flash fried rice noodles that were for just show. Pretty tasteless. Also had the lettuce wraps which were pretty tasty but were... More

The restaurant is right on Capitol Mall, which is a quiet area after five, but the place was packed on a Friday night. When we arrived at seven, happy hour was still on at the Bar, which is a very comfortable place to sit, and very pretty, too. The Special drinks menu was interesting and the drinks were large and...

Contemporary chic decor, sumptuous gourmet comfort food, and the world's largest wire whisk display (trying to get into the Guinness Book for World Records)...with all this, who could ask for more? Oh yea, throw in great service and lively atmosphere to boot. This is just a fabulous dining option only 3 blocks from the state capitol, so happy for another... More

I found out about House from Restaurant.Com so I was pleased to purchase a gift certificate and give the place a try. I went for dinner on Friday, October 22nd. I immediately felt welcomed with the gracious hostess and the lovely warm, upscale interior. Since it was rainy out, the patio wasn't an option and I was tossed between the... More
