Had a fab lunch overlooking the river on the Delta King. We were offered lunch upstairs in the really quaint bar, but the TV was on and lots of people were following a football match and it just wasn't for us. I'm sure the food would've been just as good, but we preferred the quiet dining room downstairs. If we'd... More

After reading up prior to the trip, my boyfriend and I wanted to make sure we sampled the menu here. We were situated on the terrace, which got a bit chilly as the evening went on, but being British we weren't too fussed. Food was excellent, however it was our first night out in Sacramento, we were not aware of... More

This is located right in the heart of Old Sacramento, located on a riverboat. The inside decor is lovely, very historic and gracious. The menu was varied, and priced fairly for the area. We had a large group, and everyone was more than happy with their choices. Juicy Kobe Beef burgers, varied pasta dishes, fresh fish and chips were some... More

but I got the distinct impression that the boat could sink at any time without warning (but then I am a bit paranoid). Food was great and the service too. Good value for the money.

Food and service were just OK. Hostess told us we couldn't raise the shades, so having a table overlooking the river meant zilch. You're on a frickin' boat so you'd expect to be able to have a view of the water! Nope. Flies bothered us throughout the meal. Server never asked if we wanted coffee or dessert. Never felt appreciated... More

They offer bar seating, banquette seating or outdoor. Our service was responsive from Max. The burger was impressive, properly cooked just through. This would make a cosy, get-away-from-all lunch spot.

Very nice dinner on a quiet October visit, based on recommendations from friends. Yelp reviews suggested the beef ravioli and it was delicious and a good portion. I also suggest the watermelon salad. Unique decor in an unusual setting. Friendly and helpful wait staff and not terribly expensive.

Found this with an internet search which had good reviews. Finding it the first time wasn't easy and parking proved to be difficult on a Thursday evening about 7:00 PM. They seated me promptly even though my husband was trying to find parking. The valet parking was full except for overnight hotel guests. Service was excellent and kept making sure... More

Last night I met a friend for a drink after work in the bar of the Pilothouse. The atmosphere in the bar was lively but not noisy. Drink prices were reasonable/standard. It was a Thursday, which is Irish Night and the band playing was One-Eyed Reilly and I would love to see them again. Since I didn't eat, I can't... More

My daughters had arranged for the family to have a brunch for my birthday here. When we arrived at the reservation time, they apologetically told us that there were still customers in our place, but we would only have to wait 10 minutes and our champagne would be complimentary. After 5 minutes, the manager checked in with us again, and... More
