Great from start to finish

Far exceeded my expectations. Service could not have been any more attentive and the food, especially the salmon was truly exceptional. Excellent crème brulee and coffee were a nice way to close out a great meal.

The staff was very good! Properly greeted, seated promptly, wait staff was attentive and caring. Food was served hot, appearance was good, and tasty! The ambiance of this restaurant on a boat, docked on the river, is perfect for all occasions. It is also "child" friendly as well, providing a great place for families, early evening. I say this, as... More

We like the food at the Pilothouse. No matter what you get, it is good. The price is a little higher than normal, but I enjoy the ambiance with sitting on the water and watching an occasional boat slide by. I marked it a 4 only because the service is a bit slow, and if you're hungry, it can be... More

We stayed in the hotel and decided to try the restaurant for convenience and the atmosphere. Our dinner was very good, but I feel it was a bit overpriced. We ate in the restaurant in the morning with our breakfast voucher and the breakfast was Excellent! The Servers were very nice.

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
