Great food, great service. The fish and chips were enough to feed three people. Plus you get parking validated which is an added bonus due to the recent increase in parking rates.

Stopped here while we were in town on business and really enjoyed the lunch. We sat outside on one of the nicer days. I had a sandwich during one stop and a salad on another stop here. Both times we stopped, we really enjoyed the meal. They have a great location right near the capital downtown. I definitely would suggest... More

This place rocks! Chef came and met with us because our daughter is a celiac. We have had past disasters and are super cautious. The chef shared exactly what he can do and the flavoring a he uses. The food was INCREDIBLE. The kids talked about the flavoring and my husband and I were seriously impressed with the quality and... More

A group of house decided to meet out for happy hour and it was decided that we would switch it up a bit from our usual spot. This place was just perfect. Easy to get to right off the freeway(I-5 & J Street downtown), plenty of early evening parking (paid and free after 6pm). They do have outdoor seating available... More

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

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. All the dishes we ordered were great tasting, from sliders... 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
