They have pisco sour (not in the menu), I completely recommend trying it! I ordered pasta and it was tasty and at a reasonable price.

I recently held a Surprise Birthday Party at this restaurant. They had been recommended by my daughter. I had 31 guests for dinner and even with a large party they handled us with great care. Food was excellent and my guests were extremely pleased with the taste and quality given them. They gave us 6 menu choices, which was more... More

From the moment you step into the Red Rabbit, you know that you are in excellent hands: the wait staff are efficient and friendly, the restaurant ambiance is simple, elegant and spotlessly clean. Food items on the menu are interesting and healthy. We had the smoked salmon sandwich with apple hill apples! Delicious!

Finding ourselves in mid-town Sacramento for an appointment, we decided to try a new place where we've never been before. It was noon, and the Red Rabbit wasn't too busy on a Tuesday so we decided to give it a go. There's a patio area out front on J Street, and our old haunt from twenty years ago, Harlow's, was...

I read about this restaurant somewhere and it sounded somewhat unique so we finally got to try it out coming through here with Amgen Tour of CA. It was great. Everything, the service, the atmosphere, the food was so good. We had Tagli You're It, a pasta dish with sausage made from rabbit, pork and chicken in a basil sauce.... More

Relatively new, and very worth visiting. My wife and I had heard it was primarily a young person's place, but despite us being in our seventies, we greatly enjoyed it. We came a little after normal lunch time, and found only two other couples eating and chatting -- with no young people. Drinking was fun. My wife had Harvey Milk... More

My friend and I went to The Red Rabbit for lunch. It was my first visit. I was very impressed with the atmosphere. The menu was different and unusual. I am told it is forever changing and is different from the dinner menu. They use farm to fork vegetables, spices and entree items. They have a huge bar and a... More

Stopped in after work for happy hour and was pleasantly surprised. We sat outside on the covered, heated patio and the waitress was very attentive. Prices during HH were very reasonable but dinner items seemed a bit pricey after. Everything we ordered tasted pretty good and the menu had a nice range of items. They definitely seemed to know what... More

This is a "Young people's place". Very lively, nice in a way, but the noise level got to me after a while. I wished I had brought ear plugs. The duck breast was ok, but have had better. Good vegetables, but an ordinary brown sauce with duck is a mistake.

Three of us met around 7 on a Monday night. It was pleasantly busy and we sat at the bar. The bar is a big horseshoe bar and the atmosphere is casual. This restaurant won several categories in "best of Sacramento" and so I wanted to check it out. They were in the top 3 for best happy hour and... More
