Went for a birthday during dine downtown week 2017. Those that had cocktails thought they were great, generous and well worth the price of $10 and $11. The New York steak (regular menu) was cooked to a near perfect medium rare and was juicy. For the rest of us, the dine downtown menu was wonderful. We all thought the Parsnip... More

The place is close to my heart; it was the place my wife and I had our first date. They closed down for a year to remodel, so this was our first visit since they reopened. How things have changed. Over priced menu, food and drinks, and mediocre food. We average pizza, mushroom salad (which had zero favour) and creamy... More

We don't eat out much so maybe our reaction that everything seem very pricey doesn't match current pricing in up-scale restaurants. Our entries, scallops ($32) and salmon ($28), were superbly seasoned and cooked just right. Wine was $14 a glass, desserts were $10, Irish Coffee was $10, etc. Total bill was over $160. Waiter was informative and pleasant, but not... More

Recently renovated and reopened the patio is reason enough to go! It is truly one of the most lively settings in the city. The menu is a little limited. I started with the apple and celery salad and then had pasta both were good. They have a decent wine list and obligatory signature cocktail menu. I would go back --... More

Work associates brought me here and I was duly impressed with the patio. The water features were great and the ambience perfect. The weather cooperated so it was really enjoyable dining outside. I ordered the arugula salad and although I liked it- it was very salty and too lemony. The swordfish special was cooked perfectly and had a great sauce-... More

Had dinner on Tuesday with a group of six. Still the best outdoor patio in town. Wait staff was cordial but disappointing. We were offered bread and the waited 15 minutes for it. If my wine glass is empty before dinner comes out , ask me if I'd like another glass of something. Waiting for it once the food has... More

Beautiful patio for lunch or dinner and for quiet conversation with friends. Lunch menu is varied to fit all tastes. One of my lunch mates had pan seared trout. The other had a cabbage, chicken and cashew salad while I had a scrumptious BLT pannini.

Fabulous atmosphere and close freeway access. The service and food are delightful. My favorites are the Kale salad and the amazing loaf of sourdough bread!

Our menu and bar program are influenced by French classics, yet dictated by the seasonal bounty of the Sacramento region. Originally established in 1983, the restaurant underwent an extensive remodel in 2015, combining both modern and traditional elements to create a relaxed, timeless environment that lets the food and drinks take center stage. The light and airy interior opens up to the renowned dining patio that features waterfalls, 60 year-old olive trees and a large fireplace. **Limited bar menu served Tuesday-Friday from 2p-5:30p**
