We are sitting in the restaurant as I write this review. Beautiful quaint atmosphere with a tree covered canopy patio outside. We just had a pleasant conversation with the owner, she was very helpful and welcoming. The staff are very down to earth, friendly and efficient. The food is excellent.

The food is inventive and daring!! The menu changes often but some classics are the soda bread with bread and butter with Red Sea salt, pork chop is a regular. When in season the fresh burrata and tomatoes are a must ! This place invented the local-- farm to fork movement-- Sacramento has great local agriculture and Pat takes advantage... More

If you are asked if you would like to be seated in the "dish room", jump on it and you'll be happy you did! We met friends there and were delighted to have a quiet dinner in a private room with just the four of us. The shelves on the walls were filled with serving platters and dishes. Many tea... More

i joined 4 other colleagues for a business dinner in the private room at Mulvaney's and the service and food was excellent. I had an outstanding groper dish. The owner greeted us outside the restaurant and I had the opportunity to congratulate him. The only misstep was due to the lack of parking on the street we put the rental... More

Every meal I've had at Mulvaney's has been excellent and the atmosphere is cozy yet energetic. The patio is a wonderful spot for spring or summer dates. Seasonal menu, excellent wine offerings. Desserts to die for.

The ambience of this restaurant is welcoming much like its chef Patrick Mulvanely. This is one of the better restaurants in Sacramento. It is in a great old structure and the courtyard dinning is one of the best places in spring and summer. Farm to fork is practiced here and the freshness of the food is obvious and the waiters...
