I am came here with a big group of people. We preordered with reservations. Arrived at 6:30 and didn't get our food until 7:50-8:00. My food was cold. The waitress spilled red sauce on my shirt and jacket. Walked away with out telling me. When she saw other people cleaning it off my back, she apologized. My food tasted good and the staff was nice. But waiting 1.5 hrs for cold food that was overpriced is not worth it. Will not return.

We came in, the greeted us very well. Our survey seemed to b eather drunk a little or simply did not care much. When we finally came around to our order we got appetizers and after had to wait over an hour for our food. When we asked what was the wait when they were not even busy that night. They said they just put in an order that they were waiting for my husband to finish on the salad. I asked y did our food had to b put on hold when he was the only one who had salad and all of the rest 4 ppl had ordered food. He gave me lame excuse did not even apologize. When we finally got our food it was good. I can't say say it was bad, maybe not great but good. The fruity alcohol drinks are not good there either. This is my second time there and I will have to admit I was disappointed twice. It was dirty a little 2. I don't now how in side we sat outside both times but there were spider webs and carpet seemed kind of old too . Chairs and tables could use and up date if they tried. It was a fair place. But for there prices for plates and location u expect better quality then this.

If your appetite contemplates more than burgers or simple foods, you'll love it here.

Went to this place on a beautiful Sunday morning. We wanted a table outside on the edge to get a better view of the water so we just had to wait a very short 15 mins (ran over to check out some of the Old Sacramento shops to kill some time). Their Eggs Benedict was good. Nothing to write home about but the view makes up for it. My wife tried their Vegetable Omlette and it was very good. The plate prices were very reasonable. Definitely would go for brunch again with some friends, there's not too many places in town to get a Benedict with a view.

They sat me at a table with spiderwebs on it, did not refill water or bread even though the waiter said he would, the food was not that great and the portions were small. Also, the menu was more expensive than the one Google linked me to. At least the river views were nice and the plating of the food was very beautiful. Maybe I'd have gotten better service inside?

We tried the San Francisco sourdough stuffed with cheese as an appetizer and it was simply great. It must have been only 6 ingredients but the flavors were all there. For the main course I had the tenderloin and it was juicy and cooked to perfection. My wife had the wild salmon on asparagus and wild mushroom risotto and that was great too. Although the main course took over 30 min to arrive it was welcomed because thats how long risotto takes to cook. Do not pass up the Tiramisu for dessert, so fluffy, and cocoa-ly, just heavenly.

Food is edible but really nothing special and absolutely not worth the price. Go to Ten22 instead.

Gino took fantastic pictures for us! He shot many of our food items, various ways we accommodate our banquets & large parties, and took outside patio view photos... all in four hours! He told me in advance what to do and we achieved greatness in this short amount of time thanks to him! A pleasure to work with!
