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?

All rivers lead to the sea, including Sacramento’s Rio City Café. This culinary casting brings an authentic and warm-hearted slice of Old Sacramento, spawning to its finest. This great establishment, pays homage to the denizens of the deep, offering scrumptious seafood with no catch, no fusion confusion, flashy lures or over-priced raw nibbles that leave you hankering for a hamburger. You won’t find anything out of a jar here; everything is made fresh. You’ll get hooked on the Clam Chowder, Salmon or the daily selection of fresh fish, all at a price that won’t leave you feeling like you were caught, hook, line and sinker. The value in itself is worthy of repeated encores. Don’t let this be the big one that got away.

The served my wife Escolar, a fish that is banned in several countries. We thought we would give it another chance so we went back yesterday for dinner with my dad and we all got seriously sick and we all ate something different. I had yellowtail my wife had salmon and my dad had chicken skewers with Greek marinade. We are never going there again.

Decent food, but can be slow. I ordered a simple appetizer and waited for over 45-minutes. It never came...

Just okay. Only worth going to due to the restaurant's location right off the river. There is a lot of outdoor seating with a great view. The food is mediocre.

Gave them a call and asked if they could accommodate a party of 18 people and was told yes so we decided to give this place a try let me say the waiting staff was great but the food is seriously lacking to say the least. We ordered five steaks medium rare only one steak came medium the other four came half medium and half rare and completely flavorless ???? so i asked the waiter how in the world could you accomplish this if the steaks were on the grill all the way his response was i have no idea sir and took the steak and promised he would have 3 more fired up immediately per our original order. They should up in an average amount of time which we were happy with but the the steaks again were not what we ordered they were all cooked well and flavorless again and since we were pressed for time by now cause the kids wanted to go see the Christmas show i complained to the waited and told him at this point we have choice but eat what we were severed cause would like to make the 7:45 show and requested the check upon getting the check the waiter did tell me he took of 2 of the steaks for our trouble and me being in a rush i promptly paid the bill but to my surprise a $490.39 bill so i asked and come to find out that these steaks that were on the steak special menu and were suppose to be a 14oz ribeyes "some of the thinnest ribeyes i have ever seen lees than a half in thick" are $32.00 per plate ouch hell i have had better steaks at an IHOP. Well after the show i check my receipt to find out that we also paid $39.00 for 12 soft drinks?? really?? that comes to $3.25 a soft drink. My fault on that one for not taking the time to check the receipt before we left so all in all this place is over priced for a place that uses plastic glass ware and has no clue on how to cook a streak properly especially at $32.00 a plate for a ribeye i mean Cattlemens had better cuts for less money and those cuts are cooked per your request me and my family will never be back there at any point.

Rio City Cafe hasn't shared anything with you.

People are more likely to share with you if you add them to your circles.

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!
