What? You've never heard of The Kitchen? That's probably because they do little, if any, advertising. They don't have to; word of mouth has them booked weeks in advance. They have absolutely no outside signage, so one has no idea what's behind the simple building exterior. Trust me on this one, though, you can't judge this "book" by its cover. Although this restaurant will put a serious pinch on one's pocketbook, (with a half flight of wine shared between the two of us, our check was just over $400), and reservations are not something one can just get the day before, it's by far my favorite restaurant, if that's what one should call it, ever. It's really more of a food experience - kind of like eating art -- art that's prepared in front of you, and explained in great detail by master chefs. Ever wonder what it's like to eat at one of those fancy-schmanzy places shown on the Food Network, but without the snootiness? You'll need wonder no longer after spending an evening at the Kitchen. The extremely attentive staff goes out of their way to make each person feel special and "at home," despite the elegant environment and over-the-top fare. Why drive to the City to experience truly gourmet food? It's right here in Sacramento. I wish I could give this amazing place more than five stars; comparing it to any other restaurant is like comparing apples and diamonds. Yes, you'll pay for it, but you will NOT be disappointed.

We received many quotes from caterers recommended to us by friends. We finally got a quote we liked, and we went to a tasting. We weren't that happy with the food, so we continued the search. We found Hannibal’s catering & events on line, and it looked too good to be true. They were very affordable and were also able to provide the rentals of all of our tables, linens, glassware and utensils. We scheduled an appointment but had to reschedule on the day of due to an emergency. Phil was totally flexible and was able to move our appointment to later that day. We met for at least an hour to discuss what we wanted our day to be like. They are very professional, detail-oriented, accommodating and friendly to work with. We went to a tasting a couple weeks later and were sold. The food was delicious! I was skeptical that the food could actually be that good on the actual day after having to mass produce it. We were indeed so happy and grateful to this caterer because the food served on our wedding day was indeed perfect yummy and beautifully presented. Everyone of our guest we talked to after our wedding raved about the food. Great caterer! Highly recommended!
I've been to a lot of big catered events like fundraisers, galas and most of all weddings. Most of these events are usually lacking in food quality and flavor. Buffets usually has long lines and takes forever to get your food. However, to my surprise, this is not the case with all caterers, especially when it comes to Hannibal's Catering & Events. I recently attended a wedding and they're a surprise. Their food is AMAZING in both quality, freshness and is so yummy and beautifully presented. Most of all there is no waiting to get our food though it about 250 of us. To be honest, I've not like anything that they served on the buffet that night. The chicken skewers , the mini beef wellingtons and the Prime ribs were just so perfect delicious. The chocolate fondue with the strawberries and dark chocolate were scrumptious! The three servers at the wedding were very friendly, helpful and busy serving all of us. Great food and outstanding service is what I can only said of Hannibal's catering and Events.
