We booked a very large party here for a retirement celebration and i would never recommend this place for that size event. They have a "banquet room" in the basement and it is extremely dark and the way the room is set up it forced 1/3 of the guests to be very segregated and not a part of the group. the ambiance is terrible. the servers were very unhelpful and really didnt do much besides bring the food out and clear the plates. never asked how things were, or helped with drinks or the cake. lastly, they overcharged us for the food. We gave them an order ahead of time of who will be eating what and when a mistake occurred (before the food was served) and we tried to fix it they said too bad we will have to just pay for the extra (even though there was no extra). Never again!i almost forgot to mention. the food was terrible. The pasta they served us was watered down and had no flavor. all the guests that ordered the pasta didn't even eat it.
Kind of your typical sports bar. Great if you want to hang out and watch a game. It can get a little crazy on big game days with lots of people drin…
Don't let the one star review from 2007 scare you away. This is a smaller venue so if you don't luck out with seating right away, you may have to wait, but it is worth it. I prefer to sit outside on the patio - where it is nice an enclosed and great for a little people watching of all the beer goers that are visiting the beer garden next door. Their food is incredible. Anything on the dinner menu (I like the bahn mi), but breakfast is what I prefer (only there are too many options!). The breakfast tacos are enough to feed two, the lucy burger is perfectly topped with an egg and I prefer their breakfast pizza with jalapenos added. IF you ever get the urge, don't hesitate to go!
We went here for lunch today. LOTS of people waiting with a lot of empty tables, but we waited anyway. After we finally got seated the waitress came right over and gave us some coffee. Then we waited some more. She took our order and I'm sure it was at least half an hour before we got our 1/2 sandwich and bowl of soup. I looked in the rear seating area and it was almost empty. Still, there were people waiting. We were in the restaurant from 12:05 until 1:30! They must have been having employee problems. Food was delicious though.
Mulvaney's is a really high class resturant. My friend and I dined here over the past weekend and were really impressed by the food, wine selection, and service.The resturant was pretty busy which is probably why it took a little while for us to get our entrees once we placed our order. Our server was very attentive though and was very courteous.The wine pairing with our meals based on the server's recommendation was perfect.If you are looking for a nice evening out in downtown Sacramento, you can't go wrong with Mulvaney's!
I really tried to like this place, but with every new chance I gave it, something else would go horribly wrong. I'm a huge fan of service and their's leaves something to be desired. One night we waited over an hour for our food, without so much of an explanation, and they would never stop at our table for us even to order a drink during that time. The only thing I would go back for is their fried green tomatoes, but I can find those else where. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me. I won't be back.
This is a great dining experience, good food, good wine selection, a great atmosphere and great ambiance. You will find the food to be hearty, full of flavor and fully enjoyable. It is an dining experience you will want to go back for again and again. Friday Nights it's pack, with people who like to sing. Sacramento New & Review "Sammy Awards" also gave this place a great rating. I think you will also when you come out to eat or sing on Fridays.
Its possible you will have to wait, and depending on what day you may have to wait for a long time, but it is completely worth it. Its breakfast food, but pumped up several notches. The bananas foster French toast could be the single best breakfast I've ever eaten--you think it sounds heavy and sweet, but that toast is so crisp on the outside and cooked all the way through, the cream on top with the grilled bananas--so worth any wait.
Love the cheesesteaks here. I used to go here as a kid and they were my favorite. Now as an adult I still love this place. I've been to Philly and had real cheesesteaks that are amazing and this place can compete with some of the best places in Philly. The cheese fries are spectacular and my son loves them. Would highly recommend this place if your wanting a delicious cheesesteak that tastes like the real thing!
I have to say it...not impressed. I had been stalking their menu items and finally decided one Sunday that was the day to go to Taylor's Kitchen. We were 2 of maybe 10 people in there and waited almost an hour for our food (got the benedict). In addition, the service was horrible. It is going to take someone having a birthday and already having reservations for me to go back there.
I love the salads at Jack's. It's a "build-your-own" where you choose the greens and dressing and then you get to choose 6 additional items such as mushrooms, carrots, walnuts, garbanzos, etc. For non-vegetarians they have a really nice sandwich selection plus "plates" of tri-tip and turkey, for example. Parking can be difficult at lunch-time. The outdoor seating is very nice.
