We went on a Wednesday evening, and it was not crowded, but judging by the crowds outside on the weekends, I would highly recommend making a reservation (you can do so from the ‘about page’ on Google maps).
Unfortunately, it was a bit too breezy when we went to properly enjoy the patio, but from what I could see through the windows, we want to go back when the weather is more favorable. I don’t think you can get better views at a restaurant in Sac, especially around sunset.
To our dining experience, it was about as good as one could ask for. The bartender was obviously a master of the craft, and brought out the best Old Fashioned that I’ve had in a great long time. The waiter was attentive without hovering. And, the staff in general was just naturally pleasant.
Food-wise, we’re both small eaters, and were glad we didn’t order an appetizer, since the portions were pretty much spot on, leaning towards the generous side. Her swordfish was cooked perfectly and the seasoning complemented, rather than hid, the fish. I had the jambalaya, and would definitely recommend it. Not as hot/spicy as one would find in the French Quarter, but seasoning-wise, pretty much spot on. Quality-wise, everything was also very fresh, and it showed.
Price-wise, I would put it at, or slightly below other top-shelf restaurants in the area, but with slightly better portions, and definitely a better view is the patio can come into play.
We’ll definitely be going back.
