We had a delicious Mother’s Day Brunch! The food was superb and the service excellent. I also really like the ambiance. It was my first time there and I will definitely go back - and bring friends with me!
I should also note that the brunch was $29 per person, whereas the other places I considered were at least $15-30 more. So it was a great deal on top of everything else

Very overpriced for what they offered. Quiche, potatoes, bacon, fruit and pastries for $30/pp. Drinks not included. We really enjoy Taylor’s Kitchen but this was not a great experience. Very disappointed.

Food is always spot on. Foie Gras was sublime, and our waiter/sommelier was very knowledgeable about wine. It is one of Sacramento's best kept secrets. Taylor's is intimate, comfortable and unpretentious. And above all the food is superb.

We and our next door neighbors have been wanting to try Taylor's Kitchen for quite some time; we weren't disappointed. The food was exquisite--something for everyone on the menu and all delicious.

The service was impeccable--knowledgeable, enthusiastic about the food and yet quietly low key. Both the waiter and his assistant were very warm and friendly.

Reservations were easy too through Open Table. Everything was fabulous.

This was my first time here and I’d recommend it. Service was excellent. The food was quite good. I had three appetizers and dessert. I had soup, fried gnocchi and a strawberry salad. All were solid.

As usual, Taylor's Kitchen was a very good experience. We would return more frequently if the menu had vegan or at least vegetarian options for entree.

Generally very interesting menu, and a wide variety of options. I was disappointed with my $29 entrée, halibut, on this visit. Also we had a significant service issue as our waiter made multiple errors on the final bills presented ( which made us late for the play we were scheduled to attend)-- though the service was otherwise very good...thus the three-star overall rating. I should note that we've had multiple dinners here in the past which have been excellent, so I would continue to recommend the restaurant.

Love this place. Food is great. Service is friendly and attentive. Staff is welcoming and the vibe is
neighborly. The menu often changes and there is a daily special that is always worth considering. Today it was a halibut dish that was delicious. The wine list is not extensive but
it is unique and well-planned. We'll be back soon.

From the time we entered the restaurant until the time we left everything about the experience was terrific. All have of us even with different entrees had nothing but good things to say about their dinners. This was a birthday treat for 2 people and everyone enjoyed a great evening. Our server was attentive which added to our experience.

Four of us in party. Started with gnocchi and a couple of salads. Had Pork Chop, Chicken dish, Veal chop and cioppino as main course . Food was ok not spectacular. Pork Chop was kinda fatty. Chicken was good. Best dish was the veal chop.

Wine list is unreasonably expensive. Ordered reasonably price bottle of wine. $38.00. It was horrible. They would not let us return it. "you bought it drink it"!!!

Ordered a salad to share. Asked that salad not be split and with dressing on the side. Waiter brought two salads with dressing on them. Waiter obviously did not pay attention to our order.

Experience was ok but would not return because of the poor service.

Dinner was quite pleasant. We were greeted and seated promptly. The noise level was well above a buzz and voices had to raised some to converse.
Salads were tasty and interesting without being inventive. They were fresh and very pleasant.
Lamb was delicious. The meat was wonderfully seasoned and fell off the bone. It was tender with a crisp edge. Its fixings were well balanced and left the lamb as the star of the dish.
Wine choices were adequate and we ended up with a tasty Bordeaux style blend.
Throughout the dinner, service was prompt and attentive without being intrusive.
Would definitely return

I took my boy friend here for his 30th birthday. It was both our first time dining here. I thought the food is good but we weren't super impressed. I was aware of the price from the start but if I were to spend that much again I would probably go to a similar place I haven't tried before. Service was excellent.

Great service and ambiance. Food was nothing special. I ordered the special which was braised lamb. It was dry and stringy. I was there late and ordered late. But for the price I expect excellent food no matter the time. It was far from excellent. I don't think I'll be coming back.
