Took friends from out of town to dinner at Taylors. They had a great Farm to Fork week menu that was very tasty and reasonably priced. Everyone really enjoyed their meals. We really like this neighborhood restaurant!

Food was superb with complex flavors. The staff was organized, personable and genuinely attentive - especially when a medical emergency occurred with another patron. Everyone acted professionally (and yes - there was a Doctor in the house!) and it resolved nicely. I did not expect to enjoy an excellent Cappuccino just the way I like it - smooth. We drove in from Winters and it was very much worth the drive. We're definitely going back. -mw

We'd moved away from Sacramento and had not eaten at Taylor's Kitchen in four years. The food was always good, but after our recent dining experience, we felt Taylor's has "taken it up a notch." We shared a delicious foie gras starter, which the Som suggested we pair with a sweet riesling--a super tasty salty/sweet combination. Then we split an excellent beet salad. For our entrees we ordered Dry Scallops which came with a creamed cauliflower curry sauce, and a pork chop with a red onion soubise (sauce). Attentive service. Big thumbs up for Taylor's Kitchen. Thanks for a great date night.

Taylor's has been one of our favorite local places to eat. Usually the service is excellent. I am said to report that this time, however, the server was not very attentive to our table. I think he usually runs the bar. Also, the food took a very long time to be prepared. The servings were small, except for the burger (which is fantastic and a bargain).

Taylor's was a very nice experience. The service was excellent (quick and attentive) and the food was nicely presented and delicious. The blue cheese gnocchi stood out as particularly yummy. Salads (bean salad and beet salad) were fresh and creative. Salmon was fantastic. Dessert (berry crisp) was very nice. Tad on the expensive side but worth it.

Had a great time. We both had the chicken dinner and enjoyed every bite. She started with a fresh tomato salad and I had the sweetbreads. Both were wonderful. A lovely bottle of wine, very attentive service, happy date. All went well.

The bread and Pasta Dave appetizer were fantastic. The service was excellent. It was a bit warm in the dining room - a sign on the front door indicated that their A/C couldn't keep up with the Sacramento heat wave that week.

I had heard about this restaurant due its reputation for using organic ingredients for it's food and overall reputation. I liked that it was in Land Park and not in the typical downtown/midtown Sacramento food scene. My ribeye was so tender you really did not need a steak knife to cut it!

The menu provided a wonderful assortment of choices. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Our server was helpful and very attentive. We chose Taylor's Kitchen because we wanted to give our daughter a wonderful dinner for her birthday. Thank you to everyone responsible for a delightful evening.

My husband and I have dined at Taylor's Kitchen many times since it opened and it gets better and better - although we did not think that was possible! This last Saturday we sat at our favorite spot at the wine bar, next to the wall, and enjoyed the elements of a "tasting menu" that Steve, our waitperson/ bartender, put together for us. Totally delicious! We really enjoy the ambiance and the interaction between staff and diners - we notice that many of the staff has been with the restaurant for years, as have many of the diners.
Typically we will each have appetizers, a salad choice, an entree and finish with a dessert but the tasting option, done by splitting several of the appetizers and an entree, was perfect for us this last visit. It was very hard, though, to pass on those dessert offerings -.
We are very fortunate to have Taylor's Kitchen as a dining option. It is well worth the half hour drive in from Yolo County.

Love, love, love. The food is always exceptional as are the wines. We were hoping to have the chefs tasting menu but it wasn't available the night we came, however, when chef heard our request, we were told we could choose five and they would make us a tasting menu with parings. To order! Who does that?!

My fiance and I made reservations to celebrate our engagement at Taylor's Kitchen. We live in Land Park but hadn't ever been to Taylor's and thought, what better time to try it! The food was absolutely amazing! I'm a vegetarian and they were able to make many of the dishes on the menu vegetarian and still make them delicious!

We went for Father's Day Brunch. There was nothing noted that it was going to be a limited Pre Fixe menu on their website or on Open Table that I noted. The Pre Fixe menu was terrible, I could have made better food at home. For $29.00 you got a small basket of pastries, an egg strata, bacon and the worst sausage I have ever eaten. The worst brunch I have ever had. All four of us said we would never go back.

We were planning to go out for sushi for father's day dinner but decided to try Taylor's Kitchen. So glad we did. Service and food were both top-notch and we all came away filled, satisfied and with at least one take-away meal of left overs.
Great as always
Taylors is always changing their menu just a bit, based upon what is in season. This visit we shared the squash soup which was excellent, with the little dab of bacon jam on top being out of this world. They were kind enough to split it into 2 bowls for us rather than just bringing two spoons. It was of course served with their to-die-for warm crusty bread. Afterward I had the bread salad, which had peaches, cucumbers, green beans, and incredible croutons- it was unique and fantastic. We both loved our entrees- big bone in steaks, perfectly done. The sides were amazing. The only disappointment was the shortcake part of the strawberry shortcake dessert- it had been made ahead and was still quite firm and cold, like it had just come from the freezer. The other parts of the dessert were great. We go to Taylors once or twice a month (even though we don't live in the neighborhood) just because it is so darn good, and this time was no exception.

Taylors continues to consistently provide exceptional quality food in a neighborhood location. Less than 10 minutes from midtown this overall quality of the food is worth the effort to get here p. We had the perfectly seared fois gras , kohlrabi gazpacho , and seared copper river salmon from Alaska..phenomenal meal that would be twice the price in SF or Seattle. Very good and varied wine list and reasonably priced. All in all a delightful culinary experience, very friendly and attentive service, and reasonably priced.
We eat at Taylor's Kitchen motivated by reviews in Open Table. We were not disappointed. Well the dinning experience would not be classified as "fine dining", the ambiance, staff and food were all very good. Taylor's Kitchen is a small, neighborhood restaurant offering a quiet and relaxed dining experience.

Celebrated our anniversary - sat at the counter so we could watch the chefs. Food was very good - I love Pasta Dave's pasta, so Taylor's makes me happy. Of course, I ate all of my pasta so I didn't have room for dessert.

Everything was ready upon our arrival with a party of 6. Service was very casual, but very professional and personable. The food was outstanding. We had a wonderful brunch. Very fresh fruit and it was all ripe and ready to be eaten. Detail was given to the preparation of the food and not to be taken lightly. It was a great meal.

We brought a friend who lived in Land Park almost 20 years ago. She couldn't believe that a restaurant like Taylors Kitchen existed outside of San Francisco. The food was imaginative and delicious. We are so lucky to live walking distance from this wonderful place!
Another Pleasant Experience
Taylor's Kitchen has been a well known local spot with consistent repeat business and loyal clientele for some time. There are reasons for this. The food continues to be executed exceptionally well and the dining experience is seamless given the detail oriented staff. This particular occasion was no different. Keith, the Manager is also the restaurant's Sommelier and was spot on with his recommendations given our menu choices. He was patient and did not hesitate to spend time with us, sharing his knowledge and suggestions. His passion for the restaurant and the wine program are evident. We decided to make it a true 4 course night and none of the dishes disappointed. The wine was of course fantastic. Its nice to see a restaurant with such a successful history continue to stick to its values while providing progressive options for its patrons that recognize changes in the way people think about food and fine dining. Well done.
