Zinfandel Grille - Sacramento Ratings and Reviews

As always, the many entrees at our table were all visually appealing and well prepared. The ahi appetizer was declared "amazing". Crafted cocktails were very good. Everything was delicious and we even took a spin on the dance floor. Nice ambience for all occasions. Staff is very professional and unobtrusive.

Food is always good. Although I had the salmon entrée special for lunch, one of my favorites is the stacked crab and avocado salad. It does get a bit noisy at lunch, probably because there are so many people there. Still a great experience and we never feel like we're rushed to leave.

We came to Zinfandelle Grill to celebrate our 21st Anniversary. We've always been fond of ZG, and knew it would be a nice evening, and we were not let down. The drinks were yummy, food was delicious, the service was excellent, the band was great and dessert was sinful!
Our wait person was outstanding, making excellent recommendations when we had questions, she was a pleasure!
ZG is not exactly a quiet place, there is a fair amount of ambient noise, but it has a positive energy, so doesn't bother us. But fair warning if you are looking for quiet, romantic evening.
All in all, definitely top notch and remains a fave!

It is simple - consistently excellent food, well-mixed cocktails, polished service, a warm and comfortable atmosphere.
We have enjoyed many of the entrees, pork chops, salmon, filet mignon, yummy raviolis, and more. We are never disappointed. We also appreciate the well-trained support staff who have been with the grille for years who keep the pace of serving moving. Kudos!

The grilled swordfish was excellent. Perfectly done. I had the dinner salad with candied nuts and gorganzola cheese on top. Next time, larger plate please. My hubby had the butternut squash soup (yummy). Overall, enjoyed the dinning experience and will return.

First time going for a Birthday on a Sunday night, place was not too crowded and staff was very attentive. Food was good and had a mature crowd. I prefer that over loud trendy places. Prices were okay but I went home satisfied.

My husband and I had our date night at Zinfandel Grill this evening. I ordered the seafood special which was cod lightly dredged in flour and panko. The cod was so moist and flavorful. Instead of the mashed potatoes with carmelized leeks, I requested their perfectly cooked risotto along with asparagus. The husband had the 'Z' burger which was cooked throughly yet moist and delicious. Our server, Joseph, was attentive and personable. We are so happy that Zinfandel Grille is such a wonderful part of Sacramento's vibrant dining scene.

Food was decent but the overall experience felt tired. The interior is ok but didn't sparkle. The food prep was competent but not excellent. Pricing seemed a little high given the level of polish in the food presentation. We had a brand new waitress who was terrible but frankly she should have more oversight from management. We would try again but not go out of way to go there.

As always, Ise's calazone's are the BEST. Service is always efficient and friendly. The noise level is rather high, but the food makes up for any negatives.
With host staff sometimes just standing at the reception area, it wouldn't hurt if they took a few seconds to help handicap patrons by opening the door. It sometimes gets awkward holding the door and helping others. Most time, patrons are coming in and hold the door for us and are then given a big Thank You.

We dine at Zinfandel Grille regularly; however, this time we tried the rack of lamb and it was just a bit overdone (ordered medium rare). Also, I inquired whether the pasta special that evening (with shrimp and sausage) with the "pepper sauce" was spicy. I was assured that it was not; however, the sausage was too spicy for our tastes.

There were five of us celebrating a birthday. Two of us had the same entrée and got food poisoning. I called the restaurant to alert them to the fact and she said she would investigate and call back. No call back notice was made. The other three entrées were fine.

It was my adult daughter's birthday. We all ordered different dishes (Kobe steak, lamb, salmon, salmon salad, and scallops) and they were all great. We also ordered the 3 dessert special and drinks. We've been here before and we plan to go back soon.

I have dined here regularly for lunch but this was my time dining here for dinner. My wife has heard me describe it positively and wanted to give it a try, Overall the experience was quite good, we enjoyed the food and ambiance. The ovarall service was good, frequency could have been better. We definitely will go back !

Everything was as expected--food wise, I noticed a slight disconnect between our waiter and our server. I thought when our food was ready both of them should have been present when serving us. Our server was quick and pleasant but as he did not take the orders he didn't know to whom they were for. At the end of our experience a error was discovered after our check was finalized. Our waiter neglected to charge us for our drinks and had to recalculate our check after it was already signed. I thought this was odd.

Restaurant quality of food remains reliable. High five to chefs. Server was disappointing. Showed wrong wine, never refilled wine glasses, we had to ask for more coffee.minimal attention to service. Our bill was not cheap at 148.

The American Kobe beef was delicious and cooked to my liking. The special swordfish my wife ordered tasted fresh. The calamari was so so. I tasted more breading than calamari. Maybe order bigger squid but give people less. We felt like it was popcorn fried chicken. The service was outstanding. The buss boy kept my water full and our waitress was nice, helpful, and gave us perfect amount of attention.

We have dined at Zinfandel grill on numerous occasions. As usual, it was excellent, and is the reason we continue to patronize the restaurant. My wife had the scallops over risotto – one of her favorite dishes in the entire Sacramento area. I had the pasta special featuring spinach linguine with sautéed prawns in a white wine butter sauce. Both of our entrées were outstanding. Zinfandel Grille continues to be an exceptional value and worth the trip to Fair Oaks.

We have been to the Zinfadel Grille on more than one occasion. This time it was horrible! Poor service and the food was so-so. Very disappointed! We were going to get dessert but by the time we finally got our bill we were afraid we would be there another hour if we did. You may have lost a customer.

We have been enjoying the casual atmospher, interesting special selections, and typically attentive service at this local favorite for 5 years. This meal met all prior expectations except for the first time the service was inattentive and almost rude. New server that with whom we have had no prior contact. Only hope he improves his attitude.

Great food, fabulous service and good drinks! Waitress even stuffed two olives with bleu cheese for my martini! That's fabulous service! She also brought two salads, caprese and mushroom for the four of us and put the plates in the middle of the table; not on each end! To do that takes a little "moxey" and she gave us each a salad size plate to share. To say that we left her a large gratuity is an understatement!
