It was a delicious turkey dinner! Our third Thanksgiving there and this was probably the finest! The wait person made a couple of mistakes but he was very pleasant so it was a non issue!

Ruth’s Chris Steak House was excellent for our Thanksgiving meal! The service was exemplary: cordial, well paced, and professional. Reggie, our server was outstanding. Everything from the drinks and appetizers to the main courses and dessert were tasty, well prepared and appropriately hot or cold. While not an everyday dining spot for us we will eagerly return for special occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, etc.

We are a small family of 3 and didn’t want the mess and fuss of cooking and cleaning up for Thanksgiving. We were so happy to find the Firehouse-an iconic longtime Sacramento restaurant was open for Thanksgiving. We had gone once before pre-COVID. The meal choices were excellent. Fixed price with an entree choice of traditional turkey plate, filet, fish and pumpkin ravioli. Two of us enjoyed the turkey plate with sliced breast meat (although we prefer dark meat), gravy stuffing, green beans, mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce. The third person had filet mignon cooked nice and rare and very tender and tasty. Firehouse is known for wine list and this day was no exception. I savored the champagne flight-all three were really champagne. The brut rosé champagne was the star. I would have preferred a more traditional apple pie for dessert but the apple mousse was tasty. The crowd was eclectic and diverse and the restaurant was busy but the service kept up and it didn’t see crowded. Well done Firehouse.

There were 3 of us; two of us ordered the fried chicken and one ordered the salmon. Both dishes were delicious. We ordered 3 side dishes - the roasted cauliflower; the brussels sprouts and delicato squash with bacon jam and the au gratin potatoes. All 3 dishes were delicious.

Canon has been a favorite of ours since they opened. Though the number of options can sometimes appear limited, the range of flavors is outstanding. Service can be a little slow when they are buy but it is worth spending your patience. House cocktails are always interesting and tasty. The ambience is nice but can be noisy at times. Overall, one of our favorite places in Sacramento.

The Gate at The Rancho Murieta Inn and Spa continues to be our go to restaurant while staying in Rancho Murieta. The food is prepared from fresh local produce, and the menu overall is innovative but still familiar. I had the salmon served over a bed of mixed grains recently and it was beautifully prepared and delicious. We will go back again soon.

We had a nice meal at Formaggio a couple of. of nights ago. The food is solid comfort food - mostly Italian with burgers and seafood. It’s not fancy but everything was cooked as ordered and tasted great. My pappardelle was terrific; DH enjoyed his chicken Parmesan even though the pasta was cooked a bit past al dente. They are clearly short on staff but the staff they had did yeoman’s’ work. Carlton seated us with a warning that it would take 10-20 minutes to place our food order. No worries; we had drinks and water to tide us over and we appreciated the heads up about the delay. Kathy, who had tables inside and out, was cheerful and made great menu recommendations. We also had breakfast and it, too, was very good. Roland seated and served us. He brought me a fresh pot of decaf (again he warned of a delay which was no big thing). It’s unlikely we will return only because we don’t go to Rancho Cordova often. But if we do, we will stop by.
