    The food (salmon & steak) was delicious, service was impeccable (thank you, Ivan!) & restaurant was clean. My salmon was just as good on Sunday at lunch as it was last night at dinner. My leftovers had been placed in a large clear plastic clam box which broke open as I was removing it from my fridge, falling to the floor and part of the food spilled on the floor (most of the food stayed inside which made a good lunch). Please consider not using this box for your customers—I think it might have been cracked or old & brittle.

    Zinfandel Grille - SacramentoResponded 7 days agoGwen, thank you for dining with us and leaving us the great feedback but I am very sorry to hear about the box breaking open! We'll definitely look into the boxes as that shouldn't ever happen.

    I know all restaurants are charging more but truthfully a piece of chicken and mashed potatoes is not worth $28! the ahi dish at $32 was on the high side as well. And no longer offering bread at no charge seems a tad tight as well. the food and drinks were good but dinner for two should not be $100!

    Zinfandel Grille - SacramentoResponded on November 24, 2022Hello. In order to continue to use high quality, fresh, local ingredients often sourced directly from local farms, we’ve had to make the difficult decision of increasing prices over the past two years. We did not want to sacrifice the integrity of our restaurant by purchasing lower quality ingredients to limit price increases. Our prices also reflect that everything we make in our restaurant, down to our stocks, pastas, and pizza dough is made from scratch and very labor intensive.

    Prix Fixe dinner for 2: Plenty of food. Steak was delicious. Kale salad was ok, but not great: kale was very chewy, really no bacon and chicken had no flavor. Pasta was delicious. Supposed to have a 2018 Pinot, but served a 2021 Pinot with lots of fairly lame excuses. Asked twice for low salt for entire dinner, but dinner was very salty, especially polenta and collard greens. Martini was excellent. Manhattan average and not made as requested. Wonderful acoustics: easy to hear. Comfortable seating. Waitress was very nice, with just the right mixture of attentiveness and allowing us our own conversation. Overall: An enjoyable dining experience!

    The dinner for two was outstanding. Salad was fresh, loaded with chicken, and a tasty dressing. The pasts dish was very good, best we have had dinning out. Steak and the sides included were just what we wanted and were very good. Our server was outstanding, professional and courteous. Will definitely return especially if they have another special, dinner for two, it was great.

    Couple of points: the menu is not accurate on the Mezzaluna - it is not cacio e pepe sauce, but much better. Please don’t use Italian words for non-dishes. And when did Zinfandel Grille go to fusion cooking style with oriental cuisine? Waiter - Don was excellent, btw

    I've said this before; the Grille used to be our favorite restaurant. Now the food is ok. My pizza was dry and untasty. Your service staff is stretched too thin and thus poor service. This may be the last time we eat at what used to be our go-to restaurant.

    Not one but two wine selections weren’t available…naturally, only the more expensive ones and very low end wines were in stock for both Chardonnay and Cabernet… really?? Plus the 3% up charge seems silly… just raise prices and don’t make up a reason for adding a random charge.

    A very small veal chop served with whipped sweet potatoes and the most unappealing, unappetizing, gross looking potato thing that was flat like a pancake and a disgusting shade of gray. The restaurant is just one step up from a fast-casual place with a bar, with food that is obviously premeasured and of poor quality. Really a terrible meal.

    Celebrated our anniversary. We haven’t been here for awhile and the menu changes seasonally. I had the chicken mustard for the first time and it was wonderful. My husband had the veal chop and it was also excellent. Cocktail drinks were very good and strong. I would highly suggest this restaurant for either a special occasion or dinner. Very nice servers and chefs prepared the entrees exceptionally.

    Pre-Covid this was my favorite restaurant. No more salmon specials on the menu and quality and taste of food have deteriorated significantly. Mustard chicken was burnt, and broccoli was hard as a rock. Unfortunately, I'm not likely to return.

    The food was good but not outstanding as it has been my experience before. The new menu is not as outstanding as your prior menu. The appetizers need some improvements. The salmon appetizer needs something else. The look of the dish is not too appealing. It looks like regurgitated salmon. Not trying to be mean. Just being honest. You just have to find a better way to display the food in a more appealing manner. Think about the presentation is all I am saying. I would pay a higher menu price than think that I am paying for your business operations in my bill because you elect to pay your employees more than minimum wage and pay for their medical benefits than you elect to pay them. These are your choices not mine. I will elect to pay the higher menu price because I want to eat at your establishment. These are just things to think about.

    The evening was delightful, a birthday celebration for one of my daughters. Our waitress was accomplished, knew both the food and the wine well, and guided us graciously. Even the busboy was quick and efficient, as well as good humored. The ambience of the Zinfandel Grille has always been cheerful, clubby, and friendly. It's one of our favorites for special occaions.

    My review would have been better except for one thing. During both this visit and the prior one, I ordered something that comes with aioli. On both occasions, I asked for it to be served on the side rather than on top of the entree. On both occasions, I was told that it would be no problem. And on both occasions, the server put my entree in front of me and the entree was served as described -- with the aioli on top. What happened to it being put on the side, as requested? It was supposed to be no problem. And since I'm not the sort of person who makes a fuss about something being served incorrectly, I didn't ask for my entree to be re-done. My partner had his food and I didn't want him to wait for me (which he'd do). Why can't this type of request be honored? It's simple and yet it was done incorrectly two times in a row.
