My husband and I went here while he was in Sacramento on business. It was St. Patrick’s day and we did not have reservations so we were skeptical that we would even get a table. When we arrived they said sure they had a spot...More

We went for my companies Christmas party (in January.). The food was good and the atmosphere was nice. Personally, I'm not a foodie so while the food was good,I didn't find anything too be spectacularly great. Others in the party really liked it.

I eat often, with a group or alone, service is always great. When they serve maybe the best halibut I have ever had. Pasta is wonderful, try the carbonara. Wine of the month is a always a good buy.

Counting consistency, this is hands down the best restaurant in Sacramento. The most pleasant dining space in town, every table quiet for private conversation, relaxing, bright, engaging. After more than two decades, I have never once experienced less than excellent service from the waiting staff....More

They have valet parking - you just drive to the front door and they take your car. Very efficient- we have never waited more than 5 minutes for our car as we leave Biba's. Hope this helps, Gail
