We dined here for our wedding anniversary. The service was impeccable. We were greeted with personalized menus and a complimentary prosecco. The restaurant had reached out to us in advance regarding food restrictions/allergies, and the server confirmed and clarified that information with us immediately. She then proceeded to assist us in making appropriate choices and changes to the menu based on that. We felt special throughout the meal. The only thing that was a little less than amazing was the tiny amuse-bouche had a rather dry and crumbly pastry base. Also, I had some fried calamari on top of a piece of toasted focaccia, neither of which was warm, so the texture was disappointing. Otherwise, the flavors of the food were delicious. The best thing I put in my mouth was the vegetarian fettuccini. I could eat that every day and never get bored. I would love to return and try new things next time.

Camden Spit & Larder, a modern London-inspired eatery, in Downtown Sacramento on Capitol Mall.

About the restaurant
Michelin Guide rated neighborhood restaurant with creative and shareable cuisine and a year-round patio.

"With a clear vision, a striking aesthetic and distinctive, mouthwatering flavors, Canon restaurant in East Sacramento is a stellar and welcome addition to the city’s dining scene." - 4-Stars, Sacramento Bee

"Find the convivial Canon sequestered away from the downtown bustle. This cool space that contrasts deep tones against bright whites is enveloped by the aromatic smell of smoke, so it’s no surprise that the house is packed most nights. Chef Brad Cecchi is the culinary mastermind and his menu is pivoted around playful small plates." - Michelin Guide

Canon is committed to a healthy and productive workplace. A 4% service fee is added to dine-in bills to help cover the cost of employee health and wellness benefits and to provide a kitchen equity stipend to our back-of-house staff.

Love this place. Vibes are immaculate. Food is excellent. Menu changes frequently and is always fun. Great for dates, dinner with friends, family- not super kid friendly though. Also, the wine selection is perfection.

About the restaurant
Located in downtown Sacramento, America's Farm to Fork Capital, Grange is a culinary expression of all things local, reflecting the authentic essence and soul of the community.

The menu showcases the market-driven bounties from the state and is best described as simple, seasonal and soulful. Organically raised meats and poultry are complemented with the freshest produce available from the Central Valley, while sustainable coastal seafood is paired with a spectacular all-California wine list. The entrees are presented in a straightforward American brasserie style. Lastly, enjoy the creations from our pastry chef such as rustic artisan breads and desserts.

This Sacramento restaurant’s setting is both classic and authentic. The two-story space combines architectural elements from the building’s rich history with exposed beams and concrete columns to create a surprising and urban, loft-like atmosphere.
