    Loved the food but we thought our server had died or something. Didn’t see her for the longest time. Just sitting there with our dirty plates in front of us—waiting,waiting, waiting. Finally had to grab another server to get anything done!!!!!!!!!!!

    We have been to the Roseville location of Bennett's, but this was our first time at the Sacramento restaurant. While the ambience is very different, the food, service and quality were all what we have come to expect. We came to try out the brunch specials. with my wife having the lox plate with was heaping with salmon and cream cheese and other goodies. I opted for the steak and bacon tacos, which came with two overstuffed tacos filled with steak, bacon, salsa and greens. The only downside was not having more hot sauces available. While Cholula is ok, I was hoping for maybe 1 more spicier option for those who like a real bite to their bites. We capped it off with the chocolate cake served this time with cherries and cream, but still dense and very sweet. I also got an Espresso Martini which was frankly amazing. A top notch dessert cocktail, perfectly mixed. All in all, brunch was fantastic and Bennett's can be assured that we recommend the brunch highly and can't wait to return again.

    Bennett's just launched their Brunch & Bubbles and I had to try it! Definitely worth the experience and brunch was delicious. I ordered the egg Benedict and there were plenty of other options to select from. And of course a bottle of bubbles! Perfect brunch outing.

    We ordered Poke, the Cheeseburger and the Vietnamese Chicken Sandwich. The poke didn’t have anything crisp to eat with it and just poke alone is not enough. It didn’t have the desired flavors and textures. The cheeseburger had a nice char taste to it, but nothing special. We decided to splurge on desert and got the carrot cake. It was pretty on the outside, bud the inside was dry. Between 3 of us we didn’t even eat a 1/4 of it.

    This is a restaurant that I keep thinking "I must have ordered the wrong dish" both times I was there. We arrived during happy hour and I ordered a wedge salad and their shrimp and avocado mix with tortilla chips. Since I can't eat avocados, I just got the shrimp. I have had some amazing wedge salads in the past and I must say, this one was pretty poor. Flavorless at best. Even the few pieces of crumbled bacon had no flavor. And the dressing was a watery mess on the bottom of the plate. The shrimp probably needed the avocado to really stand out, but what I think a out most was how stale those tortilla chips were. I at about 3 bites and sent everything back. My friend ordered the salmon burger and said it was really good. Their fries smelled awesome! Very disappointing meal, but the service was wonderful!

    I have been reading a lot of good recipes on this place. Finally took my boots out for lunch yesterday and it did not disappoint! Bacon Mac and cheese had a lot of taste. Clam chowder has nice pieces of clams. My ahi poke has huge chunks of ahi and the cabbage slaw was light and delicious, loved that it also came with avocados and watermelon radish. My kids had rings and fried chicken and lasagna bolognese. Both were delicious. Place has a really nice ambience. We had great service. The only down side was the music in the bathroom was deafening. But you are not spending time there. Can’t wait to check out dinner there.
