    Much better overall experience this visit! Would have been a 5 star, just need the greeter to be friendly and welcoming with a smile. Need to improve on the 1st impression. Waitress was awesome! Friendly, personable, and on top of everything. Probably had a few too many tables for a normal server, but she didn’t show it. Stopped and talked to us for a minute even though busy. Small hiccup on the food order but she fixed that quickly. Definitely be back for $1 kid Wednesday’s.

    We had a great time. Nice river view on the patio. Waitress was good as she was training. Back of house let us down as our food was ice cold we sent it back. It was hot when it came back out but...our steak was way over done - not like we had ordered it. We didn't send back again because the 1 of our party would be eating aline and we already had waited a while. After we ate we decided to order a dessert to share we were over charged- it was still good. Overall we will return just not real soon.

    Horrible! We waited 30 minutes to sit even though we had a reservation. The receptionist was rude, waitstaff over worked and people busing tables walked by us three times with empty hands while we tried to get their attention. I know we are all “trying to do our best” but not really sure this applies to everyone.

    We love Chevys. But service was poor. Waited 25 mins to get drinks ordered. Waited another 30 mins to get food order ordered. Chips were in small baskets. Drinks were watered down. Overall service was very poor.

    Food was good but the service was lacking. Our reservation for 4 people didn't get sat until 30 minutes after our reservation time. Once seated the wait staff took almost 10 minutes to take drink orders and the food came out for 2 people then almost 10 minutes for the remaining 2. I'm chalking it up to staffing issues/shortages. Overall while the service was a bit slow and there was a wait for our table it and the staff wasn't as attentive as they should have been the food was good.

    Cannot help but enjoy the outside patio! Server was attentive and overall he did a good job. Grilled fish tacos were rather blah. Chile Rellenos were a hit! Margaritas were disappointing as they were so light on tequila almost wondered if the bartender forgot to put any in! Would go back and try again!

    I have consistently had good experiences at this Chevy's. When it is busier, some minor things fall through the cracks (e.g., silverware, napkins) but overall the staff is friendly, and the food and drinks are always amazing.

    What’s the point of a reservation if you cancel our reservation when we get in there and we wait for two PLUS hours for a table, so we decided to sit at the bar , and then wait for a table and sit ourselves because the host is incompetent and didn’t know what she was doing. HOW IS THAT OKAY?

    Great atmosphere & food. Not sure why it took so long to get our food but it was a very long wait. There were 4 of us & we ordered 2 of the $39 3-course Summer meals for two. By the time our appetizers came we were pretty full from snacking on chips, salsa & guacamole. Then we had another really long wait for our entrees. It all worked out since we just boxed up our meals & ate the dessert.

    I came here for my birthday with my boyfriend and saw our waiter one time after being there almost 30 minutes. There was a lovely girl that helped us in the meantime I believe her name was Elise but she apologized for our waiter not being there and brought us our chips, water and food. All our waiter did was take our order after we waiting almost 30 minutes just for waters and chips. Since it’s my birthday usually you get the sombrero and a little cup of ice cream. I was only given a sombrero and asked the nice lady waiter about giving her a tip for at least serving us and she apologized about me not having my birthday ice cream and brought that out to me. I think my waiter was Jesse but he wasn’t a good waiter at all and the lady was amazing for not even having to wait on us.

    Server was very slow 20 more Minutes to bring water 15 minutes later to order and another 30 minutes to get food and Chyanne who brought us the food need to remember she is the service industry. Management could of handled situation much better and even though our food was comp’d the experience will always be the subject of conversation. Chevys has also been known for service but this is the second incident this week that I have heard about this location. It all stops at the top and it was a complete fail. I will NEVER enter another Chevys because of this location The worse part was that we were there to celebrate my Daughter’s 13th birthday. Now she has this image of Chevys

    Made reservations for 6:00. Had to wait only short while for a table outside. Server was friendly, but must have been really busy because we didn't eat until around 7:30. The food was good. I had the grilled fish tacos. The guac for $13 was way overpriced and didn't get us too far. Hadn't been there in a long time. It was okay. Probably won't go back.

    Service was bad. Our server took really long to greet us or even bring us waters. He said he did not see us. Then when we ordered our appetizers and food it took over an hour to get. And got the appetizer when the food came out. They forgot half the stuff we ordered. Then our friend showed up and he put his order in and they completely forgot his order half an hour later so by that point we just said cancel it. We didn’t get nothing comped or anything, nothing was offered. When the bill came they over charged us and took forever to close out. Worst experience, I wish they had better service because they are in such a cute location. This is why I don’t frequent this establishment because I forgot how horrible the service is, last time I was here was over 2 years ago and I forgot how bad it was until I come again.

    The service was horrible. His excuse was short staffed but it seemed we were the only ones that were being ignored. People who came in way after us were taken care of right away and left before us. I understand places being short staffed but not when everyone is getting taken care of.

    Didn’t get our drinks until well after food arrived. We ordered the patron skinny margarita “shaken and poured table side”. It was supposed to be fresh lime juice, agave and patron. It was none of these things. It was a mix and cheap tequila. We didn’t drink them past the first tiny sip. We didn’t say anything to the waitress because she was already flustered and obviously having a bad day. (She also didn’t ask about the full glasses that were still sitting on the table despite being ready to leave.)This is our 3rd time here and each time we swear we won’t be back. I’m not sure why we gave it another chance to do but it is definitely the last visit.

    I showed up at the time of my reservation. The hostess mentioned that they were running 15 minutes behind which was unfortunate, but still acceptable. We were seated outside with a view of the river. However, every time a boat went by, the noise level was loud enough that it became difficult to hold a conversation. Once we order food, the food came fairly quickly. The quality of the food was not what were used to. The steak fajitas were over cooked, the orders came out wrong, and a hair was found on one of the plates. We ended up sending the food back and half the party didn’t eat. They were clearly understaffed and it was disappointing to see that their quality has suffered because of it. This used to be such a fun place to go. But not so much anymore.

    After pointing out that our waiter who had just come on shift and covered in dirt, food, and nastiness we got an incredible waitress who made the trip worth our time Thank you Cheyenne! The food was lackluster at best. 121 dollars for 3 entrées and 3 drinks is ludicrous. I've been to some of the finer establishments in Sacramento and had incredible food and service for this price. Will I return? ABSOLUTELY NOT! There are far too many other places in Sacramento with better food and prices. Again Thank you Cheyenne for picking up the pieces.

    Have been caving Chevy’s margaritas, chips and combo plate. Had tamale, Chile relleno and taquitos. Everything was tasty except the sauce on the tamale was way too sweet. Atmosphere at Riverfront is nice with an obscured view of the river. Delicious Cadillac margarita. Would definitely go back.

    $1 kid Wednesday meals, so decided to give it a try. Did a reservation for 7pm. Checked in 7:03pm. Hostess said we’ll get a text. 15 mins later and after 2nd party sat before us, wife had to go up and advise we still don’t have a text. 5 mins later we were finally seated. No apologies or explanation. Waitress was extremely personable and friendly! Took our order and brought out kids food first (awesome)!! My meal was wrong, ate it anyways. Barbacoa taco was dry with only a very small amount of pico given. Other items were decent, nothing to rave about. Didn’t get a refill on water until about 3/4 way done with my meal. Wife enjoyed her meal and said it was delicious. Kids were happy, so I’m happy that the family was satisfied! Took about 10 minutes to get our check, which was wrong. I was in the service industry for a few years and it just seems like the customer service and going beyond has gone out the window. Not even a nice smiling greeting when arriving or leaving. Probably the current times we’re in and shortage of staff, but will only come back to this place to have apps/drinks on outside patio to enjoy the scenery.
