Pietros never disappoints! Our server, Kylie(?), made a last minute change to our order for my wife who’s pregnant, and we really appreciated it!

We started with a Margherita pizza as an appetizer. They offer a starter size that is good for two, but perfect for a party of four. Delicious! My wife loved her shellfish with risotto and I really enjoyed a tagliatelle pasta with ground pork. Diana was our server, and she was delightful and informative. She made us feel right at home. We'll be back to try some of the other dishes soon.

This was something of a special date to commemorate my new relationship with my girlfriend. We had a very attentive waitress who was very knowledgeable and friendly. She made us feel welcome. Our food from the appetizer to the soup and salad, to the main course were nothing short of phenomenal.

Prices are sky high--the 7-8 oz lobster tail is now a whopping $51 as opposed to approximately $30 last fall/winter. Since we happened to dine on a Thursday, we were able to take advantage of the 1 lb. whole lobster for $29.99. Service was outstanding and the food was delicious. However, because of the high prices, I may not frequent Rudy's as often as I would like.

Food was great. Variety of options for various food preferences. Beverage selection was large. Service was excellent. Ambience on patio is not terrific but it was our choice due to covid. I think it is one of only a few restaurants in downtown where I take Bay Area guests.

Lenny (our server) was amazing, memorized all our orders and noticed what we needed before we did. Food was impeccable, especially the escargots, crème brûlée, and lobster. Incredibly fresh and incredibly French - quite a treat for Arden Arcade. Definitely was our Plan A!

This place is nice. I like the water sculptures that serve to both separate areas and provide a little ambient noise for private conversations. I had the scallops which were pretty good, but not like amazing. The oil/basalmic for the bread was highly highly infused with something, maybe garlic. I liked it, but I could see some folks not. It's also a warning if you take a date there :-) The staff was very attentive, which is rare right now. They also did a little trick in the presentation, which was kind of cool. I would go again, but it's not cheap.

We had the Tomahawk Steak for 2. It was excellent! I’ve never ordered one before so I have nothing to compare it to. My only complaint would be that I made the reservation 2 months in advance and we were seated at a table right where people walk in.

The hostess was extremely rude. She rudely stated there were no more reservations and, there was no way we could make a reservation to eat tonight. I used open table and made a same day reservation. Thankfully the manager was very hospitable and friendly. He indeed honored our open table reservation and seated us. Our server was amazing. She helped us through the menu and made sure we ate our vegetables. Lol. She said that is the mom in her. The ambiance and music was surprising but very hip and cool. The noise level was very low. The food was absolutely delicious. With the exception of the hostess, I highly recommend this establishment.

This has to be the quintessential fine dining experience in Davis. Every single thing we tasted had layers of flavor, yet nothing ever tasted too strong or too weak. The balance of flavors in every single dish was astounding. To start we got Caesar salad and crab cakes. The salad was well dressed and fresh. The crab cakes were crisp and delicate with a delicious soy dipping sauce that I just wanted to drink! For our mains I got scallops over risotto while my partner got the pork loin and potato mash. This was my first time eating scallops: they were like softer, richer shrimp in flavor. Amazing. The risotto was sumptuous and it had amazing sweet corn kernals evenly mixed in it. My partner’s pork loin was the best pork I’ve ever tasted. Perfectly juicy, perfectly seasoned. For dessert I got croissant bread pudding, mind blowing. Buttery and sweet but not too sweet. I also must mention the kind, diligent service we received from every staff member we interacted with. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough.
