We were very impressed with the excellent food and service in this small restaurant tucked away in a neighborhood strip mall. The menu is very creative, and the wine list had very interesting choices. Our waitress was friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. I was happy to see foie gras on the menu and had to order it. But it meant missing... More

We often order appetizers or small plates. Tonight we did successfully again. Ahi Tartare was fresh and served cold with a wonderful light flavored sauce/dressing. Two Crab cakes were all bulk crab on a pleasantly tasty sauce. Seared Fois gras was perfectly cooked served on a potato puree surrounded by a magnificent Bordeaux reduction. The small plate pan-seared duck breast... More

You wouldn't normally expect to find a restaurant with a good wine list and upscale, elegantly prepared cuisine in a strip mall. So finding all these at the Ravenous Cafe was an absolutely delightful surprise. It's a small, cozy place so dinner reservations are highly recommended. We had the steamed mussels and escargot with portabella as starters, Sea Bass and... More

Really quite excellent. Based on the exceptional reviews we had seen, we went for dinner with friends. The reviews were absolutely correct. This is a special restaurant. We started with a cheese appetizer that was similar to a Caprese salad. Very tasty. In a new place, we often select appetizers. There, we did small plates. Small Plates is not really... More

This place is not to be missed. The chef, Roberto has an inspired menu featuring daily specials, as well as crowd-loved favorites. My favorite item on the menu is the grilled Haloumi appetizer. They toast tostinis with butter, then drizzle a balsamic reduction on it, then add arugula, sliced tomatoes and the heavenly sheep's milks cheese crisped on the grill... More

This is, in our opinion, one of the best restaurants in Sacramento. In fact, it is so good, we thought we had already reviewed it. In fact we just told the owner today that we had, but we now realize we apparently did not actually POST our previous review! The menu changes seasonally and even daily to take advantage of... More

I'm on the fence about talking about this place because I want to keep it a secret and only a place a few people know...but, I can't sit on how AMAZING this place is! We've eaten here many times, brunch, lunch and dinner. We've celebrated birthdays and the hubby and I have had a romantic evenings as well. Small, but... More

Located in an up Scale strip mall it is growing to be a real find in fine dining. I had the seared Chilean Sea Bass. My wife the coq au vin with a delicious salad. Both were excellent and well priced. Seating is not large but intimate. Varied menu with three specials tonight. Reservations good idea on weekends.

Prompt and attentive service in this tiny restaurant with interesting daily specials. Wine was served quickly, even though our group members arrived one at a time. The salads were delicious, and the choices for small plates were interesting. An enjoyable evening was had by all.

Ravenous was an excellent experience for myself and for my friend. We went for lunch and the place was, sadly, almost empty. I don't think too many people know about this place, hidden away in a strip mall in the Pocket area of Sacto. Great service, wonderful food, highly recommended.
