Don't want to go to Old Town but would like a romantic restaurant with very good to excellent food and a great Martini. Any help out there? And it's a Saturday night just to make your lives more difficult since I understand the center city pretty much clears out on the weekend.

  1. Waterboy fits all the requirements. Midtown does not clear out and is usually packed on Saturday night. See if they can make the Martini with Vya Vermouth - a real treat!

      Yes midtown is packed on saturday nights. Better make a reservation. Biba is another possibility, but I don't know if they make a good martini.

    2. If you are looking for a romantic place I would recommend Moxie on H St. Don't be deterred by the entrance, it's a hole in the wall. But the food is the best I've had in Sacramento, and it's small and quiet (aside from the boisterous owner/host). If you go, ask for the calamari, it's not on the menu.

      Biba is always a good option as well. I love Aioli, it has the best outdoor seating and feels very bohemian. Good food, too.
