Broiler for a large party dinner in Sacramento
We went to the Broiler to do a celebration dinner in the Captain's Room, several out of towners converging on Sacramento. The Maitre' d was very accommodating - we had mentioned 16 adults/kids and preferred sitting together. They had suggested four separate small tables, which probably would have worked out better, but they put together a square table for us which was a tight squeeze but worked out. We got a few appetizers - the calamari and the lamb quesadilla. Calamari was fine, the lamb was good but definitely had a lot of lamb flavor. This was DineDowntown week so a number of the party got the specials, including me. I got the mushroom soup (good rendition, a tad high on the salt), the sturgeon (good presentation, slightly underdone but very meaty), and the creme brulee (thankfully a small portion after all the wine and the dessert we brought, could have been a bit more dense). My wife's ribeye was tasty although was medium, not medium rare.
I'm sure that they were really busy during the DineDowntown week (coincidental) but the staff were very helpful. Our preference is still Buckhorn Steak and Roadhouse in Winters but it is a drive to get out there. We thought for the price point, the Broiler was a good choice for Sacramento and a good location downtown. Parking was quite easy after hours, always a plus.
