From the moment you enter this resturant you feel as if you're going to have great food. The restaurant is beautiful and has a special view of the Sacramento River. The LD lights hanging outside on the patio which is also very beautiful make the occasion even more special. It's as if you are looking at the stars and the... More

We have eaten at this restaurant a couple of times and have yet to have a good meal. The setting / view is very nice but the food hasn't measured up. My wife had a salmon special that was just ok and I had the $21 hamburger and the meat tasted off. It all looked great and the service was... More

A nice place for a higher price. The food is very good, so I do enjoy making this my special place. And if the weather permits, you can't beat the outdoor dining and fire pits, the view is fantastic! Sometimes the service can be slow slow slow, but typically it's fair. I still would recommend it.

If you want a great view and great decor inside and don't mind paying the price, this is a great place to go. If you want to eat, not so much. The menu is very short, the food was alright but the servings small. The prices were so high I thought I was eating in a French restaurant.

Food was good at a good price, but the views from of the river and Mt. Shasta from the patio were spectacular. I could have sat out on the patio all day.

We have been back three times since the menu/chef change two years ago. We love the view from the patio enough to occasionally come back, but the food is, at best, average. Please reconsider going back to what worked.

View 202 is right on the river and has beautiful scenery. The food is elegant and tastes wonderful. At night it's romantic and candle-lit. The price is a little high but the owner has done wonderful things. I would definitely call this a high-end restaurant in our little town.

The service is non existent, The menu says one thing the food is completely different. The manager is uninformed. But the view is amazing. Good wine list, great cocktails.

My girlfriends and I went for a birthday lunch and I so wanted the food to be good. I ordered the fish tacos and someone needs to tell the chef that tortillas can be soft or crisp, but they shouldn't be rubbery. The filling was mediocre as I couldn't taste the fish and the slaw was on the sweet side... More
