Biba offers a lovely, art strewn, sunny main room and a very comfortable lounge.Though parking is no fun, the restaurant itself boasts a space and charm that is fast disappearing from the "out-on-the-town" scene. Along with plenty of white hair, you may see the occasional...More

Biba was there as gracious and personable as ever. Nice place. Great service. Food was nothing special. Good but not enough better to justify price and 30 mile drive.

Biba is one of Sacramento's finest restaurants and has held that position for many years. The food is superb, the service is as good or better than you get at fine restaurants anywhere and the ambience is nice.

They have valet parking - you just drive to the front door and they take your car. Very efficient- we have never waited more than 5 minutes for our car as we leave Biba's. Hope this helps, Gail
