Friendly and inviting with a low key feel and top notch execution. Locally sourced products. Our meals were innovative and delicious. Knowledgeable and attentive service. Nice wine list with reasonably priced interesting alternatives, not the same old-same old.

We've been eating Patrick Mulvaney's cooking for years, long before his Building and Loan. He's a talented caterer. His food is interesting, unusual, always fresh, and flavorful. He hires competent, knowledgeable servers who are always honest about the day's menu and know their wines. Dining at Mulvaney's is always a pleasure.

What a lovely romantic evening in MidTown Sacramento. A few months ago we had stumbled upon this place while enjoying some Gelato down the street. While we didn't stop in at the time I made sure to bookmark it for a future visit. Mulvaneys is an old banking and loan building converted into a fine dining restaurant. We requested to... More

We celebrated our son and daughter-in-laws 20th wedding anniversary plus wife's birthday. We dined in the Wine Room. It is quite impressive with attention to detail. Our server was very nice and attentive. The drinks were generous and dinner was 5 star. The owner visited us along with the bartender who were gracious and funny. I am giving this restaurant...

lovely bread & the butter had smoked salt on it (I don't like unsalted butter) which tasted like bacon (but it wasn't). Be prepared to pay A LOT for dinner. $12 for off brand brut & $15 for red wine! Portions could be a bit bigger for the cost IMO.

Four of us had dinner at Mulvaney's B&L last night and it was a gastronomical delight! We sat outside on the patio. We tried multiple starters and main course and desserts and every bite was absolutely yummy. The service was perfect. Our host, Patrick Mulvaney and his wife Bobbin we charming. Can't wait to go back.

Thank Janet D
