THE DISH FROM DINERS: “I had a Filet Oscar and it was perfect. Preparation was flawless, with a creamy Bernaise sauce that had giant lumps of crab.  Sauteed spinach and mushrooms sides were likewise perfectly prepared. The filet was perfect with a buttery interior. Service was attentive without hovering. High Steaks is the best steakhouse I have been to in the Sacramento area.  I can’t think of a single thing to fault.”
