Dishing the news about the Sacramento area food scene

Can a restaurant's acoustics impact the way you feel about your meal?

I recently posed the question on Twitter: How important is it to you that a restaurant has manageable acoustics?

This is an ongoing issue at plenty of restaurants I visit, and I get periodic emails about it. Many restaurant critics, including yours truly, include some comment or rating of the noise level when writing a review.

Turns out, it’s a problem area for many, yet restaurants either aren’t responding or, given the cost, are unable to respond.
