Had a marvelous dinner with old friends. Food, winelist and the crew are great! Will for sure come back.

Amazing Food & Service
We had such a great time at RN74. Was our first time at the restaurant and couldn't ask for a better experience. The ambiance was quite lovely... quiet given it isn't a tiny establishment. The service was hands down what sealed the deal for me. We had a very attentive staff who, even though busy, never missed a beat. Somalier when we needed help with the extensive wine list, fresh water, plates cleared ect... all what you'd expect of such great place. Most impressive was that the table next to us include a rude, loud jerks who complained (less than 5 min after being seated) that they were being "ignored". The GM spent the rest of the evening personally serving them and 30 min later... those same customers were complementing the service!

Food so good!
I've gone to RN74 several times and alwasy try different items on the menu. Everything is to die for and the service staff is attentive, professional and knowledgeable.

The food was incredible. Best tasting dishes I've had in years. Portions were perfect.

Very nice place for lunch!
Very nice place for lunch! The burger with fries was well-prepared with cheddar, greens and wonderful fries and the lovely bun stood up to its juiciness. As good as it was, it was a notch below the Marlow burger. For dessert, I had the Chibouste which was consisted of raspberry-flavored pastry cream on a disc of some type of cake and topped with a lacy cookie. Very refreshing! As busy as it was, the service was good -- very professional.

Great dining experience
We took our daughter here to celebrate a special occasion, and had a great experience.
Our server, Kelly, was attentive and knowledgeable. David, the sommelier, helped us
choose from the voluminous wine list. We also loved the decor. We each ordered a different
main dish, and each was delicious.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
My first time at RN 74 which I went to after it being recommended by a friend, could not have been better. We had drinks in the bar before dinner and the bar was full of people and fun. The food was awesome and the waiter was perfect. My friend and I had conversation easily during the meal and the noise level was not a problems. I will be going back often!

Great Wine List
With more than a thousand wines to choose from, dinner at RN74 is a pleasure for any oenophile. However ~80% of their bottles are priced beyond reason for most meals. Last bottles of any selection are listed on a train station board that updates constantly. On our last visit, our table had fun choosing from the board and our food ranged from very good to perfect - the flat iron steak frites achieving perfection on a plate. With good service and great food and wine, RN74 provides a fantastic experience except for one thing - the price. Dinner is Brasserie perfection with prices approaching Haute Cuisine. Sigh.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were beginning to wonder where all of the great restaurants have gone. We stumbled across RN74 online and made a reservation. Our server, Kelly, was extremely knowledgeable of the entire menu and wines. Impeccable service, beautiful ambiance, relaxed atmosphere.
Duck Wings A L'Orange which were very flavorful.
Sweet Corn & Mascarpone Agnolotti, this was an exceptional dish, I was wishing it was an entree!
Little Gem Lettuce and Grilled Peaches, another excellent choice.
Polenta Crusted Diver Scallops, we loved this one.
Schmitz Ranch Filet which is served with a Bernaise Sauce made from tofu
Hazelnut Torte, a chocoholics dream
Asst. GM, Thomas as very attentive and extremely helpful. We will definitely return.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great spot with an amazing wine by the glass list. Fantastic
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very fun train theme
Wait staff very professional always have recomendation. Food is outstanding
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
We dined here during a happy hour promotion. The food was fabulous and the service was outstanding. If we find ourselves in the area again we will most definitely return.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ask the staff
The service staff work as a team and know the menu and wine list.
If you choose to consult them they will guide selections to the best options in food and wine pairing. The value is in the glass and on the plate in my opinion. Lovely for a special dinner...
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a fabulous dinner.... So special! Other high end restaurants don't even compare. Everything was perfect... Sardines, cod, tuna.. There's nothing more to say than "yum".
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Le Train Bleu in SF
Fantastic restaurant. The ambiance is very cool, like being at Le Train Bleu in Paris, or Gare de Lyon. Great wine list. Wonderful food, delicious Coq au Vin, and Confit de Canard. We shared the fondue as a starter, classically good. I highly recommend this restaurant.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food and service. Amazing environ. Friendly staff!!
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
I went to two Michael Mina restaurants while in San Francisco and RN74 was by far the best experience. The service was amazing and the food was outstanding. While not the least expensive place, the experience was worth the cost. This is definitely a place to bring a client. It is not stuffy and is sure to impress.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Extensive wine list, although
Extensive wine list, although mostly quite expensive, however the sommelier was helpful in suggesting
a wine which we liked but we could also afford. Nice bar and a lively crowd.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
very good, but not great
In from out of town on vacation. We had heard about RN74 from friends and thought we'd check it out. Only tables available for same-day were at 5:30pm. No big deal since we had been walking all over SFO and were hungry. Bar was very busy with apre-office folks. Definitely a younger crowd's hang-out. Service was very good and each course was also very good. Wine list excellent, except for the by-the-glass choices from the bar. Those were not so great. I'd rate everything very good and would probably go back.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
anothed great meal
I eat at RN74 for.lunch often, but this was my first dinner and it was incredible!
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food, the wine, the atmosphere - RN74 is a short menu with a long list of praises.
10/21/2013 5:00:00 PM
Awesome dinner, server rocked
We had an great dinner, a group of 4 of us plus one additional who just came for drinks. All of the food was awesome and our waiter recommend excellent wines. The fish was really good and fresh, portions are small but filling. The steak tartar and cheese plate were yummy. I like that they had a grass fed option. I would prefer that they did not serve veal, I usually won't go to places that serve veal but didn't realize they had it on the menu. The hazelnut dessert was my favorite. Small portion again but all I needed. Overall, it has great decor, modern and kind of rustic. It was a mix of casual and dressy, not super busy past 9pm but it was a Tuesday night.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect night without the kids and long over due date night.
All staff made our night special, the chef was great. My wife felt like a judge on Top chef and gave 5 stars
to every dish.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
everyone was great - got us in and out quickly which is what I needed.

The food is spectacular, the service is fantastic, and the wine list is unbelievable.

Great food, great wines, great
Great food, great wines, great ambiance and great service. Had the roasted chicken and it was incredibly moist and full of flavor. The papardelle had a light feel with a delicious sauce. I love the decor of this place as well- the train station sign for the wine list is really unique! Was a great last date before our first baby arrives, thank you! Looking forward to coming back.

As good as we hoped...RN74
We wanted a very good restaurant walking distance from the hotel. RN74 was much more. Great food, wonderful service, a lovely place.

Fiance and I are Michael Mina
Fiance and I are Michael Mina fans and decided to try RN74 for a birthday dinner. We had a great time. Food was very good in typical Michael Mina fashion, and service was outstanding. Valet stand conveniently located right in front of the restaurant, which I would use as parking is very hard to find (San Francisco...). Had a great time overall and very nice dining experience.
11/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great ambience, beautiful decoration, great food and service.
Kind of expensive, but worth it
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Took a group of business associates to dinner this week and the food was outstanding. Great variety, even for the less sophisticated palate. Nice wine selections by bottle and glass. Vibrant after hours scene and eclectic decor.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
STYILISH AND COURTEOUS!!!
DINED HERE ON FRIDAY NIGHT AND PLACE WAS LIVELY BUSY, DOOR STAFF VERY ACCOMODATING AND BARTENDER LEO VERY FRIENDLY AND PROFESSIONAL. GREAT BAR EXPERIENCE WITH AWESOME PEOPLE SURROUNDING!!
DINING EXPERIENCE WAS SOME OF THE BEST I EVER HAD, FROM BEGINNING TO END.
STAYED IN SFO FOR FOUR NIGHTS AND ATE @ TWO OF THE MICHEAL MINA'S GROUP VENUES : OUTSTANDING BOTH !!!
I DID REQUEST A ROUND TABLE AND I GOT IT.... BUT I THINK NEXT TIME I'LL STICK WITH A RECTANGULAR.... TOO SMALL FOR 4 OF US.
STAFF IS AMAZING, KNOWLEDGEABLE AND PROMPT. LOVED IT ALL THE WAY!! THANKS
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Amazing! First time at this
Amazing! First time at this restaurant and it won't be the last time! We started off with a bottle of Campagnes 2011 Languedoc. Excellent recommendation by the sommelier. For appetizers, we tried the Fort Bragg Sea urchin served in the shell, delicious!! The Kanpachi with truffles was also excellent! We ordered the Black Cod. This was not your typical Black Cod with miso; it was unique, fresh and better.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food and service was excellent at RN74. They were very good at answering any questions we had and also explaining each dish.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Outstanding food and decor
Had an amazing experience at RN74. Love every aspect of this restaurant, including the menu design, the filament lighting, the airport flip-board style wine list and the food. We had the moules frites, which was SO GOOD. Every bite of the cod was amazing.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Not as good as expected
We expect a lot from Mina restaurants. This one fell a little short. All 3 courses of food were GREAT. The octopus was exceptional! However, when it came to the wine, we were a let down, which is unfortunate since this is a wine bar. We asked for sommelier assistance as we usually do and he recommended a bottle. I liked the wine, my wife did not. The somm never returned to check up on us and our server was conspicuously absent as well. We finally got my wife a glass of wine she would enjoy from a different server.
The tables are very close together and the place is loud. I could actually hear the people at the table next to me better than I could hear my wife across from me. Don't come here if you are looking for a quiet night out.

Where one brings people to impress
This is a place we're now bringing out of town visitors to impress. It's swanky but not too stuffy that you can still wear dressy jeans. Food's excellent and service had perfect balance of friendliness and right amount of formality befitting a fancy restaurant. I docked a star because they forgot our host's order of cofee and the guest of honor's order of dessert. but otherwise, no complaints and will come back!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
RN74 is fabulous! This is our third anniversary in a row celebrating at RN74. The manager, whose name I am forgetting (Brian?) remembered us and was very engaging and warm. The food is, of course amazing. The chicken liver pate was AMAZING: delicious, creamy, rich. My husband's flat iron was prepared perfectly and melted in my mouth.
The wine list is brilliant. The selection is careful crafted, and I LOVE that the more premium selections come in a half glass option: I like to sample more without imbibing more.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great spot for business lunch,
Great spot for business lunch, although you do have to put up with a lot of noise. Ideal for 3 diners if you can get a booth. Staff is really good, very helpful - even though they are run a bit ragged at busiest times. Food is interesting and tasty. Try the mushroom tempura appetizer for a real (and undoubtedly caloric) treat.
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
A great find
Good was very good, wait staff was quick and attentive. However a bit noisy.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent service and great food
The Arctic Char was excellent and the crispy brussels sprouts were exceptional. The wines by the glass list was a pleasant group of offerings. Our server was warm, knowledgeable, and efficient without being intrusive. An all around great dining experience and I look forward to dining at RN 74 again.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Just as great the second time!
Had our second dining experience on Saturday with consistently great food, wine and ambiance. Friends that we treated where thrilled.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Go for dinner!!
I have been here maybe 20 times for lunch, but the other night I took my wife for dinner. It was fantastic. We let the waiter choose for us and all of his selections were top-notch. Everything tasted wonderful. The kale salad was shockingly good.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
delicious but pricey
This is a foodie destination for sure, with specialties like duck fat and honey coated brussel sprouts, warm french crullers with coffee rum sauce, salads with abalone, a liberal use of truffles, etc. The service was professional, and seamless. If there was any drawback, it was the price for some of the items like coffee $10 for two, and other non-alcoholic beverages. But, that wouldn't stop me from going back!
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Thanksgiving Dinner 2013
Price fixed dinner for Thanksgiving. The food was very good and the service was excellent. The physical restaurant is beautiful and my "foodie" family enjoyed our dinner very much. The only downside would be that the wines suggested and served were pricey. I look forward to returning.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Went for our anniversary and ordered the tasting menu. Every course was amazing! Our server was knowledgeable and attentive. Can't wait to go back!
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
High End, Interesting Menu, Good Everyday wine list. Excellent Premium wine list. Certainly worthy of the San Francisco Dining experience. A must if you are in town for more than a week.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Both lunch & dinner very good. Seasonal menu with something for everyone.
Great service too
12/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food but take too long to order drinks from the bar, and waitted forever to be seated even with a reservation. Otherwise services and food are good.
