Loved the NM ambience. The garlic dish is great and the carne amazing. Even the house wine was great. Would definitely go back.

Not as good as we remember
Have dined here in past visits to Phoenix. This time was very noisy for dinner. Hard to have conversation even in booth. Food review was mixed, with carnitas tacos being very dry. Enchiladas were excellent. Margaritas were pricey and on the sweet side. Might try for lunch next time.

Suggest that the Pasta Heidi
Suggest that the Pasta Heidi is removed from the menu. Not that great. Other menu items were great. We liked it better when you could order off of both the Richardson's and Rokerj menus

Great New Mexican cuisine.
Great New Mexican cuisine. Tight quarters and very loud.

Richardson's was recommended by relatives who frequent this restaurant. We are from New Jersey and wanted an authentic New Mexican dinner. This restaurant did not disappoint! The food was great, portions slightly larger then necessary but overall a great dinner. The only downside is that they did not have kids size portions so I would recommend kids share a plate. I will return next time I am in the area!

Excellent food and great service
I've been going to Richardson's since before the original location burned down. Always a fantastic meal with great service. I never feel rushed... They time courses very well. Love the wait staff. Perfectly attentive without being overbearing. East coasters will especially love this restaurant. In the new Richardson's, I feel like it's ambience isn't the same. Still great but I can't put my finger on it. Still a great place.

V. Good fancy New Mex
I love NMMexican and have Eaten a lot in NM & at Los Dos Molinos in AZ. Richardsons took elements of New Mex and upscaled it. Green chile pork rellenos, red chile pork adovado were great and pretty authentic. Enchiladaswere rolled, not stacked with an egg as they should be, so I passed. Shrimp and Mexican sausage appetizers were great.
Service was relaxed but no problem. It's expensive (with tip, $200 for four, but that was with 5 beers and 3 margaritas). We didn't have the expensive, specialty entrees or mainly meat dishes, but judging by our food they'd be great. For more "real" NM Mexican food, I'd opt for Los Dos, but Richardsons is a welcome change. Great place for visitors who can handle the spice/heat. I'll go back.

Richardson's Second to None
Richardsons is my favorite restaurant in Phoenix. Food always great and service fast and friendly.
I have never met anyone who doesn't love the place!

Richardson's never disappoints
This is my first visit to the rebuilt restaurant, and it was fun to see that the inside is exactly like the old restaurant on Bethany (beautiful copper bar top, etc.). The noise level is not as high (which is a good thing). I love the patio area and look forward to the cooler weather to enjoy it. Service and food was great.

I had always heard about Richardson's, and finally got the chance to try it. The hostess, Kate, was warm and welcoming, and took time out of her busy night to tell me some history about the restaurant as it was my first time there. Service was excellent, and they are very accomodating with your preference of heat (good advice: get the chile sauces on the side and see which you prefer). Tasty and interesting combinations; if you've been to New Mexico, you will see some old favorites and some new twists, too. Enormous portions; this is the place to come with friends and share small plates so you can try a bit of everything. Great happy hour deals, too.

Always a winner
Richardson's is consistently good - the food, the service and the atmosphere. It is also a good value. It is my go-to place to take out-of-towners who visit the valley. It was the place people took me when I used to visit the valley before moving here.

Eaten here many times and always a solid performance from the kitchen. They do everything well and have a very diverse menu. I love taking people from out of town here as the food is unique and if they like spicy, this place knows spicy! But not pepper sauce spicy, slow cooked chiles spicy, among the best in town. You can never go wrong here.

Excellent food and atmosphere.
Went there for a Saturday lunch. Waiter did a superb job explaining the dishes on the menu. Very authentic New Mexican fare. A must visit for anyone who enjoys such food.

I can sum it up in three words
THE BEST FOOD

Great! (with one exception)
Our meal was fabulous and our server, Erich, was a real pro. We only wish they would turn up the lights. Richardson's lighting is ultra dim--like going into a cave with a candle. You can't read a menu without a flashlight nor can you see the food on your plate without a flashlight. This is a shame because the presentations of delicious food are beautiful. Passing the restaurant provided flashlight and cell phone lights around the table is how we navigated through the evening. When we asked about the lighting we were told that Mr. Richardson himself insists on the ultra dim lighting. We would respectfully ask him to reconsider and give the customers a better all around dining experience by turning up the lights a bit.

Excellent as Always
Richardsons is an old time favorite to which I continually return and will keep doing. It is a must stop when i am in that part of town.
