The tasting menu is the way to go - and it’s derived from the regular menu, so no surprises there. Great service from Joseph and the entire team. Chef Brandon paid us a visit and could not have been more charming and gracious for our having decided to dine there...which is pretty cool considering it’s an impossible reservation. One of the best meal experiences we’ve had in years, and we seek out great experiences. Would return over and over again (if we could ever get in again...)

Could have been great if not for the host rushing us out. He told us from the beginning that we would only be permitted to stay at the table until a certain time. I understand it is a busy place and tables are coveted, but where is the hospitality when we are told from the get-go that we are only welcome for a certain length of time? When is the last time anybody went to a restaurant, with a reservation, and the host said “Hold on, I need to evict the earlier diners from your table.” That never happens. And it shouldn’t. It just isn’t good hospitality. At the very least, the host could have been more respectful about the whole thing. Instead, he was curt and passive aggressive. And, in the rush to get us out, they screwed up the bill and mixed up our take-out boxes. Not a Michelin-Star worthy experience.

My wife and I recently went to Rich Table the night of our wedding to celebrate and could not have been more pleased with the experience. We were treated to a glass of champagne upon arrival and even got a menu from the night signed by the entire staff! None of this, by the way, should distract from how truly wonderful the food and associated drink pairings were. We both ordered the chef’s menu with drink pairings, which allowed us the full enjoyment of the menu. We recommend this experience to any and all, regardless of the celebration at hand, and look forward to our next chance to return ourselves!

As usual, the food was very good, with some special items from the visiting chef from Maison Manesse in Zurich. But the experience was a bit bumpy. The pacing of the meal was uneven with a very long wait for our main courses. And I really wish they would tame the noise level; it's very hard to have a conversation, even with just 3 of us.

I’ve been trying to get into this place for awhile, a little harder for me because I have a tight schedule, finally saw and opening at 9:45 p.m. on a Sunday and I took the chance. I’m so glad I did. We did the Chefs Pick. I cannot believe the amount of food we got, I think you get more than what you’re paying for. I love that they gave us both different items for each course so we had more to try. The place is small but I loved the experience. It was worth it.

Rich Table was quite good. The service was good, but we did feel a little rushed and had to flag down the waiter 2-3 times for drinks etc. Food was very good (Porcini Doughnut, Churros with Pate and the cod dish my friend had was good). The sweetbread app was good, but the Brussels sprouts were pretty tough--flavorful, but could have used 1-2 mins more--had a raw bite that I personally didn't think was appetizing. The Rib eye with french onion soup was huge and definitely not the tender ribeye I'm used to. Flavor was very good, but definitely not a tender cut--not necessarily something I could blame on them.

Vibrant little foodie restaurant in Hayes Valley. We loved the food and the service was superb. We were celebrating a birthday. The only downside was it was hot and noisy. The quality and creativity of the food does not match the toned-down casual atmosphere of the location. But overall a fun dining experience to be sure.

Despite securing our reservation with a credit card, we were not seated at a table because somehow they had us down for the wrong time. They apologized a lot but we had to eat our dinner at the bar. It was loud and my friend and I could barely hear each other. Our server was very haughty when we asked questions about the food. We left with the impression that they did not feel that we were as fashionable and cool as their other patrons.
Our food was adequate. The pork chop was a little tough and hard to cut. The beef pasta dish contained very little beef. The wine selection was good and we enjoyed ours.
Bottom line: won’t go there again due to the messed up reservation and lack of anything special to recommend the place.

We loved the smaller, intimate space. We chose the pre fixed menu for the 2 of us which was a sampling of a good portion of the menu and it did not disappoint! The staff was very friendly and made the effort to connect with us, even if they were just dropping off a cocktail. We will definitely be back when the seasonal menu changes to check out what’s new!

Best meal we’ve had in San Francisco! Good value, we were made to feel special for our anniversary which we hadn’t had with any other restaurant we visited. The food was outstanding - comfort food with an elegant twist we were bowled over. Great playlist and crowd in the restaurant, we couldn’t fault it. A must for anyone in Sam Francisco if you can get a table! My only regret is that I couldn’t eat any more! The whole menu sounded delicious, I’d actually like to go back and make my way through the whole thing!
