Food was great, Smells were terrific.

The service, especially from Dana who gave pointed yet colorful recommendations, was the best part of the evening.

This was our first experience eating at Rich Table. Friends recommended the restaurant. I drive by the restaurant often and noticed it’s always crowded. I loved the food, the service was excellent, our server was attentive and gave us great menu recommendations for first time diners. I will definitely return soon. The only drawback is getting a reservation at the last minute. You need to plan ahead!!!

The food was very good. But the service was awful.

Because we had 7, we had to do a preset 13 course for $89 per. We were totally ok with that, and when the waitress asked us about food allergies, we told her about our pescatarian and our shellfish-allergic persons and the waitress asked great questions to follow up with them. However...FIVE of our 13 dishes came out with incorrect proportions (5-6 servings instead of 7). Each time we told the wait staff, and they looked perplexed and apologized and came back with 1-2 more servings. This process happened FIVE times. One of the alternate dishes served for our pescatarian was BONE MARROW pasta. Ummm, she doesn’t eat beef.

I guess this would be ok if we had just ordered from the regular menu, but we were paying almost $100 per person and 1-2 people were completely not served their food five times.

It’s too bad. The other three times I’ve been here it hasn’t been a problem. But those times did not have the set menu.

They automatically tagged on a 20% service charge. So we were locked into paying way more than we wanted to for the bad service.

Overall, a very frustrating restaurant experience.

Service was excellent but food was under par. Chef/Kitchen Staff tried too hard with too many flavor notes which resulted over crowding tastes to the simple food. Looks good in pictures but texture and taste both lacking in my opinion.

I found the tasting menu extremely underwhelming and wished I ordered off menu. I have a shellfish/fin fish allergy and only received vegetarian items outside of the main course of a very sad short rib. For a $500 meal for 2 I would expect a lot more!! Food was fine a lot of interesting items. My husband very much enjoyed the meal. I felt like I was being punished for having an allergy. The melon dessert was honestly disgusting and I had to spit it out. The wine pairing was meh I wished I would have just ordered a bottle to my tasting. The entire evening was a total miss for me.

Overpriced, the menu is all over the place with flavor is being a little too strong and the food was just OK. Not worth the $300 check for two people with only one beer.

We spent our two year anniversary at Rich Table and it didn't disappoint. I have a long list of allergies and my hubby and I were able to choose the tasting menu without any concern. The wine pairings were top notch and thoughtfully paired, while my husband's cocktail choices were stellar. We even had to order an off the menu sugary drink for a diabetic low, and my husband said it was the best drink non-alcoholic drink he'd ever had. Thanks RT, we'll be back to try the gluten free pasta a la carte!

Exceptional yet again. Rich Table continues to be our favorite restaurant in SF. Superior food that’s interesting & perfectly balanced. Whether going for the Chef’s Tasting (highly recommended) or ordering off the menu, there will be multiple dishes that surprise you & bring conversation to a halt so that all flavors can be experienced. It’s one of the few restaurants that actually deserve its higher price tag. Strongly recommend if you can get in!

It seems that in order to have a great meal, you need to order the right thing. I have never been to Rich table when the appetizers and entrees are the same as they were the last time, maybe once. The zucchini salad was great also the beef agnolotti and lobster roe linguini were outstanding. It is a restaurant that encourages you to step outside your comfort zone. Service was excellent. They know how to deliver a good meal.
