Rich Table Ratings and Reviews
A very loud place with very little charm. Some dishes are good like the chicken foie but some others are too salty or have nothing special. Very surprising it has a Michelin star!!
If you ask for the chef pick menu you will find it's not a tasting menu; the chef will serve each person of the table whatever he wishes. They make you wait eternally between courses and they charge as if it was luxurious. The place is vulgar and the food is not special at all. Shouldn't have a Michelin star!!!
Small, casual restaurant that has table and bar seating. January 2018 Tasting Menu of $95 pp with $75 pp wine pairing of six pours to match the number of six courses. Waitstaff is casual, friendly and knowledgeable describing each dish and each wine in detail. The Tasting Menu is available with full-table participation only and the restaurant will mix dishes on four of the six courses to allow for more tasting. First timer, so went the tasting route. Liked the small bites of chicarrones, dipping doughnut, liver mousse sesame macaroon, and bigger plates of cod and gnocchi. Desserts were all good. Uni Pasta was ok while we did not like the below-average meat course of Short Rib resembling Corned Beef. The meat was surprisingly dry and stringy requiring a lot of chewing. A casual Michelin starred restaurant. Expect to be cramped as tables are close together.
We’ve been to the restaurant a couple of times but this last time was different. We had the sea urchin pasta last year for my sisters birthday and it was delicious! During this outing, something was off and it didn’t taste as good as the last time. The rest of the meal was good.
Our waiter was ok; felt like he had no personality and was sarcastic to my mother in law. The experience could’ve been better...will have to rethink our next outing.
From their voicemail message, which says something to the effect of "let us take care of you," to their hip and friendly staff and outrageously creative and delicious tasting menu, I cannot recommend this restaurant enough. It's not cheap, but for our special occasion it couldn't have been better and I'm glad I finally got a table there!
Went on a Saturday night with 815pm reservations. We showed up a bit before and we're told they were running a bit behind. The woman running the front was apologetic, but not friendly whatsoever. At 830pm we went to inquire again and asked if it was going to be longer if we could leave and come back another time as it was getting late for us and she was snippy and said the table is coming up shortly. The head server came to apologize and he brought out a sampling of snacks that were amazing. The four of us had an amazing evening of food as we had chosen the chef's menu. Each plate that came out as delicious and what a great experience only marred a bit from our chilly dealings with the woman at the front, but not sure I"ll elect to go back at a busy time like a Saturday night again, food and other staff were nice! Kudos to the head server! You made the night!
The waitress was excellent- attentive, knowledgeable and present. Every dish was just as beautiful and creative as it was delicious! The ambiance was perfect and I highly recommend coming here for a special occasion/date night. The ONLY complaint I have is that the Cali Creamsicle desert is not good. The texture was very abrasive and the flavor was lacking. I would suggest either modifying that dessert or taking it off the menu completely since it took away from my overall experience.
Absolutely fantastic experience. We were skeptical upon walking in. The ambiance didn’t match what we expected of a Michelin Star place. But we were quickly proved wrong. The staff is on the top of their game and the food and experience really shows that. Pray that they have the off menu live scallop special when you go. It’s one of the best dishes we’ve ever eaten. The sole is unreal. The small bites were awesome and cheap. Dessert and the little amuse-bouches between dishes stand as amazing bites on their own. Our waitress was awesome but we probably had 4 or 5 people talk to us and/or bring us things and bus dishes. You can’t empty a plate or glass and set it down for more than 30 seconds without a staff member snatching it up. We went for our anniversary and we’re very happy with the choice. The light casual atmosphere and Misfits and Bowie on the radio was a nice change of pace from the typical stuffy Michelin Star joints. I think it really let’s you enjoy the food and worry less about the surroundings and distractions. These folks just got a Michelin Star and it’s very evident why.
Rich Table continues to be my favorite special occasion restaurant in San Francisco. Totally worth the weeks-ahead reservation. My family of four (including me) had a bottle of wine and two pastas, two mains, one appetizer and two small bites and were more than stuffed for less than $300 before tip. The time I went before was $244 including tip for a romantic dinner for two but we were hungrier that evening. I find the food to be incredibly high value for the craftsmanship and quality!
This is the best restaurant in San Francisco. Of all the restaurants in San Francisco, zero of them are better than this restaurant.
Sometimes, when I eat at other restaurants, I pretend I’m at Rich Table, until the food comes, then reality quickly sets in. Why you ask? Because that restaurant’s food is not the same as Rich Tables’.
In summation, this restaurant is the best restaurant in San Francisco.
I cannot compliment Rich Table enough! The ambiance is casual, but the food is seriously good! Having a meal here is a delight - from the efficient, knowledgeable and friendly service to the expertly prepared dishes! We shared 1 dish from each part of the menu - from the dried porcini doughnuts to the calicreamsicle dessert and every dish was outstanding. We dine at many outstanding restaurants in SFO and abroad and from our experience, the food and service at Rich Table can stand alongside restaurants with white table cloths and michelin stars. If you have not experienced Rich Table, it will become a favorite once you do.
This was an outstanding experience from beginning to end. We genuinely loved every bite. The dishes were creative and well executed and delicious, from the three amuse bouches through the rib eye main course, which was expertly prepared. This is a restaurant that’s at the top of its game, but was exceptionally welcoming. I felt valued and appreciated as a diner, and that’s not always the case when patronizing a nationally ranked place. Highly recommended.
