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!

Bread was awesome. Service was friendly and helpful. Cocktail was really good. The dessert choices reflected summer freshness and creativity though we didn’t find them particularly inviting. It was my husband’s birthday and he was generously offered a minty ice cream with chocolate and wafers. The mint was overpowering. I liked the sauce in my pasta with basil and cherry tomatoes but the bucatini was tough to chew on. I was tempted to send it back but we had waited a while for the food and I was hungry so I didn’t return it.

The food was very okay, the salmon roe tartar and the pastas really shined... but we never really knew who our server was. There were multiple people taking orders and bringing us dishes/drinks. Due to the fact that there were several people stopping by our table the menu got discussed twice, a wrong drink was brought to our table and they included an unordered won ton from the $/pp. The experience came off as ill prepared instead of strong teamwork. The music was also something to be desired.

We went here for my birthday. We indicated such in our reservation. No cake no candle no nothing. Another table seated near us did receive this however. Would not suggest that anyone come here for a special occasion as you will be disappointed. Food was mostly tasty but steak was extremely fatty and when we sent it back rather than replace it they trimmed the fat. I am capable of using a fork and knife and could have done that myself.

Worth every penny. We did the tasting menu with wine pairings. Our bill with tip was just over $500 and we had no complaints. The wooden benches aren’t the most comfortable but the food and service more than made up for it. Will happily go again.

One year ago I gave rich table an excellent review. This time around I wasn’t as impressed. We felt that most dishes were over spiced be it with salt or other spices. Also we were served onion rings and a tortilla that were cold and heavy with oil. The wonton bite had a very thick and gooey texture too. The porcini doughnuts that we’re one of are favorites last time had no mushroom favor. The rib eye itself was spectacular once the over abundance of chimichuro was removed. The wait staff here is excellent and as always they chose the perfect wine for our meal. Hopefully we caught an off night at the Rich Table.

My wife and I had high expectations for this dinner as the restaurant came highly recommend from a few locals. Overall we felt a little let down by the experience.

Three things that stood out were:

#1 both my wife and I ordered the tasting menu. Aside from the first course we had two entirely meal and wine experiences. Of course my wife was served a lot of fish and lighter fair. We were just taken a bit back by this being that there’s such an emphasis on equality in San Francisco.

#2 I left with a very sour taste in my mouth (pun not intended). A lot of the dishes I was served had very distinct sour flavor. The dishes weren’t bad, but all’s I wanted to do after dinner was go back to my hotel and brush my teeth!

#3 They have a small kitchen and overall a small restaurant. With that in mind you don’t have much consistency when food arrives. For some dishes it was back-to-back while others there was a 15-20 gap. Considering the entire dining experience was between 2.5-3 hours by the time we got our final course we were both too stuffed to eat any more!

With all of that said this is a highly rated restaurant that has received a Michelin Star! I would be remised to not give them a 2nd shot the next time we’re in San Francisco.

After several years of looking forward to seeing if the food could live up to the hype, I must say that it did. Very inventive dishes and cocktails and excellent service.

Yet, like seemingly everywhere these days, it was TOO LOUD. Simply impossible to hear my date seated 3' away. Perhaps time to invest in some well-placed sound attenuating curtains and maybe a rug or three?

But also disappointing is that I now am facing a dry cleaning bill in addition to the $200+ dinner tab. The open kitchen looks cool and everything but the venting system is woefully inadequate. I took one whiff of my shirt and sweater after I got home and nearly hurled from the stale deep fryer odors that linger in the air and which found their way onto and into my clothing. And we were seated about as far from the kitchen as possible.

So, if you enjoy great food, drinks and service and are about to send your entire outfit to the cleaners anyway, you will love Rich Table.

I made a reservation for rich table at 10 and firstly they were able to seat me 30 minutes early. I got there and was greeted by the very friendly hostess and had a little chit chat about the industry after giving them some beers for the kitchen... the food came incredibly fast and the portions were very large... the food had incredible flavor and depth to them and the waiters/runners were very knowledgeable and helpful in explaining every detail to the dish as well as helping pair a couple glasses of wine with our meal
... incredible experience and value definitely recommend going here to just about anyone

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.
