    Wonderful service, fabulous bartender, great atmosphere. The dish I had, pappardelle with meatballs, was dominated by a bacon flavor. The pasta and tomato sauce were lovely.

    Went for brunch. - The service was slow and inattentive. We ordered and received our drinks in a reasonable time then waited 25min before we saw our waiter again to order. Then waited an additional 30min for any food to arrive. - We ordered a crispy chicken sando served with waffles instead of a roll. The waffles was huge and came with a 1 chicken tender as the meat. Cost $18 - We also ordered the salmon cakes served with a salad and pineapple mango salsa. The salmon cakes were the size and thickness of a McDonald’s burger patty. Super fishy, didn’t come with the pineapple salsa and the salad dressing was watered down and tasteless. $19. The rest of the food was unimpressive and overpriced. I would skip the cost of this restaurant and find someplace that knows the value of salt, quality ingredients and service.

    Slow service even though there were only a couple of tables; the muscles were overcooked and the broth tasted like vinegar. The fried oysters were yummy.

    Our food just wasn’t good. The halibut starter was dry and there was too little sauce, the scallop was good but the purée was totally bitter and over spiced, and the pasta was meh. So disappointing as we have had delicious meals there in the past. Will wait for a chef turnover before dining there again.

    Richard’s was overall a very good experience. The ambiance was nice, the food was amazing, and the service was too notch. My one complaint is that I had to request my drink be remade due to the server bringing it over in a dirty glass, So I had to request a new one. Outside of this single incident, the experience was great. I would highly recommend for special events, business meetings, special dinners, and just a regular night out.

    We really enjoy our nights spent a Richard’s. It has been one of our favorite restaurants to go for special occasions and date nights. Our waiter was amazing… the scallop starter is my favorite item on the menu! It was excellent. My husband had a new item on the menu… a wagyu flat iron. It looked beautiful and he enjoyed the flavor. My one disappointment was the risotto. It was overcooked, sticky and dense. I could not eat bit a couple of bites. Over all, we will return but I will never order the risotto again.

    This was a birthday celebratory dinner and we have always enjoyed our times and food here at Richard's. This visit was a bit less stellar in consideration of two of our main dishes that arrived on the cold side (beef steaks). While the degree of doneness was spot on, it appears our dishes were sitting cold or not under a heat lamp prior to arrival at our table and this was unusual. One of the steaks had considerable gristle that didn't settle well. We are okay with all of this as sometimes there is an off-day in the kitchen and our visits in the past have been terrific. Service was very good and the ambiance was equally as good with the low level of noise and good specialty drinks from the bar.
