    We had an amazing New Years Day brunch at Richards. The food was outstanding and the service was fantastic. It was relaxing and a great place to catch up with friends over wonderful food and thoughtful, kind, and knowledgable employees. Parking was also very easy - you can park yourself in their garage or use the free valet service.

    This is a review of the New Year's 2022 dinner only. The dining experience was disappointing due to poor communications and poor execution. First Open table made no mention that the NYE Menu was Pre-Fixe ($100/pp) In an apparent effort to go "continental" several of the limited choices were unfamiliar using romantic descriptions too complicated to understand. Starting with the "Amuse Bouche" entree, I chose a twice baked potato stuffed with goat cheese. A partially baked potato, about one inch in diameter with melted cheese was not worth mentioning on the menu. First course was limited to a beet salad (really half a salad) or a small bowl of bean soup. Both pretty good. Second course had three choices. I chose the house made Agriolotti filled with braised rabbit filled with etc, etc. Didn't know what to expect, turned out to be a pasta like crepe folded over white sauce. ( Agriolotti is supposed to be a "pinched" filled pasta") By the time we got to the entre listing we all zeroed in on the main description: 1) Briskette, 2) Fillet, 3) Vegetable "Bouillabaisse". Three of us spoke to the server about the fillet and two of us ordered it medium rare. My wife told the server she didn't eat beef so ordered the vegetable soup. Alas we were delivered two orders of brisket. We were told it was a brisket fillet. Ha! After some discussion, we discovered that the fillet on the menu was a Branzo Fillet (also known as sea bass). We sent our overcooked brisket back and finally were served overcooked fried sea bass. My wife kept her uninspiring vegetable soup. For dessert, three of us ordered "Flourless Chocolate Tart, hazelnut mousse". Turned out to be a half inch high chunk of dark chocolate which had hardened on top of a crisp cookie. One friend is allergic to chocolate and nuts so could not order either dessert choice and ask for some gelato or ice cream. We noticed he was charged an extra $4 for one scope of vanilla ice cream!

    We sure enjoyed our Brunch at Chandlers. Food was great, service was great, and we were pleased with the service. My only complaint was that the music was much to loud as we couldn't hardly hear each other. We did ask for less noise and they were nice enough to turn it down.

    If you go here, I would suggest that you go only for the wine. this may be just a monday thing after christmas but the fish was old, the osso bucco if you want to call it that was tough, not seasoned , I could go on but you get the point. After a rather tense discussion with wait staff on just getting noodles and meatballs for my grand daughter, we were rewarded with crappy service the rest of the night.

    Christmas Eve we always go out and in the last Richards has always been a great place for that special dinner. Not anymore. We were excited for the evening but nothing went right: For the price of a glass of wine you should get a nice pour but not here. White wine was poured in a red wine glass. $40 Sea bass had bones throughout and was sent back. Owner was present but never came over to talk to us. No compensation for a bad experience. Won’t be back and will tell everyone about what happened.

    Excellent food, if a fairly small menu. Attentive servers. But the noise level was high--partly I suspect because of relatively poor acoustics. We had trouble hearing our companions even though they were only a few feet across the table. Some of the tables, including ours, seem 'intimate' enough, but quiet conversation is no easy task.
