We have been going to Richard's pretty often over the past few weeks and have to say the staff always impresses. Trey was our server tonight and he was completely first class the whole evening. Katie was the manager on duty and is as gracious a person as you are going to meet. We started off with wine and chips during happy hour. Tony was our bartender. Has a great disposition and knows how to make you feel welcome. Brenna was our bus person, and had been before. She's a real sweetheart who definitely has the gift of hospitality. Oh, and the food is great as well. We had the pork loin and the fried chicken. Both were about perfect. The ambiance is great. Richard's also seems to attract nice people as customers which combined with everything else make this establishment a very special place to have dinner. Celebrate an anniversary or just get away to have some fun.
My wife and I highly recommend this restaurant!

Great food and amazing staff. Katie, Kayla, Maria, Rachel, Tony, Gill and Brenna all make you feel welcome and genuinely want all their guests to feel like they're their only priority. Richard knows how to hire the right kind of people.

Fabulous staff, the food was outstanding. It is really Italian food with a Mediterranean flair. Not as heavy as standard Italian. Let's you have room for dessert!

We had the halibut over ravioli with a lemon caper sauce, and it was outstanding. We've never been disappointed at Richard's.

Boy that halibut was terrific. I love all your dishes but that one is truly awesome. Want to commend the waiter, but I've forgotten his name. Early shift last Sunday (~7 pm), about 5'10", not much hair on top, was really friendly and helpful. Super guy. Thanks for a great experience!

Food and service is exceptional! I have been a long time fan of Richard's starting with his Hyde Park bakery, Richard's Across the Street and Cafe Vicino. The food continues to be exceptional and I crave the gorgonzola figs. Every day!

After having not the perfect visit last time, we were hesitant to come back but this time everything was perfect. Our table was ready for us as soon as we arrived, the service was quick, the food was delicious and the overall ambiance was fantastic. Richard's lived up to its hype again.

Always special—the perfect end to a long and stressful day. There is probably nothing that a house salad (with that magical olive oil dressing) and the cannelloni cannot fix!

The food was delicious but...... We told them it was our anniversary and basically got no reaction from it or special treatment which made the experience not memorable. Between that and our waitress barely attending to us, we will not be returning here.

Outstanding as always. Love the new menu items, and dessert was excellent! Tre was an excellent server and his recommendation for red wine with dinner was spot on, and Travis insured we were well hydrated and table cleared. Will try to get back to Richard's more often.

Wonderful food, great service. The only thing I would suggest to improve is if you are sitting n the wrong direction towards the street in the evening when the sun is still up, there is a glare off the buildng across the street that makes you squint.

Absolutely great all around but they play house music, that pounding, aggravating noise that passes as music. Not appropriate for fine dining, more suitable in a club venue.
