    This was very disappointing to g and not the first time. The Calamari with pasta is actually past with a small amount of calamari. At least they are honest with the linguine with clams. Past was overcooked and very little flavor. Seems like Richard is no longer is the kitchen and food cost reduction is paramount.

    For an Italian restaurant the pasta was overcooked, the recipe you used for Clams and pasta contained other ingredients that were non-traditional. Poor quality but the waiter was good

    Mostly good. Appetizer shrimp with risotto cakes and basil - a big miss. The risotto cakes were OK but the shrimp was so over cooked it was so tough didn’t finish and the basil cream sauce was pretty flavorless also got the scallop appetizer it wasn’t as good as it used to be and at $10 per scallop the size of a quarter will not be ordering that again. Fig flatbread was good. Entrées were pretty good but the chicken wrapped in prosciutto that they’ve had on menu for a long time was disappointing. We like the atmosphere….,

    We've dined at Richard's a handful of times. Food is consistently good. Staff is friendly and attentive. The restaurant seemed extra noisy last night, with one patron Facetiming someone and practically yelling. I wish that the staff would have asked him to step outside. We brought friends with us that had never been before and I believe that overall they enjoyed themselves too.

    Handy location, nice room with pleasant and relatively quiet background music. Agreeable menu, friendly service. I had the pork porterhouse. While it was tasty, I thought it was overdone, and in retrospect, I don’t think I was asked how I wanted it cooked. I would have said “medium“. It came with no pink. Reasonably priced beer and wine. Excellent shareable salad.

    For the price, Richard's was just OK. My husband's halibut portion was quite small. Also, his lemon creme brulee was more of a pudding consistency than the typical custard thickness. All employees were kind and efficient!

    What a wonderful evening. Food was excellent. Service was attentive but not overly so, the perfect balance of service. Overly attentive can be so annoying. Noise level was low, even though the restaurant was full, allowing for easy dinner conversation. Overall I can find nothing to even nit pick about.

    Please don’t offer reservations at 8:30 when the kitchen closes at 9 and then act like we are an inconvenience when we come in for the reservation. We did not stay as we did not feel welcome. I suggest the restaurant change their reservation time options to avoid others from experiencing the same.

    It was Mothers Day, was expecting a notch above for the day. Picked Richards thinking it would be there, it was not. To be honest, I could prepare a better breakfast myself. Actually they wont like this, Big Bear Diner is a far better value all around... food, portions, taste, prepared well, service and value, should have taken her there, but she's a classy lady! I know its a broad comparison, but... just about any other place would have been better. The potatoes Richards served were tough and chewy, over cooked and no flavor. I could only eat about two thirds of them at best, the rest were not edible and a "very" small portion was served, and they were cold. My Mother ate half of hers. The muffin was dry and as equally tasteless, the omelette (brunch special) was good, but again very little flavor. And when my Mother asked for another tea bag for her tea, the server charged another fee and didn't refill her tea pot. Then to top it off the server was constantly interrupting, I hadn't seen my Mother for awhile, so it was a bit rude of the server in general, it was Mothers Day, I'm there for her not the server. Especially when I was asked if I had paid the check three time in fifteen minutes. When a customer puts the credit card or cash in the folder with the check, the standard is to put the CC in the slot at the top of the folder or let the cash stick out about an inch above the top of the folder to let the server know it's ready as to not continue to disrupt the patrons. I would have thought an upscale restaurant server would be aware of this, but it was not so. Very disappointed to say the least all around, will not return. First impressions matter! P.S. I spent 6 years in food service as a waiter including management in my 20"s, in the 1980's, working in Top Notch Restaurants in Los Angeles and Phoenix. My last year in the business I worked at The Pointe Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona. As a Capitan at the in house restaurant, The Golden Swan.
