    The hostess and server were very friendly and attentive. Highly recommend getting a table. It does get packed and having a seat with your guest makes it a better experience.

    Chill, not crowded around 8pm on a Saturday. Picked up pace around 10pm. Pricey food and mostly finger foods. Good customer service. Expect to dish out close to $100 bucks for two people. Not sure how the actual DJ event was layer that night but the bathroom trailers in the back were the cleanest I’ve ever experienced in life.

    Transition from lounge to night club is pretty good. But leaving your lounge area with drinks still there and letting a few employees know we would be right back. They cleared our area. But let us continue to sit. Our replacement drinks were supposed to be comp'd but we never got them.

    Out with friends and family for early birthday festivities. Service was good except we had a staff change and got lost in the shuffle. Our new server didn’t stop by for quite some time. Which was a bit annoying but eventually got a beverage order in. Ambience was great! Decor was fun and the cabanas were nice. Food arrived in to-go boxes which was a bit strange but the food itself was yummy! Had a good time! Will be back!

    The music / noise level was a little too loud. They need to turn the music down a little if it's not full capacity. I had trouble hearing the people in my party of six. I ordered the brisket melt which was pretty good, my friend ordered the chicken pesto sandwich which was also tasty. The waiter Razzle was amazing, filled our water glasses frequently and was very attentive with our needs. Rick D, San Diego, CA.

    All together a good time! Blake is an excellent waiter! The music was a little low so couldn't really vibe to it. Our light did not work at the table so it was a bit awkward once it got dark. Food is very pricey for what it is.

    It was our first time at Rich's so we were a bit nervous. I've heard great thing about it from my fitness and coworkers so I decided to try it out. The people were so friendly and made us feel very welcomed. The food was good and the drinks were great. The outside seatings were very organized and not crowded around each other. Next time we will try inside seatings!
