The experience was fabulous. A big Thank you to our server Suzanne Roberts she knew the menu inside out and help with selections. We came for the bone marrow and it did not disappoint. Great service, delicious food, interesting ambiance, great lighting.

The restaurant is closing as of 10/7, and this was the last "special/guest chef" nights featurning a menu by Adam Sobel, the chef who got RN74 its highest ever review in 2014. The food, presentation and ambiance were exceptional. The culinary highlight was Frogs Legs a la Troisgros, which Adam told me, was a replica of what he ate in 2004 at Troisgros in Roanne, France. Exceptional taste, superb mix of spices: shallots, lemon, toasted cumin, and wonderful almost miniature frog's legs. It was a great way for a good restaurant, with great wine combinations, to go out on top.

I've lived in the Bay Area for 7 years now and am ashamed to say that last night was my first time there, despite walking by it daily for the last two years en route to work. I'm ashamed because the filet I had ranked among the top 3 of my life - perfectly cooked and melting in my mouth - and the au poivre style is NOT to be missed. Pricy but worth it; ambiance great too. Get here.

There were 4 of us dining at the that day. 2 of us used gift vouchers from Travel Zoo and other 2 ordered from the menu.
Voucher food was not worth the money, well, desert was actually good. Appetizer were actually very good, salad was sour and I cannot find another word to describe it. We ordered 3 different main dishes (2 PAN-ROASTED MARY’S POULET, HERB-STEAMED HALIBUT and GARDEN VEGETABLE RATATOU ILLE TARTE. None of them was worth the money.
Service and food presentation were excelled.

Food was great .
I saw some debry in my Burbon and I had to ask them to change my drink ( looks like mosquito ).
We had very hard time to find a parking spot around this restaurant . We spent almost 40 minutes to find a parking about three blocks away from this restaurant . I recommend this restaurant if you do not need to drive in the city otherwise find a restaurant with value .

Again My steak was great .

Portions are very small for the price. Quality and taste not that good considering the price. Beef tartare had too many pickles in it and was overbearing on the beef flavor. The "famous" duck wings were just ok. Sort of tasted like Chinese roast duck but 3x as expensive. The chicken in the coq au vin was overcooked and dry. The halibut didn't taste very fresh and was too salty throughout. Tasted like salted cod instead of a fresh halibut fillet.

Service was attentive at times, but inconsistent. Super attentive in the beginning but food and drinks took a long time to get out and then we waited forever for the check. They even forgot our 2nd wine order and played it off like we never even ordered it.

The food was amazing. Everything tasted amazing, it had that special extra effort that really hit the spot! I highly recommend the lemon curd and the stone fruit salad.

Service was slow and not up to me at with the prices or the type of restaurant. I actually enjoyed the waiter he was just slow and we had to ask several times for things.

It had been a while since we had been to RN 74, so we dined on a Saturday after a day in the city. When we arrived, it was virtually empty, although it was a bit early (it did fill up by the time we left.) We learned it will be closing in a few months, to make way for a rib joint. We’ll miss the place. We love the décor with the wine listings as if in a European rail station of old. The service makes no mistakes and the wait staff is friendly and helpful. The food, which has move decidedly French brasserie, is wonderful – we had cheese filled beignets, butter lettuce and stone fruit/buratta salads, the roast chicken (to die for), halibut, some cheeses, and lemon cruellers. But it’s the incredible selection of wines that is the star of RN 74. Until closing, they’re running wine special – you tell them the price you’d like to pay and they will pick out a wine that cost the restaurant that amount. We had a wonderful bottle of Volnay under the special. Wine lovers should run to the place while it sells out its cellar.

This was our first visit to RN74 and it was a wonderful experience. The food is delicious and expertly prepared. The portions of bone marrow and the duck wings were huge. We chose the filet au poivre style, which was cooked to perfection! Our waiter was Bryce and he took great care of us. The only downside is the tables are very close together. Luckily, we dined late enough that no one was sitting next to us. They have an excellent wine list, too.
