Overpriced and very average compared to other SF dining spots.
I have eaten at this restaurant several times and have never been disappointed. I usually get the Duck Confit, which has always been stellar. However, with a few changes to the menu, I ordered the cured yellow tail as an appetizer and the Croque Madam for a main course. These dishes were even better than my usual favorite. A great place to take clients for lunch in the Financial District.
Nice ambiance but too $$ for food. The Chef lacks experience; not well defined flavours and odd texture combinations. Clearly, your $$ go to pay decor and cool concept. I Would not recommend this restaurant to friends.
I don't think I've ever given a restaurant a bad review but this visit was pretty awful. Maybe my expectations were too high but I was let down. We came here for our 11th wedding anniversary and were extremely disappointed with the food, the service and the wine list.
Will not go here again or recommend it. Overpriced and underwhelming.
Food was executed very well although they were out of the item I picked around 8:30. Wine list was amazingly rich and versatile. So far so good. BUT, all the praising for food and wine dissipated down by the way our table was served. The waiter was not attentive I assume because of the number of tables he was trying to cover. We had to wait for long time to grab his attention and each time it took a long time for him to deliver the help. The person who presented the bottle of wine, was just not caring at all about the fun of it and seemed quite uninterested in what he was doing. Also, I don't care if it is a $200 bottle or $2000 bottle, you deliver it to your patrons with care and respect. He did not present the bottle cork either....
I was really looking forward to lunch at RN74 because the Croque Madame, of which I had fond memories, was back on the memory. Unfortunately, it wasn't as good this time as it was the last time I had it. However, the vanilla custard, which was sort of a deconstructed creme brulee, was outstanding. As usual, service was exceptional.
Food was excellent, the only disappointment were the Bignets(sp?)
The train station ambience is clever and unique.
Slick looking crowd on a Saturday night.
Creative cocktails, artful presentation of delicious food and superior and attentive service
Thanks for the great food and service. Will keep coming back!
Great happy hour menu and wine selections
Great.... so many other great options in sf to compete with. Solid... but not the best
We had a great time, my girlfriends birthday and we were out for FUN. From the start to the finish a exceptional experience. Our waiter was very personable and took great care of us. The Tuna Cruso was to die for, the mushroom pasta paired beautifully with the Burgundy, and the wine list was beyond approach. We even had the opportunity to chat it up wity Raj their Sommelier, a man after my own heart, or should I say he helps me with my Burgundy addiction.
Thanks to all the staff, you made our afternoon an outstanding experience!
I have been twice in 3 weeks and will be going back very soon
I went to RN74 to celebrate a special occasion with a group of friends. The restaurant asked what the occasion was and unexpectedly provided us with a bit of champagne to celebrate. Overall the staff was very friendly and helped us with choosing an excellent wine for dinner as well. Of course the food was very tasty and well prepared.
We attended RN74 on a recommendation and what a great one it was. Terrific ambience, service and food. I could not be critical of one thing at this restaurant. It wasn't cheap, but great food in San Francisco and such good service............what do you expect?
The food was great. Waiting staff who knew what they were talking about, weren't pretentious and knew about the wines and food. The lighting and the setting were excellent. Staff were welcoming and friendly and afterwards, I just left feeling I had a great dinner and would want to go back again in future.
