Everything about this place is a little gem. The quiet neighborhood atmosphere and location, the delicious tasting menu (we’d recommend the seared salmon and chicken confit), complimentary starters, tasty affordable wine, perfect music playlist, and uber friendly staff and owner John. Total mom and pop-esque feel restaurant with no advertising or website, only word of mouth. Only takes (limited) reservations, but definitely worth booking in advance. Will definitely be coming back.
Fantastic experience as always. Plenty of choices on three-course tasting menu, all prepared and presented beautifully by a chef/owner who is helpful selecting dishes and wines. The three course menu is an incredible value at $40 and the wine list has great selections, running from budget to prized offerings.
Had a fantastic time here. The food and the service are outstanding. You're hard pressed to find both for such a reasonable price. I'll definitely be coming back.
I finally tried this neighborhood gem and was pleasantly surprised by the attentiveness of the chef and the quality of each dish on the tasting menu.
We've been dining at The Richmond since it opened many years ago. John, the chef/owner, is a gracious, knowledgeable host. The food is great and the atmosphere is one of the few quiet, lovely restaurants in SF.
Had a wonderful dining experience at The Richmond. Food was fabulous, and John, owner/chef, made the experience even better. We'll definitely go back next time we're in SF.
Lovely, private, quiet atmosphere. Food was great and management extremely accommodating. Will certainly return at next opportunity.
Delicious food. Excellent service. 👍
Very charming restaurant. Service was personal and very pleasant. The chef came to the table and made conversation. The food was quite good.
Very impressed with the menu, food & presentation all excellent.
What a delightful experience.
Loved the private dining areas and ambiance.
Our server was charming, the food was excellent.
In this day and age, it’s challenging to know which reviews are real and which reviews are hidden ads. The lack of marketing and PR makes this restaurant harder to find but it is a local gem! The food and service are impeccable. 5 stars for the food and 5 stars for the service. If you are lucky enough to get a reservation at one of their 7 tables, make it happen! You won’t regret it.
Mom’s 75th birthday. Portions are Generous and artfully prepared. John explained each pairing and poured robust amounts without apology or pretense. Our server, Joon, was attentive and engaging. We recommend this place for anyone who is interested in a fine meal at a very reasonable price in a comfortable setting.
I really appreciated the time the chef spent with us and helping us choose a nice wine pairing. The portions are amazing, and the food was excellent....loved the panna cotta.
A great restaurant with great service and phenomenal food.
John was fantastic. He’s the owner, chef, server, everything. He does it all.
The food was incredible and I wish I could have visited another night of our stay!
Have been going to The Richmond for about 10 years and have never been disappointed. Just the opposite.
We celebrated a 50th wedding anniversary here-simply lovely.
Fantastic food via either a 3 or 5 course tasting menu. Every single item was exceptional and extremely reasonably priced. John, the owner/chef did a phenomenal job.!
Truly a Neighborhood Gem! The Richmond is simply fantastic all around; the food, ambiance and service are top notch. The prices are so reasonable for the quality of the dining experience. I can't believe it took so long to try out this neighborhood restaurant but I will certainly be back!
What a little hidden treasure.
John was absolutely amazing. He was attentive, eager to accommodate us, and anxious that we enjoy our food. We can’t wait to return. What a special event our dinner was, and the food was fabulous!
John and his team at The Richmond went above and beyond to make our experience truly amazing. My husband and I were married earlier in the day and chose The Richmond to celebrate. Upon hearing of our celebratory news John and his team went to quick work making our evening a night we will never forget. The food was delicious, and the service was the perfect amount of attentive. We will definitely be back!
My only regret is that I have recommended this restaurant to so many people that now I have difficulty getting a reservation. Always good!
Excellent local restaurant with attentive service and a short but well curated and affordable wine list. Attended for midweek dinner and was very impressed with the tasting menu and personable owner. Highly recommended.
Great food, great service, consistent quality as usual. We make a point to eat here twice a month. John the owner is most kind.
We were a party of 5 and has a wonderful experience. the owner ; chef checked with each person and made 5 different meals for each of us ... FOOD WAS AWSOME ..
restaurant was quite and we could really hear each other. We loved the personal touch.
will go back again asap.... the silverman's
Really a pleasant surprise in the Richmond. Great compliment between wing pairings and tasting menu. Incredible value.
Love this place. This city has a lot of great restraurants but when I lived in North Beach I found this place worth the drive. I have left California, when I returned last Thursday to take my daughter out for dinner, I picked the Richmond and we could not have been happier.
I had a great experience at the richmond. Food and service was an A+. The owner was super friendly and knowledgeable about food and wine. Great place for a date.
