Message from John & Thu Ha:

"The Richmond" is a small family owned restaurant.

We offer two tasting menus: a 3-course menu for $40.00 and a 5-course menu for $75.00. Both menus come with optional wine pairings.

At "The Richmond" our goal is to put a premium on individual diners rather than volume. Each night we take a limited number of reservations. Our mission is to provide personalized food and service.

Please come and be part of our restaurant family.

Wine Program:

Our goal is to offer some of the cheapest "restaurant" wine prices in the Bay Area. We believe most local restaurants take advantage of customers with overly inflated wine prices. My wife and I are committed to selling wine at more than 30 percent below typical restaurant pricing. Our wine list has an emphasis on small local family wineries.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
