The chef, John was very hospitable. Food was great - very generous portions, well execute, and great value for the money. The wine pairings were really outstanding. And the atmosphere was wonderful- quiet, though the restaurant was booked which made conversation easy and comfortable.
I did not want to write a review...only because I would like to keep this wonderful restaurant all to myself.
We had a FABULOUS meal and the service was excellent! What a great find.... We will be back!!
Friendly chef and staf, great food, great pairing of wine with food, intimate atmosphere
One of the top dining experiences of my entire life. First class in every way. Fantastic food.
Wonderful meal, EXCELLENT service.
I’ve already planned my next 2 visits to this neighborhood gem.
My husband and I love this restaurant. We got the $40 prix fix x 2: crab cake, short rib with scallop, steak, salmon with shrimp fritters, 2 ice cream and chocolate suffle. Love love love. It's a 2 and 1/2 hour meal. You must relax and enjoy the services there. We always do.
The food here and the value for your money cannot be beat. The owner is very friendly and greets everyone personally. It is a very small restaurant and the several of the tables are in their own alcove so it almost doesn't feel like a restaurant. If you want privacy, that is good. It you want to be people-watching or feel like you're in a lively restaurant, not so good.
It is all about the delicious food at the Richmond.
Very warm service. Generous host. Good food and a very good price. Highly recommended.
Very intimate setting. Super quiet so you can enjoy your meal and your own conversation at your table. Chef is amazing in pairing wine with his food creations. Chef greets you and makes sure you enjoy your time with him.
Excellent food for a good price. Three course at $40 is a great value; all the choices were outstanding. Wine pairing very good as well. Extra touch of small potato leak soup and house made herb butter was a nice way to start. 2 hours was a long time for a 3-course dinner, enough to where we were issued an apology. However, I will gladly go back again and again.
Best restaurant in the Richmond District.
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.
We love The Richmond - it's our neighborhood fine dining destination. It's surprising how many other locals we mention it to aren't familiar with it - it is a "hidden gem." We hope our word of mouth has encouraged our friends to visit for their special occasions. The ambiance is quiet and intimate, the food always seasonal and exquisite. The chef-owner-everything is very kind and personable. We look forward to our next excuse to come & hopefully bring more folks with us!
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.
