About The Richmond
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.
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.

The Richmond Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
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!
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!
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
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.
The Richmond was the perfect venue for a casual date night. The food was delicious from start to finish, and a great value by San Francisco standards. The service was attentive and the atmosphere was super cozy. I would definitely recommend this place to friends and will be back in the future!
My wife and I were in town visiting San Francisco and booked a table at this wonderful little restaurant. The restaurant is small with 8 or so tables. Each table is very private -- we finally felt we had a real occasion to talk without being distracted! The staff of the restaurant is small and willing to engage to make sure the evening is enjoyable. The chef/owner is also the waiter and he helped us pick out a terrific bottle of wine (after letting us try three different ones to make sure we liked it). The food was excellent and really represented cooking with seasonal ingredients. It is a well priced three course meal with an appetizer, main course, and dessert. We loved all three courses. The owner even walked us to our taxi when the meal ended. It was such a nice evening and one of the highlights of our trip.
We always enjoy dining at The Richmond. The food was wonderful and beautifully plated. The staff is attentive and friendly. John the chef/owner dropped by our table several times to talk to us and answered questions about how the food was prepared. We appreciated his attention and willingness to share recipe "secrets".
Hard to beat this friendly, welcoming, informally casual neighborhood haven -- a quiet place to relax with friends for dinner or to celebrate that special wedding anniversary. Three-course and five-course tasting menus--with or without thoughtful wine pairings--offer a wide range of sublime combinations. The wine list reflects the owner's hands on approach to everything, coupled with extensive knowledge and intent to offer a range of value prices that are not found anywhere else. After nearly 15 years of menu refinement and experimentation, the Richmond has evolved into an experience that always delights.
We had a terrific dinner at the Richmond in that the food and service were great. Chef John stopped by and chatted about the specials. I mentioned that we were celebrating our anniversary. We opted for the 3 course fix price meal which included appetizer, main entree, and dessert. Then came the special treatment and service. First Chef John came back with 2 complementary glasses of wine. Then warm fresh bread and 3 different spreads were brought followed by 2 small cups of soup. We ordered the Crab Cake and the Whisky Braised Oxtail with a Maine Diver Scallop for appetizers, and they were delicious. The Crab Cake was moist and tender and packed with a lot of crab. The Whisky Braised Oxtail with a Maine Diver Scallop were also cooked to perfection. For the main entrees we had the Duck Leg and Bone in Pork Roast. The Pork Roast was so tender and juicy and I never had any Pork like that before. Then came the complimentary dessert Coffee Semifreddo with lighted candles and the waitress singing happy anniversary before the real dessert. I was getting full but everything was so delicious that we kept going. For dessert, we ordered the Panna Cotta with fresh fruit on top and warm Peach Crisp which topped everything off. Chef John stopped by one last time to ensure that we were satisfied and enjoying our dining experience. He mentioned that they always try to do their best in terms of the food and service but know that they can't please everyone. I think from all the positive reviews that people are appreciating their efforts. We rolled out of the Richmond happy campers having had a great anniversary celebration of terrific food and service at a very reasonable price.
