Fabulous! We had not dined at Rich Table for 2 years and after our wonderful experience this week, we're scratching our heads and asking "why so long"? Everything was delicious, the service impeccable, and wines by the glass unusual, but perfect with our meal. R.T. is a superb place to eat before enjoying the performing arts in the neighborhood.

GF found a facial hair in a dish. Not a huge deal to us. But mentioned it anyway. We were comped a dessert and the item was taken off of the bill. I thought that was very nice. But then she found a second, longer hair embedded in the dessert! We looked at each other and just laughed at how comically bad the situation was.

Every dish was creative and absolutely delicious! Not any dish would I ever attempt to make on my own.
A totally lovely romantic cozy evening. Probably one of the best overall dining experiences in my past 12 years in San Francisco.

Really great food, and superb service. -- very much recommend overall.

My only gripe is that the restaurant has an open kitchen, and for whatever reason, the airflow must be pretty poor (even with all windows/door open). On the two times I've been there, my clothes ended up smelling strongly like food afterward. Not sure it would help, but perhaps get a table closer to the front windows.

It was our wedding anniversary and we waited for a long time to come here as it was highly recommended. Our server Joseph ruined our big day for for us. He was arrogant and not friendly. We were rushed. The appetizers were good but the main course recommendations were nothing special. It was basic pasta and the fish was ok. We were done with our food in 45mins. We did not even eat dessert as I was quite upset with the overall experience. It did not feel like a Michelin star restaurant.

I've been to Rich Table a handful of times, casually as a walk-in and with reservations. It's a wonderful neighborhood gem perfect for pre-post jazz/orchestra dinner in Hayes Valley or a trek from anywhere else for a special occasion or good meal.
The food is Californian with very inventive and creative twists that change more seasonally compared to other Californian restaurants. The menu is concise and best done family style. Admittedly from all my visits there are hits and misses depending on the season, but for the most part the food is very good and highlights seasonal produce in a very creative manner.
The ambiance is warm and cozy and lively making this a great neighborhood restaurant to frequent. There are cocktails and liquor available, as well as a wine list that is predominantly geared towards domestic and Californian wines.
Overall a very solid restaurant that I would not hesitate to recommend.

Rich table is an exceptional experience. The food is delicious, decadent and rich. If i had one criticism it would be the lack of anything light on the menu, there is not a salad or anything to contrast with the rich dishes on the menu.

I had such an incredible time at Rich Table! This restaurant has been on my list since I moved to the city and I hadn’t had the opportunity to dine here yet. The food was delicious and service on point. Dana served me and my friend tonight and its people like her we should have more in the hospitality industry. Kudos to the entire team! Will definitely be back.

It was our first time at Rich Table, and it was an amazing experience! The food was fantastic! The tasting menu (everyone at the table must participate) came with a wide variety of menu items. I really liked that not everyone gets the same exact menu so we could try more flavors and items. There wasn’t a single dish we did not like and did not finish! You get a lot for what you pay for; we were so stuffed at the end of our meal. The service was also top knotch! We’re excited to come back!

Best dish, but very rich is Sea Urchin Pasta. I also enjoyed chicken live mouse under small shared bites. Had a great mescal cocktail. Very inventive drinks.
All food creative and plated with artistic flare. Special occasion place.
