Always start with the doughnuts! We shared everything and got good reason. All dishes are unique and amazing and you will want to try as much as is practical .. or not. Added a fabulous bottle of wine and another great dinner in the books.

We had a less than satisfactory dining experience at this expensive Michelin starred restaurant. The food was very good, but the service was more than bad. It bordered on AWFUL. The wait staff tried their hardest to rush us--coming back to take our order 3 times while we were enjoying an appetizer, clear plates before we finished and bringing the next course before we had finished the prior one. The wait staff was also not engaging or friendly. One waitress seemed offended when one of us asked to keep a plate we hadn't finished. I'm not sure if better training could teach these servers better people skills, or if this is a top down philosophy. But to me trying to rush diners to turn over a table, is just about the worst practice a restaurant can have. Not coming back any time soon.

Quality ingredients presented beautifully in well composed dishes. The tonnarelli with sea urchin and miso risotto with Perigord black truffles were the stand outs. Our server was a bit aloof but the staff as a whole was outstanding.

Amazing food at this casual fine dining restaurant. Wine also was very good. Service friendly and efficient. We needed help with understanding the menu, but staff were patient and kind in explaining it all. Flavours and textures I will remember for always! Thank you

Rich Table is an absolute find! The four of us arrived for our 5pm reservation. Warmly welcomed we were seated right away. The place is unpretentious/casual decor and clientele attire. BUT the food would rival 3 star Michelin restaurants. Rich Table’s one star is richly deserved!
We enjoyed every dish we shared from deviled egg to roasted avocado with ikura. Pasta course with uni was beautifully prepared in a delicate broth. Miso cod with cornbread and kale was so good we ordered a second.
Comprehensive wine list caps off a perfect dining experience!

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.

First of all, Chef Brandon knew how to pick my dinner! My girlfriend and I chose to do Chef's Picks (About 6 courses with almost most things from menu). Yes, it's worth the $99 per person if you're looking to spoil yourself. Second of all, Tiffany was the best server ever and always checked-in at the right times and was very knowledgeable when it came to the menu and even offered suggestions. My girlfriend and I were ready to eat but were blessed with so much more. The appetizers were so dang delicious! Sardine Chip is a staple, who knew mushrooms in a donut (Porcini doughnuts), the aged beef wonton was mouth watering. The bread and butter is a must. Chef served us hamachi poke, which was silky smooth. The smoked date jam on rye was a perfect balance of soft and smokey. This place knows how to do pasta (Cacio E Pepe and Agnolotti). The Squash Dumpling and Trout with Sorrel sauce are even good for herbivores/pescatarians! My favorite dish was the aged beef wrapped in puff pastry poutine. The dessert was a surprise as well. To top it all off, Tiffany got Chef to sign our menu! Definitely know why Rich Table has a Michelin Star and at a great value! I want to come back to do another Chef's Picks and try the rest of their menu that was not picked for us! One of the best meals! I just wish the toasted ravioli was a whole plate!

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.

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.
