Must try this restaurant. After extensive online research, I managed to get a Monday at 5 on reservation a week in advance of our SF trip. There was a gluten allergy in our group and they couldn't have been more accommodating and considerate. Had the Brussels sprouts and grilled avocado - to die for! Had a twilight cocktail with tequila... More

We went to Rich Table relatively early for dinner, and were lucky enough to snag reservations. It was already packed when we got there. They offer a small menu that rotates, and you can do a la carte or the chef's table, where you get one of everything on the menu. We did a la carte, and of course had... More

We chose this restaurant based on reviews and some friends' recommendations. First of all, we were aware of the prices at this restaurant but surprised how easily they added up as the '"small" plates are very small servings. The service was great. The server was attentive but not intrusive. All of the front of the house dresses casually which is... More

We loved the dining experience at Rich Table and cannot wait to get back. Food: we had the Chef's tasting menu and loved it. My wife is vegetarian, and she was glad that they had a vegetarian menu to suit her dietary habit. They encourage you to share with your partner. We loved every course, just enough food and the...

Every time I come to SAN Francisco I come to Rich Table one of my favorite restaurants. The atmosphere is great, everyone is so friendly and the food is amazing. This is a place to share. The appetizers are all excellent. We had the hamachi, the steak tartare, the chips with sardines and the caviar with chicken biscuit, this caviar... More

This is a bib gourmand and well worth it. A small restaurant that requires reservations. The menu is served tapas style with the option for the meat portions to be served as an entree. Musts are the Porcini Doughnuts, Burrata, Pappardelle, oysters. The server provides great suggestions for wine pairing. Great evening!

We decided to reserve at the opening time of this restaurant so we would be sure to get to our opera on time. This worked well, as 2 hours is needed to be certain to get the full experience. Great and imaginative food! We tried the hamachi collar and cauliflower to start. Both were wonderful. My pork chop was unusually... More

We hadn't been to Rich Table since it first opened. We found the food to be rather ordinary on that first visit and haven't been back since then, but since then the reviews have been getting stronger and stronger and it got harder and harder to book a table. We went there yesterday (a Sunday) for a very early dinner... More

The food is mind blowing here. Imaginative. Challenging. Delicious. One of my favorites. From the appetizers to the entree to dessert to cocktails, it was on point the whole way through.

Staying in Hayes Valley

Neighbourhood Profile
Hayes Valley
Chock full of designer boutiques, art galleries, funky shoe stores, and great restaurants, it’s hard to imagine Hayes Valley once languished in the shadow of a major freeway. Its removal allowed for the creation of an attractive boulevard on Octavia Street with a community park at its center and dozens of trendy businesses to satisfy visitors looking for a stylish respite.
