    Banana bread French Toast was delicious. It’s your Grandmother’s recipe kicked up a few notches, while the avocado toast was decent. The egg was perfectly fried along with mild pico & fresh smashed avocado. Companion really enjoyed the bacon. I’d definitely order the scrambled egg sandwich and/or the banana French toast. Lovely staff & pleasant atmosphere. Thank you to Adam, Kimber & Mgr Matt for providing professional, high quality service. I will be back!

    My breakfast was one of the best egg sandwiches I’ve ever had! The menu is carefully put together & the service is top notch. The night prior I had a delicious dinner. Strongly recommend booking reservations. Staying at The Inn @ 500 Capitol & might book another reservation for dinner tonight! Show staff your room key & receive discount. Lovely decor & thoughtful presentation.

    The food was delicious with moderate portions. The wait service was excellent. The ambiance was good with noise levels that allowed for conversation for those with hearing impairment. The location is excellent with the added convenience of free parking which can be like finding a unicorn in downtown Boise. We will dine there again in the future.

    We went to Richard's for our 38th Wedding Anniversary. So excited to be treated to an incredible meal. So appreciated the covered dedicated parking. The employees there were the best. Nice touch with a card waiting for us at our table. Food wise, my husband's fish was somewhat over cooked. The appetizer was so small for the price we thought. It was very good but our minds weren't blown. Bummer. We still had a lovely time and my bourbon cocktail was incredible! Amazing aromatics.

    This was very disappointing to g and not the first time. The Calamari with pasta is actually past with a small amount of calamari. At least they are honest with the linguine with clams. Past was overcooked and very little flavor. Seems like Richard is no longer is the kitchen and food cost reduction is paramount.

    For an Italian restaurant the pasta was overcooked, the recipe you used for Clams and pasta contained other ingredients that were non-traditional. Poor quality but the waiter was good

    Mostly good. Appetizer shrimp with risotto cakes and basil - a big miss. The risotto cakes were OK but the shrimp was so over cooked it was so tough didn’t finish and the basil cream sauce was pretty flavorless also got the scallop appetizer it wasn’t as good as it used to be and at $10 per scallop the size of a quarter will not be ordering that again. Fig flatbread was good. Entrées were pretty good but the chicken wrapped in prosciutto that they’ve had on menu for a long time was disappointing. We like the atmosphere….,
