Don't get me wrong, we enjoyed our meal but I don't know if it was expectations due to reputation or an off night but everything was..... just good. I enjoyed the mushroom soup; very well done. It was a nice environment but not cozy. The steak was well portioned and cooked to the perfect warmth. Service was..... acceptable but not... More

I first heard about RN74 years ago before even moving out to California. I randomly saw an article in wine spectator about them and their unique European-style train schedule board that tells you what wines in the cellar are hot for purchase. That part of the atmosphere was our main draw, because that told us the wine selection would probably... More

Took some customers for a business dinner and really enjoyed the atmosphere and wine. Souffle was worth the wait, but my sea bass was a little disappointing. I would try again as the rest of the group enjoyed their meals.

Recommended by a friend - we are so glad we dined there. The restaurant is a bit noisy but has a great vibe. A very eclectic menu - we ordered all appetizers/small plates & then didn't have room for a main dish. Definitely try the mushroom soup, warm olives, brandade beignets. Extensive wine list and our server was very knowledgeable.... More

Pretty good food. Especially pate du canard and steak tartare. Loud place. Not really for a romantic date setting. Lots of suits going after work meals or business meetings. Great wine selection.

My husband and I decided to visit this restaurant because of their reputation and wine list. It did not disappoint! We got one of their "last bottle" wines and then followed the recommendations of our wait staff as far as what to pair with the wine. It was a perfect match and the food and service were excellent! We had... More

I chose this restaurant because of its proximity to our hotel and knowing of Michael Mina's reputation for fine dining. With no signage out front, we weren't sure we were in the right place until we walked in the door. Modeled after a train station and using props and décor to keep with the French railway theme, the feel is... More

We had a predinner drinks here. They were delicious! Between the bunch of us -- I tried the good neighbor (YUM), Soggy Dollar (sweet and spicy), and the Russian Tea Service (also delicious). We also had the toasted nuts and the selection of three cheeses. The walnut bread and spreads the cheeses came with were really fantastic. Service was slow... More

RN 74 was always a favorite of mine with it's creative seasonal menu, extensive wine list and outstanding service. After the last few visits here, it seems the magic is fading away. The last memorable meal here was Easter brunch two years ago when everything was outstanding from start to finish. Staff now acts like you're privileged to be dining... More
