I went to Richard's this past Friday night with my husband, niece and brother-in-law. I was a little hesitant to go to a German restaurant because we had gone to Germany a few years ago and I wasn't really crazy about the food we ate, especially sauerkraut... Not a fan.
I didn't have to worry. Richard's has a "continental American" menu as well as a German menu. I did order off of the German menu but there was no sauerkraut in sight - whew. I had a lovely chicken breast marinated in wine with tarragon and mushrooms. The noodles were very good as well and the bread is very fresh and flaky. In addition to rolls, they offer you pretzels and mustard, which is a nice treat. My niece had the ravioli special of the night, and she is not a big eater, so the rest of us were happy to sample from her plate - it was really good.
The portions were just the right size, and the service was attentive, but not rushed. I'm surprised it has taken us so long to try this restaurant, given how good it is, and we would go back.
