The restaurant is located in a somewhat unlikely spot and a bit difficult to locate the entrance! However, once you are inside, it is very inviting. We were there for Sunday lunch but it wasn't our first time at the restaurant. The menu is not "brunchy" for a Sunday, more directed toward the "hearty". It was definitely delicious and well executed. The menu options are interesting, well-chosen and elevated beyond the norm.

We were warmly greeted by staff at the door and entered a beautiful space that wasn’t very well laid out. We enjoyed two excellent appetizers and two main dishes. Service was prompt and the servers were very courteous. We recommend here for a good experience and outstanding food.

The Richmond Station was one of the best dinners I have ever had . The service was friendly and professional... Natalie looked after all our needs . We experienced the tasting menu ... or what they call ‘let us cook for you ‘ ... everything was delicious... from the fresh oysters to start , right to the beautiful and tasty desserts at the end . The fresh ricotta cheese and cold asparagus soup were amazing as was the steak and burger course ... there was also courses of salad , fish and charcuterie all beautiful prepared . The respect for and the love of food is very evident here ... it truly is a gem and it was a pleasure to eat here .

I'd like to say first and foremost the food was absolutely delicious. Everything was paired so beautifully together in terms of composed well balanced dishes. What I did find missed the mark is the fact my husband requested Richmond Station for Father's Day specifically to try the "carte blanche" menu as featured on the restaurant's website. We made a 5pm reso and were prompt knowing tasting style menu's can take longer and our daughter was with us. I was very surprised when we got there and inquired about this feature, we were told we couldn't be accommodated because it would take 2.5 hours and there was a 7pm seating that we had to be gone by. It didn't give me warm and fuzzy feels as there was no time limit noted when the reservation was made. It was suggested that we could have a condensed 6 course version that would fit within our time frame. We accepted this offer and hoped things would bounce back. We never saw our original server again and another gentleman took over, he was pleasant however the timing between the first 4 courses was exceptionally long and nothing was "carte blanche". We could have ordered more drinks if we had been asked as well. Everything that came through, as delicious as it was, was off the regular menu. My daughter's hamburger and fries were exceptional & came in handy as we waited over 20 minutes between simple oyster, salad and chilled soup courses. Our first protein course arrived to the table at 7pm when we had been advised we should have be on our way. It left me feeling a tad let down: A condensed six-course meal took 2.5 hours to be served when I was advised that the eleven-course meal would have been that long and we couldn't be accommodated. So perhaps it was the trade off to dining on popular Father's Day, although ironically there were more then a few empty tables when we were leaving. The food was that good though, that we might try again adults only and call in to ask about this "carte blanche" prior.

We ordered a salad with trout and there was no trout. The asparagus was non existent no dressing tasted like it wasn't washed. Has a very bitter taste.
We ordered organic chicken and it came in medallion form. Mine was raw and rubbery- I have been all over the world and never returned a dish in my life except for that night to ask for it to be cooked. It came back in worse shape. I was starving but just couldn't swallow it. And l can usually tolerate anything. The desert was too small of a portion. The balance of the main was way too salty. Everyone of my party of 4 were disappointed. Good thing that the service was great and we got our calories from the wine. Cheers, Karen 416 230 6454

Service was fantastic and the ambiance lovely. I found the food to be somewhat confused as to its identity. I have no problem with fusion cuisine but every dish seemed to have a different influence and this was somewhat jarring. The lobster bisque was fabulous, however one customer couldn’t eat it due to a cilantro allergy (this seems a bizarre ingredient to put into lobster bisque). The pierogi were lovely but accompaniments somewhat unbalanced. Beef tartare served on fatty fried potato were cloying and slightly lacking acidity.

This is the place we choose time and time again when we come to visit TO. The fact that there are no restaurants worth going to in our small town is made up for by the fact that a couple of times a year when we are in Toronto we know we can enjoy this gem of a restaurant. Consistently excellent. Thank-you!

We have been trying to get into this restaurant for a while. It was a little more expensive then we had anticipated for a lunch. The burger was delicious and so were the fries. The pork 3 ways could have used a little more pork and a little less filler. It was also delicious though.

Love Richmond Station. I’ve been there a few times and tried different items on the menu even though it was nearly impossible to move away from the best burger and fries I’ve ever had.
Staff are knowledgeable, service is excellent.
Unlike many other restaurants I’ve been to a few times, I can’t wait to go back!

Went for dinner before a play at Elgin Theatre. Food and service were both fantastic. Ambiance was nothing exciting... it’s not a restaurant you’ll go and spend 2 hours dining... but we would go back 100%. We shared a salad... chickpea fritter and beet. I never would have ordered it but I’m so glad we did. Then we had the roasted cod and lobster spaghetti. Both were wonderful, and just the right amount of food. They cap off the meal with one tiny piece of fudge for each guest. Perfect.

Overall good experience, but wasn’t particularly impressed with the food. The duck liver pate was good and I enjoyed the pairing with the raisin brioche. The chicken fried oyster mushrooms were oily, didn’t have much taste, and the batter completely overpowered the mushrooms. The beef tartare was good, however, my friend and I both thought the pommes kennedy took away from the taste and texture of the tartare. The tartare would’ve been paired better with something thin, crunchy, and salty. The scallop crudo was okay, but didn’t excite my palate. The Ferrero Rocher dessert was good. Overall good presentation and service.
