They used to do a great 3 course meal that was a fantastic value and I miss it. With out that it doesn't really stand out from any of the other excellent lunch places in downtown. Their wine board that changes prices according to the market is amusing. Not a place to have a nice quiet anything, all hard surfaces and noise bounce. Feels friendly, but certainly louder than it needs to be. Still pleasant over all.

Our server was great! Super friendly and helpful in selecting entrees, responded graciously when I mentioned my cocktail glass looked dirty. Food was good, as usual. Only issue was the time it took for our entrees to arrive, which caused one in our party mild stress. I'll be back soon!

We had a wonderful experience in part due to the fantastic staff. Ryan our server was very accommodating. I asked for a dish that I he'd seen on the website a few days before that had been removed in a seasonal menu update. He checked with the kitchen and the dish was made for me. Which I truly appreciated. The sommelier was very knowledgeable and helpful in selecting wines and had some fun stories about vineyard/ wine experiences he has had. I will return next time I'm in town

This was an interesting meal. I went here with co-workers for lunch and ordered the Salade Lyonnaise. For an $18 salad, this was really disappointing. The portion was VERY small, the lettuce was bitter and there was little to no dressing. Braided bacon lardon was also listed as an ingredient and no kidding there were 4, 1/4inch chunks of bacon. 4! I was so confused by what I was eating. I felt like a I needed a side salad for my salad. I was hungry literally 1 hour later. The person next to me ordered the Duck Confit and said he would not order it again. Worth trying but not worth recommending, at least for lunch.

RN74 is a great restaurant in many ways, but what surprised us was that some menu items were not available for a Saturday (early evening) and that food and wines prices were primarily at the higher end (2-3x) compared to other local restaurants we believe offer better value with similar variety, presentation and quality. Should one simple salad, two entrees (venison and steak-frites) with no additional sides, an affordable(?) $84 bottle of 2011 Sicilian wine, and an espresso come out to $200 before gratuity? We agreed the service was great. The wait staff were very attentive. The sommelier was knowledgable and engaging. The ambiance and setting were pleasant as we were there before the crowds. So, if you're looking for a great meal, being pampered and not too worried about prices, RN74 offers a great experience in the heart of downtown.

Initial greeting from hostess was poor.
She had asked every other group before us if they would like to check their coats. When it came to our group she never asked. We had to ask when we got to the table.
Service following this was good. We found the "bread guy" to be the most interactive! Funny and made our table laugh.
Food was amazing. I had the chicken dish. Everyone else at our table cleaned their plates!
Overall good experience minus the beginning which I assume was an oversight.

First, the music is too loud in the restaurant. Since it has brick walls and large glass windows without curtains, the reflected noise makes conversation difficult. The entrees tasted like they were infused with salt. The tempura mushrooms were over-battered, so it was more batter than mushroom. The presentation was good, but not outstanding. The wait staff was friendly and personable, but a bit animated. The sommelier appeared the moment I was looking at their excellent wine list, which had a superb selection of French wines with some eye-popping prices.
1) Either hang some curtains or tapestries and turn down the music
2) The wait staff should be present, but not quite so conversational. I want to focus on my date.
3) The cooking should have more subtle flavors. It was good,but I expect better for such high prices.

Our server was fantastic! Knowledgeable and engaging without hovering.
I was slightly disappointed with the halibut bouillabaisse, although the butter lettuce salad could not have been better.
Overall, a bit overpriced.

We've had a number of very nice meals here. Not this night. Very disappointing nearly across the board.
We'll be back another night, trusting the food and service will return to the outstanding levels we'd come to expect.

Our family celebrated a wonderful evening on the 24th of December. Service was slightly slow but the restaurant was busy and we were engaged in great discussion so not a big problem. All of us agreed we would dine there again. Lobster pot pie was divine!

This was one of the better meals I've ever had. The food was fabulous. The service was great. We'll definitely come back here. Only issue was the seating: we got placed right next to the kitchen, which was distracting at times. Other than that, our experience was great

Dined here Christmas Eve. The food service and wine were excellent. Our chicken liver pate, recommended by the server was phenominal, like butter! The bouliebasse was perfect and my NY steak and fries was cooked just right and deliciously tender. We told the sommelier what we were having and a price range and he got us a delicious wine! The creamed spinach was not. It was sautéed spinach but nevertheless delicious.
The restaurant is not however, reminiscent of France. It is a large typical American style. It is neither romantic nor cozy. If you're looking for a French restaurant experience, this is not the place. If you're looking for an American restaurant with excellent food and service, dine here.

We made reservations and specifically stated it was for a 3 year old birthday. They say us at the only table in the place with bar stools. The table was great but not for a toddler.
The service was good but not great.
The food was really good but they did not have a couple items that they normally have.
The disappointing part of our experience was before dessert when the staff sectioned off the end of our table with large candles. Over the next 10 minutes they kept pushing the candles closer to us without saying anything. Then they crammed another party into the end of our table where they did not all fit. We left a little earlier than we wanted to do the other family could fit. I wish we would not have tipped already. I will not return to this place. I can tolerate bad food but not bad service.

Loved our meal but felt both the food menu and wine list were overpriced. Surprisingly, two in our party had overcooked fish/meat, unusual for a high end restaurant. Loved the hot rolls brought out at the beginning of our time, but disappointed with service that forgot our coffees and just said "oops, hope you stay awake during your symphony." Overall, a convenient option for symphony-goers but a disappointment value-wise.

My Mom and I dined at RN74 before going to the theater. We loved the food and the service was most excellent. However, it was a bit noisy and the table where we sat was quite high and difficult for my 72 year old mother to get up into. Regardless, we would definitely eat here again as the food and service made up for this!

I love the room but the prices are over the top for what you receive. $37 for maybe 5 oz of sturgeon with a few precious Brussel sprouts. Pretty presentation but please give me some food. The lobster salad needs work. Crunchy green beans did not complement the lobster. The wines by the glass are pricey. The complimentary dinner rolls were delicious. With so many fine restaurants in town, RN74 needs to be a bit more generous to get my patronage.

I love the food at RN74, but this is not the place to go before a theatre performance. We were there 1.5 hours before we needed to leave, and were very clear with the waiter about our needed departure time, and we still didn't get our entrees until 15 minutes before we needed to leave. This was the second time I've had that exact same experience prior to a performance. The food is too pricy to be shoveling it down so you can make your curtain call. Go to RN74 on an night when you aren't in a hurry to get anywhere else.

I love this place. I took a friend who had never been there before and he wanted to go back for dinner, so we went back for dinner just a few days later. Lunch service was better than the dinner service a few nights later. Food was awesome both times!
