a word from Rick…
“After more than 35 years as the chef in some of San Francisco’s and Hawaii’s local favorites, such as Washington Square Bar & Grill, Canlis Grill in Hawaii as the Fairmont, Rue Lepic, and the Gold Spike, I dreamed of owning my own place…a neighborhood spot where I could entertain guests as if they were in my home. We’d serve generous portions of comforting, slow-cooked foods with an extra share of “Aloha..” In 1994 I finally found the perfect spot and “Rick’s” was born.
Richard Oku, Chef/Owner

Well, because San Francisco is home to such a diverse multi-ethnic group, our “San Francisco Comfort Food”? reflects that variety, too. Rick proudly serves dishes ranging from American to Continental, Italian, Asian, and even his native Hawaiian.
Everything at Rick’s is always cooked from scratch, even theaward-winning desserts?like Coconut Creme Brulee´, Hawaiian Haupia, or Strawberry Shortcake with homemade biscuits. Another award winner is featured is Rick’s Corned Beef Hash, recognized by the BBC as the best in the USA.
