Great ambience. Very friendly greeter and server. When a dish was too spicy for my wife the server took it and had it prepared to her liking. Bread pudding with whiskey sauce, ice cream, whipped cream and caramel sauce was wonderful More

This restaurant is amazing. The ingredients are carefully chosen, and largely local. The food is expertly prepared. I love their flexibility for people who have food intolerances/allergies. They will accommodate anything. The cocktails and wine are reasonably priced which is a real issue we have with a lot of restaurants in Richmond. It is nice to know a 3-sip martini does not need to cost $14! I got the scallops which were amazing. I don't eat dairy and they were happy to sautee the scallops in olive oil instead of butter. My husband got the trout and we both agreed it was the best fish dish we had tasted in a long time. We will be back to visit soon! More

We took a very special lady out to lunch for her 77th birthday. The atmosphere was quiet with relaxing music in the background. Our server was kind, knowledgeable, and professional. She was clear in explaining the menu options. The price of our lunch was extremely reasonable. I look forward to my next visit. More

Discover Virginia

Virginia is known for more than just delicious southern cooking; they have their own style! If you are a ham lover, look out for Virginia ham — also known as Smithfield ham. It is only legal to produce in one place in the world, Smithfield, Virginia. Virginian cuisine also includes a variety of BBQ that range from all vinegar to a vinegar-based sweetness. A hearty Brunswick stew is another mainstay of Virginia. Originally using an Appalachian flying squirrel, it now uses a variety of meats braised in this vegetable stew. Traditional Virginian apple cider and apple butter, made from Wineapples, is a real treat. Another delicacy is any seafood that is cooked with Old Bay, originally formulated with spices from a specific region of the state, the Chesapeake Bay.
