Dinner with Mom

My 87 year old mother loves French food. On a whim, on a Thursday night, we went in so she could have something light and delicious. Amour came through! A tomato peach gazpacho to start, followed by fois gras and ribeye. The portions are smaller than Americans are used to, but just right by world... read more

In fairness, I've only been here once. My friend and had Sunday brunch here. Even though the menu prices look reasonable, extras like toast cost extra. We both ordered the Florentine omelet. It was small but tasted ok. Because i was still hungry, i asked for an order of toast which I split with my friend. The biggest surprise was... More

We had been told that this was an up-and-coming, under-the-radar restaurant, a favorite of the couple who recommended it. We were sorely disappointed. Perhaps, because it was Richmond Restaurant Week and it was a prix fixe menu, the quality was less than usual, but we're unlikely to go back to find out. For the first course, my husband ordered the... More

Decided to explore Carytown during a visit to Richmond for a conference. Explored several lovely shops and one of the shopkeepers suggested we try Amour for Lunch. We did not regret our decision, and the relaxing lunch definitely got me in my happy place. We had Kir Royale to drink, a lovely champagne concoction. I had the prix fix lunch... More

The meal was great along with the wine pairing. The service was also good. The place has a nice cosy atmosphere. Because it was a Valentine Day special the menu was prefixed and the wine pairing was excellent.

We were heading to cancan which was crazy crowded and remembered this restaurant, what a great move. Lovely, quiet, atmosphere and attentive service. Food may be a bit pricier that can can but worth every penny. The wine, a pinot noir from the Languedoc region of france, was sublime. Cauliflower bisque was so incredibly delish we were wiping out the... More

Enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Amour for a table of 16. The food had great flavor and the service was excellent. Like most French restaurants you should plan on taking your time and enjoying the evening.
