Wandered in because it was cool and empty on a busy Saturday afternoon. A wonderful surprise. Clean and cozy. The service was impeccable and the food was fabulous. The gazpacho was to die for, the salad greens were so fresh and perfectly dressed. The cheese plate was nicely done. Paul and the waiter explained everything on the menu quite well.... More

My wife and I went to Amour during restaurant week in Richmond. The place is smallish but intimate. We had the prix fix menu and my wife chose the Savor level wine experience. We had a reservation and were seated quickly. Service was excellent but the food and wine were the main attraction. I had the gazpacho soup as a... More

Escargot, foie gras, and all the lovely French cuisine is present at this lovely gem of a restaurant. The wine list is focused and a... More

Food is excellent, inventively prepared. Paul, the patron, has an excellent way of describing menu options and, when requested, will suggest wine pairings, premium and regular, for each dish. If you're planning a trip to France, he's a good source of restaurant ideas!

We had an absolutely amazing meal here on NYE. The owner was very friendly and the food was some of the best I've ever had.

My best friend (he lives in New Jersey and I live in North Carolina) met here for lunch the weekend after Christmas. I chose this restaurant after doing research online. This place was just fabulous. The french onion soup was perfect for the chilly day (and all vegetarian). I order the Coquilles Saint Jacques et Crevettes (scallops are always my... More

Happened upon this restaurant after leaving the farmers' market. The waiter greeted us on the sidewalk with a menu. The brunch specials were definitely 'bistro-priced'. I certainly enjoyed my seafood crepe, it was very filling!! I will definitely return for lunch and dinner.

Dinner at Amour Wine Bistro in Carytown! What a great meal in a quiet setting. The owner came to our table and walked us through the menu and when we told him we will soon be in Paris he brought us a list of recommended places for meals! He also gave us his card and encouraged us to contact him... More

Amour Bistro sells itself as an authentic French bistro, but in fact, it is priced like a fancy restaurant. In France, bistros offer simpler food at more reasonable prices. The waitering is a bit pretentious, the food is reasonably good, but the portions are small.

I wish I could remember the waiter's name, he was great! I visited for a business lunch with a client I know loves wine, and we were not disappointed! I just wish I lived nearby so I could go more often :-( . I'm hoping to be back in Richmond this fall and will definitely be back!
