We had lunch today at Amour; I had the vegetarian tartine sandwich, sort of a rattatouie-like vegetable mixture on fresh bread, with a small vegetarian version of a nicoise salad. It was all quite good the salad ingredients very fresh. Others at the table got wine pairings and were very happy with that. If you go there save room for... More

We ate here on a busy Sat. Evening in July. Atmosphere was lovely. Greeting and service in General was very good. We liked the wine selection and actually we loved the half glass option, which allows one to taste different wines. The half glass was a good tasting size and was $ 4, perfect option for the designated driver! However... More

Had brunch with friends on a Saturday. The server was helpful and knowledgeable about the wine list. The brunch selections were slim. Seafood crepe wasn't as tasty as last time: the edges were crispy and there was more sauce than seafood flavor. The vichyssoise was very good, potato leek, probably the highlight of my meal. The water disappeared from our... More

Four of us had dinner there and each loved the experience. It is an intimate setting that provides an outstanding night out. We started with the cheese plate and veal sweet bread, both were exquisite and were paired nicely with a wine selection. For entrees, we had 2 hanger steaks, the duck, and the veal. Each was cooked perfectly and... More

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

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
