We went to Amour Wine Bisto for our anniversary, mostly after seeing the reviews on TA. The atmosphere is great. It is a small restaurant so not over crowded. Our waiter was excellent. I enjoyed the wine pairing, whereby the sommelier selects a wine based on what you are eating. The food was average. I felt that the sauces accompanying... More

I have been here with friends, family and romantic dates. Paul never ceases to amaze. This intimate dining nugget in Richmond is not only the most romantic place in town, it is also the gourmand's delight. I can't help devouring the escargot when I am there, nor can I resist his excellent selection of wines. I highly recommend a visit... More

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!
