We had a great meal at the Belmont Food Shop last week. The service was impeccable, the cocktails delicious, and the food inventive. The hanger steak was accompanied by wonderfully spiced baked beans which really made the dish. The shrimp and avocado appetizer was outstanding. And, as other reviewers have mentioned, the chocolate silk cake was amazing. We really enjoyed... More

This restaurant was amazing!! I love how it's one price for appetizer, entree and dessert! Brilliant idea! The choices are simple but varied and there's something for everyone. The chocolate silk pie is probably one of the best things I've ever had!

Yum. Yum. Yum. Such a cute places for speciality drinks at the bar. You can't beat the $30 prefix dinner ( app, main & dessert)! It's just great got atmosphere and delish food. It was a tad salty last time I went, but I'll be again and again. And the best part? It's on Belmont. The best street in rva!

We literally stumbled onto this great, small, and intimate restaurant and had one of the best meals ever. We had the prix fixe dinner and we have had less and paid more in many places but this was an amazing value. The space is warm and cosy, about six tables and the chef, Mike, came out at the end to...

Everything on the menu was delicious. Drinks were equally great. The restaurant itself is on the small side (only seats about 15 at the table + bar). Food took a while to arrive, but was well worth the wait. Great service otherwise.

Service is prompt and guests are allowed to enjoy the cozy ambiance of the restaurant without feeling rushed. From the amuse-bouche to the last bite, I can guarantee your palate will be well satisfied. The best part... It... More

While Belmont Food Shop changes its menu frequently, I was fortunate enough to dine there when the appetizer list featured Braised Rabbit with Hominy and Corn. Tender chunks of rabbit with a creamy-silky sauce. The balance of corn and hominy perfected this dish. Because of the richness, the portion size was just right as well. We had not planned to... More

Our niece was in town yesterday, so we went to the Belmont Food Shop. It was our first dinner visit and we were very pleased. We had discovered the restaurant in a recent Real Richmond Food Tour. We each had the three course prix fixed meal (with appetizer, entrée and dessert, $32 per person) which was a good value. We... More

I was lucky enough to happen upon The BFShop last week for dinner. I was blown away with the value and preparations. Considering the interesting ingredients used the meal is a great value. Rice flaked Soft Shell Crabs, Braised Oxtail, and Foie Gras with Rhubarb were among the highlights of a superbly prepared meal. Congrats!
