perfect from beginning to end!

I am always excited to try small, quaint, run by locals restaurants, where every employee is vested in the success of the dining venue. This restaurant is truly one of "these" experiences. We had early reservations (a must), and was seated promptly. We were handed drink menus and the fun began... read more

Quaint, to the point of being small - Reservations are a must - Hole-in-the-wall, you'll dive past it twice by accident - But, all those said, one of the absolute best price-fix menu restaurants in Richmond. Fresh, creative, inspired dishes - and excellent bar and cocktail menu. At least stop in and get a couple appetizers and a drink while... More

We arrived on a cold Sunday night at 5: 45 ,and were greeted with the hostess/waitress asking if we had reservations to which we replied no ( looking around and seeing only one of their 5 tables occupied) and her reply was " well we have reservations at 7pm" To which I said "oh we will be well out of...

This is a quaint little bar/restaurant with prix fixe offerings only. I thought the appetizer (pickled vegetables) was only fair. The entree (venison) was quite good. Dessert (silk pie) was nice. Nothing disappointed me but not quite wowed either. Worth a try.

This restaurant is a gem. If I lived in Richmond it would be a place I'd eat at regularly. I've eaten here twice in the last month or so and both meals were fabulous. A few preliminary comments. The restaurant is small. I mean tiny. I think they have five tables. Including the bar, which seats six or seven, the... More

We have eaten here several times. The food has always been excellent, and at the price point is head and shoulders better than any other restaurant in RVA. Secret tip, have a cocktail, they are unique, the Orange Blossom is to die for.

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...
