Start with the Pimento Cheese Appetizer!

We had a gluttonous evening that included clever cocktails, the pimento cheese dip and generous entrees. We wanted to try everything! We waddled contentedly back to our hotel.

I have been to Comfort many times over the years and love the side dishes. This trip was a bit slow to start with but once the drinks came everything smoothed out and the service was more effective. Food as always was amazing, with stars being the squash casserole and the creamed spinach, topped off with a shared banana pudding... More

My husband and I each ordered the catfish and 2 sides. My mac n cheese was lukewarm, flavorless and dry. The greens were hot however, I learned that I am not a fan of greens. My husband's sides were also lukewarm. The catfish was very hot but flavorless (hello salt and pepper). In addition, the woman who seated us was... More

Good southern comfort dishes at dinner. Had meat + 3. Although the entree was good, the real stars were the side dishes! Had the creamed spinach, squash casserole (the absolute best), and mac 'n' cheese.

Food was excellent. Grilled chicken sandwich with homemade chips. Odd that they were out of fries on a Friday lunch time. Good vibe to the place. Only reason not 5 stars is waitress could be a little friendlier. Bit of a chilly attitude. But we would go back.

I want to like this place as it's walking distance from my place of work but I find it uninspired. I get the concept but it seems to have out grown the mac and cheese vision that put it on the map years ago. I feel it hasn't evolved well with the burgeoning Richmond dining explosion.

Been here twice. First time was amazing second time was ok. For some reason the second time I went the barbecue had way too much vinegar almost unbearable. There okra is the best side. You should get 2 sides of it. Try not to sit next to the door during the winter months it sucks with the constant draft.

charming little gem serving up some of the best southern food in Virginia. the fried ikra is too goo to describe. Menu is simple well prepared comfort foods. An extensive bourbon menu. Save room for dessert, the banana oudding served crem brûlée style...shut the front door! You would be remiss if you went to Richmond and didnt stop by Comfort.... More

Nice staff and very knowledgeable about menu. We had great cocktails - they do lots of local and craft ingredients- for example they make their own ginger beer. Dinner was fine/ none of us were overwhelmed with our food- fine, a bit salty. The menu is, as they say, comfort foods and good choices. My favorite thing was the squash... More
