My wife and I went here last Friday evening..the first time in a long time. We've dined here many, many times in the past but have stayed away because of the crowded and noisy environment. Unfortunately, that's still the case. The food; however, is as good as ever. Another plus is that they usually have a good selection of fresh... More

A fan district restaurant that you need to search for. Parking's terrible, as is most of the Fan. The building front gives little indication of the restaurant upstairs and the steep narrow flight of stairs up reaches the entry door that has cleaning gear (brooms) hung on it. But inside is a nice restaurant with great food. Reservations recommended, though... More

We had read all sorts of negative things about this restaurant, i.e. the staff is rude, it is dirty, etc. That was not my experience. We saw a busy staff working very hard and efficiently to keep a busy restaurant running. We never had any problem catching our waitress's, someone else's, attention when we needed them. When we arrived the... More

My husband and I came here on a Saturday so I assume it was one of the busiest days of the week. We moved to Richmond from Boston so we were really craving some authentic Italian food. We are used to places that are loud, busy, crowded, with no reservations, and long waits. For instance, it is tough to even... More

I had heard great things about Edo's Squid from so many people so I was excited to bring my parents there when they visited me in Richmond for the first time. Unfortunately the dinner was pretty bad from start to finish. First, we couldn't even find the place for a while... its located above another restaurant and doesn't even have... More

Well after visiting Edo's for close to 8 years, I've finally called it quits! There is only so long you can put up with being treated like garbage, just for the delicious food, before anyone would have to avoid this place! It always seems to be something. For most, it's just not being acknowledged for some time when arriving, not... More

I have simple taste and had this not been a business dinner I probably would not have went here. This was the neatest experience, great food, huge portions and fair price. Very different atmosphere and the staff was nice but not sappy sweet and oddly enough I liked it. Really glad I went and it is a neat place to... More

I read the reviews from another site. I usually like to primarily rate the food and dislike when others focus on other aspects of the dining experience. I could care less if the wine is served in a small water glass, I don't need an interior designer to select the perfect color scheme. I am Italian & I love food,... More

After having so many friends rave about this place, decided to make a trip to Richmond to check it out. First of all, do not let the location discourage you. It is located down a small street and when you walk up the stairs to the restaurant, you may wonder if you are in the right place. DO NOT LEAVE!... More

I've lived in Richmond for a few years and for some reason it took me that long to get to Edo's! Now that I've been I've gone back and recommended it and just loved it! Small menu which makes it (a little) easier to choose. Don't miss this one!
