This was my third time visiting this establishment. The food was wonderful. It's a unique little hole in the wall. They accommodated one of my friends that has a ton of food allergies and she was able to enjoy a great meal out. I hope to go back soon!

I recently went to this well-known eatery next to the VCU campus. I may have selected a bad time...7pm on a Friday. It was packed...literally. In the inner space of the restaurant the tables are joined together so there is little/no space between dining groups. The wood floors make for noise from foot traffic and moving chairs and tables. Plastic... More

You won't believe it is a restaurant, no markings on the glass door that leads you to a flight of stairs and the stairway doesn't smell great--continue the adventure because when you open what looks like a broom closet door you enter the most popular restaurant in Richmond or so it seems. People are standing and waiting for a table,... More

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
