This restaurant is unique and everything on the menu is delicious! If you like duck it is definitely the place to go but they also have amazing seafood dishes. They have craft cocktails that are wonderful. The staff is super friendly and it is a...great place for a date night.More

We did have to wait a long time to get our appetizers, but once food started coming to the table we were very happy. Don't come here if you're in a hurry. Service was very friendly, just slow. Next time we would pass on the...appetizers because it was really the entrees that were exceptional. The she crab soup and Caesar salad weren't really anything special. The bread is delicious though and a good choice if you need something to nibble while you wait for your entrées. We had the duck breast and shrimp and grits. Both dishes were fantastic. The duck breast was the best duck I've ever had and the vegetables that accompanied it were amazing as well. It all paired nicely with a glass of the red blend wine that they had. We appreciated that they have a kids menu. We all enjoyed the delicious homemade ice cream for dessert. The atmosphere is upscale but casual. We would definitely visit The Shaved Duck again.More

Very nice, modern restaurant with a menu that includes several duck dishes, as well as great seafood . The she crab soup and mussels are very good, as was the duck leg dish. Excellent service, full bar, ample parking, and a large room for meetings...or receptions.More

We loved everything about this place. The food was original and delicious, the cocktails were high-quality and our server was very well-versed in giving us suggestions.

We met friends for dinner, and we were fortunate to arrive during happy hour. The Fried Green Napoleon was absolutely amazing. Think of it as a fried green tomato sandwich with pimento cheese in the middle. We partook in several cocktails as well. The Fresno...Rita, Orange Crush, Lemoncello, and Smoked Old Fashioned. The cocktail menu is a curated, elevated experience. I really cannot say enough about this restaurant. The food and service is always consistently awesome. This is definitely a place we like to bring out of town guests to showcase the best of Midlothian.More

We had been curious about The Shaved Duck for quite some time. We were able to sample their food at the Magnificent Midlothian Food Festival, and were quite impressed. We finally made it in for a meal with friends that were visiting from out of...town. The menu is on the petite side, but each entree is deliberate in that they all have a uniqueness that chain restaurants generally lack. For appetizers we ordered fried green tomatoes and the pimento cheese small plate. Both were flavorful and large enough for four adults to share. Even though we ordered burgers, these were elevated. The cheeseburger was served with a delicious onion jam. The other burger was a duck burger with pimento cheese added. The fries were wonderful as well. Our dining companions ordered duck tacos and steak tartare. The service was also wonderful. Everyone was very hospitable and made us feel welcome, and that our business was appreciated. We will definitely return.More

Went here with family to celebrate matriarch’s birthday on recommendation of neighbors of our daughter. Checked out the website before going, website looks like restaurant is somewhat formal but it is located in a storefront in strip type mall and was pleasantly unpretentious. Server “Ryan”...was very pleasant and informative. Service and food were excellent.More

Went there last week and had a very mediocre meal at best that was significantly overpriced for what we had. We had two apps, four entrees, but no dessert. The duck burger was quite dry and lacked flavor. Nothing stood out. The meal wasn't terrible,...but there are many other restaurants with better food for far less money. All four of were unimpressed.More

Finally got to the Shaved Duck and glad we did. Some excellent unusual menu items without overdoing the “ in vogue ingredients “! The Duck Wings are outstanding, along with the She Crab Soup....where you can actually see and taste the crab!! Cuban Sandwich was...good, but not excellent to our taste anyway. The local, caring and personable bartender makes his excellent version of an Old Fashion and it’s only $6 or $7 during Happy Hours.More

Let’s start with the good: she crab soup was great - served plenty warm and loaded with crabmeat. Service was slow because kitchen couldn’t keep up and it was only about half full at 7 pm. It took 50 minutes from when we walked in...to get our entree. Duck burger was pretty good, chicken prosciutto was bland and without the balsamic sauce to dip it in would have been a total failure. Risotto was not good either. For $100 for 2 with total of 3 drinks, this was overpriced considering quality and slow service. Interesting that the other restaurants nearby are very busy - but not this one.More

I've visited many local Richmond restaurants - some had tremendous food and others wonderful atmosphere. But none of them marry a combination of delectable menu items with unpretentious attitude and a comfort level like The Shaved Duck Restaurant. Staff has proven their mettle; from the...custom-made bitters crafted by Craig behind the bar to the delicious aromas from head chef Patrick Wrenn's kitchen and the wonderfully skilled presentation of the desserts by their in-house baking team. The menu is perfectly sublime; from the artfully crafted cocktails and portioned appetizers to the tantalizing flavors created on the entrees and the sweet but understated dessert course, we enjoyed every sip, bite, and dip! The Shaved Duck Restaurant is maturing into a wonderful location for a quiet dinner with your loved one, a small group, or even a business function. The quality of the food would suggest a much higher price, but the value and experience make The Shaved Duck Restaurant a tremendous experience. You'll not be disappointed!More

The Shaved Duck is a very welcome addition to the food choices in Westchester. Its menu is short, with some seasonal variety. We had pork risotto topped with a poached egg (me) and Caesar salad (my wife). We were there during happy hour and enjoyed...the roasted Brussels sprouts with chili peppers. They are worth trying even at full price. Lauren provided very knowledgeable service at our anniversary dinner. But something went amiss with our daughter’s surprise gift of a glass of champagne and dessert—we never heard about it until she texted us the next day to ask how we liked it. That flaw will certainly not keep us from returning, however.More
