My wife and I were here during restaurant week. our food was amazing and we opted for a wine pairing. The owner came out before each course and delivered our wine describing each glass and how it paired with each course. He was spot on every time. Our wine pairing was $15,00 for three glasses. Theres nothing else like it... More

Intimate French restaurant and wine bistro. Love happy hour at the bar to sample new French wines and excellent small plates and appetizers. Knowledgeable and personable staff who make you feel at home. Great place for after work wind down or quiet dinner.

The escargot is the best I ever have had and I have been all around the world. You will be missing a good bet if you do not order this item. The warm salad with the duck confit was also excellent. Did not try dessert as we were too full Excellent service topped off the experience.

Amour is a small intimate french bistro wine bar. The selection of wine is very french with some excellent choices avaliable.

He is very good at educating you also about the differences in the... More

Everything from start to finish exceeded all expectations! Oysters, escargot, steak, duck, apple cake, chocolate creme brule, and raspberry sorbet. This small intimate French Bistro was superb. Service by a young lady was excellent and the owner was most helpful with wine pairings. A special restaurant for a special occasion. My wife's birthday and she is still talking about Armour...

We happened upon this restaurant using Google and Tripadvisor after finishing our visit at the nearby Virginia Museum of Fine Art. We had a most wonderful, leisurely stay with a fantastic selection of wines and beautifully prepared food. This was the culinary highlight of our trip! The owner, yes, is French and loves to interact regarding wine and food pairings.... More
