When I walked into Belmont Food Shop I was the only person there. The employees I interacted with were all helpful and friendly. I ordered their watermelon soup and some pork. The soup wasn't exactly my thing: I did not feel that the flavors of the avocado and ginger meshed well with the watermelon. It wasn't bad, just lackluster at... More

This tiny place will blow you away! A steal with their $30 pre- fix.....appetizer,entrée,and dessert. Usually six items in each section....none ever disappoint. And the bar is lovely....made from found objects....and get a cocktail....excellent bar staff. Go with a date or a couple of friends.....have a great time!

Our visit was welcomed by two of the cutest hostesses ever. They were very friendly, attractive and professional in their role and did an amazing job taking care of the three of us. The place is located on a quaint street near downtown. It is small, very small and the setting is antique. A cute little bar is shadowed by... More

My family owned a sheep farm. We had lamb for Sunday dinner almost every week. My mother NEVER was able to do lamb like these folks. Every bite of the Lamb Duo sends you to another level of bliss! Finish the meal with the Chocolate Bouchon and you will be transported to places Timothy Leary never reached. Top all that... More

Go sit at the bar, order a cocktail and order from their always changing, creative pre-fix dinner. This place is quaint, delicious, with great people and great service. Also wonderful for large parties, they hosted a family birthday party and everything was so special.

The Richmond restaurant scene just keeps getting better and the Belmont Food Shop is another great addition. It's small and intimate, with an excellent creative menu that's written daily on a chalk board. The $35 for appetizer, entree and dessert is well worth every penny.The excellent wine and craft beer offerings are reasonably priced and the house drinks are as... More

Great setting, supper nice people working there. We (us 5) all had a nice conversation. My group seemed to like there their orders, but were we being nice? The octopus appetizer was great, but was it small? Not like Stellas, a hard piece of competition, no doubt. My rockfish was ok, but thin and slightly over cooked, maybe a bad... More

This is a very small story front restaurant just a couple of blocks from our B&B. The chef-owner is CIA trained, the menu is posted on a chalk board and changes according to season and what is fresh at the market. We loved the informality and the carefully prepared and delicious food. Especially surprising was a wonderful chicken entree with... More

This is an old neighborhood store front in the old part of Richmond with a small menu written on a chalk board as it changes daily. The food is not only interesting, but prepared to perfection. House specialty drinks are great, and the service is excellent.

My family went here for my grandmother's 80th birthday two nights ago and reserved the separate dining room on the side. I would highly recommend this restaurant for entertaining large groups as the private dining room is a perfect venue for just that. Decor is rustic and represents the area of town very well. We had a group of 13... More
