My husband and I went here for lunch one weekend. He goes here a lot for work stuff and wanted me to try it. It is a very small restaurant so the tables are a little cramped. It has a rustic feel to it. It wasn't crowded thankfully. They have a more limited menu for lunch as most places do.... More

We love Edo's and always have good experiences. We landed here on New Years Eve with a party of 8 and, as always, they delivered amazing food and excellent customer service. We ordered calamari and pan-seared scallops for appetizers, both of which were perfectly cooked. We shared four dishes, family style, and loved everything we had. Our server was on... More

Almost a hole-in-the-wall, upstairs dining room. Good beverage list, and amazing Italian food. You can't go wrong with anything here, so feel free to explore. Expect a wait on the weekends.

I am in restaurants 5-8 times a week for business. We went to Edo Squid for a family birthday. I ordered the Hanger steak and when it came, it was just to raw for me to eat. I nicely asked the waitress if they could put it back on and heat it a little bit more, she sort of made... More

Ed knows how to cook. The place is small and interestingly romantic. Can be loud but not distracting. The food is excellent. Mussels are delicious.

This restaurant has a devoted and vocal following in the community, so I was looking forward to giving it a try. On the Saturday evening after Thanksgiving, the place was packed. We had a reservation for 7:15 and was seated at 8:05. The noise level fell somewhere between laundromat and bowling alley. Service was cordial and competent bu harried by... More

Our exchange student from Bologna, Italy said that Edo Squid was good as any restaurant in Italy. I can only say it's better than any Italian restaurant in Richmond. There's nothing comparable to their eggplant parmesan or their broccoli rape. My wife always enjoys their seafood linguine. Check their schedule, make reservations, and get there early. It's not very large... More

The entrance is grubby and unattractive. The stairs would be impossible for anyone with health problems. The staff are friendly and overworked. The menu is mostly on the wall in rather small writing so you have to get up from your seat to read it. My husband said his duck was excellent. My chicken was edible but both dishes had... More

This place is definitely different. First, you need to go up two long flights of VERY steep stairs...not acceptable for the elderly or infirmed. The place is NOISY, not in keeping with the very dim lighting (bring a flashlight if you are over 50 to read the menu), and quaint atmosphere they would like to create. They have attitude! They...
