First time at Belle and we were not disappointed. We had to make our reservations a bit earlier at the last minute and were nicely accommodated. Service was outstanding and prompt. The food needs to be good of course but I really put an emphasis...on service and was very impressed. The Beignets and Shrimp Po Boy were awesome and this is after just coming from a stay in New Orleans.The Mac and Cheese side dish was also awesome. Heck, it was all good!More

The salmon was a most tasty surprise, the burger just fine, the side dishes enjoyable. There was some noise from the bar and a large party, but nothing so much to detract from the great location, good service, and very reasonable prices. We will return...on our next visit!More

We were there on a weeknight and the bar was busy but we were one of only a few tables eating. Service was very good and food was fine. Bar was really noisy.

Where to start.... Coming from Boston to Richmond to my sons wedding this past weekend. We had about 40 people flying in and lots of moving parts. Let me just say how amazing Ro and her staff at Belle was. First the food was amazing,...we had three choices to pick from the menu and all was fantastic. I had the filet which was out of this world. Ro had beautiful fresh flowers on all the tables and even offered a signature drink. She put everything together and it was so smooth ( who knew about the stress getting to this point) Ro took all the stress off my plate and made the whole evening flawless! The bartenders and wait were so nice and really made us feel so welcoming. I cant say enough about this amazing place! If you need a place for a venue please look into Belle its a beautiful venue!More

We arrived in the late afternoon to stay at the Homewood Suites (which was in an office building with Hampton Inn and the Post Office and Belle). There was not much open in the area on a Saturday night so we decided to take our...chances with Belle. Jackpot! I had the Jambalaya and my wife had the Tomato Grilled Cheese with Sidewinder Fries. Not only were the dishes beautifully presented, they were also delicious. The service was excellent and the restaurant itself was nice.More

Forgot to post a review of Belle while I was in Richmond. It shares an entrance with the Hampton Inn I was staying in and I went one night and the server, Hannah, said the kitchen was already closed but they would be open for...lunch the next day. So I went for lunch the next day and it was SO good! I had the pimento cheese beignets. They were so delicious! If you like pimento cheese, I think you’ll love these. They also have pimento cheese Mac & cheese that was amazing...so gooey and cheesy. That was the side that I got with my grilled cheese and tomato sandwich. Obviously I couldn’t finish all of my food, but it was all so good. The bread was grilled just right and the cheese was once again melty and so cheesy. It was a definite carb overload...but I enjoyed it immensely. Hannah was my server and I’m not sure if it was Hannah H or Hannah B bc in another review I have both names. But she was a sweet young girl with platinum blonde hair. She was so helpful with recommendations of places to go the night I came there and the kitchen was already closed. She was friendly and was knowledgeable of the area. I will definitely come back to Belle the next time I’m in Richmond.More

Stopped in for a nightcap and we’re so pleased to meet Nasib - such a friendly, skilled bartender! And made wonderful classic cocktails - old fashioned, last word! Great place!

The restaurant is next to the hotel where I was staying on a business trip. I only ate here twice while in town for 4 weeks. Both times the food was amazing, the service is slow but that is because everything is cooked to order...in a very small kitchen. I had the adult grilled cheese sandwich on one visit and the second visit was during restaurant week and was a fixed menu. I wish I had taken photos of the food it was awesome. If I have to go back to Richmond this is another place I will revisit for another meal.More

The food was Excellent. The server was very nice and friendly, but I think he was the only one with about 10 different tables. He was just busy. Good place to try if you are traveling through.

I worked in the fine food and beverage industry in NoVa and DC for many years, that being said, it takes more than run of the mill quality cuisine and drinks to pique my interest. We stumbled across this place by accident, as our friends...wanted to eat at another place across the way but the wait was too long, as we had a concert to get to. We walked in, on a Friday at 7, and they accommodated us very quickly. The food was fantastic! So many places serve shrimp and grits these days but thus place did the dish true justice. The grits were hearty, a little sweet, and creamy. The shrimp were huge and perfectly cooked - not overdone or chewy. Then that drink menu...so many great cocktails to choose from. I can’t remember it’s name but I had something with sorbet and basil in it that was so unique and yummy. I also had some very good Prosecco for only $7 a glass...what a deal and at such a nice place! We finished off with two desserts (because we couldn’t decide) and both the mousse and creme brûlée cheesecake were outstanding. I can’t believe this place wasn’t busier at that time on a Friday because it was fantastic!More
