Decided to go out for a weekday date night here. My wife had heard good things about it so why not try it. Walked right in and got a table without a reservation in under 5 minutes (6 or more needed for a reservation). There were a lot of items on the menu that sounded really good so we decided to get a couple things and share. The food had a very nice plate appearance but we both thought the food overall was hit and miss. We had a couple really good dishes and a couple completely average dishes. a couple nice things were the selection of local and semi-local beers available and the vibe and feel of the place inside.

My husband and I ventured out to this new restaurant with another couple on a busy Saturday evening. We waited about five minutes and were seated with no issues. I really like the ambiance of this restaurant, for Richmond it is very chic and modern. The Sex on tap was the ladies choice for drink of the evening, always a fav of ours. Our table got multiple dishes and basically passed them around, so I got to try quite a few dishes. My favorite of the evening was the basil beef. The basil was so fresh and really complimented the rest of the dish nicely. Some other notable dishes are the firecracker shrimp (very spicy but yummy!), and the five spice ribs. I am not a rib fan at all but the meat just fell off the bone on these ribs, and the flavor was good too. We split the pumpkin cheesecake four ways, which was to die for. Very good dinner experience, comparable in price to PF Changs, but beat out Changs in flavor and atmosphere. Great draught beer selection too. Will definitely be going back.
