Best cocktails in Richmond. Bartender (I think the owner) made me three different drinks based on what I like to drink and each one was spectacular. Small place - arrive early for a seat at the bar.

My wife and I ate here during Richmond Restaurant Week. The bar menu is creative and impressive. Unfortunately, my wife's skate wing was mushy and not firm and grits tasted like vinegar, my pork butt was cooked so poorly I could not have told you what kind of meat it was. Our waiter asked us if we wanted coffee after... More

Using the restaurant's website, I booked a reservation via Open Table. An employee at Saison accidentally cancelled my reservation and when I received the notification email from Open Table, I immediately called to find out why. The employee cited difficulty between two versions of Open Table and said she had accidentally cancelled my Saturday night reservation when she had been... More

This is a typical Richmond restaurant in terms of style. Intimate with a solid bar. The food is wonderful. The service is terrific. The craft cocktails are spot on, and there is a solid wine list. It has taken us a while to get to this spot, but we loved it.

Excellent meal, cooked on the spot, reasonably priced. Cocktail was delish. The brussel sprout salad to die for. The type of small restaurant you find in Brooklyn.

Stopped in after dinner at Chez Foushee at this super cool establishment near the Quirk Hotel where we stayed for the weekend. The bartenders are awesome and know their craft. They the whiskey sour with whipped egg whites!

We stopped by for a quick early bite. This was our first visit. I had their special version of huevos rancheros. My husband had the chicken sandwich. Both were good. We ate in small seating area next to the wine display. We were comfortable and relaxed. The staff was super friendly and helpful. I would recommend it for a very... More

Went to Saison last night with some friends - my first (but not last!) visit - and I'm already feeling guilty for waiting so long! From the appetizer (Brussels sprouts roasted with, among other ingredients, pistachios) to the entrees (we were too full to attempt dessert), it was quite a feast. We two guys had the Rockfish, done to perfection... More

Our meal at Saison was so wonderful, from the cocktails to the jalapeno bread to the entrees. It was crowded and a bit noisy, but the wait staff checked in on us frequently and offered us a seat at the bar while our table was not yet ready. The oxtail sopas and the Rundown seafood coconut soup were simply incredible.... More
