Attractive restaurant in Richmond's Shockoe Bottom District with skilled service and quality ingredients. Food, however, had issues. Arugula salad was waterlogged in a strong vinaigrette dressing.

Came here from Washington for a Sunday brunch with friends. The atmosphere was nice, but the food was even better. The price, after getting used to DC prices, was very welcome. I recommend this place highly.

This restaurant is privately owned for two years by John Van Peppen. His wife does a lot of the cooking. Our lunch was extraordinarily good and creative. My BBQ beef sandwich was smoked at the restaurant and served on a wonderful Challah bun. My husband's...More
