Richmond Gem!I travel to Richmond on a regular basis and have thus far been disappointed with the dining experiences I've had downtown. Chez Foushee was the exception. The service was excellent and the food was really very good. There were several items on the menu that appealed to me and I was delighted with my choice of the scallops over spinach risotto. The wine list, though small was comprehensive. I would definitely return and recommend Chez Foushee to friends/colleagues.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMPhenomenal Find!We booked Chez Foushee as a group of 10 for brunch. From start to finish, the food, service, and ambiance was perfect! I had the BEST poached eggs of my life there, and everyone kept raving about the shrimp creole and green chili grits. We'll most definitely come back again. Highly recommended!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was fantastic fromEverything was fantastic from beginning to end. The wait staff, the food, the drinks, the wine. My husband and I enjoyed our date night immensely. He's still talking about it! I have a feeling we'll be headed to Chez Foushee again sooner rather than later!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst TimeThis was my first time there and we shared it with Foushee veterans. The menu is great with something a little different and each prepared very well. My duck breast was above average. Beverages are a little pricey. Wine selection limited but acceptable. Their lemon cake was very good although it was too close to cheese cake for my taste. Our service was stellar. Friendly and very efficient. Best part of the experience. I would go back and use it for a special occasion. Noisey.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful First Time ExperienceWhat a treasure. Had heard good things about this Restaurant but had not been there even though have lived in Richmond for several years. A wonderful menu, service, met the owner who came to the table to make sure we had good service and food.
Near the November Theater so a great place for dinng before going to the theater. Food was excellent. The best duck presentaton I had ever had. The choclolate molten lave dessert was to die for.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMLike dining with great friendsFormore than a decade, Chez Foushee has been my first choice for a nice lunch with friends or an important business lunch. Now my husband and I go fir art walk nights out. The food is consistently excellent and ranges from homey to elegant, so you can choose what suits your mood. The service is always wonderful, and the staff goes out of their way to make you feel right at home. I love it at Chez Foushee, it is a respite and a reward.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe found a new place !Had passed by several time never stopped but knew it had a good reputation. When Mothers day plans fell through I booked it through OT at the last minute. Needless to say it was a complete hit. The food was excellent with the service to match.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWow!The food and service in this small cozy restaurant was amazing! I had the crab am
cakes with poached eggs and the lemon butter pie for dessert. The waiter was attentive and friendly. We will be back soon.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNew favorite restaurant!My friend and I first ate at Chrz Foushee durin Richmind restaurant week and it was the best the place we ate at. We really enjoyed the menu selection and were surprised at how much we enjoed everything we ordered. I came back for the Mothers Day brunch and my mother really enjoyed herself. We had a 3-course meal and took home dessert for later. Yea... We're little piggies. The place is a little pricey but I definitely recommend treating yourself to Chez Foushee.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMtoasted gnocchi & a terrific serverWhat a nice place--we had been there previously. Despite it being a VERY BUSY Saturday evening--graduation, mothers day weekend---our server was absolutely terrific; very warm, attentive and friendly, and completely unhurried.
I gave the food 4 stars only because the menu lacked vegetarian or vegan items. The gnocchi was really the only entree that was veg. but it was really delicious!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMCharming restaurant. VeryCharming restaurant. Very comfortable for 2 or 10. Great ambiance. Nice little bar area. Not too big but you don't feel crowded. Service was a little slow but efficient. On the flip side never felt rushed which was pleasant change from other busy restaurants.
Lovely presentation of food. Some dishes tended to be a little over salted. Would definitely come back and recommend to others.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOur Favorite spot!!Never a disappointment! As always a wonderful place to dine. My husband and I love to bring friends and family, especially if they have never eaten at Chez Foushee. This time we had the Shrimp & Grits-Outstanding! At my suggestion, one of our guests tried the Brussel Sptout Salad and loved it! And of course we all had the Lemon Butter Cake! What also makes this a very special place to dine is the outstanding service from Chuck, Joshua and Jeremy. This time we had Jeremy; he is a delight and very knowledgeable about the menu; our guests were very impressed with the entire experience!-A good time was had by all!!4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was good and theThe food was good and the service was good. I went for restaurant week and although the waiter was very nice, he spent no time explaining the food options. Had I known a little more about the various menu items, I would have made different selections.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOnce again, after innumerableOnce again, after innumerable visits, this is one of the finest restaurants in Richmond. The food is superb and reasonably priced. The staff is simply outstanding; they work very well as a team and very much enjoy their restaurant and their jobs.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWent during restaurant week,Went during restaurant week, so the offerings were limited. Still, we enjoyed everything we tried - shrimp roumalade, cream spinach soup and mixed salad with beet chips and goat cheese for appetizers; blackened mahi-mahi, cod, and chicken for entrees; mousse, cheese cake and lemon thingy for dessert. Wine list is very short, but prices are reasonable. Service was great; Dennis took good care of us. The restaurant has a simple but interesting interior with three or four levels and slowly turning fans. Classy but not fussy. However, everything is bare wood and glass, so it got really, really noisy. Luckily we were there early, so by the time it filled up and got to shouting level, we were leaving. Still, overall a very nice experience.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMChez FousheeNice food, great service, and friendly staff. I must return!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurant has a reallyThe restaurant has a really nice ambience, although I wouldn't go there for a nice quiet dinner. The fish entree was good but I didn't realize it would be spicy or I would have made another choice. The chocolate mousse cake was excellent, as good as I have had anywhere. The service was very good and the whole staff was very friendly. There is free parking in the lot next door which is very convenient. I will definitely go back again.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMVisiting Richmond with myVisiting Richmond with my wife. Looking for a romantic restaurant with good food within walking distance from our hotel. We arrived before anyone else but by 5:30, it was filling up. Great service. Food was very good, serving size was portioned well. Clean inside, nice ambiance. Most importantly, my wife loved it and asked me where I had heard of it. I found it on the internet searching restaurants. Good selection of mixed drinks from the bar with an adequate wine list. I ordered a second lemon dessert because it was so good. Coffee was strong and very good. I will go back if I am in Richmond again.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThat signature dessert isThat signature dessert is the best thing I have ever eaten. Wow.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Experience!Restaurant week menu was delicious and the restaurant is absolutely beautiful.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous!We went with another couple during Richmond's restaurant week. We had a fabulous 3 course meal and one of the best wines I've had. We planned to get one bottle and completely finished two. Everything else was perfect, too- service, noise level, and ambience. We're in our mid-60's, and there was a much younger crowd. I don't know whether that was due to restaurant week, or they are the typical guests.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe took a co-worker thereWe took a co-worker there for a birthday lunch and it was a first time there for most of us. The service and food were amazing! The Mediterranean Tuna salad was delicious..I highly recommended trying this is you have not been there!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe shrimp and cheese gritsThe shrimp and cheese grits were very good but our server forgot the garlic toast that came with it. He did it bring later and was nice addition to dish! The Bloody Mary drinks were excellent and the eggs for brunch were very good. Would definitely go back.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMDuckyWonderful.

The brusselsFabulous food. The brussels sprouts salad is phenomenal. We had a great waiter who was very attentive and cognizant of time constraints (we had tickets to the Richmond Forum and needed to be ready to leave at a certain time).4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe interior is quite beautifulThe interior is quite beautiful and exterior is striking. Staff was all very friendly. Just wish the food matched. Went there for a birthday dinner. Duck and steak undercooked and not properly seasoned. Toffee pudding was great though. Would give it a second try.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMNew Orleans in RichmondHaving lived in Richmond for over twenty-five years I had heard of Chez Foushee, but never partaken. With my wife just coming into town I went looking for a nice, but quiet, location for dinner. Chez Foushee popped up on Open Table and seemed just what I wante.
The atmosphere was very much like a New Orleans restaurant. The multileveled dining room was very nice for being above the crowd while not being too far away.
A very nice menu gave my wife and I the idea that we would be returning.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was good. Loved ourFood was good. Loved our waiter and the bartender.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA must-do in Richmond!There are a lot of good restaurants in Richmond. The city is big on food, and has many wonderful places to eat. But there are only a handful of truly excellent restaurants, and Chez Foushee is one of these.
Their menu is incredibly creative, with elements of French, Italian and Farm-to-Table. Our party of 6 enjoyed the duck, pork, gnocchi, and roasted brussels sprout salad, and all were just amazing. Save room for dessert, because their lemon cake and toffee pudding are too good to miss. The wine list is impressive, service excellent, and atmosphere comfortable and relaxing.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMInformal eleganceVery pleasant dining experience! Not pretentious, in fact the menu comes across as being somewhat modest, but the food was both perfectly prepared and surprisingly creative with flavor! For a casual pre-theatre dinner it was a great choice- we mentioned on arrival that we had theatre tickets, and the waitstaff paced the delivery perfectly, reminding us when time was getting on. We so enjoyed the delicious servings and the comfortable ambiance that we just missed the curtain, all fault on ourselves. We loved the mussels and the smoked fish/brie fondue appetizers, and the main dishes were truly memorable. We will definitely return!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWow! What a find. This isWow! What a find. This is an excellent example of how to serve, prepare and present food. This was the friendliest restaurant we have been in. The management was right out front and really interested in how your experience was. They seemed genuinely pleased that you came to their establishment. The food was excellent, the service was outstanding but the desserts were the hit of the night.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice evening...good foodVery nice evening...good food choices..we had tickets to theatre and we let them know when they seated us....great timing and we were never rushed...3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my favorite restaurantsWe had dinner at Chez Foushee on Saturday and it was one of the best meals we've had in a long time. I had the cornish hen (one of the specials), and my husband had the duck. Both were unbelievably good. I also started with the Warm Brie and Smoked Fish Fondue, which had an amazing flavor. The service is top notch and very friendly - great atmosphere. I highly recommend Chez Foushee for brunch, lunch and especially dinner.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMOur meal this last FridayOur meal this last Friday was outstanding! There were 4 of us--and we were just floored ONCE AGAIN with the wonderful and varied menu selections! It was hard to choose! So our waiter Joshua (who was phenomenal--he took so much time in explaining the specials and making suggestions--far above what I have ever seen in any restaurant)--he brought 4 apps--all delicious! The food, ambience, drinks, wine--unmatched! It's truly our favorite place in Richmond! The chef does amazing flavors for the food! And please keep all of those dessert choices on the menu! They are stellar! Thank you once again for making our evening perfect!!!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMA terrific restaurant in aA terrific restaurant in a 'transitional' neighborhood. We walked several blocks to get to Chez Foushee from our hotel and we were a little concerned about some of the blocks that we went through, I have to admit.
Once we got there, what a surprise. It has a kind of Oriental/Turkish facade with a very traditional, upscale interior.
Both our meals were terrific and our waiter (Jeremy?) was helpful, knowledgable and prompt. Unfortunately, our visit was several weeks ago and I can't remember the details, but we know that we were very happy that we made the trek to get there!
If we're ever in Richmond again, we will return for sure.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic dinner... one ofFantastic dinner... one of the best I've had in Richmond over the past 12 years. The brussels sprout salad was amazing and my duck over spaetzle was delicious. Can't wait to come back.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMJust a nice comfortable placeJust a nice comfortable place to have dinner.
