    Mosaic is one of my favorite restaurants in the neighborhood. The food selection may change but it is always excellent. I dine at Mosaic very often and recommend it to friends and family. I was hoping to have brunch but it wasn't offered on Saturday. That is one change I would like to see.

    Qualifiers: I'm a vegetarian and it was Restaurant Week. There was no vegetarian entree available. The pumpkin soup was bland. The mushroom filling of the raviolis was excellent, but there was far too much pasta (which was thick and very undercooked/hard). The pumpkin tiramisu was really just pumpkin mousse with two hard, store-bought gingersnaps. I had the impression that, while the chef made an effort to provide seasonal options, either the results weren't taste-tested or it was a half-hearted effort.

    4 girlfriends met here for supper to catch up and the atmosphere is perfect for that - not too loud but not so quiet you don't feel you can laugh out loud. I ordered the special which was cornmeal crusted flounder ( fresh) over spaghetti squash. I would not have necessarily come up with this combo but love both so decided to give it a try. It was fabulous. The fish was fresh and cooked perfectly. The spaghetti squash was delicious and the whole thing was sitting in a lovely little pool of some lemony sauce which was the perfect addition. Our service was great attentive without hovering for girls who were not in a rush!

    So, the food was good, as always. We went to try the fall menu. We were outside, first, and it started raining. The waiter said he was getting wet and could we move it. We complied. The waiter lost our orders, complained about the rain, forgot the drink order and asked about 45 minutes in - after we changed tables so he would not be wet! if we might want some "bread or somethin". He did not ask for a dessert order or coffee and told us the special had "ozo" in it. I had to ask if it was orzo... he did not know. Will go back b/c of menu and all the vegetarian offerings... hard to find in this city.

    I've been there several times - very good every time. Nice wine on happy hours special. The "fit" menu is wonderful!! All items are 450 cal and very flavorful!! The portions are smaller than what the folks who what "big plates for the money"...but I like that. The portions are just perfect. Add a side or share an app if you have a bigger appetite - you will love anything you select at this place!!....oh, and the spring rolls are very yummy!

    I had not been to Mosaics for a while and was pleasantly surprised at the nice variety of items offered for brunch and lunch. I had a hard time deciding what to order as many things looked great. I had the Fried Green Tomato BLT and it was outstanding. On the side I ordered fresh fruit which was definitely fresh and delicious. I will definitely go back again . . . and soon!

    I'm a Mosaic fan in general- I love the food and have always had great service from my waiter/waitress. However my bone to pick is that they don't EVER seem to account for the requests made when making a reservation. As a former hostess at a very popular restaurant in Richmond, I can tell you that these requests (while a request, not a definite promise) can make or break a dining experience. Even if we were not able to give the patron the request immediately, we would do our best to do so ASAP. Mosaic does not seem to have the same mindset. Two times now I've made reservations and requested a booth, not a difficult request, and neither time did they honor it NOR even acknowledge my request. They simply sat me at a table and walked away.

    We had just finished a quick swim and came in for some appetizers. Catherine is our go to waitress and we always enjoy her great service. She brought us the pail of chips with the truffle dip, corn relish and deviled eggs. My friend who graduated from culinary school in France was delighted with everything we ate. Consistently excellent food.

    FlldinersVIP
    Dined on 8/29/2014
    For what it costs, the dinner was very disappointing. We both ordered crab cakes ($24) which were full of fillers and had very little crab. The crab cakes were over some sort of mashed potatoes and surrounded by a string mustard sauce. The sauce was way overpowering. I could not eat it all. The service was good but I probably won't go back any time soon

  • Why make a reservation?

    Dined on 8/28/2014
    I made a reservation for 3 for dinner so we could celebrate our daughter's birthday. We arrived on time. There were very few people there at the time. We were immediately seated at a table beside where the dirty dishes were placed when tables were bussed & behind the small door that led to the back of the bar area. It was ugly & not at all appetizing. I asked if we could be moved & was told we could go to the other end...by the bathrooms. I asked why would I bother to make a reservation if my seating choices were dirty dishes or the John. We were then seated up front. We had a nice table & our server was fantastic. She knew her stuff, took great care of us, & was so very kind to our daughter. The food, as always, was terrific.

    Our party of 5 women had waited longer than expected for our cocktais. Our waitress spilled a glass of red wine on our table splashing three of us (all three were wearing white pants). She apologized. The manager came to help clean up the mess. He offered to pay for dry cleaning. At the end of the meal we had expected some sort of compensation on our checks. There was none. Incidently, the red wine was not ordered by anyone at our table.

    Mosaic has something for the clean eaters, most traditional eaters, and those who like to experience new dishes. I went there with people from my office who have very different tastes in dining. Everyone enjoyed their meal.Wait staff was pleasant but they were having some technology problems, not waitress fault. I will recommend for my Book Club - we have vegetarian and South Beach dieters.

    I love Mosaic for lunch and dinner. The menu is well-thought and has quite a few options for the super fit type of diner (among others) and they all taste great! On the other hand, once you are finished being fit, you can choose from a great selection of desserts. I judge a lunch restaurant by the quality of its ice tea, and Mosaic's is the best. Reliable service, great local atmosphere and close to a number of fun shops to walk into before or after. Great location next to the University of Richmond, Country Club of Virginia, River Road corridor, and Westhampton area. Close to the bridge for the southside too. My favorite lunch spot in RVA.

    Have to say I was disappointed with this. I had it off the food truck at Hardwood and it was not bad. This seemed too cheesy. Also the Bloody Mary's were too spicy. If you have an area to add extras to the Bloody Mary's, make the glass big enough. Should have seen my friend carrying bacon in his hand cuz it wouldn't fit. Over priced for what we had. I'll look elsewhere for shrimp & grits.
