    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.

  • A disappointing dinner
    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?
    Oncenawhile
    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 was with a group of 5. Everything we ordered ~ from wine to our entrees and desserts were top-notch delicious! We are in our 60's and 70's and could chat with each other without having to yell like in so many other places. Our visit,' was relaxing and extremely enjoyable ~ we will be back! And we will gladly recommend Mosiac tour friends and family. It also is in a great location ~ easily accessible from all parts of town.

    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.

Service excellent. Had them prepare a surprise birthday cake for my wife. Again, excellent! It was the perfect addition to the day, simply could not have been better. Can't wait to go back.

    The services left a lot to be desired. The restaurant was not busy when we arrived. The waiter was not very attentive. The sauce for one of the appetizers was missing. l had to wait a while for salad dressing. There was also an awkwardly long wait for credit cards to be returned when paying, especially since we saw the waiter pass our table several times. Finally, one of the people in our party had an extra charge on her card when she checked her account; management refunded the money after she called, but it was still an inconvenience.

    This restaurant incorporates a kid-friendly menu without compromising the experience for the adults. However the soothing, spacious atmosphere and speedy service kept kids calm and occupied. The seating and ambience is comfortable, with soft benches and pillows at the tables against the wall. My 2-year old was high enough to eat without a booster seat, then rest on a pillow while she waited for us to finish. The kids menu had at least 5-6 choices, including a breakfast macaroni and cheese. The portions for all of the meals were huge, allowing everyone to get different items and share. The staff is always attentive and expedient with getting us to a table and served (not a lot of down time for the kids to get restless).

    First, the positives: The waitress: very nice. Bicycle Spring Rolls were very good. The Shaved Steak Bahn Mi was disappointing, at best. Typical Bahn Mi is on hollowed out roll and full of veggies. This had a LOT of bread, with ends burned, and minimal fillings. Advertised candied jalapenos were just sliced. "Steak" was scraps which were full of fat, perhaps 1 oz. in total. Told waitress who said she'd tell manager. He never came to the table. After paying check, asked to speak to manager. 5 minutes later, waitress said he was coming. 4 minutes after that he ambled over. No apology. Wife said with his attitude, we're not likely to return. He said he was cooking. 3 chefs doing nothing w/ 3 tables filled could have covered to avoid us waiting

    As with many places, Mosaic was "OK"; the food was flavorful and well prepared, but nothing unique to the standard Richmond Sunday brunch milieu. But, I continue to be confused why a restaurant cannot serve food that is at most only warm. Even the grits, which were hardy and tasty, and which would seem to require no great effort to maintain and serve piping hot, arrived slightly warmer than skin temperature. We had to ask for bread. Their peach cobbler (also served only warm) didn't fit my definition of a cobbler, no pastry topping and I thought there was too much cinnamon. While I would not tell anyone not to go to Mosaic, it would not be on my must-try list. I would go back; everybody deserves a second chance. Just not real soon.
