I was very impressed. The location is a little unfortunate (behind a pizza hut), but the overall experience was excellent. The menu is short (helpfully so) yet broad, being sure to cover at least one thing on everyone's pallet. The wine/beverage list is also minimalist, but is not lacking anything important. The food was excellent. For the price, this place is hard to beat.

Although we have eaten at
Although we have eaten at 805 on numerous occaisons, we went specially for Restaurant Week because the special menue offered entrees that are not usually on the menu. Our party of 4 tried 3 different entrees and we agreed, they were all delicious. Their talented chef not only can produce the old stand-by's consistently well but enjoys the challenge of producing different dishes. 805 has a lot to offer both from the regular menu and from their specials. The service is always friendly and professional.

The food and service was really good, however the overall ambiance was somewhat lacking. It was clean and nice, but there wasn't anything WOW about the restaurant.

Though I lived in the Fan
Though I lived in the Fan for many years, it has been 30 years since I frequented many restaurants there on a regular basis. I have now found a reason to go back more often. The food and service were just the type for both the tastes of my wife and myself, we have found a new Italian restaurant worth the effort to go out of our immediate area.

I went for restaurant week
I went for restaurant week with a friend and the pork medallions were melt in your mouth. The seafood stew was flavorful as was the lamb meatballs but nether one of us were impressed with our deserts and we would not order them again. We would return to try the regular menu.

Pleased with our dining experience
My husband and I went there for our date night and wanted to experience Restaurant Week. We had a pleasurable dining experience. The lamb meatballs for our appetizer were excellent. He had the pork tenderloin and I had the ravioli. Service was good. We will definetly go back.

the food and service were excellant - but a big detractor was a table of four women next to us who were unusually loud - one of whom had a particularly raucous, unpleasant voice. while i realize neither she nor the restaurant can do anything about that - it was a distractor. one of our party wears hearing aids and it was most unpleasant for him.

Good quality for Price
Went there for Mother's Day brunch for the first time. The food was good and affordable (most everything around $10 or less) had to wait about 35 mins for food after ordering, but not bad for being a holiday.

We were meeting friends for brunch and Richmond happened to be halfway.
Found the 805 on Open Table and were terribly pleased with everything.
We arrived about 5 minutes early for an 11:00 reservation. (The restaurant opens at 11) Seeing us waiting outside, they opened the door and invited us in.
Service was impeccable, the food delightful, and the Bloody Mary bar fantastic. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a Sunday Brunch and we'll make a point of trying them out for dinner one evening.

Romantic Night Out
When my husband and I need some quiet alone time, Avenue 805 is perfect. The food and service are consistently good and we are never rushed through our meal.

We went for the Wednesday special of all-you-can-eat mussels and frites for $12.The mussels were huge and filling. The foucacca bread that comes with it was quite tasty and perfect for dipping in the mussel broth. We both choose the white sauce. We had seconds, of course! I highly recommend Avenue 805. Also, on Monday and Tuesday they offer cheap date night. Two meals and a bottle of wine for $35. You can't go wrong at this wonderful spot in the Fan. Oh, and on-street parking is plentiful - always a plus!

Always good food with daily specials. Food was brought hot and freshly made and very flavorable! I have been here several times and I have always happy with our experience and food.

Whenever my wife doesn't feel like cooking, we head to Avenue 805 and order the date-night special - she not only gets that night off but the following night as well. The special has enough pasta to feed a small army (or at least 2 senior citizens) for two nights! And, comes with a full bottle of wine - again, enough for us for 2 nights. And, did I mention that the food is delicious? This is a wonderful restaurant and both the specials and the regular, full, menu have many delicious offerings.
