The food and service were excellent my only complaint was how far away the booth seats were from the table.

Best of Richmond, hands down
M bistro, should be M, 5 star, honestly is the Best food in Richmond, we've tried most, travel often and try restaurants wherever we go. Original, fresh, and prepared perfectly. You are doing yourself a disservice to say you like good food and not try this. This guy would easily win top chef!!!!!Easily crushes anything else around here in pure taste, quality and awesomeness.Wish I had been goin for years, sad this was just the first time, but hope 1 of many enjoyable evenings.

The food was great! We especially
The food was great! We especially liked the Cat Sea Pig and the Lime coconut Tilapia. The fried chocolate cake was an unexpected delicious surprise.
We were sorry that the tables were so close together. Don't know if it was because of Restaurant Week. We were disappointed that the website was not up to date. We had picked out several interesting wines before we got to the restaurant. Then, none of them were on the wine list. This was our first visit. We will be back!

Mother's Day Gem
Took my mom for Mother's Day brunch. She absolutely loved the place and she's been a complainer all her life. Fell in love with the no filler crab, said salmon was the best she ever had, and she really wanted to lick the plates but would have been embarrassed. It was very enjoyable. We had 3 courses, all exceptional, and there was a nice selection to chose from - something for everyone. My own daughter has forced me into fancy restaurants in New York and Chicago before and I was always disappointed with the food, especially for the high prices. This was well worth the money and I can say one of the best I've ever been to.

We decided to go to M Bistro for Mother's Day brunch when our other choices were booked and the M Bistro reviews were strong. We were not disappointed. There was a pre fix 3 course menu for Mother's Day, and there was something for everyone in our party in the selections. The plates came out and we thought they looked a little skimpy, but we realized that ended up being our normal expectation of the 3 serving meal other restaurants serve! The servings were the perfect size, enough to satisfy and allow you to enjoy the incredible flavors! I absolutely loved the corn chowder lobster risotto! My husband and I plan to go back for dinner on a date night. I recommend giving it a try!

Great food! Average wine
My wife and I went for the first time last Saturday with another couple. Service was quite friendly, if a little unattentive. Cocktails were all way too sweet, and the wine list was just average. But having said all that, I would definitely go back. Everything we tried was fantastic. Between us, we had the scallops, the ribs, the tempura and the mussels as appetizers. All were excellent. Entres were braised short ribs with filet, and the sea bass (2 each). Again, excellent. Imaginative preparations without being too "foodie" is hard to find, but M Bistro nailed it. If you're into great wine pairings, you might want to consider bringing your own bottle, although I confess I don't know their policy on this. Bottom line: VERY good.

The food never disappoints
The food never disappoints - great crab cakes and deserts. If you're looking to have a quite dinner with great food, this is the place to come. It's one of my favorite places.
5/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Top notch experience.
I had the mussels for an appetizer - best I have ever had! Avocado Tempura stuffed with crab and lobster was also delicious.
Tenderloin/Boneless beef rib dish was unbelievably good. Sea Bass was cooked perfectly. Cocktails were creative.
Service was extremely attentive without being overbearing.

Located near the river at Rockett's Landing. Parking appears ample.
Nice ambience and noise level. Our server Jonathan was helpful, attentive, and friendly.
I had the duck and my wife had 2 appetizers for dinner - the avocado lobster salad and the lamb Benedict. The duck was well prepared, crispy. My wife's two appetizers consisted of a lobster tempura, deep fried, stuffed with a cold crab-lobster salad. The lamb Benedict was two lamb chops, with a poached egg, sitting on a piece of ham, covered in Hollandaise sauce. For dessert we had the bread pudding. All were outstanding.
We'll definitely be back the next time we are in RIchmond.
5/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
We go to M Bistro frequently, and we've never been dissatisfied with the food or the service. We recommend it to friends often.

M bar and bistro offers a menu that keeps your taste buds asking for more. The staff is great and very approachable. The head chef Micheal greats his guest and is always glad to see returning customers. This is the spot for fresh made to order food and a vibrant way to surprise your taste buds.

The place my mother wants to go to when I take her out.

M Bistro Team Lunch
Service was prompt and courteous for team lunch. Wait staff was attentive with refills and timely, without disturbing conversation at the table. Lunch options were plentiful with several delightfully sounding dishes to choose from. Food came hot and fresh, condiments request were quickly answered, and bill was delivered at the appropriate time. Overall good experience
6/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Both of our dinners were excellant. We would both go again.

What do you expect? This area of restaurants really doesn't have any bad places to go. It was delicious and amazing.

Great seafood and sides
We both had seafood (salmon and tilapia) as wellas salads. The sides were seasonal and flavorful. The portions were more than adequate. Neither of us had room for dessert.
7/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Will go back again!
This was our first time and we loved it! We definitely go back - esp. so I can get the duck again!

M. Bistro was a delicious experience. Uniquely prepared foods with daring fusion. Our waitress was off the chart personable and attentive. The diners were varied in that the mix included business people, neighborhood, special occasion diners etc.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
My girlfirend and I went there for a special occasion. We enjoyed the whole expierence. The food was outstanding and the waitstaff were attentive and knowledgable. For an appetizer we had the fried ribs in sriracha sauce. The ribs were fall of the bone tender and the sauce was great. My girlfriend got the cat sea pig scallp.. Was simply wonderful. We will definitley go back!!

Another great evening with
Another great evening with friends. Love Brandon, the manager who helps my husband pick out the perfect wine for dinner. We are sad that he is leaving for other adventures and hope that the restaurant will continue to run smoothly without him. Delicious food, well prepared, presented and service is OUTSTANDING!!!!! Highly recommend. We will be returning:) This place is a hidden gem!!!!!
8/9/2013 5:00:00 PM
If you want the best.
I have to say the service and the chef was outstanding. I will say that I did go when they were slow. But the staff appear to stay ub to beat when it gets busy. The food is I would say the best.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Just the place that you pray stays in this finicky business and recommend to everyone. But at he same time hope that it does not get discovered by everyone and you can't a table the next time you go there. Some of the dishes may catch you a little of guard but I thnk that's a good thing. Prices are just right. We'll return....
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our first time dining at this venue was absolutely AMAZING! On August 27, 2013, I wined and dined my husband here for his 44th birthday. The service was right on point! Our server, Jennifer, was outstanding. Her customer service was the best we had experienced in a very long time. She made sure we had everything we needed and she was extremely knowledgeable when making menu suggestions. If you love GREAT food, excellent customer service and a romantic atmosphere, WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND M Bistro & Wine Bar- Richmond for your next dining experience!
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
High on our A-list
After at least four occasions at M Bistro, all of them most enjoyable, we quickly say it is one of our favorite Richmond area dining venues. The menu is imaginative and yet features enough "old friends" to make dinner choices part of the fun of being there! Our compliments to the chef...always! We also appreciate the uncluttered ambiance of the place, and the fact that the noise level has never been obtrusive to our dinner conversation.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
I went there for a dinner date with some one who I feel is very special to me. We had a great meal and were able to talk with out interuption on having to raise our voices. Very nice decore and atmosphere.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was my second time at M Bistro for brunch & I must say that they never disappoint. The food was amazing & so was my signature cocktail. I look forward to my next visit & trying a new entrée (so far with me they are 2 for 2).

Wonderful Dining Experience
I recently dined at M Bistro for dinner to celebrate a job promotion. The food was delicious. All of the options sounded so wonderful I couldn't decide what to order so I went with the night's special. What a wonderful choice it was. The steak was flavorful and tender! I ordered the mint chocolate cheesecake for dessert. It was divine! In addition to the food, the service was wonderful. Our waitress was very polite and attentive, but she did not rush us through our meal. I highly recommend M Bistro's dinner and brunch as well. You won't be disappointed!
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything was great, fresh and prepared just right - Scallop Appetizers, Salmon and Sea Cat/Pig Scallop Entrees and limoncello cake for desert was super. Great martini and good wine at reasonable price. Service was excellent. Definitely a place we will return to.
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
loved all the appetizers and entrees - we all ordered differently and shared around the table - lovely
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM

Excellent meal here with my husband on a Friday night. Consistently delicious and well prepared. Chef Michael is fabulous at his dishes. Great place to go out to before listening to music in Richmond. Highly recommend. We will be returning:)

This was our first visit to
This was our first visit to M Bistro but it won't be our last. The staff was friendly and helpful and the food was fantastic. It's one of the few times where I could have easily ordered anything on the menu and been very happy. There was a large event going on in half of the restaurant but it wasn't intrusive on the rest of the dining room. Even though our waiter had a large number of tables to serve, he did everything he could to make sure we were happy. He was knowledgeable and professional. I'm truly pleased we discovered M Bistro.

Perfect Date Night
After a long week, my husband and I were looking for a place to share a quiet date night. M Bistro was the perfect choice. The ambiance was perfect- quiet, nicely lit, with soothing music. Although it was Friday night, the restaurant was not too crowded. The service was great, the food delicious, and the overall experience was perfect. We will be coming again, for sure!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing food! So delicious
Amazing food! So delicious and beautiful and creative. The only criticism I have was that it took a while for the meal to come and there was only one other couple. I'm not sure why it was so inefficient but the quality was outstanding.

Fabulous Food and Friendly Setting
We went to M Bistro & Wine Bar for Richmond Restaurant Week. We always like to try out a new place, and were very happy with our choice. The noise level was perfect. We had a group of six and were able to hear each other without having to yell. The waitress was very helpful. We did not order wine, but the wine and mixed drink looked very extensive. The food was fabulous. I could have made a whole meal out of an order or two of the flatbread appetizer. My scallops were perfect, and my husband's shrimp and grits in a tomato-based sauce were amazing. That was a new and really creative combination. The funnel cake strawberry shortcake dessert was another creative and delicious menu choice.
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed another fantastic
Enjoyed another fantastic meal here during Richmond Restaurant Week. They just introduced a new menu and had a lot of different choices to choose from. This gave us a great opportunity to try new menu items and see what we like. All the choices were absolutely delicious, well prepared and had great sauces to accompany them. We LOVE this restaurant and Chef Michael is ABSOLUTELY fabulous!!!! We will be returning back soon. Highly recommend:)

Restaurant Week DIning
We had a wonderful first time experience at M Bistro. The service was stellar and took into consideration all of our special requests. It was a special prix fix menu and the portions were plentiful. Great selection and atmosphere.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
It's all good
Everything from the friendliness and efficiency of the staff to the ambiance were wonderful additions to the fact that every morsel was delicious. The food presentation was as interesting as the delectable tastes. I liked being able to see the chef and his assistants at work -- they looked like they were enjoying their time, as well.
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
The music was great and sparked
The music was great and sparked conversation with other customers. Chef Michael can out greeted and had conversation with the customer as usual. He also listen to what customer had to say about items on the menu, taking suggestions about putting items that were once on the menu back.
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great date night
Excellent restaurant for get togethers or quiet date night. I have been here 3 times and it has been wonderful every time.

Went to M Bistro for brunch
Went to M Bistro for brunch for a birthday celebration. We had a large party and even though it took a while for us all to arrive, the restaurant was very accommodating. Our server was greatly informed on the menu and was able to make several dish recommendations. At the table we had the following dishes: shrimp & grits, eggs benedict with crab cake, elegant eggs, open faced smoked salmon sandwich, southern french toast and the lobster roll. All plates were scraped clean. Everything was delicious! Between the awesome service and the amazing food, I most certainly will be visiting M Bistro again soon.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
Service needs serious improvement
M Bistro has everything going for it except for the service. Both times my husband and I have gone, it has been horrible. We have had to remind them that we actually ordered dinner and to bring it before breakfast time. Last week I took a big group. We were the only ones in the restaurant and were still served a good 1 1/2 hr after we ordered. And 45 mins after ordering, 3 of us were told the dish we ordered had ran out…despite there being no one else there! Other than the service being better pretty much anywhere else you go (including diners), the food was great and ambiance wonderful. You guys really need to figure this out because we're not going back until you do!
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Check it out!
The service was excellent. The food was superb. The chef should think about a career in New York's Manhattan. It was that good! Jessica was my server and couldn't have been nicer. She made my Thanksgiving very memorable and I am grateful.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Perfect Thanksgiving meal
We decided to eat out on Thanksgiving for the first time ever since there were just two of us. Our server was attentive and the meal was paced perfectly. We will certainly eat there again as a special treat. We are still talking about how wonderful our meals were.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great place for a business lunch
The noise level is conducive to having business conversations. Food is very good, nice selections of sandwiches and salads. Super happy with the venue.
