Bistro 27 was beyond my expectations. The atmosphere was great, it created an intimate setting for the occasion. The food was absolutely amazing and worth it; We traveled about two hours and it was definitely worth the drive. The calamari was great. My fiance recommended it although I have had a previous bad experience. I can honestly the preparation at Bistro 27 has given Calamari a second chance in my book and I will be having it again. The lamb was succulent, tender and flavorful with crisp veggies and fluffy mashed potatoes. My fiance had the Sea Bass and Crab which was also very flavorful and accented well with the side dishes. For dessert, we had the Tiramisu which was awesome for my first time experiencing it. Great choices for dinner and dessert. It has been three days since we've been and we are still talking about how great the food was. Perfect first time experience for us and we will definitely make our way back.

A fantastic dinner experience! I had friends coming in from out of town and they were late due to I-95 traffic. The owner/manager went out of his way to be sure was a pleasurable evening. He held our reservation to accommodate and provided special parking for my friends once they arrive. The meal was top notch and when my friends wife mentioned how much she enjoyed the meal and special oil with the bread, the owner gave her a bottle of the oil with spout and all to take home. She thanked a the chef as well as the owner and I became a hero for taking them to such a fine place.

Thanks William. I will be back again and again!

I was able to make a reservation but the restaurant was closed. This was a dinner for my girlfriends birthday and we had to make other plans because reservations were made for a place that was closed.

Pleasant and enjoyable night. Drinks, food, and conversation were matched well throughout the evening.

The owner, William, made some table changes for our group of 6 gracefully. The pace of the meal, service, fresh food quality were all excellent. Main courses were hanger steak, sea bass, stuffed ravioli and all were cooked to perfection. Spectacular floor to ceiling windows give restaurant an open inviting feeling.

We chose Bistro 17 primarily because of the menu we saw online. When we got there the actual menu was considerably smaller. Also, a bit disappointing that they did not have caffeinated coffee.

But, the service was very good and it is a beautiful restaurant. Very good quality wines.

We were greeted promptly by Jamie, and then seated. I asked. If they had any sweet wines. The bartender created a dry Riesling and Moscato combination that hit the spot. I ordered the sea bass with crab meat with a wonderfully light sauce.

William, the manager, joined us for some delightful conversation, and our server, Jamie, was pleasant and professional.

A thoroughly delightful evening.

Traveling out of town and not wanting to eat at hotel we tried this place. There was only one other table filled when we arrived. The waitress was enthusiastic however I believe she may have been training. She had an addition server join us for ordering whonwas bery helpful and polite. The food was adequate but quick.

Went with a party of six on a Tuesday was very accommodating to some special client beverage request..we were only diners there, but service and timing was excellent. Bread and salads very good, entree's very so-so. Poor wine list. Can't recommend for food, but kudos to staff for service and willing to accommodate.

New Year's Eve 2017! One of the worst meals I've had in a very long time! Overdressed soggy salad! Horrible rib eye steak and tasteless everthing else! Too bad because it is a very attractive reataurant!

It was New Years Eve and they had a special menu. The steak on the menu, called prime, was anything but. Food was rushed and everything was cold. It was a cold night. The manager, when informed comped the meal, though.

Four of us went to Bistro 27 for New Years Eve dinner. We all enjoyed the ambiance of the restaurant but unfortunately that's where it ended. The menu was a special 3 course meal for $48.50 a person. We were all aware of the special menu and we're looking forward to the options available. None of us enjoyed our meals, two of us had the roasted leg of lamb, our portion sizes were completely different but both were dry and tough. One of us had the Prime cut rib-eye steak which was half fat.
Overall with so many great restaurants in Richmond to choose from this is not one we would return to. I have heard they have a good brunch.

I went to Bistro 27 with a couple of friends before the theater and had a wonderful experience! Everything from food to service was fantastic. I had the Sea Scallops, my friends had the sea bass and crab and the duck breast. Food was presented beautifully. Service was quick but not rushed. We will definitely be returning soon!

The portions were a little smaller than expected for the pricing but still was enjoyable. The scallops and shrimp were cooked perfectly. The olive bread and cheese bread were delicious.
