Helen's is such a special place. I went on a short trip to Richmond and we're considering reshuffling our itinerary to go a second time. Highly recommend
Friends came in from out of town and we all just loved Helen’s. Food was excellent. Better than our last visit.
We never go anywhere else for our anniversary or just a lovely night out.
I had a wonderful time at Helen's last night. The rockfish was on point. My friends ordered the pork and ny strip, both were also very tasty. Desert was creme brulee and the brownie was my favorite! Zsa zsa, our waitress was so upbeat and attentive. I will definitely be returning.
Service was great, ambience was outstanding but the food not quiet as good as in the past. The best thing in our party of three was the apple salad & mussels.
A wonderful Richmond institution! Absolutely loved the Christmas Decorations. The staff was very friendly and even took a photo for us. The food was incredible and the drinks strong!!
Wonderful experience - reasonable prices for delicious food and great service. Loved the privacy and seclusion of the booth, which made us feel more at ease despite COVID.
Very nice experience with very good food and great service. Was a bit loud at the bar and being a small restaurant was loud overall but good was very good and we would definitely go back.
Fun, festive holiday atmosphere. Great meal and excellent service!
My wife and I had two of the best entrées that we have had in Richmond in months
We had a fantastic date night at Helen’s! The mussels were some of the best we’ve ever had. The holiday decorations also added such a lovely tough! We will definitely be back
Food was delicious as usual and restaurant is fully decorated for the Holidays- highly recommended!
Absolutely the best food in Richmond, Va. Never disappoints!!!!! We both had the beet salad, pork shank and creme brulee pie (homemade). Will return again and again.
Great food, good ambience. Menu did not match online menu, which was a disappointment for one item.
Great neighborhood gem, with a historic charm that is so Richmond Virginia.
Always excellent…chef Clay is amazing. Had the pork shank and it was prepared to perfection. Helens is our fav place to go!❤️
Great food, atmosphere and service, have lived here over 15 years and somehow never had dinner at Helen’s!
Very nice in all aspects!
Outstanding from start to finish....but....get there early
Amazing! Great food, incredible ambiance, good service. Really lovely spot.
Always a favorite!
As always, everything was delicious. We love Helen's!
I loved everything but the lump crab mac and cheese was to die for!
Helens was great! The food drinks and service were wonderful
As always, Helen's extraordinary chefs prepare outstanding, memorable meals. The service is attentive. The noise level is high, but this is a high energy place. Definitely will return often.
As always everything was great! We go often and are never disappointed.
Enjoyed Helen’s as usual. Good atmosphere and good food.
I don't know what to say other than HOT DAMN, that was a good meal. We got the butternut squash soup and the beet salad for apps and the scallops and yam ravioli and omg it was so good we just kept eating. I had dreams about that meal for a week after eating it. I didn't want to brush my teeth in hopes of holding on to those flavors for just a minute longer.
Great venue. Lots of history!
We enjoyed our meal and look forward to returning!
Reservation availability was a factor. Great atmosphere and location in the 'Fan' of downtown Richmond.
As always the food and service were terrific! I will def. go back to Helens!
Outside patio is beautiful. Perfect for fall dining. Server was attentive. Food was creative and very tasty.
One of the best times at Helen's for us.
Zsa Zsa was back -so good to see her!
We will be back soon!
Always lovely at Helen's.
Excellent food our waiter was very polite and efficient knew the answers to our questions the food was Excellent My only issue was for the size of the building the music was just a little loud definitely would come back again
Had the roasted broccoli and cauliflower appetizer (mostly cauliflower), chicken entree and cannoli for dessert! Everything was delicious
I have a bunch of food allergies and they accommodated me. The food was amazing! Everything was well prepared and thoughtful. There were so many flavor surprises in the dishes. I love all the fresh herbs and spices they used. I wish I had gone there sooner. Definitely worth going to!!
