The dining experience at L'Opossum is not characterized by pre-prepared food served at a dubious temperature, requisite white tablecloths, halting servers in black and white constraints, or meager ambiance.
Instead, you find authentic, engaging, thoughtful design, opulent beverages, exceptional cuisine stunningly presented on unique fine dinnerware emphasizing the seasonal rich bounty of Mid-Atlantic farmers and fishers, relaxed elegance, tremendous worth for the coinage, glowing subtle niceties, unforgettable aromas, and erudite, graceful hospitality.
From arrival to departure, every special visit is the best of the best, right here in RVA. It is our prime essential experience that is attainable more than once in a lifetime. Enjoy!
Great service and fabulous food!!
Very yummy with great service. First time there and we'll be back!
Fabulous food and ambiance. Great service. Visiting from CA... best part of our trip!
Really nice meal with our family for mom's birthday, everyone loved their food and drinks and always a cool ambiance.
The drinks, food, and service are top notch. This is the best restaurant in Richmond.
Best restaurant experience in the greater Richmond area!
Great food, good drinks, perfect service. Susan really worked to be sure that we enjoyed our time there.
The food was out of this world and the service was stellar. I am still thinking about the amazing butternut squash soup I had as an appetizer. Totally recommend and can’t wait to go back.
Absolutely amazing as always!
This is our "special occasions" spot. Dining here is always a treat.
Great food. Worth the price!
Each contemplation and undertaking focus on the guest and gratifying their experience. We have had a privileged occasion to dine at L'O numerous times and always conclude the evening enriched and appreciatively satiated and happy. It is magnificent.
Awesome restaurant. Best in Richmond
Amazing dining experience, just pricy. 2 apps, 2 entrees, and 3 cocktails and our tab was $165. Worth it though and we will be returning! 5 stars!
We really enjoyed our dinner. The filet was tender and cooked perfectly. Our waitress was very knowledgeable of the menu. Very cool ambiance.
Ambience. Amazing food. Good service. Will absolutely come back.
Our meal was absolutely phenomenal. On the more expensive side when it comes to meals in Richmond, but worth every penny!
A unique dining experience. Interesting art, mood setting music with a menu that starts conversations.
Each presentation is special and plentiful.
Wine offerings surprisingly inexpensive yet impressive.
Service is perfect. Attentive yet not obtrusive.
We were celebrating a family event. The soup appetizer was great. The chicken pot pie was ok. The egg on top was delightful. The beef swellington was fabulous. The Mac and cheese was quite disappointing. Cool decor. Excellent server.
Never disappoints. Well trained staff, fun music and great food.
We went on the advice of friends and would do it all over again. Thank you!
Quirky and amazing as usual! Switch to their Fall Menu did not disappoint. Deboned fish, chicken, and beef entrees were all done to perfection.
Great food and service. Wait staff coordinated with us so that we could finish in time to attend the Richmond Symphony performance. Recommend.
Harkening to contemporary hospitality organizer Escoffier, L'Opossum unfailingly hosts an enduring delightful dining experience that is lavish, approachable and comports regalia absent pretense. L'O welcomes friends, family, acquaintances, strangers and aims to convey an erratic antagonistic air to enjoyment. Not an ordinary, but a magnificent restorative. Bourgeois can enjoy the King of Chefs as the Chef of Kings.

This place is HANDS DOWN a MUST to add to your list of restaurants. The ambiance alone is worth the trip but then the food and the drinks.... they were all AMAZING
We shared a Caesar salad, the Fabergé egg, and the crab cakes. Everything was delicious. The ambiance and art are exquisite and fun. Service was impeccable. And we finished our beautiful meal with the flambé decadent chocolate dessert. Dramatic and delicious!!!
Creative menu, kitschy setting, great service, good wine list and beautifullly-prepared food. Excellent restaurant.
The food was amazing. The portions were perfect. I had the Filet Mignon of beef 'Swellington' and it was so tender and cooked to perfection. My fiancee and I have decided to eat there for our anniversaries.
From the first bite to the last, our dinners were perfect. The filet (deconstructed Wellington) was tender and actually medium rare. The chicken (yes, I ordered chicken in a restaurant) was crispy and juicy while the vegetables were all sublime. YUM! Excellent waitress/server/co-diner (she gave tons of great info on each dish option and wines. Could not have been a better experience.
Outstanding!!!! Hands down the best restaurant in Richmond!
Unmatched ambience - one of the best special occasion spots in Richmond. Opulent menu that never disappoints! Usually great service, however this visit we had a very unpleasant waitress who was abrupt and unfriendly. Still didn't put a damper on our evening, though - highly recommend!!
👌 Delish. Great atmosphere. Good service. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
4 of us went for a double date for my best friends birthday. The atmosphere and food were absolutely amazing. 10/10 would recommend. Easily the best crab cake I have ever had. The escargot and curried butternut squash soup were outstanding. Portions were also very good. Lastly- I loved the bread and especially the accompanying whipped butter.
Amazing as usual, the food, the service, the decor, everything!
Absolutely lived up to the hype. We have been trying to get in since May and finally did. For appetizers, we did escargot and faberge eggs. Both delicious. For entrees, my husband and I split the beef swellington and lobster Mac and cheese. O. M. G. my husband is the hardest critic for steaks and said this was the best filet he’s ever had. It was simply to die for. We raved to our waitress who was super kind and provided excellent service. We had creme brûlée for dessert and they even sent us an extra dessert to try! We left booking our next reservation. Absolutely blew us out of the water!!!!!
It took two months to get a reservation, however, it is worth the wait. The crab cakes and the current fish dish were excellent. We believe that the food dishes offered were much better than previous times. All-in-all, it was a delightful evening and hope that it won't take two months to get in again.
Friendly helpful staff, great menu/food options. Delicious food and yummy dessert!! We were spoiled …
The food is rich, flavorful and spectacular. The timing of the serving is fantastic and made for a terrific evening. The decor is outre reflecting the owners taste.
As always, L'Opossum delivered an amazing experience and great food. Service is spot on.
