1st time eating there. Loved the food and atmosphere. Will definitely plan to go back.
Food scrumptious and staff amazingly warm and attentive.
Incredible as always! Looking forward to our next visit!
First time to L’Opposum and we were not disappointed. Excellent starters including a crab mousse and oyster Rockefeller. No overly heavy sauces just nicely seasoned entrees to include a lobster Mac and Cheese!
We were a party of 6 celebrating 2 January birthdays at L'opossom. It was a wonderful evening. Service was impeccable, food delicious, and ambiance just right for everyone.
One of the best meals I’ve had - the service was perfect, the unique offerings made for fun discussion and the quality of the food was incomparable. I’ve been here before however this was significantly better and the service changed from pompous to delightful.
While I enjoyed the quality and food taste, the prices were overly inflated and certain dishes had limited volumes of food for example, the amount of lobster in the mac and cheese, and the grilled chunk of romaine for $12. It was a special day for me and the server brought a single candle affixed to small dinnerware. That was a bit embarrassing and we had spent over $150 in food, yet couldn't get a small brownie or so with a candle. It left my wife flabbergasted after a great meal. I don't see why they are considered the best of the best in Richmond.
Excellent evening out with our close friends. The staff, ambience and tremendous food and drinks accentuated, without pretense, our time hanging out together
Food was amazing!
Birthday for wife. Was great
One of the very best restaurants in central Virginia. Wonderful for a date night.
We had a wonderful evening! Our server was amazing and the food delicious.
As always, perfection
Phenomenal. Great food, great service.
Unique atmosphere with great and interesting menu. Server was extremely knowledgeable, which is important because the menu is complicated. Loved it.
If it weren’t so darn hard to get reservations, I’d be back soon.
Amazing food & service!
As always - a fantastic eclectic experience!
Superb food that emanates a unique combinations of flavors, the right amount of spice and just enough of a serving to feel satisfied - and still room for their incredible desserts!
Table service is outstanding - unobtrusive but attentive.
Go to L'Opossum if you want an experience in fine food and atmosphere! Don't go if you are judgemental or close-minded or can't find fun in the decor and location!
Simply outstanding. The food is creative and cooked superbly. The service is impeccable without being obsequious.
No question that L'Opossum is our favorite restaurant in Richmond. BUT they have increased the corkage to an outrageous amount, which is causing us to rethink visiting other great restaurants in Richmond that are far more reasonable. We have amazing bottles of wine that we love to bring for a special dinner, and we should be penalized for it. Nevertheless, the food was amazing on New Year's Eve. My fish was delicious. Dessert was incredible.
Our waiter Mark was the best ever! Just truly amazing the depth of knowledge he has about the food which allows the guest to feel at ease. The apps all the way to the dessert was truly a grand experience that can’t be beat.
One of the best and unique dining experiences in Richmond! Host and Bartender were awesome!
Holiday dinner out with friends from NYC. You did not disappoint! All were impressed and enjoyed it immensely!
Highly recommend for small group or date. Eclectic vibe - food is excellent.
My husband and I had a good meal at L'Opossum. The ambiance is high camp and lots of fun and service was terrific, though we admit that we expected more from the food. It wasn't our favorite restaurant in Richmond but we enjoyed it nonetheless.
Outstanding - holiday dinner with precious friends!
Food is always very good there , and usually the staff is very friendly but our main waiter at our resent visit last night was not very good. she had this disgusted look on her face. I’m not sure if that was just with us or she looked that way with everyone else but she obviously didn’t want to be there.
The entire experience is phenomenal!!!!
Quirky and wonderful. L'Opossum never fails to impress. Food is fantastic. Wine list is approachable and affordable. Always a treat.
Decor was hilarious, especially nativity scene w Peewee Herman. Best restaurant soundtrack ever. Service was excellent as were the appetizers of Faberge Egg and Ham Biscuit w Escargot. Mains, however, of Char and Lamb Shanks, were both overcooked. But, finished strong w Eggnog cocktail for dessert.
Absolutely fantastic dining experience. From the foods and drinks to the service. Our favorite restaurant when in Richmond.
Wonderful evening with my wife. I had the crab cakes and my wife had a scallop special. Everything was delicious and presentation delightful. Menu is always entertaining to read and service fantastic.
Dinner at L’Opossum never disappoints.
Great experience. Would highly recommend to anybody.
I believe this to be the best date night in town. Arguably, the best food in Richmond. I will admit, however, they keep the lights down unusually low. Its a touch hard to see.
Amazing food and staff as always the Misses had a wonderful birthday.
Always amazing. Great attention to detail and consistently some of the best food in Richmond. Right on time cocktails and mocktails that set the mood. Cheeky menu and visual delights make the experience that much better.
Favorite restaurant in Richmond! Best restaurant in Richmond! Never disappoints!
Didn't disappoint! We were early - the restaurant was very accommodating and able to seat us. Great ambience and decor. The food was delish, and was presented very creatively. Our server was extremely knowledgeable of the menu, attentive and had a wonderful disposition. Go with the Texas Beach Orgy for an appetizer and try the Swank Bank as a meal. Plenty to share! Highly recommend for a date night.
This is the best restaurant in Richmond for a reason.
Fabulous food and service! Will be back!
Amazing- always the best dining experience.
