Dinner: 5:pm -10:00pm
I have heard so much about L’Opossum and it did not disappoint!
The food was very good and the service was as well.
Three words. FAB-U-LOUS!
Had well traveled co-workers join me for dinner and both said this was one of their best meals and ambiance EVER.
The steak was amazing, everything else was above average but not blow your socks off awesome considering the reviews. Ambiance and service was spectacular.
Another wonderful dinner at L'Opossum. This restaurant lives up to all of the awards and accolades. Fantastic!
Food and service excellent! Menu creative and hilarious (in a good way).
Excellent food and service. A definite must visit . Decor very interesting. Noise level was high. I did not mind so much but my other friends had trouble hearing. It was worth the dining experience. The food was exceptional.
Variety galore: something for every taste. Creative, fun cuisine and friendly people.
Food wasn’t good, certainly no where near the hype and a James Beard award.
This is our FAVORITE restaurant not only in Richmond, but among many, many restaurants we've dined over the long length of our travelling around North America. After some few years of knowing about the place and great number of visits we surrely can say:
you'll experience a magical place;
out of this world creative, interesting and delicious food;
the warmest, nicest, efficient, professional and concistently great service from everyone (and very dear to our hearts Susan above all);
and all of it won't break your wallet.
We are absolutely sure we'll be there every chance we get, and advise you to do the same if you love great dining out.
After waiting over a month for our reservation, we expected to be wowed. The descriptions of the apps/entrees are cute and creative, but do not give a clear indication of the dish. Our waitress described the escargot appetizer a lot better than the menu, which made us order it. It was the only good thing of the night. My hubby got the crabcakes. We both strongly dislike dill (which was not mentioned on the menu) and his dish was covered in strong dill flavors. I ordered the lobster mac and cheese which was just eh. No white truffle flavor to be found, but the dish was soooo strong in pink peppercorn. Not sure what the fuss is about. We've tried it twice and have been disappointed both times. So many better choices in Richmond! And if you like white Wonder bread or institutional, flavorless bread, you'll love their bread.
This restaurant was mentioned as a Southern Living "Best of the South", it is definitely not. The food and service were good, pricey but a very small, dark space in Richmond.
A great place to impress someone. Eclectic appetizers and main course items are outstanding.
Amazing every single time - thank you for Bring the BEST reataurant in Richmond!
It took several months to get a reservation, but it was worth the wait! Creative/tasty food, unique ambience and attentive service. I would highly recommend L'Opossom to anyone wanting a memorable and tasty night out.
I just love the place. Wish it was easier to get in. You ought to sell memberships.
A neighborhood notable in Oregon Hill. A fine dining restaurant tucked in an unassuming building in an unassuming neighborhood.
Great food and excellent service. Mark took excellent care of us and had an encyclopedic command of the menu options. Well worth another visit.
L'Opossum did not disappoint. This place lives up to the awards AND the far out reservations. We definitely plan to come back, even if I have to book it three months in advance. It was worth it!
Dinner for family members 60th birthday. Everything from before dinner cocktails to dessert was deliciously prepared and professionally presented. Had crab cakes, steak and chicken - all wonderful! Will definitely be back.
Richmond’s most innovative and delicious menu. Great service, great drinks, in a funky, vibrant setting in Oregon Hill. Southern Living magazine recently named it as the best restaurant in the entire South. That’s saying something. And it’s true.
What a fantastic place! Great food, wonderful ambiance and nice soundtrack. Our waiter was funny and made our night even more special.
Delicious food and creative menu! Great food adventure.
IT WAS TRULY ONE OF THE FINEST DINING EXPERIENCES I HAVE EVER HAD IN RICHMOND....THE FOOD, THE MENU, THE DRINKS AND OUR WAITRESS WERE ALL WORLD CLASS AND NOW I UNDERSTAND WHY I HAD TO WAIT SO LONG TO GET A RESERVATION.....IT WAS TRULY A...WOW MOMENT...CANNOT WAIT TO GO BACK
Our favorite meal in our 25 years in Richmond - everything was wonderful - thanks to all involved especially the chef and our fantastic server Susan!
My favorite restaurant in RVA. The ambiance is lively but not too noisy and the food is fantastic. The crab cakes, halibut and steak were terrific. The waitress was amazing with her description of the entrees, serving us at the appropriate time and overall excellent timing with refills on wine, etc. #1RVAFoodstop
Eclectic is the best word for L'O. Fun decor, delicious menu, good service.
Our waiter was very informative. Food was delicious. Atmosphere was unique but we loved it.
It’s our favorite place in Richmond. Perfect for our celebrations, a fun date night and to take our friends that are visiting our town.
Great unusual place. Unique food. Really like the escargot and grits.
We had heard a lot about this place and were excited to get reservations. The food did not disappoint. The mushrooms with truffle oil that topped the filet were out of this world. Lavender and limoncello Crema brûlée was also a must have!
Exceptional on every front. I can't wait to return.
The food lived up to the hype which is the most important thing. It was inventive and delicious. The menu descriptions were fun though not that descriptive but the servers are knowledgeable. The drinks were very good. Though it's not cheap, it far better than comparable priced restaurants. The atmosphere is eclectic.
Menu was as eclectic as decor. Wine list & drinks offered limited by glass wines, but interesting selections. Faberge Eggs appetizer began with a bang: lovely presentation and tasty ingredients. Entrees all were equally visual in presentation, but those we selected were overly spiced for our taste.
The food was very good, but so is the food at many other restaurants in town. The appetizers were definitely the standouts of the menu.
Was worth waiting for a reservation. Good size portions, great wine, fabulous food. Pretty busy for a Tuesday.
Took my wife there for her birthday. Very good service attentive and friendly. Tasty foods and nice portions.
Another perfect dinner here. What a creative, amazing restaurant with scrumptious food. Hubby had the gorgeous soup and “best steak ever!” I enjoyed every bite of the escargot with a mini ham biscuit and the lobster mac ‘cheese. Plan ahead! It’s a challenge to get a reservation.
