Excellent preparation and presentation by Chef Shannon.
Nothing wasn't great tasting.
Our waitress was knowledgeable and accommodating but not overbearing.
Atmosphere was cozy and private - very nice tables and comfortable seating and perfect lighting.
Really everything was very nice.
Too pricey for me personally, but I've been to other places that were just as expensive and not nearly as good, so for that reason, I would say - worth it.
The ONLY negative comment I have about this place was about the host, Sam.
Maybe Same was in a bad mood or having a bad day, but he was not friendly over the phone, he did not seem pleased to greet us and he was equally unfriendly (borderline rude) during our exit. I tried to personally say thank you to him as I walked out and his half attempt at a glance and a grunt, left me feeling like he was annoyed that I distracted him from the phone or tablet on the host stand to which he preferred to be paying attention.

Best restaurant in Richmond! Everything about L'Opossum is thoughtfully considered, from the programmed daily playlists to the impeccable cocktails to the hilariously punny menu to the beautifully presented food that tastes at least as good as it looks. The staff is attentive & gracious without being overbearing, and adorning the walls between eclectic paintings are a set of Star Wars decorator plates. If all that doesn't sell you on it, I give up. Just go to Qdoba.

L'Opossum is a delightful place for a delicious meal, creative cocktails and fabulous desserts. My crab cakes were meaty and flavorful, and my husband's Moroccan chicken dish was delicious. Both were beautifully presented. The service staff is knowledgeable, pleasant and attentive without being intrusive. The eclectic decorations are always fun to explore and they play the greatest music! We can't wait to go back.

Everything from appetizers through dessert was wonderful. Portion size was
spot on and the mingling of flavors was perfect. L'Opossum came highly
recommended and I can only say "I shall forward that recommendation" to
all I tell about it.

Thank you for a lovely, relaxing and delicious evening.

Creative fine dining without pretense in a small cozy setting. Service was friendly professional and prompt. Like dining in a quirky private home with wealthy hosts. You feel like a guest not a consumer. Get a reservation and go.

The decor is fascinating and interesting - very eclectic and fun! To my taste, the food was a bit too salty. I don’t care for fennel - my problem, not the chef’s - so the faberge egg appetizer was not appealing to me, although the presentation was lovely! For a main course, i had the halibut, which was excellent. My husband had the filet mignon with shaved truffles on top, and that was equally delicious. The lavender/lemon creme brûlée was divine! If anything, i would say the servings were a bit sparse for the cost. The menu is a bit limited, i.e. not a lot of selections. If your tastes don’t run to something more than “meat and potato”, you will likely have a hard time selecting an entree. Service was wonderful.

Much anticipated date for our 37th wedding anniversary! We were not disappointed. Service was attentive and courteous but unintrusive. Cocktails were tasty but average. The food, however, was the star. From appetizers to entrees to dessert, the entire meal was stellar! Portions were appropriate, recipes well conceived with superb execution. The wine list could use a boost with a more interesting selection. Overall, it was a memorable experience. Highly recommended!

Food is interesting and very good but also very rich. Not for the calorie counter.

L’oppossum on Valentine’s Day was slow but not unreasonable, the food was quirky, but not bad. The service wasn’t enthusiastic or connecting, but rather reserved and detached. Wasn’t bad food. Wasn’t the best of the best. Wasn’t too pricey, wasn’t cheap. Not a bad alternative to Fleming’s. Definitely weird. Probably would do it again at some point on the regular.

Great restaurant, great food, good service. Good bar to drink or dine. Unfortunately, it is getting a little pricey these days.
