The service is terrific and the food is heavenly. Delicious flavors and unexpected treats. The restaurant is lovely, but its openness can make it a little loud. We ate at 7 on a Thursday and after a bit, the bar noise quieted down and the ambiance was lovely. Especially appreciated the amuse bouche we got as a special little treat.

Eelicious food, wonderful service, beautiful setting. Loved everything. When making a reservation, let them know if you're celebrating a special occasion. On Open Table, I wrote it was our anniversary, and we were greeted with two glasses of complimentary champagne.

I travel 85% of the year for missile defense contracting jobs w the DoD and look for gastropubs because my brother is the executive chef at his in Jackson, MS (Barrelhouse). This is one of the best ones I’ve come across; the service and atmosphere are definitely worth the value of the food (just make sure your dates worth it lol). My bill was $168 (w/o tip) and I got full and drunk, which I’d rate a overall A-. I would’ve bumped it up to A but my date, although beautiful, did not think the same of me. Lots of history. The hotel is supposed to have a rooftop bar during summer and JJ Grey and MOFRO killed it at the National after we left (it’s close walk and I was drunk). Thank you for your consideration. Recommended.

The chicken and waffles were fatty and not very good. Musicians were playing during our meal and it made it very difficult to converse with our large party.

We had a great dinner at Maple & Pine before a play at Virginia Repertory. The restaurant accommodated our need for valet parking through the entire evening. The valet was prompt and polite. We enjoyed a fine meal in the cosmopolitan surroundings of the Quirk Hotel and restaurant. The hostess and our table service were warm and welcoming. The rockfish entree and the vegetarian pasta entree were delicious, accompanied by a nice Broadside chardonnay. We appreciated how attentive our servers were, enabling an unrushed experience and on-time arrival to the theater across the street.

The Sunday brunch was wonderful. The restaurant has a really cool vibe. There’s a long bar toward the back and uniquely shaped tables throughout that offer some separation from fellow diners. The Bloody Marys were excellent — nice and spicy. The brioche French toast with blueberries got rave reviews — it looked like dessert! The breakfast burger with bacon, cheese, and a fried egg on top hit the spot. It came with a ridiculously good biscuit bun and a fresh side salad. The only disappointment was that the eggs Benedict came out warm rather than hot, but the taste was phenomenal, so the temperature was overlooked. The leek Hollandaise it came with was divine.

It just was not worth the money. The food was just ok and the menu was very limited in terms of options for entrees and side dishes. I have been there for lunch and loved what I ordered, so I had high expectations. Probably would not go back.

Took my wife here for brunch for Valentines Day and we were treated to a booth with a special note and complimentary champagne! Our waitress was very sweet and offered advice on Richmond as well as helped us with food questions we had. We got to walk around The Quirk Hotel afterwards and see all the great artwork. We will be back for brunch and are excited to try dinner here as well!

Had a table for 2 for Valentine's Day. Table was ready on schedule. They had a fixed price menu @ $65/person which included 3 courses. Also included a pre-appetizer appetizer, and a post-dessert dessert, and some incredible bread (they order from NJ) and butter.. Every course was stellar. Parmessan custard with diced green tomato and fried sage leaves (5 out of 5. Never had anything like it), a roasted beet salad (5 out of 5), beef short rib covered in phyllo dough with sweet potato puree and some kind of delicious sauce (5 out of 5), a chocolate/coffee mousse with coconut and banana (4 out of 5), and some extremely potent chocolate cordials flavored with rose, lavender and I don't know what else (i'll be generous and say 2 out of 5, but I think that they are probably just not my thing, and they were complimentary). Service was top notch. Timing on courses was perfect – plenty of time to talk and relax in between courses. Never felt like they were trying to push me out the door to seat the next table. In fact, there are so few tables that it feels quite intimate considering you are in a massive open hotel lobby. I'd go again in a heartbeat for a special occasion.

Recommended by a local when I inquired about a good place to entertain a few guests while in town. Beautiful setting, service was off the charts, and food superb. Seven people had lunch and all raved about it. Salmon burger was best I’ve had. Very accommodating when we added a person at the last minute. Two of us had breakfast the next morning and more of same: great service and food!

Funky atmosphere that felt hip and fun. Round booths felt private yet in the midst of everything. Great wine list and a wonderful cab by the glass or bottle at a reasonable price. Rest of wine list with great selections but significantly overpriced. Food wonderful and eclectic. Salmon was cooked perfectly, short rib melted in your mouth. One dessert with chocolate and coconut was shared by all and not enough to go around, it was so good!

I feel as this is my third visit to the restaurant and again I feel the service was below expectations. I sat at my table for what felt like 10 minutes before any of the passing service staff acknowledged me or put water in my glass. It was also not busy at all. The food was delicious, but the staff at the restaurant and front desk were well below my expectations today. Just be friendly and acknowledge your guests should be the training session for the month.

My elderly parents, my brother and wife and my husband and I very much enjoyed our brunch. Staff was attentive and all details were taken care of. Server was great about helping me sneak paying the bill since my Dad usually tries to grab it. My only suggestion would to make sure coffee is served with spoons! Thank you for a lovely outing.

We had salad with salmon and salad with chicken breast. The salmon was served in pieces and cold.
The romaine lettuce had brown spots that showed it's age.The chicken breast was chopped up1/2 squares of cold chicken. Very surprised that such a nice looking restaurant would serve. Very subpar.

The food here is excellent. Something as simple as a citrus vinaigrette added such pizzazz to a simple beet dish. I have to mention the fantastic parsnip puree. It was so creaming and earthy, I wanted to add it to every dish. Our lovely dining experience was quickly overshadowed by a couple of unruly individuals who found it to be acceptable to harass patrons during dinner service. It made me feel very unsafe and question whether or not the staff was equip to handle or have policies in place for these types situations. --I would like to provide an update on this review. Management did reach out to me after this post and have addressed the concern. I appreciate their apology and effort.

Update: We went back and we were greeted warmly! We had a fantastic meal and the atmosphere was lovely. This is definitely a more normal night. The staff was wonderful and our dinner was exceptional, not to mention the portions were healthy! We ordered from their normal menu instead of their tasting. Their honey butter with a sprinkle of sea salt was amazing along with their freshly baked baguette. I wish I could bring it with me every time I have a loaf of bread, I almost didn’t need dessert...almost. Couldn’t pass up dessert after experiencing the beautiful dishes we had earlier! The manager made it a point to stop by to thank us for coming back and trust me, we will be back!

We went on New Year's Eve, so it was very loud. The menu was extremely limited due to the special event, I assume,but the food was very good. I felt it was overpriced at 170.00 for a limited 3 course for 2 and one mixed drink, coffee and not including a tip. I would have much preferred a choice in my meal and the option to skip a dessert. I'm sure it would be better on a regular night. It's a unique environment. The service was good and upscale.Certainly a place to indulge in on a special occasion, but for the typical person, one experience is a nice memory.
