Delightful meal pre-theater. Jason was very pleasant and made sure we were able to keep our time.

We went on a Friday evening so the bar was rather loud. But the food was delicious and there are incredible vegan options.

We came to Richmond to see a show at the Altria Theater. I had googled restaurants within walking distance to the theater and this one was first on the list. I didn't even think about the fact that it would be a Friday night during Lent so once I got there, I kinda panicked to find a meatless option. Never fear, the Chickpea Fritters DID NOT DISAPPOINT!! I have already recommended this place to other friends traveling to Richmond soon!

We were two couples that thoroughly enjoyed the food and ambiance. The shrimp and grits was wonderful and my husband had the mixed grill that he enjoyed. We split the apple pie and homemade ice cream which really was a treat. And an added benefit was that we parked out front and walked to the Altria Theater for Finding Neverland (which was delightful!!) Great evening. Great location. Prices very reasonable and good choices. Will return.

Server was very nice.
Overall, food was not good. Not seasoned well. Plates for sharables were awkward, large rims taking up a lot of space on the table. Cheese board not well appointed, and the toasted white bread on the side was not a good pairing.

Friendly and prompt service. We had to keep our coats on because it was so cold. Burgers were undercooked and sitting in a pool of grease. We didn't have time to deal with the indiscretions so just suffered through. The brightest part of the meal was the Quinoa salad that accompanied the burger. I would give them a second chance because the menu is enticing.

It was freezing cold in the restaurant, so we were forced to keep our jackets on the entire time. We were referred to eat here when we were in search of a good burger or steak restaurant. I definitely wouldn't recommend it as that - the food was good it just wasn't at all what we were looking for or expecting. The burger came with soup which just seemed weird so we had to order fries separately. Service was okay but she wasn't completely comfortable with the menu and could not answer all of our questions...but we were given someone who was in training.

The food was excellent, however their dinner menu does not start until 5pm, pretty much no exceptions. They should not allow you to book a table for 4:30 if they will not allow you to look at the dinner menu until 5 pm. Great vegan and meat eaters options. Just disappointed we went for dinner and had to order from the early/late night menu which had less options.

I love Postbellum! They have tasty seasonal craft cocktails. The menu has several vegetarian and vegan options, so it's a good place to take people with those dietary restrictions. I had the BBQ benedict - grilled cornbread with sweet tea braised collards, pulled pork, poached eggs, and bbq sauce. A great southern take on a classic. I also recommend the truffle honey fries. Everything I've had in my visits has been excellent.

All went well until the waiter forgot one of the six desserts. After waiting and asking about the missing dessert the waiter said I'll take if off your bill enjoy when it comes out. After we got the check and asked about the still missing dessert, the waiter said "Oh the kitchen is busy and probably couldn't get to it". It was Sat night but early only 6:30 so they should have been prepared. What a shame!!

Went to Postbellum before a show at the Altria. I knew nothing about it prior except it's location. They have a lot of beer choices, appetizers, sharables, and 6-7 entrees. Decor, booths, etc. were okay, but not special. I splurged for the steak (the only item over $20). I couldn't tell if mine was underdone (ordered medium rare, but it was red in the center) or just a tough piece of meat (hard to cut & chew). My date had the Shrimp & Grits and she enjoyed it. The brussel sprouts appetizer was awesome.

Awesome vegan French toast and biscuits. However they changed their vegan gravy recipe and it’s a little more runny now. I miss the old version but still a solid choice for vegan options!

Our second time back for brunch - I was able to special request certain items be left out. Chef goofed on one thing but it was fine...
Quirky vibe in this place but definitely like it for brunch.

Stopped in for weekend brunch based on the reco of a waiter earlier in our visit and other reviews. The menu was interesting, would have appreciated a traditional 'go to' option (like a regul eggs benedict) but went with one of the hashes and was very pleased. Tasty and nice portion, though my companions' food was cold. Service was odd...overly friendly but not very attentive and kind of slow even though it wasn't busy. We would try again...

Enjoyed a family dinner on the back patio of Postbellum early Sunday evening. Avoided the rooftop bar where there were a lot of smokers. The menu satisfied our whole group, vegan included. Highly recommend the house made pickles and pretzel.
