    My best friend being from the 757 area saw Bellos on Instagram and thought this would be a good spot, for her birthday night. And just be honest, I’ve been to Bellows only for the night portion, but never for like a dine in experience. It was amazing . The food was very flavorful. The staff was amazing. The DJ was Poppin. And the Owner was Really cool making sure me and my friends were accommodated 👍🏽💯 - Shaq Wright

    Multiple menu items were unavailable or no longer part of the printed menu. Entree was nearly refrigerator cold when served Service /attentiveness was slow. Definitely overhyped and underwhelming.

    Had an amazing experience! The food was delicious and the staff was an absolute bonus! From Tim being able to work us in for dinner to Anaya being very attentive to our table. After dinner we did go up to experience the lounge and it was a great experience with Pink the hookah girl.

    Food was simply amazing. Fresh ingredients! Ambience was definitely nice. Service was okay. Our server, Justine had moments where she seemed nice, irritated and slightly impatient at times. It went from one emotion to another lol. This could be a isolated case because she’s waited my table once before and her service was 5 stars. Serving customers can be draining, so I’ll give her a pass. I would definitely dine here again.

    had a nice time getting drinks with my friends for my birthday. Only thing I didnt like was the staff rushing us because I guess the kitchen was about to close but we told them we were not eating when we first got there. They were quick to take everything off the table before my whole party even got there.

    Been here twice. Was waited in by Tim and Justine. No complaints at all. Very friendly and professional. My only gripe about this place is they run outta food fast. I’ve been craving oxtails and both times they were out.

    If you’re looking for a chill, relax vibe with the most scrumptious Caribbean food Bellos is the answer; what can I say this made my Friday night from the atmosphere to the service and the quality of the food and drinks even the cost was chefs kiss. This will not be my only visit while here in VA.

    If I could give a 20 out of 10 I would. We had such an amazing time. We were a very large party and came during happy hour on a Friday night and everyone was so accommodating. The owner is a sweetheart. The wait staff is kind and attentive. The food was good. The drinks were GREAT. The vibe was perfect. We will definitely be back again & again. Thank you all so much!

    Small space and small tables but were seated immediately with our reservation. Too many people at the bar will crowd you out, but otherwise we were okay. Crab cake appetizer was decent enough. The red snapper Escovitch was AMAZING and wonderfully presented. Would have preferred rice option as the side, but we were fine with potatoes. The plantains were phenomenal. Waitress was a bit forgetful with several things, but she may have been pre-occupied. After 10:00pm they remove the chairs and it may become more of a lounge, dance hall, bar atmosphere. Left prior to that.

    I chose Bello’s for my birthday dinner. I had a reservation. The appetizers were ok: we ordered calamari and fried shrimp. The shrimp was excellent, calamari was not hot. I received my entree. After 45 minutes of waiting, my friend still hadn’t received her meal. They removed it from the bill and gave it to her to go but it out a damper on the night. The drinks were good and the server was excellent

    Well for starters we had a party of 15 and none of our food came out together like 20-30 mins apart or more. That was very frustrating. My food was actually good though and I wouldnt mind eating it again however my friends stuffed salmon wasnt hitting on much. I had the tequila passion fruit glazed shrimp as my app and Rasta pasta for my dish, it was great. My server was great for her first large party. The owner was tried his best to accomodate us. Overall my experience was deminished by the my guests not enjoying themselves because of how our food came out sporadically. 2.5/5 overall for me. I would give them another chance though just with a smaller party size like 3/4 max.

    Wow!!! The food is AMAZING and worth every penny! The appetizer simply grilled shrimp one word delicious!! It came with a dipping sauce that was equally amazing. Their salmon just melts in your mouth. The ambiance and decor is top notch for any type of gathering from romantic dinner dates, family gathering, and even for business purposes. Service is outstanding, completely opposite of the rude/obnoxious customer service you typically get elsewhere in Richmond downtown. My favorite place thus far…
