    The food was exceptional and service from Katrina was outstanding. Katrina is one of the best servers in Richmond. She has educated herself with great product knowledge and has a super friendly personality. The duck entree I had was amazing, and my wife said the Rockfish was the best she has ever had. Brenner Pass is one of the greatest restaurants in Richmond. Great job Chef Brittany!

    The food was phenomenal, the savory donut was definitely something you don't see every day, and it was delicious. The service was great, our waitress was really nice and attentive. Price was reasonable for the ambiance and quality. Tables were spread out and there was an appropriate amount of noise. My only critique was that there was no chicken dish on the menu, one of the members of my party doesn't eat red meat or seafood so a chicken dish would have been nice, they got the mushroom risotto and really enjoyed it all the same. Would recommend to anyone looking for a good date night, night out with their friends or up scale business dinner.

    I mistakenly reserved bar seating, which was not ideal. The 2 servers for that area were very busy making drinks, so there were long lags between courses and after dessert, when we had to wait an inordinately long time to pay and go home. Other than the baked oysters (which had almost no taste b/c the bread crumbs drowned the oysters) our food was good.

    Food here was awesome, tartiflette was amazing, was like being back in Switzerland. It's loud as heck in here. I know people are doing the industrial vibe because of the location but we couldn't even hear our server. What really bothered me though is that any car that went through the intersection, their headlights would blast the back of my retinas. It was quite unpleasant. Anyways, great food, I'll go back when I can eat on the outside porch so I can hear myself think and when it won't be dark until later so my brain doesn't get zapped by headlights.

    Very pretty with a cool vibe. Food was outstanding. Creative and flavorful choices. Clam carbanaro was delicious and unique. Dessert was incredible - fried ricotta balls with chocolate ganache and a side of homemade gelato- brown sugar and cinnamon. Prices were very fair. Our server was a delight!

    We celebrated our anniversary and had a wonderful time. Our server, Salina, provided excellent recommendations and was a delight. The food was amazing. We shared oysters, the tuna crudo, and the persimmon salad. All were delicious. My husband enjoyed the burger. I had a bite of the burger too, very very good. Great atmosphere, and there is a free parking lot. We will definitely return.

    We most certainly will be back to Brenner Pass. Service was outstanding and the food was delicious. We had the fondue (a must), charcuterie and the tarte auxe champignons which was small but worth it. Regarding the main course we had the burger - which will be a reason to go back, the clam carbonara (a different take but delicious) and 2 orders of scallops. The scallops were delicious but underwhelming. There were 4 scallops (small) and served with nothing. It needed an orzo, risotto or really just anything. Overall a lovely evening!

    As good as any of the food we've had in the Alps. The tagliatelle carbonara with clams was a little unusual and absolutely outstanding. Excellent wine list, which included some less common selections, such as Arneis, Chardonnay from Burgenland, and a white from Val d'Aosta.

    Booked for a retirement dinner. Arrived to a nice card from the staff on the table. Terrific service all night - took a group photo, made sure we had champagne for a toast, made suggestions, answered questions but without hovering or being too intrusive. Mostly great food - a couple of just okay dishes but mostly excellent. Only complaint would be the noise coming from the attached coffee shop space. Odd addition to an otherwise terrific restaurant.
