    The food was amazing and the ambience cozy. The four of us shared a fondue pot and felt like we were at a lodge in the alps. I had the lamb gnocchi and it’s literally what dreams are made of. I finished the meal with the semifreddo dessert. It was heavenly! The service was amazing too.

    Brenner Pass is our favorite restaurant in Richmond. Unpretentious yet refined, both the food and drink are always consistently very good, and so is the service. Black Lodge next door needs to learn from Brenner's excellency!

    My mom just moved to Virginia and I was visiting for Christmas. Tradition to do dinner and the Nutcracker. She put me in charge of the reservations and we were not disappointed! The food was AMAZING! The portions are perfect for splitting a few dishes and the cost was on par with what I had expected. Our server had just moved to Richmond and so we connected on that as well as her providing a list of cool spots for my mom to check out! It felt like family and the food was absolutely perfect. Thank you to Brenner Pass and the staff for such a great experience!

    Really delicious food - "the best I've ever enjoyed in Richmond" according to my 84yo dad! Our party had a variety of entrees from whole trout to duck to steak to pasta and every single thing was excellent. A tad noisy for my older parents but that's an individual issue. Definitely recommend.

    Overall the ambiance of the restaurant is spot on - loved the vibe and the decor. The space is very loud, which we knew to be the case from other reviews, so we weren't bothered by it... and honestly with us being loud people, it worked out best! The food was marginal for the price point. I have had much, much better food in Richmond within this range and probably will not return for a meal. I may consider sitting at the bar for a cocktail before traveling to another Scotts Addition location. I'd say give it a shot but keep your expectations on the quality and flavor of the food reasonable. We were not blown away but we did have a good evening out with friends.

    It's a limited menu. The food was very good. I had the ribeye and it was wonderful, a lot of glaze so I'd likely ask for less, next time. It had an amazing smokiness to it and cooked perfectly. I was taking my leftover steak home and the waitress informed me that she had accidentally dropped my steak. She did offer me a complimentary dessert but we opted out on desserts during this visit.

    Always a favorite, we appreciate their creative, seasonal menus and consistently outstanding quality. While they are thoughtful about every aspect of every dish -- raw bar to small plates to entrees to desserts -- we were particularly impressed by the salads this trip. Each had a distinctive flavor and texture profile. A light touch with the dressings and very generous portions for a satisfying, fresh distraction. All praise always to the whole kitchen, bar, and floor staff.

    We had a wonderful and festive evening - adults and tween kids, prior to a holiday party. The atmosphere at Brenner Pass was sparkling. Our server, Selena, was a delight and all of the food was delicious. We decided to have fondue for the table and then supplement with a selection of small plates. It was just the thing for a large group with varied palates! The adults started with an assortment of cocktails and everyone was quite pleased. I am a huge a fan of the Cap Gun Stand-off! The carrots are a magical addition to the menu and we couldn’t get enough. The oyster lovers in the crowd were deeply satisfied and the beet salad, octopus and flamkuchen were all hits. The wine list was rife with great options and we loved the bottle we chose. All together it was a perfect evening and we can’t wait to get back and try more!

    Very nice restaurant in a great location. The menu is limited to a few entrees, but was wonderfully tasty. The atmosphere is somewhat noisy due to the ascetics of an open forum.
