Chef and team at Brenner Pass created a beautiful meal in a COVID-safe setting. We loved all our dishes with the steak as a standout. Staff and customers wore masks and we were comfortable in our tented outdoor table. Well done Brenner Pass!

We love coming to Brenner Pass. They do everything possible during Covid to keep diners and their employees safe.

The food is always delicious and they have a great selection of wine.

Brenner Pass did a great job with their outdoor set up to be COVID sensitive. Everyone checked in outside. All servers and staff were masked. The tables were well spaced. The tent and heaters kept us very comfortable on a cool evening. We enjoyed fondue, which even stayed warm outside, bolognese bianco, burger, and schnitzel. Everything was delicious. We enjoyed our cocky, got great information on our wine, and closed out the meal with delicious mulled cider with spiced rum.

Great meal and great service. They gave us a free glass of champagne because it was our anniversary, which was really nice. We ordered 2 starters, 2 entrees, and two drinks and the total before taxes and tip was under $100. Great value for the upscale experience!

They have a great setup for having a great dinner during this crazy COVID season. Tables all out doors with heat and covered. Ambiance still hip and romantic.

Service was perfect. We were never for want. Always on top of everything without being on top of us.


And let's talk about the food. It is some of the best prepared food in North America. Not kidding.

This is a good restaurant. We're from out of town, and not regulars, but we had a very nice dinner for four. For those who like this style of cuisine, I would definitely recommend it -- ingredients were fresh and of good quality and the food was well prepared. We ate outside (due to Covid), as we wished, and found the tables well spaced and the service good. I read one or two mixed reviews of the fondue, but I thought it was a very good version of a classic Alpine fondue (the small pieces of bread served alongside potato, cornichons, and, on a separate plate so as not to upset our vegetarian, speck, were excellent, btw.

We enjoyed a lovely dinner here during an overnight trip from Washington DC. The restaurant had nice outdoor socially distanced seating and rules that made us feel safe eating there. It is located in an area in which they have a wide corner and all of the sidewalk that is completely reserved for their seating so you don’t have to be concerned about lots of casual foot traffic passing by. The service was excellent as was the food. We’ve eaten in a lot of great restaurants all over the world and we think this restaurant is definitely something special. My husband had the fondue burger, which he says is one of the top 2 burgers he has ever had in his life (and that’s really saying something!) and we would also definitely recommend the pistachio layer cake for dessert. We’ll absolutely return the next time we’re in Richmond and will be recommending it to friends.

We had an amazing experience at Brenner's Pass. The food was outstanding and service even better. Due to health and safety concerns, we dined on the outdoor patio. Staff all wore masks, tables were spaced far apart. They did a great job with social distancing. I highly recommend this restaurant to dine in or take out.

It was my first time here for a while and we thoroughly enjoyed the outside dining experience.
The menu was as eclectic as before and we both thoroughly enjoyed the starter and entrees. It’s definitely somewhere we will revisit soon.

Dinner was great! I'm doing keto and the chef accommodated my needs and modified the special to meet them. The zucchini with crème and pine nuts was wonderful as was the monkfish entrée. Grilled peach and tomato salad is a great starter. I'll be back!

Improvements have been made to the outdoor dining area, including better covering. Despite rain, we stayed dry under our well covered table. The staff are very friendly and efficient. The food is excellent.
