About Chez Foushee

It’s pronounced foo-SHAY.

Chez Foushee is located on the corner of E. Grace Street & Foushee Street. Foushee Street is named after Richmond’s first mayor, William Foushee, whose surname was likely pronounced with a French inflection during his time. But over the years, the shay has evolved into shee, as it has for the restaurant’s name. Andrew & Dennis passed the baton to Whitney Cardozo retiring after 28 years of unwavering hospitality.

We answer to both foo-SHAY & foo-SHEE, and we look forward to seeing you for another 28 years!

    Classic French Menu was good. Salmon was too crusty. Steak Frites was pre cut which is odd. Overall food was fine and ambiance was good but not a good value.

    Our dinner was fantastic. The trout was perfectly cooked, and the oyster appetizer could have made dinner for most of us. Our guests also raved about the shrimp and grits. We will definitely go back soon.

    Our experience from the moment we stepped in the door till we stepped out for pictures was nothing less than magical. We could not find one thing or detail about anything that was not extraordinary. Every detail is just so thought out and the food is absolutely scrumptious. We wrote the owner Whitney Cardozo to tell her personally how wonderful everything was. It really is like stepping into a romantic French movie with food just as magical. I don't think anything in RVA compares!

    Had a great time. Went on Valentine's Day, so the menu was probably a little pricier than usual. However, they knocked it out of the park. The seating was a little tight, and we were really close to the piano which made it a bit loud. However, the food was fantastic. The risotto was great, and the lemon cake for dessert was out of this world - way, way out, like a dream! The wait staff was great, nice ambiance, good location. Will return to try their regular menu since this was our first time!

    It’s been a few years but still impressed with Chez foushee. Risotto was creamy perfect and the duck breast was served whole over creamer potatoes. Delicious. Beautiful presentation and a lovely bottle of Sancerre for $45. Of course the lemon butter cake amazed as ever. Even took a slice home. Don’t pass on that. And likely need some tea or coffee to wash it down so worth it!

    Very elegant. The cocktails weren't as well-crafted or on-point as they should have been. The food was fantastic. Our waiter was not. He was not "bad" but certainly wasn't the level one expects in a restaurant of this caliber. Cute though.

    Very poor service. Had to ask for refills, bread, steak overcooked ( blamed on bad thermometer) cold temp inside( wore coat whole time). Never received coffee so finally gave up and checked out with mgr. apologetic and took cost of steak off, but still disappointing evening.
    Chez FousheeResponded on January 28, 2020
    Dear Tina, I am truly sorry for your experience. We would have gladly redone your steak to your liking and most definitely could turn the heat up for you if we had been aware! I am always cold so I know how uncomfortable it can be. Our goal is never to disappoint and we will work harder to not let something like this happen again. Thank you for your feedback and I hope you will give us another try. Sincerely, Whitney (owner)

    We were very pleased with our visit! Upon arriving, we were greeted like an old friend. I had placed in the comments of my reservation that the meal was to celebrate a birthday. Both the host and our waitress acknowledged this and wished my husband a happy birthday! The service was good, our waitress was knowledgeable and efficient. The meal was quite tasty and the desserts were amazing. Definitely try the lemon cake, it was the best I've ever had!

    We were completely delighted with this special New Year’s Eve dinner. And, we rarely give such glowing reviews The flavors and presentation were exceptional. We did not expect so much flavor from the beef entree. In fact, it surpassed many , much more expensive steak restaurants. We live in Washington DC area, but will definitely return whenever we are in Richmond.
