Chez Foushee opened in the Fall of 1989 as a small deli and catering operation offering carry-out and boxed lunches. As business continued to flourish a number of renovations occurred and the entire building was purchased in the Fall of 1995. Located in historic Monroe Ward, just blocks from the venerable Jefferson Hotel, we are situated close to downtown and the Broad Street arts district. Chez Foushee offers lunch and carry-out Tuesday through Friday, as well as dinner every Tuesday through Saturday. We offer brunch Sunday mornings. Our menus change seasonally with an emphasis on fresh, local and sustainable ingredients. On site catering is available for private dinner and cocktail parties. Please inquire about full-service offsite catering.

We really enjoyed our brunch. The night prior we were in a noisy restaurant so the ambience at Chez Foushee was much appreciated!

Food was amazing, we could see how much effort the chef has put in to make it perfect! We had the Mussels for the appetizer, I ordered the pan seared cod and my wife ordered shrimp in creole sauce and both the dishes were just perfect! It was verycrowded and sometimes you will not get your silent corner! I had requested to bring a lit candle on our dessert as it was my wife’s bday but that was forgotten. But the quality of the food trumped everything else! Hats off to the Chef! Thank you!

Fantastic service from Jason with several menu suggestions that were absolutely spot on!
The toffee pudding for dessert was an insane ending to a great meal.
A keeper on the Richmond dinner list!

Filet was nice and so was the butternut squash bisque. However, the Rockfish was very bland and improperly paired with off tasting peas. They were also out of the sweet potato fondant which I was looking forward to with my Filet and they replaced with a risotto which wasn't the best pairing. Dessert was an excellent finish just like how the Starter began it the dinner. Service was a little slow but that was the kitchen as our server was on point.

Have been a long-time Chez Foushee devotee. Our "go-to" Valentine's lunch, and regular spot for dinner with friends. Just made my last visit on Valentines day. The service was awful and the food was bad. I don't know if this is due to new management. Ironically, the server we had has been very attentive in the past. Didn't even know if had specials for Valentine's day. Had to finally get up and ask for a desert menu.

Sadly, our last visit to Chez Foushee

Delightful find. Lovely setting, great service and scrumptious food. Perfect for a Sunday morning brunch or even dinner.

Delicious french food. Great atmosphere and ambience. Nicely lit and great place to dine with friends or as a couple. Looking forward to returning soon.

Just like the star rating says.... Perfect dinner.
We were enjoying ourselves so much, we lost track of time, and were a bit late for our subsequent event.
The restaurant is under new ownership, and they are making nice touches to what was always a fine place for dinner.

We went for a pre-show dinner, and enjoyed good cocktails, very good food, and a great bottle of wine. Alas, we ran out of time and couldn't sample the desserts. The staff was welcoming, efficient, and friendly. We will definitely return!

We love Chez Foushee and have been there many times in the last couple years. This was our first visit since the ownership change. Many things were the same. The cocktails were great, the warm French bread was excellent and the ambience was relaxed and comfortable. Unfortunately, the main reason we went there was disappointing. Even though we were promised that the bouillabaisse recipe was not changing, it did change and significantly. It was good, but unfortunately it was a big step down from a dish that I considered one of the best in Richmond. We will go back after a few months and see if things have changed, but this time we were disappointed.

Loved it. Made reservations before heading to see Finding Neverland. Everything about this place is amazing - cocktails, live instrumentalists, food, staff. Added this place to a top location for date night.
