About Chez Foushee
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.

Chez Foushee Ratings and Reviews
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
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 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.
Quiet setting for nice birthday celebration. Unfortunately, parking was a challenge--which is usually the case in that area. Our son, the birthday celebrant, wanted a lunch-size steak but did not find that on the menu. He ordered a "filet-quality" burger from the menu, but he was a bit disappointed. We suggested he ask the waitress to speak to the chef about his entree "wish" but we couldn't get him to do so. Regardless, it was a nice atmosphere for our lunch. Our waitress was a delight!
On of our favorite restaurants. This trip, however, was marred by the actual temperature of the restaurant. The heat would blast on and the room got almost unbearably hot. Noticed people at the other tables fanning themselves also so it wasn't just our table. Did ask the waiter to adjust the heat but it would be somewhat cool for a few minutes then the heat would come on and make it very uncomfortable.
Food is consistently good and the restaurant is very beautiful.
Our dinner was a fabulous seared duck breast with brandied cherry duck au jus and goat cheese polenta. We've been here for brunch several times and finally got there for dinner. It did not disappoint. We live a couple of hours away and this is always a favorite when we come to Richmond.
Dinner with friends for 5 was delightful! Our table was ready when we arrived! The table setting allowed we 5 to sit 2 on each side and one at the end. This arrangement really facilitated conversation and sharing of special cocktails! The Razor Clam special was very good and the French Quarter Bouillabaisse was full of shellfish, excellent! The other entrees, duck breast and filet were very good also as were Lemon Butter Cake and Crème Brule! Coffee was very good, could have offered refill! We'll definitely be back soon!
