Food was fantastic. Get the Mac and Cheese side! The only thing keeping me from a 5 star rating was their kids menu was lacking.
This use to be one of my favorite restaurants . Not so much anymore . The hostess sat us in the coldest spot in the restaurant and I had to keep my coat on the entire time . Being freezing while eating ruined the experience . And I had made a note on the reservation , that it was my birthday dinner
In town for my daughter’s marathon. I thought the food and staff was amazing. A must try for real southern food!
Fantastic as always. We’ve never had a bad meal at Comfort.
Just as the name implies, the restaurant specializes in upscale comfort food. Our food came to the table hot, and our server was attentive to our needs. There is nothing fancy about the decor, but the ambiance suits the menu nicely. That being said, the menu is a bit pricy for what is served, but we like it there.
Comfort is a wonderful option for anyone visiting Richmond that wants delicious Southern food in a hip, trendy environment. We went after getting drinks at the Jefferson Hotel, just two blocks away! Loved all of the sides and the appetizers, especially the beets, seasonal carrots, grits, mac and cheese. Also - the profits go to a local food nonprofit, sealing the deal on this place.
We had a great meal. The fried okra, carrots and catfish were outstanding. Everything else including the cocktails was very good. The only complaint was that there was a loud, large group in the same area. There was nothing the restaurant could do but it was a little bothersome. I highly recommend the restaurant.
Food was ok, but we wouldn’t go back.
Besides the lack of service, where our waters weren’t filled for a long time, our food was overly salted. From my main entree, where I couldn’t finish my steak because it was so salty, to our fried green tomatoes which we also couldn’t finish due to the salt.
If I’m paying $26 dollars for a steak, and I can’t stand to finish it, and I don’t even have water to help wash it down, then that’s a super big bummer.
I think next time I’ll skip it and hit up Lunch & Supper instead.
Visited comfort before seeing a show at Virginia Rep. Our out of town company loved it so much. Delicious food, great service.
The food at Comfort meets the definition of comfort food. Restaurant brings the best of home cooking to a modern experience. Noise level fairly high. Seating is a bit cheek to jowl (for Richmond VA standards, spacious by NYC standards). Staff are friendly.
Comfort is appropriately named! This is comfort food done right. I received excellent recommendations from my server. I love pimento cheese and very much enjoyed that from the appetizer menu. The squash soup on their specials menu was the best I've ever had. It was uniquely prepared and incredibly flavorful. And the meatloaf with mushrooms and wine gravy sauce was fantastic. I highly recommend this gem of a restaurant.
Delicious food. Loud restaurant though.
Good food, chef was wonderful explaining the plates to our friends in Spanish, great experience...
It was ok.n es update
Food was great but the waitress seemed as if she would rather be somewhere else
Expected more. Prices are steep and food was mediocre at best.
We love Comfort. Took OOT visitor before going to November Theatre. Our only disappointment was that Jason was in the house and had posted on his instagram that he would be there, however he did not step out of the kitchen while we were there to say hello to his guests. We would have liked to have met him as we are big fans.
Great view, nice deck and beach, comfy beds, breakfast could use more variety. Our dog had a great time, he is still trying to figure out the elevator. Doors close, they open again and you are somewhere else!
We had a great dinner. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. We will be going back again for sure.
I will definitely go back again.
If you are looking for true southern food, this is not the place for it.
Delicious food. I grew up in the South and now live in NYC. This place immediately brings me back to my childhood. Numerous vegetarian options (every side dish could be a main feature)
Food was delicious and the service was friendly. A great meal!
Great food but the seats are uncomfortable.
Great service and food was delicious!
The restaurant specializes in "comfort food" that is a bit elevated above diner level. Our meal was delicious and the ambience is "neighborhood bar" comfortable.
Service great, food was good, although the chicken breast (on the 1/2 chicken) was very dry.
I cannot live happily for long without the yummy vegetable sides at Comfort. Easy to do gluten-free here, also.
Fabulous food and service.
Perfect evening. There was a large group in front so they automatically seated us toward the rear in what turned out to be a perfect location...quiet and full of downhome charm. Service was excellent and southern food was very good. Would not hesitate to recommend Comfort to anyone visiting Richmond.
Fantastic meal! For apps we tried the fried okra (which was made gluten-free! Yay!) and it was fantastic. Cut length-wise instead of in rounds, the okra was crispy and not greasy in the least. Delicious ham rolls and pimento spread, too! The entrees and sides were all wonderful. We had a group of 7 people, so the sides were served family style, which was fun. Most of the table came from out of town, so I feel like Comfort showed them how amazing our restaurants are here in Richmond. The service was perfect...our waiter was very accommodating and friendly. The out-of-towners were on expense accounts, so we needed everyone's checks to be separate and that wasn't an issue. The only bummer was that someone's 3 ribs didn't make it in the leftovers box. Those ribs were marinated, boiled, baked and fried...ham flavored and so delicious we all had a taste. The person who ordered them was so sad when they got back to the hotel and saw they were missing. But it's cool! Those things happen. Will be going back myself soon, and will recommend Comfort whenever someone asks for a great place to go.
Comfort has been a favorite for a long time. We drove from Harrisonburg to Richmond this time because we missed the banana pudding. The smoked pork tenderloin was great!
This restaurant donates its profits to Feedmore. Food was excellent, drinks were good and service was great.
Amazing appetizers! We had the pickled platter, the mixed fry and the pimento starter - outstanding! Really good drinks. Yummy grits. The pulled pork was delightful.
Delicious food, very loud when the place is full.
Food was not that great; and the drinks was horrible. I would not recommended to anyone. There was nothing comfortable about it and Flys were flying everywhere you literally had to keep food and drinks covered. Yuck!
Seated fast service was very slow. Had bartender was our server. Food was awful!!!!! To salty could eat it.
Food was outstanding! Only issue was that a couple of dishes were oversalted - the greens in particular. Nice space, but it was very noisy. Service was good, but a little slow. Waiter was great after he warmed up. We had pickled vegetables to start, catfish with okra and mashed potatoes, fried green tomatoes with roasted beets and cheddar grits, other sides were macaroni & cheese and greens. Beets and okra and mac & cheese were wonderful! Catfish, potatoes, and grits were fantastic!
Been there twice now. The food is amazing! I had a pork tenderloin with red wine applesauce the first visit and a roasted half chicken the second. Both were cooked perfectly and had such amazing flavors. Girlfriend got the meatloaf both visits because she enjoyed it so much. Service each time was a bit lacking. The wait between clearing the table and getting the bill was a little long. Also, after ordering a second beer I never got it. Food-amazing! Service could be improved.
The ham rolls and pickled veggies are a must (put some pickled red onion on the ham rolls... you'll thank me later!)! My friend & I split the veggie plate which is 4 or 5 of the sides. Holy. Moly. We were stuffed!! I've been coming to comfort for years & have never had anything that I didn't love!
