We walked from our hotel to this darling, quaint restaurant! Food was delicious and portion sizes were more than generous. Our waitress was very helpful in assisting us with making our decisions! Highly recommend Comfort! The name says it all!
Comfort is in a small space, but it has been arranged well. I didn’t feel crowded. The bar was a nice set up. We each had a cocktail while we waited for a table. The cocktails are inventive without being too crazy. The decor was delightfully eclectic. The tables were spaced enough so that it didn’t feel like we were dining with others sitting next to us. The food was fantastic. It was for lack of a better word, comforting. The pimento cheese was a healthy portion, and the seasonal sides were all done very well. The portions are pretty large, so heed the warnings of the waitstaff, or be prepared to take home some leftovers. We will for sure make Comfort a must on our list for friends when they visit Richmond.
It's a small space with a high ceiling, so it's noisy, but we sat back in the booths and it was better back there. The food was delicious, the service was great, and the ambiance is perfect. It is a little pricey, but I didn't mind paying it because all the proceeds go to FeedMore.
Great food and service. Food is a bit salty but still delightful
Southern cooking with something the entire family will enjoy. Everything was cooked to perfection and the service was timely and friendly...
Loved the food. Our only complaint was that when we arrived (and we had a reservation for 6:15pm, which we were on time for), the hostess told us to please keep in mind that they were busy and that another party had our table at 7:30pm. I felt like I was already being asked to leave before I ate. It was just a little odd to be greeted that way.
Always a great experience - food and decor are great!
Good food; good service; all good!
And there is always left over so we can enjoy again!
Overall good but service was a little slow getting food out. Food was overall good and of value.
Dinner was wonderful!! Delicious food as always! Service was great!
Great meal, artfully prepared! A little noisy, but not impossible to carry out conversation. Busy (Saturday) night, ran out of a few items on the menu, but not the biggest problem with so many good choices remaining.
Great food, great service, great atmosphere. Highly recommend for a couple or for group out.
Kylie was a dream! Amazing food that was so dank I couldn’t finish my entree when it came because we ate up so many delicious apps before it came. Comfort is a favorite and taking my family there for the first time was a treat. Thanks a million for the great time, Kylie!
My fiancé and I come here every so often as it was the location of our first date. The food is always impeccable & the service is always fantastic! You can’t go wrong with the banana pudding creme brûlée.
Dinner out with my mom. She ordered the sirloin and lump crab special and I got the vegetable plate. As always, everything was pretty good. The fried okra, bacon collard greens, and mac&cheese are always my favorites and did not disappoint. Tried the beets for the first time and liked them alot. Unfortunately, the black eyed peas were hard and tasted like they needed quite a bit more cooking, and the cornbread was a bit bland. We had way more food than we could eat and overall, our meal was delicious.
Always very great food and great service. One of the best restaurants in Richmond.
Tables were too close. Felt like we were having dinner with strangers.
We arrived on time for our reservation at 6. The restaurant was not crowded so we asked for a booth since we were a party of 4. The hostess told us that booths were reserved for larger parties and sat us by the front door on a cold night. We were cold the entire time and when we left 90 min later all the booths (about 3-4) were empty except one. We had business guests from Japan with us at dinner and they were cold as well.
The food was good, but nothing out of this world. I hadn't eaten at Comfort since it originally opened and probably won't be back as there are so many outstanding restaurants in Richmond.
One of my favorite restaurants! The menu is wonderful.....great comfort food! Yes, the restaurant is a bit noisy.....but just adds to the atmosphere. Very good wait staff.
I would recommend Comfort to anyone wanting a good homecooked meal. Lots of choices and healthy ones too. Loved the collards and I have never eaten them before. The banana creme brule was divine !!! Loved my Herb Chicken too.
Food was yummy. Service was just right. Only complaint is it is a vibrant bar scene, so very loud-conversation is difficult.
Overall very disappointed. Went on recommendation in Southern Living magazine. Had a reservation for 6 people, 4 of whom are large college boys (our son and friends), and were placed in a booth, which was just too tight with three of the boys elbow to elbow and dishware was overcrowded as well. Quality of the food was very mediocre; we are from North Carolina and were quite disappointed in the pimento cheese appetizer; fried medly appetizer was over breaded. Trout special was ok but salty, meatloaf which waiter said they're known for was also just ok but oily, roasted chicken pretty good. Vegetable sides (sweet potatoes, green beans, spinach) were good. Parking was also exceedingly difficult on a Saturday night. No complaints with the service per se. Overall, this is a fine place to just stop in to grab food; I expected more from a "reservations" restaurant that came so highly rated by Southern Living. Wish we had chosen a more standard Richmond restaurant for a nice night out with our son.
Wonderful food, EXCELLENT/ very patient server!!
Everything was nice, other than the street view of traffic.
I try to dine at Comfort every time I make a trip to Richmond. Great comfort food with an upscale twist.
For a Monday night, the food was sub-par, definitely not what I expected. Food actually tasted like it was premade and just heated, especially the macaroni and cheese and the pork loin. Maybe the weekend food is better?
Comfort lives up to its name. The food is good. More vegetarian options than just a salad. I chose a 5 item veggie plate. The atmosphere is comfortable, nothing fancy. Not too loud. We will be returning
Food was good. A few things under seasoned and the special wings very salty. Nothing was outstanding. We enjoyed ourselves,but probably won’t go back with all the options in town.
Comfort is fun and the servers are friendly but the prices are high in relation to the quality. I had the swordfish special which was good but not good enough to justify the price.
My experience was below expectations. The food was ok but the quality of meat was average.
The food and service was excellent.
We went on New Years Eve. Service was great & food was tasty. My meal was cold but I sent it back and they were very accommodating. The banana creme brûlée, Pork tenderloin, Grand Mariner sweet potatoes, squash casserole all very good. Kudos to the Chef. It's a quaint restaurant and they made you feel welcome.
Went for dinner with some friends in town. Ordered the pimento cheese and ritz cracker appetizer which was very good but unlike any pimento cheese spread we have ever had. We told the host we liked it but were stumped by the ingredients, he said “uh, I don’t know”. When we said it tastes similar to a crab or seafood dip without the seafood the reply was, “I really don’t know”. Usually, staff should know what is in food for allergy purposes or offer to bring the chef over to discuss. We were complimenting not complaining. Meal came out and food was good. Nothing spectacular that would have us rushing back. Cheddar grits and squash casserole good. Service was just so so. More the lack of knowledge or experience probably by front house staff. Overall good value for the price but not on my list for the future.
We had a great time.
My wife enjoyed her pork tenderloin, but my catfish was bland and rubbery. All of the sides were excellent. Staff seemed to be overwhelmed - it took almost 30 minutes before our entree orders were taken.
Always good food and reasonable prices. Will visit again!
We've dined at Comfort previously, and when it seemed it might be able to fit into our plans on a drive back from NC, we were excited to return. Especially since that would permit what passes for rush hour in Richmond to dissipate before we got back on the road for home. We were the first (and only) couple seated at opening -- again, an early dinner to accommodate travel plans -- and while the food was very good "comfort" food, the pacing and lack of attention to the only table in the restaurant with any patrons was pretty shocking. Our appetizer was the ONLY thing we ordered which would have had to be prepared "a la minute" since it was fried. Everything else -- and I mean EVERYTHING else -- could have been scooped onto a plate and brought out. It was so bad that I found myself leaving the table to walk back to the where the servers were congregating to ask if someone was out back butchering the pig that would become my chopped bbq platter. All-in-all it took us just shy of two hours to eat and pay. UFB.
Hands down, my favorite restaurant in Richmond, year after year. The best place to celebrate a special occasion. Great local, organic options! Comfort NEVER disappoints.
