Went for a last minute dinner. Great drinks, food was decent. Nothing outstanding...
Delicious food and great service. We loved everything we ordered.
My fish entree was over cooked, but my server was fantastic and quickly brought out a complementary salad to eat while waiting for a new piece to be cooked. Second piece was delicious. My husband would have liked a little more pimento cheese in his burger. Overall good though and great service.
The service was outstanding! Also - morning happy hour?! My Bloody Mary was $3! Had such a lovely time! Food was great, and service was fabulous!
The biscuit with pimento cheese chicken salad, scrambled egg, bacon and a drizzle of hot sauce...was AMAZING. The bloody mary's are spicy and delicious, too. Little Saint is cozy. My friend and I sat there for a long while and the waitstaff was patient and attentive! Thank you Little Saint.
Was really loud inside so we chose outdoors and were the only ones out there. Very pleasing experience!
Food an service was great. Very loud and hot in restaurant
Seating could be better for dates
Food and service were good. This was a small, quaint farm to table type dining. Portion sizes we're somewhat small, but the grit bowl was decent sized and delicious.
Started with some tasty drinks. Pimento appetizer was awesome & a great value. I got the fish entree - Mahi Mahi. It was lukewarm when I got & just ok.. a little fishy.
Bison steak entree was really good & gnocchi w arugula $ runny egg was yummy but chicken added was a little dry..
Previously the fish I got with a rice cake was amazing so a little disappointed on return trip..
Pretty good! Interesting selection of food and drink while also having the typical brunch options as well.
Go! Excellent food and service -recommend for foodies for the creative menu and excellent bar menu! Little Saint has so much going for it! Was a little warm (that’s the only reservation) was second time there and all were inside sweating. Despite the heat it’s a cozy comfortable choice with local ingredients.
Our server was excellent
Professional polite efficient
the portions were very small for the price, the food was just ok. It was really hot in the building. The service was wonderful. Not enough options on menu, more cocktails then menu items
I had the scallop special and it was wonderful. My husband has the rockfish and it was way overcooked and looked like 2 left over pieces. Our daughter has the grit bowl and enjoyed it. So 2 out of 3 were very good.
Really enjoyed Little Saint! Tried several dishes at our table and all were good. Scallops were the favorite! Drinks were great too. Will be going back for sure!
Overall our dinner was good. Our server was friendly and well-informed. The food was very good (mahi-mahi, Oysters, Scallops). The desserts (coconut chocolate pie, blueberry cheesecake) were also very good. The vegetables were the one weak point. The salad had too many unchewable stems, though my pet rabbit would have been in heaven. The broiled frisee was a good idea, but was quite tough, needed a steak knife. I would definitely go back. The oysters were a bit pricey, but for the most part the cost was reasonable and there were some real bargains on wine.

We went for Sunday Brunch to Little Saint. Food and service were good. They have a fair share of vegan options too. Would definitely go again!
I had previously enjoyed lunch here and was looking forward to dinner. The limited menu was disappointing, though, and the dessert that sounded wonderful was as hard as a hockey puck.
Careful and creative and not stuffy! We enjoyed the food intelligence at play here - beautiful presentation, thoughtful use of seasonal ingredients, great sourcing. We’ll be back!
Way too expensive. Limited menu. I have spent less money on much better restaurants.
Food was good, but not exceptional. Service and ambiance however were very nice and their cocktails are solid. Would recommend, but wouldn’t say that’s it’s a must visit. If you’re looking to have a solid meal and drinks it’s a good spot overall. Front patio is the spot especially if it’s not too hot out.
Service was fantastic -- very impressive.
Limited menu options meant everyone order the steak or the scallops
Catfish as catch of the day???
Kado Toast was excellent
Greens in strawberry salad too bitter
Scallops cooked perfectly
Steak was very, very average -- to the point of being disappointing.
Excellent food and menu. Many locally sourced foods. Specials were good and drink menu excellent. Service attentive and pleasant. Sat on patio and relaxed. Environment easy going.
Great server. Very tight seating. Delicious gnocchi
Seating area is very small and crowded. Noise level really ruined our dining experience. Food was very good, especially the seared scallops. Server was very friendly and offered full information about menu items. Not our kind of evening we enjoy for family dinner, but would be fine for others. Would recommend to others, selectively.
Little Saint is like finding a needle in a haystack. Never disappointed - great locale, food, service - all gold star!
Extremely slow service for a Monday night with very few other people present. Staff seemed to be chatting at the bar most of the time. Overhead music quite loud as well. Food was all delicious, may consider takeout if we go back.
The waitress was very helpful and was there when we needed her but not intrusive. The food was excellent. The music was a little too loud. Hard to have a conversation with others close by talking and the music.
We were seated outside as requested, but had to wait almost an hour before our food arrived. The gnocchi, billed as an entree, was an appetizer size portion, bistro steak was barely warm, vegan dish almost inedible. Very disappointing, particularly in view of prices charged.
It was great - good food good service good company!
The best meal of my life was a 10 in Vancouver. This was a 9 right here in Richmond. The server was exceptional! The drinks had one large ice cube that didn't melt and destroy the fabulous drink. Go here and make them give you the crazy server with the red hair.
Little Saint is on my "go as often as possible list". Attention to detail and flavor were on point. Gorgonzola pimiento cheese, ridiculous cauliflower, small plates are highlights.
Casual spot with delicious food and great service. Plenty of vegetarian and non-vegetarian options.
Little Saint is a treasure - inventive, delicious food in a casual city atmosphere. We had seared scallops that were astounding. It feels like a casual neighborhood spot, but the food is good enough to make it a destination for a special occasion. Wonderful addition to Richmond's restaurant scene!
main courses (gnocchi, grits bowl) were very good, desserts less so..suggestion: don't mess with key lime pie..tofu?..don't think so..
Great food! Portions could be a tiny bit bigger. But I leave this place.
They are highly rated and have won awards so maybe we caught them on a bad day. Server was not friendly and almost borderline bored with waiting on us. Table was sticky and not clean, way too many flies in the restaurant also. When you factor in the limited menu and high prices it was not all I had heard about from it’s press clippings. Not sure if it is worth another chance as it has too many bugs to work out for our taste.
