The waitress did an outstanding job on a busy Sunday evening. She was the only wait staff available!

Nice menu. The seafood parparelle was very rich. The salmon was cooked perfectly. We shared an order of calamari.

We really like the ambiance of Mosaic. The food, when prepared correctly, is quite good. However, one dish in particular is very inconsistent, despite details given to the wait staff. I even offered to speak to the cook about specifics. It had to do with a request to have cheese melted so the entire dish could be served warm. Only one time in our many visits has it been prepared accurately. It shouldn't be that difficult. Additionally, I wish the same salad items could be availabe for lunch and dinner.

Came with another couple that we have dinner with at Mosaic because it is close to our homes.
Good food and great to take home leftovers for the next day. Waitress was great.

Waitress was friendly but largely absent, as we ate outside. You were out of iced tea, which was a disappointment.

the food was good, i had Chicken with Risotto i'm a bit limited as i don't eat red meat and I am gluten free

there were dozens of teenagers there for homecoming which increased the noise level substantially but it is still a very nice resturant.

The server was personable and efficient.

Sat outside, beautiful day! Food was excellent! Server was nice but not particularly attentive after we got our food. She was serving inside and outside...maybe she was overwhelmed? Never got requested lemon, had to request more coffee and checks.

Mosaic is riding on its reputation more than the quality of its experience. The food is average.

Enjoyed my first visit and will go back. The scrambled egg was too salty to eat. Fortunately the food around it was not quite as salty.

Made reservations for dinner to celebrate my daughter's birthday here because of the positive reviews. We were pleased we were seated immediately in a booth even though we were a few minutes early. The decor and ambiance of the restaurant was very inviting but unfortunately the quality of the food and service was sub-par. My husband had the Filet Mignon which which was more cooked than medium-rare as ordered. He was also missing the bleu cheese crisps that was suppose to come with the entrees, My daughter had the Ribeye Steak Frites and I had the Seared Salmon which was overcooked and rubbery. The spinach and sauteed veggies was more of a cold salad. The service was awful. Our waiter didn't fill our water glasses. We even placed the empty water glasses by end of the table. We had to ask at least twice. The restaurant was not crowded so we couldn't understand why he seemed so frazzled and rushed & kept passing our table but not noticing the empty glasses. Oh well, suffice to say we will NOT be back. The restaurant was overpriced and the quality of food and service sub-par.

This restaurant is a little gem in Richmond. It's cozy, although always busy, and the food is wonderful. They've changed the menu over the years but mostly for the better to keep in interesting. It's a wonderful spot to meet friends or have a quick business luncheon. Not overly quiet so keep this in mind. Everything is cooked to order and the kitchen is within view. I definitely recommend reservations.

Excellent service and food. Love the diverse menu with so many options and healthy choices. Great appetizers - the crab cakes, the fried green tomatoes with cheese, etc. prices were very reasonable giving me the option of getting two appetizers.
I like that I could reserve a table rather than waiting in line for a table.

Everything was good except the service. They seemed to be short staffed on servers. It took forever to get our food, and then we never saw our server again. He was trying to wait on people inside, and outside, of the restaurant.

This place has a great vibe. Service was outstanding. Our waiter was attentive and up-beat. The food was so-so. The first dish I had ordered- chicken and risotto- was sent back. While the risotto was tasty, the chicken seemed almost under cooked. The meal didn't look very appetizing either sitting on a bed of its own juices.. The salmon and veggies were tasty but looked like a lump of salmon sitting on a heap of jumbled vegetables. All in all we had a good time but I probably wouldn't go back any time soon.

Waited 45-50 minutes for three brunches while others came in after us and got their food promptly. Asked waitress about it and she was rude. Got sick after meal and am sure it was food. Overpriced and disappointed!!!!

To build in my last review - great food, horrible service. Sat at the bar and the lady bartender and a server argued about a wrong drink order. Didn’t care for the atmosphere - left before I even got service.

Delicious burgers and the fries are awesome. This is my third time here (left the first time after no service for ten minutes at the bar) - It is the attitude of the host and servers that stop me from giving this restaurant a five star. The drinks are measured and my wife wasn’t sure they put any alcohol in her Moscow Mule.

Eat here with the understanding that the staff is underwhelming.

Food is great but a little pricey.
We had requested/reserved a booth for lunch and did not get seated in one.
Disappointed.

The food was mediocre. My wife’s salad was average at best.. my salmon was good but the garnishments were terrible.. the vegetables and potatoes were raw.
Usually love this place but it wasn’t up to par!

Has the Pork Chop. It was very tough and no taste at all. Husband had the Mac and Cheese and he said it was okay. Not as good as before.
