Overall, we really loved going to Pasture to celebrate New Year's Eve. We ordered the pimento cheese, meatballs, and frito pie as appetizers and they were all delicious! My husband ordered the steak which we all agreed was the best meal of the night. The pork chops were also tasty.My only criticism would be that the sweet potato puree was overpowered by a floral flavor, so the sweet potato didn't really come through. Drinks were fun and service was great! Thanks for an awesome meal!

We love to get a variety of small plates- each one is better than the next. Highlights were ribs, red beans with rice, kale salad. Sadly, they were out of chicken livers, so we didn't get to try them. Next time!

Disappointed that the beef tar tar was taken off the menu. Stayed in Richmond from VB just for that dish! Please put it back on the menu!!! We had the new version of it, it was good, but not what we wanted. Thank you. We are fans though.

We had a delicious meal. When we last went, we were with festive group of people in their early 30's. This was just a quiet dinner for us older folks, but equally enjoyable. The choices of small plates make it fun for me. My husband likes entrees. Win win.

Pasture's chef is a native of our SWVA county, and we couldn't be more proud of the incredibly hip, diverse, and accessible spot he's created in RVA. Delicious bites, inventive cocktails, and a fantastic atmosphere with a touch of down-home comfort. Open kitchen means everyone's available to see and to ask and to tell what's what. Go early and go often!

I wife and I, my daughter and son-in-law and my son and daughter-in-law I went to Pasture before a Nutcracker performance. When I take people to Pasture the first time, they usually are not sure what to make of it. It’s a fairly limited menu, and some of the items seem a little different. Nonetheless, people usually are very happy with what they get. This trip was no different. I got the Porkchop which was very good. Two got the chicken and dumplings, which I chalked up to the fact that they were not sure about the other items. They too enjoyed theirs. My adventurous son got the duck breast and spoke highly of it.

All in all, a very good time.

This was our first trip to Pasture and it definitely won’t be our last. Our group was in town just for the night and I can’t say enough good things. The staff was excellent, the food was to die for, the drinks were delicious and creative, and the atmosphere was casual and fun. I highly recommend this place!

We dine at Pasture frequently. The food and service are always great. They have an extensive craft beer selection and a menu that will please almost anyone. On this visit we enjoyed the pimento cheese (always a favorite), the brisket BBQ sandwich and burgers. Delicious all around.

Pasture is located on an evolving section of Grace Street and is convenient to a number of performance venues, making it the perfect spot for pre- or post-event food and drink. Always a good bet.

Had a chance to dine at Pasture and had previously dined here a year or more ago. We were surprised to see the restaurant nearly empty and it seems the novelty and quality may be falling off with so many other great restaurants having opened in the area. Service was great and the restaurant was generally clean (minor greasy spot on the tile floor under the table). Food quality was off a little with the duck having been heavily salted. Chicken and potato gnocchi was very good. Surprised there were not more choices on the menu. Would definitely go back but would look at other options first.

Delicious modern take on southern cooking. The dishes managed to be comfort foot and innovative at the same time. Our server was great - very attentive. Decor is quirky industrial - which is fun although not overly comfy. Overall a great experience - we would go back!

Had dinner here before TSO concert at the Coliseum. Server did a great job of ensuring we received our meals and drinks quickly. Very attentive throughout. My wife and I are eating a plant based diet. There were several options to accommodate but at least two of the plates were 1 Star - cornbread and corn hot cakes. In both cases we took a couple bites and bailed. So bland and the hot cakes seemed like hard tack from the Civil War. The veggies surrounding it were equally tasteless. All the meat eaters raves about their meals...so a mixed bag.

We had high hopes for our meal at Pasture. Unfortunately, it was just average. The highlights included the crackers and pimento cheese and pork rinds. The remainder of the dishes were adequate but did not stand out. This includes the chicken and dumplings that were under seasoned. The cocktails were nothing too spectular either. If you are looking for southern / comfort food in Richmost, then keep searching.

I booked Pasture on a whim for a Saturday dinner for our trip to Richmond and we were not disappointed! Our waiter was very knowledgable about the menu and really seemed to enjoy his job and giving recommendations, which I always really appreciate! Overall great, warm, friendly vibe and amazing food. I ended up with the chicken and dumplings and green beans (which were SO GOOD) and my boyfriend got the steak. Both delicious, highly recommend!

We went to Pasture to celebrate my husband's birthday. I made a special request for my husband to be embarrassed if possible ;) The staff provided him with a free shot and a pumpkin! We enjoyed the food, even if it was rather over-priced. All the staff was welcoming except our waiter who gave a pretentious impression, and did not wish my husband a happy birthday. Will we return to Pasture? Maybe. But to be honest, we enjoy restaurants where everyone is welcome-not just well-to-do hipsters.

Pasture never disappoints. The servers are top-notch - very professional and very friendly. The food is always delicious, and the menu always has something new and exciting on it. The cocktails are a little pricey, but always worth the money (bartender Beth rocks!). John is the host with the most.

My friend and I came from Williamsburg for an event at the Dominion Arts Theater. I googled good restaurants nearby and Pasture for the most part had good reviews. I ordered the burger and my friend got the chicken and dumplings. Her dish was far superior than my burger. My burger was only luke warm. Hopefully next time will be a better experience.
