The Shaved Duck has one of the best bar staffs around. The cocktails are absolutely worth the trip. The food is also terrific - though we tend to stick to the small plates/sandwich menu when we go, and enjoy beverages! They are doing a good job with COVID regulations with staff and table separation.

Salads were excellent. Novel use of butternut lettuce in a “wedge” salad. Went “cheap” and split a 1/2 lb. burger with my bride - plenty. Try the scotch smoked old fashion - excellent. The service was attentive, not overbearing. Our waitperson was engaging - did a good job. Second time at this eatery. Will go back.

The Shaved Duck goal is 'not just a meal, an experience'. Interaction with the staff, the build and variety of the food and the drinks, did make this visit an experience. And the food was great for being original, very tasty and easy to share with a friend.

The service was great and the ambience was nice. The food, however, was average at best. A couple of things (hamburger bun) were inedible. Maybe it was just an “off” night?

The Shaved Duck Restaurant - Midlothian
Responded on September 12, 2020

Thank you for the review. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed our service. I'm sorry that you found the house-made brioche bun inedible. It looks like you had some of our most popular items; to see that you left dissapointed is unacceptable. I would be interested to hear what else was "inedible" so that I can address any potential mistakes. Our manager was under the impression you were satisfied after stopping by your table. However, we will always fix mistakes if given the opportunity.

Another birthday celebrated at The Shaved Duck. We tried their brand new Cinnamon Rolls as part of the bread plate appetizer and they are the best I’ve ever had. I’d have bought 4 more to take home for breakfast the next day if I could have. It was excellent as always!

Thank you for your feedback, Robert. We're sorry you did not enjoy your experience with us last Saturday. That evening was especially cold & dark, given the flash flooding & gross weather. It's disappointing to see that you percevied"no value" in our menu, as we've worked hard to diversify our offerings since COVID-19 hit, but understand that you were not impressed. We appreciate the kind words regarding our service & staff, and we thank you for sharing that positive aspect with us.

While we have enjoyed past visits, this was less memorable. My entree was inedible due to salt level. Husband's was okay but not special. No drink refills and few checks. Planned to have dessert, but decided against it after waiting for the server to reappear.

Responded on August 20, 2020

Thank you for this feedback, Shari. We apologize your visit last Saturday left you wanting. Your server relayed that the crab cakes were over-salted, but indicated you did not care for a replacement. Please know we want to correct our mistakes & recook/replace any dish that is unsatisfactory. With respect to the service provided, it is clear you did not receive the level of quality we strive for. We were understaffed that evening due to flooding/weather & hope you can forgive our shortcomings.

Steak not cooked as ordered. Price of special increased by $4.00 from waiter’s quote. Craft beer advertised as 14 oz. pour came as 8 oz pour but billed as 14 oz.

The Shaved Duck Restaurant - Midlothian
Responded on July 21, 2020

David, I spoke with your server to gather info on your evening. I'm truly sorry that the steak was not cooked to your liking, had you notified your server it would have been replaced and taken off your check. However, I saw no advertised special on the bill; I'm unsure of what you're referencing. The beer you had is only served in a 14 oz glass, I'm sorry you felt slighted. I apologize for the negative experience and only ask that next time, we are afforded the chance to remedy the situation.

In one word FABULOUS- in two words UNBELIEVABLY AMAZING. This was our and our friends first time here but we will definitely be back. For years we have been driving to Richmond for after church brunch We may not have eaten in every restaurant in Richmond, but I bet we hit most. The Shaved Duck puts them all to shame. The drinks were spot on - we had margaritas, “Wake me up before you go-go”, Mimosas and scotch/whiskey. With our drinks we had the bread plate, all freshly made, homemade and delicious. The chocolate “donuts” were amazing.For our meals we had duck hash that was moist and perfect, Nashville hot chicken (may have been Memphis) that was spicy, crispy and delicious (recommend maple syrup with it, and a custom omelette that was perfect. We all agreed the food was 5 star. The service was quick, on time, courteous and seamless. The owner and staff are friendly, knowledgeable in their craft and made this a totally enjoyable dining experience. Can’t wait to try dinner and other meals. I often hesitate to recommend restaurants to others, but I recommend the Shaved Duck to everyone. Our new favorite place.
