    Best meal I’ve had in a while. Our waitress was really knowledgeable and personable. The table got the lamb lollipops/ Appalachian cheese platter/ and shrimp appetizers- all so good! Two at the table ordered rockfish, one duck, one ribeye… all excellent! The sides were good, drinks on point, and desserts amazing! Can’t wait to go back!

    Great Shrimp and "grits" polenta. Old Fashioneds (4 for the table) delivered without garnishes. Good rockfish and a little over complicated accompaniments. Desserts tiny and apple crumble overpowering with a potpourri flavor. Very nice service.

    We were visiting our grandson at the University of Richmond and treated him to dinner at The Stables. Everything was delicious. The lamb appetizer the best lamb chops we have ever had. We ended our fabulous dinner with the flight of chocolates. Each one better than the last. Loved the atmosphere and had a wonderful server. W This will definitely be our number one choice when visiting Richmond in the future.

    Another fine dinner at The Stables! We had out-of-town guests and this was their first time dining at The Stables. I am so glad that they got to try the new fall menu. So many exquisitely executed dishes to choose from. My Berkshire pork chop was absolutely one of the best pork dishes I have ever had. Perfectly pink and not overcooked. A nice bottle of French Chablis accompanied all. As always, the service was warm, welcoming, and first rate. Heartfelt thanks and Bravo to all!!!

    Amazing farm to table food and craft cocktails. Flew out from California to take my friend out for bday celebration. After much research we picked The Stables. Emily our server was delightful and made our experience perfect in every way. This place is a hidden speakeasy gem. Must try!

    The food was great! Between my friends and I, we we had the rib-eye, the bone-in pork chop, and crispy duck. The meat selections with the entrees were great, but the side parings were just okay. Imo. Also I wish they had more dessert options. We also the lamp lollipops and pimento cheese and collard dip. Both were good.

    We had an incredible meal with some of the best service I have ever experienced at a restaurant. Our server was knowledgeable, friendly, personable, and made incredible recommendations without even being asked. Our evening transitioned from course to course seamlessly and we had an amazing experience overall. One of the better times I’ve ever had dining out at a restaurant!

    We really enjoyed our first visit to the stables. The cocktails were creative and delicious. The food was outstanding. My only complaint was the limited options on the dessert menu. That said, the butternut squash cheesecake I settled on was really delicious!
