Always a pleasure going to the stables. Who doesn’t like the lamb lollipops? And the drinks are creative and great.

This was our first time at The Stables. We were there for a private family memorial of our parents who had just died the week before, so we wanted a place that had an intimate feel and understanding service. The Stables was absolutely perfect. The ambiance was intimate, yet busy enough so that our laughing and crying were not disruptive to other tables (I hope!). The wait staff could not have been better! They were there when we needed them, but also gave us space. The food was delicious and interesting. The drinks came quickly from the bar. The bartender even made up a drink for my sister in law when she just asked for something “fruity”.
We had a fantastic experience! I would highly recommend this restaurant for any special occasion or date night.

The lamb chop special was pathetic. To charge the price and have absolutely no meat after the meal. Shameful. How disappointed we were. We always have had excellent food and service. So disappointed

The wait staff was very kind and courteous.
Our cocktails and salad course was great.
The meals however came out in shifts which had us waiting with plates getting cold before all were served. Made the main course lackluster.

We always enjoy the Stables - the staff is amazing - friendly and knowledgeable - clearly a strong team of folks in the kitchen and out front that make the experience wonderfully delicious all the way around. They remember how we like our martinis, and Southern Scallops were perfect - hard to get better collard greens.

We love the gluten free, vegetarian and healthy options for me and lamb lollipops and fish for my husband. The flourless chocolate cake was the best we have ever had! Small plates and large plates, unusual menu that is just our style, like buffalo cauliflower wings. Also chef is wonderful and came to our table to help out with our choices for a food allergy. Hand crafted cocktails and great choices for wines by the glass. We will be back soon!

We sat at the bar prior to our reservation. The cocktails are amazing. The space is small, and our table was in between two other tables. It did not feel cramped, just cozy. The mussels were excellent. The ribeye was cooked perfectly. The cioppino had wonderful flavor. The flourless chocolate cake was the perfect ending to the meal. Service was perfect (water glasses were always full). We will return for certain. This is a new favorite for us in downtown Richmond.

Food and cocktails were top notch. Bar area atmosphere fun. Seating space and table size were cramped - if that could be improved we’d rate it a 5.

Out of town friends wanted a special place to take us. I had requested a quiet table and Evan delivered. Our fantastic server suggested we share the lamb chops and they had an ideal char and were cooked to perfection. I always order the cioppino and it was of course outstanding. My guests had it as well and one of them makes it all the time and it got rave reviews. She really liked the andouille which had just the right amount of pop. Desserts and wine were money. A+. Our friends can wait to go with us again. Thank you.

My mussels were undercooked and I told the waitress but she did nothing about it. I recommended this restaurant to many people but was surprised about the lack of attention to detail. It would have been nice if she would have said something about it other than "oh"

Great food as usual but server was cold and kept walking away as we were about to order - literally mouth open to speak and she walked away. This is very unusual from past experiences there. The food is wonderful. The chef is a magician in making the flavors blend together.

Wonderful. My husband ordered the halibut and told me he wished he could eat this every day of his life...it was that good!
I got a cocktail that was so fun and different - spicy and full of Fall flavors. I ordered the cioppino. The seafood was perfectly done - which is difficult in that dish.
We finished off sharing the Rosemary creme brulee. DUDE- INSANE!!! How have I never had this in my life before!?!?!

Staff was very friendly and helpful with recommendations. Food arrival was timely and delicious. We'd definetely go back. The only issues someone may have are with the menu, it was a little hard to understand and the space itself was very tight.
