Need more servers and the food took to long to come out but I understand that because it was a great dish that I purchased me and my girlfriend enjoyed ourselves
Great service and food. Was worth the value and a great way to spend Christmas.
Christmas Brunch was a well-organized and delightfully presented meal. Breakfast items included apple-wood smoked bacon, blueberry infused sausage, grits, oatmeal, meal, scrambled eggs and more. Lunch fare was even more special with split, crab legs, prime rib, “impossible” meatloaf, several varieties of fish, and more. I could not mention the abundant desserts, because I was too full to enjoy! However, I will point out that they had home-made peppermint ice cream. Beverage choices included excellent coffee, juices and unlimited mimosas.
Stephanie was outstanding as our server; very attentive, thoughtful and prompt.
We had never previously dined at Trevi, but will definitely include this as a future choice for high-quality dining in Richmond.
MINOR drawback was that some seating (including ours) was in the atrium section of the building and this tended to be a bit on the cooler side.
We will DEFINITELY return, especially for these types of special events.
First of all, let me state that Trevi's Grill is a hotel restaurant. The ambiance is what you would expect in a hotel: nonexistant. (Yes, we have dined in hotel restaurants that had excellent ambiance. They were an unexpected pleasure.) For a hotel restaurant, it's pretty good.
My wife and I had Thanksgiving supper at Trevi's. They were still cleaning up from the Thanksgiving luncheon, so the restaurant was a bit disorganized. However, our server, Pete, was very helpful and friendly. (Pete had been working for about nine hours that day, so we were very impressed with him.)
We both started with wine — my wife with the "Whispering Angel" rose and I with the "Kris" pinot grigio. My wife liked the rose very much. The pinot grigio was, well, wine. It really had no character, which is unusual for an Italian wine. Two stars for the combination.
Our meals started with a small Caesar salad. This was very disappointing: a Caesar salad should have crisp lettuce and, preferably, have the lettuce lightly coated with dressing before being served. The lettuce was limp and came with the dressing in a side dish. Zero stars for the salad course. (We declined to complain, figuring that ALL the lettuce was probably in the same shape.)
For our main course, my wife chose the crab cakes and I chose the blackened salmon. We both pronounced our entrees as excellent. The salmon was flaky and moist, and came with a delicious serving of rice. Five stars for the entrees!
For dessert, we decided to share one cheesecake. Pete brought us coffee and "cream," which turned out to be milk. This DID elicit a complaint from my wife, and Pete graciously brought her a fresh coffee and a pitcher with real cream (or, at least, half and half). The cheesecake was delicious and made the perfect ending for the meal. The coffee was very good also and, I believe, Pete had brewed a fresh pot just for us.
So, for a good meal, Trevi's works well. Just avoid the Caesar salad and the Kris pinot grigio.
I miss the Thanksgiving spread in the ballroom that the Omni had a few years back. Too much walking back and forth, negotiating around tables of diners. The food wasn't quite the same either.
Had to wait for a long time to be served although restaurant was almost empty. 16 pages of cocktails and drinks but two pages of food. Food priced reasonably but a glass of non premium Pinot Noir was $16. Noisy and cold, not a great experience.
