What a gem of a find...excellent meal and beautifully presented. Loved the setting and appreciate the owner coming to our table. Will be back soon.
Wonderful meal, service occasionally slow, but busy night and our server kept handling new patrons checking into reservations.
Bought a boat
Staff not organized, didn’t sit until 20 minutes after reservation, waiter a bit distracted, food took a long time
Great food, but the valentine's day prices made it a very poor value. Go on the other 364 days of the year!
Dined on Valentine's Day with the special menu. Ordered off of special menu for the occasion. Ordered a variety of foods and everyone was happy with their meals. I had a steak, which was okay - not the best that I have had, but I give them some benefit of the doubt given the evening and the crowd in the restaurant. Will try them again on a non-"holiday" occasion as I hear this is a fantastic place to dine.
Valentine's dinner. Excellent food.
Relaxed environment, friendly staff and a very nice meal. Was a great way to enjoy a rainy Saturday evening in Richmond.
Chef Virginia is always be amazing. Her passion and unique style of flavors come out in every meal she puts out. Highly recommend to anyone looking a night out on the town.
Food is okay, but not great and not seasonal. Would be better if menu were adjusted for seasons so food tasted fresh and innovative.
Had not been in years. Had an early reservation and it was almost empty when we arrived but quickly filled up. Never too noisy. Both had Rockfish and was delicious!
Our favorite place in all of Richmond!!! Great food and we always feel at home here.
This was our second experience @ Rowland. We enjoy trying new places, but I didn’t want to take a chance on our seventh anniversary. Rowland did not disappoint. We arrived early and were sat immediately. Our server was prompt with the drink order as well as telling us the daily specials. We started with the calamari. It was fresh and served in a plate of fresh salad greens and a dressing. Delicious. I had the potato leek soup and the shrimp and grits. The soup was a healthy portion and smooth. Great on s cold rainy night. The shrimp and grits did not disappoint either. They were a little spicy. Right up my alley. My wife had the beef tenderloin. It was cooked perfectly and served with a potato croquet and asparagus. She raved. All in all. Another outstanding experience. My only negative (and it’s not a biggie) would have been the fusion music playing in the background. The style of Rowland deserves a Miles Davis playlist. Or some light jazz.
Everything about our evening was great! Food, service, atmosphere. There were a lot of good choices on the menu: light and not so light. Rockfish was great! We will certainly be back soon!
Quiet enough to hear each other, but loud enough so you aren't part of the conversation next to you. And the food was AMAZING!
It had been several years since I had been to Rowland for dinner and it hasn’t lost a step. Food was delicious. Service was great. We had the duck and the mahi mahi and both were fantastic. Definitely will make return visits to Rowland.
Always consistently good, Great diverse selection and priced appropriately.
Not to mention it in a good location. Go you'll like it mikey
Our out of town "foodie" guest was blown away by Rowland's Fish special of the day. Great food, festive atmosphere....a true Richmond Gem!
Lamb sliders and fish tacos
We're delicious. Been filet cooked perfectly nicely split for 2
An amazing venue and neighborhood favorite. Chef Bruce just keeps the menu fresh and changed up so one can come back over and over and be very pleasantly surprised. Love this place!
Rowland was an awesome example of all that is great about Richmond dining. We celebrated my wife's Birthday in grand style while our son got to show his wife a new place that we had never been to. It was a perfect night!!!
Great family meal with 3 generations. had a nice quiet spot so all the grandparents could hear and participate in the conversation. Food was excellent with good choices for all. Deserts were very good. Especially the Bananas Foster.
The chef makes delicious meals that are not ordinary yet perfect combination for a delicious meal...
The food, service and everything else was amazing. Such a nice spot in the middle of a housing area. Street parking was fairly easy and free (just find the spot). Felt like a safe area. The Joe Chop was GREAT!!
Food was mediocre-to-good which wasn't great considering the price involved. The drinks were lackluster. The service was decent. The ambiance was nice...though the place could use a refresh in art & decor. Given the great number of other options in Richmond I probably wouldn't go back.
Roland never disappoints… One of the best kept secrets and Richmond!
Small local restaurant. Service was not good though waiter was very friendly and helpful. We will try it again.
Very good food. Very nice place. The pork chop is great. The chicken empanada spring rolls were good and unique
Outstanding food and service. Richmond resturant week. Worth the trip from Varina and for a great cause! Will return soon!
Rowland did an outstanding job with this year's fall restaurant week. I thoroughly enjoyed all three courses and will be going back again. Ended up arriving 15 minutes early. The staff was very accommodating and sitter nice.
