Really wanted to visit since seeing the restaurant come to fruition from No Demo Reno. It’s a lively spot and a very pleasant experience. Our server was appropriately attentive and our food was delicious. Overall, a nice evening.

My wife and I had a lovely brunch at Porch Pour in Midlothian. Started with a mimosa cocktail and we both chose an eggs benedict item for our main course. Food was beautiful to look at and tasted really well orchestrated. The ham benny also had peaches and avocado to accompany the usual items. Cooked to perfection. The staek included spinach as well. The potatoes were perfectly prepared with a crisp outside and a soft inner. Service was well done, polite, non-intrusive and helpful. Tha atmosphere was also enjoyable set in a parlor room of a relocated 1873 Victorian house. Enjoyable on all counts.

Our server Grace was phenomenal. Food was delicious, drinks were great, music was excellent. Only surprise was that it was not busier. We will definitely be back soon.
