Food and cocktails were very good, but the service was slow and inattentive. A solid meal, but you can do better in Richmond at this price point.
Small plates are delici
Great food. Great drinks. Great service. Only critique was that the tortillas for the fish tacos were subpar, but I’m from Texas, with very high standards for such things. Other than that everything was on point.
Everything about our meal was wonderful!
Love this place. I visit any time I'm in Richmond.
23rd wedding anniversary
Probably the best service I have ever received-- I was blown away by their hospitality.
The food was fantastic and the ambiance was perfect.
The small plates and entrees were amazing. Dessert not so much. I recommend sticking to the dinner and do not ruin the flavor with the dessert.
I can do without the loud music. Otherwise the Halibut was excellent
This was our first time out to eat in about a year, thanks to the pandemic. We couldn't have asked for a better reintroduction to dining out- Saison was impeccably clean, the servers were so friendly and warm, and it was hard to decide what to choose to eat because everything sounded so good! We ended up going a little overboard and ordering a ton of food, and each dish was so delicious. The highlight of my night was the beef tartare with fried pickles- I am a big fan of beef tartare and order it whenever I see it on a menu, and I'm not even exaggerating when I say this one was the best one I have ever had and the one I will judge all future beef tartare against. My husband's favorite dish of the night was the roast chicken with panisse- perfectly cooked, crispy skin, and a well balanced dish through and through. Thank you guys for such a lovely night, we will be sure to return when we are in Richmond again.
Excellent service. Spectacular, Delicious food - our party chose a variety of menu items - ALL were Wonderful. Great drink selection.
Opted to eat outdoors due to beautiful weather and COVID times.
Great outdoor dining experience. All safety protocols were observed. And the food and drinks were delicious.
We have had several meals at Saison and they have always been fantastic, great food and service. This visit was disappointing as the server was completely uninterested in our dining experience. She was either overwhelmed or just not good at her job. She would randomly disappear for large chunks of time. We had also placed a to go order which we never received after waiting around 30 minutes after we were finished with our meal. She blamed the kitchen. Our food was as amazing as ever so we will most likely try again. I hope this review leads the management to tighten up the service experience.
Always the best cocktails in town and nice to have outdoor seating.
All around great dining experience!! Small neighborhood feel with creative and innovative dishes.
Unfortunately, the dining room is closing for an undetermined time. I love the food, cocktails, ambience, etc. and will miss this gem until management feels safe to reopen.
Creative menu, friendly staff, intimate environment, great experience!
For a slow night, the entrees took a very long time to arrive at our table. In addition, both Petit Filet's were served cold.
Speaking of cold, it was uncomfortably cool in the restaurant.
Based on previous visits, this was not a good experience.
100 best restaurant in Richmond. Quiet, nice lighting, great staff, great food, great drinks. Always bring my guest who are visiting here.
Great food as always
Small portions for a very high price. Food was fine but not good enough to ever return.
Just had cocktails and an appetizer. Chicken wings were cooked perfectly. Nice and crispy. We tried 3 different cocktails. All were excellent. Like the coziness of the decor and look forward to another visit.
I booked for the main restaurant but when I got there was sat in the back corner of the market where staff kept going in and out of a storage closet a few feet from my table. They were out of fried chicken(one reason we came on Sunday) , the food took a very long time, they ask you wear a mask every time a server is at your table which results in up and down constantly. Staff has never been warm and friendly on any visit . This may be my last . Lots of other great places in Richmond that are much more enjoyable .
Saison is one of my favorite spots in town. Great food, amazing service and a stunning ambience. Both the server and bartender treated us like queens. Love this place!
Absolutely awesome food with unique flavorings. Waitress was fabulous I will go back there in a heartbeat.
Great food and a very cozy environment. The chicken was one of the best dishes that I have had all year.
The seafood run down, seafood in a coconut broth, was delicious, as was the red sparking wine and both desserts. We ate outside and the street is noisy and not particularly interesting, which is not the restaurant's fault. Definitely put this at the top of our list.
I continue to love this place! People talk a lot about the cocktails which are fantastic but I find the food equally fantastic. Very surprised they don’t get more pressed for their food.
Ask for recommendations for anything! The servers and bartenders have great advice!
The menu is limited. The salad desert and drinks were good, but the Sunday fried chicken special was overwhelmingly salty. Hopefully, that was inadvertent. We will not be back.
Arrived early but had no problems with bringing my reservation forward. Excellent service, tried the
We hadn’t dined here in quite a while, and the food/drinks are better than ever. The homemade ingredients mix up a for a great cocktail, and the food was excellent. Smart and friendly staff are practicing safe procedures, much appreciated.
Friendly staff, great food, dog friendly patio!
It was great! It’s nice to go out to dinner again. My dates chicken entree was taster than my seafood entree(might have been better with the bread but I can’t do gluten) Both were delicious but if I had order again I would order the chicken. The Cocktails were outstanding.
Food was outstanding especially the Peruvian chicken, wedge salad and dessert. Staff was very friendly, attentive and helpful.
Fantastic food, drinks and service. Eclectic menu with accessible favorites. The cocktail menu and bartender reflect deep skill and the French fries...damn. I have never eaten a French fry and thought “Now that’s a good fry!” Until here.
Great meal. Beet salad was insane and drinks were also very good / very interesting.
Took great precautions for social distancing. Great experience.
