Wow. This was one of the worst dining experiences I have ever had to endure. Thankfully the company made up for the mean customer service, weeeiiiirrrddd food, and horrible drinks. If you enjoy being assaulted by hipster losers, then this is the place for you. Also, the BMW emblem was pried off of our car while we were at dinner. This is a dangerous neighborhood with bad restaurants. Go anywhere else but Saison
The saison burger is my absolute favorite! And the oxtail sopes are a savory treat that will surprise you!
Excellent meal with inventive beverages. Highly recommend
Great little restaurant with an eclectic menu.
Food and drinks were delicious.
We'll definitely be back
The Sunday fried chicken was amazing and the summer salad, an exquisite work of art.
No flexibility on substitutions so those with food restrictions may have limited options.
Our friends have always raved about Saison but for some reason hadn't made it there yet. Now that we've been it will definitely be on the regular rotation of go-to restaurants. Food was great, beer and cocktail selection was awesome. Thanks to everyone at Saison for a great meal!!
Only complaint was too noisy (noise level on survey was not appropriate). Otherwise, wonderful experience all around.
It was a good restaurant and we enjoyed ourselves.
The food was good and the server was very nice. However, I asked for a martini and was presented a cocktail with a saline solution. I came to find out after I ordered my drink that the restaurant does not even have olives. I really wish the server just said they don't have olives from the beginning. I would have just ordered something else, but instead I just drank some salty expensive gin.
when we are in Richmond we always try and have a bite at this wonderful restaurant, with changing menu items and local ingredients. Delicious!
Great vegan options!
Fun cocktails and great for date night.
Although the only reservation available was at 5:00 PM, we were the only people in Saison til very close to 6:00 PM. Nevertheless, we had some great cocktails and good conversation...which is at a premium once it gets going on a Friday night...it gets loud!! (but not in a bad way...more of a "this place is hoppin'" sort of way")
Service was very good. Menu was great. Food was fantastic. The lamb chops were really outstanding. Most of the meals I have had here are very, very, good.
Big plus: we went around the corner to Saison market after dinner and had good drinks to continue the conversation...that is a nice option, especially in that part of town.
This restaurant is trying way too hard to be cool, when it should be trying to provide good service to diners.
The atmosphere is standard RVA generic hipster with upscale prices on food and cocktails. The menu for both is interesting, but the service is just awful.
My wife and I waited 20 minutes past our scheduled reservation time and, once seated, waited another 10 minutes to get our drinks. Throughout our meal, we were ignored and had to flag down servers for water refills (we gave up on cocktails after the first round) and eventually just begged for the check so we could get the heck out of there.
It's too bad, because the food and the cocktails were quite tasty. If this place had the same level of quality for customer service and experience, they might have a real gem on their hands. Until then, though, avoid this place.
Excellent, well prepared meals!!
We had an amazing dinner, but we did not care for waiting 30 minutes to get a drink and two other tables that were seated after us got service first.
Great food, better service. Drink selection was incredible; beer, wine, cocktails... unbelievable
Very very loud but cute place and great service. Difficult to find parking.
Great little restaurant and the food was very unique. I liked the options of special drinks and the atmosphere was very local.
Very loud, but we got used to it. The food was very good and so were the cocktails.
The cocktail menu is full of variety and great drinks, the servers are friendly and attentive, and the food is delicious. I can’t recommend the lamb tartare enough, it is one of the best things I’ve eaten in Richmond.
Overall, a very good experience.
Favorite restaurant in all of Richmond, hands down.
All the men got burgers and pronounced them to be best burger in town. Server helpful and attentive, good beverage choices, and the ladies enjoyed the seafood. Prices fair enough husband didn't complain
One of my favorite restaurants in town. The food is always incredible and the drink menu alone is a reason to visit. Friendly, excellent service
Everything was perfectly thought out and perfectly executed. That’s super rare but the servers were so great, sweet, and helpful on top of it. Well definitely be back!
Birthday. Awesome. Delicious.
Only issue we had was initially being placed at a table next to door and inch from other table. It was uncomfortable and awkward. That spot should only seat 2 max and never 4. We asked to move and all was fine after that.
The service was excellent and the food was really yummy! It was an interesting menu, and we had fun ordering. I loved the cheese beignets! I could have eaten 3 order of those~
First time visiting Saison. Everything was delicious! Will be back soon.
Fantastic! I recommend the hanger steak. A little noisy though. I’m going back.
I made a reservation at Saison to celebrate my friends' recent engagement to each other. I mentioned this to the host when I made the reservation, and when we arrived the menus all had "Congratulations (blank) and (blank)!" It was a thoughtful addition. The food and the service were both great. It was a memorable night and everyone had good time.
As usual, we experienced terrific service, delicious beverages program and food, and a great overall vibe. Richmond offers a number of fantastic restaurants and Saison continues to deliver a top-tier experience.
Tried 3 different wines. All were bad. Other tables were sending back also. Please learn how to store an open bottle of wine. Food was good. Service was good. Space was really tight. Really loud
The best mussels ever, with sausage and chili. Amazing.
Amazing food but cold and uninviting wait staff. Thankfully the food is so good you seem to forget about the staff.
Love this place! Great food, great service and great ambiance. Oh and forgot to mention-great cocktails.
Excellent restaurant - very imaginative menu, greatly prepared food, nice size portions, fantastic desserts - good cocktails - a bit noisy
One of the best meals we've had! Ever! Great flavors with some creative twists, and everything was cooked perfectly!
