Seafood | Richmond, Richmond

The food was excellent. There were 4 of us and we ordered: raw oysters, house salad, beet salad, whole fish of the day, scallops, and the fish stew. All were delicious and perfectly prepared; however, the man who had the stew said that it was not as hearty as he would have liked and had few oysters in it. The beet salad was one of the best I’ve ever had and the server went the kitchen to find out for me the makeup of the dressing. He also recommended a nice wine and let me taste it before ordering. However, much of the service could have been improved: the oysters were ordered very early but did not arrive until after 3 of us had almost finished our salads. The two women decided to share the beet salad and the whole fish - the waiter said that he could help with splitting the fish at the table, but it was delivered by another waiter who made no attempt, so we did it ourselves. We had to serve it onto bread plates, as empty dinner plates were not provided, and I had to ask for a spoon with which to divide the rice. It was cumbersome and a bit messy. We arrived at 5:15 and told the waiter upon being seated that we had theater reservations and and needed to leave by 6:40. The service was such that we did not have time for either coffee or dessert, which were not offered. There was a significant “humming” noise in the restaurant, possibly from the kitchen ventilation - conversation would be difficult for someone hard of hearing. In all, we did enjoy our meal, will go back and will recommend Rappahannock to friends. A few tweaks in the service area would improve the overall experience to 5-stars. More

Reservation was under my name Patti Howle and when our friends ( 2 other couples ) arrived before us they seated them and when we arrived they seated us in the opposite dinning area Both of us hadn’t seen each other And we were sitting at 2 different tables .. in 2 different dinning areas.. The only way we found each other was by tx asking where each other was??? Kind of a mix up... ?? Mayb 2 parties w the same last name ??? but we all had a good time regardless.. More

I take my team out for lunch every year to celebrate the holidays and recognize them for a job well done. I had never been to West Coast Provisions before, even though I live in the neighborhood. Upon arrival, I was greeted immediately and seated promptly. The wait staff was professional and provided very good service. We didn't have to wait long; our lunches were served very quickly. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Thank you for providing me and my team with such a nice experience. More

Discover Virginia

Virginia is known for more than just delicious southern cooking; they have their own style! If you are a ham lover, look out for Virginia ham — also known as Smithfield ham. It is only legal to produce in one place in the world, Smithfield, Virginia. Virginian cuisine also includes a variety of BBQ that range from all vinegar to a vinegar-based sweetness. A hearty Brunswick stew is another mainstay of Virginia. Originally using an Appalachian flying squirrel, it now uses a variety of meats braised in this vegetable stew. Traditional Virginian apple cider and apple butter, made from Wineapples, is a real treat. Another delicacy is any seafood that is cooked with Old Bay, originally formulated with spices from a specific region of the state, the Chesapeake Bay.
