Tastebuds offers a versatile menu with opportunity to experience new items on a continuing basis. The location is on a quaint neighborhood street, and you may miss it. It is located between several restaurants on the same strip of stores. You will never be disappointed...More

My husband and I dined at Tastebuds during an overnight in Richmond. Excellent food and service. The price fixed dinner is a real bargain. We added dessert and coffee and still came away with about a $30 pp bill (we don't drink, so there was...More

Tucked on McArthur Ave is a true gem in a city with too many mediocre restaurants...Tastebuds "gets it"" from the FABULOUS FOOD to their EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE! Moderately priced, lovely wine list...AND AND OWNER WHO KNOWS FLAVORS! You won't be disappointed!

We had a very nice experience at Tastebuds. We stopped by on a Friday night for dinner before going to a show in Richmond. We arrived right when they opened at 5, to ensure we didn't have to wait and we didn't. Looks like any...More

Yum! Tastebuds American Bistro has a strange name but outstanding food! My husband and I ate here with another couple before Christmas. The neighborhood is one that looked like a residential area until you see the line of restaurants and shops. The restaurant is small...More
