Everything from start to finish exceeded all expectations! Oysters, escargot, steak, duck, apple cake, chocolate creme brule, and raspberry sorbet. This small intimate French Bistro was superb. Service by a young lady was excellent and the owner was most helpful with wine pairings. A special restaurant for a special occasion. My wife's birthday and she is still talking about Armour...

We happened upon this restaurant using Google and Tripadvisor after finishing our visit at the nearby Virginia Museum of Fine Art. We had a most wonderful, leisurely stay with a fantastic selection of wines and beautifully prepared food. This was the culinary highlight of our trip! The owner, yes, is French and loves to interact regarding wine and food pairings.... More

Amour Wine Bistro has beautiful in décor and location in the heart of Carytown. The ambiance is perfect for a quiet romantic dinner with that special person in your life. The wine pairings with the food were perfectly picked and the service was on point. The sad part of this story unfortunately is the food, which was nowhere near French... More

The food was fabulous, beautifully presented and with wine recommendations, even offering half glasses so you get the opportunity to try more than one. Service was excellent. Will certainly return

Our first visit. They had some specials in tribute to Julia's birthday so our dessert was cherry clafoutis and was a perfect finish to our meal. We had a great bottle of St. Emilion Merlot, small plates of Tartelette Flambeau with bits of bacon, caramelized onion, and fromage blanc, Local mushroom stir fry (shiitake, garlic, Provence herbs, shallots), and entrees...

We enjoyed two courses and wine pairings and then dessert. Our party of four was totally new to French cuisine and dining. Our server was friendly and helpful, and the owner friendly and welcoming as he explained the pairings. The salmon and lamb entrees get rave reviews, also the tomato tart. Much is locally sourced and the setting is intimate... More

This is a small restaurant. I have been several times. Sometimes it's only a couple people there and sometimes I need to sit at the bar, because the restaurant is full. When I came for brunch I had the wild mushroom crepe. It was delicious. I shared the porfiteroles and sorbets with my mom. The profiteroles were were ok. I... More

Quite, pleasant atmosphere. Owner and server were very helpful with meal suggestions. Once we understood the concept of the menu we were hooked. We spent 3 hours of conversation supported by terrific food and excellent wine pairings. We will return. It is a real gem.
