“Eclectic cocktails ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

We went for Mother's Day and were presently surprised as first timers. The staff did an excellent job outlining all the custom cocktails. I had never heard of any of them but was fascinated by the diversity. Definitely get one of those drinks. The food was great too kind of a Latin Mexican theme

“One of my least favorite in richmond”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2014 via mobile

I have lived in Richmond for a year and I have been to over 100 restaurants. This is one that I will not go back to. I was looking forward to saison, but I was very disappointed. This is one of my least favorite restaurants. The fried chicken was OK. Would rather hace kfc.The mashed potatoes were bland and somewhat cold. Instant are better. The kale was super salty. My wife's spicy chicken was bland and we did not finish it. The hot sauce was more sweet than hot.The waiter was awkward and the staff in general were flustered even when it was not busy.

“Great all-around experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2014

Wonderful ambiance, service, and food. I had the red drum creole-style off of their new winter menu, and it's truly one of the best meals that I've had in recent memory. It could have come straight from one of the best creole restaurants in New Orleans. The food was also quite affordable given what these meals would cost at comparable restaurants. And the staff - they must be one of the friendliest in Richmond (and there are a lot of friendly restaurants in RVA).

“One of the best in RVA”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

No matter what seasonal menu is available, everything is always fresh, creative, and delicious. The cocktail menu is well done and the beer selection is small, but very high quality.

“A cold night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2014 via mobile

We ate at Saison on the coldest night of the year. We had a reservation for 8 and they put two tables together in front of the door. I had the great misfortune to sit in the doorway. Needless to say I never came out of my heavy coat. As the restaurant is very small go early or in smaller numbers. The food was good and the menus are in old books which made for interesting conversations. All in all a good time was had by everyone
