What a little slice of heaven this dining room is?! 😍😍

These past 14+ months have been so incredibly stressful for this industry. Through it all, this team here that has been keeping it all going has responded to every pivot, every surprise turn of events, and has executed with aplomb and grace. A much needed break for many of y’all’s favorite faces here is in order though, so we are going to be taking a summer break from this Monday June 14th through Wednesday June 30th. We hope y’all understand! We can’t wait to welcome y’all back (again) on July 1st.

Our little sister @saisonmarket will continue with current Summer hours of 11am-12pm Wednesday to Sunday with counter food service from 11-10 daily through our vacation. It’s the same menu we offer, just minus the large plates and limited cocktails. Honestly, it’s a lot of fun over there.

We are nearly booked for the weekend already, so please give a call or check our website saisonrva.com for reservations this weekend before break starts.

Thank all of you from the bottom of our hearts for continued support. It has meant the world.

Hey ya’ll,

In these uneasy times, we had a staff member test asymptomatically positive for COVID-19. Saison and Saison Market will be taking a short hiatus to allow our staff to get tested and ensure our ability to safely serve the community for the rest of the holiday season. We will reopen when the coast is clear and will keep you posted. We look forward to welcoming you back with open, socially distant arms.

Stay safe.
