  • Easy elevator ride up to the 18th floor, labelled OD for Observation Deck. Floor to ceiling windows, and almost all of them were perfectly clean, which afforded wonderful views on this clear day. You ...  more »
  • This is a great treat while you are in town. The view is a spectacular 360-degree vista of the whole city and outlying areas. You can even bring your lunch up and eat at one of the tables.  more »
  • I'm so glad we did this. It's completely free and just a short elevator ride up to the top of city hall. It's got especially great views of Capitol Park.  more »

  • This is what makes Richmond so wonderful! This is a well maintained, free, and open space with an amazing view. The observation deck wraps the entire building and you can easily enjoy your lunch here!
  • The cafĂ© located in here has amazing food but WHEN IS IT EVER SANITARY TO WRAP FOOD IN MY RECEIPT!! Gross!! My team came here specifically to check out the observation deck. The observation deck could be so much more. The view is amazing if you can see through the filthy glass. Personally since this is City Hall you would think that they would have food upstairs, tvs, and the history of Virginia. Unfortunately it's just a large hot floor with a few picnic tables. Make it at least a lounge. Heck just call me I would design something to bring the traffic to downtown. The food 3.5 stars. The observation deck 2.5.
