Diner Reviews
  • "If you like steak, this is a great place to dine. Limited fish choices but food was excellent. The service was great too! It was very pricey if you have wine or drinks."

  • "Few restaurants are worthy of a meal in the $200 range for 2 people. But this one is. I cannot imagine why anyone would go to Morton's or Ruth Chris or any other steak house when Buckhead's is here. This is a special occasion restaurant for us due to pricing, but we love it every time we are able to swing it. The food is never anything but amazing. The Steak Au Poivre is my husband's favorite and the side dishes are always perfectly done. The bar is also very nice - great Cosmopolitans (although at $15 per they should be. that is a little over the top even for fine dining). I would say the only improvement on this spot would be the location. A strip mall is, well, a strip mall. Not too appealing. The food makes up for it!"

  • "We liked the feel of the restaurant. It felt as if my date and I were the only people in the restaurant. Our wait staff was attentive, responsive, and knowledgeable with regards to the wines on hand - of which there are many to choose from. The Surf and Turf we ordered was tasty and wonderfully presented. The steak melted in our mouths. Cooked to perfection and very satisfying. Portion sizes were just right. My date and I were able to enjoy each our conversation as the noise level within the restaurant was practically non-existent. I would recommend Buckhead's for a romantic night on the town."

  • "My wife and I were in Richond for a quick get a way. We did some looking on-line and decided Buckheads looked like a good place to try. We were not disappointed. It was a Wednesday night, so it was not very busy. Our server was excellent, he was very attentive, had a sense of humor and made the meal even more enjoyable. Our steaks were cooked perfectly and desserts were awesome."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Buckheads is the place we go to celebrate special occasions or just spend time with good friends. Food is incredible, service attentive but unobtrusive. It's one the few restaurants that carries my husband's favorite small batch bourbon and the wine list is impressive! Love this restaurant. Worth every penny!"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "From appetizers to rib-eye and halibut entrees, everything at Buckheads was great the other evening. Nice wines to complement everything. Dining in this intimate atmosphere is always a true pleasure."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "We went to Buckheads to celebrate my nephew's graduation from MSG school in Quantico and my birthday. The steak entrees were all cooked to perfection. We asked for a quiet corner and we were seated in a quiet backroom which gave the appearance of having our own personal dining room. The service was excellent and our server non-obstrusive. Desserts for all 3 diners were on the house in honor of our celebration dinner. I would definitely return to this restaurant. This is the place for special occasions."
    Dined on 7/12/2014

  • "Buckhead's always has fantastic food and our most recent visit was no exception. Filet was cooked exactly to order. Drinks better than usual. The waiter didn't rush us yet brought next course when appropriate."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "I was taken to Buckhead's for my birthday dinner. The service was wonderful..never had to ask for anything. The filet was so tender it would just melt in your mouth. My daughter had the crab cakes and she said they were the best she has ever eaten. Wonderful experience and even dessert to go ..on the house for my birthday."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Service and food was outstanding. Best filet mignon ever. Ambience was good, although seating could be a bit more comfortable."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "The service was great however the food as only average at best. A little pricey but if food had been better it would have been worth it.The place is too dark, drab and dated. it really needs a makeover"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "We have been to Buckhead's several times over the years. On our recent visit, the food and service were both exceptional."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "I had the surf and turf, my steak and lobster were both overcooked and tough...and the beef was dry. My wife had the filet, and hers was overcooked and dry as well. The wine was great and so were the mash potatoes...so that is the only thing positive I can say. Service was average at best."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "If you are tired of the chains give Buckheads a try. Great ambience, superb steaks. Only negative at all was that service was a bit slow but not ubearably so. Calamari was excellent, salad was fresh and crisp, New York Strip was thick, juicy and cooked to order. Wife and son were equally pleased with their ribeyes. Remains my favorite steakhouse in Richmond."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "My wife and I have been to Buckhead's twice and have not been disappointed. They serve great steaks and seem to take pride in getting them cooked to the correct temperature every time. Service was excellent, responsive and attentive without being intrusive. Good night. Would and will recommend to friends."
    Dined on 4/27/2014
  • "The last time we visited Buckheads was 20 years ago. The main reason we haven't been there in so long is the price. We were celebrating a special occasion with friends and decided this is where we wanted to go. The food was exquisite and the server was very attentive but not overly so. The only thing that will keep us from returning again in the near future is the lack of "affordable" wines. There were very few to pick from that were less than $50 a bottle. We were able to find a wine that we all liked that was $50 a bottle, but our choices were limited. Overall, though, it was a fine dining experience in every way."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "My wife and I were traveling through Richmond and we always like to stop at local restaurants instead of the chains. Buckheads was definitely a nice surprise for us. Our steaks were awesome and cooked just right. Service, ambiance, wine list was all top of the line. What a great way to start off our vacation. Don't let the neighborhood center location fool you. This place has all the goods."
    Dined on 4/21/2014
  • "Recently, we were looking for a solid local restaurant in the Richmond area to have a relaxing dinner not only on a Friday or Saturday night, but during the week as well and for those special occasions. We re-discovered Buckheads. The service from the time you walk in, to the time you leave is fantastic. We've have dined several times in the last couple of months and each time a different day and time and have had different items on the menu. It's all been terrific. The bar drinks are not watered down and the wine list is solid. The steaks are tender, the vegetables are fresh and the caramelized onions are just plain awesome. The salad is included in the price of the entree. The deserts are a good ending to the meal. "
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "Always a reliable, well prepared meal served with panache. One of our favorites for a special occasion."
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "We went for my wife's birthday and found the experience to be worthy of the restaurant's reputation. We were greeted warmly, our server was knowledgeable, efficient, friendly, and he went out of his way to make sure our needs were met. Everything we ordered exceeded our expectations and it was a rare treat to be in an atmosphere that was quiet and elegant."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "We were celebrating two birthdays and the experience was amazing as usually. We come to Buckheads for special occasions and business visits. The service, food, and atmosphere is always amazing!"
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "After sending my steak back twice and being disregarded, I decided to call it a night. Me and my wife decided to spend our Anniverary Dinner at a different Restaurant in Richmond. Will not dine at Buckhead's again. (Hondo's and Bookbinders are awesome choices)"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "We really had a great time dining in at Buckheads Richmond. The staff was very friendly and our waiter was awesome. He made sure we had everything we needed at all times. The food was out of this world and I am excited to say we will be definitely dining again, most likely very soon."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "A beautiful dining experience including hot expertly prepared food. The dining room was filled with conversation among surrounding tables yet quiet enough to engage in a personal conversation without talking above the other customers. An evening to remember. The service was very professional. The best my wife and I have been subjected to in Richmond."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Love Buckheads and, but last night was not a good experience. The waiter was not personable, overweight, and was unkempt. The special appetizer was seared scallops which I wanted as an entree and the waiter said I could. When my entree arrived there were three scallops rather than the 6 the waiter promised. I asked why and he said he was confused--that he hadn't realized I wanted two appetizers and that he could bring me another one! I told him it was fine. The other service was slow and we had to ask for things such as butter and salt & pepper. The other entrees were delicious--as always, and the other staff members were gracious and helpful. We will go back, but hope our next experience is the same as our past visits."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "My husband and I ate here with some friends we hadn't seen in a while. The wait staff was proficient and courteous and knowledgeable of the menu. The food was amazing, but the potato cake was not so world famous though; it was just a potato cake. The vegetables were extremely fresh and the steaks were definitely worth the money. I absolutely plan to go back."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "our first time here....beats Shula's, Flemings, Ruths Chris, etc. The filet mignon with crab on top special was the perfect combo.....great suggestion from the waiter. Awesome! We will be back soon and have already started telling all our friends!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "The food and waiter were fine. However, it took over two hours, which was too long. The table behind us had a group of young intoxicated individuals whose antics over-shadowed our conversation."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "The food was great and the atmosphere is very relaxing. Our waiter seemed bored (to the point of being annoyed ...while still being polite) and the service was slow (from beginning to end 3+ hours - which was fine for visiting and enjoying the good food); the waiter was polite, but indifferent and absent between delivery of various courses; the only part of the meal that was lacking was the salad which looked and tasted premade and sitting for a while - nothing exciting -- also contained mushrooms which I had told the waiter I was very allergic to at the beginning of our order"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "For a much better experience, head to Fleming's or Ruth's Chris. The wait staff was unfriendly and delayed (took 10 minutes to present us with a menu). The hostess sat us in a weird back room near the kitchen. I felt like it was 1962, if you know what I mean. I would not recommend this place. I was quite disappointed. It's an "old" Richmond gem, and I can understand why."

  • "This restaurant would receive a 10 star rating if you had one. The service level from the hostess to the busboy was fantastic. The wine list is amazing and the food was unbeatable."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "The Food was great!! Our steak you could cut with a butter knife! Our server was terrific, nice, and attentive! We were a little surprised at how expensive the meal was, We had surf and turf and that alone was 148$ However we had a gift card so we weren't totally devastated! LOL However, our bill at final 167$ and we didn't even have a glass of wine was a little sad."

  • "As always the food was excellent and the service was attentive and professional. I have eaten here many times for business but this was for my anniversary. A perfect place for business or pleasure."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "They have great steaks and offer wonderful specials too. The service was good. I had a problem with my steak but the server and manager was very quick to fix the problem. I was celebrating my birthday and I got to pick a dessert on the house."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Buckheads remains our favorite steak house. It is quiet, serenely elegant, offers great food (centered on the steak crowd) and has one of the best wine lists around. And as great as the wine list is, it also allows me to bring my own wine ($25 corkage fee), so I bring some of the best from my wine cellar."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "Thank you to the management, server and host staff for such an amazing, intimate, award worthy evening for my husband and I. You have set the bar high for us, and we are just trying to come up with MORE special occasions to warrant our return! Thank you again!"
