Buckheads - Richmond
Great steaksTook a large group for a business entertainment dinner. Not one complaint about the food. Appetizers were a little light, but everything else was plentiful. This was my second trip to this restaurant, and both were for business entertainment.
Fantastic experience. Will return.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMHave visited Buckheads onHave visited Buckheads on my visits to Richmond since 2006. The experience is always a pleasure. Quality of the meat is superb. Preparation is always right on. Salads and sides are of a quality to complement the main course. And, the service is attentive and knowledgeable. Best steak in Richmond (and that is saying much as Richmond has several excellent steak restaurants).6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for Meat LoversI took my husband here, as he loves a great steak. I am not a meat eater, but I did enjoy the grilled salmon very much. The salads, sides, calamari app were all excellent. Expensive, but ok for special occasions.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DinnerFirst time at Buckhead's, although it's been recommended by my wife for many years (I'm a slow learner). So, I took her there for our wedding anniversary dinner and am happy to say that it was excellent. Good service, lovely and quiet surroundings, outstanding food. We will be back!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had an excellent meal atWe had an excellent meal at Buckheads. It subscribes to the formula made popular by Morton's, Ruth's Chris, etc. except that the entree price includes salad, potato and vegetables. This aside, it offers a simple, steak-dominated menu, featuring quality and no apology for charging the appropriate price for that level of quality (the prices are not low, but they are fair).
We had excellent service provided by a real, live over 23 years of age server. He was attentive, but not intrusive and had no visible tatoos or piercing.
We would recommend this restaurant to our friends and will be back.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMthe food is always soooo goodthe food is always soooo good at Buckheads! great service!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat experienceFood was delicious, we all enjoyed it. Thanks to the chef for customizing, so to speak, my tuna meal...YUMMY. Great wine and good service. Not much more you can ask for really.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOur family was celebratingOur family was celebrating Mother's Day as well as a college graduation and we all had a lovely experience. The food was great and the wait staff was knowlegeable and curteous. We are looking forward to another visit.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMade a late (3:30)reservationMade a late (3:30)reservation for dinner at 5:00 on Mothers Day (also my wife's birthday). We were warmly greeted and very well served. Food was excellent as were the drinks and Wine. Highly recommend.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLovelyWe had a wonderful Brunch and hope to make this our Mothers Day Tradition.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic!I would highly recommend this restaurant. As out of towers, we were pleasantly surprised and pleased with the wonderful food, wine choices and terrific service! Don't let the strip shopping center deter you. It is definitely worth the trip! Our waiter, Pedro, was very attentive the entire time.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDining ExperienceThe food, service, and ambience were all above the norm. My criticism is that my tablecloth was not properly cleared from the previous guest. The blackened pea or whatever it was was, was not cleared before we arrived even though the waiter should have noticed it. The waiter was very friendly and did an excellent job of explaining the menu, specials, etc. He was very good. I'm still not sure about children's place in a formal dinner setting.. They are fidgety and need to move about - a little distraction.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply ExceptionalHosted two friends who have dined at some of the finest restaurants across the U.S. and Europe. Buckheads impressed them greatly with the outstanding wine selection, excellent food, and perfect ambience. The most difficult aspect of the evening was selecting from the large wine list. Our steaks were cooked perfectly and all portions were ample. And price was reasonable for the quality. My guests were still raving about the overall experience days later. This was a great choice.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBoth wines we ordered wereBoth wines we ordered were out of stock. Substitutions made and ordered. One not to our liking, a $70 mistake.
Salmon good and nicely displayed by itself on a large plate. Small side plate hardly held the generous potato and the green beans literally wedged on beside and under the potato. Why serve this way?
Meat, served medium rare, was slightly over cooked.
Portabella appetizer was awesome as was the cheesecake and key lime pie.
Waiter was polite and efficient but had a air of indifference noticed by several at our table.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service. Excellent foodGreat service. Excellent food choices whether you like beef or seafood. Really enjoyed the wine list.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a 10 out of 10. NotIt was a 10 out of 10. Not a single item that wasn't outstanding. I started with the Lobster bisque that was as good as I have had anywhere. That was followed by a very good caesar salad. Then came the beef. I had a strip steak that was perfectly prepared along with steak fries that were crispy and flavorful along with green beans and carrots that were excellent. My wife had a fresh salad, followed by her main dish, the crab imperial. Buckheads may be known for amazing steaks, but this seafood dish was fabulous. All too often, something disappoints us along the way, but in this case, every single item was great. The service was timely and relaxed and our waiter was entertaining and informative. The best dining experience in Richmond so far4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMRichmond's BestBuckhead's has been my favorite restaurant in Richmond for years. The food is always stellar, and the staff is always attentive and pleasant. I honestly can't complain about any aspect of the restaurant. Go... You won't be disappointed.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMStrange Location GREAT Food!This was our second visit to Buckheads and, like before, it was outstanding. The two specials, halibut and medalians were fantastic and the filet was cooked to perfection. Buckheads is located in a very unassuming strip mall, but do not let the location fool you.... This is a great restaurant. The only low point in our meal was our table location. For some reason, we were placed in the middle of the walkway through the restaurant even though we had reservations and there seemed to be several open tables. That little nugget aside, the food was great and we will definitely plan to return as often as possible.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMTop restaurant in Richmond!!Buckhead's was fantastic!!

It is an attractive, classy place with background music that sets the scene but does not keep you from having conversation at your table. The food was excellent, steaks perfectly cooked as ordered. They knew we were going to the symphony and accommodated our schedule without making us feel rushed. We recommend Buckhead's without hesitation and we will be back.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
