Everything was wonderful! The food and service were top notch. We shared the Oysters Rockefeller appetizer and I had the Scallops while she had the Swordfish. Both were perfect! We also shared the Key Lime Pie for dessert and it was also delicious. The staff were absolutely the best I've ever experienced. We will be coming back in the future.
I took my son out for his 19th birthday. Food was excellent and our server, Patrice, was the best.
Bookbinders is our favorite restaurant in Richmond.
AS ALWAYS A TRULY FINE DINING EXPERIENCE.....PERFECT SERVICE MATCH WITH OUTSTANDING FOOD.
Great Experience for my 21st birthday, staff was very professional and friendly. Owner even got me a drink on the house for my birthday ! Definitely will be returning for date night.
Lobster was large and delicious, lobster macaroni was even better. But the tenderloin was just okay and the crab cake had too much filling and too little crab. Turtle soup was interesting, looks and tastes a little like gravy. So, the food overall was good but at $150 overpriced for that quality.
Here's the biggest surprise / disappointment. Bookbinders knew when the reservation was made that it was a birthday occasion for my wife. The hostess and waiter acknowledged it, yet nothing was offered to her, not even a cupcake with a candle or a cookie!! Really!? She got cake at Longhorn, desert at Hondo's, a rose at Yen Ching, and at Bonefish champagne and chocolate. C'mon, Bookbinders!
Laurie, our server, was fantastic. Made us feel like valued guests. Dinner was superb, save an undercooked Filet, but Laurie quickly remedied. Salmon stuffed with crab meat was on point. Dessert, the bread putting w vanilla gelato, was tasty and was the perfect ending to a nice evening.
This was one of the best meals I've had in a while. It is expensive and the restaurant is too dark. I couldn't read the menu or see my food well. But the service was great and the food, from the warm bread with butter, to the salad and the Bookbinder's surf and turf was memorable. I will definitely go back when next in Richmond.
Fantastic experience. I've already promoted it several times to people I have seen since eating dinner there Wednesday night! I look forward to going back.
This is one of my favorite place to eat. The food is always excellent. Josh waited on us and made the night perfect with some spot on recommendations. The Cajun Seared Tuna is a must have.
Always get a great meal here - it's our place to go for anniversary and birthday dinners. Food and service were excellent. The only thing that was a slight annoyance was that some of the other patrons were wearing outfits more suitable for a fast food joint (i.e., gray t-shirt, old jeans) than for a fine dining establishment. It's great that they have plenty of free parking right across the street.
Great service from server Amanda! We had a private room because of the size of our party. Great food
Everything was positive about our experience except for our waiter. He was slow and forgetful about simple things such as bringing steak knives for steaks and butter for the bread.
They booked too many tables. We were at a not real table in the bar and the service was not good because they got really far behind. For that price point I would expect more.
We were there for New Year's Eve. They were really busy. I have been here numerous times and enjoyed it; however, this time was not good. Service was slow. I had put notes on my reservation about dietary restrictions, they were not met. Food was mediocre.
Bookbinder’s is always exceptional. The scallops were exquisite and Kona was as awesome as ever.
Very busy, but staff handled it well. Our 7th New Year’s at Bookbinder’s. Every time has been spot-on.
We have dined numerous times at Bookbinders with wonderful food and excellent service. However, this experience was terrible. The waiter lost our dessert order, did not want to separate the bill and the manager essentially tried to hustle us out of the restaurant, so he could make the table available for some one else. Waiter claimed after asking the manager about the bill that he did not understand our request. This was on New year's Eve and I understand that can be a very busy time, but would hope that a restaurant of this caliber could plan accordingly.
For a New Year’s Eve fixed price menu it was actually reasonable and the food was delicious with excellent service.
Annual New Year’s Eve tradition.
Bookbinder's has become our favorite restaurant when we want a special meal. The decor and ambiance are always impressive, the food always excellent and the service unmatched. It's expensive, but we expect to pay for the excellence we can count on.
Best old fashioned we’ve had in a very long time. Creamed corn was amazing and steak was perfect in temperature. Sat in the Presidential room which was a little low on ambiance; the rest of the restaurant looked much more interesting.
we always choose bookbinder’s for any family celebration. we love the staff, area, and food. the parking is great especially being downtown. we loved it and will be returning!!
What an amazing experience. My menu was personalized with a birthday message that transferred over from my reservation details. The server was outstanding and so thoughtful. She was there for everything and more, the perfect balance of attentive and spaciously professional. The food was absolutely phenomenal. Everything cooked perfectly and timed so well across the evening. 5 out of 5, hands down.
We were looking to stop in Richmond on our way down from NY to Florida.My husband found this lovely restaurant in a converted warehouse. Lots of atmosphere, delicious food and good service. Definitely a must try!
The food wasn’t exceptional for the price. It was good but I was expecting it to be exceptional for the price
Great Food and Outstanding Service...
Great steaks and great service!!! Very extensive wine list. Highly recommend for any occasion.
Had Christmas dinner there. I would of liked the crab cake appetizer to be a little bit more crispy on the outside. Filet mignon was perfectly cooked. Had key lime pie for dessert. It was one of the best deserts I've had and I don't even like key lime pie.
The quality of the food and service well warrants the price (Christmas dinner menu $75 per person).
Came here fir the first time for a special Christmas dinner. We had heard good things, and the excellent menu with lots of choices for special dietary needs (GF in our case) sealed the deal.
We couldn’t have chosen a better place! The food was AMAZING and so was the service. The ambiance was so nice — high ceilings, exposed brick walls, and nice Christmas decorations.
We definitely recommend Bookbinder’s fir any special meal. Check it out!!
Very good! Enjoyed it very much. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
The food was AMAZING! The services was very at tentative.
Excellent Christmas Day dinner. Service and food was great we love Bookbinder’s
Wonderful Christmas dinner. Excellent fixed price dinner selections; excellent service
Food and Service were both great! Owner stopped by also to meet us and thank us fir our patronage. Will put this restaurant on my list as a great place for dinner!
We had a wonderful Christmas meal. The service was very attentive and the food was outstanding. This is going on my list for special occasion restaurants.
We have been coming to Bookbinders every Christmas Eve for many years. It is our family tradition. we are always delighted with everything!!
Love going on Christmas Eve every year but was disappointed we had a limited menu this year. The food was great. Maybe a choice of 4 side dishes instead of 2. Bring back the lobster Mac and cheese!
