We came here for our anniversary. The customer service is top notch. The staff, manager, and owner were all so great! The food was perfect quality and well portioned in sizes. Best Creme brulee I've had in Richmond!!! We will definitely be coming back!
Excellent in all areas!
This was a celebration of our husband’s April birthdays. From the Happy Birthday special printed menus to the last morsel, everything was perfect. Our server was a true professional.
We enjoyed the food, service, and environment!! Couldn’t decide what to order because it all sounded so good... and it was!
Everything was delicious! And the service was great! Definitely will come back again.
Just OK the last two visits.
Could not have asked for a better experience! My whole party enjoyed everything from the exterior, the meal, the kindness of our waitress, and members of the team occasionally stopping just to share good wishes. The food is AMAZING, our seating was beautifully decorated, and the light music with low lighting gave such a romantic, ambient feel to the space. Such a highlight of Richmond, and I was lucky to discover it! By far one of my best birthdays and I have Bookbinder's to thank for it! Highly recommend, I have already sent many of my friends there in the past few days, and I will be back for my anniversary dinner! Thank you Bookbinder's!
This was our first time and we have decided to make Bookbinders a tradition. We loved it!
Fantastic food and service! Great people!
This was my first time here and it was wonderful! Me and my boyfriend were celebrating his birthday and we had a great time. The staff is extremely courteous and knowledgeable about the menu and drink selections. They even had a special menu printed for us that said “Happy Birthday”. We will most definitely be returning in the future.
Great service. Food amazing. Had the oysters first then stuffed salmon and another salmon special with a side of lobster Mac and cheese. Would definitely go back!
Excellent service and food. Hats off to the chef for that salmon special. I want to come back and sit outside next time. It was closed when we got there.
My husband was very pleased with his steak and the dressing on the wedge was excellent. I felt that my shrimp tasted frozen.
I completely loved everything about it. From the ambience when you walk in to the recommendations made by not only our waitress Chris but also the manager. I was thoroughly impressed with how engaged the manager was with his customers. He personalized each visit with each table. The food, hands down is extremely delicious especially the crème brûlée! I will definitely dine here again.
Everything was awesome! The food was delicious and perfectly cooked. Our waitress was incredibly friendly.
We've been coming here for years, and Bookbinder's is always top notch. The food, service, ambience are all fantastic. You will not be disappointed. We always cannot wait to go back again.
First time eating at Bookbinders since moving to Virginia a couple years ago and everything was excellent. My wife and I will definitely be returning in the future.
The service was wonderful and food was delicious! The waiter was great but the hostess was not acceptable. She was very rude and made myself and my guests uncomfortable. Not welcoming or understanding at all. Told me that I could not be seated or that I could not afford the seating for my guests. The manager was very understanding and assisted us with accommodations. I will return to the establishment again for dinner and pass the word on to other friends and family.
Again thank you for a great birthday dinner celebration
Our meal and service were excellent!
The lobster was excellent and cooked to perfection. The Oysters Rockefeller were the best I've ever had. A few service details diminished the experience. The waiter forgot to put in my cocktail order as well as my order for a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand. I was not provided with any utensils for the lobster until I asked for them. My dining partner did not get bearnaise sauce on her filet even though the waiter brought it up and she requested it. Considering the quality of the service it was a very expensive disappointing dining experience.
we love this restaurant for their seafood and have never been disappointed. We had the lobster. the seafood salad with a dozen of raw clams as a starter. Everything was delicious and the service was wonderful.
The food was perfect. Best ribeye in years! Lobster Mac and cheese, creamed spinach and mashed potatoes went with it perfectly.
Excellent food, and great atmosphere. Friendly service. Parking available. Pricey, but worth it !
Great experience, would recommend over and over again!
My friend and I had first experience with Bookbinder's recently. Both had the stuffed
lobster which was excellent and the wine was very good. Service was superb and waiter
Dave made excellent suggestions since it was our first time. It definitely will not be our
Best crab cakes hands down. The lobster Mac and cheese was lacking in flavor. Needed a stronger cheese and definitely more lobster. Didn’t even know it was there. Overall very nice experience. Outside area needs to be kept clear of cleaning supplies.
Zach was a great waiter! Awesome recommendations! Will definitely come back
Alex was fantastic. The food was great. Quickly seated at our reservation time. The whole experience was great. I loved the crabcakes!
Excellent Service. Excellent ambiance. Very quick
Excellent customer service
Incredible food and service! We went for our 25th anniversary and the gave us custom printed menus with "Happy 25th Anniversary" printed on them to keep.
First impressions are everything, and everything was wonderful! Our meal was perfect, the atmosphere was wonderful and we thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience! We very much look forward to next time!
Birthday. Was there with my in-laws from Philadelphia. It was a great dining experience. Food and service were outstanding and John is always such a great host.
Great food, great service
We’ll be back!
I came in tonight for a birthday dinner with my friends. I just want to thank you all for such a pleasant dining experience. The atmosphere, personalized menus, food, and waiter (Chris) was exceptional! The general manager even came out and greeted our table. Your establishment is truly a gem! I’ve spent the past few months living through you all’s IG posts, glad I finally got to be there in person. Looking forward to the next visit. Definitely at the top of my favorites.
Great food, great service, a little pricey but excellent restaurant. Server was knowledgeable of that nights specials and up to speed on market value on lobster. We will definitely be back!!
Cleanliness for us is primordial.
Food temperature: Perfect.
Food presentation: Perfect.
Quality and taste: Prefect.
Service: Very good.
Small details that make a restaurant go the extra mile. Just a matter of pushing the envelope a little extra, allows a business to charge more for their products and services, and people would not mind paying more for a lot more in return than the average restaurants we all go to.
My wife and I, have decided that it is better to go to an exquisite, and outstanding place like Book Binders, than go three or four times to a franchise restaurant, which we will always regret.
Like I have always said to family and friends. Save your money from mediocre dining experiences, and indulge yourselves, once every while, at a great place like Book Binders.
We loved it and are going back very soon!
Thank you all folks at Book Binders.
