The food was fantastic. The Kona Coffee crusted Filet may easily be one of the best steaks I have had.
Wonderful, staff, wonderful food!! Always a pleasure
We went on a double date with another couple. Just a couple of adults out for the night, without kids. It’s was a wonderful experience and felt nice to dress up and feel fancy for a few hours!
Service was great. Food was excellent. The President's Room was a little bright for a romantic dinner.
Everything was perfect!
The food was amazing. Made the Birthday celebration very special.
One of the best meals that I have had all year; the service was excellent and the food was perfect!!! Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Richmond, Virginia. The creamed corn, gigantic baked potato and filet are definitely worth trying.
Took my wife for our anniversary, staff was very polite and helpful. Would recommend highly
Absolutely amazing experience. I made reservations for my friend’s birthday and we were blown away by the amazing greeting by the owner himself, who helped us take photos. The outdoor seating arrangement was amazing; more than 6 feet apart- very spacious and we felt safe. The place anticipating our every need. A must for a fine dining experience.
The restaurant is pleasant. The staff is agreeable. However, the food was below average for a topnotch steak and seafood restaurant. My snapper soup was lukewarm. My entree, the veal chop, was tough and likely microwaved before grilling. My baked potato was very good. My wife's seafood salad was mediocre. The shrimp tasted chewy. The drinks and desserts were fine. It was a lot money given the food was below average. Our friends, from New Jersey, had eaten in the original restaurant in Philly and were not impressed.
Lovely evening. Dining al fresco!
Beautiful restaurant with amazing food. Great place for an anniversary!
Amazing atmosphere for a nice quiet romantic dinner. Food was incredible. Will definitely be returning!
We went back for a delicious intimate dinner after having our wedding dinner their a few nights earlier.
We had a lovely time and our waiter Mark was the best. When we go back we’re definitely going to request him again!
Bookbinders was delicious! My group absolutely loved it!
The outside patio is gorgeous. Our waiter was perfect. Food was delicious. Very pricey but it was anniversary and we enjoyed every moment of it
We had a wonderful meal, celebrating my birthday. The food was exceptional, as was dessert. Our server was attentive and helped with our questions. We highly recommend the filet and scallops. Bonus: a downtown restaurant with their own parking lot.
As always, Bookbinder's never disappoints. So glad they have survived this pandemic. Our waiter is usually the bartender and he was great. You can't go wrong with the porkchop or filet and don't forget the desserts.
The service was outstanding and so was the food. The family was out in public for the first time since the pandemic and we got a little sense of normalcy. The staff was all masked and careful with their social distancing. Our waiter had great timing and we never had to look around for him, he always knew when we needed anything. Review the menu on line as part of their preventive measures no paper menus. A lovely evening and Bookbinders made it memorable.
We always love going to Bookbinders. The food and service is great. We had the raw clams, the seafood salad and the halibut special. All delicious. My only complaint is that the wine is so expensive. A glass of pinot grigio is $14 for just a regular italian pinot grigio. I keep hoping they will come up with a house white that would be $8-10. Much more reasonable.
Gorgeous outdoor venue!
Food, excellent, as always; time between salad and dinner a bit long.
Great service and incredible food.
Prices are WHEW, but the service, food, and atmosphere are definitely worth the price. Coctails were rather more expensive than I thought they were worth, but I'd buy the food and enjoy another dinner there again in a heartbeat.
Our steaks were done exactly as we ordered them.. our waiter was excellent and extremely pleasant and brought us a small glass of champagne to celebrate our anniversary. Everything was great.
Went there to celebrate a birthday with family. This was during COVID season, so booking this in demand restaurant through Open Table was a must. Our waiter was superb, and the food was above expectations. Always pleased to have a special occasion to come here!
WE had an excellent evening. Our server Chris was great. The food was fantastic. We will definitely go back
This restaurant was exceptional. The food was good, the service was great, and the ambience was superb.
Great Anniversary Dinner!
Fantastic as always! The food is wonderful, I highly recommend the crab cocktail and the oysters. The steaks are amazing and the side dishes are large enough to be shared for 3-4.
This restaurant is beautiful inside and out. The service was phenomenal and the food was excellent. We even had the opportunity to meet the owner who was very friendly and welcoming. I ordered the crusted seared tuna dish (I think was the name) and it was the best tuna I ever had and I'm a pescatarian. Highly recommend this place for date night, celebrations, with groups of family and friends. Will definitely be returning.
The food and service was nothing short of amazing!!! The ambiance was perfect. We sat outside and it was a perfect night. Our server was Mark, he was extremely pleasant and delightful. The owner was very welcoming and very helpful to take great pictures of us. Definitely would make it a priority to come back to eat next time we’re in Richmond.
We'd been to Bookbinders a couple of times, but they never disappoint! Such delicious food and Patrice was an excellent server. She was attentive but not overbearing, allowing us to enjoy our meal but also checking in frequently enough to make sure we didn't need anything.
Amazing anniversary dinner! Wonderful food and wine. Perfect service.
Entertaining out of town guests and wanted to be assured of an outdoor table reservation. Bookbinder's provided that. The outdoor courtyard was wonderful. Mostly the food was very good. Snapper soup and veal chop special were excellent. Crabcake was very good. Scallops were good. Stuffed mushrooms were disappointing. Bread pudding was excellent. Chocolate cake was dry. Giving 5 stars for the venue. Overall the food was inconsistent.
One of the best dining options in Richmond. Excellent food and spectacular service. You will not be disappointed.
The ambiance was lovely. Some of the food dishes weren't great. Overall experience was good.
