Good experience here with my husband for my birthday dinner. Waiter never mentioned the occasion so we just let it be. Owner came by tables but missed ours as we were having a romantic moment. Not sure if that was intentional or to give us privacy. Steaks were juicy and delicious as was the raw tuna appetizer as well as the NE clam chowder. Great place for a special occasion or private function. A bit pricey but well worth it. We were returning guest who highly recommend and will return in the near future.

This was a date night for me and the wife. We arrived 15 minutes early for out reservation and were seated immediately. Our waiter was on point all night and the appetizers and meals arrived in a timely manor.

I try to go as often as I can. Its great with special friends and all enjoy the cozy atmosphere. The filets are the best in town and the Lobster mac and cheese is always a big hit. Still remains my favorite restaurant in Richmond. Like to get there about 45 minutes before seating to enjoy the bar, we love Morgan, she seems to always be there. We have had large groups there as well and they have great private accommodations.
Strongly recommend Bookbinders!

The food and ambiance was excellent. The waitress was horrible. She continuously reached across me to pour drinks and conduct refills. Most unacceptable was when she handed my wife coffee with spilled coffee on the saucer. I gave my coffee and clean saucer to my wife, handed my wife's coffee back to waitress, just to have her pour the coffee on her tray and hand it back to me. I immediately asked for a new cup of coffee with a clean saucer. I get better service at Starbucks and do not have to pay over $200 for a meal.
