Bookbinders is a first class seafood and steakhouse restaurant. It is easily the equal of better-known establishments such as Ruth's Chris, Capital Grille, and Morton's. The menu selections are excellent and some are creative. The wine list is guaranteed to please anyone, and is reasonably priced. I had the Petite Filet Mignon, which, at 8 oz, is the same size as other establishments' larger portion. The Diane Sauce that I ordered with the filet consisted of a very tasty cream sauce with mushrooms. Excellent! My wife ordered the Lobster Mac. She said it was the best such dish she has ever had. Finally, our server, Avery, was a key ingredient in the memorable meal we had at Bookbinder's.
By far the best Steak and Seafood restaurant in the greater Richmond area.
Great quality food, always perfectly cooked.
Service is attentive and impeccably professional. Asia, our server, is the best.
I took my wife therefore her birthday. The ambience
was good, food was even better and the service was at its best. We will definitely be back soon. Great restaurant
I enjoyed the atmosphere. We were there for a birthday celebration and the menu book actually had a happy birthday wish from the staff, that was surprisingly nice. The waiter was very nice and helpful. We also enjoyed being able to see the train from the window, very nice touch. The food was very good and the pricing was average for this upscale restaurant.
Great food. If you are a tuna fan the Cajun tuna bite appetizer is a must!!
One of the best restaurants in Richmond! I have dined with book binders over ten times!
This was our 4th visit to Bookbinder's and we felt each visit was better than the last one! We rank Bookbinder's as good as any 5 Star Restaurant in Richmond!
Recently diagnosed gluten intolerant
So I was very upset to be going to dinner and not sure what if anything I could eat
Much to my delight
Bookbinder’s has a totally gluten free menu!
Service was excellent
One of my favorite restaurants from now on!!
The ambiance is wonderful. However, the food was quite ordinary in taste and presentation, but overpriced. It seems to be more of a status type of venue. It’s great to experience the atmosphere and surrounding area. You could get a better product and value at many chain restaurants. I would not patronize again.
Amazing food, friendly staff, kind owner. Get the ancho ribeye, skip the lobster Mac.
One word.....AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING!!!!!!!!!
Great food but our Filet Mignon was a little overdone and tough. Pricing is high. Best Clam chowder though! Pretty Restaurant
The food here was amazing and cooked to perfection and exactly how we ordered it. The service was a little slow, but that may have been because it was the weekend before Valentine's Day and maybe they were very busy. The owner came around to every table personally to ask how everyone enjoyed their meal, which was nice and felt personal, but he slightly overstayed his welcome at each table. Overall, a great date restaurant.
Great service and food. Adding our names and anniversary message to the menu was a lovely surprise touch!
It was a very nice dinner with great service
Outstanding dining experience! Wonderful cocktails and wine list. Food was prepared perfectly and served professionally. Perhaps a bit pricey, but all in all a delightful evening.
Excellent food, perfectly cooked and didn’t feel rushed. Steak was cooked to order, great wine list and oyster Rockefeller is a must for appetizer. The flavors compliment the oysters well.
Amazing food, everything I had was top notch!
Great place to eat . Especially if you are trying to wine and dine your significant other . Very classy and the food was great and my waiter was very nice . Thank you to the owner who actually stopped at my table and talked to me and my date . God Bless him. Go Eagles!
My husband and I went there on our date night! With so many empty tables , the hostess put us st a table next to groups of people! They were celebrating so it was noisy! Our waiter was great and very attentive but for the food was mediocre and nothing really that especial! I don’t think will be back there again !!
loud but food and service good as always. Our server ASIA was very pleasant and effective.
Everything was delightful and I strongly recommend the key lime pie.
In Richmond for a dog show and absolutely loved everything about this restaurant. If you'e familiar with the original from Philadelphia, and miss it , its a must go and experience it all over again. I'm not a big seafood eater like my husband, and the kitchen prepared a lovely pasta entree for me.
Recently dined at Bookbinders for a special birthday dinner for 8 people. Really happy when we were seated in a separate alcove within the restaurant which gave us some privacy (also nice because we had a child in our party as well). They also printed up a special menu in advance with the name of our birthday guest at the top which was a nice touch. The food was great and served at a reasonable pace with no complaints on overall quality (the steaks were especially tasty). The menu is very pricey, but Bookbinders is a great choice for a splurge outing to celebrate a special occasion.
Loved the food and service!
The food was AMAZING! However our server wasn’t the friendliest.
Quite pricey but not outstanding. Service was friendly but food came out quite slowly, considering the number of tables occupied. For the money, it needs to be better.
I'm remiss in not writing my review sooner of our Wedding Anniversary Dinner. My excuse is that if I wrote the review, the wonderful night would be over. Almost a month later I am savoring every moment of the ambiance, food, service and romantic atmosphere. Every single moment was perfection, from the moment we walked in, to receiving a beautiful table in the beautiful room, to the visit from Jayme Taxin (one of the owners), to the marvelous dessert -- it was absolute a great night. The steak was perfection, the side orders heaping and the table was absolutely stunning. Thank you for a night of perfection.
The food, and drinks were amazing as usual. There were a couple of large groups that occupied a large part our waitresses time, which is not the norm in our past visits. But it was still a terrific evening, and we will be back!
We went for my girlfriends birthday dinner. Everything was great and they even customized the menu with her name on it. I highly recommend this restaurant. The atmosphere was great food superb.
