Carla was a superb waitress!
Enjoyed my first experience. I was in town for my sorority’s Regional Conf for Alpha Kappa Alpha and wanted something delicious to eat. Well the search didn’t last long as the menu online looked inviting. My cousin and I ordered a sip and an appetizer before our entree and knew right then, we made the right choice. The food was absolutely delectable. The atmosphere and area was very comfortable. We will definitely revisit in the near future. Thumbs UP!
Our Server was outstanding but more formal than what we would’ve preferred, fine dining doesn’t necessarily mean uncomfortably quiet ambience and extremely formal interactions. The food was delicious!
You need to just go here everything was 100% food atmosphere name it
Our server was attentive, made wonderful recommendations, and let us enjoy our meal peacefully. Food was excellent and ambiance was just what we wanted for a quiet, romantic evening
We had a wonderful meal with great service. We just moved to the area and will certainly be back!
Great food, excellent wine selection, outstanding service in a unique and relaxing surrounding. Plenty of close by parking.
Exquisite as always!!!!
The food was absolutely delicious. When it comes to food, I’m very hard to please! However, Bookbinders took my pallet to new heights! Great food and customer service!
Great anniversary spot for us. Great service. Seafood oysters could have been bigger but may have been out of season. Overall I was pleased
Service, food everything was perfect. Well done
Very nice restaurant, had a lovely dinner, crab cakes and cowboy ribeye was phenomenal.
Stodgy but in a good way. Incredible food. I had the crab cake, my wife had the petit filet and both were outstanding. We had the lobster mac and cheese and the creamed spinach for sides. Also excellent.
The only wrinkle and I hesitate to bring it up, was my Old Fashioned suffered from a bit too heavy of a pour. I switched to Moscow Mules and all was right.
First time we have been in probably 15 years but they've only gotten better in our absence.
We enjoyed every minute of our dinner. And will definitely be going back very soon
My date and I were seated at the “Governor’s Table”. The owner checked on us and made us feel welcome with pleasant conversation and shared some of the history of the business. Service was very attentive. Our server made me a special mojito mocktail which added to the occasion. Food came out quickly was was cooked to perfection. Ordered a side of spinach because I always like to have a vegetable with my meal (grilled Scottish salmon stuffed with crab). The side was plenty to share with my date who enjoyed the surf and turf. The dessert looked tempting but alas no room as I had to take home a doggie bag of leftovers, and I have a healthy appetite! Would highly recommend for a date or any occasion. This place is a gem and the owners are gracious and hospitable. I’ll be back!
Was no lobster in the lobster Mac and cheese or the lobster bisque. The pork chop was good but dry.
Food was great only to be exceeded by the service.
Great restaurant food was excellentt
Best place in town celebrated my birthday and the food is all was amazing
Calamari was cold and food is over priced. $96 for a 3 lb. lobster with no sides is ridiculous for Richmond.
Off the chain. VERY impressed and anxious to return 😁
Best surf and turf eaten so far. No leftovers!
I was looking for a place to treat my wife of 29 years to a special dinner. Neither of us had ever been to Bookbinder’s but I had heard from some co-workers. The meal was wonderful and so was the service and atmosphere. We loved it.
My husband took me to Bookbinder’s for my birthday. The food was outstanding, as was the service and ambiance. We would highly recommend.
Amazing place. Wonderful waiter. Super food.. great history. Good ambiance.
Our entire experience was amazing. We were celebrating our sons birthday and couyhave been any better!!
Our server was excellent and very attentive. We enjoyed a special evening with our daughter and husband. The steaks were cooked to perfection. We are definitely returning soon. Thank you for an enjoyable evening!
Outstanding performance by the staff
My wife and friends thoroughly enjoyed ourselves
Amazing food. Amazing service. My steak was one of the best I’ve had.
My wife and I were visiting Richmond, VA, on a Valentine's Holiday. Our dining experience at Bookbinders Seafood and Steakhouse was superb. Upon entering the door, my wife and I were greeted professionally by a very top-notch staff. The hostess immediately verified my (Open Table) reservation and seated us promptly. Rebecca was our host/waitress, and she provided a supreme dining atmosphere with outstanding recommendations to my wife and me. She was very professional, courteous, and listened attentively to our dinner requests. Rebecca recommended the Kona Coffee Filet for the Stuffed Salmon and me for my wife. Afterward, we had the exquisitely handcrafted Creme Brulee. During our dining, Andre (Manager) visited our table to ensure that everything was in order. We expressed that beginning to end, everything was superb. We will surely return to Bookbinders Seafood and Steakhouse upon my return to Richmond. Thank you for a beautiful evening.
Took my 2 Valentines out for dinner. The food and service were amazing
The food and service were excellent. The filet was very tender and flavorful. My only concern was the bill. A tip was automatically factored into the bill. For large groups, that may be fine. For two people, that is not necessary. We can figure our own tip. I did not appreciate this.
Outstanding... lobster tail not completely cooked!!! But overall very good..
Great experience, and our waiter Zach was very knowledgeable about anything we asked him , he was probably the best waiter I’ve ever had. The food was great, wine great, atmosphere great...................mannnnnnnn the whole damn place and all the staff was great.
Promt courteous service/staff. Great food and selection.
We were in the President's room, which is a great venue. The food was outstanding. We had very attentive servers. Overall, it was a great meal.
We had a wonderful time at Bookbinder’s! This was our first visit and we loved everything about it. From the setting, to the music, and most importantly: the food! Everything was delicious and high quality. We will definitely be back!
Very professional and food was excellent! You get what you pay for.
Excellent as usual!
Food was delicious and Service was great.

Delicious food in an historic environment. The menu is a great combination of steak and seafood options. The Rockfish special was amazing.
