    Dined here to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. Place was busy even on a Tuesday evening, but we were promptly seated at our reservation time. Service and food were both excellent. We enjoyed every part of our dinner at Buckheads.

    Service and food were outstanding. The quality of the food was excellent and we were well taken care of. It was not too loud and easy to have a conversation over dinner. Expensive, but again, the quality of the food made it worth it.

    Food was not as good as usual...steaks were medium instead of medium-rare but still tasted good and the mashed potatoes were a little salty. Service was outstanding and the salads and escargots were perfection.

    Buckheads has been a Richmond establishment for decades and it shows! This was my first time and it truly did not disappoint. Fantastic “old-school” charm and ambiance, but with attention to detail to make any occasion an experience. We will certainly return!

    Overall we enjoyed our meal. We ordered filet and cowboy ribeye and both were cooked perfectly and were delicious. What I really appreciate about Buckhead's is the attention to detail. Our appetizer, salad and dinner all came out at different times so you could enjoy each course without them piling food up in front of you in a rush to get you out the door.

    an excellent experience for anyone looking for a place to celebrate. I think our waiter's name was Shaun and he did a fantastic job taking care of us. My only note as a non-drinker is a wish for a mocktail or non-alcoholic menu for drinks, but Shaun had me covered with the peach-ginger tea and simple syrup. I was delighted that regular coffee was also available since we last went for an anniversary a couple of years ago, as I could only order a cappuccino while waiting for our table to be ready last time. 10/10

    Everything was awesome from the pre-dinner cocktails at the bar to our dinner in a cozy booth. Our steaks were cooked to perfection - I had the steak medallions with crab and my husband had the bone-in cowboy steak. I love that you get a salad, potato and veggies as part of your meal. We were celebrating my husband’s birthday and enjoyed the chocolate cake dessert on the house. We love dining at Buckheads - never had a bad meal in 15+ years.

    With a 5:00 p.m. dinner reservation, I was hosting five guests. The experience was somewhat disappointing. I base this review on my previous dining experiences at Buckheads,that I rated quite high. To begin, the service was very slow. It took longer to receive our orders than should have been the case. There was no customary preference to the two ladies having their orders taken first and their meals being served first. Again, at the presentation of the meals, I perceived fumbling about with mixing up orders and slow table side food preparation. A result of these shallow efforts,our food was less warm than expected and the lobsters actually being served cold. Then, there was more excessive waiting for the bill. We are not dispositioned to demonstrate our grievances in a public setting, hence this written review. I have not given up on Buckheads. I do not want, nor will i avcept any form of compensation. You have the story. The ball is in your court. Hopefully, any future dining can demonstrate improvements. Regards,
