Meat was superb. A little too salty on the veggies for our taste. Buckheads gives you salad and veggies and a as it was my wife’s birthday, a complimentary flourless chocolate cake.

One of Richmond’s best!

We were excited to try Buckheads and thought the bread and butter were amazing as was the escargots and filet mignon with bear side. The halibut was good but the quinoa under it was too salty. Worth another visit. Service was excellent.

My review reflects more my personal experience rather than that of my companions. They had filet and rib eye and proclaimed their dishes very good. Unfortunately, I oped for the veal chop and was very disappointed. It was gristly and chewy and sauced with a creation I thought did not go well with the meat. The vegetables that came with the dishes were good, although not hot when served. The bread (rolls) were overcooked and hard on the outside. Our server, Ryan, was pleasant and for the most part attentive.
The tab for four was $436 with tip. That included three drinks, a bottle of lower end wine, three appetizers and two desserts. I know all restaurants have raised their prices a lot in the past five years, but I feel nearly $50 for a steak is excessive.
To my mind, there was not $436 worth of fine dining in the experience. I'll not go back.

Wonderful date night for husband’s birthday- Buckheads is his favorite place to go for a special occasion. It was just what we needed for a long overdue date night out! Food, ambience, wine, service …all was exceptional. Definitely recommend the Steak Fromage and steak topped with crab entrees!!

We joined friends here for a birthday celebration. I had been wanting to go here for a long time because I had heard nothing but great reviews. Let me tell you Buckheads did not disappoint. Our meals surpassed fantastic and the service was top notch. Definitely one of the most hidden gems in Richmond!!

We were having a family reunion on short notice, and Buckhead's accommodated us per my request with a table for 6 that was quiet, away from other tables, and great for conversation. Actually, I added an extra person the day of, and had to call in that we were slightly delayed, and Buckhead's took this in stride. When the oldsters at the table indicated wanting actual menus as opposed to the cell phone thing these were provided. Our waiter took an interest in the family reunion, and listened carefully to our orders and got them right. This is not a restaurant with a trending menu, more traditional, but that was just right for our occasion. Everyone found an agreeable selection, enjoyed their meal and pretty much cleaned their plate. I had salmon, my fallback healthy entree, and the preparation compared well with other places.

The absolutely perfect special occasion dining spot! Nothing about the experience could have been any better - great ambiance, food, and service. Steaks were top quality and perfectly prepared. Our waiter had just the right level of being available without hovering. Even our leftovers were expertly packaged!

Decided to have a date night on a Tuesday - July 20, 2021 (not a busy evening). We arrived all excited to give this place a try. Unfortunately, the entire experience just starts bad from the time we are seated with our server. Rude, brash, unapologetically unhelpful. Short with us when we asked questions about the menu/substitutions. Leaning on the wall/furniture while talking to us. Didn't seem to want to be there serving our table, unkempt, shirt untucked.

A table of 3 older couples behind us - the server provided a total different level of service to them - more interaction, brought them menus out, made jokes with them, was constantly checking on them and asking them questions and answering their questions about changing stuff. We are in our mid-30s and these couples were probably in their late 50s. Just amazed me the lack of service and stark difference in service being provided between them and us.

Paid the bill, then politely brought up our experience with the manager. She seemed to be receptive and said she would reach out to me (we shall see...). She did ask me to stay for a drink and dessert but by that point we had already paid and we were done and had decided to get dessert else where. I am not saying that Buckheads is a bad place, just our experience after all the hype and excellent reviews that friends and clients had told us was disappointing to say the least. 90% of eating out at places like this is the experience and service...in my opinion. And not really what I was expecting.

Such a classy place, with excellent food and beverages. The wine and liquor selection is amazing, and the food is always good - steaks cooked perfectly. I tried the fish for the first time and it was outstanding as well. The wait staff is professional and friendly at the same time, and are not at all intrusive. Never feel rushed here, and it's quiet enough that you can carry on a conversation. It's my go-to special occasion place, but is also approachable for more frequent dining.

FROM THE TIME YOU WALK IN, AND EXPERIENCE THE JAZZ COMING OVER THE SOUND SYSTEM TO THE FIRST CLASS SERVICE. BUCKHEADS IS A DINING EXPERIENCE. THE FOOD WAS EXQUISITE, THE TUNA STARTERS WERE SPOT ON, AND THE STEAKS COOKED PERFECTLY, PECAN PIE FOR DESSERT WAS THE BEST I HAVE EVER HAD. THE PRICE WAS WELL WORTH IT.
