We have lived in Richmond a long time and tried all the steakhouses here. Buckheads continues to be the best. Great food and great service.

Thank goodness Daniel Radcliffe advises how much he liked the steak fromage. It was the best thing I’ve eaten in a long time. Absolutely loved it but would not have chosen it normally. So very happy I did. Amazing. Wonderful birthday meal. Will be back!

Predictably the best steak in Richmond. Extensive wine list including domestic and international standouts. Service and food are great. Please, enjoy!

The service was exceptional. I ordered the prime rib it was awful fatty, no flavor it wasn't served hot tasted stringy. I didn't say anything I didn't want the friends to feel uncomfortable. What a let down.

My wife and I celebrated her birthday at Buckheads on Oct. 6. As usual the food (8oz filet mignons) was outstanding - seared just perfectly to lock in all of the juicy flavors that one expects from a filet. Service was just right - perfect blend of attentiveness without being obtrusive. Ambience was quiet and relaxing. Total experience was outstanding and thoroughly enjoyable, but it's what we've come to expect from Buckheads

One of Richmond's best steakhouses, especially if one is in the West End. The food and the staff are always at their best seven nights a week.

Great steak and sides. Great wait staff once started. A bit of a delay in recieving menus and drink orders. Enjoyed the atmosphere once a loud couple finished and left. Will definitely go back.

What a wonderful experience! We were seated straightaway at a nice table. Service was pleasant and efficient without being intrusive. We were able to chat easily even though the room was fairly full. And, the Steak Fromage was spectacular!!

We had something to celebrate so we made reservations and drove 45 mins to enjoy a fine dining resturant. Our Server Dan was awful. Ordered 150 dollar bottle of wine and 2 apps. The Classic Escargot and Sesame Seared Ahi Tuna
were excellent. Soon after, we found ourselves sitting with dirty dishes and an empty bottle of wine. My husband flagged down Dan. Once Dan returned, we ordered another bottle of the same wine. After 15 mins he returned with the bottle but NO fresh wine glasses. We ordered our meal. Rack of Lamb, ask for med rare and the Steak Fromage, rare. Salads came out in a timely manner. After we finished our salads, we again sat with dirty dishes until Dan delivered the main course, at which time we ordered a 3rd bottle of wine. Dan left rigjt away not bothering to see if our meats were properly cooked. Both lamb and Filet were med. well. The Gorgonzola cheese crumbles on the filet had turned to cheese spread. Certain the Chef's had properly cooked the meats but our meals sat under heat lamps waiting for Dan or a food runner. Flagging down Dan once again so we could get meals that we ordered and ask AGAIN for another bottle of wine. Once we received our meal, it WAS outstanding, perfect. We finally received our wine in time to finish the last few bites.
This IS a FINE dinning resturant therefore, you do have expectations and Chef's
DO NOT over cook meats.
Dan DID NOT live up to a 5 Star Restaurant. We will return but we'll ask not to be seated in Dan's area.

Sat is a back room that was more private! Could not eat the potatoes due to saltiness and we had to refill our own wine glasses. Never saw our waiter smile.

This was my first visit to buckheads. The ambiance was good, but the waiter we had spoiled it and the food. He wasn’t friendly and it took forever to get our food. I’d suggest going to Morton’s or Ruth’s Chris.

We've been to Buckheads many times in the past and it was good enough for us to drive 70 miles in the past. Sunday night was completely different. Our server didn't visit our table and we had to request another waiter to get him several times. Also we requested our steaks cooked med to med-well and they were Over well-done/burnt. Very disappointed.

My husband, sister, and mother and I had dinner to commemorate my mom’s move into assisted living. Stephen provided expert service throughout. Appetizer salads were fresh and all our steaks were cooked just the way we ordered. Wine prices are reasonable relative to other restaurants of this caliber. Our usual table was not available due to a private party in that room but the hostess ensured that we were given our choice of available tables and we were pleased with where we were seated. Another excellent experience!

Truly my favorite RVA steakhouse. They consistently overperform both with wine and food. This is an easy recommendation for those who ask.

Delicious food, perfect atmosphere, and excellent service. Thank you for making my mom's 70th birthday so enjoyable! We celebrated her 50th birthday at Buckheads, so it was fun to return for another momentous occasion. We look forward to returning for another celebration.

We ordered the surf and turf and the filets were cooked perfectly however they were bland and not overwhelming. The lobster tails were not that great either. For $73, I expected better.
