Was told it was the best in Richmond. Wasn’t busy so expected decent service. They didn’t have the first two bourbons I ordered but their third suggestion was good. Service was slow. I don’t know if it was the server or kitchen. I have a feeling order was missed by someone. Salad was good. My wife’s soup was great. Bread great. Side mushrooms had no taste. Creamed spinach was ok. Steaks were good but a tad cool, I suspect they were up and sat for a couple minutes. Server was very pleasant but disappeared a couple times. Price was usual for upscale steakhouse.

Since I’ve heard raves about Buckheads since I moved here, I really expected a lot more. I’ll chaulk this up to a bad night but really no excuse to miss the mark so badly on what was a typical order for them on a non busy Wednesday night.

Our experience was just great. It was our grown daughter's birthday. They brought her a decadent chocolate slab of cake with a candle, so she was delighted. The food & wine were absolutely wonderful. Our steaks were cooked perfectly with all the trimmings so tasty as well. Can't wait to go back very soon & often. The waiter was perfect too. Pricey but well worth it.

Took over 5 Minutes to be at knowledged at our table apparently the hostess failed to let the waiter know that we were in a back booth. Never got bread. Finally got water after asking for it. The food was good but for the price was not excellent

This was a special meal to celebrate family achievement and the food and gastronomy seemed excellent from the website. We were sitting next to a algebloud and rambunctious and obnoxious family celebrating their elders which is fine except that the crackle of them was annoying for a restaurant that should have had more class. This wasn’t charged at he level of Applebee’s.
Despite the environment being cloying irritating and frankly distracting from this loud family, we were one table of five that had to listen and watch their energy level rise to a frenzy when someone opens a gift of a lamp made in honor of Elvis. I frankly from the east coast would never tolerate this in a restaurant like this in nyc
It was disrespectful
Regardless the food was superlative from scallops with potato gnocchi to the bread pudding
The meal would have bee graded higher if not for this disruptive environment
The management should know better or they can surely not see me there again

Fantastic steak and chop house. The staff are top notch professionals. Many have been with Buckheads for years, which is unusual for the restaurant business. Food is exceptional. Clearly one of the top restaurants in the Richmond area.

Our first visit. Four out of five liked their meals. The person who had the rockfish special was disappointed by the fish (strong fishy taste). Otherwise the steaks and salmon were very good. NY strip steak was particularly good. Would definitely recommend the strip steak. Pomme frites and crabmeat appetizers also excellent.

The food and wine were amazing! Our waiter was very attentive and polite. We were surprised about how busy it was for a Tuesday night which made it a little loud and felt a little crowded. But as I said, the food won us over- perfectly cooked steaks, delicious crab cakes, and a phenomenal blackberry cheesecake. We’ll be back!

Buckhead's is absolutely the best steakhouse in Richmond! Every meal there has been superb and the service is perfect. Cocktails are excellent and they have an outstanding list of Scotches. Side orders and appetizers are large and delicious. One of our "go to" places for a special occasion!

We made a reservation for Sunday night when they wouldn't be as busy. Upon arriving the hostess tried to seat us at a 2-top up against the wall when they had plenty of 4-top available.
I declined and she let us pick our seats. She shouldn't have tried to seat us at a 2-top in the beginning.

We had a reason to celebrate so we decided to go with the whole family.

To a person everyone flat out loved their food. The aged steaks are fork tender and flavorful, Portions are generous, perfectly cooked as well. The sides and appetizers are fantastic and the wine list extensive. HOT bread was fantastic. There was nothing at all I would change!

The service was well paced without long delays or feeling rushed.

I recommend the crab and steak. Huge lumps of back fin sweet crab meat and a delicious sauce.

The calamari, scallops and seared tuna appetizers were very good and devoured.

While the prices are expensive they are a bargain for the quality you are getting. My meal would have been double in any big city in the US and likely not as good.

The food was on par with the Prime 44 steakhouse at the Greenbrier in WVA and that is saying something.

We will be back!!

We fell in love with Buckhead's. Mark and our server Rick went above and beyond to make sure we had a special meal. Steaks were cooked to perfection. Don't skip on the pan-seared scallops and pommes frites - both were stand out. For fine dining, Buckhead's is incredibly approachable with a cozy and relaxed atmosphere. We'll be back.

Somewhat disappointed this visit, it is the little things that make a difference whether the experience is good or great - Buckheads is good, where Ruths Chris, Mortons and Flemmings are great. OK, I am spoiled and expect to be treated as a lady - host didn’t pull my chair out for me and was blocking my husband so he couldn’t get over to do it, then was disappointed they didn’t have just plain iced tea (how is that not a staple?). I had told them when making the reservation we were celebrating a Birthday and Valentines, not even the slightest mention from the host or waiter or even asking if we were celebrating anything special - then when my husband got up to go to the bathroom the waiter comes and hands ME the check - sorry, I am old school, the gentlemen should pay or at the very least the waiter should have waited until both parties have returned to their seats and put it in the middle of the table. Food was good, but was grossed out when we got home and realized the waiter put all of our left overs in the same food container when we had two completely separate meals - prices are great - but again it is those little things when it comes to service and the customer experience that make them lackluster compared to the competition.

Don’t let the location fool you. The food and service is excellent. The noise level from the bar area and the restroom location keeps this from being a truly fine dining experience but not enough that I would not recommend it.
