    Decided to have a romantic weekend in Richmond for our anniversary. We stayed at the Jefferson and ate dinner at Lemaire. Everything was very good. High quality and the service was solid. The scallops were a stand out—definitely worth the price. That said, the place is a bit stuffy, and while everything was good, I don’t think it was worth the overall price tag.

    My friend and I went for lunch and had a wonderful experience. Easily one of the best burgers I’ve ever had. We also shared the shrimp cocktail and hot honey BLT. Everything was absolutely delicious. Can’t wait to go back again.

    Excellent food and service, but we were seated in the bar area and it was very loud. We brought out-of-state guests to experience the atmosphere of Lemaire, but that atmosphere doesn’t exist in the bar area.

    This was my father’s 92nd birthday. The food was amazing, and the service was spectacular. They even printed a menu with “Happy 92nd Birthday “ on it. It was a magical evening!! My father will be talking about this special evening for a while.

    Great creative food, great service and ambience is top shelf. Unfortunately the food was served one dish at a time to our table of 3. But it will not prevent me from going back to this restaurant. Mistakes happen once in a while.

    Our meal was fabulous from start to finish, service, ambiance, food, presentation. I noted on the reservation that we were celebrating our anniversary, and the menus we were provided wished us happy anniversary - a very nice touch. We enjoyed crab cake and gazpacho to start and steak and scallops for our entrees - all great selections…

    We stayed at the Jeffereson hotel over Labor Day weekend attending a wedding. The food for the reshearsal dinner was outstanding, and our lunches were equally as good. The service was consistently good, and the atmoshpere and ambiance of the lounge and various dining areas adds to the experience. Highly recommend
