Great food. Competent service. One misstep that the manager made right.
Awesome place for our anniversary dinner! They took special care of us and even gave us a special “happy anniversary” message on our dessert and menu!
This was our second visit to Lemaire. Both experiences were fantastic. Our waiter Michael was amazing. We will definitely come back.
Excellent whole oysters crispy fried appetizer; boneless braised short ribs had excellent reduction and were very tender, but quality of beef was not prime; both pecan crusted halibut and rockfish were first rate. Special wine by the glass (coravined) was disappointing, in bottle too long and poor QPR (rated 84 on cellar tracker)
Surroundings and service were exceptional and very fine on that order
It was my dads 70th birthday which I put in the reservation notes. They had specially printed menus that said “Happy 70th Birthday” written on top! They also brought him out a dessert with a candle and “Happy birthday” written beautifully in chocolate on the plate. The staff (Bruce in particular) was so attentive. SO glad we chose such a clsssy place to celebrate!
We were seated at a lovely quiet table, as requested. Our server was knowledgeable and helpful and not at all intrusive. The food was superb.
My server Victoria was phenomenal. Great service and delicious food. If your in Richmond, you must go to the Lemaire.
January 9 my daughter and my best friend and I were at the Jefferson as we were on our way to see dancing with the stars. We dined at Lemaire as it was convenient in the hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed our entrées and plan to return yearly!
The food was bland, unremarkable, and something I would expect from a standard American diner. As a former member of the culinary profession and a New Orleans native, I was woefully unimpressed by the overall experience of eating at your establishment.
The waiter was very friendly and attentive and the only remarkable thing aside from the building’s architecture.
The table wait staff and kitchen were outstanding. The dining rooms are spacious and elegant, with plenty of room between tables. Our waiter was just the right amount of attentive without being intrusive. The food was beautifully presented and cooked to perfection.
The only blemish on our evening was that the hostesses were perfunctory verging on unwelcoming and the table service in the bar (where we had to wait because we were 15 minutes early - yikes!) was slow, albeit personable when they did arrive.
All in all, a great dinner in a memorable restaurant in an exquisite setting.
We enjoyed our evening. Level of service was awesome. Food, atmosphere, everything great.
The food, drinks, wine and service were simply excellent. Food quality, presentation and timing of the courses were world class. Extremely helpful and experienced waiter. I would highly recommend Lemaire.
The atmosphere, service, and food are always excellent at Lemaire. It is my favorite place for a celebration and I highly recommend this restaurant.
Visiting our daughter
The table clothes were wrinkled. When I wear A black cocktail dress I expect a black napkin so I don’t have white stuff all over my dress from a white napkin. I would recommend you to my clients only because of the Richmond experience. The brunch is hands down fantastic!! But Lemaire is ok. I have not experienced the high tea but I hope I have a better experience
This was our first time dining at Lemaire and everything was delicious! I ordered the filet mignon and my husband had the scallops. Both were excellent. We will definitely return to dine here soon.
Always a big hit with my family members to honor a special occasion. The food is always delicious and the service exceptional. I appreciate the complimentary parking. Our return is guaranteed.
The service was lovely but a bit slow.. nothing to fret over .. just a bit slow. The presentation was beautiful. The salad and crab cake was delicious.. my husbands filet mignonette was prepared perfectly but my chicken was like warm which was disappointing. That’s why I needed to reduce the stars to 4.
Wonderful evening to start the New year!!!
Amazing !!! Our server was such an amazing person !!
As always, the service and food were excellent. They took special care for the birthday occasion and made it a wonderful experience.
This was my and my wife's 50th wedding anniversary dinner, and it could not have been better. Our waIter was super, the food absolutely wonderful and the ambiance was spectacular. A truly wonderful and memorable evening.
We had a wonderful time and our server Rich was the best. He took great care of us and was very friendly
We take our children for dinner every December 26, and it never disappoints.
Excellent Christmas Eve dinner. We were the last seating, and the wait staff was so gracious. Rich served us and was great. I look forward to dining there again!
Lemaire was absolutely the perfect restaurant to have reservations for Christmas Eve. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it.
One word... exquisite.
We arrived with our family from
Out of town for a special
Once a year dinner. We were promised two tables next to each other
Excellent food, ambiance, and service as always. Highly recommend. We will be back!
Perfect setting for a holiday celebration! Our meal and service exceeded our expectations. Salads were fresh and deliciously blended. We both chose the Broiled Flounder and loved every bite, very light and well seasoned . Plate presentation and eye appeal was fabulous. Shared a delicious Bread Pudding topped with homemade ice cream for dessert.
Always an enjoyable evening at Christmas! Sorry that the Lemaire’s dress code has eroded to street clothes, but we will continue to dress appropriatly so long as The Jefferson continues to “dress” that gorgeous tree and present their beautiful manger scene and gingerbread creations!
We had a delightful dining experience during our Christmas visit. I wasn't as pleased with all the food as previous visits. I thought the entree choices were a bit sparse so we chose appetizers instead. The kale soup was just so-so. However, I love dining here and will do so again.
The lamb shank was dry. I had asked that 2of the three bottles of wine we ordered be decanted, they were not. Kale Caesar? No
Just a poor experience for the money
We had a marvelous time and an outstanding meal. Our waitress, Laura, was just delightful! We also enjoyed the beautiful Christmas decorations. Without question, The Jefferson is our favorite place.
Holiday season, lot of people, food and service were both excellent
It was a very festive setting, very attentive service.
Food wise is was a mix: good salad, excellent pork but very greasy hamburger which left aftertaste.
Would return and recommend to others
My family comes every year and I have to say it is a magical experience. The place itself is beautiful, but the food is always unbelievable! I look forward to this the entire year! Thank you for the wonderful, memory making experience.
Elegant dining at its best! Breanne was a very gracious server and the food was fantastic. I had the butternut squash bisque and the filet mignon. Both were fabulous! Definitely our family’s new special occasion place.
The food was outstanding and the waitress was almost overly conscientious in making us happy.
