Great meal. Perfect ambience
Very good overall; suggest that waiter inform guests that medium rare for beef will actually be rare - enjoyed it though since it was a good cut of meat, but all three in my party agreed that it was the rarest medium rare they have experienced. Fried oysters very good; suggest going for the happy hour for better deals on food. Always a beautiful place to visit.
Anniversary- wonderful evening!
Great food and service. Quiet and upscale experience. If seated by a window, ask to have the a/c floor vents covered
Much better than expected. Food was very fresh and locally sourced. Not overly prepared. They really let the ingredients shine through.
Great bar. Excellent food and service. Impressive decor.
Great meal. Excellent server. AwlwYs a treat to enjoy fine dining in such a special place.
This was our second visit to Lemaire and we sat at the same table as had the same amazing waitress,Melanie, as we did 2 months ago. Melanie is a true asset to Lemaire - she is efficient, pleasant and well versed in her kraft. The food is delicious and beautifully presented. This visit my son had the steak, my husband the scallops and I had the saffron pasta. Dishes were all well prepared and delicious ! We also had breakfast at Lemaire and it was also delicious and beautifully presented with wonderful service! I recommend that anyone visiting Richmond pay a visit to The Jefferson - absorb the ambiance,the hospitality and the devotion to excellence of the staff !
As usual Lemaire provided the perfect venue for a family get together. The food was delicious, the atmosphere beautiful and the service impeccable.
good ambiance, great service
The meal was wonderful. The atmosphere was great. I was surprised about parking when I arrived. In the past, valet parking was free if you were eating at the restaurant. This time I was told parking was only free if you had a drink at the bar. I found that surprising.
Fabulous as always! A real Richmond gem! Don’t miss it!
It's nice to be reminded what a 5 Diamond rating really means. We had a lovely dinner, but there was a bit of a snafu with the appetizer round that we were graciously compensated for in a way that most high end restaurants have forgotten how to do. Cudos to the management and staff. This restaurant is a real class act that those of us that are raised correctly will notice and remember.
We always enjoy special-occasion dining at Lemaire because it always offers an excellent culinary experience and a wonderful atmosphere steeped in local Richmond history...
We felt well cared for by the waitress and other staff. The food was magnificent. The setting was elegant and comfortable.
We were told when we made the reservation that they were sold out so we could not get in until 7:45. We arrived st 7:15 just to see and there were like 4 tables taken. Dead! We got seated right away.
The service was the highlight of the evening. Salads were good but not stellar. The bread was blah but again not bad. The halibut was presented nicely but not a lot of flavor.
The Fluffanutter candy bar dessert was great .
Overall for a $160 meal could have had more unique flavors .
Lovely evening to celebrate our anniversary
Like my experience with this restaurant a decade ago, it was superb. I live out of town and had not kept up with reviews of Lemaire. Although there are many competitors for outstanding dining in Richmond, this one stayed at the top of my list. The menu offered interesting and varied choices, the staff was attentive to food allergies with a call the day before, and the service was outstanding. The server neither hovered but also didn't ignore, anticipating our needs. It was truly a memorable meal and I will look forward to returning whenever I'm in Richmond.
Lovely dinner for my birthday. The halibut was fresh and deliciously seasoned. Thank you
The food was delicious, and our waiter was awesome. It was our first time dining there, and we loved every single note and sip. It was a great experience, from waking into the hotel, to leaving the dining room and exploring the hotel lobby. Will definitely come back!!
Our waiter, Matt, was outstanding. However, the kitchen delayed our main course 20-25 minutes. Generously, to make up for that delay, was an offering of a free delicious dessert, which was appreciated.
Food was fantastic! We had chicken fried Chesapeake Bay oysters followed by beef tenderloins. Desert was a Vietnamese coffee creme brulee. Our waiter Nick was attentive and professional.
Outstanding in every way. An enjoyable, lovely dining experience.
We have always heard very good things about The Jefferson, so we had very high hopes and expectations for our dinner experience. All of those expectations were highly exceeded by our wonderful anniversary dinner we had Sunday night! All of the food was fantastic and our drinks were delicious.
The ambience is European elegance.
Great service, exceptional cuisine.
friendly and professional service in an elegant dining room. creative seasonal menu with fine use of local items.
The venue is beautiful! Unfortunately, the food quantity and quality does not match the price point charged. Each entree was served with odd combinations of inedible vegetables and grains, the salmon and scallops were slightly under done, and the tenderloin was not medium as requested. Kudos to the pastry chef as the desserts were top notch. Our meal was delayed due to a large event being held in the room next door, and we waited 45 minutes after ordering for our food. In the meantime, the assistant server, Andrew, brought us a Pimento Cheese platter. Jessica our head server was excellent, and we understand that she was not responsible for what was happening in the kitchen. Again the venue is wonderful, but the food does not match the hype.
As always, Lemaire provides the utmost dining experience in all aspects.
The food was amazing, as was the service. Located in the beautiful Jefferson Hotel. Worth a trip.
Always a great time. Bruce, our server, was wonderful too! Request him if you can.
Another outstanding dinner at Lemaire! Menu was incredible (always changes and does not disappoint). Taste was just wonderful! Well done.
Love Lemaire for the atmosphere. The duck breast appetizer special and the beef tenderloin were both excellent. The thumbprint cookies with rhubarb ice cream, which we split, was disappointing -- cookies too hard to cut and very dense/chewy, though the ice cream was delicious. Will definitely return!
Your restaurant was the perfect place to take my friend for her 50th! She noticed every detail was very surprised and pleased. Thank you.
Wonderful dinner. Food, wine and service were flawless.
The food and service were great but the elegant decor was the best.
Excellent service, loved loved loved the service
Food was well plated and tasted very good.
Service was not great. Sat us next to. Loud table when the dining room was empty. Food was very good
For my wife's birthday, she and I both thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Everything from the service to the meal exceeded our expectations. We will definitely return for another special occasion!
Lemaire has regained the class and wonderful taste of southern haute cuisine, with ambience and service to match.
Outstanding service exceptional food, a perfect experience we want to repeat.
