The place was wonderful. The interior looked amazing. I ordered lamb and it was totally worth it, the meat practically fell of the bond it was perfectly cooked.
Excellent food, impeccable service, very lovely atmosphere. I have enjoyed the place for many years and would recommend it for all or no special occasions. While it is not inexpensive (seems to get more expensive over time) but it is worth it.
Fantastic fine dining experience. Craft appetizers and classic entrees that are simply cooked well with great flavor.
Lemaire offered a truly exquisite experience that we'll remember for a very long time. The night was truly special in every detail. Our waiter, Matt, was the real deal and offered a league of service I wouldn't have guessed was possible. Ambiance was cozy. Food was bursting with complex flavor tones from the appetizer to dessert. Finally, to top the evening off, a leisurely stroll inside the Jefferson was the perfect ending.
Thank you Matt and team at Lemare!
great atmosphere great stay great place for fine dining.
Very fine restaurant, comfortable, quiet and elegant in a standard way. The menu is rather standard but has some
good touches, such as very good deserts. Truly interesting wine list for European items, American less so. Very good pace: every thing arrives just when it should. We had exceptional service and a very fine evening. There is also an active bar.
Great staff & great food! Lemaire made our anniversary special!
Everything was fantastic about Lamaire--the service, food and ambiance were outstanding. The only issue we had was that the main floor lounge was not open for pre-dinner cocktails--other than that I highly recommend this restaurant.
Wonderful as always. This is my favorite restaurant. I love their happy hours and dinners on special occasions. I bring all my out-of-town guest here.
We are in Richmond for three months, so I took my wife to Lemaire for Valentine’s. The hotel is beautiful, but dinner was delicious and the service was terrific. It was a night out.
We celebrated my wife's birthday and Valentine's Day. We have been many times at the Lemaire and always found it excellent, but this time it exceeded all our expectations far beyond anything we have experienced before.
Thank you to the staff for making it our most memorable visit ever.
Celebrating our Third anniversary with my wife at the Jefferson tonight for the first time and it was fenomenal. Our waitress Carissa was excellent and Shawn was an expert with wine. We had the best dinner we could of asked for. We’ll definitely dine in for a second, third and on.
Wonderful food, great historical location, and the service was impeccable. Our waitress was not only unobtrusive, but friendly, and extremely knowledgeable about the menu. We found her outstanding. She made our 34th anniversary dinner memorable. Unfortunately, I can't remember her name due to "senioritis" , but she home schools her two children. She deserved every bit of the large tip we left, if not substantially more than that. This was our first meal at Lemaire, and will not be the last. The venue and staff made this a special night.
There is no wonder that this is the #1 restaurant in Richmond. Now, of course, that varies dep0ending on the number of reviews that come in but trust me... this is THE #1 regardless. Food, service, atmosphere. Oh yeah! This is fine dining in a glorious hotel. The entrees are superb as is everything else HOWEVER....there is any doubt about picking an appetizer.... the chicken fried oysters... OH YEAH!!!
My friend was in from out of town and had heard about the Jefferson. I had only been at the Jefferson for afternoon tea (amazing!) and brunch (also amazing!) The high points of dinner were lovely service and very attentive staff, beautiful quiet dining room, no pressure to leave. The so-so points were that the food was - I would say - middle of the road. It certainly wasn't bad, but we both got tenderloin, and it just wasn't... special. It was prepared as we had ordered it, but for 30+ dollars I expect maybe a little more than grilled tenderloin, a sauce on the side that really did not seem to fit the meat, and a portion of potatoes and grilled broccoli. Next time I might try something more interesting on the menu, maybe it's just the tenderloin is a basic dish. I will definitely go back but will probably try something else the next time.
We decided to try this restaurant for our anniversary dinner. The hotel is beautiful and has a classic grand feeling, but that was the only reason the visit was worth it. Lemaire restaurant was overpriced and the atmosphere was lacking ambiance and warmth. The dinner menu presentation was nice, as it had our years of marriage printed on it, but the menu itself was boring and straightforward. No special dishes you would expect to see in a high priced restaurant. We were very disappointed with the menu choices. The service was good.
Great staff, knowledgeable servers and a well rounded menu made for a relaxing and enjoyable meal. I would return.
It was an amazing evening! The food was great, the setting was gorgeous, and our waiter was the best! I highly recommend the garlic almond soup, I usually hate almonds but this was amazing and hit the spot!
The food and service are unbelievable. The cocktails are okay but the wine and champagne list are out of this out-of-this-world. My partner made captain and they made her feel very special from the personalized menus to a marzipan airplane on her dessert plate.
Great food and great service. A bit on the pricier side but well worth it.
