BEEN HERE MANY TIMES - SERVICE AND FOOD ALWAYS GOOD - ALL
ASSOCIATES VERY FRIENDLY. WILL RETURN
My wife and I enjoyed their Sunday Brunch as is typical at least once per month now. Good omelets and all the side fixings as well. We're looking forward to their upcoming Thanksgiving buffet again and also chowing down on their new Dec Christmas weekend menu as well. Been a steady patron for about 15 years now and it's always been a tr-eat.
So loud we were yelling just to have a conversation. Our server was great. Food was just meh.
Great food, nice service, beautiful evening views, but very loud. Not a place for a quiet night out.
Great food and service. Thanks for supporting veterans
Great, attentive waitstaff, food was good, view spectacular! I’ll def go again!
The food was absolutely amazing and you definitely got what you paid for. Beautiful location and they were able to seat us before our reservation cause we got there 20 mins early. Very kind staff. Definitely will be going back.
Amazing and first class experience. Just got engaged and it was so special . They did great . Thank you!
Great birthday lunch!
The food and service are superb! We truly enjoyed our meals, though the vegetarian crab cake can be improved further. The lobster was divine! We loved the friendly and warm service and the cool vibe of the place - not too fancy but not too casual either. We'll come back for sure and try their brunch special so we can also enjoy the amazing views!
We are so happy to hear the food and service were superb and that you enjoyed your meals! We can't wait to see you in soon for brunch!
The crab cake Benedict had good flavor but was cold. Service was just okay.
Dexter, thank you for taking the time to write a review. We're sorry to hear that you were disappointed in the temperature of your Crab Cake Benedict even though all the flavor was good. We appreciate your feedback and learning where we can improve.
Very hard to have a conversation due to noise level. Food is fine but you pay for the view which is excellent.
No expresso machine!!!
Steve, Thank you for taking the time to review us. We are so sorry to hear that you were disappointed in the noise level in the restaurant. We appreciate your feedback and learning where we can improve. We are so happy that the food and view were to your liking!
Overall good place but Food wasn’t hot enough. Some guests complain that it wasn’t filling either. I probably would not be coming back
Thank you for taking the time to review us. We are so sorry to hear that you were disappointed in the temperature and portion size of your meal. We appreciate your feedback and learning where we can improve. We hope to see you back in the future.
Enjoyable evening. Our out of state guest were most impressed with the ambiance and food.
Only slight complaint was no pepper on the table so had to request pepper and lemon for our mussels..
Great seating options, tasty menu and appetizers. Wait staff did not seem particularly well-trained but still was attentive and friendly. Great for our business meeting and we'll be returning again next year. Thank you!
Our waiter Rowan was very attentive, food was presented well and delicious, and a wonderful view of the city. Enjoyed our anniversary evening.
I've liked the Boathouse in the past, but was less impressed this time. I had out of town guests and specifically asked for a table/booth by a window for the view; they had nothing available and we sat in the middle of the room. Food was good but not quite what I remember. Overall not sure if i'd recommend this again. Friends who live near there also agree it's gone down a bit in quality. Hope this helps - it's a beautiful location!
Wonderful dinner! Amazing sunset view! Perfect place to treat our employees to a special dinner out!
Everything was good however except for the background piped in music which was blaring. Not appropriate for a fine dining venue.
Thanks for taking the time to write a review. We're sorry to hear that you were disappointed in the music even though food and service were good. We appreciate your feedback and learning where we can improve.
Enjoyable place to have an evening dinner out on the back deck.
This is the third time I've been to a boathouse in 3 months. This was our wedding day dinner and the server didn't even acknowledge it and the hostess seated us 30 minutes later than our appointment. I got the scallops and again for the third time it was like crunching on the sand that the scallops had been sitting in. The risotto that the scallops sit on was unbearably cold upon the first minute of eating them. The fries we were served were also cold. And speaking of cold , the sun had gone down and the restaurant still refused to close their open doors with a breeze coming in. We had to ask them to close it. Not a great experience and will stop coming here for anniversaries birthdays and special events just to eat and dine in mediocre environments. Will spend high charged money elsewhere in Richmond. It's not worth the price you pay anymore.
Took my girls to lunch for my sisters birthday, it was amazing! They had never been and had an amazing time and the service was great! We will be back.
Great restaurant week menu, beautiful night and view from outside patio
Food and service was outstanding as always. Only drawback was noise level. We forgot how noisy it is on Friday night. Music was way way to high, but it was cut back to a reasonable level. Even then you could only converse with the person next to you and not other people at your table. This was at 6:30 seating. when several large parties that we were seated in the middle of left, the rest of the evening was wonderful.
Thomas our waiter was attentive and calm for a busy night!! My Cosmopolitan was awesome. Thomas asked the bartender for the recipe and shared it with me.
Great experience. Zach did an outstanding job.
Food and service was great. Unfortunately a little too noisy/loud in the restaurant. Our visit in October didn’t allow us to sit outside which would’ve been better with very nice views of James River. Great choice for summer!
It was our anniversary. Food and service was great
Thanks for having our group (4) visit, a first for all of us, and several were guests in town!
Great setting and location, well appointed, and reservations late afternoon through sunset good time to visit. Service was outstanding, menu had great selections, and meals were good, although a fish dish selected a bit dry. Several appetizers selected were outstanding.!
Would certainly recommend to others, and will be back!
Enjoyed my husband’s birthday dinner here with dear friends. Thank you Boathouse for giving us a wonderful table by the glass windows where it was quiet, romantic and beautiful sunset. Highly recommend. Service, food and atmosphere were fabulous. Thank you for making my husbands birthday/ new job celebration SO special. We will be returning.
What a beautiful setting and delicious food! The baked oyster trio was to die for! Excellent service! Highly recommend!
The noise level was so high we couldn’t carry on a conversation and hear each other. It was mentioned to our waitress and she explained there was a large party at a table behind us. Maybe they should have been placed where they wouldn’t interrupt others around them.
This was a very special occasion for our family which had been communicated while making reservations, which had the wrong day,
The food was excellent! Absolutely excellent! Just wish my head wasn’t ringing when I left.
Wonderful Place, Great Atmosphere, Beautiful View the list goes on and on!! The Service was Fantastic, and the food was even better!! I would recommend them over and over!!
The food was amazing and the service was great we waited no time to be seated and after our order was taken by the time I was able to choose a wine the food was already on our table I definitely would recommend this place to anyone and I look forward to coming back.
Lovely brunch. Noisy inside so we moved outside and it was perfect
Great food and service. A little noisy. Not very romantic.
Wait staff was attentive but not invasive. Atmosphere was perfect for our anniversary dinner- we had a table on the balcony and watched the sun set over the James River! Food was excellent as well.
Our waiter, Zack was great!
Very disappointed, the experience was not one at all. The food was bland and the service didn’t match the $300 ticket price. The waiter handed hot plates to my family members hands and some of the food was spoiled. The view is beautiful and that is about it. Definitely not coming back and I do plan on reaching out to let them
Know how my experience went.
