Service was great, but we were seated in the middle of the floor at a four person table for two. I highly recommend that change. Food was okay. A lot has changed over the years from my first few times of going.
Great service, music and food!
The dining experience was pleasant. We enjoyed the night. The food was tasty but the steaks we asked for rare and medium rare. Both came out the same medium. Overall it was an average experience.
Great restaurant! I went 20 years ago when I was in college and it is still beautiful with amazing food.
I was visiting Richmond for the evening, just passing through. I wanted to take my partner out on a date. There was a live band playing. I love live music, so I decided this would be the spot. We were seated on the third floor of the restaurant. I loved the ambiance. The lighting was dim but bright enough to indulge in conversation and see other guests faces across the room. Thomas, our server, was amazing. After we ate, we decided to go downstairs by the bar to enjoy the band a bit closer. Overall it was a delightful dining experience
Had an excellent experience here. Started with nice cocktails at the bar. Interior of building is unique and attractive. Upscale yet comfortable. It was crowded and noisier than we usually like, but the live music was very good. Everyone in the party enjoyed their dinners, and the waiter was friendly, professional and attentive. It was wonderful!
Food and service was excellent!
An absolutely awesome restaurant. Low lighting, fast service, and amazing decor. Staff were pleasant and professional. The food was delicious and beautifully prepared and displayed on the plate. I definitely recommend this spot if you’re looking for a special occasion/date/anniversary restaurant. 10/10 recommend!
The eclectic art deco style and soft lighting set the tone for an upscale dining experience. The service was what you would expect for the price point... efficient and accurate, but not outstanding. The food was served hot and the presentations were pleasing, but the quality did not justify the price point. I ordered the special- seafood crepes (crab; shrimp; salmon) with a crab-Gouda cream sauce. The crepes contained 99% salmon which had a strong flavor, the sauce a few shreds of crab with little Gouda flavor. The Company Chicken was flavorful and the crab cakes high quality. Our desserts were mediocre. The key lime pie was enormous, but the crust tasted freezer-burned. The "cake for two" required more than the half-scoop of ice cream we received to make it shareable. Overall, the atmosphere was the only outstanding element. Definitely a place to bring out of town guests to experience Richmond's history and charm.
The evening and experience was amazing! I recommend for anyone to go here and check the place out. Service was on point and five star! To management, something was off about the food. The food was excellent, however, at $100+ a person to dine here, my taste buds were not tantalized. I recommend improvement on the food, everything else is perfect.
First time at the tobacco company. Very nice and I would definitely visit again.
Great decor, food and service. The she crab soup and crab cakes were delicious.
Very nice place to eat. Love the history of the building.
Great place to celebrate! My wife and I celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary with a great dinner!
I’ve wanted to take my wife to this place for years. Since we live in Florida it remained on our list of must do’s until yesterday. We celebrated her milestone birthday joined by our son and his girlfriend. It was an awesome experience as I expected. She enjoyed it very much.
Unique setting. Excellent food and service.
Our first anniversary dinner was absolutely amazing. Our server, Beckah, had great suggestions for not only food but drink as well. The ambiance is captivating, and so were the dishes. Will definitely be coming back every year for sure.
Good with great ambience. Staff was courteous and efficient. My wife had the pork loin and I the crab cakes. Both were fantastic. Only disappointment (for a northerner) was lack of cappuccino to top it off.
Great atmosphere great food great service. The multi-story areas are neat and the server was incredible prompt without being overbearing. The food was excellent albeit slightly overpriced.
Great food, beautiful place to eat. Price is a little high, but the food was worth it.
Great place!!! Great atmosphere!!! The live band helped with the wait for food but we waited about an hour for food only down fall
Great ambiance, terrific selections from appetizers to salads and main courses. Good drink list and entertainment as well.
We had a delicious meal here last night while visiting our son who is a student at the University of Richmond. We had the coconut shrimp, she crab soup, house salad, strip steak and filet mignon. The food and service were excellent. There was even a live band that added to the festive atmosphere. It was a great choice for a special night out.
Great experience - VCU family weekend and two kids’ birthday celebrations. Fantastic food, great private dining area. Fantastic live music downstairs. Classy feel. It was exceptional all around!
The ambiance is fun and the food is top-notch! Fine-dining caliber but not pretentious: in short, as close to perfect as a restaurant gets.
We were in Richmond for family weekend at U of R and having been to the Tobacco Company previously, wanted to take our granddaughter. The service, food and friendly staff made it a great visit!
Good meal and great service.
I came here with my husband for a little date night. It was a Saturday night around 830. The live band was amazing. The ambiance was perfect. Upscale, sexy, lively. I love the layout. We started at the bar while while we waiting for our table. When it was time for our reservation we went to the second floor. We had great service and the food was very good as well. I am from NY and my husband is from DC. We have not been impressed with the dining experiences in Richmond at all for the 2 years we’ve been here, however this place is a gem. We will definitely return.
Service and food was excellent. The ambiance was nice as there was a jazz band playing. I will definitely be back.
Enjoyed a wonderful evening celebrating my mother’s birthday. The service was excellent, the food was delicious, and the atmosphere was lovely. Enjoyed the band that was playing, so that enhanced the ambiance. Had been too many years since we had dined here, and it definitely won’t be that long before we go back!
Ribeye was average. Side of creamed spinach marginal. Prime rib was undercooked and side of green beans was poor. Chicken dish was good. Disappointing given expectations for this place. Doesn’t come close to some of the other steak places in town. Bar atmosphere and restaurant ambiance is really nice.
The food was well prepared and the service was beyond amazing.
Service was excellent, food was okay. Drinks were great. The ambiance was also really nice, not sure if I’d come back for the food though.
Our group of six was seated in a private little room which was great for sharing conversation. Our waiter was highly attentive and the food was cooked perfectly.
Outstanding dining experience!!
Excellent seafood and steaks.
Very professional, friendly service.
Atmosphere a wonderful memory!
The live music was soooo good the ambiance was very sexy and I had a wonderful night the pecan pie was in perfect proportions
My new favorite restaurant! Absolutely loved the menu options. I ordered a glass of red wine and the espresso martini. We got the calamari for an appetizer and I got the crab soup. I ordered the chicken for my entree and shared the butter cake for dessert. Everything was outstanding! The server was excellent and the live music was so fun! Thank you!
Beautiful atmosphere, delicious food and the waitstaff was attentive. We will definitely be coming here again when in Richmond.
Great experience. Very nice building. Service was outstanding. Food was excellent.
Great bar, cocktails, and live music on main floor.
Restaurant seating on second and third floor - food average but ambience is excellent! Old, historical building in downtown and within walking distance to other bars and restaurants.
