    The ambience is fabulous! This restaurant is absolutely beautiful! Great service! Very good adult beverages. But the food was mediocre at best. The prime rib was lacking flavor, the green beans were mushy. The She crap soup was very, very good. Plenty of crab meat and very flavorful. The jambalaya pasta was pretty bad. It had chicken, andouille sausage and jumbo shrimp. The chicken was overcooked and dry cubes of breast meat. The sausage was overcooked as well. The shrimp was perfectly cooked. I’d probably go back and give them another try if I’m back in Richmond again.

    Rick, I am very sorry that you did not enjoy your meal here. We are working very hard to ensure that our food quality is up to the highest standard. It is evident on this occasion that we did not hit the mark. I would like to make a guest service recovery to make up for this poor visit. If and when you come back to Richmond, I would like for you to dine with my compliments. I will send you my email address privately and whenever you like you can let me know when you would like to dine and I will make the reservations personally. Best Regards, John B Papa Jr General Manager

    Service was impeccable, the ambiance was lovely. Such a beautiful building! The food was almost perfect, my filet was a tad overcooked, but everything else was just right.

    It was experience just walking in the door. What a very neat place. I am so happy this restaurant was recommended to us. Our server was amazing. After dinner we thought we would have a drink at the bar and our dessert. As soon as we got there they told us we couldn’t have dessert. If we stayed at our table we were getting it. Didn’t make a fuss but was disappointed. Go here it’s fantastic! Had stuffed mushrooms, crab soup, and we shared the King cut prime rib with extra sides. Drinks were amazing - Not Minto to be a mojito, Old Fashion, White Russian.

    We were celebrating my wife’s birthday With two of our grandchildren and ask for a private table, which we got along with birthday wishes from the staff. Our waiter, Ahmad took very good care of us in all aspects. We even got a candle on my wife’s dessert.

    Haven’t been since they’ve remodeled/rebuilt from fire a few years ago. It was exactly as I remembered. The decor, the ambience, excellent service & delicious food. This was a dinner before a show at the Altria, so we didn’t take time for appetizers & desserts..even held out on the cocktails. Dinner was served in a reasonable enough time that we didn’t have to rush through in order to get to the theater. Can wait to go back
