The Tobacco Company Restaurant
Happy hour highly recommend
Great meal as always!
Great food in a great atmosphere.
Amazing atmosphere with service that is above and beyond. The food is great and this is my new go-to for a special night out.
Though we had requested a quiet table when we made reservations several weeks in advance, we were seated near two large groups; one of which was extremely loud and profane. Our host immediately apologized when he seated us. He was aware of our request but says this was the best he could do.
The food, as always, was wonderful. Our server was amazing and a joy with whom to talk.
The only downfall was the difficulty of conversation. It was not the restaurant’s fault, just unfortunate.
fortunately we were seated far from the noise in the bar on 1st floor. Also, would prefer less volume for music.
We went to the Tobacco Company for a date night/birthday celebration. We hadn’t been there since they reopened after the fire. Tobacco Company has always been good though we don’t go often. It’s usually saved for special occasions or out of town company since we live about 30 minutes from downtown Richmond. We were happy to see that it was still as unique and beautiful as always and there was a good amount of people there for mid week. Unfortunately our food arrived only Luke warm. The baked potato wasn’t even warm enough to melt the butter. And it was pretty expensive. Our waiter seemed a little overwhelmed so we’re guessing our food sat a while before it was served. Upon reflection we should have said something or sent it back but as I said they were busy and we didn’t want to cause a problem. We did receive a free dessert as a birthday gift - the bread pudding and it was delicious and hot! Our experience was unfortunate but I guess any place can have an off night. However we’re not in any hurry to return.
This was a birthday celebration for my daughter. My daughter's steak was over cooked when it arrived, so it was sent back. The second time it come it was almost raw. The third time it was ok but by then she got it to go since the rest of us had finished our meal and we waiting for her meal to arrive. The she crab soup was not good either. Very disappointing meal.
Fantastic vibe. Fun atmosphere. Great service. Had a small private room for our birthday dinner. We loved it. Absolutely plan to go back.
Over priced, sub standard service and deafening music. Had to ask 3 people about turning down music. Two steak dishes were brought out with no knives. Had to wait 25 min for glass of wine.
Amy husband and I went on a date and we wanted to try somewhere we wouldn’t normally go. Food was delicious and came out in a timely manner. We had our reservation at 530pm so it was a little before their actual dinner rush. Server was very attentive.
A wonderful experience for date night or special occasion!
We had a great time! What a fun place to take out of town guests for a wonderful impression of Richmond!
Perfect place for dinner before the show with my daughter. Bonus-my husband and I went on our first date at The Tobacco Company 29 years ago
Unable to get steak temperature correct (medium rare) after two attempts Waiter was awesome
Previously good experience,
Shrimp cocktail and crab stack were delicious
Probably be a while before we go back
One of the best dinners I’ve had in years. The chef is superb. The staff are professional and very friendly. It’s a bit difficult to carry on a casual conversation because of the noise level. Overall, The Tobacco Company makes for a great date place and is a definite must visit for a wonderful dinner experience.
A wonderful evening with excellent service, fabulous food, and beautiful ambience.
Fantastic. Food was great, excellent service, great looking place. Nothing else left to say.
Best prime rib in town. Solid service. Awesome atmosphere. Home run.
Great. Would highly recommend
Thank you for a wonderful evening ❤️
Celebrated a special birthday with dinner at Tobacco Company. The wait staff was awesome--completely attentive throughout dinner. The dinner was delicious and cooked perfectly! The atmosphere was pleasant and the noise level was somewhat quiet until the restaurant filled up. Still not too noisy even with the open foyer. Highly recommend Tobacco Company for dinner.
Out servers disappeared for a long time after we got outta food. We were done eating for probably 15 minutes waiting for our check and boxes but other than that it was a good experience.
Did not like the special very much that the server said was the “best special on the menu”. Not her fault though, just wish I got the prime rib instead.
Great food, and an incredible, old-school atmosphere. We drove down from the Washington, DC area and it was well worth the drive! We'll head back!
New Years Eve celebrations had The Tobacco Company Restaurant
Great service from our server. A little disappointed that Chesapeake Crab Balls we’re gone from appetizers.
Always love to eat at Tobacco Company and it’s become our New Years tradition with friends. This year making reservations with Open Table was a breeze and such a relief, as last year was a a bit more hectic to get in for NYE. The food was delicious and the better part of the evening. The service left more to be desired. While I realize the night was busy, that is no excuse in my book. Our server became more and more absent as the meal went on. We asked for two bottles of Prosecco to ring in the new year and were told ok, but about 5 minutes before 12:00 were told they were out. We were given the option of something else, made a quick decision to go with it and it was awful! It was also the table that had to bring up the idea to pay the price for what we wanted instead of them making the wrong right by doing so. The checks were brought out to the three couples at the table, not just a few mistakes but one couple had ALL the alcohol in there tab and nothing else!?! That’s not even an oversight but just negligence on his part. When someone asked my husband how dinner was and he responded honestly, the response was just “sorry”. Have had superb experiences here and just hope this won’t become the norm.
First visit since they reopened, and went on New Years Eve. The place was so beautifully decorated. The food and service by all staff were all top notch. Great place for fancy date night out. Would highly recommend!
This is one of my faves in RVA and I’ve had impeccable service and the best of meals but last night was a bit off. Will chalk it up to it being exceptionally busy due to NYE. Most all items were good but the whipped virtually no flavor and my date’s filet ordered medium/med rare came out medium well. Also, I had ordered two courses of wine. One to accompany our first course and another to accompany our main course. The first course arrived but no wine, and by the time it was sorted, we were done with our first course so cancelled the first course wine. I will certainly be back for the delicious crab stack and the silky she-crab soup and unmatched ambience but will likely avoid on holiday occasions.
I must say I celebrated the New Year. The ambiance and the band and the food was excellent. I have no complaints at all.I will be dining there again really soon.Keep up the great job.I was just telling a friend It's hard to find great ambiance and food.I give you guys a 10❤
