She Crab Soup
Blue crab, dry sherry, cream, and red bell pepper
12oz Prime Rib*
Our house special, slowly roasted prime rib served with vegetable du jour and a baked potato
Ordered the filet mignon medium, it came medium rare, and overly salty. Waiter came to take our appetizer way too early. Nobody came to replace the empty water bottle for the table. For the price of this place, food and service were terrible
Traveling from Virginia Beach to Charlottesville for a gateway weekend. Stopped at the Tobacco Company and so glad we did. In the 1980s, my father worked in Richmond and when I would visit, he would take me to the Tobacco Company. Historic, beautiful, great server (RYAN) and food was scrumptious! I highly recommend for a wonderful dinner.
We celebrated my nephew’s birthday with delicious food. His dessert was comped - unexpectedly. Wonderful restaurant with exceptional wait staff.
The hospitality at The Tobacco Company Restaurant was phenomenal from the moment Ashley and I stepped foot in the door to the moment we left. Wow. Christopher W. Dunn continues to do an incredible job managing over there and it was so awesome to hear Mark Ingraham and the Dance Candy crew perform while we ate dinner! We had our reservation on the third floor right above the stage and the music sounded amazing. Our servers Will and Greg Chubb never skipped a beat the entire time and we devoured the fried oysters, calamari, caesar salad, crab cakes (unreal), and butter cake! Thank you so much for an incredible evening. Great to see you, Jennifer Whitehead! We will be back!!! ❤️
This place is a Richmond treasure. Beautiful ambiance and amazing food.
Two issues for the 4 star rating: 1) The band was too loud . Even with us being seated on the second floor and the band being on the first floor . We will only go back when a band isn't playing . 2) My ribeye was cooked at the right temperature (medium rare) but I have never have had a ribeye with that much fat marble . I recognize that some (normally on the edges ) is needed for the flavor and juiciness.
Loved the menu. There were multiple things I could have ordered so will be back to try other items. We were visiting our son in Richmond and we visit often so will recommend and come back again. Loved the live music as well.
The server was amazing had a great 50th birthday
Wonderful for special occasion.
Over salted, undercooked food...except all the proteins, which were unseasoned and overcooked. Heavy cold sauces on everything! Nothing tasted fresh. It was the Special Easter menu. The sliced leg of lamb looked and tasted like cheap cold cut roast beef....too tough to even chew and grey. Gross!
The server took away completely full plates and didn't ask if there were any problems. Almost $200 after tip for 3 people to leave starving.

Again, please accept our sincerest apologies. Feel free to contact us with any other feedback you may have at firstname.lastname@example.org m.
A great Richmond landmark. Nice to see that they have kept the quality of food and decor even after the fire remodel. Service was a bit slow, but a delightful evening for us.
Delicious dinner. Great Service. Best restaurant in RVA.
Glad you could make it out on Easter. Thank you for the review!
This is our second time back since the fire. This time was much better. Service and food quality is back to what you would expect for an upscale dining experience.
The Filet Mignon was perfection along with the entire atmosphere and service. Great evening, highly recommend.
Thank you so much for the review Catina!
I specifically stated my reservation was for my husband's birthday, but the waitress never mentioned it nor did she ask if we were celebrating a special occasion. It would've been nice of her to have recognized my husband's birthday. Besides that, everything was wonderful!
Loved everything. The food was delicious. Highly recommend the butter cake dessert. The service was spot on. The overall vibe was terrific.
Hi Tina! We love our butter cake! Thank you for the kind words and 5-star review!
Still the coolest place in town. Professional wait staff and excellent food combine with the ambiance to make a wonderful night out.
Love TTC, but this time it was something of a let down. Drinks were ‘light’, She Crab soup was mediocre, Prime Rib - the reason I wanted to go there - was only so so. My wife’s filet and the Key Lime Pie were great.
Excellent food and service at the VA table and bar
Amazing restaurant, great food and even better service.
My husband got the prime rib. It was fair. Had better at Outback. Was surprised the restaurant didn't offer any Virginia wine by the glass, bottle only. I like to support local. Disappointing.
Wonderful experience. Took my girlfriend there for dinner
Amazing spot , loved the live music and the food was amazing
Will definitely be returning. Great 1st experience! Our server Cody was outstanding
Great food. Very good service. Would recommend for date night or larger gatherings.
Great experience! Excellent meal. Will be returning in the future!
Tobacco Company was a great choice for a recent birthday dinner. Walk around to explore the beautiful historic building while waiting for your food. The service was great and the food will keep you coming back in the future. Definitely a gem in downtown Richmond.
Everything was perfect! Thank you for a wonderful evening.
We’ve been here a few times and it never disappoints. Such a fun atmosphere with the different floors and the new Art Deco bar area. The she crab soup was amazing. All of our food was top notch and the service was great as well.
Very beautiful atmosphere the food was delicious and our server Josiah was very nice.
One of the best I’ve had Ina while
Outstanding service and great food. The crab cakes and filet mignonette were great! Great cocktails and live music!
Great dinner to celebrate my girlfriend’s birthday. Classy as always
Nice evening out when family visited. We enjoyed the live music in the background (not too loud or soft), ahnd excellent food!
The food was great, the jazz band was wonderful as well. Great place for a birthday, I put in the notes it was my wife's birthday in the reservation but nothing was mentioned about it. Other than that I was quite pleased and would return again.
Our waiter was superb. The food and decor were wonderful but he was truly the reason we had an excellent time. He was efficient, had the right pace and frequency of checking on the table, keeping drinks refilled and fulfilling any requests. I miscalculated on the tip and am going to make a point of returning just to give him a little extra for the excellent service.
Service was good. Food was delicious. She crab soup was a delight.
Booked a reservation here randomly and I don’t regret my decision. The crab cake was to die for and the ambiance was almost like a mafia movie. I will definitely be back!
Thanks for the 5-star review! We look forward to having you dine with us again in the future.
It was good
