Great experience. Would love to dine there in the future.
Great evening, the food was excellent, and really enjoyed the music.
The food was amazing! Our waiter was very nice and funny. The only complaint is that the music over the speakers were a little to loud. Also, to help with the ambiance, it would've been nice to have music that was more era appropriate to accompany the restaurant history. (maybe a little 20s music)
As always I had a wonderful experience. We had reservations for 7:45 but needed up getting there around 7:15. So we were asked to hang out at the bar area where we could order drinks and appetizers until out table was ready. The down stairs bar area is really nice and had a live band. Our table was ready at 7:30.
I ordered my usual, ribeye w/ fingerling potatoes and seasons cauliflower rice. It was great. I orders the bread pudding for dessert. It was good and savory. I could’ve done without the raisins but they were easy to spot and pick out. The serving size was huge. It took me three days to eat. :-)
We loved it! Great place with plenty of history there! Took a ride in the old elevator and heard amazing music ! Our steaks were perfect and the service was excellent ! Ask for Terrance... he was our awesome server! Thank you!🙏
Wonderful place- excellent service. Food is the best
Excellent steak and atmosphere. There was live music the night that we went and it was surprisingly good.
Our server on the third level was great. She was super sweet and accommodating. Great server!! The food was overall very good. Steaks and crab cakes were awesome. Creamed spinach and she crab soup was also great. Oyster appetizer was dry and not great. The cauliflower rice served with the crab cakes was over seasoned and sort of had a “stuffing” like flavor which seemed ill matched. Butter cake was great! Key lime pie needed a bit more zing from lime juice and zest.
Plenty of food, nice portions. Yummy food.
The service and ambiance were incredible! We really enjoyed our celebration with the kindness of the staff, the cozy ambiance, and upbeat jazz music. A night of splurging for sure, but the experience was worth it.
We had a delightful Valentine’s Evening dinner. The prime rib and au jus was exceptional, as was the loaded baked potato and vegetables. The vegetable lasagna was delightful as well. Always have loved the peaceful ambiance of this place. It was refreshing to hear the live jazz, as well. Thank you all!
This is a true hidden gem. The inside is absolutely beautiful
Staff was amazing. Food was so good. Perfect place to have a date night or just a nice dinner out in general.
Our experience for Valentine’s day was amazing! I couldn’t have asked for a better evening!
So nice to get out during covid time and enjoy a special holiday and where else better than Tobacco Company. They are the best!!
So beautiful, food and drinks are delicious and the live music makes it such a lovely place to be!
Excellent service and food, there was a trio playing music which made fora great night.
Beautiful building. Great service. Excellent food.
Yum! 5 girlfriends met to celebrate Galentine's Day. Had one of their private rooms on the 3rd floor which was perfect. Thank you!
Great restaurant! The atmosphere is amazing with the live music and rustic feel. The food and service are great.
Just wish we could received a bigger bottle of water
I planned a small surprise dinner for my husband. I spoke with one of the staff members Rebecca days prior. She was very helpful with making this a very special event. I dropped off the gifts and the balloons with her earlier in the day and she had them waiting at our table later that night. I had the ribeye, potato fingerlings and the most flavorful cauliflower rice. I definitely wasn’t expecting the rice to be so enjoyable. We had a great night. From 7:30 until almost closing. This is my new favorite restaurant.
It was good, the service was excellent! I wish there was more food for the appetizer for how much they were but the food was very good!
Fantastic all around, great food and service. Easy to schedule reservations.
Loved this place! Will was an excellent server too! :)
This restaurant is classic Richmond and offers good food in a great space. The Tobacco Company Restaurant is the perfect place for a special event, celebration, or date night.
Thank you for review. We appreciate it! Hope to have you by again to dine with us sometime!
Don’t pass on this Resteraunt. It’s worth the visit. You won’t be disappointed.
Great ambiance, superior service, and great food! The filet was perfectly tender with just the right seasoning. Nothing much else to say! We loved our dinner together!
We can’t thank you enough for the kind words- your review means a lot to us. Thank you!
A fantastic experience as always.
I would have appreciated valet parking.
But with COVID...
Thank you, Scott! Hopefully we can bring valet parking back someday. Take care out there.
Will was amazing!
Thank you! I will pass this on to him!
Our party of four went to The Tobacco Company to celebrate my best friend’s birthday. The service and food were both amazing. We were seated in one of the small “rooms,” and it was cozy and intimate—perfect for our small group. We could hear the live music on the first floor, but it wasn’t loud at all. Our waiter(s) were pleasant and attentive, the portions were perfect and the food was excellent. I would definitely go back.
That's so wonderful to hear. Thank you for dining with us and for the review. We hope to have you again!
Great food and service. Would highly recommend.
Thank you for the kind words and review!
Good food but have had better for less money. The service was excellent but every song the band sang sounded alike so that was like a background noise on repeat.
Thank you for your feedback. Sorry to hear your experience was not as perfect as we would all hope. We'd love to have you back in some time to make up for it, perhaps on a night with a different band? Thanks again for your review, your words mean a lot!
The separate dining suites are a major plus during the pandemic!
Thank you for dining with us and for the review. Great input, we agree. Hope to have you again sometime! Take care out there.
I was so glad they reopened, last time I was in town the were closed because of the fire, this restaurant is a landmark for Richmond. Every thing was as I remembered and it really impressed my date who had never been to Richmond. Thank you for reopening I always look forward to coming here when Im in Richmond!
Thank you, Riff. Glad to hear you had a good time dining with us. Hope to have you again sometime!
Love the ambiance, feeling nostalgic and it was well kept. Food was just ok , the server was superb. Overall it was a wonderful night - definitely will go back!
Thank you for the review! We look forward to have you dine with us again.
Lovely historic building, nice ambiance, good food, good price and a sweet little 3 piece jazz band!
Love the atmosphere! Our meal was delicious and we didn't have to wait long. However, our cocktails came up a bit slow. Our waitress was delightful. Overall, a wonderful experience.
Thank you, Sue! Hope to have you dine with us again in the future.
The restaurant is beautiful. Highly recommend. If you want privacy ask for an “office” table. Live music was great... atmosphere was beautiful! Food and service were very good.
Thank you! Hope to have you dine with us again sometime!
Thank you for such a wonderful experience. We actually got married here on Saturday. The ambiance was wonderful and every person we encountered was friendly and helpful. Thank you for an unforgettable wedding day!
Congrats and best wishes! Thank you so much for spending such a special day with us and for the kind review.
