    This was our first time to the restaurant and celebration of our anniversary. We thoroughly enjoy the whole experience. The ambiance was what we needed; quiet and reserved. The service of the entire staff was perfect; the food was superb. I would equate this to going to a Ruth's Chris establishment. We are definitely planning to going back soon.

    We want to celebrate our son’s engagement. Food was incredible. Service was exceptional. They did not cook my steak or my husband’s steak correctly. So they corrected it immediately. And send us champagne at the end to toast our sin and fiancée’s good news. So all I’m all, still the best restaurant in town.

    The absolute best restaurant in all of Central Virginia, and as someone that has travelled quite a bit, one of the finest restaurants in the country. We were there last night to celebrate the engagement of our daughter and her husband to be. We had a beautiful table in the corner and service that was second to none. Several of us had some specific requests and allergies and the serving staff was so kind and patient to take all the details, and the chef and staff handled the requests perfectly. Fresh salads, a wonderful shrimp cocktail and my favorite of everything they do is the French Onion Soup. Probably one of the best I've had in my life. Deep, rich broth, the perfect melted cheese and bread inside. Just amazing. Dinners were fabulous. Two of our group had the three-course special with the salad, filet and dessert. They loved it. Cooked to their specifications, some wonderful garnish and a fabulous dessert. I convinced son-in-law to be (who is a steak lover) that the William & Henry ribeye steak was the right choice. He was thrilled with it. So tender from the dry and wet aging, cooked to perfection and beautifully served. We HIGHLY recommend this special piece of steak to anyone. Thank you again to W&H staff for making this such a special night. The surprise champagne toast you sent over was highly unexpected and such a delightful surprise. Well done!

    The music & ambiance was wonderful! Our service was good the food hit or miss. If you are a fan of escargot, don’t try it here Our tuna and steak entrees were good, but not great. It was a nice evening in a beautiful old hotel with a nice dinner And over priced wine choices.

    We were not allowed to park across the street from the Virginian. Parking was very difficult. Last time we came we could. What is the point of a parking garage if only overnight guests can use it? Definitely factors in when deciding whether we will walk quite a ways to come and dine in the future.

    Best steaks in Lynchburg and top 10 of all places I have had a steak globally. Recommend the Strip with Bacon-Fig Jam; all sides are great - but Brussel Sprouts are incredible. We ate here twice this week and specifically asked for Sadie to be our server the second visit - she is aces!

    We celebrated our anniversary- I made a reservation and listed we had our baby. However it appeared like they weren’t prepared for our reservation as there was no baby seat and we were seated along a bench and not a secluded booth. The server took awhile to take our order. However once that occurred all else fell into place. We will return.

    Etiquette: Server bringing food reached across a guest at the table In order to get my plate to my hands. He didn’t bother to walk around place the plate down on the table in front of the customer. The food was OK, nothing special
