While this may be at the higher end of the price range, there is no question that Bookbinder's is well worth it all. Excellent and nuanced service, an elegant ambience, a diverse wine list, and food that is quite memorable. We went there for my son's birthday, and he nominated his food as "one of the top 5 steaks I've ever had"- and he is tough to please. I think we' have started an annual tradition for him, and one of many future visits with the family. More

We took my 95 year-old father in law for lunch at TJ's during a day trip to Richmond this week and it was absolutely wonderful. Of course the beautiful setting of the old Jefferson Hotel is magnificent but the service, atmosphere and food were all top grade. Dad has mobility issues and is hard of hearing, and the staff was very accommodating and kind. Food was fantastic. He loved the peanut soup and our sandwiches were delicious. We had not been to TJ's for a few years and it was really nice to see that they still offer a great place for a very pleasant lunch in a truly special setting. More

So, what is not to love about Rockets Landing Boathouse....sitting outside on the RIVA and partaking in those wonderful 1/2 carafe brunch cocktails! Fabulous. I would stay away from the make your own omelet and opt for anything seafood. The Calamari here is fresh, cooked right and the aoli accompanying it is on point (and I try calamari and mussels everywhere). The green goddess oysters so yum, and the mussels also a big win. IF you must the hamburger is good quality...been a minute sine I had last visited and I can say I was pleased. More

We tried out Aloi for the first time for our anniversary dinner and it was a lovely experience from start to finish. Our server was wonderful and did a great job the whole night with recommendations, the right level of conversation, and overall service. The food came out quickly and in the appropriate order based on the dish. The food itself was great - very flavorful, well cooked, and distinctly different dishes from one another. We had the cauliflower, mussels, bone marrow beignets, and the special burger they offered that night. Everything was genuinely delicious and I would order each of them again - was hands down some of the tastiest food we've had in Richmond. They also gave us glasses of bubbles for our anniversary which was just the icing on the cake. Great experience all around and we look forward to visiting again. More

Was disappointed that we saw a smoked bourbon being prepared at a table but ours wasn’t. Waitress said that it’s only done at the bar but we saw differently. Waitress hopefully was just having an off day because she was not engaging or attentive. Had some interaction with other wait staff who appeared to be delightful. Overall, definitely worth a visit! Great food and drinks with a cool atmosphere. More

I am always telling people how good this restaurant is. As always our meal was outstanding. The only negative to Fleming's is that I end up eating to much. The French Onion soup is fantastic. I know that a wedge salad is not a big deal but the dressing was perfect and they put a couple of slices of bacon with it. I was surprised by how good the crab cakes were because I don't generally order crabcakes when dining out. Service as usual was phenomenal. My favorite in Richmond. More

Customer favorites like the waterzooi have been brought back, and the overall feel of the menu is very classy. We're delighted not only that the menu has been restored to greatness, but also that the restaurant clearly listened to its customers' feedback. On top of that, the dishes we got were perhaps the best we've ever had from there. Max's is on its A game once again, and we can't wait to go back. More

My sister and I went to Les Crepes at 7 pm on a Friday evening. We were puzzled by the fact that there were no other dine-in customers for the duration of our meal. It is a nice restaurant with beautiful decor and a lovely ambiance, so I'm not sure why there weren't other patrons on a Friday evening. Perhaps people just don't eat crepes for dinner... That being said, the food was delicious and very reasonably priced! We both ordered a savory crepe and we shared a sweet crepe, and all three were generous in portion-size and very yummy! I will definitely be coming back, perhaps for breakfast or lunch to see if there is a larger crowd at that time. More

We went for Valentine's celebration. We were seated on time and received immediate service. The host was very courteous and helpful with answering our questions about the menu. The meal was delicious from appetizer to entrees to dessert. The food came out in a timely fashion, hot and plentiful. One could tell this is authentic Indian food done exceptionally well with recipes perfected over the years. This place will become a go to place for us. I have already recommended it to two friends. There was plenty of room in our seating for quiet conversation. I look forward to returning again soon for another excellent meal. More

The food was delicious. Service was very good as well. I did note that ‘Indian spicy’ was not very spicy at all but this was my only time here so far so can’t say if it was a fluke or not. Will definitely be going back. More

While this may be at the higher end of the price range, there is no question that Bookbinder's is well worth it all. Excellent and nuanced service, an elegant ambience, a diverse wine list, and food that is quite memorable. We went there for my son's birthday, and he nominated his food as "one of the top 5 steaks I've ever had"- and he is tough to please. I think we' have started an annual tradition for him, and one of many future visits with the family. More

We loved the re-imagining of one of our favorite RVA standbys. The Stables has cocktails that are interesting and delicious. The small plate offerings all sounded great, though we focused on the main courses. Spring trout was well prepared, and the cioppino was balanced and flavorful. Services was attentive and friendly, decor was minimal and tasteful. More

Discover Richmond

The city of Richmond is located in one of the original 13 colonies, so it isn’t surprising that it is a quintessential American city. It is here that you will find several different types of food that include the typical American fare. For instance, you can indulge in a meal of lasagna and mozzarella salad in this town. If you would like to be more traditional, you can also find typical Southern cuisine here. Don’t be surprised to see Chinese and Japanese options because they exist in Richmond too! Try crab from Chesapeake Bay and the hearty Brunswick stew that's so popular in the region. With plenty of museums and historical sites to visit, your trip to Richmond, Virginia, will be flavorful in more ways than one.
