    The food here is as terrific as the space. All 4 of our entrees were excellent, as was the dessert menu. It is our go-to place for a fine dining experience.

    We had a great water view but had to pay an extra $10.00 in advance with the reservation in order to guarantee it. Food and service was excellent. Ryan was very attentive. It was very nice being right by the window but you can see the water from where ever you sit as the building is surrounded by windows. Nice place.

    Bookbinder's is one of the best, if not The Best Restaurant, in Richmond! We celebrated my wife's birthday. We requested a table by a window in a quiet section, and we got exactly what we wanted. My wife had the surf and turf, and I ordered the special meal, which was rockfish with crabmeat morsels on top. Both were delicious. The dessert - New York Cheese Cake - wonderful! All in all a great evening! Fred Thistle

    Easily accommodated our late arrival when we called ahead with a delay. Our waiter was amazing. So great with recommendations and even replaced a cocktail when it wasn't as expected. Never disssopointed with Stella's.

    Great place for a quiet post-holiday lunch. Very nice people, good selection choice, will keep in mind for future gatherings.

Discover Virginia

Virginia is known for more than just delicious southern cooking; they have their own style! If you are a ham lover, look out for Virginia ham — also known as Smithfield ham. It is only legal to produce in one place in the world, Smithfield, Virginia. Virginian cuisine also includes a variety of BBQ that range from all vinegar to a vinegar-based sweetness. A hearty Brunswick stew is another mainstay of Virginia. Originally using an Appalachian flying squirrel, it now uses a variety of meats braised in this vegetable stew. Traditional Virginian apple cider and apple butter, made from Wineapples, is a real treat. Another delicacy is any seafood that is cooked with Old Bay, originally formulated with spices from a specific region of the state, the Chesapeake Bay.
