The bar makes a delightful French 75 and offers a "make-your own Manhattan" which is lovely. Definitely highly recommended!

So I must say that I am probably not giving an unbiased opinion as this was the evening my now husband proposed...

The waitstaff were very friendly and accommodating, presentations were nice. I was surprised however that other customers seemed under dressed for the venue. The bar setting is nice, food was good and excellent selection of drinks.

This restaurant is a bit overpriced but that's most likely due to the location as it's within the Jefferson.

The best restaurant in Richmond. The service was impeccable and the food was very good. Scallops were grilled to perfection ($30.00). Hamburger for my grandson was declared tasty ($18.00). The fried pickles were a fun appetizer for the four of us to share. The rhubarb dessert was delicious ($7.00). The room is very attractive as is the hotel lobby. Don't miss looking at it. The theme of the hotel seems to be alligators and there are many statues of them scattered around. The largest is at the entrance. This restaurant is not inexpensive but if you want a splurge go for it.

This restaurant is in the Jefferson, the best hotel in Richmond. The staff has expertise that will be sure to please you. The food is well prepared and tasty. Importantly, there is a lot of space between the tables to ensure intimacy in conversation. We really enjoyed our two breakfasts in this fine dining room!

There is no doubt with main courses at over $30 this is going to be relatively expensive. Portions are small, but well cooked. We thought some of the combinations were odd, or perhaps interesting and adventurous, depending on you point of view. poor coffee. cocktails too limited in choice. plenty of space between tables, attentive and ppleasant service, but for me the food was just not up to the ambitious price.
