Outstanding food!! I ordered the scallops and my wife ordered the beef tenderloin. The scallops were sweet. The tenderloin was just that, very tender and tasted great. We order a couple drinks that were prompt. We ordered a desert to share, chocolate cream brûlée. It was so fresh and a welcomed end to a wonderful meal. If I had one complaint, I didn’t get some of the decor. Some of the artwork felt out of place. But in no way a reflection of the food and service. They were outstanding.
I loved loved it beautiful place ambiance was excellent I am so going again
For so fine a place in terms of food and ambiance, the quality of service was just good and definitely lacking in the level of professional and kind of poise and polish you might expect.
The food choices and preparation were top-notch. The service (Marc) was superb. We already made reservations to return again for dinner. Breakfast is awesome, too. This is a not-to-be-missed restaurant when you are in beautiful Richmond, VA.
Everything is so exceptional about this restaurant. Service, food etc. Theirs nothing bad to say about Lemaire. Love the restaurant and everything about it.
We liked Lemair! Our waiter was SO nice and fun and energetic. He really was the thing that turned Lemaire around for me. When we first walked in, the host looked rather glum and for some reason from the website and my expectations, I was thinking it would be a very chic restaurant, but rather it was quite old fashioned in its decor. I understand the hotel is historic and opulent but I expected modern touches in the restaurant to keep the old world elegance but modernize it with some interesting lighting, maybe a lot of chandeliers or the tables/chairs...but it seemed very dated to me. The food was wonderful!
Dinner and drinks were amazing. Such a beautiful restaurant. All of the staff were polite and friendly. Definitely recommend for any occasion.
This is an excellent restaurant. Three of us ate seafood and one ate a pasta dish. They were outstanding. The pea risotto is marvelous. Jared, our waiter, was great, too.
Lovely upmarket white tablecloth restaurant. Service friendly and superb. Meal was delicious
Our waitress was prompt, friendly, knowledgeable, shout out to Jackie. Food was beautifully prepared with fascinating taste combinations in the sauces, eg, a delicate green vichyssoise pool for my halibut. We tried to share a chocolate creme Brûlée, sooo good. Thanks, LeMaire
Lemaire continues its tradition for fine service and culinary excellence. I am never disappointed when I dine at The Jefferson.
Historic building with beautiful interior. The service is attentive but also sensitive, friendly, timely. Menu is limited but is finely tuned to deliver creative, super tasty yet refined dishes for most tastes. We try to go once a year and look forward to our meal for days in advance.
Food was great, amazing wine list!
It was an excellent dinner, as always. You can always count on a wonderful experience at this restaurant.
Dinner was lovely. Terrific glazed salmon and the filet was perfect. Jacque was so attentive and gracious, and her recommendation of the sponge cake for dessert was delightful. Can’t remember when we had such a really wonderful dining experience.
Beautiful hotel with a ton of history. Service and food were fantastic. A great place to celebrate a special occasion.
We went there for lunch and everything was wonderful!
Staff was very accommodating, as we arrived earlier that the scheduled time. Everything was top notch, from the check in process to the table service and the food. Our server was very knowledgeable and very attentive.
Pros: The salads were delicious, our servers were professional, the wines were reasonably priced, and the interior decor was beautiful.
Cons: I reserved "outdoor seating" through OpenTable because of my unvaccinated status. But, when we checked-in, the maitre'd said that there were no available seats outside and that the wait would be at least 45-minutes. She sat us in the conservatory and we were socially distanced from the other customers, but it was indoors and was not my optimal choice. This could reflect a management and training issue. I recommend removing the "outdoor seating" option on OpenTable so as not to give customers false expectations.
I ordered the tenderloin. The meat was cooked perfectly and seasoned well; however, everything on the plate looked like it had been left sitting under a heat lamp for a spell (e.g., the sauce and grits were dry).
The food was great, and the service so-so. We received the entrees an hour after sitting down. I have no idea why it took so long, since our server made no mention and offered no explanation.
Service, food, and outdoor seating was perfect for a night out.
The only downside was we were being attacked by flies. Outside is hard to control bugs.
Very accommodating and one of the best meals start to finish.
We loved everything about our dining experience- food, friendly staff, ambiance!!!!
We stayed @ Jeff hotel as 1/2 way point on a long drive. We had dinner & breakfast there. It was a great place to eat--nice & quiet with good food, great service & a great atmosphere. We strongly recommend Lemaire as a first class dining experience
Very enjoyable evening celebrating our 50th Wedding Anniversary. Staff were aware of our celebration and did an outstanding job making the evening extra special.
The best chief-prepared meal in Richmond. Elegant. Unique. Superb!
Excellent service, food, and experience..just what i’ve been looking for- much appreciated!
The restaurant was lovely, food was good but not excellent as I anticipated. Service was disappointing. We were never asked how our food was, did we need anything nor were our water glasses ever refilled. Perhaps I expect too much but I get that service from other restaurants and pay half of what we paid for this lunch.
Staff was great and food was delicious. I highly recommend the peanut soup. If I could, I would eat a gallon of it.
Daria our waitress was great! The food was excellent! And the food was exactly how we ordered it. We would definitely visit again!
Elegant setting for a romantic meal or business conversation. Quiet and private atmosphere with attentive service. Hotel’s unique and distinguished ambiance provide a memorable experience.
Quiet and intimate atmosphere where one is able to enjoy the evening meal with others. Here, the night is yours... Take your time, enjoy the service, enjoy each bite of food, enjoy the company of those you came to spend the evening.
I love the Jefferson. I love the employees, the service, the food, and just how clean it is.
Wonderful food ,service and setting for an anniversary dinner.
What a delightful way to get back to "normal" after the past turmoil.
Highly recommend for special occasions.
food was great---a lot of reservation confusion---open table please replace the points you took from my account in January
Our first real dinner out in 18 months and it was wonderful. The food was outstanding and the service was very good. The wine list is impressive and the ambience of the hotel is spectacular.
We would be happy to eat here again, and did (breakfast the next morning, equally wonderful).
The kitchen does a beautiful job and pulled of a few things (like deep-fried oysters) that can be tricky. I don't remember s single flaw in any dish.
great food and service---open table please replace the points you took from my account in January---great place to celebrate a special occasion
My husband and I try to come to Lemaire for all special occasions and have never had a bad experience. We celebrated getting married on Sunday, and our waitress Melanie was absolutely incredible. She was so kind, helpful, and let us talk her ear off. Our food was absolutely delicious, the cocktails came out so quickly, and everything was perfect. I cannot recommend Lemaire enough!
This was our first visit to The Jefferson. Our server was engaging and our meal was unique and flavorful. We look forward to visiting again very soon.
Small menu, the service was ok. At a place like this I wouldn't expect to have to ask for my water to be refilled or to box up my own food. Service was impersonal and it felt like we weren't paid as much attention as other guests because we were younger. Have had better experiences here before, but this most recent time was underwhelming.
From a warm greeting from the hostess, to the drink at the bar with the friendly and knowledgeable bar tender to our delicious dinner in the main dining room, it was a perfect way to celebrate an anniversary. Our table was even ready 15 min prior to our reservation and they texted me to let me know we could be seated early if we wished to or we could wait. We chose to go ahead and be seated and Michael took great care of us all night. He is friendly, knows the menu and gave great suggestions and was very attentive all night. Our menus had Happy Anniversary printed on them and our dessert plates had Happy Anniversary written in chocolate on them. The entire night was very well done and we had a lovely time.
