We had dinner here last weekend, and enjoyed spending some time in the hotel lobby, stairway, and gift shop even before we got to the restaurant. Even though it was filmed in Atlanta, the Jefferson Hotel stairway was one of the inspirations for Gone With The Wind. The wine list is excellent, and we appreciated the special list of low... More

I was in town for business and thanks to trip advisor found this gem in the heart of Richmond and it would definitely rank among the greatest culinary adventures of my life. I've never had better service or food anywhere else coast to coast and the architecture is worth a visit all by itself.

It was an anniversary evening & we live in Richmond. Martinis and lemon drops at the bar served by a charming lady bartender set the tone. Was thinking of going down the street for dinner but got a pretty table at the window and ordered. Dinners were delicious and wait staff attentive. It could not have been a prettier evening!

Stayed at The Jefferson and dined at Lemaire for our 50th anniversary. A memorable evening with excellent food, wonderful ambience and service! We had the duck breasts and scallops. Perfectly prepared and presented! Highly recommended!

Food was very good although portions were small. The Jefferson Hotel is one of the most impressive hotels in the United States.

Enjoyed a special dinner the day after Christmas with friends. Amazing decorations at an amazing hotel, but the restaurant also amazes. Superb service, great cocktails and everyone's meal was delicious. You can always count on Lemaire.

Great location and nice settibg... but, in Richmond there are many amazing restaurants and LeMar does not compete well. I am not a fan as a local.

Easily the best meal I had all year. We have visited Richmond Magazine's top 10 restaurant picks for 2016, Lemaire was at the top and they were right. My steak was excellent, the service perfect, everything was delicious. You can't go wrong with this Richmond landmark.

We enjoyed my husband's birthday dinner in the warm setting of the Lemaire Restaurant. The cuisine is local, farm to table with the wait staff well versed in the dishes offered. They had a "special" menu for my husband and later decorated his dessert plate with Happy Birthday, very nice touches. The food and wine were excellent.

Thank Judy W
