Lemaire is located in the historic Jefferson Hotel. My dining partner and I had an exquisitely prepared meal with excellent service in a beautiful, old-Richmond environment. It's hard to find food and service of that quality in an environment where you can have a quiet conversation. Although some customers were dressed in suits, most were dressed as we were in... More

We enjoyed a fabulous dinner here during our stay in The Jefferson hotel. We made reservations well in advance knowing that this is one of the best restaurants in Richmond. Bruce was our server and from the start to finish he made sure that our dining experience was flawless. We started with a cocktail and ordered the very fresh Manakitowne... More

Lemaire is still one of the best (if not the best) restaurants in the greater Richmond area. I have had the luxury to dine and some of the world's top restuarants and for any special occasion, Lemaire is my first choice!

The atmosphere and service is superb. The experience is one you'll want to repeat. My Husband and I were celebrating my birthday for dinner once. I've been there for brunch also. They have a fabulous Christmas brunch everyone will love.

Excellent restaurant with impeccable service in a very elegant surroundings. Food is good enough for "foodies" with a very good veriety. You can go for main course or smaller dishes and both will be delightful. The wine selection is very good as far as quality and on broad range of prices. Overall prices are very comparable with other restaurants of... More

The food is actually quite nice, but you show up to the front and the attendant tells you to seat yourself. The tables are dirty and when I politely (!) asked for them to be bussed the staff repeated my request to each other before someone cleaned the table(s) that were available but still dirty.

We enjoyed wine and appetizers in the bar area of the Jefferson Hotel. A very pleasant experience. Suggest a walk through the main level of this historic property.

Walking into the Jefferson is always a treat, but paired with Lemaire is beyond perfection. From the almond garlic soup, to the freshly made bread with sourgham butter to the swordfish and sea scallops, it was a treat for the senses. Richmond has so many new, great restaurants, but let's not forget Lemaire which is ALWAYS great. We appreciate the... More
