We just had our New Years dinner at Lemoore. What a great experience! The food was full of flavor and freshness! The service was impeccable! We plan on making reservations for next New Years Eve. We will certainly ask for our server, Melanie She was perfect!

Lemaire may be the last bastion of Richmond's past: unadventurous, staid, predictable. New restaurants abound in Richmond with inspired chefs, menus, and contemporary decor, relegating Lemaire to be the safe choice to take grandparents. The menu, while executed well, is like a trip back to the 80's -- nothing to challenge the status quo. Sad to see a beautiful hotel... More

We went for a birthday dinner. The service from the time we walked into the restaurant was exceptional. Every employee wished my SO Happy Birthday and greeted us by name. The table service was unparalleled. The food was exceptional. I had the filet mignon. You always hear the phrase "so tender you can cut it with a fork". Well, I... More

Dinner at Lemarie Restaurant could not have been better. Service was outstanding -- Nick was our waiter and was so well informed on wine and food choices. The atmosphere is lovely, the service outstanding, the wine recommendation perfect and the food could not have been higher quality. A perfect Christmas experience.

We love to have dinner at Lemaire. We have never had a bad meal here. The service is always excellent. We had dinner here after the grand illumination. The food was delicious, the wine was reasonably priced. It is very quiet which allows for conversation and a wonderful evening.

Upon entry into the hotel, we were struck by the grand scale of the lobby and the grand hall, with beautiful holiday decorations all around. We enjoyed cocktails in the lounge prior to taking our seats in the restaurant for dinner. The selection was great and the evening specials were especially compelling. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the... More

If you like restaurants with 5 coats of paint on the wall and a hotel setting than this is the place. Peanut soup is terrific, making reservations are difficult not because its extremely busy - just seems like they like to make it difficult when you hang up. The last time I attempted to try it was for my older... More

We were staying at the historic Jefferson and found out that the absolute best fine dining experience in town is right in the hotel. Wonderful atmosphere (just as grand as the hotel lobby) with top notch service and an excellent atmosphere.

Our relative joined us in the bar area for a delicious dinner The offerings were unique and tasty. Even though we dined in the bar area it was quiet enough for comfortable conversation.
