When I travel I try to eat local sustainable food. Lemaire has it all, plus a talented chef. If the photos look elegant and formal, don't let the formal fool you. Come in blue jeans and relax. You're about to have one wonderful food experience. Excellent service, a terrific menu, and the best wine list I've seen in years... and... More

We dined here for the first time last night. It is restaurant week so the menu is limited (if you want). Portions were perfect sized (although I'm sure some would say small) of beautifully conceived and executed food. My husband had the white almond garlic soup while I started with the cracker crusted oysters. This was followed by salmon for... More

The seasonal menu was about to change when we visited , thus the selection was somewhat limited. The service was snappy and the food quite good.

I made a reservation here for my anniversary dinner. The service was incredible. Our server checked on us constantly and made sure everything was perfect. The crab cakes appetizer was some of the best crab cakes I've ever had. My beef tenderloin was cooked right to medium rare, but the taste was a bit lacking. But it was a huge... More

From the appetizers, to the entrees, to the desserts, everything was exceptional. The service was impeccable. The atmosphere calm and quiet for conversation. It was our last night visiting Richmond and what a lovely choice we made for dinner.

We sat on the patio outside the barroom during happy hour and enjoyed a few drinks and the happy hour special. The food was delicious, but portions small. The wait staff was terrific. A great environment.

We live in Richmond and I love to try different restaurants around town. Honestly, Lemaire wasn't on the top of my list except I had heard from friends who had eaten there and they talked about how delicious their dinner and fun their dinner was. So one date night we decided to check it out and I'm so happy that... More

I have mentioned this restaurant in y hotel review, but it is worthy of repeating. The dining room is elegant . The service is exquisite. The wait staff, Nick and Josh were professional and friendly. Nick is one of the best waiters I have encountered in years. The manager, Mr.McGehee is attentive and focused on guest satisfaction. Now for the... More

We celebrated our birthday (twins sisters) with our other sister and cousin. Simply elegant and we sampled the rockfish, beef medallions, salmon and pork. Our meals were superb and our waiter was perfect. We topped it off with desserts of creme brûlée, chocolate pie and loved them all! Delicious dinner and we celebrated by spending the night! On the top... More
