Description: Just one week short of celebrating our 40th Anniversary as Richmond’s premier dining and entertainment venue, The Tobacco Company Restaurant is sad to announce that we have temporarily closed operations due to fire damage. Our first thoughts are of our guests and our restaurant family. The amount of support we have received from area businesses and friends has been heartwarming. We are working with the City and inspectors to assess the damage. We are also working with other local restaurants and businesses to find employment for those displaced by the closing. We will be sending out weekly updates on the progress of our renovations and our plans for our grand reopening.

This is one of those places that you enter and find yourself looking up, and all around to take in the beauty of this restored building while being led to your table. Once there, you'll enjoy a great meal and your favorite beverage. The steaks there are particularly good and the staff is very professional - a great night awaits. We'll return when in town!

My husband and I stopped in for a light lunch while in Richmond. I had a bowl of she crab soup that I enjoyed, but the highlight was my key lime pie. It was definitely a two person slice of rich yumminess (is that even a word). It opens for lunch at 11:30 and remains open until 2:30. Get there early as you'll have to find a parking space.

The Tobacco Company is a Richmond, VA legend in fine dining with an atmosphere and history that is second to none. With that in mind, we decided to have lunch here after our daughters high school graduation ceremony.

We had reserved a table ahead of time since we knew it would be busy..even for lunch. Upon arriving we were greeted by the establishments friendly and professional staff and seated quickly on one of their upper levels. The surroundings are stunning and the decorations elevate the atmosphere. It is truly representative of a fine dining experience.

We found the lunch menu limited but many different tastes were represented from their salads to their burgers and fries to their blackened fish. From the appetizers to the main course, the food was delicious. Even for lunch the prices are on the high side; however, the food and ambiance are well worth your hard earned money.

So if you want a restaurant that is steeped in history, offers elegant surroundings and fantastic food..you've found the place.
