I have always enjoyed the food here. The servers are attentive and the decor is fun. My biggest complaint is that the live music that is sometimes offered can be rock concert loud. Call before going if you care to talk to the people you are dining with. I last ate there on Feb. 13, 2015. For just under $16... More

So we dropped in at 11 p.m. on a Saturday night. The lady behind the bar was great, accomodated our desire for food. And the crowd at the bar was really fun. A terrific experience.

This restaurant is worth coming back to! They do a great job changing their menu to keep it unique and a good variety. Absolutely love this restaurant.

Was here most recently with a large group; usually here with family or as a date night. RA consistently delivers good food, especially our favorites, the burgers.

I wish there were a "below average" category; that would have been my rating. My group of five dined at RA as part of a local TV station's "Restaurant Week." The prices were high. The menu was limited and repetitive. The service was slow. I made reservations and STILL had to wait. Unacceptable. Their so-called homemade mac and cheese side... More

Excellent atmosphere and night entertainment. Food is good but not out of this world. Best place in Lynchburg for drinks, especially martinis. Great staff.

In short, RA Bistro is good and has a good atmosphere for a nice date, but isn't really a must-visit (especially if you're just passing through). We went to RA Bistro at about 5:30 on a Tuesday evening. It was pretty much empty then, so there was no wait for a seat (though, this was during the local colleges’ winter... More

Across from the hotel this restaurant has a well varied good menu with excellent pricing. The bar area is also nice for just a drink and/or appetizers.

My girlfriend took me here for my birthday dinner. The food was good but I thought it was a little higher than it needed to be. Salad didn't come with our meal and had to be added for an additional price. Again, the food was good but NOT that good! It was also a little too dark in there for... More
