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

The grilled cheese sandwich was out of this world! The service was grand, the ambience perfect, the food so good. Lynchburg is so blessed with great restaurants!

Nice location, especially in the summer when the outdoor seating is open. Good beers on tap. Food isn't bad, it just isn't outstanding. Pleasant, helpful staff. Prices are reasonable.

Robin Alexander is one of my favorite places in Lynchburg, located in a handsome area of downtown, this repurposed warehouse is an interesting fusion of modern and classic sensibilities that really lends to an enjoyable dining experience. Filet, Jambalaya, Thai Lettuce Cups. All classics. All Delicious. My only real critique is that the few times that I've had the Calamari,... More

Of all the reviewing I did beforehand, this place got my attention. The atmosphere looked cool and previewing the menu finished it off. Well, in person, the atmosphere definitely is cool! The staff is super friendly and knowledgeable! And the menu did NOT disappoint!! There were so many things I wanted to try that i WILL be back several different... More

Really enjoyed our evening meals of Mediterranean chicken (one with goats cheese and spinach, the other similar to Chicken parmesan). Both were cooked to perfection, succulent and tasty with al dente vegetables. Service was quick and attentive, even though it was a busy Friday night with multiple large parties. Atmosphere was cosy and, surprisingly, given the number of people, not... More
