This is my honest review after dining here five times. The first experience was so wonderful, I wanted to wait and make sure juleps would deliver the same great effort. And they have. The attention to detail is magnificent. We have been fortunate to have Joe as our waiter each time. I'm sure all of the staff does an excellent... More

I had a Restaurant.com certificate for this restaurant, so it was our destination for dinner this Saturday evening. What a great place. We went with our waiters suggestions, and had one of the best meals we've had in a long time. Just an enjoyable evening overall. Highly recommend this restaurant.

I wish they had a half rating! Three is too low for this review, but four is just slightly too high! First things first, the fried green tomatoes are fantastic. I am talking I would go back just for those type of fantastic. They have a funky twist on the usual southern flare and the most delicious pimento cheese under... More

The fried green tomatoes are a must. The wine selection is excellent as well. My wife had the crab cakes (almost all lump crab meat and minimal filler) and I had the shrimp and grits. Both were phenomenal. Make a reservation in advance as the restaurant is small and fills quickly. The table side bananas foster is a fun way... More

A Monday night date night reservation brought us to Julep's. We were greeted and seated immediately and my coat checked. Service by Noel was very good although he didn't know a lot about the fine old building. We started with a very nice bottle of Dolium Reserva Malbec. There were no specials offered and from reviews i read afterwords this... More

After many visits here and considering the other high end restaurants in town, we have decided Julep's is #1. The food is consistently great, the service is a level above the rest, and the atmosphere is lovely. We have several favorites in Richmond, new and old, but as others have mentioned, Julep's is usually where we go for special occasions.... More

My wife and I had not been out just the two of us in a long time. This was a wonderful "date night". We thought this was a new restaurant to us, but when we arrived we discovered we had been there before as None Such Place. The food and service was top shelf. I had never had Wild Boar... More

I'm not a fan of "da bottom" and only went there since my sister gave me a Groupon for Julep's and I had to use it. There was a function in downtown so no reservations were available, but we sat at the bar and had dinner. The hostess, Niki, was very nice and so was the bartender. The wine/beer list... More

There are several restaurants that we, as a family, choose for special occasions and one of the best is Juleps, it never disappoints with the service, the food and the ambiance. The minute we sat down for cocktails, we were greeted by the the very knowledgeable waiter who suggested several items on the menu, we took his suggestions and enjoyed... More

Well, the first amazing mea we had there this summer was followed by an equally amazing meal on New Year's Eve, So, it's now official: this is one of the finest restaurants we've ever eaten in. Fried green tomatoes are to die for, soups are fantastic, and every entree we've had was equally as fantastic. And the service (we had... More
