We went for dinner before the opera and everything about this restaurant was wonderful. Our server was amazing and the food will blow you away. All of this and we were still on time for the opera.

Great restaurant with a hip decor. Loved it all around. The food and service were spot on and there was nothing bad we could say about our dinner at Julep. We are having my son's graduation from UR there, can't wait!

Wife and I were looking for someplace to have a special dinner to celebrate the anniversary of our first date. Location may seem a bit iffy in the downtown area of Richmond, but inside it is a lovely transformation with a touch of old school charm and modern features. Wait staff was very attentive and the food came out of... More

Business trip, chosen by a local. Fried green tomatoes as an appetizer were memorable as one of those tastes you don't forget. Shrimp and grits were also excellent. Great, friendly and informative staff. Definitely a place to experience

We are not from Richmond so we asked friends for a suggestion and they said this place had southern food in a fancier style. And that's pretty much it. The food was delicious, well presented, and the place's atmosphere is very cozy and stylish. I had shrimp and grits and my husband the NY steak (had a great sauce) We... More

Juleps was recommended to me during my last trip to Richmond a couple of weeks ago. I like the area that the restaurant is located in, and the place itself is in a very unpretentious looking corner building. It is quite lovely inside with a sweeping staircase and beautiful old wooden beams. We were told by the waiter that it... More

I anticipated that this would be something that was just hyped up and it would be a let down. I was pleasantly surprised that the food was great. I got the shrimp and grits cooked to order and my date got the seasonal fish (rock fish ) and both were great. Although I'm greedy and not full, however I'm satisfied.

We ate here on 1/15/15. What a goldmine! On our way back from FL... my wife doesn't like to drive too many hours, so we stopped in Richmond because it was about 6 hours from home. I looked online and found Juleps and Mama Js. (Still looking for Southern cuisine while we're in the South.) We almost stopped at Mama... More
