Great. Dining Experience in a very Historic Building!

This unique restaurant is located in the oldest continuously used commercial building in Richmond! The interior displays the workmanship of the early 1800s. The chefs are creative with tasty Southern style cuisine. It is a terrific venue for a group to have cocktails and a memorable dinner!

We chose Juleps because it featured "Southern cuisine". It is housed in a fairly rundown part of Richmond, in handsome premises which claim the longest continuous commercial use in Richmond. A grizzled veteran parked our car for us and had it waiting when we wanted to leave. We started with a delicious mint julep - what else? - and went... More

An absolute jewel of a restaurant. We were seated upstairs....wonderful atmosphere..high vaulted ceiling with rustic exposed beams. Low noise level. Our group ordered veal sweetbreads, rabbit, shrimp and grits, steak and scallops. Delicious all...cooked to perfection. Our server was Adam...he was charming and efficient. Five stars not enough for this fine eatery. We are from DC area with lots of... More

Of course, it was "Restaurant Week" in Richmond this week so the place was packed. I expected the food to be average as the choices are few during this time and I figured it was mass produced. To my surprise, the food was fresh, absolutely delicious and plated beautifully. The service was superior. Of course, a Mint Julep, the house... More

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
