Julep's is one of my favorite restaurants in RVA! I have been many times with large and small groups and no matter the situation they always deliver. I recently dined on Saturday and they had just presented the new summer menu. What a fun and creative menu. I had the Veal Sweetbreads to start, incredible. Chose the excellent Heirloom Tomato...

The food was great, but at $30 an entree, it better have been. Our server insisted on pouring our beer for us, but unfortunately he didn't know how. He poured it into the center of the glass, resulting in four inches of head every time. I couldn't really enjoy my dinner because I had a huge bubble from swallowing all... More

Our evening dinner at Juleps Restaurant was delightful from the elegant salad to the fish and vegetarian fare that my wife and young adult children enjoyed. Even though there were few vegetarian offerings, the staff put together a wonderful plate that combined several side dishes served on a bed of quinoa. The bourbon-pecan tart for dessert was outstanding and well... More

This was our first time at Juleps. We loved it. Great service. Atmosphere is wonderful. And, the food is phenomenal. Our waiter, Joe, was knowledgeable and attentive. We couldn't ask for better service. The food was spectacular. Love, love, love the fried green tomatoes!!!! This is a must-go-to restaurant. We will return!!!

We met friends here for an early dinner on Saturday night and walked away thinking that for the price, there should have been more oohs and ahs. Here's the good and bad: 1 - I eat fish, but not meat, and many of the fish dishes included meat in the sides or directly in the dish. Does fish stew really... More

This was our 2nd or 3rd time to Julep's, but we haven't been in a few years. The atmosphere is fun. Our waiter, Noah, was helpful and attentive. The food was amazing. From the signature cocktails through appetizers, entrees, wine and dessert ( bananas foster), our family of four loved it. The portions were large ( required 2 take home... More

We went here for a special occasion dinner with 8 adults and 1 child. Overall, it was good, but not great. The Food: Good but not great. Our table got the duck, pork roast, shrimp and grits, and new york strip entrees. They were all good, but nobody was "wowed". It was not "amazing" as promised. This was a slight... More

Juleps was located in an area of many empty storefronts in Richmond, but it was beautifully appointed inside, romantic and quiet (although there were numerous other diners, despite it being midweek), the food was absolutely wonderful, all courses, and our waiter was one of the most professional, polished, and friendly waiters we have had in a very long time.

I have read a lot of mixed reviews on the Web site, but, for us, everything was great. Noel was our server and he did a wonderful job. We enjoyed the fried green tomatoes, crab cakes, and seafood stew. Noel recommended a Virginia wine that was delicious. We liked the look and feel of the place, and enjoyed hearing that... More

I joined two friends for dinnner during Richmond's Restaurant week at this restaurant. It is a lovely place and the seating was comfortable. The food was excellent with the crabcake entree beautifully displayed and made to perfection. The portions were on the small side but that's what you get when you spend $25 for a three-course dinner at a top... More
