Pricey but excellent!

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... read more

We have been to this restaurant several times, good food, great service and a quiet place for a nice dinner with my wife and friends. It's in Shockoe Bottom which might turn some off but with on street parking and good food it's a great choice in Richmond.

We made reservations, and were seated right on top of another couple downstairs by the window. They cram folks in there. When making our reservation I asked for seating upstairs; on arrival was denied. I hate basically sharing a table with other people, there was no privacy in the conversation. So try to pick a slow time to go, if... More

Really good southern cousine in a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere with friendly, attentive and knowledgeable staff. This part of Richmond, except for the highways, is like a European city. All in all, much better than any of the major chains of restaurents

Given the other reviews was expecting much better. The fried green tomatoes were very good, the pork belly appeared to be overlooked and the country seafood soup was a little bit too salty. The service was excellent though and the server was helpful. Maybe I should have gone with the Rabbit which the server recommended highly.

I love this restaurant because it lends itself to many different groups there were dates, special occasions, business dinners, and friends groups. I went here on a date with my fiance and had an excellent time. We started off the night by ordering a nice bottle of wine and the fried green tomato appetizer. We then selected our entrees, the...

We Looked forward to 'upscaled' southern cooking and Juleps didn't disappoint. First credit to Noel our server who was totally attentive and professional and guided us through a wonderful meal. We had shrimp and grits and fried green tomatoes to start. Both were the best I 'd ever had. Salads were delicious and the my main of rabbit with lentils... More

Our first dinner at Juleps but definitely not the last. On a recent early Saturday evening we had one of the best dining experiences we have had in a long time. Yes, you can go places and have great food, service and ambiance, but Juleps provided an almost perfect experience. Our meal was nicely paced. The food was incredible. The... More
