We've found that the bar at Le Maire offers the full dinner menu and is not crowded if you come early in the evening. My wife and I love to drop in around 5:30 PM just on the spur of the moment and be seated at one of the tables with a great view of Franklin Street. The food is... More

I enjoyed my evening at Lemaire more than I expected. Let me be clear, I know this is a fine restaurant, that is why I picked it for an anniversary dinner with my wife. That said, I was really impressed with every aspect of the meal we enjoyed. The service was impeccable (Thank you Mark) and the food, from appetizer... More

Chef Walter Bundy is turning out excellent Southern local cuisine, but table side service keeps Lemaire from being the world-class. The Southern regional cuisine is well executed. I'll be upfront, for me a hotel-driven restaurant is generally less attractive than a chef-driven restaurant, regardless of the number of stars. That said, I'll take RVA over Vegas any day, specifically because... More

We ate at the bar because Lemaire has fantastic bartenders. Our food was fantastic. We had the pork and beef entrees. The brussel sprouts, sweet potato purée and pancetta were a great accompaniment to the pork. My husbands beef tenderloin was one of the best pieces of beef we've had.

The food and service was good, however, the overall experience was just average. Two of our entrees were over salted.

We were there for dinner on New Years eve, The food the service was great. Our waitress Leigh Ann was a true professional she was there to every need we had during the meal. I have had dinner a Lemaire many times never had a bad meal or bad service. The management has trained the staff perfectly.
