Cost: $65 for the Turkey Tasting Menu (includes soup, salad, turkey entrée, dessert) I come to Lemaire for celebrations and holidays. Made Thanksgiving reservations in the summer as they book up quickly. Here's my list or disappointments and items that met my expectations. Disappointments: - Soup was slightly warm. - Could not substitute soup for another soup. - Poorly trained... More

Took my son out for a nice dinner while visiting him @ VCU. Wished we went to Morton's as I was very disappointed with the food and service. The hostess seemed personally offended that we did not like the first place she sat us and actually rolled her eyes. My son asked if we could leave but I assured him... More

Undoubtedly a varied and dynamic menu with many great delights on offer to tempt your taste buds, however, ambiance was lacking - the classic southern dining experience was a bit austere and would never be classed as intimate, and the dishes did not jump out as anything exceptional, just above average cuisine, which is good but not good enough to...

This is a lovely, quiet, romantic restaurant within a comparable hotel. Food and service were outstanding, wine list was impressive with good options within a wide range of price points. Lemaire is a great overall value for an exceptional meal and experience.

Rarely do restaurants live up to the advanced billing which was the case at lemaire. Let me start by saying the food was good. Nothing really came across as outstanding but nothing was bad either. I started with the tuna appetizer. By far, the most dissapointing dish of the night. The tuna was fresh, mixed with cucumbers on a seaweed... More

This restaurant is located in the Jefferson Hotel which is exquisite. So arrive early to take in all the splendor of the hotel facilities before dining. Don't forget to visit the gift shop and florist on the lower level. And the bar has wonderful happy hour cocktails for only $5!! The decor of the restaurant continues the beauty of the... More

I am picky about restaurants and I have no complaints at all about this one. The wine list was extensive and well thought out. The food was innovative and the server knew which dishes to recommend to a person with gluten issues. It was comfortable and quiet. It was so nice to be able to carry on a conversation!! Highly...

We tried three desserts and the cheesecake won. The bing cherry reduction sauce made it super delicious. My bread pudding was not very tasty and could have used more sauce to give it more flavor. It tasted very bland, almost cloying. and the chocolate s'more creme brulee was not to our taste. We like basic creme brulee much better! I... More

Not only is this restaurant in one of the most beautiful hotels I have ever seen it is also operated in such a way that it is an incredible experience in it's own right. The Jefferson Hotel is a gem.
