We met a few folks before an evening event. A good wine list, a nice menu, and a great table awaited. Everything we ordered was great. My only note was that our server was too interested in talking...origins of the food, critiques of other restaurants, etc. we were almost late getting out, which wasn't necessary at all. Still, overall, it... More

First visit to Julep's and it's been a long time since I've had a meal this amazing. Starting at the bar with a couple of Porch Rockers, very smooth bourbon drink. I had the country ham app. I love country ham and this was some of the best. My entree choice was the lamb chops. Probably the best lamb I've... More

The food here was fabulous and all employees very friendly and helpful, but honestly it was so loud in the restaurant it was difficult to talk to the people at our own table.

We had a party of 6 people and we all had a great time. The place is wonderfully decorated. Our server was absolutely great. The bartender made great drinks. Everybody loved the food. Absolutely no complaints from anybody. Bottom line...You need to come here!!!!

Wife and I were in Richmond for July 4 weekend. Julep's was nearby and piqued our interest. Thoroughly enjoyed dinner. She had the grits; I went for the aged steak. Our waiter All is a pro - exquisite service. Made us feel right at home and never missed a beat.

Love love Juleps. It has been nine years since I have been there and to their new location (old Montaldos). We started off the evening with fried green tomatoes, salad and our cocktails. Delicious and great way to start our evening. Next we had Rockfish which was delicious. Such southern cuisine. Our server was very cordial, knew the menu and... More

We ordered fried green tomatoes and they were on our table in 2 min and definitely didn't taste fresh. Same for our entree with the Shrimp & Grits. Shrimp was hard as a rock and the rue was overdone because of the additional heating from the microwave. Lack of seasoning as well. I hate spending $$$ for food that has... More

I love this place! There is never anything negative to say about it. As a vegetarian, my choices are often limited by a Southern Style restaurant. Make no mistake about this: this is not southern food but Southern Cuisine. They were able to make a separate portion of cheese grits topped with arugula and fried green tomatoes! It looked like...

Our experience with Juleps was in no way negative, but there wasn't enough positive to make us want to come back. My tenderloin was nicely prepared and cooked as I requested. My wife's shrimp dish was perfectly acceptable. However, neither dish was noteworthy and caused us to want to try the restaurant again. Continuing in this vein was the service.... More

Julep's offers outstanding service along with delicious seafood. The crab cake was extraordinary! One of the best meals out I have ever had. Highly recommended.
