The service and food were impeccable! Fried green tomatoes are a must!! Cocktails were delicious, and of course food and dessert did not disappoint. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Our group of 5 got 5 different things, and everyone loved what they got.

We walked to Julep on a Friday evening and were seated at a comfortable booth, served by a knowledgeable, former chef who helped us with choices and was friendly but not overly solicitous. He helped with my choice of a house specialty cocktail assuring me the citrus fizz would not be super sweet and appetite killing. He was right--great drink.... More

My sister and I enjoyed a delightful meal at Julep's. We were seated at a table by the window where we had a great vantage point on the activities in the restaurant as well as the happenings outside. The decor is understated and elegant with a beautiful bar serving as the focal point. White table clothes, a flower in a... More

Not impressed during our recent visit. Our waiter seemed fairly indifferent to us. The Deviled Egg appetizer was boring. The signature Shrimp and Grits was not very good with the shrimp overcooked with a salty gummy gravy. The steak was not cooked properly and not very flavorful. To pricey for a mediocre experience. Little ambiance.

Ever since we hosted our (wedding) rehearsal dinner at Julep's in 2004, this has been one of our favorites to eat at when visiting RVA. The food is fantastic as are the drinks. Really one of the best places to eat at!

My husband & I recently went to Julep's to celebrate my birthday. It was our first time there. We had reservations and when we arrived, right on time, we were promptly seated. The service the entire evening was excellent. We started with appetizers, my husband getting the fried oysters, which he said were delicious. There were jalepenos & pickles on... More

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.
