The restaurant moved from its old location and it has lost its charm. Very noisy, bar small, bar tender not very engaged. Had a nice bottle of wine and oyster app, rather bland, nothing special. Salads OK, not enough dressing. (As in none) Server brought us one piece of bread, never came back to offer any more. Dinner, one filet... More

Atmosphere nice, waiter knowledgeable.service very good- drinks were always refreshed. Scallop appetizer very good as well as the crab cake. Mixed green salad not great nor was the strip sirloin.

Visiting the area and decided to stop in Richmond center city hoping to find a nice restaurant for dinner. We literally stumbled upon Julep's and found we really lucked out. We enjoyed the atmosphere, the attentive staff and the delicious food. Truly excellent ingredients in all the dishes we had. Shrimp and grits was a winner, as was the Brunswick... More

Julep's is a Southern Cuisine restaurant with a great atmosphere and wonderful menu choices that are fresh and delicious. It is walking distance to the Hilton Richmond, Marriott and Convention Center. Here is my experience tonight: I was able to get seated before the rush (w/out reservation) thanks to the friendly and helpful host, Jonathan! Noel was my attentive server... More

Nice place, great food had the Shrimp and Grits, some had the duck and others tried the beef... All very good, the service at times is lacking but in this environment it was acceptable

Juleps has a lot going for it - great location downtown, fun atmosphere, and good food. Parking in the area is somewhat of a pain so allow extra time for that. Food is a little pricey, but the quality matches. Our service was good, but slow, there was a large party in the back room so this probably backed things... More

Julep's gets high praise and I expected better service and tastier fish. Our server was neither friendly nor helpful and the fish dish was just so so. The mint julep WAS yummy.

Friends took us here on New Year's eve for dinner while we were visiting town and we really enjoyed our meal. We started with the bacon wrapped scallops and the fried oyster appetizers. The fried oysters were a far more tasty choice. For dinner I had the New York strip which was cooked to perfection. The other meal of note... More

We found the dishes we ordered to be wonderful in presentation and taste. Our server, though, was less than enthusiastic or attentive and the portions were small. We needed to request another corn muffin. There are so many other great restaurants in Richmond that we will not be returning.

How can this be? I ate every scrap of everything. The fried green tomato and citrus salad starters; the perfectly cooked venison that, unlike most farm raised meats, actually had bags of flavor; the empty chocolate torte dessert plate (I normally hate chocolate torte); the excellent excellent service... Can't wait to come back.
