Visited the Tobacco Company for a business dinner. The food was excellent, I ordered a filet and it was cooked perfectly. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Not to be missed in Richmond!

I enjoyed a nice dinner here with my wife after attending a business function. The interior is really unique as you can tell from the photos posted here in TripAdvisor. They have a good range of drinks. For entrees, I went with prime rib au poivre. It was served with not only the au poivre sauce (a lot of it)... More

I made the reservation on line and I left a comment that said it was my wife's and I anniversary. Once at the restaurant: We was seated immediately. The service was well organized and efficient. The food was delicious. And than came the cheese cake that neither was expecting. It was for our anniversary and was on the house. How... More

We went for an anniversary dinner. I was hoping for something romantic and my husband wanted to try this. I think it was the elevator and the old tobacco warehouse that intrigued him. We got a drink at the bar, which I think was my favorite place. The bartender was great and asked how I liked my drink...a little on... More

I recently went to lunch with family members who live in Richmond. The atmosphere is really unique, as we were seated in a private booth that was made out of an old elevating device. The staff was friendly and efficient, and the she-crab soup was delicious. I got the half sandwich (delicious chicken salad) with the soup for $9.99, and... More

Sat at the bar and had drinks and food. Appetizers were great value for money. Staff were quick and pleasant. The building itself is wonderful. The decor really nice. Unfortunately there was no live music when we were there but I'm sure the atmosphere is great when there is.

I originally went he 15 years ago and this was my 3rd time back and it is still the same quality charm to it. This was my 2nd time for dinner and it was wonderful. Steaks were cooked to order and very tasty. The ribeye is with a coffee rub on it which was just the right amount. My wife... More

This quaint Richmond icon is a perfect combination of upscale & casual and offers more than just a dining experience. The food is always on-point (and you pay accordingly), the bar is a great after-work drink-with-friends kind of spot and there is music and dancing in the basement. Weekday happy hour specials are usually pretty good, with hors d'evours offered... More

"Fun layout, musical acts, casual crowd" sums it up. The food wasm't bad, the service was not high end at all, but it wasn't unpleasant either. If you can gdt a table by a balcony and you aren't expecting gourmet, this is a nice four star experience. Otherwise: average.

We had a special family meal here and the calamari was the best I have ever had. Not only this but the history around this restaurant is fascinating and really does take you back in time. The elevator is fantastic too! Waiter service was great, food some of the best I've had and the bar was also a lovely setting... More
