Description: Just one week short of celebrating our 40th Anniversary as Richmond’s premier dining and entertainment venue, The Tobacco Company Restaurant is sad to announce that we have temporarily closed operations due to fire damage. Our first thoughts are of our guests and our restaurant family. The amount of support we have received from area businesses and friends has been heartwarming. We are working with the City and inspectors to assess the damage. We are also working with other local restaurants and businesses to find employment for those displaced by the closing. We will be sending out weekly updates on the progress of our renovations and our plans for our grand reopening.

We went for drinks and apps and ended up staying for dinner. There was a live band that was very good and the service was great. We really enjoyed our evening. The food was pretty good, the best was the coconut shrimp and crab cakes.

Nice place to go for an upscale dinner. A Richmond tradition. Downstairs is the "club" if you are looking for a party spot after dinner.

I ate here while on business staying at the hotel across the street. Definitely a local spot, decent food but a bit expensive for the quality. There was a pretty good live band when I was there. Building dates back to the civil war era. Great place for a late night cocktail.

We spent three days and nights in Richmond in late November.Our first two evening restaurant choices were not great.We randomly picked this restaurant close to our Hotel,TheCrown Plaza on our last evening there.We found a winner indeed!The place has great atmosphere,nicely decorated!We were seated on the third floor,our table overlooked an open Atrium,very nice!For food my wife ordered Baby Back Ribs,I ordered Lasagna.She really enjoyed the ribs and I liked the Lasagna(almost as good as my wife's)We would definitely recommend this place.
