“Very cool atmosphere and good food”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

first time diner. across from Omni and they told me it was a "classic richmond experience". The inside is very cool with an antique elevator, open loft/warehouse space and all the exposed brick you could every want. It was busy at lunch, but not to prevent conversation.

The she-crab soup was excellent, and a Cuban sandwich was well done. Everyone had good lunches and very affordable at lunch time with entrees $9-$15 for most plates.

Good service as well.

Started visiting the Tobacco Company in 1975.Then in the mid Ninties I hung out there alot for a few years.since then its been a couple of times a year since then.The atmosphere is always vibirant and upbeat.The food selection and service is always first class.The food is always Tasty and Fresh.After Dinner its always great to hang out down in the lounge area and listen to one of the many local Bands that play there.This makes for a fun evening out....The Tobacco Company knows how to show you a good time. I hope to keep returning for many more Years...........

“Great atmosphere, great food.”
Reviewed September 20, 2013 via mobile

Had pre dinner drinks at the lively stylish bar and then took the Victorian elevator up to the next level to enjoy an excellent evening meal. The food was very well presented and very imaginative. Service was very attentive and the setting was just amazing. Added to this a very good female vocalist was belting out some great Billie Holiday classics. All in all a very memorable evening was had in this fine restaurant/bar. Will return.

“busy place avarage service”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

I had Prime rib which was good with one beer. The bill was $ 38 which was overpriced for wat I got sitting on the pub counter. When the meat was ready I asked to the waiter some mustard on the side. He forgot it. The interiors are nice
