We went to Buckheads recently to celebrate a special ocassion. The ambience is very comfortable and enjoyable. The service was attentive and paced, although our larger party was served much slower than the 2 person tables. I have to admit we were a little dissappointed in the food. My husband ordered a ribeye steak and when the order was delivered to the table he was presented with a sirloin. The server said he hoped that he did not mind, that the cook prepared the sirloin instead! I would have sent it back, but my husband is always agreeable and was too embarassed to do so. He was very dissappointed though. We were amazed that at a place that serves quality steaks, that the steak even made it out of the kitchen if it was not ordered. We were also charged for the Ribeye which was more than the sirloin, but only by a couple of dollars. So, because of that and a few other food dissapointments, we might not be so eager to return soon.

First class steakhouse! Staff always go out of the way to take care of you. A bit pricey, but so worth what you get. Great place for a special occasion meal. Meats are always sooo flavorful and you cant beat the soups!

For the amount of our bill that night we felt that we should have received better service (our waiter was slow and sarcastic) and the food was just ok, I had to send my steak back.

We used to only visit the bar as it's the perfect place for a nightcap on the way home from a night out, but then we had dinner. SO good.

The wine list is excellent. The steaks are the best in town. The mushrooms...be sure to order them, even if you only have a few bites. There is nothing better than putting them in a skillet the next morning and doing baked eggs on top. It's a tradition in our house.

To those who had bad service, you didn't have Andrew or Steve. They are the best.

It will never quite be Peter Lugers in NYC, but in Richmond, VA, in a strip mall no less..... there are few places I enjoy as much.

Went with a group of friends - 14 total. Excellent choice of wines, excellent service and great food. A bit pricey, but considering the quality, still a fair value. One of the most extensive selections of wines that you will see anywhere in Richmond, including some good values if you know what you are looking for. Don't let the location in a strip mall deceive you, this is a high-end place.
