“LEMAIRE is in the top 5 of great dining in Richmond”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

Starting with the Golden Beet Salad with Endive which was oh so crisp and good. The Gorgonzola was when of the best I have had in a long time. Then to the Chicken Fried Oysters which were over the top fine. I mean Oysters with a southern flair that have surpassed anything like it i have ever had.My main dish for the night was the Rockfish and can I tell you it was some of the finest fresh local Rockfish I ever had done to perfection. Every time you go to Lemaire its a culinary orgasm and something different. They have a great wine list and service is second to none. Our waitress was so good and so professional I had to go tell the manager how good she was. Great service always makes great dining experience better. Lemaire is a must stop for fine dining in Richmond.

“Upscale and Worth It”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

This is definitely an upscale and pricey restaurant, but it is worth every penny. If you are celebrating a special evening, this is the place to go. Service is impeccable, food is unbelievably good, and the restaurant is pristine. My husband took me there to propose and now we celebrate every anniversary there.

Lenmaire demonstrates what a resturant experience is supposed to be. Knowledgeable and attentive staff. Culinary delights. Timeless comfortable atmosphere. Food options proudly support locally grown and organic farmers. Menu is accurately descriptive.
