Buckheads - Richmond Ratings and Reviews
Waited an unreasonable amount of time between salad and entree. Server apologized and said that "one of the steaks had to be refired." Steaks came out, one perfect, one an over cooked hockey puck. Also our bearnaisse sauce was on the side, not sure why. Server was attentive and apologetic and comped the steak.
Three people had the filets which were very good. I had the strip which was very disappointing. For prime meat, it was tough and chewy, more like sirloin. The waiter was friendly, but slow. I suspect that is on purpose so people will drink more. For four people, the bill was almost $500 which is very pricy.
Lucky me, I was given the gift of a dinner for two at Buckhead's!!! I Celebrated my birthday here and it was certainly the right choice. Everything was absolutely perfect from start to finish. Service was excellent and the food was simply delicious. Would definitely go back again. Perfect restaurant for special occasions 🎉
Strongly recommend ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I went to Buckhead's for the first time recently to celebrate a birthday with my boyfriend. Luckily, we were seated at a booth, which is a lot cozier (and quieter) than being seated in the first dining room we passed through. The food was very good; the filet excellent and cooked perfectly (and he's very picky about doneness). My only minor complaint would be that the service was very slow. It took a long time to get our food and too long to get the bill. That being said, I would still return for a special occasion.
What a disappointment! This is not the Buckheads of old - it used to be our favorite restaurant, but it has changed and not for the better! I could not recommend Buckheads to anyone. We spent $182 and it makes me sick to think about it. We ordered the lobster bisque as a starter, took one taste and stopped, it tasted like tomatoe soup with too much salt &a overpowering sherry, we told our waiter we couldn't eat it and he said he would take it off our bill, then he came back and said the owner was in the kitchen, tasted it and agreed with us, the waiter told us 3 times we weren't being charged for it - we heard the first time! We ordered fillets with Yukon mashed potatoes, fillets were ok, mashed potatoes heavy & gluey didn't eat them after one taste, salads nothing to rave about, looked like they opened the salad bags you buy at the grocery store and dumped some bottled dressing on. Since this was a special occasion our dessert was on the house - we ordered the Godiva cake, wished we had told them to keep it - it was a small cold bundt cake with chocolate poured over it - we were expecting a warm cake with a gooey chocolate center boy were we surprised. Our waiter could not get rid us fast enough- we hadn't finished our coffee when he brought us our check. Our reservation as for 7:30 on Friday night, the bar was crowded but the dining room was empty - now I know why.
We arrived for an early dinner on a Friday evening; in fact, we were the first couple to be seated in the dining room. The waiter was very attentive and informative. We were glad to see on the menu that our orders of filet mignon with Bearnaise sauce would also include the salad (our Caesar was delicious), the potato and vegetable instead of having to choose a la carte items. The so-called Patricia Cornwell potato cakes (she actually mentioned them in one of her books) were tasty and our steaks were cooked exactly how we like them. The only suggestion I might have for this delightful restaurant is to perhaps spruce up the entryway a bit. A pot out front had what looked like an almost dead rosemary plant in it and the doors looked like they could use some paint. Also, from the outside parking area, the curtains/shades looked quite heavy and drab.
Birthday dinner for best friend. As a prior guest, I was confident that the food , service, and ambiance would be great. This was my friend 's first visit and she is still talking about the Salmon with lemon butter sauce. I had the crab cakes. The mashed potatoes with pancetta and veggies were very flavorful. Our server was the best. Loved that he helped me select a terrific glass of wine (that wasn't the most expensive). Overall experience was outstanding. Buckheads is my "go to" restaurant for special occasions or if you just want to treat yourself.
I asked one of my co-workers if she knew of any restaurants that had REALLY good food and a nice ambiance because I wanted to take my husband out for his birthday. She mentioned a few and then she said we should try Buckheads. My husband and I are seafood lovers, and that's what we ordered but he had steak as well and I must say, the food and the all around experience was outstanding.
Unfortunately I had high hopes for Buck heads as it's supposed to be an excellent chop house. My fiance and I found it to be quite the opposite. The fellow who bussed our table showed more attention to us then our waiter. The food was OK but nothing that I couldn't get at any other high end place. I told them it was for our anniversary and only heard congrats on our way out the door 2 hours after we sat down. The only reason we were there that long is ALL of the food took forever, and the waiter took even longer to get our check...
It just isn't worth the money. Fifty dollars for a filet was way too much for the location and quality. The potato of the day was bland and gummy and both accompanying vegetables were cold on arrival. Wine was very good and the service was excellent. Just not worth the money.
My wife and I decided to go out for dinner the day before Valentine's day to celebrate.
We decided on Buckhead's based on a recommendation from a neighbor. We were not disappointed, and very pleasantly surprised. The food was great! The atmosphere was perfect! Not too loud, no screaming children, perfect sized space, just right for an intimate dinner. The wait staff were very pleasant. Very attentive, but no overly so. We never had to ask to have our empty glasses filled. The filet mignon steaks were cooked to perfection! Thank you for a memorable experience. We'll be back. Our compliments to the chef, wait staff, and management!
