Buckheads - Richmond Ratings and Reviews

Consistently some of the best food and service in the area. Relatively quiet so you can have a nice conversation without having to scream. Excellent wine list and small batch bourbons available. Buckheads is always our first choice for any special occasion. Pricey but worth every penny.

Wanted to try this place for a long time.....glad we did. Everything as advertised. Service excellent. Steaks cooked to perfection. Free dessert because of our anniversary. Booked online and noted it was a special day for us. Good follow-through. Only knock is that they had only two beers on tap. And, very pricey. But, it's a solid go-to place for that special occasion. Will be returning.

We were immediately seated at a corner table and presented with menus. After making decisions and getting back to conversation we noticed that one of our wine glasses had a lipstick stain. This was not a good first impression. Our waiter quickly removed and replaced the offensive glass. The rest of the evening was really nice and problem free. My only suggestion is that employees be super vigilante about dirty glasses when they set the tables.

I have lived within a few miles of the restaurant for close to 20 years. I have grown up dining here since I was 7 years old. It is a go-to spot for birthdays, Christmas, or other special occasions. Buckhead's never fails to amaze. The wine menu is extensive and fun to browse, the meat is always of excellent quality, and the staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and loyal.

I took my husband for his birthday. Everything was great from the service to the food. Staff very attentive even with our waiter having 2 big parties plus my husband and I. This is a good place to take someone for a special occasion. The new York strip was delicious.

Our server was excellent and very attentive. The food was delicious and steaks cooked to perfection. We were celebrating a birthday, and the evening will be memorable. Our table had glueten free concerns and severe nut allergies.s Our server was very attentive with both. It was the first time our birthday guest had enjoyed a meal at Buckheads. I have no doubt there will be return visits!

Buckhead's is a long term favorite. It excelled once again! We were greeted immediately, seated promptly, and served very professionally. This time we were in the main dining room; even though it was packed, we were still able to have excellent conversations. We all selected a filet; without any hesitation, we were every one totally pleased.

The steak was beautifully seasoned and cooked. I have never seen escargot submerged in garlic butter like the ones at Buckheads were. Wonderful rolls were welcome additions to soak up the butter! Great decaf coffee!

I chose this restaurant over Shula's and my date said Buckhead's was her favorite. I knew ahead of time it was going to be a good night and a good choice. My three guests all said it was a great dinner. The waiter was friendly and polite and gave us time to chat while serving us promptly. I could not have planned or asked for a better evening!

It was awesome, Claude was our waiter and so in the know about all things Buckheads, Service was right on time, not too long between courses, but not rushed either. We loved our entrees, the filets were scrumptious, and the lump crab always a fave. The scallop appetizer was so good, the touch of dijon and the capers were sublime. I t was a pleasure, Claude brought us a chocolate decadence something for our anniversay. Super evening. We will be back.

This place is tucked into a small strip mall in Richmond.
All woodsy and clubby...just lovely. We dine early so we
were alone for some time but by the time we finished they were pouring in.
A wonderful menu and the service was perfect, as was the food.
Any time we're in Richmond this will be a 'must'!

Buckhead's is one of my favorite places to take ou-of-town guests. However, this past Saturday nite, we waited over 1 hour and 45 minutes for our food! Not even our salads or appetizers came out.
What's up? All our waiter did was say the kitchen was backed up, and gave us an extra tiny splash of wine.
Not the Buckhead's I used to know.

The food was excellent. Our waiter on the other hand might have been having an off night. Just not as friendly and exuberant I feel the service should have been for a restaurant of this caliber. If this was my livelihood I would try to be more personable!

First time visiting, and was pleasantly surprised. Even though I didn't get steak I was very happy with my meal- crab imperial, which is my favorite. It was full of large portions of lump crab meat. So so good. The vegetables were seasoned perfectly! The only thing that wasn't he greatest was that potato cake. It had the potential to be good it just didn't quite get there. Some extra seasoning would have helped. My fiancé didn't care for his mashed potatoes either. He only ate a couple scoops. The ambiance was perfect for a surprise date night. Definitely coming back again

The waiter was friendly and helpful. My meal (New York Strip) was terrible (had to "saw" through it with the knife). It was tough and possibly the worst I've had at any steakhouse. I sent most of it back to the kitchen. My Wife's meal was good, but that does not make up for the over all experience. The cost was taken off my bill, which I appreciate, but we were out for a good meal. The waiter apologized, but there was no acknowledgement by a manager. Our first and probably our last visit.

I made reservations for my wife, myself and my three kids so we could celebrate my retirement. It was a perfect evening with wonderful, friendly service along with the always great food. I would certainly recommend Buckhead's to anyone looking for an exceptional dining experience.

Our reservation was made for 8:45 on a Thursday night, we arrived at 8:30 and they gladly seated us early. The decor is very at-home feeling and the seating is nicely spread out. I can see the room being loud if the restaurant is full or the eight top tables behind us were filled in. After reading the reviews I was expecting the noise from a stadium, but honestly, it was very comfortable. Our waiter (Rick) was very polite and helped order a bottle of wine that ended up being excellent which matched our steak perfectly. We started off with an order of calamari that was great followed by our salads that were a perfect flavor before our entrees. We both decided on the Ribeye, both medium-rare which came out cooked perfectly. After going to both Fleming's and Shula's in Richmond and having a steak cooked incorrectly, this was a relief.
The negative reviews I've read on here are mostly from people complaining about price and quantity. If that is the case they should probably look into a Longhorn or Friday's. All I can say is, we were definitely impressed and we will be back for more.
