Lemaire at The Jefferson Hotel Ratings and Reviews
My wife and I celebrated our first anniversary by having dinner at Lemaire. Through Open Table I had let them know we were celebrating our anniversary and asked for one of their better tables. We were seated in one of the smaller and quieter rooms next to a window. The staff added little touches to make the occasion truly special -- the waiter wished us a happy anniversary as he introduced himself, our menu had "Happy Anniversary" printed at the top and even our dessert had a special message written in chocolate sauce. These things, combined with the impeccable service and extraordinary food, made our celebration memorable.
My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and LeMaire was the perfect location. Beautiful space and excellent food. We had the oysters and the rabbit w/pasta from for firsts "hot" list and both were fabulous. I had the Loch Duarte salmon and my husband had the lamb shank. Also excellent. If I'm in Richmond again I will return.
I added simple comment when entering reservation that it was for our anniversary. The hostess had special menu, the waitress immediately said Happy Anniversary, and more. Very conscientious and top-notch experience. Food all goes together so well. Lamb was tender and delicious. Scallops were a buttery treat with perfect sides.
We recently dined for the first time at Lemaire. We spent a couple of days at The Jefferson for our 40th anniversary. Dinner was outstanding. Despite the fact that they were very busy that night (graduation weekend), we were seated with no delay. Our menus had been specially labeled with "Happy Anniversary". Both of us would rate our food as outstanding. My husband had melt in your mouth lamb shank-a generous serving. I had a delicious beef tenderloin. Being a big vegetable person, I must say all of the accompanying vegetables were outstanding as well-both in appearance and in taste. For dessert, we were both treated with a beautiful and to-die-for chocolate concoction of brownie, ganache, drizzled chocolate and raspberries-with "happy anniversary" drizzled in chocolate. I might also add the wine selection was varied and we had a wonderful bottle of a cabernet sauvignon. All in all, a memorable dinner and served by an attentive and charming young lady. We will not wait 40 more years to return!
The service was impeccable. Our server had the answer to all of our questions and steered us in the perfect direction for our "stepmother's day" special dinner. Barely a bite was left on either of our plates at the end of each course. We loved the creativity of the cocktails as well!
Most of my family is gluten-free, so getting to try fried oysters for the first time in our lives was exciting. Our server was kind and attentive and the staff had kindly given us specialized menus with "Congratulations" written at the top, in celebration of one of our graduations. Great meal and warm, inviting ambiance. We all left happy.
We had a wonderful time belatedly celebrating our birthdays and were treated like special guests. We had an amazing experience and thoroughly enjoyed appetizers, entrees and dessert. We were impressed with the wine selection. I highly recommend the Meyer lemon tart - so delicious.
Tried Lemaire during Richmond Rest. week. Great value for the set price. Fried oysters were perfect and beautifully displayed with new potatoes, lettuce, ham, etc. Salmon was so moist - never had better. Polenta was delicious as well as all other accoutrements. Chocolate caramel cake with dark chocolate ice cream - heaven! Service was impeccable.
Delicious dinner for restaurant week. One diner had the filet mignon and the other had the salmon. Both were excellent and well prepared. The cracker meal oysters were particularly great as well as the maple creme brulee! Attentive server without being intrusive. Will definitely return!
This was my first time here and I can tell you that it won't be my last. The food was cooked and plated to perfection. Every morsel was delectable. The service was TOP SHELF and our server was very knowledgeable about the menu, the preparation of the foods and the mindset of the chef. As a foodie, I not only enjoyed the food, but I enjoyed the conversation with the server learning about the different dishes. This restaurant is definitely a gem in Richmond VA and it deserves every bit of the national acclaim that it receives.
My wife and I went for Restaurant week. My wife had the beet appetizer, chicken entree and lemon tart dessert, I had the breaded oyster appetizer, beef tenderloin entree and creme brulee dessert, everything was awesome. Service by Michael was great, there when we needed something, but not intrusive, and told us somewhat about the history of the facility and the alligators. The dining room was elegant. Apparently they have done some tweaking to lessen their prices, this has not lessen the quality nor elegance of the restaurant
One of the best restaurants we have been to in greater Richmond.
