Very good restaurant in the historic Jefferson Hotel. Especially nice during the Christmas Season when the hotel lobby is decorated for the holidays. Reasonably priced for lunch with a limited number of entrees. The service was excellent.

Very busy during holiday season. Long waits so reservations are a must. Service not as attentive this time as in previous visits. Had to gather the attention of the waiter to request coffee and water refills rather than being offered without prompting. Hotel decorations make the venue special. Great food.

My wife and I were celebrating our 16th wedding anniversary. I wanted to surprise her with something special as each year within a marriage is a gift from the Lord. I have been wanting to take her to TJ's at the Jefferson Hotel for several years now but things have happened within our family not to be able to go. We were able to go this year and it was amazing. We were thankful to go and see the beauty of the Christmas decorations. We enjoyed the food and the ability to talk and to prepare for 2017 for our family. We have suggested this time to our friends and family members for them to visit and enjoy the beauty of the Jefferson Hotel during the Christmas Season. We are thankful to the Lord, Jesus Christ, for this time that we were able to experience on December 22, 2016

Dinner before Elf. Arrived at 5 for 5:15 reservations. Seated immediately. Salmon was the best I've ever had. Shared the Caesar Salad as it was quite large, very tasty as well. Christmas music was a bit too loud for intimate conversation. The waitress was ok , she forgot a few things that were requested but should have never been forgotten. She was pleasant. Expectations for a place like TJ's are a wee bit higher than Carrabba's. The quality of our food over road any down falls.

There were a few things that led to my review. Just one example was one of our group ordered a brandy after dinner. The drink came "on the rocks"??? Obviously, she sent it back, and all they did was take the ice out and put it in a cold snifter. The food is always good, but the choice is limited. The manager came over to explain why we couldn't have separate checks. She was a bit condescending to a group of professional women who didn't need another lame excuse. One of our party was kind enough to pick up the check and we paid her.

We really enjoyed a leisurely lunch at TJs and the hotel decorated for the Holiday Season. The food was flavorful with larger portions than expected. Never thought a grilled cheese sandwich could taste SO good! The wait staff was pleasant and professional. Thank you for a wonderful time with friends and colleagues. Ya'll made me look good :)

Everything was very nice. We did order the special Chicken Cordon Bleu but were not told
it would come as a sandwich. It was tasty but not what we were expecting. We paid
extra to have a side salad but the ingredients that were to be in the salad were very
scarce. Disappointing. Paying extra and not getting a side dish, I think the salad
should have been more plentiful.

We were four good friends having a Christmas celebration at our favorite restaurant. The decorations at Christmas time are fabulous. When one walks into the lobby is simply takes your breath away. We had reservations so we were quickly seated in the bar area overlooking the
lobby with its beautiful decorations. Our waiter was very attentive and saw to our every need.
The food was delicious ( especially the crabcakes ). We have plans to return during the New Year to have tea.

The cheddar grits with creole sauce and blacked shrimp was superb. The grits are locally produced and are a bit bigger in size than what you may be used to. They are oh so good. Service is excellent and the selection of locally crafted beers was extensive. I had a seasonal amber brew that was bit hoppy but had a slightly sweet taste that lingered on the palate., Very good.

We were married at The Jefferson Hotel 25 years ago. Still holds a special place in our hearts. Christmas decorations are beautiful. We had music thanks to a local school group. Great place for a holiday lunch. If it won't get you into the spirit, nothing will!

TJs is one of my favorite lunch spot. My niece had never seen The Jefferson dressed up for Christmas so i wanted to share this fabulous Richmond tradition with her. My niece absolutely loved everything about all the Christmas decorations. The food was fabulous.

The food was outstanding, had to be the second best filet I have had in my life behind Statler Grill in NYC. The MR cook on it was perfect, the asparagus was also perfect with a slight crunch on the outside and softness on the inside.
Unfortunately the service was not as it should have been, it was only about a 6 out of 10 and it should have more along the lines of 8, 9 or 10 out of 10. Restaurant was not busy, yet we sat with empty drink glasses and were brought the wrong beverage and no steak knife was presented with filet, I had to ask for one. Lastly, after the meals were placed with us, service never checked back as to the cook of steak or the taste.
Overall very good, but would have rating as outstanding if service had been more up to par.
This was a very disappointing experience ...
This was a very disappointing experience! The service was poor - our drinks arrived in shifts and most were not served until the first course arrived. The children were not given menus. The salad green were not chilled and the peanut soup needed to be sent back to be heated. The salmon was salty and the burgers were mediocre. On top of all the poor food and service they put a 20% gratuity.

My group of seven and I had an amazing brunch at TJ's this past weekend. We had a server that one member of our party had worked with before, Bruce. She was so excited that we had his service again. He was prompt, energetic, funny, polite and well mannered. I plan to request Bruce the next time we dine at TJ's. Our table was on the Mezzanine, which I was worried about but it ended up being perfect..we got to over see the entire setting downstairs and admire all of the food before going down to pick what we wanted. Great experience, thank you for keeping up this Richmond brunch!

wonderful time! Was my son's birthday and we all enjoyed the food, the ambience, and our waitress, Jackie, was wonderful and attentive. Have already booked for a Spring brunch. Tried to taste a little of everything and there was not a thing I didn't enjoy. Highly recommend but plan ahead......

We enjoyed a Saturday lunch at TJ's with our daughter and her boyfriend. The setting is lovely. We especially appreciated the low noise level, relaxed ambiance and excellent-yet-unobtrusive-service, all of which allowed us to actually enjoy our conversation -- something that we miss at most other restaurants. The food was good, but a smidge more creative than tasty. We will certainly go back.

We have been to the Jefferson for brunch before. The food is amazing. The atmosphere is sophisticated. We enjoy taking our time because there is so much food you need to pace yourself. It is beautifully decorated for Christmas, however, you need to book well in advance. When we booked for October 23rd, November, December and beginning of January were already full.

I was told I could not get a reservation at the requested time and had to take an alternate time. When we arrived, the restaurant was practically empty and remained so. In fact, at the time we left, there was only one other table of guests. The service was slow. I had to ask three times for cream for the coffee. The oysters in the Po'Boy were undercooked and there was no "pineapple slaw" as listed on the menu. I have eaten at the Jefferson for years. This was a let-down.
