TJ's at The Jefferson Hotel Ratings and Reviews
We enjoy going to the Jefferson for the holidays; it truly cannot be beat for the environment. Everyone enjoyed their meal but don't order the crab sandwich. The crab has no seasoning at all, is all mashed up and is on an English muffin that you can hardly see or taste. I actually asked the waiter if there was a top to the muffin, and she pointed out it was hidden under the slice of tomato. We will return next year, and I'll try something else!
Ordered crab cake sandwich for lunch, it was the worst tasting crab cake. It was hard to taste any crab meat or crab flavor. My husband ordered a cheeseburger and he indicated it wasn't anything to talk about.
We both razed about the french fries.
I was very surprised because the food has always been very good at TJs. This was a disappointing lunch for us.
My husband and I celebrated our 48th wedding anniversary by having lunch at the TJ room at the Jefferson Hotel. We made reservations in advance. We parked in the free hotel parking lot. Once inside, we made our way downstairs to TJ’s.
The host greeted us immediately and ushered us to a table next to one of the floor to ceiling windows. Ben, our server, appeared quickly and provided us with ice water as he explained the special of the day. We reviewed the menu while Ben went to get our drinks. When Ben returned, we placed our orders.
I had the salmon entrée and he had the grilled chicken sandwich with a fruit bowl. The portion sizes were just right. We both had ice tea. Our food arrived in a reasonable amount of time. The meals were hot and appealing. My sandwich was expertly seasoned. Ben came by a few minutes after serving our meals to check to see if everything was okay. He also returned a couple of times to refill our drinks and ask if we needed anything.
The food, service, elegance, and atmosphere was everything we expected from an establishment of this caliber. We will be back for another enjoyable lunch.
We came for my Mother in Law's 70th birthday. I asked (late) to be placed in the Rotunda because she has difficulty walking and our request was granted. We had 2 children, 9 and 5, and they were treated exceptionally well by our server, Mark. I would like to commend him on his friendliness, attentiveness and professionalism. I was a Banquet Captain for 4 years at the Jefferson and felt very proud of the service, cleanliness, ambiance and overall experience for my family last Sunday. Thank you! Job well done!
We were on vacation, had taken a tour and the Jefferson Hotel was highly recommended in the tour. My husband even ordered what the tour guide had suggested: Peanut Soup and a Caesar's Salad with Fried Oysters. The tour guide Steven's recommendation was spot on - now we highly recommend it also!
We took our Boss here for lunch as she doesn't get to see much of Richmond when she comes in for a visit. She was completely in awe when walking through the Jefferson Hotel and was thrilled with the food and service at TJ's. Nice middle of the day escape from work. Absolutely perfect, highlight of her trip here!
We are from out of town and were taken to the Jefferson by our daughter who is a graduate student at VCU. We had a phenomenal brunch! Not only is the hotel beautiful and stately, but the food was outstanding--all of it from the breakfast to lunch/dinner fare!! And our waitress Sheila couldn't have been any nicer or more accommodating! I would HIGHLY recommend this brunch! What a wonderful Richmond treasure!
The lunch portions were very small for the money. We ordered from the lunch selections, not small plate. Crabcake ws small, steak frites for $20 was overcookedand on a lunch plate of fries. No greens or veggies included. Food took iver 30 min to arrive and the resteraunt ws not full. Waitress was very sweet and did a great job.
Amazing. I've lived in Richmond for a few years now. The Jefferson's champagne brunch is legendary and for good reason! The food is delicious. The ambiance is sophisticated, historic, and unparalleled in Richmond. Excellent food, unlimited champagne and a great atmosphere. I absolutely can't wait to go again.
It was not crowded, quiet. Wait staff were excellent. Iliza was a very pleasant young lady. We enjoyed her service immensely. The food was marvelous. I enjoyed the comfortable chairs.
I love The Jefferson! My youngest daughter was married there 4/13. I celebrated my birthday there during Sunday brunch 2/26/17. We all had so much excellent food.
Have dined here before! This was not our best experience. Cold fried oysters on a caesar salad - really? that wasn't the only thing.. just a little disappointed but will come again but probably not on business. As it turned out the looooong lunch was a good thing for visiting with my associate. we were not in a hurry that day. Thank you for opportunity to vent.
Absolutely fantastic dining experience. Food, price, ambiance, service and value are top notch. Absolutely will return again. Waiter was attentive but not hovering. Food was magnificent and came out in excellent intervals. My party did not feel pushed in spite of our business meeting.
