Julep's gets high praise and I expected better service and tastier fish. Our server was neither friendly nor helpful and the fish dish was just so so. The mint julep WAS yummy.

Friends took us here on New Year's eve for dinner while we were visiting town and we really enjoyed our meal. We started with the bacon wrapped scallops and the fried oyster appetizers. The fried oysters were a far more tasty choice. For dinner I had the New York strip which was cooked to perfection. The other meal of note... More

We found the dishes we ordered to be wonderful in presentation and taste. Our server, though, was less than enthusiastic or attentive and the portions were small. We needed to request another corn muffin. There are so many other great restaurants in Richmond that we will not be returning.

How can this be? I ate every scrap of everything. The fried green tomato and citrus salad starters; the perfectly cooked venison that, unlike most farm raised meats, actually had bags of flavor; the empty chocolate torte dessert plate (I normally hate chocolate torte); the excellent excellent service... Can't wait to come back.

Family and friends highly recommended Julep's, so I wanted to give it a try. Very happy I did. We started at the bar, and I had a great champagne cocktail, while my boyfriend enjoyed one of their signature julep's, which he enjoyed. We also really enjoyed our dinner from the food, to drinks, to service. We really felt that were... More

The food was fabulous and the service excellent. Tony was well informed about the selections available and was so much fun! If you are looking for a taste of new southern cuisine this is a restaurant that excels at providing a high quality meal.

Our hotel recommended Perly's but it was only 5pm when we left the hotel and decided to walk up Grace St looking at other restaurants and menus. We found several that would be ok, but I was looking for something special and we found it at Juleps. Quiet, white table cloths, wonderful food and excellent service. I ordered the shrimp... More

The Restaurant week special was the only thing you could get the evening we stopped for appetizers and drinks? Sad they would not accommodate at all. Fixed menus sometimes are good but not when it is not posted on a website. Oh well we missed their famous whatever.

Very enjoyable dinner. Here on business and looking for a good meal with nice atmosphere. Found it a Juleps. I had venison medallions with locally-sourced yam puree, followed with sour cherry pie. Cleaned both my plates. Service respectful and friendly. Quiet on a weekday evening. I'd go back.

Dropped in here for dinner during Restaurant Week, and glad we did. Impressed with the service and atmosphere at this upscale Southern cuisine restaurant. They accommodated our request for a window table, in a small section of the store near the bar. The larger area has booths with leather seats and high backs for a little bit of privacy. Music...
