After making the reservations months in advance, I was extremely disappointed with the Jefferson's Easter Brunch. First of all, I was directed to the mezzanine hostess who shuffled her papers for several minutes as if she didn't see our reservations. Then when seated at 1 pm (even though the room was empty--you weren't seated until the exact time). It took... More

I have been to several Sunday brunches. This one by far is the best to which I have been a part. The Rotunda, the balcony surrounding the huge Rotunda, and part of TJ's restaurant is set up for brunch guests. There are two parts of this brunch which are noteworthy. One side of the brunch consists of all of the... More

While the setting of the Rotunda, prominently featured in the photos, is even more spectacular in person, the food was not up to what was hoped. It was immense in variety, but short on flavor. Frankly, it was bland and boring. I know for a serve yourself buffet, excellence is difficult, but the Jefferson claims excellence as its expectation and... More

This is a brunch that you really want to be hungry when you arrive. The breakfast side of the brunch has omelets to order with fresh ingredients in addition to your standard potatoes, bacon, sausage, etc... There is a waffle and ice cream station. The lunch side of the buffet usually has a ham, prime rib, shell fish, salads, oysters,... More

First..very difficult or impossible to get reservations for two. The hotel is a destination worth the visit. Lobby is a great place to sit and enjoy the experience of a luxury hotel from the past. Brunch is extensive, starting with champagne. Food very good and well attended by extensive staff. Our table was serviced by two waiters who were most... More

When you can afford to dine here for Sunday Brunch, do it. The menu is ridiculous. The Jefferson is a whole other review. Special occasion for sure.

We really enjoyed visiting the Jefferson Hotel. Chose restaurant for the great reviews on the hamburgers, but the Breakfast menu won out with the Coconut French Toast and the omelets. Food was great as well as the service. Our waiter, Jonathan, was very informative about the history of the hotel and Richmond in general. Next time we visit Richmond we... More

A yearly tradition my family and I started a few years back and it never disappoints. The service is always outstanding as well as the atmosphere, and let's not forget the food! You will not leave hungry I promise! The coffee is by far the best I've had anywhere and who doesn't love mimosas? From omelettes to oysters and everything... More
