The atmosphere is very warm and inviting. The service from the bar to the wait staff was amazing. Plus the owner stopped by the table twice to check on us, nice touch! Now to the food. Every course was incredible! Seared tuna was delightful, Cowboy ribeye was amazing, and the stuffed salmon to die for! Very nice and varied wine list too! This place is a definite special occasion spot however I was from out of town and wanted to eat there. I highly recommend Bookbinder's!

The food was prepared perfectly and we always enjoy ourselves when we dine at Bookbinder’s. We started with 2 orders of the seared ahi and enjoyed our petite filets and bone-in ribeye. We ended with chocolate pate and crème brûlée. We were celebrating my son’s 16th birthday and it was a wonderful experience. Thank you so much for making his birthday special, Jonathan!!

This was the second time dining here for my wife and myself and I must say Bookbinder’s never fails to impress. The food was perfectly delicious, the complimentary champagne toast made our 7th wedding anniversary even more wonderful. The entire Bookbinder’s staff was great, in particular our server Patrice L. She was top-notch. It’s not very often that a server makes you feel like a friend that you’ve known all along. Bookbinder’s is our favorite restaurant and we look forward to our next visit.

Brought our family there for a celebration and they loved it! Us diehard New Yorkers were disappointed that the fried Calamari was way below par, this really surprised us. We were expecting this appetizer to be on the level of the entrées. Everything else was pricey but perfect!

This time was fine, however there were several significant missteps. We were sat immediately on our arrival in the lovely courtyard. There were 3 in our party, and a 4th place was set at our table. Typically at restaurants of this caliber, the 4th place setting would be removed by the host seating us. This did not happen, though later in the meal, our server removed it. We were warmly greeted by our server, and drink and food orders were placed. Our wine and appetizer were wonderful. However, after finishing our appetizer, the plate of empty oyster shells sat on our table until well after our entrees arrived, despite the fact that our server stopped to check on us, 3 runners delivered our entrees, and the owner stopped and talked to us for several minutes - 5 people and not a single one cleared the empty plate we were obviously finished with. This became especially problematic when our sharable sides were delivered, as the 4th place setting was still present along with the finished appetizer plate, so there was little room for the side dishes. Yet, no one took the unneeded items away. Overall, our food was excellent, as usual, with one exception. I ordered an add-on of scallops scampi. With my first bite, I discovered that the middle of the scallop was ice cold, practically frozen. I sent them back to the kitchen with our server, and the same scallops were returned later fully cooked (actually overdone). There was an apology, however we were charged for them on our bill at the end of the meal. For a restaurant that is known as one of the best special occasion restaurants in the city, this was not an ideal dining experience. We will likely be back. However, I hope that management and the owner read this review and correct the issues with service. At this price point, I expect better service than this.

In short (I’ll write a more detailed review for Google), a party of four, there to celebrate a birthday, the meal started off well. Cocktails and appetizers were done well, and the wine selection is what you would expect in a true steak and seafood house. Two people in the party ordered steaks and both were overdone. One person ordered medium rare and received medium well, the other person ordered medium and received well well well done. One cut in and both steaks were sent back immediately. This actually is not the reason for the low rating, what happened next is- a man, who I can only assume is a manager (had on a suit, shorter in stature, lots of black hair) brought the medium well steak back to the table with a new cut in it and asked my brother “you mean you want it cooked less than this?” To which he received a reply of “yes.” We were a bit shocked that he had the gall to do that for multiple reasons. Then when this same individual brought the new steaks out his tone when asking us to cut into the steaks was condescending. Words were fine, tone was not. It gets “better” this manager then makes comments about the initial steaks that were sent back, at that point I’d had enough. I simply said he ordered medium rare and received medium well, I ordered medium and received well done….maybe I shouldn’t have been surprised when this individual then makes more comments about the initial steaks…. I repeated myself verbatim. Here’s the thing, sometimes kitchens make a mistake. Just fix the mistake don’t try to push the mistake off to someone else… especially on a topic (steak temperatures) that is basically universal in the US. When the kitchen makes a mistake, just fix it versus making snide comments. To add insult to injury, my second steak was wrong, it was cooked rare… so I ate the edges and brought the rest home to cook myself.

The tuna appetizer was $15. Prices have just gotten to be ridiculous.

It appeared to me that Bookbinders is leveraging a rich history and namesake to justify over pricing decent food as if it's world class. My thought after getting our food was this is obnoxious. The $150 3.5 lb lobster was over cooked and stuck to the shell, my $85 steak was average and didn't come with a side, the creamed spinach tasted like something Paula Dean would make (just throw as much butter in as you can to mask it), the crème brulee was normal and nothing worth noting. The fried calamari and raw oysters were delicious but that's pretty hard to screw up. We all know there is a markup on wine, but to see a bottle over 3x the normal price from the store is insulting. Part of why we booked this reservation vs. other places was because of the option to sit outside. When I requested the reservation a week earlier, I also requested to sit outside. When we arrived we found that it wasn't an option due to a private party. The courteous thing to do would make us aware of this prior to arriving so we could decide whether we wanted to hold the reservation or not. Instead, we arrived to receive the news and were left with no option as we are from out of town and were stopping her before a concert so we didn't have time to go elsewhere. We were essentially forced to dine here despite being disappointed as soon as we walked in the door. Expecting to sit outside and then required to sit in the dark pub-like indoor dining area on a gorgeous May day was frustrating. My fiancé and I were in Richmond for a date weekend, and my expectation is that if you're willing to spend $500 on a meal for two you should be able to expect that you're going to be treated to a fine dining experience. Instead, at Bookbinders I felt they were telling me - "just be glad you're here" Paying for a Audi and receiving a Hyundai is quite disappointing so I recommend you spend your hard earned money somewhere that appreciates your patronage.
