Lemaire is considered one of Richmond’s most romantic, fine-dining restaurants. While the ambiance is fairly casual, the food is highly rated and among some of the city’s finest; proposals, anniversaries, birthday celebrations and other occasions take place on a nightly basis at the restaurant. Though Lemaire was revamped several years ago to bring a more casual and modern feel to the cuisine, the restaurant itself is decorated in an old Southern style, bringing a charming and romantic dichotomy to high-end Lemaire. High-quality, reasonably priced food is what makes Lemaire stand out — this is the kind of place that you can afford to order a second bottle of wine at dinner on that oh-so-special date.
