Best RICHMOND VA restaurants for private dinner?

LuluProv Feb 16, 2009 05:21 AM

Hello - we are hosting a private dinner for 15 people in Richmond. Any thoughts on the best restaurants that offer fine dining and private rooms?

Right now, I've received suggestions for CanCan, Julep's and Sensi.

    CanCan does not have a private room and is VERY loud. I would recommend Sensi, but the main dining room, not their private room. It's quiet and the atmoshere is much nicer than their private dining room. Another suggestion would be Flemings Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar. Michelle directs their private dining and does a great job with functions such as you descrice.

      Can Can does have a private dining room down the hall past the restrooms. You might also try Morton's:

      all the steakhouses: buckhead's, copper grill, flemings ( as already mentioned) have them. hard shell has a bunch of different size rooms and a pretty "richmond" feel. i had a nice (but not spectacular) meal there a few years back. i think chez max has private rooms too - and its lovely. magianno's does (but it's obviously a chain).
