    My husband and I dined at Lillie Pearl last weekend to celebrate our anniversary. We had a wonderful experience. The food, service, and atmosphere were top notch. Every single dish was cooked to perfection. Our waiter was friendly and attentive and the music they played was a whole vibe. Highly recommend. We can’t wait to go back!

    Great service

    Collard Greens were sweet which was surprising. Never had them like that. Didn’t care for it.

    Made a reservation for birthday celebration and waitress didn’t acknowledge.

    Very surprised

    Dined at Lillie Pearl for my birthday dinner with family.

    The server was perfectly attentive.

    For appetizers, we ordered the wedge salad, Brussels sprouts, and short rib egg rolls.

    For entrees, 4 of us ordered the braised short ribs, 1 of us the fried chicken, and 1 other ordered the chicken wings.

    For dessert, we ordered the candied walnut banana pudding, limoncello cake, bread pudding, and pumpkin praline cheesecake.

    Everything was cooked to perfection and deliciously flavored. The drinks were great, too!

    Looking forward to going back!

    My only complaint is that the food was SO good, we completely forgot to take pictures as we savored our dinner. We enjoyed short rib egg rolls (try that green sauce), beet & burrata salad, lobster + shrimp + grits and the smothered pork chop (perfectly cooked btw). We chose the “Attitude” Pinot Noir but would also recommend the Sauvignon Blanc by the same wine maker for these dishes. Stuffed, but tempted, we gave in and fell completely in love with the peach cobbler bread pudding.. OMG! We’ll be back to Lillie Pearl!

    Best food I’ve had in a year since leaving Chicago!! Really impressed.

    I would love for the atmosphere to have been a little more lush (it was more reminiscent of upscale fast food than of a nice restaurant), but the food (and music) made up for it.

    Very disappointed in how i was treated at the bar this evening. The atmosphere was great! I was excited to have a bite to eat and a cocktail before I attended an event near by.

    I walked up to the bar and had a seat. There were 2 couples and a single person already seated and eating. The bartender literally ignored me. I was seated directly in in front of him and he never acknowledged my existence. I then gave him the benefit of the doubt even though his behavior was blatant. And requested a menu after 5-6 minutes of waiting. He gave me one and then continued to wash dishes in front of me and take other orders.

    Never offered me a water…inquired if I wanted to order anything from the menu he just gave me. And after 10 more minutes of being ignored I decided to take my business elsewhere. I guess one customer was a burden for him.

    Exceptional. The smoked chicken wings were very crispy and flavorful. My fried chicken was perfect, and the honey/hot sauce pairing was delicious. I ordered a side of the Jollof rice which I would also recommend. I don’t eat collards often, but those seemed great as well.

    I really enjoyed the Lillie Pearl. It is a laid back atmosphere with high end service and food. The crab cakes were made with more crab than filler. The smoked wings are in my top 3 I’ve ever tasted, the mash potatoes rival my recipe and the brussel sprouts are definitely from grandma kitchen. This place has tapped a really nice recipe book with a chef that can certainly execute in the kitchen.

    Simply superb! The food was delicious! Portions and flavor were amazing! The staff and atmosphere made my birthday night out with my husband extra special. New favorite spot in downtown Richmond and will absolutely return.

    We started with the brussel sprouts. I had the salmon with a side of mac and cheese. My husband had the fried chicken with mashed potatoes. We ended with the peach cobbler bread pudding. Loved every bite!

    The play list was excellent as was the bar tender.

    All around great experience.

    I dont think many of my reviews for food has ever been 5. I invited some folks from out of town to have lunch here (they were from Texas, Georgia and Colorado). They were here for a week with work and wanted to get to some of the best restaurants Richmond had. Several had never been to Richmond. I made a list and this was one of them. I had been once or twice before years ago. We ordered the lobster and crab sandwich. I and they were blown away, so much so they went again and got the same thing. The Mac and Cheese was superb too. Hats off Lillie Pearl, hats off, well done!

    Amazing experience. I was highly impressed. We had a bit of a larger party and the staff were very accommodating. The service was great and our drinks were always full. Although a bit more on the pricey side, the quality of the food is worth the price. I ate the Lillie burger, Mac and cheese, fries, and the smoked wings. Each plate was well made and flavorful. My friends had the other entrees and each dish was made almost to perfection. This is one of those restaurants that makes you sad you are not a local.
    I could not recommend this place more!!!

    Omg! My first visit with friends was for Sunday bunch on 9/10/2023. Sorry no pictures. I had chicken and waffle meal, scramble egg with cheese and fried potatoes. My waiter was names Case. He was awesome. He made suggestive meals and really know the menu well.

    He checked on us but not to worrisome and made sure we were comfortable and satisfied with our meals.I recommend Lillie Pearl to anyone. I will be returning.

    The small problem I had was the biscuits with jam and butter I got as an appetizer. The biscuits were a little bit flat than what I’m used to so if they could be a little more fluffier then that will help. Other than that try it for yourself. Oh and the music was on point with the 80s and 90s flashback of how it was in my day. LOL!!

My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and this place provided quite a beautiful ambiance. The food was delicious, creative and flavorful. The lighting and music was nice. I would come back and try more dishes. We started out with the short rib egg rolls, I had a wedge salad, my husband had the shrimp and grits, and we finished with the bread pudding. Delicious!

    Visiting from ATL, restaurant-hopping in RVA, we made reservations at Lillie Pearl for dinner Saturday night. Despite somewhat of an “unwelcome“ greeting by the host and manager, we were able to salvage our evening anchored by a truly elevated dining experience. We ended up sitting at the bar but thoroughly enjoyed the service Zach provided. The food totally lives up to expectations.

    I’ll start with positive. The space is SO CUTE! Fun music and atmosphere. The service was ok. Bar was busy so he wasn’t really helpful or attentive. They definitely need to add a service bartender on the weekends. The food…. So I got the chicken. I was skeptical when I read that it was a chicken breast…and rightfully so. It was sooo dry in some places and juicy in others. Flavorful though! The mashed potatoes were definitely not creamy, after couple minutes they solidified. Really bad first visit 😢

    First, let me say, this is where you will want to peruse the dessert menu before you choose a meal. We ordered every dessert for a party of eight, and we all agreed, every single dessert was stellar!!
    As we arrived for brunch, we were welcomed by a friendly hostess with a charming demeanor.
    We ordered their hamburger, salads, and BLTs. The BLTs were enjoyed with enthusiastic reviews from members of our party. Days later, they were still talking about the abundance and flavor of the bacon in their sandwich.
    I had their buger. It was flavorful, tender, and juicy. It’s probably one of the best hamburgers I have ever ordered.
    The ambiance was very comfortable, well styled, and the music was fantastic. At times, I caught myself tapping my toe to the music.
    The entire experience was wonderful on every level.
    Thank you for sharing your talent and dedication with all of us.
    Bravo, Lillie Pearl!!

    Next, I’m looking forward to taking in your steakhouse!

    As a true southern who grew up on macaroni and cheese at many church dinners. I can honestly say this is the best macaroni and cheese I have ever eaten out. The Mac and cheese rivals my wife’s homemade from the church cook book. The OG chicken sandwich was cooked perfectly. The batter was crisp and flavorful and not too thick. The chicken was moist on the inside and had a great flavor. Dessert what can I say. They are known for the banana pudding, which is out of this world. However. If the peach cobbler bead pudding is on the menu get it. It is wonderful.

    Fathers day weekend treat for my Honey! He picked well. We’ve driven past Lillie Pearl and there was always a nice crowd. They’ve earned it!! From the greeting at the door, to the service at the table, everything was as pleasant as the surroundings. We ordered the scallops and the steak. They were so good we didn’t speak, and we talk all the time!! The elderflower lemonade was incredible. Refreshing, deeply lemony but not super tart nor sweet. Almost too pretty to drink! The scallops were cooked perfectly and sat atop a bed of faro with fava beans. I don’t have words for how good it was! Honey had the steak with potato salad and a sweet pea salsa. He is a picky eater and he was very happy! Mission Accomplished!!
    With all the choices around RVA, Lillie Pearl is really special!

  63. Nadra Williams 2023/10

    I’ve had the dinner and lunch menu and both were really good. I had the chicken sandwich, baked Mac and Cheese, with fries from the lunch menu. The chicken was juicy, crispy on the outside, and delicious. As a person who is very picky about their ranch, I can truthfully say the buttermilk ranch on the sandwich was amazing as well. Everything was well-seasoned. I had the seared salmon, baked Mac, and mashed potatoes from the dinner menu. The salmon was cooked well and the mashed potatoes were creamy. The drinks are good as well!! My only complaint is that the dining area is a bit too dark during dinner but that’s literally it. I would highly recommend!

    We were visiting from out of town & were in search of a great place for dinner. My husband did some research & picked Lillie Pearl. I asked friends & family who live in RVA about it & they had never heard of it. Their loss! We had a FABULOUS meal – the service, atmosphere & everything about Lillie Pearl is awesome! We started with the Brussel sprouts – soooo good! Then my husband & I split the Lobster Crab Cakes – so good! My niece had the wedge salad with grilled chicken – it was huge but she said she could not stop eating it because it was so delicious! We also got the Hopping John & French fries for us to split – all delicious! We split the special dessert – a blueberry cheesecake – AMAZING!
    We cannot recommend Lillie Pearl highly enough! Thank you for a wonderful evening!

    Ordered on Grubhub. The restaurant cancelled half of my order because they “don’t do chicken at night” I called and the guy who answered the phone was extremely rude – he said “they called me” – they didn’t. The food got here and tasted like terrible. Burger was dry and food was cold. 0/10 do not recommend. Legit threw out the food that showed up. Stay away. Looks pretty. Looks can be deceiving and the food that did show up ended up in the trash. Pizza rolls it is!

    I was visiting Richmond for a quick work trip, Lillie Pearl was highly recommended… The recommendation was spot on!!! Starting with the BRILLIANT AND FRIENDLY Bartender Xantia, The Fried Brussel Sprouts were amazing with a nice spicy kick. Followed that with the braised Lamb Shank made with a West African tomato and bell pepper sauce! This made my tastebuds extremely happy!!!

    The Lillie Pearl is a must try when in Richmond, VA.!!! Cheers 🍻

    My experience was a very good one. My co-workers stopped in for lunch. Upon arrival, the staff was pleasant. Our food was served in a great time frame. I can’t remember the name of our waitress, a young dark brown-skinned African American woman; she was VERY sweet & patient. She’s the PERFECT example of how waiters & waitresses should be.

    I got the Lobster & Crab crab cake sandwich, with a side of Fried Brussel Sprouts. Both were very good.

We had the Short Rib Burrito, Fried Chicken & French Toast, Salmon w/Grits and Shrimp w/Grits. Can’t forget the Collards … no meat and stewed tomatoes were UBERLICIOUS. 10’s, 10’s, 10’s across the board

    Had dinner here randomly while visiting from DC and it was so good that we came back for dinner the next night too. Greatly enjoyed the short ribs, pork chops, cauliflower, and brussel sprouts over the two nights. Tasted great, good portions, and generally a very pleasant vibe (relaxed upscale). Peach cobbler dessert was also excellent. Only miss were the short rib egg rolls, which would have worked well for happy hour but were a little heavy as an appetizer for dinner and weren’t as flavorful as I was expecting.

    We lucked out and got a reservation minutes before we got there and then was told this never happens on Fridays or Saturdays. The atmosphere is quiet, comfortable, and casual. The service is present without feeling overbearing. We never felt pestered or hovered over, but also never felt wanting for anything. The food came quickly and was absolutely amazing. Most recommended dish is byyyy faaarrrr the lobster, shrimp and grit but the fried chicken and braised short ribs were also phenomenal. Overall, it was an excellent experience and worth every penny.

    The interior is well done: high ceilings, with a combination of brick and wood on the walls. The atmosphere was lively with good music. The open kitchen was a little distracting because this working kitchen did not seem meant to be a showcase. As for the food, something was a bit off with the dishes: the fries were a bit soggy; the greens overpowered the short ribs in the spring rolls; the mac and cheese was a bit congealed and needed more creaminess. Overall it was slightly disappointing.

    We went to Lillie Pearl for lunch to celebrate our private nuptials this past Saturday and let me tell y’all…. they had me in tears from their service AND their food. Ahemmm JOYFUL tears.

    We ordered their roasted carrots for an appetizer along week their Moscow Mules to start. My husband ordered the Deli Club sandwich and I got the Smashville Fried Chicken Sandwich. We both got the fries then realized we needed a side of Mac n Cheese to go as well. We finished off with Millie’s Banana Pudding. When I say everything was delicious, I mean we gobbled it ALL. We didn’t get to eat it all in one sitting but you better believe we asked what heated best and followed instructions for an amazing meal the next day.

    Everything was timed perfectly, there was no rush despite us getting there closer to the end of their lunch (they close at 2:30pm to turnover for dinner). Everyone was sweet, absolutely lovely, and patient. We told them about how we just got married and they brought out champagne for us to celebrate! We thanked our servers and the kitchen staff since you can see them right through their window making all the food. Absolutely amazing people and food!

    Last bit: we ordered from them in April on DoorDash since we needed a meal as we were moving into our new home. Y’all, this food traveled 20+ minutes to get to us and it STILL tasted fantastic. 20/10 highly recommend!

    Disclosure: I like to eat.

    Started with the heirloom carrots. They were cooked perfectly al dente with a delicious sauce. Crunchy, savory, earthy, and sweet.

    For the main course; Braised short rib, squash, and risotto with an additional side of Hoppin John. Each item was complex on its own and all cooked perfectly. Each had intense flavor, but not overbearing. Each side was able to stand up to each other while complimenting them as well. The squash was tender and the pearl onions gave a nice pop. The risotto was creamy and the greens within melted right in. The Hoppin John Def had a kick, but the kind of heat that leaves you wanting another bite. The braised short ribs were fantastic, the sear stayed on the meat after the braise and the marbled fat was melted into the rib. To top it off, just for the challenge to finish it and knowing the peach cobbler bread pudding was going to be amazing, I went for it. The bread was crispy on the outside and held its form after being doused in peaches and heavenly caramel and icing.

    The service was friendly and prompt. They also had a non-alcoholic IPA (athletic brewing) that was a nice surprise as it is my favorite and tastes like an IPA.

    The vibes with R&B music and friendly chatter created an ambiance of comfort all around.

    I have not had a meal this good at a restaurant anywhere in a very long time. I would recommend Lillie Pearl to anyone, even if they don’t eat enough for two by themselves…

    Well, I had to be objective with this review. This was my first visit to the restaurant. I was invited by the person I was meeting. I was unaware that reservations were required for lunch. The owner asked me about reservations, and when trying to explain the situation, he was somewhat short. However, the host resolved the situation, and the experience from there was absolutely wonderful.

    Our server was phenomenal, the food was amazingly good, and the atmosphere was inviting.

    We highly recommend Lillie Pearl.

    Velvety Bacon Shallot cream sauce on a Thick tender pork chop is the stuff dreams are made of! The Hoppin John (sp?) portion size too small at this price point…but the flavors complimented the chop perfectly smoky, spicy beans and fluffy ( not overcooked) rice was CRAZY 😜. The memory of the seasonings remained on my tongue long after the bite. Just Heavenly!

    On to the cons, the beet fig sauce they sent with the cauliflower was rancid ( smelled spoiled) and exploded on my hands as I tried to open it, ☹️Thankfully that chop was so good I could forgive that BUT THEN I had to finish cooking and preparing my cauliflower. I can say the flavors presented were nice, but the decision to serve it whole was a bad idea, not enough surface area available to complete the roasting and then you’re also eating a bunch of woody stalk. And lastly the hopping John should be served in a separate container it appeared to have been thrown in the box, a bit messy for such an elegant meal. Minus the mishaps this meal was Enjoyable!

Strongly recommend! Smashville sandwich was so well seasoned and crispy, 10 out of 10. Cocktails are also amazing!

    I have been wanting to try this spot out for a long time. I heard great reviews. And I have to say this place delivered on the awesome southern flavors. They had unique cocktails and the appetizer we got was delicious. Short ribs eggs rolls. They give generous portions. I had to take mine home. My friend did complain that her crab cake was too salty. I couldn’t try it because of my seafood allergy. I thought the fries were too salty as well which is why I couldn’t give 5 stars. But my dish was cooked to my tastes. No complaints. They have the best baked Mac and Cheese I’ve tasted in a restaurant in a long time. But the absolute star of the night was the peach cobbler bread pudding. It was delicious 😋. It was the thing I kept hearing about and was most excited to taste and it was sweet heaven. I devoured it. Don’t like bread pudding really but this almost tasted like donuts. It was so good. The venue has great vibes, high ceilings and Big plus was the Afrobeats playing in the background. Love to see representation for my 🇳🇬 folks. I definitely recommend checking this spot out if you are in the area.

    Great food overall. The vibe here is great the music is fantastic and the service is wonderful. The BLT Is a major go, so are the brussel sprouts and the chicken. I wasn’t a fan of the spare rib burrito I was expecting the meat to be grilled and not slow cooked. That’s on me I should have asked. Overall 5 stars. This is a gem. I’ll have to come back to get the banana dessert.

    My son and his girlfriend just moved to Richmond 3 minutes from Lillie Pearl and I would have to say it was hands down the best brunch I’d ever had. That fried chicken and bread pudding French toast was AMAZING. The vibe and environment was 2 thumbs up. Definitely a top choice for us when visiting my son. 👍🏾👍🏾⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Go in last night at 7:45-8, I ask for a table. Host, young guy with long curly hair says it’ll be a 30 min wait, takes my phone number, so he can let me know when the table was ready. It is 10 am, still waiting for that call. Luckily Tarrants Cafe is always reliable or I’d still be waiting. I’ll never waste my time at an establishment like that again!

Only issue was when I walked in at 10:58am for an 11:00am group lunch, the entire staff turned and stared at me and then I was told they weren’t open yet and I had to leave. It was uncomfortable to say the least. Not to mention that we were told 11am was the only time they could accommodate a lunch party of 10…and we were the only other patrons from 11am-11:45. I do think they could have scheduled us for 11:30am very easily. Strange. But, as I said, the food is outstanding

    Made reservations here for my 50th birthday brunch. Emailed them a month out asking for patio reservations because we were planning on having a dog with us, never received a message back. We changed our plans after no return email to the online reservation system which required a 10.00 per person deposit. Paid the deposit. When we arrived, they played like they didn’t know who we were. Then they said we have you on the patio. When asked why they said its because we requested the patio. Yes….originally with no email confirmation. So we left the dog at home. They said they were packed with large parties the rest of the day. So, we ate on the patio. Took 20 minutes to receive our drinks, 45 mins to receive our food. Not the birthday brunch I was expecting or desired. I wouldnt go back.

I don’t think the appetizer choices are good and probably wouldn’t recommend due to the price.

    Shared an amazing dinner here with friends. All of the staff’s recommendations were delicious and worth the visit. We started off with a few apps; roasted heirloom baby carrots and the short rib egg rolls, both of which were loaded with flavor.

    Next up were the main entrees; smothered pork chop and the braised short ribs. The pork had a perfect fusion of savory and spiced heat. The braised short ribs were very tender, well seasoned, and paired well with the collard greens risotto and roasted veggies.

    Lastly were the desserts; peach cobbler bread pudding and limoncello cake. Both were over the top delicious and a perfect way to top off the evening.

    Don’t hesitate to drop in for a meal if you’re in the area, you won’t regret it.

    #1…Get. A. Reservation.
    Saw at least half a dozen parties turned away because of no reservations.

    The food is very food. I’d call it ‘upscale southern comfort food’.
    For a starter, just get the fried Brussels sprouts! It was our table of four’s favorite part of the dinner. Dipped in teriyaki, deep fried, and covered in a spicy ranch. For real, I’d never think of that combo.
    I’ve always loved fried chicken and shrimp and grits, they do both dishes well. The Mac and cheese is great for what it is (cream, cheese, noodle). Rockfish dish was cooked to perfection.
    Service all around great.

I ordered the shrimp and grits without sausage, when it arrived it had sausage the waitress was apologetic and explained it was her fault. No problem, it happens! My friend order the sear rock fish and it was dry. The host came out to apologize for my food and asked my friend how was his and he expressed that it was dry her tone quickly changed as if she was irritated. She then asked why are you eating it then. Once my food arrived shrimp and grits were just okay. I really wish we could’ve had a 4 or 5 star experience like I was hoping.

    Life be life-ing and Lillie Pearl knows how to pivot!!
    Thank youuuu.
    The hubs and I had a date night for dinner at Lillie Pearl fir the 1st time last night and we were told their fryers were unfortunate down.

    With that unconvenience they offered a supplemental menu which DID NOT DISAPPOINT.

    There were numerous options and the flavors, the proportions allowed us to have an ah-mazing evening AND my hubs had the pleasure of trying a black-owned whiskey company for the 1st time and he was highly satisfied.

    Shout out to Uncle Nearest and Lillie Pearl for creating a dope and vibes date night.

    Thank you and I can’t wait to return.

    Until next time💜

    I had been encouraged by the high ratings and the inventive menu items and was looking forward to this meal. But my evening was basically ruined by the interminable wait for the food. When it finally arrived, the crispy skin salmon was one of the better salmon dishes we’d ever had. But the pricier lobster shrimp and grits were too salty and wasn’t a terribly big portion. Neither dish came with sides and I was still hungry. Oh well, more room for dessert, right? How hard is it to bring out dessert? We waited, and waited. My wife gave up and went back to the hotel. After 30 minutes, I finally canceled my order and left the place hungry and miserable. They should be happy I gave them three stars.

    Everything about this place is fantastic. The beer selection, the cocktails, the service, the food. We were very well tended to without feeling rushed or smothered. The brussel sprouts appetizers and a side of corn mash makes a great meal all in itself. Collard greens are meatless and delicious. I think they had jackfruit pieces in them as mock meat. There is literally something here for people of all dietary restrictions, and the atmosphere is so relaxed yet still sophisticated. Our server was “Cat”. She was awesome. I will be returning.

    Wow, what a meal!!

    This place is absolutely delicious. We had the short ribs and the fried chicken. Every detail was perfect. The collards, risotto, etc. The chicken was so juicy and perfectly seasoned but not greasy. The short ribs were so tender and flavorful.

    Dessert of banana pudding tasted so homemade and sumptuous.

    Highly recommend but make a reservation, we made one just to be careful even though it was a Monday night and we didn’t think they’d be busy but they were so I’m glad we did!

    Service was great as well.

She had the fried chicken entree that came with mashed potatoes and collard greens and it rendered her speechless. I had the crispy skin salmon which was cooked to perfection and plated beautifully. The Peach Cobbler Bread Pudding was a hit! This was my second visit and I cannot wait to come back.

    I stopped by for a quick meal before heading home. I dined by myself and the service and food was divine. I was on the phone with my bestfriend and told them when they visit VA they have to come here because everything was 10/10.. The drink [can’t remember the name] was refreshing and tasty. It wasn’t a heavy alcoholic beverage which I enjoyed. Now them Short Rib Spring Rolls 😍😍😍 I could eat that over and over and over again soooo savory and tasty. I don’t have enough words to describe it.

    The Spicy Chicken sandwich and fries were amazing as well. I didn’t finish all of it so I took it and my boyfriend finished the rest of it and he even said it was delicious and wants to explore the menu when we return. 👍🏾👍🏾

    Looked like it might be better when we had more time, like at supper time.

    Would return – but not at lunch with a short time to enjoy.

    Yall right now all I had was the smoked chicken wings and hoooooooot damn! The chef didn’t have to make these wings this good. Damn! I’m super excited to eat my entrée now. I can’t wait to get my food so I can write another review.

    Update:
    The food was amazing! I got the smothered porkchop 🤤. The Hoppin John was perfect and the Mac and cheese was 😍. I recommend this place to anyone. They have such a vibe going on with the music and the atmosphere. Yall, even the water slap. Case our server was amazing as well. Can’t wait to come back.

    Had a great dinner here. The service was great and the food was very good as well. Highly recommend the Brussels sprouts and the grits.

    Docking a star for two reason:
    1. The setup is a little odd, with lots of open space which can be nice but in this case made it feel pretty empty?
    2. More importantly, we order our steak medium but it was the rarest meat I’ve ever been served, and it seems this is a pattern here. They gotta figure out their cook times for steak.

    Food was alright. The rib egg rolls were delicious… the shrimp, lobster, and grits-salty, and the side of fries were way too salty. Smothered porkchops could have used more season.

    Arrived at this restaurant at 1:15pm for two ppl on Saturday was turned away and told it was due to them having a reservation for 1pm,1:30, and 2pm take note they close at 2:30pm. There were plenty of tables and instead of trying to be accommodating the hostess proceeded to direct us to other surrounding restaurants. If we wanted to go to another restaurant Ma’am then we would’ve stopped on the cold walk up the block to get there. This is the second time trying to support this place and i’m good i’ll take my money elsewhere. Humbleness can go a long way!

    Brussels we’re amazing. We got 2 dinner plates, braised short ribs and fried chicken. Braised short ribs were perfectly rich, flavorful, and in good quantity. The risotto it was served with was creamy and perfectly done. Fried chicken was also perfectly cooked, and the collards seasoned and braised well. No clear winner in the dinner competition that night. All were great! Music was on point too.

    The food at Lillie Pearl was good (4.5). We ordered the smoked chicken wings, braised short ribs (w/ collard green risotto (my favorite), and macaroni n cheese), striped bass in lobster bisque w/ macaroni n cheese, and the fried peach cobbler bread pudding (my other favorite). The atmosphere was laid back with modern, rustic, masculine decor. The kitchen was viewable and the service was great. Read the owner’s story on their website and you’ll know why the food was farm-to-table fresh and delicious. 4.8 stars 🌟

    The atmosphere in the place in the place was great! Yes, the food was AMAZING! And the service was top-notch! (Shout out to Lulu 🩷) But what truly stood out to me was how spaced out the tables were. I loved that I felt I could still have a private conversation there. That made things feel cozy and intimate. It was a special time 😊

    Side note: the carrot cake was nutty and rich and good overall, but it was really sweet and I couldn’t finish it.

    The reason why I didn’t give 5 stars , the lobster and crab sandwich was missing the lobster, and the French fries arrived cold. I sampled my dining companion’s collard greens, delicious. I will be returning.

    Great food and service our server Naji was great! He got our drink in record timing and kept us hydrated the entire meal. We ordered the striped bass and it was enough for two. We also had the wings and short rib egg rolls for appetizers they were great but beware to get the sauce on the side if you don’t like spicy (Naji was hospitable enough to tell us this in advance.) I highly recommend this place if you are in RVA.

    We arrived about 12:10 pm. We were able to park nearby. We didn’t have reservations and there were no tables available, so we were seated right away at the bar. The seating there was actually good for bar seating, but fortunately someone canceled their reservation and we were moved to a table. The waitress was very pleasant and efficient. We were brought water, coffee, and tea right away.
    For starters we shared the short ribs egg rolls. They were crispy and filled with good things; collards, carrots, pimento cheese, onions and a tasty basil sauce. For our entrees I had the Fried Chicken Sandwich with the spicy honey on the side and French fries. My husband had the Smashville fried chicken sandwich with fries. We both enjoyed them and were surprised that they could be so crispy yet so tender. He finished his but I had half of mine boxed to go. Because this was our first time here we wanted to get the full experience so we ordered desert. I ordered Peach Cobbler Bread Pudding and he ordered Banana Pudding. We intended to eat it there but after we had waited about 30 minutes and it hadn’t come, we decided to get it to go. We waited about another 10 minutes before we got it. the waitress apologized several times for the long wait for desert. It was a holiday and they were short of staff so I’m not holding the wait against them. Once we got home my Peach cobbler bread pudding was still warm and it was delectable. His banana pudding was still cold and very good. Overall it was a very good dining experience. I will recommend it and will definately be returning.

    Delicious food and service was great. Upon entering the place there was a smell that didn’t rub me the right away and the kitchen was very very messy. The food however was AMAZING. We had egg rolls, brussel sprouts, pork belly. For entree I had the shrimp and lobster grits and it was unbelievable. Packed with large shrimp and lobster chunks, the grits were well cooked and cheesy. Dessert – peach cobbler – was more like a bread pudding with peach than a cobbler itself, so it was ok but not super duper.
    I had the lemongrass margarita but I would expect it to be more spiced than what it was.

    The website is more welcoming and home feeling than the actual establishment. I thought I was going to a soul food restaurant but my expectations weren’t met. There were no bold flavors at all. I had the shrimp and grits…now that I’m home having a bit of stomach cramps because the menu doesn’t tell you that the sausage used is pork. That’s an issue. Understandable it may be a staple in the dish but it should be listed on the menu. I came with a few others and we could all agree that there was a lot missing from the atmosphere and the flavors in the food. Keeping things politically correct the food was gentrified – just subpar. So much that I didn’t even want to try their dessert options. First and last time coming.

    I took my family here for New Year’s Day brunch. At first I was a little disappointed with the small menu, but then I realized that everything looked good! The five of us wound up ordering 4 of the 6 brunch items, and everyone cleaned their plates. The stand-out was the bread pudding french toast, which was absolutely melt-in-your-mouth, as it was actually left to soak in the batter instead of just dipped.

    The atmosphere and attentive service were GREAT!! For dinner, I had the shrimp and grits as well as heirloom carrots with goat or feta cheese drizzled in this amazing sauce. Initially, I wanted the salmon, but they were sold out. The shrimp and grits were savory but served lukewarm. I decided to give them another try with brunch. The peach cobbler French toast was good, but I felt like something was missing from the ingredients, The eggs were cooked too hard for my liking, and they were served room temperature…YUCK!! I requested Spiked coffee, which h was not on the menu, and now I see why, it was also served lukewarm, and it was not sweet or savory at all which was very disappointing to me. If the food was served hot and not lukewarm and if they add adult coffees to their menu, I would’ve given 5 stars. Maybe I will give them another try with my fingers crossed!

The owner was kind enough to come talk to us and share his story, super friendly guy! For dinner I ordered the fried chicken and OMG! The best fried chicken I’ve ever had, it came with mashed potatoes, collard greens and an amazing spicy honey sauce to drizzle over the chicken. We left stuffed and very happy!

    I wanted to love this place, as it came highly recommended, but our birthday dinner experience fell a little short in a number of ways.

    First, the positives. Everything to come out of the kitchen and bar were pretty solid. I had the fried chicken entree, with sides of “charred” corn mash and collards. The flavors were there. I can see why people like this place. The collards were really great, nice and vinegary with the right amount of spice. The mash was kind of one note, and the corn certainly wasn’t charred, but it was fine. The chicken, while great flavor-wise, was a little unexpected due to it being boneless. Every Southern place I’ve been to has advertised boneless chicken if that’s how it’s served. But that’s nitpicking. The flavors were on point, and both the hot honey and hot sauce it came with were excellent. The cocktail I ordered also nicely complemented the flavors on my plate. We ended with the peach cobbler bread pudding, served warm, which was subtly sweet and delicious.

    Now, the negatives. This dinner was a celebration, and we’d booked the reservation at least a month in advance due to high marks from peers. We specifically CHOSE to come here, but once we were there, we didn’t feel very welcome. We got seated in by far the worst table in the joint (right in front of the host stand and adjacent to both the bar and a somewhat loud six top). Our server, whose name I didn’t catch, was a ghost. He did the bare minimum to get through a dinner service. No attempts to engage in conversation, hardly ever checked on us, and we felt simultaneously neglected and rushed. I know it can be busy with a six top also sat, but every table is important. Even when I mentioned we were celebrating, there was no further comment. Just didn’t really feel like they wanted us there. Also, there was an upcharge on our bill for a side swap that we were not made aware of. Certainly would’ve been nice to know. I wouldn’t have minded as much if we’d been warned.

    I’d go back for the food, but for a place this highly regarded I expected more.

    This is a super nice joint with fantastic staff and mood. Seemingly full bar and of course top notch food. Short-rib with collared greens risotto and root veg was delicious but over seasoned which dented the experience a tiny bit, and similar could be said regarding the ferocious amount of cinnamon on the peach cobbler. And yet still completely brilliant.

    Everything about our recent experience at LP was excellent…Menu is a great offering of updated comfort foods…the fried brussel sprouts should NOT be missed! The short rib Egg Rolls were a favorite of all three of us. Fried Chicken substitution on the Wedge Salad was “no problem” (and was delicious!)…Crispy Skin Salmon was my wife’s (Birthday Girl!) favorite preparation of the dish in her recent memory. Naji was our server and couldn’t have been more professional and attentive. And any place that would have Frankie Beverly & Maze as background music cements the 5 star status! We took the Banana Pudding and Peach Cobbler home for the next day…oh so tasty, too. We all commented that the ambiance would be decidedly improved by making the lighting a bit dimmer and adding some acoustic elements for more of a desirable “dinner conversation hum”. Great Food, Great Service and Great Experience!

    The dining experience was pleasant. We were promptly greeted and by the host for our New Years Day reservation. The ambiance and music is great. The brunch menu options were limited and I was underwhelmed by the choices. I ordered the chicken sandwich and collards (a bit more seasoning). The food was tasty, but didn’t fully meet my expectations. I plan to try the restaurant again for dinner as it doesn’t score well for brunch.

    Had a lovely brunch yesterday! A pitcher of mimosas to start, there wasn’t a flat seating of the restaurant but we all seemed to place our orders at the same time. Our server was very communicative of the ticket time which was awesome, I always appreciate that when there’s a bit of a wait! We thought with a small brunch menu it would be easier to pick but it still was hard! I had the Chicken & French Toast. Would definitely go back.

    Lillie Pearl is my favorite brunch spot. My favorite thing to order is the peach cobbler bread pudding french toast with chicken. The short rib egg rolls and smoked chicken wings are awesome. My only gripe is that the appetizer portions are tiny for the price.

    2nd time here, each time has been wonderful. We always come during brunch, so it’s a fifty fifty if we will get a table or eat at the bar. Both times have been at the bar, but Zack does a great job making sure those drinks come and the service is great! Today I asked Zack to make me a non alcoholic sweet drink, not only did he with a smile, Zack made two because he didn’t like the color of the other one!? Both the drinks were phenomenal, have no idea what was in them but they were really good. For brunch we started with the short rib egg rolls, then I had the Little Burger for brunch it was awesome. Couldn’t finish it all cuz I was full from the egg rolls. So I took it home with me. Definitely going to come back!!

    The food was absolutely wonderful. There are lots of places where you are told to go for brunch and the food was only so-so. Not here. You definitely need a reservation so don’t just show up thinking you’ll get in. I was with a large group and the server was very attentive. I never felt like we were being neglected. Wonderful place. Wonderful food. Recommend the Cheddar Biscuits. Wonderful staff. Highly recommend. Only negative is that they presalt their eggs, and probably their greens. Totally unnecessary.

The food and mimosas were great and All of the staff was very friendly.

    This restaurant was a huge disappointment as I have only heard rave reviews from others who have been. We went for lunch and sat outside. The ambience of being outdoors on a nice day and the short rib egg rolls were the only redeeming points in the experience. Service was friendly but slow and forgetful. At one point my friend had to go inside and bring our appetizer plates that were promised to us and never appeared after the appetizer came. I always try to be understanding about staffing these days as I know this is a challenge many restaurants face, but there was no shortage of servers inside when I went in to the restroom. We all ordered salads as we were not in the mood for heavy meals and the options for lunch were salads or heavy sandwiches. The sandwiches and other apps surrounding tables got looked great so perhaps we ordered wrong, but if you’re going to offer 3 entree salads they ought to be good. Instead they were full of heavily dressed, old, wilted romaine lettuce mix that presumably came out of a bag. My friends ordered beet and burrata that was missing elements from the menu. One ordered with salmon that was maybe cooked for 1 minute on each side as it was raw inside. She asked for it to be cooked more and it reappeared 20 minutes later. Will never go back for lunch, would possibly go back for dinner as the menu looks less limited but was really expecting more from this restaurant.

    My party of 3 had a reservations for 7:30pm this passed Monday….not only were we ignored for quite some time before we saw a waiter who advised us that he was unable to bring our water because there weren’t any clean glasses or available silverware at that time…we then placed our dinner orders to only receive a salad minus anything to eat it with…we request to speak with the manager again waiting for a while his response was that a large party is occupying the silverware and majority of the menu…so dinner never arrived and this spot is a DEFINITE NO NEVER EVER!!!

    My partner and I first had Lillie Pearl via DoorDash and were amazed at how good the food was. We decided that on our next trip to RVA we would dine in person & that was the right thing to do. The restaurant is beautifully cozy and gives you a view in to the kitchen which is a level of transparency I truly enjoy. Our server/bartender, Winnie I believe, was extremely attentive & whipped up what has to be (stating as a mixologist and restaurant manager) one of the best gin drinks I’ve had. The food was amazing as well. We will definitely be returning.

  313. Jana Horn 2022/10

    Lillie Pearl is a super quick walk around the corner from the hotel we are staying in. I ordered the “Lillie Burger” which is a glorious smashburger. To say this was the best burger I have ever eaten wouldn’t be saying enough. This burger is an out of body experience! Thank you, Lillie Pearl, for ruining me for every other burger I may ever have. DELICIOUS

    I heard high expectations of this place and brought some friends of mine in town to enjoy this establishment. We had our reservations for 8pm and arrived on time and were seated. After placing orders for the drinks it came out and the cocktails did not disappoint. Unfortunately, when we placed our orders for food (our party was of 15 people) some of the food was sold out which was a little upsetting. Then, after we placed the orders we waited for 75 minutes before we went back to ask our waiter why the food was not out yet. The server (Gwenny H) then said because we have a large party the food was going to take a while to be ready. We tried to understand since that seemed reasonable but some order which I don’t believe should take 90+ minutes to come out. Our food finally came out and the I had ordered jollof rice expecting some semblance to African Jollof. I was utterly disappointed. The rice seasoning base was not cooked and I was tasting raw bell peppers. The fried chicken was really good! Afterwards the party was as annoyed and ready to leave and again the server made things difficult during the checking out and paying process. Tonight may have been a bad night for this establishment but it was a distasteful experience for our party. The manager Jasmine did try to make things a little better for the group towards the end.

    This place came highly recommended, so my husband and I decided to give it a shot for a Saturday night dinner. Unfortunately, this recommendation fell short. The service was incredibly slow; we waited 30mins before waters were even brought to our table, and when the waitress finally came, she asked us what we wanted to order. Mind you, there was no preliminary walk-through of the menu with recommended items we should consider. When the appetizers came out, our beet salad came bone dry. No dressing whatsoever…we had to request it. When the entrées came out, they were honestly plain…nothing special. I requested my filet medallions medium rare, and they came well done. I was so tired from the day, that I didn’t even have the strength to send it back…I just wanted to get out of there as quickly as possible. Also, the atmosphere is odd…for dinner, you would think they would dim the lights a bit. Weird vibe. Anyway, in a nutshell, it merely feels like a slightly elevated chain restaurant. Save yourself the trip, and skip this one.

  323. No-y B 2022/10

    Oh my goodness, give me the strength… I have nothing but amazing things to say about this beautiful restaurant. I’ve tried different food items from there menu and everything is always tasty. Hands down, they have the BEST Macaroni and Cheese in Richmond! I’ve ordered plenty of macaroni and cheese for catering events from them and everybody just absolutely loves it and it’s always the first food item gone. I’m so glad to have found this restaurant…it makes me soul happy.

I haven’t been able to find a place in RVA that makes good, Southern, baked Mac and cheese but that search ended last night. Collard greens were the bomb and how do you make something as simple as tenders taste that good? All in all I enjoyed everything I got and will be back in person to try it again!

    Came in on a Saturday during peak dinner time and it was understandably busy so my date and I sat at the bar.

    The bartender provided great service. It was our first time there so we were slow to order and he was patient with us. The food was amazing!

    Started with brussel sprouts. I don’t know what sauce they put on them but it really made the dish. Plenty for your money.

    For the entree I had the striped bass and that is now one of my favorite fish! I believe they seared it and topped with a cream sauce. I ate it too fast to grab pictures.

    Food, service, and setting are all 5 out of 5. Highly recommend!

  333. Jermaine 2022/09

    I absolutely love the Deli Club with the Ranch slaw, one of my fave sandwiches thus far. I also really liked their watermelon cocktail. I went during towards the end of Lunch time. The host was very friendly and I love the atmosphere. Unfortunately, their Smashville Nashville chicken sandwich, according to my husband and friend who ordered it, was not as spicy as they expected it to be and they found the spare ribs egg rolls too cheesy to really taste the spare rib meat.

    Updating the rating for my second visit. Absolutely an awful experience! The two star is purely for their food from my first visit. The first experience was good, so I actually brought my godfather and my uncle in for lunch for a belated Father’s Day meal. After I opened the door for rest of my party, I step in to check in with the host. I started talking to the host and she was about to check us in, then suddenly, a man(probably the manager, since he dressed differently) told me “Could you move aside?”(his exact words, no “please” or “excuse me”) Caught in a surprise, I thought someone with a handicap was coming through, so I quickly stepped back to make way. After checking no one was coming through, I looked back at him, he then told me, “They were here first.”(They, as in the three other people in my party, who are all white. And I was the only Asian.) To shorten the story, after I told him that we were in the same party, he then apologized by saying “Oh, then I apologize.” At that point, I felt embarrassed and a little angry, so we didn’t stay for the meal. And on the way out, my godfather went to have a word with that manager and found out that he thought I, the host of the lunch, was a food delivery driver. Because of what? Because I’m Asian? I mean, the manager(supposedly with more customer experience training), in front of maybe five of the servers, told me to “move a side.” Without a “please” or “excuse me”. And just automatically assume an Asian guy who comes into your restaurant is a delivery driver. Wow, you can’t make this stuff up.

    First visit: Good food and good service. I do recommend getting a reservation, as they tend to be busy. Everything we had were good, the appetizers were flavorful. Our entree, the Smashville fried chicken sandwich was great, the chicken was perfectly cooked, tender and juicy.

    On Sunday the Red Hatters celebrated Mildred’s birthday. She ordered the shrimp and grits, her only words was a whisper, that’s how good it was. Our waitress Lillian was exceptionally professional and patient with 11 women. There were a few drawbacks due to cold french fries and one sandwich served cold The server was informed of the the cold fries and she returned with hot piping fries. Overall we truly enjoy ourselves at the Lillie Pearl.

    The food and service was good! My friends & I all enjoyed our food & we appreciated the friendly staff. However, my Salmon was not cooked how I like it, but staff was very friendly & apologetic. I was provided with a new piece of fish cooked thoroughly. I’ve been to restaurants where they would put the same piece of meat back on the grill, not here. All in all, it was a great experience & I will be returning!

    Food was okay, not my cup of tea but wife wanted it and enjoyed it, happy wife happy life. She had chicken and waffles and me and my 4 year old daughter had chicken fingers and we all shared the macaroni and cheese and brussel sprouts. They have outside seating available. We ordered via phone, parked on the street near the front door, paid inside and did carryout.

    We came in for a scheduled reservation and I will admit we had some of our party arrive 15 minutes later, the vibe was nice, clean spaces, however the manager or supervisor in the cheetah sweater continuously came over to our table to advise that there was another party reserved at 130pm and that we would need to be done by that time. That to me was petty and overkill, we knew at the start of the reservation there was a 2 hour time limit, the waitress did not give us refills on our drinks until we were almost done with our meal, the lobster/crabcake was a little raw, not cooked thoroughly, however the hot chicken sandwich my son had was pretty good to him. I am not sure if I would go back to this restaurant, there has to be more than just the interior to make me go back again.

    I went here for the first time Friday night and it was amazing! So delicious and our server was wonderful. Went again Saturday evening and didn’t have the same experience (as far as the food). My filet came our rare when I ordered medium and by the time the corrected steak came out my family had already been done eating for maybe 15 minutes. They were medallions (so 2 pieces) – one was perfect and the other was still on the rare side. That was a bummer, but our server was really great and the management did comp the meal and was very apologetic! Stuff like this happens, so I definitely will be back! Great menu, nice looking establishment aesthetically and I appreciate that they immediately wanted to make things right without me even asking.

  355. Amelia M 2022/08

    The food was heaven. My partner and his coworkers could not stop talking about the cauliflower appetizer here and I thought they were joking- who ever talks about cauliflower dishes at a restaurant? After I had it I realized that they were completely serious. It was magnificent. I’m vegetarian so I got French fries, Mac n cheese, lemon cake and a hibiscus cocktail. The group I was with shared though so I also had some of the amazing banana pudding. All of it was DELICIOUS.
    I wish I lived closer so I could try everything on the menu.

    The restaurant was beautiful.. The decorations were awesome. I had the lilie Burger. It was cooked perfectly. The service was outstanding. They genuine care about the customers. My daughter got the beet salad with salmon. Everything was fresh. The answer fresh food no nothing is Frozen. The restrooms were very clean. They have an outstanding selection of wines for dinner. I was very impressed with everything. Especially the decorative decorations. We had fried brussel sprouts for an appetizer they’re absolutely delicious.

    The bartender was the only reason this review received anything other than a negative star! It took 20 min for our first round, 40 min for an app of chicken wings, and nearly an hour for our dinners to arrive. One meal was so salty we couldn’t eat it. The waitress disappeared throughout the experience to the point that we flagged down the bartender to grab a second round. It was truly an awful experience. Don’t go.

    Might be my new fave in RVA! Gracious host found us a seat without a reservation. Pleasant sever who recommended the ‘front poarch sipping’ cocktail which was amazing, great ambiance and music. Best part? The food!! Loved the heirloom carrots with goat cheese and short rib egg rolls!! My kiddo enjoyed the grandma-style mac and cheese and the delicious fried brussel sprouts. My husband devoured the crab and lobster cakes and the short rib entree was a hit for me!! We got dessert- banana pudding and peach bread pudding- to go. Next step, come back for the pork chops!! Try this place; I know good food, you won’t be disappointed!! And, we were there on a Monday night.

  366. Nia Miles 2022/08

    By far one of my favorite restaurants in RVA! I have never been disappointed with anything on the menu. The banana pudding is amazing! The presentation is also on point and all of the food is fresh and seasoned to perfection. You are also seated far enough apart from other patrons to feel comfortable which is something very important to me!

    GrubHub driver here. Hostess told me food wasn’t ready when she and I could both see it on the expo’s station. I didn’t receive it until about 5 minutes after I walked in. Hostess didn’t look at or speak to me while handing food to me. Least she could of done was apologize for my inconvenience and the customer’s inconvenience. Stuff happens and it wasn’t even that long of a wait. But no reason to take it out on others that you made a mistake. Bratty and rude.

    I had Lillie Pearl cater a company lunch this week, and I was told by everyone in the room that this was the BEST lunch we’ve had in over 12 months. My company caters lunch twice a month for the firm, so high praise indeed. I personally had the BLT and it was “slap your mama” good! And don’t get me started about the Peach Cobbler Bread Pudding! Seriously, do yourself a favor and eat here. You will not regret it!

    Lillie Pearl is wonderful. The food is unique and creative twist on traditional soul inspired traditions. Deliciously seasoned.

Working on my third visit very soon. ✊🏽🎉

    The food at this place is very decent at a reasonable price. The place is very airy with high ceiling and really spaced out tables so you don’t feel crunched. Reservation is quite easy to get. Service was fast and didn’t have to wait long to get our food either

    Ordered the smoked wings for appetizer it comes in 6 pieces. Great taste highly recommended. And I had the lobster crab cake for main course. The crab cakes are filled with crab meat with pieces lobster, no cut corners. The ice tea was not my favorite, it taste like the bottled lemon ice tea a little too sweet.

    It was my first time there and it was awesome. We were a party of four and we all got an appetizer to share (short rib egg roll, wings, roasted cauliflower) DELICIOUS! My dinner was the beet and burrata salad with salmon with a side of collards… Good Lord! (Ate it so fast I forgot to take a pic!) We tried my sister ‘s mac and cheese and the peach cobbler bread pudding…OMG who granny is cooking in the kitchen because the food makes you reminisce of being a kid eating a good home cooked meal. Soo good! The music, the atmosphere, our waitress (Ms. Samantha) were awesome. Planning to go back soon!

    The food was delicious and the service was fine, but there was a faint sewer odor in the restaurant the evening I dined (6-21-2022). I was meeting friends so I stayed and stopped noticing the odor after a few minutes. There is no atmosphere to speak of, just plain tables and chairs in one big open rectangular room with a hard floor and high ceilings, which helps keep the noise down. I ordered grilled brussel sprouts and a smothered pork chop. The flavor and texture of both were fantastic. With a beer, my bill was about $52, not including tip. It was also difficult to find and pay for parking since I am not from Richmond, but that would be the same for all inner city restaurants.

    Life advice: When the chef is great, just trust them.
    As you gaze over the menu, rest assured that absolutely everything here is completely delicious. Relax and enjoy exceptional dining combined with outstanding service.
    We enjoyed:
    -carrots with wiped goat cheese and spiced honey (you’ll want to lick the plate!)
    -braised short rib egg rolls and (with the best thai basil sauce)
    -fried chicken with mashed potatoes (the perfection)
    – the Lillie burger and fries (scrumptious… ask for the homemade ranch on the side)
    -a healthy and huge salad
    Sadly we were too full for desserts.

    Trust the chef and treat yourself.

    Our group of 7 along with 6 others visited this restaurant on our first stop of a food tour. The food sampler was short rib eggs rolls or brussel sprouts. It was so delicious, we made a reservation to come back on a Monday for lunch. We enjoyed their lunch menu. We were offered our table as soon as we arrived, but service was slow due to the late arrival of another reservation. The food was worth the wait. I strongly suggest you stop in for food that speaks to your soul.

    The visit to Lillie Pearl restaurant was above impressive.
    Our girlz weekend, ended with a BANG! Our decision to stop in Richmond and support a new local restaurant was one for the books.
    Although we arrived an hour to closing we were accommodated and seated at a comfortable table. (Which is rare yet it happens)
    Our drink order was taken within 3 minutes of sitting which was great. We immediately ordered the Chicken Wings, Crab Cakes and Brussel sprouts appetizers and the Scallops and Risotto entrée.
    First, those Wings and Sprouts were bomb like Boom. 💥 Brussel sprouts are a must appetizer for me at any restaurant that serves them and Lille Pearl did not disappoint they were Have Mercy Good! Next was the Oh My Goodness Crab Cakes, the most delicious I’ve had in a long while. It was ALL crab meat little to no filler… I appreciate a cake that ain’t stingy on the crab. They were served with an arugula mixed greens and tomato that was seasoned so well I was tempted to lick my fingers. (Nah I did!)
    And Umph Umph finally the scallops, which were cooked to perfection with a sear on them babies that added a crunch to that melt in your mouth morsel, I couldn’t stop eating em. And they had the nerve to place them on a bed of Risotto with collards, Lawwd it was so good and creamy, I closed my eyes, chewed slowly, and savored ever single bite. LOL I almost ordered a side to take home.

    Sadly our greed got the best of us and we also had some dessert. The Peach Cobbler Bread Pudding and the seasonal Apple Pie both were AWESOMENESS 👌🏽.

    This stop on our trip was a good idea and a great experience. From the time we walked in, the customer service was on point, the hostess, waitress and GM were all on their A game and they made sure we felt like First Class customers from start to finish. The ambiance was great and music was just the right selectin and volume, that allowed us to listen to music and still have a great conversation between our group. And let’s not forget the FOOD, WHEW Chile I’m still licking my lips as I type this review.
    We will be returning.

    We were referred to Lillie pearl from some friends that had live in RVA and got here for a 9:30PM reservation after deciding to stay a night in our way home from NYC. We started with the Short Rib Egg Rolls and Brussels. The rolls were crispy, warm, and the filling well balanced. The Brussels were fried just right and the buttermilk ranch that paired with it was delish! For our entree we chose the Coffee Rubbed Filet and thought it was alright. Was a little over cooked and the mash that accompanied it a little pasty in texture. The drinks were spot on and service was impeccable. I’d recommend coming here and would give it another try.

    We shared the fried Brussels sprouts, short rib egg rolls, the fried chicken (not pictured because we demolished it), peach cobbler bread pudding & a seasonal dessert- the crème brûlée cheesecake. There were only two of us. I regret nothing.

    IT WAS ALL SO GOOD. Everything. All of it. I can’t wait to go back.

    The best part was the ‘90s/2000s R&B playlist they had on. Peach cobbler was great, fries were good, sprouts were over-sauced and chicken sandwiches were stringy and dry.

  423. Dwayne Burton 2022/05

    Staff is very inconsiderate to customers. We were seated at a table for 6 in the waiting area. It was only two of us. When I asked to be moved the hostess said they can tell people not to wait in that area but she couldn’t move us. There were other tables open on the restaurant and a table for two by the door on the other side. They need to make the table in the waiting area more private without people standing around you while you eat. For her not to accommodate us makes me say I will not go back because of the service. Who wants to eat their dinner while people are standing next to your table eyeing them. I will also tell many friends abs family about my experience.

  424. S Engelhardt 2022/05

    Wonderful meal with tables spaced out, so you weren’t competing to hear people in your party. Staff was really friendly. The short rib egg rolls were fantastic and the shrimp, lobster and grits were the perfect portion.

    My husband and I happened to stumble on this indeed Pearl for lunch. It’s gorgeous and roomy. More so the food is extraordinary and tasty! I had the lobster and crab cake sandwich with Brussels sprouts and hands down it’s the best seafood sandwich I ever had. The dessert was delicious. Gwennie our server was a delight, professional and helped us with our meal choice.

  434. Anita Guthrow 2022/04

    Let me start by saying I went here a few months back and I did not have a best experience. When my friend said she wanted to go for her birthday, I was hestiant.

    BUT LET ME TELL YOU I WILL BE BACK!

    Last night, my friends and I had the best time. We sat at the bar, the bartender, Shanitta (I am sure thats wrong), was the most friendly, hiliarious and outgoing. She gave us the best recommendations. Do yourself a favor and sit at the bar. Shes a hoot.

    The food, PHENOMENAL!
    Short Rib Eggs – to die for
    Brussel Sprouts – Amazing
    Pork Chop – tender and delicious

    The music was on point! 2000s RnB was right up our alley and set the mood for a good time.

    I will definitely be back!

  435. Judy Payne 2022/04

    Food was delicious. You have to try the short rib egg rolls…what! Had a salad added fried chicken. The rest of the group grabbed the fried chicken sandwich. All was tasty, reasonable prices. Recommend visiting on a Saturday for lunch.

  436. Darren Grimes 2022/04

    Finally had a chance to try Lillie Pearl after hearing so many great things about it and we were certainly not disappointed! Every single menu item we had was fantastic and we can’t wait to go back and try more! We had the pimento cheese balls and wedge salad with homemade ranch (out of this world btw) for starters and loved both. Filet medallions and fried chicken for mains and they were excellent as well. The homemade hot sauce provided for the fried chicken was the best I’ve ever had. There’s also a honey dipping sauce provided for those who can’t take the heat. Topped it off with the peach cobbler which is a must as well. Service was outstanding and the owners were both working and super friendly. Go support this family owned RVA business and enjoy some fantastic food!

  437. S H 2022/04

    Absolute horrible experience. We were a group of 20 in town for a conference. 15 of the 20 walked out.
    Najee was great.
    Manager was horrible
    Hostess in the crop top that did not accommodate her was beyond nasty with her eye and body rolls.

    Customer service takes you far, literally the expectation in this industry and to be told that our concern wasn’t valid since we were treated poorly and less than subpar service. The manager unfortunately mentioned this hostess was her best staff. Horrible experience overall.

    Booked for mother’s day at 430p and we werent serviced until almost 6p. Not sure if our order was completely missed or the kitchen was off. We watched other tables and to go order go passed our table. The server was ok but should have known after the 3rd refill of tea. It would have been nice to offer apps or a discount but we were only offered dessert after the meal. After waiting so long, why would i want to wait for a free dessert? The worst part about it was the food was flavored well but the sides were cold. They did bring out a replacement and it was hot. If i dont have pics, then you know its bad.

  444. Brian Beard 2022/04

    Bartender was a total jerk. Asked for the blackberry margarita he told me it sucked . So i awkwardly opted to what he suggested – the special- it sucked.

    The “fried chicken breast” wasn’t at all a traditional breast. And it had a wing attached to it ? Weird. Entirely overpriced.

    Dry collard greens – how do you do that?

    The scallops were awful. Grainy.

    Asked for waters, never came. Asked again. Came . Never refilled even though he looked at them multiple times.

    1 star for the great and kind host.

  445. Brian Williams 2022/04

    Flames top to bottom. The vibe, the music, the service, the food. All A+++. You will not be disappointed. The Brussels are worth the trip alone. All of the food was hot and fresh, and the cocktails were delicious.

    We will absolutely come back as soon as we can.

  446. roxana parnian 2022/04

    First of all, our server was rude. She got frustrated When we complained about our food. We wanted to order Lamb shank but wasn’t available. Then we ordered short ribs but the risotto and the root vegetables on the side weren’t cooked and inedible. Our friend ordered crab cake and it was super dry on the outside and uncooked inside. The fries that came with the burger was dry and almost burnt.We ordered a beer that we never got. Very disappointed with both the food and the service. We will never go back

We had a party of about 10 people (3 children under 7 to add) and they were on top of every need so that we could enjoy.

    The food was seasoned to perfection! We had the Brussels sprouts for an appetizer along with the Chicken wings. I have not tasted Brussels sprouts that were this good in a very long time! Very sweet and savory! The wings were fried to perfection. I had the the Burger as an entree and it was very good. The kitchen staff takes pride in the food they produce for it’s patrons. We will definitely be going back in the future.

    I very much have mixed feelings about my experience. My shrimp and grits were OK they were not bursting with flavors so that may be where I was disappointed. I mean I didn’t need 1 million shrimp I just needed more burst of flavor throughout it. My boyfriend‘s chicken hot chicken was quite good and he really enjoyed it and he really enjoyed his mac & cheese. The star of the brunch was the banana pudding with cream Brulé banana throughout were incredible. When we got there they said we couldn’t have a table for an hour but there was tons of empty tables I understand having reservations but there seem to be some confusion. The other thing that was puzzling about the restaurant was there seem to be only two waiters and they were working their butts off but that was odd!

    Unfortunately we’ve tried to get in here for a meal a few times. This time the staff was nicer at least. However, we booked in advance for a birthday meal and they tried to sit us outside when there were several tables (like the one we were stood next to for 30 min) available. It was cold outside as well. Very disappointing.

  463. Ernest Wright 2022/03

    My wife and teenage daughter along with another family ate lunch here last Saturday since it was close to our hotel (we were in town for an event at the convention center). The food was delicious. My wife and I had the fried chicken sandwiches (mine was Nashville hot) and we both agreed they were Some of the best we’ve ever had. Very moist and full of flavor. The sides we ordered (brussels sprouts, mac and cheese) were also very good. Even my picky daughter liked her salad and the the mac and cheese as well

    I’ve already recommended Lillie Pearl to someone visiting Richmond and look forward to coming back in the near future.

    I’ve been to this restaurant several times in the past few months and by far today was the worst experience ever. I was disappointed that a party of white people who arrived after my party of Black people were served promptly while it took an hour and eight minutes for our food and drinks to arrive. Today’s horrific experience negated the dozens of other positive experiences at this restaurant. Did I mention that my fries were cold too?

    I am confused as to why this is a 5 star establishment. Although the decor and ambience in the restaurant is nice I was highly disappointed with the bald bar tender. Sarcastic and rude spent more time speaking and serving his colleague and gossiping who was not on the clock at the time. I asked him his recommendation for a sweet cocktail on the menu he made some rude gesture about chucking the menu away rather then making a recommendation or suggesting one
    he can make. Made a comment to
    his colleague which I overheard about me asking for a sweet cocktail. Asked for water kept us waiting for 10 minutes and we had to ask again before getting one although he walked past and looked at my partners empty glass a number of times. Please train your staff, what happened to the southern hospitality? Would not return or recommend we just wanted to leave asap by far the worst experience I have had in the south so far. The scallops were so salty the worst I have had.

  474. Erika Bazemore-Gardner 2022/02

    First timer, food was very good, server was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The only reason why I did not give a 5-star was due to the long wait to receive our food. The hostess did apologize for the delay and offered to pay for dessert. We would definitely return.

    Ordered the carrots and the pimento cheese to go, both cold, the carrots was ONE carrot and really not good, nothing like the description at all. Pimento cheese could have been good if it was even slightly warm but was legit cold. Ordered 3 ranches got none. So had to spend 5 min picking all of that out. Super disappointed as I had heard this was really good Spent over 40 for to go food and only could eat the salad, which also I asked for no radicchio and it was still there.

  476. Isaac Marks 2022/02

    Had an opportunity to engage in a very compelling business meeting at Lillie Pearl at the behest of an invitee. While I literally was so enthralled in the subject matter, I’d not really paid attention to the content of my order, once I adjusted my focus, I was taken for a journey with one of the most amazing BLT Club sandwiches I’d had in years!

    That delectable, along with, at least in my eyes, the most non-traditional side (with a club) of collards, was awe inspired.

    The service was exemplary, and non-intrusive. This was of particularly important given the sensitivity of the discussions being undertaken.

    The environment was very comfortable, and well appointed.

    I would definitely return for a social, intimate, or business gathering. And, I would highly recommend it to anyone who has not visited…those who have, won’t require my observations.

    Great Job Lillie Pearl!

    I was happy to go to an establishment that is owned by African Americans and the decor and atmosphere is inviting without being gaudy. The bar area is well stocked and the various drink choices give you options. Now the Brussel sprouts were wonderful, the egg rolls in a fusion sense are very tasty and the Deli Club along with the fries is a great complement as an entree. So if you are in the Richmond VA area, definitely stop by Lillie Pearl.

    My first time here and i was blown away. The food was soo good. The service was amazing. I had the lobster shrimp and grits but substituted mashed potatoes instead of the grits it was sooo good. Only because it was full my food took so long to come. Im sure if it was less people they would have been faster. Also i called a few times before walking in. I couldn’t get an answer. But overall my experience was great and the food…. Omg THE FOOD 😩🥴 it was sooo good‼️‼️‼️

    This was my first visit to Lillie Pearl and I was very pleased with the experience. We were seated quickly and our server was very attentive and hospitable. We were near the windows and it was extremely cold. He went out of his way to ask the mgr to have the thermostat turned up. Food was hot, fresh and delicious. Medium to high price point, but worth it. Amazing drink menu. Can’t wait to try their brunch!!!

  487. Batibut Cuyugan 2022/02

    We made a mistake in our order and the restaurant intuitively thought we made a mistake. They called us to clarify if we intentionally ordered an additional side. The manager explained that the dish already came with the side we had ordered. He then informed us that he would adjust our order and bill accordingly. The food was wonderful. Southern hospitality at its finest.

    Best burger of my life, and I’m no spring chicken! Lillie Burger’s combination of munster cheese and perfectly glazed onion jam, bacon, pickles and subtle sauce are absolutely mouth watering.

  493. Bailey Broaddus 2022/01

    The food was very good but the biggest reason we will 100% be going back is the kind and thoughtful staff and charming ambiance. So glad to have found another winning date night spot!

  494. Andrea Gray 2022/01

    Hubby and I enjoyed Lillie Pearl so much!! We had a really hard time deciding on our entrées because everything looked and sounded so good!! I ordered the lobster shrimp and grits and it was the best I’ve ever had!! Hubby had the lamb shank and was so satisfied with the portion and flavor!! Of course the seared scallops were cooked to perfection!! Mac and cheese and collard greens-delish!! Topped it off with the banana pudding and peach cobbler bread pudding!! By far in the top five best restaurants in Richmond!! Don’t let me forget to praise the friendliest staff!! Our server, Lillie, is sweet, helpful and very good at making us feel like we can’t wait to return and indulge in everything on the menu!! So happy we live in Richmond to enjoy this fabulous establishment!!

    Awful service. Amazing food.

    15 minutes until our waiter acknowledged us.
    12 minutes watching our beer going flat/warm at the serving station.
    22 minutes unsuccessfully trying to get our waiters attention to order more drinks or get the check.

    Manager was nice though and finally helped us get our check. Food was also good enough to give this 4 stars despite the service.

    Just make it easier to take my money!

  496. John Williams 2022/01

    Great service and great food. The only thing that stopped me from a five star is that they require reservations for indoor dining and there are so many open tables for my party of 5. We sat at the bar the entire time but there was so many tables available.

    Stopper by for the first time to try the Sunday Brunch. HIGHLY recommend the fried chicken and french toast! It’s moreso toasted bread pudding but it’s amazingly delicious. They have great $25 mimosas with 3 juice options to choose from and the prices overall were very reasonable. We’ll definitely be back again!

    Lillie Pearl is a favorite of mine. If only Michael would bottle and sell the lobster sauce! 😋

    This time I tried the Shrimp and Grits for brunch. I thought I was the only southern girl that didn’t like grits, but I had to give it another try, and WOW! I am converted.

    Absolutely DELICIOUS! I don’t remember the last time I had food so amazing! I came here right at 11:00 A.M. when it opened for lunch and had the Lillie Burger. It was MOUTH WATERING! At $14, it is a fantastic deal! The caramelized onions were delicious, the cheese MELTED in my mouth, the bacon was crispy, and the two meat paddies were huge (tons of meat). The fries were pretty good too but got a little soggy after 20 ish mins. Overall, I was so happy with my meal and would go out of my way to come here again when I’m back in Richmond. My server was also super attentive, kind, and just fantastic! The bathrooms were also clean. The restaurant has such a cool vibe and the outside seating is nice.

    My friend whom I was dining with got the Beet and Burrata Salad with salmon and loved her meal as well.

    100% recommend this place and will be going back when I’m in town again.

    This was my first visit to Lillie Pearl and it won’t be my last! Walking through the door, I was impressed with the gastropub-like, laidback atmosphere that contained a slight chic element. We surfed the menu and wanted everything on it, so we asked our server for some recommendations. I was oddly pleased when she advised that one ingredient for a particular dish was not available, as they have no freezers to store food. That’s a great thing for me, as you know everything you order is fresh and hasn’t been sitting in their freezer losing its flavor! We ordered the Short Rib Egg Rolls that were amazingly delicious and heavily filled with every good thing you can think of! The Wedge Salad was HUGE! The use of slab bacon and gem lettuce versus tiny bacon pieces and iceberg lettuce was a game changer! Best wedge salad I’ve ever had…and there have been many! They also used buttermilk ranch instead of blue cheese dressing which I was very happy with because blue cheese dressing plus blue cheese crumbles can sometimes be overpowering. For dessert, we had the Limoncello Cake and Peach Cobbler Bread Pudding. Both were winners!

    I love that this place is black owned, the ambiance is beautiful and the customer service was great. We called on a Friday night and they said that they were full. We decided to go anyway to possibly sit at the bar and the place had multiple empty tables. Which was pretty weird being that it was a Friday evening and it was really nice outside. Anyway, we sat outside and ordered drinks, apps and entrees. BJ the manager was great about switching my beat salad that came with iceberg lettuce to Arugula. I ordered the duck and my husband ordered the bass (I think). The meat portions were large but the side portions were rather small. Plus the price of the meals didn’t equate to the actual taste of it. Overall it was nice but I’ve been to nice restaurants and the prices really didn’t match the food. I’d go again but maybe just for drinks and apps.

  508. John Marion 2022/01

    First timers. The service was excellent. We had an hour and a half to make a concert and they made sure we got out in time. The food was excellent. Salads are big enough for two as an appetizer. Reasonable prices for the quality of food. The peach cobbler bread pudding was the best. 😀 Small locatio , make sure to make reservations.

    Visiting Richmond for a few days, staying at the Jefferson Hotel a short walk away from Lillie Pearl.

    Staff were friendly, helpful and engaging.

    Service is measured what some might call slow. The only aspect that was slow on this evening was the bar.

    For the food we started with the Brussels sprouts and the short rib egg rolls. Both excellent. You could seriously make a meal out of the Brussels sprouts alone.

    I had the fried chicken which came with mashed potatoes with corn mixed in and of course collard greens. My wife enjoyed a burrata salad with salmon. Again both meals delicious.

    The cocktails were well made and delicious as well.

    Naji was our waiter – he was amazing, very professional, kind without being too familiar, cordial and very knowledgeable about the menu. He made our experience complete.

    We will return next time we are in Richmond.

  528. Mitchell Seargent 2021/12

    Absolutely delicious! My wife got the soft shell crab sandwich and it was HUGE and awesome. I got the smashville chicken (spicy) and it was also massive and super delicious. We will definitely be back and I will probably go back by myself just for that chicken sandwich.

    Well.. I honestly mess with this place hard. Great atmosphere, lovely ambiance, it”s a vibe. Great cocktails! The menu reads great, but for the price, I expected the execution to be more on point. From experience, I understand cooks have bad days, so overall I will go back and try again.

  530. Ashley Sharpe 2021/12

    Went here for the first time over the weekend and everything was AMAZING. From the staff, to the drinks, to the food, we had a great experience. The owners took their time to table touch everyone in the restaurant and the servers greeted us and helped clear tables for guests that weren’t their own (great teamwork!). Our drinks were well balanced and those egg rolls are addicting. I took pictures but my camera does not do the food justice. We had the fried chicken and the lamb shank for dinner and we couldn’t have picked better choices. Definitely worth trying out!

  531. Sierra Burrell 2021/12

    This food was EXCELLENT. From presentation to taste, I enjoyed everything. Service was also amazing. We all tried different dishes and shared them amongst each other. I would order any of them again. We had the BLT, chicken sandwich, soft shell crab sandwich, and lobster/crab sandwich. The combination of flavors was perfect. I will absolutely be back soon. I highly recommend this restaurant!

  532. Wren (AlphaIs2Nice) 2021/12

    This place was amazing. Such a good first experience. I ordered the Lillie burger with no bacon, they don’t ask how you want your meat, but it turned out sensational. The ONLY critique I have and it’s only a suggestion would be to have smaller spoons for the banana pudding (which was delectable).. just so we can get EVERY BITE. Thank you for the wonderful date night. Price wasn’t even ridiculous for two people and the quality of the food. I’ll definitely be back to order something new from the menu. 2 entree’s with 2 appetizers and 3 heavy handed drinks for $110.

    Food was superb! Lamb shank, short rib eggrolls and a good old fashioned.

  554. Bishop S. JaNine Hyman, Ph.D. 2021/10

    Very tasty, well seasoned, and well presented cuisine. Food is a little pricey, but it’s very good. A salad wedge and salmon (with NO sides–just a little arugula mixed w/a tablespoon of corn and cherry tomatoes) cost about 40 bucks. Service is average, and it took an hour to get our food.

    One thing that was a turn off fir my six member party: the manager’s social and problem solving skills displayed to us dissuaded us to probably not return.

    We called two days ahead for a 4:30pm reservation. No problems setting the reservation but for weekend, make sure to call a couple of days ahead. We were told there was a time restriction of an hour and a half on our reservation so as to free up space for another party. We were aware that we’d have to leave by 6 for the next party. However, we arrived at 4:30 but did not get our food until 5:30. A one hour wait time is excessive. The manager told us at 6:15 we’d have to leave so the next party could come in. Part of eating together is the socual bonding snd fellowship…ours was disrupted. There was no apology for us having to wait for hour for our food or anything….we were treated like just a number rather than valued customers.

  555. Jessica Pellerito 2021/10

    We had a wonderful experience at Lillie Pearl on Friday night! The food was absolutely delicious, fresh ingredients, presented creatively, and good portion size. We ordered a feast and managed to eat most of it because it was that good! Short Rib Eggrolls, the Brussel Sprouts, Wedge Salad, Burrata and Beet Salad, Fried Chicken, Sea Bass, and Salmon entrees. To top it off, the service was outstanding. Our server, Tyra, was attentive, detailed, efficient, made great recommendations, and was overall pleasant. I recommend reservations as it got busy for dinner service.

  556. Austin Graff 2021/10

    On a recent weekend getaway from D.C. to Richmond, my buddy and I stopped into Lillie Pearl for a Friday evening drink an hour before closing. Although they have limited indoor seating during the pandemic, we opted for the outdoor patio. There are several tables spread out on the patio. Since we went for drinks, we just got beers. Their drink menu is large and I appreciated the inclusion of cocktails and even a hard cider. Prices were reasonable and service good!

  557. jacqui Romero 2021/10

    Very disappointing! After reading previous reviews and responses from management you would think that there would be some improvements. My crab cakes were burnt on the bottom and almost tasteless. Maybe 2 tablespoons of wllted arugula with cherry tomatoes and corn on the side. My friends ask for dinner rolls or bread to accompany his meal and the waitress said we don’t have any! Finally he asked for a roll and she said she would have to.check. The portions were small and very overpriced. The atmosphere there was very cool and I get where they’re going with the upscale vibe. Probably my last.visit there.

  558. cheron bishop 2021/10

    I had the pleasure of dining here this weekend for my birthday. This was a top notch food experience. The chef takes soul food and elevates it to something so special, you have to experience it to fully understand. Every course was beautifully plated and expertly executed. The pork belly was phenomenal, the scallops were plump and cooked perfectly, the salmon was so delicious that it almost brought a tear. If all of this wasn’t enough, the peach cobbler bread pudding was crisp, delicious, and perfect.The wait staff is friendly and accommodating. There was not one thing that didn’t absolutely make me happy about eating here.

  559. Mae D 2021/10

    Popped in for lunch. If you can, try to call ahead and snag a reservation. I got the lobster crab cake without the bun and fries. Also tried the harvest mule and the cinnamon sugar is what really made it stand out. Very tasty, would frequent again. Everyone in the restaurant was very eloquently dressed, wear your sports coat.

    Everything we ate and drank here was delicious. I highly recommend the seared scallops appetizer, the scallops are cooked perfectly, very tender and full of flavor.

    This restaurant is awesome. The owner and staff take great pride in it’s service, not to mention the food is to die for. You will enjoy eating there. 5 stars are not enough rating. I will be returning again and again.

    Amazing quality, the softshell crab sandwiches were incredible – hot Nashville seasoning on a perfectly fried softshell crab smothered in slaw and pickles – I’ll be going back for sure! Usually not into salads but the beet-burrata salad was pretty delicious, and a pretty big portion to share for two. Highly recommend.

    This place treated us horribly. We made a reservation to dine inside before attending a show and while we were waiting in line to claim our reserved indoor table, it was given to another party who had reserved outside and then changed their mind. We were told we could sit outside or wait an hour. We had a show to attend and it was freezing outside specifically why we reserved inside…. We left, hostess was rude and disrespectful and to young to understand etiquette. Manager was worse.

  586. Teyana Ildefonso 2021/09

    I have no words, absolutely delicious! I had the lobster & crab cake sandwich and short rib egg rolls. The lobster & crab cake sandwich was so delicious. There was no filler, there was crab and lobster every bite 🙂 the remoulade so good i got an extra side. My new favorite spot in Richmond for sure !

  587. Kee-Sha Epps-Eskridge 2021/09

    my best friend and I went to Lillie Pearl after seeing a review on Facebook. From Kim, who answered when I called to book our reservation, to Zack our server, to Chef Mike who came to our table to personally check on our experience, Lillie Pearl did not disappoint! And the food was amazing! Elevated comfort food! We will definitely go back and I definitely will recommend! I had the roasted brussel sprouts and lobster shrimp and grits! Amazing! So full that I had to get the banana pudding to go! Great food. Great staff. Great atmosphere.

    I absolutely LOVE Lillie Pearls!!! The food is AMAZING!!! YOU MUST GO!!!
    The Seared Scallops on a bed of collard green risotto with crispy Brussels leaves is super delicious. The scallops are so tender and seasoned to perfection that ordered another to go!!! I was salivating.😂
    The fried Brussels sprouts with the Asian sauce is a must have. This is how they should always be cooked!!! I ordered some to go as well. 🤣
    The baked Mac and Cheese (pimento) is so creamy and good. Well, another order of those went home too!!! 😁
    The collard greens are seasoned so right. You just can’t order an additional Mac and Cheese without another order of collards!!! 😅
    I ordered the Hoppin’ John’s too, but by this time I was full as a dang tick. So, I took it home, laid some of the Brussels sprouts on top a FB wondered why I didn’t order some more!!! 😀
    That Apple butter on those cheddar biscuits taste real good warmed up again!!

    One of the best restraunts in RVA. Unique menu, food tasted phenomenal, service was amazing. Recommend highly the egg rolls, brussel sprouts, lobster and shrimp grits, and peach bread pudding. Great selection of draft beers and wines to choose from. Even have Bells two hearted ale on tap which is one of my personal favorites!

    A group of friends and I were visiting and we all work at a similar restaurant and were looking for something with an upscale but casual lunch. This was it. We called ahead during lunch and the person I spoke to on the phone was very kind. We got there and Zack was absolutely amazing. He kept our drinks full and was very personable. The food was outstanding! We loved it so much half of our group ordered food Togo to have later! Lillie pearl is a must stop for food in Richmond!

  601. D. Robinson 2021/09

    Food was amazing and its black owned so definitely a plus! I have been craving Nashville hot chicken and this definitely satisfied that craving! The peach cobbler bread pudding was amazing as well! The only downside was the crispy pork belly was a bit tough to eat; not sure if it was because i got takeout. Otherwise me and my husband enjoyed our meal

  610. Courtney Woodard 2021/08

    I’m honestly very let down by the experience I had here tonight. All of the positive reviews made me so excited that Lillie Pearl was going to be this amazing experience, and it just wasn’t. The food was okay. Definitely not worth what I paid for it. My friend’s pork chop was somehow both raw and tough. She genuinely couldn’t cut her meat without standing up and baring down on it.

    The big disappointment, though, was the service. I got the distinct impression from my server that he considered my table his lowest prioroty. Getting water from him took 20 minutes. I ordered an additional drink part way through the meal and just never got it. It still showed up on my bill, though. When I pointed it out, he just took the bill and corrected. No apology for forgetting my drink or anything. It wasn’t like the place was super busy or anything. He just couldn’t be bothered to give us good service.

  611. Ann Frias 2021/08

    Food was incredible although it took forever to get it from kitchen to table when they weren’t even busy. I appreciated the chef came out of the kitchen and visited tables to see how customers liked their dish.

    Seriously so good. My friend and I ordered a few of their appetizers, cocktails and peach cobbler to share and each plate was eaten entirely. Very, very good food and our waitress was so kind!

  616. Tia T 2021/08

    It was an impromptu date night and we were pleased! The smoked chicken wings weren’t juicy or as flavorful as imagined ,however, we replaced them with the egg rolls and it made the night complete!!!! The baked Mac n cheese was delicious and the beverages were excellent! Speaking of beverages…. HARVEST MULE! OMG

    THE HARVEST MULE is like closing your eyes… and ingesting the state fair, candy apples, apple pie, Thanksgiving, pumpkin spice and seeing nothing but orange and yellow leaves falling from trees! PLEASE GET 2 @ MINIMUM!

    if it weren’t for the smoked chicken wings being a tad overcooked, I’d rate 5 stars!!!

    Let me apologize for not taking pictures of the deliciousness that was my meal! EVERYTHING was good! EVERYTHING!! I went for brunch and had a sweet carro-line as my drink, the roasted heirloom baby carrots starter and short rib egg rolls as a meal and for dessert I did the peach cobbler bread pudding. I couldn’t choose what I wanted for an entree so that’s why I stopped there, but I definitely have plans to return again and try something new. I went with a group and we pretty much shared each others plates. I also tasted the fried Brussel sprouts, the short rib burrito, and the biscuits. Again I say EVERYTHING was GOOOOOD! I will return, I hope you plan yo do the same!

  618. Njeri Kershaw 2021/08

    This place was amazing!! Great drinks, great service and out of this world food!! I would’ve taken pictures but I ate it too fast!

Everyone needs to try this amazing place!!

    We had reservations on the patio, but there was a storm blowing in. We hadn’t recieved any information from the restaurant, so we showed up on time only to be told they were essentially canceling our reservation due to the storm. They offered us bar seats which we took, but to have no rain plan for all outdoor reservations was pretty baffling. We were celebrating, and it ended up making it feel less special.

    Our starters and my mocktail were delicious, but my main dish was incredibly lackluster. The menu said it came with heirloom tomatoes, and I was served what seemed like Kroger brand cherry tomatoes instead. You couldn’t taste or find the texture of the lobster in my lobster and crab cakes. I had been really wanting to try this place, but it ended up being a disappointing experience.

  620. Angel White 2021/08

    They just opened in November and are already listed as one of the top brunch places in #RVA and I can definitely see why! 1) The vibe and decor are gorgeous + friendly service. The owner came to greet us herself! 2) The music is so good! Such a great selection. 3) The food! Some of the best mac and cheese I’ve tasted in a while (this says a lot!) and the peach cobbler bread pudding – the absolute best!. I 100% recommend this place and will for sure be back to visit.

    Lillie Grace is conveniently located downtown within walking distance of Hilton and Marriott. I used to work downtown years ago and was surprised to find this restaurant while visiting with my sister. Anyway, the restaurant features wonderfully juicy buttermilk soaked chicken and has an entire menu dedicated to their signature fried chicken. My sister says it’s the best she’s had and is why she brought me there today. I am on a no fry food diet self implemented so I was happy to find there are plenty of alternative options. In my case I decided to go with the special this weekend which was the soft shell smashville sandwich. This sandwich is made up of soft shell crab some Nashville rub seasonings, those fried onion things and other veggies on a brioche bun. I requested pickles on the side. The sandwich made me stop talking and devour half before talking again. It was that good. My sisters sandwich was the lobster and crab sandwich. It was just as good according to my sister. We both ordered cocktails. My sister ordered the watermelon cocktail and I ordered the mermaid cocktail. The watermelon cocktail was crisp and refreshing, perfect for this approaching heat wave. The mermaid was also cool and refreshing but had more of a citrus twist and tang.

    The ambiance was wonderful. Light and airy for a nice luncheon. I love the chandeliers and I want the “windows on the walls” see pictures. I loved the floor to ceiling windows which made it bright and open.

    They also have outdoor seating but I didn’t think it was warm enough to sit out there since it is a shaded area.

    The service was wonderful. The employees friendly and polite and though masked I could tell they were all smiling and gave off such a positive vibe and energy. Like they enjoyed working here just as much as we enjoyed eating here. It was definitely a wonderful experience compared to more known chains.

    Overall, this restaurant receives 10/10.

    First visit. First Impressions. Nice. Food was good; granted I only had carrots. I did enjoy the carrot entrée but liked the more tender ones best. Service, ok. My server never checked to see if I was ok or needed anything. And, I do not like it when the check is brought without being asked if dessert or anything else is needed. The music is good. The ambiance, despite COVID-19, is fine.

    Wow I just had the worst experience at #LilliePearl restaurant in #Rva. Food takes forever on every occasion but i still support because it’s Black Owned. This last time was the last straw for me. The ran out of Mac and the ingredient for my mixed drink at 2pm on a Saturday. The owner came to our table and his motto may as well be “we don’t, we can’t” on every request. Poor customer service and business culture. They don’t understand the value of a customer. 😢 i expected way better. Won’t ever eat here again.

  636. Bobbie Johnson 2021/07

    We enjoyed the food. The menu was interesting, and our Server Zack Moss was very attentive. The Front man (I wish I had gotten his name) pointed out some local music venues. Hip, current music was playing and a diverse selection of people were dining.
    When we return to Richmond we’ll definitely be back.

    Stopped on a whim and….what an excellent choice! Outside seating with great service and food that made me want to lick the plate to get every delicious morsel. Lillie Pearl’s is going to be a regular from now on.
    Once past the struggle over shrimp and grits and braised short ribs, dinner was a dream. The beef was perfectly tender with the perfect gravy. Served over risotto with roasted root vegetables the portion size was spot on and so lovely I ate every drop….and barely restrained myself from licking the plate.

We split a crabcake sandwich meal and a crabcake with all meats no filler in so fresh!

    Dessert for me was the peach bread pudding….it was warm and soooo delicious.

    I went here for an early dinner. The restaurant was booked for reservations on the weekend night, but I could order the same menu at the bar. There are high ceilings in this restaurant. Many people appeared to be enjoying cocktails. I ordered the lobster-shrimp-grits. The lobster pieces were visible and the sausage had a bacon like quality. The shrimp absorbed the flavor well. I enjoyed selecting how much of the sauce I wanted to eat with each bite of grits and the brightness of the tomato to counter the rich creme and meat flavor. This meal was very filling and if I go back I would certainly try the Mac and cheese or one of the braised items on the menu.

    Amazing food – their fried chicken is to die for! I’ve only had their take out so far but the dining atmosphere inside seems relaxed yet lively.

    Best food I have ever eaten and the best service I could have ever received and the manager is great! She is so polite! I have been for dinner and lunch and my favorites are the pimento cheese balls and fried chicken l! It’s the best fried chicken you will ever eat😋😋😋 …

    The fried brussel sprouts and egg rolls were great! And didn’t think it could get better until the entree came out…the fried chicken plate with collards and mac n cheese. The BEST!! Hubby got the Lillie Burger with fries. Awesome.

    We stopped on the way to a show so we didn’t have much time. We had three apps: spare rib egg rolls, wings, and seared scallops. The rolls and wings were excellent. The scallops were perfect. If you like an Old Fashioned, don’t miss the “Return of the Mack.”

    Are there 1,000 stars available? Absolutely love this place. The staff is so friendly and the food, I could talk all day about it. Absolutely superb. I love a place where I have a hard time picking because everything sounds so delicious. Our server was Victor today and he blew us away. He was so knowledgeable and quick to make recommendations which made choosing easier. Also had the best conversation with a manager (I’m assuming) who just stopped by to make sure everything was to our liking. This was our second of many times here, I’m sure. Oh and let’s not forget the classic r&b playing at the perfect volume as we enjoyed our dining experience. Lillie Pearl so easily makes the list of my top 5 favorite local restaurants in the city. We had the short rib egg rolls (OMG) the Brussels sprouts (double omg!) and then i had the pork chop for my entree and my friend had the lamb shank which was her first lamb experience. Couldn’t have been better.

    This place is a Pearl, now one of my top five favorite places in RVA. The Lillie Pearl hamburger is best of RVA hands down, the apps are fabulous and drinks are on point. The place has a laid back charm, and eclectic patronage. Love Lillie Pearl!!!

    A one block walk from the Marriott in downtown Richmond. A really nice combo of Southern inspired cuisine. Very good hospitality, and a fun, hip vibe. Everything from amazing fried chicken wings, to excellent steak medallions. Will be back.

  690. Megan Kettle 2021/05

    We had a late dinner consisting of a few appetizers and cocktails. The eggs rolls, cauliflower, and red beans and rice were all spot on but the real show stopper was the heirloom roasted carrots. We left feeling satisfied but not overly stuffed. Our server Victor was perfectly attentive. Will be going back!

  691. bryan acheson 2021/05

    Everyone must visit Lillie Pearl. Food is incredible. Entire staff is on point and friendly! Our server was Michael who was fantastic and brought out a bowl of water for our goldendoodle Millie. Manager took the time to thanks at our table for dining at his restaurant! Family owned and operated, please support them!

  692. A Oz 2021/05

    Where do I start?
    THE FOOD!!! Order anything, you are guaranteed to be overwhelming satisfied. I rarely eat dessert, but the appetizers and main courses were so delicious that I had to try dessert. I forgot I was in a restaurant the way I devoured the banana pudding. It’s not your momma’s banana pudding, it’s Millie’s and she’s alright with me.
    The ambiance during a pandemic was just what every soul needs. The restaurant was more than accommodating when it came to serving our party of 8. We felt safely spaced from others.They somehow managed to provide the perfect blend of togetherness while adhering to state guidelines. The music made you want to stay and eat more while singing out load. The servers made you feel as though you were dining at a friend’s home. Every server that came to our table felt like a friend ready to guide you on a new food and drink journey.

    It’s a sophisticated and comfortable atmosphere.
    A necessary stop when I’m in RVA.

  693. Jeanine Bayne 2021/05

    The food and drinks were absolutely amazing. Fried chicken with collard greens and Mac and cheese was 10/10. The brussel sprout appetizer had a perfect crisp and spice to them. Coffee infused medallions were tender. Definitely recommend

  694. Mark Shapiro 2021/05

    First time dining here. The food was all OK, but nothing to write home about, most dishes felt like they were just “missing something”. The lamb shank was the best thing by far.

    Aside from that, the service was a bit lack luster. My wife got there first as I was parking and said it was like someone was bothered to have to seat her (we were on time for our reservation). We ordered appetizers and drinks to start, but we were never asked if we wanted more drinks afterwards. asked my wife is she wanted a refill on her cocktail, she said “no”, but before there was an opportunity to say “but I’d like something else”, they left the table and never asked either of us again. Could use a better spirits selection (but that’s just my preference). We were also changed $3.00 because I ordered my whiskey neat?!

    Probably won’t go back, at least for awhile given better options in town for both food and cost. YMMV

  695. JD Smith 2021/05

    What can I say other than WOW this is top level food. We started the night with the roasted cauliflower and the pork belly appetizers well the cauliflower was not my favorite the wife definitely enjoyed it I however but the pork belly with the roasted corn was beyond expectations. Are main course she had the southern hospitality with mac and cheese which she enjoyed both and was and all of how good the chicken sandwich was. Her words were not just another chicken sandwich. I myself had the pork chop entree it was the best restaurant quality pork chop I have ever had that gravy on top of it I could drink it. For dessert we shared the peach bread pudding which was light, airy and bursting with flavors it wad the perfect ending to the meal.

    My mom and I are here for the first time yesterday. The food was amazing. What I most enjoyed was the fried brussel sprouts delicious. The service and ambiance was wonderful. I will definitely return again.

  703. Gregory Moran 2021/04

    Overall an amazing dinner experience! Pre dinner daiquiri was uniquely flavored with house made grenadine; our 2 appetizers(roasted cauliflower and brussel sprouts) could have used another 5-10 minutes in the oven because they felt a little underdone; finally, the coffee encrusted filet was perfectly cooked to medium.

    Without a doubt, this was one of the best restaurant experiences ever. Food, beverage and service were excellent. 5 stars is not high enough for this restaurant. Highly recommend.

    Loved the customer service of our waiter. I think he is AJ. Loved the atmosphere. My. Collards were gritty. We will definitely return.

    Lillie Pearl is FANTASTIC!!!!I heard about Lillie Pearl while dining at another restaurant in short pump. I was so excited to get there. A coworker and I went and we were very impressed. The food, drinks and the staff were awesome !! I went back a week later with another friend.

  711. JoanElaine Justice 2021/04

    Absolutely fantastic cuisine. Truly delectable with every bite. Started with the Brussel Sprout Appetizer which was roasted perfectly. I had the Lobster and Shrimp over Grits. Beautifully prepared with lots of both shrimp and lobster. My friend had the Buttermilk Fried Chicken and she said it was perfection. We had the Peach Cobbler Bread pudding and the Banana Pudding for desert and both were exceptionally good. Can’t wait to return. So many more amazing dishes to try. A must if you can visit.

    Utterly superb. Hands down the best food I’ve had in over a week travelling around the US. Simple, but expertly cooked, piping hot and tasty. Great service too. It’s a new restaurant, try and keep it going in these tough times.

    I will officially consider Lillie Pearl a premier food experience in Richmond for an extremely reasonable price! Date night no longer requires a credit application! But this is a must try! Every one of 10 different plates has been some of my best food experiences lately, but if I would recommend anything.. savory, must try the Brussels Sprouts, Carrots and especially the Shrimp and Grits! Just make sure to leave room for dessert… try the Peach Cobbler Bread Pudding! You may never think about dessert the same way again! A+ experience

  722. Mike Harbert 2021/03

    A solid selection of good southern comfort food infused with a dose of soul. Shrimp & grits was outstanding, as was the bread pudding. The shrimp were cooked “just right” and the bacon crumbles were an excellent addition. The Brussel Sprout appetizer – spot on with just enough heat in the sauce! Cornbread slices on the deli sandwiches were unexpected, but brought a hint of grandma’s house.

    Seriously – if you are looking for fancy, keep looking. If you’re looking for great food in a down home atmosphere – this is the place!
