Richmond >Grapeleaf Restaurant
Closed. This restaurant has been closed for over a year. I think Cheeburger Cheeburger is there now.
Good food, good service- will come again!. Stopped in while picking up my son from college. Good middle eastern food. Food was great service was great- will come again!
Horrible customer service. I visited this place with my husband, having heard positive things about the resturant from co workers. The hostess seated the couple ahead of my husband and I then refused to seat us- stating it was "too late", then stating that the "air conditioner was broken." They seated another family while we were standing there! The manager came out and suggested we vsit another resturant "up the street." I have NEVER been so humiliated in my entire life. This is 2008 and we are supposed to be moving forward- not back to the Jim Crowe era. Then owner was even worse- stating "I'm not even from this country- how can I discriminate?" Refusing to seat customers from one ethnic group while seating tose from another is discriminatory!
Very satisfying. This is one of those "strip mall" surprises: who would have expected to find such a great little restaurant two doors down from the dry cleaners? The ambience is pretty bland, but who cares -- the food is wonderful. I've been here twice -- incredibly succulent lamb kabobs one time, delicious eggplant dish on another visit. Appetizers are also quite fine. Service was very attentive, especially for one visit when we were trying to finish up to get to a concert. Quiet, unassuming, and very satisfying.
Authentic Lebanese provides a different niche for this normally traditional neighborhood..
Nothing here will knock you out. Unobtrusive décor, simple white tablecloths, friendly, attentive staff and authentic Lebanese food provide a welcome relief from Americanized subs and steaks. University of Richmond staff and students now have a new neighborhood niche.
The lunch menu is small but authentic. Daily made-from-scratch tabbouleh is a perfect salad starter and the babaghanouge sandwich (roasted eggplant puree on a pita, $4.45) provides an interesting contrast. Dinner offerings include a nice mix of marinated beef, chicken and Mediterranean specialties. All entrees are served with colorful sides of creamy hummus, tabbouleh, saffron rice and a basket of warm pita triangles. Vegetarians can indulge in a wide choice of appetizers and three main entrees (falafel, chef's eggplant, $9.45) and fatayer (Lebanese pies, $6.95).
