A very enjoyable meal. A child-friendly restaurant but the children were not too noisy.
We enjoyed our meal, had a very pleasant half bottle of wine and a pleasurable evening.
We will never be in that area again, so I can't say we would return ..... but if we were-we would!

Passing through Williamsburg on a college tour. This was our fancy meal for the trip. The food was very good, though a bit pricey. They are catering to a tourist crowd, so the other patrons were mostly that. They have a nice outdoor bar area next door but we were there during the heat wave so ate inside.

Found this restaurant last April when we visited and enjoyed it so much .
I made sure we visited again this past trip. Wonderful service and the food is really wonderful.
It will always be a "go to" when we visit.

Had dinner on the 4th after a movie at the Kimball. I had a red wine flight which is very good value--about 5 ounces of your choices of three reds off the menu. My entree was a salmon special with crab and hollandaise sauce. Very good and a generous portion. My husband had a ravioli with crab that he enjoyed.

The chef is concerned about the meal and presentation. Portions are somewhat on the smaller side but the artistry makes up for it. Service a little lackluster ambience somewhat aged but it is quite convenient if you're downtown historic Williamsburg. Kids menus are convenient and offer All American Cuisine if not interested in Seafood

The food was very good and the location is nice in Merchants Square. The restaurant seemed a bit understaffed as waitresses were also busing tables. Our server was very helpful and nice. I would recommend as it was overall a nice meal.

We noted on our reservation that it was our 16 Wedding Anniversary, and that we wanted a "nice" table. When we arrived, the Manager at the podium did not even look up at us or say hello; he was talking to a young new hire hostess. We had to say hello, first. He did not even comment on our Anniversary. We were ushered to a bad table, and I had to ask for a better table. The manager had no personality, and was not friendly. We will never go back.

The food was terrible. We were there in 2015 and it was going down hill then, we should have known better this year..shame on us.
I ordered Salad with chicken. No salad dressing and the chicken was over cooked..no flavor.
My husband ordered the Salmon with a "special sauce" that appeared and tasted like Campbell's sauce.
No more. We went to 2nd Street Cafe and it was wonderful, highly recommend this cafe. A little out of the way in that it isn't on the beaten path, but well worth the extra 5 mile drive.

Excellent dinner and service and we will be going back . Berrett's has been on my list to try for a while and I'm sorry we didn't try it sooner. Everyone in our party of 4 said their dinner was excellent.
A great find!

I've been to Berret's many times, though not recently. The dishes we ordered were uninspired, okay but not great. Blackened Mahi-mahi was served with bechamel sauce that had no flavor, over unseasoned white rice. Fried oysters and fired green tomatoes were heavy on the breading and lacked seasoning.
We were seated on the patio area of the ...
We were seated on the patio area of the restaurant (not the pub area) and it was very quaint and relaxing. There was a corn hole game set up just a few yards away and several children were playing while parents enjoyed the lovely evening. I had the Blue plate that had many types of crab and some fried shrimp/oysters as well. The food was delicious and fresh. The bread was awesome as well. I would recommend.
Another perfect meal
Berrets remains our favorite restaurant and last Wednesday's lunch once again showed us why. Great calamari with both tentacles and rings and wonderful dipping sauces, Tommy Leggett oysters, and baked brie in puff pastry with a delightful chutney and grilled shrimp... and everything prepared and served perfectly. Plus a special treat as Wednesdays feature all bottles and half-bottles of wine for half price! Everything was wonderful; we can't wait to go back.
