Recommended Barret's to friends visiting Williamsburg from Texas and drove from Richmond to meet them. They were so impressed with everything that they plan to return for dinner before they go home!
I have eaten here many times and have always had delicious food and excellent service.

Our dinner was perfect. The parchment special was most enjoyable and topping it off we ordered the warm cobbler with vanilla ice cream. The online reservation service made it easy to get a reservation too. Please take advantage of that option!@

Very accommodating staff and reasonable price for the taste quality of food. I would advise that persons with disabilities make a reservation and ask for accessible tables. The entry is very narrow and would be difficult for wheelchairs.
Also no vegan options other than 1 modified salad so be warned.

Despite making a reservation, we still had to wait about 30 minutes for our table. It was very busy, day after Thanksgiving. Dining room was very full and they had a fire going so it was quite warm. Food and service was incredible! Drinks were great!

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely dinner at Berretts on Thanksgiving. A traditional turkey dinner was on the menu and it was very good. The service was excellent. We think the costs are very reasonable, making Berretts a great value.

We went for Thanksgiving lunch, the food was displayed creatively, and delicious as well. The staff and waiter were friendly and attentive. This was the first time we went, we will probably go back again sometime in the future.

As new empty nesters, we treated ourselves to Berret's for Thanksgiving. Our food was absolutely delicious. The location of our reserved table was disappointing. I felt like we were sitting in a closet. We could see the fireplace in the next room and were jealous of the atmosphere. Other than that, it was nice.

I have been to Colonial Williamsburg many times, but never before noticed Berret's because, while it is in the Market Square area, it is located on Francis Street, one block over from the main street, Duke of Gloucester. Berret's specializes in fish/seafood dishes, but offers a completed menu. I had the broiled Cod with Crawfish sauce. My Wife had a Shrimp dish. Both where excellent. Berret's has a large outdoor bar and seating area, which looked very inviting. However, as it was late November, the outdoor area was closed until spring. I will definitely try it, if I am in Colonial Williamsburg again in better weather.

The food was very good we took another couple, their first time at Berret's, for Sunday brunch. They seemed to enjoy the food. It began with their wonderful cinnamon rolls. We ordered the cheese appetizer it was okay but not great. Two of us ordered the brunch dishes which were very good, the omelet and the crab cake with poached egg. The other two ordered off the lunch menu which was also very good. We all enjoyed our deserts. The one major complaint we all had is that we felt as though we were cramped like sardines in can. The tables are tiny and there is NO room to relax and enjoy your meal. Makes the dining experience uncomfortable.

The food was delicious. We were visiting William and Mary and this was the perfect place to come to after a long day of walking around and being in the car. The food was wonderful and the service was first rate. I would definitely come again and recommend.

Another wonderful lunch at Berret's. Perfect martinis accompanied our appetizer which was, as usual, their calamari that is by far the best around and ranks in the top three of any we've had anywhere. It's served with 2 fabulous dipping sauces. Heaven. Next two types of roasted oysters on the half-shell, Tommy Leggett oysters from the York River and also oysters from the James River. They were both terrific and it was fun to compare the two. And I can't say enough about the delicious sweet potato ravioli with asparagus and sage cream. It was an incredible entree; just writing about it makes me want to have some more of it right now. Another absolutely perfect dining experience at our favorite restaurant. How we wish it wasn't 40 minutes from home!

Enjoyed dining at Berret's while visiting family in Williamsburg. Sunday brunch sitting outside with a wonderful musician playing provided a wonderful ambiance. The she-crab soup was excellent. The Brie puff pastry with shrimp and chutney would have been much better if the pastry was fully cooked. Service was great. Overall. We enjoyed it and would return again.
