Berret's Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

We went to Berret's on a Tuesday night because it was the only full-meal restaurant open within the range of the Williamsburg Lodge shuttle. The food was fussy and tasteless. Mine was seafood in parchment--salmon, scallops, shrimp, and vegetables. The dish had no character and little texture. My wife had an entrée with a variety of seafood. Same result. It reminded me of all-you-can-eat-buffet food. And service was slow.

The food was amazing! Ordered the blue and red, white, and blue platters. Great flavor and arrived quickly. We made a reservation so we didn't have to wait very long. We were seated fairly close to our reservation time. That is why I marked the service 4 stars instead of 5. People with the same party size (2) came in after us for the same reservation time and were seated ahead of us. All in all...great experience and will go back.

Restaurant was highly recommended by the innkeeper at the B&B. The seating was a little tight, but not too bad. Started with the cheese and fruit plate...the strawberry basil marmalade was the highlight. Local Alewerks Octoberfest was a nice pairing.
I ordered the rockfish and fried oysters, which was fine, but a little bland. My wife had the parchment special with salmon, scallops, and shrimp. It was delicious and a well portioned, so I found myself enjoying her choice over mine.

The food and service at Berret's is always very good. The only thing that I would change is that there seems to be a strong unpleasant smell in some of the dining areas that is not Seafood related. This time it was particularly strong in the room that we were seated in.

Excellent food & service, in a wonderful dining atmosphere!
We've admired the restaurant several times on recent visits to the area, and finally got a chance to try it out. Love that they offered reservations through Open Table! We arrived a bit before our reservation time, and were immediately welcomed into this lovely restaurant. It had a very cozy feel, which was perfect for our family dinner. The seafood & steak selections we ordered were perfectly prepared & delicious. We also had the crab dip as an appetizer, and it was awesome! Our server (I wish I could remember her name), was amazing, very friendly, helpful with dining suggestions, and always there when we needed something! I highly recommend Berret's Restaurant, and hope to get back there again myself sometime soon!

We had company visiting who have diet restrictions and Berrets was the first thing that came to mind. They easily found something to eat and loved every bite as did we. And our waiter Sean was so nice and helpful explaining everything. It's a wonderful place to eat

We were in Williamsburg on a mini vacation. We had such a wonderful experience at Berret's that we went back a second night. I have a dairy allergy but they were able to create a very tasty fish meal. The staff really cared and management was wonderful too. Don't be afraid to try it.

This has long been our favorite restaurant in Williamsburg, and for good reason. We had a delightful meal there as usual. Perfect calamari, Tommy Leggett oysters, brie in puff pastry, shrimp - everything was beyond perfect as usual. It is so nice to have a gourmet restaurant within driving distance that we can rely on for terrific food and lovely service.

We sat outside which was very nice. Waitress was nice. My families meals were ok but mine was the worst I've ever had! I got the fish In parchment paper special. It had absolutely no flavor whatsoever. Totally bland and disappointing! We spent $168 not including tip.. A total waste!

My wife and I were visiting from California. Saw advertisement on Yelp and decided to visit. New England Clam Chowder was great along with the entire meal. The waiteress (Teresa) made us feel very welcome with her positive attitude and professionalism. Good customer service is imperative. Thank you, for a pleasant evening.

This was a family rendezvous arranged to meet during their vacation. Once again the service, food and ambiance were outstanding. Everyone could choose from a varied menu the dish they prefer and all enjoyed. Music added to the occasion and nobody rushed us as we caught up on summer doings. A highlight were the complimentary "sticker buns" that started the meal.
