Berret's Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

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.

We have long enjoyed Berret's, but it has been a long time since we have dined there. We arrived a bit early and sat at the bar while waiting for tables to be ready. After asking if we needed anything, the bartender kindly set two tall glasses of ice water in front of us while we waited- so thoughtful! It set the stage for us to be pleased. We found the food delicious. Fresh and well prepared. Nothing disappointed. The service began very well. Unfortunately, we finally had to find our server after waiting quite a while when we were ready to leave. A small thing over all, but not the way you want a fabulous meal to end. Regardless, we highly recommend and will be back!

My wife and I had a pleasant lunch at Berret's. While the restaurant provided a welcome respite from the brutal heat, the quality of the food and the atmosphere would have been equally worthwhile in a more moderate climate.

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.
