The Rockefeller Room at The Williamsburg Inn Ratings and Reviews
Tried the Rockefeller Room for Fathers Day Brunch. Very enjoyable, love the new look of the Williamsburg Inn. Charles our server was excellent, as was the rest of the staff. Food was a little slow coming out of the kitchen but well worth the wait. We tried the waffles with duck and the salmon appetizers which were fantastic. For my breakfast, I ordered the Rockefeller Benedict which I would highly recommend as everyone was trying to "taste" mine. We will go back again and enjoy a cocktail on the back porch. This is definitely worth a try.
Extremely poor and inattentive service. Did not even get water for almost 30 minutes. Never offered bread. Not what we expect (or have experienced before) at the Williamsburg Inn. Not sure what was wrong on Saturday night, but at this price point, good, attentive service should be a no brainer.
We returned after 35 years for an anniversary event with our grown daughter. The service was spectacular as was the food. Everything was letter perfect. Not an inexpensive dining option by any stretch of the imagination, but one that was worth every penny. If you are looking for someplace to eat for a very special occasion, put this one at the top of the list.
Outstanding! We celebrated our anniversary at the new, modern and elegant Rockefeller Room at the Williamsburg Inn this weekend. Chief Burst with Sommelier Harper created a Tasting Menu with wine for us and our guests. The Inn’s culinary staff demonstrating the exceptional fine dining that can be experienced in the Rockefeller Room. A combination of traditional, filet wrapped in bacon; a flair of the south, duck fat fried green tomatoes salad; and an Intermezzo of red beet and ginger enhanced our six course meal. The Inn is a not to be missed experience for fine dining while in Williamsburg.
The food, service and ambiance were exemplary. Charles B, our server, was a pleasure to work with. Since it was our anniversary, he kept bringing tidbits from the kitchen to help acknowledge the event. When we go back, we will definitely ask for him again. The only drawback was the food was very expensive, but very good.
However, working with Open Table was a problem. I ordered flowers through Open Table to be delivered to our table and in tryin to verify that they would be there (a time before they were not), I had to jump through hoops, and make several phone calls, to ensure the flowers were there. They were.
A pleasant surprise. They still have a steep hill to climb to achieve true Five Star status (right now they're about 3.5 overall), but they've begun the journey. And until recently they didn't even have a map. It will be fascinating to see where they go from here.
The Williamsburg Inn has always been a special place for people to have a unique dining experience. The food has always been exceptional as has the ambience. This is no longer true. The ambience is typical of many restaurants: okay but not great. The food was flavored with various spices (because that was done in historical times) but the spices provide little enhancement to the taste and, in some instances, interfere with the taste. I'm not sure how soon we will return.
