Place was empty (our reservation at 8) and it took almost 20 minutes after reservation to get sat while manager/hostess barked at the servers about getting the tables set for the following morning - this seemed to be the priority (not taking care of customers already there)

This place is so good we ate dinner there twice in our four night stay. Colorado venison chili is my favorite. Salads are super fresh. Menu is varied enough so you can eat here lunch or dinner ( menu is the same). Service is outstanding and very friendly. If weather permits you can dine outside on the terrace.

My family and I enjoyed our waitress (sorry, no name given). She suggested hidden gems in the menu, happy to assist other servers and was so personal yet professional in her work. The other wait staff was just as friendly to us. It was a nice treat to dine here. Btw, the Food selection was very tasty and ambiance gracious to diners. A nice treat for our family. Don't forget to smell the lovely flower arrangements. Heavenly!
Upscale, historic location with views
If you like historic places go here. The restaurant is located in the rear of the Williamsburg Inn in historic, colonial Williamsburg. It's not cheap but you get great service, great food and a lovely atmosphere. Not for everyone but if you want class, this is it. They offer valet parking but you can park in the lots available at no charge. Dress appropriately.
The dinner at the Terrace Room was the only part of our stay at a the Inn that was not a perfect 10. The food was average: our friends ordered Chicken Pot Pie and found it very dry. I ordered a salad which was a few bites at best, and had what seemed to be crushed or old cherry tomatoes. My friend had the same experience with his salad, and we both had to pick the tomatoes out and leave them on the plate. The service was slow: although there were few diners, the meal took 2 hours. The one highlight was a really talented guitarist who played many of our classical favorites. There are so many other excellent dining opportunities in Williamsburg that I would not spend another evening at the Terrace Room.

At the last minute we decided to give this a try and it was the perfect way to end our last night in Williamsburg. The view was beautiful and the service was outstanding. Nicholas, our server, was friendly, knowledgable and one of the kindest people we have ever met. The menu selection was perfect for our family and everyone had exactly what they were in the mood for. Fantastic!
Terrace Room food a miss
I had high expectations but the food misses the mark again and again. Lovely venue and bar, perfect for cocktails and meet-ups. But the food just isn't worth it. 4 diners and each disappointed. Luke warm and under-cooked veggies in pot pie, ceasar salad looked like chopped salad with tiny store-bought-like croutons. Mac and cheese dry and tasteless. Service was attentive and aimed to please but food needs major tweaking.
A pleasant surprise!
A pleasant surprise! The Colonial Williamsburg website describes the Terrace Room at the Inn as a more casual dining experience. We found it to be a lovely, quiet venue with delicious food and pleasant and attentive servers. First class all around and a wonderful experience! Do try the chicken pot pie.
We ended up at the Inn when the more casual places were booked. It was a great experience. While not super kid-friendly, there was a child menu which made it more affordable. The dining room was very formal which made us leery about bringing a toddler but staff was great and attentive and the food was delicious.
Fantastic food, atmosphere, and service
The service was impeccable right from the start. The bread server brought us our choice of sourdough or pretzel roll and was charming from the moment we saw him. We had an excellent wine service along with the best oysters rockafeller I've ever had. The entrees were perfectly cooked.
The atmosphere was wonderful and romantic and made for a great date night for my wife and I. The regency style was classic and beautiful. Overall a wonderful experience.
Great Food; Very Slow Service
Would try it again with a different waitress. Very slow, mildly friendly and inattentive. Never refilled water. seemed perturbed that we didn't want to order a full bottle of wine. Food delivery took FOREVER. Three hours for 2 courses? Absurd.
A beautiful room, impeccable service, and a great selection of food and drink items all conspire to make a visit to the Terrace Room a special treat. The ambiance is that of an elegant club - one that feels far apart from the usual tourist eating spots in Williamsburg. Highly recommended.
