Regency Room at The Williamsburg Inn Ratings and Reviews

We enjoyed the ambiance and the food at the Inn. Only complaint is the service was very slow. Probably due to maintaining a relaxing dining experience but over 2 hours was a little too long. It was not very busy but as mentioned I think they try to not rush you out.

My husband and I were engaged there and have been married for 13 years. We decided to have a date night there while in Williamsburg. The food was absolutely exquisite and the service exceptional. Mr. Polk was quite the waiter that night.

We had a wonderful evening on Saturday night. They have a piano player when we were there 6-7 and at 7pm a 3 piece group played great music to dance to, casual mood music not rock and roll. It was a wonderful evening except for the sidecar martini I ordered. The drink taste was great but they don't know how to fill a martini glass up. Even after my wife mentioned this they brought a very small amount out less than a 1/2 shot of mixer. I recommend you pass on the mixed drinks.

We know that this restaurant is in for a big change in the not-too-distant future and it's probably time to move on but my wife and I will cherish the memories of some very pleasant evenings in this dining room. The gracious hospitality, unhurried dining experience and warmth of the staff are a relic of a bygone age which we will sadly miss.
We wish everyone well with the future state and offer enormous thanks for the past.

Prices keep rising while food was not as good as previous times...no longer worth the 40-minute ride. Particularly wanted to dance during dinner, asked for a 7 PM reservation; was told the first available was 8PM. When we arrived at 8, the restaurant was less than half full. Very disappointed.

The service was very good and the live jazz band added to the ambience.
We had steak and my Wife's was not done to her liking and mine was barely warm. On the second try my Wife's meal was good and my steak was still barely warm. When spending this much money for a night out at a nice restaurant I expect my food to be hot.

Have eaten in the Regency dining room many times but not for several years. My wife and I were very disappointed to see how much downhill people dining with such casual attire. In fact we were shocked to see the dress of diners eating dinner. We will eat elsewhere next time we visit our beloved Williamsburg.

It was our 53rd wedding anniversary. We had previously visited the Open Table for our 8th (in 1971) and 49th (in 2012 where we met then Sen. Kerry) anniversary dinners. We have always considered this a special place unlike any other restaurant we visit (I even wear a tie). The matre' d met and called us by name and congratulating us on our anniversary. He and the waiter were attentive without being obtrusive. The piano player played a request (Moonlight in Vermont) which is special to my wife, who was born there and where we were married. All in all a delightful experience, and if we can, we will return there.

If you want to experience what true fine dining is, then visit the Regency Inn. Chef Travis Brust is a award wining executive chef and the experience he creates is nothing short of amazing. He is a true artist. The entire team was kind and attentive. I can't wait to go back and add another life memory from Chef Brust and his team at the Regency Inn. Bravo!!!

Fodd arrived after 30 minute wait was cold, not even close to lukewarm. Sent food back and replacement arrived in5 minutes! No way could fish and manicotti be cooked that quickly. Obviously food had been cooked prior and sitting around until an order was received. Expected much better for the high prices

We dined here for our wedding anniversary. It was the perfect setting for a quiet, personal dinner. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The dinner itself was part of the entertainment. We will definitely be back.

An outstanding restaurant experience!
We went for a (delayed) anniversary dinner. The staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and to help us celebrate. Service was the best I have had - ever - and the food was delicious. The room was quiet enough for conversation even though it was three-quarters full and there was a great pianist. I highly recommend the Regency Room for special occasions!

We took advantage of the Pris Fixe early bird dining, and our tab was well below what it would have been later in the evening. I believe that the food was every bit as good as it would have been from the full menu, and the staff could not have been nicer. They treated us just as well as they would have had we been paying three times as much for dinner. Their pianist began at 6:00. He provided great background music, and the setting was setting was just great. A very nice country club feel without being at all pretentious.

We were celebrating our anniversary at the inn because we had our wedding dinner there 16 yrs earlier. We've been a few times over the years and the cuisine/service has ebbed and flowed between good and ok. Our Saturday evening dinner proved to be the bet experience we've had there since our wedding. The service was excellent and the cuisine was inventive and delicious. Nice band you could dance to ( soft not loud or invasive to conversation). A little pricey but worth it. Would definitely go again.

We were celebrating my parents 60th wedding anniversary and it was a perfect evening. The food was outstanding, service was exceptional, the dining room was beautiful... They congratulated my parents for this special occasion, which was very kind and thoughtful. It was a truly special evening in an exceptional restaurant.

Absolutely over the top outstanding - - everything from the impeccable service, the atmosphere, and superb (simply superb!) food. Nothing lacks here nor needs to be changed, a complete gem from top to bottom.

We chose the Regency Room to have dinner after our wedding ceremony. The staff went out of their way to make our dinner an event to remember. The soft piano music and elegant décor created just the right ambience for a celebration of a special occasion. Thank you for making our night so special.

Very historic but dining room dated. Food was nothing special, not nearly as good as I recall from years ago. Service was excellent. Pianist was very good, but I still remember their having a harpist years ago, which was a very special experience and memory.

We found the menu quite limited. More problematic was that the value simply wasn't there. I got the filet - $54 and it was no more than 5-6 oz. The starch consisted of five potato slices smaller than a french fry. This for the same pricing one pays at the best NY or Chicago steak houses. We went home hungry. No wonder the dining room was almost empty. Too sad - 10 years ago the place was packed! I will say that the hotel's GM was quite responsive to my comments the next day and promised to share them with the chef and others.

We celebrated a significant anniversary, and found it very romantic. Only about six tables were filled on a Wednesday evening. Thus, the noise level was nonexistent, allowing us to enjoy the pianist play of older show tunes and standards.
The service was quite refined. We are not oenophiles and were gratified that the server did not react in a haughty way when we simply ordered two glasses of non-exalted red wine. We were seated by a window and enjoyed the views of the hotel grounds.
The lobster bisque and Crabmeat Randolph were both enjoyable, as were the breads, the sorbet and complimentary appetizer (gravlox that evening). The filet of beef was memorable; the braised short rib less so, but still excellent.
Note that this restaurant only serves dinner Wednesday through Saturday evenings.

How great to go to a place where people dress up for dinner, service and food is impeccable, the pianist played wonderfully, and the pace was great! It was a very special evening as we were celebrating our anniversary. The Regency Room at the Inn made it another moment to remember. We can't wait to return.

It is a pricey dinner. Not exactly worth the price but it was a fun evening. I probably won't go back simply because for the cost. I did not leave feeling it was a 4 star experience.
The service was excellent and they were highly attentive.
The main course, filet of beef for my boyfriend, duck for me, were both delicious. The appetizer, Caesar salad was underwhelming. For the price, I had higher expectations but then again it was just a salad. My date had the lobster bisque. It was good but not spectacular. Both not worth the price though.
The drink selection was very good
