Must do for breakfast

This is a very high end restaurant, incredibly beautiful, serene, and with excellent service. I enjoyed a delightful breakfast there and would happily return.

I'd love to say that the steak frites or the Atlantic salmon was delightful, but unfortunately, I couldn't even see the decor of the restaurant, as I was turned away for not wearing "dress pants" by a snooty, I-am-definitely-better-than-you-because-I-work-at-this-restaurant hostess. I held my tongue and said nothing to her, but it is a terrible disservice to the proprietors of the... More

I apologize that you had a less than hospitable experience and were unable to accommodate you. The Regency Room is a fine dining restaurant and as such does have a specific dress code that is posted in detail on the Colonial Williamsburg website. On the OpenTable web site the dress code for the Regency Room is listed as “business casual”.... More

My boyfriend and I had made reservations for this resturant for our first night in Williamsburg. We had just drove in from New York and quickly got ready so that we would make the reservation in time. Upon entering the restaurant, the hostess informed us that my boyfriend did not meet the restaurant's dress code requirements and would be unable... More

This was by far the highlight of our trip. The food was wonderful, the staff very friendly and Robert Hodge played the piano. We ended up staying 3 hours enjoying the piano music.

We ate breakfast at the Regency room of the Williamsburg Inn as a part of a vacation package offered by the Inn. The breakfast buffet was outstanding. There were the ususal assortment of egg, bacon, and sausage entrees but the best part was the stone ground grits and steel cut oatmeal. If you have never had stone ground grits, you... More

Staying at the Williamsburg Inn for three nights and not dining at the five-star hotel's signature restaurant, the Regency Room, is like staying at the Inn at Little Washington and opting for a Big Mac at McDonald's. It is all about the experience, from the time you are seated until you pay the check. We've been to the Regency Room... More

Beautifully appointed fine dining room. A rare gem these days. Had our Anniversary dinner with window view and best of all a live pianist playing a grand piano. Fine dining at its best!

Excellent food and service too bad it was not more busy as I remembered in the past.. dinner on average takes about 2 and a half to three hours depending on the courses.. the crab crepe was excellent as was the Pork Schnitzel... did not have dessert since it was the same dessert menu as the Terrace room offered.

While I view the Williamsburg Inn as an occasional treat for an overnight visit, I make it a point to dine at the Inn's Regency Room on every Friday and Saturday night when I visit, regardless of where I overnight in town. The musical entertainment on Friday and Saturday evening -- a stroll through the Great American Songbook -- makes... More

We had an outstanding dinner. Everything was a class act from fantastic piano music during dinner to the great service provided. In general I would say this is not a place for small children unless they are accustomed to a fine dining environment. It is a great place for couples or groups to celebrate a special occasion. While jackets are... More
