Elegant dining from a different era

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... read more

Ok I'm up for different food combinations but the chef apparently decided fennel was the secret ingredient for the night. We started with a gift from the chef-Apple fennel shooter. It was okay but most at our table did not consume. Next I missed the fine print on my BLT salad. The bacon was candied with fennel. So the salt... More

Thank you for taking the time to evaluate us. I have met with my chef and we are embarrassed to have that much flavor profile in the offerings the evening you dined with us. I am so pleased you enjoyed the entrees as well as our service. I hope you will give us another opportunity to change your perception of... More

We were turned away at the entrance of the restaurant. We were told there was a dress code which we were aware of and they called it "resort casual". They actually have a dress code that is considered "business casual". "Resort casual" can include khaki and Bermuda shorts. We were able to celebrate our 17th wedding anniversary elsewhere.

Had reservations for 9 including 3 children--grandparents, parents & children spending a lovely week in Colonial Triangle. One of our sons had on a nice pair of Bermuda shorts and was told he did not meet dress code. We had checked website and it said the dress code was more relaxed. Could not find on website what that meant. Hostess... More

Lots of very old couples, who wanted to dance. Though this has won food awards, I couldn't figure out why. The food was uninspiring and not great but pricey. Service is very slow though their are lots of servers. Tried the crepe starter it was average, not particularly hot or tasty. Pork snit zeal was better but the spatzle was... More

The service was superior. The meal was poor. We had fennel in almost every course. When we expressed our disappointment the wine steward said, "what would you like me to do? Slap the chef? ". What class! Not returning ever here.

Great food, attentive wait-staff who know the menu and help you avoid allergens, a wonderful wine selection. Live music and dancing in a wonderful relaxing setting overlooking the golf course.

Gracious dining, excellent waiters, beautiful setting, excellent food. Not a place to take 5 children under 12 years old who just want to eat and run.

We dined at the Regency Room at the Williamsburg Inn our first night. They no longer require jackets and ties but appreciate it when your dress for dinner. The food and service was excellent.

My wife and I chose the Regency Room for our 30th anniversary last week. We have dined there before, on a number of occasions, but this was our first time for a big anniversary celebration.
