Fantastic experience

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.

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.

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 only complaint which I provided in a survey was that a fine establishment should not use a measured pour for their martinis. On a surprising... More

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. I cannot thank the staff enough for making it a very special evening. Many times, I have found people indifferent to the occasions being celebrated... More

I cant wait to go back. We wondered off the main road while touring Colonial Williamsburg and walked right into the lobby of this beautiful historic hotel. We started reading the menu and an lovely young woman encourage us to have a bit. I can not thank her enough, we had so much fun and really enjoyed out late lunch... More

We dined at the Regency for 2 breakfasts and 1 dinner. The breakfast is epic -- not to be missed. (We did however think it should be part of a package for guests at the Williamsburg Inn). Dinner was very fine, delicious and elegantly served. What was surprising, for breakfast and even more so for dinner, was how few people... More

We danced and dined and lingered and lingered because it was so special. Romantic, for sure. And kind of old fashioned, in a nice way. The little band on the weekends made it super special. Highly recommend
