This time, we took an old friend her(her choice of one of her three favs in town as well as ours) and we decided to all eat light and had the Chopped Salad.

As a senior at W&M, I've made trips to Blue Talon numerous times. The previous time I went will probably be my last, sadly, not because I'm graduating, but because I just wasn't that impressed. I went for my birthday with my significant other. We did not have reservations. When we walked in at 7 PM on Sunday, the hostess... More

Thanks for sharing but please know that we - and I have to guess every restaurateur everywhere that cares about their industry - would rather you let them fix a mistake than to write off their business. The Sirloin should be neither cold nor tough, so clearly something wasn't right. On a sidenote, you'll have to forgive our waitress taking... More

Waitstaff needs better training. Shouldn't have to wave down a person to get drink refills or the check. Food quality not commensurate with prices.

Hi Mary Ann, You are right - our staff should certainly be more on top of your service than that and, I am proud to say, in most cases they are all over it! I hope you will reach out to me and let me know when you were here and what happened, as we would like to make things... More

I had dinner with my wife and two kids (age 8 and 5) and was very impressed. the waiter highly recommended the hamburger, which I was not previously consiering, but got and was amazed by how good it was. My 8 year old, who loves hamburgers, called it "the best meat ever". the meat from my wife's steak frites was... More

Hot day, went in for a beer and a snack and wanted to sit at the bar. Fantastic environment. I'll come back next time I'm in town.

Just ate dinner there and had an excellent meal. Our waiter, Michael F, made wonderful recommendations and the food was truly amazing. If you go there ask for Michael.

This is the place to eat in Williamsburg. Great service, quick without feeling rushed. Kayla was our server and she was wonderful. Our table had the lamb, steak frites, and chicken crepes. All three meals were fantastic. Desert was even better!

Thanks Elaine! We will be sure Kayla reads your kind words. Thanks for sharing with other readers/visitors to town. It really helps people get a sense of where they might like to eat. Hope you will come our way again soon! More

We had an awesome lunch here. My daughter, a mac and cheese lover, said the mac and cheese was the best she has ever had (I am not a fan of mac and cheese, per se, but this was really good!). But, the best part was the CHOCOLATE MOUSSE. They come out with a huge bowl and serve you at... More

We love French cuisine and this was the place. Try their hamburger with the egg on it. The French fries are great too, and Mac and cheese is famous there and it's really good. Tuesday's wine is half off. We just finished eating here and plan to come back tonight for the wine :)

I came here under the recommendation of a friend and expected a welcoming atmosphere and delicious food.....instead, we walked away extremely disappointed with the poor service, attitude, and empty restaurant. Our experience started on the empty back terrace which overlooks a parking lot...not exactly a "Williamsburg experience"! After being ignored by our waiter for 15 minutes (although there were no...

I am sorry you had such a rocky experience - there is no reason for any employee not to have brought a menu for you. But, to be fair, before you consign us to the scrap heap of failed restaurants, it is worth noting that we don't really have any control over the view that surrounds our restaurant. We've been...
