This was an excellent discovery in Merchant Square with good choices for kids and adults. Salads were superb!

We sat outside where it was nice and quiet. Our server was attentive and friendly but not overly so. Food was good. Escargot was tasty and sauce was sopped up nicely by the bread that comes before the meal with nice cold butter. My skirt steak and truffle fries with green salad were tasty but VERY salty. I love salt... More

While strolling around Duke of Gloucester St reading menus, looking for a place to have dinner, we saw a sign for "more restaurants in back." We walked up to Blue Talon Bistro from the rear and immediately recognized it from having been to Retros (across the street) on a number of occasions. Hmmm... I'd never been, but our friends, who...

Went there on a recommendation from our son and family. Interesting menu and excellent food. I had the scallop dish and my husband had the duck salad. Both YUMMY! Had to wait for a table as we didn't make reservations. Suggest you make them and save the wait. We ate on the small back patio. Not much of a view,... More

We often go to the Loop. The pizza is very good although not the best ever but quick service and tasty. The prize here is the burgers and shakes. I have been a customer since they opened thois shop. I do like being able to call in my order.

This French restaurant in the heart of Williamsburg, Virginia came as a pleasant surprise. We booked in advance, and the restaurant was busy and vibrant on our visit. The staff were friendly, and the menu had a French / American character. Our mains (duck, scallops and liver) were all well up to standard. This restauarant seems to be popular with... More

I have eaten here a number of times and the food is generally very good. However, there are a few dishes that have left me a bit disappointed. I had the gratin of lump crab on a recent visit and would not order it again, but the chicken and asparagus crepes are wonderful! They also have a delicious chicken Caesar... More

The food was fabulous!!!!! We had lump crab on mashed potatoes. Delicious. Garlic and butter flavor was wonderful. We were there on a Tuesday, which was half priced bottles of wine, another plus. The problem was the speed of service and the bill. We were careful to wait for our wine to arrive before ordering our food, so we wouldn't... More
