Excellent food and great service. They had a nice wine list. Not much ambiance but still nice inside. Located in Colonial Williamsburg area.

Do not go at 1015am as you will be promptly told you can not eat then...not till 1100am. Thanks for the heads up? The chicken and cheese crepes were tasty but swimming in the sauce. It was too much for me but others may enjoy that much. Parking in the back is available but you can not enter except in... More

You'll feel right at home with the charm of this bistro, good wine list and wonderful selection of classic french food. I had the scallops - perfectly cooked - not overdone. Son had steak cooked perfectly medium rare. Great service and love the charming Blue Roosters.

Food was amazing, price was very reasonable with the big size serving. Tried the Pork sandwiches and shared for 2 people. Good things we didn't over order because the waitress told us that the sandwiches was huge and tasty. She didn't lie :)

Food is delicious and atmosphere is top notch. Our waitress this time was a bit quiet, but she was very nice and even took our picture for us at the end of our meal.

The scallops were wonderful! Our server was extremely professional. I wish I had written down her name so I could praise her here. I've told everyone about her professionalism and attentiveness because it made our experience that much better. I really enjoyed the atmosphere here. It is fine dining without the stuffiness. Oh, AND they have great wine at reasonable... More

Like many Blue Talon patrons, my daughter attends W&M and we go there when we visit her. So far everything we've had is good, and portions are large enough to provide her some leftovers for the dorm fridge. The chocolate mousse dessert is great. I wish they'd open one of these here in Arlington, VA.

Best chicken Caesar salad ever. And save room for the chocolate mousse - it comes around in a huge serving bowl and you dictate how much you want. Portions are generous and service is cheerful and friendly. Prices are reasonable. A great place for lunch after shopping in nearby Merchants Square.

You sound like you might be on the Merchant Square payroll! We love the enthusiasm - and you're not wrong.

I live in Williamsburg; in fact, about a 10 minute walk from the Blue Talon and have had many very good lunches there. My dinner experience was disappointing to say the least. First off when you order a Martini at the Bar during lunch you get a very good regulation martini; however, the dinner martini is half the size of... More

I was disappointed to see your comments, particularly from someone who lives so close! The problem seems to be twofold: I thought our menu was clear but apparently not. Our description says " traditional salad of grilled, flaked tuna..." as in, we grill fresh tuna, then chill it, then break it up into flaked tuna. It appears you were expecting... More
