Great presentation

I ate very lightly the night I ate here. Ordered the grilled shrimp off the appetizer menu. Served in a great presentation and were excellently prepared. The cocktail sauce appeared to be homemade and was excellent. Even brought fresh bread out with them. I ordered crime brûlée to go. It was good... read more

A first class restaurant conveniently located in the heart of Richmond's downtown business district. This small but adequate restaurant has a friendly and efficient staff and a creative chef. A perfect place for an intimate dinner or a small group.

Cute and quaint with awesome menu choices for dinner and breakfast. We ate twice when we stayed at the hotel. The staff is really warm and friendly. This was a wonderful experience!

We attended the Restaurant Week event at the Dining Room. Few tables were occupied on our night. Service was excellent as was the menu. Great starter garden salads, nicely dressed. My steak was nicely medium rare although I had ordered it to be medium. My spouse's pork loin was a little too pink for her but she ate the well... More

I ordered the crab bisque which contained too much Sherry that tasted as if it was not allowed to cook into the dish because it had a very bitter taste. However, the fried green tomatoes were very good.

We went to the Berkley this past Sunday for brunch, after attending a wedding in Midlothian the evening before. It took an hour to get our appetizer, which was a bread basket. When our food arrived, I was happy with my french toast, but my fiance ordered one of the quiche dishes and there was mold on the bottom! He... More

The waitress/bartender was very friendly and gracious. Unfortunately the food, despite a strong recommendation from the hotel staff, was average. I ordered soup that was served room temperature -- off-putting to say the least. The rest of my lunch was average and bland at best. I would not return, even though the room is attractive and the service was good.... More

My sister and I attended 2 events at the Berkely "Crepe Expectations" and "A Very Virginia Sparkling Wine Brunch at The Berkeley Hotel". Both events were terrible executed. The crepes at Crepe Exepectations were cold and took a very long time to make it to the table, the wine pairing was often wrong and the server was terribly confused the... More
