Berkeley Hotel, Richmond, VA

The Restaurant is good--excellent service, but the hotel is marvelous. It has an old fashioned feel, but with every modern convenience and a very friendly and helpful staff.

Don't let the fact that this is a hotel restaurant fool you, because this place is REALLY good! I had the filet mignon and it was cooked to perfection! Each bite was tender enough to cut with my fork and the juices were full of flavor. To top it off the asparagus was grilled and yet still moist and tender.... More

Fried green tomatoes, fried oysters, shrimp with grits, filet mignon to perfection. Almost passed on dessert, but were persuaded to try the bread pudding and chocolate pecan pie. I normally would have passed as these tend to be too sweet for me. They were both heavenly, with a huge dollop of freshly whipped cream. Not to be missed.

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 and well prepared, but it wasn't as creamy... 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.

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.
