We had a delicious breakfast in the Dining Room. The waiter was very attentive. The coffee was amazing. The fruit bowl was perfect! Would eat there again.

The Dining Room at the Berkeley Hotel in Richmond provided a very pleasant location and good food for a recent birthday dinner. The list of entrees was not large, but there was a good variety of selections. A crab bisque starter was very rich and creamy, and I would highly recommend it. The shrimp and grits main course was a... More

For such a well-located hotel, I was shocked that I was nearly the only person in the dining room for dinner and alone at breakfast the next day. One waiter and a bar man was the skeleton staff, and the service seemed scattered and uneven. Maybe it was the food? I am not a foodie; certainly I don't remember anything... More

I am a Jersey Shore girl, but the crab cakes I had at the Berkeley were better than any I have had around home! My husband's braised short ribs were as good if not better than the best he has had before. And the sides included with the meal

Chesapeake omelet is perfect, fried green tomatoes and grits are Virginian. We did send the quiche back to be heated more,, and had to remind Christopher to bring... More

Not a huge selection but a good variety of entrée choices. The crab bisque was delicious! I had the tenderloin and my husband had crab cakes. Both were good choices and we actually shared! Nice quiet atmosphere and an attentive server. We were glad there was a nice restaurant in the hotel since it was raining and late in the... More

Lunch meeting with five others. We picked because we were able to carry on a conversation with noise and distractions. Good food and presentation. Good service and not rushed.

Great food great service. The menu is limited but the black eye pea hummus is so good. Valet parking is the way to go in this area.
