It is amazing. This used to be a flea bag hotel that was used as student dorms for a local college. It is now one of the most expensive places to stay in Richmond. The food is good but parking can be tricky at best.

Stayed in at the Berkeley for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We would highly recommend the happy hour sampler plate. We also had a lovely dinner on our last night. I highly recommend the short ribs, no fat and fork tender. Both our entrees came with some of the best collard greens I've ever had. We also had... More

This was our first time to dine at this restaurant. The food was very well prepared and service was impeccable. Nice quiet atmosphere compared to Tobacco Company which is directly across the street and very loud. We will return due to our excellent experience.

Got here for the happy hours. Good Virginia beers and the suggested sampler was great. Fried oysters, fried okra, pickled shrimp and fried green tomatoes were the items. Also orders a dried fruit and cheese plate then later the mini crab cakes. Everything was good and Mark did an excellent job. All the staff were very friendly.

Ate here as part of a dining package while staying at the hotel. Flavorful entrees but not for a meat and potatoes person (see menu on hotel's website). Shrimp and Grits had fried cheddar grit cakes with country ham and spinach sauteed along with the shrimp. All in all an interesting and untypical flavor combination but on the salty side... More

I have dined at The Berkeley on many occasions, most recently two evenings ago as part of a recruitment effort. The dining area is elegant and quiet which lends itself to good conversation. The food is consistently delicious and prepared with a Southern flair. Vegetarian options are available. Desserts are SPECTACULAR. The Berkeley is located in the Shockhoe Slip area... More
