  • "menu needs to be updated. needs more varied selections. beef tenderloin portion was less than i've ever been served at any restaurant. looked to be maybe 4 ounces."

  • "Appetizers were good, but mains left something to be desired. Service was good but I think the chef needs some changes in the kitchen. The meatloaf my husband had was not tasty and the Flounder needs to have the skin taken off after cooking. The crab bisque was delicious and the salads fresh too. Not sure I can recommend. Prices are a bit high too."

  • "The brunch main dish was very good but the side order of grits were very soupy. Also the door was left open and made it very uncomfortable."

  • "We enjoyed an outstanding meal, six years ago. The quality of the food was not the same, Saturday night. The lobster bisque was excellent but the snapper was mediocre. The snapper was slightly overcooked, sitting on a large serving of wild rice, and hidden by a pile of heavy spinach. The cappuccino was tepid and the coffee weak. The best part of the meal was our waiter, Will. He did a fine job of being attentive, not obtrusive."

  • "My husband and I were in town for Christmas, visiting my father who is in Assisted Living. It was so nice to come out to a nice restaurant for Christmas Day. I understand everyone should have the day off but it makes it extra special to have a wonderful place to eat for a lovely family meal. The food was great, the service was good...sorta got busy several times. Valet parking was available & appreciated."

  • "We were very disappointed! The food was mediocre at best, we have dined for half the price and three times the taste of the food."

  • "The place where we planned to have lunch wasn't open; booked a reservation at the Berkely Hotel for 30 minutes later and had our driver drop us off. From the moment we walked in, we were impressed. We were immediately seated at the window and the waiter immediately showed up to talk about the day's special. Even as more people showed up, he never missed a beat. The truffle fries were hot and very good; the chicken salad with apples was some of the best I've had and the service couldn't have been better. We were so impressed, we're considering staying at the Berkely during our next Richmond getaway. No matter what, we will definitely eat here again!"

  • "The Berkeley Hotel offers a terrific quality dining experience for anyone interested in outstanding food, great service, and a wonderful atmosphere. My daughter and I had an amazing Christmas Eve dinner at the Berkeley and highly recommend it to everyone."

  • "Onion soup was mediocre at best; fry's were dry and barely warm; coffee was weak and just warm. Overall very disappointing."

  • "Advertised as Christmas day lunch, $39 per person. Great atmosphere, attentive staff, very small amounts of delicious food on great big plates for a lot of money. They should call it a tasting menu and be honest about it. This was two appetizers for a hundred bucks."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "Comfortable seating for a moderate size group. Wonderful waitstaff. Food was good, but nothing special. I was a little disappointed that the dining room was not decorated more festively for Christmas. Our group really enjoyed the lunch."

  • "A dissappointment in every way from the less than mediocre service to the bad diner brunch food for everyone. One menu item sums it up the easiest the burger. It was served rare when ordered medium, evident even prior to cutting it open. It was returned to the kitchen and they resurface the burger which they charred and re-served. However it still wasn't cooked. The server promised to remove it from the ticket but he did not follow through. Then how could a since he was nearly non-existent during the entire meal. Don't waste your time or money."

  • "I had not been to the Dining Room at the Berkley for at least five years and was surprised how much it had declined in my opinion. Perhaps my memory is clouded but I recall the ambiance being much more luxurious, it seems the tables and chairs have been downgraded (again perhaps my memory) but I always viewed the Dining Room as a special place to take an out of town guest and I do not get that sense after our dinner this week. there was no host/hostess to meet us, we had to go into the bar to get seated. While the food was fine (good not great), the menu is much smaller than I remember it being. There was a time when the DR was a good competitor to LeMere, sorry to say not any more."

  • "Had a babysitter for first time in several months decided to try the restaurant because we had a gift voucher. Wait staff/service was attentive and helpful. The decore seemed a little dated and oldschool, gentlemen's smoking room style but tasteful. The food was cooked well and had good flavors but lacked any originality in appearance, just placed on a plate with no garnishments to make it look special. The price was fair for what we got. If you want a restuarant with decent food and quite enough so you can talk to your date without yelling this is a good spot. I would probably go back but I would not have called this fine dining, just OK dining."

  • "We thought that such a nice hotel would have a good restaurant but we were very disappointed. One meal was very salty and my meal was tasteless, Service was also rather poor. As we were entitled to continental breakfast with our room we enjoyed the breakfast much better the dinner but the service was indifferent."
