Diner Reviews
  • "If only the chef would could the beans. Not just give them a quick blanche. Inedible. The menu is not innovative. The combinations don't work."

  • "After several disappointing meals elsewhere, this was a huge relief. Excellent food, Great service, nice atmosphere. Seafood was incredibly fresh, well seasoned, elegant plating. Service was just right."

  • "Great food, w/ an emphasis on the freshest of fish & oysters. The beet & pear salad is a must w/ great ingredients & a delicious goat cheese for savory. Our party of 3 foodies was totally satisfied & will return repeatedly. Servers are friendly & pleasant making a visit a joyous,experience."

  • "The first time my wife and I came to this restaurant, we were favorably impressed. However, this followup visit was disappointing. The food was served lukewarm - seemed like it had been sitting around for a while before being served. And the filet mignon and shrimp combination (surf and turf - how can you mess that up?) did not have a particularly good flavor."

  • "Food was well prepared and presented. A la carte pricing boosted the total quickly but everything was well worth the trip to Williamsburg; especially the Waypoint oysters."

  • "my friend and i met for lunch, which was my second visit this month. our waiter, eric, explained the special and i changed my mind from what i had arrived planning on ordering to the ahi tuna he described. i cleaned my plate, literally, which is rare for me. the service matched up to the tuna. my friend had the salmon salad and loved it too. great menu. great food. oh and... i was escorted under an umbrella to my car in the pouring rain. very classy touch."

  • "A frequent visitor to Waypoint. The food, service, ambiance always deliver. This time, however, one waiter was rather stiff and awkward. I had answered him that we would like to enjoy our cocktails as we were catching up after about a year and would order later. He kept coming back wanting to tell us the specials so we had to give in and listen. Then he continued wanting to take our order even tho we had not looked at the menu and still wanted to wait. His buddy or helper was quite cordial and kept the water glasses filled without interrupting. Perhaps the other one was new. I will be back and my friend who was a first-timer was quite impressed other than...."

  • "The waiter had no personality. My fish was very disappointing because it didn't have much flavor. Overpriced for what we got. It would have been helpful if the waiter made suggestions. Previous visits were much better."

  • "This was our 2nd visit to Waypoint and, as usual, it was flawless. The drinks were well-done; the service was perfect; the food was on point; and the ambiance makes you feel alone, even in a large room! We will return again and again."

  • "The food was outstanding! They started us with three different kinds of homemade bread along with house made pickles, ham spread, and butter. My husband had the weinersnitzel and loved it. The staff was friendly and professional. We had a blast and we'll be back!"

  • "I had been looking forward to trying this restaurant out and the food (quality and taste) to cost ratio just didn't work for me. However, the oysters were some of the best I have ever had..."

  • "As we were leaving a group of six was coming in. They said this was their first visit. We exclaimed this would not be their last!!"

  • "I took a friend to lunch, celebrating her birthday. Service was attentive but low key, allowing us to linger over coffee without pressure. Food, as usual, was wonderful. The dessert treat was decadent. "

  • "We came from Ohio to visit Waypoint. We are truly glad we did. Everything was superb. Our server, Susan, was excellent. She described dishes and even made suggestions. She was extremely attentive on a fairly crowded evening. She even took us on a tour when our dinner was over. When in Williamsburg, take the time to visit Waypoint. You will not be disappointed."

  • "This was my first time at this place, and I have to say I will go there again. The service was very good, and it didn't seemed rushed and professional. The wine list was pretty good for the size of the restaurant. I will say the highlight of the evening was the calamari which was some of the best I've ever had, and I live at the oceanfront in Virginia Beach where there are numerous places that serve fine calamari. The main courses (both fish) were perfectly cooked, and the presentation was outstanding. Overall I would recommend this to anyone"

  • "We weren't expecting the limited menu on the 15th (Saturday after Valentine's) which was a bit of a problem given the various food needs of my group. With that said, the small plate entrees (3 to choose from) and hearty appetizers made for great meals for each of us. The 'extra' dining room in the front (we had a reservation so not a walk in) wasn't as nice as the others but the server was good and made us feel at home. The scallop dish (a Williamsburg boutique shop keeper raved so I tried) were indeed wonderful! The wine was good -- not overly expensive. The clientele were dressed -- not a jeans type of place so for special occasions. I would have liked to have choices from their main menu since I had booked it on that presumption."

  • "My wife and I went for a special night out for Valentine's Day and we weren't disappointed. For starters, my wife really enjoyed the selection of meats and cheeses on the Artesian Charcuterie plate and I loved the roasted tomato crab and jalapeno bisque. I like spicy foods and this fit the bill. My wife found the beef tenderloin perfectly cooked and extremely tender. I found the rockfish to be delicious and enjoyed the baked risotto that came with it. We split the special Valentine's chocolate raspberry cream filled torte and cleaned the plate. The seating was a little tight with couples seated fairly close on either side but in general the atmosphere was very comfortable and the service very good."

  • "Was here for Valentine's Day. Has a good dinner. We both had schnitzel, my wife thought it had too much salt, I thought it was fine. Good value overall for the prices, not inexpensive but not outlandish. Special treat of free chocolates and a rose for my wife for Valentine's Day. We will be back."

  • "Set in a strip mall adjacent to Kingsmill & Bush Gardens, Waypoint is a pleasant surprise for those looking for a good restaurant. The chef excels at seafood, & red meats. The Oysters cannot be beat, & specials showcase local ingredients. On our latest visit the rockfish was pristinely fresh & the accompaniments, especially the rice cake were innovative & innovative. Throughout the last two years service has evolved becoming quite efficient & professional. Wines show selection care & are fairly priced. Waypoint is now the quality restaurant for the Kingsmill side of Williamsburg. As a local I highly recommend it for tourists, conventioneers, & locals wishing a quality dining experience."

  • "Usually love the food here, but it can be a little inconsistent though. It doesn't happen often - just becomes a problem when bringing visitors."

  • "Situated in a strip mall, we first tried this restaurant for lunch while shopping nearby. We were very surprised and impressed with the menu and the ambiance and the level of service. So we planned to bring our adult children for a nice dinner to share our find. Our kids who just moved to Williamsburg from a large metropolitan area were as impressed with the restaurant as we were. We asked for a quiet spot when we made our reservations. We were seated next to the in-wall fireplace. We had a wonderful evening and an amazing meal that lasted over two hours."

  • "This is a great restaurant in the Kingsmill area of Williamsburg. It features imaginative cuisine in an in likely strip mall setting. The chef excels at seafood, but our Xmas Eve dinner of venison was totally delicious. The venison was moist & flavorful w/ a surround of VA Edwards ham. The sides were flavorful & complemented the venison quite well. We had a lovely evening on a very busy Xmas Eve. Congratulations to the restaurant on producing a fine evening of quality food."
