flash-fried, saltine-crusted & buttery grilled shrimp
Well prepared food with outstanding presentation. Friendly staff and excellent value.
Enjoyed our meal and Christian was great. We will return.
She-crab soup a must. Great crab cake. Huge Caesar salad. Added salmon cooked perfectly
The seafood in parchment was delicious, as were our Kir Royales. We had a delightful lunch, and I loved that we were able to make a daytime reservation. We will be back.
The service and the food outstanding! Our dinner was not only well presented but also very well done- this chef knows what he is doing!!!
Good food. Staff was very accommodating at getting us seated quickly. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgable.
Excellent all around!!
From start to finish, an excellent dining experience. Our server, Christian, was friendly and very knowledgeable about the entire menu, answering all questions regarding anything on the menu. I had the pecan crusted salmon with oysters, the best salmon I think I have ever had. My wife had the osso bucco and was also very pleased. We will definitely be dining there again and will hopefully have Christian again as our server.
Very nice place. The food was wonderful. Spacious dining area.
I really enjoyed the cauliflower crust flatbread.
Berret's Restaurant is our "go-to" each trip we make to Williamsburg. The food is always great as well as the service. Even being short staffed the night we went, our server did an outstanding job.
Very good seafood. Our server was Excellent! Enjoyed our visit.
food was delicious! Great service; Ashton was our server, and she was helpful, wonderful.
Our server was amazing and very helpful. Food was excellent and we will certainly return.
we were seated when arrived 15minutes before reservation. Hostess was a delight, seated promptly. Waiter was engaging, knowledgeable of all entrees. He was a joy to have as a waiter. Drinks were great, She Crab soup was outstanding as well as both meals(Red White and Blue and the fish cooked in parchment.. The Creme Brulee and Chocolate Lava Cake topped off the evening.
Great fresh food. Good place to unwind after visiting the Colonial Williamsburg historic district.
Well beyond my expectations. Very courteous, upscale service from our server, Christian. Extremely fast kitchen. Food was so good we were snaking food off each other’s plates.
It was an anniversary dinner for us, and we couldn’t have been happier. So good we are going back for lunch.
We always have a wonderful experience every time we visit and Chrystal is the best!
The absolute best seafood we've ever had! Fresh oysters and crab cakes so moist and flavorful, the remoulade wasn't needed!
Fantastic staff, and the mini spumanti for my birthday just put it over the top. Two thumbs way up!
Always good food and service. Nice wine list. Quiet atmosphere.
Excellant food, excellant service and a very reasonable cost. Our server, Lance, was polite, knowledgeable and attentive. Hard qualities to find today.
My husband and I went here for our anniversary for the first time. Amazing food and service! Will be back later this month.
our waiter was great!
very pro active and very attentive
we loved the mussels, oysters and big sandwich
You are now our favorite in town restaurant!!
Overall good but nothing special.
Stopped here for dinner while in Willlamsburg because we heard wonderful things. For appetizers, we ordered soup and oysters. The soup lacked flavor to say the least, and the oysters had shell pieces littered throughout. We were told the soup would be removed from our bill. When we received entrees, my boyfriend’s swordfish steak was quite dry, even with the sauce it was topped with. In addition, my filet mignon and side vegetables was severely undercooked. I could not eat it, and did not opt to send it back as I already spoke with our waitress regarding the soups in the first course. I simply asked for a box and took the entire plate home to recook myself. She did not ask if the steak was the proper temp, and she did not seem concerned that I boxed an entire entree shortly after being served. And when we received the bill, the soup was still included in the check. We had planned our trip for a few months and were looking forward to our dinner reservation at Berret’s. Next time we visit Williamsburg, I’m not so sure we will return.
Always reliable food and friendly wait staff. The crab dip is amazing.
Great service. Food pretty good but ambiance inside was just ok.
The food is not fancy but the service is excellent and we love to sit by a window on a rainy day or a cold windy one and just let the world go by. And oysters for a dollar apiece are hard to beat
Hey there he red white and blue plate. You will not be disappointed
Friends I had not seen in a long time.
The baked brie and shrimp was outstanding! Also the garlic crusted Mahi Mahi.
I like to remember food when I travel. I will forget this place tomorrow. The food was very mediocre and the service was SO unprofessional.
Great food with excellent service! This will be a go-to when we travel to Williamsburg.
Our waitress was fabulous but my husband found his pork chop tough. My blue point special was great
Friends recommended this restaurant! Everything was perfect! It was casual but the food and service were top notch!
This is one of my favorite local spots to share with friends. The staff is attentive and you never feel rushed. The seafood is fresh, and they have a great brunch and happy hour specials.
Today I had one of my lunch favorites with a side of vegetables. The portion of vegetables was very small — more like a garnish. I like my vegetables to still have a crunch, but the string beans were undercooked, very tough and stringy.
We always have a lovely evening at Berret’s! Great food and service!!!
Outstanding meal. Our server, Christian, was funny and professional. Food was delicious. Highly recommend Berret’s!
The food and service were excellent. We had appetizers, soup, entrees and dessert. The carrot cake “slice” was big enough for three people!
