The temperature in the restaurant was rather chilly. Many customers were wearing their coats
while dining. We were celebrating a birthday and even though the waiter was aware and acknowledged the same, we felt rushed. The food was very good but we were not impressed with the carrot cake.

Calamari and oysters were great. Entrees were disappointing. Had tuna with fried crabcake. Sauce was pasty, thick and no flavor. Too many items fried. Catfish and scallops in parchment not overly flavorful.
Our server was pleasant. Room was cool. They were getting ready to close for a week to do a facelift.

Food is good. Unfortunately it appears the quality has dropped over the years. I may give it another try the next time I'm in Williamsburg. Many excellent restaurants have opened in Williamsburg over the past couple of years at the same price point.

We celebrated New Year's Eve in 2017. Two of us enjoyed the Blue Plate special, which included a bowl of she-crab soup. The meal was excellent and a great value. The other members of the party enjoyed their Filets and seafood medley. Everyone had a great time. And our waitress was knowledgeable and fun. This was our 2nd New Year in a row at Berrets, and we will be shooting for 3. Make reservations well in advance for special occasions.

On a busy New Year's Eve, we were seated on time, and there was no delay in any of our service. We both had seafood dishes and were delighted. The macadamia nut mahi mahi was superb. It was a perfectly cooked and generous piece of very fresh fish. My wife had the Red White and Blue (salmon, scallops and crab cake) and was also very pleased. The star at this restaurant is the food, and it's reasonably priced. Plus, the location, just off Mechants Square provides for a nice stroll after dinner.

We first dined at Berret's about 25-years ago and have been back twice since then. It's a 2.5-hour drive from our home in the VA. foothills but their food and quality service makes it our go to spot for special occasions. Just celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary there last week. No need to say more except their fried shrimp is amazing. Great seafood experience. Reservations suggested.
