Last Christmas Eve we had a lovely holiday dinner here. Unfortunately this year did not live up to expectations. The food was not as good and neither was the service. While we were not anticipating high end gourmet fare, this is not an inexpensive dining choice and we were disappointed with the meager offerings. Next year's Christmas Eve will be spent elsewhere.

The restaurant was lovely. The service was slow and they were not busy. They did not have spinach or the flatbread. Few vegetarian options. The food was good and visually appealing.
Not what I expected, a little disappointed.

We were seated very quickly and our request to move our reservations back 15 minutes because of bad traffic was quickly confirmed.

The restaurant is beautiful, with large beams and an open feel. The elevated northern room, where we were seated, was roomy and comfortable.

The food was below average. The bisque was not a bisque, but more of a chunky chowder, but was bland and tasted more of thickener like arrowroot than crab.

The beef rib was also bland and packing the moisture one would expect with a short rib. It was tough and went largely uneaten.

The lobster potatoes were good. They were whipped well and had chunks of lobster in them. I would order those again.

The crab sandwiches were very good. They were fried well, and while the crab was mild, there was a proper proportion of crab to bread and the texture was spot-on.

The service was average, even though we were the only table in the room.

When we arrived there were only two other families having breakfast. It took over 45 minutes for them to serve us breakfast brunch for four people. When the food arrived it was bland and cold and we had to send back the Bloody Mary. Very disappointing when trying to impress out of town guest.

What was some years ago an elegant dining room with excellent food has been down graded to an informal bar and grill. The lunch menu was adequate but the food itself was ordinary.

This was a somewhat disappointing experience. The score for service is not a reflection of our server, but rather that there did not seem to be adequate staff to keep pace. It took nearly an hour to be served breakfast. The food presentation was underwhelming, including very small portions for the price. The restaurant itself is very nice, but the very slow service and quality of the food are not well aligned.

Had the shrimp and grits. Had 3 nice pieces of shrimp. But it barely had any grits, like really a very small spoonful, and there was a very watery broth instead of creamy grits. But I will say the flavor was great.

Wow - we hadn't been to the Berkeley to eat in years and decided to give Cobblestone a try. It was terrific. First and foremost, perhaps because we were relatively early (7pm reservations) we were literally the only people in the place for the first 45 minutes. That added to the ambiance as the space is intimate and comfortable.

Service was terrific. While none of us got the server's name, she was very knowledgeable about the menu items, how things were prepared, and all of her recommendations were spot on. I had the short ribs with bourbon carrots and mashed potato's which was fantastic. My wife had the pork chop with drunken peaches - if you like bourbon this is the dish for you.

None of use generally get dessert but the bourbon caramel bread pudding was to die for! Don't miss it. We will absolutely be back.

We ordered the steak, the most expensive item on the menu, and it had loads of gristle. The bisque had a skin on it. We noted that it was our anniversary when we made the reservation and no mention of the occasion was made. (We actually had our reception there 20 years ago.) The host was not at the desk and we had to find someone to seat us.

Another out of town couple and we stayed at The Berkeley and had our arrival night dinner in the Cobblestone Bar & Grill after drinks in the bar. Our server in the bar, Beth Ann, gave us a very personable welcome and excellent service. We wound up staying on long enough to be an hour late for our dinner reservation in the adjoining restaurant, but Beth Ann and our server in the restaurant were aware of our delay. Will, our server in the restaurant, did a very nice job for us and we found this was a good setting for relaxing after our respective travels. We also had very pleasant breakfasts in the Cobblestone Bar & Grill each of our four mornings during our stay at The Berkeley. Our breakfast server for three of the mornings, Jo, was especially personable and attentive.

Very nice ambiance and atmosphere. It's not crowded and they were very accommodating. I wanted something that was not on the menu and our waiter went above and beyond to ask the chef if this could be done. Needless to say they could make the meal that I desired and everything was great! After our meal my friend was trwated to a complimentary dessert for his birthday.

Ok I am going to mark up the slow meal service to it being Valentine's Day. It took just over 30 minutes for the entree's to come out after our soup and salad. There really shouldn’t have been any surprises on the number of people as reservations for the prix fixe meal. The service was good but very busy. The entrees certainly weren’t the fault of the server. When they did finally arrive my wife had the Filet which was an ample serving and flavorful though it did have a little fat on it but still good. I had the scallops which were not only a disappointing 3 pieces, one was the size of a nickel and the other two not much but slightly bigger. If this was what the entre like was all night I would have preferred the waiter have told me it was a small portion and maybe I’d like to choose one of the other two selections – the beef or lamb. I think they were running short based on the long wait from the kitchen. It’s a shame to have a 4 course meal – soup, salad, entrée and dessert and go home hungry. I don’t think I’ll go back. I was disappointed because they generally had good to very good ratings and this was our first time eating here.

Had a reservation for Valentine’s Day date night. Was seated at the bar while we waited for the table. Received no service. Was told 4 times our table would be up shortly. Staff was running around and disorganized. Lighting was way too bright. Was loud like a saloon, not a beautiful intimate dinner spot like it used to be. Left after 50 minutes completely disgusted. Not the same charming, intimate place it used to be. Would avoid at all costs.

From the time we set down the service was horrible. Took 15-20 mins to put a drink order. It took over 1.5 hrs to get our entree. My lamb was raw and the desert grainy. Our waiter only had 4 2 top tables. He would vanish for 30+ minutes at a time. Tables who arrived after us got there food before we did.( all 2 tops as well) we will never eat here again. Several other tables had the same bad experience.
