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.
The service was excellent. The food was great. We will return to this establishment.
Pleasant...quiet and quaint. We were the only guests in the restaurant other than 4 people at the bar. Based on location, it appears to cater to the business crowd. The food was delicious and accommodating.
This has been my go to for business luncheons and as usual the food was excellent.
We've been here several times and never fails to satisfy us.
A pleasant experience - I had never been here before after living in Richmond for over 10 years now. I will definitely go again. Everything was great from the ambience, to the service, to the food!
The food quality was not at all what I would expect for the price charged. Items on the buffet were ordinary in quality, lukewarm and not very fresh or flavorful. The deviled eggs were a bit crusty, as if they were a day old and had been sitting out. The experience was not at all memorable. With a glass of wine and a tip, I paid over $64.00. On Christmas Eve, I had a much, much better experience at The Boathouse at Sunday Park, and with wine and tip, spent under $40.00 there. I will not ever be back to the Cobblestone.
This was the worst holiday buffet my family and I have ever experienced. The food was pretty horrible and the price was outrageous! My husband daughter and I were ill from the food we ate, horrible upset stomach. I was horrified when we received the bill and no one at the hostess desk to address the issues. Deviled eggs were rubber, mashed potatoes were grey and unappealing, tasted like powdered potatoes, the prime rib was ok, but the ham and Turkey made others sick. The beer that was ordered was skunky.
We had reserved a Christmas Eve table for three (my husband and I, along with our 12 year old daughter) long in advance, and were delighted to be promptly seated at a cozy window table with a nice view of Shockoe Slip's historic cobblestone streets. We watched diners and hotel guests arriving as we perused a rather limited three course, fixed price holiday menu. Service was polite, timely and knowledgeable. My husband had salmon, I had lamb and our daughter had beef tenderloin. While I wouldn't classify this as a restaurant for foodies, the food was well executed and each of us enjoyed our meal. The atmosphere was comfortable, clubby and quiet, with lots of wood and carpeting. We had a lovely evening and would return again.
I took my daughter and her friend to Cobblestone Café prior to seeing The Nutcracker. The food was excellent for both me (foodie) and the kids. The chicken and waffles was a great option for the kids. My meal was the Chef's Specialty Tomato Pie and Bisque. I highly recommend this restaurant. Will go again.
Food was marginal. Appetizer was meager. Had to ask for bread.No specials available on a Friday night. just overall disappointing
Although the menu was limited our choices were very good. The chef came out to check on us, which was a refreshing touch. Atmosphere was elegant and the decor was beautiful. Our server, Will, was outstanding.
My husband and I were staying at the Berkeley, and on this snowy evening, we decided to have dinner in-house at the Cobblestone. It was pretty much what we expected from the reviews. It’s basically an American bistro. The menu is not expansive, but innovative, and the flavors were very nice.
We were a bit disappointed at the choice of bourbons for our old fashioneds, but the drinks were made well with Eagle Rare.
We had the fried green tomatoes as an appetizer which were very good, but could’ve used some creme fresh to balance the acidity.
I had the tea teriyaki salmon, and it was quite nice, although I doubt it was wild-caught. My husband enjoyed the dirty bird with no complaints. For dessert we shared the pumpkin praline cheesecake, and it was very rich and a nice finish to our meal.
The restaurant has a pub/bistro ambiance, and was perfect for a quiet date night.
We loved our dinner and had great service! Can't believe it took us so long to try it out.
45 minutes from home Sat down until lunch was actually served. Unacceptable for lunch time crowd. Several orders within the group were wrong but we couldn't wait for corrections. Fries were served cold.
Dont go if u r in a hurry. Only 2 employees to cover door, bar and tables.
Food was adequate. The Berkeley Crab Bisque, a favorite in the past, was too thick, lacking in Sherry & room temperature.
The Cherry Pepsi Short Ribs had a nice flavor but was not cooked long enough to be fall off the bone tender.
We did not order dessert.
Staff was prompt & friendly.
Lighting was awful, all overhead lighting. Try some table lighting or candles.
We enjoyed our dinner. The food and service were excellent. Since we dined on a Sunday, the dining area was reasonably quiet.
The date night special was a decent value: shared appetizer, 2 entrees, shared dessert, and a bottle of wine for $75. The salmon and bread pudding were delicious. Our server, Will, was pleasant and down to earth. He made us feel welcome. Good atmosphere with jazz on the overhead sound system. The woodwork in the restaurant was clean and cobweb free. No complaints.
I had wanted to take my aunt out for a birthday lunch. I wanted to take her somewhere very nice where neither of us of been before. Well that was a mistake. Several years ago I had often heard good things about the Berkeley; I just never had been. Perhaps a lot had changed in that time.
The decor was boring and sterile, not the least bit elegant or interesting. The waiter suggested the crabcakes so we ordered the crabcake sandwich. It was mediocre. We both had coffee. I might as well have been at Cracker Barrel. Coffee was weak. We did have Keylime pie and that was the highlight.
Lastly, toward the end of our meal it became uncomfortably warm and humid in the restaurant. We asked the waiter if something happened to the air-conditioning. After checking he realized the valet had left the front door propped open which is very near the dining area. That just added to our less than impressive dining experience.
The manager did stop over and was very gracious and offered dessert on the house, which is when we shared the delicious Keylime pie.
