We attempted to get a reservation for our 38th wedding anniversary back in December 2018, but could not. Happy to report that dining at William & Henry's last Friday was certainly worth the wait!!! ...AND a wonderful ending to our "date night"! Thanks!

Definitely makeep reservations on a weekend. Not quiet enough for a serious conversation at your table but no problem talking or hearing one another. I ordered my steam medium and it was exactly that -- not over or under done. Any sides with your main meal are extra but usually enough for 2 people. I would definitely return.

We had an amazing dinner at William & Henry last weekend! The ambiance was beautiful, the service perfect. The wine was delicious. And the food - everyone loved their choice - from the appetizers (crab cakes, cheese board, arugula salad to the entrees - steak, chicken, salmon). We would definitely go back. It was a special evening with friends, made more special by the atmosphere, service and food.

Absolutely spectacular. They've been open since October 2018 and have been making a pointed effort to improve on a weekly basis. They started out better than most and in my opinion they now far surpass most every other easily within a 100 mile radius. Very friendly and attentive service, impeccably clean surrounds and delicious, well thought out offerings. Don't believe negative reviews here. They would be from someone who is never happy. A must visit, diamond in the rough.

High expections initially encouraged by super wait staff. Food for value exceptionally low. This is Lynchburg; if you’re going to charge big city prices, deliver a big city experience and food to match.

As it was with the last time we visited, William & Henry was absolutely flawless with every aspect of service, menu concepts, and preparation. This restaurant stands alone as the finest in Lynchburg. A real treat of a dining experience everyone in the city (and visitors, for that matter) should have the chance to enjoy at least once in their lives. If I had a single complaint, it'd be that the beer list needs to be more expansive, but that's not really their point of focus.

Everything at William & Henry was above and beyond what was expected. The service was great and the food was phenomenal. The chef even came to the table to present the steak before it was sliced for us. The sides dishes, though may seem pricey, are well worth it for the portion size you receive. We also split the "coconut cow," for dessert expecting it to be average sized. But, it came out in a huge slice which was more than my girlfriend and I could even finish! It was one of the best desserts I've ever had by far. We informed the waitress that William & Henry should change the name of it from the "coconut cow," to the "HOLY cow," because it was so incredible. We will definitely be dining here again!

We had a very nice meal for a special occasion. I will say we arrived 15 minute early and was asked to take a seat until they could seat us. Didn't mind and we had a glass of wine. I was a little surprised when we taken to our table to see at least six vacant tables. I did speak to the manager and she indicated that they were short staffed but nobody mentioned that to us. She was very nice and apologized and took care of it.

We had a great meal. Our wait staff was very nice and helpful. We shared the crab cake appetizer to start and it was delicious. My wife had the flounder with crab. I had seen the lamb chops at other tables several previous times and decided to try them. The were delicious and plentiful.
I do have a suggestion for the wine by the glass. They might consider offering a second chardonnay. I am sure it is very good but $21 for a wine by the glass is a little steep.
All in all we look forward to our next evening at the William and Henry.

Loved the decor. My husband was very excited since he heard they opened to try their best aged steak. But thought it tasted like ordinary steak he has had most anywhere. The sides you paid extra for were so so. I had salad with walnuts .The dressing or the cheese was a little overpowering. The couple we were with enjoyed rack of lamb and chicken. I had salmon and sadly didn't find it anything special. The cheesecake was good had a nice flavor but the crust was a little over cooked , very close to saying almost burned. Big communication problem with waitresses each one kept coming over asking the same things then repeatedly asking to hand them my glass,my knife,my plate.

Amazing food, hard to get a reservation for more than 4 unless you are more than a week ahead. Service was great up until the dining experience. Bartenders were wonderful. May have been new server but we waited a good 15 minutes for order to be taken and then again for plates to be cleared . Try it you may have a better experience.

This is a wonderful restaurant. It was a very busy Saturday evening and I don’t know of any restaurant that doesn’t have service issues sometimes on very busy nights. We waited a long time to place our order and had to ask the manager for our check. The manager was very apologetic and tried to make it up to us. Our wait staff seemed to just be in a very big hurry, almost not getting our entire order or giving us choices and we gave up ordering dessert.
That being said, I would definitely want to try again. I’ve been to many NYC restaurants and this is one of the lynchburg gems that rivals them for food and ambiance. I do recommend trying it.

This was my second visit to W&H. The first visit was very enjoyable. This visit however the service was okay not great. Our sides were not hot and my steak was very undercooked. It ruins a dinner when you can’t eat with the rest of your table. The decor is very nice, but I’m not sure the overall experience rates $30 plus entrees prices. I hope they find a way to be consistent with their food and service.

The food and service was very good. Very nice place. Hostess seemed confused about number of people in our party. It is very pricey so not much of a value here but nice for special occasions. We were with another couple and our food was boxed incorrectly but done by 2 different people so no biggie. Definitely recommend but know that it is $$
