    We had a fantastic meal and Experience at William and Henry last night. We went to W&H for the first time to celebrate my wifes Bday and were not disapointed! From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed. Even the valet was very nice and made a positive impression. The atmoshere in the hotel was great with old world charm in a revialized setting. The service for every bit of our visit was top notch. Smiles all around and very pleasant conversation and knowledge of the building and the resturant. The food was FANTASTIC!! We had a wonderful stuffed mushroom with goat cheese appitizer and a very tasty salid which is known for the home made dressing and croutons. My wife and I both had steaks which wete cooked to perfection with wonderful sides. We ended up bringing food home as the servings were very hearty! Then of course there is always room for desert!! I had the Creme' Brulee and my wife had the special strawberry cheescake ice cream sandwich. Both were delicious! I cannot say enough about the really great evening we had at W&H and highly recommend you visit, if you have never gone before.

    The noise level was exceptionally loud, especially regarding kitchen activities. Our primary server was forgetful and not very attentive; however, the other supporting staff was very pleasant and solid in their performance. The proteins were well well prepared, but the accompaniments (sides) were not well portioned for the meal. In short, We went there for our 25th wedding anniversary and our experience was anything but special - we wished we had gone somewhere else and will probably not return.

    Food - 5 stars. Steak/ Brussel sprouts were amazing Drinks - 3 stars. Nothing special here Location- 4 stars. In the lower level of a hotel. It’s unmarked and was hard to find. Only on-street parking. The environment is cozy and well decorated. Service- 4 stars. Friendly but standard Value- 3.5 stars a bit overpriced for the area and experience Overall would recommend and would go back

    We arrived 10 minutes before our reservation and was seated immediately. Service was outstanding. My wife and I both got the chef special (filet mignon steak with a lobster tail). Meat was cooked perfectly. Our service was outstanding. This is my 2nd time here and the level of food and service matched both times. Highly recommend.

    The filet mignon was absolutely amazing. Their ranch on the salad was also amazing. Mashed potatoes and asparagus I'd give a 7. Creme Brule I'd give an 8.5. Bread was good. The food was good yes, and steak was amazing yes, but for the price, I don't think it's justified. I won't be back on my own accord based on the value for what I'm getting. I can go to Fleming Mountain Grill and get an amazing filet mignon for less money or 221 Tap and Table.

    The William and Henry steak house is an outstanding restaraunt in Lynchburg. The atmosphere is elegant, I particularly liked the plush throw pillows at our booth. The service was on-point, with an attentive waitstaff. Food was amazing. The wedge salad was literally the best I have had, perfectly chilled and with a delicious house blue. I knew it was going to ne a good meal from the salad on. Everything was presented quite nicely, with a flair for visual stunnery. Management stopped by to check on us during our meal. Dessert was above-and-beyond. I got creme brulee and it was unbelievably good. The place is nice. Very nice. The prices are commensurate with what you would expect from food and service of that caliber. I live in Lynchburg and will definitely go back, in fact I am looking forward to the menu items I will try when I do. But regardless of whether you are a resident or just passing through, if you want a nice, upscale dining experience, this is it!

    The steaks at William & Henry were beautifully seasoned and cooked. Others proclaimed the French onion some of the best they'd ever had, and the heirloom tomato & burrata appetizer and Caesar salad were also excellent. Our server seemed a bit distracted, but he got the food and wine on the table in the right order and checked on us regularly (as did other staff members). This is not a once-a-week treat (at least, not to MY wallet!), but a delight for special occasions. It was a little noisy for our ears, especially given that it was a Tuesday night.

    OMG the best rib eye steak I've ever had! Great service, shared a delicious wedge salad, rib eye and mushrooms. Plenty for 2 and we even had leftover mushrooms to bring home. Reasonable prices. Can't wait to take visiting family/friends to this very special restaurant with a big city vibe.

    We had celebrated our anniversary two weeks prior to this visit at William & Henry, it was so wonderful we came back for my husbands 62nd birthday. The staff is always so welcoming, our server Sadie is amazing, she is kind yet professional and we will be back! For the 2nd time in a row my husband stated that the steaks are the best he has ever had and I couldn’t agree more.

The cocktails spot on! We had the best evening, experience and food & will definitely be back! Highly recommend & can’t wait to being friends and family to try!! Oh & the coconut cow dessert!! WOW! This places is high quality all around! Be prepared to pay for what you get but you won’t be disappointed!

    Another fantastic anniversary evening. The food is always 5+ stars. The buffalo shrimp appetizer, offered as a special, was amazing - so flavorful with just the right "zip". Prix fixe menu is almost always our go-to option and Roger and crew hit a home run every time. Our waiter. Scott, was a "new to us" server, and he was a star - friendly, cordial and very professional! Well done Scott. All in all, our favorite place in Lynchburg to celebrate special evenings or just to have a 5+ dining out! Thanks!

    Had such a lovely experience and great service from Scott. My filet was cooked perfectly and the pre fixe is such a great meal. The kitchen and expo printers are quite loud and could be heard from my table. Granted, I was there early and before other conversations muffled it but I’d imagine it draws the attention of other early guests. My favorite place in town to enjoy a special occasion. Thank you all.

    Fabulous anniversary dinner with my love! The staff was very welcoming and on top of everything. Our salad to start with were big enough for two and the warm bread the accompanied was wonderful. Steak was next which was a filet for myself and my husband had the Ribeye and he believes it’s the best steak he has ever had. Great location!
