    The restaurant is located in the historic Williamsburg Inn, so the decor is lovely. Dining areas are small, multiple, and carpeted so noise level from too-loud diners was bearable. Menu was excellent and the quality of the food superb. Wait staff were attentive and cordial. Overall, a relaxing and enjoyable experience.

    Truly outstanding experience. We dined about 9:30 after a concert in Williamsburg. Our dining room was very large but with no other guests, probably due to the late hour. We enjoyed scallops and roast chicken primarily, and I could have awarded all stars for the meal except that both dishes had been somewhat over salted. Otherwise, all was perfect, including presentation, the luxurious ambience of the room, and our exceptionally gracious server. Next time, I will simply request that our dishes should not be salted. Looking forward to returning to the Terrace next year after another Bruton Parish Church Candlelight Concert.

    Our meals were very good and the service was excellent, but the seating was disappointing. Our table was in a nearly empty and very cold dining room and nearest to the entrance to the kitchen. I was looking forward to an elegant dining experience, but the atmosphere left much to be desired.

    Drinks and appetizers at the adjacent Restoration Bar. Delightful service from Marie and the bartender. Sorry didn't get her name. The charcuterie plate was delicious and I enjoyed one of their signature cocktails, Linus' Boxcar. We then were seated at a lovely table in the dining room where we enjoyed a superb steak with savory mashed potatoes and wonderful roasted root vegetables. ! We had asked to share and was delivered beautifully split and plated. Our server, Linda, was delightful attentive and welcoming. We always love the ambiance, service, food and beverages at the Williamsburg Inn.

    We arrived around 6 pm and it was fairly quiet. We were seated promptly and asked about water. Make sure to stipulate tap water if you have no preference otherwise you’ll receive a rather expensive “still” water. Our waiter was very attentive through out the meal until it got busier. Then he forgot my coffee with dessert. That was disappointing. Overall, a lovely evening. The live pianist was a big plus.

    As a prior guest at the Inn, I had high expectations for the Valentine's Dinner. Sadly, I was deeply disappointed. 1. Arrival - There was much confusion and clear frustration on the part of the host staff. They were struggling with their computer system and despite a very limited and time-controlled reservation process, they did not know where to seat us and completely missed giving my wife her rose. 2. Seating - The room is beautiful! We were seated next to a window looking out into a lovely. enclosed courtyard. Unfortunately, the wait station was immediately behind us and one of the waitstaff frequently took his frustrations out on the computer screen and by banging on it repeatedly and rushing his co-workers away from the station. 3. Appetizers - We had the French Onion Soup and Tarte. The soup arrived piping hot - too hot to touch for some time. Ultimately, it was "OK" - nothing special or unique. The Tart was cut into 4 pieces, each approximately the size of a Club Cracker. Again, other than the small portion, it was unremarkable. 4. Salads - They were fresh, green, and unnoteworthy. 5. Intermezzo - The raspberry and champagne were just lovely. 6. Entree - I had the Beef Bourguignon. It was a nice pot roast. The mashed potatoes were very nice. My wife got the uncontested biggest disappointment of the meal - the Bone Marrow Gnocchi. There were 5 Gnocchi strewn across a desiccated 1/2 femur bone. My wife describes it as "half a dog bone" that was left in the sun for too long. We expected the bone marrow to arrive moist and creamy - almost sauce like. What we got was the dried, brown remains stuck to the valley of the bone slice that had to be scratched out with a knife. Oh - and did I mention, there were only 5 Gnocchi? 7. Dessert - We both had the cheesecake and it was the best part of the meal. The portion was small but very well baked and the fresh fruit was a very welcome surprise. Our server was lovely but rushed.

    We had not dined at the Inn for over a decade and were very pleased that the atmosphere, the service and the food were as good or better that we remembered. While the actual dining room has changed there has not been any compromise to assuring their guests have a very wonderful dinner experience. The room was lovely, the service was very attentive, and the food was superb. We thoroughly enjoyed the special Valentine's evening.

    Invited my sister to the Valentine to celebrate her belated birthday. We arrived early and were concerned about parking but the front desk assured us we would be fine in the parking lot as we were not overnight guests. A friendly hostess politely escorted us to sitting are to wait for 2:00 tea. Came to get us and seated us close to harpist which was delightful. Our server was attentive and the food was delicious and well presented. The added glass of champagne was a treat. Will definitely attend at a future date. Christmas would be nice.

    Food was absolutely delicious and perfectly prepared. Service was exceptional and pleasant. It is not a cheap spot to eat in but well worth the cost. The small bar next to the dining room has a nice feeling to it and we enjoyed a drink there before dinner. I would recommend it if you are planning a special night out.

    Very delicious food and wine. Elegant atmosphere. Our server was very gracious, but I think that there needs to be more efficiency in the process. We had a late arrival and stayed for 2 hours and heard one server bemoan the lateness because she had to catch a later ferry than expected. If diners are expected to leave at a certain time, we need to be told before making a reservation. Overall a wonderful experience. I will be back.

    It was our second time visiting the Terrace Room in January due to Restaurant Week. We did have the prefix menu and our main dinner choice both times was the Pork Chop. First time we ordered it 'medium rare' and unfortunately, the meat came out dry and a bit tough. The second visit we ordered again the Chop but this time, we ordered it to be prepared ‘medium’ thinking that would make a difference. Unfortunately, not. We highly recommend the Chef in The Terrace Room not to prepare Pork Chops that are thick as the meat is far too dry, under seasoned and a bit tough. We had the same Server for both visits. Very nice person from the middle east. I’m quite sure he was taught how to serve a table properly, and this of course is a restaurant inside The Williamsburg Inn but crossing over one's body to serve another I’m quite sure is not appropriate in any restaurant service. For as much as the Williamsburg Inn touts to be superior in both hotel and restaurant service, we were not impressed. Lovely surroundings but food and service in the Terrace Room can certainly be improved.
