I booked a 2 pm late lunch early dinner reservation for Valentine’s Day. My wife I’d a pescatarian and there were plenty of items to choose from the menu. Formal dining with a appropriate amount of informal conversation with the staff. Our service was attentive from the moment we entered. Several appetizers, entrees and deserts were available even at 2pm. The drinks are expensive but do not lack in alcohol. They are large and pack plenty of punch. I will return to try the dinner there. Wonderful experience

Food and atmosphere was amazing. This was my wife and I first date/valentines since our new born baby. Howard, the manager made our evening an unforgettable experience. My wife and I love wine, so he brought four bottles of wine for a tasting. He has a contagious personality and really loves what he does.

Highly recommend this restaurant. We will be returning next month with family from out of town.

Anniversary dinner at Waypoint with friends was excellent in every way! Halibut special was very good and the calamari and fried oysters were great starters! Definitely the best restaurant in Williamsburg!!

It has been a while since being at Waypoint and we had a most enjoyable meal and evening. The service and entrees were excellent. I was impressed by the social distancing and care exhibited by the Waypoint management and staff. And most of all both of our dinners were exceptional. Will return shortly.

Waypoint is one of the best restaurants in the Williamsburg area and in all of Hampton Roads. The crab cake and shrimp, scallops and grits were excellent. Waypoint is fine dining so it is not inexpensive, but it is well worth it.

My Wife and I ate there during WARA Restaurant Week, with a special priced menu, if you so desired, as well as them having their normal menu. Choice of Rib Eye, Chicken Schnitzel or Flounder Bercy as a main course, along with soup or salad and dessert for only $35.00, plus tax. I highly recommend this fine dining establishment, to anybody who is searching for one of Williamsburg's best restaurants!

Appetizers included the roasted beet and pear salad. It was delicious, but the initial plate came with a frozen goat cheese round. The waiter was apologetic and returned within one minute with a freshly prepared warm goat cheese round. My husband had the crab, tomato, and jalapeño soup which was excellent. Main course for me was the stone ground cheese grits with shellfish---I would get this every night! Absolutely delicious. My husband had the fish and chips and was not impressed with the coating. The fish was tender and tasty, but overwhelmed with the amount of breading.
We would return to Waypoint without hesitation, but my husband would choose a different entree.
