We had some great and some not so great dining experiences in Williamsburg. The two best were La Yucca and The Fat Canary. WOW........great food and service at both places. A nice attitude by the servers and the owner's wife at La Yucca is a dear.
Next two great experiences were at The Trellis and at The Regency Room at Williamsburg Inn. I hestitated to go to the Trellis as our last two experiences there were not good because of the snooty service. This time we had a gal who was recent graduate of William and Mary and she was sweet and most efficient. The food was excellent. Easter dinner at the Regency Room was pricy but excellent.........my daughter in law loved the fact that you could go up to a table and be served as many elegant desserts as many times as you wanted!
We also enjoyed Pierces Pitt for the barbeque and an Indian restaurant called Nawbab (or something like that). This would have ranked up with one of the best meals except that I had the smelliest salmon ever served. I should have know better than to order seafood in an Indian restaurant. The rest of the food, and the service, was terrific.
We had a good Italian meal at Guiseppe's with good service but Sal's by Victor was just dreadful in our opinion. From underbaked pizza, soggy Italian bread to over-cooked sauces and greasy veal this had to be the worst restaurant of our 10 nights in Williamsburg.
We came in early and, in a nearly empty restaurant at the time, the hostess seated us way in back by the busy take-out station........we did have our table changed when we complained. The service was the type that you get in a busy restaurant where all the servers think about is getting their orders out, and not about the patrons at all.
