Pros
"We were greeted warmly and our server was efficient and friendly."
"Fast service, nice waiters...absolutely horrible food that is most certainly too much money..."
"None. Horrible food. Way overpriced. Have been to many restaurants in Williamsburg. Will not go back"
Cons
"Rib eye steak was overcooked and had an unpleasant taste. Mashed potatoes weren't home made as stated and veal parmigiana sauce wasn't home made but from a jar. Rolls weren't home made and salads were bland and drenched in dressing."
Comments
"I don't understand how restaurant is still in business. I will not return!"

The Jefferson Restaurant 1.0
 

Not impressed

My family and I recently dined at the Jefferson and we were not impressed by the service or the food. The first waitress was friendly enough. She came over to take our drink orders, but while she was doing so, another waiter came up and interupted her while she was speaking to us and said he’d be taking over from there. I don’t know what the problem was, no one explained what had taken place, although we overheard an altercation between the two servers moments later and our original waitress walked out in tears. Besides the drama, the food was not what we expected either, for the exorbitant price we paid. The chicken was tough, the crab cackes were mostly filler, and the place just seemed generally dirty. Definitely not fine dining. We will not be back.
