4 of 5 stars (good, fine/upscale dining).

(see explanation of ratings below)

Most dinner entrees are priced at more than $20, so this qualifies as fine/upscale.

Wonderful place for breakfast. Great baked goods.

Breakfast: $10-20 per person, gratuity not included.

Young breakfast wait staff is sometimes a little overwhelmed.

Would love to try dinner there sometime as their menu and daily specials look great.

About my ratings:

Only high-priced dining establishments can garner five stars. Until menuism realizes that a fast food joint cannot possibly be ranked equally with a $100 per person place, I need to draw the line somewhere. If we were only talking about the quality and presentation of the food, it would be a different story. But, as we know, menuism’s rankings take into account the entire dining experience.

Therefore, I divide restaurants into three categories (and I wish menuism would do the same):

1) fast food and “fast-casual”, low-priced (no table service).

2) casual, mid-priced dining (table service, average entrée price: $10-$20).

3) fine, high-priced dining (linen napkins, no plastic cups, no TV’s in dining room, average entrée priced at more than $20, can vary depending on the city).

High-priced dining can earn a max of five stars. Mid-priced dining can earn a max of four stars. Fast food can earn a max of three stars.

No Substitutes

Asked for different soup to go with grilled cheese and was told no substitutions and that it would be $1.00 more per order. Ok I said – makes sense but it doesn’t – not going to argue with management. Then bill came and it was $2.00 more per order and the waitress was argumentative. What is going on – this is my last time there because it’s always a hassle – I can spend $40 and be less hassled anywhere in Williamsburg – I’m a local and love our restaurants down here.

Great food, casual atmosphere, not romantic...

We had our Valentine's Day dinner at the Blue Talon, and while the food was excellent, it was a little frustrating to pay 30.00 for an entree and sit next to a table of tourists in jeans and misbehaving kids. The atmosphere is a little…

AdamS, the Owner, says:

A casual, neighborhood bistro featuring Chef David Everett’s “serious comfort food.” Menu highlights bistro classics like mussels, charcuterie, braised dishes and cheeses while also offering more modern American comfort dishes like awesome Mac n’ Cheese, Meatloaf and Grilled Swordfish.

Outstanding wine list featuring unknown “discovery” value wines, and all wines are 50% off on Tuesday nights! Located in Colonial Williamsburg’s Merchant Square and across the street from The College of William & Mary, Blue Talon is a great “local” spot for a quick bite or a more serious “wine & dine” event.
