Pros
"over cooked steak, poor house cabernet, vegetables were either warm or cold Bad dining experience."
"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
"e.g. slow service, under-cooked food, loud, etc...Cook should be replaced, quality of steaks should be improved."
"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
"Eat at McDonalds first"
"I don't understand how restaurant is still in business. I will not return!"

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.

Good Dinner for Grand Illumination Weekend

We have enjoyed dinner at the Jefferson House during the weekend of Grand Illumination for several years now. The food is good and the staff very responsive and seeking to meet our needs. We will be back this Sat. Dec. 4th.

only Ok

We ate at the Jefferson for dinner on a busy night, granted, but the service was pretty slow. Not only that, the tables are all pushed so close together you feel like you're at a boarding house. We had a coupon for a free shrimp cocktail…
