I suppose this restaurant is serving it's main purpose, to be a convenient eatery for guest. I have only eaten breakfast here and I must say it is hit or miss with the food items. The biscuits are great! The ingredients are, for the most part, fresh. The flavor can be lacking though and the price is not so great... More

It is amazing. This used to be a flea bag hotel that was used as student dorms for a local college. It is now one of the most expensive places to stay in Richmond. The food is good but parking can be tricky at best.

Stayed in at the Berkeley for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We would highly recommend the happy hour sampler plate. We also had a lovely dinner on our last night. I highly recommend the short ribs, no fat and fork tender. Both our entrees came with some of the best collard greens I've ever had. We also had... More
