This is the restaurant in the Holiday Inn on Bypass Road. We stopped in during out last visit to have a drink after dinner. The service was good, the price was reasonable and our drinks were delicious. It is so convenient being right there in the hotel.

The menu selection was good and ample. I recommend the mussels, which were superlative. Wesley, our friendly waiter, helped us choose the best items. He also knew the area well and was able to give us pointers on how best to enjoy our time in Colonial Williamsburg. The buffet breakfast was quite satisfactory, as well, with fresh food well prepared.... More

As a rule, I avoid empty restaurants but reviews of this place looked OK and it was late and raining so risked it. MISTAKE! for chicken parmesan read microwaved chicken, under cooked pasta and supermarket sauce. When we asked for desert, we were told they was none, but server offered to see if they was anything left over from the... More

We stayed at this hotel and decided to eat here. We arrived at 515 and there was no one to serve us until 545. The food was just ok even though we paid $22 for each dinner. They also gave us the wrong orders and blamed us. I could hear the chef yelling at the waiter as it was the... More

The decor is pleasent, upscale bistro. Very clean but lacking spoons in the silverware wraps. When requesting coffee, we one would think there would be a spoon. The waitress was pleasent. The food was out to my table in a flash. My over medium egg was perfect, a few chunks of my cantaloupe were a bit green but the pineapple... More

Bistro 515 is the restaurant in the Holiday Inn & Suites in Williamsburg and was a very welcome light at the end of the tunnel when we checked in after a long flight from Ireland followed by a few hours drive south from Dulles. When you're that tired and you crave sustenance and you want simple, straightforward, uncomplicated good food... More

If you are staying at any of the hotels in the area, you should give this restaurant a try. They have a varied array of menu items which help to make it an enjoyable dinning option. The staff is also very friendly.
