    My food was indeed delicious, but the setting is dreary - no windows, hard Windsor chairs, wood floor with no carpeting, low ceiling. The wine list is a joke. Bottles that can be had for ten bucks in the PA State Store system are marked up to $45. The cream of mushroom soup was awesome, and my filet was delicious, but at this price the setting and wine list should be more luxurious.

    Chef definitely knows what he is doing by blending the different items and flavors found on each dish. Service was impeccable, yet this is what you would expect when paying these prices.

  • Best Shrimp Scampi I have ever had!!

    Dined on 11/21/2014
    I have never had shrimp scampi that good - usually too much garlic - but this had such a wonderful taste - instead of tasting just garlic I tasted the shrimp. Great wine list. Disappointed that I could not get just a glass or carafe of a Riesling. All in all - phenomenal place for dinner.

    I took a group of 7 of our Board members to a pre-meeting dinner at 1796 and was not disappointed. Our service was attentive and the server well educated, the food, across 5 different choices was properly prepared and very enjoyable. The wine list was diverse enough to allow adequate choice and was not wildly overpriced. It is a real pleasure to be able to stay within the resort when doing meetings and have a first class dining experience. Don't miss the Frontier Tavern for a pre or post dinner (or both) cocktail.

    The ambiance of the 1796 Room is excellent - intimate, historic, candlelit. The steaks that Chef is turning out here are undeniably delicious. Beautiful char on the outside, cooked to perfection on the inside - juicy, tender. Do not bother with a sauce (although they are good too) - just not necessary for such beautifully prepared meat. DO have the creamed spinach - it was superb. I was glad that we weren't lured into having the soup or wonderful looking salads that I saw on our neighbors' table - I would never have had room for my steak. Our server was excellent - efficient and attentive. We felt just a bit rushed, but that won't stop me from returning when next we find ourselves at the Bedford Springs Resort. The food is that good.

    My husband and I celebrated our 12th anniversary at 1796 and we received excellent food and service. We ordered the seafood appetizer tray that was filled with lobster, crab legs, jumbo shrimp and tuna. It was unbelievable. We followed up with the veal chops and various sides which were cooked to perfection. Even the drinks were awesome. We highly recommend.

    LetDownBy1796
    Dined on 11/6/2014
    This place was very pretentious. The resort itself is fantastic but this particular restaurant was a let down. For one, they have couch tables, where a two-person couch is oddly pushed up against a table and the only way to get in and out of your seat is to move the entire table, it just didn't feel right. Also, many of the tables are set up for two people, which is fine but instead of positioned across from one another, the seats are right next to one another (think one person sitting at 12 and the other person sitting at 3, instead of 12 and 6). As a result, my wife and I found ourselves about 10 feet from someone sitting at a couch table facing one another. I was really uncomfortable throughout the dinner. I would not recommend!!

    We enjoyed our two dinners in the 1796. We can't think of anything that requires improvement. The only unpleasant part of our second dining experience was a group of very loud and obnoxious people. They should have had their own dining room -- their noise level was so loud we could hardly hear each other.

    The 1796 dining experience was wonderful - again. Food is great and service attentive without being intrusive - and that is a good thing! : >)) However, there was a group of 6 or 7 people at the corner table who were loud, rowdy and intrusive. It is a good thing to celebrate, but it is sad when it is done to frequent pain for their neighbors. They no doubt spent a lot of $$$, but they left an unpleasant memory. Two couples caught up with us at breakfast the next day and shared their agreement. The night before we had a totally pleasant experience in the Crystal Room. We will return, but we will visit the Crystal, not likely the 1796. You CAN request reasonableness. It's your business! Don't lose it!

    My husband and I enjoyed the food so much that we went back twice during our stay at the Omni Bedford Springs. The food is exceptional, in particular the steaks, the wait staff is very accommodating, and overall it was a fantastic dining experience. We highly recommend that others who enjoy an exceptional meal go to this first-class restaurant.

    The food at 1976 was spectacular. The Quail was very good, along with the 20 oz bone-in ribeye. Everything about our dinner was great, except maybe the service. While the service started out great, halfway through the meal the promptness of the server severely dropped off. We fought through empty water and wine glasses, but overall I would recommend the restaurant for the food experience. Eerything was well seasoned and very well put together.

    It was very hard to have a conversation with my friend without leaning forward over the table. The room was very noisy thanks to a group in the corner. Once the group was finished it was a bit easier to talk. The bench seating seemed nice for couples side by side (when they weren't all looking at their cell phones!) The peach crisp was delicious. Waitress had to keep apologizing for running behind. If we go back to eat there, the tavern looks like a better choice for us.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit. Booth/couch wearing:Both my husband and I had to user the pillows as a "booster" seat, which then made the table height ok. Room has terrible acoustics, so ask to be as far away from any groups (over 4 people). A couple actually left before ordering because they were stuck next to a group of 7. (What is it with these 40-50 y.o. Guys who seem to confuse fine dining with tailgating?) Food was superb. I had pork t bone; husband had mushroom soup (wonderful) Caesar salad (light on dressing, even for my tastes, but as true to a Caesar as you can be without raw egg) and chicken. Also a peach/raspberry crumble. Entree portions huge. Service (Lisa?) efficient, friendly not over-bearing, so perfect.

    We were very impressed with not only the great service but the excellent food as well. From the warm home made bread to the delicious prix fixe menu of soup, salad, steak and dessert, every single bite was better than the next. The steak was cooked "medium" perfectly. I was able to substitute the cream based mushroom soup to the beef broth that was not included in the set menu. The chef's mashed potatoes was phenomenal and a "must have" side dish! The space is not too small with low ceiling and can get noisy as we sat by a table with a large party, but overall it is very cozy and romantic. We will definitely make it a point to come back and revisit this wonderful place. Thank you!

    This is in an historic hotel and has a lot of character. The steaks we ordered (ribeye and tenderloin) were amazing and prepared perfectly. They had a crusty(ish) seasoning and were very tender inside. The sides are big enough to share, including the baked potatoes. I passed on the dessert but they sounded scrumptious.

    While the food and drinks were great for our dinner. The noise level was extremely high and very uncomfortable. I kept waiting for a train to come through. The staff must have a difficult time working under these conditions. When considering the price we were paying for food and beverages I would have expected more of a comfort zone. Our over all experience was not good.

    Dinner at 1796 was part of a spa package at Bedford Springs- so my expectations were low. Boy was I surprised! From my seared scallop App to my salad of baby spinach and raspberries and the finale of one of the best filets I have ever had, I was blown away. Don't miss this gem if you are in the area!

    We ate here while staying at the resort. Authentic, historic ambiance and excellent service are the restaurant's strong points. The food, however, was just average. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his bone-in ribeye, but I have had better NY strip. The chef's herb infused whipped potatoes were dry and heavy and not impressive, to say the least. Really enjoyed the signature grilled artichoke on the side and the wedge salad with a flavorful bleu cheese dressing, though. May or may not return if we are in the area again but would recommend it for a fine steakhouse in the area.

    Always love the food here. The ribeye is to die for!!!!! Others in my family really love the filet. I wish they would include a real side dish or salad with the meal instead of making you pay i.e.: 6.00 for a baked potato and 9.00 for a salad on top of the already high prices.

    Really enjoyed the food and the service. The atmosphere was nice, however, it was beyond noisy. It was so loud I had a difficult time speaking with my husband across the table (and no, I am not old!). Even our waiter acknowledged how loud it was, as he kept having to repeat himself. Not sure if this is typical for this restaurant, but it did take away from the intimacy we were looking for.

    The noise level was off the charts, neither the waitress or ourselves could hear each other to place our order. The food was not "TOP CHEF" level. I had better steak meals with a nicer presentation at Long Horn Steakhouse. The service was fantastic. I would only recommend it for a very special event that you didn't mind putting down about $75 per person for a meal, and then only if there were only a few people in the restaurant. I expected better for such a upscale restaurant. Anyone can do a salad, shrimp on ice in nice looking bowl, seriously is that the best you can do. Whipped potatoes tasted like instant.

    The food was fantastic. However, the dinner was ala carte, and the main dishes (strip steak and lamb) came before the sides. Throughout dinner, a baby was screaming intermittently but continually in the relatively small dining area. I would patronize the restaurant again, but, particularly given the upscale prices, I would hope that they develop techniques for handling problem children.
