    It was our 42nd wedding anniversary so I made a reservation for my wife and myself. The food, the service and the attentiveness of the staff is second to none. My wife and I are not foodies, however we have gone on quite a number of cruises so we are used to good food and service. From the moment we walked in and were greeted by the charming hostess we knew this would be a great anniversary dinner. We were not disappointed. We read a 4.5 star review recently in the Baltimore Sun which pretty much confirmed our experience.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/13/2014
    Dinner at The Bartlett Pear Inn in Easton is a must for anyone who appreciates fine dining. Thanks to the talents of Chef Jordan, the menu is original and exciting, and perfectly executed. Most of the ingredients are sourced locally, and everything was fresh. Innkeeper Alice was very welcoming, and the table service was friendly and knowledgeable. I shall certainly return. The perfect place for a special occasion.

    We enjoyed our dinner and entire experience at the Bartlett Pear Inn. The before dinner peach drink started us off in great style. We thoroughly enjoyed the presentation and tastes of the tomato appetizer with warm bread and incredibly butter. We split the salmon and pasta with truffles which were scrumptious, and finished with delectable peach ice cream dessert. The service was excellent from start to end.

    We have stayed and eaten at Bartlett Pear several times, always regarding it as a special summer's-end treat. This time was no exception. The food continues at the highest level of refinement, and the service matches it. Every staff member seems primed to put the Inn's best face forward, and all seem invested in its success. Breakfasts for guests at the inn are spectacular - homemade brioche bread with local fresh eggs, to give one example. The inn maintains several farms to supply the kitchen. My only minor quibble is that I'm a big eater, and the dinner portions here are modest. The offerings are exquisite to look at, astonishing to eat, but small. I wanted double of everything.

    We've had two lovely and delicious dining experiences at The Bartlett Pear within the past month. The service was friendly and attentive,the food devine, and the atmosphere serene. We particularly liked the number of items available on the menu -- a nice selection but not too many to feel overwhelming. It is easy to taste Chef Jordan Lloyd's passion for farm to table cooking with every bite you take.

    We went to the Bartlett Pear to celebrate my husband's birthday and our anniversary. Absolutely loved it - from the moment we walked in the door! Everyone made us feel welcome. Since it was our first time there, we decided to try the tasting menu, which allowed us to try several dishes. All the dishes were prepared fresh and specifically for us - it was obvious from the taste that the food was not precooked and warmed prior to serving. The service was impeccable. The restaurant is about two hours from where we live, but will definitely return.

    Celebrated girlfriend's birthday here and simple gestures from the staff upon our arrival set the pace an excellent dining experience to follow. Quiet table, attentive but not intrusive service, remarkable menu, smart wine pairings. Food presentation only shadowed by the taste and preparation. Very rewarding visit and certainly more than worth the drive from Baltimore.

    I had dinner and breakfast at Bartlett Pear Inn. Gordon, the owner- chef, is a very talented, creative and personable chef. Everything I had was delicious and beautifully presented. When I mentioned that I did not eat wheat, he prepared a gluten-free brioche for me. Service is very professional as well. Attentive without being overly so. As a single diner, I was made to feel very welcome and was quite comfortable dining alone. BPI would hold its own vs. many upscale restaurants in the Washington area.

    We've gone many times and even stayed at the Inn. Would recommend for all occasions - The food is outstanding and everyone there is so nice. We've rarely had the same thing twice and it's all been great. While it is quiet and couple-friendly, they've also always been very accommodating to our kids. It is one of the best restaurants we've been to in the DC / Baltimore area.

    Try the tapas. That way you get to sample some of the items on the main menu. The scallops are truly fantastic, no exaggeration. Maybe the best I have ever had. Felt like they were caught & shucked just before hitting my plate. And the rare tuna melts in your mouth. End with the cheese board, like the French do. Also with the tapas you get to share what your table partner is having so it's a win-win dinner.

The dining room is simple but very attractive and the service was superb. To my mind, the Bartlett Pear should be a part of any foodie's visit to Easton, MD.

    We enjoyed every minute of our visit. The Inn is luxurious and relaxing. We had the Chef's tasting menu with wine pairings. The service is excellent, the food is superb, healthy and fresh, and wine complements it perfectly. Chef Jordan came by to visit with us. He is passionate about cooking creative food with the finest ingredients. The menu changes daily and everything, from the fabulous bread to the light and delicious desserts, is made in house. Of special note is the bartender who serves unique drinks made with fresh fruit juices. Breakfast served with french press coffee is spectacular too. It's clear that whatever is fresh and local is going to be on your plate. Chef Jordan trained at Citronelle and Per Se and it shows.

    It was my favorite combination of great food in a non-fussy, but casually elegant atmosphere. Greg, our extremely knowledgeable waiter, showed us the way with the chef's tasting menu. All 5 courses were beautifully served. But more importantly, the food was amazing! Starting with a mango/honey dew gazpacho...mmmm! We could have made a meal out of the mussels sauce and bread alone! Next was halibut with wonderfully smokey wild mushrooms! Our last entree, roasted pork shoulder, fell apart with all kinds of flavor. Finally we finished their to-die-for chocolate torte with a little bit of chocolate ice cream and small piece of caramelized orange. I'm tellin' ya you have to go and decide for yourself. This one's a winner in our book!

    As always, the food was exquisite. It's summer so the vegetables were melt-in-your mouth. I don't know what the chef does to the veggies but this place is one of the rare restaurants that serves vegetables that actually have taste and texture. The ahi tuna was perfect and the mushroom coated halibut was excellent. The desserts (yes, we were full but who can say no to their desserts) were so so so so so good. There's a chocolate mousse. . . .

    We reserved a table for our 10th Anniversary and decided to stay in one of the rooms at the Inn (10% discount on food for inn guests was a nice perk). Scallops and NY Strip were our selections, and the presentation and taste were both first-rate. Jordan, the executive chef, prides himself on the freshest ingredients and on using food from local farmers and fishermen. His choices inure to the great benefit of his diners, and we were no exception. The service is also impeccable. Our waiter was knowledgeable about the dishes and about the wines that paired best with them. The wine list is a bit limited, but it has perfect choices. Pricing may seem a bit high, but this is a restaurant where you clearly get what you pay for -- and more.

    The restaurant is rather small and on a warm evening the AC is straining to maintain a comfortable temperature. Overall, the food was quite good but a slightly cooler room would have made the experience more pleasurable. The menu is small and does not include any local fish (e.g. stripped bass) which is somewhat surprising because the restaurant champions local food and lists the various local vendors it uses. The Bay has lots of fresh seafood but the chef prefers RI scallops and west coast (?) halibut. No local crabs, oysters or other fresh catch are offered.

    This was one of the finest dining experiences we've ever had. Our duck and halibut entrees were very well prepared and very interesting as well. Seasonings, flavors in food prep were rather unique and delicious. Our server/mixologist made great suggestions of his speciality drinks (delicious) and wine to pair with our food. Loved the chocolate tart too. We came away feeling very satisfied without feeling uncomfortably full. We'll be back.

    Dined on 7/19/2014
    We had a delightful dinner on a almost cool July evening at one of the two tables on the screened in porch. Food was remarkable in serving sizes that were appropriately, filling but not to the point you felt stuffed or needed a dogie bag. The Chef even brought out one of our entrees and came back to make sure everything was perfect, which it was. Two of us had the scallops and I had the Halibut prepared in a delightfully different way. The only slight flaw was the size of the tomato and mozzarella salad. But it too was tasty. The wine list was small but appropriate pairings for the foods on the menu. .

    My husband and I have eaten at Chef Jordan Lloyd's fabulous restaurant numerous times, but this is the first time we tried the tasting menu and wine pairings. We selected the ahi tuna and the pork belly for our appetizers. Both were sizable portions which were not only delicious but were displayed artfully. For the entrees, we chose the duck and the halibut . Both were to-die-for and, as always, cooked to perfection. We topped off the evening by splitting the chocolate tart. The wines that were chosen to accompany each dish were excellent selections and complimented each course perfectly. If you haven't been to The Bartlett Pear Inn and are looking for the best food on the Eastern Shore, then put this restaurant at the top of your list.

    Not sure you really want to hear this. We had to ask for bread plates, service X 2, larger portions, out food to be heated. I cleared the table myself after waiting much too long. In short, it was a very disappointing evening. We had looked forward to it. We could not recommend it to anyone and will not return. My husband talked me into giving a good tip. Our waitress was very nice but much to inexperienced. The worse part was cold food that was not very good. We went elsewhere the next night. Somehow we got into a conversation about the restaurants in Easton. Out waitress int he second restaurant said that she had heard our same report from several customers. In some ways I was glad to hear that. It validated our experience.

    Celebrated our wedding anniversary here last Saturday and had a lovely time. The quality of the food and service are tops, and the complimentary Prosecco with our dinner was a lovely and appreciated touch. The ONLY suggestion I would make is for this divine restaurant to enlarge its menu just a bit. For those of us who don't eat meat or chicken, there were only three entrees (a pasta, a sea bass and scallops) to choose from--though I will say that our scallops were truly delicious!
