    What a treat it is to dine at the Bartlett Pear Inn! The menu and food preparation is so creative and delicious that the menu descriptions don't begin to do it justice. The attention to detail in all aspects of the food preparation and presentation is evident. Love that the menu features locally sourced food at its freshest and best. This is also the case for the innovative specialty cocktails. The restaurant is pleasantly small, well-lit with a warm inviting atmosphere, and more peaceful than most dining venues, which is great for couples and small groups who wnt to the enjoy and appreciate the food and company. There is a nice selection of wines. Desserts and French-press coffee are not to be missed. This is our favorite restaurant in Easton for a special occasion.

    We escaped to Easton for a quick anniversary get away. A very good decision. Food is amazing. The Eastern shore awesome. The rooms are not luxury hotel rooms, but modern well decorated rooms in an old inn like setting. That said, that just what we wanted. Do yourself a favor and try it.

    We couldn't ask for a nicer, more romantic setting for a special occasion. The service from all of the staff was very attentive without being in the least bit obtrusive. They all knew exactly when to show up and when to disappear. And to top it all off, the food was excellent, beautifully presented and delicious. So, all in all, a delightful evening. (The noise level was low, very easy to carry on a conversation without raising our voices. The rating above won't accept my choice.)

    We met friends at the Bartlett Pear for a birthday dinner and everything about the evening was perfect. The chef's tasting menu was diverse and delicious with surprises and wonderful combinations of flavor and textures. The dining room atmosphere was lively but you still had a sense of privacy. I will always remember our evening.

    Salad greens and bread were the best part of the meal. The risotto was salty. The duck confit was too fatty. The Barlett pear desert was as hard as a rock. The wine by the glass choices could have been better. The server was very good, almost too attentive.

    This was our second visit for dinner and first for an overnight stay. Dinner was very good and worth the drive. Our server was very nice but she was kept very busy. We had to work to get her attention. The waitress appeared to be the only server in the dining room. Just too many tables to wait on. The guest room was charming but needs some work. The bed is way too soft for those of us who need back support. The lighting was dim and it was hard to see. There was a common area where you could make your own coffee . It would have been nice to have some cookies or a light snack laid out in that area for guests.

    We had the tasting menu with paired wines. The food was excellent, but the wine was even better. Alice, the owner, chose the wines and served the first two flights. Her husband is the chef. I'd heard great things about this restaurant on Maryland's Eastern Shore for years, and it didn't disappoint. There are only a few restaurants in the greater Washington, D.C., area that can rival it. The best food course was the pasta with wild mushrooms and truffles. The most unusual was octopus with curried kefir lime ice cream and a splash of hot garlic broth. Overall, we were very happy with the whole experience.

    we had taken guests from the Western Shore for dinner. This was the very first time in over 3 years that we had a less than exceptional experience. We waited for over 45 minutes for our reservation. We were aware of how busy the restaurant was, but couldn't help but notice with the departure of many of the original staff, the service was not what it used to be. The food was outstanding as usual. We love Jordan and Alice and will continue to be regular customers, but the newer team needs some polishing!!

    Had a combination of appetizers and small plates -- local oysters, PEU mussels, squash soup, salad and scallops. Plenty of food and varied flavored for both of us. Nice selection of wines. We finished with home-made ice cream and coffee. I like non-fat milk in my coffee but they only have regular and cream. They could not instantly provide NF milk, but since I was staying the night, the server made certain that there would be NF milk in time for breakfast. Great food and exceptional service.

Terrific service, perfect portions and a helpful waitstaff makes this place rival and surpass any Jose Andres restaurant, but in the middle of a small rural area. Will make the road trip again

    Charming site, excellent, well-prepared and attractively presented food; server was knowledgeable, attentive and personable. Wine list was not deep, but was certainly adequate, with a wide range of prices. Restaurant is located in an older house, but is conducive to quiet conversation; no need to shout. Strongly recommend this as one of the best on the Eastern Shore.

    Bartlett Pear Inn is my favorite restaurant on the Eastern shore and the Washington area. I brought my prepschool roommates and spouses to a reunion,after 50 years, and a dinner on Saturday evening. We had the private room as well as a 5 course tasting dinner with wonderful wine pairing. The meal and service was Outstanding as were the unique cocktails we had before dinner. Greg,our waiter was so knowledgeable on aspects of our meal and food source that the dinner was even more enjoyable with his assistance. Chef Jordon was also very helpful. Needless to say we all spent hours talking about our family & careers over these past 50 years and marveled at the wonderful meal and service. Looking forward to a return visit, very soon.

    One of the best, if not the very best, dining experiences of my long life. The food was prepared and served in a most appealing way. The mussels were uniquely outstanding. Descriptions such as "delicious," "attractive," and "value" would all be appropriate for this dining experience. Not even the hour and a half drive will deter us - we shall return. The evening could not have been improved upon.

    A perfect bar with a quiet table in the bar beside the fireplace. Same wonderful menu. I'm always wishing for a wider selection of California Chardonnays and at a moderate price. Besides the unacceptable bar wine, having a middle selection of $57 and a top selection of $88 is a bit steep. Dinner for two at $180 does not encourage dinners to rush back. That said, this was our 41st time dining there since the restaurant was opened 5 years ago. Superb chef and wait staff. A truly elegant dining experience.

    Dinner was excellent. The Paparadelle (not sure of spelling) was one of the best pasta dishes I've ever had, and the duck was superb, and so was the dessert. Breakfast, however, was not so good - both the pancakes and eggs had some kind of strange seasoning. The service was quite helpful but never intrusive, and the dining room is lovely.

    Bartlett Pear is our favorite spot to celebrate a special occasion. This time it was our 42nd anniversary. We sat on the small, private porch overlooking the garden. For the first time, we chose to have Chef Jordan's 5 course tasting menu with wine pairings which is an incredible value.. Trusting to the chef's choices rather than our own (which is an option), we enjoyed everything immensely. The portions are half size so you don't get too full & the pacing is perfect. The dessert -- cheesecake parfait -- was terrific, as was the plum cocktail accompanying it. Love the Pear!

    Lovely dining experience with class. No need to dress to the "nines" - casual elegance is appropriate - no shorts or baseball caps. Pleasant atmosphere in old home in the heart of Easton. A bit pricey but worth it. Quality food beautifully prepared. Remember the old saying "you get what you pay for"! Our party of four agreed it was one of the best meals we've had in a very long time and we have eaten in restaurants all over the world.

    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.

    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 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.
