    Very nice room and wait staff. We liked the updated menu and they still kept the Chocolate Box to end the dinner. The food was really good and the staff kept our table clean. We started with three cheese choices with honey, then some good appts. The main meals were really good!!

    A bit of a disappointment. I have had many meals here and always been impressed by the food, service and ambiance. Brunch had the ambiance, but the service was very slow and unattentive. The food was just okay. Not remarkable in a good way which was a surprise. I think I will stick with dinners for my next meal there.

    Wanted to try the limited time offer of Local Harvest Dinner menu. 3 courses for $39 or $45 if you still had room for a 4th course of dessert - a very good deal as the portions were just the right amount. One diner started with pumpkin bisque, followed by kale and Brussels sprout salad and finishing with the catch of the day selection, baked cod. All courses were delicious but very rich! Companion dined on the other offering on the menu - orecchetti pasta, spinach salad, and pork loin dinner. All courses very elegantly presented and almost looked too pretty to eat, but we managed!

    The menu was not a good one, in that the food choices were limited and it was very costly for two people who did not drink alcohol. I will not recommend this restaurant to people in the future, we were very disappointed.

    The food was nothing short of amazing. We shared the crab cake appetizer and it was delicious! My husband said they were the best crab cakes he's ever had. For our main courses, I had butter poached lobster which was to die for. It was so tender and flavorful. I also had the Fall Sangria which was wonderful. My husband had steak (a filet, I think) and it was also very good. It was cooked perfectly and very tender. The only negative was the noise level. We were seated in a room with a few tables, and the diners at one table were very loud and obnoxious. The manager asked if we wanted to move, but our dinners had already been served. We thought the manager should have asked them politely to tone it down. It was just a fluke, but annoying.

    We never pass up a reason to dine at the BVI and this past Columbus Day holiday was no exception. My brother who dines all over the world absolutely loves the BVI and always looks forward to it whenever he has occasion to be in New Hampshire. As always, this last visit didn't disappoint. The clam chowder was a wonderful start to the meal, but the pork chop special was amazing! We absolutely love the fire pit addition and the outdoor music. What a perfect place to spend a beautiful, crisp fall evening.

    We met long time friends and the inn was very accommodating to our needs. Our fifth visit and have never been disappointed. Our server was terrific and was patient and very attentive. She was so well trained. The food was delicious and was such a nice presentation. Our burgers and salmon plate were just delicious. The ambiance was relaxed and charming

    We have been going here every year for our anniversary, this was our 25th year. This year was disappointing not due the the resteraunt but to other customers behavior. We had 2 separate tables near us in the dining who we're using some crude language and were very loud which we found very shocking as we have never experienced this before at BVI.

    We have loved the BVI for quite a while for its exquisite culinary masterpieces as well as unmatched service in a great ambiance. We had a fantastic server, Jim who truly exceeded any expectations by providing a superb experience in every single detail! One of the best, most thorough and by far very knowledgeable and polite. Even so, we missed Luis, but Jim made it easier to cope. Thank you!

    We frequent BVI whenever we have a special occasion like a birthday or anniversary. Once in a while, we just go because we feel like having a nice meal like the other night. I loved my lobster dish and my husband enjoyed his filet mignon, although it was a bit underdone for him. The wait staff is efficient and very professional. Over all, very nice experience.

    We were married at the BVI and went back for dinner on our 10th Aniv. We mentioned that in our reservation. We were impressed as usual with the food ( we are foodies) but the attention paid to us was outstanding. We dined on the patio and had one of the most enjoyable evenings of the summer. Thanks to the chef and staff at the BVI.

    We come here frequently, and we always say the same things: best white-tablecloth spot within 40 miles (Boston is 45 miles from us!). Too expensive to add to the "regular" list, but just a very satisfying old-country-inn setting with haute-cuisine kitchen and service experience. We'll be back, of course, as soon as we have more visitors to show it off to.

    Had relatives in town from far away, I was looking for a quite spot where I could get good food, excellent service and a place where we could sit and talk with feel like you were going to be pushed out for the next customer and the Bedford Village in was the perfect spot! The server was attentive but not on you every minute trying to take your order, he was friendly and helpful. The food was simply amazing my wife and I had duck and my family member had the lobster they loved it. My relatives had a cup of clam chowder in the words of my uncle “the best he has ever had”. The wine selection was perfect lots of selection at all price levels. The breads they brought to our table were excellent. We all share desert which was to die for.

    We had dinner on the patio outside of the main dining room. Food and service were both great and the ambiance would have been fantsatic if it wasn't from the traffic noise. Not much you can do about the traffic noise. The Bedford Inn was probably there long before the highway was. Our highlight was before dinner. As a guest of the Inn we were treated to a glass of wine and a cheese plate in the Wine Bar before dinner. The wine bar is very nice itself and the winre and cheese plate were very special. Thanks to the Bedfors for such a great idea!!!

    My wife and I made reservations for a Saturday night. we requested the Porch.It is nice and bright and has many windows so you can see outdoors. It was a beautiful night and after dinner we asked if we could finish our drinks outside. they were having a wedding going on there that night also. So we could hear music playing while we finished our drinks. The waiter,Tony came and brought our check and also brought us some goodies and a piece of chocolate with Happy Anniversary written on it. Nice touch. The food was amazing,and the service outstanding. the manager was also around making sure things were going smooth. Everyone who works there makes you feel special and goes out of their way for you.Great place to go for a special occasion.

    We love the BVI! We've brought different people there over the years and every single person raved about the food. My favorite is the lamb but it's hard to know when it will be on the menu (my one and only complaint). My husband can not make up his mind what he loves the best, salmon or chicken. This last visit I had the duck, Oo la la can I say more?
