My husband and I stayed at
My husband and I stayed at the hotel for the first time this past weekend and had an opportunity to try all of the restaurants at the Bedford Springs Resort. They were all spectacular, each one suited for different occasions. We ate at the Crystal room twice - once for breakfast and once for dinner. We enjoyed both - food and service was excellent, wait staff was friendly...would highly recommend to anyone and we will definitely go back again. Crystal room has an upscale decor and seems like a place for special "dress up" events, but even at breakfast their was a mix of clientel - from the couple enjoying a romantic meal to a group of ladies having a girls get together, to a young couple with their newborn. All fit in. Try it and enjoy!

My daughter and I were guests at the resort and because my birthday was the day before, and I thought this might be a nice way to celebrate. My daughter started with the lobster salad, which was delicious, and I had a green salad with just the right amount of dressing. I ordered the venison, which was done perfectly. Venison is my very favorite, and this was the best I had ever eaten. My daughter ordered the duck and thought it was excellent, as well. Although we don't usually order dessert, we selected the chocolate cake with a cappuccino ice cream to split -- It was unbelievably good! The wine was perfect with our food selections, too. The service was excellent, and we had a nice, quiet table. Just a perfect evening!

Overall dining experience
Overall our experience at the Bedford Springs was fantastic. Morning breakfast buffet in the Crystal Room was wonderful including the food and selection. Our night dining experience was great also however the lighting was pretty dim which made it hard to view the menus. The lights on the table were just for looks as we were told they didn't have candles to put in them...uhm!!!! Food was good but not spectacular, at least the Salmon. My Salmon was dry and had no seasoning on it other then perhaps salt. Some sauce of some type would've been great to serve with it as it would've enhanced the flavor of the fish and also would've made it moist.

The service at the Crystal Dining Room was outstanding. The staff were all very friendly without being too over the top. The food was excellent and the decor is gorgeous.
5/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was excellent, but the portions were slim and the service was slow.

My husband and I enjoyed our first anniversary celebration at the Crystal Dining Room. My husband enjoyed a
good duck dish and I had salmon that was very good. The staff was attentive and the ambiance was romantic-just
what we wanted. We also enjoyed heaping desserts- a crème brulee and 3 scoops of ice cream. Very generous portions

Everything was wonderful from the food to the service, we could not complain!

Good Dinner--Great Sunday Brunch!
We are there twice. The dinner experience (food) was good but not great.... We returned for the Sunday brunch and the food prep and choices were excellent!!

Elegant yet relaxed..
We enjoyed our evening at the Crystal Room.It is a beautifully decorated room, and it was a delight to dine there.
We will be back next time we stay at the fabulous Bedford Springs again

excellent food,interesting menu .flexability to choose any vegetableon the menu e.g. if you didn't like the red cabbage that came with the meal it could be switched with the asparagus that came with another item on the menu.

Amazing food once again!
We have been having an anniversary dinner at this restaurant for our anniversary for the past few years, and it is always amazing. Chef Josh always accommodates our dietary issues (one vegan, one vegetarian with food allergies). Strongly recommended!

Have been regularly coming to Bedford Springs since I was a child in the early 60s. I love the historic atmosphere and it just is never disappointing.
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
We ate dinner and breakfast at the Crystal Dining Room, and we were pleased with both meals.
Dinner. The lobster bisque was excellent as was the venison consommé. Their version of a Ceasar Salad needs to be tried. Service was very attentive and each course was served timely. The only minor item to mention, I like to select my side dishes as opposed to having the chef make the selection.
Breakfast. You can select from a menu or have the buffet, both were great.
6/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent selections, family friendly and delicious food.
6/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good food, nice evening
As with everything at the Bedford Omni it was great!
7/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
From the moment we entered to the moment we left, the experience was impeccable. The food was fresh and excellently prepared. The ingredients and combinations were upscale and contemporary. Our entrees were delectable. We were completely satisfied.

An Anniversary Visit
This visit to the resort was our first since Omni took over. We thought it would be a great spot to celebrate our 47th anniversary. It was in every way. We reserved our anniversary dinner for the Crystal Dining Room. The room was beautiful, the menu offered a wide selection, as did the wine list. My wife selected the filet mignon and I the salmon. My wife asked that the filet be prepared medium rare. It was more medium than rare but, more to the point, the piece of meat itself was tough...not what you expect for filet in a 5 star dining room. When asked about our meal we didn't really say anything, preferring to simply enjoy the moment and the wine. Just know that that was a bit of a disappointment in an otherwise lovely stay.
7/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
We dined on filet mignon, scallops, and polenta - all were excellent! We were seated right away based on our reservation. It seemed noisy at first, but then quieted down. Halfway through our meal, however, a wedding band began upstairs which we could definitely hear! It didn't ruin our time, but didn't add to it! I really enjoyed how the polenta was prepared (lots of peppers, arugula, sundries tomatoes) so I would recommend this restaurant for the delicious food!

Wonderful Meal Start to Finish
My husband and I had a wonderful meal at the Crystal room with great food and service. The water glasses were kept full, and they didn't wait to long to take our drink and food order. He started with the lobster bisque, and I the ceasar salad, both excellent. For a main, my husband ordered the bacon wrapped veal, and I ordered the chicken supreme. They did a very nice job with plate presentation. I was pleasantly surprised at how large the portions were. For dessert we had the ameretto chocolate cake. Needless to say, we left completely stuffed. The prices I felt were fair for the quality of the food, the preparation, and the ambiance. For the two of us the total bill was $110 before tip with the food mentioned above and a glass of wine.

The Crystal room at bedford springs resort is a first class gourmet restaurant that does not disappoint. Each of our meals, were delicious and were beautifully presented. The rack of lamb was as good as we have ever had anywhere. The pistachio encrusted duck breast was simply one of the best tasting meals, that I have ever enjoyed. When visiting Bedford Springs, I strongly encourage you to have dinner at the Crystal room

Great food but the wait was way too
We had a 7:15pm reservation. Seated promptly . Dining room is great to see and be in. We got two beers promptly but the rest of us had to wait more than 15 minutes for two shirley temples for a 6 and 9 year old and two glasses of wine.
Our appetizers arrived 30 minutes after we sat down as did the fish and chips children's meal for our 6 year old. By 8:15 the waitress brought our 9 year old her lobster bisque. She had apologized to the table about the delay at least three times.
Finally around 8:25 all main entrees appeared served and presented and wonderful to eat. We are not certain what happened but selected for the next two nights to dine locally in Bedford. Had excellent meals at two new resturants.

solid hotel dining in bedford
I don't always dine inside hotels where I'm staying, but the Crystal Dining Room at the Omni Bedford was a pleasant experience. Priced as most higher end establishments are. Took my young kids--who were treated great--and had a reasonable kids menu to order off. There was a nice tasting item from the chef to start things off, and excellent breads from the bakery. I had the duck entrée and the tuna appetizer--both very good. There is an even higher end place on the property--but no kids--so that was not an option. But I've found the dining at the Omni Bedford excellent.
8/19/2013 5:00:00 PM
The meal was good. The menu doesn't change, no daily specials. The 1796 is the better restuarant of the two at the resort. The staff is probably the friendliest I have ever met. I would return.
The bread and butter was fabulous.
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were guests of the hotel
We were guests of the hotel and the restaurant was recommended to us. It was good but expensive. They were not able to locate the wine I had ordered, Pinot Grigio. I order a reisling instead. My husband ordered salmon which was dry. We were definitely better satisified with the other restaurant, 1792, the next night than this one.
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first time to the Bedford Springs and the Crystal Room. The breakfast buffet is $22 and does not require reservations. It was very good. We went at about 10:00 AM. It was pretty full but the service was attentive. You can order ala carte if you like as well. The buffet included scrambled eggs, bacon, ham, sausage, french toast, breakfast potatoes, pastries, fruit, oatmeal, cereal, and breads. A beverage is also included in the buffet. The french toast was very good. YUM! It was good even without maple syrup. The decor was similar to the decor throughout the hotel but of course this room had crystal chandeliers. The tables and chairs were simple but elegant. I would highly recommend the Crystal Room for breakfast.

Crystal Room is a Gem
The Crystal Room never disappoints. The food, wine, service and ambience are outstanding. Best meal we have since our last visit to the Crystal Room! We love the Bedford Springs Resort, and the Crystal Room is just one of the may reasons. We can't wait to return.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
From the moment we stepped into the Crystal Room, our experience was exquisite. The service, food and ambiance of the Crystal Room left us feeling special, pampered and sated our appetites with the tastes that lingered on the palate. The use of local, fresh ingredients does not go unnoticed and the heirloom tomato salad with watercress had a nice tang and our main entrees (filet mignon with morel dusted scallops and bacon wrapped veal) were prepared perfectly and to our specifications. Everything about the Crystal Room is first class. Can't wait to go back and try other offerings.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had excellent service. The food was 5 star. I will go back as soon as I am in the Bedford area.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fresh and with a Flair
We both had salads, entrees and deserts. Each item was prepared with care, imagination and delicious ingredients. The service was efficient and unobtrusive. All in all a very pleasant, enjoyable dinner. We look forward to visiting the Crystal Room again.

Great Resort/Good restaurant
Our visit to the Crystal room was directly related to our stay at the Omni Bedford Springs. Was it a good meal? Yes. Would we search out this restaurant if we weren't staying as guests at the hotel? No. The service was GREAT, the food was good, but we felt the prices were higher than they should have been. The prices obviously reflect the fact that there is no other competition for the Crystal Room other than it's sister restaurant 1796 Room that's also at the Omni so menu prices can be set high. In the end, the Crystal Room is a romantic place to dine while visiting the Omni Bedford Springs Resort.

Dining at the Crystal Dining
Dining at the Crystal Dining Room does not dissappoint! The innovative food selections are always delicious. The service is wonderful. Our dining experience only enhances our total weekend girls spa get-away.

A wonderful restaurant in
A wonderful restaurant in a beautiful resort. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at the Crystal Dining Room. The food was delicious. We had the duck breast and the striped bass. Both were cooked perfectly with the accompanying sauces adding depth to the overall flavors. Service was good. The wine list offers a nice selection. We were celebrating our 25th anniversary with a weekend at the Bedford Spring Spa and the entire experience was wonderful. We'll be back - both to the Crystal Dining Room and the hotel.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was fabulous...steak melts in your mouth. The wait staff is very attentive but not annoying. It is a little louder in this restaurant because they have an open kitchen, but it wasn't overwhelming. The room itself is just beautiful...very tastefully decorated. This was one of the best meals I've had in a long time!
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Enjoyable and elegant dinner
The service and the food were both excellent. The food was nicely presented, but I was dismayed to find a gravy or meat juice stain on the tablecloth right in front of me. This is something that should not be acceptable at such an upscale resort and at the prices we were paying for our dinner. This is a small, but very important detail.
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Elegant as ever!
This is our 4 th visit, and we love the feel of this restaurant .
I always have the spring onion soup, amazing, I also always order the duck, but forget how I can never finish it as it is so very very rich and sweet .So I will be trying something else next visit.
The elderberry gluten free( I am not!)- cheesecake was fabulous.
The service can be a little rushed, so next time we will ask to slow it down a little
