Ultimately, we had a marvelous meal, with one caveat. We went for a special occasion and arrived punctually for our reservation. Then we waited. And waited. And waited. We grew quite frustrated and hungry, standingbin the middle of a busy bar. That said, we were comped a bottle of wine for our travails, and tried the chef's tasting menu. It was out of this world. Farmhouse, candlelit ambience, an attentive waiter, unforgettable food.

Cozy, five star dining!
My husband and I went to stay at the inn for a 2 night getaway and we enjoyed the wonderful dinner at their restaurant on the first night. The dining room was cozy with a wood burning fireplace and we were seated at a corner table. The room was only lighted by candles and the fireplace. The menu had a delicious variety of options and every item we ordered was exceptional. The staff service was perfect. It was a wonderful cozy romantic dinner. We took our own time dining and were never rushed. This is a great place to go to for a special occasion or for a romantic evening with the one you love!

This is a lovely yet simple
This is a lovely yet simple restaurant in a country setting. The service was excellent, the candle light romantic and the food divine. For a special occasion (it was my birthday) it was quite special. The portions however, by American standards, are a bit small, for the price of the Prix Fixe menus. The mid-week alternative might be better suited for many with a budget. We will return, but perhaps mid-week.

Wonderful dinner in the Berkshires
My wife and I stayed at The Old Inn On The Green and had dinner there for our 10th anniversary. Beautiful historic setting/ambiance, all the dining rooms are lit by candle only, no electrical lighting, which is a great period touch.
Absolutely outstanding meals. My wife had the lobster risotto, which she said was the best she'd ever had (and she's had quite a bit, her parents emigrated from Italy in '68). Her entree was the shortribs, which were amazing. I started with the fois gras, served with wild mushrooms and it was melt-in-your mouth pefect. My entree was the herb-encrusted lamb, which was cooked perfect, we were sad when the food was gone!

Not as outstanding as in the past
This has been our "go-to" place for special occasions but, this time, the quality of the food, though quite good, did not measure up to the superlative levels attained in our past visits. Given the cost (plus non-acceptance of a use of a valid discount certificate for a seasonal special for only 1 of 2 dinners - meaning ordering the same items on the "seasonal" menu from the higher cost a la carte menu - despite the fact that one of us was ordering from the a la carte menu) and less than unique quality, we'll spend our special occasions elsewhere in the future.

Best Dining Experience
Off the beaten path but highly recommended. The food was perfect in every way, Max our waiter was exceptional. The amuse bouche and the little taste of the potato leek soup added the right touch to our 1st courses of Sautéed Soft Sell Crab and a delightful salad.

This place is worth a trip by itself. True 18th century charm sets the decor for a fabulous meal. There are only a small and large tasting menu available on saturday. We had the latter, and it was a delight. I strongly recommend to take the wine pairing. In contrast to the wine list on which each bottle was seriously overpriced - in my experience only the Tour d'argent in Paris did worse - the pairing selection gives value for money.

We have been eating in this place since the 1980's and it never fails to make us happy. Absolutely world-class food served in dining rooms in an inn from the 1700's lit ONLY by candles, and served by a staff that is friendly but not in the in-you-face way. We die for the bread made on the premises. We have eaten in many places around the world that try hard but don't reach the level of cosistency and finesse that makes this special

Great food, slow service
Wonderful food and amazing ambiance. The servers were all incredibly nice, but not particularly attentive or consistent. We were helped by a variety of servers and they all seemed a bit frazzled. Worth overlooking for the food!

Superb as always
The Old Inn never disappoints - innovative preparation of fresh local ingredients, excellent service, beautiful ambience, and reasonable prices considering that this is top-notch cooking.

The food was outstanding.
The food was outstanding. Each and every dish was extremely well-prepared, interesting, and delicious. The waiter was professional, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful., but not intrusive.
The setting is an old inn. It is quaint and romantic, and lit only by candlelight. The rooms are small, which helps to reduce the noise level. The only complaint registered by anyone in our party was that the air conditioning was insufficient given the warmth of the evening. This reduced the pleasure off the experience which was otherwise faultless.

I have been waiting a long time for an experience like this. Unbelievably delicious food in a comfortable environment and great service. Can't wait to go back!

Fabulous dining experience
This is by far one of the best restaurants we have ever dined at! We have celebrated our anniversary here for the past 15 years and are more impressed each year! Thank you!

Love the Inn. We got married
Love the Inn. We got married there and we go back every year for our anniversary. We also love to go every season, though, it always a special and unique experience. A must not miss when in the Berkshires!

Delicious sophisticated, friendly
In an unlikely rural location, Old Inn on the Green is one of the finest restaurants I have enjoyed. I have worked in NYC for 35 years traveled extensively and consider myself to be a very good home cook. The food is beautifully presented, properly seasoned while honoring the excellent ingredients. Worth a special trip.

An off the beaten path gem
It pays to go off the beaten path to dine at this outstanding restaurant. We have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. Get the tasting menu with wine pairing for a special treat. Expensive but worth it.

Getting ridiculously expensive
Been coming to the inn for several years.. It's getting insanely expensive.
I plan to think twice before going for dinner. There are other alternatives in town.

Not many good restaurants in the area so worth the 13 mile drive
Good food great service nice ambience

What a treat for our anniversary
This restaurant is amazing. Everything was perfect. We arrived late for our reservation ( we did let them know) and they were able to accommodate us with no problem. Despite the level of excellence, this place is not the least bit pretentious. Although we didn't get the tasting menu, we hope to do that when we are a little more flush, we had several items from it that were absolutely delicious. Every course was a delight and our server was attentive, enthusiastic, helpful and a very good listener. I had the lamb and I just loved it. In addition, the portion sizes were just right. I would recommend this restaurant with no reservations whatsoever and hope to return for our next anniversary.

Romantic restaurant, haute cuisine
When it started getting really dark I realized that the place was totally lit by candles, including the hanging chandeliers. Quite fabulous. And the food was absolutely terrific. Warm duck breast on spinach salad was unique and delicious, the rack of lamb perfect, and dessert was some of the best we've had in years. Lightest pastry stuffed with the freshest fruit. Worth the p;rice.

A Gem in the Berkshires
Built in the 1730s this Inn looks grand and almost southern from the outside with its colonnade but inside has multiple small cozy rooms lit by candlelight only. The service was excellent and the staff served appetizer and dessert specials in addition to our orders. The food was excellent except for one minor item on my plate which was short ribs. I enjoyed the rare steak that came with
It, however. Depending on the night of the week when you go, the prix fixe dinner with five courses is quite pricey or you can get a prefix dinner with three courses which is quite reasonable. We had the latter.

Beautiful setting in historic village in historic inn with great, great food and perfectly matched wines. The menu showcases the highest quality meats and fish done in classic dishes. Seared foie gras was excellent but almost the star was a tiny beet tartin -- that was truly memorable. This is not avant garde food so go expecting delicious but not extraordinary. This is not to be negative in any way. The only issue, however, is the price: the tasting menu with wine pairing for two was way over $400. We have no issue spending that amount and more for a special dinner but it needs to be exciting and memorable. But it's such a charming place that we would be happy to return for the candle lit rooms alone.

This was our second visit which was not as good as our first. Very expensive (dinner only food bill for 2 about $110) for what was a rather average meal.

Lets just say I am a foodie, a snob, and the pickiest palette in New England. The amuse bouche was a great start with lobster on endive and I forgot the other bite. I ordered The diver scallops and poached lobster appetizer while my husband had the sun choke soup. Both amazing, but the saffron purée that accompanied mine was a little sweet which cut into the savoriness of the dish. Then, the chef sent out a roasted beet tarte tartin which we licked the plate clean. My husband got the seared Ahi tuna and I got the pasta with roasted mushrooms, tomatoes, and goat cheese. For dessert, because there is always room for sweets after dinner, I ordered the chocolate fallen cake and he got the pumpkin cake, both were amazing. best dinner in U.S.

If Michelin were in this neck of the woods, they would probably award a star for the virtuoso kitchen. The candlelit dining room, fireplace and ancient country inn ambiance are magical While our waiter was personable and professional, his two assistants needed more training and focus. You will find some fine choices on the wine list, but not at all price points. Strong on American wines, the European list is uneven and perhaps geared to "expense account" types. They seem unaware that there are Burgundies that don't require a mortgage payment. My Italian and Spanish friends would be annoyed at the cursory nod to their repertoire. The quality of the cooking is such that the above failings can be forgiven.

This venue is great for that special occasion and that special person. We always go in the winter, when the fireplaces and candles add a special aura. The food and service are impeccable. All in all, a fine experience.

Truly an amazing dining experience!
This was one of the finest meals I have ever had in the most charming and friendly atmospheres I've ever experienced. Such a treat to have endulged. Everything was superb, from the service, to the mouthwatering food, and even the incredible ambiance. It was a re-awakening of all senses to as close to perfection as you'll possibly ever get!
