We went there on Mother's
We went there on Mother's day so it was a bit hectic. Service was good but not great. Food was very good but have found it better when the restaurant wasn't as full. The surrounding gardens are beautiful and add to the charm of the inn/restaurant. I would make it a regular if it was easier to get a reservation in the Barn.

Comforting elegant dining
Chef's tasting menu showcased a nice variety of items on the a la carte menu...everything was prepared in appropriate portions, not too small, with balanced flavors and cooked to perfection. Nice wine selections. Staff was very attentive and unobtrusive. Ambiance was a comforting relaxed elegance.

A phenomenal experience
We dined at The Bedford Post on Saturday evening and everything about the experience was wonderful.
The food was fresh, delicious, and beautifully prepared.
The service was excellent and the atmosphere was so beautiful.
This is a very special dining experience and one I would recommend to others who love great food and atmosphere.

The special menu created for the BBQ event was great. I had the whole hog and that vinegar flavor worked perfect with the hog. My wife had the salmon and loved it. Hats off too Jeremy for his take on southern hog. The chess pie for dessert was outstanding. Reminded me of Momofulku in the city. The courses were bunched a little to close, in regards to timing. Definitely return for another summer grill tasting and try the outside patio.

had a great 11th anniversary
We have been lucky with the perfect temperature for a dinner in the garden. The 5 courses tasting menu was extremely enjoyable. They also kindly changed one course to accommodate my wife.
A minor comment on the music: volume was ok, not too loud, but they could pay a bit more attention to the selection, a bit of classical music or some jazz would be more appropriate.
One watch out: on the way out we walked through the main dining room inside - which had by then filled up - and the noise level was pretty high... definitely much better out there in the garden. But then again, temperature needs to be right for that.
We truly enjoyed and will be back as soon as they change the seasonal menu, which they do every 2-3 months I believe.

celebrated our 26th anniversary
celebrated our 26th anniversary there on friday night. Our server could not have been more attentive (but not stuffy or overbearing), the food is fresh, local and delicious, and we were surprised by the healthy size of the portions.
Brunch at the barn is always a good bet as well, although the service there is disorganized and slow.
5/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
From the moment we arrived to celebrate our anniversary we were treated with care. Atmosphere is beautiful, great for special occasions. Food was delicious. Our favorites were the asparagus appetizer and the homemade pasta with cheese was wonderful. Service was very attentive and a dessert plate was decorated with Happy Anniversary in chocolate which was a nice touch. I would recommend it especially for a special occasion.

a delightful place to enjoy seasons
as we stepped out of the parking lot and walked toward the garden, 5 y.o. daughter's first comment was, "i love this place, could we please, please come back to this restaurant?"
we hesitated to try this place due to concern over level of service. (our local favorite special occasion joint is le chateau b/c of their service.) peter, the manager, made an effort to introduce himself to all guests. our waiter was nice albeit slow to refill wine glasses. found local rumors about the service didn't apply that night. will definitely return again.
garden choices were excellent and the pork chop was beautiful. salmon was a bit too salty to my taste. DD loved her chicken fingers but it was on the salty side, close to horse & hound.

my husband and I enjoy the whole experience from beginning to end, the way we were greeted, the food was amazing, service top notch dinner was not rushed would highly recommend to all especially couples, very romantic.....
6/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
We don't go often, because it an't cheep, but when we go we are always happy. I commented to my wife there is not another restaurant who's room I would like to be seated not too crowded not too noisy nicely appointed. One of maybe 4 , and that is a stretch, restaurants worth going to in all over Westchester.
6/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
We wanted something different for our anniversary and we are pleased that we found this charming Inn that was only 40 minutes away. The ambiance was charming and country-like, the food unique with the outdoor grill and pit. The wine list well chosen and not over the top. The service pleasant and not rushed. We will definitely be back.
6/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
fathers day dinner
as always, the room and setting are beautiful.....we were not told when we booked there would be prix fixe for fathers day dinner....food choices were fine, but not our favorite meal at the restaurant. the antipasti was wonderful, appetizers good, swordfish and lobster rolls as entrees were really lacking in flavor. the two who had steak were very happy with that choice. the desserts were delicious. will go back, but hopefully the fill menu will be back in play next time
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good---should be fabulous
We ate at this casually elegant spot---outside on stone patio by fountain---and loved the food! The food and the ambiance at this very country inn were memorable. Very fresh ingredients, uniquely prepared. The service, however, needs an upgrade. We were seated with no menus, no water, and no "may I get you a drink?" It was many minutes before we flagged down a waiter and asked for menus. Slow service was not due to lack of help--- there were more waitstaff than tables at the time. Once we got going, things picked up--- our waiter was cheerful, knowledgeable and semi-attentive. We will go back--- food is that good and so is the ambiance---but I hope they work on service---it could really spoil the night.
6/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Bedford Post is consistently good with an interesting menu, great outdoor seating and lovely spaces both inside and out. Portion sizes are good (not too small, not too large) and again, it's a fresh and interesting menu with everything ordered served beautifully. House made pastas are always a treat.
The service is good but the wait staff sometimes seems a little "snooty". (Not sure you're good enough for their fine restaurant?) The manager however is a treat: Peter may stop by for a chat. Wish he'd rub off on the waiter...
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Farmhouse dining room is so lovely.......so comfortable and welcoming with soft,perfect lighting. We requested a quiet table and were treated royally by Michael, with a delightful glass of Prosecco in honor of our special occasion. Service was helpful and friendly/not at all pretentious, and the food was very farm-fresh and delicious. Wine selection was excellent, but suggest an offering of a less expensive Chardonnay........$29 a glass is a bit steep!

We had a wonderful meal at the Farmhouse. The Patio is delightful. The restaurant is trying very hard to please. We were given complimentary tastes of the mushroom minestra which was excellent. We would also recommend the antipasto and grilled lobster.

We have been to the Inn several times and it is always a treat. Food is excellent and imaginative and service is friendly and efficient.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved the beautiful atmosphere here and the excellent, inventive food preparation and presentation. Snap peas with feta cheese and mint were a crunchy delight and the mushroom soup w parmigiana enriched stock rich and satisfying. Several of us had the grilled salmon which was flavorful because of a citrus marinade. We considered sitting outside but the smoke from the outdoor grill was too intense, blowing directly at the tables. Benefit: under 10 minutes fr Caramoor- and wait staff made sure to get us out in time. It was just a fabulous meal!

We went for a special anniversary dinner and were not disappointed. The food, service and ambience met our expectations. We hope to return soon. Our only "complaint" is that the tables are very close together making a private conversation almost impossible.
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
A top destination
In the last year this restaurant has become truly worthy of the hype generated by Richard Gere's ownership. The food was first rate and imaginative. We liked the way the menu was laid out with just enough choices. The services was attentative but not overwhelming. We especially appreciated their willingness to meet special needs.
8/7/2013 5:00:00 PM
Special Spot in Northern Westcheste
Delicious food. Appetizers more interesting than main courses. Next time I'll get a couple appetizers and maybe a pasta.
Dessert a bit disappointing.
Sides were listed first, instead of at the end of the menu, causing a bit of confusion.
Very attentive, but not intrusive staff.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Choose Wisely For Excellence...
The venue is beautiful and the service is gracious. The wine list has many solid choices under $100. On the whole, the food is very good. The antipasta was excellent. The pasta entrees were excellent, as were the desserts (the donuts are amazing). The veal loin special was lukewarm (maybe it should have been), and more of an acquired taste. The pork chop was not memorable, bu the cornish hen was fantastic. The prawn carpaccio appetizer was conceptually interesting, but had an iodine after taste. Would definitely return and continue to try different things on the menu.

Good Food....Bad Summer Work Force
We had a server who is obviously there for summer temporarily...surprised how she was hired for the Farmhouse...maybe just her worst night but we had to experience it.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Atmosphere, atmosphere, atmosphere!
Excellent restaurant for a special occasion. Atmosphere in both the inside bar and outside dining area is exceptional.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
A Perfect Find
We chose this restaurant for our second date, after having met for lunch the week before. We couldn't have made a better choice. I'd ordered flowers to be delivered for our table. They'd been placed perfectly, and we were given a romantic corner table that enabled us to sit next to each other and have a very quiet conversation. The hostess was cordial and accommodating. Our waiter was polite, attentive, knowledgeable, and very personable. And every person who came to serve us anything was informative, charming, and smiling. We couldn't have felt more welcome or comfortable.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
A wonderful Occasion
We dined at The Farmhouse inside Bedford Post Inn for our 15th wedding anniversary and my birthday . We arrived late due to traffic and had most of the space to our selves. The staff was incredible and so attentive to our needs and our privacy. They spoiled us with an anniversary cake and birthday cake for me. The food was very fresh and honest. The setting is lovely and so peaceful. It was quite a perfect occasion!!!
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
We chose this restaurant for our anniversary dinner. We wanted someplace special. It exceeded our expectations for a lovely evening. Wait staff was pleasant & efficient. Food was top drawer - especially the house pasta. The Assistant manager came around to see how everything was , my husband mentioned it was our anniversary. She returned to our table at the end of our meal with champagne & chocolates for us. What a sweet , thoughtful gesture to cap off our meal. We look forward to dining there again !
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfection...Dining at it's best.
From the moment we arrived 'til the last crumb of the pastry chef's miracles we basked in the culinary pleasures the staff and Chef had to offer us.The managers made sure we had everything as requested, and the waiters were just as attentive but not overly obtrusive.It's clear the staff loves their jobs and they made sure we enjoyed our night.The menu was explained proudly and expertly.The food is the star,the staff is the reason it works.OK, lets talk food!The antipasti which was full of meats, grilled veggies, & fruits was special. I could have stopped there but you can' because you MUST have the fagotelli.it's a burst of deliciousness. The pork chop with cherries & the mixed grill were cooked perfectly. The new pastry chef is an artist!

Great Night Out
We went to Bedford Post - The Farmhouse to celebrate a birthday and had a great time. It was out first visit and the host came to the table and walked us through the entire menu and answered all of our questions, without us having to ask. We were excited to find out that dinner was being prepared on an outside grill. The wait staff was attentive without being intrusive and a complimentary dessert and sparking dessert wine arrived at our table when they asked is we were there for a special occasion. It was a wonderful night and we are excited about going back during the day, so we can take in the magnificent grounds. I'd highly recommend a trip to Bedford Post - The Farmhouse.

One of the top restaurants in Westchester. Try the Ceviche appetizer.

We had the perfect evening
We had the perfect evening last Saturday. We sat in the very romantic back courtyard with the beautiful fall foliage surrounding us. The servers provided heating lamps and blankets as the evening became cooler - making it even more cozy. We did the tasting menu which was absolutely wonderful and there was plenty of food. An absolutely wonderful experience.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything was very high end and full of class.
We enjoyed it very much.
The food was outstanding.
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Although it is a bit pricey it really was a very special place. The staff was outstanding and there little touches made it a very special evening.

Amazing tasting menu!
We did the tasting menu and every single item was interesting and delicious! Also we were completely satisfied, not left hungry like other tasting menus have left us in the past. We loved all the fresh garden items. The brussel sprouts were amazing as was the cod and the chimichurri steak. Great wine list too. Very enjoyable!
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I went for his birthday dinner, and he still can't stop talking about it! We chose the tasting menu; a seven-course meal that I think is perfect for first-timers. We started with two "snacks": a beet tartar and a pumpkin purée. Then we were served our courses: antipasti platter, ceviche mixto, a brussel sprout salad, a pasta dish that I can only explain as being like the Italian version of Chinese soup dumplings - little pockets of pasta filled with pecorino that burst in your mouth, covered in truffles - and then the branzino, which was perfectly done (except for the few bones we found), and the porchetta, which I can only describe as divine. All of that was topped off with several sweets in perfect portions. Heaven.

I had a gift certificate from
I had a gift certificate from last Christmas and finally found the time to get down to the Post.
Great spot for a quiet dinner or to celebrate a special occasion. A bit on the expensive side so not where I would go on a regular basis even if I lived closer. I thought the menu was limited but our choices were quite good. The taste, portion size and presentaion of the porchetta was A+. House salad exceptional, nice, light dressing on an assortment of unusual greens. Brussel sprouts on the dry side. Nice wine list.
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wish I had picked the fish...
The salad was GREAT!!! Did not care for the rabbit. The brussel sprouts were below average and the potatoes were just fair. We would definitely come back for a second pass however.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Tiny portions for the price
Cost $100 ea. for 1 drink ea. plus desert. Food is above average but the portions are tiny. Expected more for the price. I left hungry. Service was excellent.
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
better than ever
the bedford post just gets better. had a spectacular meal, with great service. they were also very responsive to my request (via OT) to be seated in a corner (easier to hear each other if the restaurant is noisy!). and you cdnt' ask for a more beautiful setting, or a more congenial dining room.
in spite of its relative priciness, this is our go-to restaurant for any and all occasions--or even casual meals. they honor local purveyors, cook the food imaginatively and well, and mk the experience worth its cost--from a fast bkfast to a long, elaborate dinner.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
Food was amazing. Portions
Food was amazing. Portions sensible, not too large. Inventive, delicious desserts, worth the indulgence. Service attentive. If dining after dark, I recommend asking for a table in main part of dining room near fireplace. We were seated by the front windows, which I'm sure afford a lovely view in daylight. But dining at night, this particular space feels more like a busy walkway. I would definitely go back. Very special place for celebrations. Also family friendly, which added to restaurant's congenial atmosphere.

FANTASTIC DINING EXPERIENCE
Last evening we had am amazing dining experience. The chef menu was amazing, a wide variety of foods that enabled us to experience the skillful and inventive matching of unique flavors with farm fresh ingredients. This 10 course meal was served with enthusiasm and charm by the talented wait staff. The meal was perfectly paced and the servers attentiveness during the 3 hours we were there was perfect. They were there when we needed them but unobtrusive when we didn't, and they were so patient explaining every course to us. We were surround by other devoted Farmhouse diners and their excitement was contagious. Kudos to management. We will be back.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent Food Service and Ambience
My kudos to the Staff and Chef for an excellent dining experience. This was one of the best food experiences. From the moment we walked in the door to the moment we left the service was personal, and first rate. John Boy Chicken was out of this world as well as the Pasta appetizer. Dessert was a great topping to an excellent meal. We cannot wait to return for another great dining experience.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great ambiance+ food, bad service
I was so excited to go to Bedford Post. The setting is amazing, indoors and out. Valet service was very attentive. The food was incredible, cocktails and wine list top-notch.
Our experience was a bit ruined by the bad service. It took our waitress 20m to get us our first drink and food and additional drinks took a while after that. There was NO sense of urgency NO sense of trying to please - she was lame and uninterested. Really a shame, because the rest of the experience was great.
P.S. I never write reviews but felt the service was SO bad, I had to say it.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food and atmosphere are outstanding! However, you're paying for it. Not cheap, but worth it once in a while for special occasions. Best minestrone ever!
