    I have always thought of the BVI as a swanky spot with lovely decor and food. I have had brunch there once before this experience and was suitably impressed. I took my father and two other people there for brunch on Father's Day. The young man who waited on us, while well-intentioned, was not terrific. I thought the food was actually rather distasteful. I would prefer to eat on the pub side...

  • My salmon and sauce was excellent
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 5/10/2008
    My salmon and sauce was excellent and the recommended wine complimented it perfectly. My companion's beef was tough and he could not even finish it. After being seated we were forgotten at our table for about 25 minutes before anyone came to our table. After that the service was fine and the waitress did apologize. The setting was elegant. However, overall, it was not worth the price.

    SIMPLY A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE - MY FAMILY HAS BEEN THERE MANY TIMES BEFORE, AND EACH TIME THE RESTAURANT HAS MORE THAN LIVED UP TO IT'S REPUTATION. THE FACT THAT IT WAS FOR A MOTHER'S DAY OCCASION MADE IT EVEN MORE IMPRESSIVE, BOTH TO ME AND MY PARENTS. GREAT FOOD!!!

    Met for a business meeting. We were allowed to use a hide-out table in the bar, giving us plenty of room and privacy. Lunch is a great deal, as you get most of the expensive evening menu but at lunch prices. Highly recommended.

    The Bedford Village Inn has always been one of our favorite restaurants in New Hampshire. The food, service and ambience are consistently excellent. For example, it is rare to find a hot dessert soufflé on any American restaurant's menu, but the lemon soufflé was so good we came tonight and had it again.

    we like to meet friends there for lunch as a special occasion. they come up from Boston and we go down from Hanover NH. It is a great place to visit with each other - the food and service are excellent and it is quiet enough to enjoy our conversation. It's great for dinner too - we have stayed there on the way to the airport and have again had excellent food and service. It's always attractive.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 4/6/2008
    BVI is a beautiful place, but I feel like it's resting on its laurels, rather than delivering on its promise of a wonderful experience. The food was bland, really basically tasteless, presentation was so-so, and the service was atrocious. We were hosting friends from out of town and it was embarrassing. New Hampshire's finest? Not this time.....

    Poor experience. Hostess was surly. Waitress was friendly but inexperienced and seemed overwhelmed; therefore service was slow. Food was overcooked and bland. A great disappointment, and a rip-off at these prices, We will not be back and we will share this with our friends.

    We had a wonderful dinner at the Bedford Village Inn. The food was Amazing, but the service left something to be desired our server forgot my salad and we didn't recieve our drinks until after our first course! The ambiance was great a nice, quiet, romantic spot, we were there for my fiance's birthday. Food was fantastic, one of the best meals I've had... wish the service had matched.

    Whether a special occasion (like proposing to my wife), nice dinner in one of the firelit dining rooms, or a more casual (but not inexpensive) lunch or dinner in the tavern section, BVI can be counted on for impeccable service and exquisite, classic American food that is often sourced locally. We've never been disappointed.
