The 1796 Room has a very beautiful atmosphere, it is cozy and romantic but as more tables filled up it got rather loud and started losing appeal. Then, as the food started to arrive, all being very nicely presented and some of which was outstanding, things took a turn. While my dates steak was prepared perfectly and proved to be delicious, mine was very overcooked and very tough. Lacking complete flavor. Had it not been such a special occasion that i didn't want to risk ruining, would have definately sent it back. And while having a very professional waitress who also had an assistant, never once was i asked if my steak was properly prepared. Overall, for a $225.00 dinner for two, i was disappointed very much. However, we had a great eavning and enjoyed strolling through and taking in the scenery of the very beautiful hotel. Just disappointed in some of the food.

 (Washington DC)·Dined on January 5, 2018

We were staying at the Omni Bedford Springs for our mini-moon and booked 1796 as our fancy dinner the second night of our stay. The setting is cozy - it is a small dining room that occupies the oldest part of the resort from the early 1800s where the old Stone Inn used to stand. The doorways into the restaurant are charmingly uneven to match the original structure's quirks. We were sat at a romantic booth where both parties are seated on the same side of the table in a huge sofa with high back. It was perfect. Our server, Lisa, was extremely warm and congratulatory regarding our recent marriage. She was also super knowledgeable and helped us pick the best meals for us. We got the lobster mac and cheese and scallops along with the filet mignon. Everything was delicious. We finished our meal with port and through Lisa, ordered an off-the-menu dessert of donut holes to go (they are on the Frontier Tavern's menu, but 1796 made it work!). This was a lovely, romantic, cozy winter celebration meal and 1796 gets the highest marks from us across the board!

Kelli, our server, left a lot to be desired. It took awhile for us to be greeted, and each round of food took a significant amount of time. We were seated for 70 minutes by the time we received our entrées (awkwardly with our salad and bread plates still on the table, so nowhere to put the entrée plates). My husband ordered the Ribeye medium rare, and it was medium. I ordered my filet medium and it was extremely purple upon arrival. I cut into it with Kelli there and asked her to take it back. She asked me how long I thought it needed. I told her that I was unsure, just to bring it back as medium. I found it a bit ridiculous that she was asking me how to cook my steak! The manager delivered my filet and had me cut into it. Again it was rarer than I would have liked, but I was starving at this point, and just ate around the center. I ordered the Botanical Martini, which I had the night before at the Crystal Room and loved. She brought out the Botanist Gimlet. I was already unhappy with our service and meal, so I didn't mention anything... It was extremely bitter, and I just didn't drink it. We were staying at the resort celebrating our three year wedding anniversary, and had heard wonderful things. We were extremely disappointed, and left with a bad taste in our mouth (literally and figuratively).

The filet was perfectly done, but it was too salty and so were the side vegetables. The deserts are not worth the calories.

We ate dinner here on a Friday night during our stay at the Omni Bedford Springs. The setting is historic and cozy, the service was outstanding, and the food was fresh and well-prepared. We ordered New York strip, bone-in ribeye, creamed spinach, sauteed mushrooms, baked potato, and a bottle of Jordan cab. Steaks were tender, juicy, and perfectly cooked. Overall, a thoroughly enjoyable dinner.

Exceptional venue and the menu was amazing. I had the bone in ribeye and it was hands down one of the best I have enjoyed - rivals best across angus and Kobe offerings! Next time I will make plans for earlier seating- I now understand why the “1796” is so busy...

My wife and I stayed at Bedford Springs for a quick get away and we made a late reservation at the 1796 Room as the restaurant was booked solid for a November Saturday night. We now know why it was booked solid until 8:45! Our steaks were fantastic. She had the Filet, I had the Strip and they were as good as any steak that we have had for a while. Sides were the sautéed mushrooms and the creamed spinach and they did not disappoint. The butter for the bread was also uniquely interesting and my wife loved it. Wine list is acceptable, I think you can do BYOB but I didn't confirm that. The chopped salad was so-so, but it was only a salad. This place is highly recommended!

This was our second time at the 1796 Room. The service and food were excellent again. Unfortunately, they seated a very large group in the room and the entire room became uncomfortably loud and lost its intimacy. This was a timing issue I guess, as others we talked to said they had a quiet time the day before. We will return, and I do recommend this to others.

A really lovely experience. First time at Omni Bedford Springs and we loved the historic aspects of the inn and restoration that kept things as they would have been during the resort's heyday. The meal we had at 1796 was delicious - highly recommend the scallop appetizer and steak for entree. Our server, Lisa, was attentive and friendly. We definitely will visit again.

The place is very nice, homey and comfortable. Their bread is very tasty and the steaks are very good. Good portion of the sides, but they come separately from the main course. The only thing I didn’t like is tuna tartare, it’s was very bland with no flavor.

We had dinner here to celebrate getting married and it was quite disappointing. We have been here many times in the last 8 years and it has always been good before. The tuna didn't have much flavor until we request soy sauce. The wedge salad was average and could have had more crumbles and dressing. The chicken is usually awesome but this time was very dry. The steak and mushrooms were good though. In addition, we ended up at a table right near the air conditioner so we froze our butts off! Not quite the experience we were hoping for this visit.

Food is EXCELLENT MUAH 👌, although overpriced, as starter soups/salads and sides come al la carte. But I guess it comes with the territory/Omni hotel. Nothing with Omni in front of it is ever reasonable. Food is definitely worth making the annual trip, but that's the extent of it. The ambience is great, atmosphere is cozy as well. Would highly recommend for a "special" occasion.
