1796 Room at Bedford Springs Ratings and Reviews
This was great. Drove two hours for an early dinner reservation through a LOT of snow and terrible roads and it was WORTH IT! Which says a lot. Because it was early, noise level was low, very romantic atmosphere. Steak seemed undercooked but not enough to complain about it! Scallops were perfect, wine was perfect, side dishes were perfect... such a great time! We were there for hours and the server didn’t rush us or anything (after 2hr drive we wanted to take our time!!). Loved it. Plan to make it a yearly tradition!
Appetizer, Tuna Tartar, bland.
Entree, Filet Oscar, ordered medium - got well done.
Dessert, chocolate cake & espresso.
Overall I must say, I was mildly disappointed with dinner. I understand volume was high because because of a conference. But, the wait between courses was long and food execution was subpar. I will be reluctant to eat here again.
Made this reservation for the purpose of proposing to my girlfriend, and the 1796 Room did not disappoint. When I made the reservation I requested a quiet romantic table and tipped off the staff about what I intended to do. We were given a nice corner table where we were seated beside each other on a small loveseat, our server was wonderful, highly attentive, and served as our iPhone photographer. The food was fantastic, my fiancée (she said yes) had the salmon, and I had the New York strip. We will definitely return for special occasions.
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.
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).
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.
