1796 Room at Bedford Springs Ratings and Reviews
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.
Nice experience. Server was efficient and very pleasant. We ordered a NY strip and bone in ribeye. Both were cooked perfectly and very good. Nice choice of sides to accompany. Atmosphere could be improved, a bit noisy. Somewhat plain and "rustic". Nonetheless would definitely recommend.
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.
Our steaks were cooked perfectly and the service was impeccable. The salads were delicious and the vegetables were cooked perfectly. All in all a good value for the money. Only issue was it was a little chilly in the restaurant and I'm not one that is normally cold. The noise level is a little loud but wasn't a problem for us.
Lisa, our server, was excellent! She was very friendly, professional, and attentive to our needs. We were pleasantly surprised with an optional menu of paired tastings of 4 courses. That is a wonderful combination of items not seen on the regular menu. We selected each pair of items (except for the Oysters Rockefeller appetizer) so that we could share the tastings. Everything was delicious! We normally wouldn't have selected the meat, cheese, bread appetizer (if it is on the regular menu), but we really enjoyed all the little extra surprises on the plate like fresh honey, pickled peppers, and raisins. We enjoyed all the flavors in the 2 salads like goat cheese which we had never tasted. Our entrees were scrumptious! The beef was so tender and juicy and had a very nice flavor. My shrimp and scallops over rice were also scrumptious. We, of course, shared our entrees. My favorite dessert is creme brule which I was happy to see was one of the desserts on this "tasting menu." My husband got the layered cake which had a mocha sauce over it. We tasted each others' desserts and enjoyed them so much. We came away from the table quite full but very happy with the over-all experience. We hope you continue to offer this tasting menu or a similar one the next time we dine with you. Yes, we shall return!
Food and service was excellent. Noise level was totally unacceptable. The large party tables, which tend to be louder, are mixed in with the 2-tops, where couples are more likely to want quiet conversation. Need to find a way to separate the two, preferably in different rooms, where the parties can try and yell over one another, while couples can enjoy a more quiet, peaceful atmosphere.
Made reservations for our 10th wedding anniversary. The food and wait staff were good for a restaurant at this price range but unfortunately our entire dinner was interrupted by repeated phone calls by a single diner at neighboring table. As other people have reviewed there is very little to absorb noise let alone someone yelling in to a cell phone. The entire restaurant was disturbed and complaining but the staff and manager did nothing to address the issue with the offending guest.
We love to vacation at Bedford Springs. This is the first time we ate at 1796 restaurant. The filet mignon was excellent, cooked perfectly and the chimichura sauce added a nice acid flavor. I had not used this on steak in the past. The service was great. The drinks were great. My only comment is the bourbon carrots needed more bourbon flavor. I think a little honey, bourbon, sriracha and cumin reduction would've added more flavor to the carrots. Otherwise it was terrific.
Staff was pleasant and professional, but for a fine dining establishment, I expected more. The food was underwhelming. We ordered the mushroom soup, which was lacking in flavor (bland) and sent back. We also ordered a salad, which was fine. My wife had the crabcakes, and I had the bone-in ribeye steak. The crabcakes were fine. The steak was cooked to temperature, but lacked seasoning (again bland). I actually asked for cracked pepper and had to add salt for flavoring. I've never had to do that to a prime steak before. Additionally, I ordered the "spring water" instead of the filtered tap water thinking it was from one of the natural springs. Instead I received an imported bottle from Italy. It was fine, just not what was expected. I also thought the server would have mentioned that they didn't carry their own. On the plus side, the wine and spirits selections were vast and appreciated. Sadly, though, I would have rather eaten at the Frontier Tavern on site as opposed to the 1796. We have plans to return to the resort next month, but next time we stay, I don't think we'll be back to the 1796.
This was the 4th time we visited the 1796 Room at Bedford Springs for dinner. The food is good. The noise level is a bit loud, it depends on how busy it is, but even at 9:00pm it is still bustling, definitely not cozy and quiet. You can also order from 1796 Room menu on the hotel room service menu which I would highly recommend if you would prefer a romantic dinner at the hotel and you are staying overnight.
