Family side dishes were not actually family size. Based on the restaurants high end profile out waitress’ attitude was poor and unfriendly and affected the enjoyment of our Dining experience. The food however was excellent.
Very nice experience, a wonderful place to have a quiet enjoyable dinner.
The cream of wild mushroom soup was excellent. My N.Y. Strip steak was medium when I asked for medium rare and it was dry and without much flavor. The sides were big enough to split even the baked potato. Salmon was good. I have had much better meals for the same price elsewhere.
Michael was our waiter. He was fantastic. It was our 25th wedding anniversary and he surprised us with a dessert that said "Happy Anniversary" on it. The food was amazing, the ambience was incredible and the service was outstanding. Will definitely be back. A totally spectacular experience, which completed our incredible stay at Bedford Springs.
It was nice. I thought it was going to be a bit more fancy and so did the many other people that were dressed up. It was a nice place but it was about the same as the other restaurants on premises.
Over priced and limited menu. Pork chops came out rare
love the food, love the restaurant but was seated in the room with the old fireplace next to very loud group. couldn't hear due to acoustics of that room.
The food and service and wine were lovely. Already planning next visit
Overall experience was very good. Food options were varied and the kitchen was able to accommodate our food allergies. Bread was freshly baked, warm and delicious. Meals arrived hot and as requested. Wait staff was very attentive, while not being overbearing. Only negative- if I can call it that- was there was a large party that was very audible and made it difficult to speak and took away somewhat from the ambiance of the restaurant and the dining experience. I realize there was nothing the restaurant staff could have done- other than 'shhh' a table of grown men.
Service was excellent. Food was delicious. My daughter and I are not big eaters so we ordered an appetizer each, shared a salad and ordered 2 sides. We had plenty of food. We have dined at 1796 in the past and everything was exactly the way we expected it to be (i.e. the food, service and hospitality).
Our server Lisa was wonderful and our steaks were perfect. We had a very enjoyable evening.
Always love dining here. The ambiance is warm and inviting. The last two times we have visited the food has been off...steak last time and pork chop this time. I wish the consistency in quality was what it used to be.
Excellent food and service in a quaint atmosphere.
Portions great for sharing.
Great restaurant. Haven’t been back to Bedford Springs and 1796 still doesn’t disappoint.
The food was just so so and very pricey. The entrees include nothing. A very ordinary salad was 11 dollars extra and a baked potato that was only Luke warm was an additional 6 dollars. Dinner for two with no drinks was 128 dollars before tip. I think the pricing is outrageous for the quality
We've been trying to get into 1796 for a while now and our schedules never really meshed. My wife surprised me withe reservation on Saturday and we love Bedford Springs anyway, so why not head that direction! Arrived a bit early and had a comfy seat in the Frontier Tavern, which is directly in front of 1796. Small but great beer selection featuring a lot of regional crafts... some of my favorites. My darling wife had a "Princess Mojito" She very picky when it comes to mixed drinks so I was impressed when she loved it! Housemade potato chips for a pre-dinner snack.. Don't mind if I do! reservation was ready so we headed into the restaurant. Very quiet and quaint. Several tables have "booth style" seating where my wife and I could sit side by side while dining... Very nice touch. The blackened scallops for an appetizer were stellar. Not overdone or over blackened. Very nice. Caesar salad was the weak point of dinner. I LOVE caesar salads and this was just a bit below par for me. Dry and overly cheesy. Still tolerable though. Dinner was amazing. I had a 12oz filet with chimichurri sauce. Done perfectly with a little char. Temp was perfect. I like mine somewhere between medium rare and medium.. they got it right first time. Salt crusted baked potato was a perfect combination for the steak. Strangely, the highlight for me was the bourbon baby carrots. I'm a carnivore by nature and vegetables rarely cross my mind but these things were amazing! My wife was surprised that I kept reaching for them instead of my steak. I even surprised myself! Michelle our server was wonderfully attentive without being intrusive. Prices were a bit higher than most for the area but when the food is this good who cares! If you have the time and love a beautiful setting, make it a point to get here!
Always done right! Meat cooked to my specifications, and the wedge salad, omg so good!
The oscar style filet was best I've ever eaten, highly recommend! Pricey, but well worth it on quality.
The entire experience was excellent from start to finish!
The steak never disappoints. And the family style sides are delicious. My boyfriend and I make it a priority to visit when we are in the area.
Excellent food and excellent service.
Wonderful and amazing ambiance and food. Kudos to the chef for especially preparing French green beans for my husband. I had the smoked pork chop....best I have ever had. My husband had the NY strip Oscar style....cooked perfectly. My kids were equally happy with hot dogs on one night and mini sliders on another night.
My husband and I also had the salmon and the shrimp scampi (minus the fennel finish). Delicious.
Terrific crab cakes and duck even though it is known for its steaks. Salad portions were large as well as the lemon sorbet and ice cream for dessert. Don’t miss this restaraunt if you are at Bedford Springs.
Very good meal
We had a phenomenal evening at 1796 - the service was awesome and the food was perfect. Will definitely return on our next visit to Bedford!
Birthday dinner. Had to omit 4 of the 5 seafood options ok the starter menu.
The experience was excellent along with the food and the service! The atmosphere was romantic and cozy and we thoroughly enjoyed the history of the room.
Love this restaurant. We love the steak and the house steak sauce! Everything is always delicious!
Overrated for ambiance, food, and the noise level was atrocious! Food way too pricey for the quality—nothing special! We were expecting a very upscale dining experience comparable to the quality of Bedford Springs, especially as repeat guests of the Inn and spa. Glorified tavern...so disappointing!
Nothing special for the price. Limited choices in the area
Lisa was our server and she was phenomenal! Very attentive, great food and wine recommendations, plus helped me order around my food allergies.
Good food and service. Authentic historic location.
Overpriced steak that was not cooked properly. Ambiance and lighting could be better. This restaurant would not be able to charge what they do if they weren’t in the Omni.
Service was way off the mark. When we asked where our waiter was, the head of staff came to our table, apologized and offered a complimentary appetizer. The fine food, served hot and exactly as ordered helped make up for the service snafu.
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!
Have been here several times and have yet to be disappointed. It's not cheap but it's always a fantastic experience. The food and service are always great. Only place we dine when at the Bedford springs.
We love dining at the 1796. Unfortunately, this time the steaks were not up to their normal delicious standard. It seems they were having some training issues. The manager handled our concerns but it was not the experience we had hoped for.
Known for steaks, but seafood offerings and specials were equally well prepared and delicious.
Excellent! Michelle is a great server! We always look forward to seeing her! Try the pork chops, awesome!!
