Our favorite restaurant in the DC area. Well worth the hour and a half drive. Best food in best setting we've ever encountered. Annually, we spend my wife's birthday celebrating at the Bartlett Pear
The food is wonderful and service is very friendly and attentive. Relaxing and quiet atmosphere.
Fabulous food, excellent service, and a wonderful atmosphere.
The Bartlett Pear Inn offers first class service, outstanding cuisine, an extensive wine list and a unique dining experience. From the starters to the dessert everything was perfect. The service is impeccable...no hovering, no yanking dinner plates away with the first sight of a fork on the side of the plate. The staff is friendly and polite and professional It was my birthday and the chef made me a chocolate souffle witha candle as a special treat. I highly recommend this special restaurant for fine dining.
A lovely restaurant in an historic inn in Easton. We stayed at the Inn and made a weekend of it. There are two dinner options - 'river' and 'creek' which are a 3 course a la carte menu or a 5 course tasting menu. We enjoyed the butternut soup. The truffle papadelle was amazing and also the duck breast was excellent. Service is friendly. Wine service could be more informative. Brunch the next day was also fantastic - great choices & hearty sizes!
We so enjoyed our dinner and hearing the little story about how it got its name etc. We would say it is Beyond COMPEAR ! Thank you again Nancy and Dave Park
My husband had the river tasting with wine pairing and I had the creek. The wines were great and many from small productions and nicely accompanied the food. We would recommend this option. I would have paced the dishes a bit differently when one person has the 3-course and the other the 5-course. For example, I would have preferred my main (risotto) when he had his third dish (pappardelle), but the food was really wonderful. The pappardelle was a amazing and the duck was excellent. The cheese plate and lemon pie were a perfect ending.
Well worth a trip to Easton, Maryland! The Bartlett Pear Inn once again surpassed themselves. Food and service were both exceptional. We'll keep coming back every chance we get.
The Bartlett Pear Inn is a small inn and restaurant located on a beautiful shaded street in downtown Easton, MD. The original building is mid 19th century and is very well maintained. The grounds are nicely planted and well kept. We arrived early for our reservation and were standing on the front porch admiring the property when the door was opened and we were greeted by a very gracious young lady who immediately invited us in even before we told her we had a reservation. It turned out that she was the hostess. What a great first impression. The interior is very tastefully done an a simple but elegant decor. There are two dining rooms both of which are equally appealing. The ceilings are very high, about 12 feet or so, and the noise level is very low. Our table was nicely appointed with a white table cloth and a small vase of flowers. The service was impeccable and everyone on the staff was extremely pleasant and knowledgeable about all the dishes and how they are prepared. The menu changes frequently and is very nice. They offer 2 fixed price options, a 3 course or a 5 course. We had the 3 course dinner offering. You get to choose one of three appetizers, main courses, and deserts. All of their produce products are grown locally and the meats and seafood all come from local sources. They like to say "Dirt to table the same day." That must be true because the freshness was really noticeable. The food was outstanding - one of the best restaurant meals we have had in a long time. It was a great place for our 52nd anniversary dinner. We highly recommend the Bartlett Pear Inn for a wonderful and relaxing dinner in a beautiful setting.
Overall an outstanding experience for our anniversary. The food was amazing as was the wine pairing. The room was lacking some ambiance. Maybe some background music would help. A bit surprised the bar area was converted to tables for dining only.
Good for a very special occasion. They will accommodate you I'f you do not want to do the three or five course menu. Desserts were excellent.
Fortunately an excellent waitress salvaged an otherwise disappointing experience. We had a reservation for 8:15 but we're asked to remain outside for 20 minutes on the hottest day of the year (they do not have a bar or seating area). Usually a great time but not this trip.
The food was truly outstanding!! Corn and crab chowder, pork belly, pan roasted striped bass, duck, an amazing raspberry lemon-basil sorbet, on and on. Pricey but worth it. Food to be appreciated!!
Our evening was marred by the restaurant being far too warm for a comfortable dinner. It would 've been very nice had the temperature been comfortable. A better rating would've been given.
Very nice and cozy place located in a old Victorian house in Easton.
This lovely, updated 18th century inn boasts two serene dining spaces punctuated with modern graphic art. the lighting is romantic but you can easily read the menu and see the food. Each dish as part of a three-course tasting menu was beautifully conceived. The corn chowder with a crab cake was outstanding as was the bread and we both noticed the charming pear-shaped butter was decorated with a small lemon balm leaf and flavored salt to mimic a bartlett pear's speckled shadings . (The next day we purchased the soup, sans crab cake, and bread at the Bartlett Pear Bakery and enjoyed it all over again.) The market salad included delicious beets and sungold tomatoes which always make me happy. The chef was not pleased with the braised pork so sent out duck instead, yummy, as well as a portion of the pork to taste. The caramelized crunch on the edge the duck fat provided a very nice contrast to the fork tender meat. My husbands risotto was so good, he barely offered me a taste. We ordered a cheese plate and a chocolate pave for dessert. Both were perfect portions to share. The service staff was uneven though well meaning and very nice. We make a point of visiting this restaurant when we visit Easton.
We go once a year. Always wonderful dinners. Several daily specials always fresh with primarily local ingredients. This year they moved to 3, 5 and 7 course prixe fixed dinners. Not my favorite as choices are limited but each choice was excellent so no real complaints. Relaxed service and no tipping policy-gratuity included in bill. Makes life easier.
The tasting menu is fabulous. Ingredients, preparation and presentation exquisite. The attention Chef Jordan gives to his cooking is only surpassed by the attention he gives his diners. A great dining experience! Highly recommend!
Attention to detail, exquisite ingredients, and interesting combinations always result in a most enjoyable experience. We have never been disappointed. Our absolute favorite is the table prepared Dover Sole with lemon butter caper sauce which we were able to have on this latest visit. Very highly recommended.
This is truly a "dirt to table" experience, everything on the menu includes where it came from. Looking forward to going back to enjoy many other items on the menu!
