Service was poor. I think the waitress was covering tables in another room and so seemed less Attentive than we expected. We were disappointed that there was No ability to order off of the tavern menu. The couple sitting right behind us were using foul language which was quite uncomfortable. the meal was overall a disappointment.

Enjoyed the restaurant and our attentive server. Ambiance is warm, comfortable and inviting. Menu was revamped three days before our arrival. We were a little disappointed that some of the items recommended were no longer available such as the aged sirloin, poached pair salad or horseradish mashed potatoes. We started with the crab cakes which were good overall. My husband had the rib eye steak which was delicious but it came with fingerling potatoes which you can get on almost any menu. I had the lamb which was wonderful. It was accompanied by potato gnocchi which was fabulous but I think the kale didn't go well with the dish. I had the BVI Cabernet which was very nice. The dessert was chocolate and white chocolate moose over a sponge cake served in a bag made of chocolate with fresh berries over the top; I would highly recommend it. Our server was very sweet and attentive and you could tell she was trying to give us the best service possible. Overall, we had a nice experience and enjoyed our dinner.

Anniversary dinner...live in Bedford and ironically don’t take full advantage of the BVI. Dinner upstairs in the Overlook room. Marlena was our server and was responsive, polite and knowledgeable. Food was fantastic- from the poached pear salad to the duck and desert. After dinner stopped in at “Corked” upstairs and finished with a Glenlivet 15.

We more frequently visit the attached BVI Tavern, which is also excellent. However, it is important to remind ourselves about the excellent and creative cuisine offered in the main dining room. The mushroom soup was fabulous...rich and creamy. Other notables included the pork chops and the scallops.

We were warmly greeted for our special occasion. On the surface, the dinner was to celebrate my fiancee's birthday. Much to her surprise, we also were also about to celebrate our engagement!!!
The room was a small dining room with lighted fireplace. Very romantic. The dinners, selected from the "Restaurant Week" choices, were delicious, with excellent service and attention to detail by Ryan. We were also allowed to linger during the evening, given all that celebration!

I've been going to BVI for over 15 years and I've never been disappointed. It's expensive but worth it for a special occasion. One thing I would like to see is at least 2 vegetarian options as this would open things up a bit for more flexibility in who I invite to come with me.

Sat in the main dinning room for dinner. First time and we were not disappointed, It was comfortable and cozy. The wait staff was very good and our waitress always had a smile on her, as well as, attended all our needs. To me the wait staff is just as important as the food, which was very good too. I am a big dessert person and we were celebrating a Birthday, but was a little disappointed with the dessert selection; your website showed more than was available to us that night. Thank you, we did enjoy ourselves and would go back again.

My wife and I ate here for the first time. We were really impressed and happy we did. We were seated in the overlook room. It was the most charming and elegant room. It was also very quiet which made for nice conversation. We loved the woodwork and the paintings. The staff were attentive, well dressed and carried themselves in the most professional way. They really cemented the feel of eating at a fine establishment. If we left the table for only a moment to look around or visit the restroom, our napkins were refolded when we returned. A nice touch.

We started by sharing the Crispy Crab Cakes app. It was brought on two separate plates with one cake on each with all the trimmings on each plate rather than one shared plate. Another nice touch.

I had the Long Island Duck Breast. It was cooked to perfection and very tasty. I asked the server for a Cabernet Sauvignon recommendation and she recommended the Imagery (Calif). It was a very good wine and went well with the Duck.

For desert, I had the Chocolate Pumpkin Torte. It was a chocoholic's dream and a generous desert portion to boot. My wife had the White Chocolate Croissant Bread Pudding with the same experience.

The whole evening was just perfect. We look forward to coming back again.

Service was great. Our server took the time to make sure every element of our dinner was as perfect as possible. They made our dessert request; which made our night extra special.

We felt terrible for the server on the next table over. This crazy person was impossible to please. The management clearly did everything in their power to please but this person was impossible.

The Bedford Village Inn Remains the best restaurant in the area and if anything the food has gotten better recently. The service is always professional and what you would expect but it is the food and drinks that always leave me wanting to come back. Where else can you get the best steak money can buy cooked perfectly with a glass of Caymus?!

Wonderful last minute dinner in the Dining Room with an old friend! Our server was very knowledgeable of the menu and wine list and was attentive throughout our meal without being invasive or pushy. The food was excellent, very reasonable prices and the dessert delightful (I usually skip dessert, but never at the BVI!!)

I really love the ambiance at BVI and, of course, the food. I just took my father for his birthday--it was his first time at BVI. We got a fantastic cheese sampler, but our meals were just good, not great; the meals were not what I usually expect and certainly not what I'd expect for the price. Our server was very attentive and very pleasant and was a highlight of the meal. The one thing I wanted to point out above all is that the young staff at the host/hostess stand really needs to watch their language and professionalism while on the job. It was disappointing to have my father, during his first BVI experience, be subjected to loud discussion that included profanities during his dessert. I watched as the server tried to tell the lobby staff twice to be quiet, but to no avail. We would come back, but would probably be asked to be seated in a different dining room and would probably speak up if the food wasn't to our liking, as the table next to us did. It is our fault for not speaking up about some of the food issues we experienced (i.e., dry salad lacking dressing).

The atmosphere at BVI is amazing- that’s the best part really! Service was well paced and our server was friendly and attentive!
We always find the food and drinks to be overpriced for what you get so we knew that going in. The martinis are tiny, the wine pours are small and pricey, and the food is good but not worth the charge. For instance, my husband had the fois gras for an app- it was $18 and was hilariously small. The Caesar salad was excellent. We would not recommend the chicken dish- the chicken was pretty dry and unadorned. The veggie risotto was good.
You are definitely paying for the place and not the food.

We had a wonderful 95th birthday celebration for my dad in the private back dining room at the BVI! This is our "go to" restaurant for special occasions but we also head to the BVI Tavern for a quick and delicious week-night dinner and we love eating on the patio in the summer.

I was very disappointed. The service was wonderful. We were seated in a corner with our backs to a stone wall and it was uncomfortably cold. I had the shrimp and scallop dish and was unsatisfied. The shrimp were tough and tasteless like they had been reheated from New year’s Eve. The broccolini was also tough and cold. My husband like this chicken dish but stated it tasted like it was seasoned with Lawrys season salt. I expected more from this 4 star restaurant. We will stay closer to home for special occasions (my birthday) where we will be better satisfied. The decor was lovely.

80th Birthday celebration. Reserved table for 7. When we arrived they had confetti and a birthday card from the staff on the table. Appetizers included oysters on the half shell, mushroom bisque, clam chowder and 3 different salads. All were great especially the bisque and chowder. Only critique was that the mesclun salad was served without dressing which was quickly resolved. Entrees included Scottish Salmon, Porter House steak, Scallop/Shrimp/Mussels and Roasted Chicken. All were excellent. Wait staff was extremely attentive. Ambiance was perfect especially for a cold holiday weekend night. We drove 2 hours from the South Shore of Massachusetts to take my mother out for her big birthday and we will certainly return to the Bedford Village Inn again.
