Bedford Village Inn Ratings and Reviews
I came to the Bedford Village Inn for a celebration dinner. They exceeded my expectations. There was a congratulations card from the staff and some ribbons on the table prior to our arrival. I asked to have a bottle of champagne delivered when I made the reservation and as soon as we were sat the bottle was brought to us which was perfect. We ordered soups and appetizers and were given a complimentary sample dish thanks to the chef. My boyfriend ordered the scallop and shrimp dish which was surprisingly a huge portion and I ordered the duck and it was cooked perfectly. The food was absolutely delicious! Our server, Fouad, was outstanding. We loved him! Would definitely recommend him! For dessert we had the chocolate bag and they even added a chocolate plaque that said "congratulations" on it. Great service, great atmosphere, great food!
Going to the Bedford Village Inn is our treat to ourselves every anniversary and it is never disappointing! If you want to be spoiled then this is the place to come. The Christmas decorations make the older part of the building feel even more special than normal. We love the Tavern and Corks but for special occasions it has to be the dining room.
I have always seen the hype for the BVI and thought that it didn't stand a chance of living up to its reputation but it surpassed my expectations. From the moment we were seated next to a cozy fireplace we knew this was going to be something special. Our server was a younger lady that instantly made us feel comfortable and at home. She was always close by and seemed to know what we needed before we did. The food was outstanding and I would recommend the mushroom toast and the dry aged sirloin. My one complaint was that they have such a good range of beer, whiskey and wine that I wanted to try it all. We will be back!
You couldn't ask for a more beautiful environment both inside and out. Just lovely with a lot of attention to detail. The cocktails were delicious as was the caesar salad (crispy and tasty). My husband had duck with farro (an interesting crunchy grain) and cauliflower. He said it was good. I had the special which was Veal Loin with polenta and tri-color carrots. The waiter asked how I'd like it cooked and I told him to leave it to the chef as he/she would know best. The Veal Loin came out dry, chewy, tough, fatty and tasteless!!! The polenta was interesting and the carrots were delicious. I didn't say anything at the time, as I didn't want to ruin what otherwise was a perfect evening to celebrate our anniversary. The meal was pricey, but, had it been at least good, it would have been worth it. I called the next day to let the chef know how disappointed I was. We did get a desert and a square of chocolate with "Happy Anniversary" written on it was included as was a card from BVI. A very nice and personal touch. As I was thinking back, the last few times we've been there, the main course has been "just okay" or "disappointing". Next time we may just go into the pub and enjoy the beautiful ambiance there! Wish they could do something better with the main courses.
Like all the best parts of New Hampshire: BVI delivers on a solid, traditional experience that reminds you why the classics became classics in the first place. The cuisine is on the conservative side (no molecular cooking here) with only the occasional nod to latest trends with offerings like a charcuterie offering on the first page of the menu. But, man, great flavors and care goes into every plate or bowl and, especially, the cocktail.
The only shortfall was the service. Though endearing, our waiter was easily as old as the Inn itself and kept forgetting key parts of the service (to bring appetizers, coffee for the other half the table, the to-go bag). The intimate dining room also afforded us multiple opportunities to watch him dig out the write-up on the days specials which kept escaping his memory (there were two).
All in all, an amazing experience at a very reasonable price. It's the gold standard in the state for a reason.
We found a gift certificate that was 10 years old for the Bedford Village Inn!! I called them to ask if they would honor it and there was no hesitation at all!! My husband and I enjoyed our 23rd anniversary gift 10 years late and it was wonderful! Thank you!
We stayed at the Bedford Inn for a night through our fall color travels and knew we wanted to try the restaurant. We were not disappointed at all. The food and wine was fabulous and we all loved our meals... ribeye steak, swordfish and scallop and shrimp dishes. The atmosphere was beautiful in the front dinning room and because we went on a slow night, we were able to get a tour of the rest of the restaurant that was part of the original homestead... truly, a treat in itself. Highly recommend for any special occasion.
Omer our waiter was knowledgeable and funny. Didn't appreciate the two energetic children near us but that was no fault of the restaurant. The ribeye was worth every penny. Perfectly cooked to M-R. The chocolate bag has to be experienced. A great personalized experience for our 15th anniversary.
We had been to the Inn several times in the past and decided to celebrate a special anniversary here. The restaurant and service were very classy but not pretentious. The courses were spaced nicely. My only complaint would be the fact that the noise level was rather high.
very disappointed. while the presentation was lovely, the food didn't have much flavor. the tomatoes were tasteless, the swordfish was bland. creme brûlée was delicious. waiter was very odd although the service was good. very long wait to get more water - I almost got up to get it myself.
An enchanting venue with an excellent menu. The service was exceptional, especially our waiter, Homer. The salmon was moist and beautifully done and another diner's filet was excellent with a demi glaze that was perfectly seasoned. We are anxious to try the Sunday Brunch, too! The decor was quite tasteful and the ambience was just right for a celebratory dinner with good friends. All in all, a most delightful evening.
It was fun for us to eat in an authentic New England inn and our overall experience at the Bedford Inn was very good. The restaurant seems to strive for low-key Yankee elegance and creative cuisine and, in my opinion, by and large it succeeds, but at a hefty price. The service was outstanding, as was the special "chocolate bag" dessert, enough for two, perhaps 3 people. My wife and I each had a scallop and shrimp entree which was very good, but the margaritas we ordered were small and drowned in ice. We would return for a birthday or anniversary, perhaps, but this is beyond our budget for a Saturday night dinner out.
