We were there for our anniversary. We were hoping for the soft shell crab and we were informed they it was not available because of renovations being done the next day - not sure what that had to do with it.
It was a special occasion and we were expecting the heafty price tag, but the meals were only "pretty good". I can't even say "good".
Way too much waking back and forth from the staff.
Overall, we probably won't be back.
If you're going to charge Boston prices, you need to step up and serve Boston food!

We were greeted by the hostess and seated immediately which is great. The Waitperson, Jessica was polite and knowledgeable about the menu. I rarely have questions and she was able to immediately explain the portion of one of the entrees that I had a question about.
The service was paced exceedingly well, we never felt rushed. The food was fabulous!

This was a special dinner for my daughter's special birthday. It was perfect. Our server was more than perfect - her personality, her perfection, her friendliness. It was a wonderful evening. The only thing we had some difficulty was that we could not bring our chairs right up to the table because of the round leg supporting it. This threw our posture off somewhat. Other than that, no suggestions. Thank you.

The food was incredibly bland. Lamb chops were under seasoned and had no char from grilling. The fish that my wife order was over cooked and under seasoned. It had been a while since I’d eaten in the BVI dining room, and I was looking forward to it. Until there is some indication that the food is a lot better, I’ll be sticking with burgers in the BVI tavern.

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.

We have been here several times for weddings , business dinners and twice for anniversary. Every time we have found the service great and the staff friendly. Prices were reasonable for the food and overall very good. Food selection has always been interesting , and might be tweaked a little. We look forward to our next event or special occasion.

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.

Michele our waitress and the serving staff were excellent and very attentive to our needs and requests through the birthday evening. The food was also a delight and desserts were abundant. Will definitely make Bedford Inn a regular stop for great food and socializing.

Ice Bar event outside was pretty cool too, although we didn't have tickets for that.

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?!
