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.

Best date I've ever been on. Absolutely magnificent dining experience. My meal was excellent, and the bartender made the most delicious Moscow mule I've ever had. Five star experience from start to finish. The Bedford Village Inn exceeded my expectations and is a place I will highly recommend.

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?!

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.

This is not a restaurant you would do often due to the cost. It is a 'special' occasion restaurant. The wait staff are attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. Food is creative and excellent.

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.

Waitress was great and the food was good. However, the fire alarm went off while we were waiting for our dinner to arrive. Many of the staff just left and we weren't sure what to do. The staff should have advised us whether or not we were to leave. We were finally escorted out to the front door after the manager arrived. The stairs had not been cleaned and it was very icy. The waitress did inform us we would be provided with a free dessert, which was fine. Our bill came to $125.00 and we attempted to pay part of the bill with a $100.00 AMEX gift card. The manager and the waitress returned and advised us the charge could not go through because their system was not set up. I happen to know American Express can be called and the gift card would be cleared. This was not offered. Although the food and service were fine, I doubt we will be returning any time soon. This was a special dinner for our 40th anniversary and the gift card was a gift to use towards the meal. Very disappointed.

It's always a treat going to the Bedford Village Inn. Sometimes we go to the Tavern for the evening. The Wine Bar upstairs is unique to the area, and great for wine lovers because their wine list is quite extensive. On special occasions, or Sunday Brunch, the restaurant is tough to beat.

I really love this restaurant. Our waiter was attentive but not overbearing. I had the mushroom toast and a steak and I cannot say enough about how good the food was. One of my guests changed their mind after ordering and the manager came over to confirm this and checked in to make sure we were all having a good time. Nothing we asked for was too much and this is one restaurant that went above our expectations.

I have been to BVI more than a dozen times and every time, except this one, the experience was stellar. We had cocktails in the Tavern and one person in my party asked about the cheese platter appetizer she'd had in the Tavern previously. The waiter was "sure" they did not have it. He returned with the Tavern menu which was not initially provided showing the exact appetizer. We moved to the dining room from there and were promptly greeted and offered beverages by our server. The amuses vouches we had were excellent, as well as the wines we selected. All of us ordered seafood entrees; two scallop dishes, swordfish, salmon. The preparations looked amazing. However, the size of the servings was rather small given the price. The ingredients are not extraordinary (except the Brussel Sprouts had chestnuts). The scallops were over seasoned with salt and over cooked to well done. The swordfish portion was very small and slightly overdone. If it had been busy when we arrived for our reservation (5:30 pm), I might have given the benefit of the doubt that the chef was too busy. However, we were one of two parties seated in the dining room, so there should have been adequate time to prepare our meals and not overcook/season them. Unfortunately, this was the worst experience I have had at BVI. I will plan on returning for a final "test", but am not optimistic. Hopefully this was an isolated incident.

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!
