Fantastic place to eat and a wonderful atmosphere!
Lovely spot to celebrate our 39th anniversary, starting off with a grand reception by 6 hosts! Table nicely decorated for occasion, along with a card from the restaurant. Our 1/2-bottle of bubbly to start turned out to be 2 single serving sized bottles, but just right to accompany a delicious beet salad which we shared. Chef would not split salad for us as it would have interfered with the presentation! LI duckling entrée very good, although a little too much Brussell's sprouts salad. Scottish salmon entrée looked lovely on the plate, with nice, crispy skin. Chef did substitute asparagus for the Swiss chard. Portions just right to save room for an apple cake which came decorated with more anniversary wishes in the form of a dark chocolate brick which we got to take home. Thank you to BVI for such a nice anniversary dinner.
Though the place was empty, open table only offered seating options at 5:15 and 8pm. Host said he had no idea way...since the place was dead.
My husband and I got married here 12 years ago. We celebrated our anniversary with an awesome dinner and stayed overnight in a beautiful room. My husband remarked “It is the Greenwich Ct. of New Hampshire.”
I booked the Bedford Village Inn for our anniversary dinner. Our table had a card that said--"Happy Anniversary". That was a nice touch. However, we had to wait close to 15 minutes before a waiter approached our table to take our drink orders. From there, it took another 10 minutes to get our drinks. It was very frustrating. We did not hear about the one dinner special until 20 minutes after we sat down. Quite frankly, I expected MUCH more from the service. On a positive side, the food was very tasty. My dessert (the apple cider cake) was very dry and I had to ask another member of the service staff for coffee ( our waiter did not bring it). My wife chocolate cake was quite moist though. Overall, a nice place. We have dined here several times and had great service. This time, not so good.
This restaurant’s menu is excessively pricey for its location. The dining rooms were well cared for but dated. We had specified we were on our anniversary dinner and we were tucked into a room with larger parties. That was a disappointment. Service was excellent, but the management of the dinner seemed disconnected. The wine menu was extensive, with compliments ranging up to the high hundreds. We ate a very conservative dinner, i.e. night’s special Halibut, and had 1 beer and a martini. Our bill totaled 170 not including tip. There are several other restaurants in the area that provide for a better experience at 2/3’s the price. Disappointing. You will leave feeling hungry. On a positive note, the signature desert was fantastic. If you don’t mind dropping the cash on a “nice” restaurant then it is ok. Next time, we will go elsewhere....
A great evening and experience for a work anniversary. Loved it.
Our only suggestion would be to improve the lighting a bit. Although I found the lights to create ambience, the lights were plain frustrating for my husband to read his menu..and he is only 52!
Awesome dinner and ambiance. We will continue to have dinner there and drinks there because it was a wonderful experience
We made a reservation (5pm Sunday evening) and specified that we were celebrating our anniversary. Upon arrival the hostess looked up from the phone, as if we were bothering her, did not say how can I help you, or anything like it. In fact, we were not greeted or made to feel welcome at all. We instead had to announce ourselves and our reservation. We were then shown to the worst table (#15 as I recall) in a completely vacant room. This was not going to do for our anniversary dinner. Frankly, we expect more from BVI. Past experiences were stellar.
After asking and being seated at another table a server approached and poured us tap water without offering sparkling or still water. He did not introduce himself, tell us the specials, etc. We finally at one point asked him for his name (Ryan). He told us 1 entree special as opposed to a list of several which we had heard another server enthusiastically reciting; he did not tell us the appetizer special, did not tell us the sides that come with the entree special. Ryan gave absolutely zero presentation of anything. Instead, he gave us a very smug impression. We were not wished a "Happy Anniversary", nothing. Meanwhile, the server at the other table gave great service and presentation and I heard several "Happy Birthday"s given to 1 table.
The meals were pretty good and the bus boy was very pleasant. Upon exiting, a new hostess was in position. We asked for a manager's business card, but were given a generic BVI card with no email address or manger's name.
Service is the reason we dine out and is the reason we chose BVI for our celebration. After this past experience (an over $200.00 insult) we are in no hurry to return. Our next celebration will be in Boston since the BVI no longer holds appeal.
We got married at the Bedford Village Inn a few years ago and then deployed overseas. We finally got a chance to come back for dinner and they were so welcoming! Complimentary champagne, a tour of our wedding dinner room, complimentary anniversary chocolates with “happy anniversary” written on them! It was a really lovely little touch that made our night feel extra special. The food and drinks were all absolutely fantastic. And then to really cap off a fabulous night, another diner anonymously covered our bill. I assume because my husband was in his military uniform (he’d come straight from his recruiting job). Highly recommend BVI!
This was the tenth year my husband took our granddaughter out to dinner for their birthday tradition. They both love their special time together. BVI has always made the event just a little more special with signed menus, extra attentive service and warm greetings from the staff. They are both lovers of good food and BVI never fails to please. If you are looking for a lovely venue, excellent food and a place to start a family tradition , look no further. This is the place.
We’ve been coming to The Bedford Village Inn for special occasions for the last 25 years, and it never disappoints. Beautiful venue, gourmet cuisine, and impeccable service. A very traditional style, so not for those looking for a lively scene.
This was a regular staple for me when looking for an upscale dining experience in southern NH. I was disappointed this weekend. Service was well below par and it took almost 1 1/2 hours for our main course to arrive. When it did arrive my wife’s filet that was to be medium well was blood red. They brought it back and instead of making correcting it a priority, it took another 30 minutes to get the new plate. The manager made my wife’s dinner on the house, but it was a little to late. Will not go back.
Wonderful food and stellar service. Staff needs to do a better job at policing their guests for noise. There were a number of tables who were excessively loud for such a small space and it detracted from the overall experience. I would expect better from one of the finest restaurants in entire state given the price. Otherwise, excellent.
The staff at BVI were exceptional- my husband and I got married here a year ago and this was our 1 year anniversary. Abby took such great care of us and our dinner, drinks and dessert were excellent.
Fantastic dining experience. Our waitor was exceptional, paying special attention to every detail. I would say the service was better than any restaurant we have been to in NH.
We went today for a birthday and anniversary celebration. The hosts made it a very very special occasion for us. The service was impeccable and the food was cooked to perfection. Kudos to the entire team
THERE WERE A COUPLE ITEMS THAT WERE ON THE MENU THAT ENDED UP BEING UNAVAILABLE, THEY WERE QUICK TO LET ME KNOW AND GAVE US AN OFF MENU ITEM FOR NO CHARGE. IT WAS MY WIFE AND MY ANNIVERSARY AND THEY WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND TO MAKE THE EXPERIENCE AWESOME. THANKS AGAIN FOR A GREAT DINNER!
The food and service were both exceptional. Can’t wait to return and try more of the menu.
Excellent in all ways!
Service was top shelf. Food was inspired and amazing. Can't think of any way to improve.
Everyone greeted us with a "Happy Anniversary". We found a card and curly cues on the table to help us celebrate. The whole evening was relaxed and unrushed. Service was perfect. The filet and market catch were delicious. And dessert came with "Happy Anniversary" signed on a square of chocolate. The Samoa Cheesecake was out of this world! Definitely a great place to celebrate a special occasion.
We had a lovely dinner. Service was excellent; professional, polite and friendly. The crab cakes were a little fishy tasting, but our entrées were well presented, very tasty and unique.
food was wonderful. waiter was terrific. wine list very good, except it does not have something from PEAY Vineyard, Sonoma Coast CA
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.
Great experience. Service was above and beyond. Food was excellent
Every time we go to BVI it is an excellent experience
Thank you for a wonderful dining experience not just on June 9th but throughout the weekend. Our daughter was married there on June 8th. all food throughout the weekend was wonderful.. all work well as a team and create a very magical, warm, and inviting environment..
Thank you for the wonderful memories..

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.
We had outstanding service and excellent food. This was an anniversary dinner and we were very pleased to celebrate this special occasion at BVI. We had drinks, apps, dinner and dessert. Everything was great.
Made the reservation with the open table app. Arrived 15 minutes early and the seated us riught away. Food was fantastic.
Always go there for our Anniversary. Never disappointed. Meal is very leisurely No hurry to get us out
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.
The Bedford Village Inn was a wonderful surprise. We had never been there before and i hope to return in the future.
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.
