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!

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.

 (Nashville)·Dined on November 2, 2017

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 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.
