Crystal Dining Room at Bedford Springs Ratings and Reviews
It was my son’s 3rd birthday and we were a bit apprehensive in bringing the kids to a fine dining establishment. But the staff were courteous, brought my kids coloring books and crayons to keep them busy, and even had outstanding kids meals on their menu like the salmon and petite filet mignon. The regular menu is as always, very good especially the foie gras and corn and crab bisque. The carbonara was average. As a treat, they provided a complimentary birthday brownie w icecream for my son. Will come back again.
The meal was excellent and the service was 5 stars. The one recommendation that I would suggest is that the if there is a menu item on the list that is not available, have your staff aware in advance so that your customers do not have to change their order because of the unavailability of the item. (Two of the menu items were not available at the time that I ordered).
Helen, our server, was wonderful. I am allergic to gluten and dairy, but her and the Chef were very accommodating! Their gluten free bread is amazing! However, my husband ordered soup and it never came. By the time we realized it wasn't coming out, our entrees were being delivered. We didn't mention anything, and it wasn't on our bill. I ordered my filet medium and it was still mainly purple upon arrival. I sent it back and the manager delivered it again. We were celebrating our three year wedding anniversary, and they gave us complimentary champagne to celebrate! There was a wedding upstairs that night, so we heard the DJ and music and the crystal chandeliers were bouncing from the dance floor above! Overall our meals (what came, and what was fixed) were delicious and we had a wonderful time, but it definitely could have been better. We expected better.
Our food was good. It was not exceptional for the price, but it was very good overall. We did not like our date appetizer. It was not warm, the maple syrup on the date was too sweet, and the bacon was not very salty or flavorful. The caesar salad was good, and the bread that accompanied it was delicious. I ordered the mustard braised chicken as my main entree, and it was extremely juicy and tender. It was a good meal overall. It was just quite expensive for the overall value versus satisfaction.
Had a great weekend at the hotel and topped it off with dinner at the Crystal Dining Room. Service was excellent. Polite and prompt. Food was great, I had the filet and it was perfectly cooked and lightly seasoned. I was in a group of 5 and we all enjoyed our meals. I will go back and send friends there.
Our party had the Prix Fixe Thanksgiving menu which offered a turkey entrée for the traditionalists, a filet for my beef loving Dad plus a sea bass entrée for me. All of the courses were of a reasonable size and very good. Three of us had the wine pairings, which were very well selected. A good example was a dry red paired with a decadent risotto ravioli drenched in a creamy alfredo sauce. The dining room was not overbooked, so it was quiet and our server Taylor was very attentive. It was a lovely evening and not rushed at all.
Visited Bedford Springs for our anniversary. The Crystal Room was a great experience—Todd, our waiter, was impeccable in his service—knowledgeable, not intrusive, even noticed that I am left handed and put my dessert spoon on the left side. Food was beautifully prepared, interesting choices and delicious desserts. Wine recommendation was right on target as well. Perfect experience for us, and highly recommended!
They were having a special menu featuring Spanish influenced cuisine. My first choice was unavailable. Went with the bacon wrapped pork tenderloin and red beans. Ate the bacon and left the tenderloin which was way too salty (I like my food well seasoned but this went too far). I shared my wife’s braised beef which was ok. Overall, if I’m going to pay for a pricey dinner I expect the food to be at least as good, but hopefully better, than what I can do at home.
We celebrated our anniversary at the Crystal Room and could not have been more delighted to have such a great meal with great service. They acknowledged our anniversary starting with the hostess and then the server we only noted this on the reservation so kudos to them! They brought us champagne to the table which was a nice touch. We started with a drink (Blackberry sour) which was really tasty, and then ordered the potato leak soup and cesar salad. Both were very good the soup was made with gouda cheese and the salad had a garlic (not overpowering) dressing. Our main course selection was the filet and pork chop. Very flavorful. Onto dessert we ordered a vanilla bean dome cheesecake but not as heavy as a cheesecake dessert (sorry the name is escaping me at the moment) The put honey on the plate which made it just the right sweetness. Overall the meal was phenomenal and our waitress was amazing, I wish I remembered her name. She made it appoint to get to know us and give us suggestions on what to do while on the resort. I would highly recommend the Crystal Room to anyone looking for that special date night or just a night out.
The food was amazing! The salmon was crispy yet succulent, the risotto was just right. My meal came with an arugula pesto, which is something I've never tried. It was great. We topped it off with Creme Brules. The staff was polite, attentive, but a little bit slow. It isn't overpriced for fine dining, but you will drop a pretty penny.
Very nice anniversary dinner with my husband. We had a complimentary drink and dessert due to our celebration. I had the fresh trout and my husband had the lamb. Both were excellent. Beautiful, upscale atmosphere and comfortable seating. The resort setting is fabulous, too.
Unfortunately, the hotel's ballroom is directly above the restaurant. Let's just say, we could hear the music very clearly from the wedding reception. Also, all of the light fixtures where shaking most of the evening as the wedding attendees were on the dance floor. Regarding the food -- the fish was way over cooked for our taste (very dry), but the pork was exceptional. Not sure if the kitchen was over worked due to the wedding reception, but compared to previous visits to Bedford Springs, the main course was not work the price.
Since we were staying at the hotel, it may have been helpful to have a heads up that the restaurant may have been less than perfect during a wedding reception. Hopefully they would have directed us to the other restaurant in the building.
