    Thanksgiving dinner 2022…overpriced fixed menu at $80 per person even if you bring a child thats 6 year old…fish dish came in cold, had to wait very long in between appetizer and main meal. Service was mediocre, had to repeatedly ask for the same thing like olive oil or for someone to light up the candle. For $330 plus tip you would expect a 5 star experience, unfortunately this place disappoints with rushed food, poor service and lack refinement expected from such place.

    We were celebrating a birthday. Everything was perfect! Julie at the bar made the perfect cocktails, Sarah and Jamaica were amazing in the dining room. The food looked like it belonged in magazines. Everything was delicious! 1894 was amazing - we will be back!

    Beautiful room in the guided age “cottage”. Our server was pleasant and attentive. The wine pairings were nice and accommodating to one non-red drinker. The food was delicious and with lovely presentation. I had the lamb, perfectly prepared and with a nice sauce my husband had the duck and was also pleased. You should go in hungry because by the time four courses are finished, you will be quite full!

    We were excited for fine dining in our trip to the Berkshires and saw 1894 had availability and a tasting menu with wine pairings. Ultimately, the wine selection was mediocre (not really paired well), and the food was decent but nothing great. With the truffle risotto - it seemed like the cooked the truffle into the risotto which killed the flavor and likely used a jarred truffle or frozen truffle butter. Smoked mushroom chitarra was actually just fettuccine with butter on it and some chopped mushrooms, and dry… no smoke flavor, so again, not great. Scallops were slightly over cooked, duck was solid. What would have gone great with the intermezzo sorbet was a splash of bubbly in it. Service was great but they were mostly clueless about the wine. I would give it another try, just in case the chef was having an off night, but I would set my expectations much lower the next time.

    Wonderful old Manor House with amazing views, be sure to get there earlier to enjoy a drink on the terrace with the beautiful Berkshires in the distance. The food was sublime and the service 6 star! Thank you to everyone at 1894 who made our night a memory to treasure, would not hesitate to recommend.

    We used to dine at Cranwell regularly on visits to Tanglewood. The menu and food quality now are a step up from what they were before Miraval took over. Get set for outstanding gourmet dining.

    The food was excellent, the setting really lovely, and the service was superb. Highly recommend. We were in an early seating (6pm) for dinner and it was very quiet in a nice way but it may get livelier as the crowd comes in. Kudos to the chef and the wait staff.

    The food was fantastic. The Fois Gras was particularly good, but the duck and the desert (chocolate and ice cream was great as well). The pairing with Champaign and wine was also great. The service was excellent. We told them that we had to drive back to Boston and they really served us without lengthy breaks.

    The food and ambiance at this restaurant is wonderful. Unfortunately, they have changed to a pre-fix menu only. That is disappointing as one does not always want to do (or have the time to do) a full 4 or 6 course tasting menu with wine while in the Berkshires. I will enjoy it for a special occasion but feel that it is a disserve to the restaurant and space to not allow for ala cart dining.

    Room with zero ambiance. We were offered a table in the corner facing a wall. They moved us to a better table upon request. No cocktail service offered until requested. Very badly made martini was result. Food was occasionally good - fruit roll-up amuse was the only really good bite. Other dishes lacked sauces and seasoning and were poorly presented. Service was friendly but inept. After receiving the main course I needed to flag down the server for forks, the paired wine, and water. But for this you pay $$$$ with a mystery 15% admin fee (legality?) and can only leave cash as gratuity.

    The service was great. The lounge area is quite nice and had a fireplace which made it quite cozy. Not sure why they have a wine closet there taking up space when a table or bench and large mirror reflecting the fireplace would be nicer. The seating in the bar is awkward and the lighting is terrible. Bright halogen or LED lights in the chandelier which make it unpleasant - which is too bad since the view from the bar and the fireplace in the room are great. The wine selection was pedestrian at best. The dining room is nice, although the lighting is again too bright and the furniture could use some updating. The charcuterie plate was terrific but the rest of the food was a B. The brown sauce on the gnocchi, however, had so much flour in it - it was goopy. All that said, we had a nice time, the service made up for most things and we will go back.

    We weren't sure what to expect; sometimes restaurants at resorts aren't the best. But this one was! The dining room is small - an old parlor of the original mansion. Maybe 20 tables? But it is quiet and in summer would look out onto a pretty lawn. The staff was excellent - and the food!!! Wow! We had a special mussel appetizer which arrived in a square plate with a large square depression in the middle. The mussel were neatly arranged in this depression - but when you extract them you discover they are nestled in a delicious broth and inside there is a dollop of chimichurri - just bright enough taste to enliven the entire dish. We had a sourdough loaf so we could dip it in the delicious sauce! We also had the crispy rice sushi - beyond yummy. I had the short rib for dinner - melt in your mouth and just the perfect amount. My husband had the duck, which I really enjoyed. He did not (he likes crispy skinned duck, this was more like strips of filet). But the dessert made up for it - incredible vanilla ice cream. Literally, you have to try it even if you aren't a vanilla person. We will DEFINITELY return!
