    We have eaten at the Blantyre previously and it never fails to impress. The ambiance is glorious, the food superb, and the service, impeccable. It is an expensive evening for a special occasion….extras add up quickly. It was a special evening. The French Sours, Filet Mignon, and Rack of Lamb were delicious. The duck mousse, grilled octopus, and mango dessert were excellent. Portions were adequate. I would highly suggest that they bring back their Sunday brunch! We miss it!

    The food was excellent, well-prepared and cooked to perfection. Service very attentive. Wine list was in our opinion much too large and should be pared down. There were some reasonable priced bottles, but many expensive ones. Overall, a very positive experience.

    The Boulud takeover of Blantyre is a hugely welcome upgrade. We had stopped coming here years ago as the menu was tired and the service and ambiance stuffy. Our last meal (their attempt to mimic Wheatleigh’s amazing summer BBQ) was a disaster. Now comes Daniel Boulud to the rescue. The food and service were excellent. The $97 prix fixe menu was actually reasonably priced for the quality. The wine list is still overpriced but if you have the means there are some incredible wines to choose from. We had a splits of Bollinger with our apps (amazing gazpacho and ceviche) and a 2005 Margaux with our lamb. The only complaint was that things felt a bit rushed. Our apps arrived while we were still enjoying our incredibly creative Epic Gin and Tonic and before the champagne arrived. Our mains were ready just as we were finishing and before we could open our red wine. A little better pacing and this would have been one of our best Berkshire meals ever. That title still goes to the tasting menu at Wheatleigh but it’s close. We will definitely add this back to the rotation.

    Again a magical experience, starting with cocktails while listening to Blantyre’s wonderful pianist, then dinner on the terrace, to coffee again while serenaded by music. Our group dined on the shrimp risotto appetizers and then lamb chops and filet. The dishes were exquisitely prepared and meat cooked perfectly. The service at this restaurant is truly exceptional. I had always enjoyed Cafe Boulud on the Upper East Side, but the entire experience at Blantyre is truly out of this world. I can’t recommend this restaurant highly enough.

    How do you describe an experience that begins with a drive up to Blantyre mansion, a historic property that has hosted the greats of music and entertainment. Words cannot describe the experience. We started our evening with a glass of Moët and Chandon in the Dom Perignon salon before being seated. Cafe Boulud doesn’t offer a tasting menu but we ordered an assortment of dishes to replicate the experience. The starters of chilled pea soup, Yellowfin Tuna and crab cakes were outstanding. Our entrees consisted of Crescent Farms Duck breast and Rack of Lamb! Everything you would expect from a Daniel Boulud restaurant and more! Lastly, we finished with the Vacherin, a mango and basil sorbet and cardamom meringue! Austin Teely, manager, Frank our server and Alan our sommelier were all gracious, attentive and accommodating!

    The dining experience was exceptionally high including the ambience, noise level and quality of the food ingredients, prepartion and presentation. However, the service was unduly attentive, almost to the point of being intrusive. In 30 years of dining in the Berkshires, this is my first complaint of simply "too much" service...ideally, food service would be invisible, anticipatory and responsive. It is also notable that the portion sizing is apporpriate...neither miniscule nor daunitngly large (possibly a disappointment for those diners who seek a 'doggie bag' reward). On balance, Cafe Boulud enhances Chef Boulud's reputation for thoughful creativity, full confidence in the quality of the goods and flawless execution...if only, securing a reservation was less of a challenge!

    It has been an immense pleasure to dine at Café Boulud at the Blantyre twice within the last calendar year. We have been lucky to have Kevin as our server both times and he is not only an outstanding server but a lovely young man. We were also graced by the knowledge and expertise of Andrés who worked seamlessly with Kevin to provide sensational beverages to accompany our meal. We would go back tomorrow if we could get a reservation. As locals, we feel so lucky to have the Boulud team back at The Blantyre. Hands down best dining experience in The Berkshires.

    Having been to many Daniel Boulud restaurants in New York City, Café Boulud at Blantyre met our expectations in everything except one entrée: the Rack of Lamb "En Persillade": the dish was tasteless, there was not even a hint of parsley, the barley made it even more tasteless, the portion of meat was tiny..... and they charge a $10 supplement for this! The sword fish was excellent. The tuna appetizer was excellent. The Vacherin and Grilled Apricot deserts were excellent.

    Impeccable service, ambiance, and every dish was a visual treat. Fine dining in a stunning setting. Ultimate leisurely dining. My dietary needs were respected and the executive chef had no problems meeting them by tweaking my three courses. Frank, our server, as well as the other servers were in perfect form. At the end of our meal, we felt much gratitude to the whole team.

    One of the best meals we've had in a long time. The setting is glorious and comfortable. The service is on a par with the finest restaurants in NY. Kudos in particular to our server, Zhen-Mei and the maitre d' Austin (both from Pittsfield but with style, manners and professionalism that would be at home in the finest restaurants in the world). The food was just what you would expect from a Boulud restaurant. Creative, interesting, exceedingly well prepared and totally delicious. We left very, very happy and look forward to returning often. Bravo!
