CANTINA 229 IS A SMALL, FARM & RESTAURANT SERVING CASUAL BUT INTENTIONAL FARE, DRINKS, AND FUN!

Cantina 229’s marriage of thoughtful, farm-to-table, world inspired menu options with casual location-inspired atmosphere make a kind of rural destination dining experience that can’t be compared to anything else in the Berkshires. True casual fine dining dining, lawn games, bonfires, wood stove, great bar, and choice of community style or private seating make this restaurant intriguing to many different people from diverse backgrounds and in any season.

Due to COVID-19, we are now taking reservations for outdoor dining under our beautiful tent, and offering to go food for pick up at the restaurant.

    Incredible experience from an innovative chef/restaurateur who has prevailed through the most difficult time for restaurants in our history. Beautiful outdoor deck, impeccable food and drink in a bucolic setting in the Berkshires. They just get better and better.

    Cantina 229 is one of my favorite restaurants on earth. Great food, great ambiance, great staff. The chef-owner Josh has created a special place--a true sanctuary for the local community and a home away from home.

    We LOVE cantina229. This was our second time to Taco Monday under the tent and it was fantastic. We brought our family this time and they loved how "safe" it felt to eat here, and how gorgeous the grounds are! Thank you so much for working so hard for us! The food is delicious, the setting is beautiful, and the staff is SO friendly and knowledgeable!

    Lovely spot. Good service. Tables were all semi-outdoors on a deck with a permanent covering. Limited but interesting menu. A bit pricey, but not outrageous.

    Food: Excellent. Appropriate portion sizes; bold flavor combinations; exceptional ingredients. The Sashimi was magnificent! Drink selection: Excellent - beer, wine, mixed. Atmosphere: Beautiful and quiet. Being on a farm is great, but the outdoor dining does attract flies...perhaps implement some mitigation strategies around the dining area :) Seating: Tables appropriately distanced for COVID-19 precautions, but the small 4-top tables make it difficult for two couples to dine together and maintain their own distance from each other. Replace the 4-tops with larger tables for 4 people to feel safe dining together. Service: Overall, great, but initially just a touch of millennial, "I am even too cool to be working here and telling you about the menu," attitude. It took intentional over-politeness on my part to soften his tone...but then it was all good and we had a nice rapport. Price: Expensive but in line with like restaurants, and the food is worth it. Expect to spend $100-$150 per couple, and just enjoy it :) One sincere criticism: We arrived 15 minutes early, and this was our first visit. When I approached the outdoor dining area, the host was sitting at a table with other staff (I didn't know he was the host or that they were staff). He asked, "can I help you." I indicated we had 4:30 reservations and we were just a touch early. His short reply was, "Then we will be ready at 4:30". That was all he said... As a new patron, I felt not welcomed. Perhaps he could have said, "Welcome, we're not quite ready to seat tables, but if you'd like to walk the grounds or sit at a picnic table on the lawn, we will call you over shortly." Seemingly small, this aspect of hospitality is important; as the first point of customer contact, the host represents the restaurant, and therefore the owners of the restaurant. Would recommend to friends, with caveats :)

    The outdoor seating, under the tent, being able to enjoy the views is wonderful! The dishes are so fresh and enticing (although we thought a few would benefit from fewer ingredients - letting us enjoy them even more). We would not have driven here without being able to reserve a table, so appreciate that feature. Very hard working and eager to please staff. We did not feel at all rushed and were delighted with our meal.

    I’ve been called, a Discerning Diner , and a Food Snob , and probably a lot worse , however, not applicable , in this forum , so with this being said, I’d just like to say , I have nothing, but , rather, high-fives all around ... the drinks, the menu , the ambiance , the staff, the grounds, the vibe, the meal, the everything and the kitchen sink were 🔥!!! If you have one meal while visiting BRK or you have one meal for the rest of your life a la Groundhog Day, it better be at Cabtina229, and if you don’t know , now ya know... This place just gets it, and I would recommend it to a friend, a mother in law, in a house with a mouse , on a friday, or on anyday, in a van or in a house....

    It was our first “date night “ out since Covid hit. I had a lot of anxiety about eating out in public. Fortunately Cantina took every precaution seriously! We ate outdoors at a table for 2 under a huge tent. We were easily 10+ feet from other tables. The servers all wore masks and most guests put masks on in the presence of their server. As usual, the food and drinks were fabulous!!
