Menu selections from the 3 course Easter menu had a nice variety. Quality of the ingredients, preparation and presentation of each of our courses were excellent. Service was attentive and efficient. Seated in front of the fireplace in the library, we very much enjoyed the atmosphere and the beautiful detail of the room. Overall, it was a memorable experience and we look forward to returning.
ALWAYS LOVE THE AMBIENCE AT THE HAMPSHIRE HOUSE. THANKSGIVING DINNER WAS OVERPRICED. STANDARD SALAD AND ROLLS, TINY BITE SIZED DESSERT. TURKEY AND TRIMMINGS TASTY AND HOT, ALTHOUGH THERE WAS NO CRANBERRY SAUCE! WOULD CHOOSE ANOTHER VENUE FOR THANKSGIVING DINNER NEXT YEAR.
Outstanding service and perfectly prepared food. Enjoyed a stroll through Commons before lunch and then had dinner overlooking the park. Perfect day. We had early seating at 12:30 pm so it was quiet. A nice indulgence for first Thanksgiving eating out !
Beautiful spot. Service was good. Pricey. Mother's Day was 65.00 per person for a la carte brunch. They did not provide any additions like bread, or even a complimentary mimosa or flower. One person thought the flavor of the Hollandaise sause was funky.
The Hampshire House was just what I was looking for this past Thanksgiving for dinner. My husband has been hospitalized for weeks in Boston and I wanted to have some normalcy for my daughters to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner. The waiter was wonderful and the food and atmosphere was as well. Beautiful and cozy. The only unfortunate part was that we were rushed through our three course dinner. We were unable to finish our first course before our entrees arrived and then the desserts came just as the entrees were being cleared. I had asked if we would be rushed when I made the reservations because we were the last seating and I had also asked to please pace the courses when we arrived. We've been under so much stress, we just needed to reconnect and relax. The waiter realized what was happening and he asked the manager to come over. He paid for my two glasses of champagne, which was very nice. All in all a lovely time but at $75 pp to have not been able to finish our first course or too full to manage dessert, it was a very expensive dinner.
Beautiful, historic decor befitting Boston. The Thanksgiving special menu, turkey and the like, was excellent. While my server was most kind, I felt very rushed. I would attribute this to the holiday and the need for turnover in seating, but there were plenty of empty tables. This aside, it was a spectacular experience.
Old Boston flare. Food was average, over priced, service was very poor.
