We had an early dinner reservation, many, many open tables and quiet private areas, were seated in the porch area which smells of mold and not suitable for dining,next to a big, noisy party, asked to be moved because my wife and son were highly allergic to mold and were told no other tables were available....only accommodation was to open the door to the outside to clear the mold smell and we froze. Talked to the chef at the end of dinner but still very unsatisfied with the whole experience! Celebrating one year of our new home and life in the Berkshires.....almost packed up our dinner to eat in the car.....we’re there less than an hour......

Limited menu options. No printed menu, had to scan. The staff wasn't helpful at all. Would not go back. Staff get living wages so prices are higher. It really was a shame because restaurant itself was beautiful.

We had a private room for my family for our brunch. The food was absolutely delicious, and the ambiance was very relaxing and Covid-safe. Every member of the staff we encountered was very friendly and attentive.

I love the personal rooms now. I hope it remains an option even after covid.

I just love this place. The staff are wonderful and the food is worth the travel. When a friend comes to town and I want to show them how cool the Berkshires are, this is one of my staples.

Great dinner! A bit pricey, but I understand it was due to rising cost to be able to pay their staff a living wage, rather to just depend on tips. We tipped anyways. Happy to help. Always a great experience!

Place is fantastic all around. If you’re in town you should go. They don’t make them like this anymore. Like an old vintage you could feel the age. Food was fabulous! Layout and decor amazing! Our five year old was with us. She is very well behaved but it’s very subdued. Great for groups and couples.

First time here for Valintines Day. Stuck with limited special menu for outrageous price. Food and cocktails were excellent, staff worked hard to make things nice. Don't like using Open Table, don't like being asked to view menu and place food order on line while I'm setting in the restaurant, here or anywhere. Staff can easily maintain a safe distance here while talking to guests and taking orders. Look forward to going back and ordering from their normal menu and please ditch the online crap as soon as possible.

Excellent, excellent. Truly enjoyed our meal Friday night - the ambiance was cozy (fires lit), the music was relaxing (Dylan & more), the the staff extremely friendly and the food - the food. I rarely leave reviews but had to for this place and this kitchen. The Carrot Cacio de Pepe and the Winter Bean Salad were really exceptional, as were the recommended wine pairings. Enjoyed our meal so much we came back Saturday night and savored it just as much. Highly recommend.

Good locally sourced food. Very friendly staff- very prompt. All interactions were done via internal chat. Staff fully covid compliant. Our dining space was inhabited by staff only when called. Chef delivered the food directly to us. We had an individual room (most were individual). There was a fireplace and a well-stocked bar. Drinks were delicious. Thanks for making our one and only dining experience safe and delicious!!!

We understand it's hard for all restaurants during Covid, so I write this understanding that. The Stagecoach has been our favorite place for years. This time, however, the food was very mediocre and the glass of wine I ordered was only about 1/4 full, so a clear difference from past experiences there.

Everything was perfect. The fire was waiting for us in a private nook way earlier than our scheduled time. We had the room all night with candles, fire, historic charm. The timing was perfect on the 6 course meal and items and drink pairings on the winter tasting menu were also diverse yet familiar. Staff friendly and accommodating. Elegant and historic without being pretentious or outdated. Highly recommend.

Went for my birthday with 2 friends. In November it was too cold for most outdoor dining, but the fire pit abs heaters here made it cozy. The food was delicious and they are really on top of safety with ordering through online chat. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Even the indoor space was completely divided into private rooms. Beautiful setting.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience to celebrate my Husbands 50th birthday. Although it was 54 degrees and we were bundled up since we prefer outdoor dining thanks to COVID, we sat near a fire pit and were offered a patio heater as well! Service was amazing, including bday singing and food was delicious! Highly recommend!

Wow! We had an absolutely delicious meal. And what a well thought out plan to keep everyone safe and warm. Even though it was a pretty cold night, Staff kept adding wood to the firepit and snugged the heatlamps right up to the tables. And the strung lights made for a special ambience in these tough times. Thank you, Stagecoach Tavern!
