    Our server was nice but service was slow because kitchen was short staffed. Food was generally good. Latkes were overcooked but everything elsew was good.

    Wonderful dinner and evening at The Barn. It was our first time there and we will definitely go back. Food was well conceived and perfectly prepared. Our server, David, really helped to make our dinner excellent. He was well-prepared, knowledgeable, professional and enjoyable to be with.

    Though it is not a brunch buffet menu, the menu they offer presents a wide variety of breakfast and lunch options. I ordered the avocado toast, adding poached eggs as the egg choice that goes with it. When I ordered this last summer, it came with fresh fruit, which I suggest they add back to the plate. My friend’s egg plate was presented nicely and her salad was fresh and beautiful. The Barn is one of the the best local places for fresh local food and outstanding service. Harney tea is another nice touch.

    We had reservations in the bar area and our Brussel sprout appetizer and salad were excellent. Our server was the only waiter for the entire bar area and also had to serve as bartender. He soon became overwhelmed because of walk ins and no help from the hostess. Our entrees took a noticeably long time and when they eventually arrived it was obvious they had been sitting unattended. The steak was lukewarm and the gnocchi a cold mushy mess. Nobody checked on us for 15 minutes and by then it was not worth it to have them corrected. So back home for a veggie burger after a $170 bill. Bartender was apologetic, friendly and clearly working hard but needs help from management and the kitchen.

    We showed up a little early for a 12:00 reservation only to wait until 12:15 to be seated. We understood that they were busy and were trying to clear tables. We only became irritated when a group of walk-ins was seated before us after being told that they would have a 20 to 45 minute wait. The menu is very limited but the food was generally tasty. Like many establishments these days they were understaffed and made us aware of that. Not sure I will return.

    When our group was seated, we immediately noticed that there wasn't any music playing, and that we were going to dine listening to the noisy table next to us. After placing an appetizer order (calamari, which was good), we never received the bread offered by our harried server. We watched other tables get bread and water bottles refreshed, but we seemed to be forgotten. We finally flagged down another server to get bread baskets and water for the table. The food seemed to take a long time, but there were other large parties so we were patient. The meals were nicely plated and the fries were good, but $8 for a lukewarm side of baby carrots that numbered 10 pieces seemed really high. The burgers my sons had were deemed "good but not great," but another member of our group barely touched the ramen noodles (it was difficult to eat and should have come with a proper noodle spoon, not just a giant soup spoon). A salad was pretty basic and I picked out a few wilted pieces of greens. Our server apologized when she brought the bill, saying they were short-handed in the kitchen. We understood, but the vibe of the restaurant was lacking overall (pipe in music to the back of the dining room, we beg of you!), and our server paid us little attention. Before tip, our bill was $130 (5 meals, 2 appetizers, no drinks or desserts). Our group decided that we wouldn't go back (we're from Williamstown, hosting some out of town guests).

    We came here on Christmas night for a Prix Fixe menu. They were out of the items we wanted --prime rib, pork belly, and the chocolate dessert--because they had let many walk-ins in earlier that evening. We had a reservation, so that didn't seem right. So 2 of us ordered the gnocchi, which was gooey. The salmon was dry. The beet salad was very good, and the waitress was lovely. But we will not return.

    We were looking for a comfortable place to have Christmas dinner. The Barn Kitchen & Bar was exactly what we needed. The food was very good. The atmosphere is simultaneously attractive and cozy. The staff were kind and attentive. We especially appreciated how hard the staff worked to pace dinner in a way that was not rushed but didn’t leave us searching for the next course. I’m sure many of the staff would rather have been home with their own families, so I don’t take their presence for granted.

    We expected a wonderful holiday vacation at the Williams Inn in Williamstown, MA. While the hotel, recently built, is architecturally beautiful; the service at the Barn Kitchen and Bar was inconsistent . A few of the restaurant staff really needs to be properly trained for this beautiful modern hotel. We waited an hour at our table in the dinning room still not have our appetizers serviced. Finally, utterly frustrated we left the restaurant. While speaking to the manager, who is very nice and professional, we realize that the problem cannot be solved by her. The problem is the lack of ability of this specific waitress to undertake her functions properly. (The hotel should have a thorough recall of some staff and its training.)

    This was my third visit and the experience was as good as ever. I tried the watermelon salad for the first time and loved it. My farro salmon was delicious. It was cooked perfectly which is something I have a hard time doing. I ordered chocolate ice cream for dessert. They served two scoop and I only wanted one. Unfortunately I ate both scoops because it was so good. Looking forward to going back.
