Everything was excellent - Haddock Picatta was the best I've had anywhere. Scallop and Shrimp and ShortRib entrees' were equally delicious. Have tried most everything on the menu through take out and never dissapoints. Fantastic burgers and salads too

Service was excellent. It was a little loud and at 7:00 a guitarist/singer started. He was good but a little loud.
Food was very good. I had the swordfish with spinach risotto on special. The risotto was just the way I like it, not too rich and creamy. The swordfish was a good size piece but was cooked a little too well done. If it didn’t have a wine sauce on it it would have been very dry. My friend had the shrimp and scallop with linguine on special. She said it was excellent. We definitely would go back.

Stumbled upon this restaurant looking for Saturday night reservations. So glad we did! MUST have the truffle fries! Every item on the menu looks so good - we're looking forward to going back and exploring all of the options!

Mid-week lunch (1st visit to this restaurant),so would imagine ambiance quite different than dinner time.
Grilled fig salad with greens, goat cheese & prosciutto: excellent! (Added grilled chicken: very tender)
Wonderful Staff!!

I met with friends who used to in MA anymore and were visiting. We were trying to find a spot nearby/ halfway and decided to try Berry Tavern. We were pleasantly surprised on location, food, ambiance, and overall service. We even received a complimentary dessert drink at the end. Awesome spot.

We dined outside which is on the street and was a bit noisy due to the traffic. It took at least 15 minutes before a server came to the table. It was not busy at the restaurant and there was plenty of help so not sure why the delay. Server asked about drinks and if we wanted an appetizer, which we ordered. Spinach ricotta crepes were ok, nothing special. Some seasoning would have helped. Server finally returned and asked if we wanted to order our dinner. I had a the grilled fig salad with salmon. The figs were dried and not grilled, and it was to be topped with their signature crushed walnut topping, but it was a minute amount. The salmon was the only good part of the meal. It was tasty and cooked perfectly. My partner ordered linguine bolognese and 2 meatballs. His only comment was it was ok and he did not want the remaining portion boxed. I watched other servers bring all of the customers some little drink at the end of their meal, yet we did not receive one. Overall, a disappointing experience and we will not be returning.

Our last visit to the Berry Tavern was great. The drinks were creative and the food came out on time and hot. Josh our server was very attentive and came over multiple times during our meal. We recommend the eggplant rollatini, calamari and Grand Marnier shrimp as appetizers. The haddock piccata is fresh and a good-sized portion. You also cannot go wrong with their pizza, burgers and other pasta dishes as well. We enjoy this place on a regular basis.
