Dining at The Old Inn on the Green is an extraordinary experience: fine wine, great food, the dining room illuminated by candles, the murmur of conversation from the other room. As Chef and Owner, Peter Platt is always firmly in charge, working to create innovative and memorable meals that are an event unto themselves. Over the past several years, the Old Inn has developed the tradition of serving a Prix Fixe menu - each Saturday evening a different four-course meal is prepared, and guests are offered a choice of two main courses as well as a choice of dessert. On other nights, the Inn offers a well rounded menu of a la carte items, with specials which change daily. The wine list is graced with a array of thoughtfully selected estate bottled wines from France, California and Italy. The dining rooms are lit entirely by candlelight and there are fireplaces in each room. Comfortably worn windsor chairs and mahogany tavern tables furnish the dining rooms.

It was a little over the top...I would even call it pretentious as far as the food is concerned. The prix fixe menu was too expensive for what you got ($125) and did not even include coffee.

Be prepared to dine by candlelight. This is an old 1700 era inn. No electric lighting in the dining rooms. Food is fab.

I took my partner for his 65th birthday. We found the restaurant staff totally lacking in warmth, unhelpful, occasionally inept, and at times inattentive. The setting is absolutely beautiful, so it was a total surprise to find the staff so lacking in warmth. I didn't expect the servers to be my friends, but a smile or bit of warmth would have been welcome. When we asked for the sommelier, he acted as if we had disturbed his private time. He wasn't helpful at all, and wasn't friendly. I had contacted the restaurant in advance, and asked for some form of birthday acknowledgment. They told me they would put a marzipan happy birthday message on my partner's dessert. They forgot to do that too. We left disappointed.

The food and service are extraordinary, food is creative, perfect, delicious, and generous.
There is no better restaurant anywhere. Beautiful candlelight illuminates the small historic intimate dining rooms. A fireplace with an actual wood fire is blazing and crackling in each dining room. The food is indescribably perfect, soups and sauces velvety smooth, perfectly seasoned, miniature carved vegetables, surprising additions between courses. An elegant little starter appetizer and warm delicious generous bread and butter will keep one amused between courses. Try the tasting menu!

What a fantastic dining experience!! Lit by only candlelight makes me a wonderful ambience. Everything from the pumpkin soup to the swordfish to the chocolate ganache cake was delicious! In addition, the service was fantastic. While not a cheap restaurant, it certainly is worth the price.

We celebrated our 12th anniversary sitting next to a beautiful fire eating the most sublime food imaginable by candlelight.

We had, respectively, seared fillet of Hudson Valley foie gras over lentils and a spinach salad with Normandy duck for appetizers; Hudson Valley squab three ways and short ribs with steak on top for entrees; poached Bosc pear with cardamom ice cream and the best chocolate cake in the world followed by the best coffee we'd ever had. Wine list was very good. This was a memorable meal.

The restaurant itself is memorable, too. From the front door to the dining rooms to the tap room, from the bare branches and old wasps nests to the knobbly squashes here and there, the ambiance is a study in less-is-more perfectio

This restaurant is in a large colonial home dating from 1760, nestled in a charming, southern Berkshire County (MA) town. There are 4-5 smallish dining rooms, so it is very cozy and romantic. All the lighting came from candles and, season depending, there are fireplaces in every room. The food was outstanding, and the service was impeccable. We will definitely return here.

My spouse and I had a wonderful experience. The food was delicious and special. The service was excellent and laid back enough to allow a "slow food" experience. We never felt rushed. We will most definitely return. It would be nice to go with friends, too!

This is a strange restaurant. It has candlelight,but is less romantic than a fast food restaurant. The rooms are very small and low ceilinged as one would expect in a landmark building of this vintage. Regrettably, the restaurant squeezes so many tables into each of the rooms that the din is close to unbearable. The constant hustling and bustling of the service staff (in a large part due to its inefficient table service), combined with the noise of many large family gatherings, makes you feel like you are eating (what is very competently prepared food) in a bus station. I don't know why the restaurant bothers with the affectation of candleight...fluorescent lighting would be more fitting to the atmosphere.

Our second time here, it's pricey but you do indeed get what you pay for, and getting there requires a trip into the country but that's part of the charm, you feel like you're in another place. They have mid-week prix fixe specials that are a bit easier on the wallet. Very romantic, great for special birthday's or anniversaries. I'm sure we'll be back.

We have been to The Inn on the Green many times and it is more than consistantly excellentWhen we need a substitute they are more than willing to give us one. I don't eat chocolate and they always find something that I can eat for dessert when I order the special menu.I would recomment this restaurant to any foodie

Didn't meet expectations. Seated at a small, cramped table in an almost empty dining room, then offered another poorly-located table before finally agreeing (not very graciously) to seat us at a better table. Had a long wait for white wine order "until it could be chilled." Would have been nice to relax with the wine upon arrival. Chose to go Thursday night because we preferred that price-fixed menu to the Wednesday one shown on the restaurant's website, but were told that was "only an example" and were presented with a different menu that was less appealing. Then why label them "Wednesday" and "Thursday" on the website? Food was good but not extraordinary given other options in the Great Barrington area.

The Old Inn on the Green is truly a Berkshire gem. The atmosphere is outstanding. No electric lights, only soft candle light either on the table or chandalier. The service is impeccable and the food is freshly prepared with each order. The only downside I found was the desserts.
They lacked in quality for a restaurant with such superb dining.

We celebrated our birthdays here this year and last. Last summer, we had a fabulous meal all around, including an outstanding lobster risotto, rich with seafood flavor, perfectly cooked rice, balanced flavors -- just divine. This time, the same dish lacked the seafood depth, though it was beautifully cooked. Melange of vegetables with main courses was better than those things have any right to be -- perfectly cooked and tasty. Potato sides very good. But we were not told that the preparation of the steak au poivre on the prix fixe menu was precisely the same as the flat iron steak we ordered from the a la carte list. Good, if somewhat pricey, wines. Had a lovely zinfandel we'll look for again. Still a lovely place to celebrate.

Wonderful. The Old Inn is perfect. The dinning rooms are beautiful with flattering lighting. The service is unobtrusive and no one interupted our conversation to ask 'is everything alright' as they have in every other restaurant I have eaten in t his summer.
The food was delicious with local ingredients. The foi gras is to die for served on a bacon infused bed of lentils.
The gilled veal chop is cooked to perfection and full of flavour. The chef lets the food speak for itself without showing off by adding
marscapone or another counter intuitive ingredient.
The Old Inn plays to it's strengths; it has taken an old building and decorated it with style
just as it prepares wonderful ingredients letting the flavours sing.

We had a wonderful Summer Season meal on Sunday evening, 8/16. The food choices were many and beautifully presented as well as delicious. The four of us were celebrating our 52 anniversary and the manager placed us in a small room all to ourselves. It was a very special evening at a gem of a restaurent.

Disappointing. We expected a great meal, but instead got food that was prosaic, with a bright spot being the dessert. This was not inspired cooking. The service was asleep at the wheel. We weren't served bread, had to ask for it, then had to ask again for butter. Our waitress was abrupt when she showed up at all. Great atmosphere, but not enough to bring us back.
