Excellent food preparation and presentation
This is our neighborhood great spot. Out here, the neighborhood is anything within a 30 minute drive. Great old building, wonderful service and really outstanding food. The wine list is solid as well
Fine dining in a quintessential New England inn.
Amazing food, service, and ambiance! Especially love the candle-light!
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.
The service was outstanding. The food was spectacular.
eVERYTHING WAS EXCELLENT FOOD AND SERVICE WAS SUPERB. AMBIANCE WAS TERIFIC i RECOMEND IT HIGHLY.
lovely christmas day dinner for my mom and myself~wanted to take her to a special dinner and space The Old Inn was the perfect choice.
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.
Romantic in setting, elegant in presentation, delectable in preparation. A lovely, lovely evening. Service was excellent - present but subtle. You will want to linger.
Charming old Inn in scenic New England small town. Creative and varied menu, friendly and helpful staff. Delightful.
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!
A long time favourite, unbelievable food and ambience, consistently above average.
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.
Our favorite restaurant in the area. We are never disappointed.
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
One of our faves in the Berkshires. Upscale but rustic, ultra-romantic, and won't break the bank.
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.
Absolutely wonderful dining experience. Took advantage of the tasting menu, with the wine accompaniment, and it was top notch. Definitely a place that I will come back to and I was visiting from Indiana.
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 ambiance was enchanting, the food exquisite. The candlelit dining room offered us an evening from a time when people knew how to savor the moment and enjoy one another. Our visit to The Old Inn On the Green will stay with us through busier days and cause us to smile for along time to come.
We have been here several times and the meals range from very good to very excellent! The historic New England ambiance by candlelight combined with the wonderful meals makes this our go to restaurant for taking visitors or special occassions. Pricey but worth it
Wonderful meal in a candle lit dining room. Food was fabulous.
We always love the Old Inn. The food and atmosphere are wonderful as is the staff. What can be bad with a wonderful candlelight dinner
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.
Absolutely outstanding! The service is wonderful. The staff even brought little surprise tasters along the way. Our evening was so relaxing and we had time to enjoy the food, the wine and each other without being rushed through a meal. It is now my favorite restaurant!
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.
This is one of the best restaurants in the Berkshires and we always make a point of going there even though it's a bit out of the way---well worth the trip.
It was a fabulous eve. Went for our anniversary, the perfect spot to dine.
Would return without hesitation.
Did not expect that quality food in the Bershires'
The food as always was great, the staff knows not only the food but how the give good service. There is a small outdoor dining area which is very nice but as it only has about 6 tables I felt that saying Great was over stating.
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.
An exceptional dining experience. Outstanding in all ways.
Outstanding food in a beautiful rustic location. We were there on a Thursday and took advantage of the special prix fixe menu offered on Wednesdays and Thursdays only - $30 for a truly outstanding meal, an unbelievable bargain.
