About The Old Inn On The Green

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.

Had a wonderful meal and the ambiance was everything we hoped it would be. Can't wait to return. "Candlelight was so special". Thank you for a lovely evening. Kathleen Crawford, Litchfield, Ct.

Old Inn on the Green remains the finest restaurant in SW Massachusetts/NW Connecticut. Especially in the wintertime, the restaurant exudes its colonial charm, with multiple cozy candle-lit rooms with working fireplaces, matched with an outstanding and continually varied menu. This time, the favorites were Colorado Lamb, an old standby, and steak frites - a relatively new, surprisingly conventional, yet welcomed addition to the menu. The wine list is worth perusing at length, some older gems hidden within the offerings. We had a relatively new (to us) waiter - still learning the ropes of adding to the experience of the evening. Regardless, never a disappointment. The relatively high prices (more similar to Manhattan) are the only reason we don't come more frequently, but it is our #1 place for special occasions, and to impress friends with the charms of old New England.

Hands down the best dinner in the Berkshires. Creative, delicious concepts - red salad, lovely mushroom soup and beautiful cod and salmon dishes. Only disappointment was the bread which is usually superb too.

The atmosphere is always charming and inviting. The food is in a class by itself. The presentation is top notch and quality of food is first-rate. At times the waiters appear a bit overwhelmed and understaffed when crowded.

This continues to be the best restaurant in the Berkshires, combining terrific, unmatched atmosphere, great service and superb food. Absolutely perfect in every way. Peter Platt and Meredith Kennard and the entire staff really care about what they are doing and it shows. An absolute must when visiting or, as we do, living in the Berkshires.

We were enjoying the evening with our children who had arrived from CA. This authentic New England Inn is a favorite of ours and quickly became a favorite of our extended family. The waitstaff is knowledgable and helpful in identifying menu offerings both by content and by preparation.
The menu was diverse enough to satisfy the range of diners' needs and preferences. The quality of the food was exceptional. We frequently dine in NYC and would rate this restaurant as equal to places we have recently dined in NYC.

The presentation of the meal elements, accompanied by a quiet ambiance of candlelight and no annoying music was a relief from the hectic , seasonal hype in other establishments. We felt as if we had stepped back into a quieter, more relaxed time where we could just converse, eat, and. Enjoy being together.
We highly recommend the Old Inn on the Green at any time of the year, but there is something so special about stopping there on a snowy evening.

 (San Francisco)·Dined on November 26, 2016

We've been to SF Bay area spots like Gary Danko, Chez Panise, and The F.L. This was as good as those and more romantic. While our server could use a bit more personality or humor, the wine service was spot on. We had the tasting menu and enjoyed every bite, even me who doesn't like beets. Dinner by the fireplace with only real candles lighting the dining rooms adds to the romantic spirit. The drive home this time of year is dark and unnerving, but the food makes that drive worth the risk.

Visited for my Birthday with my wife. It was love at first sight. The ambiance dining under candlelight was so relaxing and romantic. The salmon and chicken were presented in a way which you would expect to find in most exclusive restaurants. The history of this restaurant was very interesting. It was an hour and a half drive from our home but was well worth the trip. The restaurant was very quiet and was very nice not to have to raise your voice to have a quiet conversation.
Highly recommended from the ride into the rural setting and a place to go for a special occasion or for a nice night out.

We dined on a Saturday night for my birthday. We had the tasting and everything was delicious! The service was not bad, but not great either, and certainly not as good as would be expected at a restaurant with such high quality food. My biggest complaint about the service was that before ordering the tasting we told our server we weren't crazy about the dessert that was on the menu. He didn't hesitate to say we could order something else. We proceeded to order the tasting and I asked if he would like to know what we would like for dessert instead of what was listed. He said no, and that we had a few hours before we get to that point. Several hours later, he never came to ask what we would like for dessert and we were served what was listed on the menu. Overall it was a great meal, but I'm not sure it was worth the price. We've had many meals in New York for the same price or less where both the food AND the service were outstanding.

Always a delicious meal and top-notch service. James has an amazing memory and understands hospitality. This was only our second time but we plan on making it a monthly treat. Excellent menu--fresh, local and not ridiculously trendy like so many menus have become.
The ambiance is so different--quiet and candlelit. Not library quiet--we had a lot of laughs and lively conversation--but perfect for conversation with dinner companions. We were here in the winter last year and the roaring fire was divine.

We go here a few times a year. Two prix fixe menus to choose from. Extensive wine list, also beer and cocktails. The food is wonderful; expect to drop at least $200 for two people but well worth the $$. 1/2 price during the week. Historic, romantic, candlelight only. I highly recommend. Portions for the prix fixe chef's tasting menu are perfect, you will leave well satiated but not stuffed.

Food was truly delicious, perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. Wait staff was professional and cordial. The seating, however, left something to be desired. Despite making the reservation nearly two months in advance, stopping at the restaurant the afternoon of the preceding day to affirm that the dining room was air conditioned, and phoning on the afternoon of our reservation, we were seated in the bar and not in the dining room. The hostess said because it was extremely hot that evening (and it was), the number of diners they would have expected to be seated on the outdoor dining terrace asked to be seated inside. Fair enough, but given the checking and rechecking we did about our reservation, it would seem fitting that another party was put in the bar instead.

This has to be the most beautiful restaurant in the Berkshires, perhaps in Mass. The main dining room is decorated with delightfully old fashioned (original? Perhaps) wall paintings and lit solely by candlelight. But they do not get by on good looks alone, as the food is very delicious. A treat, and well worth the long drive from Lenox or Lee. And the set price dinner during the week is a bargain.

We drove from the Northampton area to celebrate our wedding anniversary. There are many good restaurants in the Great Barrington/Lee area but most are closed on Mondays. Thankfully, The Old Inn is open. We dined on the enclosed al fresco back porch, watched the birds dine just outside along with us, and were thrilled with the quality of the food and service. Everything was perfect. Everything was available. The flowers arrived before us (they were discreet enough to subtly ask if me if we wanted to dine inside or out, then brought the prepaid flowers over). Again, food: perfect and unique and as good as the restaurants we were used to in Los Angeles.
