Welcome to Seven Lamps! The first of Chef Drew Van Leuvan"s creations, we feature fresh, local "craft" foods made with passion. We make just about everything from scratch, offering the highest quality with sizeable portions; think "elegant comfort" food. Our menu evolves with daily changes, and our cocktails mirror this fresh take. Come down to our corner that's tucked away in the Shops Around Lenox and be a part of the family.
The restaurant’s unique name comes from an extended essay by English art critic John Ruskin. The "lamps" refer to the seven principles of architecture: sacrifice, truth, power, beauty, life, memory and obedience. Inspired by the essay, Co-owner and Executive Chef Drew Van Leuvan recognized that these important principles are also very applicable in the kitchen as he "builds" plates.

Just so-so. Service was great1 good was not- duck was pretty good- broccoli was to be roasted and it was more boiled and super soggy. The gnocchi HD sat for a while before brought to the table as the cheese was dried up and not in a good way.

The food is absolutely stellar. Fresh and delicious. I love the salads with chicken. Tuna melt is really good. Service is good, but they seem short staffed. Also, the music is way too loud to have much conversation, you have to tell over. Otherwise, I really love everything else about this place. I go there regularly.

We sat on the patio for lunch and it was fantastic. The food was great, as usual. I switched it up and got the gnocchi and it was fantastic. Several got their usual lunch open faced tuna. Perfect day fir a patio lunch with great food.

Horrible experience at Seven Lamps. Rude hostess and even ruder manager. Our waiter took forever to take our orders and the food came out super late. Defintely will not return to this establishment nor will I recommend to friends or associates.

Every time we dine here we are pleased with the incredible service and unique and delicious food. The outdoor seating area is my favorite place to dine (weather permitting) as the inside dining area can be quite noisy on a weekend night. Great cocktails too!

Main dish was very very good. Food was tasty, well prepared, well presented, good portion.
Only thing bland was the dessert, had panacotta. Tasteless.
Main room very noisy, ended up sittingboutside by fireplace, nice.

I had remembered the food being a little better but perhaps the mortadella macarons affected my perception of the whole meal. They were described as sweet/savory but were far to the sweet size. Food runners were quick, and was the food itself.

We love this place! I can't say enough good things about it. If we could give 10 stars for service and cocktails we would. We always ask for Kristen as our server. Nothing against the other professionals there, we just love Kristen. She treats us like family everytime.

Their cocktails are wonderful. My favorite has always been the "Cup of Booze" (mostly bourbon with all kinds of other yummy stuff). That's now off the menu but everything else is great too.

The Mussels are a must do. I'm partial to the trout. My husband always gets whatever the pasta is that day.

The seating is community tables. Most have seating for 6. So unless that's your party number, you'll likely be seated with another party or two...the more the merrier. It's a fun atmosphere, with great food, beverages, and service.

There's even an off menu hamburger if you have picky teenagers with you (as we often do).

We couldn’t be more pleased with our experience. My wife and I split a generously portioned endive salad with grapefruit and various sprouts with a crisp slightly vinegary dressing. My home made tortellini with ricotta and her trout were expertly prepared. Our waitress was knowledgeable and engaging. We shall definitely return.

It was significantly overcrowded and the host staff was doing a lousy job of getting people seated and taken care of. Our reservation meant nothing. We made and 8:30 pm reservation, but they did not honor it.

There were no tables even close to ready. The food selection is sub par, and it was so loud we couldn’t even hear each other despite sitting right next to each other.

I don’t think we’ll be back, but if we do, it definitely will NOT be on a Friday or Saturday night.

We ordered the pairing menu but asked for the check after waiting close to two hours for the main course. People came and left around us that order the same thing. We got charged $230 for the soup, gnocchi and 4 cocktails. The waitress couldn’t comprehend what was wrong. I’ve been here a few times before and food is always amazing but highly recommend not going for busy night such as Valentine’s Day.

I was disappointed. We have been to this restaurant numerous time and have always had very good meals and service. I made the appointment for Valentine's Day at least two weeks before February 14, 2019. I reconfirmed my reservation as requested. I also received a phone reminder. In all of our communication I was never told that there would be a fixed price menu. We arrived at the restaurant and to our surprise we were handed a special menu. Unfortunately, I was not able to eat most of what was on the menu. We were told we could get an alternate menu at the bar but there was no room at the bar. So much for making reservations. We were finally seated outside. It was a cold evening and despite the heat lamps, we were forced to eat with our coats on. The wait staff looked harassed and were running around all evening. Either they weren't prepared to serve outside or the restaurant was short staffed. As I said, we were very disappointed.

I was in town last minute and this turned out to be a great place for the 1st Valentine diner with the most Beautiful woman in the world.

The food is delicious. I had the calamari and black linguine. The dish is amazing and . I don't like spicy food of any kind. This dish has poblano peppers which set my mouth on fire. I will request that the hold on the peppers next time, and I will definitely be back.

I thoroughly enjoyed my dinner experience at Seven Lamps! I brought my boyfriend here for a celebratory dinner and everything was delicious from drinks to appetizers to entrees. We made a reservation on a busy Saturday night and were sat right away. It is a communal table experience which makes for a relaxed, fun vibe. Lovely ambiance and excellent menu selections. We will definitely return!
