1796 Room at Bedford Springs Ratings and Reviews
Food is EXCELLENT MUAH 👌, although overpriced, as starter soups/salads and sides come al la carte. But I guess it comes with the territory/Omni hotel. Nothing with Omni in front of it is ever reasonable. Food is definitely worth making the annual trip, but that's the extent of it. The ambience is great, atmosphere is cozy as well. Would highly recommend for a "special" occasion.
Our steaks were cooked perfectly and the service was impeccable. The salads were delicious and the vegetables were cooked perfectly. All in all a good value for the money. Only issue was it was a little chilly in the restaurant and I'm not one that is normally cold. The noise level is a little loud but wasn't a problem for us.
Lisa, our server, was excellent! She was very friendly, professional, and attentive to our needs. We were pleasantly surprised with an optional menu of paired tastings of 4 courses. That is a wonderful combination of items not seen on the regular menu. We selected each pair of items (except for the Oysters Rockefeller appetizer) so that we could share the tastings. Everything was delicious! We normally wouldn't have selected the meat, cheese, bread appetizer (if it is on the regular menu), but we really enjoyed all the little extra surprises on the plate like fresh honey, pickled peppers, and raisins. We enjoyed all the flavors in the 2 salads like goat cheese which we had never tasted. Our entrees were scrumptious! The beef was so tender and juicy and had a very nice flavor. My shrimp and scallops over rice were also scrumptious. We, of course, shared our entrees. My favorite dessert is creme brule which I was happy to see was one of the desserts on this "tasting menu." My husband got the layered cake which had a mocha sauce over it. We tasted each others' desserts and enjoyed them so much. We came away from the table quite full but very happy with the over-all experience. We hope you continue to offer this tasting menu or a similar one the next time we dine with you. Yes, we shall return!
Food and service was excellent. Noise level was totally unacceptable. The large party tables, which tend to be louder, are mixed in with the 2-tops, where couples are more likely to want quiet conversation. Need to find a way to separate the two, preferably in different rooms, where the parties can try and yell over one another, while couples can enjoy a more quiet, peaceful atmosphere.
Made reservations for our 10th wedding anniversary. The food and wait staff were good for a restaurant at this price range but unfortunately our entire dinner was interrupted by repeated phone calls by a single diner at neighboring table. As other people have reviewed there is very little to absorb noise let alone someone yelling in to a cell phone. The entire restaurant was disturbed and complaining but the staff and manager did nothing to address the issue with the offending guest.
We love to vacation at Bedford Springs. This is the first time we ate at 1796 restaurant. The filet mignon was excellent, cooked perfectly and the chimichura sauce added a nice acid flavor. I had not used this on steak in the past. The service was great. The drinks were great. My only comment is the bourbon carrots needed more bourbon flavor. I think a little honey, bourbon, sriracha and cumin reduction would've added more flavor to the carrots. Otherwise it was terrific.
Staff was pleasant and professional, but for a fine dining establishment, I expected more. The food was underwhelming. We ordered the mushroom soup, which was lacking in flavor (bland) and sent back. We also ordered a salad, which was fine. My wife had the crabcakes, and I had the bone-in ribeye steak. The crabcakes were fine. The steak was cooked to temperature, but lacked seasoning (again bland). I actually asked for cracked pepper and had to add salt for flavoring. I've never had to do that to a prime steak before. Additionally, I ordered the "spring water" instead of the filtered tap water thinking it was from one of the natural springs. Instead I received an imported bottle from Italy. It was fine, just not what was expected. I also thought the server would have mentioned that they didn't carry their own. On the plus side, the wine and spirits selections were vast and appreciated. Sadly, though, I would have rather eaten at the Frontier Tavern on site as opposed to the 1796. We have plans to return to the resort next month, but next time we stay, I don't think we'll be back to the 1796.
This was the 4th time we visited the 1796 Room at Bedford Springs for dinner. The food is good. The noise level is a bit loud, it depends on how busy it is, but even at 9:00pm it is still bustling, definitely not cozy and quiet. You can also order from 1796 Room menu on the hotel room service menu which I would highly recommend if you would prefer a romantic dinner at the hotel and you are staying overnight.
We did not get our food for two and a half hours. We had to ask for everything and they were very hungry. The didn't even bring us water without asking. The waiter seemed to avoid our table to the point we were asking other Waiters for our food. In fact, everyone at the restaurant received their meal and had finished before we got our meal. The tables were all full of new guest getting their food.
I thought the meal/food was quite expensive, restaurant was clean, but not what I would call "fancy." My filet was cooked well, but I have had better quality for less cost in restaurants at home. Everything is a la carte. I specifically asked our server if the asparagus (side order) was grilled, and she said yes. However, it was not, and it ended up being quite salty as well. (There was no description of the asparagus on the menu.) My daughter had risotto which she said was good, but not great. We really enjoyed the opera torte dessert though (highly recommend)! Our server and water person were both pleasant.
The food was solid and the service venue marketing was a bit uneven. For example, we had been seated for a while before we received bread (and the restaurant wasn't full). The noise level was exceptional and distracted from enjoyable meal conversation with my husband.
The 1796 Room at the Omni Bedford Springs is a good steakhouse in a region where there are not a ton of options. It is a small room, with some nice banquette seating and well spaced tables so the evening we were there it was easy to have conversation. Our steaks were excellent and well prepared, served with a nice grilled artichoke heart. The menu is Ala carte, and everything is extra and the prices are high, especially for this area. The wine list has some nice bottles and again, the pricing is high compared to what I have paid for the same bottles elsewhere. A good special occasion place if money is no object.
This steakhouse was top notch. The service was perfect here as well and they were very quick, friendly and moving non stop to help us out.
My wife ordered the filet which was cooked to her liking and it was so delicious. It was a very meaty portion for only being 8 oz. Would highly recommend. I ordered the pork chops which was by far one of the best I have ever eaten. The prices were very reasonable as well.
Would highly recommend as well.
We can two years in a row for our anniversary weekend getaway. It was as wonderful as it was a year ago and maybe better! We ate here two nights in a row and food was exceptional! We tried different things each night and everything was spectacular! We eat out regularly and this place is definitely worth the drive! Service is personable, accommodating and great! Unique cocktails that are wonderful!! This is what a dining experience should be!! Thanks!! We will be back!
