1796 Room at Bedford Springs Ratings and Reviews
The food was excellent overall, though the 22 oz. ribeye I had was not as thick as expected and not very hot when it came out. Otherwise, the truffle butter, highly recommended by our server, was very unique and worth the additional charge. The sides were good and generously portioned. We requested one of their sofa tables, which was nice but not as cozy as expected because the are located at the ends of the dining room, with the sofa seats 2 along the same side of the table, looking out to the rest of the dining room. While it is nice seating for a couple, it did not feel very private. But we got used to it as the evening went on.
This wasn't our first time at 1796 and it certainly won't be our last. The only reason why this evening didn't get 5 stars was because they seemed to have overbooked reservations, causing quite the wait for our already late (9:30) dinner reservation. That said, the staff was extremely apologetic and professional about the delay. Everything on the menu is fantastic, but this time there wasn't a single item that disappointed. We ordered the pork chops and the 18 oz filet (medium) and they were both perfectly cooked. The sides of sauteed spinach and mashed potatoes were neither too heavy nor too light - they were perfectly filling.
It's definitely a splurge, there's no cheap dinner at Bedford Springs, but it's certainly worth every penny.
Whether you're planning a romantic night or girls weekend, I definitely recommend going to 1796!
Everything was perfect. We had perfectly prepared filet and duck breast meals. I would have preferred fresh artichoke steamed over artichoke from a jar. There was hint of preserving liquid in the flavor. But crab cake, salad, bread and dinner was overall great.
This was a return trip to this restaurant. We had the same server as last visit, Michelle. She, and the rest of the staff were fabulous! Professional, warm, courteous, and had excellent knowledge about the menu. The atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable and the food was delicious!
We ate dinner @ the 1796 Room a few years ago and enjoyed the whole experience from the atmosphere to the delicious food. We were excited about going back, but I was disappointed due to the fact that my steak was tasteless and difficult to cut as was the bread. BLAH ! Then the AIR was turned on and was blowing I my face, UGH ! A gentlemen did approach our table and ask if all was going well, but I didn't want to be Debby Downer so I said nothing. Besides, what could be done @ that point ? Also, the meal was overpriced for what was served. Next time we will sit @ the Bar, order bar food and go somewhere for our "special dinner".
My wife and I went there for our anniversary, and it certainly did not disappoint. They are known for their steaks, however, have an excellent seafood selection too. Great wine and cocktails. My wife and I started with their scallops to share, which were phenomenal. We both had the 8oz Filet Mignon for our entree, cooked to perfection. Wine pairings are excellent. The dessert list was an excellent way to finish out our meal, along with a decent after-dinner Bourbon & Whiskey list. Service was perfect; our server was attentive without being burdensome.
Compared to past visits, I was completely underwhelmed. The service and ambience were still great, but the food and the value has gone way down. We both ordered the special. It was a ribeye with vegetables. First disappointment, the steak was about 1/2 inch think. It reminded me of what they give you at Hoss's. Mine was cooked okay, but my husband got medium well instead of medium rare. That was not a surprise considering the thickness. Second disappointment, I had asked for no black pepper but it was there. Third disappointment, the vegetables were significantly under cooked. Almost raw potatoes are not appealing. I'm guessing that off the menu might have been better. Either way, it was way too much money for 3-4 oz of beef and a scoop of rawish veggies.
Bedford Springs is a historical place to visit and the 1796 Room has an authentic tavern feel. That being said, the noise level is quite high so don't expect an intimate dinner with pleasant conversation as it is an effort to hear across the table. The menu prices are high sugesting a high end dining experience, yet the staff members were dressed in khakis and tennis shoes, so it is a mixed message in that regard. Our service was just okay. We waited a long while for our order to be taken and for food to arrive. Our appetizer was a goat cheese tart which I am guessing was frozen as the temp was warm on the inside and cool on the outside. We ordered lobster and crab legs, the crab legs were dry in texture, but the serving size was large and was a good value. The lobster was good, the bread was fantastic, the mixed drinks original and tasty and the wine list quite good. All in all, not perfect, but enjoyable.
We were extremely disappointed with the service at this restaurant. The waitress (Kayla) was non-attentive and did not come over to check on us - did not refill water - and when she did in fact come over to check - was somewhat dismissive to everything. To top it off, we had to wait over an hour between our salad and main course. Probably would not go back to this restaurant - even though we very much enjoy the Bedford Springs resort.
Excellent meal, professional and knowledgeable staff, delicious food, cooked to order. With dietary issues it's difficult to eat out but we felt comfortable and enjoyed ourselves. It's a little pricey (it is a resort hotel) but worth it for a wonderful dining experience!
