Bedford Village Inn Ratings and Reviews

We love the BVI. In November, they hold bonfires on Friday and Saturday nights with live music, great cocktails, hay bales to sit on, and flannel blankets to get cozy in. We have gone to that for my birthday for the past 4 years and are never disappointed in our decision. This time, we ate in the Dining Rooms for a more fine dining experience. We each had a different cut of steak, it was one of the best steaks I have ever had. Incredibly flavorful and melted in your mouth (I had the center cut filet). We finished with the peanut butter souffle and the pumpkin tiramisu. The souffle was amazing. We had a reservation for 2 at 7:15 and it took awhile for our meal to get going, it seemed maybe like they got busier than expected or were temporarily short staffed, but once we started to get served things were back on track. We were there for 2+ hours. We will definitely be back.

Our dinner was great. We were at the BVI for our anniversary dinner and they had a nice little card and decorations ready for us at the table. It was a nice touch. The little details in their menu and the overall dining experience is why we keep going back.

It's a good restaurant, but it let's itself down with not having a reasonable dress code. It was my wife's birthday, so we both dressed up. About halfway through our meal another young couple were seated at an adjacent table. He wore jeans, and a T-shirt with a sweater. What she was wearing was very trashy. It was like they were going out to the local pizza restaurant. So it did not feel like we were eating at a fine restaurant. This place is used for weddings, so it's not like people should know what is suitable to wear, and what is not. I'll be taking my wife elsewhere in future.

My husband and I went to the Bedford Village Inn for our 6th wedding anniversary (we had our reception there in 2010!). For us, it's a nostalgic place...but truly a gem for anyone looking for a cozy, romantic, high end dining experience. There are a few different rooms in which you can dine - we were in a smaller room with only a handful of tables and a fireplace. It was absolutely lovely. The service was outstanding and the food was delish. We left that evening with the decision that it's "our spot" for every anniversary celebration in the future. Thanks BVI for making it a special night!

The service was excellent but the menu was somewhat limited. Food was very good and the ambiance is exceptional. This was for mother in law's 91st birthday. The staff went out of their way to accommodate her physical disability and to make the day memorable.

This was our first time at the inn and we were very impressed. The atmosphere was lovely and the noise level was very low - something we greatly appreciate. Our server was wonderful and gave us just the right amount of attention. We really appreciated that the server did not clear our plates until everyone had finished eating. That's something you expect in Europe but seldom get here. Kudoos

I made a reservation here for a business dinner. The atmosphere is very upscale, and very quiet. Service was prompt, friendly, and very knowledgeable of the menu. The food was delicious and very flavorful. Presentation was wonderful. I had the veal porterhouse, which tasted a little like pork. Very tasty! We also got a cheese and prosciutto platter as an appetizer, and I also tried the lobster bisque, which is served with a large spoonful of chopped lobster meat to stir in. We were all very pleased with the experience. I would love to dine here again.

My and I chose Bedford Village Inn for our anniversary dinner and could not have been happier! The quality of the food was second only to the great service. As soon as we arrived for dinner (20 minutes early for our reservation), we were immediately seated and the host wished us a happy anniversary. Our waitress, Katie, was fantastic and did a great job explaining the menu options to us. She was very friendly and checked on us throughout the meal to make sure everything was perfect. My wife and I will most certainly be back to Bedford Village Inn again soon and will give our highest recommendations to friends and family!

Fine "New England" dining at its best! I can't say enough good things about the quality of the food, service and setting... My only nits are that I found the dining room a smidge too dark (tho no flashlights needed to read the menu), and some of the artwork wasn't my speed.
The wine list is extensive and can be a bit overwhelming; I did not inquire about a sommelier.
Otherwise, our table was ready ahead of our reservation time, the room we were in was quiet, our meals were prepared perfectly... For us it was a special occasion and they definitely made it feel special!

The Bedford Village Inn is very charming and a great setting. The elegant farmhouse renovation into several restaurants was very unique. The food was excellent, especially the dessert called the Chocolate Box. Our server was excellent, charming, and a great conversationalist. She was new (3 weeks on the job), but very competent and enjoyable. We would definitely recommend for a special evening and ambience.

My wife and I went here for Sunday Brunch on our anniversary. The food was outstanding, and everything about it was such a lovely experience. They had even decorated our table for us, and sent up a special dessert. I would highly recommend Bedford Village Inn. It was truly memorable.

Though we enjoyed our get together,we were dissapointed re location having asked for seating in the garden room. I understand that that room was booked for a shower and we were notified prior to arrival. I want to note that the chairs at out table were not very comfortable and the seats arranged against the wall made getting in and out tough. Overall, quite good but not over the top as at our previous gatherings at BVI.

Truly enjoyed a wonderful a 45th wedding anniversary dinner. Because we had a gift certificate, we indulged ourselves. The food and service were excellent. Our server was exceptionally great! Very friendly and knowledgable. Other servers were always there to refresh water, remove plates, etc. We enjoyed a wonderful wine and were pleased to have a good value on that as it was a fairly expensive wine but on special that day. Setting was lovely. We have been to BVI several times and enjoy all of their eating venues. Our only small complaint, and not everyone would be bothered by this, was that the AC made the room quite chilly for us. That is a very personal issue and others in the room did not seem to be bothered. The meals are expensive but well worth the treat for a special occasion for us. We would recommend it to anyone wanting a special meal and willing to pay a bit more than the average local restaurants.

BVI restaurant is elegant dining without pretentious airs. We and the wait staff were relaxed and could have some fun and laughs. The meals were beyond compare and better be as the price reflects the food and preparation. Not overpriced but as it should be.

The food was excellent, as was the atmosphere. However, we were really disappointed in the service. I believe our waiter was Omer. He was friendly enough, but he was very slow and seemed to have missed opportunities to inform us of all of the specials, etc.
It took a while for drinks to arrive. He brought us bread, but forgot butter and brought it over at least 5 minutes after the bread came. He never came back to check on us and as the evening went on he became more scarce.
As I said, he was cordial and nice, but we felt the service didn't match the nature of the expense.
We will definitely come back again-everything else was great.

This restaurant's excellent reputation is warranted. Excellent service but it is a very expensive menu. We notice they do have an excellent, less expensive brunch, that we will try next. The venue is superb. I'm always surprised by how people dress at such lovely restaurants. Surely this location deserves a shirt or nice dress, not shorts!!

Service is always great at BVI, right from the minute you walk in. They have opened the new Grand Hotel on the same property which has a wonderful "Lobby Bar" and great for a couple of pre-dinner cocktails. It is a short walk across the grounds to the main Inn for dinner. The menu has excellent choices for dinner that will meet most diners tastes. The quality and presentation are always excellent. Service is very attentive yet not excessive. this is my "Go To" place.

We had one of the most surprising experiences ever. Having been around the world many times and having dined at very renouned restaurants, we thought the BVI restaurant was just another overrated place--we were so wrong! The restaurant was amazingly top notch. It had ambience, fine food, quality and professional service. All the dishes were fantastically prepared with top quality ingredients- every bite was a pleasure. It's not often that you come across such a unique dining experience. Kudos to the Chef! We will see you again soon!

We have been going to the BVI since it opened. We were slightly disappointed by the menu selection and the quality of our meals. The BVI of today is not the same as the BVI that originally opened. The quality of the food has gone done and the menu selection is limited. We are no strangers to the BVI. In the past we celebrated New Year's Eve, Christmas Eve, held our daughters wedding reception there and attend other functions. It is unfortunate that the BVI is no longer that place for special events. I feel there are other restaurants in the Bedford-Manchester area that offer better menu selection, higher quality meals and a similar atmosphere.

It was our first wedding anniversary and we could not have chosen a better place to celebrate. The table was decorated, the wine specials fabulous, the food out of this world, and the service amazing. From start to finish it was everything we could have hoped. We will be back again soon, this time as an 'old' married couple!
