Bedford Village Inn Ratings and Reviews

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!

The place is very nice, the atmosphere is great and the food is delicious. The service was good, but the one complaint we had was that it was SLOW! Everything was slow, how long it took to put the order in... to get bread... how long the wait was for the appetizers... even longer wait for the main course... another wait for dessert... All in all we were there 3 hours! The babysitter was not prepared for our dinner to last THIS long! This was our second visit there and the experience was very similar in terms of how long everything took. If we go another time, we'll be better prepared. We'll also make sure to let friends know it's a good place but it takes FOREVER to have your dinner.

We had previous experience at the Bedford Village Inn and it has always been excellent.
It was the first time that we had lunch there and I was disappointed by the choices.
WE also observe that the menu doesn't change from last visits.
We love the cooking of the chef. The dinner offers more choices with a good variety of wine.
We will return for late dinner for sure. In term of brunch/lunch, I will try a different place.

We have been here twice recently, once for breakfast and again for Father's Day dinner. In both instances, everything was superb, starting with the ambiance, followed by the service, then culminating in the great food. I can't recommend it highly enough.

This was our 48th wedding anniversary dinner. Made my reservation over the internet, requesting a specific table in a specific room (we have celebrated here before) which they happily complied with. Also, ordered flowers that were on the table when we arrived. One slight hiccup, the loving note I had penned to be with the flowers was missing. We both had the beef filet which was cooked to perfection. It was so tender, it cut as if it were butter. And the taste was outstanding. Desserts were sorbet and creme brule. Both were to die for. The wait staff were very attentive when needed yet left us alone for most of the evening. I highly recommend dining here, especially for those special occasions with your spouse or significant other

BVI is the ultimate romantic spot for a special occasion. We tried the multicourse menu with wine pairing. Each course was exquisite, and the wines were excellent. Service was professional and efficient. We appreciated the small touches like the anniversary card on our reserved table.

So overall the meal and attention given was superb. I had ordered medium rare porterhouse but received medium well. The staff went out of their way to ensure that I got a new cut cooked as ordered. It became a running joke and a good laugh. We had a great experience.

The food was good, although the portions have definitely gotten smaller over the years. The waiter charged us for drinks that never arrived. When we asked him to remove them from the bill he only removed one of the charges and disappeared immediately. The table next to ours had a similar problem with their bill. We have been going to this restaurant regularly for over 30 years, but sadly we will not be rushing back.
Special Occasion Favorite
We have eaten at the Bedford Village Inn many times, but not in the main dining room recently. So for our Anniversary we decided it was time to treat ourselves to the main dining room that is surrounded by glass and lovely views of the gardens. This is quiet, elegant dining with wonderful food-just perfect for a special occasion!
When I made the reservation I indicated that this was for my wife and my 40th wedding anniversary. No less than five people came over to congratulate us including two waiters, the hostess, etc. The also had a card with congratulations on the table and went out of their way to make the experience memorable. We will certainly be back and look forward to more special occasions.
Birthday dinner with family.
Fantastic place!! We were seated right away and server was at the table immediately. Service was slightly slow but understandable because they were so busy. Food was of excellent quality and cooked to perfection. I might add, we had our daughter's wedding and reception here and that was flawless as well!! We will be back.
What a great place. This is our second visit (an anniversary and a birthday) and we plan to make this a regular "special occasion" spot. Our budget limits us but this is well worth planning for. I drive a limo part-time and have recommended the BVI when clients have asked for a nice place to dine. Cute story: Our server was at the next table taking an intricate order. The bus person came up to pour water and the server, with a very discrete hand motion signaled he should go to the other side of the table first. I was the only one who caught it. It was very professional and executed flawlessly.
Old New England charm
Our head server was knowledgeable, so friendly, organized with his service. The team at the table worked very well together. Everything we ate from appetizers todessert was unbelievable. The chocolate box dessert is there signature dessert and will not disappointed the chocolate connoisseur! Highly recommend this restaurant for unbeatable service, friendliness, comfort, atmosphere, and unforgettable food!
Excellent as always!
We often pick Bedford Village Inn for birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions. It never disappoints us. They have a small, but varied menu, excellent service and a decent (but expensive) wine list. We both had the filet and both of our steaks were cooked to perfection. I had the Jonah crab cakes as an appetizer and they were superb. Jeff had the chowder, which is one of his favorites. Overall, we had a great dinner.
The restaurant was cozy and the food was amazing.
This was our first time at BVI. The atmosphere was that of a cozy inn. The waiter was very knowledgeable about the extensive wine list and pairing wine with the food we were having. He made excellent suggestions. The oysters on a half shell and the baked oyster appetizers were excellent. The hanger steak my fiancé had and the Arctic char were perfectly cooked and flavorful. All that put together made for a very special evening. We will definitely go back!
Always a favorite
I frequent the BVI but had relatives here from Panama and wanted to show them some place "typical New England" It is a beautiful place with great food, friendly people and a dessert called the chocolate bag to die for! My cousin had crab cakes and the seafood pot which he stated was delicious. We were hours there, not because of slow service just enjoying ourselves. We never felt rushed, the waiter was very skilled, and offered suggestions for us. The host took pictures for us and we had a great room by the fireplace. I"ll be back in a week for the Easter Brunch! Another tradition in my family with the BVI.
