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.
A Brunch to Remember
This brunch was fabulous! The specials were beautifully presented and the desserts (Chocolate Bag and the Souffle) were out of this world! We highly recommend this establishment.
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.
lovely experience all around
There for restaurant week lunch. Wish I had booked more meals. Wonderful menu, terrific food. Setting is lovely.
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!
Had great offerings. Three course meal was absolutely delicious...an evant!
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.
We arrived on time for our reservation the and we were seated immediately. Service from start to finish was perfect. Food was excellent. One more star should be added to class rating. Thank you for a perfect night!
WE were celebrating a Birthday and found a nice table by the fire decorated with a Birthday card waiting . As always the food was excellent and the wine list outstanding. We had a fish special and duck for our main courses. The duck was tender and done perfectly. Our waiter, Fouad was a first rate professional and very welcoming. At hos suggestion we shared a souffle with ice cream r dessert which was the best we had ever had. All in all it was a great evening at the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion.
Once Every 10 Years
Service was excellent, ambiance was nice but I can only justify spending that much money for anniversary dinner every 10 years. The food was good but I have had better at a more reasonable price. The setting was quiet it being a Monday night and enjoyed the time with by bride and paying extra for this setting is worth the extra cost. See you in 2026!!

Portobello mushroom Napoleon is my new favorite item on the menu! Such a wonderful blend of flavors and an ample portion allowing for a doggie bag. Giannone chicken never disappoints as well.
I've been coming here a lot most recently. Wonderful atmosphere and the food and service are second to none in the area.
Had the pleasure of dining here last week and was blown away by the steaks! I had the ribeye and my wife had the fillet and both were cooked perfectly. We enjoyed some of their cocktails and will definitely be returning soon.
Not just for special occasions.
Second time her dining. Been here for functions and loved it and love it for a night out to. Doesn't need to be a special occasion, you can go to the tavern and have a burger!!!
This place was recommended by a colleague and did not dissapoint. Both the service and the food were incredible and well worth the drive up from Boston. What a beautiful property and we will be back when the new hotel opens!
Great as Always
We love coming here because of the quality of food and always exceptional service. The Pot Au Feu is always fantastic and I would recommend Corks of you are there when it is open. A Gem in Bedford!

Me and my fiancé loved the whole atmosphere. Best weekend. Everything was great.
Ordered same fabulous meals we had a month ago - results were Very different - but still one if our fav places!
A preferred nearby venue for entertaining guests.
We are always happy to have a visitor, as it gives us an excuse to return, for the manyth time, to enjoy good food, gracefully served, in the quiet and elegant surrounding of this old New England inn. It's pricey, but we don't do it every day!
Great ambience, very pleasant
We were most fortunate to sit in the room with the fireplace. Although the garden room is equally as enjoyable. We were there when they were serving from their brunch menu. Every good selection of breakfast/lunch dishes. Excellent. And the service was excellent.
I won a gift certificate for the Bedford Village Inn at an auction. My wife and I went for brunch/lunch. We enjoyed every aspect of dining at the Bedford Village Inn that we decided not to use our gift certificate. We decided to save it so we could come back on another occasion.

Lots of great brunch choices. Hard to decide what to choose. Everyone's meal was very good.
The bone-in sirloin had good flavor but was pretty tough. The manager replaced it with a filet which was only as tender as the sirloin should have been. The filet did not compare to any filet I have ever had. In fact, the Texas Roadhouse filets I can cut with my fork. I was hoping for the best steak I could possibly have considering the cost. We were also surprised at the chicken dinner. It sounded great on the menu. It came with everything listed but it was a fairly small piece of chicken. The sweet potato slurry was very tasty but there was barley any of it, on the plate. Fancy is nice. Ambience is also nice. But, I like my plate to fill me. I never have dessert when dining out. I'm always full. We got dessert.
Wonderful food; lovely service
We had another great meal at the Bedford Village Inn. One of our members was gluten-free and the restaurant handled her preference with ease. The waitress was absolutely first-rate, pleasant, but not intrusive. All in all, a wonderful evening.
Reception and waitress pleasant. Disappointed in nearly cold scallops on caesar salad. First time WE had to pack our meal to go in a PAPER CONTAINER. This flimsy container would not even be good to hold a sandwich never mind my husband's meatloaf and veggies. Not the service we're accustomed to having dined at BVI for over 10 years.
Wonderful dining experience
The food was excellent and the service was very professional. We requested a table by the fireplace and it was awaiting us upon arrival. The oysters, in particular, were outstanding.
I have to first mention our server Omar, he made the evening even better than I could have hoped for. The food was perfectly prepared and served. Their wine list is to dream about. Attentive and polite staff. Our meal lasted 3 hours and we were never made to feel that we needed to hurry up and leave. I will be a life long fan of the BVI!
