About The Old Inn On The Green
Dining at The Old Inn on the Green is an extraordinary experience: fine wine, great food, the dining room illuminated by candles, the murmur of conversation from the other room. As Chef and Owner, Peter Platt is always firmly in charge, working to create innovative and memorable meals that are an event unto themselves. Over the past several years, the Old Inn has developed the tradition of serving a Prix Fixe menu - each Saturday evening a different four-course meal is prepared, and guests are offered a choice of two main courses as well as a choice of dessert. On other nights, the Inn offers a well rounded menu of a la carte items, with specials which change daily. The wine list is graced with a array of thoughtfully selected estate bottled wines from France, California and Italy. The dining rooms are lit entirely by candlelight and there are fireplaces in each room. Comfortably worn windsor chairs and mahogany tavern tables furnish the dining rooms.

The Old Inn On The Green Ratings and Reviews
This marvelous setting creates a sense of elegance and sophistication that is exceptional.
The service is attentive, thoughtful and unobtrusive. The food is exquisite. Something special and inventive. Strong sense of positive experimentation and gustitory delight,
A four diamond restaurant worthy of that accolade! We were three for a special occasion -- Mothers' Day. What a treat. We all opted for the Saturday, "prix-fixe" menu. While not inexpensive, it was definitely worth the price. Each of us had different apps, mains and deserts. Each of us felt that each course was among the best we ever had! Each plate was unique and it was obvious that each was prepared with both taste and presentation in mind.
This will definitely be my go-to place for special occasions in the future.
All I can say is WOW!! We found this restaurant by pure chance and are so happy we did. Looking back and trying to be critical there is little to nothing I can find. Fantastic, friendly and on point service, Incredible food expertly crafted. What more can you ask for. Oh ya, how about a 100% candle lite dining room! Well done!
My reservations were for 5:30pm. I arrived at 5:25 and walked in the door where there was no one to greet me. I asked one of the people getting tables ready if I came in the right door and he said 'kind of early huh' to which I responded 5:30. I was then told to wait at the bar to listen to a bartender treat his coworker like she was beneath him. I sat there not knowing when I would be seated or what was happening because no one bothered to speak to me.
I was finally seated at 6:00pm.
The food was amazing and if not for that, I would not recommend this place.
We have come here often over the years. Second time this year. As always the food is superb and the ambiance of the old Inn is great. You eat by candle light no other lights. Many real fireplaces so it is real cozy in winter. It is well worth the drive. We have only come on Fridays.
We had wanted to have dinner here for some time, and had high expectations. We were not disappointed. James, the maitre'd and our server (we went on a Sunday night, so he had double duty), was phenomenal. The food matched the service. I have not had a better meal in the Berkshires.
Old Inn on the Green remains the finest restaurant in SW Massachusetts/NW Connecticut. Especially in the wintertime, the restaurant exudes its colonial charm, with multiple cozy candle-lit rooms with working fireplaces, matched with an outstanding and continually varied menu. This time, the favorites were Colorado Lamb, an old standby, and steak frites - a relatively new, surprisingly conventional, yet welcomed addition to the menu. The wine list is worth perusing at length, some older gems hidden within the offerings. We had a relatively new (to us) waiter - still learning the ropes of adding to the experience of the evening. Regardless, never a disappointment. The relatively high prices (more similar to Manhattan) are the only reason we don't come more frequently, but it is our #1 place for special occasions, and to impress friends with the charms of old New England.
This continues to be the best restaurant in the Berkshires, combining terrific, unmatched atmosphere, great service and superb food. Absolutely perfect in every way. Peter Platt and Meredith Kennard and the entire staff really care about what they are doing and it shows. An absolute must when visiting or, as we do, living in the Berkshires.
We were enjoying the evening with our children who had arrived from CA. This authentic New England Inn is a favorite of ours and quickly became a favorite of our extended family. The waitstaff is knowledgable and helpful in identifying menu offerings both by content and by preparation.
The menu was diverse enough to satisfy the range of diners' needs and preferences. The quality of the food was exceptional. We frequently dine in NYC and would rate this restaurant as equal to places we have recently dined in NYC.
The presentation of the meal elements, accompanied by a quiet ambiance of candlelight and no annoying music was a relief from the hectic , seasonal hype in other establishments. We felt as if we had stepped back into a quieter, more relaxed time where we could just converse, eat, and. Enjoy being together.
We highly recommend the Old Inn on the Green at any time of the year, but there is something so special about stopping there on a snowy evening.
We've been to SF Bay area spots like Gary Danko, Chez Panise, and The F.L. This was as good as those and more romantic. While our server could use a bit more personality or humor, the wine service was spot on. We had the tasting menu and enjoyed every bite, even me who doesn't like beets. Dinner by the fireplace with only real candles lighting the dining rooms adds to the romantic spirit. The drive home this time of year is dark and unnerving, but the food makes that drive worth the risk.
Visited for my Birthday with my wife. It was love at first sight. The ambiance dining under candlelight was so relaxing and romantic. The salmon and chicken were presented in a way which you would expect to find in most exclusive restaurants. The history of this restaurant was very interesting. It was an hour and a half drive from our home but was well worth the trip. The restaurant was very quiet and was very nice not to have to raise your voice to have a quiet conversation.
Highly recommended from the ride into the rural setting and a place to go for a special occasion or for a nice night out.
We dined on a Saturday night for my birthday. We had the tasting and everything was delicious! The service was not bad, but not great either, and certainly not as good as would be expected at a restaurant with such high quality food. My biggest complaint about the service was that before ordering the tasting we told our server we weren't crazy about the dessert that was on the menu. He didn't hesitate to say we could order something else. We proceeded to order the tasting and I asked if he would like to know what we would like for dessert instead of what was listed. He said no, and that we had a few hours before we get to that point. Several hours later, he never came to ask what we would like for dessert and we were served what was listed on the menu. Overall it was a great meal, but I'm not sure it was worth the price. We've had many meals in New York for the same price or less where both the food AND the service were outstanding.
The Old Inn on the Green was a very pleasant surprise. Revolutionary War era building lit entirely by candlelight. Atmosphere was perfect for get together with friends. The food was creative and excellent. Surprising find a little off the beaten path in the Berkshires.
Always a delicious meal and top-notch service. James has an amazing memory and understands hospitality. This was only our second time but we plan on making it a monthly treat. Excellent menu--fresh, local and not ridiculously trendy like so many menus have become.
The ambiance is so different--quiet and candlelit. Not library quiet--we had a lot of laughs and lively conversation--but perfect for conversation with dinner companions. We were here in the winter last year and the roaring fire was divine.
We go here a few times a year. Two prix fixe menus to choose from. Extensive wine list, also beer and cocktails. The food is wonderful; expect to drop at least $200 for two people but well worth the $$. 1/2 price during the week. Historic, romantic, candlelight only. I highly recommend. Portions for the prix fixe chef's tasting menu are perfect, you will leave well satiated but not stuffed.
