After reading reviews and planning on what for us is a "high end" event, I'd like to think that I walk in with a neutral viewpoint to build on, but of course that's not true. One expects 5 stars when booking a reservation for dinner at a higher end restaurant, so I was a little concerned when the experience started.... More

appetizer poor quality, delivered after main course, menu did not accurately describe the food, had to return frozen chocolate souffle which had no trace of chocolate. The servers made no attempt to compensate for the mistakes in service, and showed little knowledge of the menu items.

We hosted a large brunch for our recently married daughter and new son-in-law. Everything was outstanding! The inn has been very tastefully refurbished, and the restaurant is excellent. They went out of their way to cater to special dietary concerns (and indicated that they do this whenever they are made aware of issues. Our guests have contacted us over the... More

Loved the restaurant from the moment we entered. Had been here under its previous guise as the dining room of the Lord Jeffery Inn of Amherst and it's much more intimate and elegant now. Our server (Serena) was prompt with all our requests and was able to provide answers on all our questions. Our choices for food were delicious, I... More

I ate at the Lord Jeffrey Inn with four co-workers on a Thursday night. The ambiance of the restaurant is lovely. Once we were seated, it took the waiter a very long time to get over to us and then the drinks from the bar took a long time to get to us. The food was very good - I... More

We came for brunch on a warm Sunday morning. Sat outside on the verandah and had a wonderful brunch in the sun. Very relaxed atmosphere, excellent food, attentive but not intrusive service. Will certainly come back.

I always choose the lord Jeff when I need a nice restaurant in Amherst to take clients or talk business. Food is good and the atmosphere is nice. Bbq ribs are fantastic. Just wish they used better LED bulbs kinda white light that's annoying. Apart from that grade A

30Boltwood is a lovely space, both elegant and relaxed. The menu is small but interesting. Our dinner started with good drinks and a bread basked full of interesting choices. The butter, though properly softened, had an unfortunate rancid off taste. Small side salads arrived well dressed with mustard-based vinaigrette. My entree of pork loin and spaetzle, though delicious, arrived barely... More
