Great atmosphere, friendly staff, great service and awesome value. Bantam Bistro offers different specials throughout the week and has a great 3 hour happy hour each night. This is one of favorite places for a date night.

Recently met several friends here for drinks and decided to order a few appetizers. We settled into one of the large comfortable booths with subdued lighting. The atmosphere here is classy, well appointed and yet casual -- you won't be asked to wear a tie or jacket. It's quiet and peaceful -- no loud music or background jazz piano, or... More

My husband and I went here for dinner because we were staying at the inn. I had the lobster dinner, it was very good. I added a side salad, it was good but had way to much dressing. Husband had the filet minion. It was cooked perfectly, but was small, I don't think it was 8oz. Strawberry daiquiri was nice... More

We went to the Bantam Bistro on a Wednesday night. We were pleased to learn of their seniors special- 50 percent off a main course. We had the fried calamari and artichoke and spinach dip as appetizers. For main course two of us had the burgers - which were excellent. As was the fried Char, steak, roast chicken and the... More

It's a beautiful place. But we were very disappointed with this year's brunch. Went with same family members as last year and enjoyed it. This time, the 2 women greeting people were extremely disorganized. Although we had a reservation, we had to wait for 35 mins. to be seated. There were tables waiting to be cleared and I was told...

Sorry to read about your experience at the Bistro on Mother's Day. With the volume of guests it was not possible to restrict the assumed time for a sitting and the girls at the reception desk were trying to accommodate the arrivals. We had made enough provisions for early arrivals and late departures but borrowing little extra time from guest... More

We went here for happy hour to find one of the best priced menus we've ever seen. $2 draft beers (any kind) $4 glasses of wine (huge glasses), etc. The food menu is also very reasonably priced with $6 sliders (including cheese, side of fries, you name it), $7 flat bread pizzas (not our favorite), plus many more options at...

All I can say is wow. I finally had the Prime Rib (which is one of the weekly specials--Monday night to be exact) at the Bantam Bistro. This steak was so tender that my teeth were upset that they didn't have to masticate much at all LOL--Man,this is almost comparable to a titillating moment. And the vegetables--I never thought I...

This was an incredibly disappointing Valentine's Day, my friends. The Litchfield Inn advertised a prix fixe Valentine's Day special that we thought that would result in a romantic atmosphere, a New England inn feeling, and lingering over a nice selection of wines. We dressed up and headed out. Instead of an elegant restaurant, we entered into a "bistro" that could... More
