We tried the chef's 5-course dinner selection (nothing that wasn't on the menu) with wine pairings. Overall the food was very good -- the risotto was the best course! -- and a couple of the wine pairings really shone, especially the Malbec from Washington State. It was wonderful fun to have a surprise chocolate souffle with candle along with our... More

Beautiful dining room, with nicely restored hardwood floors and elegant furnishings in a well-restored old inn. It's pricy for the area, with entrees in the $30-40 range. Although very creative, I found the dishes a little too complex, with 6-8 major ingredients each. Also, note that the portions are small, but beautifully presented. I enjoyed the meal, but I wouldn't... More

I expected "good." I did not expect " excellent." But I could not be more pleased with the outstanding, smiling service and remarkable menu. The food was unfussily creative. I was particularly impressed with a seared scallop offering, which presented the bivalve with lovely vegetables and a mini rasher of especially cured bacon. One gets the feeling that everyone cares... More

We have chosen Bartlett Pear Inn to feed the conference attendees three years in a row. This year, co-owner Alice Lloyd will speak about their secrets for keeping customers coming back again and again and making this Easton's NUMBER ONE restaurant on Trip Advisor. The food is delicious. The service is warm. The presentation is art.

I usually do not write reviews, but my experience was so disappointing that I feel compelled to speak out. First the good: Justin the mixologist at the bar is a wizard at mixing a drink and quenching a thirsty palate. He is knowledgeable, thoughtful and a pleasure all around. I recommend a drink with Justin and perhaps an item off... More

We arrived well before our reservation in order to experience the special cocktail menu mentioned in other reviews. The bartender on duty as not the inventor of the cocktails and thus was quite inexperienced in preparing the cocktails. They took longer to arrive, but were well worth the wait. Our dinner was a mix of dinner specials and items off... More

Spending the weekend in Easton we decided to have Saturday night dinner at the Bartlett Pear Inn. Having experienced it we know why it is rated number one by TripAdvisor. We were seated in front of the small fireplace which was attending throughout our meal. The service was top notch! We both had the pork which was a pleasure to... More

My husband and I had read the reviews in the Washingtonian Magazine, and we were not disappointed. The food was beautifully presented and outstanding in quality. The service was fully equal to the food. Kelsey, our waiter, was personable and competent

We always dine here for the special occasion. The chef trained under the best in DC, NY and CA and is absolutely their equal. Exceptional food and service. Expect a fine dining experience. Intimate and hip. Not for kids or the quick eat and run crowd. Never a disappointment. Pricey, but in line with what you would pay in DC.

We have a weekend house on the eastern shore of Maryland. The Bartlett Pear Inn rated the number 25 spot on the Washingtonian magazine's top 100 list of restaurants this year ; we decided to make a reservation with family in town for a holiday visit. We were seated in front of the lovely newly restored fireplace in the main... More
