Try to attend on a night when there's music, which is often good. Get there early, have dinner, and kick back with a beer or a bottle of wine and enjoy. You will not be rushed. Food is perfectly respectable, though not memorable. Service is efficient and knowledgable.

We were going to a concert at the Mahaiwe Theater, so decided to try the Castle Street Café, right next door. It was a very good choice. The service was very attentive, the food very good and attractive and we had plenty of time to make the concert. They use only fresh, local products for their dishes and you can... More

From the photos and reviews on their web site we had high hopes. The reality was less than expected. Service was perfunctory and a bit lackadaisical. Most of the food was fine if not truly inspired. Presentations were decidedly prosaic. The Gazpacho was served in a chilled white bowl with nary a garnish. The steamed vegetables accompanying most entrees were... More

Loved this place! The 2 sisters who run this restaurant are affable and kind, and run a great restaurant. the food is delicious. The art on the walls is beautiful. We got to hear a wonderful jazz ensemble in the bar area on a Friday night. It was so good I went back on Saturday night,too!

Enjoyed the prix fixe Tuesday and Wednesday night special 3 course dinner. Chicken served in delicious sauce. Scallops were large and juicy in an amazing sauce. All vegetables fresh. Started off with a wonderful tomato and fresh moutzerella salad. Fresh peach cobbler. Dinner service a little too fast. next time I will tell them to slow down!

We ate outdoors, the food was lovely, and it was fun to people-watch. On a side street right near the theater; couldn't be more convenient.

They don't take reservations for small parties but we were able to get a small table off the main dining area (by the bar) at 6 pm on Saturday (noise level was low to moderate so not an issue). The service was excellent and the food was very good. The menu has both standard and elegant entrees and portions are... More

An upscale setting to hear live jazz, we love to visit this place for dinner when there is live music in this intimate setting. The menu is diverse with something for everyone, and we have not had a bad meal. While it certainly isn't cheap, we enjoy the setting for music and dinner. The whole family can find something yummy... More

Had high expectations based on other reviews; but, we were very disappointed. I cant figure out how a chef can make goat cheese tasteless; but, the chicken breast stuffed with goat cheese and asparagus had no flavor (even with some sort of vegetable based sauce.) Mashed potatoes were runny, and the vegetables had way too much oregano!!! Service was friendly,... More

Anytime I go to the Berkshires I choose Castle Street Cafe. Their food is fresh and innovative with a seasonal menu. There is always something different on the menu. Staff is friendly and informative. Wonderful ambiance.
