Description: Chez Nous is a chef- and pastry chef-owned operation where the focus is on real, seasonal ingredients prepared in both modern and classic ways. We offer half portions of many items, to encourage lots of tasting and variety, and we take care to prepare as many items gluten-free and dairy free as possible, leaving lots of choices for everyone. Our 1841 house has charm and comfort, and our newly-renovated bar is the perfect place to have a local craft beer, wine from our award-winning list, or a creative cocktail, along with bar snacks, our famous pate, or anything from our dinner menu.

Casual but elegant ambience, excellent service, and good food prepared with skill and love make Chez Nous a superior Berkshires dining experience.

Service and food are consistantly excellent at this charming restaurant. I enjoy the entree half portions which make it possible to enjoy an appetizer and/or a dessert. This restaurant never disappoints.

Having recently dined at Chez Nous on our annual trip to Tanglewood we were sorely disappointed with the menu selection and food preparation at what had beed a top restaurant. The menu is limited to six entrees (2 pork, 2 fish, 1 lamb, and1 veg.) We chose the trout and it was tasteless, not even lemon was served with it.... More

We are so sorry that you were disappointed with your recent experience at our restaurant. We are confused, however, since we haven't had a pork dish on the menu all summer. We also certainly have plenty of lemons, or extra lemon vinaigrette (the sauce for the dish), to offer with fish. We have changed to a smaller menu format, it's... More

This restaurant came highly recommended and the food was indeed superb. The ambiance is pleasant and inviting. The menu includes "half entree" dishes which make dinner far more affordable than anticipated. I was pleasantly surprised by the relatively inexpensive bill. My only gripe is that the service was painfully slow. Even getting the check took more than 10 minutes. Our... More

Thanks so much for your well-balanced review of our restaurant, we really appreciate it! Summer is crazy and while we have reduced our menu and change it daily in order to help expedite service and respond to the summer crowds, things can get backed up for sure at different times of the night. We will keep pushing to go faster... More

We stopped for dinner on a Sunday night while traveling from Boston to Syracuse. We sat outside after a brief wait and had a fantastic meal. Our server Max was very knowledgeable and gave excellent descriptions and recommendations. The summer selections were beautiful to look at and had flavors we don't normally get. They offer small plates which obviously caters... More

We've been going to Chez Nous since it opened and we are always glad to return. The menu constantly changes and the food is always well cooked and interesting. The service is friendly, attentive but not intrusive. Since our last visit they have introduced half portions which is a great idea since it means you can get an appetizer, 1/2... More

We enjoyed a lovely dinner at Chez Nous. The food and wine were delicious, and the service was attentive and gracious. Chez Nous was a quick walk across the street from the Chambery Inn where we were staying.

From the host who seats you, to the waitress who expertly takes your order and makes informed suggestions to the owners wife who stops by to say hello, everything is perfect about the service. Then there is the amazing food and wine. My husband and I shared the mixed pate plate. Perfection, and plenty big enough for two to share.... More

Having been to Chez Nous before we were pleased again by our latest experience. As a couple we appreciated being seated in a small room with few tables so we could have easy conversation. The service was friendly and efficient with no slip ups. Also, as a follower of the World Cup had to compliment the staff who searched out... More

My experience at this restaurant has been very warm with excellent food. They have been so busy this season and the food is wonderful and the wine list is excellent. The half order option is a rare thing to find in the Berkshires. The staff is at your command and Coleman the maître di will find any wine style you... More
