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.

The chef is extraordinary in his food preparation. I have been there several times and each visit is as good as or better than the last. It is without a doubt one of the, if not the, best restaurant in the Berkshires. The menu offers full or half entree's. In addition the staff is very friendly, courteous, knowledgeable and efficient.... More

Nothing too spectacular. Their web site made it sound better than it was. The food seemed to be ok just by reading the menu, in reality, it was just ok.

Food here is excellent, vaguely French and substantial. I especially liked the option of ordering half-portions. Allows one to order a largish appetizer--I had the pate plate--and then smaller main course. For us ladies, a full appetizer and half-portion of main course is often enough. I had the steak; four nicely thick slices, and it was more than adequate. Took... More

too expensive for what they offered. Small portions. Nice ambiance and fairly good service. The food was good but not special and the prices were high.

There are two rooms. We were seated in the back room where there are five intimate tables. One of the tables was populated by a family with young children. We ordered the pates for starters which were delicious, although we had to order more toast points for the quantity served (it was so good we wanted to eat it all).... More

The restaurant is chef owned so you know the food is going to be great and it is. They use as much as possible from local resources. The pastry chef is French trained and the desserts are great too. The atmosphere is pleasant and the staff is friendly and courteous.

I do not usually write reviews on trip advisor but after a visit to another disappointing Berkshire restaurant, I realized how consistently excellent our meals at Chez Nous have been. We have enjoyed many excellent, leisurely meals here over the past few months , so want to give credit where credit is due! Go to Chez Nous. You will not... More

This restaurant is crowded with appreciative diners because the food is created by 3 French chefs (one being the owner). The rolls were served first then the entrees. All of our table enjoyed either lamb or beef with excellent sauce. We had the half portions so that we had room for the outstanding dessert. The waitresses were friendly and efficient.
