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.

Country French Bistro Off Mass Pike

Cozy dining rooms and outdoor tables marked by good food and attentive service. Small or full-size portions enable you to taste a variety of flavored, and wonderful desserts. Ask for a table away from obnoxious New Yahkas.

First time here. Excellent service and delicious food! Full dishes are pricey, but half dishes were quite satisfying and good quality.

What an incredible find! A first class restaurant with pub prices. The menu was amazing as was the preparation and presentation. We were only able to get an early reservation at 5:00, so we enjoyed the dining room while it was relatively quiet. The activity picked up quickly. We were not seated in the main dining, but in the smaller,... More

limited menu. Ran out of special signature short rib dish at 7 pm. Recommended the overpriced serloin steak which was so veiny we sent 3 dishes back. Finally settled for the baby lamb chops which were very good. Owners claimed the steak on a new meat purveyor. ( likely story). Will not go back again!

I wanted to like this restaurant. I really, really did. Visiting the Berkshires for the first time, everyone told us we needed to try Chez Nous. The proprietor of our B&B, the bartender at the Red Lion in Stockbridge, locals we ran into: all agreed Chez Nous was the place for local haute cuisine. First, the service was very slow.... More

We visited Chez Nous several years ago during an annual visit to Tanglewood and were not overly impressed, but we decided to give it another try and were pleasantly surprised to find a delightful French Bistro. The menu offers an interesting variety of choices, many of which use locally produced food. Another feature my wife and I appreciated was the... More

Great meal. This was our third time at this wonderful, welcoming place. Food is wonderful and they have split portions available. Drinks are also very reasonable. All in all a great place with special food!

The French-American bistro fare was fantastic, with local ingredients and a great wine list. Tip: they didn't have any reservations available on a summer Friday night, but the patio is first come, first served. The only problem was the slow service. I know, it's supposed to be French and relaxed, but even Europeans would have been tapping their Swiss watches... More

Four of us sat outdoors on a beautiful late afternoon. The menu is innovative, with all mains available at half- or full-plate. Service was slow but the restaurant was very busy, and the wait staff were very friendly. Interestingly, the cheese plate is offered as an appetizer. Highly recommended.
