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.

Wonderful, delicious, welcoming...the best we have experienced in the Berkshires!

We made reservations and were welcomed in. The menu is delightful and we were interested to note we had the option of having half-plates with all the entries. We did not take advantage of this after much discussion ... the food was too good. We started with a wonderful pate plate to share. My... read more

Directly on our way to or from Tanglewood ,this restaurant is an enjoyable culinary stop. We spend a lot of time in France and appreciate the passion and attention to detail found everywhere in "the hexagon". With a Breton chef and his American (but European trained) wife and pastry chef the intelligence, experience and chemistry are right and they provide... More

Food was amazing, dealt with gluten free requirements perfectly, met several visitors and locals during dinner, which added a whole new dimension to our experience, in addition to a long list of things we need to do when we return!

We loved the experience. Innovative cuisine, user friendly wine list and graded "pours", friendly staff. Cannot say enough about this very special restaurant.

We were really looking forward to dinner here thinking this would be a real gourmet treat but we found the food just so-so for the price we paid.The risotto was a little watery and the bland taste was not what I had hoped so I only ate about half. The salad in my opinion was okay, nothing exceptional, however the... More

Couldn't get reservations on a Saturday night but was told that the porch seating was first come, first served. We arrived a bit before opening after the play in Stockbridge but were invited in and seated on the porch. Wait staff were most courteous, well trained, and accommodating. Food was outstanding as was the time between servings. The salmon and... More

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
