Lovely pre-theatre lunch

We enjoyed a fine lunch at Church Street Cafe in July, 2014, on our way to a play being staged by Shakespeare and Company. It was a hot day, so we sat indoors at a small table in the back room. The decor looked modern, yet inviting. The metal chairs look vintage, though they could become... read more

This was the old Ruiz homestead behind the Church in Old Town. My husband and I like to visit the Church Street Cafe. And, we also take a lot of people to eat some really good food. It is thoughtfully decorated. The addition to the back room and the outdoor patio make it the best place to eat in the... More

The absolute worst service, rudest and most arrogant owner, incompetent staff. HOURS to get served and no apologies, no attempt to defray our stress-we couldn't even get silvberware or a wine glass! Save yourself the heartache! There are any number of lovely restaurants in Lenox. Choose any one and you will be better off. As you can see many reviews... More

For the money I wouldn't put this on the top of the list. The food is good but the menu is expensive

The owner is always delightful and very welcoming. They try very hard to accommodate their guests. Sitting on the porch in summer is wonderful. Very pleasant inside.

One of the nicest meals we have had . Food was delicious, service was excellent and price was just right. Have been back since and will definitely go again.

Arriving in Lenox late at night I had not realized that all restaurants would be fully booked, and that you would be rebutted with an attitude. Not so this one! They were indeed full, but could not have been nicer trying to accommodate us. The ambiance was cozy, the food was excellent and the staff could not have been more... More

A delightful lunch in a town that could not be cuter. Disney needs to visit here. It was rainy and chilly the Saturday we stopped for lunch. We were seated immediately in a table by the window that was fun to see families casually walking this busy town amongst many shops and restaurants in spite of the rainy weather. There... More

We had originally tried another restaurant that was booked so this one was suggested and we weren't disappointed. I had a seafood stew special that was very good. The other's had steak, salmon, and scallops. Everyone was very satisfied with their choices. A nice dining experience. The tables are close together and the decor is okay. Outside is really nice...

We enjoyed our dinner here so much we returned the next night. It's in Lenox's main commercial area and within walking distance of several B&Bs, including ours (the Birchwood Inn.) Rabbit, duck, lamb, fish in parchment and other French standards dominate the menu. (When we commented on this, we were told the entire kitchen is French.) Each main dish had... More
