We left the stodgy dining room at Red Lion Inn because the service was abrupt and arrogant. My wife suggested Once Upon Table in the Mews right down the block. We were promptly seated and had a very pleasant waitperson who described the specials and answered our questions. The salads and entrées were plentiful and delicious. Being that it was... More

I like this cozy little restaurant. A friend was taken back by the request to add our names to the chalkboard outside, However, we were seated promptly. Our server was very friendly. I love the cous cous salad they serve with the sandwiches. A more generous portion would be welcomed, I ordered the salmon cake with avocado sauce. Delicious. Will... More

Recently took a trip to the Berkshires in western Massachusetts to see a Tanglewood performance. Made reservations for 6:30 p.m. on a Friday evening when there were performances around. Appreciated the thoughtfulness of the waitress in asking us if we were going to an event that evening. Once Upon a Table is small and down one of the many alleys... More

Four of us had lunch there. We each picked something different, 2 from the specials list and 2 from the standard menus. None of us were disappointed in the quality and quantity of the food (it was not huge portions for a change).

Conveniently located in the heart of Stockbridge, this small restaurant offers a varied menu. You may have to wait for a table, so try to get there either before or after the mid-day crush.

Food is AMAZING, service was horrible. I walked in to a chaotic mess. The staff were snapping at each other and no one helped me even after I got my food. I could have walked out without even paying! The waiter that took my credit card was frustrated and you could easily tell that he was not happy with the... More

I'm sorry to hear that you had experienced what you refer to as "terrible service", i would like to point out that my restaurant, like all small businesses, is staffed with human beings - who have bad days and yes, make mistakes. We take tremendous pride in our service - always have, always will; and a quick perusal of the... More

Had a tasty, last-minute lunch out on the patio-alley. One of the few places in Stockbridge where you can do that.

Had reservations elsewhere, but didn't really want formal dining. Walked down Main Street looking for another choice and stumbled on the best choice I could have made in a long time. My husband went in and made reservations on the spot. The dining room is small and cozy. The staff couldn't have been nicer and the waiter was a hoot.... More

Great place to get lunch. The menu had some interesting items and a good beer and wine selection. I had the Ruben and we shared the muscles. The staff was fun a professional. Its a small place and they will most likely have a short wait, so plan ahead. sooo worth it!!

My experience with this restaurant was bad from making the reservation to walking out the door. The person I talked to over the phone was so condescending and patronizing, I should have told him never mind. But we did go, and the service and food didn't match the outward charm of this restaurant. The beef tenderloin was overcooked, and the... More

Please accept our apologies for a disappointing experience - we try so hard to make sure that everyone leaves our restaurant happy, but clearly we did not meet your expectations. As you may have noticed, it was an extremely busy night and to tell the truth - and perhaps acknowledge the obvious - it was not our finest night in... More
