There was no reservation available on Opentable within 3 hours of the time that I wanted to have dinner. One call to the courteous reservation desk, and I had one within1/2 hour of my chosen time. The young man re-jiggered the tables to accommodate us. The waiter David was great-probably the best young waiter I've encountered in the past 10... More

By the time we were seated we had been passed through three different sets of hands...each warmly welcoming and gracious. A diverse but in some ways simple menu came to us after being seated in a very comfortable upscale environment. We were meeting friends and conversation competed with food, but we never felt a moment of rush. Our waitress sensed... More

Food was not all that impressive...very basic and expensive for what it was. Wait staff was attentive and friendly.

Beyond my norm budget, but went with family visiting for Christmas Eve dinner. Amazing, perfect dinner, drinks, dessert. Delicious, beautiful presentation, sweet attentive waiter, ambience warm and luxurious. Truly an indulgence. I have since passed by and seen they often have a fire in a bowl out on the porch on cool nights. We were there when the fire was... More

I have visited this restaurant several times with relatives this summer. The food is good, the service is very good + unobtrusive and the covered veranda makes this a great place to watch the world go by while enjoying shade and breezes.

Met our family for a birthday dinner. Sat outside which was very pleasant. Good service. The menu is always interesting, with great starters, entrees and deserts which rotate. Always have to ask about some items as we don't recognize the names. In our minds, the best restaurant in Amherst.

At the Lord Jeffery Inn across from the Amherst, MA town common, and a stone's throw from the campus of Amherst College, you will find a wonderful dining experience. But in the nice weather you can enjoy gracious outdoor porch dining with real old gaslights to add to the ambiance. The menu is limited, but all items are cooked to... More

We have dated at this restaurant many times, however this time a review is in order. Our wonderful meal with friends was delightfully suited to all palates. As usual, I was unable to finish the entree, even though portions are European sized. Because of miscommunication in the kitchen, my remaining portion was not saved. Since we now live in town,...
