I'll admit, I can be a snobby foodie at times. Part of that is formal training, part just enjoying eating out, and part of it is just knowing when a good dining experience has happened. This was my second time here, as I am not often in Western Mass, but the Blue Heron makes getting out here worth it. The... More

Situated in the Old Town Hall, Blue Heron is a stunning surprise in the small town of Sunderland. From the moment you enter, you feel comfortable, welcomed, and warm. This extends throughout the experience. The beer and wine lists offer something for every taste and price point and the mixed drinks are interesting and creative. The menu offers a full... More

The restaurant is beautiful inside = apparently was the old Town Hall. We had dinner reservations for 3 (they don't use Open table for reservations which is a shame). We were seated upstairs - I wish they had asked us about preferences (I am physically challenged and did not EVEN know they had an upstairs). Once we were there they... More

Excellent food, one of the best in the area, but slightly pricey, particularly considering this is Sunderland, Massachusetts. Had a special small plate, slightly seared but mostly raw tuna...EXCELLENT! Both the swordfish and steak frites entrees were fantastic. All of the desserts are great. Hard to go wrong.

While this is one of the more expensive restaurants in this area, it has good food and an ambiance that invites celebration or romance. Portion size tends to be French.

I absolutely LOVE the fresh ricotta and honey comb appetizer (along with a martini). And I make homemade ricotta.

The Blue Heron is in a lovely old building that has been converted for restaurant use. It used to be the Town Hall! We were welcomed upon arrival and seated promptly in the main dining room within view of the bar. There was an outdoor patio but it was a bit on the hot side for outside dining when we... More

Three of us arrived with an early reservation on a Thursday night. We were seated promptly with a choice of tables. We opted for the carpeted area near the bar and fireplace. The bar is typically rather quiet and this was a good location. A house salad was fresh and tasty. The dressing was pleasant and not overpowering. One can... More
