Grilled Octopus, Artic Char, Kale salad - all incredible. The chef uses chive flowers and dill in the most innovative ways. Truly one of the best restaurants I've ever been to. (note - the Rhubarb berry crisp was not traditional, low on the crisp, mostly...More

We had a great meal here and the setting is very nice. Service very good. Prices quite high but that is in many places in The Berkshires. Would come again.

We arrived on time for a reservation made over a week prior-- and were seated in the back next to the wait station with staff hurrying by around us the entire time. Not many options or much creativity for non meat eaters.

Food and service are excellent ! Very good alternative to standard “burger style, always same type of food” restaurants in the area. Wine list is long and reasonable. Nice bar with nice cocktails too.

Liked the atmosphere and service was impeccable. College town ambience was nice and the menu fairly ambitious, impressed with overall quality and found many unique options that made the experience stand out coming from California.

I don't know about proximity to the theater. We were both wearing jeans; the deck is completely casual. It appeared that the inside is business casual, as well, e.g., no swim cover-ups, tank tops, et al.
