This is the only repeat restaurant visit we have each year we return to the Berkshires.
The ambiance is fun and festive and the service is friendly and extremely competent. I've been with parties as big as 6 and as small as 2 and it's been wonderful at every level.

Thus is my favorite restaurant in Gt. Barrington. The small plates allow you to sample several dishes and the fried red onion rings and fish tacos are favorites. Last night the tacos weren't nearly as good as usual which was disappointing. Consistency is important and it is not always there at Allium. The servers could be better trained to not clear until everyone at the table is finished. It's not cheap but the food is well conceived and balanced. Just hope that the chef doesn't have the night off.

Allium has a simple, but delicious menu. One solid option- their hamburger. Another route- pick a few smaller portions and share. Kale salad really fresh! Easy, laid back atmosphere. More parking spaces around back.

Hen of the woods mushroom followed by kale salad and light battered fried chicken. Most amazing biscuit as was crunchy on outside and moist inside with wonderful flavors. Great wines as well. Fresh food and wonderful combinations.
