They don't take reservations for small parties but we were able to get a small table off the main dining area (by the bar) at 6 pm on Saturday (noise level was low to moderate so not an issue). The service was excellent and the food was very good. The menu has both standard and elegant entrees and portions are generous. The deserts (blueberry cobbler and a gluten-free chocolate moose cake) were excellent. Prices are quite reasonable for what you get. We would definitely consider coming back again if in the area.

An upscale setting to hear live jazz, we love to visit this place for dinner when there is live music in this intimate setting. The menu is diverse with something for everyone, and we have not had a bad meal. While it certainly isn't cheap, we enjoy the setting for music and dinner. The whole family can find something yummy to eat and enjoy the music.

Had high expectations based on other reviews; but, we were very disappointed. I cant figure out how a chef can make goat cheese tasteless; but, the chicken breast stuffed with goat cheese and asparagus had no flavor (even with some sort of vegetable based sauce.) Mashed potatoes were runny, and the vegetables had way too much oregano!!! Service was friendly, but lame. We had to ask for iced tea refills and then had to ask for ICE for the tea. We would have been better off at 5 Brothers Pizza joint.

Anytime I go to the Berkshires I choose Castle Street Cafe. Their food is fresh and innovative with a seasonal menu. There is always something different on the menu. Staff is friendly and informative. Wonderful ambiance.

we returned after a year for another Tanglewood visit and had pleasant memories of this restaurant. the staff are nice and pleasant but the food was not as we had remembered. My appetizer, a portobello mushroom, spinach, tomato, was promising but had too much dressing on it. My companion had a simple green salad which was fine. we both ordered fish dishes (salmon and trout) and were very disappointed. The fish dishes were served with too much of a lemon flavored sauce, the fish was bland and did not seem fresh. My salmon dish was served with quinoa, served cold rather than warmed so it added nothing to the dining experience. Overall, disappointing food, pleasant atmosphere and service but not certain it is worth another return visit.
