Great place to splurge, if you can afford it. Near Tanglewood.

“Outstanding in every way!”
Reviewed February 5, 2012

The service is impeccable and the food is perfectly executed with flavors that complement each other. Every course was outstanding. They have an extensive wine list, some of the wines are not often found on other restaurant wine lists. Our table was cozy and private; the atmosphere is elegant and comfortable. Everything is taken care of and you don't have to ask for anything. Wheatleigh has always been a favorite for me and it continues to be!! If you have never been, don't pass it up!

“A Real Gem in Lenox”
Reviewed February 5, 2012

We had a wonderful dinner at the Wheatleigh this past weekend. It began with a glass of Pol Roger in front of the lobby fireplace. It was accompanied by some hot and cold treats. Next, we went to the main dining room and ordered the four course menu with the addition of the cheese trolley. We also had half bottles of Puligny Montrachet and 2005 Garraud Bordeaux. The restaurant included an amuse bouche, breads and sweets with the coffee. In addition, they included a glass of Pouilly Fuisse with the amuse bouche. The excellent courses included foie gras, spiny lobster, duck and beef. The cheese trolley had a selection of more than a dozen cheeses and allowed five choices. Desserts included the traditional chocolate along with an excellent apple dish and several other choices. All in all, it was a great evening with ambience, service and warmth to match.
