“Disappointed this time around.”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

Having been here before we came back to celebrate our anniversary. There was only one server for the restaurant, which has indoor and outdoor seating. It was a week-day night. We ordered a few glasses of wine which were quite delayed on arriving. Our server didn't write anything down, just nodded. My wife ordered a salad with cranberries and goat cheese and I ordered a beet salad. Her's arrived, mine never did. Her's was so big, I shared it with her. We no sooner begin on the salad when our server brought out our main courses (half-chicken special). We told him to take it back until we finished with the salad. When we got them back, the chicken was going on the dry side from being kept under the lights. The mashed potatoes and chard were fine. I was so upset by this time with the lack of attention, that I just wanted to finish and leave, skipping dessert and coffee. For your money, there are many better dining options in th e Lenox area.

“One of.the best in the berkshires”
Reviewed June 23, 2012

During our visit to berkshire county we decided to make a stop at Jonathans bistro. It was a quaint quiet little restaurant with a romantic atmosphere. We ordered the scallop special and it was some of the best scallops we've had in a long time. It was paired with a quoted swiss chard, beet puree, and basmati rice. Jonathans is definitely a place we look forward to on our next visit.

“Great place to stop for a lite lunch or dinner!”
Reviewed May 14, 2012

Very hip and casual spot to stop during our tour and visit to Lenox and Stockbridge. The staff very accommodating and helpful with our entree selection. We had the pizza and salmon burger, which was very delicious. The pizza was a bit greasy but the ingredients were perfect. eggplant, roasted peppers, portabello mushrooms and squash! Overall a very pleasant dining experience.

“A pleasant place to stop on an afternoon in the Berkshires.”
Reviewed May 1, 2012

Very casual but with a contemporary a
Atmosphere. They serve all afternoon and evening. The food is really Excellant. Everything is freshly made by their wonderful cooks. Their fried chicken is delicious. You'd swear it was made in the deep south. It's light however and not at all the least bit greasy.
