Food 101 is the best restaurant in South Hadley for drinks, atmosphere, great appetizers, and overall food quality. It is also convenient and easy to get to from any point as South Hadley is centrally located to all points in Western Mass. The appetizers are always fantastic and change about every month. We like to go for drinks and get 2-4 appetizers which together make a satisfying and delicious meal. Ask for the raw oysters - they generally have them and they are great!

Though it is a bit noisy the food more than makes up! Excellent tuna appetizer and salmon main course!
Wine list is great and the opening drinks were a great start.

Jim and I have been here many times and I have to say that Food 101's Bolognese is the very best in the valley, bar none. Jim had the Sunday special which was hanger steak with mushrooms and mashed and leeks. The sauce was divine and the steak was excellent! The bartender was attentive and personable. All in all we had a lovely after movie dinner at the bar!

I have been here a number of times for drinks and light fare and for wonderful full dinners as well. We recently celebrated my mother's 80th birthday and selected an early time for dinner and a quiet both--it can get quite lively there. The food was out of this world--and the service top notch.

The interior design is quite refined. Their menu choices are varied and delicious. The wait staff is attentive. Right in downtown South Hadley, where there is a big, free parking lot, which you've got to love. Reasons I'm giving it four stars instead of five is that it seems like they could use an extra waiter or two - service can be a little slow. Also, they make the lights way too dim. I get it that they're trying to add to the ambiance, but sometimes dark is just dark.
