We ate at the dining room of the Arms for breakfast (twice) and dinner (once). We were very impressed all the times. My husband particularly liked the french toast at breakfast, and the oatmeal was imaginatively presented with all sorts of fruit toppings etc. I know it is hard to screw up oatmeal, but theirs was well done. The restaurant is not large. It is not a place I would recommend for children under the age of 10 for dinner. It is presented as a throw-back to fine dining although not every man wore a tie and jacket. We happen to enjoy such a place. The service was impeccable. The food was very, very good. We split a salad, ordered our own entrees and then split dessert. Some folks might object to the formal feeling, but we don't. I don't think the staff intends the place to feel stuffy. There were lovely touches- like the little yogurt fruit shots to "clear the palate" between courses, the attention to detail was clear. Nothing was too small to be overlooked. Fish was freshly delivered each day. We are looking forward to a return trip to enjoy this wonderful restaurant again.

We were four in our party and we did dinner here quite literally from soup to nuts. Everything was first-class, fresh and delicious. My wife (an excellent cook herself) described the salad as "phenomenal." All the entrees-- chicken, fish and beef-- were well cooked and nicely presented. The desserts were imaginatively prepared and scrumptious. And the waitstaff was friendly, well- informed, well-trained and attentive. Yes, it was a bit pricey but, in this case, very well worth it indeed.

We've visited Mount Washington many times but this was the first trip where we decided to venture over to Bretton Arms for dinner. We enjoyed it so much, we returned for dinner the following night and breakfast the day after. The dining room is warm but updated without any of the mothball-y floral chintz one might expect in an inn. Service was very good. Reservations are a must-have over the weekend but we were happy eating at the bar one of the nights. Some particular favorites; the gnocchi were fabulous, short rib sliders out of this world and there's a "cheesecake" on the dessert menu that is grossly short-sold in being so named. Amazing baklava-like crust and a not-overly-dense filling.

Ate here twice for breakfast (a bit too formal for dinner with kids). Between the four of us we tried most options and everything was excellent! Lump crab hash had serious crab meat and the frittatas are excellent but a bit large for one person. Little shots of fruit smoothies to close the meal was a nice touch! Great service and reasonable prices for the quality and location (not cheap but did feel gauged).

We love spending time in the White Mountains but have found that good restaurants are few and far between. This was our first trip to the Bretton Arms and we were not disappointed. The service was exceptional! Robert, our waiter, was very attentive and when my wife explained that she had some food allergies, the chef came out to our table to get the details so there wouldn't any problems. I can't comment on the wine list since we both had mixed drinks, but our dinners were excellent. It's not cheap, but you get what you pay for, so if you're looking for a cheap meal I suggest you go elsewhere. However, if you want high-quality food and excellent service I recomend the Bretton Arms.
