I am still very upset. Food was great as was the waiter but the staff almost completely ruined our 20th anniversary because management completely messed up. They greedily accepted a reservation day of for a party larger party and gave them the table we had confirmed the day before (for the one private room. ) In the end, they found an acceptable space for us, but they did not make up for the bad taste their confusion and lies created. Did the manager come over to our table to personally apologize? Offer us a drink? Special flowers on the table? Some gesture to say”sorry we almost ruined your special day”. No. Nothing. They acted as if nothing had happened. Well, something happened and unfortunately that is what we will remember. Also Blantyre has lost all its charm in a recent renovation. We were there years ago and it was a unique space. No longer. Rather, it got a corporate make over.
So when we want to eat the perfectly prepared food designed by Daniel Boulud, In a beautiful atmosphere, we will go to his restaurants in NYC. There they know how to treat their customers. At Blantyre they haven’t a clue.

From the warm and earthy olfactory experience of stacked wood at the entry, the pianist in the foyer, the two fireplaces, the well crafted architecture and lighting, the smart Covid precautions, excellent service and AMAZING FOOD, we were sold.

Best meal out in the last year. Goodbye 2020, hello 2021 and hello Balyntre.

We will be back. And will enjoy it.

Treat yourself. Do the same.

amuse-bouche was excellent, starter (special for that evening) was also wonderful; the filet mignon main left much to be desired and was unoriginal without much taste; dessert of almond gateaux was excellent

Exceptional experience! From the moment we stepped in the front door, we felt safe (extra covid precautions in place). Dinner was exceptional from the bread to the very end! Make sure you order a hot chocolate of your choice!!! Truthfully the best I’ve ever had and I live in NYC so...that’s saying ALOT! If you’re in the Berkshires for a night or looking for a weekend getaway, Blantyre is the place to be!

This is by far the best experience we've had since living in the Berkshires
Our friend who I a chef and trained in Paris stated it was the " best " !
Can't say more than that!
Service was superior
Atmosphere was Downton Abbey
We love the Blantyre ...

It was a milestone birthday for my partner, and everyone from managers to wait staff made the celebration truly memorable. The food was outstanding and was equally matched by the staff from Julia who made the private room happen to Samy and Benjamin and the impeccable knowledge and service as our waiters. The final coup de gras was Scott giving us a tour of the wine cellar at the end of our spectacular meal. Thank you Blantyre for making yet another celebration truly memorable for us.

What a totally delightful Thanksgiving dinner! Although it ended with one of the best Creme Brûlée I’ve ever enjoyed, the main course - a Turkey dinner - was superb! It was expensive but so worth it! The servers were gracious and easy to talk with, doing their best to make us feel at home. We will come back, for sure!

Wonderful experience- walking through an old castle with each room along the way nicely appointed

The food was a foodies delight. Less about a meal and more about appreciating the flavors, preparation, attention to detail, and presentation

Amazing wine selection

Negative- price was high (worth it but high)
Massachusetts has a 10:00 curfew b/c of covid thus, even an 8:30 reservation meant rushing at the end

Who wouldn't love a masterfully prepared brunch next to a cozy, crackling fire in an antique fireplace? Add some thoughtful touches relevant to current events such as glass separators between tables and masked, gloved waitstaff and you won't find a place to eat indoors that makes you feel more comfortable. The food was divine as always and the bill shockingly small for the quality of the experience. If you find yourself in the neighborhood, stop by and make a memory.

This was our second night eating at the Cafe (it was also my husband and my's birthday) and we were also staying at the Blantyre. The only 'issue' was our service, our dinner was VERY late after we ordered it (another couple that got seated about 30 minutes after we did were eating their meal when ours hadn't come yet). I'm unsure if our server 'lost' our meal or forgot to place our order; I believe our server was in training, but, it was a bit annoying after we had already eaten there, it was our birthdays and we were staying at your beautiful resort. It was a bit disappointing.
