Cantina 229’s marriage of thoughtful, farm to table, world inspired menu options with casual, location inspired atmosphere make a kind of rural destination dining experience that can’t be compared to anything else in the Berkshires. True casual outdoor dining, lawn games, bon fires, a wood stove, great bar, and choice of community style or private seating make this restaurant intriguing to many different people from diverse backgrounds and in any season.
Our first visit there but not our last: great food creations, friendly waiters, cheery master chef...even the margarita was exceptionally good. Love it, can't wait for our next mini celebration to go there.
As always Cantina was excellent! Can’t wait to return soon with family and friends!
Fantastic service, creative food and drinks menu. Need to go back before it changes to try some of the other choices! Small place though, so reservations definitely recommended.
Amazing spot. The place was cute and cozy. The service was impeccable. The food was great. Fresh ingredients, nice twists of flavor. We had a few apps, 2 mains and split a dessert. (Vinegar pie- go for it!) Way too much food for 2 people. Oh nice cocktails and a good wine list as well.
Best place in the Berkshires!
Cantina is tops for creative dining in the Berkshires. A limited menu but with great local ingredients and a wide variety of tastes from Asian to Italian. Basically, you can’t go wrong with anything you order. If I were to wish for one enhancement, it would be more wines by the glass to expand the flavor profiles.
Wait staff, drinks, food, wonderful
The menu was Pre-fixe for Valentines day and the menu was emailed to us prior to the day so there were no surprises. The menu itself was amazing with 6 courses of small plates. Each course complimented the other and we were very happy. Would absolutely go back
Valentine Day... we come here pretty often when in area but quite disappointed with extent of price gouging... $20 bourbon drink, ended up w set price fix and getting out for $228 for 2 before the tip! Really?!? Very disappointing, besides fact that the hot food was Luke warm.
Incredible. Great food, beautiful space. Highly recommended.
This restaurant is fantastic ! Service is first class. Food is so, so good! Even for vegetarians like me
Never fails to provide an excellent dining experience!
Jose was great. The food is amazing.
Menu varies here. This was not the best menu ever. Pa Jun yummy as always. Great Brussels sprouts. Chicken and the pasta were just ok.
Cantina 229 pretty much defines what dining should be!. The minute you walk through the door there is a sense of warmth and well being..From the greeting at reception to the incredible aromas coming from the open kitchen you already get a sense of the treat that lie ahead. The menu is small but the range of offerings is amazing and everything i have ever ordered has been mouth watering. The service is as great as the food and its hard not to feel like a friend when you are there. It's worth a drive from anywhere in the Berkshires to experience the magic . Lastly the bar has in incredible collection of Mezcal and a deep knowledge about it as well. so for an all around great evening you are looking in the right place!!
This is our favorite place in the Berkshires. great food, lovely people and atmosphere. We recommend it to everyone!
Great service and updates on the Patriots game!
Service is always A+ and the servers are very nice and personable.
The menu is eclectic -unpredictable, even- but delicious. There are some highly seasoned dishes but the servers are very skilled at guiding you if you’re wary of spicy food.
Lovely room, friendly & warm ambience.
Had a lovely evening - great services, great and interesting food> perfect for a birthday or special dinner.

From the moment you walk through the front door and smell the culinary delights coming from the open kitchen to the sad moment you take your last bite of desert, Cantina 229 is a constant treat! the menu is inventive and the execution pretty close to perfect. Combine that with a staff that goes out of its way to please and a warm and friendly vibe throughout and its hard to find a better spot to dine. It works great with a small group or a date.. somehow it all feels right!
Excllent in every way. Changing menu of creative seasonal food is very welcome. Superb cocktails. A true gem
Great meal and outstanding service. Our go-to restaurant in the area
Excellent creative dishes, delicious drinks, a real oasis
Always amazing the people are so friendly it feels like home with better food
Great food and service! Always great to see Jocelyn and the team!
Wonderful restaurant in the Berkshires. It's a little bit remote so be prepared to drive on some winding rural roads to get there but well worth the trip!
I've been here a bunch of times and find it is difficult to converse due to the noise level. I find it exhausting. Great but some super expensive cocktails. My food order came wrong but it had taken so long to arrive, I decided to let it go. Would be great to offer gluten-free pasta options. Always not sure if I sense a bit of attitude from staff, or if its just me being slightly put off by the noise... Will return for sure!
I brought a friend who never been and he loved the atmosphere and food!
I loved this Restaurant!! I like to experience great food, I myself I am a fantastic cook, so when I go out I search for people who are passionate about where the food comes from and the love that’s going into preparing it. Not only was the food delicious, the space they have is natural/industrial and has great vibe.
Not one bad or mediocre thing about Cantina 229; it was excellent all the way around and only made better by our server, Fern; she was a pleasure! Thanks for a great dinning experience!
We have been to Cantina229 on several occasions. We have brought friends and family, recommended it to many friends and we are never disappointed! This visit was no exception, wonderful as always.
When our table gave 2 credit cards to split the bill they charged one for 1/2 the total and the other for the full amount. If I didn't have alerts set up on my credit card for any charges over $100 I wouldn't have found out about it until the next statement. This way I was able to call for the refund and correct it to the right amount soon after leaving....
The restaurant is very good. It has an innovative menu providing an interesing selection of appetizers and entrees. It isnt convenient but definitely worth the trip.
Food was excellent. Enjoyed an eclectic variety of tastes. Service was outstanding.
Looking forward to going back and trying the different variations of the season
Really enjoyable evening at Cantina. Our server, Emma, was a gem, knew her stuff and gave great suggestions. We had two appetizers - the roasted carrots with burrata and the crispy eggplant, and then both had bibimibap. lots of food, next time would share appetizer or order two appetizers and no main. We did have room for the homemade soft serve (garden mint, with twist of watermelon sorbet), very glad we didn't miss it!
We had a great meal at Cantina 229! Each dish was better than the next!
