No need to go into town with this restaurant in the hotel! Great menu with fresh offerings. We loved it.

Been here for multiple meals since my lasting posting and must say that the steak is worth the price. Not a fan of the scallops and am wondering why the wine list has so little French and Italian wine. That said, delicious fare. I would recommend starting off with the Charcuterie plate.

First, disclaimer: I hardly ever give five stars, as I I fear that leads to grade inflation. Four is generally tops for me. My spouse and I had two lovely meals here, a dinner and a breakfast. Atmosphere was lovely. Food was very good (creative menu, numerous items and ingredients out of ordinary) and service quite attentive. Cost relatively high,... More

I don't ever write reviews, I formally used to manage upscale restaurants, which is why we were so surprised at how awful our first impression was. Would have been 5 stars but I wanted to make a reservation, called several times and no one answered, It was about 5 in the afternoon which I figured someone would be there to... More

Though the food was excellent, the high point on this visit was the ingredients-knowledge of both the server and the shift manager. Gluten sensitivity -- not celiac, but sensitive -- is an issue for my companion, and bothe the server and his manager made sure we understood what was a TRACE vs. a LOT of wheat. This restaurant is systemically... More

There was confusion with our reservation which we made through Open Table. 30 Boltwood was wonderful straightening that out. We had a mid afternoon Thanksgiving dinner. I loved my appetizer. Had turkey, mush potatoes & delicious veggies. Pumpkins custard was heavenly. We'll come back. Even though the room was full, we could still have a good conversation at the table.

Thanksgiving is one of our favorite holidays here at 30Boltwood and the Lord Jeffery Inn—with potatoes, vegetables, turkey and pumpkin sourced locally from farms right here in Western Massachusetts, you can’t beat the fresh selection. Thank you for choosing to spend your Thanksgiving with... More

Too fancy. Love the place and its ambience, but pate+ on an English muffin is the sandwich? Wish it were a little less hoity-toity.

The food was wonderful all around, from the complimentary amuse-bouche to the potato leek soup to the entrees. I had a delicious pork chop which was done perfectly, accented with a flavorful sauce, and served on just the right amount of freekeh. Husband had the house pasta dish, which I though sounded very basic when he ordered it, but they... More

There was no reservation available on Opentable within 3 hours of the time that I wanted to have dinner. One call to the courteous reservation desk, and I had one within1/2 hour of my chosen time.
