This was an incredibly disappointing Valentine's Day, my friends. The Litchfield Inn advertised a prix fixe Valentine's Day special that we thought that would result in a romantic atmosphere, a New England inn feeling, and lingering over a nice selection of wines. We dressed up and headed out. Instead of an elegant restaurant, we entered into a "bistro" that could have been Anywhere USA with a very loud band that the manager kept asking to turn down. The amps would be turned down until the end of the song, and the next song the amps would be up again. While this would have been fun if we were expecting a burger place, the price of the Valentine's Day dinner was $100 excluding alcohol. It really seemed like a bait and switch, especially given the fact that there used to be a fantastic pianist who played there.
The two highlights were the wonderful server (the restaurant was certainly understaffed) and our entrees, the filet mignon and the chicken. Both were good and cost about $30 each.
This is definitely a jeans and burgers type atmosphere and is not what one would expect from such a stately looking inn on the outside. It is the first time we went there, so I do not know its local reputation. We certainly do not have a reason to return as there are several restaurants on Litchfield Green that are a better fit for the cost of the meal.
