Description: Chez Nous is a chef- and pastry chef-owned operation where the focus is on real, seasonal ingredients prepared in both modern and classic ways. We offer half portions of many items, to encourage lots of tasting and variety, and we take care to prepare as many items gluten-free and dairy free as possible, leaving lots of choices for everyone. Our 1841 house has charm and comfort, and our newly-renovated bar is the perfect place to have a local craft beer, wine from our award-winning list, or a creative cocktail, along with bar snacks, our famous pate, or anything from our dinner menu.

Service and food are consistantly excellent at this charming restaurant. I enjoy the entree half portions which make it possible to enjoy an appetizer and/or a dessert. This restaurant never disappoints.

“Top restaurant slips”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

Having recently dined at Chez Nous on our annual trip to Tanglewood we were sorely disappointed with the menu selection and food preparation at what had beed a top restaurant. The menu is limited to six entrees (2 pork, 2 fish, 1 lamb, and1 veg.) We chose the trout and it was tasteless, not even lemon was served with it. When we mentioned this to the manager, we were offered more vegetables. Missing from the menu was duck or at least an interesting chicken dish. If one does not wish pork or lamb, the choices were limited. Given that the prices are comparable to other high end restaurants in the area, one can do much better than Chez Nous.

We are so sorry that you were disappointed with your recent experience at our restaurant. We are confused, however, since we haven't had a pork dish on the menu all summer. We also certainly have plenty of lemons, or extra lemon vinaigrette (the sauce for the dish), to offer with fish. We have changed to a smaller menu format, it's true, changing our menu daily and working more closely with our local suppliers, and we still offer half and full portions of all of our entrees. We feel that this change gives us the chance to offer the best variety of seasonal dishes that we can every day. All of these changes have been extremely well-received by our guests overall, though certainly some will be looking for their favorite dishes to come around as the menu shifts. Online reviews are a great way to reflect on a restaurant's work, but this review has some strange inaccuracies; there's no pork here, at all, for months.

“Terrific food but don't be in a rush”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

This restaurant came highly recommended and the food was indeed superb. The ambiance is pleasant and inviting. The menu includes "half entree" dishes which make dinner far more affordable than anticipated. I was pleasantly surprised by the relatively inexpensive bill. My only gripe is that the service was painfully slow. Even getting the check took more than 10 minutes. Our waiter was frequently absent from the dining room for long intervals, so we couldn't even attempt to try to get his attention.
In summary---it's fantastic; but go only if you've got plenty of time to chat while waiting to be served.

Thanks so much for your well-balanced review of our restaurant, we really appreciate it! Summer is crazy and while we have reduced our menu and change it daily in order to help expedite service and respond to the summer crowds, things can get backed up for sure at different times of the night. We will keep pushing to go faster and get you where you need to go sooner! Thanks so much for coming and we'll hope to see you again!

“Star in the Berkshires”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

We stopped for dinner on a Sunday night while traveling from Boston to Syracuse. We sat outside after a brief wait and had a fantastic meal. Our server Max was very knowledgeable and gave excellent descriptions and recommendations. The summer selections were beautiful to look at and had flavors we don't normally get. They offer small plates which obviously caters to the older crowd in attendance. We are in our 50s and were the youngest ones in the dining room. We had 4 course and were not disappointed in a single one. My husband's trout was likely the star of the night, but every bite of every dish was wonderful. The restaurant is just off the Mass pike in the beautiful Berkshires.

“Repeat Visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

We've been going to Chez Nous since it opened and we are always glad to return. The menu constantly changes and the food is always well cooked and interesting. The service is friendly, attentive but not intrusive. Since our last visit they have introduced half portions which is a great idea since it means you can get an appetizer, 1/2 entree and dessert and not feel stuffed. This really is the place to eat if you are in the Berkshires.
