“This is the place to eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

This was far and away my favorite place to eat in Bedford. The restaurant itself pays homage to the resorts historic roots. The original wavy glass panes are in the windows, original local coverlets adorn the walls, a glass case contains four long rifles forged in Bedford from the 1800s by the two gunsmiths in the area. As beautiful and historic as the restaurant is, the food is even better. We ate here on two nights of our four night stay and each time I had the beef tenderloin. It was cooked to perfection, and ranks among the best meals. We had heirloom carrots in bourbon sauce and garlic whipped potatoes. This restaurant is worth driving in for even if you are not staying at the hotel.

“Best Restaurant at Omni only much too Cold”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2014

We had a wonderful meal in this Steakhouse. The service and atmosphere were very good. The cocktails were well prepared and you got a full Martini Glass. The menu selections were excellent and the food preparation fabulous. Worth the high prices as it was a delightful dining experience. 90% better than the Crystal Room as the service, drinks, menu and preparation were superior. The wait staff was even more professional and attentive. Best restaurant to eat dinner at if you do not want to venture off-property.

The only negative to this dining experience was the Air Conditioning. Fortunately, my significant other and I had jackets on, but we still froze. The air did not stop blowing from the moment we sat down. Many tables we saw people coming in and then one of the persons would leave and go up and get jackets/sweaters for the party at their table. Several patrons requested they adjust the air and perhaps they did for all of 5 minutes and then on with the burst of cold air blowing on you. Everything was wonderful in this restaurant, but it was too cold which damped your enjoyment. We didn't have dessert, coffee or after dinner drinks because we needed to get out as it was too cold. One of the tables next to us had 2 gentlemen sitting there with dinner jackets and they looked over at us and said, next time we need to wear winter jackets. We laughed and they, like us, didn't have coffee or dessert as they were too cold. We walked out together and all went outside to get warm. Why can you have such a perfect restaurant and meal and freeze out the customers? Eat here, but make certain you are dressed for winter.

the cheese/meat sampler tray was nice to have with wine. Nice view from our window and a cozy historic atmosphere.

“Waited a long time”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

Food was good and the setting was private. The wait for our food was well over an hour. Not good with no apology at all.

“Very good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014 via mobile

While staying at bedford spring my girlfriend and I chose to go to 1796 for dinner. We had a very pleasant experience. The restaurant is slightly odd in that couples sit at a sofa type seat but it was a fun setting. I ordered the seared scallop special cajun crayfish macaroni and cheese. Both items were very good but maybe a little bland. My girlfriend ordered the truffle risotto and we also shared the onion rings. She loved her risotto and the onion ring were outstanding. It is worth going back to the next time we are at the resort.

Thank Christopher J
