What can I say? Make a reservation and arrive early to enjoy a drink before dinner and the views. If you want a fine dining experience with European style service, you just might want to give The Wheatleigh Main Dining Room a try. From the time one arrives until one departs, you are made to feel as a most welcome... More

Tall open windows in a minimalist neoclassical surrounding offer panoramic views in this gracious mansion. Both the menu and wine list are extensive and offer an impressive range and quality of tastes artfully presented. Servers may appear overly pretentious and watchful which means that unless you are in a large group you may feel uncomfortably restricted. Since there are numerous... More

While A beautiful, romantic room the food is just ok and over priced! There is much better and more reasonable restaurants in the Lenox area.

Fun place to pretend to be part of rich and famous and enjoy the "oh so special" setting. Nice to go for a drink or more (if you can afford it).

I prefer going there for a drink outside as opposed to a lunch/dinner inside. The food is ok but it's nicer to be outside. Best service in Berkshires

The Wheatleigh was wonderful. We needed a place to have a nice anniversary lunch before the Bob Dylan concert at Tanglewood. Not easy to find a place that was more than "burgers" and we could make a reservation. The Wheatleigh setting was perfect. About 10 minutes from Tanglewood, a wonderful light lunch in the Library, outstanding service and a very... More

Dining here was quite an experience. We had dined in the Library and had the dinner of the lifetime. Courses were perfectly timed, drinks came right away. Service was courteous and always prompt. The views were spectacular. We will definitely be back.
