My wife and I ate there on Valentine's Day for dinner. The atmosphere is cozy and warm. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The food on the whole was very good but the steak was a little tough which was unexpected based on the overall experience. We'll definitely try it again

John Andrews is a lovely restaurant offering American cuisine. We were a party of ten on a Saturday night and the food and service were very good. The food was excellent and the perfect portion size. The bar area seemed lovely and next time we go we will definitely make sure we stop there and have a cocktail before dinner.

John Andrews can be one busy place and when it gets hoping it can get loud. The trouble is I have had super meals here and I have had OK meals here too. I will say I have never had a bad meal here. It's not cheep so I kind of expect a more consistent meal. The place is nicely... More

I was entertaining friends from Australia and hoping to show them the best that the Berkshires had to offer. I read good things about this place and was looking for a sense of history and New England flair with our meal. While the house is well appointed and welcoming, the 'esteemed' fireplace is at best an after thought available to... More

We visited for dinner on a Monday evening and it was pleasantly busy but not crowded. Staff were friendly and efficient and service was easy and quick. Decor is modern and clean, with appropriate hints of farmhouse. A good selection of wines, beers and cocktails and an interesting menu catering for vegetarian, seafood and carnivore choices. Hard to comment on... More

Had a very nice dinner with my wife last weekend. Started with a shrimp appetizer that was a great balance of heat and flavor. Would have been nice to be offered more than a slice of bread - although it was very good. My wife's scallops were very good and the squash/bacon side I had with my chicken was outstanding.... More

John Andrews is an upscale restaurant with a comfortable bar area and several dining rooms. We prefer to sit in the back, where there's twinkling light on the trees and the atmosphere is intimate and romantic. The appetizers and pastas are so varied that we stuck with those - you can get appetizer-size entrees too. The pastas are extraordinary in... More

Restaurant is in a pretty building in an out of the way location. The parking lot was full on a Tuesday night which was surprising. However, the front room had unoccupied tables. Good separation between bar and dining areas. Staff was friendly and professional and slow. We were happy with our meals. The ricotta gnocchi was heavenly especially since it... More

We visited John Andrews for the first time this past week. The restaurant is in a old New England House with two large dining areas and additional tables and seating in the bar.

We went with friends who have a home nearby. Lovely setting and 6 of us sat around a lovely round table. Frequented by a lot of NYers who have homes in the area. Definitely the best meal we have had out in this area. It's not average and it's not very good. It's - good!

Description
John Andrews Farmhouse offers a unique farm-to-table dining experience in the Berkshires. Built in the late 1700s, the restaurant’s rustic, country charm is enhanced by a cozy fireplace in winter months and, in summer, al fresco dining is available on the terrace.

The restaurant features New American cuisine with Italian influences, rooted in the region's agricultural history. Dan Smith has been the chef-owner since 1990, creating seasonal menus long before farm-to-table was a trend. Known as the “architect of modern Berkshire cooking,” as coined by Travel & Leisure, Dan offers a unique taste-of-place dining experience.

Named one of the World’s 25 Best Farmstead Experiences in The Daily Meal, John Andrews Farmhouse is a Lonely Planet Top Choice and has been awarded the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence, Yankee Magazine Editor’s Choice and the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence.

Prix Fixe specials include Mom’s Meatloaf Monday (winter only) and Giovedi on Thursday nights (year round). John Andrews offers an extensive wine list, full cocktail bar and a lighter-fare bar menu. Open Thursday to Tuesday and closed Wednesdays, all major credit cards are accepted.
