i would give it less than 1 if i could... the worst food i ever had.. i got the mixture plate. the lasagne was disgustng. and no spagetti came with the chick parm. they charged me extra for a scoop of watery spag with ragu on it.. place just plain stinks.... and it was very dirty......
OMG, I have never had the worst most horriable service in my life. Parts of the meal rushed. Parts so long I thought the waitress had died. And now here best part the food. If the Chef knew how to do something more then open a can then it would be the best to the place. everything had a tin taste except the ceasar salad. Thatw as acutally good. Tin soup with a few cut vegtables that also tasted like they were from a can. YUCK YUCK YUCK - for a new Chef they missed the mark with this one. I would rather eat at Shenagins at the Shaws Plaza. Don't waste your money or or time. When I find an acceptable resturant I will let you know so far my seach has not redeamed anything of value yet.
The food is usually good, the service is usually mediocre and the entertainment is almost always very good but none of the above is worth the amount of cigarette smoke that permeates throughout. Eating upstairs seems to make little difference. We just won't go back again as long as it remains a smoking environment.
We have been disappointed by our meals before, but always seem to head back, if for no other reason than there is literally NO place else to eat in Milford. We have visited the Pasta Loft for the last time. Our service was horrific. We were acknowledged about 6 minutes after sitting, by the owner who was sitting at the table next to us. Soup and salad, standard with the meals. Our meals were luke warm and for the price, substandard. We even commented to the waitress, if this was what we got for the price and she rolled her eyes and shrugged her shoulders. Now that is true quality service.....NOT.
We go here a few times a month. We've seen it busy and we've seen it empty. Cleanliness and ambiance is mediocre. I like the casual atmosphere and the rustic look of the ancient brick, but stains on the floor is not too appealing.
What is really appealing is the wood-fired brick oven! Unfortunately the quality of the food from it can be inconsistent: it's often over-cooked. If you like pizza on a cracker then you may not be disappointed.
There are two dining areas. The one downstairs serves food from both menus, but the much more quiet and intimate dining area upstairs serves food from only one menu, the one that does NOT offer selections from the brick-oven (in other words, no pizza and calzones upstairs). We usually opt for the downstairs dining area.
In general the food is very fresh. The pizza dough is not the pre-made frozen junk that is all too-common in pizza places. Their pizza and spaghetti sauce is homemade.
The entrees come with soup and salad; unfortunately there are no choices with either. However, the soup is excellent, and although very simple, the salad is above average because of the fancy greens and homemade dressing.
The waitstaff can be rather young and often acts very inexperienced, sometimes even afraid, VERY afraid. We've had to wait an unusually long amount of time ( 90 seconds) to be greeted and seated; other members of the waitstaff saw us standing there and didn't even acknowledge us.
There is live entertainment late in the week and on weekends; there can be some acts with moderate quality. One evening we walked out just as quickly as we walked in because the music was so crappy. For some reason they never seem to have female entertainers.
Being very sensitive to cigarette smoke, I can attest that their smoking bar is fairly well-isolated from the dining area. Unfortunately you have to pass through the length of the bar to get to the host/hostess station.
Overall: 'A' for effort, 'C' for delivery.
The Bedford Village Inn has a lot more to offer than merely a place to stay. Each of the suites
is uniquely and tastefully decorated with the charm that runs throughout the Inn. Once a farmhouse, the Inn now ...
