The host, staff and management were wonderful and gracious. We split a Cesar salad and they thoughtfully brought it on two plates. The pasta and grilled chicken were delicious as was my lamb chops with four cheese mac and cheese. We skipped dessert, but the coffee and aperitif's were excellent. I highly recommend a drive out to this hidden gem.

I took my wife there for Mother's Day treat, because she especially like oysters and the Ahi Tuna that you featured on the menu. They were both a hit. And, oh yes I would be remiss if I didn't mention the outstanding martini w/blue cheese stuffed Olives. We will definitely return in the future with other family members for other functions and special occasions! Thank you Allison for the great table service.

I dine at the Mansion every year to celebrate my birthday and my anniversary. Even though my wonderful Husband has passed away I still like to go and celebrate our anniversary. The food, service has always been excellent. I have given gift certificates to two of my dear friends for Christmas for the last couple of years so they can also enjoy The Mansion.

We drove over 35 miles to dine at The mansion. I read reviews on open table and decided to take a gamble. This restaurant is a notch way above the dining we experience in Worcester, MA. This restaurant is located on an historic property in Woodstock, CT. , off a rural road. If it wasn't for the GPS we might have thought we were lost. The appetizers were excellent especially the Meatballs Italia. The short rib entree was excellent also. All dishes were prepared with thought and were very fresh. The wine list is excellent. Cocktails were not the best but it appears the wait staff makes the cocktails? Dining in an old mansion is excellent and quite a nice atmosphere. And there is adequate parking. Very important to us as Worcester is not a friendly restaurant town in my opinion in regards to providing adequate parking. So those that live close to Route 395 you MUST dine at the mansion I believe you will be pleasantly surprised!

We regularly “go to the Mansion”. The entire evening is always such a delight, the grounds, the ambiance, the staff, the service and of course, the food. This last visit was for a very special occasion but many times it just “let’s go to the Mansion”. And, we go.

I have been to the Mansion at Bald Hill many times. This time we were going for Father's Day and an early birthday for me. We had initially made the reservation for dinner but after checking the menu, I noticed that what I really wanted to try was not on the menu so we changed it to brunch. We had been to brunch the week before with a group of friends and it was wonderful. This time the brunch was not as good and the restaurant was not nearly as crowded as the last time we went. This is still one of my favorite places and I will go again but was disappointed with the food this time.

We took our friends to the Mansion at Bald Hill for Sunday brunch and we were certainly not disappointed. The service was excellent. The food was excellent. We all loved what we ordered from the Eggs Benedict with the best hollandaise sauce I have ever had to what a friend ordered, which was the lobster mac and cheese, which she said was wonderful. The scones that they had were so delicious. I really wanted to try the croissants but I was too full from my entree. This restaurant is by far my most favorite in our neck of the woods. I like it so much, we are going back for Father's Day/my birthday.

We were with an elderly couple with hearing issues so we asked to be moved to a quieter space. We were moved to a quiet room and we were able to hear the live music AND have conversation.

We enjoyed our visit to The Mansion at Bald Hill very much. It's a lovely setting and a picturesque drive from anywhere in the surrounding area. Prices are very reasonable and commensurate with the quality of food. Our waitress was little pre-occupied with a nearby table whom were obviously her friends, so service lagged at points. We will however return.

This is our second time dining at The Mansion and after our first visit we had to come back. The food was exceptional which was consistent with our first experience. My wife and I had put in the Open Table notes that we were celebrating our anniversary, but werent acknowledged by the server or hostess at all. Some of the steps of service took longer than expected, and had to ask a couple times for the same things. But overall, our experience was great and we will be back again and again.

P.S.
The only reason I rated the noise level a 4 was because there seemed to be a very large party take up one side of the restaurant. This was no fault of the restaurant at all but I just wanted to be thorough. When we ate here the first time it was very quiet with a great atmosphere.

If you are looking or something a little off the beaten path, take a drive out to beautiful Woodstock and enjoy an intimate dinner at the Mansion at Bald Hill. The atmosphere is lovely, the food very good quality and the wine list was reasonable. It was a very enjoyable experience and we will definitely go back.
