Allium Restaurant + Bar is proud to have received numerous positive reviews and accolades, including:

“Restaurants across the region are offering more opportunities to enjoy a locavore gin and tonic while someone else does the cooking. One of the best is Allium in Great Barrington where the friendliness of the servers seems uncompromised by their devotional knowledge of the entire menu’s provenance. As this year’s harvest rolls in, try dishes like heirloom tomatoes with raspberries and housemade ricotta.” The New York Times

“I had one of the best meals in recent memory at Allium… undoubtedly worth the trip.” — Valley Advocate

“…one of the hottest nightspots in all the Berkshires.” — Berkshire Living

“Extremely competent in combining disparate tastes and textures, creating a very complete, immensely satisfying dining experience. The fresh, simple tastes of this meal brought back memories of similar dishes enjoyed on a trip to Spain… Allium seems capable of becoming a stalwart starting block of what’s next. Its winning combination of fine dining with comfort and grace hints at a timeless quality that helps restaurants here succeed with both locals and tourists.” — Metroland

“Virtually everything at Allium is made with ingredients from area farms, from the quince paste on the cheese plate to the Berkshire-pork chorizo dish.” —

“Tuck a napkin into your shirt for countryside deliciousness in the Berkshires town of Great Barrington.” — New York Magazine

“In a farm-to-table style business, support of the local farms makes up the ethical backbone of the restaurant.” — Berkshire Eagle

“Local and seasonal is the m.o. at allium, so the menu reads a bit like a wine list… Here, we like seeing our farming neighbors duly credited, especially since the chef does such justice to their stuff.” —

“In foodie-friendly Great Barrington, allium stands out for its steadfast commitment to local ingredients.” — Boston Globe

“The best pancakes ever… This restaurant has carved out a reputation as a destination for fine dining and as a ‘hot’ nightspot. But the Sunday brunch is down-home informal, ideal for kicking back with family, friends or solo with your Sunday paper. Service is attentive and highly professional…well-deserving of citations from Boston Magazine and Yankee Magazine.” — Berkshire Eagle

“This was probably the single best three-course meal I have had thus far… I have been here once before and had a very nice meal, but this time all three courses hit it out of the park.” — The Berkshire Gourmet
