Total disaster. Food was bad, like real bad. Had the scallops entree with crab risotto. Scallops were hilariously over-salted and and overcooked. The crab risotto was a consistency completely foreign to most western food, somehow rubbery and mushy at the same time. Taste wasn't good either. Service was ATROCIOUS. It was a relatively slow night, and multiple bartenders were working,... More

I love to go here in the winter and sit by the fireplace with a glass of wine. Often it's not crowded. My friend and I went here for dinner last week, though, and it was a disappointment. The salads were fine, but our drinks were served with flat ginger ale and nearly-flat tonic water. I was brought rice instead... More

New to town our family of four decided to celebrate my birthday in downtown NoHo at the historical Wiggins Tavern. We made a reservation a week in advance, but were able to move the time time up on the day of due to little ones being antsy. We found parking at a meter close by to the Northampton Hotel and...

I was looking forward to dining at Wiggins Tavern because I heard rave reviews from my son. Unfortunately, my experience was not a good one. When I called to set up 6:00 p.m. reservations early in the day, I was told only 5:00 p.m. or 7:30 p.m. was available. When my husband and I arrived at 5:00 p.m., only one... More

Wiggins Tavern has a very nice bar. The food is American mainstream, steaks, chops, a little seafood, no real standouts. A nice, comfortable place if you don't know the town.

What a hidden gem. Do not be put off by the old tavern, old grandeur appearance. This has real food, extremely well prepared. Our server was professional and unobtrusive and the chef, michael joseph was outstanding. The wines by the glass were excellent and correctly priced. When a substitute needed to b made i was asked before bringing it to... More

We were staying at the Inn so decided to try the Wiggins. Didn't want a large dinner so did the appetizers, salad and desserts. Superb salad choices; we both loved ours. And the desserts were scrumptious. Had never had Indian Pudding -- will definitely have it again! Great service.

I'm live in the Valley, but hadn't been to Wiggin's Tavern in a very long time but decided to host a small group dinner there to celebrate a friend's upcoming wedding. What a great decision I made, if I do say so myself, haha! It was a group of 6 of us so I made reservations beforehand over the phone... More

We were in town to spend the night before heading to HIstoric Deerfield to visit the following day. We were staying at another hotel property, but wanted to see the Hotel Northampton because it's on the Historic Hotels of America list. While there, we decided to try out Wiggins Tavern for dinner. It was the most incredible dinner ever! My... More
