Exceptional Dining in a Contemporary Style
Inspired by contemporary wine country living, our new full-service restaurant, 30 Boltwood, provides an elegant and comfortable atmosphere that embraces the beauty of our natural surroundings.

The restaurant offers an approachable and creative wine list where each offering is hand selected with the intention of creating the perfect compliment to your meal. During the warm-weather season, outdoor dining is available under the covered porch and on the patio just off of the main bar, where soft seating, a warm and inviting firepit, and serene views of the Amherst Commons set the mood for a relaxing, cozy dining experience. Other options at 30 Boltwood include a small private dining room for up to 8 guests and our greenhouse room that showcases a common table that seats up to 16 people and features a sloped glass ceiling that offers exquisite views of the heavens.
