A gem in our midst!

We were looking for somewhere different to go, and we stumbled upon the Station. The atmosphere is wonderful, food is superb and service is VERY good. We are anxiously awaiting our next visit there! It cannot come too soon.

If you love historic, renovated to perfection and incredible food this is your place. On a Tuesday evening we had the place pretty much to ourselves which meant very personal service. Pricing was about $$$ but not overpriced at all. Dish I had was Portofino and had lobster, shrimp and scallops in a cream sauce over pene pasta. It was... More

Although we were told the kitchen was "in the weeds" when we got there, we didn't have to wait very long to be served. The salad bar was well stocked and fresh. Our martinis were perfectly made. We had the brie and clams casino for an appetizer which were scrumptious. My mother had the prime rib, cooked exactly to her... More

Charming building, pleasant servers. I was disappointed that on the lunch menu, there were only two vegetarian options, salad or a pasta dish. I liked my spinach salad (which they normally prepare with bacon, I just requested it without), but I would have preferred at least a couple of other choices.

Historical landmark building, with the absolute best chef in town. I can't figure out how the brewery gets rated higher. I guess people in Bennington prefer bar food. Had the steak and the Porto Fino the last two times there and both were excellent as usual. Been going here for years (since it first opened many owners ago). Since Bob... More

Dining for our birthday this year we decided on our 1st visit to the Depot in Bennington. Going on a Saturday night can be a hit or miss, our waitress, while new, admitted that, and was pleasant. Her knowledge of the wine was not great, but she was professional and not on her cell phone, or in the corner talking... More

Over the past couple of years, we have had the opportunity to dine at Bennington Station. After having dinner tonight, we decided to write this review in praise of this unique and exceptional restaurant. From the well appointed salad bar to the beautifully restored train station, eating here is always a consistent and good experience. Tonight we enjoyed the salmon... More
