Liked the food and wine but wished there were more people doing the same thing. They don't know what they missed.

The main restaurant is elegant, pricey with excellent food and service. We prefer the more modestly-priced and far more relaxed atmosphere of their lounge with the somewhat more limited menu and have become frequent diners for the past several summers in August. The lounge has always offered fine food at a relaxed but enjoyable pace. This past visit was alarming.... More

I planned an early dinner so that I could snag a terrace seat on a fine July day. It was curious to me that they have let the vegetation grow up such that you can barely see the river, but I got the one spot where I could. Ordered the steak and cornbread. It was all delicious, made perfectly as... More

I love going here with a few friends or for a date night. The atmosphere is very nice and quiet. It is obvious, by the presentation and flavor of the food, that the chef takes pride with all items leaving his kitchen. Our server was very knowledgable of the menu and the specials being offered. We had the salad with... More

The food was to notch but our server, George was amazing! I have a gluten allergy and he was so attentive to my special needs as was the chef that I forgot to be diligent. He presented our perfectly prepared dishes and told me what modifications that were made to ensure that I was not "glutenated". Every thing was just... More

My boyfriend and I didn't know much about this restaurant when we arrived but wow! This is now one of my top restaurants and I have had the pleasure of dining in many countries at some truly outstanding restaurants. Fantastic food---lovely, delectable presentation, fresh, delicious produce, sauces that defy expression, meat done to a turn----in a setting that is quiet,... More

We had a "chef's tasting" as suggested by George; small plates with wines. Everything was simply delicious -from the scallops, to venison, to mushrooms in phyllo to the exquisite lamb! Not to forget the creme Brule. A very special find in Bennington

The service was excellent, the food was good, a tad expensive though. My cup of coffee was really a cup of espresso and there are no refills if you buy coffee. I also felt the décor was not very nice, it needs sprucing up! Then entrance especially is dark and dirty... I am not sure I would go back.

We've had a chance to enjoy a few more meals at Pangaea (lounge side) and tried a few new things on the menu, including the amazing beet salad! Their crab cakes were delicious too - not too "breading filled" - just tangy crab meat! The service was great and the staff goes out of their way to make everyone feel... More

We enjoyed a nice dinner on the fine dining side of the restaurant. Drinks first: mom and I enjoyed the Hildene Merlot. Very different than traditional Merlots, but v nice. Dad and brother were happy with their traditional cocktails. We shared two starters, the Boar Wellington and a Venison dish. Both were tender and flavorful. Nicely presented. Two of us... More
