We came in with no reservation just before 9pm on a Thursday night for a dinner in the lounge. Sat at the high tables and got excellent service -- I think they kept the kitchen open for us for which we were grateful. Beet salad, carb cake, Thai noodles, and a burger at our table -- all delicious! Quiet atmosphere... More

We heard this place was a winner so we gave it a try while visiting my daughter a few weeks ago, and it was truly awful. We had made reservations in advance anticipating a busy weekend in town, and the place was packed and apparently the chef was under schooled. We dined in the more casual lounge and were forced...

We were in Vermont celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary. Our B&B suggested Pangaea for dinner. It didn't look like much from the outside and when we entered George immediately greeted us and sat us at our table. The place is small, but big on service and food. The food is all cooked to order and presentation is excellent. George was... More

We have had the pleasure of eating at Pangaea Restaurant in North Bennington, Vermont on several occasions. We have eaten in the lounge and the fine dining side of Pangaea. The worst we can say is that it has always been a delightful experience. The lounge serves the best burgers we have found anywhere in Vermont. The service was excellent,... More

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
