The food was delicious and a bit over-priced. We were a bit early and had a drink at the bar served by the owner. I have rarely met a more pretentious, rude man in my life. He poured me a drink with bugs in it and then proceeded to tell me it would just happen again as he was pouring... More

While visiting family in VT, we were taken to Ariel's. There were four of us. We ordered Salmon, lamb, steak and vegetarian. Richard recommended the wine. Everyone of us claimed that our entre was best. Having just gotten back from a Regent Seven Seas cruise, where the food and service was incredibly good, we were surprised at our reaction to... More

The food was great, service was great, great find. In a very peaceful surrounding. If you are there in September when the trees are turning color be sure to drive along Stone RD. The view is fantastic.

Ariel's is SO good. The service is absolutely impeccable, the setting is lovely, and the food is truly stunning. We started with the goat cheese souffle (an amazing house specialty - don't skip it!) and a local corn and tomato salad. Both were delicious, and although the salad was simpler, the flavors were outstanding. For entrees, we had lamb and... More

I have never had a plate of food at Ariel's that I disliked. The place can be a little hard to get to with the floating bridge closed, but it is worth seeking out when you have a little extra time for a special dinner. Wonderful flavors, gracious hosts, and a village setting make this a real gem.

There's no highway exit for Pond Village, a dirt crossroads within the bowels of Brookfield, Vermont. You have to know how to get there, but it's well-worth the trip. Quaint, peaceful, and unpretentious, this sleepy village is known for its world famous Floating Bridge, a mighty span that saves you about a half-mile drive around tiny Sunset Lake. The bridge...

My family and I dined here this past weekend. I ordered the local skate and it was perfectly prepared with lemon and capers. We started with their signature brussels sprouts, yummy. All of 4 of us enjoyed everything. Even the bread is excellent!

Found this gem while looking for a restaurant not too far from where we were staying in Randolph VT. The food was unbelievable and the service very attentive. Highly recommended if you are in the area (or even if you have to travel a bit to get there). Do make a reservation...there are only about eight tables, which makes it... More

Do you have a special occasion coming up? Want to treat someone to an amazing meal? The quality of the food and atmosphere cannot be overstated. Once you've selected your meal, ask for Richard's advice on wine. You won't be disappointed - he's fun and knowledgeable. This is our go-to restaurant for anniversaries, birthdays, and when we are entertaining special... More

Dinner last night at Ariel's was beyond the beyond. How is it possible that Lee Duberman can put out meals time after time that are original, beautiful, delicious and consistent? This family owned and managed restaurant is a delight in every way.
