My wife and I have been going to Mio for years. There isn't anything on the menu that I haven't had, or wouldn't re-order! They have recently undergone an interior renovation that includes some larger, semiprivate areas that are perfect for a party of eight. The drinks are consistently good, wine is well matched to the entrees and moderatly priced,... More

This restaurant doesn't look as much from the outside, but its surely worth traveling for. The food is extraordinary, the staff is friendly and professional - yet relaxed - and each serving is of a very high standard. Large and tasty portions. We are from outside Vermont and this place will certainly influence plans for future traveling routes through Vermont.

We recently had our rehearsal dinner and reception drinks at Mio Bistro and the experience was perfect. We already knew the food would be delicious, as we've dined here in the past and always left very happy. What we were surprised by was just how accommodating and wonderful the Mio team was to work with. And how wonderfully their recent... More

Already the most popular restaurant in Dorset, Mio's is now even more fantastic, it has been totally remodeled. More indoor seating and a new bar area make it more pleasant than ever. The only disappointing thing about Mio's in the past has been not being able to get a table. The expanded seating will help. We had dinner there last... More

This is a small, intimate restaurant in a small, lovely Vermont town. The chefs/owners, a husband and wife team, offer a wonderful selection of seasonal appetizers and entrees, prepared mostly from locally grown meats and produce. The atmosphere is both casual and refined and the food is beautifully prepared and served. Four of us each had different selections from the... More

This restaurant is a must if you are in the area, (even if you aren't-its worth the drive)! We've been there many times and the food is always consistently creative and great. Leo and Beverly, the owners are both lovely people, They provide organic, grass fed non GMO farm to table foods that are expertly prepared (by Leo). It's obvious... More

We really enjoyed our meal at the bistro last november. The cuisine of chef Leo Ledoux is imaginative and fresh. Only fine local and I believe mostly organic products are used. The service is also perfect and friendly. We will definitely return on our next trip to beautiful Dorset. We had a conversation with the chef and his associate, they... More

This place is surely the ease of comfort while in the midst of others experiencing the grace of little angels pampering your most intimate desires of feasting above the rest. The menu displays excellent tasting choices even for the most hard to please, an experience to savor. Prices aren't bad either.

This neat little restaurant is a real find. We visited the restaurant based on Trip Advisor ratings and we're very happy we did. We were greeted by the friendly hostess/waitress in this busy, happy and noisy place. The service was prompt and attentive ( thanks, Eleanor!). The best part was the menu..I had a wonderful Japanese curry dish with just... More
