This restaurant is a nice surprise. The food is very creative and has an asian fusion influence with great flavors. There is a small plate shareable and large plate portions of the menu. Excellent restaurant that is definitely worth a visit.

Southern Vermont has quite a few really good restaurants but few have consistently great food and service. We live locally and whenever we've dined at the Inn at West View Farm we have been totally amazed how each item on their menu comes out perfectly cooked time and time again. Ray Chen has what it takes to keep us coming... More

Good Asian in Dorset, Vermont? Absolutely - a great surprise. High-end and creative. cooking. The restaurant specializes in small plates but the menu lists large plate main courses as well. Don't overlook the creative and superb tasting deserts--ice cream ones as well as cakes. It is not inexpensive, but the wine list presents a reasonably priced a nice selection.

I would not have expected to find such a wonderful Asian (Chinese -oriented) restaurant in Dorset, but here it is. And best of all they had a menu of little dishes - tapas like - that were all wonderful. Moderately priced, full bar, great service. Really good.

We enjoyed a MOST MARVELOUS dinner with great friends at Westview Farm tonight. Ray Chen has driven his menu intentionally to exciting, exotic asian flavors and textures - small plates and mains - but maintains a selection of more traditional "New England" dishes anchored to the Inn's Dorset location. Christal manages the restaurant brilliantly, assisted by a super- welcoming and... More

Since we live in the next town over, we have been frequent visitors to the Inn at West View Farm, and have had dinner there many times. We have never been disappointed, and alternate between eating in the dining room and the tavern. Although we have probably tried pretty much every dish that Chef Raymond Chen has come up with,...

We visit Dorset almost every summer, and one of the highlights is always dinner at, or from the Inn - they do takeaway, too! The menu is innovative and unexpected given the traditional appearance of the property, and we especially love the small plates. The fish tacos made with wonton shells is a favorite. I've yet to order something I... More

In a lovely classic Vermont country inn we had a delicious predominantly Asian inspired meal. There were four of us so we did have a good variety of choices from every part of the interesting and creative menu. Highlights: steamed dumplings, seaweed salad, beet salad, BBQ ribs, spring rolls, duck confit, and an excellent haddock dish. All were well presented... More

What a wonderful find. My wife was looking for someplace different to celebrate her birthday and learned of this place through high praise from her friends. Dorset is about a 50 minute drive for us so it is not the first place we think of to head out to dinner. The Inn is very easy to get to and the... More
