The new go to place for us

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... read more

What a great place to go for a wonderful dining experience. You can order lots of appetizers and share. Both the taste and presentation were the best and unexpected in a small Vermont Town. Wine choice were also very good. The Inn is now decorated for Christmas and a lovely dining experience. The prices were very reasonable for the quality... More

We stuck with the smaller dishes and had a great dinner. Portions were good. Dessert was really good- try the maple cheesecake.

The Inn at West View Farm is a culinary gem tucked into a beautiful town in Southern Vermont. Just a few miles north of Manchester, the Inn has an exciting menu. The menu consists of soups, appetizers, and "Big Entrees". It also has an excellent wine by the glass selection and also a good selection of Bottled Wines. The appetizers... More

Four of us went to the West View Restaurant before going to a show in Dorset. Choose it because of the good reviews. It was beyond excellent! A wonderful experience for the palate. We ordered seven small dishes. Each was perfectly appointed with an appropriate sauce and garnish. The chef knows what he is doing. We sampled two desserts as... More

This is creative, sophisticated cuisine, a taste of the Far East with a little Manhattan tossed in for good measure. Although the interior is bland, the food is outstanding. We ordered about 8 small plates enjoying the individual textures, the beautiful presentation, the freshness of ingredients and the unique flavours of each dish. The experience was fantastic, a revelation as... More

Excellent food. Best restaurant in the area and compares to the best in Boston and NYC. 10 litle dishes are amazing. Highly recommend.

This is what we mean when we say fine dining. The menu was interesting and varied. The food flavorful and well presented and the staff was friendly, professional and knowledgeable. The setting was an old New England farm house with lots of room to enjoy good company. On the Thursday evening we visited, the restaurant had over 32 patrons for... More
