Have dined here many times. Abby and Rogan are a great husband-wife team-Abby in the front, Rogan as the chef in the back. They create a welcoming, innovative dining experience in a casual atmosphere. The daily specials include food, wine, and creative drinks. This is a not to be missed experience. We have had food ranging from fish to beef... More

Two of us enjoyed a really excellent meal -- interesting presentations, unusual combinations, and all fresh and delicious. The wait staff was excellent all around: friendly and knowledgeable. Just by chance, we were there on a night when they had what they call the "Throwdown" -- a three-course meal for (in Sept. 2014) only $29. An amazing bargain! Would have... More

We celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary with my in-laws (first time diners who came in from East Hampton, NY) and as always a wonderful time and meal was had by all. For a busy Saturday night, we were warmly greeted by Abby (co-owner) and her great wait staff - Marina and Ashley. (Even bartender Natalie was nice enough to bring... More

We were dragged here by our friends on our second night in Vermont. And BOY, were we so thrilled that they did! The interior is unique and the service couldn't have been better. We loved the farm to table eating - YUM! I had the tamales and the falafel, and my husband had the trout bones, grits, and the desert... More

We have eaten there several times over the past few months. This is an unusual place. The menu never stays the same, giving us a chance to experience meals we otherwise would never have done. The ambience, the smiles, the food is something to go by. Every guest/friend we have taken to this place have raved about it. Highly recommend.

Highly recommended by the locals at the Market, we grabbed two seats at the bar (first come first serve) as they were booked with reservations until 9pm! Vast drink selection and amazing chips on the bar. I had the homemade Tagliatelle wtih clams, whtie wine sauce, chili flakes, cherry and heirloom tomatoes....might be the best dish I have ever had!... More

When we first walked into Downtown Grocery, I was a bit grumpy. It was crowded and noisy. Some things I fancied to eat were marked off the board. However, it didn't take long to have that grumpy feeling replaced by delight. I went in looking for comfort food. I was pushed off that spot, and was happier for it! On... More

My wife said after leaving Downtown Grocery: "That was the best meal I ever had." I replied: I am so thrilled they offer great vegetarian options along with their usual fare. We had two different three course meals off their set menu and a couple of Martini specials. The portions were just right . The wait staff are very friendly... More

This is one if the best restaurants I have ever experienced. When you walk into this rustic quaint restaurant, you are immediately greeted by friendly staff. The specials of the day are written on a blackboard in the entrance of the restaurant which is then coupled with their regular menu. We began with the heirloom tomato salad with ricotta, the... More

We thought the menu and prices were equivalent to Ny city prices unfortunately your not in ny city. My daughter is a vegetarian there wasn't anything on the menu but, desert for her. It was crowded, hit and quite frankly the food was mediocre
