This is truly a special gastronomic feast. The Silver Fork is a very small restaurant with a BIG menu that appeals to everyone. We started with Shitake mushrooms with goat cheese and carmelized onions. Unbelievable. Then we had smoked salmon with avocado and mango. Scrumptious. I had the crab cake with shoe string potatoes which were delicious and my husband... More

We traveled 4 hours from the Boston area to sample the offering at this restaurant. We were not disappointed. The food, service and ambiance were exceptional. The appetizers were a great sampling - the fois gras with mango plate was an outstanding combination of tastes and textures. Each of us had four different entrees and there was a significant competition... More

The food we enjoyed at the Silver Fork stands comparison with meals we have enjoyed at top London restaurants, and we certainly didn't expect to find a restaurant this good when we asked for advice on where to eat in the area. Nor did we realise how lucky we were to be able to get in (two seats at the... More

My companion and I had one of the best meals we have ever had! The restaurant is quite small, 6 tables seating 20 people and 6 chairs at the bar. Reservations are a must; we made ours 4 weeks in advance. We were seated at a small table for two and Melody, the owner, came over to take our drink... More

The hardest part of eating here is deciding what to order. The Maryland Crabcakes were delicious. The service was outstanding. Our waiter was very personable and knowledgable of all the dishes on the menu. He made great recommendations. There was a great selection of fancy drinks. My wife loved the salted caramel martini. Make sure to make reservations early because... More

Everything from the owners who wait tables, prepare the fine cuisine, to the charm of the small dining room and the interesting guests has me wanting to return ASAP! The food was amazing. The sangria was fantastic. The waitstaff/owners were movers and shakers. To add to our anniversary dining experience, they sent us off with a small bottle of complimentary... More

We had very high expectations given NY Times mention in their "36 hours" series, and those were not quite met. Still we had a pleasant if unexceptional meal and it may be the best option in town.

We've been going to Manchester regularly for the past 12 years and this is by far the BEST place we've been to! We did sit at the bar but it was totally delightful. We ate our entire appi, entree and dessert! Everything was outstanding! We've already made our next reservation!

Manchester, Vermont has no shortage of excellent restaurants. The Silver Fork is unique among them. With only 6 tables and a small bar, service is personal and exceptional. Reservations are a must! Check out the restaurant's web site (www.thesilverforkvt.com) for some background on the husband and wife team who provide the talent and creativity behind the menu. Our party of... More

If you can get a reservation then you win! My wife and I went to Manchester on a whim, checked Trip Advisor and called this restaurant at 4:30. The only availability they had left was 2 at the bar at 5pm. So happens, that fit our plans perfectly and we were part of the lucky few who got to enjoy... More
