The Equinox is sooo beautiful! Outside & In. We were in VT. for New Year's Eve/Day. We meandered to Manchester. A wonderful destination. My friends & I had lunch in this gorgeous, beautiful place. We had a perfect seating by the fireplace. Sooo cozy. The waitstaff was exceptional. Chris was our server. A perfect place, perfect service. We had appetizers,... More

Being allergic to garlic, I am always worried about eating at a buffet. Chef Sigal Rocklin made sure I had plenty of choices. When we arrived, she took us on a tour of the offerings. Each item had a card on it that said its name and helpful info like gluten free, no nuts, or garlic free. For the main... More

The Thanksgiving dinner buffet was outstanding. There was a variety of meats, veggies, pastas, seafood, breads, salads, cheeses, marinated veggies, etc. They were all plentiful and delicious. Have been having that buffet either at Thanksgiving or Christmas for the past 20 years. Just wonderful! Great service, too!

It was a memorable Thanksgiving feast at The Equinox this year. The choices were expansive, and the chef sent out separate platters for members of our party with food allergies. Service was top notch. Well done! You really created a Thanksgiving dinner to remember.

Just enjoyed Thanksgiving brunch with my family. Beautiful setting. Excellent selection with something for everyone. Loved the special buffet area for younger kids even though there were none in my party. The food was fine, the service outstanding from the moment we arrived. At $70 pp we expected that mimosas would be included but were not.

We loved the hotel, but both breakfasts we had here were awful. Our server was impersonal, turning away from us before we were even finished placing the order. Never smiled. Buffett was truly average (where did they find such lame tiny grapes?). My quiche was small. The next day we tried to order poached eggs, and they came in a... More

Excellent breakfast buffet! Usual choices but also some special options. You will want to try one of their apple cider donuts with a drizzle of maple syrup on it. So delicous! Bacon and sausages are so good.

The buffet food was good with a lot of variety for the kids. Nice placement of apple and maple themed foods appropriate to area. Wait and omlette staff seemed to have recent turnover and there were some novices having some issues with omlette preparation and dropping plates. Overall good.

My wife and I went to the Colonnade for lunch last Saturday. The service was not up to past experiences. It took a long time to be seated even though there were free tables. The taking and delivery of our order was equally slow if not slower. If the restaurant staff is having a problem, we are always understanding. No... More
