In the Middlebury area there are limited options but a few very good ones. However having been to most of them Tourterelle continues to be my favorite. This is where I always take visitors, speakers at the College and friends. We have never been disappointed. The place aims for a French Country Inn environment and succeeds. It is a comfortable...

I was hesitant to go because I had heard it was a bit pricey. However, it was not very different than other Middlebury fare and it was worth every penny. I had the special glass of red wine, and it was the best wine I have ever had. Food was delicious. Dessert was even better. I strongly suggest everyone goes... More

All courses were outstanding - salad, main course, and dessert. Bouillabaisse and salmon were delicious and artfully presented. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and courteous. It was a great evening. We will return - again and again!

My husband and I took my Dad here for brunch. The food was delicious! I had the breakfast crepe and my husband absolutely enjoyed the crepe with venison sausage. Dad had the French toast and is still raving about it! We will definitely return when we visit again!

We loved the setting but the rest was just average. Wine list is very over priced, our food was not great.

We arrived on a busy Saturday night at the start of fall foliage season. I'd made a reservation but they seemed surprised at our name, however the owner quickly seated us and just as quickly got us water and drinks. Extra bonus points for the bartender who took up the challenge of making something fun and non-alcoholic for me-blueberry mojito.... More

Dining at any restaurant on parents weekend at Middlebury is akin to dining at our favorite bistro on New Year's Eve-could the kitchen take the pressure? I have to say that Tourterelle performed admirably but was lacking that tiny bit of finesse where very good and satisfying turns to excellent and memorable . I was left wondering if the experience...

First of all, this restaurant is in a beautiful setting on Rte 7, about 8 mins north of Middlebury College. The grounds and views of the mountains are breathtaking. Inside, you are welcomed into a charming home with different dining rooms. The staff is lovely and the food different and delicious. We enjoyed the lamb ragu special, a cheese burger... More
