The food is good, but it is really expensive for what you get. My daughter and I went there for an early dinner she got a burger and I got a soup and a coke. The bill was $100 after tax. It did taste good but not that good. There are other restaurants that serve good food and are not... More

Brunch for two at the bar. From the strawberry mimosa to the Portugese eggs, we enjoyed the hometown food and ambience. Fresh juices with a twist.

Background: Though we have awesome restaurants in the Burlington, Vermont area, we had reason to meet a New Hampshire friend in Montpelier. They choose, Kismet, and though there was a long line (long enough to do some shopping - they texted us when the table was ready), it was well worth the wait. Verdict: All of the dishes we ordered...

Stopped by for a dinner on our way from Montreal to Hanover, NH - it’s a two minute drive off I-89. What a find! It's a really small place. I suspect Fridays get reserved a week or two in advance. The food was excellent all around. We enjoyed every bit. Good selection of wine and beer, too. Do yourself a... More

We had visited Kismet for breakfast and lunch before, but it had been 8 or 9 years. Plus we had never had dinner before. Well, nothing but thumbs up again. I love the fact that the ingredients come from their neighborhood, quite literally, and visiting in August means so much is available. We were in no rush and had a... More

The family and I were driving up to Maine from Montréal, and decided to stop in Montpelier to have some breakfast. We opened up Urbanspoon and saw that this restaurant got rave reviews. The restaurant did not disappoint. It was quite a great brunch. I tried the baguette french toast which was quite delicious. The eggs benedict were great! A... More

The menu was somewhat unique, and the food was very good. The staff were all quite friendly and attentive. The decor was nice, however, the seating is very close. A little loud for us when we were there for brunch on Sunday. I would still recommend this restaraunt

The food was absolutely delicious. I had the sausage, fingerling potato, and grains, topped by a perfectly poached egg. The plate was beautiful, and every bite was wonderful. Yes, it was pricey, but this was a special occasion, a gathering of writer-friends before a book event, so it was worth it. My one caveat was the wait. We allowed 2... More

Food last night was delicious- Well prepared and high marks for presentation. $8 for 8 bites of roasted beet salad. $19 for two ravioli 2 inches in diameter. Luckily I could share my husband's entree. We both had room for dessert and it was very nice. It would have to be a very special night out to go back.
