My husband and I ate here during a weekend getaway at the very end of May 2014. The room in which we ate was just gorgeous and super romantic. The service was excellent. My husband started with the tomato bisque. The server brought two spoons, which I thought was very nice. Good thing, too, because I pretty much stole the... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a wonderful review! We take such pride in our little establishment and it means so much to us to get such positive feed back. We do have a special ambiance that is unique to most restaurants, very romantic in our inside fireplace dining rooms and more casual (but breathtaking... More

Our grandson was married in Quechee last March. The rehearsal dinner was at The Parker House. We filled the restaurant and the service and the food were wonderful. In 2013, we had dinner on the porch the night of the balloon fest and the balloons went by a eye level. It was fabulous. Unfortunately, the balloons didn't go up this... More

Had the pan-seared bass last night and woke up thinking about it! Parker House and Alex NEVER FAIL! Service and hospitality was spot on! Thank you for a wonderful night with friends! Joie

We had drinks on their beautiful porch before eating at Simon Pearce. The drinks were very good - I suspect that this is the much better restaurant, too. If I were to go to this area again, I would definitely book dinner here and not at Simon Pearce. Good, and funny, service, too.

Just back from our second visit to the Parker House Inn. From the ambiance to the wait staff to the creative menu, it is one of our favorite places to dine. Wish we lived closer.

we cannot understand the number of high quality reviews this restaurant is getting, but, (caveat) we are new yorkers and we are spoiled with really good food. You will pay NYC prices at the parker house but you will not get NYC quality food. The chef clearly knows how to prepare proteins ( our salmon and duck were nearly perfectly... More

The restaurant is next to Simon Pearce so the competition is great. reservations are a must especially on week-ends. The meal was outstanding but the service was slow. Not a problem for us as we were not in a rush. Very well worth the wait.

My friends and I stumbled upon this restaurant while visiting Simon Pearce. The host was especially welcoming and accommodating. We had a few drinks in the bar and then dinner in front on the fireplace in the dining room. The food and service was outstanding! The heirloom tomato soup and goat cheese tart were memorable and I highly recommend! The... More

Thank you so much for the excellent review! All of us at our little inn work very hard to please our guests on every level. We were particularly busy that holiday weekend, so I apologize for the service being a little on the slower side. Most Winter Weekends no reservations are needed, unless it is a holiday. The Summer and... More

What a Grand Experience!! People have been telling us to go for years and try the food. We were enthusiastically welcomed by Adam (co-owner with chef/wife) and we had a great time. We had appies and drinks served by the wonderful, friendly, beautiful Maya. She made all the right choices and her description of the dishes were mouth watering. We... More
