“Very nice trendy restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

We went for dinner on a Saturday night without reservation. After a drink at the bar, we were seated at a nice booth. The menu offers interesting combinations of very fresh ingredients - Vermont style. The food is simple but creative and uses excellent fresh ingredients (for example the sauce on the massive pork chop I ate was absolutely delicious, made of basel, oil, garlic, pepper etc.). The starter was an interesting tuna tartare in a warm avocado. Different but interesting and good. The service was very good and friendly. The wait in between courses was a bit too long. The overall atmosphere was trendy and very nice. We will definitely go back.

“Great New restaurant in Stowe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

What a surprise and on a Sunday night!
Just great food prepared with new twists: grilled calamari instead of battered and fried, beet salad with fresh locally grown produce and yummy seasoning. Loved my swordfish, great wine, friendly bar, table close to window on main street. Great way to end a rainy day!

“Great Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

I really liked this place. We sat at the bar and I ordered the smoked meat burger which I ordered medium rare and was excellent although it was a little over cooked, but it still tasted good. The bartender was very nice and friendly and helpful with our selections. The atmosphere is very upscale and modern and comfortable. I felt like I was in the "city". I would eat here again for sure.

“Best Restaurant in Stowe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

We discovered this restaurant via Trip Advisor despite staying almost opposite. The design is very stylish and contemporary but from the outside can easily be mistaken for a gallery or office. The food was amongst the best we have eaten not just in Stowe but in he whole of the US! Great menu choices with quality ingredients. Very good staff and excellent wine selection. The restaurant can be busy as it is very popular with locals, but this creates a good buzz. A 'must visit' if you are in Stowe or the surrounding area.
