The hostess and waitress were so kind when we showed up for our reservation only to find that we had no reservation! (Second time that I’ve had problems with Open Table) And I was beside myself with embarrassment and fear we couldn’t be accommodated. They...we’re able to seat us right away and the service continued to be excellent. The menu has many choices with very affordable prices. We had the short ribs and chicken piccata. Both were generous amounts and very flavorful. We also sampled two of their desserts-cannolis and the flourless chocolate torte. Absolutely delicious. We could not be happier with our meals and service and will definitely return.More

From the outside the establishment may not appeal to most but once you’re inside it’s inviting and a wonderful experience. We were seated in the back room which was quaint and cozy. The restaurant staff were wonderful and very attentive and not on the pushy...side. The drink menu was full of a variety of choices, one being several non-alcoholic drinks to choose from, very fun! We started with the charcuterie board which had many cheeses and meats to choose from, such a great way to start! I had the stir fry, and when they describe it on the menu as spicy, you better believe it! So good! I finished my meal with the signature chocolate cake, oh boy that hit the spot! I recommend a visit to anyone looking for a great suggestion. Enjoy!More

We were in Bennington earlier this month. We ate breakfast at Pangaea 4 times! What I hated about leaving Vermont to return to California was that I wouldn't be going to Pangaea anymore! Absolutely loved the egg, sausage, and cheese breakfast sandwich on Portuguese muffin....And the Cortado coffee was fabulous!More

We dined last night on the deck in the back. It was just perfect -- the service, the food, the ambience! We had enjoyed a meal in your dining room several years ago and I was unaware of the outdoor deck and attractive tables in...the back complemented by the bucolic scenery. Just wonderful. I enjoyed Thai chicken stri-fry and Constant Companion enjoyed the Thai shrimp stir-fr Delicious Terrific Cannolis for dessert. We'll be back soon!More

Pangaea offers a wonderful option to bring fine dining home. We miss going to restaurants, however the Pangaea "take away" menu is a fine alternative. The food is well prepared and delicious. The menu changes periodically. Our Pangaea dinners brought home was a cause to...celebrate.More

Very impressed with this little gem in North Bennington. Very comfortable, low noise level, nice and cozy without being pretentious. I started with the Kale salad which was delicious and only $10--extremely reasonable for the quality of ingredients. My husband and I both had the...Diver Scallops and we both loved every bite. Best sorbet I have ever had. Such a wonderful night out. We will be backMore

Dining at Pangaea is a wonderful experience. The restaurant is small with a low noise level that allows for conversation. The meals are exceptional and beautifully presented. The wine list is very good. Pangaea is the best restaurant option in the Bennington/Southern Vermont area. Original...art work on the walls adds to the lovely ambiance.More

A culinary legend in Southern Vermont, hidden away in North Bennington. Consistently the best food in the area for the last two decades.

I live near the Culinary Institute of America and many graduates open restaurants near me. The chief of Pangaea beats them all. The meal was exquisite . From the presentation of the food to the creative combinations, you will be delighted. I had the duck...beast- cooked perfectly- served with risotto. Green tea creme brulee was a first for me and how inventive! The service too could not have been beat- friendly and helpful. PS check out their very unusual and fun cocktail list!More

There are two restaurants at this location, the original restaurant established many years ago is for “Fine Dining” and next door is the “Lounge”. We used to frequent this establishment fairly often but have not been back until recently to try the fine dining section....Reservations are definitely recommended as we saw people turned away without on. We started off with appetizers which were all the same price and quite tasty. One was a salmon dish and the other a coconut shrimp sushi roll which was quite large. This was followed by a spring roll salad included with each entree which also was quite large and tasty. The two Halibut entree’s we ordered unfortunately came out very dry and did disappoint. The service which was excellent by the way, came through and deducted one of the entree’s off the check. This is when a good server saves the meal from being a disaster and keeps the door open for a future revisit. Next time we will try the Lounge to compare.More

My husband and I were in North Bennington and he had never been to the lounge section of the restaurant. We were both so satisfied with our selections. For a Monday night it was wonderful to see the place hopping! The staff was so accommodating...and knowledgeable about menu items. We'll be going back for sure! Excellent portions for the price! Lunch the next day extended our pleasant experience.More

I ate in the pub area and had a delicious steak. It took ten minutes to order a beverage and then ten more to get the beverage. After ordering, we sat for 55 minutes waiting for dinner. While waiting we asked if they gave bread....The waitress said someone had to ask for it and then 15 minutes later we got a fairly tasteless roll and hard, cold butter. She offered a refill soda and 20 minutes later rage waitress asked how are food was. I mentioned no more beverage. She had forgotten and it took another 5-10 minutes to get that. Even though the food was good, I wouldn't return due to very poor service. We had plans to see a movie and missed it due to the slow service.More
