We ate in the lounge area at Pangaea, recommended by our host at our B&B. Loved the atmosphere, as well as the great food. They were busy so service was not especially fast, but as we were in no hurry, we just enjoyed the ambiance. We did not have reservations but that was not a problem, we got a table... More

I held the rehearsal luncheon for our son's wedding at this restaurant and it was wonderful! Lani, one of the managers was extremely helpful and worked with me on menu choices, timing and even provided wild flowers for the tables. All our guests commented on how delicious the food was and we couldn't be more pleased. Both the food and... More

Every part about this dining experience was lavish and wonderful - from the starter to the salad to the entree. We were blown away by the quality of the food - far superior to the Pangaea Lounge next door which we sampled a few nights later.

Pangea Lounge is the bar/lounge attached to Pangea Restaurant. The bar is small with several tables. The place has a very comfortable feeling with a bit of style. The staff was both very friendly, personable, and professional. They operate on a team approach, so you never have to wait for "your" waitperson. We had three people, including the bartender making... More

I ate at the lounge yesterday. Firstly, my waitress, Bernedette, was excellent. She read off the specials and told me to leave room for pie, which I did! Not so coincidentally, she saved the last piece of apple for me. My drink, The Weekender, was the right kind of strong and the garnish of a warm piece of bacon....I died!... More

Ate here at the lounge 4 years ago and found the place, food and people a delight. A surprising opportunity in the food desert of Bennington. Last night was like a meal at my boyhood friends table. His mom could not cook either. The cheese tray way not well thought out, my pork tenderloin anything but tender and was covered... More

Pangea lounge is a great place to hang out with friends and colleagues. Spent a couple hours with friends from work, just relaxing and enjoying good spirits and great food. Had our own little dining area. Our waiter was very attentive, like we were the only patrons there.

Came for meeting. Staff was very helpful. Very good drink selection. Great atmosphere fun place. Food was very good but not a home run. Pork over cooked but still good. Vegetable sides a little plain. I enjoyed the meal and atmosphere. Reasonable option if in Bennington area.

Wonderful experience from start to finish. Dishes were well-made and the presentation on the plate was top notch. Service was professional and flawless. Atmosphere in old converted store front with sparse bold art pieces created sensation of a fine restaurant in Manhattan-minus the traffic. Scallop entree was generous and perfectly cooked. My companion order the filet mignonette rare and it... More

I reviewed the Pangaea lounge a while ago, but after a visit with friends to the "fine dining" Pangaea I'm ready for an update. Starting with the positive, although the building seems a bit ramshackle, the interior of the dining room was nice; not too noisy, space between tables, pleasant decor and ambiance. The wait staff were knowledgeable and attentive... More
