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

We were very lucky to get a last minute booking at this fabulous restaurant - a booking is essential. It is fine dining in a comfy atmosphere. We had a dainty amuse bouche followed by scallops for me and a Cobb salad with pheasant for my husband. The serving staff were very helpful and checked with the Chef to ensure... More

Elegant dinning in their "fine dining" section. We had a most amazing dinner. Excellent service. We sat by the window and tried to eat slowly... We can't say enough, just a most wonderful enchanting dining experience.

The old fashioned store front looked out on the restored Victorian town fountain. The open dining area with artwork was comfortable. The Burgundy braised lamb leg torchon was beautiful to look at and was tasty without the mouth feel of lamb fat. A tasty surprise was the house salad served in an Asian style. The lettuce and cucumber slices were... More

Really great - inventive food in a tiny town. I dine in NYC often and this restaurant compares with some of the best that I have been to. Service was excellent. Décor is lovely as is the open kitchen.
