First visit for one of us in more than 40 years. "New" owners (33 years) have turned it into a destination. We had a lovely New Years Eve experience. Great service. Creative menu, perfectly executed. Wrapped up with a fascinating discussion with Gil, the owner. He is a treasure trove of history, especially about the South.

We will be back soon to Stone Soup. Our waitress Virginia was amazing. She had her training at Simon Pearce Restaurant and was the best. I loved the squash soup and Steve enjoyed the fresh micro greens in his house salad. We had a seared scallop dish and a tenderloin that was incredible. The atmosphere was perfect and even had...

Imagine going on a beautiful ride into the countryside and stopping for dinner at the home of an incredible chef where the server is as welcoming and wise as the food is outstanding. Then add two diners who contribute fascinating conversation to your evening. It really doesn't get any better than this. First we met our server, Victoria, who made... More

Stone Soup is one of our very favorite places in the area. The menu is small but EVERYTHING is excellent. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming. Gil, one of the owners, is a wonderful person. And they always try to accommodate their guests. Well worth a visit.

Yummy dinner by the fire at stone soup. There is something on their menu for everyone. Always love the grilled lamb and amazing chutneys that they make to go with it.

Once you find this magical Vermont restaurant you will never forget it! You feel instantly at home when you walk through the door and, if you go on a cool fall night, the fireplace draws you in like a magnet. The owners are genuinely happy to see you and they and their staff are delightful. But you go for the... More

The Stone Soup Restaurant is located in Strafford, VT., not far from the Justin Morrill homestead. We have been going there for dinner for many years and have always enjoy excellent meals. The menu is written on chalkboards throughout the restaurant. My husband and I were joined by friends last evening for another delicious meal. Our friends arrived ahead of... More

I hadn't dined here since my old hippie days in the 70's. Back then, Stone Soup was THE extraordinary "health food with style" restaurant in central Vermont. I still remember their carrot soup. We revisited this hidden oasis in Strafford only recently and found that it has certainly become more upscale and sophisticated. But so have we. Go find this... More

Our party of 4 had an excellent dinner at Stone Soup. I loved my Burmese Stew, with succulent hunks of local pork, an amazing blend of spices such as lemon grass, all over Basmati rice - who would have thought a small Vermont restaurant could do this so well! Friends had large, tender scallops in light curry sauce & salmon... More

Just realizing I've been reviewing restaurants and hotels around the country and never stopped for a moment to recognize my favorite place close to home. Stone soup is located about 20 minutes from my home, about half as far as any of the more prominent "city" restaurants in Hanover, NH or Barre/Montpelier, Vermont. We have been coming here a couple... More
