“Friday dinner”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2011

The bar area had a nice atmosphere and is centrally located at the hotel, but the dining area seemed a little too sterile while the service was slow. Food was very good, although mostly comfort food.

“Outstanding food, service and view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2011

Two dinners, one breakfast buffet and a table in front of the picture window with an incredible view. Add impeccable service, (thank you, Justin and Max), and a carefully prepared meal and lovely presentation. That is what we experienced on our recent visit to The Tavern. The filet mignon was cooked exactly as my husband requested it and my salmon was moist and perfectly cooked. Our water was continually refreshed and the house wine was quite good. I will certainly come back the next time we visit the White Mountains

“Excellent Food, Good Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2011

Our experience was very good and so was the food. We enjoy the quietness of the Tavern and have no complaints. While it is not a "mountain-top experience" per se, it is a great place to dine. The restored Mountain View Resort is quaint and relaxing and substantially improved over the years from when it was first renovated.

“Delicious and special”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2011

My Italian pasta loving daughter was in heaven with her order of butternut squash ravioli and her dad concurred. The chicken pot pie was thick and tasty and was made from a recipe that belonged to the the chef's grandmother. My son's shrimp scampi and linguini was more than he could eat. The kid's menu offered some of the usual fare but also included grilled salmon and the chef would accommodate any requests. He came out and talked to the kids about their food preferences and brought them some variations they had not expected.

The desserts were not as spectacular as the dinner. The crust on the berry pie was too sticky and the bread pudding had a strange tartness and the sorbet/cake parfait was ok but not great.

For breakfast, we ordered the buffet and were happy to find out that any menu item could be added to the buffet choices.

For a more intimate dinner, ask to be seated in the stunning wine cellar - at no extra charge.

Disclosure: I was invited to dine here as part of a press trip. The opinions are my own and cannot be bought.
