“Still dreaming about our meal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

Loved the ambience, the friendly welcome, the attentive staff, the delicious wine and the unbelievable food. All four of us were very pleased with our appetizers and our meals. Met the owner at the bar at the end of the night and expressed our appreciation for her fine restaurant. We will be back!

“Best restaurant in southwest VT”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

Been eating here for years... moved out of this area some time ago but still enjoy eating here. Atmosphere is nice... that's not why you come here rhough. The food is consistently excellent. I love the schnitzel and spaetzel. The steaks are excellent too. Consistently excellent!

“Great Atmosphere and Delicious Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

This restaurant does not look like much from the road, but don't be fooled......pull in and eat here! The atmosphere is very romantic, with lots of candlelight and rustic furnishings. The food was excellent, and the service attentive and friendly.

“Local consensus: best in town.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

Being foodies, we often ask local restaurant workers where the best places to eat in town. As far as Fine dining this seems to be the place. First of all, it's more eclectic than French. Nonetheless it was excellent. Duck and rabbit were excellent, crab cakes with Asian slaw so so good. Euro salad was yummy. We did not even order their signature dishes of rack of lamb and Dover sole which others have raved. If this is the best restaurant in the area, it's a darn good one.

“Add our voice to the cheers for this very exceptional restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

It just could not have been better. The reputation of this landmark restaurant had beckoned us for several years of summers in Vermont. The distance was not insignificant, and there are a lot of magnificent eating places in and around Manchester. But this time, we drove the additional few miles to experience a marvelous evening of fine dining and pleasing ambiance. Not cheap, of course, but neither are the other gourmet dining spots in the area. My wife and I ordered Red Snapper and Swordfish entrees from the evening special menu. Both were very well prepared and presented. Bananas Chantecleer and Lemon Roulade finished off the experience very nicely. Service was very competent and friendly. This place has earned its fine reputation. We will not hesitate to drive the additional miles in the future.
