“Poor service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

Had reservations. Left standing at the entry way for 20 minutes with empty tables in the restaurant. The hostess went out of her way to ignore us after she said she needed a minute. We ended up walking out after cooling our heels for a long time. And then of couse no call or anything after to apologize. Wont be trying Asta again.

“Delicious and charming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2012

This was a wonderful restaurant for a romantic date. I loved how we were waited on by the owner's wife, while her husband, the chef, was in the kitchen cooking up our meal. The food was unique and delicious and we had three courses. We were also allowed to take our time and relax and enjoy the evening.

“A wonderful surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2012

I can't say enough good about this gem in Southern Vermont. We visited Asta's on a hunch, and I'm glad we did. The ambiance is very welcoming and warm. Fresh flowers on the table, white tablecloths, and tasteful seasonal decorations. I can't say enough on how delicious the food was. Very tender cuts of meat, good portions, fresh vegetables, and expertly prepared. That is saying a lot from someone who grew up in a European household and eats these dishes frequently. Vermont local ingredients were used as well, such as Maple syrup for their salad dressings and fresh Vermont butter for what has to be some of the best dinner rolls I have ever eaten. Service was courteous, efficient, and knowledgeable.

“Simply a very pleasant dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2012

This place has charm, good service, and excellent continental food. Need I say more? OK. It has easy access, good parking, a warm fire with comfortable chairs in front, a cozy congenial atmosphere, a skilled owner/chef with his wife covering the front of the house, rooms upstairs that I haven't seen, and a babbling brook out back. Its better since they took some tables out so diners aren't subjected to the Saturday night crush. And, it's not just Swiss food; your server will gladly explain any dish to you. Don't be afraid to try something new.
