Description: Amy's creative approach to combining ingredients results in an intriguing and delicious menu. Enjoy a memorable fine dining experience while relaxing in our rustic cobblestone walled restaurant and greenhouse garden room. Our broad wine list and extensive selection of spirits will provide just the right accompaniment for your meal. And as a reward for eating all your veggies, you should treat yourself to a delicious homemade dessert. Afterwards, feel free to stop in at our spirited local tavern for an after dinner drink or a game of darts, with live music in the tavern on most Friday evenings.

The menu had so many good things it was hard to decide on something. They had a meatloaf special which we both had and it was like eating homemade food. The dessert we had was Blueberry crunch and that was excellent but big enough for 2 people to eat.

Hello:
My wife and I had dinner at the Perfect Wife after a day of driving the byways of Vermont. Everything was delicious but I think our favorite was the clam cakes. Awesome! The restaurant has a lot of character and we enjoyed our dinner and will visit again.

Take care,
Kevin

The menu is interesting, the dishes very inventive. Some of the food delivered on the promise, but others really didn't. Loved the eggplant fries w curry dip, but our entrees were underwhelming. I truly feel promise here, but the menu needs to be edited so that the kitchen can prepare fewer dishes really well.
Important note: the formal restaurant was not open the night we went so we dined in the tavern. Different menu and experience I've been told.

I always have a good time at The Perfect Wife. It is a Restaurant/Tavern that offers two different experiences: more formal dining downstairs, and a casual dining experience with frequent live music in the Tavern upstairs with beautiful outdoor patio (covered) attached. I don't get in there too much, but I love the atmosphere in the Tavern, it is warm and inviting, and it thrives with music and life. The food and the bartenders (Melissa, Kelly and Greg) are always great! My favorite dishes are the "Teriyaki Chicken and Noodle Salad" (yum!), and the "Nacho Mama". We usually go with a small group of ladies and share our favorites, and the food is consistently delish.
