“Delicious Dinner”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We had a fabulous dinner here--everything on the menu looks good. We didn't have reservations so had to wait in the bar for a table. Not a bad thing since they had live music and interesting locals to chat with. The owner is very friendly and everything is locally sourced. We were impressed!

“Over Rated”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

I am out of step with other reviewers but for good reason. This relatively new restaurant is in the former location of a bakery and cafe. They have done wonders in remodeling. The accoustics, however, are dreadful. In a table of four you can hardly hear yourself think much less your dinner partners. The prices are high, specially for what you get. Entrees start at $19, average about $25 and go as high as $46. These prices are for one dish only, salad and appetizers are extra and run about $7 to $10. Dinner here can easily cost $80 to $100 for two with a glass of wine.

Peasant Restaurant does not have, has ever had, or will ever have a $46 entree on our menu. This reviewer must have mistaken a beautiful Grand Cru Bordeaux, with 8 years of bottle age that we put on our specials board as the $46 item. Our entree menu items range from $18 to $25, with several small plates for starters much cheaper. Specials can run from the mid twenties to $30. Our family always promotes a joyous environment in our Restaurant, self admittedly, it can become boisterous, however, we feel we offer a very special dining experience at very reasonable prices.

“Great Jazz at the Bar”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

We loved the food (especially the Red Hen bread, which we drove up to Waterbury for the next day), and the amazing live jazz in the restaurant. The staff was exceptionally helpful and knowledgeable, and we will most certainly come back the next time we are in Waitsfield.
