We had the mushroom puff pastry and gnocchi. Dessert was outstanding. Service was perfect and the entire meal was far below the cost at any big town. Drinks were perfect.

The dining room is small and in the days that this was a residence, might have been the parlor or formal dining room, complete with fire place. There is an adjacent room (the library) that can seat a moderate sized party. There is a separate...More

Jessica's staff were friendly and went overboard to satisfy our needs. Even caring for flowers that I ordered for the wife and placing them on table before we arrived for dinner. Breakfast cooked to your specifications and needs. We recommend Jessica's for your next dinner...More

Was delicious. The menu was fairly sparse for choices. It was a nice atmosphere and quiet enough for a romantic meal for two.

I am always happy to hear that our service was good, responsive and friendly. If the server was indeed upset they were absolutely correct in not showing it in the dinning room. We have a service pantry that enters the dinning room through a double...More

The food was exceptionally good. Fine dining at its best. An unexpected treat. From paired wine (recommended by the sommelier ) to an exquisite dessert , the evening was perfect.

A meal at Jessica's Restaurant is always memorable. The recently updated dining room is a reflection of the casual comfort and style of this New England country inn. Jessica's Restaurant is located in the Swift House Inn in Middlebury, Vermont. Jessica's is just two blocks from downtown Middlebury, set in an 1814 stately home, surrounded by beautiful lawns and gardens. Jessica's casual atmosphere is the perfect place for an dinner for two, or a celebratory dinner for four to forty! Come early and enjoy our bar; Tom, with his more than 30 years of bartending experience, can fix you a cocktail or help you choose the right bottle of wine. We have won the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for our wine list for six straight years! We also have local beers on tap including Switchback, from Southern Vermont; and two brews from Middlebury, Wolaver's Organic India Pale Ale and Otter Creek Seasona.
