“Tops in every way”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

Definitely the best restaurant in Manchester. Food and service are A+. I'd take the drive, just to eat there. Make a reservation days in advance so as not to be disappointed.

“Wonderful food in a small town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

It is really hard to believe that a restaurant the quality of Silver Fork can be found in rural Vermont. The amazingly diverse menu literally has something for everyone. There are a dozen different appetizers and a dozen different main courses from which to select. Likewise, there is a good selection of wines, both read and white, all of which are available either by the glass or bottle. There is also an array of cocktails available if you're not in the mood for wine. I found the food quality, taste and presentation to be absolutely first class. The staff is super friendly and knowledgeable.

This is a tiny restaurant and it books up. Call and book a table as soon as you have an inkling that you would like to dine at the Silver Fork. If you are in this part of the country, it is well worth a special trip.

“NOW......this IS special!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

The Silver Fork has to be the number 1 restaurant in Manchester VT, an absolute MUST if you enjoy beautifully prepared and presented food through the whole menu, but you will have to book early. With just 6 individual dining tables and 6 seated at the bar, the restaurant is small. We managed to book two seats at the bar, nice to chat with bar tenders through the evening and with our fellow diners sat on either side of us swapping stories of the day's events. A lovely atmosphere, reasonably informal dress code in a restaurant that might suggest something more formal. If only it were closer to home!

“A Must”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

Absolutely a must if visiting the Manchester area. We sat at the bar and enjoyed fabulous wines, appetizers and excellent entrees. The atmosphere is down to earth yet upscale at the same time which adds to the overall ambiance. The restaurant is chef owned and the food is really superb.

“Best in Manchester”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

We have eaten at the Silver Fork on a few different occasions, each time we have had excellent food and service. A few recommendations, first, book as early as possible. The restaurant isn't large and fills up very quickly both in and out of season. Next, the bartenders make and create great cocktails so either walk or have a designated driver. Finally, the bread pudding is incredible and large enough to share. Enjoy!!!
