“Wonderful food!!”
Reviewed 10 December 2012

Visited Rutland Vermont with family and friends this past weekend. This restaurant was recommended by locals and we were all very pleased! Austrian
food was wonderful, service was good with a great atmosphere. Prices were a little high but this is ski season in Vermont!

“Nice atmosphere and that's about it.”
Reviewed 5 November 2012

This restaurant is located in an old house. As a result it has a very warm and homey atmosphere, but that's about all that this restaurant has going for it. The service was very poor, with no requests for appetizers. Similarly, the menu was fairly limited - it's never a good sign when several "specials" are just repeated from the standard menu.

I had the duck, which was OK, but lacked any modern or inspired presentation. It was a bit like eating duck a l'orange in the 70s. The salad was very basic and unimaginative and looked like it had been thrown together as an afterthought. The side order of spatzle (Austrian pasta) was awful - overcooked and stuck together.

I don't intend on ever eating here again. There are much better restaurants in the Rutland/Mendon area - Table 24 and Little Harry's being two of them.

“A Bad experience”
Reviewed 10 October 2012

Having made a reservation and arriving only 5 minutes early we were very surprised to find that the Chef had closed the kitchen. We could see people still eating inside. After banging on the door a young lady informed us that the kitchen was now closed and provided no explanation. Since there are few restaurants in the area this created a significant problem at 7 30. Not a pleasant way to be treated.
