Description: Simon Pearce Restaurant, recently voted one of America’s Most Romantic Restaurants by Travel and Leisure and Best of New England, VT 2011: Meal with a View, offers Creative American cuisine utilizing fresh local ingredients, thoughtfully prepared and attentively served in a classic restored Mill overlooking the Ottauquechee River. The staff motto is "quality without pretense." The dining room is casually elegant with views overlooking the waterfall and covered bridge. Recipient of Wine Spectator's "Best of Award of Excellence" since 1993, they offer a series of wine dinners monthly from November through May. They feature handmade glassware and pottery, which you can observe being made in their on-site glass and pottery workshop at The Mill. Enjoy their retail shop before or after you dine. Reservations are not accepted for lunch but are accepted for dinner. The restaurant will do their best to accommodate requests but does not guarantee any specific seating.

“Fine dining, great ambiance, local food, spectacular wine list”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Everything about Simon Pearce is first class, from the setting, ambiance, waitstaff, delicious food, to great wines. We have dined here many times, but my first review. We have never been disappointed. I think it is a great value for the pricing. Who would guess that there would be such fine dining in Vermont. The restaurant will not disappoint! If you want a quiet lunch overlooking a special Vermont river, waterfall, and covered bridge, make a trip here. We usually come here on our anniversary for an evening dinner, as diners all receive a wonderful meal with fabulous service from knowledgeable waitstaff? We love it!

Reviewed 13 July 2014

This restaurant is lovely and their store with the beautiful glasses pieces are amazing. We loved our dinner from the tuna, roasted duck to the salmon. Our dessert was the white chocolate mouse cake with was fantastic. We also recommend their own label wine.

“A little pricey”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

For the portions you're served, it's a little pricey. The view is fab if you get seated by the windows overlooking the waterfalls. The restaurant is inside the store, so you can check out their glasswares before or after your meal.
