“Good restaurant, but wished they had outdoor seating”
Reviewed 25 July 2013

For a restaurant on a mountain top, we thought that there should be a place to eat outside. On this beautiful summer evening, we were disappointed that we ate outside, but the food was good. Best pot roast ever! I would not order the trout again - served with bones and it was rath.er dry. Cheese board is fanastic and waiter was very knowledgable about the local cheese. This is my second time at this restaurant

Thank you for your review of Solstice Restaurant within Stowe Mountain Lodge. Vermont has long had a farm-to-table culture in the way food is prepared and served and we hold those same values. We appreciate our local vendors, including the cheese producers, and happily feature these products in our outlets. We look forward to welcoming you back to Solstice.

“Farm to table cuisine at Stowe Mountain Lodge”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

Fresh, artisinal food abounds at Solstice at the Stowe Mountain Lodge. You expect the locally sourced cheeses, but they also have local charcuterie, other meats, most (if not all) of their produce, and more -- and you can taste the difference. Don't miss the creamed spinach, and the scallops with house cured bacon and corn puree were out of this world. Desserts were definitely the low point; don't bother with those. Get the cheese plate instead. But Solstice is a wonderful dining experience.

“Surprised - again...”
Reviewed 1 July 2013

We were recently in town for the 15th annual Stowe Wine and Food Festival. We came from our home in Sausalito, CA. Farm to table dining is becoming a way of life for us here in the SF Bay Area, but as we learned, it has always been that way in Vermont. We had a chance to eat at the most celebrated restaurants in the area and have to rank Solstice right there with them in every way.

We had five meals there - two breakfasts, one lunch and two dinners. The bacon is to die for and the eggs just tasted "non-institutional" in every way. Solstice is a large restaurant and designed to serve the entire lodge, but the food quality and preparation as well as their detail to food placement/plating is very detailed and unique.

Sure, the food pricing is "big city", but you are receiving the same quality of food that you would anywhere. You certainly don't expect this sort of quality from a ski resort restaurant and that was probably the greatest surprise of all.

Thank you so much for your fantastic review of Solstice at Stowe Mountain Lodge. Vermont has long had a tradition of farm-to-table cuisine and we embrace it as a main philosophy and way of life in our restaurants. Dining in Stowe, Vermont offers many options so we appreciate you taking the time to have not one, but five, meals with us!
