    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 10/10/2014
    The food and atmosphere were outstanding. The only criticism is we felt a bit rushed. We ordered lunch and within five minutes it was on our table. We finally asked our server if we could have a little more time and she was quite nice in accomodating us but it was unpleasant that we had to ask. Such a nice place should be enjoyed by the diners with time allowed to relax and digest.

    The food was good but the room lacked the ambience of what it had been. No table linens, table top made of plastic, room lacked any charm. Service was poor: waiter had no personality, was slow and unresponsive. For what should be one of the better restaurants in the area, this was a disappointment. It was more expensive than the best restaurant in the area, Simon Pierce in Quichee.

    My husband's veal was reportedly delicious. My chicken bolognese was mediocre We also had Sunday brunch here and it was pretty bad. Made to order omelet was tiresome to wait for and cold in the center. Hash browns were stone cold. I wanted to give the overall experience 3 stars. But couldn't take back one after typing it in. I would not recommend the Red Rooster to anyone and will not eat here again

    Lovely setting, but food was pricy for what it was. Pheasant breast was dry and unremarkable. Scallops were delicious as was the asparagus soup. Service was excellent and our waiter aimed to please. But for the price, the area restaurants do better.

    My husband and I went to the Red Rooster to celebrate our anniversary, based on recommendations from family and friends about the restaurant. However, we were very disappointed with our experience. The quality and execution of our food was inconsistent and the service was incredibly slow. Our server admitted that they had the "Monday night team" in the kitchen, which doesn't make a paying customer feel great (especially when this customer drove an hour and paid ~$150 for the meal). It was disappointing that we were celebrating a special day and yet had a luckluster experience.

    Maybe it was a busy night for them but I did not have as good of a dining experience as my prior visit. Food was good but not great. Service was slow. I love the fact that they have their own garden from which they get a lot of their vegitables but after hearing the servers repeat that speal to every surrounding table it gets a bit old. My experience the week prior was wonderful and I will likely go back but will lower my expectations.

    My husband and I went for lunch at the Red Rooster in the lovely Woodstock Inn. We were seated in a corner table near other couples. Our server was friendly and efficiently took our drink and lunch orders. My husband had the turkey Reuben with a side salad and I had a large salad with greens and strawberries with grilled salmon. Both were excellent, albeit a bit pricey. However, we had to ask for my husband's sandwich since my salad was delivered at least 5 minutes before his meal. A small error since the meal was so good. We would also like small children to be in a totally separate dining area since a few were a bit loud. Keeping families separate would reduce the chance of other diners being disturbed by the noise of children.

    For a dinner to celebrate my daughter's graduation, this could not have been more perfect! The room was lovely, the staff was friendly, knowledgeable and thoughtful, and the food was delicious. While set in a New England inn, the Red Rooster is as sophisticated as a great New York restaurant. We can't wait to return.

    Ambiance, appearance, and service were excellent. However, the food (at least for that night) seemed lack-luster compared to the dinner fare I have had at the Quechee Inn and Simon Pearce. The appetizer was a pear-onion tart which was good, but the entree was simpler than expected. It consisted of a vegetable soup with a bland broth and two pieces of flat bread with melted cheese - not a level of sophistication and flavor I expect for the price range.

    This restaurant/hotel is in an amazing little town and faces the a quintessential small-town park. The building looks rustic but is immaculately well maintained and features a pretty modern design on the interior. The restaurant was fairly large and on a Monday night was almost completely empty. We were not disappointed though - it was quiet, we got attention from our waitress (she made excellent recommendations), and all of the food from the salads to the main courses and dessert was delicious. I was concerned about the food because I had read other reviews saying the quality is inconsistent, but we both had excellent dishes all night. Food wasn't the best I've ever had and felt slightly overpriced, but not too badly. Great ambiance!

    The filet mignon was gristly (manager took it off the bill...good). Ordered a hot fudge sundae for dessert and it took a long time to get it and then it was the wrong thing. They reordered and it again took too long to get it.

    We ate out the first night there at a local competitor , thinking a nice romantic meal. It fell far short of expectations. We wish that we had eaten to nights at the Woodstock Inn. They have two restaurants and we should have eaten at one one night an then the other. The restaurant has a peaceful, sophisticated look with white birch trees the focus of attention. The entree selection was a nice mix of a couple seafood, meat selection and a vegetarian. I like when menus have about 12 selection. I feel like the food is fresh and carefully prepared. All was a delight. At times the restaurant was full & it still seemed relaxing as we were there for an anniversary & were looking for a quiet time. We can be critical when needed... No need here!

    What could be nicer than being able to enjoy a wonderful dinner--both food and wine selections are outstanding--and never having to leave the inn where a delightful bedroom is only steps away. Such is the good fortune of guest of the Woodstock Inn. The first night I opted for a steak after the drive north to the Inn and it was prepared as I request and presented beautifully. Dessert of ginger and molasses bread pudding was remarkably light for such a selection. Service was pleasant and the ambience enhanced by the wintery view which was pretty to view from the warmth of our table, especially with the knowledge we had an inside path to our room. We opted to return the next night and were equally pleased with our seafood selections.

    We had a good dinner. I had the salmon and my husband had the braised ribs. We got our appetizers at a reasonable time but it took forever to get our entrees for some reason. It was very convinent for us to eat there because we were staying at the Inn. The Sunday brunch looked very good. The breakfast was very good!

    The Woodstock Inn for many years was known foe elegant romantic evenings. Since the Great Recession of 2008 they have dialed back the decor to clean modern efficient dining for Hotel guests. The food is good but gone is the elegance of a bygone era. The prices are has high as they were in the old days. Dinner was just not as satisfying with little ones running around.

  • Disappointing restaurant in a charm
    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 2/28/2014
    Firstly, the decorator missed the mark by designing a modern look that is not particularly warm and comfortable and doesn't complement the Vermont village atmosphere.. The ambience is upscale and dimly lit, and the booths so large that waitstaff couldn't reach each place. The service was sloppy and rushed (I always hate to see some places being cleared before everyone is done eating), but the food was nicely plated and the soup hot. They could do a much better job with this location.
