Diner Reviews
  • "It was wonderful! Had never been here an very much needed a away break, would very much like to stay some time out of my price range but maybe some day. Brunch was well worth the money, staff in the dining room an hostess were outstanding. nice to hear yourself by name not a "guest". Two small downfalls a couple "hot items were not but barely warm. My valet did not know you were serving brunch! Hope to see this place again!"

  • "The food was great and the services was spot on. We were a party of 6 and everyone enjoyed their dinner. Solstice sits at the base of the ski mountain so the views are beautiful. We would definitely go back."

  • "Given the venue in a new luxury resort at Stowe, we were expecting a much better dining experience. The whole meal felt like we were in a mediocre tourist trap instead of in a fine dining restaurant. Service was slow and the ambiance was depressing. If you stay at the lodge, drive to town for a much better meal."

  • "Food was good but not great, found it to be very over rated. It was not the fantastic dining experience expected. The prices were however that of a high dining facility."

  • "Solstice is a well-done, but typical, apres ski resort dining experience. Featuring local VT ingredients and a few exotic flavors, the portions were a bit modest. Venison was a bit overcooked and berry sauce was tasty, but scant, leaving the meal dry. Roast scallops were done to perfection. It was expected to have a fine dining restaurant at the 'new' Stowe resort, but our expectations were higher than they should have been. Interior design is stunning wood and slate, with a soaring ceiling and mountain views. The resort is definitely family friendly, but can we ask parents and kids to leave their iPhones and iPads in their rooms and practice the art of conversation during dinner. At the very least, turn off the flash!"

  • "Everything from the wine to the amuse was perfect! My steak was cooked exactly as requested and the truffle Mac and cheese was unlike any other I've had before. My boyfriend ordered venison, a dish I normally shy away from, but I tried his and it was absolutely delicious. It was an elegant dining experience and we will definitely be returning to Solstice on our next trip to Stowe!"

  • "We're a group of 4 dining together.....great appertisers.....one salmon dinner was outstanding,one pot roast was outstanding,two seared scallop dinners OK but scallops needed to be cooked more thoroughly as they had cold centers and not edible ...deserts very good"

  • "Great location, but the food and service has gone downhill since our last visit. I wonder if they may have a new chef as the food has declined so significantly. Even the cocktails have gone down."
    Dined on 11/28/2013
  • "Menu was limited and tryinng to hard to be interesting. Braised duck legs were charred and dry. Salmon portion tiny. Service was disinterested. Cocktails were watery. Doesn't say much when best part of the meal was the a la carte mashed potatoes. Even the croutons on the caesar salad were stale. For these prices it would be better to dine off the premises."

  • "If you are staying at Stowe Mountain Lodge, great option (only?) to dine and stay in. Great appetizers, nice main entrees. Awesome view."

  • "This is a lovely restaurant, reminiscent of all big Mountain Resort places. The food was very good. My lamb was cooked perfectly as was my husband's duck. They seem to specialize in Duck as there were four different dishes on the menu, and they all looked very good. Our waitress did an amazing job describing the dishes with such gusto. Try their blueberry cobbler! It was delicious!!! Just a lovely relaxing evening, to finish off a delightful weekend!"

  • "We were seated at a very nice, comfortable table for two. The temperature in the large room was comfortabe. The dining room has very large floor-to-ceiling windows that provide a nice view to the landscaped areas outside. The lighting at the table was just right for the occasion. The tables are adequately spaced to provide satisfactory distance between guests. The service was attentive, friendly, and timely. The food was excellent. The pot roast and associated dishes could not have been better. The price was commesurate with the quality of the experience and warranted a generous tip."

  • "This is a restaurant in a posh resort that tries to be fancy but comes off providing good service and good food,nothing spectacular. The waiter was very well trained and attentive without being obtrusive. The food was OK, nothing special. We had the lobster and corn chowder which was great. My surf and turf was OK although I asked for my steak medium and it came well done. The prices reflect their self opinion."

  • "My husband and I had a wonderful dinner at Soltice. Great service. Food was delicious. My husband said his lamb chop was one of the best he had ever had. My scallops were light and tasty-not rubbery which I hate. Cheese plate was really good. Served with a delicious local honey. Dessert was a decadent Chocolate affair."

  • "The salmon was extremely salty, sent back, and had tons of crushed black pepper instead on the second piece"
    Dined on 9/14/2013
  • "This was very good. The wait staff was very attentive and helpful. They made sure what you ordered was what you really wanted. They explained new items that were unfamiliar to us. I was not sure about which wine I wanted to have with dinner. They went out of their way to try to help with the our best choice depending on our taste. They did not go for the more expensive wine, they based it on our description."

  • "Delicious food, well presented, fun staff, unexpected separate GF menu pleased friend with allergy. Happy to have you in town. For me, compares to Michaels and Hen of the Wood. Decor was admired by my designer husband."

  • "Exceptional scallop fare as everything was so tasty and unique. Memorable meal in every respect."
    Dined on 8/16/2013
  • "Yes, beautiful scenery.. Yes, a friendly staff.. but the food as lacking this particular night. Fish over cooked, steak over cooked when we ordered it medium well.. there are so many great options in this area that I would recommend they up the anti!"

  • "The food was god but not great. For the prices, I would have expected better food. The steak was very unremarkable."
    Dined on 7/20/2013
  • "Our dinner was perfect beginning to end. Note only was the food perfect (field green salad, sirloin, whipped potatoes, english green peas, and spinach) but the service was outstanding. I would definitely recommend Solstice. Can't wait to return."
    Dined on 7/14/2013
  • "My wife and I were had a wonderful dining experience over the 4th of July weekend. We appreciates the attention to detail given we had our 19 month old in tow. The food was excellent, but the service was even better."
    Dined on 7/4/2013
  • "The food quality lets the service and ambiance down. The consistently poor execution ruins the local ingredients. Could be fanyastic but is frankly sub par compared to other local options."
    Dined on 5/25/2013
  • "We stayed at the Stowe Mtn Lodge and enjoyed dinner at Solstice to celebrate the graduation of our daughter from U of Vermont. Everything was top notch from the food to the service and the surroundings. The quality of the food was superb and the views while dining were nothing short of spectacular. Expensive, but worth every penny!"

  • "I love the view and the cozy feel. I definitely would return to try more dishes."
    Dined on 3/17/2013
  • "We had reservations for two for Easter Brunch, so may not apply to other dining experiences. It was hard to find parking, so did like valet service. The dining room is pleasant, but would not call view of ski lifts, wooden decks "scenic." The trout, chicken piccata, prime rib, quite good. The lamb & frittata dry & bland. A good green salad and peas/carrots the only vegetable. Melon/cuke salad the only fruit (and melons not ripe). Desserts very good. No bacon or sausage offered. Ham would have been welcome. Main complaint, though, an inattentive server who never oriented us to the brunch, who rarely showed up at our table to assist. It took forever to get entree plate removed to have space for dessert or to get a 2nd cup of coffee."

  • "Very high end comfort food after a day of skiing. We especially enjoyed the local cheese selections (chosen by the waiter, who threw in an additional choice of blue cheese for me when he realized that I liked it even if my husband did not). I had the duck breast and my husband had the pot roast and they were both delectable -- if you are going for volume, get the pot roast."
    Dined on 3/29/2013
  • "Very good food and excellent wine list and sommelier... he steered us to a very reasonably priced French white and we really appreciated that. It is nice to find a really excellent restaurant right in your hotel - often not the case. My one negative - menu was pretty meat-laden - I would have loved to see a couple of fish dishes that did not have meat in them!!"
    Dined on 2/2/2013
  • "For the price, there are tastier places to go. Bland salads (two of them). Giant comfort food portions -- but not spectacular flavor."

  • "Convenient place to go when at Stowe mountain. Way overpriced for what itis, many good options locally."

  • "Overall a good meal if you're staying at Stowe Mountain Lodge. Not sure I'd drive up the mountain to dine there."
    Dined on 2/11/2013
  • "The overall experience at the lodge was good but I would like to see Solstice come up a notch in terms of food and service. I had an appetizer shrimp special and sirloin steak, both of which were pretty uninspired. I also thought it was odd to have so many servers interact with us during the course of the meal - no less than 6. On the upside it's a nice location and atmosphere and the fire pit outside the window was a nice touch."

  • "This restaurant gets worse every year. They do a good job with fish dishes. i.e., cooked to the right temperature with a tasty broth. They do not do that well when asked to order something off menu. For example, we asked them if they could do a sauteed broccoli with garlic and oil instead of spinach. They said no problem, however, when the dish arrived, you immediately realize that their line is not very experienced with basic cooking skills and doing something they have not practiced. The aforementioned dish sauteed broccoli dish arrived with raw garlic and barely sauteed broccoli. We ordered two rare steaks, but which arrived medium-well. They replaced the steaks, but with no apology from the manager."

  • "It would be nice to have this restaurant nearby, but to have it in the hotel is even better. Quite a bit better than usual hotel fine dining. Casual atmosphere, thoughtfully prepared food with an emphasis on local ingredients which are really superb in the surrounding area and Vermont in general."
