Diner Reviews
  • "We ski at least once a year at Mount Snow and always include a visit to the Hermitage for dinner. We enjoy it so much that usually we stop on our way home to simply Snow Shoe around the property and stop in for a lite lunch or early dinner. This year we arrived during brunch and found it to be fantastic. A visit to the Hermitage is a tradition for us."

  • "I last went to the restaurant many year's ago when it was privately owned. I did like the upgrades to the restaurant and the food was very good. However, our waiter was not very professional. We had to ask him if there were any specials. When asked how one dish was prepared, he said he didn't know....we had to ask if he could find out. Not very attentive for a restaurant that is trying to cater to a high level of diners. Fodd came out immediately after the appetizers. Not enough of time in between course. Very noisy with many kids running around as well. Didn't expect that, but assume it is because of the new ownership deal."

  • "Have eaten here a number of times and absolutely love the food! However, Saturday was a busy busy night and probably explains why our appetizers were served with our dinners :-("

  • "Our family has been going to the Hermitage Inn for dinner for about 4 years. Each time, we have marvelled at the excellent food, gracious welcome and attentive sevice. Not this time. We first had to wait 45 minutes for our table, despite a reservation. The hostesses were not pleasant, would not tell us how much longer we needed to wait and never apologized when we were finally seated. The place was packed, and there were too few servers for everyone there. The food came out willy-nilly, dishes were forgotten, and again, no apologies. Our server tried his best; he explained that the Inn had created a Club, and memebers had flooded the dining room that night. Well, Iam happy they now have a Club, because we will not go back."

  • "The dining room was huge and vacuous. Could have fit another 5 or more tables in there, which gave it a really empty, sterile feeling despite the pretty fireplace. There weren't that many people there when we went, but I would imagine the noise level would have been pretty loud if it was full. They seem to want the restaurant to be a cross between fine dining and family dining which is understandable given the condo complex environment but if you're looking for a romantic evening, it's confusing. The food was good. A little salty. But the prices wee ridiculous. I will say that the one silver lining was that my husband ordered a single malt scotch and the serving they gave him was very generous."

  • "Lovely spot for those in the area. Can be intimate if seated next to the fireplace in lovely enveloping chairs. Can also be good for a family where tables can be made up for larger groups. Food is very nice. Venison bolognase was quite tasty scallop appetizer also recommended. My dining companions also enjoyed their meal. The wine list is extensive be prepared to spend more than a minute making your selection. Very scenic country inn with your expected Vermont surroundings."

  • "I've enjoyed the Hermitage throughout ski season for the past 25 years and thru 3 owners and it has always satisfied. the food is very good and the service is excellent. It has both a pub area and fine dining area, both with their own menus and a superb wine list."

  • "We have always enjoyed dinning at the Hermitage inn and now there is a new chef who we think is better than the previous chef. Menu is a little lighter (not so many exotic meats) which we prefer. We had a group of 5 and we all agreed the food was great. Service on the other hand needs works. One nice new perk is the valet one suggestion would be to add an ability to request car while still inside so people don't have to go into the cold to ask for car"

  • "On a snowy winter day we arrived at the picturesque covered bridge for my husband's 57th birthday. The Inn and Dining room were warm and inviting. The menu is small but had enough variety to satisfy a picky college student, an adventurous carnivore, and myself - a vegetarian. We started off with a cheese plate with local cheeses, all varied from each other and had distinct tastes. It was enough for 3 of us with some to take home! My entree was an imaginative quinoa stuffed squash that I enjoyed because of the addition of a tasty sauce and cranberries studding the stuffing. My daughter liked the venison over pasta and my husband liked the quail. All said, it was expensive, but we desired a special experience and the Hermitage delivered."

  • "the setting was lovely but the food was disappointing...some things like the roasted sprout salad was yummy but the butternut squash soup was reminicent of babyfood. the wine pour was small for the price. since we will be in vt everyweekend thruout the season, we will try it again and definitely want to check out the bar scene."

  • "The Hermitage is a beautiful Inn with excellent service and well prepared food. The views were spectacular on a snowy Sunday morning. Love their bloody marys. My only complaint was that their website said the brunch was one price but when we arrived the price for brunch was almost 20% more. A little expensive for what you received."

  • "My daughters and I ateThanksgiving dinner at the Hermitage, a meal that rarely shows off the chef's skills. The butternut squash bisque was the highlight of the meal: delicate flavor and beautifully presented. The second course, the arugula salad was very good. Too often arugula is bitter but this had a lovely nutty flavor. I do not recall the dressing but it was flavorful without being overwhelming . The dinner was okay. Turkey is turkey. The whipped sweet potatoes were the best part of the dinner. The gravy had a very subtle peppery flavor. The dessert was okay but it did not go beyond that. The meal was traditional but we would have enjoyed a meal that highlighted the chef's abilities more."

  • "The room is elegant, the food was quite good, with fresh ingredients. I was disapponted that a poached lobster on rissoto came without rissoto; when I told our server, he said they weren't doing it with rissoto. I told him that's what the menu said, he laughed and said rissoto should have been in quotes, which made no sense to me. Grudgingly, he did take it back to the kitchen and returned with some fettucine, but the fettucini was bland. Fortunately, when i told the hostess, she was very apologetic, and ended up giving me a partial credit on my bill, and otherwise, the food and service were great, with a very good and reasonably priced winelist, but this problem with my dish is not something that should happen in a high class restaurant.."

  • "Not a lot of fine dining in that part of Vermont, so we were looking forward to our meal. It was good enough, but overreaching: kitchen executed well, but put elements together that did not add much to each other. The substitute plating for the poached egg app sounded promising, but didn't quite work. Pheasant was well cooked, but mains were accompanied by some standard-issue sides. Our other apps and mains were good but not as fabulous as the lovely dining room warranted. Service had glitches: busser whisked away one plate before we were both done, and we had to ask for flatware. Server was surprised we had come from nearby town; not a place where "locals" go, more for the condo owners. Disappointing to a big-city diner."
