About 275 Main at Pitcher Inn
"The Pitcher Inn is a jewel of sophisticated dining off a remote rural country road. The menu, which changes almost daily, is replete with brilliantly prepared dishes, from the Nantucket Bay scallops in a saffron broth with crimini mushrooms, pancetta and grilled bread ($17) to the braised Colorado lamb shank with orzo, tomatoes and French feta for $30. This may be Vermont’s best restaurant." New York Times

275 Main at Pitcher Inn Ratings and Reviews
We celebrated our 24th Anniversary Dinner at The Pitcher Inn. When we sat down at our beautiful window table overlooking the stream, we were presented with our Menus which the hostess had printed Happy 24th Anniversary on them. What a surprise and special touch.
The ambiance was lovely, the servers very attentive and the food was outstanding. We loved the restaurant and the inn and will definitely return.
My Husband and I are big fans of the Pitcher Inn. The Pitcher Inn is a Mad River Valley treasure! The food is always excellent and varies from season to season. The cocktails are thoughtfully created and the service is wonderfully warm. A sophisticated and friendly spot.
I was excited to eat at 275 Main because we had had dinner downstairs before and it was good. I was generally disappointed with the experience. While the staff was friendly, they weren't all that consistent with checking in. My cocktail was overly alcoholic and uninteresting for $14. Starters of asparagus salad and asparagus soup, wine suggestions were good. The $34 Lamb entree was really flavorless, with a sad side of some kind of rice or faro and our other entree of halibut was rather boring, with mild flavor. Its far far too expensive for level of service and the quality of the food. I would recommend Tracks downstairs for a burger and a beer over 275 Main upstairs.
We were in the area for a wedding and celebrated our anniversary (#38) with dinner at the Pitcher Inn. It is an historic inn and the main restaurant has a small but varied menu. The setting at 275 Main Street restaurant is lovely - dark woods, beautiful paintings, fireplace. (There is also a pub in the lower level, with outdoor seating overlooking the river.) Service is delightful: professional but extraordinarily friendly. You felt you were at a friend's house for a wonderful meal. We started with asparagus soup which was smooth & flavorful. I had the duck breast with olives (served as I asked - medium rather than rare) and my husband had the beef tenderloin. We both cleaned our plates, enjoying every bite. We split a chocolate mousse served with small chocolate chip cookies & chocolate sorbet - yumm! They have an extensive cocktail & wine list and the bartender was adept at mixing up any kind of mocktail.
Our dinner was not inexpensive but worth it, especially for a special event. I imagine the pub service & food is equally excellent.
We were traveling in the area and noticed this place on Open Table. It was about an hour drive for us but so worth it! The dining room at the inn is beautiful and the service was pitch perfect. Our dinner was excellent and the cocktails were outstanding. We only wish we were going to be in town longer.
Absolutely superb cuisine, from appetizer to salad to entrees to dessert! Subtle and creative use of ingredients without being over the top and showy. Each bite was memorable! Wine list is world class, and our table, right by the fireplace, was romantic and very conducive to conversation. Our server was very friendly, helpful, and attentive too!
We had the most wonderful experience at 275 Main while staying at The Pitcher Inn. Mason, the waiter was fabulous! He took time to offer recommendations, as well as wine to pair with our food. He was energetic and very attentive to food allergies. The atmosphere was beautiful and cozy, with a warm fireplace.
Food was excellent, but expensive.
My main course consisted of three or maybe four little pieces of pasta which, in my opinion, was smaller than most appetizers. Because we had appetizers and bread, I did not leave hungry.
If you haven't dined at the Pitcher Inn, you're missing out on a gem of a restaurant. Its a beautifully old and quaint building located in charming Warren Village. The decor is relaxing and inviting (think "Casual Elegance" but NOT stuffy or pretentious). White linen tablecloths, tapered candles, beautiful table settings overall. Stunning artwork scattered throughout. A huge old fireplace, complete with the perfect fire to keep us cozy. All in a very "Vermont-y" quiet atmosphere. Our waiter was awesome. This guy knows his stuff! He was extremely knowledgeable in the wine selection (they have hundreds of wines to choose from), and also seemed to know every ingredient in every dish that we asked about. His attention to detail was top-notch, as was the entire staff at the Pitcher Inn. The food is delicious - fresh, locally sourced, absolutely perfectly cooked, and served to us with a simple sophistication all its own. The Chef does a wonderful job of balancing the flavors of each dish, making sure the main ingredient is the shining star of the plate (I had the duck and it was so tender and flavorful - perfect). I would highly recommend this restaurant if you're looking for a nice quiet night out
Excellent choice while in Warren for an evening out with friends. I called ahead to have a bottle of chilled champagne at our table for a birthday celebration and not only did they have that, but the menu had a personal Happy Birthday welcome for our friend! Her dessert arrived with a candle!
Food was excellent. Our table had beef tenderloin and watercress salad with pecan crusted warm goat cheese. Chicken was in a lemon sauce and was perfectly done. Dessert was a chocolate something with delectable ice cream! We tried the pork belly appetizer....not fans! Service was definitely 5 star!
Loved it! The food and service were skillfully prepared and implemented! I can recommend the Pitcher Inn to all who are looking for an exquisite dining experience in an authentic, quaint, picturesque small Vermont town. It's a fantastic combination leading to a memorable experience.
The inn and dining room were lovely. Sitting next to the fireplace was awesome. We were actually the only guests, which was good and bad I suppose. The butternut squash soup was creamy and flavorful. My husband and I both had the vegetarian dumplings for dinner which were very good but not my favorite consistency. My husband loved them though. The Concord grape sorbet was perfect.
We enjoyed an absolutely delightful evening and dinner with friends at 275 Main. The food was exquisitely presented and delicious. The beet and goat cheese salad was exceptional complete with pomegranate seeds and a delicious dressing. The Halibut was also extremely good. We enjoyed the wine selection and loved the atmosphere and ambiance. This is a must for any visitors to the Valley looking for an great and special dining experience.
this is a tough review. on the one hand, we LOVED the atmosphere (in both the bar and the restaurant), the bread/apps/entrees and the attentiveness of the servers. on the other hand, the owner/manager was FAR too chatty (wandering from table to table and planting himself for extended periods), the waiter tried way too hard to be funny way too often and the brownie dessert was dry and tasteless. on net, we had a good experience, but this place could be a 5-star experience and it's barely 4 stars; the good news is all of the disappointments are controllable.
Quiet dining room striving for elegance but kind of bland. Service was just a tiny bit fussy. Soup was excellent. Entrees were mixed. Beef was very good. Pork was tough and not as interesting as it sounded. Dessert was fine. Sommelier was helpful. Overall disappointing.
We've been to Pitcher Inn twice. Our first experience was outstanding so much so that we decided to do the long drive (375 miles round trip) and have dinner there for our 15th anniversary. We were disappointed the second time, it was merely OK. Our second visit was during their slow time of year, early Sept which is post Labor day, pre leaf season so we are hoping that their regular chef was off that night. We'll give them one more try next year.
