This was our second time here. Both times the food was excellent and the wait staff was excellent. I had the Duck Confit and my wife had the seafood special. We would order both meals again.

Six of us ate dinner here and it was very disappointing. The service was extremely slow. Our first course came on time but then we waited a long time for our main meal. Three ordered linguine and clams. They received fettuccine and clams which was cold and inedible. Two ordered steak frites and it too was cold. My grandsons were so hungry by the time their meals arrived that they ate them anyway. We are from out of time and it was Christmas vacation week so maybe they just couldn’t handle the crowd. The cheese plate was nice and the baby spinach salad was fine . The spicy tomato soup was good but the food should come to the table hot and in a reasonable time. Fettuccine is not linguine

If you want a cozy Vermont style restaurant with great good, service and ambiance, this place has it all. Everything the waitress recommended was fabulous! We brought my 12 year old and 16 old and there were able to find something to eat and loved their dishes. Would definitely go back if I am ever in Stowe.

more every day dining for us. We didn't find the setting to be the Special Occasion or romantic birthday meal place we were hoping for. Holly was a fantastic waitress and food was good. Saturday night and it was empty when we got there and a few other parties when we left so you didnt get that cozy crowded feel. Super stinky fish smell when we walked in, too. a mediocre experience.

This was our first time dining with Ten Acres and we had an over the top experience. Our reservation was late in the evening and we did not feel rushed at all. We came in 15 minutes late for a 915 reservation when the establishment closed at 10. We were invited to even stay and enjoy our wine by the fire while they closed up. We were given a gift certificate for the spa at our resort from our waitress! She was absolutely amazing and we will return on our next trip to Stowe.

 (Naples)·Dined on December 1, 2017

This was our second visit to Ten Acres, overall it was good but not as good as the first. My main concern is the somewhat limited "pre-winter" menu. My wife had the spaghetti squash and I had the duck, with a cheese plate as an appetizer. The food and service were very good.
There are so many restaurant options in Stowe, we will try others before trying Ten Acres again

The fireplace did not draft well and smoke filled the room. I now need to get my down coat cleaned from the smoke smell. The smoke filled the room and they had to open the windows to clear it out. Not their best night

We always make it a point to dine here when we go to Stowe. Their margaritas alone are worth the trip! Best in America! The food is wonderful, ambiance terrific. The only thing I cannot understand is why Linda does not get a cappuccino machine! It would be the perfect dinner ender! Other than that the place is perfect!!

 (Washington DC)·Dined on October 27, 2017

We met friends for a casual Friday night dinner and our only complaint was that the steak was very overcooked and completely tasteless. It came with a mound of thin frites but they were also way overcooked and not enjoyable at all. Others in our party had the lobster which they very much enjoyed. Wine suggestion was good and desserts were excellent. Would try again but not the steak or any kind of meat that requires careful temperature control.

We happened upon the Bistro in ou travels in the Stowe area and decided to take a chance on it. What a lovely quaint place it is. It had a lovely bar with extra seating in comfy chairs and couches. We actually went directly to our table but the waiter did not rush us to order dinner. Our dinners were fantastic, starting with Linda’s homemade bread. Delicious! We would definitely give The Bistro thumbs up so if you haven’t tried it and are in the area, give it a try. I recommend making a reservation because it is a very popular place.

We were a party of six and all were pleased with their meals. Everything was delicious and well prepared and presented. Our waiter was excellent. He was very cheerful and attentive without being overbearing. One in our party has a food allergy and the chef was very accommodating.
All in all it was a great experience. We would definitely recommend Ten Acres Bistro.

We had a great evening at Ten Acres. The food and drinks were delicious. My husband and I both had the lobster and it lived up to its reviews. A bit on the expensive side but definitely worth it for a nice evening out! It is the one fine dining restaurant we return to when we are in Stowe.

Food was unremarkable. Since the restaurant was broken up into several rooms, the noise level in any one room was tolerable. Service was slow due to the waitress' (owner's wife?) habit of having long conversations with some of the customers whom she seemed to know. We had a much better meal at the Whip Bar and Grill in the Green Mountain Inn.

We went for our wedding anniversary and the food was good, although my drink, the pomegranate martini, tasted like cough syrup. My biggest issue was the flies buzzing all over the place. At one point I asked the young man bringing us water for a fly swatter. He said there were some up at the house- but that didn't help us! It really put a damper on the evening having to wave our arms over our food every few minutes. At one point we weren't paying attention and 2 flies landed on the blue cheese on the cheese plate - needless to say - we did not finish that.
We didn't get dessert - my arms were tired!
I didn't want to make a fuss and upset my husband, but I wish we had gone somewhere else.

Visited here on vacation. We’re looking for a nice romantic dinner. Although our waiter was nice and the food okay, the ambiance had much to be desired. Our table was sticky, everyone was dressed in jeans, and it was very dark in the area in which we were seated. Not at all what we had anticipated based upon other reviews.

We attended for date and conversation, the crowd and noise level were more than we preferred, however, given the time (Fri eve'g), season (fall foliage), and location (Stowe), not much could be done about either, without spending an exorbitant amount elsewhere. My personal opinion was it was an overall pleasant experience (crowd & noise not withstanding) but others in our party (of 3), ... not so much.
