This restaurant is permanently closed. Permanently Closed - Brasserie L'Oustau brings a new American interpretation of classic French foods served at brasseries throughout Provence, an area of southern France famous for sun-kissed produce and seafood harvested fresh from the Mediterranean. Bar Matisse, a Victorian-era bar located within the restaurant, offers a small-plate menu of unique lighter fare.

Family-friendly with a relaxed and respectful ambiance, diners can enjoy lunch on weekdays, brunch Saturday and Sunday, and dinner every day we are open.

Available menus include Children's, Vegetarian and Gluten-free. We offer a Prix Fixe option as well as dinner Plats du Jour.

During warmer months, we offer dining service in our beautifully landscaped terrace. The bar-height fire pit, surrounded by a locally-quarried marble counter, provides a dynamic dining experience. Well-behaved dogs are welcome.

We ate here in October and it was a great experience. The meal began with the best baguette EVER and the appetizers, entrees, desserts, wine were exemplary. This is true French dining--you would swear you were in Aix or Avignon. Way easier parking though.

My husband, friend and I had the prix fixe dinner. I had salmon; they had flat iron steak. Mine was very good; their steak could best be described as "chewy." I twas prepeared to medium rare as they requested, but neither finished their steak. The appetizers and desserts were acceptable, but nothing to rave about.

You know you will have a good experience when the owner is very present, engaging with guests and monitoring every detail. The Brasserie offers a nice menu of plats du jour, daily specials, and prix fixe selections. From good bread to nice desserts, everything we had was very good. The space is attractive, the service pleasant and efficient, and the prices reasonable. We will definitely return.

We have been to the Brasserie several times. It is consistently good food with a prix free menu with good value. The owner is always gracious and says " thank you for coming" to the diners.
The service is efficient and for the most part professional. We are from New York and have a second home at Stratton and always try to eat at the Brasserie whenever we come to Vermont weekend. One of the better Manchester/Stratton restaurants.

Couldn't get a reservation when we called, but open table had multiple options... Food was excellent. Only quibble is that the seating is a bit tight. We felt a little awkward since it was impossible not to hear every word spoken at the tables to either side of us.

Expected a real French restaurant - booked it well in advance for Columbus weekend based on overall good recommendations. SnAils in a puff pastry spiced so much that you do not feel the real Taste . Scallops in overcooked risotto - nothing special. My Family took a burger - they said McDonalds has better ones. Maybe I am a spoiled European - but this had nothing to do with even the simplest basic French kitchen. Service on spot OK. Wanted to take 2 more people for dinner last minute and was not accepted although we ended up sitting 4 at a table that easily sits 8. No tablecloth - French would not allow that! Overall bad food and very much overpriced. Next day found in the Manchester city an e cellent oriental restaurant with tablecloths and gourmet food.

Friendly host and friendly knowledgeable waitstaff. It was a chilly day and we arrived at 1pm with our adorable 7lb dog. The host turned on the outdoor firepit and set up a table for us outside so we would not have to leave our dog in the car. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone that enjoys fresh and delicious food!

Food was delicious and the service was great - very attentive. The ambiance is nice, but loud. The tables are also very close together. I could hear the people sitting on either side of me talking better than my spouse across from me which was very distracting. I also felt bad for the staff who always had to duck down when they came to the table to avoid hitting their heads on the low hanging lamps. The portions are perfect and very flavorful. They have a nice cocktail menu and wine list and are heavy on the pour which is great. Reservations are highly recommended on weekends as this place is packed. There is a nice size bar as well if you just want to have cocktails.

There is a consistent quality of service and food that is wonderful to know whenever you plan dinner with them.

The setting was sweet, but the food not memorable. The location is quaint and the service was nice as expected. The wine list was lovely and the owner (?) acted as the sommelier. The food was good, but not very memorable. We had the prix fixe menu. They were out of the crème brulee and replaced with profiteroles that were questionably homemade.

Wine could have been pre- chilled- but otherwise a lovely experience in Manchester.

The unusually warm weather for VT enabled us to enjoy a delicious, well served dinner on the patio. My husband and I had the three course, price fixed meals that were reasonably priced and well prepared.

Food was ok not one of our best this trip. Our waitress had zero personality and was not attentive at all. Our food took a with 2 kids and she never came back to see if we needed anything or let us know why food was taking so long.

Consistent quality food and service. Owner is very attentive to detail and makes certain that higher standards are met. Excellent French wines are a plus. Friends are never disappointed.
