Guild Tavern Ratings and Reviews
We were given this recommendation from a friend as somewhere close to airport while doing a multi person run. The food was delicious!! I ordered the Gnocchi and had them add a 5 oz steak to the order and it was an amazing meal. I have already recommended to another out of town we friend who will be traveling there and we will be back.
Always, always great! Roasted veg were awesome and greens were garlicky perfection! Even a lovely unoaked Chardonnay on the list, a nice change of pace from Sauvignon Blanc. The back room could use a touch more decor love, but that is hardly a reason not to go! Thanks!
A nice casual dining spot. Highlights were the spinach artichoke dip and flourless chocolate torte. The ricotta gnocchi was tasty but the portion size was very small. The Laplatt farm beef burger was good, but VERY under done (rare) and the grilled onions were raw. This may be due to the Sunday burger special ($4 off all burgers), so they were the item of the night. Lots of burgers flying off the grill, so asking how you wanted it done was probably just a pipe dream.
Overall, it was a decent casual place for a low key 'back to school' dinner.
Oh, and one more note. Their 'by the glass' chardonnay offering is unoaked. Who does that? You already have a pinot grigo, sauvignon blanc, chenin blanc and your house grenache blanc. Put some oaky butter on your menu already!
Overall it was a good experience. There was some holes in the service that is more attention to detail then the basics. For example water glasses stayed empty for quite a period and never asked if another soft drink was needed. Im sure they are not refills but all the same never asked if I would like another. They dont let alcohol stay empty but that has more attention cause it helps add to the bill. Also just received salads when the appetizer ordered arrived with it. This is not what I expect for food spacing from a restaurant of this class. I can honestly say that the flavor of the steak I could do myself or get at other restaurants for a lower cost then what we paid here. The steak was good I just wasn't blown away with it for the cost. I would go again but more for those special occasions which you do provide a great atmosphere for.
I love the Guild the first time I was the a few years ago, It was one of the best meals I had dining out it a very long time. However I feel the quality seems to have gone down. I had the NY Strip... The cook was good, but the favor wasn’t there and felt disappointed and let down... Paying over 100.00 per person I feel that value is not there- I am happy to pay for a great meal with great service... Sadly, this not what we received...I will have to think hard about returning- Sadly, we can only rave about the first we dine at the Guild We have dine there half dozen time the past few years and frankly, it has never measured up to our first experience.
Often go for special occasions, especially when our grown children are visiting as they love this restaurant. We have eaten here several times to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries and have never been disappointed. The drinks are definitely amazing. Steaks are great. Just a bit expensive for VT.
It all starts with excellent bread and butter. Crunchy
crust and chewy center plus delicious butter. Why is that so hard for some restaurants? We all ordered basically shrimp or steak plus fries. All was tasty and hot and perfectly prepared. They even serve housemade ketchup, which was tomato-y and an extra treat.
One of our favorite places in a generally foodie-friendly city. This Friday evening, despite a request in OpenTable, we were not offered a booth, even though there were booths available. Noise level was, as usual here on a busy night, pretty high. Service of entrees was very slow, our server apologized and comped us an appetizer; she said they had a very large private party and the kitchen was backed up. Fortunately we weren't in a hurry this evening, and had just enjoyed a dozen oysters (always great here), so were okay with the delay. Steak and shrimp entrees were excellent.
Everything the Farmhouse Group touches is brilliant. The Guild has a great blend of industrial meets Swedish inspired decor, with cozy ambiance and simple tones. Warm, friendly, welcoming, and the menu presents comfort food with the right amount of gourmet flare to make it sophisticated.
Visited with the family while my daughter was home from college. The steak I ordered was over cooked and the waitress never came back to ask how our meal was. I tried getting her attention but she was quite busy. Poutine was very good. We visit the Guild quite often and usually have a decent meal, so I’m hoping this was just a bad night because it is quite expensive.
