Jessica's at Swift House Inn is located in Middlebury, Vermont, just two blocks from downtown Middlebury. Set in an 1814 stately home, surrounded by beautiful lawns and gardens, Jessica's elegant atmosphere is the perfect place for a dinner for two, or a celebratory dinner for four to forty. Come experience Chef Rob Fenn's seasonal, Vermont-inspired menu for yourself!

Our Sommelier Sam Lipin can help you choose the right bottle of wine from our extensive cellar. Jessica's is the recipient of the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for our wine list, one of only a small handful of restaurants in Vermont and fewer than 1400 restaurants world-wide which have won at this level.

Outdoor seating is weather dependent. Call to inquire.

Please note that when making a reservation online, we plan on seating your party in the dining room at that time. If you'd like to relax with a pre-dinner beverage in the bar or parlor, we invite you to arrive well before your reservation time.

    Another great evening/meal. The gnocchi is something special. I started with the chicken and duck liver pate and finished with the gnocchi. Both were great, but the gnocchi…wow. I would’ve ordered it twice had I not ordered the pate. Staff is super friendly. Hospitality is top notch.

    We had an outstanding dinner and dessert. Everything was cooked perfectly and the service was great. Excellent wine list and very good cocktails in a beautiful dining room. Perfect place for a romantic dinner for two in Middlebury.

    A superb 40th wedding anniversary dinner made possible by a refined locale, a superb waiter (Jay), an equally superb sommelier (Sam), and superb food by a chef and team we did not get to thank by name. We'll be back.

    The entire evening was great. Staff was attentive, food was delicious, we tried a champagne made from chenin blanc grapes which was very good and a good value.

    Excellent food, quickly brought to table. Friendly service, good explanations of menu items, a little heavy on recommending an item. No pressure to hurry from the restaurant. Room and noise levels very good. Staff were quietly in the background. Again, excellent food, graciously presented.

    My first time dining here - I enjoyed the food. I ordered the ‘duck two ways’. I prefer my duck aged at least 3 weeks and the leg confit, but I have NO complaints. The breast was phenomenal - best I’ve ever had. Although the breast is described as seared, I thought it had more of a char, still delicious. The entree was fairly priced for what they offer. Loved the wines I ordered. The staff, very accommodating and polite. I skipped dessert (which are all made in house!), but I will return…maybe tonight. Thanks for a wonderful meal and evening.

    We stayed at the Swift House Inn, so Jessica's was convenient for our anniversary dinner. Food was excellent, especially the fish dished. Service, top notch. Highly recommend for a special event.
