This is our second time having dinner at NECI on Main. We have not been disappointed either time and will come back again every time we come up to Montpelier to visit our son at Norwich University. The overall quality of the food is very good, and we love the fact that we are supporting the students by dining there. The staff is friendly and efficient. This has to be the best restaurant in Montpelier for a fine meal.
Could not be happier with our choice of prime rib. It was perfectly cooked and the pumpkin panna cotta was the perfect ending highlight.
Steak was one of the best I've had. Fish and chips...incredible...going back to have it !!!
We had a very good dining experience at NECI. The food was well presented and tasty. It's been our experience that in this type of restaurant (culinary school) always does a great job. We would recommend.
Actually we were slightly disappointed here. We have been each summer as we visit this area for the last 5 years.
The service was very professional but delivery very slow.
The sweet pea soup was delicious.
Cheese plate was great.
The deviled eggs and salmon appetizer was very good altho not sure if that was supposed to be dill because it had no taste.
The risotto was barely warm and the veggies served with it were overcooked and mushy.
The fish and chips platter was very good with the exception of fries being too many.
The strawberry ice cream was icy and perhaps flavorless.
The coffee was strong and tasted old but the waitress did say she was brewing fresh decaf.
Awesome meal and we love supporting the students of NECI.
Mostly everthing was very good. I did think the demonico steak was overpriced. Hopefully you do change the menu often as it is rather limited.
Our group of six liked their meals to different degrees. Veggie burger had wonderful ingredients but was bland. Salmon and risotto meals were delicious. All portions were reasonably sized. Great VT beers on tap. The daily specials were pricy. The bartender/waitress in downstairs dining room was exceptional, however not a NECI student.
Everyone should eat here. Wonderful dinner and food was fab.
Took my father on vacation and made Montepelier a stop just to experience NECI on Main. Well worth the visit. Fine dining and great food.
