    As frequent diners at this attractive restaurant with great views of the mountains, we always enjoy the food, ambiance and service. This was no exception. Tonya and Steve took very good care of our party of four. The scallops, the pork hash, burger and omelette were all very tasty and excellently prepared. Bravo!

    One of the finest meals that I have had in some time. We had a party of 6 and shared appetizers then ordered our own meals. All the drinks, wine and food were fabulous. Finally our waiter was attentive, knowledgeable and fun. We’ll be back.

    Are you are willing to spend $170+ on brunch for 4 people? That included 2 coffees. 2 mimosas and 4 entrees plus tip. Food was great but price was over the top.

    It is a lovely place with wonderful Mountain View’s.. beautiful tables and wonderful seating. BUT we had eggs Benedict which were not traditional. Eggs were on shave beef rather than spinach, bacon or ham.. English muffin was hard to cut with a regular fork.. my sister had the omelet which was superb.. so if you go for brunch stay away from the eggs Benedict .. service was also superb

    Expensive and somewhat disappointing. A very attractive setting, with a great view of the mountains, a very friendly server (Amy), and it was very convenient because we were going to a concert right next door. But the whole experience was disappointing. The wine was not really chilled (indeed almost room temperature), we waited for what seemed forever for our arugula salads (which we were told were “coming right up” but arrived at least 15 minutes later), then got our main courses almost immediately. My wife hadn’t even finished her salad. The main courses were tasty, but $ 21 for a hamburger and fries is expensive, after an $ 18 salad, which quite frankly did not have much flavor, although the beets worked well and added a bit to it. In sum, we won’t be coming back. Also a bit annoying was their pre-concert menu which we were not expecting. Things on the regular menu did not seem to be available, and that’s what we were expecting from Open Table.

    We had seven people for brunch and sat outside on the terrace overlooking the valley. Definitely order the duck wings!! they were both meaty and tasty. The burgers, French toast and eggs Benedict were outstanding. The service was very attentive- can't go wrong with taking guests to the area for a special and unusual treat. Make sure to allow time to check out the art.

    Our waitress, Tonya, was outstanding, as was the drink she delivered...a Madras. Down hill from there! Menu choice was limited, not even the steak from last year. I had a hard time choosing. (We never were able to have dessert because we ran out of time before the performance so I can't report on that menu.) The arugula salad was ok but over dressed a bit and because of blueberry dressing, it was also unattractively blue. My scallops were good but I would have liked a bigger portion as a main course and this was an appetizer. portion of 3. I was still hungry and I'm a small eater. I have 5 more reservations for each night of MMF but I'm surely rethinking that!

    What a beautiful setting, eating outside on the porch of a 1920s house that is now the Southern Vermont Art Center. The oysters were other-worldly and the scallops, perfection. It was a idyllic lunch. Thank you.

    Disappointing Main courses & a rude server! We were very excited about dining at Curate. My friend & I sat outside with a magnificent view & ordered 2 salads Summer Tomato salad & Arugula salad that were both excellent….with very flavorful & unique dressings. I ordered the Confit Chicken with gnocchi & garlic parsley butter, & my friend had Seared rockfish. The server returned and asked how we were liking our main courses ….and we both replied that although they were flavorful - they both had excessive oil floating on them. In particular the gnocchi were drowning in orange oil that was lacking in flavor. The chicken “confit” was completely crunchy & bone-dry as if it had been deep fried to the point of having not one molecule of moisture. When we reported this….the server let us know in no uncertain terms that this was HOW the chef wanted it & that was how it was supposed to be served! So we left our 1/2 eaten meals & left quite disappointed in not only the (expensive) main courses $28 & $42 but the off putting and unfriendly service. It’s a shame that neither this server (nor the chef) were interested in their customer’s having a great dining experience.

    I would have given this five stars across the board except that a couple of the dishes were a bit too heavy on the salt. Otherwise, we were very happy. I will go back again and give it another try because everything else was very good.

    It was an absolutely perfect venue for reconnecting with old friends. We had the best table in the house.....centerstage on the deck. And the view!!! Will definitely return (hopefully soon). Our waiter was friendly, professional, and so accommodating. And the food!......All in all it could not have been a better experience.
