The dinner was very good, along with the service. We were here about two years ago and both of us thought the dinner menu was a little limited. This time we were very happy to see a new menu with a little more selection.

We had a wonderful dining experience. All our dinners were delicious. We had schnitzel which was great and the lamb was cooked perfectly and came right off the bone. Dessert (Linzer Torte) was delicious too. Christian, our waiter, was great and very attentive. Will definitely return.

Requested a nice secluded table to celebrate our 10th anniversary, and were seated with all the other diners. Restaurant was only 1/4 full and still they managed to place us in the same area as all the others. Dinner was fine but the server was unpleasant and we felt neglected. Others came and went as we waited for our server to ask us if we needed anything. Food was good but overpriced and I don’t believe we’ll be back.

Booked for our anniversary. As we entered restaurant matire ‘ d acknowledged. Seated in middle of restaurant despite cozier window seat open. Waiter somewhat loud and gave us a sense of ‘hurry up.” Only soup offered cold vichyoisse with trout roe (despite it snowing, blowing and 20 degrees). Limited menu offering. Salmon almost too peppery, spicy to finish. Served broccoli. No starch. Weiner schnitzel not veal, but pork, despite Austrian restaurant. Spaetzle horrible. Cold cucumber salad in the winter Unspecial chocolate/coconut mousse with whipped cream. Excellent salted caramel ice cream. Very expensive. Not worth the money

I was disappointed with my dining experience. My husband and I shared a salad before our entrees. Thankfully our waiter told us that we could either have the kitchen split our salad for an additional $5 charge or we could do it ourselves at the table. I felt this was a bit petty considering the prices. We chose the latter. When the salad arrived it was good but definitely on the small side. (While in Stowe we ate at two other upscale restaurants and split a salad at each with no additional charge and each of us had a good amount.) Our duck entrees were just ok and the accompanying vegetables nothing special. Of the three upscale restaurants we ate in, Von Trapp was the most expensive and the least satisfying.

We found the food to be very average with not a lot of flavor. The quantities were also less than we expected for the price. If the quality had been higher and more creative, the quantity would have been more reasonable. We lived in Austria for a year and were looking forward to some great Austrian food, but it didn't quite live up to expectations

As guest of the lodge, this was a nice spot for an early dinner after a long drive up to Stowe. Service was good and the food was flavorful, unfortunately it was not delivered hot. There are better dinner choices in Stowe for the price.

Vastly overrated. Uninteresting menu with limited choices. Had to track down maître d to get a server to come over after waiting at our table for 15 minutes. Feels like a conference center dining room versus a Swiss chalet. And it was pricey

We went to this restaurant for dinner mainly because it was the only place we could get a reservation for a party of 6. When we first walked in we were impressed with the place, we were seated immediately. Service was pretty good, but the food was another story. The table next to us returned the lamb osso bucco and one of the members at our party ordered the same. It wasn’t good at all , wondering if they served us the same dish he returned because he barely touched it. They at least were nice enough to take it off of the bill. The rest of the meals were good.

the lodge is lovely and the location is very special, but we visited on a popular night (christmas eve), noise at first table was deafening and they were nice enough to switch us. However, although we tipped nicely given that it was Christmas, the service was disorganized we waited a very long time for bread (after asking four times) the food was average quality only and not heated properly. I would go back for a drink or dessert in the pub.

We have been guests of the Lodge several times. Until this stay the dining experience and food has been very good. The menu for Christmas was not at all festive...the first entree was a hamburger! Two of us ordered wiener schnitzel...it was cold, overcooked and tasteless! The steak that was ordered medium was served rare. The waiter returned it to the kitchen, but by the time it was returned the rest of the group had finished eating.

Extremely expensive with limited traditional/ non-traditional choices for holiday buffet. Ambience was not that of a pricier restaurant, more of a chain restaurant. Our server was nice, however not worth a 20% gratuity that amounted to over $40 die to the price of the buffet which is not affordable by any means for the average family.
