 (New England)·Dined on May 3, 2015

The menu has changed dramatically with fewer choices. This used to be one of our favorite restaurants for special Vermont family dinners. The beet appetizer was extremely small - at first I thought it was just a free add-on with the bread! Halibut was good but plain. Thought it was overpriced for the quantity of food and we are from the metro NYC area. Our server was very nice - great personality - brought a nice personal touch to the evening.

Enjoyed our dinner here very much. Have been wanting to try it. Did not disappoint. Appetizers were excellent and the fillet and scallops were perfectly prepared. Attentive, friendly but not intrusive service and a lovey bright room. Nice to have another go-to option in the Woodstock area!

Dinner Menu is limited in choices.
My wife had a chicken, pasta, and sauce dish. Sent it back to kitchen. Very un-delectable.
I had a tenderloin steak - asked for medium cooking, got rare.
I ate while my wife's steak replacement dish was prepared and then served. By the time it arrived I was finished - she ate virtually alone.
Not a very impressive dining experience.
We are a couple times a year guests at the W/Inn, and usually eat our meals in the Inn. We
have past Red Rooster dining experience's, which were so much better than this one. Decided to eat dinner in the Pub second night.

Lovely meal at the Red Rooster during our stay at the Woodstock Inn. Thoroughly professional service and a delicious meal. Catch of the day was rainbow trout served on a bed of greens with chunks of maple-smoked bacon and a parsnip and carrot honey puree. Pheasant was served with sweet potato and was equally delicious. Topped it off with a maple (naturally!) glazed custard desert and a glass of sherry, which we took too sit by the fire. We were right by the window on a very cold New England evening and yet felt perfectly comfortable. A very special place....

Stayed at Woodstock Inn (fantastic), and decided to eat at red rooster both nights we stayed. Servers both nights were very nice, bread was great, appetizers (calamari and eggplant/shrimp/mozzarella cheese special) were fantastic, and the scallop dinner was out of this world. It was definitely a small and intimate setting and reservations are a must, great experience, would not just recommended, I would go back in a heartbeat.

We took a break from a week of skiing at Okemo to tour around Woodstock and Quechee. We were disappointed at first that we couldn't get into the Simon Pearce restaurant, but very happy that we made a stop at the Woodstock Inn. Our lunch at Red Rooster was the best meal we had all week. The decor and design was simple, but beautiful, the food was very good and the service was amazing. They menu had a great range of farm to table items, as well as a great children's menu. The meal made us wish we had booked a room at the beautiful hotel. It would be worth the drive to Okemo for such great food and service in a beautiful setting. We hope to be back soon!

We had an absolutely delicious dinner at the Red Rooster which is inside of the Woodstock Inn. The inn was beautifully decorated for Christmas,complete with a life-size gingerbread house in the lobby and a roaring fire. The restaurant was also festively decorated and, most importantly, the food was superb!

Most notable, staff and service are wonderful and the lighting makes for a nice ambiance. White tablecloths would have enhanced the overall feeling of a sophisticated dining experience. My husband raved about his short rib and the sticky toffee pudding (with 2 spoons) was deliciously indulgent! Disappointing wine selection and on two occasions whilst dining at the Inn, I was served wine from a nearly empty bottle which spoilt it.

Amazing. I have never had a bad dinner or a bad experience here. A friendly staff that knows how to do their job! Food is always amazing and desserts are wonderful too! A must NOT MISS while visiting Woodstock. Not really a place for small children unless they are very, very well behaved. Reservations are almost always needed.

Halibut was slightly over cooked. Beef tenderloin was flavorful but also over cooked--asked for medium (pink center) and there was not a sign of pink. For dessert. Carrot cake was dry. Salads as starters--beet salad and arugula salad--both very good. Service was very good, very friendly.

From the bread to the appetizer to the entree there was an exquisite attention to detail. Gnocchi with locally foraged mushrooms are sensational. Went for dinner both nights of my stay in Woodstock. This is a warm and inviting restaurant in a warm and inviting Inn in a warm and inviting town! Can't say enough about the experience!

My husband and I stayed at the Woodstock Inn this past weekend and dined in the restaurant on the night of our arrival. We were very disappointed by the quality of food that we were served. Everything came out at lightening speed (which is never a good sign) and seemed like it was reheated not cooked fresh. My husband had a steak that was seared off before service began and then reheated when our order went in. It came to us a grayish color and very well done (mind you our waitress had recommended a medium rare temp). It wasn't very busy that night so we were uncertain of why everything was being rushed. We will not be dining here again when in the Woodstock area.

My seared scallops were outstanding. Due to a medical issue I could not eat one of the ingredients in the "potato hash" that was listed on the menu with the scallops. Our server, Terri, immediately offered to substitute fingerling potatoes which I agreed to and they were delicious. The chocolate cake desert was awesome too.Terri was the perfect server...friendly and accommodating, right there when needed but not hovering.

The food and atmosphere were outstanding. The only criticism is we felt a bit rushed. We ordered lunch and within five minutes it was on our table. We finally asked our server if we could have a little more time and she was quite nice in accomodating us but it was unpleasant that we had to ask. Such a nice place should be enjoyed by the diners with time allowed to relax and digest.

The food was good but the room lacked the ambience of what it had been. No table linens, table top made of plastic, room lacked any charm. Service was poor: waiter had no personality, was slow and unresponsive. For what should be one of the better restaurants in the area, this was a disappointment. It was more expensive than the best restaurant in the area, Simon Pierce in Quichee.

I would not recommend the Red Rooster to anyone and will not eat here again

My husband and I went to the Red Rooster to celebrate our anniversary, based on recommendations from family and friends about the restaurant. However, we were very disappointed with our experience. The quality and execution of our food was inconsistent and the service was incredibly slow. Our server admitted that they had the "Monday night team" in the kitchen, which doesn't make a paying customer feel great (especially when this customer drove an hour and paid ~$150 for the meal). It was disappointing that we were celebrating a special day and yet had a luckluster experience.

Maybe it was a busy night for them but I did not have as good of a dining experience as my prior visit. Food was good but not great. Service was slow. I love the fact that they have their own garden from which they get a lot of their vegitables but after hearing the servers repeat that speal to every surrounding table it gets a bit old. My experience the week prior was wonderful and I will likely go back but will lower my expectations.
