Red Slate at the Upper Pass Lodge Ratings and Reviews
We were very pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food at the Red Slate. The cheese plate was very tasty and the salad was extremely fresh with many interesting locally sourced vegetables and a great home made dressing. Our main courses- fish and chips and smoked salmon pastrami over Caesar salad- were both delicious. Martinis and wine were excellent also. The service and value were both outstanding. I would love to return to this restaurant- wish it wasn't so far from home!
Service was very friendly and efficient. Burgers were quite tasty but the fries left a lot to be desired; seemed to have been only partially cooked at too low a temperature. Advised server who said that there were problems with the fryer. The bar area is adjacent and, although it wasn't very busy, the bar noise just tumbles into the dining room. Probably not my new favorite place in Londonderry.
We enjoyed the salmon (not dried out perfectly cooked on a bed of quinoa. The steak was prime and cooked rare as requested with a nice pan sauce. OUr 3 year-old devoured the poutine, and thought her gnocchi were excellent, the sauce was simple and delicious. Great Vermont drinks and a quiet atmosphere. The small bar scene was fun and comfortable.
We were pleasantly surprised when we dined here while staying at the lodge. The food was fresh, using local foods, wine and beer. There were menu choices: fish, chicken, beef for everyones liking. They were all prepared with care and wonderful taste. The chef did a great job. Would definitely eat here again.
The waiter--who was very new, to be fair--didn't know what the bar had on tap (took him two tries to figure it out) and didn't know what the specials were (also took two tries). But he did keep our water glasses refilled.
The decor, which really was fine, included unusual touches: metal interior panels similar to the shutters that would be pulled down over a closed storefront, as well as what appeared to be a large antique meat grinder...led to a running joke at our table that at a certain hour shutters would close over the windows and doors and guests would be fed to the meat grinder. Overall, we had a good time and the food was OK, although the website verbiage about a menu based on fresh local ingredients was presumably aspirational.
