    The day after Thanksgiving but the atmosphere was anything but crowded and noisy (well, a bit in the coffee shop, but not in the dining room(s). Excellent seat to soak up the atmosphere of the water cascading over the dam and the giant Christmas tree in the window across the river. Service friendly and professional. Food was delicious. Always a pleasure to be close enough to stop in for a meal.

    This is my favorite restaurant. It never disappoints. The food is delicious, especially the cheddar soup. The service is professional and friendly. The ambience is spectacular--the river, the style and the decor of the restaurant--filled with light, New Englandly and contemporary at the same time. I love it!

    Simon Pierce is in a beautiful location overlooking the water. We were able to watch the glass blowers downstairs while waiting for our reservation. Our friend, Brandon Stark, a chef at Simon Pierce delivered the best meal we have had in a long time. Everybody was great from the waitstaff to the hostess. I recommend Everybody stop by and treat yourself to heaven.

    Arrived for lunch and was immediately seated at a table with the best views of the river and falls. Entire staff was very friendly. Got to try the Seafood stew; best ever. The Pavlova dessert was light and delicious. Will be coming back much more often.

    Everything was delicious! I had the chicken on their main menu, and my husband had the delmonico steak from the dinner specials list. The pesto on his steak - omg, tasty! We were able to look around in the shop that night then went back the next morning to make a purchase. Wonderful experience.

    Although the hosts never smiled or made eye contact, the rest of our experience was excellent. Server was friendly, made good recommendations when asked, food was delicious, portions were good, cocktails were great as well. We had made a reservation as recommended and glad we did as it wasn't busy when we got there, It was when we left. Would definately return

    We thoroughly enjoyed the Simon Pierce experience, which included a fabulous meal at the restaurant! We definitely recommend the cheddar soup! Quiche of the day was rich and creamy and the orzo salad light with great flavor. Salmon was perfectly cooked and came with a perfect fall blend if vegetables with quinoa. Loved that our table overlooked the waterfall too!

    This was our 60th wedding anniversary and wanted to celebrate our dinner at just the perfect restaurant. We are from cape cod and journeyed to Woodstock for a few days. I just happened to be looking at various sites the day before the big event. I was blown away by the photo of the Simon Pearce. It was a wonderful night. We were seated right by the window to see the cascading falls lit by floodlight, both meals were delicious, service fantastic. The tables are spaced quite liberally.

    Simon Pearce is way overpriced and the food was not up to par. It took very long too receive our food and it was a big disappointment. The steak was over cooked and the sides were dry and burnt. I was supposed to have fingerling potatoes and brussel sprouts and there were only two over cooked, very small bite size potatoes and the rest was dry brussel sprouts. The food didn’t have much flavor. My husband’s dish was the same. We also requested to be seated near the beautiful waterfall on the reservations request line, for my birthday, and they sat us in the corner with no view. Please note, there was an open table when we arrived near the falls and we made the reservation three weeks in advance. We were next to the exit door and fire extinguisher. No ambiance there. Save your money and see the falls from the outside public deck and eat somewhere else. I don’t mind paying a high price for dinner but not when it’s below mediocre at best. The waitress was kind and efficient but that was about it. Big disappointment.

    Entrees came before appetizers. Told server we never got apps. Then sat with food getting cold for 5 mins until server came back and said apps would be open it in a couple of minutes. Asked to cancel apps and eat entrees.

    Wonder experience start to finish. We were seated on time with a beautiful view. The waiter was very pleasant and efficient. The homemade cheddar soup was fabulous as was the grilled chicken sandwich. The chocolate covered bread pudding put an exclamation mark on lunch. Certainly worth the two hour drive !!

    Our entrees, wine and service were excellent The only reason I did not give both food and value a 5 star is for the baked goods. The brown bread and mini rolls were dry and flavorless (day old?), as well as the Guinness cake being over-baked.
