About the restaurant
Jessica's at Swift House Inn is located in Middlebury, Vermont, just two blocks from downtown Middlebury. Set in an 1814 stately home, surrounded by beautiful lawns and gardens, Jessica's elegant atmosphere is the perfect place for a dinner for two, or a celebratory dinner for four to forty. Come experience Chef Rob Fenn's seasonal, Vermont-inspired menu for yourself!

Our Sommelier Sam Lipin can help you choose the right bottle of wine from our extensive cellar. Jessica's is the recipient of the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for our wine list, one of only a small handful of restaurants in Vermont and fewer than 1400 restaurants world-wide which have won at this level.

Outdoor seating is weather dependent. Call to inquire.

Please note that when making a reservation online, we plan on seating your party in the dining room at that time. If you'd like to relax with a pre-dinner beverage in the bar or parlor, we invite you to arrive well before your reservation time.
