    Beautiful setting! We had a table with great views of the waterfalls. Food was really good. My husband and daughter both got the Sheppard’s pie, and I had the salmon. Both were excellent! We were really excited to lunch there. Our server sadly did dim the experience. She was inattentive, lacked friendliness, and we waited quite a long time for our food, where I had to ask her about it. I would 💯 go back as it’s such a beautiful place, just hope I don’t get the same server.

    Very good. Menu lacked more simple choices.. not everyone is eating duck, lamb or crispy chicken… Would have like a roasted chicken option. No pasta on the menu but gnocchi and it was extremely dry. Love the atmosphere though… If going with littles options of food are tough if your kid is picky. Service was excellent and friendly!!! Cocktails were great!

    The view of the falls and the Simon Pearce produced table settings are such a visual delight that the food seems like a bonus. And what a bonus! The Provençal fish stew was astonishingly delicious. The gnocchi were excellent, and the Shepard’s pie was good enough. Decadent chocolate cake and coffee. Well worth the long drive we have to be there.

    Beautiful restaurant and the shop is spectacular. We ordered the special scallop dish. Presentation was appealing but the scallops were small and slightly fishy. The duck entree consisted of deep fried duck smothered in an Asian sauce over fried rice and beans. We did not care for either. The beet salad was basic. I could make this with my eyes closed. One and done for us… Good luck!

    We haven't been to Simon Pierce in years pre-pandemic and then flooding have kept us away from one of our favorite restaurants. We were very happy to return for dinner and it was very good. Server was friendly and attentive without being overbearing. The food, Osso Buco , Roast Cod and Duck were all delicious and quantity was just right. We shared the crab cakes and salads and soup were all very good. Dessert was underwhelming though. Not really an exciting assortment to choose from and not up to par with the meal. All in all great to see that one of the Upper Valley's premier restaurants is back in the game!

    I have been to Simon Pearce before, but years ago, and it was lovely. Returning now, I was extremely disappointed! Our server was very inattentive. At least two tables seated at the same time as we were seated left easily a half hour to hour before us, while we were still waiting for food. They had food delivered before we were even asked to order. When we did finally receive our food, it was so unappetizing that I could only pick at it and took the rest home out of kindness for my guest so that I did not embarrass her. I ordered a side of Grilled Shrimp. It came out slightly cold and completely unseasoned. I ate one and sent the rest back to actually be grilled. They came back lightly grilled, but still with no season. I could have done this myself at home, not something I would expect from a fine dining experience. My second dish was a gnocci with yams or sweet potatoes and sage. The gnocci did not taste fresh in the very least. It tasted like it had been made weeks ago and then was re-cooked. It was dry, hard, and saturated with oil. Honestly, if this was my restaurant, I would have been horribly embarrassed to serve that dish! It completely turned me off the entire meal. For dessert - the chocolate cake was okay. It was moist and nice with the ice cream. We also had the key lime tart - again, very sad! The pairing of the tart lime with everything else on the plate did not make sense and the flavors fought. The lime custard (for lack of a better word), was runny mush. The tart itself was okay. Our server was pleasant, but seemed overwhelmed with other customers and did not check in enough to know when we were ready for our next course, so we sat and sat until I finally was uncomfortable with waiting anymore and flagged her down. All in all - it was such a sad experience that I would not go back there again. Everything about the place including the menu felt outdated - great for grandma! The only redeeming grace for this restaurant is the view.

    The gnocchi was incredibly dry it was inedible. Out of a group of 8 adults and 2 children, nobody really loved their meal. What was the most upsetting part was the hostess and wait staff were incredibly rude to us. If you do not want children in your restaurant, don't have a kids menu. Babies are essential to society, treat them and their parents as regular human beings please. I don't suggest going to Simon Pearce restaurant with babies or children, the staff will berate you the whole time and make your costly meal miserable.

    They dropped my wife’s birthday cake. Which I can understand.. mistakes can happen. But they didn’t give us anything to make up for it. (we owned a restaurant for 27 years and when we had problems, we made sure the customers happy when they left.)

    Wow, wow—From checking at the front desk to leaving our table, the experience with Simon Pearce once again did not disappoint. The appetizer of smoked trout and fresh greens was absolutely splendid, steak was perfectly prepared medium rare with sautéed leeks— perfection. Locally churned vanilla ice cream with home made dark chocolate sauce with decaf cappuccino-the perfect ending. Thank you Simon Pearce for always doing the little things so well. Our table service was seamlessly perfect-How lucky we are to have this extraordinary restaurant in the Upper Valley..

    We were planning to go to Simon Pearce to purchase a gift for a friend and decided to have lunch at the restaurant. We're so glad we did ... what a treat! We had the crab cakes appetizer ... probably the best crab cakes we ever had! My husband had the delicious Crispy Sesame Chicken, and I had Shepherd's Pie, which was generous enough to take some home to enjoy for another lunch. We definitely recommend the Simon Pearce Restaurant and making a reservation. We observed that the restaurant was quite busy for a Friday lunch.
