We went to Simon Pearce on a friend’s recommendation. This was a mother daughters get away weekend and we wanted a special dinner but not anything ‘stuffy.’Food and atmosphere surpassed our expectations. We all enjoyed our meal and the service was excellent. Attic Char was perfectly prepared and mustard sauce with raisins was just heaven.

Lacked personal service and knowledge of plates. Server did not elaborate on specials or explain the add on lobster option. We felt “on our own”. Water never filled, not what we expected.

Coming for 7 years and still exciting culinary occasion. The pork belly was over the top; excellent. Roast Duck was delicious. You never let us down. Eric

The best restaurant to celebrate and share a wonderful meal.
The dining area was a bit loud. Maybe adding thicker curtains to the windows to help dampen the sound would help.

Beautiful restaurant and location. Stunning view. Gorgeous food presentation. Our meals were exquisite, unique, fresh and cooked to perfection. Served hot without much of a wait, but not rushed either. Excellent customer service. Cannot wait to go back for another special occasion.

Chaotic parking lot, odd looking and confusing space, professional service, skip the appetizers and do not expect a candle even if staff is aware that the reason pf being there was a birthday celebration.

The venue is amazing. The glass shop, the glass works, and the restaurant overlooking the waterfall made for a great birthday celebration night. The service (Stephanie) was perfect - always attentive and interactive. The staff acknowledged my wife's birthday as they sat us and provided us a candled sorbet at no charge. Our appetizers were terrific - the cheddar cheese is a very tasty representation of Vermont goodness. The cod dish was perfect in presentation and taste. You should definitely visit this lovely restaurant! Our 4 was given for the very dry halibut. It would have been nice to have a small and larger glass of wine option as a bonus - not as a score detractor. And, the noise is a little loud - maybe soften up the space?
Make a reservation and if available - sit by the window!

Beautiful setting, great welcome at hostess stand but lukewarm service at best from primary server. While other tables around us were getting full on explanations of the entire menu or any other inquiries...we were frowned on at best and barely accommodated. Very sad service which we reflected in a small 10% tip....hope it made an impression, but doubtful. Sad as this was our last night out on vacation...hope to visit again if in the area, but not certain.

We wanted one ‘special’ dinner during this weeks holiday in the Vermont area and by a number of ‘trusted’ recommendations chose here - and it was everything we had hoped for - and with the on-site glass manufacturing workshop and its retail area it offered even more.

Unfortunately the fish entries,cod and halibut, were both bland. It was disappointing. We have been here before and had excellent meals. Will try again, hoping for a better outcome.

Our party of 10 gets together once a year to participate in Backroads cycling trips all over the country. This year’s venue was the lovely fall colors in Vermont. Our fantastic dinner at Simon Pearce was preceded by a stunning view of the waterfall at sunset, with a hot air balloon flying over.
Our server Amelia made sure we were well taken care of, and the staff and manager went the extra mile to make sure we had a great experience. Well done!!

First time here and food was wonderful. Beautiful setting although we weren’t able to get next to a window. Unfortunately, the people at the table behind us were quite loud and seemed to think everyone would enjoy listening to them as they called out to the people seated across from us, so it did tarnish our enjoyment somewhat.

We visited Simone Pearce on a friends recommendation. We knew it would be a great place for dinner since it was hard to get a reservation. What a breath taking view of the water fall. The glass showroom was beautiful and created a festive atmosphere. Our server was warm and friendly. Service was excellent. Food was outstanding. Its a high scale restaurant with higher prices but very well worth the money. Not to be missed. Have recommended it to a friend that plans to visit Vermont soon.
