For being in a pandemic, Simon Pearce gets it right! They spaced the tables apart, made sure everyone was masked and had a clear policy. Given that this is the 2nd time I have eaten in a restaurant since March of 2020, I felt super safe and really happy with the service at Simon Pearce! Thank you for such a great experience!!

Service was great as usual. Tables are distanced. Menu with some changes but food is good, came out quickly. Some was a little overcooked, wonder if they prepare in advance and not as flavorful as usual. But in general great experience as usual

The food was amazing as usual. We didn't take much time to look at the menu. We ordered what we usually do because we're never let down. I ordered the horseradish crusted cod and my husband ordered the braised short rib of beef. It is our Engagement Anniversary celebration to ourselves. 7 years and counting. We come for our wedding anniversary in July too.

Incredible atmosphere and food! Host was incredibly kind, but our waitress did not go out of her way to be bubbly or overly gracious. I was told that having the first reservation of the day at 11:30 meant we would get to pick a table next to our other table of 4 guests we were with, this was not the case. It was first come, first choice of table. They will not guarantee tables of more than 4 can sit together. The Prosecco and quiche was fabulous, as well as the salmon and sesame chicken. Large portion sizes, everything was perfectly done. Chocolate mousse was amazing!! The view of the frozen waterfall was incredible, although obscured from our table, so arrive early for first choice of table. Walking through the glass showroom was beautiful, but they had the glass blowing observation area closed to guests due to Covid, that was a bummer. Overall it was lovely, We would definitely go back for this unique experience!

This was an early Valentine lunch for us. As always, the “service” was impeccable. The Quiche and chicken sandwich were good, but a little dry.
We love the ambiance of Simon Pearce. I always look forward to returning, even when things are not quite perfect.

We are regulars at this restaurant - every 3-4 weeks mainly for lunch over the past 20 years. The food is always incredible and usually the service is excellent. We need to report that during our last lunch this Wednesday our waitress was not providing the usual high quality of service. We did register our issues with the hostess so hopefully all will be well in the future.

We had a lovely meal (4 of us) on Saturday night. I had the beef short rib, my husband had the salmon and my daughter had the crispy duck. All of our meals were outstanding as were the apps. My grand daughter's kids meal was also excellent - the fresh fruit cup was perfect.

The only complaint I have is how can such a fantastic restaurant have such a limited choice of wine offerings at least on the main menu. We had the Pinot Noir that is the Simon Pearce reserve I believe and it was not properly chilled and basically had no flavor - looked like water even. It doesn't warrant $52.00 but what can one do once it is opened?

Please get some decent wines on the menu. Next time - we'll skip the wine if the choices haven't changed.

One of my favorite restaurants in VT. The food is always great, if you go for lunch get the quiche! Great view of the Gorge from the dining room and always love a little shopping after for the most beautiful glass and pottery.

Everything was great! the only constructive feedback would be to have staff visit table less often during covid to reduce touching masks and faces.

We adored going to the Simon Pearce restaurant! They had a wonderful farm to table focused menu with a variety of options for various palettes. Everything in the restaurant could also be found in the store next door with wonderful charm and character. We split the cheese platter and I had the sesame chicken and a bloody mary! All items were highly recommended! Also it sits on the beautiful river with views of the water from the room in the restaurant where they seated us. They had all the precautionary measures in place for COVID and we felt very safe and well taken care of!
