The food was phenomenal! We loved the ambiance as we sat by the window and had a view of the falls. Very nice date night spot. I had the cod for dinner and it was like butter. So tender !

Simon Pearce stands above everywhere else in the area. The ambiance is authentically “upscale rustic”, and is enhanced by the beautiful glassworks on display. The food is first rate, the service gracious. Also a good wine list! We can’t wait to return! Keep up the good work!

The service was great, very friendly, pleasant, attentive, made great suggestions. Came here last year and every single thing was top notch. We got the same entrees this year because they were so good but the short rib was unusually dry and my duck was mostly fat/bone.. preparations for both were good though! Left a little disappointed with the food this time around.

I hadn't been here since my graduation dinner 3 years ago and remembered it being so phenomenal, especially at sunset. If you're on the porch or by a window the view is absolutely breathtaking. Depending on the meal you choose, you may be disappointed but on the whole the food is amazing. Service can also vary, they're generally friendly but not always the most attentive.

Mushroom fondue- not what we were expecting but very pleased. Less cheese than anticipated, but a wonderful blend of flavors

Braised short rib- generous serving, but when we got it it was very dry and could have used much more gravy

Tenderloin- simply delicious. Tender, flavorful, and cooked to perfection!

Horseradish crusted cod- so perfectly crisp on the outside and most and flaky on the inside. The mashed potatoes and leeks compliment it so well, but I didn't love the balsamic reduction

Overall a wonderful experience, but I would certainly recommend going when the sun is still up!

Great overall experience. Come a few minutes early to see the glass blowing, tour the shop, and enjoy the beautiful waterfall. We always get excellent advice on ordering wine. They don't try to sell you the most expensive bottle in the place, but always recommend something interesting! All six of us had fantastic dinners.

Was there for dinner by myself. The staff went out of their way to make sure I had a lovely experience. Gave me a table with a lovely view of the covered bridge and waterfall. My waitress was very attentive and made excellent suggestions. When I wasn’t sure about the raspberry sauce on the Callebaut chocolate cake for dessert, she told me she could bring it with salted caramel sauce instead - divine!! Thank you so much. I will definitely be back and bring my friends.

The service was excellent, made us feel very comfortable. We just ordered a salad and an appetizer each. This way we were able to try dishes we normally would not order. The food was excellent. We had a table at the window, and the view of the waterfall is amazing.

Everything was perfect. Our server coursed our meal very slowly as requested. She was extremely knowledgeable about the menu. When we expressed further interest in the wine she suggested we speak with Stephanie, I believe, who made wonderful suggestions as well. The setting is just gorgeous. I can’t say enough good things. Bon Appetito!
