Dining at Simon Pearce is always an enjoyable special experience. The food is very good, the service is excellent, and the ambiance and view are terrific. For this visit the weather was great so the dining room doors were pulled open and the wonderful sound of the waterfall filled the room. A terrific Spring dining experience.

My wife & I have eaten at Simon Pierce many times & always look forward to a return visit. The place is always beautiful, clean & love the view. Service is great. This time the food was good, but not quite as good as previous visits, even though we ordered what we have in the past. But we will go back - still better than other restaurants.

The room was extremely noisy with gatherings from other tables.
The special for the night was short ribs which were tasteless and not worth eating. The other three dinners were good. Our server was very pleasant.

Simon Pearce is a beautiful setting for a wonderful meal. Set next to Quechee Falls, it is restful. The food is superbly presented, delicious, healthy.
Beverages are served in hand-blown glassware. The adjoining store is a wonderland of hand-blown glassware. This place is not to be missed.

Why does this restaurant great you with, "we are short staffed"? is this an excuse to offer not up to expected standards? We were told that they were short staffed and could not offer everything, mainly the lounge. This is a close quote to what was told to us. "We can't find good help, just imagine what the ""Toxic"" restaurants have. I so much wanted to ask what was considered a toxic restaurant. I was afraid they would say a restaurant that we liked. Then I would have to leave. I didn't find out because we been been looking forward to eating here again after a year.
Started with an appetizer, Indian Prawns, beware if sharing there are only 3. I don't understand only 3 when most couples share. Plus they were not that good, and $14.00. Save the money next time.
The meals were very tasty, well presented. That's about all I can say. They biggest problem we had is that we were forgotten. The server very seldom came to the table, and never asked how was the meal. I believe that we needed to get every other server to get us what was needed. After spending $152.00 with tax on 2 meals and beverages, I would expect a little bit of attention paid to us.
After this visit I'm not sure when, or if we will return.

To the Simon Pearce Management: I also am busy, and work hard for my money. As they say in Vermont We Are All In This Together.

Simon Pearce is one of the best restaurants in the country. The ambiance on the river with a covered bridge in the background is just beautiful. And the food is perfect.

We get to Simon Pearce for dinner at least once or twice a year. We live about an hour and 1/2 away, but it is always worth the trip. The food is always fabulous and the service excellent. It is a gem!

This is such a fine restaurant, excellent food and the service is outstanding. The waitstaff are properly trained and are attentive without being obtrusive. I recommend the lamb burger, so very good. Also a great appetizer was the calamari, delicious.
Perfect restaurant for a special occasion, great location and ambience.
