Simon Pearce Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
If you want a 5-Star, never disappoint, type of meal, this THE PLACE. My wife and I had a Valentines Day meal on this trip and everything was top notch. I had the duck confit appetizer and my wife had the the Maine Lobster bisque. Both were expertly prepared and tasted fantastic. The crispy duck and pan seared rib eye were awesome entrees and the desserts were also fantastic. Couple fantastic food with great service and you have one of the best restaurants in all of New England.
We were a party of 10 and generally everyone enjoyed their food and wine. My husband had the Osso Buco and thought the portion was very small. He ended up eating part of my meal. We had appetizers, bread, and shared a salad prior to the meal. The store and view are amazing.
Lovely evening. Pleasant atmosphere, very good service. I opted for a signature dish because I had never had it on previous occasions. I should have gone with the special. My dinner was good not great. Tasted the special as someone else in our group ordered it. I preferred that but not the restaurant’s fault.
Visiting Simon Pearce in Quechee is quite an experience. My husband and I spent over 3 hours there perusing the store front, taking pictures of the icy water fall and covered bridge, watching the glass blowing demonstration downstairs, getting pre-dinner drinks at the bar, and finally sitting for a full meal. We enjoyed every minute of it! All of the food was delicious, but the soup appetizers had to be our favorite. All of the staff (from the glass blowers to the waiters) were so knowledgeable about the products and willing to answer questions. I cannot wait for my next trip to Quechee and to Simon Pearce, hopefully this time in the warmer months!
Wonderful experience, beautiful restaurant. We went for a date night on a weekend getaway from Boston. We were seated right by the waterfall. The whole restaurant feels magical from the lighting just as you enter to the view from the dining room. It had an fantastic local beer list and the food was phenomenal. The extra bonus was to be able to poke around the shop and go view the glass blowers downstairs. Well worth the drive, it made our trip!
We have had lunch at Simon Pearce in the past and this time came for our anniversary dinner. It never disappoints. The food is excellent and so is the service. We had the Simon Pearce sparkling wine with our meal this time and it was outstanding, so much so that we purchase some to bring home.
We had an excellent dinner with our 2 boys. We requested a table with a view and they accommodated us with a gorgeous table that looked out over the frozen waterfall. We especially loved our server named Stephanie. Quite possibly the best server we’ve ever had. My boys loved her and she made our dinner super-enjoyable.
The table we were given has a vent above it that is known by management to blow cold air on diners. Although the waitress made an attempt to turn up the heat in the entire restaurant to help compensate for cold air, the result was mixed. In my opinion, no one should be asked to sit at that end of restaurant until problem is resolved because it affected the evening and our conversation.
Lovely ambiance - food was very good, though a bit pricey and service was slow. Entree took far too long to arrive. Very nice though. I guess for the area, this is destination dining. Picturesque and you can shop while you wait for your table (by design?). Went for lunch the day before and the wait was ridiculous. We were very last seated & then alone in the restaurant & felt Kind of rushed. After an hour-and-a-half wait, was somewhat anticlimactic. Food is nice though - get the Vermont cheese plate!
