    We always choose Simon Pearce for any special occasion because it always feels special and never disappoints. From the VT Cheddar Soup to the Crème Brûlée, the food is amazing. The staff is so attentive, and you can’t beat the ambience anywhere. Thank you for making our 20th anniversary lunch so lovely!

    The food here is fantastic, definitely hard to choose from all the great options, but the kitchen seemed hugely understaffed, we waited an hour from being seated to getting our entrees. So only go if you have no other plans for the day.

    Excellent food, great place for a special occasion as it's a bit pricey - However the quality of the food is worth it and the portions are a bit larger than your typical fine dining. The only downside is with how close the tables are if your seated next to a super obnoxious Karen like we were, you cannot ignore it. If you think THAT highly of yourself, check your audacity before you go into a restaurant, even one like Simon Pearce.

    Was not overly enthused with the portion size of the dishes. We got the cheese plate and carrots for appetizers and they were enough for one person. The entrees were decent but similar thoughts on portion. Our server was pleasant, however, it did almost feel as though we were a bother with some of our questions. Overall, was an okay experience but won’t be traveling back up. (Drove up from PA)

    We had high hopes for what appeared to be a beautiful location with reviews that point to one of the areas best. Made reservations weeks in advance and let them know it was my wife's birthday. We were sat at a nice corner table for dinner that turned out freezing despite the little heater that was directed at us. We should have moved, that's on us. Our server was pleasant and attentive. We had the salad with goat cheese, cheese plate both good (salad could have been fresher with less vinagrete and tried the $10 cup of "signature" cheddar soup. The soup was a disappointment. Mediocre at best and tasted stretched, not bursting with cheddar, almost canned. Next came a $48 NY Strip medium and the horseradish encrusted cod. The Cod was excellent, however the steak and potatoes were cold, overcooked. It was sent back for a 15 minute wait, while my wife ate her cod. The replacement was medium, hot and very flavorful, but a large grizzled vein of Silverback running through is not indicative of a $50 steak. The sauce was very good but the porcini mushrooms were tough. The maple creme Brule was very good but no adornments like a spritz of fresh whipped creme, a maple cookie, a sprig of something or a candle - another miss. We were told the earliest they could seat us was 8pm, but the restaurant was more than 2/3 empty on arrival, where we waited about 10 minutes to be seated. An apology was given by our server for the cold beef, but no offer of a desert, aperitif etc., for me watching my wife eat her main course. For a nearly $200 meal, it's a miss to not make an accommodation for or to serve me a cold main course, the most expensive item on the menu. A beautiful setting no doubt, but many loose ends need to be tied up to permit this gem to remain on top and worthy of its location.

    One of the best meals we had on our trip to Woodstock. Every dish was presented beautifully and each component was seasoned. Obsessed with the duck and cumin carrots. We will definitely be back when we venture this way again.

    It’s the most beautiful atmosphere dining among the gallery of beautiful crafted wood products and glass and using them at the bar and restaurant as well. The food is fresh and creative and delicious! Love the house wines of their own label. It was a winter wonderland dining there and looking out over the waterfall and all the twinkle light. Such a treat and super special.

    Started with your signature soup. We shared as we were preparing for enjoying dessert. And with your special breads and butter that are irresistible beware! I had the appetizer mussels for my main course . The broth makes it so sweet and like a great soup..hubby had the horseradish crusted cod. He raved about it. We did finish with desert, the vanilla icecream with caramel sauce. It definitely is a shareable portion. They also have the best cappuccino 🙋🏼‍♀️. Oh….and the view…the waterfalls are spectacular

    We decided to give Simon Pierce another chance for lunch, as the food wasn’t very good the last time either. The crispy chicken was not crispy and was basically 3 sesame crusted chicken fingers. The cold noodles were good however. Mom’s shepherd pie was way overcooked and burned on the top edges. The chocolate bread pudding was dry and hard, and a less than golf ball size of ice cream did nothing to improve it. We saw a gentleman return his salmon due to being overcooked and it was tiny for the price point. The value to quality aspect in all dishes was sorely lacking. The only great thing here is the view. Please hire a new executive chef and put the steak frites back on the lunch menu.

    We were greeted kindly and the atmosphere was nice but the menu was limited. Altogether, from the appetizer to the dessert we found the food to be quite mediocre for the price. After weeks of waiting for a reservation we were disappointed with the entire meal. Maybe it was just not our kind of food but the folks were gracious.
