Very nice quiet spot. Always a treat for us to dine at Sugar Hill Inn . Old style inn that brings us back to the 1800's New Hampshire atmosphere.

This review is based on the new chef that recently started. We use to have a great food experience each time but I was not impressed with our last meal. The presentation of the food was not appealing and lacking in flavor. I ordered a beignet inspired dessert and it looked like they just took random pieces of dough to fry up and threw together.

This restaurant is a favorite of ours to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries. It brings us back to the days when it was a treat to go somewhere special for dinner. The food is delicious and the presentation is a work of art. Dining here is like stepping back in time. It is a lovely experience.

Absolutely delicious. They only take one reservation per table per night so it is a very relaxed experienced- not rushed at all. The dining room is cozy with a fireplace and comfy chairs. The menu is a pre-fixe, each course of which was delicious. Very much recommend for a special occasion or a romantic date night.

A 4-course meal takes over two hours, but if you're OK with that, it's worth it. (This is the only reason I rated Service with 4 rather than 5 stars.) The menu was different and delicious. But if you have a lot of food issues (don't like or are allergic to many foods) this might not be the best restaurant for you, because you have a limited number of choices for each course.

Another spectacular meal at the Sugar Hill Inn. The dining room is beautiful -- large, candlelit tables and comfortable over-sized chairs, along with a crackling fire and 270 degree views. Great wine selection, which featured a couple of notable good values from South America and Europe. Server was knowledgeable about the menu and prompt yet unobtrusive. The food was top-notch -- the quality of ingredients, the flavors, the presentation and the chef's creativity are on par with some of Boston's best restaurants. Highlights this time around included the crab cake amuse-bouche, the trio of soups, the duck (including an unreal foie gras ravioli), and the cheese course (which came with a glass of port). Will be back again soon.

We went to Sugar Hill Inn for our last night before selling our condominium in New Hampshire. Every part of our experience was outstanding. We had a table right in front of the fireplace, which was warm and inviting. Our meal began with a delectable crab cake amuse bouche. Next, my husband and I each had the trio of soups - potato bacon, cream of pumpkin and crab bisque - each one outstanding with interesting little accompaniments in them. The Caesar salad was served in a parmesan cup and was delicious. I had the filet mignon and my husband had a pork tenderloin - both were cooked to perfection and were truly delicious. We each ended with a warm brownie with ice cream and had hot tea and decaf coffee. We were very pleased with our experience. Every morsel from start to finish was wonderful. Our server, Kathy, was very attentive and friendly. An memorable meal in a wonderful setting.

Fine dining at its finest. Four or five courses of amazing food. Served slowly so that you can really relax and enjoy. I had the lamb entree and my husband had the trout. Both were amazing. Every course a delight!

Wine list could have been a bit better, says my husband. But other than that, no complaints.

We had a wonderful romantic weekend in a beautiful suite at the SugarHikk Inn topped off with our delicious and romantic dinner at the Inn.
Our only complaint was a little bit too long a wait between our 2nd course and our main dish. Also we had to wait about 10 minutes passed our reservation time and were not offered a drink. Other than that it was fantastic! The first was special and delicious!

We have gone here once or twice a year for many years. It is a special place. We have eaten in fine restaurants all over the world. It would be unusual to find a fine dining experience like this anywhere. The atmosphere is serene, the food superb (they have had the same chef as long as I can remember) and the owner Steve is very welcoming. They provide a four or five course prix fixe menu and all of the options and combinations of food are wonderful. We will continue to return for many years to come!

Our New Year's Celebration on January 1 was superb! We enjoyed each of the 4 courses immensely! My son in law has limited culinary preferences and therefore was hesitant to try some of the creative dishes. To our surprise he loved all his choices! It was a perfect evening with exceptional food, great music, a roaring fire and lovely holiday decorations. Jeremy, our wonderful server completed the memorable evening. We will recommend The Sugar Hill Inn to everyone.

Not knowing much about Sugar Hill we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and the beautiful ambiance. Every course was distinctive in flavor and presentation. As a chef, I appreciated the thought and care that went into each dish. Very romantic atmosphere and the chef came out at the end of our meal which I always take as a sign of integrity and professionalism. Highly recommend for a special evening.

My husband and I were in the area for a quiet, romantic long weekend getaway after Thanksgiving. We were staying at Rabbit Hill Inn in Lower Waterford, VT, and wanted to try another good restaurant. We found this on Opentable and it had wonderful reviews. The menu had some interesting and delicious sounding options, so we decided to give it a try. The staff was so very friendly and our server had some great recommendations. I am a picky eater, but ventured out and decided to try some of their unique dishes. I was NOT disappointed! My husband also enjoyed everything he ate. The atmosphere was quiet and relaxing. We had read that the restaurant has a European style philosophy where the table is yours for the night...so you aren't rushed at all. The space is small, so not many people can dine at one time, but there were a couple of smaller groups there. That made it a little louder than it might otherwise be, but I don't think it was too loud. There is a nice fireplace to make the space cozy and we chose to sit at a table that had small couches as the seats. We sat near a couple who had eaten at our Inn the night before and recognized us. They were staying at Sugar Hill Inn and have been there several times. They said the cottages there are lovely and we would love to check them out sometime! We would highly recommend dining there to anyone who appreciates good food and good service!
