We went on an autumn weeknight--probably not the busiest time. The dining room was quiet and understated, with plenty of space between diners. Host and server were friendly, but reserved, and allowed us to enjoy our meal. Service was excellent. We had a four course prix-fixe, very reasonably priced, and each course was very well done. We particularly enjoyed the entrees, which were perfectly prepared. Overall an excellent experience, and well worth the trip to a relatively out of the way spot.

A delicious dinner, exquisitely presented, was served to me at a private table. The owner's dog came and sat by my feet, providing welcome companionship as I was traveling alone. A warm, friendly, and personal atmosphere was created by the host, Steve. A lovely relaxing place with great attention and care given to details of comfort with artistic taste. Highly recommended. Thank you!

We were very excited to be staying at Sugar Hill; it has the charm, setting and is awarded wonderful recommendations.
Our meal was very tasty and presented lovely however my husband left feeling hungry and wanting
more food. His steak was a meager portion. Very simply put..... The meal-- appetizer, main course, was portioned for a petite person. I ordered a very delicious special donut dessert because I was still looking
for more food as well.
We definitely felt for a meal tab over $200 for 2 the offerings would have been generous & fantastic. It was our first experience staying at an inn in New England.

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.

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!
