We vacationed at Stratton for the Christmas/New Years week and had the chance to dine at the finest restaurants in the area. The meal we enjoyed at the Marsh Tavern, in the Equinox was as good or better than any that week. The atmosphere in the hotel, and in the Tavern, was welcoming, comforting, and friendly. The service was next to perfect, and the food was so delicious, that we are adding this to our list of favorites for our future visits to the area. We loved everything we tasted, and we felt relaxed and pampered. Do yourself a favor and bring the family to this wonderful restaurant.

Will never go back. Service was horrible. Food was ok, nothing special, but not bad either. Unfortunately, it took literally over an hour for our meal to arrive while we sat there without drinks or any attention, whatsoever. Additionally, prices were way over the top for both the meal and the overall experience.

They comped us on our dozen oysters to apologize for the inconvenience, which was nice. It wasn't enough to change our view.

Reservation made for 6:30, seated promptly, many children running around , and our dinner was not served until just before 8 p.m. It was obvious that the kitchen was overwhelmed with
orders and probably because of the buffet in the colonnade, orders were backed up and slow in
being served. Nothing was offered to us because of the inconvenience of waiting more than an
hour for dinner to be served. It was necessary for me to ask for a steak knife when the lamb chops were served and also for mint sauce.

The root vegetables were barely cooked. The chicken was lackluster. All I tasted in the chicken was a hint of salt. Very disappointing. So not worth the money and I won't come back.

Although, the menu was very limited, if you liked the choices they had available for the evening selection, the food was expertly prepared and had a lot of flavor. The service was good and they didn't rush you and had a very nice assortment of rolls and for those with a GF allergy you could order GF rolls. I would recommend the restaurant if you are staying at the hotel and didn't want to travel to go for dinner.

Indifferent service was the hallmark of our visit. We were seated and a woman came over with 2 glasses of water. Put them down and never said a word. Our waitress drifted over some 15 minutes later to take our order. Given the delay in getting anyone's attention, we opted to order a bottle of wine and our entire dinner. This seemed to throw her off - she wanted just our drink order. WE soon found out why. Food was presented in haphazard fashion by a 3rd person. My husband's appetizer came out in quick order. I said, "Really? The appetizer before our wine? Would you please check on the bottle of wine we ordered?" More minutes passed and the bottle appeared. Then, inscrutably, a plate of breads was put on the table as my husband was finishing the last bits of his salad. 20 more minutes passed and our entrees came. The food was good but nothing special. Someone came back to clear as we were finishing. Before I could say "doggie bag" referring to the remaining half of my steak, my plate was whisked away. No question of "Would you like to take this home" Or, even, are you finished?" Just whisked away. Again the food was nothing special so I didn't object. As if the meal wasn't sufficiently disappointing, the ambience left a bit to be desired. We were seated near the kitchen exit - quite drafty. Kids were running past our table. I know that this restaurant is located in a hotel but maybe some expectations could be set about reasonable behavior. Or maybe the kids are just picking up on the indifference . . .

The experience was disappointing because we told the waiter we needed to be done in one and one half hours, but the dinner meal took FOREVER to arrive. The appetizers arrived in good time. We were so rushed once the meal came, we could not finish it and then the waiter would not bring our check. We left one person back to pay the bill so we could go off to another scheduled event. It was most unsatisfactory.

My boyfriend and I were staying at the hotel as a weekend getaway and were celebrating my birthday. We went during peak foliage so all the restaurants were booked up so we decided to stay onsite and eat in this restaurant. The food was excellent (the smoked duck and Cremont cheese in the starter... worth the entire plate!!). When we were first seated there were delays between being greeted, drinks ordered, drinks arriving but I would say that was due to our server having too many tables to look after. Once some of his groups left he was very attentive and friendly. We wanted to go watch the debate and were told they would not put it on in the restaurant (which we understood) so we ended up meal kind of abruptly to go back to our room but otherwise a very pleasantly meal.

Have been going to the Marsh Tavern during the Columbus Day weekend for the last 15 years. This year I was greatly disappointed and the decline in the dining experience has been going downhill for the last 5 years. How can you have an autumnal menu without any type of brined or grilled pork chop? Also the service has declined as we were not even made aware of the special porterhouse carving special. It appears that unless you dine in the Chop House you are a second class citizen.
Surprised to see a multitude of guests walking around the inn with their dogs. This wasn't anything you would have seen in the past.
If you have not been to Marsh Tavern in 5 or 6 years, please do not go and expect the fine dining that you had been accustomed to in the past. The New England charm has been replaced with city chic.

Menu was very different; not to our liking. We had the venison loin which, although tender, was so heavily seasoned with pepper that we had a hard time eating it. The crab cakes that I had for appetizer were excellent - had I know how big they were I would have ordered them for an entree. Service was excellent and atttentive. Unfortunately, we didn't realize that steaks and other beef entrees were only available in the chop room. If we had known that, we would have eaten there instead.

When we arrived at Marsh Tavern we changed to the adjacent room called the Chop House. A perfect small room with perfect steakhouse food with no unnecessary frills! Service was friendly and precise, steaks cooked perfectly; sides arrived cooked perfectly and hot! Menu is totally different from the Marsh Tavern---more upscale and more specific. We have eaten at Marsh before and it is good, but we were in the mood for steaks and a little more upscale meal which was delivered perfectly. Service matched the food. We went on the Friday of Columbus Day week-end---the busiest of the year. They were able to give us the last available table. Everything from the hostess who set us up to the waiter and the runners, the front of the house was great.

After a long day of travel a quiet supper is what we needed. The Marsh gave it to us - apple/butternut soup, mussels, shepherd's pie, pear salad all made it to our table. They were all excellent and were presented well. Just what we were looking for.

Went for dinner. Service was friendly and professional. Food was not bad. Kale salad needed a little advance dressing because the leaves were a bit plastic, but the Asparagus Toasts were great!! My Chicken wasn't bad, although the carrots should have been peeled as it makes the dish look "dirty". My Partner's Ribeye was great. Dessert's were great. My cobbler was very nice and my partner had a brownie with salty caramel sauce (made for him by the kitchen, as he is lactose intolerant; such a thoughtful accommodation) which, too was tasty. Overall, nice evening.

I took my husband to the Equinox for a quick weekend getaway in late April. We had dinner on Friday evening in the Marsh Tavern as it was very convenient and had good reviews. We were welcomed by name and guided to a specially reserved table! The waitress could not have been nicer or friendly. The food was delicious, hot and she paced the entrée to our liking. (Some restaurants pay no attention to how to pace the serving of their meals.) We had a lovely, casual dinner with a wonderful VT ambiance!
