Eine Mahlzeit in Jessica's Restaurant ist stets unvergesslich. Der erst vor kurzem überarbeitete Eßbereich spiegelt perfekt den Komfort einer ungezwungenen Atmosphäre und den neuenglischen Stil dieses Landgasthofs wider. Jessica's Restaurant erwartet Sie im Swift House Inn in Middlebury, Vermont. Das Jessica's befindet sich nur zwei Blocks vom Stadtzentrum von Middlebury entfernt und begrüßt Sie in einem Herrenhaus aus dem Jahre 1814, inmitten wunderschöner Rasenflächen und Gärten. Das Jessica's bietet mit seiner ungezwungenen Atmosphäre den idealen Ort für ein Abendessen für zwei Personen- aber natürlich auch für ein Festessen für 4 bis 40 Personen! Kommen Sie etwas früher und genießen Sie ein Getränk an der Bar. Tom verfügt über mehr als 30 Jahre Erfahrung an der Bar und mixt Ihnen gerne einen leckeren Cocktail oder empfiehlt Ihnen genau die richtige Flasche Wein für Ihren Abend. Über 6 Jahre in Folge wurde die Weinkarte mit dem Wine Spectator Award of Excellence ausgezeichnet! Gerne dürfen Sie natürlich auch ein Bier aus der Region vom Fass genießen, sei es ein Switchback aus Burlington oder Vermont oder eines unserer Biere aus Middlebury, von denen eines aus der Brauerei Otter Creek und eines aus der Brauerei Drop-In stammt.

This was our first time dining at Jessica's Restaurant. Everything was exceptional. Our daughter enjoyed sharing Belgian fries, Greek salad and even the Duck two ways. We will definitely return.

Small portions. Food cold. Waitress snippy. Husband got sick that night from bad piece of Salmon. Sad to say, won't be going back.

Always a delightful experience at Jessica’s. The braised lamb shank melted in the mouth. The Argentinian Malbec was not very good. Disappointed that they took the Meiomi Pinot noir off the list.

A wonderful place to dine. One can go out to eat at a multitude places but this is one of those places where one can truly dine. The food was exceptional as was the service and atmosphere. When you leave you will only be thinking of when you can make it back. Treat yourself to this experience. The food alone will blow you away but the rest of the whole experience will only make you want to come back.

This was my first experience at Jessica's, and I would heartily recommend it to anyone desiring fine dining! My only issue was the noise level in the room we were in, and I have hearing issues regardless! All other aspects of our experience were superb, and I can't fault Jessica's for noisy patrons who were also enjoying their high-quality meal!

Lovely dinner at a Vermont Inn. The food and service were excellent. I had a vegetarian entry of stuffed squash. The seasoning was spot on and I left feeling full. Of course, topping it off with the banana bread pudding helped.

Food was delicious and sommelier quite knowledgeable when helping us choose a bottle of wine. As to ambience, white tablecloths would help. Also we had requested a table by the fireplace when making reservation, but were not even offered a table in that room. As we walked through, we saw the fireplaces weren’t lit anyway - a bit strange for October in VT! Overall though, we enjoyed the food and wine and feel it was a good choice for a special occasion.

We stayed at the Swift House Inn (which we highly recommend) and ate at Jessica's. The meal was absolutely lovely. The food was delicious and we felt that we were dining in someone's home. The manager walked table to table to talk to guests, which was a nice touch. Highly recommend! We only spent one night there but it was the highlight of our trip as far as accomodations and food go.

David, the sommelier, was very knowledgeable about the extensive wine list. Our waiter, Drew, looked after us very well and tuned each course to perfection.
Our meals were delicious.

One night in Middlebury, we decided to give Jessica’s a try, having heard good things. We are glad we did. This was certainly the best meal we had in Vermont during an extended vacation. Menu was nicely varied, allowing diners to just graze, or have a (very good) burger, or enjoy something more elaborate, many things incorporating regional ingredients. While food was upscale, setting was relaxed and informal. Clientele was a combination of locals, inn guests and visitors to the college.
Wine list was a pleasant surprise, featuring some overlooked gems, both American and European. Beer drinkers would be happy with something from the short list of craft beers.

I have only given 3 stars for service. The host and server were both very nice, but we were ignored for some time after being seated, and had to wait quite a while to get the bottle of wine we ordered, while the manager was busy bussing tables and scurrying back and forth to the kitchen. I can only assume they were under-staffed that particular evening, and this is not the norm. We would definitely return.

There are very few restaurants that get a total excellence score from me, meeting ALL of my criteria. Jessica's has just done that. Thank you for a really lovely dinner! My only regret is that you are a four hour drive from my home.

2 couples celebrated one of the four’s 69th birthday on a Sunday mid-September night. Our table was not quite ready when we arrived, so we had delicious cocktails in the cozy bar (all to ourselves) and good conversation with the friendly bartender during the 5 minute wait. We moved to our table in the smaller dining room (4 tables), as the larger was filled with diners on a inn to inn biking tour. The dining rooms are warmly decorated in keeping with the inn’s previous use as an early VT governor’s mansion: fireplace, wood floors and tables, etc. in a bucolic setting walking distance to downtown. The house Cabernet Sauvignon recommended by the sommelier was enjoyed by all. The eclectic menu, much being locally sourced, was a delight. All shared the fabulous melt in your mouth broccoli kale hybrid blossoms that were flash fried as an appetizer, in addition to separate orders of chicken liver pate on baguette and smoked bacon corn chowder, all delish. The duck “served 2 ways”, center loin pork chops, and Swift burgers with potato fries rendered in duck fat were all excellent thoroughly enjoyed entrees that were on clean plates when we were done. One serving of the homemade salted caramel ice cream was communally shared for the ending to a wonderful dining experience. The wait staff was informative, friendly, and respectful of our “private” corner table. A place we had not been to for awhile, but where we will return at least quarterly to enjoy the seasonally changed menu.

Wonderful location. The small bar was fantastic: friendly, comfortable, excellent bar tending. Restaurant area was warm, inviting, with non-intrusive yet efficient wait service. And the food: my “2 way” duck for sumptuous.

Food and service were excellent. However, there was a major glitch between OpenTable and Jessica's, in which my reservation was recorder as 8:00 PM rather than 7:30. This necessitated having to wait 35 minutes while the staff was juggling times in able to seat us. They staff also said they did not book reservations on the half-hour.

We were staying at the Swift House during the week after Labor Day. Decided to go to dinner on our 2nd night at Jessica's. Just a wonderful, romantic, perfect dinner. We were pleasantly surprised by the attention to detail and as many servers as they had on a Wednesday night. We normally don't order the specials, but I had the Halibut and my wife had the filet. Just wonderful. Flavorful and presented beautifully. Lovely B&B. Thank you for a great dinner.

The hospitality, from the hostess to the bartender to the server, was fantastic. We felt welcomed and appreciated. The food was delicious, and beautifully presented. We ordered the glazed pork chop, the salmon and the almond encrusted halibut, and each dish was flavorful. The Malbec was lovely. The woman who waited on us was really sweet to engage my son in conversation about starting school at Middlebury College.

My meal, beef with mushrooms and mashed potatoes, was excellent. However, my mother’s Thai noodles were horrible. I, too, found them mushy and lacking taste. Either the noodles had been over cooked and the bland peanut sauce made them stick together in a big lump. Shame, since we paid so much and the service was excellent. The melon and ginger sorbet, on the other hand, was dreamy.

We had a truly wonderful meal; the beet salad with blue cheese to start with. I had the roast chicken, my wife had the salmon, both were perfectly prepared and presented. Paired the dishes with a very reasonably priced Sancerre, and finished the evening with a selection of cheeses and a little Port. The wine list is truly impressive, they deserve their many awards!!!

The location is perfect, feeling somewhat secluded on the middle of Middlebury. The seating, whether inside or outside on the covered deck, is very comfortable. The service was excellent from start to finish and the food was stellar! Definitely worth your time and money to enjoy firs class food and atmosphere!
