Simon Pearce Restaurant
The whole experience is perfect from venue, staff, food and more.
Another dining experience for the books!
Staff and Hostess were so hospitable.
We always feel like family when we visit this extra special place.
Celebrated my birthday and it was delightful!! The duck was wonderful as was the cod dish. I would travel again just to go to this restaurant
Love the Simon Pearce experience
We enjoyed a delicious meal at Simon Pearce on a chilly Vermont evening celebrating our son's 20th birthday. There were so many enticing offerings on the menu, it was hard to decide which to choose. My son and I had the cod, which is a highlighted menu item and has appeared in numerous cooking magazines. My husband had the vegetarian lasagna which was delicious. We each ordered different desserts, one better than the next.
Overall it was a wonderful dinner, and the ambiance was truly special. We look forward to visiting again in the summer when we can better appreciate the waterfall and setting.
Such a rare gem, from the dining to stunning pieces for sale and being able to watch artists at work. Highly recommend!
I've been going, regularly, to Simon Pearce for 30 years and have never had the slightest disappointment--ever! The food, wait staff, ambience, setting always the highest quality. I love this place!
Lovely restaurant. Very good, not great food. Excellent wine selection. For the area, not known for tons of excellent restaurants, definitely worth stopping at.
I loved every minute of this evening, Thank you!
Visiting area with children and grandchildren for a quick getaway weekend.
Everything was perfect.
This was a birthday for my significant other which I mentioned in the reservation notes. No mention of that any part during the night or when my date went to bathroom after dinner. I should have been more proactive but the well past normal level of the large birthday group spoiled a usually reliable dinner spot. Waitress was apologetic to us but not once did I hear any staff member ask if the table could subdue themselves. Disappointing experience all around-my date’s cod was over cooked. Will have to look elsewhere next time we are in town which is at least twice yearly. There are very good spots in Woodstock.
Beautiful setting. Especially if you can get a window table. Food was fine but not as special as I expected. Honestly, the food was a bit sparse and plain.
The food was phenomenal! We loved the ambiance as we sat by the window and had a view of the falls. Very nice date night spot. I had the cod for dinner and it was like butter. So tender !
Excellent quality food and service. Fine dining in a great atmosphere.
Lovely food and service as usual. The table wear is the star, though some of the food could have been made to look prettier. Service excellent. Despite saying it was a birthday on our booking, the server never mentioned it :(
Simon Pearce stands above everywhere else in the area. The ambiance is authentically “upscale rustic”, and is enhanced by the beautiful glassworks on display. The food is first rate, the service gracious. Also a good wine list! We can’t wait to return! Keep up the good work!
Pretty good. The rest of this is just aimed at getting to 50 characters.
As usual, it was a most enjoyable dining experience. Food was delicious, service was attentive without being annoying and a lovely evening was had by all.
The service was great, very friendly, pleasant, attentive, made great suggestions. Came here last year and every single thing was top notch. We got the same entrees this year because they were so good but the short rib was unusually dry and my duck was mostly fat/bone.. preparations for both were good though! Left a little disappointed with the food this time around.
I hadn't been here since my graduation dinner 3 years ago and remembered it being so phenomenal, especially at sunset. If you're on the porch or by a window the view is absolutely breathtaking. Depending on the meal you choose, you may be disappointed but on the whole the food is amazing. Service can also vary, they're generally friendly but not always the most attentive.
Mushroom fondue- not what we were expecting but very pleased. Less cheese than anticipated, but a wonderful blend of flavors
Braised short rib- generous serving, but when we got it it was very dry and could have used much more gravy
Tenderloin- simply delicious. Tender, flavorful, and cooked to perfection!
Horseradish crusted cod- so perfectly crisp on the outside and most and flaky on the inside. The mashed potatoes and leeks compliment it so well, but I didn't love the balsamic reduction
Overall a wonderful experience, but I would certainly recommend going when the sun is still up!
Valentines weekend getaway
Our favorite restaurant in the area. Took to visiting friends from California and they were impressed.
Good environment, lovely place. Food was good but not excellent!
Great overall experience. Come a few minutes early to see the glass blowing, tour the shop, and enjoy the beautiful waterfall. We always get excellent advice on ordering wine. They don't try to sell you the most expensive bottle in the place, but always recommend something interesting! All six of us had fantastic dinners.
Wonderful dining experience in every way. You must put this on your "must visit" list.
Fantastic! Service (Nick) was impeccable. Food was delicious. Ambiance was quietly elegant!
We had a wonderful server. She said she has been there a while. Food was amazing !!! Just don’t sit in the corner seat overlooking the falls... great view but extremely cold ( even with a heater)
Food was outstanding. My wife and i both had the arctic char which was amazing. The chef was very accommodating to my wife being gluten free.
Perfection all around
This is our favorite place to eat when visiting our Dartmouth student, who loves to bring his friends! The cooking is excellent, the service is top-notch, and the vibe is just right.
The food at Simon Pearce never disappoints! The presentation at the dinner table is always beautiful. We never want the dinner to end. Our favorite dinner destination!
The service was exceptional our server went above and beyond to make our dinner special. The food was excellent. Definitely highly recommend
We went to Simon Pearce for Valentines Day and it met all of our expectations for a romantic evening meal.
Wonderful as always. Service was attentive and food was perfect as always.
Our favorite restaurant. Will be back on Monday, February 16 with two visiting friends from California
