Table was ready when we arrived. Cocktails were a little different and improved (Manhattan with home crafted cherry syrup. Not sweet). Salads were extraordinary. Lobster was the best we've every had. Tender. Perfectly cooked. On a bed of fresh corn. Lamb "stew" was incredibly tender,...More

Creative food, very good service, excellent drinks (try the Dirty martini) Chef lives up to his reputation. Worth the trip. Expensive but worth it for a special meal.

The smoked duck appetizer was excellent. The chicken risotto and poached lobster entrees had many layered flavors that combined for a memorable meal. The service was friendly and efficient.

Michael's on the Hill is located within a circa 1820 farmhouse, picturesquely set on a hill, with breathtaking views of the Green Mountains. The restaurant can comfortably seat 84 guests, and has a full bar with a piano lounge and outside porch available for dining. We boast a large enclosed wrap-around porch dining room (with a view from each table) and a beautifully renovated barn room where guests may dine in luxury, all the while being reminded of the history of the barn.
Michael's on the Hill emits a sophisticated charm without the pretentious attitude so commonplace in a restaurant with fine food. We offer locally driven, innovative European cuisine and a welcoming, refined atmosphere. When it comes to elements as vital as flavor, taste and preparation, a great respect for the ingredients must exist. As we believe, a chef's ego should never outshine the true stars, the ingredients. Our dishes are innovative, flavorful and fresh, focusing on local ingredients, and created in a European style.
The evening always turns Michael's on the Hill into a romantic, warm, and festive atmosphere for guests to enjoy dinner expertly created by Chef/Owner Michael Kloeti. All dinners start with a warm, linen-wrapped sourdough baguette, sweet butter, and a bowl of marinated olives. Whether sitting near the fire, or on our grapevine-surrounded porch, guests are enveloped in a pleasing comfort, while enjoying the piano and personalized attention. Come for a visit, and allow us to share conversation, hospitality and a bit of home.
