Description: Simon Pearce Restaurant, recently voted one of America’s Most Romantic Restaurants by Travel and Leisure and Best of New England, VT 2011: Meal with a View, offers Creative American cuisine utilizing fresh local ingredients, thoughtfully prepared and attentively served in a classic restored Mill overlooking the Ottauquechee River. The staff motto is "quality without pretense." The dining room is casually elegant with views overlooking the waterfall and covered bridge. Recipient of Wine Spectator's "Best of Award of Excellence" since 1993, they offer a series of wine dinners monthly from November through May. They feature handmade glassware and pottery, which you can observe being made in their on-site glass and pottery workshop at The Mill. Enjoy their retail shop before or after you dine. Reservations are not accepted for lunch but are accepted for dinner. The restaurant will do their best to accommodate requests but does not guarantee any specific seating.

Service and food were amazing. Best Pork Chop I have ever had. Cooked to perfection. The meat was about 2 inches thick and it was still perfect.

Amazing place for a special occasion.

This restaurant is a destination spot and reservations are a must. If possible, ask to be seated so that you can see the river; we were lucky enough to have the corner table overlooking the waterfall, which provided a superb backdrop to a wonderful meal. Truly fine dining with a very attentive staff; all the tabletop is Simon Pearce, which completes the experience. A shop on site offers the opportunity to purchase something beautiful to remember your visit. Highly recommended.

Great setting overlooking the river. waterfall and covered bridge and great food. I particularly enjoy lunch because it seems like a better value, it isn't dark so you can enjoy the views, and they serve these delicious rolls that they don't offer during dinner.

Such a lovely place! Excellent food, great service, a gorgeous location (especially if you can sit outside overlooking the waterfall). Our lunch was outstanding, and everyone in the restaurant seemed to be completely delighted by their meals. A very nice place for lunch (and probably dinner too).

Dinner with my wife alongside the dam on the Ottachechee River on and incredibly beautiful night. Food was terrific, as always, service terrific, as always, ambiance over the top. Well worth the hour drive to get here, can't wait to go back.
