Not much better than a fast food restaurant. Not inexpensive but the wine was very good. I will not be dining there in the near future.

Consistently great dining and cozy ambiance Has kept us coming back for many years. The well balanced menu, thorough and efficient wait staff are essential elements of a fine dining experience.

Outstanding menu, service and location! Our best meal on the trip thus far! Had deconstructed lamb wrapped in puff pastry with spinach that was incredible, and risotto cakes as well. Salads were excellent! Our server was fun and added to the ambiance!

Spent four nights in Vermont. Ate one dinner here. Food was very good as well as the service. Two menus to choose from, a bistro menu with lots of choices and a three course prix fixed menu. One course is a small salad so it’s...More

We went to the Prince and the Pauper based on friends recommendations. We were not disappointed at all. Being lactose intolerant, our server Larinda, was the most caring server I've ever had. She even told me the bread is dairy free and I didn't even...More

The menu is limited but still quite diverse. I would suggest that when you make a reservation you pose that question. Although busy and successful for many decades, the restaurant is still run as a craft enterprise, or make... More
