My wife and I ate here twice during our four night visit to Stowe. The restaurant is a short drive outside of town. Make sure you make a reservation as they get busy. The restaurant has a comfortable feel as it is in an old house with a large wood fireplace. There is a good amount of parking in their lot

Prices are moderate but worth what you get. Portion sizes are on the large side.

The first night we split the Romaine salad which was awesome. My wife had the chicken dish which was just added to the menu. It was in a cream sauce with cheese, had some veggies and new potatoes. My wife enjoyed it as she finished the dish but thought it had an unusual flavor which we could not pinpoint. I had the jambalaya which is very good. We finished both nights with their flan which is rich and creamy and is to die for.

The seconds night we started with the pineapple salad which was ok, and for dinner we both had the jambalaya which once again did not disappoint.

Our server Hanna was better the first night than the server we had the second night but overall they both did their jobs. Hanna just had the edge as she spent a few minutes talking and listening to us as the second server (brunette) did not.

Overall we highly recommend and will return while in Stowe.

We had the best food at this place while we were in Stowe. Excellent flavors, and so fresh. It is small so suggest reservations unless you don't mind waiting. They have a fireplace for cold evenings, they started while we were there and it was cozy. Easy to overhear people at the tables around, and if there are kids it may be a little noisy. As it was the night we were there, we were in the room with only adults so it was quiet and we chatted with the table next to us. We had soups, entrees, and dessert. Recommend to anyone who enjoys good food and new places.

Went to this restaurant after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed!! The bread is warm and delicious. Truffle fries are fantastic. We had the pineapple salad and the grilled romaine - both unique and delicious. Fur the main dish, go with the seafood epiphany.. changes with what they have fresh and is excellent. The warm apple dessert is to die for. Well done!

I have Celiac Disease and the restaurant was very well versed about my needs. The food was very well prepared. The building is over 200 years old and has a real fireplace and very pretty. Hanna was our waitress and did an excellent job. I would highly recommend.
