This review is for The Other Woman. There are times this restaurant is excellent: great food, good service, and (always) beautiful surroundings. But too often either the food or service is off. We ate there this evening and the fries were cold, the service was terrible (slow, not very friendly, inattentive), the meat overcooked. I would not bother with a... More

Good food and Nice service. But too much aircondition - and the interior could use an Update. It seems like you are stepping into a Living room from the seventies and there is a lot of Wood. The menu is wide and I do wonder if they would benefit from having less choices. How all in all the food was... More

We had an early dinner here one rainy evening. We were seated promptly, and given our drinks. Our waitress was professional and very knowledge, but also warm and friendly. I ordered the tuna entree......touted as a favorite from the day they opened in 1996. Well, finding a chef who can do tuna the right way is difficult.....to find one who... More

We were referred to this restaurant from the owners of the Olympia Lodge. What a fantastic place to eat. Being seated in the atrium, looking out at the fall colors made this very enjoyable. The food was delicious and the service was impeccable. Do not miss this fine establishment.

It is such a beautiful location in this gorgeous town of Manchester Vermont. Tuesday food and service are simple but good a most enjoyable stop off in Vermont. Walking around the town is a delightful experience and a simple lunch at this very Typical Vermont hotel restaurant a very good idea. The bread was delicious as was the local Vermont... More

Went above and beyond our expectations. Opened for our conference for lunch when they are not usually open. The Cheddar Broccoli soup was amazing. The turkey sandwich were out of the world. We can't wait to go back some other time. The staff was friendly and accommodating.

This was a real disappointment. We stayed in Manchester over Columbus Day weekend, which was quite busy. One would think the local restaurants would be prepared with staff and servers, The Other Woman was not. I found the bartender wearing a baseball cap to be inappropriate, even if it is a "local eatery," and my 1st martini was horrible. Once... More

During a weekend of excellent meals, dinner at the Perfect Wife stood out. Everything we ordered was delicious and fresh tasting. My duck was one of the best I've ever ordered; the salad tasted so fresh. My son very much enjoyed the prime rib and their take on Peking duck was outstanding as well. Service was a bit slow but...

Amy's creative approach to combining ingredients results in an intriguing and delicious menu. Enjoy a memorable fine dining experience while relaxing in our rustic cobblestone walled restaurant and greenhouse garden room.

Our broad wine list and extensive selection of spirits will provide just the right accompaniment for your meal. And as a reward for eating all your veggies, you should treat yourself to a delicious homemade dessert.

Afterwards, feel free to stop in at our spirited local tavern for an after dinner drink or a game of darts, with live music in the tavern on most Friday evenings.
