This is a lovely spot - midway between Middleburg and Burlington. We spent time talking with one of the two owners and others on staff in the afternoon over cocktails and wandering out to enjoy the grounds. Dinner was excellent, as was the service - there really was nothing lacking. Our room was comfortable, retaining the feel of an old... More

Tourterelle could not be more charming. A group of us had dinner there after a day of meetings on a cold and rainy evening. There service and the setting were warm and friendly. There is a great selection of entrees -- I had the grilled octopus, which was delicious. Also the Tourterelle salad was large and tasty!

If you are in the mood for a lovely french dinner visit Tourterelle in New Haven, Vt. There is a lovely inn that is home to a French bistro. It was one of the best French meals that we have had since our return to the states. Each course was carefully prepared with fresh local ingredients. The wine list was... More

Beautiful setting, interesting menu--much larger than I imagined, and totally full the night we went. I had the daily pasta special, and while it was good, it was far from great--not really much flavor. But everyone else's meals were amazing, and the setting couldn't be better. About 10 minute drive from Middlebury

After hearing for many years about the fine reputation of Tourterelle from a restaurateur friend whom we polled for his favorite restaurant, we finally visited Tourterelle in early September. Christine promptly returned my phone reservation message, and was quick and eager to accommodate my special dessert request for a member of our party with a dietary restriction. We were 5... More

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner in their restaurant/inn setting overlooking the Green Mountains. The ownership and staff’s attention to detail and graciousness made for a delightful evening. The signature attention of the Chef was present from the innovative cocktails to the French desserts (beignets and terrines). Our choice of appetizers (oysters), salads (Tourterelle) and entrees (Bouillabaisse and Vegetarian Tartiflette) were... More

We had a lovely dinner here. The setting is beautiful with terrific views of fields and the Green Mountains. We shared the potato croquettes which were as good as anything I've had in Spain or Portugal (where I ordered them every chance I had). My wife had the Bouillabaisse and I had the pork steak. Both were excellent. Thawing list... More

My husband and I went and had an incredible dinner. I eat out often and have been to all the restaurants in the area and beyond. This really was a treat. The atmosphere was excellent, staff couldn't have been better and the food was excellent. We were also pleasantly surprised that our bill was reasonable for what we experienced.

In the Middlebury area there are limited options but a few very good ones. However having been to most of them Tourterelle continues to be my favorite. This is where I always take visitors, speakers at the College and friends. We have never been disappointed. The place aims for a French Country Inn environment and succeeds. It is a comfortable...
