We have had three dinners here and they have all been wonderful. Excellent food, in season and prepared skillfully. The veal scallopini was quite different than I am used to, but it was great. The wine list is good and does not break the bank....More

We got in late, so we didn't want to go far. Fortunately, this restaurant was well-rated for Middlebury, and it lived up to expectations. I had a filet, and others had lobster and veil. We also had a nice cheese plate. All the food was...More

We had the mushroom puff pastry and gnocchi. Dessert was outstanding. Service was perfect and the entire meal was far below the cost at any big town. Drinks were perfect.

The dining room is small and in the days that this was a residence, might have been the parlor or formal dining room, complete with fire place. There is an adjacent room (the library) that can seat a moderate sized party. There is a separate...More

A meal at Jessica's Restaurant is always memorable. The recently updated dining room is a reflection of the casual comfort and style of this New England country inn. Jessica's Restaurant is located in the Swift House Inn in Middlebury, Vermont. Jessica's is just two blocks from downtown Middlebury, set in an 1814 stately home, surrounded by beautiful lawns and gardens. Jessica's casual atmosphere is the perfect place for an dinner for two, or a celebratory dinner for four to forty! Come early and enjoy our bar; Tom, with his more than 30 years of bartending experience, can fix you a cocktail or help you choose the right bottle of wine. We have won the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for our wine list for six straight years! We also have local beers on tap including Switchback, from Southern Vermont; and two brews from Middlebury, Wolaver's Organic India Pale Ale and Otter Creek Seasona.
