Took our Tuck Student for an amazing dinner. The cheese board, pork shank, and creme brûlée was outstanding. Wonderful service and atmosphere. We look forward to another future celebration.

I have been eating at Simon Piece for at least thirty years and have NEVER had a disappointing meal there. It is always my "go to" place when I want to entertain special guests or just have a lovely quiet meal.

Overlooking the Ottauquechee River waterfall, Simon Pearce offers elegant and, more importantly, delicious dining. The staff is helpful but no intrusive; the food was beyond good and changes with the season. Reservations are a must and should be made several weeks ahead.

We loved everything about this place; the setting, the rustic environment with a modern touch, the view and the food was divine. Also, the service was impeccable and the reception host was lovely. It's so far away from home but I want to go back!

I tend to doubt it. They seem to have a fairly extensive collection for you to enjoy in their Simon Pierce stemware. Alternatively get their food to go for a lovely picnic lunch with a scenic view nearby and then you can... More
