The food is pretty great, but a little bit overpriced. You should definitely try the meatballs, their signature dish. They also serve escargot, but it's not a big deal. Its texture is a little bit chewy, but at least the sauce on the side was very tasty.. You should definitely come on Mondays, when they have a jazz trio, but... More

This hidden gem offers the best dining experience in the Valley. Though the menu is small, the quality and quantity is extraordinary. Reservations are a must so you don't miss out.

While the land was getting a nice sugary foot of snow, I left my hostel in search of a nice meal. Peasant was recommended to me and I gave it a try. From the moment I entered, I felt that these people were serious about food. With three of four other tables braving out the storm, I sat at the... More

Enjoyed our dinner here. Went with my two girlfriends and all of our meals were terrific Make reservations,...place is small and quaint. During Summer and fall there is an out door patio area which is lovely to sit out on and have a cocktail while you wait or just want to relax. Will return for sure.

Dined with my fiance and four other friends on a cold October night. Peasant was warm and welcoming with garlic in the air. We were seated quickly (had reservations, luckily, as it filled up) and enjoyed a round of cocktails to start. We passed some apps around the table and the general consensus was the meatballs were hands down the... More

Peasant is my absolute favorite restaurant in Vermont. The food is phenomenal and you can't beat the cozy atmosphere. Every dish is fantastic but the the salmon and bolognese are out of this world! The staff is attentive, friendly and very knowledgeable. Highly recommend for families, friends or a nice night out!

After reading the rave reviews we expected more than what we had. The tomato bean soup was bland and did not have escarole but rather, bok choy. The house salad which was dark lettuce, was wilted and had little dressing. The beet salad was flat and the beets bitter. The majority of our meals were muted - the polenta was... More

I sat at the bar in an amazing restaurant. The service was great...... the Chef, came out to ask how the food was..... not gonna lie to him.... the food was absolutely delicious. You gotta love people who love to cook good food..... if you are looking, look no further..... Peasant is where it's at.

I love how the menu is so short, because you can tell that there was a lot of thought into every single dish. I recommend that you try the meatballs, not because they are something spectacular (they aren't), but because the other dishes are overrated and most have dissapointed me. I enjoyed the escargot, but would never try it again.... More
