The most fabulous restaurant in Manchester Vermont - what a conundrum to have when you can’t decide between the 20 odd starters and mains! Cocktails were wonderful and Lauren’s Peppermint Mocha was quite divine if not horribly calorific. Recommend the 3 cheese French onion soup, the lobster risotto and the lobster pot pie! The Mango ile Flottante is a wet dream for the mouth . Very difficult to get a table - easier to sit at the bar as you can chat to the owner Melody - but worth the wait.

Our advice: "Just do it!" We were surprised to find this gem in Manchester. The Silver Fork has only 6 tables and serves perhaps 30 plates per night. The chef has a very impressive resume including international experience. The menu is surprisingly diverse reflecting the clerks US, Puerto Rican, and German experience. The small staff is fantastic and made it simply delightful. Save room for desert - everything is excellent. You need reservations well in advance unless you are lucky enough to have a cancellation.

Other than you need reservations could be for a week or so, well worth the waiting. The menu is never boring and eveything cooked to perfection. Service excellent. A very friendly restaurant. We go there on special ocassions and look forward to another special ocassion. Our friends were very impressed with the extensive menu.

We were so lucky to get a table when the manager at the Palmer Guest House called to make reservations for us. A couple had just cancelled so were were fortunate to fill their slot. WOW, I can see why this place is booked. The food is a delicious mix of Maryland shore seafood, Caribbean tastes, & Austrian schnitzels. Even the cocktails are stellar. Our waiter recommended the warm mojito & it was a perfect sip on a cold November night. Save room for dessert. The bread pudding was worth every calorie. With only 6 tables & 6 seats at the bar, which were filled with diners, it's easy to see why the place is never empty. A real treasure of fine dining & atmosphere.

This is a beautiful small cozy restaurant on Main with an extensive menu. The chef has a real challenge in view of all the food options. I was impressed with the friendly staff and waiter. The wine selection is international and allows for by the glass with any bottle on the menu which is a nice touch. The prices where surprisingly reasonable. But at this restaurant it is all about the wonderful food and the presentation. The New England clam chowder with fried clams was a great way to start this meal. The goat cheese soufflé with fig jam and Melba toast was delicious. It’s salty and sweet and yummy. The entrees included a Maryland crabcake with tarter sauce very thin crispy fries. This is the real deal with all crab and great tarter sauce. The cod stuffed with crab served with mash potatoes was on point. Salmon strudel was beautiful in presentation with salmon wrapped in spinach and filo but fell short on flavor. The salmon had a poached texture and was served with potato mash and vegetables with drizzled butter. If I had a do over I would order the Pecan and Maple glazed duck breast. Dessert was a Gran Marnier Swan with ice cream over a warm chocolate ganache. This is a must if you desire fine dining in the small picturesque city. It’s a dining experience that is James Beard in quality.
