I am all about customer service and food. This restaurant exceeded our expectations. The food was to die for and the service was excellent. This is a go to restaurant when in Stowe and I am certain that it is the best!

The food was delicious- a fall driven menu with upscale comfort food - and really, the best meal we had in Stowe amongst many great meals. The restaurant is so cozy and beautifully decorated. Our waitress was friendly and gave great service.
However the manager/host was rude- we went on Halloween which is also my boyfriend’s birthday and were dressed up, received such a pretentious response, and were told our reservation was showing up as cancelled. I tried to show him my app with the confirmed reservation, but he didn’t even pretend to look, and said he could see what they could do. He quickly had our table switched out of the main dining room, I assume to hide us from the majority of guests.
Again, it was Halloween. We came from NYC with its share of pretentious restaurants, and even they welcome holiday celebrations... I think the manager needs to live a little and the restaurant should assimilate to the Stowe vibe we so enjoyed everywhere else.

The food was amazing. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Stowe. The atmosphere was nice, very cozy and sexy. However my boyfriend and I were seated at a couch and coffee table in the center of the room. While it was near a fireplace and very romantic, it was challenging to eat sitting this way. We also had 8:30 reservations and didn’t know that the kitchen stopped taking orders at 9 so we felt a bit rushed. But otherwise everything was wonderful! Get the venison tartare!!

I'm still thinking about the duck fat potatoes from my meal a few nights ago! The whole meal was fantastic from our fries brussels sprouts appetizer to our entrees (duck and ribeye) to the chocolate tart for dessert. My Manhattan was fabulous, the atmosphere and service were divine, and the prosecco to celebrate our anniversary was a lovely touch. One of the best meals we've ever had!

Always a great meal! The bar area, specifically, is our absolute favorite nook of the place so thrilled we could reserve it this past weekend. Our waiter, who's name escapes me at the moment, is really approachable and knowledgeable. We will be back soon!

We started out with a couple of salads. I had a grilled radicchio salad that was flawlessly put together and my wife had the kale salad which was equally well done. The fried Brussel sprouts were amazing. I had a perfectly cooked beef tenderloin with duck fat potatoes. The beef, sauce and potatoes blended together perfectly. If I hadn’t loaded up on the sprouts and two local IPAs from the Alchemist and Hillside Farms I would have ordered a second entree. My wife’s halibut was perfectly seasoned and cooked to perfection. The forbidden rice that it was served over had more of a savory chutney consistency than rice. Every detail was flawlessly executed. You feel like you’re in an episode of Newhart. Top 5 meal of all time.

We discovered this gem last year and always make a point to go while we are in town. It’s an hour trip when the notch is closed, but well worth the drive. The staff is very knowledgeable and very friendly. We love the managers, Peter and Robin! You won’t be disappointed with this experience. The bar downstairs is cozy and they have great cocktails as well!

Food was very good, I had the Halibut but the tables are on top of each other, really right on top of each other. I would not go back as I do not want to eat my dinner and have my conversation heard by strangers.

Brussell sprouts small dish was very large. I wish there was an appetizer serving half the size. They are very good, but I wasn’t hungry for my main course or dessert. The scallops were cooked perfectly.

Perfect gathering spot for a couples meal, a friends get together or just a perfect ending to a day on the snow with family (young adult). Fabulous wine list, fire burning, light fare or heavy meal depending on what you want, but everything on menu is thoughtfully crafted and presented.

The restaurant's ambiance, the chef's culinary masterpieces, and the staffs' attention to details were all remarkable. When I made my reservation I requested a table that provided a memorable experience and ambiance. Edson Hill delivered in spades as we dined by a romantic fireplace in a magnificently decorated for the holidays room.

Then there were the cocktails, wine, and food. The choices were plentiful enough to make it difficult to decide, but all wonderful so that you cannot go wrong. The cheese plate showcases Vermont's best. The duck breast and lamb shank were both the best we have ever experienced. And we have traveled and dined extensively throughout the world. Our server was extremely knowledgeable regarding the menu and attentive to our needs.

Every night for a week we sampled fine dinning in and around Stowe. Considering the restaurant's atmosphere, food/wine, and service our favorite has to be Edson Hill. Because our experience was so memorable we hope to both stay and dine at Edson Hill this summer. We thank and greatly appreciate the staff at Edson Hill.

An enchanting VT setting, whether starting with a cocktail in the cozy tavern or lounging in the living room by the fireplace as your table is readied. Great conversation with the bartenders downstairs as they discussed their cocktail creations, brought upstairs to a perfect table for 2. Though out of the entrée I had in mind, the Halibut was a fantastic second option, great wines and selection all around. Would return to explore more of the property + definitely for another meal!
