    After hearing about Hen of the Wood all year, I finally got a chance to go. The coolest part about this place is the setting, the dining room is a gorgeous old building overlooking a stream with a rustic atmosphere yet upscale atmosphere. That paired with seasonal food and impeccable service makes for a truly special experience. The food is good, but not life changing. My steak was a little undercooked and under seasoned, the beets were very average as well. Stick with the small plates, and you should be good. The maple tart I had for desert was perhaps the single most memorable desert I have had in recent memory. Truly delicious!

    Amazing, cozy spot with an excellent menu. Great choice for date night or special occasion. My one wish is that a more unique side came with the steak. Would 100% come back during our next stay in VT.

    Beautiful space with a lovely daily menu. However the wait staff service didn’t give the touch that I expected for this price point. I enjoyed the skate cheeks and dessert, we chose the simple sorbet option. For the entree I was disappointed that the only vegetarian option was pasta. I had hoped for an original mushroom based dish or something ‘veggie creative.’

    Finally able to get a reservation here, and we've been building up the hype about this place for years, so expectations were sky high. Candlelit and somber decor, super friendly staff. I can't believe the amount of food that tiny open kitchen can dish out. The food was amazing. Homemade coppa, hen of the wood mushrooms, and the best, most tender duck breast I ever had. It tasted like foie gras and it was heavenly. The chittara pasta with ramps was great too. I love that we didn't feel rushed to flip the table. Nice wine list too. Simply the best table in Vermont.

    Wonderful duck and flank steak. The short rib tortellini, kale salad, and mushroom starter were delicious. Cheese and desserts were superb. Service was great. Highly recommended. (Waterbury location)
