Re: “Gaku Ramen

Visited for lunch last week. Ordered the tonkatsu ramen...was disappointed in the broth I expected a deep, rich pork broth, but found what I was served as shallow, and perhaps too miso-ie, my egg was overcooked and the chashu pork lacked flavor. Not what I was led to believe I'd find here.

Also, while they advertise as an ideal spot for a cheap meal, we had the cucumber salad, i Fiddlehead, a cup of tea and two ramens and the bill was $36. 'nuff said.

Re: “Archie's Grill

So I heard you own an Ice cream scoop place right next door. What is that place called again?

Re: “Red Square

No bar has been more welcome to musicians on a consistent level through all months of the year,including the middle of Febuary. Management handles in a professional manner, they take no crap from bad customers. I feel the bartenders for the most part are wonderful. First rate sound engineer and wonderful upgrades make this a perfect place to drink , meet and listen. You would miss it if wasn't here !

Re: “Sandy's Books & Bakery

Our home away from home. The best everything!!!!! Best soups, best bagels, best breakfast....if she served dinner we would be there for that too. The vibe in this funky, loving "community center" is warm compassionate and electric while being stimulating and soothing!!!! Sound impossible? Just visit, spend some time. Join in the conversation. There is always some sort of chatter or curl up with a latte and a good book. See you there.

Re: “Waterworks Food + Drink

Had a pleasant lunch the other day out on the deck. Service was attentive and prompt. I noticed the 2% surcharge for the back of the house which I have no problem with. I must say the french fries were outstanding!

Re: “Gaku Ramen

Great decor. Pork buns were delicious. Fish ramen bowl was good, but very, very salty and I love salt. I will give it another try, but was really hoping for a better balance of flavors.

Re: “Silver Palace

Not good: ordered Mandarin chicken and S&S pork, exactly the same bland dishes with tough and tasteless greasy meat and this is the last time I'm eating there

Re: “SideBar

Side Bar is everything I want in an upscale watering hole with a great atmosphere, relaxed and attentive Wait Staff, great sound venue, well thought out libations. Just a wonderful place to catch up with good friends or make some new ones...thanks for creating it!

Re: “¡Duino! (Duende)

Given all the great reviews I was disappointed. I ordered the falafel plate, what I received was a falafel inside a cold slightly musty tortilla wrap, no pita bread, which would have been culturally accurate. My dining partner also thought their tacos were musty. It was a Monday night so perhaps not the best night.
It is too bad because I love eclectic food. However, the atmosphere and decor is great.

I will watch the menu for specials, and might try it again based upon that.

Re: “The Daily Planet

My first time back in a few years and in just one meal it is back on my "go to" list! We went during Restaurant Week 2016 and I was the only one that went off the regular fare menu. I had the Bone Marrow Bread Pudding, the Roasted Red Beet "Osso Bucco" and concluded with the Chocolate Chip Cookie Sliders. Imaginative, delicious, cooked to perfection, etc. Incredible flavor profiles! My hat's off to the chef! Thank you Copey!

Re: “People’s United Bank (Montpelier)

I have been with Peoples United Bank for 5 years .The customer service in this bank has exceeded my expectations. Manager helped me get organized in a way that has helped me grow my business. I recommend that any young entrepreneur or start up to get signed up with their business banking services as it can be difficult for an artist/creative person to get organized. I also have an account here and I am very satisfied with this bank. Incidentally, if you are searching information about Peoples United Bank you can find it here http://www.usbankinginfo.com/bank/peoples-united-bank/

Re: “Lake Willoughby and Mt. Pisgah

I may be biased toward Lake Willoughby as I live in nearby Lyndonville. However, it truly is one of the most beautiful and peaceful lakes going. You can swim (yes it's cold, but not bad), hike, sit and read a book, paddle in a kayak or canoe and many other things. The view can't be beat and it makes for a wonderful break from the often hectic world we live in. Give it a chance - it is worth the drive.

Re: “Viet Thai

So glad Vietnam Restaurant has returned as Viet Thai. We had the crepes with tofu, Delicious! Vegetables are fresh and crisp and the cilantro is a great addition. Also loved the dressing served with the salad, light and refreshing. Service friendly, can't wait to return.

Re: “La Boca Wood Fired Pizzeria

We love La Boca! Talk about local ingredients... you can order any pizza on their menu gluten-free with a crust that is made right in Essex. They have definitely worked out any kinks there may have been from when they first opened up in 2014. Their staff is so accommodating and friendly. I can walk in on a busy weekend evening, order a takeout pizza or two, and they consistently have it ready to go in 15 minutes. We're picky and we LOVE this place! American Flatbread is one of our long-time favorites, and this place seriously gives it a run for its money. It's a good thing it's in the NNE!

Re: “Sabai Sabai Thai Cuisine

Some of the best hot food in Vermont. The medium pad kee mao is hot. The other dishes ordered hot are ... hot. Everything we've had there is yummy and the sushi is fresh and good. What's not to like?

Re: “P&H Truck Stop

So amazing we travel from Claremont to go there to eat because the food is amazing!!! The chocolate cream pie is off the charts. Would love a recipe to make it at home.

Re: “North Country Saloon

I simply can not explain how disappointed in the level of service I received from the owner after I was charged the same bill twice in one night. Clearly a simply mistake. Being told that there is nothing they could possibly do, as they would have to search through every receipt from that night, blew my mind. Never a hint of an apology during the explanation that I need to argue the charge with my credit card company. Understaffed and WELL BEYOND COMPACITY that night is just another reason I'll never go back or suggest to anyone.
