Loved this place! Great food, atmosphere, and service. We wanted to eat outside, but there was a threat of sever thunderstorms, so we opted to eat inside. The host was nice enough to give us a table by the window. Vermont Cheeseboard and cocktails, followed by the short rib entree, and finished off with ricotta cheesecake - wow! Best Part: The storm was at its peak when we were leaving, and even though our hotel was only a 3 minute walk, we were worried about getting hit by lightning. The host offered to drive us home in his personal car - and he did! Now that's service above and beyond! Highly recommend.
A wonderful dining experience. Hadn't been there in many years was so pleased will definitely go back
We had an amazing dining experience at the Reluctant Panther!! The service and food were both excellent and above our expectations. We hope to return again soon!
Excellent overall experience as usual and great service!
Beautiful hotel, Food was excellent, Great service - highly recommended!
Best meal all around from start to finish I’ve had in years from a hotel restaurant. They can stand on their own! In a really cute Inn too.
Wonderful food, dining, experience. Highly recommend
Wonderful date night spot!
An exceptional meal. Very charming setting with flawlessly executed service of exceptionally well prepared food. Best pate I have had in several years. Deep wine selection although we were drinking by the glass. And by the glass choices were very satisfying. Looking forward to chance you return.
I’m the one who says.. “no dairy, gluten, sugar and I’m vegan.” It was zero problem for this caring staff who was happy to convey to the most thoughtful chef who produced the most delicious plates. We’ve been dining here for a few years and it’s always a treat. Calm and elegant environment. We do summer porch dinners and have spent NYE there as well.
Our Waiter Thomas was excellent! Food was delicious.
Absolutely lovely restaurant with delicious food. Enjoy coming here when in the area. Would highly reccommend.
Beautiful outdoor view of the pond with fountain in the background. Delicious start to finish (don’t miss the house made sorbet).
Excellent food and perfect wait staff. Unfortunately there was a very boisterous table of six nearby and the noise level was not pleasant. No fault of the restaurant and nothing they could do about it, but we felt as though we were shouting to each other all night.
Excellent server and dinner. Compliments to the chef! Rather loud table interfered with the ambiance. Great setting.
Fabulous food and beautiful setting. Service was friendly and informed.
Superb, as usual. Exquisite, inventive recipes, beautifully presented.
We enjoyed a wonderful evening with excellent service and even better food! Our server, Ruth, could not have been more helpful with the menu and taking such good care of us throughout the evening. The chef did a spectacular job from appetizers through desert. We will definitely be back!
Excellent food. Serving sizes not for those with the biggest appetites.
Guests from out of town who have never been to Manchester.
Our servers were very nice and the food was presented beautifully. Limited options for non-alcoholic beverages. I was not a fan of the Lobster Ravioli but my friend liked her steak and short ribs.
Very clean and quiet
Food is really good. Nice gardens and wait staff attentive.
Service was excellent. Special cold pea soup was good, lamb and hanger steak were both good. Nice wine by glass, although it was too warm. Desserts were not good. Carrot cake waffles were mushy and the semi fredo which came with it was too frozen solid to eat. The sorbets weren’t very good.
Food outstanding nice wine list and overlooking gardens
A graduation dinner
Delicious food, beautiful scenery & decor, outstanding service.
Great service! Delicious food!
Wonderful service and amazing dinner!
Food, service, atmosphere were all great. Definitely worth five stars. Looking forward to going back.
I absolutely love this restaurant. Whenever I have the opportunity to come up to Manchester this is a must do. There is no better restaurant here and frankly one of the best in New England. The service is quaint respectful and elegant. The food is new American, with a twist? The freshness is fantastic. I had the simple yet complex greens as a starter as the main act was the Lamb for me. One of the best I've ever had. Honestly was blown away; I expected a typical loin that is a bit heavy and "syrupy" as they can be over-sauced. This was perfect. The stuffing, the cool of it...awesome. This sounds like a fake review probably but believe me this isn't the post pandemic writing. I've been here before. It's just how good this place is. And a fantastic value!
Food- delicious- service exceptional- experience wonderful. The Reluctant Panther is a terrific restaurant in the middle of Manchester- walkable to The Equinox and The Taconic.
It was Great!
Pricey but worth it! Wonderful flavor surprises for all 4 of us! We had the chilled pea soup app., 4 different entrees and shared the homemade sorbet platter. All exquisite!
What a great evening we had. The food was sublime, the decor to die for. The entire experience from start to finish was awesome. We will definitely be back for another meal.
Wonderful food, wine, service and atmosphere…highly recommended!
Last night was my first dining experience since I left NYC March 2020 due to Covid. The Reluctant Panther didn’t disappoint and in my mind can give David Boulud stiff competition for an outstanding culinary experience. Bravo to the Chef and staff
Very pleasant dinner. Great service and excellent food.
Awesome service and food. A terrific experience
High end dining with a friendly vibe, food was fantastic and the staff were delightful. We will definitely be back!
