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!
Beautiful place, great service, creative menu. definitely upscale, and lives up to it.
4 delicious dinners at our table - short ribs were excellent - pork chop delish and cooked perfectly - risotto yum - chicken dish great - service top notch - all fresh tasty ingredients - will definitely be back - lucky for us our usual go to restaurants were closed on a Tuesday night :)
Fantastic food and presentation. The service was great. Very impressed.
Lovely people. Delicious food. Interesting menu. Highly recommend.
A respite from the ordinary restaurants. Perfectly prepared cuisine, elegant surroundings and portions just right so we left very satisfied. Highly recommend.
Lovely old established inn/restaurant with a lovely selection of tasty dishes. Perfect amount to feel full but not stuffed. Extensive bar selection. Enjoyed it.
Server Tom was excellent tried to accommodate our needs as vegan. Unfortunately, vegan options are very limited. But overall, place was very good.
Everything was fantastic I will definitely go back to the reluctant panther for dinner my wife and I loved our meals
trhe menu was fine I am vegan and had good vegan choices
As usual one of the best meals in Manchester Village, VT.
Great food experience. And great wine list. Never disappoints. Always on our list when visiting Manchester!
The lobster brie fondue appetizer was exquisite. The short ribs were delicious as usual. Finally the Arctic char was beautifully prepared with a crab-based crust. The sides were well-prepared and nice accompaniments to the entrees. Finally, complimentary ice cream treats were served after dinner. As usual, it was a wonderful experience.
Food was cooked perfectly. Arctic char had the best sear on the skin I've ever had. Flavors are straightforward, but blended and executed well. Nothing overly complex or exotic here. The space was also comfortable, with a simple elegance. Sitting next to one of the fireplaces in the winter is lovely. I'm so often cold at restaurants.
Service was impeccable. Food was delicious. Can’t wait to return
Such a fantastic meal! Really delicious and creative menu. Living in New York City, I haven’t eaten in a restaurant in quite some time, but I can still say that that was one of the best meals I’ve had in a long time. The service was excellent and highly recommend the little table in the nook with its own fireplace.
We stayed there as we have a hundred times before and love the Inn and the restaurant
Dinner was excellent as was the service. We love the Reluctant Panther. Howard and Lynne Shaw
Wish they used the fire places
As usual the chef never disappoints! She always find new tastes that marries tradition and innovation. Bravo!
