I ate lunch here. It was nice, but a bit expensive. Service was great though and the waitstaff was very attentive.

Was here for lunch recently. The bartender was very friendly and attentive. They had a few different beers on tap, including a porter for those who don't chew on their drinks. I ordered the Reuben sandwich, and it was fantastic for two reasons: first, it was well prepared from quality ingredients, but for another, they use pastrami instead of corned... More

We ate here the first night of our 3-night stay at the Equinox, and found the experience to be less enjoyable than what the prices led us to expect. I had the Beet Salad and found it to be one of the oddest presentations I've ever seen. The square plate was laid out with about 8 slices of various types... More

The wait staff is delightful, and the food was quite good. We enjoyed our Christmas dinner there. Will be back!

Nice ambiance with fireplace. Good choices with food....a bit too salty. I had a kale salad which I liked and burger (bit overdone). Onion soup was ok....pumpkin risotto very good. So, net/net....good and convenient if you're in hotel! Prices a bit high for what you got.

We chose to stay in and eat at the hotel. The service was good, the menu fine, a bit pricey as expected. I ordered the french onion soup, which was good and the fried clams, that were over cooked and rubbery. My daughters burger was good and my husband had a veal chop that was a huge portion and delicious.... More

While staying at The Reluctant Panther down the street ( look for that review elsewhere) , we walked up to the Eqinox for a couple of afternoon drinks on the patio. ( that review is also on line).

The historic Marsh Tavern was the first building erected on the site of what is today the expansive Equinox resort. One of the first lodging houses in Vermont, its history predates the Revolutionary War. Today it is home to a celebrated restaurant and meeting place. Renowned for its hearty New England fare, patrons can enjoy a delicious lunch and the finest regional dinner cuisine. And for good fun, spend a while in the Tavern Lounge for cocktails, a tasty menu and outdoor seating for wine and spirits. Open daily.
