The Gleanery has become my "go to" restaurant, especially if I have friends visiting from away. Everything about The Gleanery, from the warm greeting by Liz and her staff, to the charming ambiance of the old Tavern Building to the truly delicious and creative meal offerings makes it, in my opinion, the best restaurant in Southern VT. The fact that... More

We have been to The Gleanery on several occasions when visiting our daughter and then fiancé after they had moved to Bellows Falls a year ago. I always intended to write a review but alas never did. In our 5 or 6 visits to the restaurant this past year we thoroughly enjoyed every dish we had. The menu is always... More

Dining at The Gleanery is a totally perfect Vermont experience. The historic tavern is warm and chic with a clean decor that offers comfort. Both a Sunday Brunch and an evening dinner are presented as a gift for the eye and, even better, a treat for the palate. Each course is original yet familiar in flavor, pleasing both the adventurous... More

We had a sublime lunch at this charming Colonial-era tavern seated under original 200+ year old beams and next to 3-foot wide, old-growth pine panels. What eye-candy, as was the cuisine. Our Eggplant-Tomato Bolognese Wrapped in House-Made Basil Pasta and it was to die-for. For dessert we had house-made Blueberry Ice Cream and Flourless Chocolate Cake with Candied Fennel-- a... More

It was late, about 8:30 PM, and we were looking for a place to eat when we came upon the Gleanery. It was a very pleasant surprise, a restaurant with a unique menu and farm to table goodness. They have both indoor an outdoor seating and a gift shop that contains locally made crafts. A meal with wine, appetizer, entrée... More

As a vegetarian only in town for one night, I decided to treat myself to the Gleanery, and I was not disappointed. Even the summer salad was special, as was the maple bourbon creme brulee. The chard gnocchi itself was a little bland, but the corn creme and arugula on it were amazing, and the novelty of the dish made... More

This used to be a restaurant of choice in Putney but no longer. Our recent visit was simply awful. Long wait for food and drinks. Wait staff with no knowledge of the menu. When finally delivered the food went to the wrong people. Even though we told our waiter the we had a curtain to meet the food arrived late... More

Gleanery, Manager at The Gleanery, responded to this review

Dear DarienDiner: I am sorry to hear that you were so dissapointed with your last visit. We have gone through some staffing changes recently and are trying to regroup. We do our best (EVERY day) to run a mission driven restaurant and stick to our guns philosophically, which makes for a LOT of behind the scenes challenges, on top of... More

Takes FOREVER for really dull food. The only plus is that is a "nice" restaurant in Putney. Bring your own drinks.

From the moment you walk in, you are greeted with a warm and welcoming vibe. The restaurant has a rustic elegance that is not easily achieved. Our server for the evening was Cory. Cory is friendly, enthusiastic and bubbly. She handled my- what must have seemed to her to be like 100 questions about a raspberry cheesecake, with grace and... More

A lovely place for an evening meal. Friendly servers who will happily explain all about the food, from how it's prepared to where the ingredients come from. A special place worth going out of your way to have a lovely dinner.
