A short drive South from Vermont's capital, we discovered an unspoiled village on a small lake surrounded by hills among welcoming people. On this site we chose to create our home and restaurant. We see it as a haven where you will be welcomed warmly and offered fine and imaginative food along with carefully chosen wines in a romantic and comfortable environment. We are confident that you will feel the love and pride that go into our restaurant, and everything we do. Our one goal is to provide food and wine of the highest quality to the people of Central Vermont and beyond. This is accomplished with a steadfast commitment to using the best available local and regional ingredients. Come meet us, our two boys Simon and Noah, our wonderful staff, and our amazing Catahoula dog, Bailey. Several visits to most restaurants may leave you uninspired to return, but each visit to Ariel's causes most people to begin enthusiastically planning their next trip.
