The Vermont Experience at Tourterelle

Nestled between the Adirondack and Green Mountain ranges just outside of Middlebury, Vermont, Tourterelle's hilltop location bespeaks beauty. The elegant interior with rich hues of sage and brick compliments the food, alive with flavor, yet quiet in preparation, allowing the nuances of the local Vermont flavors to shine through.

Whether celebrating a wedding in the renovated, rustic barn on our countryside property, enjoying a three-course meal in one of our four dining rooms, or dropping by for a quick bite at the bar, the beauty of simplicity is our focus. Warm service, succulent dishes, and a cozy interior create the ultimate experience for locals and visitors alike.


Customers & Friends

Tourterelle is one of the area's very best restaurants. Christine, co-owner with her husband, the chef, is gracious and knowledgeable. The food is thoughtfully and carefully prepared using the best of our local ingredients. You will enjoy the food, hospitality and ambiance!


If you are in the mood for a lovely French dinner, visit Tourterelle. It was one of the best French meals that we have had since our return to the states. Each course was carefully prepared with fresh local ingredients. We can't wait to return. It's well worth the drive.


What a GREAT location to dine... Our dinners were superb and our wait staff was outstanding. This restaurant is a true French experience with lots of love and care. Treat yourself to a special place in the heart of Vermont.


My boyfriend and I wanted a special night out and Tourterelle certainly delivered! The restaurant's ambiance and menu is totally different than anything else in Addison County. I definitely recommend the crepes and salad. I can't wait to go back and try other things on the menu. The service was excellent and I appreciated that co-owner Christine stopped by our table to make sure we were enjoying the food.

The restaurant came highly recommended and did not disappoint. Rarely does an establishment give one a true dining experience, but Tourterelle manages to do so with an understated grace. The steak was delicious and the chef was not afraid to cook medium rare as medium rare instead of borderline medium, which is a guaranteed way to earn my respect.

The dinner we had last night at Tourterelle was fantastic! The restaurant is beautifully remodeled, the service was excellent, and the food was absolutely delicious. We had a wide variety of the menu at our table and everyone LOVED their meal. The escargot was a big highlight and the Tourterelle salad of arugula,pecans, artichokes, and cranberries was a beautiful start to the meal. I had the Bouillabaisse and would order it again in a heartbeat. I just wish I had more room to try to so many of the other dishes on the menu; it just means we will have to go back again- soon! The menu is very reasonably priced, Christine and Bill are very welcoming and warm and this is a gem of a restaurant that you should not miss.


We just returned from a spontaneous dinner at the new restaurant Tourterelle in New Haven (just north of Middlebury). As folks who often lament the lack of delicious, reasonably priced food in or close to Middlebury, we were ECSTATIC to discover this gem. From the pear salad appetizer to the last sip of coffee, we came away EXTREMELY satisfied. The duck melted in your mouth and the hamburger & frites was one of the best we've had (we've sampled many!) Love the waitstaff and atmosphere - elegant but not stuffy. The co-owner Christine was just delightful - she was genuine and warm. We can't wait to try brunch! Bon appetit!
