Had the beef tenderloin while wife ate the gnocchi and both were great. Wine list was good compared to other Stowe area restaurants we visited but not a substantial selection.

We had a wonderful dinner at Michael”s. They made a house into a restaurant. The food was amazing and not expensive for such a good restaurant. The waitress knew everything about the menu choices. Everything was so fresh and prepared elegantly.

Michael's was outstanding for dinner. The entire staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Our server, Ricky, was extremely knowledgeable about the menu items and food preparation and very attentive during our visit.

This was not just a dinner, this was an experience. From the ambiance, to the staff, to the food, it was incredible! This is a short review, but that’s because you really have to try this place to know what it’s about. By far the...More

We'd been wanting to try this restaurant for a long time. We particularly liked the porch atmosphere, although the tables are a little bit close, but there is a nice view. The waitstaff doesn't rush you. We had the pear salad, the venison and the...More

Our family group happened to be in Waterbury at dinnertime, and selected Michael's because it offered some vegetarian options and good reviews. We were not disappointed. The Local Greens and Organic Garden salads were both delicious, and the pumpkin frites were really tasty. The only...More

I don't see why not. Stowe in general is very casual & family oriented. This is a special restaurant, enjoy!

Michael's on the Hill is located within a circa 1820 farmhouse, picturesquely set on a hill, with breathtaking views of the Green Mountains. The restaurant can comfortably seat 84 guests, and has a full bar with a piano lounge and outside porch available for dining. We boast a large enclosed wrap-around porch dining room (with a view from each table) and a beautifully renovated barn room where guests may dine in luxury, all the while being reminded of the history of the barn. Michael's on the Hill emits a sophisticated charm without the pretentious attitude so commonplace in a restaurant with fine food. We offer locally driven, innovative European cuisine and a welcoming, refined atmosphere. When it comes to elements as vital as flavor, taste and preparation, a great respect for the ingredients must exist. As we believe, a chef's ego should never outshine the true stars, the ingredients. Our dishes are innovative, flavorful and fresh, focusing on local ingredients, and created in a European style. The evening always turns Michael's on the Hill into a romantic, warm, and festive atmosphere for guests to enjoy dinner expertly created by Chef/Owner Michael Kloeti. All dinners start with a warm, linen-wrapped sourdough baguette, sweet butter, and a bowl of marinated olives. Whether sitting near the fire, or on our grapevine-surrounded porch, guests are enveloped in a pleasing comfort, while enjoying the piano and personalized attention. Come for a visit, and allow us to share conversation, hospitality and a bit of home.
