The small town of Dorset in southern Vermont is home to Mio Bistro. The quaint restaurant feels warm and inviting with simple dŽcor in both the dining room and bar area. Mio Bistro's professional and friendly staff provides each guest with attentive service whether dining on light fare and drinks or a full dinner.
Owners Beverly and Leo pride themselves on being one of the only "green" restaurants in the area. Each meal is made to order with locally sourced, fresh ingredients. Light fare such as the lobster corn soup or wild shrimp and avocado salad are perfect to enjoy with a glass of wine at the bar. Mio Bistro's menu features such entrŽes as Thai red snapper, lamb shank and mushroom risotto. Customers who leave room for dessert can try treats such as pumpkin cheesecake or molten chocolate lava cake.
In my opinion the menu is not very exciting. There are also up-charges which are surprising with these prices.
The staff seemed to be struggling to keep up with the diners, although our server was a pro.
Have eaten here three times and never been disappointed. The mussels were exceptional this time. The chicken dish and the pork dish were both nicely done and cooked perfectly. Service was very good and not overbearing.
