Came to try the December/ January tasting menu. I had the scallop appetizer, Alaskan black cod main, and porcini mushroom dessert. Everything was decadent and perfectly cooked. One server (a blonde lady) didn't quite 'fit'. She had much difficulty explaining the menu and describing the dishes when they arrived. I think she described my dessert as being made with "lots...

If you want to have a special meal to celebrate, look no further. Matteo greeted us at the door ( owner and chef ). He enquired about food preferences and the 7 courses with exquisite wine parings began. The wines were perfectly pared - surprised us both. The food was better than excellent. The staff were extremely attentive but not... More

Highlight was the seared foi gras paired with a lovely Sauternes and surprisingly the braised Octopus.Chef Matteo even came out to make sure... More

For years, we have been going to the Blacktree for my birthday dinner treat and this year was no exception. It would be the first time going there since Chef Matteo changed the format to only serving a fixed priced 6 course tastings menu with a few choice options within it. We paid the added cost to include the foie... More

We had a great meal here with friends (6 of us in all) and had a good experience. Some of the menu choices (which change regularly) were pretty oddball, which will appeal to adventurous eaters. But there's standard fare as well. Nice wine list. Chef came out to talk to us. Pricey though.

We recently celebrated at the Blacktree. What a gem of a restaurant hidden away in the corner of the mall. The service was excellent, the food fantastic all in a very intimate setting. Truly a night to remember !!

I truly can't say enough about this fabulous restaurant in burlington. In fact, I tell everyone about our little gem of a spot because I feel like when something is THIS good it needs to be talked about. The food at Blacktree is out of this world and the chef, Matteo, can only be described as a culinary genius. We... More

This restaurant is unlike any in Burlington, the food and service are top notch. Our server was very knowledgeable. She explained every detail of each delicious and artful plate that was put in front of us. We enjoyed every minute of our relaxing 4 hour journey through this amazing dining experience! We're new to the area and so glad we... More

My wife and I recently ate at Blacktree and the experience was nothing short of outstanding. They have a tasting menu that changes regularly (currently 6 courses for $80) of which 4 courses are set and you can select from 2 choices offered for the appetizer and the main courses. There is also a 7th course of foie gras available... More
