There is some kind of scam going on in VT where every md is telling their patients that they are gluten intolerant. Well that’s too bad because this place has the best Parker House dinner rolls you will ever have in your life. Even better...More

Amazing dinner for two. Plates are very shareable and wine selection is top notch. The ambience was exactly what we were looking for from a Vermont getaway.

Be careful if making a phone reservation as trip advisor had the number for the other location as they have 2 locations. Food was good and they had an early bird oyster special. No off street parking.

They take reservations online. Small restaurant- minimum seating. Excellent food , drink and service, but expect to pay top dollar.

Others give this place rave reviews, but not me and several of my friends. Creative menu items for sure, but wayyyyy overpriced.

Great eclectic resturant downtown Burlington. Many choices of cheeses, beers, wines and spirits. Food is very good but a little on the expensive side. Good use of local farm products in their meals. Desserts are fabulous. Reservations are a MUST!

Yes. I believe so. The party next to me ordered a vegetarian plate and I overheard that they thoroughly enjoyed the meal.

I don't think so given that reservations are hard to come by. To be honest, I'm not sure
