Food is good but very heavy on the salt.
Please tone it down.
Great service
Pork Empanadas were tasty
Big portions

“Great food, but wear earplugs and forget about conversation”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2013

Strong pluses and minuses here. Four of us had dinner one night. The place was packed on a Saturday night, and the noise level throughout the evening was borderline deafening. Everybody had to shout to be heard, which just made things worse. The waitstaff was great, the menu was fantastic, and the food as delivered was delicious. But the noise ruined the experience for all of us. My ears were ringing by the end of the dinner. Go for the food, but plug your ears and avoid talking.

“Trying to hard to be fancy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2013

Very slow service. Nice atmosphere. Food was just not that great. Seemed to me they were trying too hard to be trendy, but they just fell short. East Burke is not Manhattan. Sometimes the basics are better. I can’t recommend this place sorry.

“Unbelievably Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2013

Exceptional! Great menu, wonderful service, and the food we ordered was simply delicious. My only complaint is that the noise level was beyond energetic. The noise level was due to this being a small dining space where most of the parties were of six people or more. My guess is that it was lots of large parties on a Saturday night due to the downhill ski crowd. I am a nordic skier. :-)

Anyway, I am guessing this was an exceptionally noisy night. I will go back the next time I am in East Burke, but on a weeknight. If this place was closer to home, I would have a serious problem with staying away from it. Again, what a wonderful find in the Northeast Kingdom. Oh yeh, it had a very nice reception and bar area as well.
