Last night we celebrated a 90th birthday party at the Downtown Bistro and Grill and as always, it was a fantastic night! The restaurant was full yet the service by Brian was second to none. Our party of 8 all raved about the food - short ribs, whisky soaked salmon, filet mignon, risotto and even a hamburger were all delicious.... More

We don't dine out as often as we used to When we do we have high expectations and want something outside the plethora of conglomerate chains in Burlington. So when my husband and I needed a place to take some out of town friends we finally acted on our daughter's recommendation for the Bistro. Everything was perfect from the cozy... More

I came here for lunch on a Friday and I was so satisfied with everything!! We got a spot in the patio which was lovely. As a vegan, they were able to accommodate my needs without a problem. Food is made fresh in-house and I got this amazing tomato/pepper/zucchini soup as well as a pesto flatbread without cheese. The flatbread... More

We organized my Mother's Interment Luncheon with Mike and his amazing staff at Downtown Bistro this past Saturday, August 9th. Being Croatian it is very difficult for any restaurant owner to understand the foods and delicacies of our culture in the downtown Burlington area. Mike, owner, has always showed me great hospitality with food, service, kindness and respect whenever I... More

Food was excellent, and the service was great! Also, the patio is excellent and the location is right downtown in Burlington. I enjoyed the entire experience, and would highly recommend this place to anyone I know that is looking for fresh delicious food with family or friends.

We went here for a belated Fathers Day dinner. My in-laws, husband and I. Service was good, the menu looked delicious. The food once served, did not meet standards and frankly overpriced for the meal which was served. Starters: DH and I had the crab cakes to start. They were nice, I enjoyed them. My MIL had the buds and... More

My daughter and I ate at this Bistro in May 2014. At the recommendation of the waiter I ordered the curried chicken and coconut soup and it was gorgeous. A decent sized dish and plenty of fresh bread to go with it. Also had a lovely smoked chicken cesar salad which was great too.

Nothing out of the ordinary. Decent food, average service. Nice patio which is great if you just want to sit outside and enjoy the sun! So many great restaurants in Burlington, you really have to up your game.

We love everything about the Bistro - waiters, food, wine... As busy parents, we do not go out often, but when we do - about twice a month, we would always pick the Bistro, as the food is so delightful, and delicious, that there is no way we could go somewhere else ( we tried most of the recommended restaurants)....

Our office hosted our 2013 Xmas party at Downtown Bistro & Grill, and it was fantastic. Pardon the tardiness of this review, but I simply haven't a moment to do so until now. Although late, I was determined to find time to write a review for this gem of a restaurant. It left such a great impression upon me and... More
