Had a farewell dinner here at the end of August. It was excellent. I will miss this restaurant. Their wine bar Vin, to doors over, will remain open and is a great place to settle in for a bottle or a glass and some snacks.

Italian and continental entrees in a relaxed white-tablecloth setting. This has become a go-to place for a special meal. Great bar.

Start with squash blossom fritters, move to the main course of lobster with asparagus on top of a risotto cake, then topping the meal off with an apple crostata. One of the finest meals I've had. Can't wait to explore more of their menu!

The cream in the bolognese and the butter in both the seabass and lobster dish were heavy handed. The dishes lacked depth of flavor and balance. The grilled calamari was very good. The bread was dissappointing. Too airy. Overall nice experience. But I question the palate not the technique of the chef.

This establishment is superb, both in service and food.We have never experienced such quality outside of France.The menu is honest, using only the freshest of ingredients, simply served, and truly sublime.The Chilean Sea Bass with a potato crust and a buerre blanc sauce was exquisite in its simplicity, and so fresh.The moules and the zucchini flowers likewise, although the latter...

Service, food atmosphere were all exceptional. Especially on a very busy graduation and prom weekend. This is an upscale place with an emphasis on Italian but with a very versatile menu. We had the squash blossoms for an app, yummy. I had the quail and it was fantastic! The wines are expensive but very good selection. Great celebration type place.

Went there as a part of Vermont Restaurant Week but didn't have the special menu. The food was good, but not on a par with other top restaurants in the Burlington area. Sent back two bottles of bad wine. My potato encrusted sea bass was good, but not spectacular. ambience and service were OK, but not outstanding. There are better... More

We do not get to Burlington often, but have known that we wanted to eat at L'amante on our next visit. We were not disappointed. The décor is straightforward and free of the bric-a-brac that shouts out, "You are in an Italian restaurant". It is all about the food, and the food is very good. I know it is not... More

Lovely evening here. The place is nicely done -- elegant but in discrete way so you can relax. Server was very knowledgeable about all the foods and wines and enjoyed discussing options -- good for foodies. We had some good dishes including a shared steak that was outstanding and fried zucchini blossoms (the goat cheese was barely noticeable which I... More
