We've always considered Cafe Shelburne to be a special occasion place. But over the years we experienced a significant decline in the quality of meals and service. With new owners we decided to give it another chance. The changes in decor were long over due and definitely contributed to a much more appealing ambiance. Our server was very professional and...

Enjoyed a wonderful birthday meal, which could not have been better. New chefs have got it down. Classic French cuisine served with real hospitality. Outstanding!

Very intimate setting, good for small groups and couples. Good selection of wine and tasty appetizers. The service was attentive but not smothering. We did not feel rushed and enjoyed a good diner.

I have dined at this restaurant a number of times and never been disappointed. Cafe Shelburne is family owned, so refreshingly distinctive and the food is excellent. On my most recent visit the cod was superb and the creme brûlée matches any I have ever sampled!

Imaginative menu thoughtfully prepared by a real professional. This is a very nice restaurant, do yourself a favour and eat here, you won't regret it

We have gone to Café Shelburne many times and loved it. Tonight I did not like the squash ravioli as a special. Boring. My husband's and son's filet mignon were way overcooked, even beyond one asking for medium and the other asking for medium well. My rack of lamb was delicious, although not a generous portion.

This is a reliable place when you want a rich, traditional French dinner. Rich sauces, excellent entrees - a great place to propose!! (as I did).

We were delighted with our meal at Cafe Shelburne. The room was lovely--country French. Reception and service very pleasant and accommodating. Delicious, updated French food, attractively presented. Enjoyed endive salad, quails with spaetzel, and desserts: apple tarte and floating island.

This is a special restaurant for us and in 5 years have never had anything but great meals. Go hungry because you don't want to miss the appetizers or the dessert! Someone in our family always has to try the specials and they always creative and wonderful. We don't live in Vermont but when our son went to UVM we... More
