We enjoyed a most amazing dinner tonight at the very cozy, warm, and intimate dining experiences at Cafe Shelburne. We began with romantic and delicious drinks at the bar. Superb! Our choice for appetizers we highly recommend, House Charcuterie- a generous platter of pate, sweet sausage, and Crispy bread with garnishes of green beans and caramelized veggies. My choice for...

Graduation weekend can be difficult. Reservations are made weeks, sometimes months in advance. It is important to mention to customers that there will be a fixed price menu when reservations are made. Then you need to have all those choices available for the diners.

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!

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).
