Nice Find

I go to Burlington at least once a month and am always looking for a good place to eat. Wooden Spoon was exactly that! It is located close to the Doubletree, La Quinta and all the other hotels close to UVM. That was important to me because sometimes I just don't want to make the trek down to Church... read more

If not there on Sun/Mon night for the burger/beer special or don't want a burger, be prepared to spend some money. The food is very well prepared and the portions generous. Salads are $10ish, other entrees like steak, scallops, short rib $23-25+. The burger is $12 (Tues-Sat).The good cut of steak was tender and cooked as ordered. The short rib... More

We went in on a very cold Friday night. Unfortunately we had to sit in the bar area given the regular dining area was just too cold. But the bar was cozy and the bartender, who was our server, was fantastic. We did make a reservation and are glad we did. It was a busy place. I ordered the special... More

What a great little place! The owners have it down. The staff makes the place. Well, the food is pretty darn good too. Very reasonably priced for the high quality you receive. They change up the menu from time to time to keep it interesting. And they run daily specials which are always terrific. Highly recommended for anyone not wishing... More

Two couples, we had four separate dishes. All agreed that the food was excellent. Standouts were warm spinach salad and a swordfish special. All agreed that the food was delicious, service professional and the prices a bit steep. But for the prices I would have rated this restaurant as excellent. If used to parting with over $100 for dinner for... More

The atmosphere is dim and noisy. The food, while good, was very overpriced, as are there drinks. The service was mediocre, at best. The waitress was more concerned with brown nosing than actually serving our table. All in all, for what the price is, go to The Guild Steakhouse. More selection, better food, better drinks and better service than here.
