My family and I were at The Lord Nelson this past Saturday for a 5:30 pm reservation for a small dinner party of 6. I have had many dinners at their place including some business meetings so I am very much aware of your service and food standards and quality. I have a few things to note. I was trying... More

I love this restaurant. My parents used to take me here as a kid now I take my wife and child here. Its hands down the best fine dining in Burlington. Classic french/steak/seafood restaurant.

Our friends took us here as we were visiting from the USA, what a remarkable place! Impeccable service and quality, The food was some of the best we've enjoyed. Our waiter/server selected a red wine for us and it was amazing! So much so I'm looking to find it local where we live. This was a fantastic dining experience. Far... More

My group was warmly greeted when we arrived & the wait staff was very attentive. We were all very pleased with our menu choices. I went with the Lord Nelson special (2 beef tenderloin tournedos, with green beans, carrots & 2 tiger shrimp) which was one of the best dinners I have ever had! The peach raspberry cake I had...

This restaurant has a very exclusive atmosphere. Something that is hard to find these days. I was very impressed. Our server was very friendly and accommodating. None in our party were wowed by the food though. Personally I have a hard time paying $55. or more for a steak and having to pay for a baked potato, additional sides maybe... More

This restaurant is a Burlington standard for steak and seafood. The atmosphere is formal but warm and the service is what you expect from fine dining. I have been there several times and have always been pleased. I love both steak and seafood, so any combination pleases me. For some special night, I will return.

Been here a few times over the years. I know the price point is on the high side but noticed the Rib Steak has gone down in size but jumped up in price. Oh and the charge you for sides now $4 for a bake potato. Service was friendly but he had a strong smell of cigarettes which kind of... More

The Lord Nelson does not look like much from the outside. Once you are in, it is a different story. Even it is very open, it has still a very nice atmosphere. The appetizer were delicious, I had a humongous shrimp cocktail, the shrimps were like lobster tails and my better half had calamaris, also very good. For the main,... More

Amazing food. The cost is no more than you would spend at any steakhouse. A quiet atmosphere. Make reservations because there is limited seating available.

They have nice private rooms. We were a group of 17. Everyone loved their meal. Service was exceptional. Great place for fine dining. Kids had fun watching Caesar prep at the table.
