What a fun, hip, addition to the Burlington food scene. This Korean ribeye and fried chicken were to die for. They make great use of sauces and flavors. I love the eclectic menu. We had a great date night here

We arrived early and the place had already filled up. Seating is limited as the restaurant is quite small. There were no tables so we cozied up to the bar. We had their pork belly which was absolutely delicious along with the sea scallops which...were excellent. Still being quite hungry we ordered an amazing dessert that was an oversized pastry filled with chocolate and coffee for dessert. Highly recommend this place but remember to go early or late as the crush sets in around 7.More

“Incredible” is the best description of the food & service. We stumbled upon the restaurant after living here for decades. On a snowy January night it was jammed. Each dish was perfectly prepared & presented. The cocktails were equally as good. Leave room for dessert....Best pistachio ice cream ever & their version of a cream puff/donut is other worldly. Let the server help you plan your number of dishes as some small plates are bigger than others. Only 2 tables accommodate parties bigger than 4. Just go!More

We stopped in for a bite and a glass of wine. All we can say is wow! The food is fantastic! We picked five different dishes (tapas style food) and our taste buds were delighted. All I have to show are empty plates as we...left not a morsel behind. We chose the Brussels sprouts (these sprouts went to the top of our “best liked” sprouts list), the carrots, pork belly (yummm), short ribs (fantastic) and mussels. So many wonderful flavors and textures. This restaurant is definitely a gem.More

We had the most fabulous dinner in this sweet, cozy restuarant! The plates to share were still abundant, absolutely gorgeously prepared, and sooooo delicious. My only complaint is that I we don't live nearby! We'll be back there every chance we get.

Restaurant was recommended by a friend who lives in the area. We arrived around 6:30 on a Saturday night and were seated within 5 minutes. Very attentive staff; perfect amount of vigilance, not intrusive. At the helpful suggestion of our server, we ordered two veggies...and two entrees. These tasty dishes arrived in a well choreographed, timely manner... shrimp, followed by brussel sprouts, risotto and scallops. My only thought for improvement would be to sear the scallops on both sides.More

Went for lunch on a recommendation. It was unreal so I returned for lunch the next day. It was even better! This will be a regular stop when in Burlington. The food is unbelievably delicious, so much that I was sad when it was gone.

One of the most sumptuous shrimp plates I have ever tasted. Started with an affordable bottle of Pino and ordered 5 small appetizers and 5 main courses and the four of us shared every plate. Each item was thoughtfully presented and delicious. New fan of...Poco, Staff is happy and attentive. We ate inside because it was the only table available but they also have a fun patio out front. I highly recommend it!More

We went for a private party. All the dishes were served family style and all came from the current dinner menu. I was astounded at the quality, flavor and harmony in each dish. We had: the fingerling potatoes, the burrata, the shishito peppers, the green...beans, the crispy pork belly, fried chicken, ribeye cap, scallops, the crispy cod, panna cota and the peaches. I could go into detail on each and every dish and tell you about the exquisite detail that went into each dish and the absolute explosion of flavors - but I'd be typing all night! The balance of taste, texture and visual appeal was fantastic. If I had to pick a top three I'd say do not miss: the burrata - topped with balsamic pearls (think bubble tea pearls made from a balsamic reduction); the fried chicken (made sous vide in duck fat with herbs); the crispy pork belly with roasted plum and hot peppers. AND, both desserts were spectacular! The only restaurant in Burlington that has come close in recent years is Bistrot de Margot. Poco is an absolute gem and I cannot wait to go back!More
