Ate an anniversary dinner here. The atmosphere and service are definitely white table cloth. The menu had good variety on steaks and sides. It is definitely a great steakhouse. I had two problems. We both ordered surf and turf. The steak was a six oz...filet and it was perfect. It was served on a bed of mashed potatoes and topped with creamed spinach. It was a very nice presentation. The turf was a split lobster tail but it was difficult to get the meat out. The second problem was noise. There were several people at the bar and then later in the restaurant that had only one sound level - very loud. It reverberated throughout the small space. We complained to our waitress and the restaurant was apologetic and they made up with a free dessert and after dinner drink. Nice touch. Definitely worth a second try.More

My husband and I went here for our 25th Anniversary and it was immediately acknowledged by the hostess and our awesome waiter. We were seated in the back in our own little private area which was so special! We ordered the escargot and crab cake...for appetizers and both were delicious! We ordered the filet and flank steak for our entrees and i all of it was absolutely fantastic! We look forward to coming back on our next trip to Burlington.More

We had the crab cake appetizer, a surf and turf, and a boneless ribeye. Everything was delicious! Josh and Susie at the bar were very attentive. We had a great time!

We went last night for our anniversary and we were blown away. Started with the Maple Old-Fashioned from the bar... it was insane!! My wife had the wedge salad and the filet with lobster. I had the 24 oz porterhouse. I cannot begin to describe...how perfectly cooked everything was. We finished it off with the Mississippi Mud Pie. Best meal I've ever had in a restaurant, hands down. However, the best part of the night was our waitress Margo. What a delightful person she was. She was prompt, funny, very knowledgeable about the food, and she really made the whole evening wonderful. Make reservations and specifically ask for Margo, you wont be disappointed.More

Have had Filet Mignon in many restaurants all over the US, and this by far was the best! Also enjoyed the Maple Creme Brulee' and it was amazing! EB Strong is a bit pricey though, and would expect better ambiance for the $$$. Unfortunately, we...had a group of older men near us that were a bit crude in their humor and conversation which killed the mood a bit as my husband and I were having a belated Valentine dinner. Be aware that there are all kinds that dine here and you may need to move tables.More

Had a holiday meal with friends there a few weeks back. Setting is classic, white tile floors, long bar, comfy bench's and chairs. Had the Escargot which was heavenly and the Halibut Cioppino which tasted like it was from one of my favorite seafood restaurants...in Provincetown. Killer broth, the halibut was cooked to perfection and flaked apart. Perfect service from wait staff that were attentive but not over the top. One of Burlington's best.More

Went on my birthday with a nice gift certificate-I needed every bit of it and more. My expectation is that when you pay top dollar, you get top shelf. Our martini's at $13 were very good. We shared the $14 fried calamari appetizer. The amount...of calamari was generous but the breading seemed a little too much and they were a little tough. Calamari at Leunigs is much better. My wife had the Arctic char special at $30. It was fine. I had the boneless rib eye at $45. I asked for medium rare and it was spot on. I had the $8 tempura asparagus at the recommendation of our waitress. They were a big disappointment; they were very greasy. I should have sent them back. We shared an $8 creme brulee. It came out with a single candle(they could never fit the true number of candles). The creme brulee was excellent. Service by Amber was superior.She knew her stuff and was very pleasant to deal with. We had a booth so we were somewhat sheltered from the din of the other diners. The noise did detract from the experience. We greatly appreciated the free parking out back but it is a little weird coming in the back door; you have to make your way to the front of the restaurant to find the host person. All in all, a great place to come for a special occasion. Its pricey but that is par for other similar high end establishments in town.More

At the top of Church Street, is a small, hard to find restaurant that specializes in steaks. Couldn't be beat.
