We really liked this hidden gem.

Yes I am a fan and will come back to try again. We went with 7 folks after seeing the new Star wars film. We were all in a great mood and had never been before. The restaurant is tucked away and somewhat hard to find but once you know where it is no problems. It is also divided into... read more

It's a bit hard to find (look behind Quiznos/Dunkin Donuts), but it's worth looking for. Very good food (the specials were particularly good the night we were there) and quiet, professional service. They have a good selection of salads, entrees, and lighter dishes.

Wanted some lighter fare and a nice glass of wine today so decided to try Wooden Spoon. The carrot soup with lemon cream as excellent ... A little spicy which I really enjoyed ... And the warm spinach salad was fantastic. Service was quick and attentive and atmosphere was great. Highly recommend.

Tucked away off a nondescript main road through South Burlington, this restaurant is a real gem. We found it on Trip Advisor and went since it was walking distance from our hotel. The place is small and intimate and there seemed to be small and large groups using it as a get together. Food was very good and the service... More

There are so many restaurants in this town that we don't go to the same one too often. However there are people who are loyal to a few restaurants and this restaurant has its followers.

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 Street... 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
