Sit in the bar area and Tim will be on top of everything. Menu changes often enough and good specials, which makes us look forward to returning. I had the scallops which were cooked perfectly, asparagus a little cool. Family style seating with a separate bar area.

This was our second time at this restaurant. Very clean eating! The menu isn't extensive but there's something for everyone. We ordered from the small plates and shared. Nicely decorated and clean restaurant. We showed up 15 minutes before they closed and they were happy to serve us!

My husband and I have been a few times, we almost always order the scallops and mashed potatoes - they're just too good not to order. The apps and drinks we've ordered have all been very good as well. Ambiance is a little european, very nice but still comfortable. The entrance looks like there isn't even a business inside!

This unassuming gem is located off the main road heading south east away from the University campus. The staff are friendly and accommodating, offering up a twist to traditional cocktails using local Vermont distilled liquors that were "out of this world". My wife had a Cosmopolitan made with Vermont distilled honey vodka that she claims is now her favorite drink... More

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... 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
