This restaurant is spectacular! Locally sourced food. Great bar area with amazing cocktails. The rabbit tagliatelle was superb as was the roast pork. Worth the wait!

What a gem in Burlington - exquisite food. Informed and helpful staff. We enjoyed our dinner at the bar watching the chef's at their station - professional and enjoyable to watch.

...they had run out of bread by the time we took up our table at 9:00 pm on U of Vermont graduation night. Even though the food was excellent, it has a lot of oil on the small plate menu and called out for carbs, which the bread would have provided. Otherwise good service and wines and pleasant surroundings. No excuse really, should have been a top grade.

There are only a handful of places that I truly look forward to eating at in downtown Burlington and this is one of them that stands at the top. We started out with oysters, the octopus, and several other small plates. The oysters were cold on ice as they should be with freshly shredded horseradish, cocktail sauce and mignonette on the side. The octopus was perfectly prepared and out of this world. The main courses were all excellent and we had a great selection of cheeses for dessert. The service was very good. Our only complaint (which really isn't their fault) is that the party before us at table they had reserved for us was taking their time leaving so we had to wait 45 minutes for the table to open up. No problem for us as we weren't in a rush and enjoyed having drinks in the lounge area. I'll definitely be back.

No more driving! There's an nearby spot that is superb. The food is great. The service is great. The atmosphere is contemporary and comfortable. The only that's missing is the waterfall.
