I often recommend this little place to others, the quality of food you get for the prices is fantastic. If you're tired of going to the usual chain restaurants give this a try, to spend a little bit more but be able to enjoy the meal and take your time is great. It's a little bit quiet and close-quarters inside,... More

We love the Downtown Bistro & Grill. We had a special occasion dinner and wanted to try a Taste of Burlington menu. Hands down, we chose The DB’s menu over the others on-line. They always put a lot of care and thought into the Taste of Burlington menu, for both lunch and dinner. They don’t just shift something off their... More

We arrived on a cold windy Saturday just after twelve noon. It is an intimate and cozy little place on Elizabeth Street. A small patio is on the front porch and the door leads into a small reception area. The main restaurant is through a door to the right. Three people were already seated when we arrived. We ordered a... More

While we ventured into this delightful restaurant because of the Taste of Burlington menu, we will return again and again. Dinner out with my hubby and our 11 year-old Granddaughter was a HUGE success! We each chose a different appetizer, a different main course and a different dessert and shared them all. In all those taste experiences, not one of... More

I've eaten at this restaurant on many occasions and it never disappoints. It is a very quaint restaurant with an amazing menu. I would particularly recommend eating here during the Taste of Burlington as their menu is always the best in town. We also hosted a Christmas staff party here and the staff was fantastic to work with with the... More

We went as a table of 6 for a family birthday. Bread and butter was brought to the table to start and was replaced without request. Everything we ordered was really, very tasty. We ordered calamari, crab cakes, toast trio and mussels for appetizers. Steak frites, Caesar salad, lamb chops, blackened salmon, seafood linguine. Everything was fresh and delicious. Service...

I was looking for a place for dinner with a friend that I had not yet visited in downtown Burlington and stumbled across this one online "downtown restaurants of Burlington". Since the restaurant name includes "bistro", I almost skipped by, as bistro in my own mind is more of a sandwich place. Anyway I decided to review the menu. It... More
