Simply one of the finest restaurants in Vermont. We eat very well at home and most restaurants don't reach our level, but Starry Night surpasses us with every bite. Highly recommended.

Overall the food was excellent. The lighting and the room itself were nothing to write home about, however. I much prefer the other room, which is more tasteful and better-lit, as I recall.

The Starry Night Cafe was as fantastic as usual. Attentive staff and great service, we even arrived a bit late and they were very gracious! The unique cocktails were great and the food was outstanding. Each of us had a different entree and each was phenomenal, prepared & presented superbly, and served at the same time (a small detail, but we could all start together...no awkward waiting!) We all shared one of the home-made desserts. Lastly, we had an infant with us and our server ensured our every need was met...in stride! Can't recommend this gem any higher! If you haven't gone...put it on the "must-visit" list today!

Beautiful atmosphere. Lovely dining room with large windows. The service was lovely. Not an extensive cocktail menu but there is something on there for everyone. Dinner was incredible! For an appetizer, I recommend the calamari for sure. I’ll be going back very soon!

The Starry Night is one of our favorite places for very special occasions. We brought our friends visiting from the Syracuse area and they loved it! The service was incredible and we commend our waitress Erin for being awesome in the face of one in our group being quite a challenge. Thank you!

Creative, delicious cocktails. Excellent, accessible wine list, and stellar food (including a thoughtful kids menu, for little ones that haven't yet learned to like steak tartare). One of our favorites.

Always a favorite of ours, this warm, welcoming, cozy, romantic get away was of course our first choice for Valentines Day. The service was stellar, as always, the food beautifully prepared, and we even allowed ourselves the gift of desert, which was mouth watering delicious. Thank you Starry Night!

Our meal was delicious. The service was great, but we experienced the dining room as uncomfortably cold (temperature wise). We were in the front room (bar) and had a draft coming in from the window we were sitting next to. We ate with our coats on which made it a little less than terrific.
We really love it at Starry Night, but I think we’ll come only in warm weather from now on.

We've been going to Starry Night Cafe for nearly 9 years and it never fails to please. It's exceptional - whether food or drink, casual dinner or special occasion. We've also made it a destination for New Years Eve dinner the past 6 years and have no plans to change.

Every aspect of the meal for our large party was wonderful. We asked each person, “what was the favorite food you put in your mouth?” The answers were the entrees— the lamb, the salmon, the Kerala... Salads, entrees, cocktails and desserts were appealing to all the senses.

We haven’t eaten at Starry Night in a long time and this time was just as special with our family. We enjoyed our appetizers, fried calamari and octopus plus a bisque. Harper made some wonderful cocktails with fresh ingredients and local liquors that went well with our meal. My stepfather had chicken, mother had a lamb that fell off the shank, my husband had a tender swordfish, and I enjoyed the special duck with couscous. We were all pleased with our choices, closing out the night with creme brûlée and Apple crisp.

Lovely place- big, warm fireplace. Outdoor seating on a beautiful terrace in warmer weather. Food is top notch- immaculate preparation and delicious. Great appetizers- loved the beef tartare with gourmet tater tots and Brie. My rack of lamb was outstanding, perfectly medium rare and tasty! Great fried oyster salad-7 nice oysters. Will always visit on our way back from Burlington.

This is a delightful restaurant. The big dining room is comfortable, the tables not too close together and the food is wonderful..
The steaks are cooked to perfection, as are the potatoes. I never thought I would taste a perfect potato - but I did at Starry Night.
The mixed drinks are great- the wine list is mostly by the bottle but the by the glass offerings are very good as well. Waitstaff very attentive and friendly. We were dining with a friend who is gluten intolerant, and the waitstaff knew each dish that should be acceptable/unacceptable for this issue. Brava!

We had a great dinner at Starry Night a few weeks post-wedding. The food was incredible, but we were seated in the bar area, which was pretty loud. I think in the other part of the restaurant it's a bit quieter and geared toward a more mellow ambiance, however, the meal and service was great and the Fableist Pinot Noir was amazing.
