Perfect meal, spectacular night on the porch, friendly and unpretentious waitstaff who are completely professional. Lived in Burlington a long time, and I like a lot of restaurants but Starry Night is at the top of the list!

Everything was good, but I especially appreciated the server being straight with me about size of portions so I could order what I could eat and not too much. Save room for desserts which not only will wow you with presentation but also flavor. Worth a trip I.

Scallop appetizer was amazing and asparagus salad was delicious. Pork entree missed the mark. Very chewy. Chicken entree was good. Good service. Delicious cocktail.

This place is amazing. It is a little bit of a drive from Burlington, VT, but so worth it. It is picturesque place surrounded by hills, a lake, gorgeous gardens and skies that you can see for ever. The inside of the restaurant is warm, rustic and has that cabin like feel that surrounds you with comfort. The small touches of having a fresh flowers at the table, a welcoming bar at the entrance, the feel of home and the beautiful smell of gardenias in the bathroom is just so heart warming.

I brought my best friend from Austin, TX to dine there while I live in Montreal. This place, its ambiance and the food really made our night. Our server was the best and so sweet. She was knowledgeable and ensured that my requests were met in terms of vegetarian selections and how I wanted to pay the bill. I can't wait to bring more people to this establishment.

It felt like having a meal in the middle of a gorgeous Van Gogh painting! Highly recommend and you must visit this place if you are in Middlebury or Burlington.

Our evening at starry night was lovely in every way. The food was outstanding and it was served with excellent timing - not too rushed. All of the servers were knowledgeable, friendly and effervescent. I truly appreciate the effort that the staff made to accommodate my request for a table on the patio.

As a person who has always been passionate about food and love going out to eat, I've never had such an amazing dining experience in my entire life. We were treated like family as soon as we walked in the door. The ambiance and vibes are so relaxing, absolutely gorgeous decor that has such attention to detail the interior design kept me feeling as if I was dining in a Van Gogh masterpiece. The staff was so inviting and knowlegable. You can tell they have a passionate team of good people. The food though... had the quality of what I would expect going to a Michelin star restaurant. The overall experience was mind blowing. This place really knows how to turn a dining experience into a masterpiece and the name fits the restaurant very well.

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!
