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.

The food is always delicious. The servers and staff are friendly and knowledgable but the service sometimes ebbs and flows. The specialty cocktails are always a treat and well created. We will return again and again.

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!

I loved everything about this place; food, service, ambiance. The ONLY complaint I have is how hot it was in the room with the fireplace. Way, way too hot. It made the evening uncomfortable.

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.

Starry Night is without question the best restaurant in the Burlington area (less than a 1/2 hour south of Burlington). It is one of the top restaurants in New England. Chef Josh Krechel is awesome, pairing subtle flavors with local and organic ingredients. The service, led by Manager Amanda Seubert, is impeccable appropriately attentive, welcoming and very accommodating to all needs. Excellent wine list along with craft beer selection and a full bar always including handcrafted seasonal cocktails. I have never had anything less than a terrific dinner always enjoying the local bounty of fresh ingredients. Definitely worth a trip to this exquisite little gem.

The food was good. However, the service was particularly bad. Our server did not check on us at all after the food runner brought our dinner. We were looking to order drinks, water etc - didn't see her until we were done with our dinner for a while. Based on this, we probably won't return - even though we live pretty close.

The beet salad was amazing and the octopus app. was shockingly tender and so flavorful. The service was outstanding. When we go out to eat, nothing is more frustrating then feeling as though you could have done a better job yourself...that was not the case here. Fantastic!

I had a lovely dinner with my son in the room with the fireplace. Our dinner was excellent and the service very good. Next to us was a couple on a date and a table full of people clearly having a nice family celebration. From what I could tell all three different parties were having a lovely meal together.
