  1. Birches is supposed to be very good, but I've read some not so good things about the place here: http://www.birchesonline.com/.
    I've heard good things about Cafe Gallery: http://www.cafegalleryburlington.com/.
    Blue Claw Seafood is very well regarded in the area: http://www.crabeatery.com/.
    For diners, you have Dolphin Diner: http://www.dolphindiner.com/.
    I've been to Casamari - it's pretty good, but I think it's hyped a bit: http://www.mycasamari.com/

    Hope this helps.

      There is nothing at all romantic about Blue Claw, but they do have great seafood.

      Cafe Gallery is very over rated in my opinion. Haven't tried Birches or Casamari. -mJ

    2. My sister and BIL went to Birches for VD and said it was absolutely the most horrendous meal and the worst experience they have ever had in a restaurant. They did say that they had good service and the interior was pretty. That's the only good thing they had to say. If you search the Mid-Atlantic board, you will see my review from 2 weeks ago. Cafe Gallery is truly mediocre, but with a great view. Frankly, I think you are sorely out of luck in Burlington. I don't know anything about Blue Claw or the diner mentioned above. I've been to Casamari, but cannot recommend it . I have heard from numerous people that a place called Amy's Omelettes is very good for breakfast. Sorry...
