I am a former chef and appreciate the dining experience from all its angles. We have driven past this place hundreds of times and never made it here. Finally, for our 35th wedding anniversary, it came up. Since moving to the Burlington area 6 years ago we have had many good and very good dining experiences in the restaurants in the immediate area. This was our first spectacular dinner. Ambiance, service, creativity of dishes, quality of ingredients: I score Starry Night at the top. Ambiance: we were seated inside a room with open screening, away from the bugs, yet feeling like we were outside. Birds, a pond, sunset, wildflowers. So superior to a claustrophobic city setting. The sound level was wonderful; no need to raise your voice to have a conversation, no shouting from other diners. Service: we were surrounded by smiling, gracious staff, ensuring our total care and satisfaction. There was never a need to even look up, their timing, and checking, were spot on, without being annoying. Creativity of dishes: combining seasonal fruit, grains, vegetables in ways I have not seen before, our appetizers and mains were a surprise and pleasant discovery for our taste buds. The salad greens were garden fresh and perky, with fresh fruit and grains, the gazpacho with scallops combines smooth, crunchy, savory and sweet flavors. Finally, we both selected the masterpiece halibut entree. We ate it slowly, oohing and ahing with the perfectly cooked fresh fish, thickly cut , juicy and tender. I have run out of adjectives! The prices are high, but we felt that the wait staff care and quality of the overall experience made it entirely a good value. We will return.
This is my second time here with my wife and they did not disappoint. We had brought my cousin and his wife. The cocktails were delish and looked like they belonged in a magazine that’s how good they looked. The food is full of flavor and felt like it was sourced that day. We had the same server from last time and she is so friendly and always on point. Can’t wait to come back!
We had such a great dinner at Starry Night! It was sweet to be greeted by "Happy Anniversary!" and to have such great service. And the FOOD was so wonderful and creative. A meal to remember! Thanks for making our 20th anniversary such a fun night.

Consistently one the very best places to eat in VT.

Skillful waitstaff with genuine warmth and enthusiasm for serving us the treats we ordered.
Beautiful presentation of unique, creative dishes and seasoning. We cooed and wowed throughout the meal. My father wanted to personally express to the chef, that he/she is a "true artist".
Excellent service, food was well prepared, balanced with lots of local ingredients. Highly recommend.
Delicious food. Attractively presented. Tasty drinks. Two big thumbs up!!
Starry Night is among our favorite restaurants. We've never been disappointed. Interesting food (and delicious!) in a warm environment.
The food is absolutely fantastic. And a beautiful setting.
Always a pleasant evening with amazing food and service.
As always fantastic food and drink in a beautiful setting. A must visit for a great for anyone visiting or living in the area. My halibut dinner was sublime. My wife's steak and fixings were delicious. Lovely staff as well. Enjoy!
It was a nice treat for my wife and I to get away for an evening. The menu offered a great variety, and we were able to try dishes we wouldn’t normally have! Spectacular experience!!!!
A gem of a restaurant... beautiful venue....great service...absolutely delicious food and drink. Our favorite place to eat while in Vermont!,,,,g
The strip steak (with crab meat and asparagus) was superb. We had three different deserts and all were excellent
Wonderful service , excellent food. We always have a great experience at Starry Night
Great food, attentive staff and beautiful setting.
As usual Starry Night did not disappoint! I have been here several times over the last few years and even with the pandemic, it is a magical experience. Our server was knowledgable and was patient. My carrot salad was fresh, and incredibly tasty. I got the special which was a pork loin cooked to a perfect medium with goat cheese mashed potatoes....yum. I decided to get the brown butter pound cake to go and It was a great treat to have at home. The lemon mousse was so good that I saved half for dessert the next day. I am leaving Vermont in a few months but this has always been a place that I find comfortable and always satisfying.
A wonderful experience! My lovely wife's 60th birthday, one we will not forget!
Last night a celebration for us, first time eating indoors since Covid 19 Pandemic started but now we are both fully vaccinated. We had been to Starry Night before and already had a very high opinion of this restaurant. The service and food was fabulous just as we knew it would be. We enjoyed the view of the pond while we dined marveling at the birds and an otter, it was such an enjoyable evening.
Starry Night never disappoints. Understanding we are still struggling with the pandemic, the menu choices were less than they usually are and only one special. We had just about everything on the menu as a party of four and all the plates were delicious. They easily and graciously accommodated the various dietary needs (dairy and gluten free) and made our birthday celebration special. The staff are lovely, happy to ask the kitchen questions on your behalf and all are kind and compassionate. We love going to Starry Night and hope we'll be able to make it more of a tradition as vaccinations increase throughout Vermont.
Perfect place for a special occasion. We weren't wild about the salads but everything else was sublime.
Absolutely one of the best places I have ever eaten. Definitely unable to eat their weekly due to finances, LOL, but it is worth every penny spent! Fantastic food, fantastic service, lovely environment and ambience, great music.
first time dining here - a wonderful birthday dinner. The chefs specials were impressive. Also a very nice outdoor patio seating area, look forward to that spot in warmer months ahead..
The menu is so creative and the experience was amazing. The service is truly tops and the food was amazing. It's unassuming from the facade but once you step inside it's cozy and overlooks a lovely pond and garden. It was just such a lovely evening.
The service, ambiance, food, cocktails are all amazing! The staff created an experience where you could relax and savor the experience, and the food, wine, and cocktails were so unique, flavorful, and on point!
I would highly recommend Starry Night. It's food, atmosphere, service, everything was outstanding! We always enjoy a meal here.
If you want to mix up your dining with some ingenious flares that make such a wonderful and interesting meal...this is the place. local fresh sources used a lot!
We really enjoyed it! Starry Night is a standout. Expensive but very much worth it for a special night out. The food is outstanding and the staff professional and very skilled.
Do not waste your money here. Very expensive. My duck was not edible. I had to ask for a knife to cut it with. My husband ordered the steak done med.-rare "on the rare side" and it came med to well done. The steak knife that he was given was so dull he could hardly cut his steak. When we told the waitress we were disappointed her reply was, did we want dessert!
Food is overpriced for what it is, portions very small, service mediocre, vibe generally just feels a bit pretentious.
Wonderful drinks and dinner as usual.
The dinner was great and the dessert was the best! The setting was lovely.
Throughout the years we've been patrons of Starry Night, we've been pleased with our experiences. Especially during the pandemic, S.N. did all they could to help us feel safe, thereby allowing us to feel okay about coming (except from the day after Thanksgiving, 2020 until just mid-March of 2021.
Kudos to April, her cousin, the young man who kept our water refreshed and also brought more ice for our drinks. We will certainly be coming again!!
We enjoyed our meal immensely. The food was excellent and the staff was so kind and accommodating!
