We went to the Daily Planet for pre-dinner drinks by a friend who visits Burlington every year. We were told that the mojito is great, but unfortunately it wasn't on the menu so we had to try a few others :-) The bar staff were not particularly friendly or attentive, but we got chatting to a few other people who...

We made a reservation for 5:30P on a Saturday night and were seated upon arrival. We sat in the greenhouse section. The place was pretty full being so early. The service in the beginning of the meal was just ok. We seemed to have many different people coming to the table and requests such as lemon and a napkin were... More

Arrived on a Saturday night around 7 (with a reservation) and were quickly seated. The restaurant has a couple of front rooms, with lots of windows and plants, and we were seated on the left side room (as you face the restaurant), while the bar is on the other side. The back room seemed louder, but also nice. We started... More

The cocktails here are always good! I have eaten here maybe four times and have been disappointing with the quantity of food for the price and have never left feeling like it was worth it or that I just ate something memorable.

4 of us had dinner. We had the truffle fries and polenta fries for a starter. Truffle fries very good, polenta fries, eh! Two had a scallop dish, wish they said was excellent, I had the swordfish which was absolutely delish and the fourth was a vegetarian who was looking forward to the soup we had read about online, which...

I had the swordfish and my husband ordered the salmon, as well as a brussel sprouts appetizer. All of the food was delicious! We really liked the atmosphere as well. The only negative was the very slow service.

We went Sunday night and sat in the bar area. Our server was super friendly with great recommendations and things to do in town. We got the cheese plate (to die for), the egg rolls, and the smoked Mac n cheese. Everything was perfect. We went back Monday and the bartender was not very friendly so we went elsewhere for...

Thank you for this great review! I believe Jenn was your server and I will certainly pass this along to her. We apologize for the service you received Monday as we are going through a great loss at the Planet. The bartender who was on was truly doing her best to make it through the night. We are grateful to... More

We met friends for cocktails and then dinner at the Daily Planet. We were seated in the sun room, at a lovely table that was comfortable and allowed a view of the restaurant. We had the ahi tuna fish tacos with chipotle mayo, mashed avocado and a lovely slaw. Additionally we all had salads. The Duck and Frisée salad was... More

Party of Five (remember that tv show)? Appetizers came quickly - super lobster chowder, and braised brussels sprouts (inc. maple syrup). Then a very, very long lull. Quick trip to bathroom and I reminded the waitress to check on our entrees. (Bathroom kind of funky smelling, and stalls so small that only midgets can fit). Ah, at last, the entrees... More

Was here tonight while driving through the state en route to Boston. My boyfriend chose it based on the menu and on previous reviews and we were not disappointed! The deep-fried oysters were such flavorful mouthfuls (!) and all of the other dishes we shared were tasty as well.
