I have been here a number of times and the service and food quality have always been excellent. This is the go-to place for taking guests. The freshness and quality of the ingredients are always tops. The servers are usually very knowledgeable. The specials are usually the best stuff. When softshell crab is in season I am a regular. Everything is good but I prefer fish dishes and pasta.

Just off the main street is tucked in a charming restaurant that is open Tue-Sat and recalls the time when you could actually dine with just the tinkling of glasses and quiet conversation. It was a delight to go there for Valentine's dinner and enjoy fun but discreet service, our Brooklyn born waiter obviously knew his regulars and kindly joked and brought them their favorite cocktails as if this was a private club. A beautiful room twinkled with fairly lights and celebratory balloons and huge long stem roses for the ladies. We enjoyed a delectable appetizer of mushroom ravioli before moving onto our main courses of rib-eye and rack of lamb. Both were presented beautifully and were delicious. The chef-owner, Tooraj, came out and greeted us personally. It has been a staple in Burlingame crowd and always pleases.
Also really enjoy this spot for a business lunch.

A local restaurant that has been here 15 years that I have dined and will be there to have dinner again, for business and or pleasure.

The main dishes are excellent, the beverage just right with the right wine list. The starters and the deserts are marginal.

The clientele are civil and reliable for a relaxed understated dinning.

Four of us made a reservation for a business dinner at Ecco in Burlingame. Upon arrival shortly after 6:00 on a Tuesday, there was only one other table occupied in the restaurant. By 7:00, the place was bustling with holiday parties, locals, and other business clientele.

The service was attentive, but not rushed. The food was quite good. Two of us were disappointed that they were out of the sole we ordered. We both opted for the sea bass -- one of us requesting the sole preparation. The sea bass was delicious! Other entrees were the salmon and the chicken breast. We all had a couple of drinks as well. For dessert, we ordered the chocolate cake, the cheesecake, and some sort of chocolate tart. All were quite rich.

In all, we will absolutely return to Ecco in the future.

Burlington is a mecca for all sorts of restaurants as everyone eats out here, not sure if anyone ever eats at home. Ecco is a nice part of the more quiet, trending toward white table cloth elegance than most of the others. Very professional waitstaff, know their business and their food offerings. We had great sea bass and a delicious steak with a nice bottle of wine reccomended by our knowledgable waiter. We went last October here and sat outside in very pleasant set up. This time inside is a very pleasant atmosphere. A pleasant evening with all the good things an experienced diner will enjoy.
