B. Christophers - Burlington reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Great local spot

    Dined on 11/16/2013
    The food and atmosphere were great and the service was outstanding. The filet was so incredibly flavorful it stood on its own and did not need any of the delicious sauces that B Christophers offers. I could not have been happier to give my business to a local restaurant that also supports the local farmers!

    The service was great and the food while a little pricey was excellent. We had the chateaubriand for 2 and it was done just right! It was a very nice experience.

    Dinner here was a wonderful dining experience. We typically have lunch out two or three times a week so dinner out is rare. But, dinner at B. Christophers will break that pattern and we will be back. The starter of olives and pickles with warm crusty bread was very nice. We shared the appetizer special and then followed that with two seafood dinners. One of them was the drum special with lobster potatoes and was excellent. The other was the scallop over risotto which was too good for him to share with me. Dessert was a large serving of blood orange sherbet both tangy and refreshing. Our server was competent and observant. The menu on-line did not match the menu at the restaurant. We were told the on-line menu was just a sample.

    They were totally unprepared for Elon Family Weekend. They ran out of Chateaubriand and the Tuna special. Any other time is great. Excellent food and service. Great atmosphere and one of the few really good restaurants in the area.

    Considering this is a moderate, not high end town, thought it was very pricey for what we got. Take the calf liver meal off the menu. Was not prepared well to deserve the asking price. Appetizers the best deal we all shared. THe dessert menu could be improved. EVERYONE serves these items - please be more original then the over the top chocolate cake and crème bule. Private room was a plus for our family gathering. You don't see that very often!!! All in all - it was a very comfortable dining ex periencee and the wait staff excellent but still was shocked to see some of the prices - like one would find in LA, NYC , etc.

  • A Burlington Must
    Luvgourmet
    Dined on 8/29/2013
    I had read about B. Christopher's in Gourmet magazine and was delighted to see that there was a restaurant in Burlington that features naturally grown food and that the chef uses locally grown ingredients. So when we were able to return to NC, my home state, I made a reservation for our group of 6. When we arrived our private room was awaiting and we had a very attentive waiter who accomodated our every need. Two of us had the salmon; two had the daily special which was NY Strip steak top with shrimp and a lobster sauce that they both raved about! Two more had less hefty appetities and were quite satisfied with bacon wrapped jumbo shrimp from the appetizer menu as their entree. I am a chocoholic so the hefty slice of chocolate cake!

    Dined on 8/15/2013
    Dined out to celebrate son getting into grad school. Service was OK, but waitress seemed a little disinterested. My daughter's filet was overcooked (ordered medium rare) and it was barely pink inside. Did not want to cause a scene, so she did not send back. For the price of these steaks, they should be cooked to perfection. Other dishes were very good (salmon, chicken, chautebraud for two). This is, however, the second time we've had issues with an expensive steak that was not prepared correctly. Overall, I think the menu is pricey for what you receive. I would only go on a special occasion.

    Too pricey!! The food was good to very good....portions were adequate...service was friendly, attentive...however, for such high prices,,,,and the attention given to try to create the illusion of "fine dining", their choice of menu presentation was pretty lame. A long sheet of thick paper with all entrees, etc., on one side, and the wine list on the other....one would expect a leather bound menu no larger than a sheet of paper....this might have offset the high prices denoted on this piece of paper!... This part of the general impression took away any initial thought that this was indeed a special place to dine.

Dessert was the perfect ending to a perfect meal. The ambiance was soothing and the wait staff was one of the best we've ever had.

    I have lived in the area for a long time,but I am surprised it took my this long to get to Christopher B,s. I love that they try to use local food. The service is first class all the way. Was first shown to a table in the back of the restaurant , which seems to be my luck, but no problem , or big smirks when ask for another table. Will come again.

    We dined at B. Christopher's last and as always it was a wonderful experience. The food is top notch, with plenty to choose from depending on your preferences. The wait staff is always extremely professional, making it an overall terrific evening. I only had one suggestion, and it's a minor one--can't help myself, I'm a foodie. For the mashed potatoes, they were a little water-y. They seemed to be made with russet potatoes perhaps, however yukon gold would have been sooo much creamier and tastier. See ya again soon!

    June is a filled month for our family, and this year we also added a graduate to the calendar. Two birthdays, Fathers day (for my dad, and myself being a dad), and as stated, a graduation. This dinner was to honor all these things, and B Christophers did a great job. The waiter was great, the food was great, overall an excellent experience.

    I wanted to take my girlfriend somewhere nice for prom and i was refered to B Christophers in Burlington. It was very nice on the inside of the restaurant. The hostesess were very warm and welcomingand our waitress was very personable. But ill be honest the starters we were served tasted better than the actual entrees. The bread at tomatoes outstood our maim entres. We were so pressed to say anything about our disapointment because we didnt think it would be appropriate for our prom night. I can honestly say we left feeling much less satisfied than our arrival. I want a refund but i doubt that will happen. Also the waitress was nice at first but toward the end she rushed us out. Idk why but we felt rushed.

    The atmosphere was excellent for couples or groups of four. My wife and I had the smoked caesar salad, and it was awesome (highly recommend it!). However, the food in my opinion went down a step after that. The Lump Crab with avacado, had a bit too much mayo in it (almost like how I would make tunafish). Also should have been served with a bread product like a melba toast, or something. I had the ribeye (ordered medium). The meat was served rare (not even medium rare). The chef came out to ask if everything was OK, and I told him, and he said he usually serves "under" just in case. If you are a steakhouse, you should be serving it as the customer requests, and be an expert at it. For a $30+ steak, I expected more.

    Overall a good experience. Disappointed in the bisque - didn't taste like anything, took a couple tastes and the waiter didn't question if we liked or didn't liked when he removed it and saw it really had not been touched. Caesar salad nice presentation and tasty. Filet cooked perfect. Surprised desserts weren't made in house.

    We were visiting Elong with our daughter and wanted to find a local spot for Saturday night dinner....we were not disappointed with our selection. We made a reservation, arrived to be seated immediately, enjoyed our wine and had a great dinner -- the Ribeye was outstanding and the mushrooms were perfect! As the night went on, we saw groups, families, college kids come and go.....it was a unexpected night in Burlington -- if our daughter confirms Elon, we will be back soon, jean

    This was my first visit, and my husband and I ordered catfish bites and french onion soup as appetizers, salad wedge, New York Strip with mash potatotes, and tea to drink. The bites were just ok, the wedge was good, French Onion soup was ok, mash potatoes ok, but the strips, mine inparticular, was full of fat. Not just the fat that you find on the outside of a cut of meat but throughout the steak. It would not be an exaggeration to say I had to remove about 1/3 - 1/2 of the steak from my mouth because of the fat. He had some as well, but it wasn't as bad as mine. Definitely not a $34 steak.
