What a wonderful find...My son was graduating from college and being Mother's Day as well many of the local restaurants in Burlington were booked well in advance. I found Pauline's after doing a search on TripAdvisor. The reviews were good but it was difficult to tell what the ambiance would be like and I didn't want to disappoint my family consisting of 3 teenage boys, graduating son, husband and mother. I'm happy to say Pauline's did not disappoint in the least. We were seated promptly and were able to order off the special Mother's Day brunch menu. From appetizers through dessert everything was superb. Everyone -- even my mother who isn't always easy to please -- raved about their meals. Don't hesitate to dine here. It was excellent!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMcan't go wrongI make it a point to never give any establishment 5 stars because that my be subjective. In my mind it is and always has been
a solid across the board 4 star.
can't miss5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMSeasonal WonderWe brought friends from Montreal for the Special Spring Menu that included ramps and fiddleheads. One of our guests raved that the gnocchi were the best she had ever had. I have to agree, they were as light as air and the pan- frying added another dimension to the experience. My husband loved the vegan chocolate pot de creme. It was made with coconut milk instead of heavy cream and yet it was smooth, silky, rich, and perhaps even better than the traditional method. I loved the pickled parsnip and ramp/fiddlehead appetizer. Kudos to the chef! It was the absolute perfect spring meal.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA favorite for lunch or dinnerPauline's is a go to restaurant for me, my friends and my husband. There are many options for all food eaters - gluten free, vegetarian and vegan. I usually order a soup and a salad. They cannot disappoint! I recently had a butternut squash soup followed by the beet salad which had candied walnuts and goat cheese. Lunch or dinner is always preceded by homemade popovers and focaccia. Delicious!! I will be back soon!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall pretty good. GreatOverall pretty good. Great appitizers and desserts. Entrees are delicious but the portions are a little small for the price.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Easter brunch was deliciousThe Easter brunch was delicious with multiple choices. It was hard to choose. The eggs benedict on crab cake was luscious!! Our waitress, I think her name was Vanessa, was wonderful! She was very attentive and cheerful. She was delightful and a great ambassador for the restuarant. I would do this again in a heartbeat!!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAlmost a perfect balance betweenAlmost a perfect balance between cost,quality,and portion.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, great service!Good food, great service!
Just wish the extremely loud, obnoxious woman seated at the bar would stop recounting her drunken escapades that no one else really needed to hear . Unfortunately the bartender seemed intent on keeping the conversation going!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
