It's not cheap, but the food is excellent -- you get what you pay for. And nowhere else in town has food that's as good for any cheaper, anyway! Intimate atmosphere and friendly service that's the right amount of attentive without being overbearing.
Meal was incredible and our server, Jay, was extremely knowledgeable of the menu and wine list. Very friendly staff and a wonderful time!!
Always reliable and great food. Always a nice spot after a long week.
Ambiance but local, organically cooked meals with presentation
Just an average experience. Service was a little slow considering not many patrons. Started off with a good signature cocktail. Had escargot for an app and it was really lacking in flavor. It really could have used a good dose of garlic with the butter. And it was sizzling hot...tried to give it some time to cool off but still burned my tongue and roof of my mouth. Filled was a very nice cut and cooked perfectly but again...a lack of flavor. It was supposed the be pepper crusted but looked like it was only seared. And oddly, the seasoned butter daub didn't deliver. I was hoping for more for my money, especially given the high trip advisor rating.
Love our neighborhood favorite, Pauline’s.
Food and service were excellent. Only food remark would be that the oysters in the oysters Rockefeller dish were on the larger side. Would have preferred them to be smaller.
Lighting was a little too direct with spotlight-type fixtures (upstairs). Would be better if dimmed. Missing the white tablecloths that always added some romance to the silver service.
Would definitely recommend to others.
Everything was wonderful. The food and service was great. I would recommend Pauline’s to everyone.
The food at Pauline’s is amazing and we are never disappointed! Great date night ❤️
Enjoyed our time there. Food was good, staff receptive.
Went for an early Valentine's dinner. Staff was very friendly, service was quick and efficient. Food was delicious. Prices were reasonable.
Meh. It started off badly when we they seated us too close to another table, obstructing the server's path to other tables. We had to move the take ourselves not to be in the way, but our conversation was still affected, as we were too near the other table, and heard every word they were saying. You'd think the restaurant could figure this out better considering available space and covid. The food was barely average. We were hoping for so much better considering how rarely we go out anymore.
A great little restaurant with a unique menu, lovely staff, and nice atmosphere. The food was delicious! I will definitely go again next time I’m in town.
A+ on everything.
Great service, wonderful food.
Wonderful atmosphere, a nice special for the evening, undercooked a bit.
Jay was our service person, he did a great job, very friendly and had great timing for checking on us. I highly recommend the restaurant.
We always look forward to a lovely dining experience; we are never disappointed!
We had not been to Paulines in awhile and decided it would be nice since we know the food is usually great. It did not disappoint. From my specialty cocktail to our appetizer and main entree of Pork schnitzel it was delicious! The service was excellent. We will be going again soon!
Excellent Risotto and Filet. Drinks were great too. Cozy atmosphere.
lovey - they are doing a great job during this slamdemic.
It was our first time and we will return. Everything was wonderful
Outstanding service, decadent menu! The escargot is divine and the Key Lime Pie dreamy. My new favorite Burlington area restaurant!
It’s always a pleasure to dine at Pauline’s. The food is always exceptional & very carefully prepared & presented. I consider it a step above for the area as a dining experience.
Dinner was for our 50th wedding anniversary on that day. It was a wonderful day and such a joy for us to enjoy it at such a wonderful place with such delightful food and with such a pleasant staff. Thank you all for the beautiful memories.
We chose Pauline’s for my husband’s birthday, because it has always been very good in every way. Dennis loved his seafood selection and I really enjoyed the only vegan item on the list of entrees: an “Impossible Burger”, with a gluten free bun I had brought from home. Dennis loved the creme brûlée. The waitstaff were delightful!
Everything tasted amazing. It is my third year living in the area and this is one of the best places around I’ve experienced.
Pauline's is always a great experience: excellent food with a wide variety, very attentive service, nice quiet ambiance.
Food was great. Server was awesome. They were so nice and friendly.
We had a delicious dinner at Pauline’s. Our waiter did a great job, I think his name was Jay. The portions are really big and they’re plated beautifully.
Great food and great adherence to Covid procedures - would recommend!
Whether it’s for a special evening out or just because… This place is a special experience on every level!
Everything is great except it’s cold by the windows.
Everything was excellent at Pauline's Saturday night.
The staff was great only surpassed by the food !!
We went here for Thanksgiving - wonderful service and incredible food. Really enjoyed ourselves.
5 star Thanksgiving dinner**
Love Thanksgiving at Pauline’s! Service is appropriately relaxed but professional, food is fine although nothing is elevated and the carrot soup, dressing and gravy was bland when turkey needs some sides that sing!
Paulines has amazing food! My favorite Filet Mignon!
Always a great place to gather for a meal! Our brunch food was great and we enjoyed catching up in a safe COVID environment.
As a person with celiac disease, I really appreciate the many gluten free choices.
You get 6 stars in all categories. The food is always incredible. The service and staff are friendly and personable. We have never had a bad experience. We would recommend Pauline's to anyone and everyone. Thank you and keep up the good work.
Consistently delicious. Brunch was excellent and waitstaff was great.
