Blue Cat was the perfect place to have as our first indoor dining experience in over one year. The staff followed strict Covid guidelines of spacing between tables and sanitizing after every guest. We felt very safe. Our server was personable and very efficient making our dining very enjoyable. The space was quiet enough to enjoy conversation yet had enough energy to make us feel that we were in a fun environment. I will definitely return when I am in Burlington again.
What a fantastic dinner!!! Had a great time! Service was so pleasant!
This was the second time we had date night at the Blue Cat.
It just keeps getting better every time we have dinner.The knowledge of the waitstaff about the food and wine list is incredible,you can leave your entire evening in there hands and have the night to yourselfs. They will take care of everything for you.
Would never recommend this place. We went for dinner and we sat for an hour and 25 min before we got our salads and cheese board. We had to stop the waitress and ask her where our food was. she stated they where short staffed and had an issue with another customer....but no one came out to explain any of that until after we asked them. To get through our whole meal was 2.5 hours and when we asked to speak to the manager she said she was to busy to come out. We ordered a filet medium it was medium rare and when we asked to have it cooked longer we where told it would be another 20 min. Overall this place is a dump with horrible service!
What a terrific find! Beautiful ambience, delicious food, and lots of variety on the menu. This place is the perfect date night place.
A most memorable birthday dinner at Blue Cat Steak House. The steaks and lamb were delicious as were the tempura shrimp and foie gras appetizers. The wine list is well chosen and fairly priced. The ambience is warm and inviting and has a Parisian bistro feel. The staff could not have been more patient and helpful guiding us through menu selections and they mix a mean cocktail as well. A hidden gem not to be missed. Thank you Blue Cat for making the evening truly special.
Amazing food and great service. Best steak I have had hands down
We have never had a better experience. The service was impeccable the food was excellent the waiter was the best knew what we need when we needed it left us alone when we needed that too the blue cat will be our go to place for date night
Excellent service, atmosphere and the food was amazing!! Definitely would recommend!!
The cheese plate app was the highlight of the night. A pasta special ( roasted red pepper ravioli) was swimming in balsamic vinegar and just OK. The steak was good but not great. Neither the server or person preparing food had in a mask when we entered. The server donned hers, but the person preparing food never moved her mask off her chin the entire night. Didn’t give me a very good feeling about the overall health and safety conditions of the place.
The Blue Cat was an outstanding place for a last-minute, intimate birthday dinner. The wine was superb, steak, ravioli, and salmon were perfection, and the service was unmatched. We could not have picked a better place with planning and the club downstairs was fantastic for after-dinner drinks.
Currently this wonderful woman does the cooking and waits the tables, and manages a quiet elegant ambiance. The rib-eye steak was huge and perfectly cooked.
Cozy and intimate venue. Loved our server Ryan, very attentive and helpful. Wine recommendation was spot on. Dinner was pricey for cut of meat we ordered, but all was tasty.
Always has been one of my favorite places. Also, I don't want to be to harsh due to the pandemic. But both my wife and I were freezing during our meal. Also, the service was a little off this time. The Food was very good.
Perfect for the two of us. Delicious steak and fish. Excellent wine. Friendly and attentive service. Chef interaction was a bonus!

Wonderful experience ! Staff and chef were personable and attentive . Dinner was delicious ! Will definitely return .
An anniversary meal for two was a great time. We had the Blue Cat all to ourselves, probably due to Covid 19 concerns. Our server was very attentive despite we being her only customers. She could have just ignored us but did not. The Filet Mignon steaks were perfection and the sides were very well prepared. Will go again for sure.
I am a chef so bear with me...
The service was pretty good but it was the owner who served us not a server. AND we were the only guests. I would have staged the appetizers better because we were sharing. Or at the least brought share plates. The dinners felt rushed too...which wasn’t necessary at all. Food needed color on the plates. Huge white ones with bland color food. It tasted pretty good and we especially liked the curried mussels as well as the filet. All in all a good experience considering being covid times weirdness. I’d love to go back and coach them as per how to set a proper table,etc...
Excellent birthday dinner. Thank you!! Looking forward to returning once Covid passes...
Perfect spot for a date
We had a fantastic meal! Maria was our server and she was fantastic! This place is a hidden gem in a sea of restaurants in Burlington!
I've been here a number of times. Started with a Caesar salad that was excellent. Main course was filet mignon which was very tender and flavorful. Sides were tasty mashed potatoes and grilled zucchini. We chose a bottle of Caymus Cabernet to complement the meal and it matched or dinner so well.
The tables were far apart due to covid and the staff was masked and quite friendly.
The ravioli was probably the worst I’ve ever had. It was so dry/hard and drenched (a full on river) in some sort of balsamic.
The waitress was extremely kind and the vibe was really nice there but not worth the money
We went for our anniversary dinner and our service was amazing, the food was devoured in seconds. I couldn’t of had a better experience if I tried. Five thumbs up.
Made a reservation and was not allowed to sit in the establishment. Was seated in the corridor. Menu was limited to three entrees. When we placed our order one of the three was sold out. My steak was great but my vegetable consisted of one Brussel sprout cut in half.
amazing food and amazing service!!! best location in Burlington
Wonderful service and food Great wines Not a huge selection of entres but excellent
My belief is that they forced a reopening without any thought to execution. We waited 45 minutes for our appetizers, another 45 minutes for our food. By the time we got our food, it was cold, dry, overcooked and we just wanted to get out of there. Our server handles everything in stride- no complaints there, but it was clear he was serving too many tables and he mentioned that there was a single chef cooking for the entire restaurant. Maybe in non-covid times, this would be a good dinner spot but I would avoid it until then. It was extremely overpriced. $35 for a filet that was cold and dry, and literally 2 bites of cold mashed potatoes.
Understaffed-big time! We waited 2 hours for food, just 2 waitstaff & 1cook. Too bad because the restaurant is cozy & food is good.
Waited about an hour to get our appetizer. Service just way too slow. Food was very good but not worth the wait
Large shrimp for appetizer no flavor
Ravioli with squash & balsamic vinegar., the were floating in vinegar.
Music very loud
The food was incredible.
I came to the Blue Cat with my mother for dinner after completing a 120 mile bike ride and I ordered the ribeye steak and bottle of wine. The food and the wine was amazing, and our waitress was so kind and attentive! There was a band playing outside that we could hear from our table and the ambience was perfect. Highly recommend!
Beautiful intimate little venue. The food was really good. My husband said the NY Strip was the best he’d ever had.
We sat on their balcony, which was cozy. The bar next door had live music, which we enjoyed. The menu was limited, which I don’t mind. Unfortunately the quality of the dishes was disappointing. My husband had a brisket sandwich, which was the best of the food and best price at $15. My choice was a red pepper ravioli. For $25 I got 5 pieces of ravioli and 1 artichoke heart cut into quarters. The ravioli wasn’t very warm and the artichoke hearts were actually cool. It was swimming in oil with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar. The service was adequate but nothing to write home about. For dessert we shared a slice of raspberry pie, which tasted ok but didn’t seem very fresh, with some raspberry ice cream. Very “home style” plating.
We’ve been dining here since they opened 14 years ago and we’ve never been disappointed. Amazing food and perfect wine pairings. Great service too.
We have always loved the Blue Cat but we were disappointed this time. I know due to COVID, the menu option is more limited. We used to be able to get a nice glass of wine there and for a glass, there was one option and a wine that I would not charge that kind of money for. We asked for a martini chilled and the person waiting on us and also making our drinks was not super confident. I am sure not her fault as she was out of vodka and wasn't able to chill it.
I don't know if we will be back unless it gets back to the way it used to be for the money you spend in there.
Marisa is a one woman band serving up excellent fare .. Check web for days open under Covid ..
Limited hours basically 5-8:30 but this small intimate restaurant shines . Has both indoor and out door seating.
Wonderful food, well portioned - nice wine list
Wonderful for a date night! Food and atmosphere was outstanding.
Loved the atmosphere sitting out in the alleyway patio with the band playing right next door. Service and food were both top notch too.
Overall we had a really nice date night at the Blue Cat.
