Restaurant was great. Some of the other (younger) diners that night were annoying.
Spectacular meal. The Blackbird was tremendous and the surf and turf was outstanding. I don’t think I have ever thought of the lobster as a side dish. Wow what a wonderful sauce/gravy. Absolutely great!
We found this place last year to celebrate my wife's birthday and just had to return this year. The owners couldn't be more cordial and obviously have put their hearts and souls into the restaurant. The food, service and ambiance are all first class and no doubt we come up from Jacksonville again next year.
Burlingame is our favorite restaurant in town for a nice evening out. We had a great time celebrating my husbands birthday! We sat outside in their courtyard. The atmosphere was cozy and welcoming. The food and wine were superb. They sent us caviar on the house which was amazing. The whole evening was really fun and special. I highly recommend this place!
Wonderful meal with Michaleh as our server. We had the roasted Brussels as a starter and then the diver scallops and NY Strip and frites. The meals were outstanding. While the prices are healthy, the chef does a wonderful job and it is well worth it. It was an excellent experience
Our server was amazing! She even sent us away with some amazing wine suggestions for home.
Wednesday night dinner with friends visiting from St. Pete was absolutely wonderful. It was one of our friends' birthday and our server, Mikayla, surprised him with a signed card by the restaurant staff. He sincerely appreciated the kind gesture and we all appreciated her warm and personable attention.
We all enjoyed the endive salad as a starter with the bacon viniagrette.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their entrees of shrimp risotto, flounder and NY strip steak.
Our bottles of wine (a Napa cabernet sauvignon and a Sonoma pinor noir) paired nicely with the meal as well as dessert -- their delicious graham cracker crust chocolate torte.
They look forward to joining us again at Burlingame when they return for a visit.
The service was great, the patio is nice for a safe dining experience but we felt the food was not up to the previous quality. The snapper overcooked and the scallops presentation changed and really didn’t work. Prefer the grapefruit and risotto that used to be offered with the scallops.
Our 20th wedding anniversary- everyone made it extra special
Burlingame was recommended to us and we are ever so thankful. This was perhaps the best dining experience we had during our vacation. Dining was outside which was pleasant. Enjoyed a lovely cocktail along with our oysters which were on point. Dinner was the Diver Scallops and NY Strip both tastefully served and delicious. This is the place to dine if you have only one night in Amelia Island. Superb!!!
Marvella was our server this evening and she did a wonderful job. We have plans to come back to Fernandina Beach in January and will definitely have this as one of our stops for dinner. I highly recommend the Snapper. It was delicious.
Food and service were both outstanding.
A very nice anniversary dinner.
We stayed in Fernandina area just to celebrate our 42nd anniversary at Burlingame. I had been there previously and had a wonderful experience. The room we were seated in was just opposite the register on the right. It wasn’t cosy or warm and the lighting was like fluorescent. One print on the wall looks like the Covid virus. We asked to move, but we’re told nothing else was available. Shortly, the other two tables were seated with Football fans who were loud and boisterous.
We came away very disappointed.
Everything was absolutely outstanding; from the food, to service, to cocktails and ambiance. There were 4 of us and everyone’s meals were delicious and well prepared.
No shortcuts here; everything is prepared fresh. The bartender is excellent and pours some mad cocktails. We would highly recommend Burlingame anytime and it is a special treat for an occasion. Thank you for a stellar dinner!
One of our favorites. Always great.
Delicious food. Good service. Well worth the trip.
Very pleasant outside seating area with well spaced tables well. It was so nice to be able to go out to dinner and still feel "safe". The owner/host and our server were very gracious and knowledgeable. Loved the three appetizers we tried-- charred octopus was super tender with nice sauce, fried brussels with mushrooms and cranberries superb and the lamb cappelletti was delicious. Snapper entrée was ok. A little on the salty side, but would give it another try for sure.
Wonderful Monday evening on the patio with outstanding service from Nina.
The soft brie-like cheese and speck on the charcuterie plate were flavorful and great accompaniments to our Writer's Block bottle of wine.
The endive salad was delicious particularly with the hot bacon dressing.
The evening's NY Strip steak special was nice and tender; the accompanying truffle fries were cooked perfectly and tasty.
The graham cracker chocolate torte was the perfect ending along with some bubby brut rose from Alsace.
This restaurant always shines!
Good food and nice atmosphere. Would come back again.
Superb cuisine. Great wine list
Very limited menu and bland ambiance. Food was very good hpwever.
Amazing service, cute atmosphere, great bourbon selection, delicious food—fresh and creative. Highly recommend!
Atmosphere was beautiful, clean, and quiet. Our see ever was friendly and efficient. The Brussels sprout appetizer was soooo good! I had Osso Bucco pork for dinner and I’m still talking about how good it was! Wonderful experience!! Can’t wait to go back!
Very good food but limited menu options and expensive
We’ve always liked Burlingame’s for a special nite out. This was my husband’s birthday, originally planned for Monday, but since we lost power where we live, we had to delay it. My only comment is the menu is a little limited, but I understand in the age of COVID. I’m glad they are taking all safety CDC precautions, limiting the number, masks, etc.
Sat outside on covered patio- really cool setting with auto closing roof when rain sprinkled. Brussels sprouts appetizer was delicious. Great service, excellent desserts! Would eat there again.
How do you improve on outstanding food? 25% off bottles of wine!
Atmosphere was very nice inside, tables spaced per CDC guidelines.
Service was okay, not what I would expect for the price point. Don't order the Pecan pie, it was a joke.
Good food in a great atmosphere with a caring staff. I would highly recommend Burlingame to anyone visiting Fernandina.
First time. Very enjoyable. Facilities are upscale. Food was excellent. Service was competent and attentive.
Food was amazing!!!
In these times of Covid, Burlingame was a welcome retreat. Service was excellent and the food was great. Limited menu - but that just means that what is prepared get the complete attention of the chef!! Highly recommend!!
Gorgeous evening on their patio (tables were well spaced). Tried the Bee's Knees cocktail and loved it. Just the right amount of Meyer Lemon. We ordered the grilled octopus for appetizer. It included a lovely cream sauce and roasted peppers and grilled potatoes which were a wonderful companion to the charred octopus. My husband had the wild rice vegetarian meal and I went for the lamb cappelletti and fried brussels sprouts. Just perfect! They included a candle in his chocolate tart for his birthday. Outstanding service and perfect birthday evening. Will go again even if it's not a special event!
Fantastic date night with my wife. My steak was cooked to perfection. Chad Livingston continues to prove he is a master at his craft.
Amazing experience - the food, service and wine! Taking every precaution to keep you safe while making you feel as if you are part of their family!
Supposed to be a birthday dinner but they didn’t do anything special or even mention it. Put us in a side room with no decor and boring wood table and chairs. No ambiance and our bill was $200 without alcohol for 2 people. Not impressed.
I reached out privately but received no reply. We had two reservations which noted a birthday the evening you dined and acknowledged them both. Design and decor are matters of individual taste. We, and most of our guests, prefer a clean, modern look which our extraordinary walnut tables contribute to. The photos of the restaurant on our website clearly show the interior style of the restaurant. We are sorry our design and ambiance didn't meet your preferences.
Great experience. Outstanding service and the food was amazing.
