Food was good but service from our waitress was rather marginal. It seemed she had way to many tables to wait in and it took some time to provide us with cocktails and other items requested. A bit disappointed.

Honestly, I thought the restaurant was over-rated. Great service by the waitstaff but the food was mediocre for the price tag relative to other high end restaurants. I had the shrimp scampi. The pasta was nice given homemade but the shrimp was overcooked and way too buttery; you see the butter coagulate in the bottom of plate. The special occasion was a 50th birthday celebration; they gave us a plate with happy birthday written on it and a lump of whip cream and candle. Even if the person didn't want dessert, its still nice to come out with a real cake for celebration.

Although my Husband and I hadn't dined at Cafe Escarille in quite awhile as we thought the place wasn't as good the last few times, we were pleasantly surprised this time.

We decided to try it again for Boston Dine Out and liked everything about our dining experience. The menu choices and food was very good. The Service was outstanding and a big change from the last few times we dined there.

Enjoyed dinner at the Cafe Escadrille during Dine Out Boston 2018 Week. Our server was excellent, despite the staff appearing to be scrambling to handle the very full restaurant. Food was very good, and an outstanding selection of choices for Dine Out Week. We would recommend the Cafe Escadrille anytime.

Always good . Food is good and correctly cooked .
Nice bar scene , with good drinks . A little pricey but good value . If you are near a big party in the back dinning room it can get very noisy.
We were near a Cadillac dealership group celebrating something and we would have to wait in order to hear each other .

We are regulars at Cafe Escadrille and they never disappoint. This was the first year the restaurant offered a Dine Out Boston price fixed menu. The choices were outstanding! We had a lovely dinner and were thoroughly entertained by our server, Kenny. Burlington has numerous restaurants from which to choose and we have sampled many. Cafe Escadrille remains our all time favorite.

Great experience here for restaurant week! Was pleasantly surprised by both the menu options and the price point - $33 gave you quite a few options including veal! We both started with the clam chowder which was very good - thick and flavorful but not too heavy on the cream. We also ordered an appetizer off of the regular menu - fried cauliflower - and while it was good I’m not sure I would get it again simply because it was kind of plain. We both ordered the veal saltimbocca for our entrees which was fabulous. Decent sized piece of veal that also came with a side. Dessert was an Oreo brownie with French vanilla ice cream. $33 well spent! We also had a fantastic waitress (Ashley B) who was very attentive without being overbearing. Our waters were always refilled and she didn’t rush us to order. Highly recommend!

In the 30 years we have been going here, last night by far was the worse for service. It took the waitress at least ten minutes before she even came over to take our drink order. At which point we ordered appetizers as well. 15-20 min later another waitress brought the apps over and we still didnt have our drinks. Had to ask her to check on them. Martini was the worse I’ve ever had. My husband ordered prime rib and it didn’t even come with au jus. Quite a few individuals were not on their game last night! Hope next time it is a lot better!
