The food was excellent. It probably wasn’t the best place to bring small kids.

Unfortunately, our food was almost inedible. Both the grilled chicken on my salad and my husband’s tuna tasted strongly of gas (as if the gas from the stove top was on too high and so not fully consumed as flame before contacting the food). My husband ordered his tuna medium and it was served rare. We sent it back resulting in him watching me eat and then me watching him eat, which is not acceptable generally and certainly not at this price point. We have eaten at this restaurant in the past and enjoyed it, but based on this experience I doubt we will return. Very disappointing, to say the least.

Wow, Michelle is quite talented! We arrived early for our reservation, were promptly greeted by a kind hostess that showed us directly to our table and thanked us for coming in. Our waitress Fawn was gracious, pleasant and helpful in our decisions for dinner and dessert. The food is incredible and possibly the best in town. Prepare your palette for an uncommonly good mix of flavor. We can't wait to go back!

Overall very average. Greeted by a pleasant but not very animated host. Waitress was fine but nothing special for what was a birthday dinner ( they were aware of the special oak occasion in our reservation but did not ask or acknowledge). Charcuterie was store bought meats and cheese. Nothing special. I can get Gouda, Brie and manchego at Costco. I had the braised short ribs. The fat cap was 1/4 inch thick and not rendered down all the way and they were covered in what appeared to be a jarred pepper jelly. Salmon special was good. Brisket sandwich was
Mostly onions and slaw.
Vocalist for the evening had a great voice.
Next time we would probably hit the diner next door. I wanted a special meal, not just another average dinner.

Michelle's is the premier restaurant in Burlington. The experience begins at the door with a warm greeting and extends to efficient but not intrusive service and outstanding culinary offerings. Not for everyday dining- it is a bit pricey- but the hands- down choice for special occasions.

Michelle’s Kitchen & Table is such a delightful little gem. I love going there when we visit our daughter at Elon. The food is simply outstanding - no other word. New York quality in the heart of Burlington. Creative menu choices - something to satisfy everyone’s palate. So much thought and effort clearly goes into the presentation as well. We highly recommend the salads, small plates such as the fried green tomatoes and pimento cheese fritters, as well as the burger, fillet and shrimp and grits. All ingredients are fresh and your food is arrives hot. The other thing they do very well is hire attentive wait staff who time your meal well - you never feel rushed. It was the perfect date night with my husband tucked away in a cozy, romantic booth. Thank you for a wonderfully relaxing evening. Look forward to seeing you again during Elon Parents’ Weekend!

My wife and I are fairly new to the area (2/12 years in Alamance County) but Michelle's quickly became our favorite restaurant in Alamance County. The food, the service, the whole dining experience has been terrific, not one "off" night of service, etc. since. I've recommended Michelle's Kitchen and Table to my sister and she and some of her friends have already had a girl's night out there. Continue the stellar work!

Michelle's Kitchen & Table has quickly become one of my favorite restaurants!!! I have been a fan of her food for a while, but mainly for lunch and catering. My dinner experience there took my love for the restaurant to a whole new level!!! I am mad at myself for just now deciding to go for dinner. I could have been enjoying their exquisite food and ambience all along! This will definitely become a regular habit for me now. When you go, be sure to ask for Jessica. What an amazing, attentive, and entertaining server!!!

Our favorite Burlington restaurant. The menu is always imaginative, with plenty of variety, but not too long. The food quality is consistently excellent. The wine list is well chosen, and the bartender does good work.

My wife and I drove an hour each way for dinner at Michelle's. Neither of us knew anything about the place up front. I found it through an internet search of venues nearby that had music. The musician who was scheduled to play there was appealing so we gambled on the food.
In this case, our gamble payed off in spades. The food was excellent! The bar was well stocked and I was able to get my favorite cocktail with no problem. The service was wonderful, the atmosphere was nice, and the manager was very gracious. All in all, we had a remarkable time and I won't hesitate to make the drive there again.

My medium well steak was very well done. Table beside us had the same problem. Table of two received two small rolls. Would lie to see four in the basket. Two per person considering the size. Besides the steak, the food was delicious.

There are lots of restaurants in lots of strip malls in Burlington. It's nice to find one where the menu is authentic and adventurous, the service is very friendly, and the interior space is pleasant and doesn't feel like you're in a strip mall. I've been here three times now, all on business, but the next time my wife is in town I plan to bring her here.

Take it from the parent of an Elon student. This is the ONLY place to dine when you are in Burlington, NC. The food is so delicious - absolutely homemade! Service couldn’t be more friendly. Restaurant is clean and nicely decorated. Dined in for dinner, but also carried out lunch twice and still excellent. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! You won’t be sorry.
