This used to be a great restaurant, but my wife and I went back after 15 years and found it had slipped. The food was fair and unexciting. The waitstaff was still very friendly and accommodating.

Wonderful restaurant. We’ve eaten there many times and the food is always memorable. Service is excellent and menu changes seasonally. Much of the food is local. A favorite!

Great food and they have small plates and full size. Nice to be able to pick a few different menu items. It was a little noisy but nice overall.

Interesting menu, good food, pleasant ambiance and staff.
Noisy dining room. Slow, inattentive service.
Would recommend with those reservations.

The Daily Planet was the perfect spot for a birthday dinner! A beautiful menu for large entrees or for sharing. Ambiance is cozy and eclectic, good for romantic dates or casual dinner with friends. Really something for everyone here!! Would definitely recommend to anyone traveling to Burlington.

Craft drinks were unique and tasty.
More savory less sweet on appetizers would be good, but everyone liked the portion options on the entrees and they were all tasty. We enjoyed our meal before the theatre and our server was very friendly.

Service was terrible. We waited an hour for soup and salad despite a relatively quiet Saturday night. During that hour our water glasses went empty and our server never checked in or apologized for the delay. When the food came and we protested gently about the wait, the server said, it wasn’t my fault. Food was fresh and well prepared but the formerly generous Maura’s salad was very skimpy.

Overall my family enjoyed their meals very much. There was a problem with getting our entrees out in a timely manner. They acknowledged the delay and were apologetic, but we were very hungry by the time the food arrived.
Luckily everything tasted delicious.

The waitress was awesome but the 3 hours it took to eat there was deplorable. We are done going there for a few years and plan to let people know how ridiculous the time wait was.

The Daily Planet has something for everyone and an extensive vegetarian selection. The food is good, the service is excellent, and the dimly lit lighting is absolutely perfect. Great for a romantic evening.
