We ate dinner at Paulines which we visited several years ago and it's just as good as it was. It's a small intimate restaurant with a great menu. The Vermont cheese sampler appetizer is one of our favorites, in addition to our main dishes. Check it out.

Four of us were staying at a nearby hotel and enjoyed the short walk to the restaurant. Somehow we were not expecting much but had a pleasant surprise. All four of us were very pleased with our diverse dinner choices we all returned the next night for dinner and we were all again equally pleased.

I recently had lunch with a friend here, for his birthday. The restaurant itself is particularly cosy in the enclosed porch. This is the preferred place to eat. The menu is varied and offers many delicious alternatives. I had a lovely curry tomato bisque and a salad with Cajun chicken, shredded carrots and beets and blue cheese crumbles. My guest... More

From the outside the restaurant looks more like someone's home and parking is somewhat limited. The inside is very nice and cozy. The best part is the food. The menu has several unusual but tempting offers, which makes the selection difficult. Everything we had tasted very good and we would return over and over if we lived in the area.

Last night, after traveling from Connecticut to Vermont for five hours to attend an anniversary luncheon, we opted for an early dinner in the area, never realizing that during the "foliage season" reservations are a must. When we learned there were no tables available, we offered to sit at the bar and the server Kevin readily agreed. We then met... More

My husband & I are visiting the area for the first time and decided to check out Pauline's for an early dinner! There were mixed reviews, so we were a little hesitant! I must say, overall we were pleasantly surprised! Our server was sweet & friendly! Everything was served fairly quickly and the food was very fresh and delicious! We... More

We enjoyed a delicious dinner at Pauline's. The location is convenient. Service was a little slow on the busy Saturday night. Atmosphere was relaxing so we did not mind. Would suggest reservations. Popovers are not to be missed!

Stopped for a quick lunch with 3 friends. We had a very nice lunch, but it was not quick by any means. Allow time to enjoy the food. All made from scratch, we all 4 enjoyed our lunch. A bit on the pricey side.

My spouse and I had dinner here. The food we had was pretty decent but the prices were on the higher end for the portion sizes. My spouse's crab cake entrée was good, but did not come with a starch, just mixed sautéed veg, server said that was how it came. Their signature cocktails also run high but are extremely... More

We got into Burlington rather late our first night and they were very accommodating when we wanted a light supper. We each had a different salad and shared a crab cake. The waitress was very knowledgeable and helpful with our choices.
