Visit to Daily Planet often. Always very pleased with the drinks and food. Whether you are looking for something a bit more causal or a nice sit down dinner you cannot go wrong with this choice.

We had dinner at the Daily Planet on New Year's Eve. Despite being a busy place, we had excellent service - our servers were attentive, informative and friendly without being invasive. The four of us shared some apps - the Asian eggroll and the parmesan fries (fantastic!), but we all chose something different for dinner - scallops, a steak, a... More

My family was trying to decide where to take my daughter to celebrate her 23rd birthday while she was visiting us. We actually did spend some time on TA trying to find a great place to go, and I should have paid more attention to the less-than-positive reviews here on TA. The atmosphere was OK but nothing special. My biggest... More

I love Daily Planet. It's always my go to before a show at the Flynn or for a meet up after work. Cozy atmosphere and friendly staff with an always changing menu. Cocktails that are unique and creative and affordable. Check out burger night on Mondays or Taco Tuesday!

We went to the Daily Planet for pre-dinner drinks by a friend who visits Burlington every year. We were told that the mojito is great, but unfortunately it wasn't on the menu so we had to try a few others :-) The bar staff were not particularly friendly or attentive, but we got chatting to a few other people who...

We made a reservation for 5:30P on a Saturday night and were seated upon arrival. We sat in the greenhouse section. The place was pretty full being so early. The service in the beginning of the meal was just ok. We seemed to have many different people coming to the table and requests such as lemon and a napkin were... More

Arrived on a Saturday night around 7 (with a reservation) and were quickly seated. The restaurant has a couple of front rooms, with lots of windows and plants, and we were seated on the left side room (as you face the restaurant), while the bar is on the other side. The back room seemed louder, but also nice. We started... More

The cocktails here are always good! I have eaten here maybe four times and have been disappointing with the quantity of food for the price and have never left feeling like it was worth it or that I just ate something memorable.

4 of us had dinner. We had the truffle fries and polenta fries for a starter. Truffle fries very good, polenta fries, eh! Two had a scallop dish, wish they said was excellent, I had the swordfish which was absolutely delish and the fourth was a vegetarian who was looking forward to the soup we had read about online, which...

I had the swordfish and my husband ordered the salmon, as well as a brussel sprouts appetizer. All of the food was delicious! We really liked the atmosphere as well. The only negative was the very slow service.
