Very overpriced with poor service. Though The LN`s Caesar Salad has always been very good, this time it was much too salty and literally drenched with dressing. One of our party ordered the Chicken Salad which she said was awful. All that to say that what used to be one of Burlington`s premier restaurants no longer is.

The Lord Nelson on Plains Road has been in business since 1974 and it continues to provide a very high level of food and service. Our party of 10 all had various dishes all of which were excellent. The prices are very high end but very good value.

Two of us went to Lord Nelson for dinner last night. We reserved a table for 7pm but arrived early. We were seated right away at a table for four. It was set very elegantly, with nice white table cloth, monogrammed wine goblets, monogramed napkins and cutlery. The seats were very comfortable, perhaps leaned back a bit too much, but... More

We have been going to the Lord Nelson for decades and the service is always impeccable! Nick is there most nights but regardless the regular staff are there to make everyone experience a special one. The food is fabulous! We go several times a year for birthday celebrations, girls nights, and family events when we reserve the back room. We... More

Nothing as it used to be. Many unpleasant remarks made by unfriendly waiter, horrible service and food is no longer up to par.

We have dined at this restaurant for more than 35 years, and have used it as our "go to" for fine dining. I am sorry to say it is not what it used to be. It seems like the new management style is more hipster than elegant. The music is louder than necessary. Prices have gone up and it is... More

I've been going to this restaurant for many years. I used to love this place but I've regretted going there the two last times. The man serving us was very rude and complaining about his job the whole time. It ruined our dining experience. Other people were also not impressed by his appalling behaviour. The ceasar salad made by table... More

It was an incredible dinner, and the staff was so nice. After eating our fantastic food, we just went and relaxed at the bar for a few more drinks. Very nice place. Big fan of their caesar salad!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We didn't order the steak which I think they are probably more known for the steak and seafood rather we ordered veal parmesan. Veal was burnt around the edges and was topped with cheddar cheese?? We mentioned to our waiter about the burnt edges and he had our desserts comped. Had the caprese salad as an appitizer and it lacked... More
