    My partner and I went to Burdock for our 4th anniversary and it was the perfect spot for us. We went for the beers and were blown away by the food. I had the burger and he had the gnocchi - both fantastic! But the highlight was definitely the lemon ricotta donuts we had for dessert, which were unbelievable. We will definitely be coming back and recommending this place to friends!

    We always enjoy our time at the Burdock! The good is great, service is excellent. The only downside is that the music and ambient noise is so loud you barely hear your table conversation. If possible opt for the outside patio.

    I thought it was a decent dining experience. Service was a bit too attentive for liking, I was catching up with an old friend and the waiter kept interrupting our conversation, it got a bit too much. The food was fine but nothing extraordinary, the steak was a bit too well done and salty but honestly I shouldn’t have ordered it to begin with, this is not a place for a great steak. The beers are the big standouts here, they are amazing!

    Food was great but service was so so. They took away our menus before asking if we wanted to eat (we went at dinner time). They also didn't take away empty glasses which was necessary with the tiny tables. For a brewery there should be more range in beer choices and more non-alcoholic options aside from just sparkling water (even the kombucha wasn't available). I'll go back because we've had better experiences in the past.

    The streak frites dish needs to indicate that the meat will be rare-medium on the menu. My partner and I didn't know that and we don't eat raw meat. When we asked to cook it a bit more, the waitress mentioned that it can't be done for some reason. Other than that, the fries were great.
