I really wanted to like this restaurant. Great space, love the name and love a prix fix menu--but the combination of flavors in the dishes we had just wasn't hitting the mark. We had the 7 course tasting menu- the soup course was a mushroom based soup that tasted like canned mushroom soup- the lamb dish was served with what... More

Came here thanks to a Christmas gift Groupon for the seven course tasting menu, which we complemented with the wine pairing. The place has a bistro-like pleasant ambiance, crowded but not too noisy to have a dinner conversation without raising your voice. We liked the service model. Over the course of the menu we had at least three guys serve... More

Our first visit to Bergamot last week-end met with praise all around. A cream of celery "Matignon" soup was tasty, and preceded a lamb entrée that I really enjoyed. Two of our group chose the Seared Scallops for the main course, and pronounced them wonderful. Excellent service and wine offerings. Convenient on-premises parking a real plus in this Somerville neighborhood.... More

We were here once before and were a bit disappointed, given the reviews, as the service was a bit rushed and the food, while good, was not that distinctive. However, we gave it another try during a week day night and an earlier time and had a totally different experience. The restaurant was not as crowded and the service, from... More

Exactly a year since last visited. Enjoyed it last time a lot. This time seemed different. Some of the waitstaff seemed uninterested and sullen. My gnocchi appetizer was great. The short rib main dish not so. It arrived cold and got colder and was not particularly tasty. It came across to me as folks going through the motions without commitment.

We had the 7 course tasting menu with the wine pairing and found all to our liking. The service was 5 star with the server very knowledgeable about the wines. In fact, one of the true highlights was the fact that the pairings were so spot on and complemented the courses so well. Heavily French in the wines with some... More

Overall, great food and good service combine for an excellent meal. We have been going to Bergamot for years and have never had a bad meal. The chef really knows how to make the ingredients shine. The style of the cooking is new American farm-to-table. Everything is fresh. The seasoning of the food is subtle, never overpowering. If you are... More

Absolutely disappointing. We were very disappointed after friends been there and highly recommended this restaurant. We chose the (prix fix) menu. The 3 courses at first were at best mediocre where there was a taste to the food but nothing extra ordinary that anybody can rave about. Then came the main courses, and that was a total disappointment. The food... More
