We had the 3 course prix fixe, which was a good value and just the right amount of food. Everything was most creative and delicious. We are still raving still raving about the dinner several days after. Service was friendly and prompt by a team of waitstaff. They do the small things well - asking to replenish your (excellent rustic)... More

My husband and I purchased a 7 course chef's tasting dinner from Groupon, and it was delicious. The portions are very small, and at first I was a little put off by it, but as the dinner went on I realized that they were perfectly sized. By the end we were completely full. Service was excellent, and so were the... More

Bergamot is a top notch restaurant. First off the atmosphere was very nice and our waitress was very friendly and down to earth. We had a three course meal, oysters to start (local & fresh), main course & desert. Everything my wife and I had was excellent. Here was the best part. We had a true fine dining experience without...

Excellent inventive menu - consistently delicious - with wonderful "amuse bouches" to tickle your palate. Friendly, knowledgeable staff and an extensive wine list and super bar tenders. If you want a "lighter" menu, get there early for a seat at the bar - yummy grilled cheese and lobster sandwich my favorite. Our favorite "neighborhood" eatery always requested by our out... More

Bergamot is one of the gems in the local restaurant scene. You enter to a warm welcome and a dining room set with lovely tablecloths, sparkling glassware, and staffed by professionals who either remember you or are savvy enough to check the computer for your preferences before they greet you. The food is consistently excellent. I particularly like the tasting... More

My husband and I enjoyed the 7 course tasting menu at the Bergamot this fall. For me, a tasting menu is heaven. I prefer a taste of many items, over one large plate. In addition, I prefer quality and presentation over quantity. So, if you are the type that would prefer some of the more ridiculously oversized portions of so-so... More

We are always delighted every time we revisit Bergamot. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable, with a slight hipster vibe that never approaches snarky. Wonderful wine list and inventive cocktails that deliver - never novelty just for its own sake. One nice option is the 3 course prix fixe. Portions are just right, and each course holds its own, including dessert,... More

Very fine quality, inventive cuisine. And I don't need a heaping plate of food, but the soup was a smear on the bowl so small I could no even scoop up one full spoon. The entrées were all the same in our group. Three scallops and perhaps three halves of brussel sprouts. Dessert was the same. There was so little... More
