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

Great food, nice ambiance and an exhaustive wine list. The restaurant was full on a Sunday night which provided a great ambiance!

Both were outstanding, For the main course, my wife enjoyed swordfish medallions, I... More

I've been to Bergamot a number of times over the past two years. Everything I've eaten there is delicious and creative. Sometimes it's hard to order because there is such a list of ingredients that it's hard to imagine what a combination of all those flavors would taste like, but you're pretty well assured that what they've put together will...

Don't let the classy old fashion atmosphere mislead you. This place has some unique and even brave delicious flavors. The swordfish cabob with yemmen schug, the surprising tomatoes salad were very unique. The smoked shrimp was good. So although it has no atmosphere (and no music. And too much light. And I so expect to enjoy atmosphere at their price)... More

We were first timers at Bergamot to celebrate our 35th. The food was very good, the service was attentive, friendly and helpful and the vibe in the room was great. The "bacon and eggs" appetizer was tasty and fun. We had cod and sea bass, both cooked perfectly. The desserts were quirky but tasty. We will return.

This small eatery is worth a visit. The staff are attentive and friendly without being over the top. They serve a good selection of pre dinner cocktails and the food is competent though desert was a bit of a let down after a reasonably good meal.

Thank Papoon
