Absolutely delicious courses of the best ingredients! Each course was beautifully presented and was a feast to the eyes as well as the tummy. This is a lovely treat to celebrate a special occasion but come hungry as you will be very full by course number six!!
Can not recommend this restaurant enough as we have never been disappointed.

I have been to this establishment on several occasions.This was a wonderful experience each time . The tasting menu is available at different times of the year and specialize in seasonal vegetables, fish, and meats, Their homemade mushroom bisque and burnt caramel ice cream were delicious as well as the Chilean Sea Bass and the short ribs we had as entrees on our last visit . Chef Ponte did some training in France and the food and presentation is superb! My husband does not care for "fancy dishes" or vegetables and loved every dish we ordered. Our server was also very attentive and made sure we were well taken care of. I highly recommend this restaurant for a special evening.

Love the way the Chilean Sea bass is prepared here. Have attended a few pharmaceutical dinners here and they do a great job. Excellent private room for presentations. Excellent service

I have been coming here for years on all special occasions or when I had visitors. Went for my birthday this week and was very disappointed. Menu needs serious updating because has not changed for quite awhile. An example is the prix fixed menu still serving the same kale salad (so over it) and an over priced lobster dish with virtually no taste of lobster. If this restaurant is not updated, it will lose its reputation. Please Chris fix this place.

A must experience. Cafe Ponte hits on every level. Ambiance, service, and food oh the food. This is fine dining at it's best where you can feel casual or formal while experiencing amazing cuisine. Everything was wonderful. Can't wait to return.
