We got to go for two dinners 3 weeks apart. The first was during their seven year anniversary. It was more of a pre fix with more casual options. Each of the five of us selected different dishes. As always they were delicious. The service is always dependable and professional. We were given great wine suggestions. I had a really... More

One of the few restaurants where I can honestly not know some of the ingredients yet they make it so amazing I don't even question any of the menu. 5 years strong and getting stronger

Bergamont is an interesting experience. The food is exceptional, but the menu is extremely limited (5 entre's and 5 appetizers) with very small portions that left me hungry after the meal. The prices are high with an average of $35 per entre and $12 per side. The wait staff are very friendly and wonderful and made it a nice experience.... More

Have been meaning to review this place for a while now. Made my fourth visit this past month with family. Bergamot has a few things that set it apart from other American bistro types in the area. I consistently have at least one dish that surprises me and just might be one of the best things I've ever eaten. This... More

We went with my wife to entertain another couple for business. Reservatıon: We had wanted 7pm on Opentable which was unavailable and had to reserve for 6:45, but then saw many empty tables at 700-730 pm onward. Food: Excellent, lots of original combinations blended subtly, civilized portions. Drinks: Must try the amaros. Service: Service at table was very attentive and... More

Recently I was there with a friend, we had two appetizers of shrimps and mackerel and two entrees of scallop and perch. Each appetizer is $16 to $18. Each entree is $28 to $35. 3 shrimps and flakes of mackerel. Only 3 small to middle size scallops for the entree!! Feel like it was a rid off.

We had the Seven Course Chef’s Tasting Menu. Each one of the tastings was superb with the exception of escarole, which was drenched with vinegar, and the dessert, which was chocolate risotto - a bit too inventive. Most memorable was the meat ball wedding soup representing a marriage of tastes. Second most memorable was the ice cream sorbet. Great wine... More

I love restaurants that try to be innovative without losing site of the fact that they're in business to make a delicious meal. More often than not the latter is sacrificed on the altar of the former. (Still get a few stars for trying). The Bergamot tasting menu is clear evidence that you can be truly - almost wildly -...

It's been a while since we've been to Bergamot. We've always loved the space... since EVOO was there. The menu is a little different, and it seems like they've rearranged the floor a bit to squeeze in a few more tables. The good: The meats (beef and duck) for the entrees were extremely good, albeit one half-shade rarer than ordered.... More

We came here for a belated Valentine's Day dinner. We got the 3 course menu, for $46/ per person. Portions were small, yet filling. I don't think just an entree would have been enough food. Also, dessert was totally worth it. They also had cornbread muffins instead of table bread, of which we had seconds because it was so good... More
