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!

As visitors from Michigan, we recently dined at Bergamot with our grandson and his fiance who live in Somerville. What a fabulous and memorable dinner and evening! The service was impeccable without being intrusive. My wife ordered the gazpacho appetizer with crabmeat, I the house tomato salad. 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.

Had the pleasure of dining here for a business dinner. At first I was confused since it looked like it was in a fairly residential/quiet neighbourhood and the restaurant was only half full. By 8pm the place was packed and people were somewhat waiting at the bar for a table. The food was excellent. . I really like the Manhattan's... More

My friends and I did their tasting menu and it was the best. We tried this after having a great experience at BISQ, their sister company. Their food is so tasty and yummy. At first, it looks like they are small portion, but I was so full at the end. Their drinks are great as well. I highly recommend this... More

We first discovered Bergamot due to a Groupon coupon for their legendary 7-course meal. We haven't stopped going back since. The staff really do feel like family, taking time to learn about your life and cater to your tastes. Paul, the bartender, is my favorite in Boston, not only for his taste, but also for his sense of humor and... More
