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...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...More

I really wanted to like this restaurant. Great space, love the name and love a prix fix menu--but the combination of flavors in the dishes we had just wasn't hitting the mark. We had the 7 course tasting menu- the soup course was a mushroom...More

Came here thanks to a Christmas gift Groupon for the seven course tasting menu, which we complemented with the wine pairing. The place has a bistro-like pleasant ambiance, crowded but not too noisy to have a dinner conversation without raising your voice. We liked the...More

Our first visit to Bergamot last week-end met with praise all around. A cream of celery "Matignon" soup was tasty, and preceded a lamb entrée that I really enjoyed. Two of our group chose the Seared Scallops for the main course, and pronounced them wonderful....More

We were here once before and were a bit disappointed, given the reviews, as the service was a bit rushed and the food, while good, was not that distinctive. However, we gave it another try during a week day night and an earlier time and...More

Exactly a year since last visited. Enjoyed it last time a lot. This time seemed different. Some of the waitstaff seemed uninterested and sullen. My gnocchi appetizer was great. The short rib main dish not so. It arrived cold and got colder and was not...More

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...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....More

Robert M: Bergamot has a parking lot. It's not just street parking. The parking lot is rather extraordinary for the area. It's to the side of the building that includes the business to the left when you are facing the restaurant.
