I recently had the opportunity to eat at Cafe Pont on a recommendation from Yelp. I was looking for a dining experience that combined excellent service from the front of the house with superb service from the kitchen. Cafe Pont did not disappoint my server Ken walked me through the menu and provided wonderful food choices along with appropriate wine... More

If heaven was all about food then Cafe Ponte is heaven on earth. Incredibly delicious - service suburb and classic atmosphere with melodious pianist sounds stretching to Boston. In one word: heavenly!

We came here for a company dinner, party of 12. We were seated exactly on time. The waiter was awesome. The recommendations were perfect. There was an allergy at the table that was handled perfectly. Will be back again.

We were fortunate to get a seating for New Year's Eve. A very pleasant welcome seemed to be typical of the staff overall, and they were all interested in providing for us, without fawning or obsequy. Once seated, there was a six course tasting menu, which looked very tempting, but we all opted for ordering from the menu. Among us,... More

So I have eaten both lunches and dinners at Cafe Ponte. The Chef/Owner is Chris Ponte and was trained in France as Cordon Bleu chef. Lunch prices start at $10 and dinners around $25. Nothing is basic from the incredible sandwiches and pizza for lunch to the varied dinner menu of so many deductibles. The wild mushroom soup is to... More

If our Christmas list consisted of delicious tastes of quality cuisine, our catalog of choice would be Cafe Ponte's menu. We dined w a 6 person party , and it was a special family night of reunions and celebrating being together. C.P had a crucial role in creating an inviting, elegant atmosphere for us and they executed the job seamlessly.... More

I bought the groupon to try out a local restaurant that many people have raved about. It's location is a little odd being in a strip shopping center but once you step inside it's got a beautiful decor. I had the Fall 6 course tasting menu. It was good. The soup and salad courses were very good. I loved the... More

We had an excellent meal here. It is a fancy, white table cloth restaurant in a strip mall. The menu was quite exciting. We shared an outstanding fig and prosciutto flat-bread that was way too big as an appetizer. My wife enjoyed a good Bolognese pasta and I the bouillabaisse. We shared a wonderful caramel chocolate tart. With 2 glasses... More
