Great dinning in Tampa Bay

Cafe' Ponte is one of the best restaurants in the bay area. The food and service are definitely worth a visit. Their signature mushroom bisque is a must. The charcuterie platter doesn't disappoint.

This was hands-down the best, most fancy restaurant that I have ever eaten at in a shopping center- it was basically a strip mall, which I found bizarre. However, the food was truly fantastic. I went when I was on vacation, and I'd definitely come here again, next time I find myself in Clearwater again.

Cafe' Pointe is one of the best restaurants in Clearwater. Excellent chef, sophisticated menu and customer oriented servers. The restaurant is small enough for romantic dinners and can accommodate business lunches. Cafe Pointe is a favorite to take guests for dinner; as well as our romantic restaurant. Definitely a five-star dining experience.

Café Ponte is located on Ulmerton in Clearwater. This is a little deceiving because most people would avoid this place after business hours since it in in an industrial/business area. However, forget about the location and really go for the food! The menu has a $35 pre fixe menu between 5:30nd 6:30 which is great if you plan to eat... More

The food was good, (not great like it used to be) albeit beautifully presented and we had an attentive waiter. We have been several times for the Groupon Tasting Menu over the years, (as well as special occasion dinners) and always opt for the wine tasting option that adds a 3 oz pour, chef/ sommelier selected to enhance each course...

Let me start off by saying the food was good. Service was the worst I've seen. Made the food seem irrelevant. The waiters added food and drinks to the bill. Overcomplicated the charges in order to get tip, and whenever you brought up the conflict, the waiters would have a huge attitude. There are plenty of nice places in the... More

This is about our fifth visit and we find the service and food to be exceptional. We use a Groupon for the Tasting Menu and we have never been disappointed with the experience. We had the six course Tasting, along with a bottle of Malbec. Each course is described in detail as it's served which adds to the foodie charm.... More

This restaurant had excellent reviews in many places, but my wife and I found it pretentious and just good, but certainly NOT worth the money.

We had reservations for 6:30 but arrived at 6:20 and were delighted when the waitress gave us the option of the four course prix fixe dinner for $33 per person. It is available from 5:30 to 6:30 and well worth eating a little early as dinner here will last two hours. Several "blocks" of restaurants and doctor's offices fill most... More
