I have friends that love this place and invited us for dinner. The atmosphere is very nice, however the food was just fine not excellent for the price they charge. I think is an OK place to eat however I was not impressed.

Went to a surprise birthday party at Cafe Ponte. We had heavy appetizers. Large lamb chops, barbaque short ribs, oystes on the half shell, foie gras, & flat bread. Everything was wonderful. Scott the server was very attentive. Would recommend.

If you are looking for a 5 star restaurant this is it. The service and the food were excellent. The wine selection superb but it is pricey but it is well worth the visit

We got the groupon for the 90 dollar tasting menu, and added the chef picked matching wine pours with each course, priced at 35 each person. The food is great and special, but with relatively small portion (not a problem for us). We particularly love the Tuscan steak with bone marrow on side, the greatest marrow we have had. Service...

Upscale restaurant with friendly, courteous service. The mushroom soup was a nice thickness, not too heavy on the cream. The pizza was on a thin crisp crust, with a nice blend of vegetables and herbs. The recommended white wine nicely complemented the meal. A definite return visit when I am back in Clearwater. Don'l let the fact that it is... More

Enjoyedy first visit so much decided to go back and was not disappointed. The sea bass in miso and lobster coconut curry was easily one of the best pieces of fish I've ever had. The mushroom bisque with truffle was delectable and Parma and date flat bread was a wonderful combination of salty and sweet. I had the fix price... More

We entered into a lovely atmosphere, however, it was freezing inside and six of us asked for a reduction of the cold, however it went unattended by the wait staff. Ordering was a bit of a challenge with the wait staff as our server seemed we were more of a bother , than a customer. Admittedly, the food was rather... More

We like independently chef owned restaurants, this one is one of the best! Last week, we tried the chef's tasting menu, a six course dinner. We started with goat cheese mousse complimented with house cured smoked salmon, very light and refreshing. Second course was a wonderful butternut squash soup, served with choices of bread (olive, onion, asiago cheese). Third course... More
