A night to remember

I love this restaurant. Creative and exquisite food. Wonderful staff. Romantic setting or business dinner whatever you prefer. Mine was romantic and I loved every second of it. I will keep going back to this place. Romantic or business whatever the reason.

TripAdvisor has never let us down! Found this restaurant based on reviews only. We drove there through road construction and neighborhoods that looked a little questionable to find a strip mall with several restaurants. We walked in and were wowed! The services and food were the very best. Our server (Jeffrey) was great. I wish we could have thanked the... More

I found this restaurant thru Groupon. They had an advertised 6 course meal. We upgraded to their wine sampler (a different glass of wine with each course). That being said, I found this to be an excellent restaurant. Food was well prepared...I prefer medium rare...cooked to perfection. Service was excellent, ambiance...everything was beyond reproach. This is a "special occasion" restaurant... More

We did not expect the extraordinary dinner we had. Very good service and the mushroom soup to begin our meal only enhanced our appetite. Fantastic night.

We dined at Cafe Ponte for the first time last evening with 5 friends. Based on prior reviews and upscale prices, we had high expectations. To start, the wine I selected from the menu was no longer available by the glass (so take it off the menu!). From there until the main courses were served, all was as expected. Service... More

Love this place. It is the best restaurant on this side of Tampa Bay. Consistently great whether for lunch or dinner. Look for the groupon for the price fixed menu. It is a fabulous sampling of many of their signature dishes and the portions are plentiful. You can not go wrong with whatever you order. I have heard the owner... More

We have been to Cafe Ponte many times and we always have great service and the food is always over the top. We have done both the tasting menu and the main menu and seem to like the uniqueness and variety of the tasting menu best!

Cafe Ponte is a favorite not just on a personal level, but for all business related dinners. I was there again last week and it never disappoints! We had a party of 17 and the service and food was, as always, exceptional. We had an assortment of appetizers set up on a separate table which included gourmet pizzas, meats and... More
