One of our favorite special occasion restaurants. This is a very consistent great choice for fine dining. For larger parties reserve their more private dining room. The staff has always been truthful, helpful , pleasant and attentive. The food is consistently outstanding.

This was the first date night my husband and I had after moving to Clearwater. My husband picked it, because it was ranked #1 on Trip Advisor, and we were not disappointed! The service and the food were exceptional. We started with the tuna tartar and foie gras and both were perfection. The server even brought us each a tasting... More

My wife and I went to Café Ponte on Saturday night for our anniversary. It had been recommended by a few of our friends. They were right, the food, service and atmosphere were first rate. We were there before 6:30pm, so we ordered the $36 prix fixe menu consisting of soup, salad, entre and dessert. I had the cobia and... More

Reservation was at 8 tonight. Was not seated till 8:20. Not so much as a bread crumb served by 8:45. When I questioned the server as to why she did not ask how I wanted my steak she said they all come medium. We threw up our hands and walked out. Not only that we were told that we could... More

We have dined here at least eight or nine times whenever we are back in Florida. It has always been an amazing experience. The staff have been well trained, from the greeters, to the seaters, to your designated server. Their level of experience in making you comfortable and relaxed is outstanding. Every dish we have been served comes with a... More

I love fish and have eaten it right off the boat from an Alaskan Cruise to a great dining establishment. This fish goes down as the best if not one of the best I have ever had. Lucky for me we are going there with our Dinner Club on 8/24 and I plan to get it again. It was so... More

We found Cafe Ponte when my wife's parents passed away last year. We have been there many times over the past 12 months and enjoyed every experience. Wonderful food, beautiful presentations, friendly wait staff in a beautiful setting. This is not your typical restaurant in this area and we appreciate them. We did get a start in June when trying...

What a pleasant surprise and what a wonderful place! Cafe Ponte.. just by doing a web search of lunch spots near me, I thought this would be a nice little cafe. We were welcomed warmly when we walked into this fabulous gem of a restaurant. This place was huge and beautiful. My favorite was the simple yet elegant Café Salad..... More

I love this restaurant! White linen table cloths, fine dining, great service, and a piano bar to boot! This is my fave place to go for special occasions, anniversaries, and birthdays. I used to live in Atlanta and miss big city life and this venue is fantastic. The food is coursed and it is amazing. The chef is on top... More
