We went for a Pre-holiday dinner with friends. I’d heard good things about Bergamot and was eager to try it. It didn’t disappoint but didn’t surprise either. From the sweetbreads to the beef and duck entrees to mousse, brûlée and cheese plate for dessert, the...More

Tried to get a 7 pm rez and was told only 6:15, so came then but the place never filled up. Waiter had a slight smugness and forgot our first course. The cheese tart thing was awful, weird, musty-flavored with a mallomar crust. Romaine salad...More

Wonderful evening celebration with my MIL, personal attention and amazing food. Well worth the cost for the 5 course tasting menu, all beautifully presented. Wait staff were helpful and informative without being cloying. Would love to try the wine pairings next time, definitely highly recommend

We went there as part of their LivingSocial deal for a five course chef tasting for $85, and is currently on their typical menu for $130. I'd say we got our money's worth with the deal, but would have certainly overpaid if we went there...More

We had a 5 course tasting menu that was fabulous. Not teeny tiny portions. Felt fully satisfied at the end. It's chef's choice, which was perfectly fine with us....really looking forward to returning!

We visited Bergamot with our friends, who live in the area and are regulars. Perhaps this meant that we got special treatment, but as I looked around, it seemed that everyone in the restaurant was getting the same sort of individual attention that we were....More

We have eaten at Bergamot maybe 15 times as it is very near our home. The cocktails are always excellent and the food is always excellent as well. We just had dinner there a few days ago just after they changed to an updated summer...More
