We had lunch and the food was very good. It was a lovely, little place. The service is a bit slow, so don't go if you are in a hurry.

Food at this restaurant was superb. Everything is made in house and we were lucky enough to meet the owner who was charming and so very proud of his great restaurant. We opted to sit outside, however the chairs were not comfortable and there was some road noise but it did not detract from the excellent experience we had. I... More

The service and food were fantastic! The atmosphere was great! Love the fireplace, and the owner was extremely friendly and helpful. The serving sizes are filling, but you really want to save room for some desert.

Had a wonderful lunch outdoors on a beautiful afternoon in June. I had a great sandwich of pulled pork, and salad. My partner had a great looking, and tasting salad. Clean eating area, with friendly people all around. Our waitress was great, mentioning the daily specials. Very friendly staff!

Great creations from local ingredients. Really fantastic blending/s. I actually ate a vegetarian meal without missing my usual proteins. Staff is friendly and professional. If you are lucky enough to meet the owner/chef, you will understand where the creativity comes from.

4 of us stopped in for a quick drink and some baked goods. We were immediately seated in a lovely area and ordered. Drinks were fine and baked goods delicious. Now the hard part: At the bottom of the menu it states that an 18 percent service charge is automatically added to parties of 4 or more. That's all it... More

We had a wonderful dinner here, food was excellent. Just note, the restaurant is BYOB so if you're interested in beer or wine, plan to bring your own (which they happily accommodate). I also had the best chocolate chip cookie I've ever had here (yes, that good!!). I would like to return for more baked goods :)

We had lunch here and found it to be a really nice, comfortable restaurant. I had a grilled romaine lettuce salad (never had that before!) and it was terrific!!

My first trip here for lunch and not disappointed! My mom had the quiche of the day with salad and I had a nut and berry salad. Very unique menu with a Puerto Rican flare. Reasonable prices and good service. BYOB with no corking fee, which makes the meal even more affordable. Call ahead as seating is limited.

At Ponce we specialize in Exquisite Fusion Cuisine. Start the day with a perfect crema latte and flaky French crossaint. By noon the lavendar goat cheese salad beckons, followed by a home brewed cup of chai and our famous chocolate chip cookies. Finally the day is complete over a relaxing candlelight dinner of salmon tarragon bisque and tenderly broiled raspberry chipotle skirt steak, accompanied by a favorite Cabernet that you brought with you.
