We've been here three or four times now and had a great meal everytime. I almost hate to write this as I don't want it to become more crowded. But we enjoy sitting together at the bar, eating off the bar menu and having a nice chat with the guys behind the bar. They are busy, but also friendly and fun. They make some great (expensive) drinks and in general the place is not cheap. But we do like it more than some places that we've paid more money at in the area.

We highly recommend Bergamot, but stay away from the bar to leave for us!

Dinner here was a really great experience. After a long day, it was nice to sit back relax and have some great food. The food was complex and fresh. The cocktail was delicious and the wine selection satisfying. The wait staff was attentive but not over bearing and the service was great.
The room does get a little loud and at times it made conversation a little strained.
Over all a good evening

My first time at Bergamot was last night, where my wife and I went in celebration of her 30th birthday. Everything about the experience was superb. The food was the clear highlight, and was stunning: creative, complex (but not overly so), composed of fresh and largely seasonal ingredients, and with strong but nicely balanced flavors and textures. The scallops were excellent and my wife's hake was crispy outside while exceptionally light and moist inside. The atmosphere is inviting and the service was friendly and prompt. Adding to our satisfaction with the whole experience was the price: the 3-course (appetizer, entree, and desert) fixed-price menu is $39. We're already looking forward to our next visit.

The service was very good. Everyone was nice. The food is generally good and imaginative but nothing we ate was something I would think was very special. The portions are on the smallish size which is generally fine with me but they come at a price that is high. The noise was high - hard to talk across the table about half the time we were there on a Friday night. Make sure with any meat to ask how they are going to cook it; we had lamb and without any warning it came raw (medium rare supposedly) and difficult to cut or chew. Otherwise the taste and delivery were very good. Beers are way overpriced - Unibroue for $12!
