Best in Provincetown
We are locals and Crowne Pointe has become our new favorite restaurant. The food is great and our waiters have been wonderful. They also have a great spa!

Interesting Menu/ excellent Food!
We went with friends on a Thursday night .. A little off season.
My chive gnocchi with lobster meat was excellent. My husbands fillet mignon
was also well prepared. He felt a bit more mashed potatoes would
have been good. Our friend loved her soft shelled crab.
We had fun talking with our table neighbors John and his wife.
Sorry we didn't pick up your tab!!
Our waitress " Oh Denise" did an excellent job as well.

Great place, I do recommend
Booked a table for 2 without knowing a thing about the place nor Provincetown and...we loved it! The place is really nice, the service is perfect. We got there earlier than expected, sat at the bar with a cocktail and chatted with the bartender (owner?), almost forgetting we came for diner... :-) Menu is great, revisiting local products in a way you wouldn't expect, along with a nice wine list (being french, I was more than happy to see what they serve). I think they play in a higher league than the rest of the restaurants in PTown.

High Points at the Pointe
Had the escargot and lobster mac/cheese for apps...delicious and well presented. Both of us had the filet mignon and they were deliciously prepared. Desert was excellent as well. would recommend to all.

Will be back
First time diner, service, ambiance and food quality was VERY goog. Regret I only visit P Town once a year, will recommend your fine restaurant .

Special occaision nicely done.
The enclosed porch dining with a view of the Pilgrim Monument gives the place a special feel. The wait staff is very eager to please and is friendly but professional. New to us was the use of an iPad to show the featured menu specials and the desserts. Since you can see a picture of the food offerings it makes ordering easy. Our entrees, some pastas, some beef and some fish were all excellent. It's nice that you can order a smaller portion of some of the entrees if you wish. The desserts were very good too.

We went to Crown Point twice.
We went to Crown Point twice. The first time just us two and then with an older friend. The diningroom and the enclosed porch are lovely. I had halibut which was delicious, but I left wondering if it had been frozen at some point. The next time the special was short rib with a demi- glaze sauce. It was outstanding. The service couldn't have been any better. We had help from Jeff with parking because our friend was disabled, and our waiter was polite and efficient. They also have an early bird buy one get 1/2 off the second entree. One negative, Tthe bar area is very small and the live lobster tank in it was very disturbing to me.

Great food, mehhh service.
Servers seemed a little disorganized and food took a long time to arrive.

Outstanding Dinining at The Pointe
This neighborhood gem is sometimes overlooked when thinking about dining in Provincetown. I was happily reconnected with my outstanding dining experience at The Pointe. The seasoned staff greeted me once I walked in and I must say the bar area is more lively with that friendly gentleman behind the bar. The food was perfect and I must say the halibut was outstanding! There are so many places in town that serve lesser quality food at higher prices, The Pointe is right on the budget. I wasn't going to order a dessert but when the "virtual dessert tour" made it's way to our table I was pleasantly surprised how my mind changed so quickly. The Pointe is doing something special this year, go check it out!

Cute restaurant, good food and a great staff. Best steak in town.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food vs. service
The restaurant's atmosphere and food was excellent. Nonetheless, I found our waitress to be a bit standoffish. Considering the tourism industry blossoming in P'Town, she should have been able to be comfortable with various cultures and disabilities. She was nervous around us; we had another woman come who was down to earth and friendly serve us some, before the nervous Nellie came back with the check. Being our polite selves, we gave her 20% tip even though she did not deserve it. My advice - cultural training for staff members.
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Exactly what we needed
After a couple of days in town, we were ready to leave the bright colors and flair behind and enjoy a peaceful, romantic dinner. The service was top notch and the lamb and sea scallops were excellent. Wines were perfectly matched to our meals. Would highly recommend.

Reminded me of the 80"s "Gourmet menus". Portions size small but you'll savor every bite. I would definitely return. Just don't
bring guests with hearty appetites.
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
We ate here our first night in Provincetown and it happened to also be my birthday. It is relaxed atmosphere but The food was excellent from the starter to the dessert and coffee and our server was attentive and fun. We would definitely go back!
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love this place!
The Pointe has never let me down. Food is always excellent and service top notch. Have gone with my family of four (two teenagers) and have brought my mom for her birthday. Will always return to the Pointe when I'm in Provincetown!
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Get to the Point!
From start to finish The Point was the highlight of several wonderful days in P Town. Welcoming, cozy, outstanding on every level. Great food, excellent service, wonderful wine list, and unequaled ambience. At the top of our list for restaurants to visit again.
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had no idea where to eat the first night of our weekend getaway. Found this restaurant in local magazine and also saw it was on Open Table with availability for the time we were looking for. Great ambiance! Food, drinks & service were all fantastic. Thank you!
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
I've paid a lot more for food on this level. Overall I thought the food was very good, for the price it is excellent. The service and ambience made for a great romantic dinner.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
A gem in Provincetown
We were all completely satisfied with this Open Table choice. All four of us enjoyed out meals from the bread to the dessert. The service was just at the right times and we were impressed with the way the waiter showed us an i-pad picture of the special menu choices and the desserts. We can't wait to make another visit to The Pointe!
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lovely romantic dinner
My partner and I have come here for "date night" three years in a row, and we've never been disappointed. Most recently, I had a lovely and generous piece of halibut, perfectly prepared. He had mussels in a dijon mustard sauce. Nice wine selection, and very nice, attentive service. Lovely atmosphere, with a view of Pilgrim Tower.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Elegant & Classy Joint!
The owner Sean, orig from South Africa is also a great bartender and host with the most! We have been dining here every year for the past 5 years and it only gets better! Traditional elegance meets modern day where the staff presents daily specials in real time with hi-def pics of the food on iPads! The Crowne Point is also a very nice Inn & Spa.
8/14/2013 5:00:00 PM
Excellent Dining Experience
The Pointe was highly recommended on this site. I could not agree more with the review. We had a cozy table on the porch with a great view of the Town. I wish I could remember the name of our server (we were there on August 17), but he could not have been better.
The meal started with hummus made with white beans. It was excellent served with equally good bread. My wife had a short rib dish which literally fell off the bone.
This was our first visit, but we will surely return.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice place atop the hill
We were seated on the porch with a view of the rooftops of Provincetown and of the lovely flowers on the lawn of the Inn that houses the restaurant. Lovely. The food was likewise good making for a lovely evening. Nice place away from the hubbub of Commercial Street.
8/22/2013 5:00:00 PM
Lovely night and view from
Lovely night and view from the porch. Although the menu was not "kid friendly" and we have kids who like to go out, the staff and restaurant were very accommodating!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have a severe nut allergy
I have a severe nut allergy and am always nervous about trying new restaurants, but was very satisfied with the waitress checking on everything for me. It was a little weird that they couldn't guarantee that the clam chowder was safe (I guess they don't make it in house, which is a little weird being on Cape Cod) but I would rather have them rule something out if they can't guarantee it is safe for me to eat.
Aside from that, the rest of the food was very good. I would recommend to anyone.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always reliable cuisine
The food is always great; an intimate location at the top of the hill makes for a potentially romantic evening. Service can be shotty and proprietor a bit attitudinal - however the ambiance and excellent chef makes up for it all.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Welcoming & Delicious
My husband and I went there for a romantic dinner... with our 7 mo. old. She still does well in restaurants, but this restaurant is for adults, i.e., the tables are close together and the atmosphere is quiet, so if she got fussy we risked ruining the experience for others. However, the hostess & wait staff made us feel welcome. They were kind to our baby and treated us like any other diner on a special night out. We appreciated it. Overall a delicious dinner and lovely, welcoming, relaxing environment. And the lounge is adorable. I would have loved to have cocktail there if we did not have our baby.
8/29/2013 5:00:00 PM
What a great surprise!
We were pleasantly surprised at this neighborhood bistro...located next to the Pointe Guesthouse, there is a small indoor dining room and another small dining area on a screened in porch with a wonderful view of town and the Pilgrim's Monument. Service was impeccable here and we really liked the use of iPads by the servers to go over the specials-it helped to have a picture to go with the verbal description. I had the 2lb fresh whole lobster-one of the best lobster dishes I have ever tasted-cooked perfectly and more than filling. My partner had the filet-it was good-just a tad bit overcooked from the medium requested but otherwise delicious. Cocktails were made perfectly and tasted wonderful.
8/29/2013 5:00:00 PM
After reading all these raves, we were looking forward to this place. All was good - maybe some were even very good. But overall I still found it a bit bland and dated. Red wine list had mainly entry level reds - fairly priced and good, but nothing to make this a destination for those who want a great wine with dinner. Space between the tables a plus.
8/30/2013 5:00:00 PM
What a perfect place ....
Food, Service and Ambience were amazing. From the start (Truffled Popcorn) to the end (Red Velvet Cake), we experienced nothing but pure culinary perfection! This is our new favorite Resturant in P-Town.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Once again - this place is the best
This is my all time fav in P'town - the food is always great and they make a good drink The other night I took my sister and her friend for the first time and they are now hooked - couldn't believe how absolutely wonderful it was.We chatted with the couple next to us and they loved it as much as we did and also come all the time. They are doing something right and I sure hope they do it for years to come
9/3/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great fine dining in P-town
Off the Commercial St. crazyness, the current incarnation of The Pointe is an excellent choice for a quiet fine-dining option in P-town. Food was so well prepared, not fussy, and nicely plated. Service was knowledgeable and professional, wines well priced.
It was off-season, so not terribly busy; we were in and out in an hour, but didn't have dessert. Definitely recommended, but we understand that there is often turnover of chef's so we don't know how long this review will be meaningful/
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Ponte is one of our favorites
Best for everything. Service, food, view ambience. We travel 1 1/2 hours at least once a year to eat here.
Whether your in the area on vacation or taking a field trip for the day, go to The Pomte.
9/6/2013 5:00:00 PM
Everything was wonderful.
We will tell friends about it.
We will definitely return.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Pointe always superb!
As always, the Pointe was fantastic. This is really one of the true gems of Provincetown that is not in the center of town. Located in the beautiful Crowne Pointe resort this is NOT your typical "hotel restaurant". The ambience is fantastic affording magnificent views of the Pilgrim Monument. The food is what you would expect from some of the finest restaurants in Boston, New York, Chicago, or Los Angeles. The service is impeccable with great casual waitstaff who are always ready and willing to make wonderful suggestions...even "cautiously" steering people away from certain offerings (a good thing in my opinion). As "locals" this is one of our favorite venues...sometimes overlooked by others which means we are always able to get in!!
9/9/2013 5:00:00 PM
To the Pointe
I have been going to my time share at Provincetown for 0ver 30 years and usually go to dinner once or twice during my week. I always go to Front Street and Napis and am never disappointed but this year my friend Ann and I wanted to try a new place. We look at the reviews on Open Table and decided that The pointe was the one to Try. We were not disappointed by the point and have a great meal with a great waiter and a wonderful view of the Pilgrim monument. The only problem that I have is now when I come again next year I have to make tough decisions about which of the 3 not to go to, maybe we will dine out 3 times instead of twice...
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Pointe lives up to its's hype.
The service and ambience were excellent. The atmosphere was relaxed and yet it felt elegant. We were dressed casually and did not feel out of place. It was a value as the prices were fair for the excellent food..
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Pointe has become one of my favorite restaurants in P'town. The service is friendly without being cloying. The food is well prepared and unpretentious. I enjoyed 2 delicious Margaritas instead of wine with my dinner this time.
& though the prices are reasonable, because it's basically a la carte, the tab winds up being high, making this a special occasion venue.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
I loved the ipad presentation of food.
I had the lobster gnocchi....delicious
Loved the way the calamari was cut...nice small circles
Husband had the tuna tartare....great presentation of it and ALL the foods
And the deserts were to die for as was the coffee.
Once we tried it we came back and will be back again next year.
Keep up the great work.
P.S. servers were great. And thank the chefs for us.
9/21/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great Evenng at the Pointe!
Our waiter, Dave, was exceptional- friendly and attentive, but not intrusive! Food was delicious, as well! All in all, a wonderful dinner!
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great meal
Second time coming here. Always great service and food. The enclosed deck was a little too warm and we had to move inside. But food was great
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great for Special Occasions
We came here the night I got engaged to my girlfriend, and it was absolutely perfect. They congratulated us and gave us a glass of champagne, then the real fun started.... the food. The lobster Mac & cheese was perfect- a nice light cheese, not the heavy gross chunky stuff, with a generous portion of lobster. Then even better - a two pound lobster! Perfectly cleaned and presented, and unbelievably fresh. Don't miss out! If you are in Provincetown, come to this restaurant.
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
I drove/walked by this restaurant for years and FINALLY went in for dinner. It was DELICIOUS! The view of the monument was awesome at night on the porch, and the menu was wonderful! I will surely be going back next time I'm in Ptown!
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Pointe delivers
As always, the Pointe has amazing food. 7:30 seating. The special Lobster Mac n cheese was amazing. The Steak Frites was outstanding. Having been cooked medium, it was amazingly tender and juicy. The service was a rare off-night. Asked our greeter for water with lemon. Didn't produce. Our service started with Anthony and then Michael. Had to ask Michael for lemon which he then brought. He seemed quite the energetic fellow, bouncing here and there. Maybe because it was the buy one entree, second one free night. Regardless, the Pointe is amazing as is the Crowne Pointe.

Great Sunday special
We went to The Pointe Restaurant on Sunday for the Italian night special and we're not disappointed. A steal at only $15.95 for a salad app and pasta main.
Wine list was extensive and service was very friendly but not overbearing.
Great little place with a fireplace to warm you up with a great view of the Pilgrim Monument.
This is our new 'go to spot' this winter.

A last minute Find
The Pointe was a last minute decision at the end of a rainy dreary day.
The food was excellent and presented beautifully. We tried specialty cocktails and were tastefully surprised.
Parmesan Risotto, Buffalo Chicken Meatballs, Roasted Asparagus, Chicken Tagliatelle Pasta all were delicious and sufficient.
Our waitress had a great rapport with all the patrons on the porch that night and there was even a little communal talk about babies and breastfeeding!! She was very helpful describing foods to us.
We had an enjoyable dinner and would definitely return next visit to P-town.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was, by far, the best dinner I have eaten in Provincetown in years. Kudos!!! Loved the food and atmosphere.

Outrageously great!! Totally
Outrageously great!! Totally unexpected. Can't wait to return. Please folks, let's keep this one a secret amongst friends.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
We were fortunate to sit in front of the roaring fire. Our waiter was great, super friendly and recommended a nice wine for me. Food was great, overall a wonderful experience. Will go back for sure.
