    A local favorite and with good reason. The chef and help in the kitchen clearly care about making and serving exquisite meals with seasonally appropriate ingredients. Another very good meal here again the other night with friends and everyone was more than happy with their appetizers, entrees and desserts. Two of us opted for the specials on the Sunday night "Italian menu" and two ordered from the regular menu. The soups, bruchetta and salads were very good, the entrees bordered on or exceeded exquisite and the desserts were devine, especially the house made pumpkin spice ice cream. I still don't like the iPad picture presentation of the dessert menu, but it must work or they wouldn't do it. (The desserts actually look and taste much better than their iPad pictures and I've never understood why, if they do this, they don't just have an in house network where the patrons can simply vie the menu with pictures on their own devices or just have an iPad at the table for patrons to use since the server pesentation of the dessert menu pictures and items feels awkward and cumbersome. How about having the person who made each item present it in 15 second or less video clip instead -- that the patrons could view?)

    First visit to PTown and chose this restaurant based on TripAdvisor reviews. Although we were a little late and it was very busy the table had been kept for us. Good food, good service, however just a little too dimly lit for our personal taste. However I would certainly recommend this place to others.

    Warm and inviting atmosphere with a nice view of the Pilgrim Monument. Wait staff were prompt and attentive without being overbearing. I had the pork tenderloin and butternut ravioli-a great fall dish- pork a bit bland but the ravioli was terrific. Only 1 vegetarian (tofu) dish on the menu, would be nice to have had more choices. Nice wine list.

    With a perfect view of the flag flying at the base of the nite lit Pilgrim monument the Pointe restaurant certainly scored with the view. Who wants to look at water in the dark? The friendly staff and management offered great tips on their wine and dinner options, some of which we had never heard of before. No rush but hard not to consume the tasty fare at a fast rate! Certainly look to return in the future. Do use Open Table or you might not get a spot at this popular venue.

    After having spent my first full summer in Ptown running a new business, my husband and I celebrated here. Neither of us had been before or really knew much about it. What a delightful surprise when it turned out to be the best dining experience we've ever had in Ptown! The ambiance is lovely, with glorious views of the Monument. The staff could not have been any nicer or more professional. And for the first time all summer, the quality of the food actually matched the prices being charged. The choices were varied and interesting. Dishes actually felt special and made by a real chef, rather than the same old same old you get overcharged for almost everywhere else in town. Obviously we highly recommend this restaurant!!

    Chose to go here for a romantic evening during our Cape visit. Restaurant is small, but cozy feeling. Sat out on the closed in patio with a view of the Pilgram monument and the garden. Little toasty temperature wise, but it had been a chilly day. Boyfriend had the rib special which was amazing! I had the roasted chicken which was also very good.

    This has been our second consecutive year at The Pointe. It is a romantic, special occasion destination for us and once again did not disappoint. There are subtleties to making it 5 stars - in the service (a training shadow with the waiter and a waiter wearing a Michael nametag asking to be called Dave - frankly, no name tags necessary), the attention to detail (a dirty iPad screen with the specials - we were the first evening customers), and the portion sizing (for the price - the portioning was quite small and therefore an expensive menu selection) that were missing, but it is still better than so many other destinations in PTown. Would return, but would always look for those items to improve.

    We dined last Saturday at the Pointe restaurant on Bradford Street in Provincetown MA and we were rewarded as we were last year when we dined there. September is off season and we were seated with a great view of the Pilgrim Monument. We had wild mushroom ravioli which was excellent and coconut shrimp which was crunchy and perfect.

    Our family (3 adults) had dinner at The Pointe on a weekday night in September. We had a lovely time and we were very happy with the food and the setting. Through large windows it is possible to see the lights and landmarks of the town. The lobster ravioli were tasty and light, and both the chicken and lamb dishes were excellent. The service was top of the line and the atmosphere was jovial and cheerful without being noisy. It was our first time at The Pointe and we would definitely recommend it.

    We celebrated our anniversary by dining at The Pointe. Our whole experience was outstanding. The service was friendly, attentive, and well-informed. It was hard to choose from the interesting menu. Our meal was absolutely delicious. The tuna tartare with a smidge of caviar was wonderful. Our fish was perfectly cooked and the sides well chosen. We were also surprised that our check was so reasonable.

    My boyfriend and I were looking for a delicious and romantic spot to enjoy dinner on our recent vacation and the Pointe was perfect. The view overlooking Provincetown was gorgeous at sunset. We sat out on the porch which I would highly recommend. The appetizers (we shared the special summer salad and the calamari) were very flavorful. The entrees- halibut and lobster gnocchi were presented quite nicely, tasted excellent, and the gnocchi came with big pieces of fresh lobster which was a plus. I also really enjoyed the special white wine blend they had from Napa. We will definitely return to the Pointe on our next vacation, met our requirements of fit for foodies, romantic, great views, and easily accessible without driving.

    First of all let me say that the food was better than ever. The tuna was to die for and my friends loved their halibut and cod. Our server was also up to your usual standards. However the hostess seemed to want us to move on quickly. Two of the plates were whisked off the table without asking before the third was finished. Then we ordered dessert and coffee and my friend had a coffee drink. She was about 2/3 finished when all of a sudden the hostess also whisked that away. When we mentioned she was not done she gave us a glaring look and brought her back a quarter of a cup of plain coffee. Since I had brought them to you for the first time - I was embarresed. I am sure that was an aberation but just wanted to mention it to you

    We went to the Pointe for a late night dinner. The restaurant itself is quaint and well appointed. The food was mediocre, but the service was truly awful. The first thing we ran into was a bartender with attitude. He seemed to think that everyone should know the ingredients to a certain cocktail. Although we were early for our reservation, we were kept waiting beyond the reservation time while other guests were seated. Our waitress ignored us most of the time we were there, and the lamb chops that my wife ordered were not cooked to specifications. I ordered the grass fed hamburger and it was good.

    We pulled into the advertised private parking lot which was full so we parked at the public lot. We were seated on the patio next to a very loud party. We ordered a specific vintage year and were brought a different one. My partner noticed just as the head waitress was going to open it. She didn't offer an alternative. We then ordered a more expensive bottle. My dish, tempura tuna steak, was very good, but the halibut was just average. When the check arrived it was whisked away because the less expensive wine was still listed. When returned, we noted that we were charged for an additional entree. No compensation was given for the wine nor the parking, although we asked. Very unprofessional service. We won't return.

    My husband and I come here every year when we visit PTown. I always get the lobster because well, you know, lobster. The staff are all very friendly and fantastic and it's great to see them here year after year. Fun cocktail menu and seafood. My 2 lb. market price whole lobster was stemed perfectly and was way too huge to even finish. My husband's lamb could use a little improvement in the quality of cut dept., but it was still quite tasty. Looking forward to a return visit.

    We've eaten here several times and it never dissapoints. The food is creative and always done well. Menu doesn't seem to change much year to year, which is ok if you only go a couple times a summer. The service is always superior - everyone is helping everyone and it runs very smoothly from the diners perspective. The lobster gnocchi is always delicious. Good cocktails too. Make sure you get a table on the porch.
