    In incredible evening of fine food and wonderful service. Only wish we had been given the option of sitting on the porch where the noise level would have been less. We had two parties of 8 adjacent to us which put a slight damper on an otherwise wonderful evening.

    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.

    Excellent food and great service. Nice view of the Pilgrim Monument at night . We had the lobster which was cooked perfectly. Reasonably priced for Cape Cod. Would definitely go back. We ate on the enclosed porch area which is a bit tight for space - not suitable for children.

    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.

    The view from the Pointe is the best in Ptown. We had a great table overlooking Bradford st and the pilgrim monument. Menu choices were great and affordable. Specials were so-so (meatloaf). The waiter was a little inattentive. We had to pour our own wine, another waiter was kind enough to clear our table and get our waiter to order desert.

    We had a wonderful dinner at the Pointe. The Dijon cream mussels are the best mussels we have ever had. We both had the sautéed Cape halibut with English pea sauce, corn risotto, and a side of roasted asparagus. For dessert we had fresh raspberry sorbet. Everything was so delicious. We sat on the porch with a nice view of Pilgrim monument. Our server Christina was excellent and very welcoming. We love the Pointe and look forward to returning soon. Since my husband is a diabetic, it's so nice that the Pointe has a dessert, raspberry sorbet with no sugar added. Very few restaurants have no sugar added desserts.

    We have been coming here for our anniversary for 5 years now, ever since stumbling on this restaurant on our wedding night. Highlights continue to remain the "famous clam chowder" (we liked it so much, we came back and had it again, 2 nights later!) and the lobster gnocchi. The wine menu is extensive, as is the menu of entrees. Prices are reasonable, and the atmosphere is lovely. Sit near the gas-powered fireplace for some warmth and charm on a cool spring evening, or out on the enclosed porch, if you want it a bit more private. The wait staff is knowledgeable about the dishes and can make suggestions if you find it difficult to choose. We continue to make this the first place we have dinner whenever we visit Provincetown.

    The atmosphere/view is the best thing the Point restaurant has going for it. My party of four was not impressed by the food nor the service. Two filet mignons came out way overdone, a hamburger that was ordered well done came out red, and the chicken in a pasta dish had a consistency of rubber. Add that to the fact that it took way too long for us to get our food and waters were never refilled and you can probably guess the kind of experience we had. The waitress was not attentive and the management was more focused on turning tables than the needs of the people currently dining.

    We had the pleasure of dining at the Pointe Restaurant this week and had a lovely time. They have a terrific wine list and all the food is prepared with care, presented nicely, and is delicious. Service is attentive but not intrusive. The only thing that I would change is the "Exploding chocolate cake", which we expected to be a warm molten chocolate dessert. Instead, this wasn't served quite warm enough to liquify the yummy chocolate center. It tasted great, but just wasn't quite right.

    We needed a break before a Magic Convention was beginning and we were working, so we chose a stay at the Crowne Point Historic Inn. We read the reviews of the Pointe and decided to give it a try. We are glad we did, from the excellent service of our waiter David (you remember the name when they are exceptional), to the ambiance, and great food, we were more than pleased and so glad we chose the Point to dine at for dinner. Breakfast the next morning was another treat, we also made a point of speaking to the chefs on both occasions, just wonderful. We will return, and will recommend to all our friends headed that way. Five star.

    This is a small, intimate resturant in the lower level of a hotel. There's an enclosed porch overlooking Bradofrd street, with a view down the hill toward the base of the monument. There was a lovely italian prefix three course dinner for only 15.95. Had the fried calamari (light, tender, perfect), and the ciopino (delicious, with mussels, salmon and cod). Service was courteous and swift. I suspect the ambience is a little different at peak season (we went in mid-March), but would highly reccomend it.
