Another excellent meal at Bergamot. Limited but creative menu, very nice presentation, interesting combinations. On a Sunday evening the service was slow in the dining room but all hands pitched in and courses were served by any available staff. Lively scene at the bar where the bartenders were engaged with patrons to the point that those at tables waited some time for their beverages. That was the only negative. Both the lamb with Israeli couscous, preserved lemon, olives and muhamarra & grilled swordfish with escarole, fingerlings, red onion & salsa verde were delicious and portioned just right. Our diners Birthday was acknowledged and in addition to a greeting as part of the dessert presentation, Bergamot offered a nifty little package of their own tea blend as a take home gift. It had been some time between visits but we were very pleased to note that Bergamot has maintained a high standard for unique and delicious offerings of food and drink.

Food excellent, as usual. 2 of us had swordfish; one turbot. Fried Brussels sprouts also a hit. Service at Bergamot usually excellent. I eat there a few times a year, enough to be familiar-but not enough to be a regular---and to have high expectations. The food was up to its usual very high standards, but the service was not. An off night?

I love Bergamot. It is one of my favorite restaurants in Boston. The food is always very on point, and they have tasty cocktails. The service is very good. My only complaint was they accidentally over-charged us for our meal (entered our tasting menu in twice), but they corrected it without any issue when we brought it to their attention.

Appetizer, entree were good. The chocolate tart dessert was a little too salty. I also got not one, but two paper cuts from the paper table cover. Also, my cocktail came in a glass with water drips all around the insides that looks like it had just been rinsed. It wasn’t dirty, but just seems a little sloppy.

By now a neighborhood stalwart, the food is always very well prepared, if not the most inventive or original. The staff are a pleasure and always engaged to the perfect level. I wouldn't necessarily make this a special night out, but I would absolutely count on it for a cozy dinner at the bar with a friend. And they do rate a special place for introducing me to the Roman style gnocchi, which I had never seen nor tasted. Ask about them before assuming you know what they are, but they are tasty!

Bergamont is one of our favorite places to take out of town friends. It never fails to deliver on a delicious, cozy experience.

We tried the Chef tasting menu. Gorgeous presentation and excellent food. Combinations of food imaginative and delicious. Only "ding" is waitstaff reached across table multiple times for re-filling water or putting plates down/picking up.

My favorite restaurant in the Boston area.

My only criticism is the music which played over our table. I found it distracting. I just don't understand why people need it if we are there to be with friends or a friend and savor good wine and food.

Great night out with another couple, and there is parking around the corner. We sat next to window which was a little cool in January.

I invited my leadership team (5 people including me) to a post-holiday celebration dinner. You're easy to get to and its a major bonus that you have parking! The service was great - attentive but not hovering. We shared appetizers/lite-bites. Excellent flavors, but only a few were shareable. You might want to think about adding more that are shareable. Entrees were fabulous - simple, with incredible flavor and texture! Yum! You have a great and varied cocktail/wine selection, so everyone was able find what they liked the most without needing to get a bottle for the table.

I went with a friend on New Years Eve. The food and service were excellent! Having said that, $115 was a bit steep, even for six courses. It was a special occasion, so we treated ourselves but I do think a little less expensive would have been appreciated.

Started off strong but went south. Usually a great meal but wasn't up to par. Too saucey, too much apple, pine nuts. Scallop dish didn't make sense. Chestnut cake was underwhelming.
