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.

This place is becoming my favorite fine dining place. Surprisingly it's jus friendly and I brought my 2 year old daughter rice and had good experience both times.

Dined here maybe 6-8 times and always enjoyed it. This was a less memorable visit -- we were seated in the Jetstream from the door on a cold night and, befitting the weather, our waiter was atypically cool and uncommunicative. The food, cocktails and wine were fine and the visits from the kitchen were friendly and informative.

Such an incredible disappointment! 8pm reservation; not a crumb of food arrived until 9:10pm - not even a piece of bread. One appetizer/soup was cold + foie gras was flavorless and overpowered by over-buttered/soggy toast + poached egg. Waited a long time for entree + one had to be sent back because it too was cold. Meat had more fat than meat. I said something to waitstaff + we were given a free glass of Granacha at end of meal. Frankly, should not have been charged for the entree; there was literally 3 edible bites. I NEVER write poor reviews but this experience was just all around bad + very pricey for being bad. I've been fortunate enough to eat in great inexpensive and expensive restaurants around the world + in Boston, where I now live. This will go down as one of the worst experiences I've had. Wait staff was extremely courteous + wine selections are wonderful. Too bad food doesn't come close to to their kindness and wine/cocktail list!

A great experience every time. The food is excellent and the staff friendly, knowledgeable and skilled. Chef is creative and the master of deconstruction. Paul at the bar - always terrific. Creative and masterful. Best Martinez ever

This was our 4th time at the Bergamot and it was unfortunately disappointing after previous great visits. The food was still good, we shared the duck appetizer and I had the salmon and both were great, although my wife's gnocchi was a little below expectations. Our biggest complaint was the service, and specifically our server. We had a total bill ~150 for 2 but at every interaction he was noticably displeased with us not ordering more or a pricier option. He was also not attentive, our wine came out after our appetizer was served and we waiting ~30 minutes after we were finished eating for plates to be cleared. After leaving we could only think about the server, not what we would expect for the bergamot. I'll be sticking to the Scott's back alley BBQ in the future.

Imaginative and capably executes dished. Citrus salad was a standout.
Entire meal was excellent.
One quibble, martini was watery but was remade with good humor and an apology from both server and manager.
