We have been fans of Bonterra for years, so I don’t know what went wrong on Friday night. Our meal was so disappointing. The minestrone soup was so salty that we could barely eat it (and I love salt). My husband had the Insalata Verde and said it was gritty. He left more than half of it. 2 of us had the Bison Ravioli. All we could say was “yuck”. One person had the pork chop and said it was good. The 4th diner’s meal was delivered about 10 minutes after the rest of us due to a “kitchen mishap” according to our server. I had the Affogato for dessert. The espresso was cold and it was served in a glass that was so tall that it was impossible to dip the biscotti into it.

Since we have enjoyed Bonterra in the past, I hope things improve. I would like to go back, but will closely watch the reviews before considering another visit.

Food was creative and delicious but portion sizes were tiny. $160 for our meal, and ended up stopping on the way home because we were still hungry.

The main and dessert were just OK - although fairly expensive.

The bill for lunch exceeded food quality and service.

Highly recommend the tasting menu! Pastas are made in house which isn’t always the case when dining Italian. Servers are very knowledgeable about both the food and the wine menu. Great place for a date night!

Perfect ambiance for a special, romantic and comfortable evening meal. Service was very professional with guidance and suggestions for a great wine and meal choices for a late evening meal. Thank you

It took us 2.5 hours to finish a 4 course menu!
Slow service even though we were the first ones to show for dinner. Taste menu super small quantities more than usual, the main was lamb but I had more fat in my meat than actually meat. I asked for a subsitituion for my dessert for another menu that they had available and even though the desserts were the same price, they did not let me do it (which is ok but not even saying I see I can do for it)...I dont think I would go back...

The food was not very good this time. Usually very good. This time it was quite average tasting and the restaurant is too pricey for average food.
