Great place to celebrate Bastille Day! Great food and service (Mathias was great). We left wondering why we don’t go there for dinner more often. We will fix that.

Took 40 mins to get food even it was not that packed at the moment.
Lipstick marks on the glass
Had to go direct to the register to pay because the server forgot my check request.

I was served a crab cake that was completely, totally burned and charred black, The server seemed completely indifferent to the fact that the food I was served was unacceptable. She made no effort whatsoever to address the problem, and I ended up having to scrape the top off. It was like cinders.

the meal was a delightful and even a sublime experience. I don't like chicken breast. But the cajun roasted chicken was spectacular. Moist, and the flavors of the sauce were a perfect complement . I am looking forward to dining there again.

Service was awful and the food was not good. The tuna overcooked and dirty looking food cooks. Maybe it was just a bad day?

Spacious, sunny outdoor table for a pleasant, unhurried Friday lunch. Moroccan couscous with lamb and red wine. Wonderful dessert to top it off. Pleasant staff.

Ordered a pasta dish with shrimp and vegetables. While the shrimp and vegetables were cooked well the overall dish was swimming in butter/oil.

I have been a loyal customer for the longest time. I live on the same block and have been here many times when almost nobody Was at the restaurant. I knee most of the servers. Then came the pandemic. Then came outdoor seating. Lo and behold they become quite popular. Since re-opening I have made two reservations each one of them at least a day or two ahead of time. Guess what? They sat me in what will be equivalent to Siberia.☹️🤓😱. Obviously loyalty doesn’t mean anything to this place.

Love Bergamonte but was a little disappointed today. I ordered croque monsieur and my lunch companion had the risotto. The risotto was a “crowd” pleaser. However, though the bread and cheese were nicely crisped the sandwich significantly lacked flavor.

Whether for breakfast, dinner, or just a quick coffee it's wonderful to have Bergamote in the neighborhood. The food is creative and tasty, the staff welcoming and friendly, and you feel like your at home immediately. The menu changes seasonally, with new surprises always around the corner. My current favorites is the BEET & YOGURT Salad... Roasted Beet, Pear, Pistachio, Orange & Arugula. And the soups are awesome. Always perfect!

We all had the salmon and shared sides of asparagus and fries. Each salmon was cooked exactly as we wanted— super rare to well done. Our server was attentive except slow in bringing the check.Bergamote is my go-to place for breakfast but dinner turned out to be pretty great too

Poached egg (only one served with avocado. disappointing), was over cooked. Excellent chocolate croissant, made a "a different location", was outstanding. Service was generally lacking. Slow, intermittent, unpolished. Overall, above average experience.

This place is always an absolute pleasure to eat at, when I'm in Chelsea to meet up with old friends at lunch. The service and cuisine are outstanding, especially for the cost! The noise level is on the lower side, so I can enjoy hearing conversation of those I'm dining with. I would eat here much more often, as well as dinner if they had a full bar, rather than just beer/wine. Unfortunately, many of my dining friends dismiss any place that can't serve a pre-dinner martini.
