The overall experience was excellent and a good menu. The only thing I would suggest is dinner rolls instead of baguette slices.

Our first time and the experience was awesome! We were there for a business dinner and our client was very impressed by the food and the ambience. We are from Orange County but the next time I'm in the area, we will definitely be back!

We went for my husband birthday - Cesarina never disappoints! I had the bolognese and my husband had the carbonara. We also enjoyed a few of their signature cocktails! You can’t go wrong finishing off your meal with the table side tiramisu!

We enjoyed thanksgiving dinner with Herb & Sea and it was all absolutely fabulous. I have only had thanksgiving at a restaurant a few times and usually it just doesn’t stack up to homemade. This for sure did. (Plus the bonus of no dishes!) The stuffing/dressing in particular had the best seasoning, perfect sage herbiness. Pumpkin and apple pies for dessert were amazing, we did one of each. The texture and flavor were perfect. The staff were delightful and clearly also very excited by the food, they were excited for us to eat it because they knew it was so good! I will for sure go here again to try their regular menu, the endive salad and oyster starters on the special menu were a delicious add! Thank you Herb & Sea for a lovely holiday!

Every bit of the restaurant is built to excite the senses. The food has been designed and cooked to perfection. Everything on the menu looked amazing and what we got was literally life changing. My wife is a vegetarian and after trying to dry aged sirloin she said it was so delicious it “made her cry a little”. That should be enough. The steaks made a vegetarian cry with joy. Full stop.

Steak was delicious and a good value. The fries were perfectly hot and crisp Hanna was our server and she was great. She helped us with the new ordering system but ultimately we opted to have her take our order as it was much easier.

We ate outside on a beautiful Fall day! We enjoyed ourselves so much, our lunch turned into 3 hrs. Our waiter was very congenial and helpful since it was our first time! The food was delicious and we were never rushed! After eating we walked the restaurant grounds which were beautiful lighted for night. We would highly recommend the Ponte restaurant!!

Simply amazing experience. I wasn’t sure what to expect from this little beach side bistro, and I was blown away by the quality, freshness, and presentation. Each dish we ordered was expertly prepared and tasted phenomenal. We ordered several items from the tapas menu and as they were brought out, it seemed each dish was better than the last. It was such a fantastic adventure. Shout out to the chef, who obviously is passionate about his food. We can’t wait to come back with more friends.
