Food and experience was amazing. My family really enjoyed our time there. The only thing I wished that didn’t happen was when we were getting ready to leave the host ask the server if he got a good tip. He checks the receipt blantly in front of me and said no. While the tip was on the table (in cash). I would have left happy but that gave me a unwelcome farewell.

Chef Jimmy has a unique menu with great attention to detail from the kitchen and wait staff.

We had a superb meal and had amazing experience.

Our meal was completed with fantastic macaroons and puff pastry.

Highly recommend this restaurant.

It was good but my client ordered a non alcoholic drink, which she drank but suspected in May have alcohol in it. Waiter assured her that it didn’t. Later manager came over to apologize that she was served the wrong drink and that it was an alcoholic drink.
Very upsetting for her.

Limited menu. We had the Vegetable soup and while the presentation was cute the soup itself was awful, have had much better out of a can. We also had the Sirloin steak which was not an entire steak but two very small pieces that amounted to five or six bites. Not what you would expect for $38.00. The staff was quite nice but didn’t makeup for the very poor value. I’m sure I won’t be alone when I say this was an F and L (First and Last).

We love The Bellemore, especially on a Sunday night when a tad less busy. The food - kona kanpachi, roasted sunchokes, porcini rigatoni with black truffle, sweetbreads, monkfish and porcelet - and wine are outstanding and the service (Kelly!) was impeccable and fun. What a way to celebrate an anniversary!

When you walk in the place if pretty and lively. However that's where the good things end. We tried to order cocktails but it took forever to get a waitress, let alone for the drinks to arrive (I think she forgot) And then, not only were they overpriced but the "pour" was quite small. With the small "pour" you'd think they wanted us to order more drinks but we had to once again get her attention and then again she forgot to pick them up from the bar. The food was also meager and salty and some of the items came cold and had to be returned to the kitchen. Even the desserts were bad and it's hard to ruin chocolate. The manager was aware all along and apologized for the "speed bumps" but the crappy rum drink he brought as an apology appropriately topped off the bad experience. Fortunately we were with good friends which was the best part of the evening.

Food and server were both on point. We were seated at the worst table in the restaurant, next to the front door and in direct line of the air vents despite other tables available. It was unbearably cold. Not one of the three floor managers touched our table to check in with us. Bathrooms are now on disarray after the first year open. The food is brilliant, but is overshadowed by the lack of attention to detail elsewhere in the restaurant.
