The Pointe Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Have gone to the Pointe for dinner 5-6 times and food is always delicious and well prepared. They add enough new specials to make it interesting. and the assortment of desserts available is wonderful. only downfall is the meals are on the small side so if you have a hearty appetite, get two appetizers or eat something before you come to the restaurant.
We had Thanksgiving dinner at the Pointe and it was worth every penny. It was a bountiful four courses with great cocktails & wine to match. We were able to relax downstairs where to hostess brought us cocktails until our table was ready. We were early. The food was delicious & enough for leftovers (which is what everyone wants the day after Thanksgiving). We would definitely visit again for a special occasion or just dinner.
All in all the service was terrible starting with the phone call to confirm the reservation. The gentlemen that I spoke to on the phone was short, and couldn’t be bothered to explain what the limited menu was on Thanksgiving Day. When entering the restaurant we were told to go to the bar and was confronted with a gentleman bar tender who was very unpleasant and said he was busy at the moment and made us feel very unwelcoming. We were approached by a lovely hostess who was very sweet and sat us at our table. The male server was the worst even more so than the bar tender. He was pretentious, short when he spoke, and worst of all passive aggressive with his rude comments. Example when asked to change to a second choice dessert you would have thought that I asked for his left arm, then later proceeded with a comment “you would think you would have eaten all your dessert since you asked for it”. My partner and I have been coming to p-town on a yearly basis twice a year for the past twenty years and have never been treated like this before in a restaurant. This was our first and unfortunately our last time to the Point restaurant.
The food is outstanding, but the service really sets the Pointe apart. The lobster gnocchi was fabulous. Lite with large chunks of lobster in a white wine, chive butter. The deviled egg appetizer turned basic party fare into something extraordinary with brown sugar bacon and arugula. Martinis to order and blue cheese stuffed olives to top it off. The staff works together seamlessly with everyone appearing to do everything in unison. For a really special evening grab a room and stay for the night. Not only will it be truly romantic, but you can enjoy a fabulous breakfast in the morning. Pastries, several delicious entrees to choose from, fruit, yogurt, and oatmeal all included with your stay. Highly recommended.
The Pointe Restaurant is located in the historic Pointe Inn still furnished as the original Inn was. We were seated over a very beautiful garden. The food was delicious and well presented. The wait staff was courteous and efficient A must for dessert is the Chocolate Chip Cookies sandwich stuffed with Mint Chocotal Chip Gelato a sharing dessert.
The ambiance is nice, cozy and very good for table conversation, but maybe not a great option for a party of six. It was on a Saturday at 6:30 and even though they were accommodating, we were told that we could stay till 8:10 (we were 15 min. late but either way, we would have had to leave by 8:10 cause of the other reservations) - so we felt a little rushed overall.
The main courses (scallops, gnocchi with lobster and lobster ravioli) were vey good compared to the appetizers (calamari, escargot and tuna poke).
Wine we selected was pretty good as well.
This was the second time back within a month. We ordered the short ribs and the flounder special. The short ribs were delivered hot. The flounder was luke warm. The waiter told us the plate was warm when he brought it out. The plate should have been hot before he delivered it. Probably the ribs were ready before the flounder
We were a bit disappointed at the meal and the service at one of our favorite restaurants in Provincetown. We arrived with a reservation at 5:45 for a pre-theatre dinner and were seated immediately. Our friendly servers quickly brought water bread and menus and we ordered a bottle of wine. We gave our orders (two burgers, fries and an order of asparagus) to our server before 6:00pm and then we watched and waited as folks who arrived after us enjoyed their dinners. Our burgers arrived 45 minutes later, around 6:45. We asked for 'medium' burgers; they were flavorful but very, very, very well done. The fries were 'OK'; the asparagus was delicious. We asked for more bread, which never came and our friendly server never came around to pour our wine. Both minor issues, but both mirrored our less than great dinner. We will return as we do enjoy the atmosphere and, in the past, both the food and service were always excellent, but this was not a memorable evening.
The restaurant is run by a delightful South African couple who are real professionals.... warm, engaging and knowledgeable.
The food was good, but not exceptional, and probably on the pricey side.
This was our first visit to Ptown, and I think the idea of 'fine dining' - which this restaurant purports to offer - in this very special, historic seaside town on the Cape is a little out of place. I suggest rather getting a delicious lobster somewhere less formal, preferably with a view!
I went to The Pointe for my birthday dinner with my husband. Drinks were great. We had the mussels for an appetizer...delicious fra diavolo. He had gnocchi with lobster, I had cod with lemon and thyme crumb topper. So good. The Parmesan risotto was ridiculously good. Desserts were great, our waiter was very nice and attentive and our table view of the Pilgrim Monument was fabulous. We'll be back!
My husband and I have dined at The Pointe many times over the past several years, and have never been disappointed with the food or the service. On this visit, we were seated promptly and fully enjoyed our meal (escargot, scallops, and stuffed pork). The service was excellent. Highly recommended!
First time dining here & will definitely NOT be the last! The food was exceptional, best scallops I ever had, and the halibut was right up there. Nice menu variety so there is something for everyone. This place is a dining jewel in Provincetown and should not be missed. 5 STARS!!
We arrived 10 minutes early for our reservation. A party who had arrived late for their reservation was seated before us. We were seated in a little alcove between the tiny bar and the kitchen while the staff ran orders on every side of, jostling us. The hostess kept saying she was sorry in a most exasperated way, as she sat two-tops ahead of us. We had to wait well over a half hour for our table, which turned out to be in the furthest reaches of the porch, where a street lamp shone brightly in my eyes throughout dinner. Between that bright light and the dimness of the room I had trouble seeing the menu.
Service was more than a bit confused and it took quite some time to be served both courses during the two plus hours we were seated
I will say the food is quite tasty but the experience was not pleasant. While we were eating our entrees, a bus person came by to ask if we were "done working on that"? Some of our party were still well into eating, not even close to being finished, but by this point the restaurant was mostly empty and they clearly wanted to hurry us along.
I've enjoyed prior meals at The Pointe, but we will not be returning. I'm not sure if they are seriously understaffed due to the visa situation, but Augustitis has definitely struck here. I've never been made so uncomfortable in a Provincetown restaurant as I was last night.
