Love this restaurant! Excellent food, excellent service. I️ have an allergy to fresh garlic and they prepare my dish of choice without it. Most normally I️ get the Seabass and the mushroom truffle soup is a must have!

The variety in the Cafe Ponte menu was delightful, the quality of each dish impeccable and the service was impressive. The Lobster & Crab Cake appetizer was truly memorable, and the Calamari with the caramel soy glaze was delicious as well. I enjoyed the Filet...More
