We were here once before and were a bit disappointed, given the reviews, as the service was a bit rushed and the food, while good, was not that distinctive. However, we gave it another try during a week day night and an earlier time and had a totally different experience. The restaurant was not as crowded and the service, from... More

Exactly a year since last visited. Enjoyed it last time a lot. This time seemed different. Some of the waitstaff seemed uninterested and sullen. My gnocchi appetizer was great. The short rib main dish not so. It arrived cold and got colder and was not particularly tasty. It came across to me as folks going through the motions without commitment.

We had the 7 course tasting menu with the wine pairing and found all to our liking. The service was 5 star with the server very knowledgeable about the wines. In fact, one of the true highlights was the fact that the pairings were so spot on and complemented the courses so well. Heavily French in the wines with some... More

Overall, great food and good service combine for an excellent meal. We have been going to Bergamot for years and have never had a bad meal. The chef really knows how to make the ingredients shine. The style of the cooking is new American farm-to-table. Everything is fresh. The seasoning of the food is subtle, never overpowering. If you are... More

Two of us had the 7 course tasting menu. The service was very friendly, helpful without being overbearing. Food was quite good.

Absolutely disappointing. We were very disappointed after friends been there and highly recommended this restaurant. We chose the (prix fix) menu. The 3 courses at first were at best mediocre where there was a taste to the food but nothing extra ordinary that anybody can rave about. Then came the main courses, and that was a total disappointment. The food... More

Great food, nice ambiance and an exhaustive wine list. The restaurant was full on a Sunday night which provided a great ambiance!

As visitors from Michigan, we recently dined at Bergamot with our grandson and his fiance who live in Somerville. What a fabulous and memorable dinner and evening! The service was impeccable without being intrusive. My wife ordered the gazpacho appetizer with crabmeat, I the house tomato salad. Both were outstanding, For the main course, my wife enjoyed swordfish medallions, I... More

I've been to Bergamot a number of times over the past two years. Everything I've eaten there is delicious and creative. Sometimes it's hard to order because there is such a list of ingredients that it's hard to imagine what a combination of all those flavors would taste like, but you're pretty well assured that what they've put together will...

Don't let the classy old fashion atmosphere mislead you. This place has some unique and even brave delicious flavors. The swordfish cabob with yemmen schug, the surprising tomatoes salad were very unique. The smoked shrimp was good. So although it has no atmosphere (and no music. And too much light. And I so expect to enjoy atmosphere at their price)... More
