Spent the day at Busch Gardens and were heading to Clearwater for the evening. Read the reviews and saw it was $$$$ but the menu that was linked to Tripadvisor showed midlevel prices. Guessing it was the lunch menu so we were caught off guard when we showed up in very casual clothes to a very nice restaurant. No one... More

I try to get to Cafe Ponte whenever I'm in town, and I've been fortunate to make it two times this week. As usual I was not disappointed. We did have a small hiccup with service this evening and had to request a new waiter, once that was sorted the evening went very well. We had the cheese platter to... More

This is our favorite birthday lunch spot as it is near the office - and they will bring the birthday "boy" or "girl" a complimentary, scrumptious chocolate dessert (that is too decadent not to share). It is out of my budget range for dinner, but lunches are top notch! The "Trio" is always a favorite - a small, amazing cup... More

We had such a wonderful dinner here that included the mushroom soup, ahi appetizer and the sea bass...and we had to try the pistachio ice cream. EVERYTHING was so yummy. We sat at the bar to eat and ended up meeting another couple from Clearwater that have been there several times and were celebrating their anniversary.HIGHLY recommend this place!

I have had lunch at Café Ponte many times and it is very reasonable and delicious. New Years Eve I had dinner there with friends. The food was exceptional and the service impeccable. You must try the wild mushroom soup for lunch or dinner. It is the best mushroom soup I have ever had. The lobster bisque is good as... More

The service was impeccable! Jeff was an amazing waiter. We started with the crostini which was delicious! I could've easily eaten 3 tablespoons more of the Jam. The star of the dinner was the mushroom soup. It was a light delicious and very flavorful. The chef also sent us a small tasting of the cauliflower soup which was one of... More

Great service, very good menu of choices, elegant atmosphere. Wish we had know about the early bird tasting menu, as we planned on eating between 6 and 6:30. Would be wise for them to tell patrons when making reservations. The peppers and mushrooms was our fav starter. Good thing we had a starter, as portions are a bit small for... More
