Up scale, delightful. Gourmet cooking and presentation. Best ever Butternut Squash soup. I have never in 20+ years had a less than stellar meal.

The chef, Chris Ponte, provides some really creative delicious dishes. The location in strip type mall, made me when I was a first time guest wonder about quality. I soon found out that concern was completely unfounded. Service, drinks, food, and atmosphere are top quality.

Service and food is amazing. Drinks were overpriced and weak. We will be back for food but not for drinks.

Great fun! Went with another couple using a Groupon coupon, which made it much more affordable (saved $95). This is not a cheap evening, but $55 for the better wine pairing is a fair price. My friends did not select to pair wines, so you...More

We have visited Cafe Ponte before, and the food continues to be absolutely superb. The service was not quite up to its usual standards: we were asked several times by different, eager-to-please waitstaff if we wanted more bread and, after we said yes, nothing happened....More
