Hadn't been to Cafe Ponte in a long time. We had the best evening. Sat at a table in the bar and it was very quiet and private. Had the BEST service in a very long time from Steven. Robin is an excellent host. The food was simply beyond description. The oysters and tuna appetizer were amazing. We had the... More

My friend and I met for lunch and decided to give Cafe Ponte a try. We are so glad we did! The service and food were excellent. Presentation and plating were on point! I got the chopped kale salad which I loved and their fries were plentiful and yummy.

We went here on a co-workers recommendation and were not disappointed. They have a tasting menu for around $70 and a set meal menu for about $40 that included a small soup, salad, main dish and dessert. We all choose this option. We all had the mushroom soup and kale salad which was fantastic. I had the sea bass and... More

We decided on Cafe Ponte as our special Saturday night dinner whilst in Clearwater celebrating our daughter's 21 Birthday. It was amazing. Do not be put off by the outside (it looks like a nightclub!), inside it is lovely, spacious and relaxed. We had a shared charcuterie board (after a tasty amuse bouche of mushroom soup), a good variety of... More

We just moved here two weeks ago and this was our first adventure out. From the wait staff Gabriel and Steve, the manager Robin, and the food - this was one of the best restaurants we have ever been too. Well worth a visit. We will definitely be back again!

I have been living in Clearwater for 9 months and apparently have been living under a rock. I just now visited Cafe Ponte off Ulmerton Road and I was thoroughly impressed. The casual fine dining atmosphere welcomes you as soon as you step in the front door and are greeted by smiling staff and live piano. The modern, crisp yet... More

We loved this restaurant....great food and super service.....and gluten free friendly. We both started with salads......roasted beet and the chopped kale...both were very good. Our entrees were the traditional bouillabaisse and the roasted half chicken.....large portions and exceptional. For desert we had the flourless chocolate cake with Carmel gelato.......wonderful We will dine here again!

After several wonderful experiences my previous visit was not the greatest.. Im happy to report that Friday night things where back to normal. The RibEye was wonderful and the calamari appetizers where really good. You have to leave enough time to sit at the Piano Bar as Tito will put a smile on your face..
