“Great breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

We had breakfast here, outstanding service and food. The host put the heater on for us, the view of the vines was a great way to start your morning. Both breakfast dishes were prepared very well and served elegant. I had the smoked salmon carpaccio and my husband had the Spanish eggs and linguica.

“A perfect setting for a spectacular meal.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

We had my birthday dinner there, and were not disappointed. The service is incredibly friendly and knowledgeable, and the food was exquisite; duck carpaccio, a caprese salad with burrata and heirloom tomatoes, and then a lamb rack. Each item was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. And all we had to do was walk downstairs from our room. If you're staying at the Ponte Vineyard and don't dine here, you're making a huge mistake.

“Not what I expected in a fine dining restaurant.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

The positive thing I will say is the flavor in all of the food was excellent. My compliments to the chef. However, the soup was lukewarm, the entrees took over an hour to arrive after the soup, and the entrees were also lukewarm. The portion sizes are tiny for the price charged. I expected a lot more from this restaurant based on my experiences with the rest of what Ponte has to offer.

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

The food was good, the service was slow and non attentive. I was disappointed because the other part of the hotel is so nice and the other staff worked hard to make you happy.

“30th anniversary celebration”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

We were guests at the hotel and decided to eat at the hotel. We felt it to be very over priced for what we got. 3 sea scallops and a smearing of mashed potatoes for $38. Hubby got the filet and small amt of mashed potates and 2 stalks of asparagus $38. bouquet salad $10 which was very good. Their wine is wonderful. They had a fireplace in the same room that would have been nice if they would have lit it up but they left it dark. Waiter Shaun was very nice. Would not eat there again.
