We had dinner there 6-14-14. We were delighted that the food and service was as good as we remembered from previous visits. I had the pre fixe special rigatoni bolognasse with seared ocean scallops. My husband had lobster pot pie. We were not rushed, and each course was served in a timely manner

Let me start off by recommending our waiter, Jeffrey. He deserves 5 stars for his style and service. The 6-course meal for 5 of us started at 7:45PM and went perfectly until the last dessert sampler at 11:00PM. Yes, those of you who prefer fast food should stick with Wendy's. The starter was a mousse bouche followed by a chilled soup with spicy corn chowder infusion. A light salad and cheese sampler followed before the main courses of petite filet and lobster. The house bread sampler was delicious as was each of the 6 pairings of wine before the dessert. Neither light on the diet nor the wallet but always a well deserved self indulgence, we recommend you try the Chef's sampler ($85) with the wine pairing ($35).

We went to Cafe Ponte to celebrate a grduation. Everything was fantastic. The service was professional and attentive. The bread choices were really nice, with a broad and tasty selection of breads. The complementary musroom soup was a nice addition to our appetizer portion of the meal, which included beef carpaccio, lobster and crab cakes and foie gras. Main courses of beef ribeye for two, scallops and bouillabaisse were cooked to perfection and served beautifully. Dessert for us was a tasting of 3, each of which was unique and a nice conclusion to the meal, especially when coupled with espresso. My wife had the wine pairing with her meal and the selections were solid. I split a bottle of wine with two others and their only shiraz on the wine list was quite good.
