My husband and I were seeking a special restaurant to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. We heard of Café Ponte when they sponsored an event at our country club (Drive for a Cure at East Lake Woodlands Country Club). Checking out their website, we decided this was definitely the place to go for our anniversary dinner. Initially, my husband made reservations for 6:30 PM but noticed they had an early dining special of a 3-course meal so we changed the reservation to 6:00 PM.
The restaurant is in a shopping center. They have done a very good job of giving an extra flair with plenty of plants around the outside and created a very nice outdoor dining patio. On this warm summer evening, we dined inside. The décor is a clean modern look with a warm charm. The wait staff was excellent taking care of any need or request. Starting with the complimentary champagne, we delighted in this special dining experience and venue. We both opted for the Early Dinner Menu of the 3-course dinner. I had the Fried White Asparagus Appetizer while my husband went with their tasty mushroom soup. Each were delicious! My lobster served in a pot was beautifully presented and so tasty with huge chunks of lobster in a cream sauce (similar to a lobster pie). My husband thoroughly enjoyed his sea scallops. The trio-dessert was a wonderful finale to our anniversary dinner. They also have an extensive wine selection.
We can highly recommend Café Ponte for an upscale dining experience. It was quiet on the Monday night we were there.
