Don't let the classy old fashion atmosphere mislead you. This place has some unique and even brave delicious flavors. The swordfish cabob with yemmen schug, the surprising tomatoes salad were very unique. The smoked shrimp was good. So although it has no atmosphere (and no music. And too much light. And I so expect to enjoy atmosphere at their price)... More

We were first timers at Bergamot to celebrate our 35th. The food was very good, the service was attentive, friendly and helpful and the vibe in the room was great. The "bacon and eggs" appetizer was tasty and fun. We had cod and sea bass, both cooked perfectly. The desserts were quirky but tasty. We will return.

This small eatery is worth a visit. The staff are attentive and friendly without being over the top. They serve a good selection of pre dinner cocktails and the food is competent though desert was a bit of a let down after a reasonably good meal.

Had the pleasure of dining here for a business dinner. At first I was confused since it looked like it was in a fairly residential/quiet neighbourhood and the restaurant was only half full. By 8pm the place was packed and people were somewhat waiting at the bar for a table. The food was excellent. . I really like the Manhattan's... More

My friends and I did their tasting menu and it was the best. We tried this after having a great experience at BISQ, their sister company. Their food is so tasty and yummy. At first, it looks like they are small portion, but I was so full at the end. Their drinks are great as well. I highly recommend this... More

We first discovered Bergamot due to a Groupon coupon for their legendary 7-course meal. We haven't stopped going back since. The staff really do feel like family, taking time to learn about your life and cater to your tastes. Paul, the bartender, is my favorite in Boston, not only for his taste, but also for his sense of humor and... More

Delicate, tasteful, pretty, special. This is such a great spot. So friendly! Most of the dishes I've had here, I've really liked. The cocktails are pretty great, too. Oysters are of the highest quality, with the awesome champagne vinegar mignonette. Definitely somewhat of a regular here. Get dessert, too, you won't be sorry!

I was eager to return to Bergamot after a couple of years hiatus. The husband and I went with two friends; it was a first visit for all but me. Our starters were fine: 2 beet salads, a pork terrine and "fish balls." All were presented with a twist and were quite tasty. Our main courses were also quite good... More

I went here for a date night with my boyfriend a couple of months ago and we had a great time. The food was delicious, a little bit pricey but definitely worth it. I had the bergamot tea with dessert (when in rome!) and would highly recommend

Good portions with wide choice options for a fixed dinner. We chose the 3 course menu and together with ordering a good bottle of wine and excellent service ,our dinner was truly value for money. I particularly liked the grilled loukaniko and the shrimp and tagliatelle. Recommend strongly.
