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.

In a 4-person dinner ($46 price fixe), the top items were the Wild Mushroom Lasagna (w/porcinis, morels, radish, taleggio cheese, arugula puree)---etherally rich; Fishballs (an assertive but nicely balanced appetizer of ramp kimchi, aromatic rice, carrot, cilantro, sweet chili sauce); a perfectly cooked Egg Battered Cod (w/tabouli, charred kohlrabi, mousseron mushrooms, beet coulis); Sweet Potato Agnolotti (w/miso brood, tofu, broccoli,...

While visiting our son and his wife in Somerville, we ate dinner at Bergamot to celebrate our daughter-in-law's birthday. She had been to Bergamot some time back and thought that we would enjoy it. We each ordered something different, enjoying a three-course meal of appetizer, entree, and dessert. Everything was excellent. Since there were four of us and we each... More

My impression of this restaurant is that it is a very expensive and over rated restaurant that serves "creative" meals which may or may not impress you. My meal certainly did not impress me (presentation, quality or quantity). Atmosphere in restaurant was excellent but breeze from fan made me feel cold as well as made my food cold.
