Foursquare Tips

  • That Somerville is now a hot dining destination is due, in large part, to Keith Pooler. In his kitchen at Bergamot, the chef takes the ubiquitous farm-to-table theme and runs with it.
  • Plating beautiful, creative fare (like a gorgeous appetizer of cockle & squid ragout) at neighborhood-friendly prices with fine service & serious cocktails.
  • A good place to go for drinks/apps (I suggest splitting two apps if you are a dining pair), but a splurge for dinner. Save this place for a special occasion.
  • This 69-seat restaurant opened in 2010 and has helped pave the way for a new era of Somerville dining. The critics have praised Bergamot's synthesis of relaxed attitude and serious skill
  • Eating at the bar is a must. Paul & Kai are stellar - they offer great service & are VERY knowledgable about food & bevies.
  • Eat dinner at the bar. They have a great bar menu that is cheaper, but you can still order from the regular dinner menu. Plus, the bartenders are so nice and they know their stuff.
  • You can't go wrong... But make sure to order dessert. Y U M!!!
  • What a joke. The dishes in the 3-course have "artistic" titles: the "beet salad" had 4 arugula leaves, the "cheesecake" had 3 teaspoons of cream cheese and crumbled crust. WORST DINNER EVER.
  • Service is great, but don't get the tasting menu if you're in the middle of a strength cycle. No gainz.
  • Lemon pappardelle and yucca gnocchi were delicious! Desserts are a must!
  • Have the Pris Fix and eat the clafoutis for dessert. Great food here.

  • Get the burger at the 8-stool bar.
  • Eating at the bar is a great experience. If they have flounder on the menu, you can't go wrong!
  • No reservation? No problem. Sit at the bar and be sure to try the goat cheese cake and a tipple of old rum for dessert.
  • Try the Charcuterie Board - The "Goy Boy Board", a selection of Jewish favorites. Brilliant charcuterie as always at Bergamot. (via @Foodspotting)
  • Bergamot cooks up progressive American cuisine with a focus on local ingredients. For Valentines Day, Bergamot is offering a six-course tasting menu for $95 per person.
  • The Butter-Poached Oysters appetizer is possibly the best dish I've ever had. I could have eat 5 of that course alone.
  • Reasonably priced fixed price menu. Steak and mushroom ramen were both delicious and hearty
  • If you're looking for a good prix fixe meal, Bergamot is the way to go: every dish I had (pea salad, scallops & baklava) was creative and delicious
