The service was excellent. My waiter recommended an excellent wine to go with my dinner.

I couldn't have had a finer dinning experience. We were in town and celebrating our wedding anniversary here for dinner. After being underwhelmed at a couple of other highly regarded restaurants in the area, we were very impressed with the outstanding service and quality of food and presentation. They also went above and beyond by having a "Happy Anniversary" card waiting for us at our table, wishing us well and thanking us for spending our special evening with them.
I can't recommend Cafe Ponte highly enough. Of all the restaurants in the Tampa Bay Area that my group has visited for monthly luncheons over the last five years, none is more universally liked than Cafe Ponte.
Great food choices on their extensive lunch menu, beautifully served in a truly first class restaurant. While visiting the area from New York, we wanted to go somewhere nice for our anniversary. The food here is really good. Probably some of the best food we've had in Clearwater during our stay. The service was great.

Everything about this place was great. My only criticisms, especially coming from New York, are the location and layout of the dining area. The restaurant is in a strip mall.
Kind of odd for a high end establishment. This should really be a standalone restaurant. Because it's in a strip mall, the place seems kind of small and dark. They won't open the blinds to let light in, because The restaurants are by the entrance and not tucked away in the back. All of this seems very odd. Maybe this is just what happens in Clearwater and I'm spoiled by the high end New York steakhouses.
Overall, the good is great. No complaints whatsoever. Great food, great service, overall very pleasant luncheon. Certainly 1 restaurant in the area and in the top 5 in St. Atmosphere, ambiance , service and the food is devine. Cafe Ponte has catered for myself and two other homes in my neighborhood.

Unparalled wislity and service. Thank you! My review of Cafe Pont: Enjoyed the salmon, others had duck and were somewhat pleased. Sides seemed overpriced. Since I am writing the review I gave a 4 star rating others I dined with may have given it a 3 star. I made a reservation for one. I got the impression from the descriptions I read about Cafe Ponte that it is a very upscale restaurant so I wore a suit to show respect.
The place was packed, which is to be expected in a successful restaurant. There was piano music playing and the atmosphere seemed a bit noisy to me. Can't do much about that. You can't tell the patrons to whisper.
Before I even ordered my meal, I was given a complimentary truffle bisque served in a demitasse cup. It was delicious. I don't normally eat soups but this was like nothing I tasted before; a pleasant surprise. I don't eat at restaurants like this often so I get confused when I read the menu. I usually have no clue what I am about to get. I ordered the calamari appetizer, salmon entree and the sweet potato side dish. Everything was perfect and had an interesting, vibrant flavor.
The sweet potato side was so powerfully rich it seemed more like a dessert. I didn't have room for dessert so when the waitress offered it I declined. I was served two small complimentary dessert items; a piece of fudge and a tiny green biscotti. She said, "We never let anyone leave us without a dessert". Next time I will be sure to leave room for dessert. It was all quite affordable. From beginning to end, Cafe Ponte was an unique dining experience. Try it sometime. I'm sure you will feel the same. Consistently great service, a very reasonable and delicious lunch, nice ambiance--Cafe Ponte is terrrific!
I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a fine dining experience. Great value for what we received. Companies respond better when others are watching.

The buffet is very substantial, and all drinks — coffee, milk, juice, etc. This also allows us to take advantage of the lighter crowds in the morning at the Magic Kingdom.
Also, because the restaurant is not open for lunch it starts to get quiet as people with earlier seating times leave, and ALL of the characters gather together in the waiting area for group photos of just your family, which the servers will gladly take with your camera. This has happened both times we have eaten there, and so I have photos of just my family with Goofy, Minnie, Mickey, Chip and Dale!

Many of the entrees and combo meals served at Walt Disney World restaurants include a large amount of food.
If you are not big eaters, consider splitting an entree or combo meal between two people and possibly ordering an extra side dish or appetizer to share. We have done this many times and the server always cheerfully complied. In fact, at sit-down restaurants, usually the split entree was brought out on separate plates for us.
