Servio Garcia – General Manager, Owner

servio_hiresYou know you’ve arrived to a quality restaurant experience when you see Servio Garcia greeting you at the door. Servio is considered one of the city’s most friendly and respected front-of-the-house people. His smile and sense of hospitality lights up a room. You probably have seen him at Craigie On Main, Casablanca, Ten Tables, and Radius. Somehow Servio even found the time while working as General Manager of Casablanca to earn a certificate from Harvard University in Hotel and Restaurant Management.

With his 15 years of experience in the restaurant industry, Servio was ready to open his own place with his friend Keith Pooler in the kitchen. “We first met over late-night drinks at Casablanca, when Keith worked at Harvest,” explains Servio. “We found we shared a dream for owning our own place – and we shared a vision. And now we have it here with Bergamot.”

Neighborhood hospitality is the cornerstone of service at Bergamot. As Servio says, “this is a great neighborhood that appreciates restaurants; we are eager to become a part of the community here.” And the neighborhood has been quick to welcome Servio, Keith and the entire Bergamot team.
