We visited the Bothy on 124th Street on a Thursday night for drinks with friends. We all had wine which you can buy by the glass or bottle. We also had the Charcuterie plate ; 2 cheeses, 2 meats and the pate. We asked the waitress for her recommendations and she was quite helpful. Everything on the plate was quite... More

We visited the Bothy on 124 st. on Sunday evening, for a romantic dinner. The service was wonderful...we ordered a whiskey and a cocktail, and asked the waitress to recommend cheeses for the charcuterie plate we were ordering. She recommended two cheeses that complimented our meats, neither of which we had ever heard of, and they were absolutely spot on... More

I've been here on numerous occasions and can't believe I haven't written a review of it yet. Good place to go with friends, family or for business because it's small and quiet. Yes it's a bit pricey but the wines and scotches are fantastic - incredibly varied selection of both. The food is delicious - I've had the meat and... More

The 124th Street Bothy- The food far exceeded my expectations. A risotto with wild mushrooms topped with short ribs - friend has a huge bowl of tomato soup - everything was exceptional. Service is frustratingly slow, they need to explain how long the food orders are going to take and be a bit more attentive. Overall I would return and... More

Four of us recently had dinner and drinks at the South side location. All in all we had a pretty good experience and enjoyed some nice wines and good food. The Tapas which should be for sharing in our view had portions that seemed to be quite small and relatively expensive. We were served by a very pleasant server who... More

The food is good. The wines and scotch are very nice. But the prices are higher than we expected. A small glass of wine is $12 (minimum) and a small plate of cheese is $19. The atmosphere is fine (strip mall) and the service is good. We will probably find a similar place with lower prices. Look for an online... More

This was my first trip to The Bothy, and it didn't disappoint. The food was amazing! We had the Bothy Club sandwich and the Tomato Bacon Soup. The Alaskan Crab dip as a starter was also outstanding. The wine selection was great albeit a tad bit pricy, but I liked that they made custom 2 oz wine flights for you... More

If you like scotch, and don't mind paying a premium for tasty, but servings that are a touch on the small side, this place could be worth tracking down. But for a casual night out, it's not what I'd choose.

The atmosphere is pleasant enough, the service is fine, the whiskey and wine selection is enormous and the food is fine. However there is nothing about The Bothy, from its strip mall location, to its furnishings and decor, to the quality and/or quantity of its food options, that justifies the prices being charged. Fourteen dollars for a sandwich at lunch?... More

We both ordered the special which was a sea bass. It melted in our mouths...totally delicious. Also had appetizers and dessert which were ok but the fish was really outstanding. A bit pricey but if you want good food, this was very good food. Very nice presentation.
