Black Bottle is a great spot for a group to eat a good meal. Their decor is modern and clean, the staff is friendly and attentive, and the food is delicious. I went with a group of friends later in the evening for a few small plates and some beers and we all left very satisfied. We got calamari, pork... More

I found this to be very good place to eat. Reservations are a MUST if you have a party larger than 2. Waiter recommendations were top notch and delish!

This is our second time to Black Bottle, and we loved it...again. We ordered 4 dishes, and they were all fabulous. They also have a decent selection of wines, local and imported beers, and unique cocktails. Service is good, overall. Hip ambiance.

I dined here with my wife on Valentine's day. The ambience is good, the parking was a little difficult to find on a rainy night but with their help we figured it out. We tried the Indian fare and it was interesting, they had done a pretty good job making it especially for a joint that isn't known for Indian... More

Great industrial/wood themed décor. high ceilings. low lighting. all make for a cozy, fun, intimate space. Service is always great. Tapas style menu is tons of fun. Food quantities are high, prices are great. Highly recommend this as a restaurant to hit in Bellevue.

As soon as we walked in the staff person said that the kitchen was closing soon, so we ordered three appetizers and some wine. The food was VERY good. Not items I would normally order, but most enjoyable. We got a second glass of wine and continued to visit, but the staff person wanted to wrap up his shift and... More

This is a quite pricey place. But the food and drinks are pretty good. Especially there is one appetizer which is dry ribs, really really unique. I have never had anything like that before. But still, the food is on a pricey side for that portion size. Drinks are relatively cheaper than their food. They make very good drinks too.

This place was recommended by a waitress at one of the other bar/restaurants in downtown Bellevue, and it was a good one......... We had to wait about 10 minutes for a table, the place was bustling without being too noisy. The sharing dishes are superb, we were a party of 4 guys and we ordered 8 dishes in total which... More

Food was actually great, not that it was a surprise but out of seven dishes we had two were over done. I will suggest the duck, yellow fin and pulled ribs (wow). Service just sucked!

Forgot to make reservations on a Friday night (big mistake these days in downtown Bellevue) and had to wait 40 minutes for a table. After 5 minutes, managed to score two seats at the bar while we waited. The bar area is decent size but not many seats, so we were lucky. Bartender Victor is a hoot -- great to... More
