Good vibe. Great eats. Packed with flavor!

I walk by this place all the time, and never knew it was a tapas joint. We went for an early dinner and the service was helpful, efficient and superb. Music was great too. I was surprised how generous the portions were for tapas --- huge bonus points. Then, blown away by the pulled pork tacos... read more

First off the service was excellent! Waitstaff attentive friendly and offered great suggestions. The Pom and Greek salads were excellent! The butter lettuce and the pom were my favorite but the Greek salad was great. I had the scallops and daughter had the ribs. Both excellent. Drinks were great. Cherry tart for dessert. Very tasty. We sat outside was nice,... More

We met with friends for a wonderful tapas and drinks dinner. They have a great selection of sharable serving size entries and appetizers. The service was excellent and we had a great time talking. Tables and seating are laid out for plenty of light and ample room to talk without hearing the table chat behind you. They have a nice... More

If you're tired of the same old thing and you want flavor and creativity, this place is THE place. Plenty of craft beers and a menu that looks like tapas, but can really feed you BIG time, w/out breaking the bank. Bring your appetite and your brain, because they're both going to be happy. I had the Wild Boar ribs... More

Fun way to entice the palate with different dishes. Service was fantastic even after we were done eating and just visiting.

We stopped at Black Bottle for some after work drinks and snacks. Their Broccoli Blasted is by far the best way to enjoy this vegetable I know of. Charred and crisp without any overpowering spices. Very nice. The atmosphere is fun and the wait staff is friendly and inviting.

A super busy place, I didn't have reservations and had to hover like a vulture until a bar stool opened up. I had to wait about 20 minutes or so. A pretty good booze selection, I was happy with my wine and beer selections. Food was quite nice, I enjoyed some well executed mussels. Pro tip - make reservations.

Visited for the first time during a recent work trip and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. The Charred Broccoli and signature flat breads are very good indeed and go well with one of the local beers.

My husband felt like having tapas so we decided to give Black Bottle a try. They validate parking at an underground garage for 2 hours. We were there in time for happy hour so we were each able to have a couple of glasses of wine off the happy hour menu. They only have 4 tapas on the happy hour... More
