Great way to catch up

I was lucky enough to spend the evening catching up with an old friend at Black Bottle. We had been recommended by a friend, and turned out to be a great place! We were looking for a place to catch up that wasn't going to be too hectic. They have a great environment setup. We enjoyed some great... read more

We were in town for a wedding. The last of the out of town guests and family went in for dinner and the food and the service were absolutely incredible!! We all picked a dish to try and shared with the rest of the table. The broccoli is a must have and the fish tacos were great! Love this place... More

This restaurant is so much fun to go to! The menu is creative, extensive & inexpensive enough that you can try many things. The service is excellent. First the best: The wilted kale & spinach salad was one of the best salads I have ever eaten (and I am really old and have eaten many salads.) Somehow, the bacon flavor... More

I've been to Black Bottle several times, and enjoyed the experience every time--nice atmosphere, excellent choice of tapas (including some specials that are fantastic--try the boar short ribs), and good service make it a place I'll return to!

I've driven past this restaurant many times but never made it in. My wife and I did an early Valentines dinner. Luckily we eat early. We got there around 5:45. There's validated parking around back. Garage is pretty tight. Getting into the restaurant, its a nice open and bustling atmosphere with good selection of music. A full menu with nice... More

This place is a great place to hang with friends, family, or coworkers. With a shared plates style dining, the food enhances and drives conversation as well. I frequent this location and almost always take out of towners here as it is a unique and positive experience every time. I would say if you are looking for an intimate dining... More

I come here A LOT, it is so good for drinks and snacks when you don't necessarily want a big meal, and just as good when you are hungry if you are ok with sharing plates. Good range of wine and cocktails, I really like the food that comes in small sharing portions, my only complaints are that it can... More

I recently met girlfriends for dinner at Black Bottle after holiday shopping. The restaurant was busy (but not overly busy) and had a good vibe. The set-up is nice - can accommodate a lot of different sizes of parties and types of dining experiences (long tables, booths, etc.). The evening was aggravating. Service was slow and our waiter was anything... More

We met our son, his girlfriend and her parents for apps and dinner on a Sunday night. Had a reservation, was immediately seated and had a very friendly, helpful server. We had 3 of the happy hour apps (cauliflower fritters, stuffed jalapenos and endive chicken boats) which were all ok, but wouldn't likely order again. We loved the Malbec short... More

Very nice atmosphere. We had table reservation for our group of four. It is mud because it is hard to get table during rush hours. We came early and our table was not ready. It was not problem as we stayed at bar and tasted some very nice IPAs. When we got our table, service was very friendly and everything... More
