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

Some favorites: - bacon lemon scallops - smoked wild boar ribs - pear & gorgonzola flatbread - a salad with burrata cheese (first... More

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 wine and... 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
