Amazingly good.

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... read 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

If you are in the mood for horrible service and warm wine, this is your place. It took 40 minutes after we were seated for anyone to speak to us. When we mentioned we had been waiting, he questioned us and left without taking our order. We were not given a chance to taste the wine before it was poured.... More

My second visit to this place with colleagues while visiting Bellevue on a business trop. I have to say thé drinks are very creative and tastey but the food is spectacular. Try the shrimps (Perfect, not over done or underdone), or the octopus chorizo hash (a new flavor!) or the pork kimchee (still thé best)... Come back again and try... More

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!
