good beer and food selection

This is my second visit to the Black Bottle. It was as good as the first which was over 1 year ago. The beer selection was excellent with a few locals and some regional craft brews. The food is purposely served in small portions which is just what I was looking for. Try the pulled pork tacos.

I highly recommend black bottle in Bellevue for a date night. They have an outdoor seating area but request to sit on the side of the building so you're not listening to Bellevue way traffic. The food is always consistently good and the service is always friendly it is also great for large parties

I repeatedly eat here and meet friends here - the food is delicious (my favourite is pork belly and Kimchi) and they do great pints of Mac n Jack!

I've eaten at this spot twice, close to the Hyatt, and easy outdoor seating. The food was exceptional both times - and I only wish I was not dining alone on a business trip because the plates really should be shared. Great selection, variety of cuisine and flavours. I will continue to visit this spot.

There are many restaurant choices in Bellevue, but this is our favorite. This is a mix between ambiance, food, drinks and value for money. We love the hanger steak, bib-salad, shrimps and octopus. The food is great and the value for money is good when comparing with their peers. We love the ambiance and high ceiling. This place is packed... More

Amazing array of tapas which are great for sharing with friends. Also pretty good selection of wine and cocktails. We went for work and it was a great way to try a lot of amazing different food options. Only bad thing was we went with a large group and I left hungry still. I recommend going with a smaller group... More

This is definitely a very cool place. We ordered a bunch of food to share. Some of it was really excellent (e.g., the Tuna carpaccio), other was ok (the stuffed olives), and other not so good, i.e., the flatbread with pears and gorgonzola. Let me focus on this last one. Definitely they should have called it "onions with pears and... More

We cam here for a late snack on the advice of our concierge (we stayed across the street at the Hyatt). Ordered 3 items from the tapas menu - asian chicken, flatbread with pear and gorgonzola and the most delicious kale salad. Service was quick and friendly and the place has a very cool vibe. Server was quirky but provided... More

I visited the Black Bottle this week at the tip of a friend who knew some of the staff. I couldn't have been more pleased! Great beer selection, great appetizer/tapas menu and a really hop and cool atmosphere. The service was excellent and the waiter hooked our large group up with a phenomenal set of dishes. The broccoli was surprisingly... More

Great food, terrific beer and friendly wait staff. This is a place we take family and friends to when they come to visit. It's also a favorite place to meet friends. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. You can share a number of dishes and try a variety of terrific food. I love the boar ribs!
