Wife and I went here for our anniversary dinner, because of generally favorable reviews and our assessment of its menu. We were disappointed in the food. The menu gives very fancy names and descriptions of food that is basically quite ordinary.

Maybe it was the wrong place to go with a group but it wasn't appropriate for individual orders. The server had a very negative attitude that we weren't sharing food, needed individual checks and wanted our own food. I think the food was ok. Can't really remember it as the server was so annoying. At least my company was good.... More

Eclectic menu with tapas sized portions. Trendy ambience. No kids allowed after 3pm. Bacon wrapped scallops are great. The rest of the dishes we ordered were average. Kinda pricey for what you get.

We had limited restaurant selections after 9pm on a Sunday in Bellevue area and this was the option we chose as it was rated pretty high. We should have taken a look at the menu because it is very select options...do not look for any starches (rice, potatoes, etc.) and substitutions are not an option (a few entrees included pork...

We dined at Black bottle and between four people had 5 different things. They were all amazing; the duck, short ribs, flat bread, salads, and the garlic bread was one of the bests ever. The atmosphere is a bit too dark for my taste. Like the low light but felt a bit overdone. The service was great but the white... More

The Happy Hour menu is very succinct (aka too small), but pretty good. The Happy Hour wines for a wine bar are terrible. I would definitely recommend a glass of wine off the normal menu. A happy hour deal is not a deal if the wine is bad. They need to stop trying to be cool, and just concentrate on... More

Nice concept. Small portions to share. Some are very good. Some are average. Bill was more than okay.

Everytime we go there the service is good and food is even better! Wouldn't recommend it to an enemy, because they don't deserve such good stuff :)

I like this place, its kind of eclectic, kind of laid back. Its a cool place to grab a meal with your friend. The food is interesting and tasty. The service is efficient. Just a great place to eat on a Tuesday night or Sunday lunch if you know what I mean.

***alert*** this is not a family friendly resto it is for 21+. If that is not a deterrent for you, I do recommend going. We sat out on the patio to have some tapas and wine late one night and really enjoyed the overall experience. Our server was great and she gave good recommendations. The short ribs with the malbec...
