***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...

Didn't eat here, but I adored the decor, fresh and contemporary, with a great liquor and cocktail selection! The staff seemed unusually friendly. Bartender was willing to accept creative suggestions for martinis. Very clean.

One of the better places I have eaten in Bellevue. The atmosphere is relaxed, service good, and there are a good selection of drinks on offer such as local Craft Beers. The food is Tapas style, so you typically end up ordering several dishes. The ones we had were all good. Not amazing, but all good, and I would happily... More

Perhaps we expected too much; the online menu looked great for tapas lovers like us, and the reviews are largely positive. What we found, aside from really well-done drinks, was food that was average at best, very heavily salted, with unremarkable presentation. We'd return for a drink at the bar, but most certainly not for the food.

Fun unique types of food here. The flatbread's are awesome. Get the pear and Gorgonzola variety! Bar is smaller than most, but they make great drinks. Very busy and popular

Looking for something that was not an obvious chain and authentic, we found Black Bottle here on TripAdvisor and boy we are happy. A great menu with more depth than it might seem at first glance, this is a great location for anyone looking for a great meal and cocktails. Their version of a Manhattan is one of the best... More

Very comfortable friendly place to eat. The food is very good, and also a bit more expensive than similar restaurants.

This restaurant was recommended to us but we were totally disappointed. The coconut, ginger and lime ceviche was tasteless (no taste of coconut nor ginger nor lime) and was too spicy I could not eat it. The Lamb meatballs did not taste of lamb. My pinot gris was served frozen. 90 dollars for 2, this was too expensive!!

The beers are great, try the left hand milk stout a local favorite. although very busy the... More

I was in with a big group and ended up ordering oysters, scallops, prawns, meat balls, etc. All very well prepared and good. Impressed with bier selection. Service was polite and efficient, but somehow did not match with the restaurant style.
