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...

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
