“Just OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

No happy hour pricing, but the pricing is decent.

Their calamari is delish - it's spicy and not fried and delish!

They have some unique drinks; it's a fun place to stop for a minute to grab a drink, a light bite to eat, and move on.

“Incredibly inventive small plates to share”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

Black bottle has really amped up the creativity on small plates. Harrisa lamb meatballs with paneer. Beautiful seafood ceviche. Pastrami and Swiss crostini topped with a beautiful light slaw. Goat cheese stuffed peppadew. Exceptionally nice--there are a lot of veggie-based small plates to share--not all meat and cheese. Only downside--hard to choose which ones to try, and you can't try them all because servings are very generous.

“Fun times”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012 via mobile

Great gathering place for drinks and tapas. My friends and I enjoyed prosecco, flat breads, greens, fried chicken, olives and scallops. Our server was very attentive even on a busy night. The only negative, it was really loud, so hard to hear.

“Don't Miss This Place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2012

Colleagues and I enjoyed Black Bottle Postern in the heart of downtown Bellevue last night. What we found was a lively happy hour in an open environment with overhead disco music, standing room only, great service, and amazing small plates of food.

We tried the ceviche, flatbread with pear/gorgonzola/onion topping, and the pulled pork tacos. They were all amazing! We can't wait to go back to try more and the restaurant validates parking in the building garage for 3 hours.

Don't all rush there at once, we want to get in for another visit!!

“fun night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

Went here first for a friends' birthday in March and have returned a handful of times.

It's hard for me to get out much with 3 little ones but if I do, I love this place. It's fairly close to me, very reasonable for this city and the food and service are great!

I've tried and loved the gorgonzola and bechamel flatbreads. The tacos, cream chicken, fried chicken are all good. And my hubs really liked the porkbelly and kimchi!
This place is laid back and doesn't seem to have the more pretentious air about it some of the other Bellevue locales do! A great time to be had here. Try it!
