Split the cheese cake for dessert. Light and sooo good. The sundried tomato garlic and olive oil they give you with bread? This was out of this world. Have to go back just to get more. They said the recipe was a secret and I understand why.
Service was excellent and food came out amazingly fast. Keep in mind if your in a hurry to eat.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMService is impeccable! FoodService is impeccable! Food is fantastic! We always order off the specials menu and have never been disappointed. Wait staff is knowledgeable and very friendly.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMI have been to Bottega a fewI have been to Bottega a few times as it is really close to my apartment. Service is consistently great, the space is lovely and the food is good. We ordered one dish that I have had before that was not nearly as good as it was in the past, but I am hopeful that it was a one-time issue and everything else we ordered was great. Dessert was delicious, as was the wine. Will return, especially in spring or summer to sit outside.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMI've been there several timesI've been there several times since it has opened and it never disappoints.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service wereThe food and service were excellent. The hostess was aware that we were a couple who wanted some privacy and seated us appropriately.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent meal and serviceExcellent meal and service always. The specials are worth trying as they are particularly tasty.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat addition to the neighborhoodWe were so pleased by our visit this past week. The room is really pretty, lined with bottles, servers were so accomodating and helpful and the food was very good and well-priced. We all started with salads, the mache and avocado had a light shallot dressing and the caesars were appropriately cheesy and tasty. We shared some fish dishes and the chef accommodated our wish to change the presentation on the branzino. Portions are not large, so I don't think we'd share entrees again, but it was enough for our small party of women.
I had heard less than glowing reviews shortly after Bottega opened, but it seems to have hit its stride!3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service and BoteggaThe food and service and Botegga is always outstanding. I highly recommend this restaurant for small or larger dinners with friends. There is a nice wine selection as well.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMTotally delightful. My friendsTotally delightful. My friends kept thanking me for suggesting Bottega. Subdued lighting, well spaced tables, competent service allow delicious food to shine. A wonderful counterpoint to the bleakness of Second Avenue2/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
