Diner Reviews
  • "Have always enjoyed the Bottle In Hermosa & am glad to have one in the Riveria. The food was very good, bar is also good. The noise level was almost unbearable. I had to nearly yell across one small table to be heard. It also took 45 min to get our entree. Despite these annoyances, I would go back. I may try sitting outside though."

  • "I have been to the original Bottle Inn for over 25 years and love it. This is lacking the same warmth level of service. Food was good but without the other elements of the original not the same value. Definitely fits a more casual and "beach" crowd if that appeals to someone."

  • "3 friends and I went for dinner, our friends first time as we have been before. It's a great location (though at sunset the blinds don't shield enough of the direct sunlight). Service is very friendly and wine knowledgeable. The portions are overflowing, each diner enjoyed their meals. To note, the shrimp dish my wife ordered was a bit dry and calamari tasted over done/spongy and luke warm. The stuffed shells, ravioli, and polenta appetizer were all very good."

  • "With a party of four, we had two appetizer 4, dishes and desert. All items were exceptionally prepared and you could taste the freshness troughout. Started with Carcioffi Fritti and Mozzerella in Carrozza Antipasti both fabulous. Main dishes were Ravioli di Pollo e Tre Formaggi, Gnocchi Al Pesto, Lasagna di Polenta and Conchiglioni. We tried each others and we all agreed it was the fresh sauces that stood out. Kudo's are in order for the sauce guy. Can't say enough. It would have received a 5 rating except we did not receive our bread for a long time (but it wsa really good) and a bit pricey. But in reality the price was worth it. Highly recommend, and we will be back."

  • "The food here is just excellent. Every part of our meals was very well prepared. The risotto was tasty and firm (not gluey. As the often are). The Scalone (a signature dish) was crisp and piquant. Tiger shrimp tender and well sauced. Roasted potatoes were terrific. The South Bay needs more restaurants like this where the focus us the food rather than the scene. Could be a little quieter, but I have seen much worse. Overall a great dining experience!"

  • "Excellent food and service. Decent, but not great, by-the-glass wine selection. But, as was the case when I first ate at this Bottle Inn shortly after it opened, it is still too noisy. Fortunately there were not as many diners inside, as it was nice enough for some to be outdoors, but the noise level still negatively affects the ambiance. There are relatively simple things that can be done to bring down the noise level. The most disappointing thing is that we mentioned it to the manager back in April, and he acknowledged the excessively high noise and said they were working on it, but two months later it is still the same. Not cozy, or conducive to conversation, but on the bright side, the discussion two tables away was fascinating!"

  • "We were sat 30 minutes after our reservation right next to an over crowded bar, I could have placed my wine glass on the various rear ends that, literally, were hovering over our table. 1 hour and 5 minutes after we were sat the artichoke appetizer came out, it was mediocre at best - not crispy, center tasted like it was right out of the can. Pesto gnocchi dinner - the gnocchi were barely showing above the heavy cream based soup, I mean sauce. It was rather tasty, though. Restaurant made cheesecake - it was good, the thick crust tasted a bit stale or like a butter alternative (vegetable oil?) was used as it was not very flavorful. Overall - OK in a pinch, if you have the spare time to wait, but not a destination."

  • "Tried the Bottle Inn Riviera for the first time. It was a quiet Monday evening and my wife and I walked from our home. We sat in a nice table in back by the wine storage shelves. The food and service was excellent and the wine list is better than most. We will be returning soon."

  • "Having missed lunch during our drive into town to visit friends the 4:15 pm reservation was perfect. Good selection of wines by the glass and draft beers. Seated immediately - our mains were pasta special for 2 of us (Mahi, Salmon & Shrimp with delicious vodka sauce), Veal Picatta and salad with salmon added. Server was pleasant, though there were a couple of delays in food arrival as she forgot one salad before the main until reminded and the added salad salmon was not cooked as requested. Small things that were corrected. Salads were neutral in flavor - maybe they are made ahead & kept cold, losing flavor? We had an enjoyable meal and would return if in the area."

  • "If you want good food go to Bottle Inn. This is not about upscale dining, just decent food. Carpaccio beef and fish fresh and tasty. Chicken Parmigiana was 7/10 but better then most in the area. Artichoke fritters app was enjoyed by the table. Scampi was a large portion, but the sauce was a bit heavy. Anyone under 25 will like the garlic bread! This will only get better with time, for now its worth a try. "

  • "I want to like this place, I really do. The first time we went, we were treated to the worst service I have ever experienced without any recognition of fault on their part. Went back a few nights ago because I think they just had some opening jitters the first time and the food was quite good. Sure enough, the service was flawless, but the food was the problem. The salad was wilted and soggy to the point where some of the lettuce was translucent and draped around the tines of my fork. The fish was cooked right, but very bland. The mash potatoes where the only thing I enjoyed. If this place survives the next six months, I’ll give it a third try."

  • "All four dishes and appertizers had far too much salt, whether Pasta, Osso Bucco or Chicken Picatta. Considering this is a spinoff from a well established restaurant overall the experience was very disappointing."
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "Overall, I enjoyed my dining experience here. It was however, cold inside due to the fact that they have the door wide open and the rear door wide open and it is a pretty small space. Bread was decent but kind of dry but my pasta was very good."

  • "Our first visit to the Redondo Beach location. The food was great. Large portions of pasta for both of us, so we'll enjoy the leftovers."

  • "If you want a loud place for dinner where you have to shout at your partner, then this is the place for you. I was looking for a fine dining place where the ambiance was quiet and relaxing that served great food -- well this is not the place. The food was great, but I couldn't enjoy it since I was constantly yelling, asking my companion to repeat himself, and protecting my ears -- and yes, they actually did hurt from all of the noise! The owner dropped by and said they were in the process of trying to fix the noise problem. This place is off my list until I have confirmation that this issue is fixed -- which is really too bad -- because the food is good. Go the Hermosa branch and leave RB to the barbarians. "

  • "We keep going back because it is a great location and we love the Hermosa Beach, Bottle Inn. The waitress wasn't very good and she was training a new waitor who was not good. Gave food to wrong people. Didn't bring pasta to go worth two meals, then just brought one pasta for the two to share. Pretty disappointed in the service."

  • "I loved the Bottle Inn in Hermosa Beach and am so glad they opened one within walking distance to me! Our meal was delicious and the Patio dining was very nice. Will definitely be going back! "

  • "The Bottle Inn Riviera is far too small inside and the noise level so loud that we could not always hear our server let alone talk to each other. Maybe outside on the patio might be OK. The food was good but too pricey for a place with no view and not much space. "
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "The hostess did not have our reservation, she told me "the open table thing doesn't work here", lucky for us there was a table. The waitress was sweet, but just couldn't get the order coordinated. Most of all, they do not serve the Coffee Americana, my favorite from Hermosa. With so many other choices out there, I don't think I'll be back."

  • "This is the second time I have been to the Bottle Inn Riviera and both times were fabulous! We sat outside this time because it was too noisey inside last time. The dinner was the best we have ever had! Thank you!!"

  • "Lasagna was disgusting, chicken parm was just ok, extremely noisy, no air conditioning in the area by the bar, it was the hottest evening and they sat us by the door with the sun in our faces. There were 6 of us and we all said we'd not go back. Sorry. "

  • "Two of took our wives here for Mothers' Day hoping it would approach its Hermosa Beach sibling's quality. It did. Ossobuco was outstanding. Filet seasoned and cooked perfectly. Lasagna interesting and delicious update on an old standard. Saltimboca to die for. Maybe our first visit wasn't a large enough sample, but if future visits are as good, hooray for the Riviera!"

  • "The Bottle Inn has excellent food, however their service is lacking. I think they have problems in the kitchen, it took forever for us to get our food. They did comp a bottle of wine because of the delay in getting our dinners. I don't think they are set up to have their restaurant full. It's a shame because the food is amazing."

  • "We were put at a high top bar table while we wait for a dinner table. Another group got the same treatment. The other group got seated, but we didn't. We complained, but were told by the hostess that she could maybe seat us outside in a little while. We decided to leave and the owner made good and we got seated. He said "you just were not dealing with the right person""

  • "We thought the new Bottle Inn was fabulous!! Having been regulars at Hermosa - we knew we would like it, but did not know how much! We can not wait to return! The menu is diverse, many other entrees I want to try. What I had was delicious, and suited me perfectly - the staff could not have been more knowledgeable, friendly and helpful, making our special occasion of my friends birthday a real pleasure. Thanks Casey and Arturo-we'll see you soon!"

  • "We have been fans of the original Bottle Inn in Hermosa so when I heard they had opened up a new location we couldn't wait to try it out. It's a different feel - a bit more modern, open than the HB location, and it has a little patio for outdoor seating. The food was as good as the HB location, and the service was attentive. Smaller venue but it should do well. Beer and wine only so my friends and hubby who like mixed drinks had to "settle" but other than that we enjoyed the night out and I will likely return."

  • "My last visit to Bottle Inn was a birthday celebration with family members. We were comfortably seated at a round table, which was great for conversation across the table .... The waiter was not only cordial & pleasant, he was efficient and went out of his way to accommodate our dining needs. Last but not least, the menu is loaded with tasty Italian fare and everything we ordered (from Pasta to Linquini-Clam to Gnocci to Seafood) was excellent and prepared with authentic italian flavor! I will definitely return, whether it's for a large family dinner, a wine tasting or a quiet dinner with my husband.... You won't be disappointed with this neighborhood treasure! "
