The food was delicious, and I had no complaints except that the gnocchi portion was a little small.

Went here with a bloomspot
Went here with a bloomspot certificate and it was excellent. So much so, that I can't wait to go back! Thanks to La Bottega and Bloomspot for introducing me to this place.

La Bottega is a great spot
La Bottega is a great spot for brunch! Our group of 7 fit comfortably, and it wasn't too loud. All of the food was delicious! Our server was attentive and friendly, too. I'd definitely recommend La Bottega!

We have gone to La Bottega
We have gone to La Bottega with Parents, with our.brunch buddies, for work meetups. It scores high with everyone. Extra points for having gluten free pasta.

La bottega was great for my
La bottega was great for my friends and I to meet up with my two little boys in tow. The staff was very accommodating, we loved our food we had a great experience and we were able to sit 8 adults and 2 children very comfortably.

You can't go wrong with anything
You can't go wrong with anything on the menu, though I highly suggest the robiola pizza with truffle oil and the prawns appetizer. I go back time after time and never get tired of these two items!

The coffee and free bread
The coffee and free bread were mediocre. The rest was wonderful! I ordered the breakfast pizza and wished I could have eaten it all but my stomach couldn't take it. I took it home and ate as much as I could of it through the day. It was amazing. I loved their chicken sausage. The french toast with mascarpone was delicious (my husband had this). I would definitely go again.

One of my favorites
Love the place. Inside has such a cool look to it and a cool vibe. The garden is one of the best. My only suggestion is to get nicer outdoor furniture. It brings the coolness factor down a notch.

Can count on this place...
For good food at a decent price in a nice setting. The outside deck is a madhouse after work, but fun nonetheless.

My favorite place downtown!
On a nice day or evening you can sit outside on the deck and it's like being on vacation. I love it here!

Just an overall great place.
Just an overall great place. The prices are "fair." Not cheap, but not breaking the bank. Food is great, service is great, the actual restaurant - inside and outside - is very nice.

My first time at La Bottega was great. My guest and I shared a salad, gnocchi, pizza, and bottle of wine. Everything was delicious and well prepared. The service was attentive, although we did have to ask for several items (salt and pepper, olive oil, bread).
Otherwise it was a great time.

Hidden Gem in NYC
Normally do not write reviews but wanted to note La Bottega. Excellent food, even better ambience/environment - both inside and outside areas. Attentive service and very reasonable pricing. Delicious carpaccio with black truffle oil and arugula... amazing pizzas. And a berry tart with the most flaky, melt-in-your-mouth crust served piping hot with vanilla gelato atop. A must-see if you want a fun, outdoorsy spot right in the heart of Chelsea.

We had a great brunch at La Bottega. The day was a little bit cold but they have special heaters for those who decided to stay outside. Great food and perfect service. We´ll be back and recommend it to friends.

What a find!
I have lived in Manhattan for over 30 years and found La Bottega to be one of the best finds ever: the food, service, ambiance and decor -- all superb. All nestled in the unique and inviting space of The Maritime Hotel on 9th Ave. in West Chelsea.
La Bottega: "Welcome to New York!"

Perfect for a warm summer evening!
Two friends and I spent a wonderful, warm evening dining outside at La Bottega, and all of us were THRILLED with the experience. The food was delicious -- especially given how affordable it was -- the service was attentive, and the ambiance (eating outside in their paper lantern-lit courtyard was PERFECT. We arrived at 6:30 on a Thursday night and did NOT have to wait for a table. Highly recommended!

Beautiful Brunch Outdoors
My family came to NYC for my graduation and I wanted to give them a quintessential cosmopolitan brunch experience. The elevated outdoor patio is perfect. The ambience with hanging lanterns is exquisite. It felt like we were in Europe dining in a piazza. The brunch menu is quite diverse in tea of sweet and savory options. The truffled eggs was a hit!
6/1/2013 4:00:00 PM
A little pricey for what you get, but tasty. We sat as long as we wanted without being disturbed or rushed to pay.

It was the second time in
It was the second time in the same week that I had dined at La Bottega. All guests enjoyed themselves. The wait staff was very attentive and personable. Food was great. Cocktails were great. The view, the breeze and the people watching were also well received and enjoyable. Still a great find and still always a fun time.

First time for lunch
We were very happy with our panini, pizza and the arugula salad that came with the sandwiches- it was perfectly dressed. We also felt it was a very relaxing place at prime lunchtime. Our only thought was that it took a while for the drinks to arrive and to get refills.

Outside dining above par!
The outdoor patio is raised so you get the benefits of outdoor dining with the sidewalk traffic! The food is great, the prices are reasonable for NYC (lunch averaged about $15.00/person including beverages) and the wait staff are wonderfully attentive without being overbearing.

Great night and EXCELLENT service! However, the branzino portion was the smallest I ever had.

I enjoyed it very much. It was a balmy evening so very pleasant to dine out doors

La Bottega was able to seat our party of 20 outside. Rather than a massive long table they set up an arc of 2 groups of small rounds. It was lovely and felt intimate. They gave a a prix fixe menu that covered all appetites. Service was terrific. Orders taken promptly and food delivered at a perfect pace.

Been there before, will go back again. Very good food, great atmosphere whether dinning inside or on the terrace. Service was cheerful and prompt.

La Bottega - A NYC Staple
Excellent place across from Chelsea Market. Great food and service. Try the Pizzas or Pasta and you will not be disappointed.

Best value in the neighborhood
Good food, good service, great ambience, all at very reasonable prices

We got a booking on a Saturday night for 6 without issue. Food was good, drinks were good, service could have been more attentive but not terrible.

Always wanted to come here, loved my first dinner now I come here all the time!

A High near the High Line!
We ate at La Bottega, the restaurant in the Maritime Hotel, on 16th and 9th avenue -- a stone's throw from the High Line. We got a great travelzoo deal --- excellent pizza (we got the wild mushroom), fresh quinoa and kale salads, then striped bass special and branzino ---- throw in 2 glasses of wine -- all for $59 -- and it was quite a good deal. Service and ambiance was fine. They do have a glassed in terrace that is heated --- probably delightful in the summer. Food was all very tasty and well prepared. After, we strolled into the Maritime Hotel lobby and sat by the fire --- wonderful end to an excellent meal on a cold wintry night in NYC. we will return!

The food is great and good prices for NYC. Would recommend and go back.
