Blue Bottle Cafe
**The Blue Bottle Cafe manages their Saturday night reservations exclusively by phone. Please call the restaurant directly for availability.
very good food and service..........restaurant was very chilly inside.
This is a wonderful little gem of a restaurant. The chef Aaron Philipson and his wife, Rory, who is the pastry chef, are a match made in heaven. Aaron has an amazing ability to put together flavors that are creative and delicious. I have never had a meal here the that I didn't love. Rory's desserts are the icing on the cake. (pun intended). We love this restaurant and you will too!
My wife and I have traveled all over the US and around the world. We enjoy Blue Bottle as much as any of the upscale restaurants that we've ever eaten in.
The food is always excellent. One of my favorite restaurants.
Our favorite go to place. Consistently great meals off an interesting, changing menu. Value priced for the quality of the ingredients and cooking techniques.
Everything was great and the owner is fabulous She is happy , funny and responsive no matter how busy or if you spilled your child drink
Everything from a cozy table to every item we ordered from appetizer to dessert was presented beautifully and absolutely delicious. The Blue Bottle never disappoints!! The scallops are the best, the pork chop is moist and tender, the duck perfect.
everything was perfect
we shared various entrees deserts, appetizers
the waitress was very attentive, the owners so friendly, the chef very talented
WHAT A GREAT FIND !!!!❤️
My husband & I had a fabulous lunch .
Food , service .. excellent !!!
We will definitely be back.
The hostess/owner couldn’t have been nicer.
She even looked up & wrote down directions for us to get home. ( not from that area)....
It’s byob...we wish we lived closer, it would be our new go to place...👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Mushroom soup delicious. Best chicken pot pie I’ve ever had. And the mango pavlova for desert was over the moon!! Great lunch.
The white bean soup with the venison made a perfect late-winter meal.
The food at Blue Bottle is always creative using fresh ingredients. The menu changes seasonally. They always have something vegan on the menu. It’s also a good value for this level of quality. Service is not a strong suit at Blue Bottle. It was inattentive and slow.
The food was very delicious!
Love that it’s a BYO
Service was excellent!
Can’t wait to come back !
Outstanding in every respect. The food was beyond delicious. They cheerfully accommodated my husband’s dietary restrictions, too.
What a great restaurant. Everything was outstanding especially food and service.
The food is always excellent. I have been there many times and never had a bad experience. The $30, 3 course menu on Wednesday is an unbeatable value.
The Blue Bottle always does a wonderful job with the food and has a great service team that is professional without being at all stuffy. The Wednesday night prix fixe menu is a great value. I'm always excited to check Facebook to see what this week's choices are.
Awesome food and service. The owner made a lunch that gave me everything I wanted to address food allergies. Such nice people too. Wonderful experience.
This was our first time here and it was excellent. My boyfriend got the scallops and I got the seafood combo. And the food was amazing. The staff was also amazing. We will defiantly be going back.
One of the best restaurants in the Hopewell, Princeton, Montgomery and Hillsborough area. Always a good to great meal. Appetizers are a little overpriced. My husband and I shared a salad and it was good amount. BYOB makes it even better....
There were 4 of us and we all concluded that the food served was excellent!
From the moment we walked in til the moment we left, we were treated like valued customers!
Our waiter was fantastic!
We drove 25 minutes to get there and we will do it again!!
The time between courses was a little slow, but luckily we were not in a hurry.
The quality of the food is very high. The chef is imaginative and the food is served the right way. The restaurant was almost empty for lunch when we were there on a snowy day - so I can't comment on the noise level or service if the restaurant had been full. We would definitely return based on the food.
Excellent! The owner is delightful!
Awesome place especially for couples.
Great food !! Amazing host. Love her very much.
Blue Bottle Cafe is one of our favorites. The food is always amazing and so are the owners! Highly recommend Blue Bottle Cafe!
This was arguably one of the best meals I have had in the last 5 years!! This food was beyond words. So amazing I recommend this little gem to all!
My favorite place to dine! Love the food and dessert too!
Creative cuisine in a relaxed setting. My wife and I come here for special occasions. We most enjoy coming for lunch, especially on their covered sun porch. It is usually less busy at lunch. Food is consistently excellent, and service attentive. We find weekend nights to be too crowded for our taste so we go at other times.
Every dish was a work of art. Delicious, perfect size portions, prepared to our taste. A Valentine's Day to remember!
Special menu for Valentines Day was just that: Special. Service was, as always, excellent - every course was perfect and we truly enjoyed a wonderful meal.
Lovely lunch time atmosphere! Service was top notch! Food was delicious and creative. We’ve already made reservations to return for one of their Wednesday night specials.
I passed over the venison when Rory really recommended the grilled Kurobuta pork chop. It really was outstanding! The accompanying bacon Parmesan orzo and sautéed spinach were ideal with it. As for a starter, the onion tart for me was perfect.
Everyone was extremely accommodating and very friendly. It was my Birthday And my life has had many ups and downs lately, mostly with my daughters cancer and my sons health issues. My husband and I do try to take breaks and eat out and I will tell you it was a pleasure to find your Restauraunt. The food was excellent. Your Menu is unique and we plan to return soon for both lunch and dinner. Your chef is one of the best. Honestly my brother was a chef in NY and I hope you appreciate what a great , gifted chef you have. I never write this much we do eat out fairly often it’s just I’m so glad we found The Blue Bottle Cafe. . We hope to return very soon. Thank you again. Barbara
Great dinner. We are local, but haven't been here in quite a while. Definitely will add to our "go to" list. Excellent meal and service
Superb! Outstanding, plan to come back. At lease every three months
Love this place! It is one of my absolute favorite places to eat in the entire world and I have traveled in France, Italy, Austria and Switzerland, the countries that pride themselves in the quality of their food. The food is always superb and the service is impeccable and warm. Thank you Blue Bottle!
excellent dinner, great salmon tartar, outstanding sea bass, professional service
Never disappoints! Since moving to Hopewell 4+ years ago, Blue Bottle has been (and remains!) one of most favorite restaurants to frequent. From salads straight through to desserts, you can tell they have both passion and skill for what they do. Love too that it's a BYOB. Always feels like a treat to go, whether it's for a special occasion, a Saturday night, or even during the week. We feel fortunate to have a gem like this in our town.
