Excelent meal. Service was great. Would definitely go again.
Always delicious! Bottagra never disappoints. The food and drinks are always top notch. A lively vibe is fun for groups
Joe our server was fabulous. Everything we had, salad with warm goat cheese, chicken scarpellio and Berkshire pork chop was delicious. Highly recommend!!!
Nice quiet dinner. Food, drinks and service are always on point. We live in town and it’s reasonably priced so we come often. Bottagra never disappoints!! Hope they stick around for a long time!
Great for weekdays...too crowded for us on weekends and a little too noisey
Dinner was very nice. Busy as it should be for a Saturday night. Bar was busy. It was noisy and loud bc the room is wide open and there were lots of birthdays.
Excellent food, service, drinks as always!!! Never disappointed!!! It's always noisy but still worth going!
Awful. Extremely noisy. Couldn’t have a conversation. Crowded and cramped. Even though we mentioned 3x we had a birthday they never acknowledged it. Ordered beef carpaccio and could barely find it beneath the greens heaped on top of it. Thought I received a salad instead. Rack of lamb fatty and gamey. Never wrote a bad review before. Very disappointed!
Bottagra continues to execute at the highest level in dining. They understand their customers, treat them like family, and are truly concerned about their dining experience. Never dull and predictable, their specials continue to amaze. This is IT in dining for NJ.
Definitely advise making a reservation. Was very busy, but the staff seemed to keep up with the pace. Loved the food as usual. Cocktails were superb.
Upscale and beautiful interior - a lively and spirited happening crowd on a Saturday night. Service and wine selection went above and beyond. Our server Joe was personable and on his game. Can’t wait to go back.
Perfect for every night dining with the family or for date night. Food was served in large portions, came out at the perfect time, and tasted amazing. The staff did their job and beyond. Would highly recommend. Saw larger rooms for parties as well.
We dined day after Valentine’s Day and everything was fantastic ...We shared the pizza special for appetizer which was one the best pizzas I’ve had in NJ area. My girlfriend had the swordfish (so fresh) and i had the braised beef short ribs with sun dried tomato and goat cheese polenta which was amazing.
P.S if you like Gin try their Premium Gin & Tonics which are made with all fresh ingredients served in a big glass with a bottle of tonic water on the side so u can add the table! Great touch! Beautiful presentation!
The food was delicious! I do wish, however, that the Valentine's Day Menu had more options. Very pricey for only one or two things I would/could eat. I would go back because the food is delicious on a regular night but may skip out on exclusive menus.
All sizzle and no steak. Food was expensive and mediocre at best. Veal Milanese was over cooked as was the Osso Bucco. I understand that it was Valentines Day so very busy. But I didn’t pay anything less for the lower standard of the food.
Valentine’s Day Diner was everything you could want in a great setting, not crowded, the service was very attentive but not pushy.
The food was excellent. I’ll be back soon.
First time at this restaurant. I made a reservation for 4 people at 5:15 on a Sunday. When we arrived at the restaurant we were seated in a small room right off the entrance to the restaurant. Disappointed the dining room was not available. Although the room was not what we expected the food was over the top excellent!!
Everything was fine except the outrageous $9 charge for home made seltzer water. Basically being charged for Tap Water.
Gracious service, excellent food and specials and drink specials, nice wine list.
Excellent food, impeccable service and lovely ambiance marred by an incredibly annoying noise level. The noise was so pervasive that it was difficult to hear our companion across a table for four. Go when is is not mobbed- EG Sunday through Friday.
The food was great and the service was excellent
nice variety on the menu. Everything ordered with great taste. Grilled pulpo, Chicken fantasia, dont foeget the hot zeppolis
Food and service great. Only issue was the space between tables. Wait staff constantly hit the chairs squeezing through tables. Hard for staff and a bit much for guests. Food was great.
Bottagra is as good as it gets. No reason to go to NYC when you have food of this quality in NJ. Creative, exceptional meals served by a friendly, attentive staff , that remembers your name. Great drinks and great conversation with the bartenders makes this a “Cheers” like restaurant environment. Add in Alex and Alexa who great you with a smile, and Angie who treats you like family, and you can’t go anywhere else
Great food, great atmosphere, service is always attentive... this is our go-to restaurant!
Came in with friends. I've been here a couple times and it only gets better. The service is wonderful, they are knowledgeable of the menu and wine list, always a mouth-watering special offered tableside and home-made cocktails that don't skimp on the booze. Wish could come more often. I originally came in after reading online reviews and write-ups in the paper, but now I come back for the food and atmosphere that makes me feel very welcome. Great for dates and, like most recently, just to hang out with some friends for good food and drinks.
Simply Fantastic!! This place never Fails!
Our go to favorite spot!! Always guaranteed a great meal.
I didn't select anything above cause I would recommend for all this is my forth time here and has become my favorite place to go for a night out this last time was for my birthday my wife Thomasina made the reservations for us and my best friend and his girl friend and we all loved the drink specials and food I cant wait for valentines day to go back with my wife.
We chose Bottagra to celebrate the four January birthdays in our family. We were a party of 7 with reservations for 6 PM. Three members of our party were quite late, yet Bottagra was quite accommodating serving us drinks while we waited at the table. I mention this because many restaurants will not even seat you if your entire party is not there.
We then ordered app( tuna crisis, soup, salad - all good). Our entrees - salmon, pasta, chicken, shrimp, were also good. I do wish there were better specials to choose from as none appealed to me and I ordered from the regular menu.
Our desserts caused a bit of a problem. We had a long wait for our desserts to arrive which was strange. My son and I ordered the coconut sorbet. I ended up with one scoop of lemon sorbet and one scoop of coconut gelato. My son only got lemon sorbet. When we informed the waiter he offered us a replacement, but we opted to have the charges removed from the bill.
All in all it was a nice dinner, but I will probably choose another restaurant for our next celebration.
We have eaten at Bottagra's a few times and each visit has been wonderful. The staff is exceptional. We have never had anyone that isn't great at what they do. We will be returning and have been recommending this restaurant to our friends and family.
Picked place for belated birthday dinner. Entry was quick and cordial. Shown to table straight away. Wait staff very professional. So far so good.
I ordered tuna appy which was described as sesame coated and when plated was coated in black pepper. Too spicy for my taste. Had it been described correctly would not have ordered it. Hubby ordered carpaccio. Very nice presentation and quite tasty. Fresh and delish.
My entree choice was veal chop med rare. The flavors were amazing but the chop was served rare. Too rare for my liking so I picked at the outer cooked portion and the center was taken away uneaten. Waste of a $40 entree. Hubbies entree was striped bass. Served over black truffle risotto. Excellent choice. Very nice dish.
Home made sorbet and gelato was excellent.
Overall it was a nice time.
Note to self order meat med and not med rare.
We've been going for a few years now and Never been disappointed. Bottagra is amazing. We've had our engagement party, bridal shower, mothers day, thanksgiving, new years and have brought many friends. It's sooo good!
Very disappointed, to start they didn't have 2 bottles of wine that were listed, the third bottle was fair at best. My shrimp scampi was mushy way overcooked, my wife's veal too thick and the sauce too thick. Both boys were disappointed in their pasta dishes. Saving grace, we had a gift certificate. Wouldn't recommend.
Food was ok...nothing special but appetizers were overpriced for what you got.
Friends Holiday Dinner was amazing as usual ...This place never disappoints from the cocktails with their unique glassware to the food down to the choice of music playing in the background ! We all split a few items on the menu and specials and shared everything family style so we can each get a taste ! The owner is constantly walking around greeting everyone making sure all the guests are well taken care of!!
Xmas eve we arrived about 7:30. Service was very slow-too slow. We waited an hour and fifteen minutes for our appetizers.
Food was good but overall too slow.
This was our first visit to the restaurant. It was on Christmas Eve so I would expect things were different than on a typical night. Very crowded which caused a little confusion about the reservation. The food was prepared well and serve . I certainly will go back and enjoy it again on a more typical evening without the added excitement of Christmas Eve
Delicious food, great service, friendly staff
It's our favorite restaurant, with the best staff and incredible food. We never leave disappointed and we've never had a bad meal.
