Bottega Ratings and Reviews
The meal was wonderful. We chose it for the proximity to the hotel and were not disappointed. The waiter was a gem which added to the experience. I would recommend that if you order the special that you ask the price of the dish as it was pretty pricey. Would definitely return to this restaurant
With the exception of one of the 2 co-managers, this restaurant is by far one of the best I’ve tried in NYC. Service was 8/10, food was 10/10. This was a birthday occasion, and they could’ve cared less. Nothing special at or the end of dinner like most restaurants in NYC. Which brings me to what really rubbed me wrong, the one co-Manager who was rude and condescending; also, we were never read the specials. The waiter was somewhat rude at first but warmed up. The food is superb, the wine list extensive and reasonable. I’d go again but would definitely avoid the one maitre’d . And if you’re going to CE,berate a special occasion, make sure someone who cares knows.
NEVER DISAPPOINTED WITH THE SERVICE, FOOD AND VALUE FOR THE VALUE FOR THE MONEY. TRY TO DINE AT BOTTEGA AT LEAST EVERY FEW WEEKS. NEVER TIRE OF THE RESTAURANT. SERVICE IS EXCEPTIONAL WITH FOOD TO MATCH. HAVE DINED AT BOTTEGA NUMEROUS TIMES AND NEVER A DISAPPOINTMENT.
We were offered a table inside or in the outdoor area. As a group of 6 they had two tables waiting for us. The bread kept coming (we had two children who gobbled away at it), very good service in general. The sword fish was cooked well, and the spinach risotto was outstanding. The special of green and white homemade linguini with seafood was tasty, well prepared and fresh. The children had their food prepared exactly as they wished with no difficulty, and when one of our party asked for something not on the menu, gnocci marinara, they were happy to comply. The teramiso for dessert was light and delicious. A nice family friendly easy late afternoon dinner.
We had a delightful mid-week dinner. The atmosphere was lovely and the food delicious. Service was friendly and efficient. Our waiter was very accommodating with our special requests. Portions were appropriately sized and well seasoned. The noise level was not intrusive. We look forward to a return visit in the near future.
Overall the food didn't feel worth the money. Started with "crostini," which we weren't impressed by. Bread was very thick and wasn't grilled or toasted, tomato topping was oily and the bean topping was un(der?) seasoned. Entrees (salmon and ravioli) were nothing to write home about and were not hot when they arrived.
Entree was excellent. Appetizer was ok. Dessert was disappointing. Lemon tart was too sweet . Wine by the glass overpriced.and a request for a wine list was refused. Accordingly I give waitservicev low marks. Noise level was loud and intrusive.
It's a neighborhood restaurant that's ok for an occasional meal in a large, comfortable dining room since entrees are very good to excellent .
