Delish but music sucked. Kind of like muzak. Not romantic or hip IMO.
Food and service was excellent. Oscar is our favorite waiter. Disappointing that owner/manager personally refuses to abide by County Health Requirements. We will be taking our business elsewhere.
Another great dinner at the Bottle Inn! Our most favorite neighborhood restaurant...Delicious food, excellent service, comfortable atmosphere and a stones throw from the beach. Never disappoints and always a treat! :)
It took a long while for anyone to come and take order and the truth was no one even brought us menus. I had to go get it and it seemed like they were to busy to come over. I wouldn’t go back
Love the lobster pasta! The service was excellent. We shall return.
A gem in the heart of Hermosa. Wonderful food and outdoor seating with Ocean views.
Food was incredible and service amazing.
Ambiance wonderful, sitting outside lovely. Service very professional and attentive. Food was very good but seems a bit overpriced. Not sure when I will be able to return because of price.
Wine Wednesday's are the best. Half priced selected bottles of wine. The food is delicious too! I love sitting outside and they have plenty of heaters!
loved the food and wine. great date night. highly recommend
Great Italian on the water in the South Bay
Great People Watching
Family get together
We had a delicious evening sitting at an outside table with friends. The Artichokes & Rustic Salad were outstanding but I can’t comment on much else as I am plant-based. My friend loved the Crème Brûlée, and the chef made up some pasta Alioli for my husband who is also plant based.
My only concern is that we felt rushed. It was the 1st time getting back and going out with our friends since Covid subsided so we weren’t in a hurry, just wanted to enjoy a leisurely evening but our server seemed a little frustrated with us.
We will come back and I hope to feel more relaxed. Thank you.
The food was amazing and the staff was even better! Such a great experience!
It was our 25th wedding anniversary and we both love Italian cuisine and had never been to the Bottle Inn before. With all of the great reviews I was expecting much better. The special was sea bass, salmon, & shrimp linguini. However, it had NO shrimp and the fish were mushy and overcooked. The chicken & 3 cheese ravioli tasted as though they were empty. The pink vodka sauce for both was very tangy & reduced to a paste consistency. I found not 1 but 2 bay leaves in my dish. The artichoke appetizer was literally dripping with oil and the garlic bread was clearly made from old stale bread. On top of all this, everything was over priced. The one saving grace was that our server was great. Needless to say we were extremely disappointed and will NOT be going back.
Love Bottle Inn. Our food is consistently delicious and always fantastic service. Can’t wait to come back.
Abel is the best
We had shrimp scampi & sea bass special. Both were awesome.
Service was excellent.
Love Bottle Inn! Great service, food, atmosphere, everything! Just a little pricey but that's just HB & MB now a days...
Enjoyed whole experience - what a treat!
Amazing food and great service!
As always…Fabulous experience! Oscar was great re service and the good was delicious!
Food was fantastic! Gnocchi Pesto and Lobster w/ Angel Hair were great.
Absolutely delicious. A neighborhood gem! We almost always order the daily pasta special - they have never disappointed! We also tried the eggplant dish for the first time and it was so flavorful and filling. A perfect meatless dish! We always try a new bottle of wine and so far we have liked all of them: Barolo, Montepulciano, Pinot Noir, and Barbera. Delicioso!!!!
I went for my birthday and was not disappointed! The food was phenomenal, and the service; amazing ~ so attentive and he even brought me a piece of cake and sang Happy Birthday! The view of the beach and sunset we had, made the entire evening so memorable, we will be back often! Thank you to the entire staff that made it fantastic!!!
Great meals - we had Sea Bass, Chicken Picatta, Gnocchi w Pesto, Calamari and several desserts. Service was great, food was delicious! Thank you.
The acoustics where we sat not great. It got very loud very quickly even though there was not a huge crowd. But loved loved the food.
The sunset on the patio was amazing and can't be beaten. The food was delicious, the wine menu was extensive and the service great. Memorable night, thank you.
Overall great restaurant…service was excellent. Only disappointment was availability of osso bucco.
Great family dinner at Bottle Inn
Great food, great atmosphere. Very busy as the waitress didn't pay too much attention to our table as she was constantly on the go.
For an Italian restaurant that has been around forever, and we have enjoyed this place many times, hopefully, last night was an exception.
Brussel Sprouts - seriously undercooked, sent back and still undercooked…guess we have to eat them
Pesto Gnocchi - fantastic, but 8 gnocchi for $25 come on man
Stuffed chicken - awesome, burn garlic angel hair side not so great
Polenta lasagna - good
Now for the Risotto with Filet - undercooked, actually crunchy…looked more like a rice soup. Sent back and told them we have nothing but time, make it right. Came back almost exactly the same. Boxed up took home, made the filet, which was about 4oz, into tacos and the fiance finished the risotto the way it should have been made in the first or second place.
Overall, very disappointing. If you are an iconic Italian restaurant that we all know and used to love…you need to be able to make risotto correctly. If not on the first try…definitely the second.
Alura was amazing! Always checked on us, and food was very quick!
Always a stop while we are in California. The food and ambience did not disappoint outstanding as always! An added benefit 🥰 got to watch the sun setting on Hermosa beach while eating a delicious dinner. Italian food options are wonderful and we especially love the wine options
Our server was fantastic. Food was fantastic! Seafood with pasta, lemoncello cake, calamari, veal, all fantastic.
Absolutely amazing food. It has the feel and warmth of a traditional Italian restaurant but there was a great variety of meals you don't find at typical restaurants. They even lit our dinner on fire tableside!
We loved bottle inn! Our waiter Hilario was amazing!!! He was so nice and knowledgeable!! We can’t wait to go back - it was delicious! Love the atmosphere and everything about the place!
It was absolutely incredible. Celebrating two birthdays here and I will definitely be back! Love it so very much!
Had the most wonderful meal, with impeccable service. Tony was amazing! I couldn't have asked for better service or food. Thankyou.
Excellent Italian food with fine variety. Pastas are great, veal dishes are excellent, the Salmon, chicken, lobster, soups, calamari, salads have all been excellent. We have eaten here many times. Waitresses Bree and Allura were both excellent. They know the wine list and will go out of their way for special requests. Kind of like eating at a friend's place.
