Bottle Inn Hermosa is one of my favorite restaurants. The food is excellent and the ambience very romantic. The wine list is varied and extensive!

The service is impeccable, especially if you get Oscar to wait on your table. He is the best!!!

I highly recommend the Bottle Inn for any occasion!

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.

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

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.

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.

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!!!!

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.
