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.

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.

Excellent food. Outside dining just off the Hermosa Beach Strand, so the beach pedestrian traffic is present, allowing good people watching, for some could be a distraction. Our waitress was excellent, going out of her way to provide the correct wine and other beverages, serving the meals without error and being very patient and pleasant to work with. Prices are not jacked up a lot due to the location.

Wonderful evening celebrating our anniversary. Sandra was so lovely & attentive. Entire staff said hello to us. Food was delicious. I enjoyed the special Chilean Sea Bass, and it was a dream. And the tiramisu at the end topped off an amazing night. This is a staple for our family, always look forward to dining at Bottle Inn!

This was a long over due date night for the wife and I. My wife has been coming here almost 40 years and it rarely is under five stars. Last night was extra exceptional however. For starters “Bree” (our server) was just incredible. The ONE thing my wife wanted from the menu they were out of and we were really bummed as we drove from Lakewood to eat there. Bree worked with us and the chef to cobble together something AMAZING and my wife was more than happy. My risotto with filet was very good (first time having risotto so nothing to compare to) and the wine was fantastic. We can’t say enough about Bree! We chatted as much as she could because the place was filling up pretty quickly but would have loved to chat more. She made the evening all the better. Great food and great service. The flourless chocolate cake was to DIE FOR!

This is the first time we have skipped the take out and actually went out to eat in Hermosa Beach in over a year snd a half, so it had to be at our favorite, neighborhood restaurant, the Bottle Inn! And it was absolutely wonderful, as wonderful as it always was, perhaps even better with their expanding outdoor dining! We will be back again, and again, and again!
