The food was great, like always. The friendly service was also there. It’s like eating at a family member’s house (although you need to pay then). I can’t say anything but wonderful things.

The food is very good and the service not bad.

However, we had a reservation and they tried seating us at a table for two at the entry. It was a very cramped space as there wasn’t enough space to pull out the chair far enough to sit down. Instead, they sat us upstairs in a very stark room with no ambience whatsoever. Very disappointing!

All three of us had seafood dishes, all of which were excellent. Ambiance was good -- everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. Our table was very quiet until a raucous crowd was seated near us -- not the restaurant's fault. Have eaten here before and will definitely go back.

our favorite Redondo Beach eatery.........we were a bit disappointed this time as we came to enjoy the Halibut special and it was all sold out by 7:45.............second choice was yummy, but nonetheless was looking forward to the Halibut with our out of town guests.......see you next time!

Excellent food and service on this visit. On a past visit the music was a little to loud and distracting for this small restaurant space. The waiter was very willing to customize the sauces and said everything is prepared to order. Will definitely return. May try a wine tasting Thursday with friends. Their wine is priced fairly!

Apparently the owners are trying to sell the place. They don’t have many of the wines on their menu. And they took my favorite - cannelloni with filet mignon- off the menu.

Waiter was as accommodating as can be, but bit disappointed in experience with the restaurant itself.

Will stick with the location in Hermosa, which I understand was taken over by workers (after owners were going to sell it)

We booked our ann. dinner on a Tuesday night not realizing they had live entertainment. We were looking for quite dinner and didn't appreciate the noise. We mentioned we needed quiet and they opened the upstairs to us and we had an extremely enjoyable dinner. We've coming to a Bottle Inn for the last 44 years and it is still one of the best deals in town for fine Italian dining.

I was at your restaurant last week and the experience was much better. On Saturday night, the sever said that I could not order a small dinner salad even though I had ordered one last week. The salmon carpaccio was not as good as usual. The chicken picatta was excellent. I love this restaurant - I hope the service will be more consistent in the future.

We had dinner on a Wednesday, and it was a mixed bag. Two of us ordered the chicken piccata- NEVER have I had such a small portion of food! It was good, but so very small. I think there were no more than 2 ounces of thin chicken and four small pieces of potatoes. The portion size was very disappointing. The restaurant was VERY loud because of the entertainment. Let me start by saying Hugo was GREAT, but for such a small room, he was far too loud. We could hardly hold a conversation because of the music.
Overall, our experience was disappointing, but I cannot say for sure that I would not return. But, please, don't be so skimpy with your portions.

I am gluten, dairy, soy, cashew, and peanut free. Finding a restaurant I can eat at is a mission impossible. If I find one which meets my food requirements, expecting the food to taste good is an unrealistic expectation. Not so here. I have a variety of choices to choose from on the menu. And they are all FANTASTIC! On par with the delicious food is the five star Michelin Service. If you are looking for a great dinning experience in the Redondo Beach Riviera you must go here.
