Baptiste & Bottle Ratings and Reviews
We made a reservation at 1:30pm because it was the only time left. When we got there it was completely dead. We were then rushed to order because apparently the kitchen closes from 2-5pm for dinner. I was never told this when making the reservation. We couldn’t even get dessert. Service was poor. Food was meh at best. Do not recommend.
Just got home from having dinner here and I can’t get over it! It was AMAZING! They really made our night a special one! We were greater with bubbles since this was a very special occasion for me and the hubby.
The food is a must try, I’m very familiar with the whole American Fare concept and I love it! I already know this will be one of my regulars spots!
The service was also outstanding, I really enjoy when servers are attentive without being intrusive and that’s what we got.
The Sous chef came to the table to run a couple extra dishes and let me tell you, they were amazing, we really can’t wait to go back for brunch.
If you are here reading this review because you are wondering if you should give it a try then let me tell you: yes! Go! You definitely have to give it a try!
I had brunch with some girlfriends, we all ordered an entree and either juice or coffee. I ordered the huevos rancheros, it was ok but small and not served with anything on the side. I also had coffee. I was still hungry! The total split evenly was $30 each before tip. And 4 of us had to share a stand sized French pressed cofeee and had to wait until the end of the meal to get more coffee because our waiter was too busy.
Overall, a pleasant dinner, but pricey. Attractive, sleek, contemporary decor. Excellent server knowledge and service. The "dealers choice" cocktail (supposedly a custom creation by the bartender) was the smallest $15 drink ever (served in what seemed would normally be a cordial glass) and nothing extraordinary for a place that prides itself on the "bottle" part. The menu is surprisingly limited--check it out before you go. Food was delicious. Side dish portion was generous, although not oversized for $8. Entree portion was acceptable, but, again, a bit short on price/value. We would go back, but not in a hurry. Better destination for the extensive spirits selection. Go for a drink and maybe some bar food.
Lovely setting within the Conrad hotel, with an open seating arrangement that was welcoming and cozy. Surprisingly few guests, not sure how long they will be open for lunch with the size of the crowd, which suggests that they draw mainly from the hotel and don't yet have much local draw. The staff was friendly and attentive to our needs. The food was solid and interesting, although we will pass on the brisket sandwich next time, which was a relatively uninspired delivery from a great starting point. The bar scene was a bit off, they were relatively unfamiliar with their own wine list, and the barkeep was distracted. Overall was fine, but amidst so many great spots they may struggle to rise to the top of the list.
Hang with me on this... Our server was amazing- really friendly. The cocktails were also amazing. The Food: We ordered an appetizer, never got it. We were sent a different "appetizer on Chef". Thanks, but that's not what we ordered? The pace of our meal was horrible. Minutes later we got our entrees. Unfortunately, most of mine was cold to the touch. We ordered one side, got two ("mac n cheese on Chef"). Thanks, but we don't eat carbs? I'm sure you can see why we were just overall puzzled with our experience. Food wasn't great, they sent out extra food but missed things we actually ordered.
Another wonderful evening here with great food, ambiance and cocktails. We chose this after enjoying the view for Magnificent Mile lighting last year - just the two of us - during opening week.. THis time we were celebrating the evening with a larger family group. The evening was perfect - all because Amanda stepped up and made sure we were set up in a great window spot. All enjoyed their different entrees and the spectacular location. We live in the neighborhood so appreciate this wonderful spot.
Food was good, fun mixology (and great spirits choices), but server was unwilling or unable to attend to 2 of my guests who requested Vegan options. We ended up having to "work at it" with the server for quite awhile, explaining what Vegan is, etc. That was quite offputting.
The Baptiste and Bottle was truly outstanding. I think it was the best restaurant I've eaten at in years - it truly delivered a new calibre. There were 6 of us and every plate was scraped clean. Yup scraped! From shared appetizers to main courses and fantastic side dishes.
Everything from the plates to the decor were thought about deeply and offered delightful surprise. The food combinations, arrangements and seasonings were perfect and delicious. If I had a wish for improvement, it would be that my children could have tried those brussels sprouts and denied how fabulous green veggies are to eat!
Great ambiance, not overcrowded. Was very easy to talk to my significant other. Only gave 1 star for the food because we only ate the candied bacon which was a bit cold and served with walnuts. I didn’t care too much for that dish, but I didn’t try any other food. Drinks were good, moderately priced. I will be back again to try dinner!
Went here to celebrate my girlfriend’s birthday who is gluten-free. The view first of all is fabulous! The food was outstanding and the service was impeccable. The chef went out of his way to make my girlfriend a special dessert to celebrate her birthday. It was beautifully created like a piece of Art! So nice that this restaurant accommodated us with her special dietary needs! Besides the food being fabulous the drinks were incredible !
I booked this place for a reunion with two friends I don't see often, and it was perfect! Our waiter Yunis was incredibly attentive. The food was great, and the bottomless mimosas were truly that! The view was gorgeous (including the one of Alfre Woodard eating across the restaurant!) Highly recommend!
This was a new place for us. The food was decent, the drinks were really good. The corn soup was my least favorite, it had more cream than anything. It didn't taste like corn soup and the fritter was pretty meh. It was swimming in the hot cream soup. Overall it was ok. Most of the plates lacked any color, nothing green. Dishes needed some balance of flavor, splash of acid here and there.
Excellent food and friendly, professional service. Disappointed to find that the duck confit was not an option for an appetizer when we sat down, after having seen it on the menu at Open Table and asking specifically about it when the hostess called to confirm the reservation. Once we got past that, we were served excellent food and drinks in a very convivial manner, with a great view of Chicago at night from the 20th floor of The Conrad. Recommended!
Baptiste & Bottle is our go to spot for a consistently great meal. We take friends for special occasions & we dine there just for the amazing food. The chef is innovative and genius! The wait staff is friendly & informative-especially Darmah & Tom. The craft cocktails are great. The atmosphere is cool & the views are nice from the 20th floor vista.
We visited for brunch, looking to try a new place. The space itself, as well as the furniture, are very nice. We were seated quickly, and a few of the group ordered the mimosa/Bloody Mary bar. That was the first issue: three juices were available on the mimosa side, and none of them were identified. Many add-in ingredients were not replenished very quickly, and none of them were identified (what were the chunks of meat?). While the quality of the ingredients throughout the meal were good, many were unexpected. For instance, in the hashbrown skillet, there were jalapeños. My friend liked it, but he did not expect it to be as spicy as it was. The avocado toast had none of the listed asparagus or aquachile (kind of a ceviche), but it did have 4-5 huge chunks of raw tomatoes (not on the menu). There was almost no seasoning, so the dish was very bland. The French toast was a similar letdown, but the pancakes were excellent. Most of the menu is priced reasonably for the area and content, but the sides are extraordinarily overpriced. Period. No one ordered the mac & cheese, but how is it $13 as a side?! There are not enough truffles in the world to explain that, if there are any even used in it. The service was decent, though one entree was forgotten. Portion sizes were moderate to small, and we felt that the food was not a good value, compared to multiple other brunch locations. None of the group would plan to go back again.
What can I say? We had the most incredible meal at Baptiste & Bottle on Friday night. Sebastian our server was kind, attentive, and very knowledgeable about the menu. The restaurant had a great vibe and the views of Michigan Avenue were outstanding. The Chef came out and spoke to us about the ingredients in the dishes we ordered- which we loved! Everything was delicious, but the 2 items that stood out to us the most were the tomato cucumber salad and the chocolate sundae. We were still talking about that sundae days later.
Thanks B&B for a wonderful experience!
