Hilarious. Took 2 of my girlfriends for some snacks and cocktails for a birthday. Didn’t realize just how bougie and PRETENTIOUS it would be! We arrived 4 minutes early (our reservation was for 5:30pm and we arrived at 5:26pm) . The hostess refused to seat us until exactly 5:30pm so we said we would take a table in the lounge until then. We ended up staying at the lounge table because it had more vibe than the rest of the EMPTY restaurant. Appetizers were amazeballs but won’t be going back anytime soon. Better value and atmosphere at pretty much ANYWHERE else in the entire city.

I have a rule to NOT eat in hotel restaurants if I can avoid it. Sure glad I broke that rule. Service, food and view were fabulous. I highly recommend this place. (And I wasn’t even staying at the Conrad Hotel.)

Terrific service and really great food. James, the chef, not only produced excellent dishes but made our dining experience real by visiting our table to share his inspiration for some of the dishes and his humor! We will be back and recommending Baptiste & Bottle to friends and family.

Came here with a Gilt City voucher. I would never have known about it if they didn't see it on Gilt City. It's on the 20th floor so the view is quite nice. I went on a Tuesday evening and it was pretty quiet. We each had 2 glasses of wine, shared the brussels sprouts; my friend had the scallops and I the halibut. The halibut was DE-LICIOUS. The brussels sprouts were a bit on the salty sweet side, but I enjoyed them.

For dessert we shared the cherry mash. Very innovative dessert and tasty (try to find the hidden ice cream).

I would definitely come back here. It's romantic and classy. I felt very comfortable here.

Waiter Tom was more than capable the evening we visited. I can’t say enough about the food. Fresh, on point and perfectly presented. Go for the spaetzle then stay for the halibut and don’t forget the dessert offerings.

Overall a solid experience we will definitely be back soon.

Mixed review of our evening. Food was excellent. But at $100 per person (including tip) there are many better options.
Service was weird. Took 20 minutes and two servers to get a drink after we sat down. The place was empty at 7:30 on Saturday night but our waiter was always off and running. At one point he brought another server over to take over for him as he was moving to another "Private Party". But he appeared again and was with us for the rest of the evening, sort of.
No Mention of Bourbons which is supposed to be what the place is all about.
No mention of Charlie Trotter Days which is being advertised on the website.
Great views of the city.
Strange night all around.

While everyone enjoyed the food and drink, the service had quite a few hiccups. We were served a canned beer tableside that was poured into a glass, which wound up being mostly foam and then spilling out onto the table. We actually had to ask the server 5 minutes late to get a replacement, as he seemed to think that was not worth correcting. Our meals were fine, but we were served one wrong entree. And then it took two requests to get the bill at the end. All in all, it's a nice spot with a fun ambiance and the bottomless drinks was as-advertised. But I might try elsewhere before heading back.

Not a large menu of choices, but the preparation was excellent. I had the scallops, and my friend had the lamb. Both were delicious. We shared the spaetzel, which was not your traditional noodle dish, but very flavorful with an interesting texture. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about both food and wine and very helpful in making our selections.

Absolutely love this place! I've been following them on Instagram for a while and finally decided to make a reservation. The service was excellent and we ordered every recommendation the waiter gave us. Bison, lamb, mac & cheese, mushroom app, and oxtail bone marrow. I enjoyed the bison and mac and cheese the most while my date enjoyed the bone marrow app! Great cocktails, great service, food was hot and fresh, the mood was relaxed/ not too busy or loud. I will 100% be back soon!

While the food and dining experience were great, I must say that in July the menu was extremely winter-y. Braised short ribs and mushrooms were more suited to a cozy February dinner. If you are looking for a seasonal menu this is not your place, at least in the summer. The view and service were very good with a nice wine list. The food quality was good too. I might try again in the winter.

Swanky date night! Very attentive and friendly waiter. We had a great table and view of the sunset peaking through the downtown skyscrapers. We indulged in (several) old fashioneds. Bone marrow appetizer was delicious. Had the scallops and halibut entrees, fish cooked perfectly and good portions. We also split the jalapeño mac and cheese. Our plates were cleaned and we left quite satisfied. After dinner we went upstairs to the roof bar/restaurant for a cocktail.

My food was very good. I had scallops. My friend's steak first came out overcooked. I had them send it back. Our server was not the best which made our experience less than average. We asked her to include tip on the bill and she did. But then she denied putting the tip on there. I feel like she was trying to get us to tip her again.

The food wasn’t bad at all. Everything was a little different and had its own fun twist.

The drinks were good. We all had a different bourbon cocktail and each was very tasty.

Only issue we had was with the parking. Signage outside and the open table app show that parking is validated when you dine. This wasn’t the case at all. Something needs to be updated there.

This is the third time I have been to Baptiste & Bottle (two prior times for work events). Never has the service been this poor. It was a Fathers Day brunch, restaurant was not very crowded, so no obvious reason for the lack of service. Unfortunately, I will not return and will also not recommend to others.

We had a 4 person reservation for brunch on a Saturday at 11 am. When we first got there the hostess told us that they were closed. The place was completely empty but we were confused since we had a reservation. The staff was just confused. Apparently they close during the week at 11 but they were open since it was the weekend. We went for the bottomless mimosas deal. Unfortunately when our first round was brought out the waitress spilled champagne all over my mom and her new Louis Vuitton purse!! The manager said they would take care of the damage but they have not replied to our calls and emails!! Horrible service!!! Not worth the 600 that we need to drop on the strap replacements for the damaged LV purse.

Really enjoyed our evening!
The ambiance was great, the place is very chic and pretty, gorgeous views.
The food was delicious, loved everything we had. As it was our first time dining there, they brought two items “on the house” for us to try, which was definitely what we would call a “touch of class”...
We did ask to give our compliments to the chef as we found the food to be really good!
Service was excellent, starting with the host and everybody that took care of us. A special mention and thanks to Tom, who made the evening even more enchanting.
We would highly recommend the place and we are looking forward to returning very soon.
