Thanksgiving buffet was a huge disappointment. All of the food was very bland and poor quality, the only flavor came from over-salting. The turkey was horribly dry and tasteless. The best thing on the menu was the venison roast; the server (who was very attentive and kind) recommended it and, indeed, it was the only thing worth eating. The buffet setup was also not very sanitary -- there were serving utensil handles lying directly in the food on several dishes. Even the dessert bar was terrible! Who screws up a dessert bar? The pastries were like something out of a grocery store bakery and everything tasted day-old (stale, dry). This was on the pricier end of downtown-area Thanksgiving dinner options and I would not recommend it.

This is fine for drinks but was underwhelmed with the food. Several dishes were out of stock with excuses they were working a new menu. Given most of the menu dishes seemed more for the spring (cold asparagus soup, spring onions and peas), November menu updates are late. I’d recommend for drinks only.

We waited at least 15 minutes before being approached by wait staff. There was some confusion regarding who would be our waiter/waitress. Once that was resolved, the service was much better. We received a sincere apology (good experience). The food was very good. Absent the rough start it was an overall good dining experience.

My girlfriend and I brought family (visiting from out of town) in for brunch. We’ve eaten brunch here many times, typically enjoying the bottomless bar and great views of Michigan Ave. This time around our experience was pretty awful. Our food took FOREVER to come out and not once did our server update us on what was going on. The menu updates somewhat simplified the food and should not have led to such a long wait time. We never received our aide of bacon either which is a very simple thing to get out. Plus the bacon was no longer available at the bloody bar, what’s up with that?! Our server was nice enough to pour us extra champagne and offered to still bring the bacon out for waiting but that didn’t improve the overall experience. I’m sorry to say it but I don’t think we’ll be back or recommending this place.

Hostess has no hosting abilities at all, there was no rush to get us seated when the place was practically empty. We were finally seated 20 min after our reservation. The mimosa and bloody bar were fantastic would highly recommend! The food was okay, pretty hyped up menu for an okay tasting meal.

Baptiste and Bottle has a great location especially on the eve of the Festival of Lights. The layout has a fun city vibe and the potential for sophistication. Two things though that made it tough for us: the chairs and the saltiness of the food. The chair’s material caused me to slip and slide out of it; I spent the night trying to hook the heels of my boots into the chair’s legs and/or the table’s legs to stay atop of the seat. The food we ordered was heavily salted. I spent so much time drinking water with our meal that I struggled to drink my specialty drink.

We wanted to try something different when we went and we did. I don’t know that we will return.

Food tastes great, serve is disappointing. The server literarly ignored us everytime we needed him - taking our orders, serving food, and getting the check. We didn't feel welcome here. Probably not gonna come back even we really enjoyed the food here. Many other restaurants with delicious brunch also have warm and friendly attitudes.

We dined at baptise and bottle for brunch on Saturday. The bloody mary bar and mimosa bar were amazing. We sat here for hours enjoying the Chicago views and casually drinking cocktails. It is a much higher class endless mimosa brunch than some others I've been too. It has a great mature crowd for a fun brunch before shopping.

The food was outstanding. We had the broccoli (with feta cheese and a sauce that had a kick and was super flavorful), burrata and egg plant, bison and pork. Each thing was truly incredible and we ate every morsel. I don’t usually pick restaurants in hotels, but the food here was excellent. Nice ambiance and beautiful view. Definitely worth it.

At 11:45, the restaurant was mostly empty. The hostess greeted us with a glare. I offered up that we had a reservation and gave our last name. The hostess, still having not spoken a word, looked annoyed that I’d thought to plan ahead for a weekend meal. She spent a solid minute pushing buttons on her iPad. With an eye roll she finally said, “This way.”
The view at our window table was lovely. We know because we spent 15 minutes looking at it before our server even approached us. He did apologize for the wait and answered my questions about the menu. We then waited another 10 min for a glass of champagne and an Irish coffee (pretty simple requests) which never arrived. We did, however, watch our server bring new drinks to the other tables he was serving.
At that point we got up and left. No one seemed to care all that much.
I’d highly recommend Griddle 24. It was a 15 min walk from B&B and we were greeted with enthusiastic smiles, seated right away, served drinks within seconds, and our food within minutes.
Don’t waste your time at Baptiste & Bottle. Seems they’d prefer an empty restaurant anyway.

Food was great. But Water was never refilled. Servers and waiter energy level seems low or was that too early on that day. Only the manager came by and say hi nicely. Another table also seems to be not happy on that morning as well and relocate their table on their own. Parking information is not updated on opentable reservation. So complementary parking are not available on the weekends actually with small prints at the actual sign in front of the hotel only. So paid extra for parking for our cars.

I went to Baptiste and Bottle on a Saturday night with a close friend. We were going to go for dinner, but ended up not being too hungry when we were there. I ordered a cocktail and a glass of Pinot Blanc and my friend had two beers. While we were sipping our drinks, I noticed that a table nearby had ordered the bone marrow, so I also order this. It was delicious! I cannot even describe it--rich flavor and one of the best orders of bone marrow I have ever had (it is one of my favorite things and I order it PRETTY MUCH anywhere I go that has it)!
The server was great--although the shift was short handed, he did well with getting us what we needed. He was kind, helpful and had a great sense of humor. T
The view was breath-taking as we were there as the sunset and were able to enjoy the city lights.
(It was Game 3 in the World Series, so they even brought a TV out for those dining so we could watch the game!)
I would definitely go back--I hear that their brunch and Bloody Mary bar is amazing!

I have been here once before for Sunday brunch - bottomless mimosas was a huge sell for me - and it was fabulous. Everything from the food to the cocktail spread and the view were all amazing. This time I was a little less enthusiastic however. Our server was great - if it were not for him I most likely would’ve given the overall experience a 3-3.5 as the food was less than what I expected for both the price and for having been there before. I was super disappointed that their signature hot cocoa specialty drink was not being offered. That happened to be the only reason I convinced my boyfriend to come, but the bone marrow appetizer was delicious. The scallops were cooked well but I found them and the Mac and cheese to have been lukewarm and somewhat bland. It wasn’t terrible it was just disappointing after having enjoyed my first experience so much. That said I would still give it another chance and still recommend but maybe at an earlier time (we were there at 7:45) or maybe for brunch/weekends. The view is great and the ambience is lovely. So overall it wasn’t too shabby!

Too many other better options to go back. Small menu but knew that before we went. Drinks were fine but the food was served bland and served cold. When pointed it out to the server he fought it saying it couldnt be and did not want to take it back. Awkward and not acceptable. For the price, you can do much better at other places in the area.

The service here was beyond awful. It took forever for someone to come to the table. Then we ordered drinks which did not come until after our food. They advertise a memosa and Bloody Mary bar for brunch but they don’t say that it doesn’t start until noon. It’s not unusual for someone other than your server to bring out your food, but you would expect that person to know what the food was they were serving. They brought food to us and called it eggs over easy. None of us ordered that, so they took it away. Then when our server returned to ask why we sent the food back. We explained that we were told it was eggs over easy which we didn’t order. Turned out it was the huevos rancheros, which we did order. There was no apology for the mixup. About half way through breakfast is when the drinks finally showed up. We did get one free drink because they brought one of us a Bloody Mary instead of a memosa. For the prices they are charging I expect better service.
