    For a Thursday night Botanero had a festive crowd. Our waiter was an attentive and conscientious fellow who gave us useful information, knew the menu from top to bottom and brought our orders quickly to the table. We had an excellent table for two against the wall and this afforded us some separation from a few folks who were obviously enjoying themselves. I had their cheesy caesar salad and creamy mussels and my date (my wife) had superb broiled sprouts and duck confit. We share food so I can rate her dishes as well. Tres leches cake finished the meal. My wife enjoyed her glass of a white blended wine and finished her meal with decaf. My craft beer, a Pilsner, was quite nippy and refreshing and the cappuccino was good. What matters most was the overall experience which was at a very high level. We will put Botanero on our list of good spots.

    Loved this experience! Little plates, all well executed. The beet salad was delicious- our favorite plate on the table. The calamari was done to perfection, light and fresh. Bacon wrapped dates stuffed with goat cheese drizzled in orange marmalade- yumm! The only “meh” was we ordered a pitcher of their seasonal sangria, which was mango peach, we are convinced there was no alcohol in there. It was a pitcher of fruit juice. Next time we will order regular sangria 😌 and leave the adventure for something else.

    It was very good however OpenTable has incorrect info. You have the Weekend Brunch until 4:00. We arrived @ 3 looking forward to brunch only to find out it now ends at 3:00. Disappointed.

    The food was spectacular! We ordered ceviche, grilled lamb chops, kale salad and beef short rib! The bourdeux was also delicious and paired well with the tapas. We overall loved it and will be back! The place is a little squeezed.

    I usually like everything I ordered but where was the crab in the crab cake? One of the most expensive items on the menu and there was more cake than crab.

    Attended a reception here earlier this year and the food was so good, I took two friends on Saturday. The food was as delicious as I remembered. We had the beet salad, brussels sprouts, tempura shrimp, short rib flatbread and Thai spring rolls. Everything was great and we will definitely go again.

    Food, Staff, drinks, ambience was amazing. The manager was very accommodating with our large party that went from 16 to 21 by ensuring adequate seating and comfort. He was very nice. Our Server was great as well. Very attentive, no mixups or shortages of drinks. This may have been the best large party service I’ve ever had. I think every item was ordered off that brunch menu and everyone throughly enjoyed it. We will definitely be back. Thank you

    Botanero is an outstanding restaurant! We so enjoyed our dinner this evening. Excellent attentive service, nice surroundings- except it’s on the high end of loud. My wife and I shared a beet salad (yum!!) and 3 small plates, calamari, ceviche, and beef short ribs. Each one delicious with tasty sauces and perfectly prepared. Botanero is a gem. Shhh.. We won’t be able to get in.

    Went in on a friend's recommendation and with a gift card we received for Mother's Day. Didn't know what to expect. Greeted very pleasantly and promptly, seated immediately, offered to order from either brunch or regular menu , many excellent options on both. Food came fairly quickly, what perfect temperature, plated attractively and OMG tasted amazing. Some of the best food we have had out in a long long time. Enjoyed it so much we order dinner to go AND discussed planning a party with them for next winter. highly recommended

    We had a great time. The food and wine were delicious. We ordered 5 - 6 tapas and it was more than enough for my husband, 3 year old, and I. Warm and welcoming ambiance with mostly natural light around 5-6 pm in June. We had reservations for outside but they were kind enough to accommodate us inside when it was little too cool and windy for us outside (we had our 4 month old with us also) They had also had a kids menu with crayons which was a big bonus!

    I love Botanero. Lisa was our server and she was wonderful. There were a variety of good options to try and everything I had was so good. We were a table of 6 so we all got to taste a good amount of dishes from the menu and nothing disappointed. The wings, empanadas, Flatbreads, Scallops, and o so much yummiest.
