It was a Friday and the restaurant was filled so I highly recommend making a reservation. We ordered the Brussel sprouts, scallops, short rib, and lamb skewers. All were excellently prepared. The sauces were so good too. The menu has so many options and most looked really good. It was hard to decide. The service was very good. The waitress took great care of us. I haven’t been since the pandemic. They’ve added more outdoor seating. I’m so glad we went. The only thing I’ll do differently the next time is to only order 1-2 things at a time because the food came out so fast.

There were three of us for Mother's Day and we each ordered three plates to share. Our favorites were the Duck Confit and the Pork Belly oh, and the salmon and Truffle Mac and Cheese. But not a bad one in the bunch. We were actually discussing what we order when we go back. Because we will go back. The service was smooth and the food came out quicker than anticipated. This place is a real hidden gem!

This time it was for a Mother's Day buffet and it didn't disappoint. Food selection was great (although could have used another veggie or salad option, but no big deal). Service was attentive without being disruptive. Always a pleasure to dine here.

Waitress never came back to check on us or see if we wanted to order more tapas. Yet rushed in when she saw someone else giving us our check. Very odd atmosphere. Food was mediocre.

My husband and I ordered brunch; I had the prosciutto eggs Benedict and he had a bacon and egg bagel. The potatoes on both dishes were cold and we agreed later, pretty tasteless. At first we weren't even sure they were actual potatoes and not sweet potatoes. My eggs were okay, but the prosciutto had way too much fat on it (and I know it always has some, but more should have been removed from what's used for this dish.) My husband asked that his bacon be cooked "crispy" and it was not. I ordered coffee and when it arrived, requested cream. The server brought milk and said there was never cream at the restaurant. I can't drink coffee with milk, so sent it back. And finally, everything we requested came only after a second request or didn't come at all. We didn't complain during the meal because we were with friends who really like Botanero and we didn't want to make them uncomfortable.
