    Our second visit and we were again amazed at how good the food was in terms of quality/taste, presentation and value. We will be back many more times! So glad we stumbled upon this KingsFarm gem!

    We have been to Botanero 4-5 times, but this time was a #fail. Our waiter (who was also a bartender, so clearly overworked) made several big mistakes in our order. And more than a few times, we had to ask another waiter or the hostess to ask our waiter to come back to our table so we could correct a mistake or order more food. And then it took forever for him to come over with the check. It was a first visit to Botanero for two of our guests and I was genuinely embarrassed that I had recommended the restaurant.

    Our first time here. Lots of great menu choices. We chose four things for two of us. It was plenty. Everything was served hot where needed and cold where needed. Everything was great! We loved the truffle Mac ‘n cheese! Also enjoyed the red snapper, beet salad and a flatbread with artichokes and squash.

    First time, random decision for dining here and was pleasantly surprised. Food variety was great and also very tasty and the wine selection was not too shabby. Busy Saturday night and only slightly understaffed but by no means were we ignored nor was the service poor. Glad to have decided to give it a shot. We’ll definitely be back here again.

    Food was amazing, tried several options from the brunch menu and regular menu. We really liked the small plates style but portions were still great. Everything was amazing from food to drinks to service and ambiance. My fiancé and I are big foodies and we wanted to find a place that was more casual yet still was a fine dining five star experience. Botanero is a gem and a new fav spot for us! 12/10 recommend.

    Group dinner on Valentine’s Day exceeded all expectations! Surprised to know there is a rear area more spacious than the front. Food and service were great! The braised beef and flaming shrimps are not to be missed. Tony was great. He knew the menu and had solid recommendations. He was also very patient and we never felt rushed. Everyone added Botanero to their list of places to eat in the Rockville area. Will definitely come back.

    Botanero was so noisy in a small room that we ordered food to take out. Service was good as was food, but will not go there again to eat inside on a Saturday night. Maybe a week night would not be as noisy.

    Probably the worst omelet I’ve had. Carmelized onions were not carmelized. Not enough cheese, and what was there was watery. No taste. My son had the Crab Eggs Benedict. He said it tasted bitter. The biscuits, while tiny, were fine, as were the beignets. Won’t be back for brunch. It was my second subpar brunch meal.

    Great friendly service. Made a reservation on a busy Friday night, was sat on time. Food was outstanding - the fig bites were the best bite I’ve ever had, wings and brussel sprouts were delicious. The flaming shrimp was a great surprise to the table but almost too spicy to eat! Will def come back again!

    The food was very good, but the feel of the restaurant was more like a diner than a fine establishment restaurant. For the price of the food, etc, I would expect it to be a bit more upscale in terms of decor. All in all good, but not sure I would go back.

    Friday night dinner at 6, we were in the back room. It was fairly quiet when we arrived but noisy when we left due to several parties with very loud people. Lighting was dimmer than I prefer. The food was all excellent, highly recommend the scallops with risotto, Kefta Briouat- so tasty!, Brussel Sprouts, and mushroom flatbread, which is loaded with the toppings. The Tres Leches cake was also very good.

    I believe Joshua took great care of my friend and me today! He was genuinely such great energy, attentive & understanding when I clumsily broke the glass… I believe it was my first time doing brunch at Botanero & I just love the various options they have (especially versus other places with a bottomless drinks option!). I’ve been to Botanero many a times and will continue to come here! 🤍
