*Please visit BotanicaRestaurant.com to make a reservation!* Vegetables are the star of the show at Botanica, an innovative new restaurant from editors-turned-chefs Emily Fiffer and Heather Sperling. The market-driven menu features beautiful produce from local farms, wild Pacific seafood, responsibly sourced meat, and spices from across the globe. Dishes are exciting but unfussy, composed with healthfulness in mind. Abundant Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, Central and Southeast Asian influences inform the food, but Botanica is a wholly modern American restaurant.

Rounding out the menu is a beverage program of natural wines, craft beer, produce-centric cocktails, fresh juices and spritzers, and Manufactory coffee and Leaves & Flowers teas. In addition to the restaurant, the space houses a market, stocked with the products and local produce used in the kitchen, the wine and beer from the restaurant list, prepared foods and house-made snacks.

The dates were dry and tasted like they were old. The $26 vegetarian meal I got had pickled mushrooms in it and it was not good. I would not come back nor would I receommend it to anyone.

Plus the ambiance is great, something I'm generally very sensitive to in restaurants. They have both indoor and outdoor seating (yay!) Both areas are super cute, comfortable, have great lighting, and allow you to actually hear your dinner conversation. Outdoor seating is in a back patio which feels very distant from street, cars, and city activity. This has quickly become my favorite go-to for special occasions or really any kind of outing!

It was so amazing and lovely when it opening. Last time I ate here I was treated so poorly they ended up comping ALL of our alcohol. The experience left a bad taste in my mouth but excused it as a random negative experience. Went back for dinner on Wednesday and was completely shocked by the portion sizes. Things had literally shrunken by over 50% with the same price tag. The tartine used to be a hearty serving that could be shared; Wednesday night the toast that arrived at our table was about 3” square —- completely laughable. Fattoush-y salad was tiny and the carrots, though the same dish, were prepared in a completely different fashion than they had been 2 weeks previous. I’m so sad I find this place to be beyond disappointing :( check out Kismet, Mh Zh, or Momed for far superior experience. Shame on you, Botanica.

Loved the vibe. But not all the food was good. We ordered the fruit bowl described as the “prettiest fruit”. Dry berries and bland options. Felt like I was getting a hand full of fruit from the fridge. The soft scramble was basically runny eggs. =/ I thought they would make legit a soft scramble dish. The gee cooked banana ginger bread slice things were yummy and so was the basil lemonade. The latte’s espresso was so bold it just tasted like double the amount of espresso for a balanced drink. Defiantly don’t recommend this unless you like that cray crack coffee I loved as a teen. I prefer a great pulled shot on ice and a splash of milk. This wasn’t it. As bad as the options we picked. There were defiantly some good notes there to make us possibly return to give it another shot. The cod sounded good. Will skip the coffee and fruit bowl next time.

The vibe is perfect whether you’re inside or on the charming patio. The restaurant is clearly a labor of love and you can feel the owners’ commitment to celebrating the joys of sharing great food and drinks in a beautiful ambience. The organic wine list is outstanding and the cocktails are terrific—a must-try is the beet cocktail (made with your choice of tequila or mezcal). Gluten free baked goods are available and the chocolate olive oil mousse tarte is to-die- for. Check out their website, which includes recipes for a lot of their signature dishes. Bottom line: expect a creative, flavorful feast for the palate at Botanica in a setting you’ll want to linger in -and return to often.

The food was forgettable and so overpriced for the portions! We got the chicken, lamb and the sweet potatoes - all of them were ok but nothing to write home about. The chicken and lamb dishes looked big but then you realize it’s mostly salad.... the drinks were ok, but again, nothing special. Such a bummer.

The gardens are exquisite at all times, but I especially appreciate the colors and smells and sounds at sunset. Therefore it is very lovely to dine in this beautiful setting. The chef created delicious, healthy and creative dishes—we returned the following week as EVEYTHING had been so perfect!

We never were told the kitchen was closing soon until we asked for an extra piece of bread and were told we couldn’t have it bc the kitchen was closed. This would have been fine but we had never informed that this would be happening. Our waiter was condescending and made a few rude remarks to my friend. We also had a reservation at 1:45 and also weren’t seated until 2:15. Other than these few missteps the food was amazing and everyone else was nice and accommodating.

Super flavorful, good portions for sharing, and very fresh! We sat the bar and enjoyed the bartenders recommendations . The natural wines were really fun and interesting for trying and enjoying! Great ambiance for a date or friends meetup. Without a doubt, really worth the trip from Long Beach! thank you Botanica!

The restaurant has some cool gadget that lets them easily split the bills so dining in a group was a piece of cake when it came time to pay!! Parking can be tough but I found a spot on one of the streets behind the restaurant. Overall good experience and I would go back! I feel healthy after eating here and not gross or overly stuffed though food is a tad pricy.

I hope that Botanica can make its food more flavorful and FAR less greasy. The mixed chicory salad was by far the best thing we ate but the dressing was very heavy-handed. The Cassoulet was swimming in grease. The side of thick cut bread felt like it had been dipped completely in oil, then toasted, then taken out of the oven and either left to sit for a ling time or placed back in the oven to warm. The ambiance is very nice but he food needs a lot of work. I went there for lunch once and it was better than dinner. Not a good place for children.

Nothing about this trip forced us to reconsider our previous impressions. We were confirmed in our belief that the food is ok, but not noteworthy. Too heavy a hand with the pimenton (on many items) suggests to me that the cook is trying to overcompensate for something. Whatever that reason is, the pimenton overpowered everything else on those dishes. As with our previous visit, we found the prices high for what was delivered. That said, the fact that we could walk to the restaurant was enough of an incentive to ameliorate the price point. Finally, we sat inside on this occasion, which was nice and cozy on a cold evening. Bonus points for having a full bar and nice wine list.

My husband and I are chefs in Boston and it's quite hard for us to find and agree on a restaurant that excels in every area. Botanica did just that. Ingredients are fresh and perfectly prepared. Portions are perfect. The menu is written to cover a large range of tastes which is hard to do. Plenty of details are looked after; cleanliness, beautiful but calming interior, hand-thrown pottery for table, great coffee and our server was fabulous. Don't think...just go!

However, we had a reservation for brunch and waited for 40minutes past the reservation for the table. Not sure if they were overbooked or what, but that's a crazy wait. They got the food out fast once we were seated, but I expected a round of drinks, some free coffee, something besides an apology to make up for the terrible wait time.
