Been here before and this was the first time service was poor, non attentive waitress and my plate arrived very late. To be fair the chef sent a complimentary dessert and I was not charged for my plate.

We sat outside. It’s was very enjoyable because the weather was beautiful and the view of the lights in the trees was very pretty. Service was good. Food just ok. We are regulars and will go back.

The manager was very nice. Our waiter was not attentive as I would have preferred. We had to wait long periods of time in between for service. Otherwise, my family and I had a good experience.

I love Botika! I’ve eaten there many times. This last time I was a bit disappointed, the portions and menu have changed but the price remains the same. I usually share a plate with a loved one but this time it was barely enough food to satisfy one guest.

The food was mediocre at best. The waiter gave us a rehearsed introduction to the food experience that was not reflected in the menu. The sushi roll I order was not good. I've had better in HEB for a lot less. And to make things worse the waiter ran my credit card on a wrong check which was twice as much as mine. He told me that they have reversed the transaction and that I would have my card credited in 2 to 3 business days. What!!! With so many good restaurants at the Pearl, I recommend everyone to stay away from this one. I you are headed to a big deception.

Fantastic dinner when Japanese/Chinese/Peruvian influences come together. Enjoyed it so much with the guys that I took my wife back 3 nights later. Try the Octopus and Short Rib Noodles for sure-but it's all great.

Girls’ night out was delightful! Our waitress had fantastic recommendations, the food both looked and tasted incredible, and the ambience was the right balance of chic and casual. We dressed up but would not have felt out of place in jeans, either.

The service is great! I made a reservation for 7 pm and called to see if they could seat us an hour early and they were more than happy to accommodate.

The waiter was prompt and gave great direction on what to try. Everything we ate was incredible. The poke was fresh and the fish melted like butter. Our main courses were also exceptional and the portions were great.

They even gave my husband a complimentary dessert for his birthday which was also delicious (chocolate torte).

We definitely plan to return.

The food is great, but the service not so much. Our server was rather rude. Our dishes all came out at different times with about 45 min in between the first person and last person getting their food. When I asked the server about the other dishes, he said that it’s normal for things to come out at different times. I wish I knew that was their policy going in and we would have gone somewhere else where we could all eat at the same time. When the final dish came out, they immediately brought the check. I thought that was odd as he had his food for about 5 min. The prices are on the higher end- 4 people w/food & drinks $170+.

I’ve been here before and noticed the food came out slow, but the previous serves were super nice and made us feel like we could hang out. We may try it again, but with the prices, we will probably choose another place.

My last visit to Botika before this most recent one was right before the pandemic, so I had my favorite dishes and expectations. The pork buns had much less meat, and the fresh mint overpowered every bite. The original flavors were still there, just not at the same harmonious ratio. The eggplant noodles went from large udon like size in a sweet and savory dark sauce, to almost angel hair sized noodles in the same flavored sauce that now feels thick and syrupy, enveloping the slim noodles that just make the syrup feel even thicker and more pungent in your mouth. The lack of diverse texture in the dish makes it much less appetizing. Again, the flavor profiles were in each plate, but texture and balance kept me from feeling the satisfaction of eating dishes I really looked forward to and bragged to my friend about. Her dish was by far the winner- the chicken teriyaki was amazing!! I can’t say I wouldn’t go back- but I can say I will look for a new favorite dish.

The Paloma Botika was refreshing and not too sweet. The sushi was fresh and flavorful. The empanadas had layers of flavor. The asparagus was a surprise - firm but not too, drizzled with a delicious aioli and peppery garnish.

The restaurant has been getting a lot of hype lately in the media -- while the sashimi was good - the portions were super small - terrible value. Plus they did not have Spicy Mayo to go with Sushi -- what place that serves sushi doesn't have spicy mayo. i had to send the octopus back as it was "luke" cold/warm and hard as a rock. The kitchen redid it, and it was good. The premium sake prices are really high for a little 6-ounce amount - and served in a wine glass vs. sushi glass. I do not plan to return, and don't really see why it is getting so much hype.

pork buns were spectacular, worth the trip. Potstickeers were pretty good as was the
teriyaki chicken, as was the dragon roll . The lemon bar dessert was very good. the chilean wine was good and the staff was very nice. Will plan to come back and work my way thru the menu and get more pork buns.
