This time was not as good as the previous ones… it was noisy, the food came all at different times (some rather late) and the service was extremely slow

Went out with the wife for a rare date night and we had an amazing time! Everything from the service (our server, Grace was amazing!) to the drinks and the food were amazing as usual! Do yourself a favor and make sure you order the steamed buns!

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.

Our server did not know the answers to basic questions about what is offered. He also never came and checked on us. I ordered sashimi and it was brought out first within 5 mins of ordering. The other items were brought out as they were ready which was 15 mins after my food. There is no reason to bring sashimi out first as it
requires almost no prep. I had to sit there and watch them eat. The lady who brought out the food said they just bring it when ready. So for a restaurant to do this at this high (over priced) price point is not good. People want to dine together not watch each other eat by themselves. Overall unimpressed. Which for spending $250 was a waste.

Everything was real good except the ribeye steak was very undercooked. Even when it came back out it was still not a medium temp, but more rare than medium. Grave was amazing as our server. All other food was delicious. Highly recommend the eggplant dish.

Sushi was different and very good, just not much to choose from.. The steam buns were the best! We shared the lomo saltado and the flavors were a little strong, but still a good mixture. Service and drinks were great.

Food was great. Service a bit slow, barley say our waitress and when you get your bill you don’t get an a paper bill breaking down your items that’s you order. They take your payment, scan it and tell you to sign on this little phone like machine. The problem is they automatically put 20% as a tip. Just a FYI.

The concept of Asian- South American cuisine was a big draw for us. After traveling across South American we long for rest so with an authentic menu and well prepared food. The empanadas were fantastic and the dragon sushi really hit the mark. We will be back.

First time dining there. Great experience. Our server was Emily and she did a great job. We shared the hanger steak Lomo saltado. It was plenty of food for two and was absolutely delicious. We will definitely return and try more items on the menu.

Nice place but underwhelming for the price. Great concept but food what we ordered was very average. It is possible to eat gluten free but usually required removal of sauces / flavor so what's the point. I believe most of their sauces contained soy sauce which is very easy to sub for tamari and not lose any flavor. This place could be a gem.

Nevertheless, the service was excellent.

Introduced two of my friends to Botika for the first time and it did not disappoint! We shared dumplings, steamed buns, eggplant noodles, and dessert. All was delicious! We also had a variety of drinks that were refreshing and delicious! The staff did an amazing job taking care of everyone in the restaurant. We will definitely be back!
