There were 8 of us and everything was spectacular, cooked perfectly and service was on point.
this has always been an absolutely wonderful restaurant. superb food, service and great location. this time it was quite noisy at an after-dinner hour (8:45 on a Thurs eve) and my memory was it was quieter and a bit more relaxed in the past. but that may have been just circumstantial that eve. in any case, superb dining really.
Bottino is a classic. Very dependable. Good portions. Excellent service and food. Nice people.
not noisy. Good value for the money.
Consistently great food for 20 years. I've been coming to this restaurant for a long time and have found the food, service and ambiance to be wonderful. I especially love the garden room, which is available year round.
Service was rough. Had to wave down our server for bread plates, remind him about the cocktails we ordered, waived him down for every aspect of the meal. He was perfectly nice but had no sense of urgency. Wine glasses were dirty. They sat us at a table clearly meant for two people (we were four). When I told the host we pulled another table over, she rolled her eyes. Food was alright. Bruschetta starter and antipasto were acceptable. My father in law loved the Bolognese. Overall I wouldn’t recommend to a friend.
The food at Bottino is out of this world. At my table last night, people ordered lasagna, gnocchi, seafood fettuccine, and a seafood stew. To a person, everyone loved it. The atmosphere is great: positive energy and a welcoming vibe. The bartender helped us begin the night in a festive way. But, for some reason, the service experience at the table last night was not what I had experienced in the past. The meal was very rushed; so much that it detracted from the evening. Will definitely try again, though.
Food was flavorful and hot. Good variety on menu. Tables small but ok. Great bread but no plates. Hostess Lauren kind and helpful and accommodating. The others should take lead from her and brand a smile once in a while. There was 4 of us and food came out for 3 and then someone asked our 4th what she ordered. Be been numerous times and always enjoyed the food. Service is lack luster.
Crowded, noisy but what do you expect on a Saturday evening? Very caring service and pears with zabaglione for dessert is to die for.
Always great for a large group. Great service, tasty food at reasonable price. We’ll go back.
Very pleasant. Good food and ambiance near Chelsea galleries without the scene.
Excellent throughout all dishes at a high standard not easy congratulations!
I have been going there for years..that night it felt like a diner..ordered wine 5 minutes later our dinner came..everything was rushed I had lasagna Bolognese tasteless airplane food..my guest was served a weak linguine Congolese..seriously..I'm not sure I would recommend for a Tuesday night
Charming restaurant with quick and friendly service. The food was delicious also!
Terrific service, nice decor, but the kitchen needs a serious quality check.
I was surprised at how empty it was for a Friday lunch....made me worry about the art world and the Chelsea location....in years past, it has been absolutely bustling....missed that high energy but it was a great to catch up with one of my artists who was in NYC from Wisconsin as it was so quiet. I realize losts of dealers are getting ready for the ADAA fair etc. The food was yummy as always.
I had the most delicious pasta with lobster and rock shrimp. I couldnt wait to eat my take home leftovers for lunch next day. I think Ill order it every time! Forgot how much I love the back room looking into the garden even though that night was frigid. Great atmosphere and low noise relative to other restaurants.
This was a really great find. We loved the food and the chardonnay was nice.
My niece and I met for an early lunch before visiting some galleries and I must say the food was excellent. The setting in back room very pleasant and surprisingly quiet for a Saturday lunch. Overall very good and look forward to going back soon.
The service wasn’t that great!
Horrific service and incredibly slow
No one informed us only the prix fix menu was available
Bathrooms were in disgusting condition
Valentine’s Day dinner with prix fixe menu. Seated immediately. Great waiter and service. Very well staffed. Food seemed very assembly line due to the holiday. I may try again on a regular night.
Good for a group. Service was fast and food came out quickly.
Bottino is one of my favorite restaurants to have lunch when I'm gallery hopping in Chelsea. The menu and the setting are unpretentious but sophisticated and there are enough food options to suit most. I usually have the shrimp with lentils which is outstanding but their grilled chicken sandwich was also great. We were a table of four on a Saturday afternoon and got plenty of attention, excellent service, and we were all satisfied with our choices.
This restaurant has it all: great food, wonderful wine, and attentive service. It's also dignified; not a backward baseball cap in sight. Not stodgy either. Very upbeat, and adult. The accommodated a picky eater, and vinophiles will also be pleased. The menu is quite varied, but everything we had (app, pasta, and entree) were well-seasoned and interesting. We are returning soon, with a larger group.
Always great...and then we have Lauren and Anna....what more do we need?
Table for 2 wedged in between big tables. Pedestrian food, nothing special. Dessert was good. Service ok cause very busy. Nothing special but obviously trendy.
It was a wonderful experience. We had an attentive(but not annoyingly so) waiter. The food was fantastic. And we weren’t rushed or made to feel they needed our table. Highly recommend.
server had no knowledge to recommend wine, or food. used to like this restaurant, no longer.
As usual, the food was great, the service was attentive and the ambiance comfortable and attractive.
We were at a gallery opening and Bottino is very convenient to the Chelsea galleries. It was a very cold night so it was nice to be able to walk only one block. Friendly, helpful service and good food at a good value.
nice food, friendly spot with fabulous service and a varied menu
Appreciated friendly and warm service as well as interior white brick wall with glass enclosed room and delicious lunch. Thank you!
Wonderful ambiance. Service could not have been nicer. And the check was very reasonable.
Such a wonderful place. Our favorite local spot because it’s consistently excellent food and very welcoming and always buzzy.
Great food and excellent service.
The experience we had here was unacceptable. Fish was frozen - not cooked through. The waiter ignorant, unkind, and sarcastic. The hostess was rude, unapologetic, and not welcoming. The lentils were served cold from a can.
Great food! Ate with the “early crowd” but great spot later at night.
We had a lovely lunch with a friend. As someone else mentioned, I found the slightly backward slant of the chair a small discomfort; however, I would go there again and would recommend it to others. It is very convenient to galleries in the area.
It’s just the best
