Great staff and amazing outdoor seating!
We really enjoyed the food, atmosphere and service was extremely friendly. The service could have been a bit more attentive, but the quality of the food and drinks more than made up for it. I highly recommend!
Great food and ambiance. Bread pudding was best I ever had. Service was a little slow but overall fabulous
We loved the garden, the food was great and the service was excellent.
My girlfriends and I dined at Bottino last Friday and it was nothing but exceptional. The restaurant allowed us to push back our reservation by 30 minutes (other restaurants have not been so lenient in COVID times) and were so kind when we arrived. From the service to the food, it was a seamless, enjoyable experience. My friends didn't have to pour their own wine once as the manager was at the table every time their glasses were nearing empty. Towards the end of our meal, champagne flutes and dessert spoons were placed on the table and the manager brought over a complimentary bottle of champagne and a dessert. When asked, the manager explained that he had seen in the computer that we had not dined there before. The simple yet important level of attention and detail is what makes guests return and we most definitely will. Another note to add is that we are a group of women in our young 20's and sometimes can be met with restaurant staff who simply assume we will be obnoxious or that we won't take care of our server, and in turn treat us like juveniles. That was not the case at Bottino. The entirety of the staff were wonderful people. So glad to have added another great restaurant to the list.
The staff was so friendly and accommodating. Perfect place for a covid meal with open air, a big back patio, overhang, and heat lamps. Food and ambiance was amazing as well.
One of the best places in the city! Amazing food + beautiful ambiance + friendly staff.
Very enjoyable evening in the garden. Shared the appetizer of arancini which was very good and large enough to share, We enjoyed entrees of chicken and the Cavatelli alla Norma. Good friendly service. Would definitely return.
great -- lovely patio -- great food -- excellent service
Have been to Bottino many times, and have always had a good experience there. Was there recently and overall experience was good, but had the salmon which was disappointing. The salmon was dry especially the outside and it was a relatively small pc. Although the entree is the most important aspect of the meal, the tasty salad and cool ambience helped save the day.
First time there and it could not have been nicer. Delicious food especially the pasta. Garden was beautiful and tables safely spaced. Will definitely be back
I went on Saturday night, expecting to sit outdoors. But the restaurant had booked a wedding party for the garden/patio space. However, all the doors and windows were open and no one was sitting near us for most of our time there. I do have doubts about whether the restaurant was in compliance with regard to the number of party guests in the space and at least one maskless guest came into the restaurant, to the register area where a number of staff were, while I was there. And another customer strode through the restaurant without a mask. We deliberated whether to stay and opted to do so although this was before we saw the conduct of some of the customers.
The salad (with stilton cheese and pomegranates) was excellent, if not a bit on the small side. My friend loved her chicken dish. I had the special (lamb chops), which were good but overcooked. My hands were actually sore from all the effort I had to expend cutting the meat.
If it had not been for the Covid-19 issues I would have enjoyed the experience more.
Amazing staff, delicious food, what more can you ask for!!!!
Waiters misdeliverred items. Perhaps because there were short staffed.
But food and ambiance is fantastic so it’s still a
Go to restaurant for me.
Bottino’s has become my favorite place to eat. The food is delicious, the service is great. Took a friend to Bottino’s for a birthday dinner and they put a candle in dessert without me even asking. Highly recommend
Bottino continually delivers! The garden was lovely and every COVID regulation was followed. The steak was a great treat, not to mention the Dry Reisling!! We had a very relaxing dinner.
In the pandemic, finding a place to dine in NYC that isn't ON the street and ISN'T indoors is a challenge. Bottino has lovely outdoor patio (in the middle of Chelsea) that also offers protection from rain (glass roof) and cold (overhead heaters, activated as needed). It feels solid and established vs recently thrown together with plywood! The waitstaff went out of their way to make everything and everyone comfortable and the food, although not creative or provocative (perhaps a tad pricey), was thoroughly delicious and stylishly served. Traditional (but not fuddy-duddy) Italian food + a solid wine menu and super welcoming staff are probably what contributed to making this restaurant stand the test of time. Ideal for a very small celebration (as was our case)
Perfect West Chelsea spot. Also perfect right now during Covid because of the great outdoor space.
Felt like I was in Italy. Didn’t feel rushed and very relaxing vibes. I will be going back food was very good and fresh. Just amazing overall experience.
Great experience, came to eat after visiting the vessel and the edge. Definitely a great way to end the night. The steak was delicious, as were the drinks. The service by Eric was even better. He was communicative in letting us know a certain dish would take longer to come out, and even recommended certain dishes. Great experience. Definitely coming back.
Thank you so much for this great review! Eric is the best and I will let him know you had such nice things to say about him and Bottino!
Beautiful outdoor garden for a special occasion! Loved the ambiance!
I’ve been going to Bottino for fifteen years - new owners/staff have made it into nothing of what it once was. I’d choose elsewhere.
I have owned Bottino for 24 years and yes we have made some changes. Much of the old staff has not opted to return yet, many have. I feel that the new chef, and the new manager have been doing a great job keeping Bottino alive during this difficult time, as reviews here and elsewhere attest. Of course not every night is equally stellar, not everyone has the same experience. Please let me know what happened to turn a loyal regular against us. You can email me anytime thru the website.
Nice place.My husband and I had a great time.Great Service and food.
The staff was so wonderfully nice and the food was delicious. The environment was incredible and relaxing yet romantic. Wonderful restaurant for any occasion
Our dinners are always awesome at Bottino. We just miss Lauren so much!
Food was fantastic...the staff is very friendly and accommodating.... the outdoor patio in the back is so nice....we'll definitely be going back!
Great food and service, outdoor dining available in front of in the patio of the restaurant
Great experience. I had dinner with a friend for my birthday at bottino. The staff was very attentive and very friendly. Food was great. Steak was a little fatty but otherwise delicious. And the ambience is great. I’ve been here a few times before and this was definitely the best experience. Maybe under new management or a new staff? Either way will definitely be back.
Beautiful ambiance, excellent service and delicious food. Such a nice experience dining out for the first time since the pandemic.
Lovely outdoor garden! Delicious lunch. Great place to have space outside with a friend or a small group
The staff is so friendly and amazing, I was planning a surprise dinner for my sister and was running early, I asked them to cover for me and say the table wasn't ready and to stall. They were great and saved the surprise! The ambience was great, their outdoor space is such a gem hidden in the back of this restaurant. Great GF pasta options, and the food generally was amazing. We live nearby and this is our new favourite.
Thanks so much! That is wonderful to hear; our neighbors are really important to us and your patronage and support is really appreciated! Hope to see you again soon -- Danny
Really pretty outside/garden dining. Fabulous margaritas and really lovely steak. Very fun evening
Love that the outdoor garden feels like a hybrid of ondoors/outdoors.
Surprisingly crowded for a social distancing garden experience. Glad they were full, but I would have been more comfortable if there really was a 6 foot distance between tables (I think it was more like 4 feet). Servers were courteous and nice (and apprpriately masked), but they may have been understaffed for the number of diners they were serving. Food was good, but my salmon was more done than I had asked for, and my partner's lamb chops were also a little overdone (medium rather than medium rare, in both cases). Did love the broccoli rabe sauted wth anchovy butter, and the berry tart dessert was very good. Don't get me wrong - everything was very good, and staff was extremely nice.
Happy to see this awesome restaurant still open for business! We love it!
Excellent as always!
Such a beautiful outdoor garden setting! Food and service were great.
Lovely place, great staff!
Above and beyond service! A great place to celebrate my birthday
Treat yourself. This place is a gem! Love Chef Jamie Kenyon.
