This was our first time to visit Bottle & Bond Kitchen and Bar and we really enjoyed ourselves! We were there on Father's Day. Wes was our server and he did a fantastic job of taking care of us and making recommendations. The ladies at the bar were exceptional as well. There was six of us and we sampled a wide variety of shareable apps, entrees and specialty drinks. Everything we tasted was wonderful! I would certainly recommend a visit to this establishment and I plan to return.

This was my second time dining at Bottle & Bond. The restaurant is beautiful, the drinks were amazing but the food and service we slacking. My first experience back in March was fantastic but this one, not so much. The food was good but not great. Worst of all, the service was terrible! The restaurant wasn't busy at all and there were servers and employees standing around everywhere. Our waitress had no personality, our food didn't come out all at once- my mother's meal was at least 4 minutes behind the rest of the tables. There were multiple times our waitress would be standing/leaning and talking while we were waiting on drinks or waiting to order.

We enjoyed our meal and experience at Bottle & Bond. It was a surprise for my husband for Fathers Day. He had never even heard of Bottle & Bond (which was good for us, we were able to surprise him, but I'm not sure that says much about Bottle & Bonds Advertising). There were a couple of issues with an under cooked hamburger, but all in all it was an enjoyable night. Our waitress was excellent, however being forced to continually apologize for the cooking staff must be difficult.

This was our 2nd time at Bottle & Bond. Both times we were a party of 4. First experience was excellent, last weekend was not great. When we sat down we immediately got water but waited 10mins for our drink order & another 10 Mins to get our first drinks. Our server did mention that he had a lot of other tables so we were patient. We ordered food about 25 Mins after being seated & waited over 40 Mins to receive our filets. During that time we placed a second drink order & waited over 10 Mins for those drinks.
We ordered 2 Meds & 2 Med Rares. When I cut into my Steak I expected Med Rare but it was definitely Med +.
Later we realized, When we got our steaks, they were placed at the wrong seats. The food server placed them correctly but our waiter came back to the table & said he placed them wrong, so we switched our plates before eating.

The server didn’t apologize or try to correct the situation, I requested another steak but said “if it’s going to take 30 Mins I’ll just eat this because we’ve been waiting a long time” & his response was “um, I don’t know how long it’ll take”

We ended up ordering 2 new filets, waited 12 Mins & they were still not cooked correctly but to save our time, we ate them. No apology was ever given, the server never spoke loud or clear enough for us to hear him. No manager visited the table to apologize for a 60+ min wait for an incorrect steak.

Mistakes happen & servers get overwhelmed. But the money we spent & distance we drove for this food deserves A++ service & food. We received C service, at best. I was extremely unpleased & expected more.
The only reason I didn’t request a manager or discount is because I didn’t want to come off as someone trying to get a cheap meal.

It’s worth 20 more miles & $100 to go to Jeff Ruby’s.

My girlfriends and I went to celebrate our 60th birthdays! Evelyn, our server, was very sweet, and attentive to all of us old ladies! She made our celebration even more fun! Food was delicious! Gnocchi is fantastic, the cornbread devine! The Bardstown Mule was a special favorite of one of my friends!
The brisket sandwich was scrumptous! Only suggestion from me would be to offer horseradish sauce. Love the atmosphere!

We will be visiting again! Hopefully very soon!

We visited BBKB after a day on the bourbon trail. The food was southern with a modern flair. The chicken fried oysters were amazing. My mother in law loved her gnocchi and Brussels sprouts. My husband got the brisket and loved it b/c it melted in your mouth. The hand cut fries were addicting. The only feedback I would give is that the two people in my party who ordered ribs, said that they were served cold. Our server Nikki was super nice and accommodating. To top it off, one of the staff from the store remembered that my husband wanted a signed bottle of their new release... after doing some hunting, she tracked one down for him and delivered it to our table! Overall a wonderful experience here. Would come again.

Great atmosphere and great food! My wife and I went there for our wedding anniversary and it made for a memorable night. It is a beautiful restaurant with a unique menu. It has options for the entire family at different price points. What is nice is the tables are spaced out enough to where a family could be there enjoying themselves while a couple could be there on date night and both parties can have their own space. The bourbon tasting area with bottles on display is a nice touch to restaurant. I will be recommending Bottle and Bond to all of my friends and family.

Unfortunately there was a large party in the restaurant the evening we were there, that party with the DJ and music made it difficult to enjoy any food or environment. Perhaps if I lived in the area I might give it another shot but really sorry I spend my time and money at this restaurant on this particular evening.

This place is incredible for Bardstown..
It's literally as good as any restaurant I've been to in NYC, Chicago, Houston, Miami, LA etc...
I got the New York Strip and it was the best steal I've ever eaten. I paid $163 for a Ribeye in Houston that wasn't this good.

Our food was tasty. Service could definitely be improved. It was our anniversary so my sister ordered the appetizer for $30 as a treat to us and when we got home we noticed we were charged for half. My brother In law ordered a certain beer and the wrong beer was delivered. He did not want to complain so we said it was ok. My husband ordered a salad and the salmon meal with broccoli but was given a salad with salmon as the protein. Again he said nothing. We have no desire to return.

My husband and I ate at the Bottle and Bond for our anniversary dinner. We started with the Brussel sprouts for an appetizer. I had the Caesar salad and my husband had the wedge salad, both were crisp with delicious dressings. We split the New York strip and it was cooked perfectly. We also split the bread pudding and I can say without a doubt that it was the best bread pudding I have ever eaten. So for an appetizer, a side salad, a split entree, tea, the best bread pudding I’ve ever tasted, and great service, our total was $88. We certainly could have chosen a less expensive entree but I really wanted to try the steak. We are already planning what to have on our next visit, so I would definitely recommend giving them a try.

We have heard of this place and finally had this chance to check it out. We made a reservation for 1:15on a Sunday. They were fairly busy but we may not have needed the reservation for our party of 3. The host and server were friendly and prompt. We started with two shareable items, Mac and cheese and the brussel sprouts. LOVED THEM BOTH! I could have made either of them my meal. We browsed the little store while we waited for our food and the team member there was knowledgeable and friendly. Lunch came and it was just as good as the starters. One burger, one chicken salad sandwich and the fried chicken. All were beautifully displayed, the right temp and delicious. Sorry there are no pictures we we're hungry so we just started eating! Our server recommend the bread pudding and it did not disappoint! We will be back and bring friends!
