    I absolutely love all the craft cocktails and the balance of them is always great, I don't think I've had a bad drink here ever. The service is warmm friendly, and expedient. The food is always well cooked and presented. Anytime I want to impress a friend if they're in town I take them to bottle and bull because the decor is cozy and intimate. I prefer the dim lighting but I could see that being hard to read the menu depending on your eyesight. 10/10 would recommend!

    We had a great feast! The prices are a bit on the high side, and the quality is also superlative. It was a treat to be served by Casey the manager, and his cocktail named "To The Bitter End" is super tasty!

    I’ve wanted to try this place for years. They were gracious and seated us early for our reservation. Wine and beer were great. Brussels sprouts appetizer was also great but a small portion even for an app. Cuban Sammy was good and so was the lamb ragu even though it gave me heartburn. Pot de Crème was terrific. But the menu is seriously underwhelming

    My dining experience was quite ordinary. While the food met expectations, it didn’t stand out. The service, however, was noteworthy, with a staff that made an effort to be welcoming. Although it didn’t exceed my expectations, I’m uncertain if I would consider it a favorite for a return visit.

    Exceptional experience for a business dinner. The cocktails were creative, beautiful and Delicious. Loved the menu options. Brussels were tasty, black garlic butter was just yum, mussels super flavorful, and the desserts were a nice cap to the evening. Everyone enjoyed their selections. Fresh made pastas were a hit as was the burger. I will keep this on my must visit list when in the area

    We love this place. The vibe is good, with everyone on staff helping one another from front of house, to bar, to servers. They’re always busy, but not mobbed and the energy levels never lag. Nothing we’ve ordered has disappointed, and the bar drinks are excellent. They take very good care of you. This time we repeated our love affair with the steak tartar (outstanding), tried the brussels sprouts (wow—best we’ve had anywhere). My wife had the lamb sliders and I tried the pork cheeks, both of which were wonderful. This time I noted the wine list and enjoyed a nice Spanish red by the glass, while looking forward to trying one of the many bottles of wines from around the world on our next visit. We polished of our evening with a Spanish Coffee and Espresso Martini, both of which were perfect. I had a house made strawberry passion fruit sorbet which was a nice ending. Really, our new favorite hang out in Kirkland.

    Go here for the cocktails. My cocktail was the hibiscus sour and it was a delight. It had egg white so it had a nice foam on top and even some art in the foam. The burger and fries were very good as well. Ambiance is fun, this place has a speakeasy vibe.

    Cocktails were delicious and very pretty. Our food was yummy -- lamb pasta, lamb sliders, pork cheeks, and burger. The fries with the pork cheeks and burger were overly salty, too much salt so we couldn't eat them. We sat in a booth, which helped to manage the overall ambient noise. It appeared that it could get very noisy. Service was excellent. Our waiter was attentive, informed, and a very nice guy. Not our first time at this restaurant and we will return.

    The seats in the booths along the back are unpadded nor have cushions so found them very hard/uncomfortable. Otherwise a spectacular experience.
