Bottle & Bull is simply delicious. The staff is very attentive without being overbearing. We sat by the window and had a wonderful conversation. The salmon was perfectly cooked, same with the asparagus. Beautifully plate. Nothing was missing! I highly recommend this wonderful restaurant.

Service, location and ambience were great. The food and drinks were good but not great for the price. Had the brussel sprout appetizer and it was maybe 6 sprouts for $13. The steak skewers were good but a little under seasoned. I've been to this restaurant 3-4 times and would go back.

Sometimes you just want a quiet meal in an adults only atmosphere with great food, an interesting wine selection and innovative cocktails. The Bottle & Bull is the place for all of that. And then, like us, you return because they have the best burger and fries that you'll get anywhere.

I would have rated everything at 4 starts, but did not for one reason: your server arguing with a lifelong vegetarian that squid ink is vegetarian.

Squid ink is one of the most foul ingredients anyone can consume. It is literally the ocean’s equivalent of the nasty stuff a skunk sprays in defense. I am not offended by nor care that everyone else consumes it, just as I don’t care that they eat animals. I understand the food chain.

I’m disappointed that you didn’t list it on your menu, and I had to send my plate back after being assaulted by the putrid smell. That, would have lost you 1 star. . Your server arguing with me that it’s vegetarian, is unacceptable.

That poor experience over-shadowed the excellent appetizers, salads, beverages, and others’ meals.

Also, the place should you a tad more light.

We were picking up breakfast in downtown Kirkland and found Bottle and Bull. After we checked out their liquor menu online, my husband immediately wanted to try it. He said they had one of the best bourbon menus he’s seen (there are lots of other liquor options). The menu is unique and the food presentation was nice. We had the risotto and carrot/pea rigatoni. Everyone enjoyed their meal (and drinks). Waiter was attentive and friendly. They seem to be staggering tables for COVID reasons which was nice to see. They told us we only had 2 hours at our table which I was fine with and knew ahead of time from their website.

I love their food, the atmosphere and the service, but they seem to focus on beer and spirits, and have a limited wine selection.

Wow I want to love hybrid place but the food is just not good. Brussels soaked in oil and smothered in sauce. Teeny tiny dates that cost a ton. We spent a bunch of money and left starving. :(

Rack of lamb was wonderfully prepared and great depth of flavor. But as good as that was, the knowledge of Dusty and their liquor selection was second to none!

My wife and I were reminded right away that our table, which was a small table pushed against the bar, was reserved for a limited time; There was hardly anyone there. It was hard to have a conversation due to the loud music. There was no paper menu; we had to use a QR code. Their menu was totally different than what showed on the website. We weren’t feeling it. I paid for the drink and we left.

Service and food were absolutely delicious. The fries were addicting and we couldn’t stop eating it even when we were full. The drinks were just as yummy. Lots of selections of whiskey and cocktails.
The only gripe was my Kumamoto oysters. They were super tiny. I o ow they are a smaller type of oyster but 1 inch!! Come one. I felt that was not worth $4. Skip the oysters people.
