Bottle fish is our favorite local restaurant in Brentwood. They have fresh fish prepared consistently well and my kids love their kids menu. Went with the tuna on forbidden rice for our appetizer and the miso cod for my main. I often go here when I want a good meal that is healthy, fresh and delicious. Wait staff is always friendly and we are grateful to have them in the area.

Great food and good service! A little pricey, but we'd go back from time to time for the great fish.

Bottlefish is so good. The menu is varied with something for everyone. We've eaten there several times and had most of the dishes on the menu. We'd recommend this restaurant for great fish, tasty chicken and terrific drinks!!!

Soups, salmon, and brussels sprouts were very good. We arrived for an early dinner, so the restaurant was almost empty and we had a nice table at the window.

We went to celebrate a birthday. Got there a little early for dinner time, so it wasn’t loud. The food was amazing, but what blew us away most was the tuna on forbidden rice. It’s a MUST HAVE.

The food and the ambience are pretty good. We sat in The bar for dinner, The female bartender had a major attitude towards us. Everything we asked her seemed like a problem for her. I asked her to wipe down the bar where we were sitting! It really ruined the whole evening, unfortunately. I spoke to the manager and mentioned this is the 2nd time this has happened to us there. He didn’t seem to care. Probably won’t go back.

My boyfriend was apprehensive about the place being a non-seafood lover and then doubly so when we pulled up and saw that is was upstairs in a strip mall. However, it is still a happening part of Brentwood and the scene inside is very comfortable and cool. We started with the cotija corn crema side to share (Delicious!) which was surprisingly not too decadent and mildly charred and delicious. I'm a small eater so I had the black cod lettuce cups as my entrée and WOW so good. Not sure if poached in butter but so flavorful and melt in my mouth. My boyfriend had the chicken sandwich and really enjoyed! He said one of the best he's had, though he didn't get it with the mayo or dressings the chef put on the menu so it might be better if you just adhere to the way it's prepared by the chef (I usually find that to be the case). Anthony our waiter was attentive and friendly! I ordered the spicy margarita with light agave and I really appreciated that he reiterated "light agave" when he gave it to me. Delicious drink as well and overall great experience. My non-seafood loving boyfriend attests he'd be happy to go back if were not for the price! The price is quite high for the amount of food and quality, albeit good. We would both love to go back frequently but will probably have to wait for a special occasion to make it back.

We had never been here before but we were looking for a seafood restaurant and they had pretty good reviews. Food was quite good, service was good and the ambience was nice with a comfortable vibe. No complaints other than it was a bit loud and slightly difficult to have a conversation without having to talk over the noise level.

We still enjoyed the meal and the evening and Yes we would eat here again.

The food was great! We enjoyed all our dishes. The service was great! I let our server know it was my birthday and he brought me a dessert of my choice to celebrate!

The ambiance at the restaurant is really lovely, very modern.

Only complaint was that we had some people sitting nearby and they got a little loud.

We will be back. and we already recommended Bottlefish to our friends!

We only get to visit once a year, but it's our favorite restaurant in the LA area so we make the most of it each time. Service is consistently excellent and the food/drinks are always great. If you like spicy drinks--get the Sage Advice. So good. The black cod was fantastic as well. We've never had anything here that we didn't love.

Bottlefish in the Brentwood Gardens shopping center is beautiful. This is where the Daily Grill use to be upstairs. Bottlefish is the creation of the talented team that created California Pizza Kitchen. Bottlefish is beautiful and welcoming. The space is lovely with an exhibition kitchen. The wine list is fantastic and the food was great! I am so glad we found Bottlefish. Great for lunch and dinner. Wonderful menu, great food, beautiful restaurant, GREAT service! I definitely suggest dining here for everyday, birthdays, anniversaries, etc. Love Bottlefish!

We were a party of six and ordered a variety of dishes. Each dish was superb. We started with a dozen and half oysters which were beautifully shucked and delicious. Appetizers ranged from grilled artichokes to tortilla soup, salad, tuna over crispy rice, popcorn shrimp. Service was great. Main courses ranged from ginger salmon to seared scallops (both beautifully prepared). Desserts were also excellent.

Food and service were excellent. The ginger salmon was very tasty and not overcooked. The crab-stuffed lobster was also very good, and the shells pre-cracked. Prices are a little high, and charging for an already over-priced soft drink refill is tacky for a nice restaurant.

We had a very enjoyable evening for Valentine's Day. Bread and spicy tuna was excellent, branzino was superb, brussell sprouts and califlower tasty. My swordfish was fresh but a little bland. Our server was terrific, but it took forever to get our meals from the kitchen. It's a classy, grown up restaurant where you can have a terrific meal and hear your friends talk. Not the hippest place in town, but always a sure bet for solid good food.

My husband and I went for a late lunch. We shared a grilled artichoke and a lobster Cobb which left us room to share a generous slice of lemon pie. I appreciate that you have a choice of flat or sparkling water.
