Not only is the ambience beautiful, the food is amazing. I love that there are several different choices of meal sizes such as the small menu items or other entrees, like salmon and scallops. You can also order several different customizable fresh fish dishes. Absolute MUST orders are the crab cake, which is insane (best I've ever had), or the spicy tuna on crispy black rice. The lobster bisque is also incredible as are the crisply brussel sprouts in the side order menu. They also always have great specials. The wait staff always have incredible suggestions from the menu as well. Don't miss this memorable dining experience!

We came to celebrate my birthday. Our waiter Tom was amazing, the food was outstanding (with the exception of the sole which was lacking flavor), drinks were delicious, and the atmosphere was perfect for my special evening. I would definitely come back and recommend Bottlefish. My entire party was more than pleased and satisfied!

Bottlefish is a wonderful restaurant. The food is terrific and the ambiance is very pleasant. It is not too loud and the tables are well spaced. The staff is lovely and attentive without being over bearing. I will and have recommend this restaurant. It is on the pricey side but the quality of the food is top notch.

Anthony was wonderful, very engaging and helpful. This is my favorite restaurant for special occasions and the complimentary birthday lemon pie was so delicious. I usually come on weeknights and prefer the noise level, but Saturday night was very festive with lots of good vibe.

3/5 people in our party got sick that night. Not sure from what. Had really bad heartburn/upset stomachs from something we ate.

Service and food fabulous. Best swordfish I’ve had in years.
The only issue I have is the very high noise level.

Only issue was one steak over cooked, but they re-did without question and was good second time around. That's why I gave a 4 rather than a 5. We'll be back next week1

The food is very good but the sound is deafening. We had great difficulty having a conversation. We complained to management on earlier visits but so far they have made no modifications. This last visit will be our last visit.

My favorite thing about this place is the in door/ out door aspect of the place. The seating is comfortable and it has a great ambiance.
The food is good. I have enjoyed the fish items but a few things I had were just o.k. The fish comes with a bitter broccoli. I would prefer a cole slaw but that was not a choice. I prefer a thin french fry. they only have thick
I had spicy tuna appetizer on sticky rice which was great but I was underwelmed by the popcorn shrimp.
I will definitely go back and try more dishes.

As always, Bottlefish was excellent. A bit more costly than the average restaurant, but you don’t mind when the experience is worth the price. The food, service and ambience are consistently excellent.

Bottlefish is a fine restaurant. The food is good ( a little spicy), drinks and oysters are great. Ambiance is fun. Only negatives are that it is very noisy, not much on the menu for kids, and although it is listed as only $$ on Open Table, it is expensive for what you get. Beware a martini will cost $18.

Eating on the patio was good, not quite as noisy. Great food, fabulous waiter. My Cucumber martini was delicious and refreshing! I had the Scallops on a bed of creamed corn, couldn't have been better!

It was very difficult to carry on a conversation. I will not return to a noisy restaurant. The food was only so-so. If it weren't for the noise I might consider trying it again.

The food is very good but we were disappointed by the lady who led us to our table when we first arrived. I called earlier to request an outside table for four and was told although it was first come first serve, they would make a note. When we were brought to a table by the kitchen, I asked if there was a different one. She was a little “snippy” and said. “ it’s first come, first served”. And walked away. She the left for the evening and we eventually were given s different table when we asked. Service the rest of the night was very good.

While the service was excellent, the food has gone down a few pegs. The grilled Branzino was somewhat dry and flavorless.
