Bottlefork - Permanently Closed Ratings and Reviews
The place had a really cool vibe. Well appointed cocktail selections, good selection of beer and wine.
The food is really good, very tasty, different levels of flavor in each dish. We started with wagyu beef jerky, very tender well balanced. Not salty could really enjoy the meat.
My wife had the fish with hominy succotash and I had grilled octopus and housemade spam. Very memorable. We don't live in Chicago but if we find our way back to the city we will come back. Try to get the bar table seats by the cooks.
I think that was the best pickle juice-inspired Bloody Mary I ever had. It was so tasty! The tots were absolutely delicious, too. My husband had the breakfast Sammich which apparently changes with the chef's whim and it was a big hit with him and all the tasters. Menu is limited but plenty of options to choose from. Service was perfect. Great food and drink!
I had the cast iron french toast and it was absolutely amazing! We also ordered the tots for starters and they were so tasty! They were covered in this delicious cheese sauce. Highly recommend for brunch and when you can make a reservation using OpenTable, it's kind of a no-brainer!
We had a bite to eat pre-theatre; had an attentive waiter who made solid food and drink recommendations. Our appetizers and entrees were familiar with a twist - highly recommend the tots with pimento cheese. Our entrees were well portioned and tasty. Would have liked to see a little more menu variety, but overall very good.
I was looking for a place with a varied menu for brunch and Bottllefork was centrally located and was recommended for their Bloody Mary's. (which were really good by the way) They should offer a Bloody Mary Bar with lots of stuff to add to make a meal in a glass. We sat outside and had a very comfortable and nice time. Our server was kind and attentive.
The food was good yet expensive with no sides included if you order a $25 sandwich. The place seems to pride themselves in creative cock tails and ofcourse charge you an arm and a leg so I was expecting an amazing cock tail....this was not the case. My cock tail has no sophistication or settle favors, it tasted just like orange soda which isn't a hard flavor to get to with all the supposedly over priced ingredients I was paying for. On top of all that our waiter was no where to be found most the evening. I would not recommend it or go back myself.
As we had never been to Bottlefork before we counted on our server to guide us through the menu. He recommended and described several items, starting with cocktails. He was spot on! Everything was delicious and we would highly recommend. Thanks for a wonderful evening!
Finally went to Bottlefork for something besides just drinks or dessert, and definitely glad we did. We started with a couple of appetizers, including the Mediterranean Salad and the Jerky. The salad was fabulous, with the perfect blend of textures and tastes, and was definitely large enough for sharing. Highly recommend as a starter. The jerky, to me, was very good, but I would prefer it as an accompaniment to drinks, versus a precursor to a meal. We also had a pre-dinner drink, and for fans of a good Old Fashioned, try their For Allocation…v nice. For entrees, we split the Hanger Steak and the Bacon Burger. Wow. That burger? Ah. Maze. ING!! They actually grind bacon into the beef for the patty, and it definitely works. One of the few disappointments of the meal for me, though, was the French fries that came with the burger. Pretty blah tasting compared to the burger (and compared to fries at many burger places). I’d like to see better fries, or a more unusual side. Also worth a special shout out is the service we got from Nick. He was perfect. Friendly, high-energy, and smart enough to give friends that haven’t seen each other since high school plenty of time to chit-chat and catch up. Thanks, Nick!
