Our experience was amazing! Enjoyed trying different plates and being able to share with our party of 4. Great view. Staff is amazing and welcoming. Never felt rushed even though we were the last guests there at 11 pm. Thank you Lido Bottle Works!!!

We love this place! Creative menu, on the bay with a great view, open to the outside (some patio seating), friendly locals, fish bought that morning from the local Dory fleet...there's nothing not to like.

Super nice staff, great ambiance! Food varied. It was a birthday dinner and 5 of us dining. We ordered several plates to share. This is the consensus: short rib balls some loved, 2 said just ok. Cebiche (aka ceviche): VERY bland and boring. Steak frites: amazing! Burata dish: had a lot going on, but delicious! Can’t remember the other dish. Wines were excellent. We were unpleasantly surprised that they didn’t bring a little sweet bite for the birthday girl at the end. So....We went to Lido House’s Captain’s table for wine and dessert:)

We were there with friends, and sat outside. I'm glad because it was so noisy inside that we wouldn't have been able to have a conversation. Food and drinks were delicious, and service was excellent.

Fabulous food and service. We had wanted to sit inside but there was a live musician which we were excited about but apparently he couldn’t turn down his speaker. The noise level was bad as it’s a small restaurant inside. So we sat outside and noise level was better there. Our server, London, was great, very professional and accommodating. We really enjoyed ourselves.

Ordered meatball small plate - they arrived room temperature not heated. For an entrée we had the Dory catch - very good - and the Steak Frites which was ordered medium rare and was served medium well. Their solution was to delete the cost of the meatballs and the corkage fee for the bottle of wine we brought.

This is a small place but has a great view of the water. We went during the boat show and due to the nature of it being very busy our service slightly suffered. For food, I would recommend their bao buns. Totally random on their menu but worthy of ordering two orders!

Dined at Lido Bottle Works for the first time this week. We had a great time. The wine list is superb. We most enjoyed the Pork Belly Buns, Ceviche, and Tuna Appetizers as well as the Dory Catch of the day and the Hangar Steak and Frites. The atmosphere is fantastic and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Try it out the first chance you get!

Dishes wayyyy over seasoned and didn’t taste great
Service was very inexperienced
No idea it was a “beer & wine only” restaurant
Ambiance was decent
Wayyy too loud & cold inside
Will not be going back
I can forgive most all the above if the food was delicious -but it was far from that!

Great location but not enough seating inside. We froze outside for the second time.
Also, this is my third visit and I feel the same about the menu as well as our guests said the same. The menu is all over the board and nothing that stands out. Food is good but the options
are odd.

A colleague and I visited Lido Bottle Works on a Tuesday night to celebrate her birthday. LOVED! Will definitely be making it a regular spot. The food was creative, both presentation and flavors. We did a dinner of small plates and our favorites were the Goat Cheese Fritters and the Pork Belly Bao Buns. The only dish we didn’t love was the Cauliflower - good in concept but the sweet cream didn’t work and I would have liked it to be a hot dish. It was a quiet night when we were there (cold weeknights don’t get as much traffic) but our server said it’s typically pretty busy. Decor gave us the impression of being in a swanky ship’s cabin - smart design! Thanks Lido Bottle for a great evening!

Website/open table marketing said Prixe Fixe menu And Full Menu. When we arrived and were seated, we only saw the prixe fixe menu. When we asked the server, she looked at us like we were from Mars and her exact words were “You do know it’s Valentines Day, right?”. I showed her the page on my phone just so she would know that we came expecting the full menu. She ignored the question and immediately asked us what starter we wanted. The rest of the evening went about the same way. Our reservation was for 7:30, quite late. The place was maybe 2/3 full and not one person was seated after we arrived, however our server rushed us through the entire prixe fixe menu, hounding us for our next choice and trying to take away our plates with more than plenty of food still on the plate!! I live right across the street from the place and I want to love it, but this was a bad experience all the way around for a $200 meal. A lot of basics done just poorly.
