First time here. We grazed on appetizers which were are great, and shared beers. Service was spot-on. Only suggestion would be a full bar. We will be back.

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.

Nice little place along the water in Lido. Good place to share plates; we try several in our group and enjoyed most, tuna tartar was outstanding. Looking forward to coming for brunch.

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!

Food was outstanding. Great atmosphere but very loud. We could hear everyone’s conversations. Our waiter was very good but in general service could use a little help. We will definitely be back!

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.

I would have given everything 4.5 stars but the app won't let me, and 5 just seemed a bit too much. I loved the menu, and the whole concept of farm to table. I enjoyed sampling several smaller dishes vs. getting a giant oversized entree. Menu is unique and light. We had the eggplant hummus, ceviche, pasta, and a salad. I loved it. Beautiful spot on the water and parking is easy in the nearby structure.

The eggplant appetizer was excellent. The Jidori chicken sandwich was good too. The burgers & fries looked pretty tasty at the next table. Not too many people when we were there for lunch.
The service was a bit scattered & slow. Will try again for happy hour & see if things perk up.
