Overall good experience. I had the filet and it was very good, but had ordered a filet in a restaurant in Charlottesville, VA just two weeks ago and although they were equal in tenderness, the Charlottesville one was far superior in flavor. The heirloom tomato and fried okra salad was exceptional.

We eat at fine dining restaurants all over the southeast and this was the best meal I have had in a long time. The okra and heirloom tomato salad w arugula and grouper were terrific and the best gazpacho ever!

We had a fantastic meal. The venue is romantic and intimate . The food was lovely. The reason we rated the restaurant so high was because of our server Scott. He was attentive and friendly . He said he recognized us from our previous visits. He was enthusiastic when encouraging us to come to the wine dinner. Just an amazing experience because of our server.

Really enjoyed our evening there. The service was impeccable, the food was served piping hot (when it was meant to be hot), the food was scrumptious and our waiter and support staff were on top of it all. A very nice experience.

We had a wonderful experience at The Bottle. Greeted at the door by name and seated immediately in a small cozy alcove. The craft cocktails were perfectly made, the wine we selected was not available but the wine steward offered a selection he felt was in the same flavor and price range. Entrees were large portions, the pork chop was by far the best selection at our table. We also had diver scallops and salmon which were also cooked to perfections.

Buggy experience. We were beset by fruit flies all night. One flew into my drink and the waiter eventually replaced it, but we were continually waving away flies. There pastrami yellow fin tuna was the highlight of the evening. The filet was cooked perfectly with excellent potatoes, but it wasn't the special event we were hoping for at the price.

The service, starting with valet and ending thru dessert was top notch. A tip of the cap to our server, the chef, and the server assistants for being friendly, approachable, and available without being overbearing. Highly recommend and will return. - Alex B.

The food was okay. Three of our steaks were overcooked. Hostess seemed unprofessional - as we left (well before closing time), she had her shoes off (high heeled shoes sitting by the door) and was lounging with her legs on a bench while on her cell phone - did not look at us nor say anything as we left. Overall, we are not planning to return. Grille 29 much better.

For the price we paid (upscale dining experience) it didn’t at all feel that way. First, we were kindly greeted by two young ladies at the hostess desk, both of whom were not appropriately dressed to host. Our table was clean and covered in linen as expected, but the floor around us should of been cleaned, too. I noticed a lot of crumbs on the floor and the runner next to our table should have been replaced months ago. Our waitress, Heidi, was awesome. Her demeanor and experience made our experience, better. While we waited for our food, we couldn’t enjoy the good music playing, as it was not louder then the now three people at the hostess station. So, their loud conversations and giggles overshadowed the music. As we looked out the window, our view was of the valet attendant who was constantly taking a puff from his vaper. Overall, the food was good, but the ambience, or lack thereof in this case, made this dining experience just okay, but definitively not worth the price we paid. We will not be back.

This was our first time at The Bottle and we were not disappointed. The place was very clean and comfortable. The noise level would have been excellent were it not for a noisy air handler over our head. Every time it switched on, the noise dominated everything else. The food was excellent. My wife and I shared the Spicy Bottle Rocket Shrimp Shrimp appetizer which was very tasty. The portion was huge!! The main courses were also excellent. My wife had the Pan Seared Georges Bank Sea Scallops and I had the Grilled Angus Beef Filet Mignon. Both dishes were cooked to perfection. We rounded the meal out with a bottle of red wine and a shared dessert. All in dinner for 2 came to $185 and change. Very pricy, but worth it for an intimate dinner out for two.

We always have a great meal at The Bottle. My husband and I went on a Monday night to have a nice dinner. We love their filet, mashed potatoes and asparagus. We comment every time we eat a filet at a different restaurant that it isn't as good as The Bottle. Enjoyed the salad and bread also. Service was excellent. We will be back for sure!

We had requested a quiet table for our party of four, and were seated upstairs, which was great. The wine, and one cocktail were quite good. The food would have been perfect, except the fish main courses were somewhat dried along one edge. No problem there, because portions were more than ample. Service was excellent. Of course we will be back to one of Huntsville’s finest restaurants.

One issue with The Bottle is the temperature inside the main dining area. Take a coat, they like the temps around 64, even though we asked them to shut the unit down to warm the place up, they decided we were asking too much. Other clients had there costs on during dinner so we were not the only table that was freezing. The food quality was good and our server was a little forgetful, forgot one persons salad for over fifteen minutes. Our group decided there were other better places to eat where we did not have to freeze to enjoy a good meal.

Food was as always outstanding. The table they put us at with a reservation of 5 at 6 pm was in a corner and they seated the tables right next to us even though there were plenty of open table throughout the restaurant. The price was not worth the experience. There was only a salad special and nothing else. It will be a long time before I spend this kind of money here again.

Celebrated an early Easter Dinner w family and really enjoyed both food and service. Three of us had expertly and tasty steaks, my filet was perfect and my daughters N.Y. strip one of the best I’ve tasted. Very good wine selection too. Only drawback was under cooked pork chop which was redone. Good meal, worth a return.

Waiter was very unprofessional. There was a gnat on my plate and when I pointed it out to him, he offered no apology just said something about it being that time of year. Then proceeded to tell the table next to us how “lit” he got at a wedding that weekend. He brought us no bread and one of the bus boys came and said we were supposed to have been brought bread. The food was okay. Nothing special. Expensive steak that was not worth the price. My wine glass had dust built up on it. The wine was good.

We got there well before our reservation time, but the hostess was ready for us. Beautifully laid table for two. My Hendricks Martini was perfectly made and nice and cold. My wife ordered the charcuterie platter as an appetizer and I ordered the raw oysters. Both exquisite choices. The oysters came with homemade kimchee and a flavorful seaweed relish. For the entree both of us ordered the grilled Scottish salmon over black rice and asparagus. It was hot off the grill and cooked perfectly!

Scott was our server and he was very professional and personable. When we mentioned it was our anniversary, he provided us with a mini-split of champagne after our meal!

The wine list is varied with many good choices. We both had a glass of the Pinot Grigio - very good.

This is a first class restaurant and I would go back for another special occasion (it would break the bank to dine here every week!)!
