The bottle was a great place to enjoy a date night with my wife. Our server, Sam, was great. We got some of the best service I have gotten in Huntsville so far. (We have been here since September.) The food was very flavorful and not to heavy. The salad was creative and perfect to start out with. My wife got the shrimp pasta app and really enjoyed it since she was craving Shrimp. I got the new york strip and it was cooked exactly how I ordered it and had lots of strong flavor. All of the food we ordered was dishes that I would not normally make at home. That is usually my goal for going out to eat somewhere nice. The cocktails also fall into that category.

Our experience was very disappointing, from beginning to end. The most positive thing we can say is the ambience was nice. The quiet atmosphere and decor were appreciated. We were seated and ignored for several minutes. Service was not good. The server mixed up the beers and didn’t admit it until another was ordered. Other tables were offered bread but we had to ask. The appetizer was fair. The wine we ordered was decent. The food was underwhelming and bland. The fish dish was luke warm. The steak normally comes with fingerling potatoes but they substituted mashed. The choices on the menu also seemed to be quite limited. The dessert brulees were also just “meh”. For what we paid we were extremely let down. We would not recommend, as there have to be better dining options in the downtown area.

Enjoyed dinner at The Bottle last night before a downtown concert. It was the first time we’d eaten there in several years after having some not so great meals there in the past. Very happy to report that they seem to have their act together again and it was a great experience. Server Blake was outstanding and made our evening special. Great wines without excessive markups. Which is rare at fine dining establishments. Our food was fresh and well prepared. Only complaint is the Caesar salad was pretty mediocre, but that did not detract from the overall meal. Will be back again soon!

The negative was the bread pudding - it was awful. Maybe you should contract with the Cajun Steamer
to supply you with Bread Pudding - it is tops!

Had heard of The Bottle so my husband and I decided to check it out 03/04/2020. We were greeted and seated ..... skip to review. We had such a professional server, experienced and knowledgeable of everything on menu and could easily answer questions. Food was amazing! Mussels and oysters for appetizers: oysters were perfect and the mussels were incredible . Fried okra heirloom tomato salad (fabulous). I had the Scottish salmon in which was delicious.....my husband had the scallops said wonderful. Everything we had was spot on . We did not try any desserts, however, did enjoy some french pressed coffee. It was a pleasant and quiet evening with my husband. The food was fabulous.

The food was incredible and the service was fantastic. The only thing I was a tad disappointed with was the ambiance...I was expecting it to be a little "fancier". The couple on either side of us was less than a foot away, making it impossible not to overhear every word of their conversation.

The best part of the meal was the bread and butter. The food is very forgettable. Strip steak was tough and the crab cake was fishy and bland. It does have a great ambiance and the cocktails were good though.

We ate at The Bottle last year and it was impeccable, food was great, desert was great, atmosphere was great. This year it was just not as good, the menu options were better last year, our seating arrangements were better last year. The deserts were either under done or WAY overcooked. We were crammed into this corner of a small room that looked like a bedroom with 4 other couples. The cous cous under my grouper was cold by the time it reached the second floor. However, the service was outstanding!

Between our party of 4, we ordered three different entrees (steak, chicken/pasta, and salmon). I had the NY strip and it was EXCELLENT! My husband had the chicken & pasta dish and he was not a fan of it. The other two in our party ordered salmon and thought it was very good. The ambiance is very nice and the location is good with available parking or valet. We had good service, but almost too good! The server came to the table every 2 minutes throughout the meal to refill our water glasses and ask how everything was. Hard to have a conversation, so a little "too good" of service :). I will definitely go back though because the food and atmosphere were excellent!

An example of some of the finest service in Huntsville. It was our 10th anniversary, and they took great care of us, from the greeting at the door until we left the restaurant. The food was amazing as well.

Most of the food was excellent however, my wife ordered the NY strip to be cooked medium. It came out well done. We sent it back and it came out medium well. My Filet was supposed to be medium and it came out medium well too. I expected better from a place that is so expensive.
The oysters were phenomenal. Staff was friendly and service was good.

There were 5 of us and we were greeted promptly, orders for drinks taken, and specials revealed. We all had salads, three had the appetizer crab cake for entrees, and one had mussels and the other the tuna. We all agreed we selected the right item. We chose two desserts, the chocolate roulade and almond cake with ice cream. Both were hits! Service was personable and very attentive. We will return.

Th e cheese and meat plate (combined) was good and had a little bit of everything . The fried okra salad would have been better without the okra and the Caesar was doused in dressing.
Entrees were good as scallops were decent sized and steaks were cooked accurately

We have always enjoyed dining at the Bottle. But we were disappointed last night. We had made a reservation on Open Table a week in advance for a 6 pm reservation...having dinner before we attended a show. When we arrived, we were seated upstairs in what the host described as the "overflow room". It was a cold, plain, overly bright room that lacked the atmosphere that we usually experience at the Bottle. I regret that I did not request a different table as soon as we were seated...but that is sometimes hard to do without making a bit of a scene.

The food was excellent as was the service. But the atmosphere in the overflow room really made it a disappointing dinner.

Everything tasted great, however the lettuce for the salad was not filled with very green mix of lettuce. It just appeared a lessor quality of lettuce. The service was fantastic!
