What an extraordinary meal! We've dined at The Bottle many times, but the restaurant has moved to an entirely new level. on par with Cotton Row, Chez FonFon, the Highlands Bar and Grill, Garden & Galley and Bistro 218. Out-of-this-world cuisine, extremely courteous waitstaff and an ambience befitting the quality of the meal. My wife and I celebrated her birthday there Saturday evening with the venison and fois gras sausage dinner, paired with a bottle of 2017 Duckhorn Cabernet Sauvignon -- spectacular.

The waitstaff sets an example of service that other restaurants should aspire to. Kudos to our server Blake, and to the bar staff. I highly recommend The Bottle, and give it my most enthusiastic endorsement.

Amazing food and the staff was great. The grouper and chicken was delish.

Chef Andy served us an off menu vegan spread he whipped up just for us! We love coming to The Bottle and being able to eat vegan and gluten free with such ease! Thank you so much!

Food wasn’t near as good as past experience there. We had a crab cake appetizer and it was bland and tasteless , service was ok but expected better for the overall cost. Wouldn’t go again.

We enjoyed our dinner so much. It was a birthday celebration and a friend called ahead to pay for dessert and a wonderful birthday card was provided to us. The staff went above and beyond to make this a very special occasion.
The steak was spectacular and the bread was Incredible. We will be back!

The food was AMAZING, as always. Everything cooked perfectly, and tasted delicious. The service was slow, and not great. The Bottle is one of our favorite date night spots; and we've come to expect a level of top notch service, so this was disappointing.

We had a date night and were able to get a table upstairs. There were others in the room but it was still private enough and not noisy at all. The food was great as usual!

An upscale restaurant that graciously catered to our vegan needs and helped to make a birthday dinner truly memorable. The food was interesting, beautiful and delicious. Our waitress, Erika, was very knowledgeable, attentive, and friendly. Our rating is 10/10.

The fillet appeared tough because it was hard to cut and the fillet was not quite the quality it had been in the past. Provide a very sharp steak knife.

This was a dinner to celebrate a wedding. There were six of us and they seated us immediately. Jonas, our waiter, talked us through the drinks, appetizers, entree and dessert menu. We had never been there so we had some questions.

Drinks: The Strawberry Springtime was good but a tad strong. The Old Fashioned was great, tasty! They also have a good selection of beers and wine. They also gave the bride and groom complimentary champagne.

Appetizers: We had the meat and cheese charcuterie board and the avocado fried green tomatoes. So yummy!

Entrees: We had the beef fillet, chicken pasta and the crab cakes. Everything was prepared, as asked for. The flavors were terrific. If interested, they did have specials that were not on the menu so there was a lot to choose from.

Desserts: We had the chocolate pound cake, creme brûlée, and the rosemary creme tart. The chocolate pound cake tasted good but it was a tad hard/frozen. The creme brûlée was so yummy! The tart was made well and flaky but I’m not a fan of rosemary. To me it’s like eating spicy perfume.

Overall, everything was great and I’d definitely go again. I’d definitely ask for Jonas again.

First time visit, we enjoyed the lobster bisque, fried green tomato appetizer, okra salad, ribeye entree and mussel appetizer. It was all delicious but the mussels were exceptional. However, our server, Amber, took our dining experience to 5 star status. She was friendly, knowledgeable, jovial and her wine recommendations were perfect.

The Bottle NEVER disappoints. We had dinner with two of our favorite couples for the first time since the pandemic began. The waiter was fantastic, the food worthy of all accolades we could throw at it, and the ambiance was exactly what we expect from an upscale restaurant. The Bottle is our go to place when we want fine dining!

We really loved the restaurant! Had great service great food just loved every bit of it except… We were a party of eight that was put into a room upstairs with another party of eight. The noise level was just too much and the spacing was less than desirable between the tables. Otherwise it would’ve been five star plus!

Its was ok. The Bottle is known for hit or miss on food being AMAZING that night. It was just ok on this night.

Drink prices are excessive. I expect an upcharge for a nice place....but $15.00 for Bulleit on the rocks is silly.

We haven’t been in a long time after having several disappointing experiences for the tasting dinners where there were too many attendees which made the pairings and food arriving at different times and the food cold.
A friend gave us a gift card so we decided to give it a try .
The online reservation system through Open Table was efficient. We were greeted and seated promptly upon arriving .
Our server Zack greeted us and was very upbeat and remained so throughout the evening. We often find servers are less patient on major holidays because there are high expectations and volume . This was not the case with Zack. He offered suggestions and up-sales explaining every thing and dish thoroughly. He was attentive without being overbearing . A very excellent server.
We ordered the charcuterie, wedge salad and slaw . All were tasty and decent proportions .
The grouper and scallop dinner were well seasoned with complimentary and tasty sides. We ordered a rosemary Marscapone tart. The filling was lovely but the tart was so hard we couldn’t cut it.
We have had similar meals at other high end restaurants in the past two months and this meal was about 10% -15 % higher in price. It does have the most romantic/intimate ambiance so that is a plus. I know a lot of people take advantage of the reduced price gift cards at Costco and that would help get more for your money at this restaurant.
We would definitely eat here again soon. We forgot how good the food , service and atmosphere was here.

Very good server, filet entree was phenomenal. Only complaint was I felt like I had no privacy to talk with my company being so close to other tables with our seating. Other than that I enjoyed the experience very much.

The place is tiny and we were sat right next to another table of four instead of at the tables more distanced. We had to talk over their conversation to hear each other. Service was very slow. There was dust everywhere. Molding and photo frames on the wall were covered. My wine had floaters of dust after it was poured. Not sure if they were in the glass or fell from the wall. Food was very good but, for the price, not enough to overcome the rest. We won’t be back.
