    After having reservations for two weeks for my wife and I to celebrate our 17th anniversary we were shoved upstairs in what looks like a bedroom with tables. To no fault of the restaurant there was a guest being loud and obnoxious swearing every other word. (Prices are approximate)We ordered 4 glasses of wine which were fine $50, 6 oysters for $24 raw on the half shell which were still attached to the shell so my wife and to prep our oysters for us. I got the salmon which was good, my wife got the trout which was a 6/10 veggies were under cooked. Service was 3/10.

    Was a little nervous at first as the room we were sat in was very warm but staff QUICKLY adjusted the thermostat to our preference! Top notch service and food from drinks, apps, and entrees! Their new rose cocktail was devine, the quail was crispy and so tasty and the salmon/ scallops were some of the best I’ve ever had. My dad and fiancé ordered the duck and the filet and we’re both very impressed!! They did run out of the crème brûlée but brought us out free ice cream to apologize, not what we wanted but a nice gesture!! We will definitely be back!

    Overall, the setting was nice, but the food was mediocre at best. My girlfriend, who is pregnant, ordered lamb, which needed to be cooked well-done, was brought medium-rare lamb after we sat waiting an hour.

    My husband and I have been to The Bottle several times for our anniversary. The food is always wonderful and the service is great. But tonight the service was a little slower than usual, but still very good.

    We were seated in one of the upstairs rooms, which was great for our Anniversary dinner. The food was exceptional as always. The only critique of the evening is that after we ordered our entrees, the server asked if we would like soup or salad. The implication was that these would be included with the meal, but adding the soups was $10 each. This is not a deal-breaker here, but I am including in the review in case future customers find themselves in this situation. We will be back. Thank you.

    The food was very good overall. My wife and I split the crab cake appetizer, which was excellent! It had good sized chunks of crab meat, just enough curry to give it a little heat, a crunchy slaw on top to brighten the dish, and an enjoyable texture with a slightly crispy crust - not dry or soggy, just right! We both ordered the sea scallops for our main course, which came with couscous, and asparagus. The serving size was perfect. The only reasons this dish was not excellent (just our opinion) was it was just a little bit on the salty side, the cracked peppercorns on the outside were sometimes a little potent, which overpowered the flavor of the scallop and gave a textural feeling of sand (even though there was NO sand), and they could have been seared a little more on the outside. The service was outstanding!

    Since we were in town, we decided to celebrate an early birthday with the “Live Ling and Prosper” Mediterranean Wine dinner. It was so fabulous. (I could have enjoyed bigger pours of the wines at maybe 2 oz each, but they were paired beautifully with the food.) The food courses were specialties from different countries, thoughtfully created and beautifully presented. The wine, the food and the service were just superb. This wine dinner was the best we have had in a long time. Will we drive another 4 hours to go to another one. Most definitely!!

    We went for our anniversary and our server was sweet about it. She did an awesome job overall, made good recommendations and was friendly. The food takes time and it’s worth the pace. (I could have don’t without all the dried parsley on the rim of the plate though, haha.)

    We were seated at a small table by the kitchen. There was loud music playing during our entire meal. My bench seat was most uncomfortable because of a broken spring. The meal: fried okra salad, excellent. Apple salad needed a goat cheese topping. Crab cakes needed crab. The oysters were small. The avocado and fried green tomatoes, excellent. I had the yellow fin tuna, Excellent. Chicken, okay? The dessert menue was disappointing. Nothing to suggest.

    Made a reservation for New Years. Per the restaurant there was an issue with Open Table which resulted in over booking. They did a good job fitting everyone in but those of us upstairs were cramped and the lights were glaring, not what one would expect for the price.

    Not what it used to be. You pay a lot of money and end up with what just feels like an average experience you have in any other ordinary Huntsville restaurant. Though the service is good, the food was more typical southern fare than anything else. The worst was that the duck special tasted unremarkable and was over cooked and tough. The venison dish was the same. My dining partner and I agreed that had we not known what we ordered, we might not have been able to tell what species our meat was. The wine selection is not at all what it used to be, and c’mon, cornbread rolls for the table? Not for $200. This is not the restaurant I dined in years ago and had an amazing meal at.

    I think this is the 8th year in a row for us at The Bottle for Christmas Eve. The food is always stellar. Service is awesome. They seated us upstairs which we enjoyed. It was nice and quiet. Dani was our waitress and she was very knowledgeable about the menu and made great suggestions. Best high end restaurant in Huntsville. Looking forward to next time!

    The food is amazing here. I think their seafood dishes are always interesting. I forgot the type of fish I had (I’d never heard of it) but it was spectacular. They have a great wine selection and they make a great Old Fashioned with an interesting ingredient that I’ve never had anywhere else. This place is a keeper.

    This was the first time my husband and I are at @ The Bottle and we will visit again. My husband had the Filet with roasted vegetables and mashed potatoes - steak cooked Med Rare. The steak was perfectly cooked (a rarity at most restaurants) and the sides were great. I had the Springer Mt Farms Chicken Pasta. The spaghetti was fresh and Al dente, the sauce, chicken and vegetables in the sauce flavorful. I'd order it again. Our drinks were good as well and our server top notch. My only complaint was the attitude of 2 of the 3 "hosts" @ the door. I was 10 minutes late in arriving due to looking for a parking spot and the rest of our party was caught in holiday traffic in downtown HSV. The hostess called asking if I "intended to make my 5 o'clock reservation" as I walked toward the restaurant and she sounded irritated. Then as I entered and apologized saying I had trouble finding a parking spot the young gentlemen standing @ the host station replied in an irritated tone, "We have valet parking." I replied, "It's my first time here. I didn't know." Other than that the evening was fantastic. Our waitress was esp. awesome, anticipating every need. I'd recommend this restaurant and chalk up the young people's attitudes to lack of customer service experience.

    We were seated upstairs in a small dining room which was actually very nice. The room was very quiet and we were able to have conversations. We have been to other restaurants where the noise level is so high that you can hardly have a conversation which is very disappointing. Ryan provided very attentive service and was on the top of his game. The corn muffins were a nice touch when many restaurants don't offer bread or even have it available. The steaks were perfectly cooked, the mussels were very good and the duck was well seasoned. They were out of scallops and the budino, but everyone enjoyed their meal. It was a very nice evening.

    Friendly staff. I am very much a fan of the restaurant. Food was slow and my dish was Luke warm on this particular occasion. Which was a bit disappointing. Food was still good. My wife’s dish was excellent and hot. The parade may have delayed our entrees. Owner came to greet us which made it very nice. They gave us their booth for our anniversary which made our evening very special. Highly recommend.
