We were promptly taken to our table after being greeted by friendly receptionist. The wait staff went to work immediately and the cocktails arrived quickly, followed by our appetizer, wine, main course, and dessert. The pace of the experience was perfect, never rushed. Our friendly waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and made an excellent wine recommendation. The food was excellent and met expectations based on previous experiences at The Bottle. My wife and I look forward to our next outing here.

This is the second time we have been to the Bottle, both times to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Compared to our first visit, the food was sub-par. Caesar salad was only OK - I've had better out of a "kit" from the grocery store. Soup was not good. It was a squash soup with some weird soy sauce glaze mixed in. The salty glaze just did not work. Our entrees were below expectations as well. The chick has a heavy grilled flavored, almost burned.

The Bottle is one of our favorite restaurants. We have never had a bad meal. We both had the grouper with Parmesan risotto. The tarter sauce was killer! I highly recommend.

Had a great table by the window. We went on a Tuesday nite and were glad that many of the tables were full.
Wait staff was attentive and on top of it.
Portions were generous, food very well prepared.
I didn’t do 5 stars because it was all very good but not outstanding.
We had reserved it as a birthday occasion. They acknowledged this but did nothing special, like a dessert.
That surprised me a little.

Another excellent night at the Bottle. Food and service were excellent. It was a very busy night for them and our experience was great. 4 in our party. We had the scallops, ribeye, filet and tuna. All with excellent sides. We will be back often

Food as usual was delicious, though I did not receive the meal I actually ordered. Two in our party had the tuna entree, one had the grouper, and I ordered the pork tenderloin, but ended up with the filet. Given everything going on with COVID I elected to accept the filet rather than make them throw out food and start over. Would recommend them all. Just suggest asking questions if you get a steak knife delivered - I did and that still wasn’t enough.

The food was delicious the night we were there. Crab cake was so tasty and the okra salad had a balsamic dressing that was perfect. Ribeye cooked to perfection. I love bread and the bread and herb butter was so good i asked for more.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary with an outstanding overall experience at The Bottle. We had a high top table in the window which was nice. The service was perfect, attentive but gave us time to take things at our pace, which we wanted to draw it out a bit. He did a great job allowing us space and timing our drinks and meal courses. Had some fabulous drinks, oysters and crab cakes for appetizers, then Tuna steak and Filet for main dish. Everything was excellent and cooked perfect. It was a perfect evening out, nice vibe and energy, but also quiet and romantic. The evening went exactly like we hoped. Thanks to the staff at The Bottle!
