Without a doubt my favorite high-end restaurant in town. Andy is the bomb. Ambience is perfect. Food is amazing. And Charles behind the bar is a magician

Excellent food, well prepared and service was very good. The desert was very small for the price. Need to change that in future for me to purchase any longer. Over all a great experience. Will be back, to see if you lower your prices on desert. Thank you for having a fine restaurant.

Ordered the redfish and 20 minutes after ordering they came and told me they were out. Takes way to long to get your food.

The steak was tender and delicious. The Sea Scallops were delicious but were terribly gritty which transferred to the couscous and asparagus. Another one in my party had the pork tenderloin which they said was delicious. the greatest disappointment was the desserts. This restaurant is known for the chocolate bomb which they decided to take off the menu for this "season" and the desserts they offered were low value offerings

We love The Bottle. We decided to go there for our 28th anniversary and we were very happy with our decision.
The food is always great with a nice variety of entrees available. You could make a meal from their wonderful appetizer menu as well.
Our server, Nichol(e), was wonderful. She helped us make some key choices and she was spot on with all her recommendations. We love how the staff all work together for a seamless dining experience for the guests.

Great place for a great date. The price is a little high but I expect to pay more for the great experience and inflation. In all our meal me and the wife spent $123.00 on our food. We ate the fried green tomatoes, bread, tuna for her, the stake fillet for me, wilted salad for her, fried okra salad for me, and iced tea to drink. The parking is limited down town so arrive early they do valet park I didn't use it. I really enjoyed this restaurant and I feel like more people would like it if they try it at least once. The waiter Michael was great he answered our questions and was johnny on the spot never ran out of drink or didn't have to ask for anything we needed.

So disappointing. It was a special occasion, birthday and I requested a private table for two well in advance. Upon arriving we were seated in the bar and no one approached us after more than five minutes. I approach the desk and asked to be seated in the dining room instead , that I had requested a private table. We were then seated in the middle of the room the only table in the middle of the room!
Our server was apparently also managing the check-in desk. No explanation of the menu no questions, Just what would you like to order. Waited over 30 minutes for the food, my partners pork was red well undercooked. When he brought it to the servers attention the only option given was to re-cook his plate never an offer for a new entrée different entrée etc. No manager nor anyone approached us with an apology or options. I would not recommend this restaurant and will never go back.
We were dressed for the occasion while others coming in wore shorts and sneakers. For the prices on the menu and for an upscale restaurant I would expect better service and attention.

Pan seared yellowfin tuna was perfect; however, my friend suffered through the chicken pasta. That was unfortunate. The staff and atmosphere was perfect. I also appreciate the patience of the team holding my reservation when I mistakenly went to the wrong restaurant and arrived thirty minutes late. Nice night!!

The staff was very nice and the service was good but the food was very bland. The mussells and broth lacked flavor, the crabcake had too much filler, the grouper was smothered in sauce and not seasoned well, the risotto was not cooked properly and also lacked flavor. The filet was just ok. The scallops were the best dish we had.

The bottle is a lovely place to dine. My wife and I have been many times. Always a 5-star experience, only minor complaint this time was being seated next to the bar where some loud, inebriated patrons were also seated. This was our first time in the 'front' area with the bar. I think I would ask to be seated elsewhere next time we dine there.

This was my first time visiting The Bottle. I arrived shortly after the restaurant opened and I was seated quickly, ordered quickly, and started eating in no time flat. The steak was outstanding. In fact, the entire meal was outstanding. The service Zach provided was great and just made the dinner that much better. I will definitely make The Bottle a recurring visit on my local dining itinerary.

The server was fine...did not offer any assistance with the menu or make recommendations. My ribeye steak was over cooked and had a gravy that ruined the meat. Vegetables were over cooked and soggy. The panna cotta was horrible and no where near the actual desert. For a $200 dollar tab it was not worth it. Will not go back or recommend,

Chef is awesome. The rabbit special I had is second to none. Big fan of game and he knocked t out of the park.

Our waiter Zac was training Michael and it was very professionally done.

Looking forward to my return

There were three of us who had not met for over a year so we had a leisurely dinner. Our server was very attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. Our menu selections were outstanding. Two of us had grouper and one pork. Each one of us was very happy with our selections. The Bottle continues to be a top notch restaurant.

We ordered the fried green tomatoes/avocado apetitizer. It was delicious. The ambiance, greeters, and other wait staff was extremely nice, but the young lady that served us was somewhat condescending. My husband asked for vegatarian pasta without mushrooms. However, his dish was delivered with mushrooms in it. We would definitely recommend the restaurant but would adamantly request another server if/when we go back.

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.
