Took the server a while to get to us, the tables were seated so closely to the other ones we could literally hear the other persons conversations, which forced us to whisper for privacy. The food was great though. Will definitely return and will perhaps request a table that’s secluded.

We enjoyed the wine and fish. I liked the bisque. Absent waiter...didn't refill wine glasses or come back to table. The woman who greeted us was rude. I love Scott and will not fail to ask for him if we go back. Very disappointing...

Fantastic upscale dinning! Been going there with my wife for Valentine's Day twice now and it is worth every cent. As with any restaurant during a big holiday, expect a wait if you don't have a reservation. Would completely recommend for any special occasion.

Waiter was totally unattentive and would disappear for long periods of time. Seated next to a kitchen wall that noisily vibrated. Avg food. Not worth $170 for 2 people.

The rack of lamb was amazing. My wife had the grouper which she liked but had food envy over the lamb. The meal was expensive but worth it. Great staff who were responsive, knowledgable about the menu, and wine list. Overall we had a great meal!

This was our first time to eat at The Bottle. The food was fabulous and our server was very attentive. The only complaint I have is where we were seated. We were wanting a romantic dinner, but were seated towards the back where the kitchen area is and there were servers constantly coming and going. It was quite noisy and hard to create the intimate conversation we were wanting. We’d go again, but request to be seated somewhere else.

The Bottle continues to deliver great service and great food. We are always satisfied with the range of different entre choices and how thoughtful the preparation is. Lamb Chops and Scallops this time were both superb. Crab cake appetizer was really excellent. We look forward to the next visit!

Outstanding, as always! We are regulars at The Bottle, typically as a party of two, but often as part of a party of up to 16, and have never been disappointed. The filet was perfectly prepared and melted in our mouths. The mashed potatoes were perfect, and retained the taste of fresh potatoes; something you don't often find these days. The broccolini was delicious, and the creme brulee was perfect. Service was outstanding. Ambiance was excellent. We'll be back!
