Bottega Napa Valley Ratings and Reviews

My husband and I went here for our first wedding anniversary last night. This place is just fantastic--incredible food, and excellent service. I'm so happy we chose Botegga to celebrate our special day. We will definitely be coming back. Make sure you get the short ribs and the Italian doughnuts!

Overall the meal was incredible. Everything from the appetizers to the dessert. We started with the Octopus and Burrata and both were excellent. We then ordered what might be the best Gnocchi I have ever had and the Short Ribs. Then finished with excellent chocolate dessert.
For me the Food was incredible, the pricing was reasonable. I do have 2 complaints. The service was pretty poor on this occasion, but it could have been an off night for the server and they were packed. Took at least 15-20 minutes to get our drinks after ordering then everything else just took forever. Second the corkage fee is $30 a bottle. This might be the highest in Napa and a little bit insulting in comparison to others who embrace the fact we are in a wine heaven.

Everything was excellent from beginning to end. The service- from checking in for our reservation to the maitre'd coming by after our meal to see how whether we were happy with our meal and experience was terrific. The food was excellent- so much so that we tried to go back for lunch the next day only to find out that they were closed on Mondays. We'll just have to make another trip of it!

We were very disappointed. We called ahead to ask for a vegan option for dinner. When we arrived the server's first greeting was, "so you're the vegans?' No special food options were offered and we basically felt neglected throughout the meal. Definitely would not return!

Great food as usual. Incredibly slow delivery of food. Our server ignored us for over an hour. The slow kitchen was not his fault, but failing to apologize or even check-in was. Glad things are so good and everyone was so busy on a Sunday night that they do not need to care.

Yountville is blessed with this gem. Almost everything was perfect. Wine selection, food and service was spectacular, especially for a Sunday lunch.
Part of why I am so positive about Bottega is how things that were not perfect were handled...perfectly. The sound system was turned too high. We realized people at tables next to us were shouting over the music. We made a soft suggestion to our server to consider the volume level. Our waiter smiled and, when he next appeared, we mentioned that the sound level was much better. Then, he quietly mentioned to the table next to us that he apologized for the loud music and mentioned it had been turned down. At that point, their volume subsided.
It is easy to love a perfect experience. But smooth and elegant issue solving deserves the highest rating. Set your expectations high and prepare to have them exceeded.

Bottega is an excellent choice for lunch or dinner. In good weather the covered outdoor seating can be one of the sublime experiences for a lunch turned near perfection. The duck confit on our menu came near perfection and the fish of the day enjoyed by my wife seemed done and presented with precision and taste. Overall, an fine experience.

This was my second time dining at Bottega Napa Valley and I completely enjoyed it. The staff is professional, friendly, & knowledgeable. The food is creative and delicious. Ambiance is sophisticated but not stuffy. Would definitely recommend and revisit!

It is always a treat to enjoy a meal at Bottega. We shared all plates we ordered and each was a gem. We sat inside as opposed to the covered patio due to the rain, and really enjoyed the cozy dinning area. Our server was friendly and attentive. We will be back.

The food is hit and miss on different items. The pork belly appetizer with egg was phenomenal, and something to remember, but the rest of our meal was underwhelming. They have 1-2 good desert items as well (warm chocolate cookies and orange marmalade was good). Service was hurried and inadequate, mainly because of the fact that the server was covering large number of tables.

Custom curated by our server and chef -- we let them guide the incredible meal. Our server, Murph, was one of the best servers I've ever had-- his knowledge of food, wine and culture will astound you! The chef was masterful with extraordinary ingredients. An amazing evening!

Wonderful evening at Bottega! Service was fabulous and the management made an exception for us and our large group which made the evening perfect! Food was amazing, polenta and short ribs to die for. 2nd time I have been there and I would go back again!

I have been to Bottega multiple time over the past 6 years, but I was not happy with my overall experience this time. We had issues with our initial server but the manager stepped in before we completely stepped out of the restaurant. He saved us from leaving and the new server we were provided was very delightful. Even with that initial problem, I wasn't impressed with the food...seemed lacking in both flavor and quality. So, not sure what is going on.

Our waiter was a bit slow in taking our order. Our reservation was at 8 pm since I couldn't get an earlier time. We waited at least 20 minutes to place our order for 6 people. We had guests visiting from Lebanon and they were starving. Overall, the food was delicious and we love coming to Bottega.
