The atmosphere was great. Food and drinks were VERY GOOD. Wait staff seemed a bit overwhelmed though and the kitchen wasn't a help to them. The table next to us got their salads and entrees at the same time and the server apologized. Our food was delivered in 2 parts; the pizza was delivered about 30 minutes BEFORE the 2 other entrees. Everything was supposed to be together.
We had reservations and had informed the restaurant that we would need to be out in an hour. We ended up having to ask our server to have 2 entrees boxed to go BEFORE they were brought to us. We even asked for and paid the check before we got those 2 entrees.
Overall experience was just OK.
Would be nice to have some more veggie options in the ‘entrée’ section of weekend Brunch menu
Good food. Fun menu. Really nice staff!
Great for meals or snacks. The tater tots with beans was not that good:( but everything else we’ve tried here has been good! Unique and good drinks.
Ordered Flat Iron Steak and Salmon. Meals took at least 35 min and when they finally arrived, steak was over cooked (well done when ordered medium) and cold. Waiter was very nice and offered to send back. Waiter brought back plate of sides and said steak would take 8 min. It was 15 minutes before the steak came back. Salmon was delicious.
The food was great........staff was great. A bit spendier then I wold have guessed.
Food was delicious. Salads were fresh and portions ample. Entree was large enough to split. Ordering and food delivery were timely. Our waiter was busy. Several tables were finishing at the same time and getting the bill and paying were rather lengthy .
Server was wonderful and the food was great. Hidden gem!
I hate to leave a negative review, but best I can do is so-so on this place. Very odd disjointed space with worn out seating that wasn’t very comfortable. Service was friendly but if our waitress could possibly smell more of fresh cigarette smoke I would be shocked. The big disappointment was that they didn’t tell us untill we ordered that their pizza oven had caught on fire and so they weren’t serving pizza— which makes up at least 40% of dinner options. Grilled ridiccio salad was drowned in mayo. Oysters were good. We really enjoyed sharing the Tinder (mai tai for two) but at $28 it was really on the spendy side.
Not sure what I’d do to make this place seem more on par with most other places in Portland but we really were surprised at how the evening went.
The Vegetarian Patty was very salty and that's the one thing i noticed atleast in both of my trips to the restaurant and this time it wasn't just one person, second person mentioned the same thing too.
This was my first time at Bottle + Kitchen and it is fast becoming one of my favorite places. The food is fabulous, the atmosphere is very comfortable and my date and I have already been back to see some excellent live music. It’s definitely going to be a regular go-to for us.
They are trying, but falling short. Some food items were ok, but some were awful (eg stuffed pork was soaked in a sauce with way too much vinegar, and pork itself was hard and tasteless). Decor was particularly odd - part of room had failed disco vibe and it opened up into another room with what looked like a cheep conference center decor. Waiter was trying hard, but he just couldn’t make up for the rest. I guess that’s why this was one of the only places with open tables on Valentine’s Day. I kind of feel bad for the place, but it needs a makeover and a new chef.
Good salads at a reasonable price and it is very quiet there and never busy!
Great meal and outstanding service! The atmosphere was pleasant and looks like they have some unique cocktails too!
Absolutely great food and amazing service. They honored happy hour on New Year’s Eve which deserves 6 stars out of 5!
We had a very distracted waiter. He took our order, then forgot about us until we got his attention. Nearly 40 minutes passed between the time he took our lunch order and when he delivered it. The meatball sandwich was cold and my order was incomplete.
Nice decorated restaurant in Rose Hotel. WaterFront view is good.
I recommend happy hour menu of both food and drink.
Wait time after ordering is a little bit long.
The restaurant was freezing. We had to keep our winter coats on through out the meal. The breakfast burger was NOT a hit with hard bagel and the bloody mary ketchup wasn’t good, plus it was messy and falling apart with every bite. Slow service and we had to ask for jam for the toast.
Service was not consistent. Soup for one person came out, then salads and appetizer later. One person had to wait for their entree. Just not timed well at all. Food was pretty average, not special as we expected from the advertisement.
We were in town and needed a place for a family get-together. Bottle+Kitchen was absolutely perfect. The food was terrific, the service great and it was quiet enough for great conversation. Highly recommend.
Average food - terrible service, the worst in the city
Came here for my birthday, food was mediocre for the price. Cake was horrible, obviously frozen. Server was confused and flustered. Wanted to like the experience, liked the weird decor, overall left unsatisfied.
Overall, a delightful experience and if it hadn't been for the large party sitting across from us, this would have been a stellar one. However, on a Friday evening, it's understandable.
We have been here a few times, and we have enjoyed it every time. The food is amazing. Something new on the menu each time.
Small menu. No flavor, poor service. We had four in our party, all ordered different items. Everyone agreed that the food was just okay, at best. Generally disappointed.
Took a co-worker for lunch. She absolutely loved her burger. My food was tasty as well. Happy hour looks like it would be fun. We'll be back.
Service was clumsy. I walked into the restaurant with a reservation (8:45 p.m.), and there was no hostess, no bartender, no employee of any sort within sight. I did a quick walk through the dining room--nobody there. If it weren't for other patrons, I would have thought that the restaurant was closed. This was very unwelcoming. After a 5-minute wait, somebody finally appeared just as I was about to leave.
I sat down and ordered a house salad and the ravioli dish. The ravioli came out first from somebody who did not take my order. I asked about the salad, and the server had no idea that I had ordered a salad. He came back about five minutes later with the salad. They pretty much screwed that up as badly as possible. No offer to take the ravioli back and keep it warm.
Now for the good part. Despite the awkward timing, all of the employees were very polite and friendly. My waitress recommended an Oregon Pinot Noir that I loved. The ravioli was incredibly good, great combination of tastes and textures, including pumpkin seeds in the dish. The salad was terrific, too. I really enjoyed the taste treat after a long travel day.
The food was terrible. The risotto was undercooked and lacked flavor. The jambalaya consisted of 2 pieces of chicken and sausage and 1 shrimp, overloaded with onion and a can of tomato sauce. Even the beer was bad. We didn't finish our meal or beer. The waitress forgot one of our appetizers and the table next to us as well. Overall big disappointment.
Juice tasted off/bad. Server didn't write down order and had to come back to verify - why not just write it down? Food was OK and priced in-line with the area. Quiet enough for a work meeting. Overall OK - nothing I'd seek out based on this visit.
Breakfast sandwich is not easy to eat. The egg was over easy and made it messy as well.
Great loved it good food and great service we will be back!
Great service and terrific food and presentation! Easter brunch for 12 and everything was perfect for all.
Fun atmosphere. We were with guests from Australia and Germany--and had a wonderful time. Excellent service.
It was "fine". Nothing particularly outstanding, but good quality food. Small menu selection was a little disappointing, but we were all still able to find something that each of us liked enough to order (table of 6). Nice fireplace to sit by. I would be more likely to meet there for a quiet Happy Hour than dinner again.
Absolutely amazing service - so patient with our large group of ten. The food was very good, and the spaces are so nicely laid out, with separate spaces containing several tables, that we didn't have to deal with the typical din of restaurants in a cavernous space. We could speak easily to each other, and didn't have to worry about disturbing other groups.
I went for breakfast with a friend who had eaten here previously and raved about their biscuit sandwich. When we received our food, the biscuit itself was tasty, and the bacon was real and well cooked, but the two eggs on each sandwich were overcooked. This left the sandwich very dry due to lack of yolk. We asked them to remake them. The second sandwiches were more runny-yolked but the biscuits were cool and the cheese on them was not melty- it had dried and it left hard patches on the underside of the biscuit. The potatoes on the side were undercooked.
My friend asked if there was a different cook and we were told that the previous cook's last day had been the day before. So, the cook was new- I understand it takes some time for new folks to get the hang of it, but I was extremely disappointed in the food.
Our server, who was very nice, seemed like he might have been new, because he seemed a little confused and forgot to do things like get us water or bring us forks when they brought our new food out to us. The mimosas were weak, and at $8 a pop, would have expected better.
A different server said that he didn't feel good about charging us for our food. When we said we understood but we had eaten it, he just let the matter drop. The truth of the matter is that, yes, I did eat it, but he should have insisted on reimbursing us (of course, I did not know if he knew about them having to remake it once already).
Perhaps dinner is better, maybe the food will improve once the cook gets more comfortable, and the ambiance is good (restaurant is very chic and cute). However the confused service and sub-par food leaves me saying that I would not recommend this place and I will not be going back.
The bison burger was a bit too salty due to the bacon but very moist (basically soggy on the bottom. It's ok place, not great, not terrible.
We were visiting pdx during the snow and ice storm but we had a great catch up with friends who braved the elements. We opted to eat in the bar and the bartender (apologies for not remembering his name) couldn't have been more helpful with suggestions and perfect service. Each entree was phenomenal; unique, but not fussy. Great, comfortable atmosphere too in the bar.
The wait staff was super attentive, I appreciate that. This was my third time making a reservation (and only the first time that said reservation was honored). The food was honestly mediocre. The main dishes were so overly salty that it was hard to actual finish. The chocolate cake dessert tasted store bought. I was overall unimpressed
I had a great time at bottle + kitchen! It was my gender reveal party & everyone was very accommodating . Thank you !
