Bottle + Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
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
We had a nice time at Bottle and Kitchen. We made reservations for the dining room, but there was a high school reunion, so we ate in the bar. This was fine. We had very good service, and we were able to chat with our server to find out about the Portland area, and what to do. while we were visiting.
This is at a hotel so beware you will have to valet your car. Service was good due to the awesome bartender we had who was excellent at making drinks. With that said the reason for 3 stars was due to the hour we arrived whereas happy hour and dinner are an hour apart and lunch ends when happy hour starts. So we had the happy hour menu with only a couple things on it which where good but not sure why you would allow reservations for happy hour.
This place is a hotel restaurant and we were staying in the hotel so it was a logical place for breakfast on two of the three days. I do have a quibble with what they call chilaquiles is not what I have ever had so I was severely disappointed on that front. Had seen them on the web on their menu and love chilaquiles but these were like deconstructed. Came in parts. Sad.
Went back two days later and had the steak and eggs omelette and it was great. Coffee was mediocre the first day and had progressed to OK by Sunday. Place was empty both days. We would go back again, but only if we were staying in the hotel.
My friend and I went in to enjoy the Portland dining month menu. The first coarse, a caprese beet salad, tasted like canned beets. The second coarse, crab and lobster ravioli, was over spiced and served cold. The final coarse a tiramisu, tasted like it had been frozen all month as it was stale and flavourless. There was no one when we went on a Saturday night, and now I know why. The only positive of the night was the friendly server who suggested an excellent bottle of wine and was a delight the entire night.
We enjoyed the decor and the service was great but the food was up and down. The beet salad was tasty, the crab ravioli was good but a little cold and sadly the tiramisu in a cup had no coffee or cocoa flavors and the cake (not lady fingers) was dry. Overall we had a good time but an ok food experience will not bring us back.
I asked the waiter if they had a breakfast drink menu, mimosas specifically, he said yes and about 10 minutes later he brought me a mimosa. Thankfully that was what I actually wanted, but I never technically ordered it, I just asked if they had those options. This place feels new and like it's trying a bit too hard, but hasn't quite figured itself out yet. Also, my sandwich was supposed to have a runny egg, me and the waitress even joked about it, but then it came out completely cooked through. It was a real bummer. There are better & cheaper places in town, that I'd prefer to go to in the future.
My husband and I enjoyed a nice evening at Bottle + Kitchen. While we never expect a restaurant to make exceptions for folks with food sensitivities, we were a little disappointed that there were not more gluten friendly options for my husband. He's always able to find something when we eat out that works without any major substitutions or special preparations. That being said, our waiter was very gracious and helpful about answering our questions about the menu and we were able to make selections that ultimately worked for us. We'd probably return for cocktails or happy hour, but are unlikely to return for dinner.
Conducted an interview over lunch here this week. There was just one other person there when we came in (around noon) and just one other table joined us by the time we left. My food was fine (smoked tofu), my dining companion didn't really see anything calling out to him so had a burger. Although there were just a few customers, it took a remarkably long time to get our check picked up for payment.
There are plenty of other restaurants in the area. I chose Bottle & Kitchen because it was really close to my office. The one very good thing was that it was quiet for conducting an interview (due to so few diners).
The restaurant decor was very nice - and staff was very welcoming. Unfortunately, the food didn't live up to the packaging. Eggs Over-Medium were barely over easy, Toast was cold, Bacon was distinctly not crispy. Nothing was horrible - but nothing was delicious. Shari's would be a better bet for breakfast.
