The Bottle Ratings and Reviews

Food was excellent! The server made good recommendations. The chef came out and spoke with us giving recommendations as well. Had crab cake, a cabbage salad, duck with mole sauce, and a creme brûlée. Using OpenTable is the best way for quick (within the day) and small reservations; however, the staff is the best way to reserve for large parties.

Made reservation online, we were on time and were seated immediately. Our waiter Scott, a long time high end server for years, was great. Every course was timely and prepared perfectly by Chef Andy who brings out your entrée and chats a bit. Great wine selection and the desserts were so light and refreshing.

Salads were very good. My veal chop was cooked per my request (medium rare) and the mushroom sauce with it was very good, but my wife's and a friend's grouper were over cooked and on the salty side. Decent wine list. Service was a bit uneven.

The food was excellent, the Chef came to our table multiple times to check on us and Thank us for visiting and even stood and shook our hand on the way out. He was such a down to earth person and so tentative to us. He even sent us a dessert.

For the moment, The Bottle is the best restaurant in Huntsville. The chef changes the menu regularly, uses local produce whenever possible, and is not afraid to try new cooking techniques. The wine list is small but impressive and sufficient.

Great food. I knocked it a bit because 1) they got my wife's order wrong; 2) our table wobbled (they fixed it but cmon...); 3) I put it was our anniversary but they said nothing to us. That last might seem minor but they went to the trouble to call me and verify we were coming so they must've chosen not to read that. The food was simply awesome though, and for that reason alone we will return. Also our waitress was great,!even though she got the wife's order wrong.
Have been in Huntsville for 18 years and our first trip here to the Bottle. Really sad it took us so long to try it. Everything was perfect. Food, service and a Chef that was hands on with all the customers delivering extras throughout the 2+ hours we were there. Definitely going back and recommending to our friends.
Mother's Day Brunch...Winner!
We enjoyed a wonderful Mother's Day brunch. Our reservation was early in the day and allowed us to eat leisurely and have great discussions with our server who was awesome. The food was excellent as usual. We will always consider The Bottle for a special event meal.
I brought my folks here when they were in town visiting . We had the thai blue crab salad, which was new to the menu for this night. Everyone agreed it had great flavor and balance. My parents, self proclaimed foodies with extremely critical palettes, loved everything (we got the Filet, Scallops, Chicken Pasta, and Scamp (seasonal fish dish of the night)). Thanks Chef Andy!
The Bottle never disappoints on quality.
This was our sixth trip to The Bottle and it remains our favorite Huntsville restaurant. They have an extensive wine list but we tend to take advantage of the corking fee and bring our own. We both ordered the veal chop, our favorite, and the chef only had one remaining so he personally came out and explained before taking our alternate order. He even offered us complimentary dessert and coffee for the trouble. The food came out reasonably quickly and was delicious as always. Our server was new to the area, but obviously not new to taking care of diners. Everything was perfect, especially the fried okra and heirloom salad, crab cake, and veal chop. They really got the lighting, atmosphere, and menu right when the Bottle was created. Bravo!
Good, but not excellent
When you go out to a restaurant and spend a good amount of money, you expect the food to be really amazing. It was good, but it wasn't excellent. My husband had the snapper and I had the filet mignon. My steak was much better than his fish, but was served with mashed potato and steamed broccoli, neither of which were prepared in a special manner. We selected the crab cake for our appetizer, which was good, and had the triple chocolate desert, which was ok. The chocolate aspects were tasty, but for some reason they tossed plain popcorn on top which did not remotely fit the atmosphere or meal. It was like an after thought. "I know, toss some popcorn on top!". We ate around it. Again, the food was good, but it wasn't the level of Connors or even Grill 29.

This is a very, very good restaurant experience. We had six for a business dinner. So lots of food selections, yet everything came out on time and tasted great. One colleague is a vegan and she had a delightful and tasty meal also. The chef stopped by and actually talked with us, not just a quick "drive by" greeting. Pretty rooms, but not opulent. Thus while the menu is pricey, you don't have to bust your budget.

I had the duck breast and duck sausage, while my wife had the prime rib. The duck breast was a bit gamey, but that is to be expected. The sausage was divine! So tender and juicy!
My wife's prime rib was unparalleled. It melted in one's mouth like butter.
The experience was pricey compared to our typical outing, but you certainly get what you pay for. We shall return!
