The Bottle Ratings and Reviews
The bottle is a nice destination for special occasions. It's quiet enough to have a conversation with the people at your table. Service is attentive but we never feel hurried. Okra and heirloom tomato salad is a must. Fish, chicken mushroom pasta, and scallops were very good.
Great server and prompt service. Ambience was quiet, inviting white table cloth. Presentation was first class. Entre venison was exotic, but temp was below optimum. Pork chop was gorgeous to look at, but carried significant hidden fat. Side item veggies excellent. Key Lime tart dessert was truly outstanding. After dinner coffee excellent. Server was consistently attentive and obviously well trained.
The service was good and the food came to the table quickly but I was disappointed in the food...... when you spend $49.00 on a steak you expect it to pretty damn good....... it was cooked well but had no flavor...... so much so I only ate half of it. My wife on the other hand enjoyed her steak. The bread pudding was dry and it was a tiny portion...... a really tiny portion considering what it cost. It was our anniversary dinner and I can't see going back for future special occasions.
IMO the best white tablecloth option in Huntsville. The service is impeccable with great attention to detail. Chef Andy has a real creative take on local and regional foods - never had a bad entire there. He is in the dining room frequently delivering the occasional dish and checking on patrons and staff - a nice touch that keeps everyone focused on quality of food and experience. The wait staff is superior, but for service with a touch, recommendations, pairings, and making every visit a positive experience, Scott is the best in Huntsville - you'll be happy you were seated in his area.
We chose The Bottle for a birthday dinner and were unfortunately disappointed. We had been told that it wasn't worth it prior to our visit, but we wanted to try it due to the good reviews. The food and drinks were overpriced for what they were. The grouper is definitely not blackened, and we went to another restaurant the following night that had an incredible blackened grouper for a third of the cost. The waiter was great, but the food/drinks/experience weren't worth the cost of our bill. There are several better restaurant options in the Huntsville/Madison area that cost the same or much less.
As you can see from above review ratings, everything was outstanding except for service. It was disappointing. Waiter was helpful at beginning but never returned after food was served. We were never asked if we needed anything, - I was in need of a knife -if we liked our food, or if we wanted dessert. We had to ask for a dessert menu! Then we had an additional wait before we could get our check.
This was a spur of the moment decision for our anniversary. Got our reservation and showed up on time - lovely table location at the ready. The menu offered wonderful and varied appetizers, salads and main courses. We settled on the tuna appetizer to share - excellent presentation, quality and flavor. We each had the scallops which were prepared perfectly - with accompanying mushrooms and cous cous. We finished with the bread pudding - also great. The bottle is an excellent restaurant in our area - Chef Andy, Scott - our waiter - everyone made this a memorable evening
Mom and I went to celebrate my Dad's birthday at the Bottle last week. (He passed away late last year.) We both got the scallops, since that was his favorite meal. They were perfectly prepared, and our server was very helpful with alternate selections for side dishes. They did not know that we were there for a special occasion, so it would have been easy for us to be overlooked, but our every need was attended to. Our wine was wonderful, as was the food. Overall a wonderful experience, even for a somewhat sad occasion.
I took my wife for her birthday. The Bottle was touted as the best in fine dining for Huntsville. Food fine, service fine but after 8PM a table of five was ushered in and they weren't dressed appropriately. They were loud, rude, used offensive language and were rude to the staff. When I went to find a manager I was told they didn't have one on duty. I asked about a dress code and told there wasn't one. So we just left.
It was a two and a half star experience but not the best in Huntsville fine dining. Apparently you can enter dressed however you want and managers aren't available for issues. I emailed The Bottle's managers from a business card I was handed and haven't gotten a response. Apparently they don't have email either.
Our evening was great from start to finish. Appetizers of oysters and crab cakes were delicious as was the filet. Homemade ice cream was the perfect ending to a wonderful meal. Our server, Sierra, was excellent, personable and took great care of us! Love this place!
We were seated immediately. Booth would have been preferred, but we were not asked. Service by Cary was excellent. He was very attentive and had a very good knowledge of the wine list. His suggestions were right on point.
Mix up on the salad order, but it did not affect the rest of the meal. From appetizer, to salad to main course, the meal was very good.
I was in Huntsville on business and needed a nice place to take some business associates and happened on The Bottle. I found it to be exquisite! The food and service was great, the parking was easy and I will definitely be back. Highly recommended.
Was in town for work but dining alone. My host recommended The Bottle. Everything was spot on. Not outrageously unique but everything was wonderful. The noise level was good which I especially appreciated since i was dining alone and reading. Conversations around me weren't overbearing. Will definitely visit again when I'm in town.
Very nice date restaurant. Expensive I thought $32 was high for the scallops but the food and wine were very good. Dessert portion small on bread pudding. I'd go back for special occasions. We spent about $175 for two. Salad and appetizer were excellent.
My wife and I thought the food was excellent. The owner also brought out his special jambalaya that he made for a local charity. The shrimp my wife had was very tasty and my filet mignonette was cooked to perfection. I would definitely recommend this dining establishment for a special occasion.
