The Bottle Ratings and Reviews
Visited The Bottle for Valentine's Day. Reservation was for 7PM. Couples that had reservations between 6PM & 6:30 PM were still waiting when we arrived. Waiting area was very small. Waitress was very nice. Ordered a Pork chop medium well and received it medium rare. Meal was replaced but was VERY bland. None of the food was flavorful. Wasted a glass of water cutting my meat because the table was so raggedy. Chef gave complimentary chocolate strawberries which were the best part of the meal other than the bread and herb butter which was also complimentary. Wouldn't go back.
We ate at The Bottle for an early Valentine' dinner. We were seated on the 2nd floor, pretty far away from the kitchen. Our waiter was good, but there were temperature issues with my food. The steak was warm, but the mashed potatoes were lukewarm at best, and the broccoli was flat out cold. The waiter offered to take it back to reheat, but we were so far away from the kitchen, I was afraid my husband would have already finished his meal before it came back, so I just ate it cold.
The service was outstanding and the food was good but when you are paying $150 for a meal I expect to it to be some of the best food I've ever had. As far as upscale restaurants in Huntsville I'd recommend 1892 East or Commerce Kitchen ahead of The Bottle.
My girlfriend and I decided to visit the bottle for our 5th year anniversary. To keep the review short and sweet, I'll just say it really wasn't anything super special. The pastrami cured tuna appetizer was phenomenal, and the chocolate caramel desert was also great. The main courses on the other hand were fairly average. I had veal chop, with cheese grits and asparagus. My girlfriend had the rack of lamb with mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts. It basically boiled down to everything on the entree menu consisting of a protein, a starch, and vegetables. I think for spending 150+ for drinks, apps, and 2 entrees there should be more variety in whats provided to you. It wasn't terrible, it wasn't amazing. Maybe I had it too talked up by others, but it just didn't do much for me (outside of the app and the desert)
This was our 3rd time going to The Bottle and we have never been disappointed. Definitely in our top 2 restaurants in Huntsville. Scott is an amazing server and he always makes us feel special. Thank you Chef Andy for bringing out our appetizers. We will be back soon!
great service, great food, very nice night! We sat at a table for two with a street view.
Nice for conversation and scenery. My wife started with the Shrimp Martini that had 6 or so very large shrimp with an avocado salsa sauce. It was incredible. Next we had the fried okra and tomato salad. Interesting salad concept but it worked like it was meant to be. The Okra was sliced lengthwise and fried, the heirloom tomatoes were sliced in half and placed over lettuce. The salad was sprinkled with balsamic vinaigrette. The next course was a grilled pork chop on cheese grits and summer vegetables for my wife and I had the rack of lamb. Both dishes were large portions and were cooked to perfection. Could not have asked for any better main dishes. We closed the night off with the chocolate dome. White Chocolate cake resting in caramel and then a hot chocolate sauce poured over it. Great ending to a wonderful meal.
First trip to the Bottle. We've wanted to go for awhile, but finally made time. We were seated quickly, and our drink orders were prompt. Both meals were delicious. I got the scallops and they let me sub the parm grits. Wife got the filet and it was cooked perfectly. We'll definitely be back.
Wonderful evening. Server was knowledgeable, not overly present. Prices too high for the food, seriously, but when combined with the ambience, it was fine. I had the New York...very large, perfectly cooked. Mashed potatoes were just mashed potatoes. My wife had the scallops, which were well prepared but for whatever reason tasted noticeably salty. Wine list is robust enough to suit most tastes. This was our first visit and it will stay on our list but we hope the next visit is a little better.
My husband and I celebrated our 38th Anniversary at the Bottle, we had the Lamb, and the chef did an amazing job with our meal. Poshan was our waiter, he was so very nice and very knowledgeable about the menu, if we asked him a question, he didn't just blurt out anything, if he didn't know the answer, he went and found us the answers. we really enjoyed our conversation with him and our night at the Bottle. We would definitely come back again.
Disappointed. Ambiance - Excellent. Service - Excellent. Appetizers/salad - excellent. House Mae Old Fashioned - excellent. Main Course, Mediocre at best. Scallops cooked nicely but served with a glob of cous-cous and too much over cooked asparagus thrown on top to camouflage the mound of course-cous. Chicken over cooked and dried out spread on top of too muc pasta. Terrible looking presentation. We expected a lot better for the price.
I took my wife here for her Birthday and she loved it. She had the Duck which was awesome and I had the lamb which was great. We had a nice bottle of Charles Krug which made the meal over the top. Will be back soon. I found a great place my wife loves. Thanks to the chef whom came out and checked on our meal and even topped off our wine glass.
Food was great. Meals had outstanding flavor and creative pairings. Service was very good. Our table was towards the back and our waitress turned down the overhead music for us. Chef was courteous and proud in his menu. Dessert was amazing. Definitely worth the experience.
sat looking at the restrooms and the hall to the kitchen.
Every wait staff had to come right by us.
I ordered Veal that was tough and fatty.
Didn't know that was possible.
Wife ordered pork chops. Pretty tough also. Side item was not what she ordered.
Waiter said we had the wrong menu.
My husband and I went on New Years Eve and it was very busy. Our waiter offered us dessert menus before our entrees arrived and seemed just a bit flighty - every table around us was given vouchers for champagne at the adjoining property but he didn't even offer to us. Food was very good though my filet came out rare, not the medium I had requested. We'll go back on a quieter night.
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and service. The only thing I didn't understand is that there were only two of us and we were sat at a table for four. When we arrived at 5, there were two tables available for two at the window (which I had requested ) and we were sat at a table for 4 anyway. A waste of space to me and it looks like my request could have been accommodated. We made the most of it though and enjoyed our meal and time together.
We've been to The Bottle a few times over the past months and have never been disappointed with the quality and innovation of the choices of meals for dinner. This visit was another great experience! The oysters were excellent and the New Zealand venison was prepared in a unique style which was so tasty. This was our first visit with a younger child (8 years old) which I wouldn't recommend simply because the food is built for a more mature palate. I continue to believe this is one of the best places to dine in the Huntsville area and will be back!
The $80 32-oz. Cowboy Ribeye is the best steak in Huntsville (by far) and among the best I've had in the U.S. It's even ahead of places like Keen's, Sparks, and Minetta Tavern in NYC, and it beats any Vegas steak I've had (Craftsteak and Del Frisco's being my two most recent).
A word of warning: get the sauce (and butter) on the side. The sauces at The Bottle frankly ruin the high-quality meats with harsh flavors and too much salt. The sides are boring. Very good service.
We went to the Bottle for my birthday. Having been there before, we were pleased to be able to get reservations relatively close to Christmas. The food was, as expected, excellent; my wife had the pan seared scallops, I had the pan fried grouper with crawfish Etoufe. Both were prepared perfectly.
We don't go out frequently, so we try to pick a restaurant that is special. The Bottle fits that category well. Valet parking is almost a must, but that was also seamless. All in all, a wonderful experience.
I have lived in Huntsville for two years and this is my first time at The Bottle. The atmosphere is great for a date night or out with friends.
I had the pork chop, which is locally sourced in Athens, Alabama. It was very good. I usually get beef but I would over the pork chop again. Overall, the wine, appetizer (cheese plate) and meal did not disappoint.
The service was great as well. Our waiter Scott was attentive and gave great recommendations for wine.
I will definitely go back and would recommend to friends.
We Waited 15 minutes for a waiter to come to table. We had to go find someone to wait on us.
Two out of four plates were very good. The pork chops were not grilled. They were covered in a white gravy that disguised the look of the meat. They were tough. There was barely any grits on the plate and six small cubes of vegtables mixed into the gravy. It looked like a dish out of a low end southern restaurant.
For the price we paid, the service and the food level was unexceptable. We have been three times before and everything was excellent. We will give it one more shot and then we will find another place to celebrate special occasions.
Food was great little on expensive side. We wanted glass of champagne to celebrate our anniversary but they did not sell by glass. Our waitress was outstanding & she checked with bartender about individual bottles which they had & we decided to have. We should have asked how much they were because when we got the bill they were $25 each!! Wow!
