I joined a friend for wine and charcuertie (Tagliere Salumi E Formaggio) last Wednesday. The prosciutto and garlic & truffle oil cheese was the best I've ever eaten anywhere (I'm still thinking about it!) Our server Heaven was just that. And the fantastic conversation with Manager Antonio made the evening all the more memorable. In addition to the great conversation, he told us about the great Marketplace "to go" items on offer, including Italian Chicken and Turkey burgers. This was my first time to Bottega but definitely not my last. Highly recommended.

Right from the second we stepped in the service was amazing! All the way through to when we left. I believe our waitress' name was Darian? Or a name along those lines but she was amazing, so nice and helpful. Along with the amazing service the food and drinks were also great. Would definitely recommend to others and will come back.

I had high expectations , but got very disappointed with the customer service and the wait time and the food(too salty, very bland and extremely overpriced). Other simpler restaurants have much better food .
Did not like it and left the place frustrated !

Worst experience at Bottega! I’ve been there numerous times with family/friends/clients and it’s been a go to. Saturday’s experience, I’m hoping, was just a blip on their radar. The food was awful - soggy and tasteless bruschetta. Their menu has been paired down significantly, probably due to Covid? The service was beyond horrible... we sat for over 25 minutes before someone offered us a drink and then waited another 10 minutes for them to arrive. The waitress - who turns out was also the Manager on duty that evening - was horrible and looked quite disheveled. We were hoping to order a couple bottles of wine and have a great meal but we decided to get the bill and go elsewhere that evening.

The Restaurant was nice and clean and a nice setting. But all of the food was quite average for the price, none of us left feeling very wowed or eager to come back. The drink selection was also a little below average. The service was great and the staff was super friendly but I probably won’t be jumping at the chance to return anytime soon, especially with all the other amazing restaurants on that street.

It was difficult to read the menu without my iPhone light. The Cozze were the worst I’ve ever had, the pasta was way to salty. The only thing they did right was my tiramisu. I was very disappointed with the restaurant. The price was high and not worth it!

Booked two weeks ahead but when my family got there, they told us we needed to be separated due to covid reasons. We understand the restrictions put in place for safe and healthy precautions but at least put in the effort to let us know in advance just so we can adjust or don’t expect too much so plans don’t get ruined. As for food, it was okay. The service was good too.

It's areal shame but something has certainly changed at this restaurant. For this last visit we were their for our 25th wedding anniversary. The restaurant knew this but when we arrived, although it was pretty much empty, we had to wait to get seated, wait to have menus brought to us. In the past, the service would of been quite different - especially if the restaurant knew it was a special occasion. We have been going to this restaurant since it opened, we have tried everything on the menu. This time around the caesar salad was very disappointing and the tenderloin entree was another disappointment. Based on this last visit, I don't think it would be a place I will be back to anytime soon.

I am not one to write a negative review pretty much ever, but We had a Poor experience from when we first walked in. It took almost ten minutes waiting at the door even with a reservation, and then another ten minutes to be greeted by our server. Our server was decent enough, but I felt very put off by her chest being in our faces from her attire (I would feel very awkward if I was dining with my father for example). My spouses chicken dish was then quite under cooked, to the point where he couldn’t eat it and was worried about getting sick after. We were offered a free dessert, but I feel like the least they could have done would have been to comp his less than half eaten meal. We will not be back and have shared our experience with our friends and family.

Lobster ravioli and other pasta dish (first on one the menu) my husband had were to salty. Also noise was way to loud after 9:30pm. Music was loud.

I found the restaurant was packed. No concern for social distancing. Customers were wandering around without masks on. I’ve been to several places to eat out in COvID and I’ve never felt more unsafe.

We came for lunch specifically to have lobster mac and cheese, because we’ve had it there a couple of times before and it was AMAZING... generous amount of large lobster pieces throughout with a nice little claw in top. This time, as hard as we searched through our mac and cheese, we could not find a hint of lobster. On top we found what looked like half of a large prawn. Left disappointed with no compelling reason to return. Thank you for the opportunity to provide feedback and best of luck to your restaurant!

We have eaten there before but the meal was spectacular. Best Caprezi salad even. I got lamb shanks which were two meaty shanks in a really tasty tomato sauce. My wife had tatagloni which was excellent.
Downsides. Level and selection of music was horrible.
Our table was less than six feet from the adjacent table. Patrons entered the room and table hopped without wearing masks.
