So disappointed!!! Went on open table to make a reservation, saw the menu but prices do not reflect what was on the menu!! Wine list is so off it says $40 for bottle of red wine on app and at restaurant it’s $60 big difference!!! So not worth

We had dined at Bottega before the lockdown and decided to go back and celebrate our anniversary. It wasn't as memorable as the first time but this is understandable given that everything was just reopening. Would definite go again. My only criticism is there was too much sauce on the red snapper. Why restaurants insist on drowning foods in sauces is a mystery.

First time at Bottega - had a great Mother’s Day dinner! Service was excellent, food was delicious, cocktails were strong (but I’m not complaining about that!).
Definitely going again!

Food (salmon and snapper) was good but lukewarm. Service was a constant push from the minute we sat down. Annoying and made the night far less enjoyable. Jean Claude 2 next door can also be pushy on the service but food there is exceptional. I will not return.

It was ok.. wonderful to see our friends, pleasant surroundings, but few things we asked for they didn’t have, like a bloody-Mary.. or a high-chair or booster for a toddler.. we were there for family brunch and we told them when we made the reservation. So maybe because of the pandemic they are not up to speed yet.. food was good, worth a second visit 👍👍

This restaurant never disappoints. The food is always good, as is the ambiance and service. They have outdoor space on Second Avenue, which can be a little noisy - but you can still easily have a conversation. Indoors is calm and relaxing with plenty of space between the tables. They have the same owner as Barbaresco on Lexington Avenue, which is also a great neighborhood place.

Tried veal dish instead of my usual salmon and it was delicious. Outside seating is comfortable and safe and have dined several times over last year so chose for my Special birthday dinner.
Would have been appreciated had management noticed on my reservation.
