I really had to try this place with so many raving reviews. The atmosphere itself was an experience with the lively energy from all the people surrounded by so many beautiful desserts, delicately crafted food, and lovely decor. There was a 20-30 min wait to get seated but worth it. The lobster hash with fresh lobster on top of a bed of potatoes along with perfectly smooth eggs is a must try. Wonderful flavors!

Definitely a Downtown favorite! What's not to like. I love the ambiance, yes can be loud at times and always super busy, but in my opinion that's the draw, not to mention the food is yummy. I have had and enjoyed just about everything on their menu. I love the portabello fries, clam linguine, short rib, burrata & roasted vine tomatoes, I could go on and on. For dessert... Of course the macaroons! Who can resist those little treats of pure bliss. I love them all but the lavender is my favorite. I never pass up an opportunity to head over to Bottega.

I have wanted to try this place for so long but have never made the time to drive downtown for brunch. I don't think it's worth the hype- but the food is pretty good and I would be down to grab this once every couple of months. I found street parking a block away early Sunday morning and walked to the large, white facade and impressive glass windows. I was awed by the macaron trees and felt slightly underdressed wearing a v-neck and shorts on a hot summer weekend. Nevertheless, we were greeted kindly by the hostess and our server remembered my sister's name that was written in the guestbook. I got my bellini quickly, which was rather disappointing and small. It didn't taste very fresh. Maybe I just have bad luck with brunch drinks. The portobello fries came out next and they were quite good- fried with a delicately crispy skin but soft and savory on the inside. The flavor wore off after eating more and more of it though. The accompanying dipping sauce was great. I got the Farmer's breakfast which was not very balanced in terms of acidity. I feel like the vegetables and flavor didn't mix very well and the dish came out overall bland. Not recommended. On the other hand, my sister's lemon ricotta pancakes were great. The highlight was the thick homemade blueberry syrup- it crystallized after a while but was still so delicious. Overall I don't think the meal was worth it, but the ambiance was very nice and the service was great and I really enjoyed the setting in the middle of downtown.

Exceptional quality! The food was so good. I ordered the Lobster hash, and noticed they added one Brussels sprout that was filled with flavor. I like to cook from time to time, but never thought of something so subtle adding to the dish, just excellent! My girlfriend ordered the french toast, which was also made perfectly - soft with great taste! Attention to detail! The servers took down my last name, and then walked up to me after 10 minutes, even though there was several people waiting, they remembered who I was. We also used their free wi-fi, and received an email thanking us for our visit. I've never been to a restaurant that was so exceptional at little things. Definitely going back A+ in my book.

What can I possibly say that 3600 other reviewers haven't said??? Food is delishly outstanding and perfectly seasoned. Flavor combinations are unique and well balanced. Short ribs with grapefruit were amazing! I also digged the booming music and casual atmosphere.

One of the most beautiful spaces in the city bar none. Service is friendly and prompt. Hosts are uptight and dismissive but they do work in a hectic environment. The food is fresh and actually still hot when it makes it to the table. More so the pastries in the front of house are worth the visit alone!!! You cannot leave without something!

The deserts are divine! The food fresh and well prepared. The environment casual sheik. Come a little early, or a little late to avoid the crowds. Also great place to meet for breakfast. Don't forget the fresh squeezed orange juice.

WOW... super surprised how good the ratings are on this place. Either we went on a bad night, or these folks leaving reviews need to travel more and experience what a great restaurant should actually encompass (sorry, no offense folks... but seriously). First off... it was waaay too dark inside the resturaunt at night. Dim is ok for sure... but squinting to see your food is just not appetizing. Though this I could get over, if the pasta I ordered didn't come out cold twice. Yes, TWICE! Macaroons were weak in comparison to the one's we've had in the past. Too thin, dry and tasted like old gummy jam on the inside. It's kind of sad because the vibe of this spot has the potential to be amazing... they just need to tighten their standards a bit and reboot.
