We have never had a bad experience dining at botl. The service is always excellent, the food is delicious with clever and well executed variations on recognizable favorites. If you haven't tried it I would most certainly suggest you remedy that oversight as soon as possible. You will not be disappointed.

Our waitress was so delightful. I can’t remember her name but she had like the double buns with the cute curly hair around her face. She was so wonderful and the food was delicious. I highly recommend this place.

Four of us went Saturday evening. Kelly was a really good wait staff member. She was very friendly and on her game. I had their signature pasta that was delicious with the side salad. My husband had the lamb Ragu. Our friends got the pork sandwich and the fugettaboutit. We all enjoyed our meals. The only thing that I’d probably complain about is the bread was just so so. The drinks were really good and they had a lot of bourbons For the guys to try, and apparently the old-fashioned were to die for. I had the strawberry basil something drink, and it was really good. We will definitely go back. Since our friends paid for the dinner, I can’t comment on the value. But whatever it was, it was worth it.

My girlfriend and I had a terrific time catching up. Everything was great. But what I appreciated the most was our server, whose name I did not get, was very patient and accommodating. Our reservation was for 6 pm but my friend got lost via her GPS and did not arrive until 6:35 pm. I asked that our table remain reserved and I was accommodated. A customer actually directed my friend via my phone how to get from Freeport Street to Botl. Thank you very much.

This charming little place is going to be looking for more room soon. The staff, owner and chef all went out of their way to talk to us and tell us about the menu and BotL. We all enjoyed our meals.

Absolutely fantastic in almost every way. Great food, great drinks, reasonable prices. The only slight negative was that the music is pretty loud.

Botl never disappoints. Been there multiple times for drinks and dinner. If you've never been, you should go. And if you have, you should go back

We enjoyed the atmosphere including the music selection. The service was great! The charcuterie board was yummy but the crab cakes were not the best.

I love everything about this place. Menu is small but every item is creative and delicious. I love the strawberry basil smash, and they have the best wedge salad I've ever had.
