Nice for a quick evening out. Casual business meeting place where it’s not too noisy!

Dont do it. Went after reading great yelp reviews for new years eve dinner. Thoroughly disappointed. Ordered a dozen oysters which were NOT fresh and had pieces of shells in every single one. Tried to order the dungeness crab salad, but they were out. How can you be out of something at peak dinner time on NYE?! Tried the pumpkin salad instead which was bland and didnt want to waste my daily calorie intake to work it off. Lastly, I paid in cash and they returned with incorrect change! Im not talking a few cents or dollars, were talking about 20 dollars. Three strikes! But really the last part really upset me.

For cocktails sure not so much for dinner as you can’t have a conversation or see anyone. Too dark and loud for that. Actually used our phone lights up read the menu. Our waitress couldn’t hear our order. Forgot an appetizer and brought the wrong salad.

Everything we had was good except the risotto, which I didn't care for. Service was excellent.

I love Bottle and Bull! I've been here a few times now and everything I have tried is delicious. This is definitely a more expensive spot so I use it for a special date night. The portions for some of the plates can be small, but overall most are fair (and healthy) sizes! Definitely recommend this restaurant.

We enjoyed the Steak Frites, Burger, and Cubano sandwich. The steak and burger temperatures were spot on. were The truffle fries are 5 star delicious. The Bar is really nice, and the menu has lots of craft cocktails and whisky. I found the draft beer selection somewhat limited - I expected more Lager and Dark beer options. Our server was cordial and attentive. The restaurant was kind of drafty for some at our table so be careful where your seated. Decor and setting is nice.

Food is terrific - noise level is too "energetic" for my taste since I enjoy having a conversation with those I'm with.

We really enjoyed our night! The food was better than expected and the service was outstanding, we will definitely go back when we’re in the area. Two stand out dishes of the night were the mushroom pasta and the roasted pork.

We were at Bottle & Bull early (4 p.m.) so it was pretty quiet. Had a nice table by the window. Food was excellent, the server was friendly and attentive. It was nice to take a short walk after dinner to Lake Washington's Marina Park. We are new to the area, originally from the midwest, and are enjoying exploring new restaurants. This is on our return visit list.

Definitely our new favorite place! This was our first visit and we absolutely loved everything about it. Our server was fantastic, he knew everything about the menu and had great suggestions for our drinks. The food was very creative and absolutely delicious. Bottle &Bull is in a great spot in the heart of Kirkland, we will certainly return.

Our orders seemed to get mixed up in the kitchen or by our server; hard to tell. 2 people ordered different hamburgers and the temperatures were wrong. 2 people ordered dry martinis and they were not, so had to send them back. Overall, it is a great place to go on a date. The food was delicious, just the overall experience (compared to other restaurants in the area) was a little lack luster.

The craft cocktails were fantastic. Maybe too good because that overshadowed our thoughts on the food. Menu is unique and has a nice variety. Great location for people watching!!!
