We are Local regulars and always enjoy the service, the drinks, and the food- good selection on the menu. Great Hamburgers and Well Done Fries- I also really like the Fish & Chips, not the healthiest, it just makes you Happy!
- and they listen to your special wants & needs- if you haven't already- it's really worth a try .....parking downstairs (validated) makes it easy ...........

The food is amazing and service was terrific. There were three in my party and we ordered several small dishes to share. Spicy tuna on black crispy rice was amazing as well as the crab cakes. Each dish we ordered was excellent. Inside the restaurant is a little loud and my father had some trouble hearing. But not bad. The outdoor dining is great to request in advance if you want quieter. Kid friendly with many options.

So very excited to find Bottlefish on Open Table...what a find! Fresh, fresh fish with many preparations offered. We highly recommend the sea bass ceviche, tuna tartar, miso cod and the cauliflower! We had the most pleasant server, Kate, who knew the menu well and offered great suggestions. We simply can't wait to return!

I was impressed by the warm welcome as I entered the restaurant and again by my attentive server who graciously offered to substitute a light ponzu sauce for a spicy siracha mayo on the tuna and black crispy rice appetizer. Which was original and absolutely delicious.
My drink of choice was beautifully executed - sparkling water with butters and a slice of orange
.

I watched the dishes arrive at nearby tables and can’t wait to try their huge Caesar salad and seafood dishes.

Every time we come into town we love to go to this place. The food is amazing. Tried the crispy dark rice and spicy tuna appetizer this visit. It was excellent. There are a lot of creative options on the menu. The service was impeccable and the atmosphere is very relaxing.

The restaurant seems to have recently started lunch service again. The dining room was mostly deserted. Only 4 tables being used. I ordered fish and chips. The fries were lukewarm to cold and the fish was tasteless. I would have mentioned but it was a business lunch.

They specialize in seafood but I have had better fish and chips from food trucks. So disappointed.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner with friends at Bottlefish, a tastefully decorated space on the the 2nd floor of Brentwood Gardens Plaza, you can sit inside or outside on the patio. Our first time here, we had drinks and ordered the grilled artichoke and the spicy tuna on crispy black rice as appetizers. Both were delicious and we noticed afterwards that almost every table ordered the spicy tuna on crispy black rice. We all chose different grilled fish entrees (Branzino, Seared Ahi, Salmon and Swordfish) each with a different sauce. The entrees were very good. We also each ordered a side dish to accompany our meal: Broccolini, Cauliflower, Brussels Sprouts and Truffle Fries. I felt the veggies could have been a bit more flavorful but overall, they were enjoyable. One per person was unnecessary as the side dishes portions are large enough to share. Could not pass up the opportunity to share Warm Chocolate chip cookies with vanilla ice cream for dessert - it was the perfect size to share between the four of us. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. She provided excellent suggestions. All in all, a great time and we’ll definitely be back.

The best food, prompt and friendly yet old school polite service. I hate it when I’m trying to have dinner with friends and part of the interaction becomes having to engage with overly friendly person serving our table. But Perry was so knowledgeable, attentive and very accommodating but non intrusive. I love that. My hat off to Perry.
Food was interesting, and new and tasted superb in perfect size servings.

Now that summer is approaching, this is one of the best daytime as well as nighttime places to dine at. The spacious and tranquil setting will transport you to distant shores! And the food is terrific. I’m so happy that they are now open for lunch as well as dinner.

I always eat at Bottlefish and have fabulous service. Saturday night the service was not good. Waited twenty minutes to get our drinks. Waiter very slow in asking us if we were ready to order. He never came back to table to see if we were happy.

It was...fine but disappointing. The tuna on black crispy rice was fantastic. Everything else was ok. Biggest issue was that it took a solid 10 minutes for anyone to even come over to bring us water, check on us, anything. That was indicative of the service the whole night.

I love Bottlefish and we have returned many times--and I am especially thrilled that it will be reopening for
lunch.

My only issue is "noise level"! As the noise can be aggressive at times and it is hard to hear dinner table conversation if the restaurant is crowded.

The waiters are terrific and the food is delicious---Thank you!

A great choice for hosting a large table - menu and specials have wide variety so everyone had great choices. Table service was speedy but not too speedy just right. Portion sizes are very fair for the price and are substantial but not overwhelming. This was our second time at Bottlefish and we will be back!
