Overall

I debated on the 5th star, but you know what? The Manager asked me if there I was anything he should change and I told him "Please don't change a thing, you can only mess it up".

Concerning the commentary about how it looks from the outside: Don't judge a book by it's cover. Yeah, it has some "Mafia hideout place to bring your mistress maybe it's really a strip club" look to it - but if you haven't figured it out by now, that IS part of the charm and the appeal. One reviewer here thinks none of the clientele are locals. Perhaps he is clairvoyant, but I don't think it is possible to make such a claim.

Pricey? Not really. Making comparisons to Outback? You should probably stick with Outback.

To start - our waitress (also the bartender) Hillary made me one of the better Old Fashioneds with Dark Rum I've had. She left out the orange but it was still pretty great. Now she knows she has Myers on hand, too.

We had "the cheese" but with Panini bread instead of crackers. Sounds silly, I know. I thought the cheese was to die for, and the danger here is eating too much of it. Next time I will eat the cheese with a spoon when no one is looking. The bread is crazy good, too. There is a reason they bring this out to your table when you are seated - it's tastes really good.

We also had Salad with Blue Cheese, Shrimp Scampi (prepared perfectly), Trout (perfect), Ribeye (it was hard to resist licking my plate in public when it was gone), Creamed Spinach (awesome) and Mushrooms. (I love mushrooms, but these are prepared in a wine sauce, wheras I am more of a garlic butter fan).

We had a hard time choosing a bottle of wine, but we described what we were looking for and another waiter made a recommendation - it was spot on. I think it may be crowded on Mon and Thurs for half-priced wine nights, so remember you probably need a reservation any night of the week. When we were leaving a van full of seniors showed up with no reservations. The Manager was trying to accommodate, and I hope they were able to work it out but...trust me, make a reservation.

We had to skip the dessert this time, but it was tempting.

We thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience, and sincerely hope it doesn't change a bit. We are new fans and cannot wait to go back. To anyone who didn't like it, you should probably stick with chain restaurants.

Uptight environment, Great food, Very pricey

The food is really very good. But you definitely pay for it. The environment is polarizing. It's set up in this old shack run-down looking building, but with white table cloths and candles on the table. The manager seems very arrogant. But the server was very personable. If you sit inside the dining room, it's very very dark. You can barely see the food in front of you. But it provides more of an atmosphere if you don't mind how dark it is. The bar area has a lot more daylight coming in which is better in my opinion. It's a place that tries to act very ritzy but at the same time will serve you cold cheez whiz as an appetizer. You'd think for $48 for a steak they could afford to give you a little better quality than a tiny ball of cheez whiz. But if you don't mind spending a ton of money, the taste of the food is good.

Perfect Date Night

My sister and I decided to come here for the Oysters Rockefeller. We were just blown away by the service, staff, menu and ambiance. Couldn't have asked for a better, more intimate meal. My sister's oysters were absolutely perfect and I had the beef kabobs that I have been talking about for days. The french onion soup was perfect, and I can't wait to come back!

What Happened?

There was a time when I would have said this was one of the best restaurants in town. But no more. first of all i am a native; have lived here for over 50 years & ate here many times BUT not within the past 10 years. We were on that side of town and hungry...decided to stop in for a wonderful meal. No we did not have a reservation but we were sat within 10 minutes...from there it went downhill. My steak was fine but nothing to brag about, husbands was BAD...I don't know if meat had set out but the taste was so bad I spit it out. Waitress more or less called me a liar..said it was our taste buds/food was fine. Toast did not arrive till after meal was over. Service was tedious at best. We had to listen to the a young man (who manager was sucking up to) tell racist jokes. It is so sad to see this place come to this..but it is so different than how it used to be. Too many other places to spend my money at; we will not be back

DE-LISH

My hubby and I went here for our first real date night since my son was born. We ordered the frog legs to start since neither of us had ever had them. The were pretty good. I had a Pineapple Upside Down Martini-tasted JUST like the cake. I had the small filet and loved it. The food at Beef and Bottle is so simple. There wasn't much to it but that was what made it so good. The steak was cooked perfectly and we truly enjoyed ourselves. The atmosphere is very romantic and we had such an awesome night! We can't wait to go back.

Five stars? Really?

Cafeteria food served in tight quarters. Park in back. Hey, at least you can get a cocktail. Ratings from regulars should be discounted. I'm frankly surprise this many regulars have Internet access. Better than Ruth's Chris? Really?!?

ROMANTIC ATMOSPHERE

We've dined at Beef & Bottle a few times now. When you enter, you go back in time ... black and white photos of movie stars, great music! I would highly recommend going there for a romantic evening.
Each time we go, the service and food have been outstanding. You are served complimentary cheese and crackers. The salad is much like a ""salad bar"" that comes to your table. You make your own salad from a variety of vegetables. Salad dressing comes on the side.
We have been several times since discovering this ""jewel"". No matter what you order, a steak, chicken, or seafood, it is cooked to perfection. The wine selection is quite broad and won't disappoint you!! They also have 1/2 price wine night.
Let's just say that when we visit Charlotte, it is our favorite place to dine! Love everything about it!!

Good, but not Ruth's Chris

I agree with most of what has already been written. Everything is great there, and the steaks are cooked to order, and seasoned well. But, they are not top quality beef. They do have the flavor of grocery store steaks, but cooked very well. Great atmosphere, love the salad presentation, and great dressings. I'd go there as a "regular" steak night. If they just had better quality meat, it would be 5 stars!
