Where in LA – Everything that came to the table here was fantastic. I'm always expecting a little less from restaurants in LA, but La Botte was incredible. The pastas especially. Great Service, great wines, great service, you should go.
Okay for specail occasion – I was there with couple of my girlfriend to enjoy our once a month get together.One of my agent recommened to try the Chef menu.It took a little longer for our Antipasti to be served, but the excellent wine that waiter suggested make the wait less painful.The only thing that make us very uncomfortable is the Chef Luigi try so hard to flirt with us, I guess Italian men doesn't understand that the girls night out don't mean that we are avaliable.
Sumptuous meal, beautiful wine and attentive, unpretentious service. – Delicate flavours and human-sized portions make this restaurant cosmopolitan. The location is also a plus, and the service pleasant, helpful and efficient. While not inexpensive, there is definitely value for money for serious food and wine-lovers. The crab linguine was a particular favourite.
Food is out of this world! – I have been to this restaurant twice and the second time I went was even better than the first. The first time, I was amazed at the quality of the food and the waitors are very attentive and knowledgable. I eat out at these types of restaurants once a week and this place is, by far, one of my favorites.
The second time I went, the General Manager of the restaurant recognized me and sent me complimentary dessert that was nothing less than amazing! I can not compliment the service or food enough. The only downfall was that the wine was overpriced. But, most restaurants overprice wine, and if you bring your own bottle, they will only charge you a corkarage fee.
Heavenly!! – Every time I come here, I like it even more. This is exactly what a high-end Italian restaurant should be. The food is amazing (inventive and impossibly tasty), the wine list is wonderful, and the service is perfect -- helpful but unobtrusive. I'd highly recommend this for any sort of special occaision, or if you're just in the mood for an excellent meal. For appetizers, anything fish or seafood-based is good, and for entrees, meat and game are the way to go. On the wine list, let the sommalier help you -- he's never steered me wrong. This place is an absolute gem!
la Botte – My experience at La Botte was fantastic. I went with 2 other friends and we were all agreed it was exceptional very pricey but worth it. I have eaten at some of the finest restaurants in the country and I would say this was comparable. We order from the Prix Fixe Menu every dish served was brillant.
The pastas you could tell were made from scratch the selection of mushrooms they served with the pasta delicious. The fish was so good I would compare to Le Bernadine in New York thats how good it was. Dessert of the 3, I tasted I could not make up my mind which I liked the best. The service was wonderful. We met the Chef Luigi totally charming. The best recommondation is that you don't even have to leave California for great Italian Food.
Favorite Restaurant – La Botte is our favorite restaurant in LA. Impeccable food and service. Expensive, but well worth the money. Let them do the tasting menu and wine selection for you.
Great and authentic, but expensive – We went here for a birthday celebration and were more than impressed! The staff (especially Antonio) were very attentive and informative about the food and wine selections. We tried the six course prix-fixe meal and while it was expensive ($70 per person), it was worth it for a special occasion. Each night the chef makes different selections. We loved the food and the ambience. We lived in Italy for a time and felt like we were back there - very authentic. Highly recommended for special occasions. We will be back.
Elegant Dining, Extraordinary Food – This restaurant easily surpasses most, if not every, Los Angeles restaurant in terms of quality of the menu, taste, service, and ambiance. The chef's seasonal tasting menu was immaculate. It took a little over 2 hours to finish dinner, yet was paced perfectly and made for great conversation. The staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and prompt.
One of LA's Best Restaurants – Absolutely wonderful. If you truly appreciate fine dining, you must try La Botte. All the little extra touches are memorable as is the impeccable, sharp service from the pleasant staff. It was superb and worth every penny.
