We have been here twice recently for an early lunch with friends. To be frank, on the first occasion I was persuaded to go although it was not my first choice. I was pleasantly surprised. The menu is imaginative and the dishes are good, the beer is good and the service is good. The second time I needed no persuasion.... More

We had a lovely evening with excellent food and service. The prime rib was perfect. We would recommend this restaurant to others, without hesitation. A great date night experience. Thanks.

Very good menu and food in a pleasant atmosphere. Old brick walls, some piano music and not bad service. The selection on the menu should please most as will the wine list. Salads are fresh and varied. Very enjoyable restaurant.

Our favorite place to go on Wednesday evenings....hands down! They always have a new 'date night menu' every Wednesday and as many times as we have gone, we've always had a great meal. The food is always hot and well seasoned. The waitstaff are professional and right on top of your every request. Three entree selections to select from which... More

Between appointments with just 45 min. for lunch we enjoyed a relaxing and up scale setting where in less time then expected our food was in front of us. We'd not told our server that we were in a hurry, they simply are on top of things in the kitchen. We did order one of the lunch specials a beef... More

Wish I lived nearby as this Chinese chicken salad was excellent: fresh and varied greens, slender julienned jicama, tender fennel, shredded red cabbage, and yummy chicken. The dressing was sweet and tangy, not too heavy, and spiced well. A huge deep fried wonton accompanies the salad. Interesting location in Old Town Auburn, so browse a bit in the cute shops... More

We love Bootleggers! The food is always consistent and the wait staff very professional. I love the special touches of fresh flowers on the tables and in the flower boxes outside for their patio dining. It's almost always crowded on Wednesday Date Night where two people can have two entrees, salads, (or soup) and a desert to share. Their wine... More

Bootleggers has evolved from a formerly high end fine dining venue down to a more middlin menu and pricing point, probably due to competitive pressures from adjacent establishments. It's current offerings are more acceptable to the clientele's palate wallet, with American fare dominant. My recent weekend dinner out with friends was enjoyable, with French onion soup that was passable and... More
