Sign of the timesHave always liked Big Bowl. Have to say though that it appears they are cutting back on the amount of meat in their dishes. The last two times I ate there I had to fish around to find any beef or chicken.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMVery GoodOverall great experience. The staff works as a team and knows their menu. The food was up a little too fast, however this may just be the model the restaurant follows.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Food and Service!!Every meal we've ever had a Big Bowl has been wonderful!!! The management and servers are all great!!! I will definately be coming back!!!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was great, exceptEverything was great, except for the Mai Tai I ordered that was full of ice and took 15 minutes to get the bartenders attention.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMour lunch was excellent asour lunch was excellent as usual. We go to Big Bowl once a month for a team lunch since it is our favorite local restaurant.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best Asian restaurant!Consistently excellent food in great Asian styles. I never had a bad meal as they will customize your dish the way you want! I started with a cool IPA beer which was excellent while my wife tried a strawberry Sangria which was not your typical tooty-fruity wimpy Sangria.This one had a real kick. The chicken/dumpling soup was very good with chunks of chicken and spouts with a side of sliced hot peppers.
My entree was shrimp/scallop's on a bed of fried rice with bamboo shoots, ground peanuts and some hot red pepper slices.
Great beer on tap helped cool me down from the hotness.
Service was outstanding as my waiter was extremely accommodating and polite. This is why Big Bowl is so successful- Great Food, great drinks , and always grea4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThere were obvious flawsWonderful food, decent portion sizes and prices are too bad. When we first were sat (with reservation), it took the server a good 5 minutes just to acknowledge us and take our drink orders. In my mind, that's unacceptable, especially since it was a special occasion.
But, all in all, there wasn't anything to complain about. Server was very polite, food was good and fresh and the ambiance is wonderful for a night out with the loved one(s).
The only thing I would probably change is the tables are WAY TOO close to eachother. We were sat at a booth and honestly could almost touch my elbow to the table next to us. The servers were "squeezing" through as they walked by and sometimes bumped the table. Huge inconvenience!! CHANGE THAT4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingI was in and out in thirty minutes.

There was a lot of rice but the overall portion was small. The obience was very nice and our waiter was outstanding. My friend and I were celebrating a mutual birthday and he over heard us talking about it. He brought us a wonderful dessert to share but I would have never ordered it for the price. I thought it was rather pricey. I did have a great glass of red wine though that was a special for the night. The price was great as well.....$4.00!Overall, I would not be running back even though it is close to where I live.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
