I went here twice, once to have drinks on the side of the patio and the second time to have dinner indoors. Unfortunately it had been raining that day so we sat indoors, which is a nice area but the patio is the place to be! Good service, decent burgers (medium-raw was a bit too well-done) nice handmade fries, and a nice selection of (local) beers. Only downside? We were sitting right next to the airco so it was very cold.

Be sure and stay for dessert!
We arrived early and were seated right away. The service was fast, friendly, and reliable. Food was tasty, from the guacamole appetizer to the fish and chips entree to the delicious cobb salad.
But nevermind all that.
For dessert, we ordered the Lavender Pound Cake with Pineapple Chutney and Coconut Gelato. My goodness, one of the most interesting and delicious flavor combinations I have had in the city! Everything worked so well together, the tastes and the texture...very delicious. Enough to share with another person, and a great topper for an already delightful meal.
Next time my wife and I are in the area, we're coming back...and we're bringing friends...fire up the pound cake!

A good send-off
I was looking for a casual, yet nice place to take a friend before his departure to explore a new life in Buenos Aires - Bowery B&G was the choice, and a good one at that. Good service, friendly waiters, and great atmosphere for a group of friends to get together.

Still great after all these years
I first visited Bowery Bar in my early 20's, even after all these years, it's still as a pleasurable experience as my first time. The service, still outstanding (Castro was on top of everything, constantly checked in to make sure we were good, food is really good, I love the decor and layout and of course the trees w lanterns and the incredible oysters that I always remembered. The accompanying sauces, mmmm. I did try the Moroccan pizza for the first time. Writing about it, I'm k8nd of craving it now. It was so delicious. I've always l9ved Bowery Bar and now I remember why.

Fun place for a group
Gets loud with the street and the bar. Service is nothing exceptional but the food is good and price is right.

Fabulous find in the city!
We were do happy with our choice! The atmosphere is great. Open air seating - walls, but no roof. (There is a section under cover in case of rain.) Plenty of trees to keep you shady in the day and cozy at night when they light the lanterns. Service was very warm and attentive. Food was delicious.

Lovely setting for brunch in Soho
Our friends who live in the neighborhood recommended the Bowery Bar and Grill for brunch. The outdoor setting was lovely. I liked the menu and was not disappointed in my order of huevos rancheros. Everyone else was pleased with their order. The only downside was the coffee--flavorless and a bit bitter. A member of our group sent back her specialty coffee as not what was ordered. Actually, she may have been confused in what the drink was supposed to look like. The wait staff tried to be accommodating but you could sense her displeasure. Call it a draw. I would recommend this as a nice place to get together with friends. Request the outside seating on a nice day as preferable to the indoor bar.

I have dined here several times. Very good food and service and reasonable prices. Very convenient to the Public Theatre. We had reservations for a party of 4 and , after appetizers, two friends joined us. The staff was very accommodating and added a table to ours.

Quick Bite Before Blue Men
This reservation was for a quick bite to eat before we headed to see the Blue Men at Astor Place at 2:00pm. It's a little hard to find the door into this restaurant, but once we were in everything went swimmingly. Two adults and two young teens for lunch, and everyone raved about their food. Service was prompt and accurate; no problems whatsoever. I imagine this place is great in the summertime; it has a very open layout. We would definitely go back.

A Great Local
In the grand tradition of "The Local" as we find them in the UK and Europe. A neighborhood meeting place for friends where one can always claim a certain table as one's own and rely on the moderately priced fare and wine list. Lively without being overwhelmingly noisy. Dine among a mix of downtown intellectuals, aspiring actors and models, the famous, families, and old friends. Expansive, high ceiling interior, leading to a conservatory-like section with a two way central fireplace and a large, plant-filled terrace beyond. On the edge of East 4th Street Theater Row, a great spot for pre or post performance dining. Come for the atmosphere and stay for the food which is always reliably good and service that is friendly and prompt.
