We were celebrating our friend’s birthday. Michael was our waiter. He was so knowledgeable about wine and every item on the menu. He made great recommendations in both areas. This was by far our best meal in New Port. I would highly recommend this restaurant and especially Michael!
Wonderful service and ambience. Calamari app was very good. Sea Bass special light and fresh.
The service was great.
The food is very good. We liked our meals. I wasn’t blown away.
They were out of the flatbread for the Chicken shawarma at 4:30 in the afternoon. That was disappointing.
I forgot to present my rewards card and wasn’t asked for it.
We were their for lunch and ordered burgers and sandwiches. They ran out of French fries and offered us nothing as a substitute. They need to have common sense and offer something else.
Reserved an outside table and we were put inside next to the bar. Hope outside means outside next time because we love the place!
Manny was our server and he was fantastic! He guided me to upgrade my wine selection and I am glad I followed his sage advice, the wine was outstanding. Manny also stopped both of us getting the succotash, he counseled us that one serving of succotash would be enough for the both of us, he was right again …!!! I got the center cut fillet and ordered it medium rare, it was absolutely perfect, with a char that was to die for …!!! My wife got the sword fish and she was thrilled, if her fish was overcooked, you would have heard about it, hers was again perfect. We had great seats with a view of the water,
All in all, we really enjoyed our visit there last night …!!!
Summer day in Newport. Can’t go wrong with a cocktail and some lunch outside at 22.
Food was ok at best and over priced
It was our first foray out amidst Covid. The restaurant and staff did a great job with the experience from check in through paying our bill. The food was excellent as always and service was good. Everything moved a little slower, which we expected and it was enjoyable to just enjoy my husband's company outside of our house!
Omg everything was delicious! Waiter was very friendly.
Love 22 Bowen, and many of the less than impressive aspects related to Covid, I am sure. Understaffing, Lack of smiles from staff ( including lack of eye contact w/ host at front desk), and lack of table attention and ambiance. The lack of Smiling or personal interest was the most disappointing. Our waitress was slammed and just couldn't pay the attention I felt was due our table. We were dressed up and ordered the Aged Steak, stuffed lobster... we weren't a fly in kind of table, yet I felt treated that way.
I will, of course, return, but not while the protocols are such that I am not served with the such touch of service I have come to enjoy when normally dining here.
50th birthday !
I made a reservation for my parents to celebrate their 40th anniversary. I called ahead to make a few arrangements and I couldn't have been happier with how everything turned out! The staff made my parents' celebration dinner very special and even included a dessert as a surprise. I'm sure they will be back again in the near future, and I hope to join them! Thank you again to the staff at 22 Bowens.
We had a great dinner outside. Our waitress was wonderful as well as the food!! Can't wait to go back:)
Loved our dinner. Family of 5 with kids aged 9, 12 and 14. Everyone happy with their meal choices. Some menu options seemed rather unrealistically priced but overall, sat outside on the upstairs deck we had a lovely family dinner and enjoyed the vibe of Bowen’s Wharf down below.
Food not up to previous Bowens standards. Some dishes were tepid and some presentations very poor. Booked a table for outside dining 6 weeks in advance, but upon arrival were told er had to eat inside.
Overall the best meal we had all weekend . Highly recommend.
Excellent food and service. We dined outside and it was beautiful by the water. We look forward to coming back here next time we are in Newport!
Delicious food great service
Bowen’s always provides good food and great customer service.
Overall experience was great.
Great food and servicd
Awesome food and great staff. Felt very safe!
Wouldn’t accommodate to seating requests
Amazing food and amazing waiter in terms of service, recommendations etc. Host/hostess were fairly rude which was a bummer, but otherwise a top notch dinner.
Had the dry aged steak and it was amazing, serving was for 2 (20oz) the Mac and cheese was very different than what I was used to eating at any other place. But overall I enjoyed it on a rainy day, it was worth getting rained on.
5 star food, service and atmosphere! Thank you
Absolutely love this place. Food and service fantastic as always. Buttered lobster roll and chowder were great
Excellent food, excellent customer service , not only for steak but for fish as well.
Great service - friendly, knowledgeable about menu and specials. We were sat at a beautiful table outside looking out on the wharf.
Had a very nice lunch w oysters n champagne on a beautiful day...
Wish are champagne was a lot colder as it really didn’t hit its peek till 3/4 of it was gone....
Lovely place as we will be back....
Great service from the time we arrived .Sat outside waitstaff perfect and best lobster rolls .
We ate lunch outside. The setting and view were terrific. The restaurant was well prepared for seating and service under COVID 19 rules. We have been to Bowens many times before. It is one of our favorites when we are in Newport. Typically, we go for dinner and would consider all aspects deserving of 5 stars. This visit was not the usual experience. The service was adequate at best. Our waiter in trying to be attentive, kept stopping by and asking if “we were all set and could he take anything”. There were only our two dishes on the table and we were still clearly eating. Not sure if he was poorly trained or trying to rush us. My wife ordered the lobster roll. It was four lonely looking pre-packaged claws on a large dry roll. Not fresh and no tail meat. I had the tuna poke. It was delicious and very fresh.
We will certainly ret
We came here for our first dinner on our honeymoon and the staff was so wonderful and welcoming. They congratulated us with complimentary champagne upon our arrival and took excellent care of us. The food was amazing and we enjoyed our evening very much.
Loved 22 Bowen’s! Sides are definitely meant to be shared. Made the mistake of getting our own personal sides, wayyyy too much. But their filet and lobster Mac and cheese was absolutely amazing! Tons of left overs, but we’ll definitely be back! Sat on their covered second floor outdoor dining area and enjoyed a beautiful night. Pricey, but well worth it!
The best French onion soup! The food was wonderful. The wait staff were friendly and very good . We probably went four times this week, lunch and dinner. I highly recommend 22 Bowen’s
Great dinner! Loved our quiet table by the water and superb service!
The second time we have been there is 2 weeks. Sat outside and had a Great People Watching Table. Started with a Dozen Little Necks which were Fresh and Refreshing. I had the Scallops with Chorizo and She had the Rare Seared Tuna which she exclaimed was the best she's had in a long, long time. Rebecca was our Server and She was Excellent with the flow of everything being just right. All in All, Excellent Experience...
It was absolutely Spectacular! My boyfriend and I really enjoyed everything. One complaint I have is that the taquilla we ordered was not what was charged. We were up charged for something we didn’t have and was told that that was the only button they had. So either management needs to input the right buttons or train their staff to understand the variables of liquor cost. Either way we most definitely be back very soon!
