    Everything was amazing! We went on a nice family date, all having such hectic schedules, we wanted something a little nicer then normal and 22 Bowen’s fit the bill! All us had steaks and they were cooked perfectly, paired with some of the best mashed potatoes and roasted mushrooms we’ve had! We are already thinking of our next visit.

    Excellent dining experience . Lobster cocktail was the best I have ever had both in terms of quality and presentation. . Swordfish was perfectly cooked. Desserts are exceptional with the chocolate express one being a standout . Skip the Coq a Vin it was the one disappointment. Service by Fabio was also exceptional. Definitely worth a return visit.

    Another excellent meal at 22 Bowen! Started with a cocktails at the bar where Dutch served up a perfect Cosmo and one of their signature drinks, Fireside. Daniel was our table waiter and he was excellent, very personable and efficient. I had the winter squash app which was unique and delicious followed by a filet which was perfectly cooked med rare. My husband had a Caesar salad (very good but a bit too much dressing) and opted for the short rib, which was a filling option for a wet, cold winter night. We split a side of mushrooms which are always just right. 22 Bowen is consistently a wonderful place, and a great location, to dine in Newport!

    The service was amazing, good timing on all food / drinks ordered. The view from our seat was beautiful. We had great views of the ships and the water. I went for a date night dinner& the outside lighting made the experience intimate with my husband. I’d definitely go again for their lunch menu. I will be back during spring/ summer !

    We had a lovely dinner in the off season. The restaurant is near the water. The soups were great - lobster and French onion. The scallops were large and sweet- absolutely delicious. The key lime was excellent. The shrimp and grits were good. Our sever was great!

    Our brunch was wonderful (as usual) at 22 Bowens. We had the steak tips skillet special, the mushroom fricassee and the autumn squash hash and all was delicious and fresh. They have a full service bar, so we ordered screwdrivers - yummy. The service was attentive as well. We topped off the meal with the chocolate espresso cake which was decadent. We'll be back!

    We went to Newport for a girls weekend and had an amazing meal - we had steaks, salmon, and split delicious sides. This was all paired with a delicious wine that was recommended by the sommelier. We loved the ambiance and would not hesitate to come back again.
