Great steaks and chips. Cooked to perfection! Knowledgeable staff and great service
Great greeting upon entering. Great service! We had 2 food Allergies, they accommodated both of them perfectly. Server was amazing and had great personality!
Manny was an excellent server!
Steak was amazing. Get it.
Amazing food & great service. Will definitely be back again!
Honestly, just spectacular all around. Service from Al was impeccable, and all meals cooked perfectly.
Delicious food and cocktails with a View of the harbor. Excellent service. We celebrated our friends' 50th birthday with the help of Lenore the evening staff manager and our server Kat. They made every effort to make it an amazing night for us.
22 Bowen is always excellent. We love eating outside. The service was excellent and the food was outstanding. I highly recommend to anyone looking to eat in downtown Newport.
Great service, excellent location and the food was fabulous!
We’ve eaten here a bunch of times. This time just didn’t meet expectations. Their signature 22 Doli drink tasted like pineapple water. Scallops were raw and steaks were WAY over cooked. Sides were mediocre at best. Nothing like the 10-15 other times we’ve been in the past that were great. Maybe a new chef that just doesn’t match up? Not sure, but was definitely disappointing.
We ate 2 meals at 22 Bowen - one day apart. Everything was perfect! The setting, the menu, the quality of the food, the service was incredible. We absolutely love this restaurant.
I only learned after our dinner this restaurant is known for its steaks. My husband’s steak was delicious. My $50 grilled seafood was bland, the shrimp was spoiled and scallops were over cooked rubber. Cavatelli appetizer was also bland. Very disappointing.
Our meal was fantastic and the service was great!!
We had a quick lunch at 22 on a very busy Saturday but knew to plan ahead so we made a reservation and was sat right on the water. Beautiful location, great service. Food was good.
We are seasonal residents in Newport area. We come here once or twice a year. Food is outstanding and service is professional and cheerful.
Excellent food, beautifully prepared, large portions, fantastic service!
Great outdoor dining right on the dock. Food was delicious. The hamburger was fresh and full of flavor. Awesome!
Excellent service. Food quality very good. Was on street so different than in building but we did not mind.
Beautiful restaurant with amazing food. We had a fabulous waitress. We had a lovely night.
Though the food was excellent pricing is all about location. All a la carte makes it very pricey
Yes, our dinner meal was perfect. The food was excellent, and the tuna tartare appetizer was especially outstanding. Our server, Sarah, was absolutely perfect. She helped us have a very fun evening.
They seated us immediately and were very friendly. Our table was i side but near the open doors so we got to experience both the fresh air and being inside. The food and service were amazing
Great service and food!!
This restaurant is a MUST visit in Newport. Everyone was so nice and the service was very fast. Our server, Carol, was very nice to us and made sure we were constantly happy. This place does not disappoint, not to mention you can taste how fresh the seafood is. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a fairly affordable and wonderful place to dine out on the bay in Rhode Island.
Staff was attentive and helpful with menu questions. Food was outstanding. Drinks were delicious.
Excellent service. Food good. Server excellent. Prompt service. Server very knowledgeable.
Great lunch. Blackened swordfish tacos were excellent.
Table was ready right on time and enjoyed a harbor view inside. Food was very good although a bit on the pricey side. Enjoyable meal despite somewhat slow wait staff.
Food was so/so. Was not the usual level of 22 Bowens. Server was great. Wouldn’t go back. Nothing was great for price at all.
Fantastic dinner! Took my boyfriend for his birthday and the food was excellent. The calamari was some of the best we have had and the steak was amazing. We sat outside and were able to hear nearby live music. It’s definitely pricey so not an every week type dinner but absolutely worth going!
Veal chop was outstanding
Although we are typically skeptical of "touristy" spots, this one's a winner and we keep coming back whenever in Newport. Great selections, attentive service, wonderful view if you sit outside!
Server was amazing and very knowledgeable. Manager helped us with our wine selection, settled on a Italian white that he suggested which was delicious… food was out of this world, we had the coconut curry salmon, filet mignon and truffle Mac and cheese. Cannot wait to return!
To start, the food was excellent. Drinks were fantastic.
We sat by the retractable doors which at the time were opened and delivered a super breeze. That alone made for a wonderful ambiance. The decor was well done and I felt I was in an upscale restaurant.
Our food was perfect. Tuna tartare for an app was just delicious and a good size for two. I had the seafood dish with lobster tail, shrimp and scallops. They were cooked on the grill giving a Smokey grill flavor.
Desert and coffee was also a great treat to compliment the meal.
Having to opportunity to watch the boat charters come in and out made for the perfect everything as we dined.
The prices are high for me, but it’s Newport and a huge tourist attraction at that. I am was not shocked or bothered. We went for our anniversary and felt we walked away with an above average dinner and we’re so relaxed. I recommend dining here for people looking for an upscale restaurant on the coast.
Our server was seasoned and what she did as well as customer service. She made you feel like you were the sole focus of her evening. It’s nice to be at s place where you feel like your not s number and being rushed along.
Definitely check this out if the weather is right or if you want an inside only meal.
Great food and service. We sat outdoors on the boat dock area. Beautiful setting for dinner.
Their burgers are delicious! Do not pass up an opportunity to eat here. I cannot wait to visit again!
Beautiful place for lunch or dinner...highly recommend it!!!!
The food was wonderful and the cocktails were fantastic. Someone in my party did not get his wine until after being served his entree.
