OpenTable Diner (New England)

A perfect memory of Newport to take home with you. Lovely , comfortable 5 star atmosphere reminiscent of a colonial tavern. The wait staff are professional, knowledgeable and entertaining with delightful personalities found in posh New York private clubs. The food never disappoints. Delicious from appetizers to dessert. Steaks that are by far best in Rhode Island, succulent seafood ....desserts to consider one more bite. My husband and I visit as often as we can....it has been our Valentine's Day place for the last four years. Celebrating our 40th Anniversary this year...we found another excuse for a visit !!

Enjoyed the dinner. The food was wonderful, yet the only draw back was in waiting for our table (we were 30 minutes early) was standing near the entrance and waiting for a drink as the bar area was filled with patrons eating at the bar. This created several layers deep of people waiting for a table and standing right inside the entrance doors having a drink in the midst of servers excusing themselves around the people waiting, drinking while waiting for a table...but that seems to be the MO
Of many restaurants in the area. Not a huge deal, but problematic none the less. Enjoy

We went there for a special date night. I asked for a quiet, romantic, corner table when I made our reservation & that was honored. It was a very busy night & we were seated at the exact time of our reservation. Our waitress, Leah, was exceptional....she was pleasant, friendly, & extremely helpful when were undecided about a few choices. All staff members were very friendly.
The food selections were great. Our meals were delicious.
I would highly recommend this restaurant & plan to go back whenever we are in Newport.

Dinner here was amazing. My friend and I split the cheese board, which was perfect for two and absolutely delicious. I ordered the salmon entree and she ordered the chicken, both cooked to perfection. The service and atmosphere were superb and we will definitely be back!

Great food, service, and atmosphere. We go every year for our anniversary and it never disappoints. My wife forgot her glasses and server lent her a pair for the menu. Truely the best meal in town, hands down. Keep up the great work, it is appreciated.

Was pleasantly surprised by the choices offered for a 3-course special. Chowder was superb; filet was cooked perfectly; dessert was delicious. Waiter was informative and attentive; manager greeted us and thanked us for our patronage. Would definitely recommend.

Bolognese should be removed from the menu. One of the worst i have ever seen at a restaurant. Like someone threw three different kinds of leftover pasta together with a heavy sausage vodka sauce. Looks and tastes disgusting

Steak was dry and unflavorful. Half cooked medium rare half cooked rare

Wine tasted like it had been sitting under a heat lamp

Sat in the wine room. Right next to lighted glass case that showed off a random display of items and shelves that hadn’t been cleaned in years

In Newport for the weekend! Second time visiting 22 Bowens. Dinner was delicious
once again. The oysters and tuna tarter to start off were great and the mains course porterhouse and filet was absolutely incredible.
Will definitely be back for our next Newport trip!
