Drink selection horrible. Found food to be over priced.
Average meal for the hype it gets. Not horrible at all but just very average. Service was amazing. They pay attention to details. Victoria rocks!!
We went as a foursome to celebrate a friends 60th birthday. Wait staff was knowledgeable and attentive. Steak was perfectly cooked - I recommend the special we had if available - the 18 oz. sirloin - dry aged 45 days. We split 2 of them for the 4 of us - and they plated them split for us - yuuummmm! Good wine list and the martinis were made perfectly. Recommend this restaurant - just be aware that noise level is rather high.
We ate at the bar because Molly and her coworker were conscientious and attentive. The Bruins were on and they even changed the channel so we could watch. They even brought my daughter a piece of cake for her birthday. Great place In Newport!
The calamari appetizer was average, salmon special was average to above, filet special was OUTSTANDING- truly a special dish. Service was wonderful, drinks very good.
Restaurant was not full and food (fish) took way too long. It was not bad but for taking that lo g I was not impressed at all. Very average taste.
Great experience with a first class waiter, great food and an amazing wine list. The chilled lobster appetizer was awesome as were our steaks and sides. Like all high end a la carte steak houses, it can feel pricey when the bill comes. However, no complaints, I’d definitely go back.
Amazing service and even better food. Great date spot.
We were looking so forward to our dinner at 22 Bowen’s but unfortunately my filet was uncooked in the center. First few bites seemed ok. I ordered it Medium. It was uncooked/cold/raw inside. Not worth the price we paid. Our waitress was great though. Food was disappointing overall.
I was disappointed in my sirloin steak. Several pieces had gristle that were inedible.
The others in our group were very happy with their meals.
We used a Newport dine out book and the server quoted different restrictions than the book quoted. He said that the free meal could not be over $40, while the book said no lobster dishes and no aged steaks.
Great everything just perfect
Great greeting we were seated right away . Our server made some terrific recommendations. This is a pricey restaurant but the service and food warrant it
Always love our dining experience at 22 Bowen's. It is our "go to" place for special occasions.
We had to wait for a table even though we had reservations.
What happened next was outstanding. GM Jay and Waitress Sharon were not only concerned that we had to wait but took care of us like we were royalty. Sharon provided excellent service along with her support staff and Jay took care of us with a very nice special desert tray. They were outstanding.
Great overall experience! The restaurant was busy and we were sat us 40 minutes after our reservation time. The manager brought us a complimentary cheese board and was very apologetic. The service was fantastic and the food was delicious. We will definitely be back!
Always a great place to dine. Food and service are great.One of our favorite places in Newport.
Very good food, and great location. Went for a birthday celebration and hoped for a quiet conversation and had table upstairs near window but was very noisy so unable to hear at table and hard time hearing waitress.
Husbands birthday weekend. Early dinner 545 and lots of food on floor. Food & waitress great.
Manager hovering over tables was uncomfortable
Tuna was stringy and frozen on the inside. Server was great. Food was disappointing.
First time for our guests - they loved it! We are always delighted with our meals @ 22 Bowen - best of the best!!
Great food and great service. They are not fooling around when it comes to their steak. It is expensive but it's a damn good steak. :) Also their cocktail drinks are yummy! It gets very crowded and a line forms for dinner so book in advance.
Coming from NY to Newport over the years , we appreciate the consistent level of quality this restaurant delivers.
Great food and service. Really enjoyed the evening.
The food and service was amazing. Definitely suggest eating at 22 Bowens.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed a multi-course meal over the span of three hours and a couple of drinks at 22 Bowens.
We got seated in a small room upstairs that had about 6 smaller tables and kept us away from most of the noise from the main portion of the busy floors. The service was prompt and attentive, but never felt like we were being pressured to hurry through our meal.
The foie gras appetizer was amazing; even converted my wife who previously wasn't a fan of the stuff. I loved my rib eye steak covered with mushrooms and black truffles. The mint chocolate budino dessert was a decadent and luxurious finish to the meal.
Perfect night celebrating a birthday! Our server Kara was the best and the dinner was outstanding. Best steak in Newport.
Basically overpriced. The food was acceptable, and the steak I ordered was not prepared as requested. If you order side dishes, plan to share because they are very large servings. Seating was cramped, very loud in dining area, the only real bright spot was the server, who despite being 38 weeks pregnant, was cheerful, helpful and very accommodating. We'd give her 5 stars.
Up for a stay in Newport for the weekend. Always my go to restaurant. Food and experience was outstanding as always. This restaurant never disappoints
Pool service. Had to constantly ask for water. Waitress hardly came to table and had to keep asking server from other table. Very disappointed with meal and service and when I had booked reservation, I noted it was a birthday dinner which was meaningless.
Our waiter was attentive, the food was great, and I definitely recommend dining here!
Went to 22 Bowens to celebrate a birthday. The food and service were both excellent.
The waitress was very attentive, professional and personable. No-one rushed us and we had a perfect evening.
The evening meal was topped off with desert that was graciously provided by the restaurant.
Everything was terrific! We came for Easter dinner and the service and food were both top notch! Highly recommend 22 Bowen’s to anyone anytime they come to NPT and want amazing food in a great location!!
Wonderful experience- great food and service
The service was not great. I have been in the industry for years and we were ignored for long periods of time. I understand our server was busy but it got to the point that other staff noticed we didn't have drinks for nearly our entire meal before our server did.
We had a wonderful anniversary dinner
Service was personal and attentive but never intrusive
Food was excellent from beginning to end
We will be back
Exceptional dining experience.my first visit.but certainly not my last..excellent salad and filet mignon...and pumpkin creme brule...and enough veggies to take home...great night out🌝
The steaks were phenomenal! I opted for the 18oz Delmonico (cognac cream) and my wife had the 14oz Ribeye (blue-cheese butter). Flavors were on point w/ everything. Sides of asparugus and mushroom fricassee were cooked very nicely. No room for desserts unfortunately - but we plan on coming back. Hopefully next time, we’ll get to try the sweets!! Great job 22 Bowen’s....keep up the good work.
We always make a reservation when we visit Newport which is at least once a year sometimes twice. We are guaranteed to have a fantastic meal and a great time as well!
The food was incredible. Absolutely delicious right down to the dessert which was out of the ordinary amazing. It was very cozy, dimly lit and I liked the atmosphere. But it was too dark to see the menus which have a very light scrolled font. That would be my only complaint. Very good Would go back again and again.
