Service was superb. I made a stir fry bowl and the teriyaki was rather bland but overall the veggies were fresh and the steak tender. Love the ginger ale!
We will be back.

Big Bowl is always a very nice dining experience for our family. We have quite a range of dietary requirements: vegan/gluten free/vegetarian/low fat/omnivore...and Big Bowl has something for everyone. The staff is always very polite as well as very knowledgeable and helpful with any questions that we have. Nice place for a nice meal - ‘nuff said😋

I have eaten here numerous times. Their food is always fresh and the stir fry is awesome. Today I did the chopped salad for the first time and it was great! For lunch time they get you in and out quickly.

This is always a great experience. We eat here as a small group get together every other month. The wait staff are excellent and remember previous requests. The waiter is friendly and very helpful in identifying food preferences. Food is great and always served the right temperature in an appealing way. Highly recommend.

I must eat gluten-free. The menu has great choices for a gluten-free person. I appreciate that and will keep this restaurant on my short list of places I will eat at.

A few of us decided to celebrate my birthday dinner at Big Bowl & we’re glad we did. Our waiter was great & checked up on us frequently without being overbearing. The food was delicious & reasonably priced. Will definitely go back!

Had an issue getting our appetizers before our main course.They finally came after a few reminders with our server and the Manager. One dish was not liked by one person in our party and they gladly replaced it with another. The Manager went above and beyond to make things right for us. I totally understand that things happen and this experience will not prevent me from going back.

Great food and service. Only thing we didn’t like was the seating arrangement. We got a table for 2 and it was along a wall where a bench ran along the wall and a chair on the other side of the table. They have many tables fairly close together along that wall and it seems you are eating with strangers as they are right next to you.

We had a table of 6. Service was good as well as the food only issue we had was a member of our party got a dirty wine glass and we sent it back and got another dirty wine glass in return they were very apologetic and when we got the bill they had taken off the bottle of wine that was unexpected and the right thing to do

When we walked in with the reservation and saw 100 people waiting in the lobby, flooding out of the revolving door, we thought we were in trouble. They sat us immediately!

Waitress was nice; shishito pepper and cauliflower appetizer was delightful! AND sangria pitcher deals on Fridays!

Table was cramped and noise was insane - I don’t fault them for this on a Friday night at a place like this - totally expected.

Amazing panang curry and pad thai - plentiful shrimp and great flavors!

You must get the Almond Cookie sundae for dessert.

I didn’t have any problems, but if I did, I know they would have fixed it right away.

We bought the Lettuce gift cards, got the $25 bonus, and used the regular ones to pay - it’s a good deal.

It’s always good food but it’s a tad pricey spending $100 for 3 people and only one of us had an alcoholic beverage and one app amongst us. Of course it’s probably because I’m the one paying the $100 for all three of us...

Making reservations online was easy and convenient. From the moment we came in everyone was smiling and showed us promptly to our table. Server was great in making sure my vegan daughter knew of all the option available for her. Family enjoyed the meal!

Was the first time my husband was ever there. He loved that her could pick out his own vegetables for the stir fry. We had such a nice time. Our waitress was very nice and did not rush us at all. She explained different menu items to us. All and all a great night. We will go back again.
