Our waiter was amazing. Very friendly and enthusiastic about the food and serving us. I hope we get him in the future. He knows how to make a guest feel special.

Everytime we have the pleasure of eating at Big Bowl we are so delighted! The food comes PIPING HOT, which is a huge deal to me! We all love going up to the stir fry area and choosing our own veggies! I love bok choy so love loading that right up! Great variety of veggies! My son is vegan and he's always very satisfied with the variety and selections! My only complaint is parking..nothing to be done about that!

My son brought me to Big Bowl for my birthday and I thought it was great so I brought my sister and nephew this time and they enjoyed the meal so much that they will be back again and again

The food was very good and the service was friendly and relatively fast. The only odd thing is that, I was dining alone, since I was on a business trip. Even though there were plenty of empty tables in the main room, they put me in the back room, by myself. It stayed that way until I was almost done when a man dining by himself was brought in the room and seated at the next table over. At that point, it felt kind of like they were quarantining us. I actually didn't mind being there as it's a bit more quiet and less busy, but it was definitely odd.

Had the Valentine weekend price fixed dinner - it was great...those Asian Meatballs (appetizer we chose) were incredible...and should be added to the menu! Everything was great as always!

Big bowl moved our reservation from 6:30 PM to 7 PM without notice or calling us. They moved it back after I showed them both the email and the app with the actual reservation time. I have been there a number of time but this was the first they did this.

LOVE Big Bowl. I always get the build you own bowl. Rather than selecting a sauce or oil I have them use chicken broth.

Nice place. Had a fun time. Food was solid and server did a nice job explaining things to us. Never got our appetizer we ordered but server was super apologetic about it. No big deal. Overall - very good.
