Excellent food and service. I sat on a high top, which I didn't love, but it was close to a heat lamp. Ordered a NY Strip medium rare, lobster mac and cheese, spinach, and fingerling potatoes, split between 2 people. Also the chocolate chip cookies. Everything was fantastic, and took leftovers home. Will be back.

Everything was terrific! We love this place. Steaks cooked to perfection....We dined there a few weeks ago on a very cold night and despite the temperature outside, the heater, blankets and warmth of the staff made our dinner that much more enjoyable. Can’t wait to go back.

We had an amazing experience. From Jovine's greeting at the door all the way through Paul's service things were outstanding. I think we did the ordering right we had: House Made Ricotta, Broiled Oysters, West Coast Oysters, Duck Wings, Steak Tartare, Duck Lasagna, Bowery Steak, Tomahawk, Double Strip, Fingerlings, Brussels, Spinach, BM Cookies, and a cheesecake. haha We did it up! The staff could not be nicer, bussers, manager who stopped by, and chef who stopped by.

I cannot wait to make a return trip with parents and brother.

Thank again for a memorable night,
Steven

I dined at Bowery Meat Company for the first time, and had a fantastic experience. They have a great setup for outdoor dining, but I chose to sit inside. The restaurant is absolutely beautiful, and the tables were nicely spread out. I started with the creamed spinach - which was simply to die for. I then had the slow-roasted salmon with a side of whipped potatoes. It was just incredible. I finished with the chocolate chip cookies served with salted caramel cream. Simply fabulous. My server Delance was truly delightful - one of the friendliest and most professional servers that I've ever had. He was knowledgeable about every item, and made certain that my dining experience was perfect. One of the best restaurants in downtown NYC.

I cannot express enough my gratitude for the special treatment we received for my girlfriend's birthday+anniversary.

Service was impeccable and our food was fantastic.

My only criticism would be that the music and overall noise was very loud, which made it difficult for us to communicate.

Overall, it was a special night and we look forward to returning soon!

This was a second visit to to Bowery Meat Company. Service was excellent. But there were two issues.

1. The covid surcharge of 10% that doesn’t go to the staff. If it would be like a mandatory tip, I would be more accepting, but giving a tip on top of the covid charge adds an extra 30% in already fairly expensive place. So basically you overpay or stuff the servers that don’t deserve it.

2. My wife’s steak was great. My steak was really burn on the outside. Was cooked nicely inside, but outside it was charcoal. I had to basically cut of the top of each piece, because eating it as is was ridiculously bitter. Did not expect this as the previous visit everything was great. And especially considering this was not a cheap meal.

Excellent food. Given it is outdoor dining, the "street" ambience was OK. They have a somewhat enclosed tent area that looked inviting. Appetizers and Hors d'oeuvres were great. Delicious sides as well. The steak was fantastic.

I love BMC they always go above and beyond. Food, service and drinks are always great. Even during covid they took extra precautions to ensure everyone’s safety. Our server was very knowledgeable and very speedy. Even tho we didn’t want dessert. Porter house with the lobster Mac was the right choice. Oh, our roasted oysters with garlic parm was perfect But since I put that it was my GFs bday when I made the reservation they brought out a gelato and freshly baked cookie. The entire meal was as always amazing.

High-end steakhouse where you have to be willing to open up your wallet but it is worth the $. Went for a bday celebration and everything from the food to the service was great - not to mention one of the more well done outdoor setups I've seen to do. BMC is 5 star restaurant all the way through

The staff hurried us through our entire meal, pressuring to get the order all at once. The waitress tried to convince us to order a lot more than we needed and kept pressuring us to order, eat, and give out the table as fast as possible. Will not be going back.

My boyfriend and I came here for our anniversary and we enjoyed it very much. It was our first time here and it will definitely wont be the last. Although we arrived 10 minutes late, they sat us down right away. We had a tomahawk and a side of french fries which was great. I couldn’t have a cocktail because I am pregnant, so our amazing server offered me a virgin mojito which made it so much better. My boyfriend had a old fashioned cocktail; he loved! We 100% recommend it.

BMC was just ok.My partner ordered the salmon, which was very tasty. I ordered the bone in filet which was flavorful but pretty tough. There was appropriate social distancing and safety present. Given all the other steakhouses in NYC, will probably not return.

Even though it suddenly started pouring outdoor set up was so well done that we did not get a drop on us. Food is amazing - as good or even better than before and service was OUTSTANDING! Didn't miss a beat due to rain or having to run food from inside to outside. Very good value for a high end meal. We will be back soon.

Amazing service, quality of food & wine were superb!!! Modern contemporary steakhouse which we love. Not your traditional white table cloth dining- so outdated! Bowery vibe and feel is so modern and updated! Even during the pandemic the outdoor dining vibe is great!

First outdoor dining experience post quarantine - Bowery Meat Company made me feel very safe and comfortable. The food is always excellent, but during such a strange time it was truly nice to be tucked away on a quiet street with a well done outdoor adjustment. Would highly recommend.
