Big Bowl Ridgedale
Chicken Lettuce Wraps
bibb lettuce, hoisin sauce, crispy rice noodles
Confused host. Almost non-responsive. As guests arrived he told them to go away for about 15 minutes while he prepared your table. We did that, almost went somewhere else. When we came back he still had to wipe down our table as he mumbled from behind his mask.
What a novel idea--tell your customers to leave just as they enter.
Why do restaurants insist on putting their worst foot forward.
Mine are aimed the other way!
My daughter snd her boyfriend took me snd her younger sister to dinner. We order calamari as an appetizer. The breading was light and the calamari was crispy.
I ordered the chefs stir fry with chicken, Szechuan sauce and pad Thai noodles. Oh my stars! There was loads of food. We home fat and happy and a doggy box. I also had cheesecake that was so rich and creamy.
Thanks! For making my Mother’s Day and my daughters graduation special.
Perfect, everything we expected from Big Bowl - great food and exceptional service. We continue to be loyal guests.
Our server, Erica, was wonderful. She made us feel as if our business was valued. She took the time to get to know us, was efficient and personable. The manager took the time to speak and ask if our food was to our liking. The food was wonderful. I asked that my order be changed because I did not want seeds in the breading. The manager quickly made the change, was quite accommodating and nice about it. She came back to the table and told me that she stood near the counter to wait for my order just to ensure that the process was seamless. I definitely recommend the Ridgedale Big Bowl.
Renee was a great server!
The ahi tuna poke bowl was AMAZING!! So much flavor and so fresh!
Great food and friendly staff! I would definitely eat here again.
Orange chicken was surprisingly bland. I always order that and it was bland and not a as many red peppers. It was disappointing. No yum yum sauce there any longer.
THEY DO A GREAT JOB WITH COVID-19, GREAT TABLE SEPARATION, MASKS REQUIRED AND FOOD IS FABULOUS NO MORE HAPPY HOUR FOR NOW.
Very good food!
Very clean and safe environment. Every other table and booth were closed to ensure social distancing. Positive experience.
So good to see old friends (staff) makes you feel so good to walk in front door..... then the real pleasure begins with the food and drink.
We picked a good time to go there. It was quiet, the food was great, and the service was fast and friendly.
The waitress went above and beyond to meet our needs. Really great and great performance and great personally.
So wonderful to be there and be treated so well! Even a birthday treat for my friend!
Once again, the Big Bowl exceeded our family expectations. Thank you for having my family always say "Big Bowl" when asked where they wish to go out for supper this evening!
Service was spotty. Kids food came out very fast. Great! Adults food took awhile and was cold when arrived. Server pleasantly took it back to reheat. Not impressed with this restaurant.
Had a great lunch with my daughter.
Food was excellent.
Consistently good ... and the server remembers us from past visits ... makes it even more enjoyable.
The host was a dick, no parties over seven or they had to be divided and this was supposed to be a family outing. The host then became a server and complained that there were children (who were divided from their parents by plexiglass) that were not in their seats and in the way. It was the stupidest experience I’ve had out, since Covid.
Nice, fresh, flavorful food. The restaurant is spacing diners, staff are wearing masks and keeping their distance.
Brought my wife to Big Bowl for her first time, and she gave it the thumbs up — and she's very picky and not easily impressed. It was my first time back in more than a decade and I was pleased.
Egg rolls were solid; egg roll sauces were fantastic.
Wife had Pad Thai and it was solid (not amazing like Thanh Vi in Brooklyn Park, MN) but nothing at all wrong with it.
I got the Ginger Beef and Broccoli. Again, it was very nicely done.
Taking the whole dining experience together, I'll be eager to go back, and to also take along others.
I lived the convenience of online registration through Open Table. However, even though I received a reservation confirmation complete with confirmation number, Big Bowl did not have me on their books. So I don’t know what happened there but there was some glitch.
I love Big Bowl but miss full service menus. No chicken satay. No full service stir fry bar. I love lots of different mushrooms, onions, jalapeños, sprouts. Stir fry comes with premixed veggies. Can't remove any. Taste way down from normal. Hopefully, this changes soon. So over COVID-19!!!
The coconut yellow curry dish was wonderful. I had enough to share with my boyfriend the next day. A little more rice would’ve been nice to balance off all the sauce and everything. Very friendly staff and very attentive. My friend has a gluten allergy and they gave her lots of genuine attention. I definitely wanna go back soon!
Manager was fabulous- I could not remember something I had ordered previously and he aimed to please by bringing out a couple of samples for me to try - very gracious!
Chicken Pad Thai is a favorite and Big Bowl is the best
great experience on a Sunday - food was good, portions still plentiful enough to have leftovers. Our waiter was great, we had one minor issue and he took care of it, manager came over to apologize, and they took care of it right away. we will definitely go back.
I love this place! Great food. Good service. They have social distancing precautions and throw away menus, so we felt safe. Can't beat them for Thai food.
The food was wonderful but I thought the service was lacking because I was thirsty and was out of water and didn't get asked if I needed a refill until our server handed us our check. Also it was my mother's birthday and it was nice that our host wished her a Happy Birthday but I thought she might get a treat or at least ask if we wanted desert. I would recommend this place for a casual lunch or dinner but not a special occasion.
We dine here often. We love the food. Service was a bit questionable this time. Placed in the far corner of the restaurant
Excellent service, great food, covid safe, comfortable
Same great experience!
I love Big Bowl! Would recommend their pad thai to anyone! Stir fry is also amazing but better when covid isn’t a thing.
Great service and great food somewhat spicy but still soooo good
Have always had a good experience at this Big Bowl.
Big Bowl was one of our regulars before the pandemic. We were happy we could go in, sit down and have a good meal again. We have been there so much that the staff know our names and always greet us with a smile.
The food was excellent. Everyone working there were super friendly and made us feel very welcomed!
Our server was delightful! The food was delicious!
