Big Bowl Ridgedale
I've been to Big Bowl over a hundred times, and this isn't an exaggeration. But this time was different - I have a broken left foot so I was using a scooter, and the restaurant is far from handicap friendly. The restaurant door was closed, and there was a no host at the entrance till I entered. Using the bathroom is even more challenging. The Thai Basil Chicken recipe seems to have changed because it didn't taste anything like I have tasted before but it was still decent.
Just came for dinner love the teriyaki’s chicken fried y
I Did ask specifically for a candle in a piece of chocolate fudge cake. This was overlooked, and no one gave a reason. I thought it was a pretty small thing to ask . To be fair, the host said happy birthday to my husband when he seated us.There’s obviously a disconnect between the app and the servers.
Food was good, as it always is.
I love the stir-try bar!
Amazing food and atmosphere! Unfortunately, the worst waitress we have ever had. Thankfully management seemed receptive:)
Awesome server, thank you again! Food was wonderful always enjoy going to big bowl
Big Bowl is always very consistent. I switched it up this time for Mongolian Beef. The flavor is excellent, very fresh scallions, tender steak, and great sauce. Also had the squash soup - outstanding. Very good food! Service was also very good!
Service and food were great. Pretty noisy but expected that on a Friday night.
My "Birthday Buddy" and I went for our annual birthday lunch together. We loved our meal and had a great visit. I tried the Shrimp Stir-Fry bar and it was awesome!
My family and I have been to Big Bowl dozens of times since it first opened at Ridgedale. It is one of our favorite meal destinations. But Friday night we were less than happy with our experience since we let ourselves get talked into sitting in a booth in the bar area. Being seated there, it was noisier than usual and though he wears hearing aides, my husband struggled to follow the conversation at times. Our main concern though was the fact that a family of 7 or 8 people was seated on the high top tables along the wall, all of them facing the bar but really facing us. It felt as though they were staring at us while they waited for their food because I suppose they really had nowhere else to look. Because they were spread out along the wall, it looked as though it was hard for them to just converse with each other. I will definitely keep this experience in mind for future trips to Big Bowl.
It was a fairly busy night but the restaurant was not staffed adequately. There were several parties with reservations waiting to be seated and the servers were spread thin. Four of us ordered the stir fry bar and they were served very dry like they hadn’t been cooked with much sauce. Had to ask several people for more sauce, since our server was busy. Was told they had to make it from scratch so we waited to eat our food that was already sitting in front of us. The food just wasn’t as good this night. It’s an expensive dinner for being sub par service and food.
Always live big bowl
Best Asian casual dining restaurant and as always food is great.
The food was good however the noise level made it difficult to hear conversations at the table.
As a family, we truly enjoy our dinners at Big Bowl. Actually, a favorite place for many.
I've decided this is currently my FAVORITE place to eat out!!
This used to be a favorite place to go but in recent years it has gone down hill.
I no longer recognize the food. My sesame chicken was overpowered with some type of gloppy sauce that I didn't recognize and there appeared to be bits and pieces from some other dish included.
The ambiance seems tired and worn down from what it used to be.
I always liked the zippy special ginger ale they served. This time it was watery and had no tangy zip.
First time to this location though long-time patron of the brand. Seemed to arrive at a peak time but no excuse for waiting to be sat, then waiting for even water. It was exactly 20 minutes after arriving that water appeared on the table. No manager in-sight (rare for any Lettuce Entertain You property) until later when, with oversight and an extra pair of hands, things were decidedly better. Food, as always, was outstanding. Great flavors and value-for-money. Watching service, our table and elsewhere, made me give 4 stars not the usual 5 but hopefully that was just a one-time exception. To be safe though, perhaps next visit to the Twin Cities I'll go back to the Edina location.
Food was decent but the service was poor. It was a little busy when we arrived, but nothing that should've caused the delays we experienced. A few of us asked for food to be wrapped and none of us were given the food we ordered - no one was going home to the same house so when I got home and saw the food I was given wasn't what I ordered, it went into the garbage instead of the fridge (thus I paid full price for a 1/2 order of food).
The waiter was one of the best I've ever had. He kept our drinks full. He kept our table clean. Very attentive. The food was outstanding. Hot in temperature.
Best Pad Thai and great service. It's always busy, but get waited on and served quickly.
Hostess, servers and chefs were accommodating, happy and personable. A delightful experience.
We love visiting this Big Bowl location, food and service are always great!
Has been my favourite from last few months. Tried lunch bar and green curry. Exceptional taste!!!
It took 45 mins to get our app. The soup was luke warm. Not impressed.
Great food and very nice waiters. Nice place. Thank you!
i love the food but the noise level is an issue. You cant hear guests talking at the same table with you.
Potstickers are very good. Service is good. A bit pricey, and was disappointed with the stir fry, which usually is amazing. May have been an off night.
We were seated in the bar area which was much more quiet than the main restaurant area. This was perfect for us as we were two couples catching up! Food was great and service was great as well.
We enjoyed dining outdoors and had good attentive service. we each had dishes we've eaten before so no surprises, which is a good thing.
Awesome service. Love the outdoor space!
Again, great service and tasty food! We tried a number of new dishes as well as their weekly special, and were not disappointed! If you have a group with varying dietary preferences, this is the place to go to make sure everyone gets something delicious!
Absolutely loved my chicken pad Thai! Our server was delightful.
Gotcha day. Victoria was great!
This time around, the restaurant was much better staffed, so we did not have long waits for food or beverages. The wait staff and the runners seemed very coordinated. Food was delicious!
Excellent food, and the service was good, but they seemed short-staffed throughout the restaurant. Had to wait for extended periods of time for both the server and the food. But our server got everything right and the food was outstanding!
haven't been there for years--was great! Definitely willb e back--be part of the Foodsby program!
Loved our server, she took great care of us!
Always consistent, fresh and delicious!
