Turkish
Named after the spectacular port city on the Mediterranean’s Turquoise coast, Bodrum breathes some fresh air into the NYC’s Upper West Side with an ambitious, unique menu of Mediterranean food. With Turkish, Greek, Lebanese, French & Italian culinary influences (just to name a few), Bodrum places brick oven pizza next to mezzes, kebabs next to fish, finding a common thread that unifies Mediterranean cuisines.

We loved this restaurant! The service was remarkable - incredibly attentive without being overly formal. The food was beautifully prepared and just inventive enough to make it unique. The chocolate pastry dessert was mind blowing!!!!

Bodrum has vegetarian options and a great service. Brunch and dinner are the times we visit. Pizza is thin crust and very tasty.

Love Bodrum and only wish the din could be lowered. We come alone because our friends won't put up with the noise. Too bad you can't do some noise abatement. When the weather is warm and the windows are open, it's much better.

I have been dining at Bodrum at least twice a week for the last three years. Took a short hiatus of about three months because of a leg injury.
Upon returning I ordered one of my favorites, Yesil salad with shrimp, to find that the salad was so incredibly small that I was still hungry. I am not a huge eater at 112 pounds but was very surprised and resentful at this stinginess.
I even asked if there was a new owner

Also my friend felt same way about the salad SHE ordered
If you are going to scrimp portions with lettuce,
they is really pitiful. We will consider going elsewhere now .
For that same price Nice Matin,
French Roast , 5 Napkin Burger all give normal size salads

This neighborhood eatery has a casual ambiance and very good food. The service is professional and friendly, the variety of food is very satisfactory for both meat overs and vegetarians, which I am. Monday wine specials are a big plus. Great bread!

This restaurant is a favorite of ours as we live in the neighborhood. In our opinion it's good value for the money, and it's a nice place to take company and out of town visitors. We have been there several times, and have always had a great experience. The staff has always been attentive and friendly as well.

The cuisine and service were great as usual. I had
Colorado lamb chops, which were accompanied by Turkish style rise and grilled veggies. The lamb chops were juicy and tender.
My friend had grilled salmon served with ratatouille, and she approved wholeheartedly.
The Turkish bread baked in a furnace is to die for.
I highly recommend this restaurant.

The bread, straight from the wood-fired oven, is in itself worth the visit. But all the food is delicious, service prompt and friendly. A neighborhood favorite.

What a great find this restaurant was! My husband and I loved it. The bread is outstanding and the merguezsausage pizza was wonderful as was the b'stilla. It was our first time here but it certainly won't be our last! Next time, the lamb shank and other tasty treats...

It was phenomenal. The baba ghanoush was smoky and flavorful. The moussaka was juicy and filling. Even the bread and oil and olives were exceptionally delicious! The bread came warm and toasty.
Everything exceeded expectations and I will definitely return.

One of my neighborhood favorites! Took a friend out for her birthday and she was so thrilled with the food, she wants to bring her husband from Queens! First, she loved the bread (oh, yes!). We had lamb dumplings (Mantl), zucchini pancakes (out of this world) with garlic yogurt dip (Mucver) to split as appetizers. She chose the lamb chops and I chose the Moussaka. We were over the moon and took leftovers home. Highly recommend and make sure you make a reservation. The restaurant is full most of the time...
During nice weather, there is more seating outside. Lovely.

We love this place and eat here or order in at least once a week. If we're not in the mood for a whole meal, we order the hummus and an extra side of the bread- which is always fresh, hot and delicious. We've never had anything bad here! Highly recommend.

Delicious authentic Turkish food as well as excellent pizzas. Went with a party of ten people, all of whom ordered a different dish and each of us was very happy with his or her meal. The restaurant is a very popular UWS destination and is not very large so reservations are sometimes difficult to get. Be sure to call well in advance.
