Bodrum Turkish Mediterranean
love this place, great food, amazing friendly staff!
I am an enthusiastic frequent customer of Bodrum's. The food is very good and the setting is pleasant.
Very good food and excellent service by servers who did not rush us when we wanted to linger.
We have dined at Bodrum several times and have always had a great meal at a reasonable price. Sitting outside on a beautiful summer evening is lovely. Great pizzas, great fish, and the best bread.
The Shepard Salad and the salmon with ratatouille are delicious.
Thought the food was only adequate. Cocktails were fair. Diappointing
A nice neighborhood place that gives great value for the price. It's Turkish, or more accurately Turkish-American, which means there's a range of offerings so there's something for anyone. Among meat dishes, lamb is an expected specialty. Three of us there recently all had lamb dishes, and all of us were pleased. I had the lamb shank with couscous, tender braised lamb in a tomato sauce; the couscous seasoned with raisins was a great accompaniment. Wine and spirits available (including some Turkish wines if you are adventurous). Good service. Outdoor seating. Moderate noise level, depending on how crowded the place is.
Food was fantastic
Great food and service
One of my favorite neighborhood restaurants. I usually have dinner there and it was a nice change to join a friend who also loves Bodrum for lunch. Wish they would bring back the EFES dark beer! Highly recommend.
Very good food. Don’t miss the imam biyaldi eggplant! Attentive waitstaff. A little noisy.
The brunch menu really didn’t work for us. 3 people, 3 different choices and all were average at best. We’ve eaten here many times for lunch and dinner and were always happy. So maybe it was the brunch menu...
Always reliable: good food, authentic menu, attentive and efficient service, good value, neighborhood favorite.
Great food, nice service....my go-to restaurant for almost any occasion. Lunch or dinner...both fine. The bread is outstanding. Other faves: manti (Turkish ravioli), stuffed cabbage, imam bayildi, sheesh-kebab.
We had a good time. the only problem with my food was the salt. Too much. But my friends enjoyed their gilled salmon very much.
Great place to have a nice dinner out with friends. We were really impressed with the food, especially the lamb tagine, and they were very accommodating to us when one of our party came half an hour late. Very nice ambiance with lots of natural light due to the large windows and there's plenty of space (it doesn't feel crowded). Would recommend!
The dinner was delicious. I had salmon and my friend had chicken. The Babaganush is excellent.
I have been to the restaurant on a number of occasions and have always been pleased. This time, however, the food was very poor. The lamb that one of my guests ordered was inedible and the salmon was tasteless. I am wondering if the restaurant has changed chefs.
A delicious selection of Turkish and Mediterranean foods at a great price, with excellent service.
I just love Bodrum. Their bread (fresh baked in coal oven) is just totally worth the trip, and the Shepherd salad w feta, hummus and Labneh, all delicious and fresh, are all better because of the bread! I had the roast chicken with vegetable since I had always been intrigued by it and it was delicious and well prepared. Others at table were happy with their meals - the shrimp casserole appetizer looked amazing and was enjoyed by those who had it. The pistachio crusted salmon was was tasty & perfectly cooked with a yummy ratatouille side. Go here - but make a reservation. Very popular spot and some of the best Turkish food around.
Fabulous neighborhood gem. Our go-to right-around-the-corner restaurant with outstanding cuisine. Especially outstanding is the home-made brick-oven pita bread.
Keep saying it's a neighborhood fine...and it still is...but it would be wise to make a reservation. Others know about this find and seating might be difficult...
It is a shame that the noise level is so poor that it outweighs everything else. I would not go back for this reason.
This place is a real gem on the UWS. Food and service are consistently outstanding. The atmosphere is really nice too.
The bread is good -- it is always nice to accent the positive!
Food was very disappointing -- did not meet my expectations after reading the reviews of others. Service was excellent and it has a nice atmosphere.
Excellent food very warm and nice atmosphere good price
Food was outstanding. Highly recommend. Bread and pizza are amazing!
Always a good dinner....stuffed cabbage was amazing!!
This is one if the few places that is consistently delicious. All the appetizers, bsba ganoush, hummus, are wonderful. I especially love their pear and walnut pizza, as well as their lentil soup.
Always delicious! A modest place that produces food worth going back to many times.
Very good mezze and the pizza's were delicious!
Great neighborhood find. The food choices are varied and tasty, the staff is friendly and the service is right-on....make a reservation and arrive early so you can choose a table near the wall or window to keep the noise to one side. Would definitely recommend to family & friends. Out-of-towners would get to have a genuine Big Apple dining experience.
Just a local and lovable neighborhood spot.
Always good, dependable Turkish cuisine. Yummy. I had the grilled salmon crusted with coriander with ratatouille, my friend had the grilled lamb chops. All good. Including the Turkish red wine.
Lunch with an college friend
Perfect as always
I was nit happy with our seating for two it was an awkward table squeeze in and felt very unpleasant for myself and guest. It was a two person near the door and greeters but made to accomodate bigger party. First time i had pizza there. Very mediocre,liitle toppings ,nothing special. Ive beenthere many times before. I’ll stick with mediterranean food,much more interesting.
Very quaint restaurant with excellent service. The wait staff was very friendly and the food was excellent. I had the lamb shank and it was simply delicious! I took a group of friends here for dinner before we headed to the theater. They were very happy with my restaurant selection. Definitely make a reservation as this is a small venue.
