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.

First time dining at this restaurant. Loved it!!! Wish we were not in a pandemic so as to enjoy indoor dining.

In Covid-19 times this was an excellent choice. Outdoor seating was nicely spaced and comfortable, food was really good and the prices reasonable for food quality and presentation, and service.

We found a new place! Yes, I know it's been there a while, but somehow we just never went. We decided to try it based on good reviews and ample outdoor space. The food was just what we wanted. Moussaka was delicious and an ample portion (lunch the next day!), rich and satisfying. Everyone enjoyed their meal, appetizers were good and wine prices okay for the area.

We will definitely return, or at least get delivery as the weather cools down.

Food & service as excellent as usual. What's most important right now is what an amazing job they have done during the pandemic. I've been there twice during the pandemic (both outdoor dining) and felt absolutely safe how seriously they took safety measures (great social distancing between tables too). This is probably one of a very few places I feel safe enough to go with my child.

Have been coming to this place for a long time. Have not been since the quarantine was lifted so wanted to come and support. Long story short the food was just as amazing but the service was he worst I have ever had there. Apparently they had sat us but failed to notify our server that a table was seated so we had to ask for everything. We had to ask for glasses, for water, napkins, cocktail refills. Every part of the the dinner we had to flag someone down until the main server finally came over and apologized and explained the situation about not being notified . She definitely saved the day. She was blonde with black squarish glasses. The last part of our meal was pleasant as we started to get better service thanks to her. The gentleman that sat us and just left us walked out as i guess it was the end of his shift and he didnt care. Mind you it was cold but we know that the restaurant business needs to be supported . I was embarrassed by their service as I was recommending this place to the two friend I brought. Luckily the food is amazing . Just feel that in times likes this the service is even more important then ever before.

They have tables on sidewalk. Because there is a bike lane and then a lane of parked cars, this is pretty far from traffic and so quite quiet for outdoor dining on an avenue.

Food and service are good.

Due to the virus Bodrum is only open for outdoor dining, utilizing space on Amsterdam Avenue, both in the gutter and on the sidewalk in front. No issues with food or service, which allowed us to sit without interruption for over two hours. The issue is the noise on Amsterdam Avenue, especially cars with loud radios going by, it is very annoying and distracting. Alas, I realize that this is New York.

They have a nice outdoor dining set up with all COVIF measure being followed. The baba ganoush, wood baked bread, pizza and lamb kebobs were all excellent. Some of the best lamb I've had in some time. The baba ganoush was nice and smoky! Will definitely return.

Everything was great. The outdoor venue was cool and comfortable. We sat for hours and the staff was completely OK with it. One little thing is the portion size was a little smaller than usual but in these pandemic times that is much of a problem.

The restaurant seemed understaffed, so it took longer than usual to do everything; get seated, order, get the actual food (appetizer came after the main dish..), ask for the dessert menu and then pay the actual check. I was flailing my arms at one point to try to get anyone to notice us. The server was very nice though when she actually came over. The main dish was very good; I had Turkish kebab and rice, and my friend had Adana kebab. Baklava was a little dry though. Good outdoor seating area with decent social distancing measures. Utensils were individually wrapped in saran wrap and all of the staff were wearing masks.

Unfortunately dining on the sidewalk and worse in the street is verynosiy and unpleasant. Huge trucks come by was well as sirens. We couldn't hear a lt of the time because of traffic noise and sirens.The food is goo, though they have made the menu look different from their usual menu. I kinda preferred the old one, but they seem to be using the new ones as a place mat. A great place when the traffic is low, there's a breeze, and you're not baking in the sun!

The portion for the main course we ordered (the fish tagine) was very small for $23. It had 5 small bite-size pieces of fish and a small amount of vegetables. When we told the manager, she responded that this was the portion for this fish since the restaurant opened, and did not validate our disappointment. She did send dessert on the house, but we had ordered dessert already so we didn’t even touch it. We didn’t understand why they didn’t give us the dessert that we had ordered on the house. It made no sense.
I had been to this restaurant several times before and never had an unpleasant experience in the past. I will not return given the small portions for the price and the poor customer service.

We love this place - the food is fresh and delicious. We're particularly partial to the hummos and babaganoush, Moussaka, Manti and the Adana Kebab. The pizza's are also delicious! However don't ever go without a reservation.

Delicious food, tastes homemade. Try all the apps. The pizzas are great, too. Lovely service. We had such a leisurely lunch and weren't rushed at all. We opened belated Christmas gifts and were even given a bag for the wrappings. Great food, great service at a very good price.

We have dined several times in the past two years.
All seasons.
Food always good and service friendly and attentive.
Wine prices have jumped - bottles seem especially overpriced and least expensive glass is usually $12.

Nice cozy atmosphere, friendly staff. Excellent good and value for money. I will keep going there at every opportunity. Lamb tajine and manti really good. Does not get very loud even if it's full. Highly recommended.
