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.

As Turkish cuisine goes, it was quite good. It came close to some foods i've eaten throughout Turkey, especially on the Bodrum peninsula. The staff was congenial, and extremely attentive. I would recommend the Manti very much. Noise levels were a bit high , as we had to sit inside due to cooler weather outside. I brought our 'dinner group' there this month, and all were extremely pleased.

I would very much recommend Bodrum Turkish Mediterranean.

The food is yummy, and the ambiance is nice. 2 apps, 3 entrees, 2 teas, 1 mimosa - $90 w/o tip. However, our server was overwhelmed with tables and we were left waiting 20 minutes for him to come over to take our order. In the meantime, the hostess apologized and came to take our drink order. When the server came over to our table, he didn’t apologize for the delay, didn’t smile the entire time, and wasn’t attentive throughout our lunch. When asking him for recommendations on the menu, he became flustered and frustrated with us. I can understand feeling overwhelmed and busy, but half the experience of dining is how pleasant your server is. Hopefully management can do a better job of not overwhelming their staff so customers can enjoy the full dining experience.

Love the food here, the service is great. The trucks and motorcycles make outdoor dining difficult, but that's not your fault. Best hummus and lentil soup in NYC.

Tried lunch this time -- reduced menu and pandemic tilt (like...pizzas!) but the caliber of the food was good and they did the sidewalk seating thing early and well. Service also good and the lunch was very enjoyable. Keep up the good work!

I love this place. Very relaxed atmosphere, attentive staff, reasonable prices. Everything I've tried here is excellent but quite honestly, my favorites so far are the sampling plate and the sumac salad. Just delicious!

Lovely to sit outside. the space is pleasant and the service is very good and attentive. I always get the Shepherd's Salad with feta -- fresh and well seasoned. We ordered Chicken Adna and the Vegetable Tagine. Both were delicious.

This place is simple, nothing fancy, but our food was delicious (lots to choose from on the menu), wine was excellent, and service could not have been better or more cordial. Will definitely return.

We were very disappointed. Bodrum used to be one of our favorites but now their food has taken a turn for the worse. My husband ordered their chicken shish kabob dinner The chicken was very dry. I ordered Margarita Pizza, which used to be delicious but no longer is. The pizza had no taste and after 2 bites I sent it back. My husband tried to eat some of his chicken dish. I don’t know if there’s a new chef or if the food has just gone down hill. It makes me sad that a favorite neighborhood restaurant will no longer be one of our favorites.

Love Bodrum, consistently delicious. On this visit, my daughter and I shared Sigara Borek, a simple Turkish filo stuffed with feta and Parsley, perfectly cooked and scrumptious. Great light appetizer. We both had moussaka. This version is without potato, so filling but not too heavy. For dessert, we shared chocolate pudding. I am not a big chocolate eater, but this was a perfect button for the meal. Overall, we had a lovely time.

Very good salad! Zucchini patties tasty but a bit oily. Waiters awesome but one of the bus boys cleared my friends' plates before I was done (rude)...and asked if I was finished while my fork was poised over my remaining bites (uh, what do you think?). Atmosphere was great - I'll be back.

Excellent food, service,value. Very nice outdoor seating. Noise level moderate because of street traffic and, alas, horns. Otherwise, nearly perfect. Our server was terrific. Extra yogurt sauce for dish brought promptly and cheerfully. We'll be back!

For Turkish food on the Upper West Side, Bodrum is a wonderful restaurant. The staff was very accommodating, and the food met our expectations. The outdoor seating options are comfortable, and (apart from traffic noise, typical in NYC) they're very pleasant. The service was mostly excellent, and the one gaffe was minor.

We had a lovely dinner in the outdoor shed. Our server was outstanding. We had pomegranate martinis that seemed to be devoid of alcohol, which was disappointing, and a very lovely Turkish white wine that was light and delicious. The food was all scrape-your-plate good. I wouldn't order mixed drinks there again, yet all else was lovely, so I will definitely be back!

The food was quite good and very diverse menu. We enjoyed dinner very much. Odd that they were only accepting outdoor reservations when we signed up for a table and very few were 2-person tables with protection from the rain. However they did find us a nice indoor table, of which there seemed to be quite a few. Definitely we'll go back.

I had the poached eggs on spinach that was served with a perfectly dressed side salad. Everything was fresh and delicious. The yogurt sauce was subtle and added a lovely flavor. My brother, who cannot resist anything "wood roasted," had the chicken. It was beautifully spiced and came with potatoes and vegetables.
