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.

Food was really good. I would’ve loved to have a mixed platter option (that’s typical with Turkish restaurants) and more Turkish desserts.

First time at this type of restaurant - the food options were great and I enjoyed the "Lamb Sis Kabob"!

The sliced bread was hot so that was an added perk! Our waiter was totally on point, the greeters when entering were professional, and this was the first time I was actually asked to provide proof of vaccination and ID. It was a breeze!

I would definitely return again soon!

Everything was delicious. The lentil soup had a very different spicing from that of the common restaurant versions. I was surprised by the shape of the Bastilla as I was used to the Moroccan round one. I wish the leak dish had been more substantial.
The stuffed cabbage with lamb was also a surprise taste as I’d had eaten all my live beef and pork stuffed cabbage. It was so good it convinced me to use lamb next time I make some.
We ended the meal with a delicious and not too sweet baklava and Turkish coffee (which must have some sugar).

I was disappointed this time. The mousaka was not terribly good and the lamb tagine was also disappointing. The bread was as wonderful as usual. Not sure why the food was so "off."

The food remains very good for the value. The service was non existent after the entre was delivered. If you are going to Bodrum an off time would be best.

I had high hopes for this place. Alas, it was disappointing. Some food had weird mix of Turkish and Italian--gratuitous red sauce.

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.

Consistently amazing food and service. The inside is comfortable and cozy with the exposed brick walls and decor, and they did a nice job at setting up a cute and covered outdoor area. My husband and I have eaten here for years and always take friends from out of town here when they visit because we love it so much.

Highly recommend the baba ganoush, any of the pizzas, and the vegetable tagine.

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!

The hummus was delicious with warm pita bread. Pizza was large enough for two-very tasty and fresh ingredients.
