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.

                              Always good. We had 5 or 6 appetizers among 3 of us. Generous portions . one of our favorite spots in nyc. Wait help very nice. They didn’t rush us for our table. Really good food.

                              First dinner back at Bodrum since the beginning of Covid. No surprise, dinner was as good as ever and plus for value. The sis-kebabs were delicious, and the baked bread is itself worth the visit.

                              I asked specifically to be given a table outside on the sidewalk and, after a wait for some people to finish eating and paying their bill, I got it. Food is always good. Service was a bit slow with the waiter not understanding that one of my two appetizers was in fact a main dish for me, so my companion was left with me eating for 10-15 mins without her main and only dish being served so she could eat with me. 3 x is too much to have to ask to have that rectified. Generally, it was a really pleasant experience.

                              One of our go tos when in NY. The cozy outside heated booths are perfect for visiting with friends, the food is absolutely delicious, and the service is warm and friendly. Highly recommend the Mediterranean sampler, and everything eggplant!

                              I and my fellow diners enjoyed our dinners (salmon, chicken and lamb) as well as the hummus and babaganoush appetizers. The latter was accompanied by delicious bread. The wait staff was pleasant and attentive without being intrusive. I'd definitely recommend Bodrum if you're looking for a place on the Upper West Side.

                              We only had appetizers which were delicious though for this guest, and not my guest, everything was either fried or had a lot of oil. If that is ok, the the food is delicious which I thought it was.

                              Great food, great service. A typical crowded NYC restaurant, so a bit loud at times. Tables are hard to get during peak hours, so be sure to make reservations.

                              We eat here often, it's our neighborhood go-to. Tonight though, the food was sub-par as was the service. The restaurant was also very crowded.

                              Delicious, simply prepared Mediterranean food at reasonable prices. Everything on the meze plate was scrumptious - hummus, babaganoush, lebne, phyllo pockets stuffed with lamb were all perfectly prepared. Roasted branzino was excellent as was the wood fire-roasted chicken and chicken kebabs. Bodrum is my go-to place on the UWS for an all around wonderfully satisfying dining experience.

                              Bodrum was our go to restaurant when we lived in the Upper West Side. Now that we live in Hell's Kitchen, we still make a point of eating there. Both alone and with friends. Their pizzas, thin and baked in a brick oven, are great. I love there Köfte, either a plate or a wrap. It has some of the best lentil soup in the city. Everyone we have taken there from the city, has made return visits alone.

                              Really nice atmosphere and service was great! All the food was delicious and was served at the right time. The only thing was that the hummus was just not as great as other Mediterranean/Turkish restaurants and the portion was also small. Everything was really good and would definitely come back.

                              We had a great meal at Bodrum. We both had fish dishes - the tangine and the branzino. They were delicious. So flavorful and came with delicious vegetables. We ate inside and felt very comfortable. The tables were far apart and there was plastic between the tables. We cannot wait to go back.
