Bodrum Turkish Mediterranean Ratings and Reviews
Great ambiance, in this little restaurant. It looks tight, but once your seated it’s very cozy. We had great service throughout the night. I ordered the lamb stuffed in cabbage which was exceptional, and my date had a lamb kebab which was also delicious. I highly recommend this place, and will hopefully make it back soon.
I met a good friend for lunch and we had a very good experience. It was quiet enough to be able to talk,the food(shakshuka and pizza were lovely). The service was attentive and we did not feel rushed. Only downside was the decaf coffee was disappointing. I'd definitely come back again. Also I noticed a large group was there so I'll keep that in mind.
we went for a quiet new year's eve dinner. Surprisingly the restaurant wasn't terribly crowded and the noise level was moderate/quiet and made for enjoyable conversation. The service was friendly and efficient, the food was great, and overall it was a very nice evening in comfortable surroundings.
This small and appealing restaurant has a limited menu focused on Mediterranean/Turkish dishes, and if you choose well you can have a very good meal without breaking the bank. At a dinner with a friend recently, we shared a salad and a very decent bottle of wine, each of us had a reasonably priced main course, and the bill was less than $100. The place is low-profile and aimed at people — mostly locals — who actually want to talk to each other. There is nothing flashy or cool about it, nobody is drinking too much or talking too loudly. Service is friendly and well paced. Highly recommended if this description appeals to you.
We love Bodrum. A reliable, inviting neighborhood spot with dependable, delicious food. Good place to catch up with family or friends while enjoying a satisfying meal. My only issue is they give a tiny portion of rice with their meals. Just enough but not a grain more. Probably the more responsible way to eat but I do miss having more, especially because it is so good.
As usual, Bodrum delivered. Lovely service (including dealing with food allergies), great food, and lovely people. The restaurant is loud and you sit close to others when it's busy, but as long as it doesn't bother you, you're good to go.
Can't go wrong. Recommended!
This is an excellent little place on the Upper West Side. The service is always friendly and efficient. While it is somewhat of a Turkish cuisine, there are plenty of options. The stuffed cabbage is exceptional. The hummus, a bit different than normal, has a wonderful flavor. It's a small place - recommend making reservations. The lamb options - all that we've tried have been lovely.
Decent ethnic Mediterranean dishes, good value for the price. Appetizers (mucver and manti) are usually their strongest suit. Had a lamb & eggplant dish (Sultan's delight) that was smokey and delicious; my usual favorite Branzino with pistachio nuts was a tad bland this time, not as flavorful as previously. Rice pudding offered a nice light sweet dessert. Service is not exceptional but brisk and efficient.
I have eaten at Bodrum before but this time my dining experience left much to be desired. Both the entrée, Branzino with leaks and vegetables, and dessert, baked rice pudding, were totally bland, no taste. They tasted like cardboard. The only good item was the bread and chocolate gelato. Will never go there again.
We come to Bodrum fairly often for the healthy Mediterranean food and low key atmosphere, but we've never been for brunch before. It was great - quiet, with interesting non-hollandaise-laden choices, and a no-rush atmosphere. I can now highly recommend it for brunch as well as dinner.
Good solid Food. We shared a Shepard’s salad that was just right for two. Added the feta for $2.
I ordered the lamb tangine and my friend had lamb sis kebab. Lamb was cooked to order. With a beer and a glass of wine the bill came to $92 with gratuity. A little pricey in my opinion. Service was attentive.
We were surprised how good the food was at Bodrum. I had stuffed cabbage that was excellent. My husband had lamb tangine. We wish we had gone back the next day instead of going to a Chinese restaurant also on the upper west side. There, the noise was deafening and the food not so good.
We’ve travelled in Turkey and this is comparable ; friendly staff.
We had an early dinner before going to the opera so were among the first few patrons. I believe the noise loud when the restarant is full but it wasn't an issue for us. Also the tables are small and close together but again, we didn't feel crowded because the place was fairly empty. The food was wonderful. I can highly recommend the dumplings with lamb filling in a yogurt sauce. My husband ordered lamb shank which was delicious and falling off the bone. A lovely dinner.
I brought a group of 7 friends together to dine before a play. I know that they enjoy Turkish food and took a chance based on location and reviews.
We throughly enjoyed everything we ordered
from the zucchini pancakes to the succulent lamb shank.
Service was wonderful, filling our plates with warm delicious Turkish bread several times.
Looking forward to a return trip.
