Sat outside. Comfortable table. Of course, city noise was there! Food and service was excellent.
The hummus was delicious with warm pita bread. Pizza was large enough for two-very tasty and fresh ingredients.
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.
We ate the luncheon sandwiches and they were excellent.
Bodrum always pleases. Their outdoor seating is ample, but Amsterdam is a bit noisy. The food was delicious and the prices are reasonable.
Remains as one of my favorite UWS restaurants
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.
Have been here many times...
Consistently good!!!...classic Turkish food that is well prepared....
Reasonably priced.....Hummus is quite good!!!
Would certainly go again!
Flavorful, delectable dishes with generous service + welcoming atmosphere. A rewarding birthday experience!
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.
Food is always delicious! The eggplant in particular is my favorite.
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!
Great food, wine and service. Really happy with our experiences here.
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.
Great food and service.
We are regular diners at Bodrum. The food is delicious, service always pleasant and efficient. Outdoor dining options are plentiful.
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.
Always a superb meal - outstanding food and wonderful, thoughtful service.
This is a pleasant restaurant for lunch as well as for dinner.
My favorite and so glad they made it through the pandemic.
Food is wonderful--great Mediterranean/Turkish. Fabulous pizza.
We ate outside. The meals were tasty and the service good. Of course, there are lots of conversation-stopping sirens in NYC, but Bodrums is not to be blamed for that.
I've been coming to Bodrum since 2014, and loved it every time.
The hospitality of the management is always amazing. The stuff is on point with orders and recommendations. And the kitchen has never disappointed with any dish we ordered.
It is one of my absolute favorites!!!
Since I moved to LA last year, it was very nice to come back for dinner to Bodrum.
I would give them 10 stars 🌟 if I could.
Food is always great but the service was slower than usual.
Very good waitress, excellent food, good wine. I'd go again!
Volume was challenging bc of local construction. Otherwise exceptionally pleasant and great service!!
Homemade delicious food, friendly service and a broad menu that has something for everyone.
great outdoor setting -- feels very safe for diners
Enjoyed a fabulous dinner outdoors at Bodrum on a Monday evening. Everything we ordered was delicious, and we were kept warm and dry in the outdoor structure even with a few downpours occurring during our meal. We started with Imam Bayildi and the Mucver which were fantastic. Organic baby greens were top notch with a hint of sweetness, and the Yesil Salad was fresh and crisp and full of flavor with lots of dill and feta. The added salmon was broiled perfectly. The branzino was beautifully prepared on a bed of fennel and mixed vegetables. The servers were friendly and attentive and the whole experience was a pleasure.
Everything we ordered was delicious. Loved both the Dolma and the Shrimp appetizers. The lamb tangine was awesome as was the stuffed cabbage. Had rice pudding and baklava for dessert. We cleaned the plates!
There were 4 of us and each was very happy with their meal. Attentive service, too.
Great place! Love going there. Always a success. The best way is to order dishes to share.
Some of the best lamb I’ve ever had. Could say the same about the baklava as wel
Bodrum is one of my favorite neighborhood restaurants. Our server, who i've seen several times, was excellent - attentive and friendly and all the other staff (hostess, busing, running) were excellent too. The food is reliably fresh, tasty and reasonably priced. I love the selections on the menu - no matter how often i go, i can always find many new things to try (though my favorites are the lebne, hummas and vegetable tagine). Always happy to go there and bring friends at least every few months.
The food is always good here. Service a bit sketchy as not that busy at 730pm during week but coordination not great as once we had menus it took a long time to have someone come take our order. And usual basket of bread showed up 15 minutes later and long after drinks were brought.
Good ambiance, great service, and good selection of food and wine
Had a great dinner! The food was excellent and the staff was attentive. Will definitely be back!
You do a very good job. The food and service was excellent but you are getting too pricey. Your prices keep going up. Way up.
