Flavorful food, wide selection of food. Convenient location. Outdoor space was nice. I had the fried zucchini chips with romanesco and salmon. My friend had the hummus and burger. For dessert we had the churros and the pineapple empanada. Everything was delicious!

Do not come here. Worst service ever experienced. Took 45 minutes to get our first drinks. Then we kept trying to order food and the waiter would say "gimme a few mins" then disappear. This happened 3 times. On top of that the charge took a month to post to our credit cards. The establishment seems nice and the food was decent but they are completely disorganized.

Not what I was expecting. It’s a quiet restaurant almost feels forgotten as the in-hotel dining option at the Hyatt. Food was good but not a spot I’d run back to

This restaurant is underrated! The eggplant hummus like dip was delicious. It was paired with zucchini chips, YUM! I had a margarita, that I was served in a little glass that I got to pour myself. I had the shrimp tacos which were flavorful and delicious. My boyfriend had the burger and he loved it. We will be returning. Such a beautiful restaurant.

Some traffic noise when emergency vehicle went by, but overall, quiet and easy to have a conversation outside, and the salads and seafood were very fresh local ingredients from farmers. It was an enjoyable and healthy early dinner at 4:00pm with no crowds like other restaurants in the area.

Bowery Road was so great- the manager helped me when I told him we were dining with an immunocompromised person, and reassured me with all of the precautions the restaurant is taking (including individually wrapped silverware). Our waitress was incredible, she knew our situation and was very accommodating and she was so fun and friendly. We had a great experience dining here.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Bowery Road. Starting with pandemic prep, they did a great job of separating the outside tables and cleaning them between guests, and the servers wore their masks properly the entire time. I ordered one of their specialty cocktails, which come in small and large, and when the bell jar arrived I was sure they had accidentally brought me a large - there were at least 3-4 drinks in the jar - but it was the small. And a very tasty Manhattan. The meal was very good, starting with a mushroom and truffle pizzetta bursting with flavor. I had a delicious snapper and my date had a terrific roasted half chicken that was more than standard size. And for dessert we had a pineapple empanada with caramel that is now one of our favorites. The service was very good and friendly (and the host offered to let me keep my bicycle stashed inside instead of locking it up). I hope to return.

I went to brunch with my best friend. We sat across from the bar to avoid the dining room where a large table had a few babies. So it was nice and quiet. We had a lovely server who kept making me my coffee half caf and half regular. She was very sweet. And we were not rushed.

One of the best meals we’ve had in the city! HOWEVER, the service was extremely slow. There was only one waiter for the restaurant - and he was also helping the bartender! We were there for almost 30 minutes before ordering - and sat with finished plates on the table for 20 minutes. What should have been a 1-1.5 hour dinner - turned into a 2.5 hour dinner. We weren’t in a hurry - but the pace of the meal left us tired and ready to go. The waiter never once apologized or even recognized what was happening.

Also, the restaurant is connected to a hotel. They sat us by the door that connected the two. Guests, bartender, runners, etc we’re constantly in-and-our that door! It was both distracting and annoying by the end of the evening.

The food was amazing, tho! The chef is not being used to his full potential by not having a full-house every night!

In looking back on my dining history of 2019 and already early in 2020, Bowery Road has been my "go to" restaurant choice for friends, clients and family. In addition to my dining there, I have referred colleagues and visitors from around the country and also friends from London. All have written and thanked me!

Was very disappointed. Despite a reservation and a bunch of empty tables was told the only seating was at the bar. Waiter got the order wrong and when the busboy delivered the correct order he was downright rude. Food was OK but overpriced.Not sure what they’re going for but it was a fairly unpleasant experience.
