Booked the heated yurt for a birthday dinner. It was more incredible than we could’ve thought. Our waitress Kara was the best waitress we’ve ever had!! (She definitely deserves a raise!!!) we loved our entire experience there and definitely will come back.

We had Yurt for dinner and it was great. The ambiance was so cute and they had a heater going. I was a bit cold, but there were blankets provided. We only had two people for a date night, but I imagine it’s warmer with more bodies. The waitress was great, food came fast and she even had us take some food to go to make our minimum. We would definitely go back.

Fantastic experience! Felt very COVID-safe and it was kind of a unique adventure to dine in Yurts! The food was delicious, the ambience was really fun, the temperature inside the yurts was fine, and the service was outstanding! I hope they keep these post-COVID!
Can't wait to go again!

We reserved one of the yurts for a special event this week. In theory, it is such a cute concept. We knew of the time restrictions in advance and this was repeated when we arrived, which is totally fine. Unfortunately, we were given the 'bums rush' which really left us annoyed. We had reserved the yurt for 90 minutes and the service was awesome so we didn't feel rushed eating our meals. The drinks arrived super quickly and we were really impressed with the waitress. We were all leisurely finishing the last of our cocktails, when the manager came in at 6:45 (our reservation was through 7:00) and told us the next party had arrived and to finish up. To further inspire us to leave, she left the zipper completely open so the yurt was then totally cold and of course uncomfortable. It's too bad because we knew we had a time limit and that we were paying a premium for the yurt experience and were OK with that. I don't know if I would recommend this experience and suggest 1. you dress very warmly since it is rather chilly and 2. expect to be rushed out the door before your time is up.

Stumbled upon this place a few months back and been coming almost weekly with my friend. COOKIE SKILLET IS EVERYTHING. Our girl Rosaline behind the bar knows our drink order when we walk in and shakes up the best espresso martinis.

Went for brunch for a friends birthday. Good thing I made a reservation because it was a busy Saturday brunch. The hangover bowl is amazing, highly recommend adding hot sauce to it for a kick and the adult ice coffee was a perfect hair of the dog.

The outdoor patio at the Bowery cannot be beat. It is a beautiful space, and there is plenty of room so social distancing is not a problem. The staff is very warm and friendly.

We ordered the baja chicken sandwich and the French dip. Both were very good--hearty servings and quite tasty.

We had a wonderful lunch in the patio area of this restaurant during one of the late fall warm days.

We were happy to see that the service, food and ambience of this area has improved greatly over previous restaurants at this spot. Everything was better than expected, The service was first rate and the food is well above average.

We did not eat indoors but it appears the food and bar areas were well protected and clean and an effort has been made to keep everyone safe,

We definitely will be back. Highly recommended.

The kale brussels salad was my favorite! And our server was fantastic. I forgot her name (sorry) but what I loved was how she offered recommendations. As a vegan, she told us what smelled so good that it tempted her to break veganism. That was EVERYTHING!
